"Not likely" Basic primer for this. 1) LED - Light Emitting Diode. Small, super efficient component that creates light through electroluminescence.

be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 Review
So what did I like about this case? Well, pretty much everything. The fit and finish confirm what I have seen with other be quiet! products, which is that no corners are cut to save money. The chassis is robust and the workmanship of the assembly is top-notch. As far as functionality goes, there is a ton of room in the case and by room, I mean the ability to handle multiple fans, liquid cooling, multiple hard drives, and large motherboards. Just about any configuration of fans and radiators you can think of are covered in the Dark Base Pro 900. You can get not one, but two 420mm radiators in there - one at the top and one in front.

CORSAIR HS50 Stereo Gaming Headset Review
After connecting the HS50 Stereo to the ST100 CORSAIR headset stand, we went on testing and checked out some TV shows, movies and also plenty of YouTube clips; the sound rendered by the headset was clear, with no over-the-top bass and the quality did remain steady even at higher volumes. Thanks to the 50mm drivers, the low frequencies do sound great in action games such as Wolfenstein, Quake Champions and we were able to conduct really lengthy conferences via Skype, where the person on the other side was able to hear us loud and clear. The included memory foam for both headband and earcups and low weight do also add to the overall headset comfort during lengthy gaming sessions.

D-Link COVR-3902 AC3900 Wi-Fi System Review
D-Link has lately become known for their high end routers that look like they could be from another world, but they have also been making solid entry level performers and everything in between. Surprisingly one thing they haven't done up to now was a mesh network. Today we take a look at the COVR-3902 AC3900 Wi-Fi system. This unit consists of an AC2600 router and an AC1300 Wi-Fi range extender that promises a combined 6000 square feet of coverage.

DREVO X1 Pro 128GB SSD Review
Today I am taking a look at the DREVO X1 Pro 128GB SSD. So far we have looked at the DREVO X1 120GB and DREVO X1 240GB SSDs and were overall happy with them. DREVO is somewhat of a new company still, and their product catalog is growing but not very large as of yet. What they do have is a line up of really nice budget friendly products aimed squarely at the gaming market, that performs really well.
The DREVO X1 PRO 128GB SSD is boasting R/W Speeds of up to 560MB/s Read and 500MB/s Write. If these speeds are obtainable, which we will check out a bit further on, this will make the X1 Pro 128GB a well rounded SSD. Having the capability to reach these kinds of speeds in a SSD is essential to compete in today’s Storage Market and DREVOs price point right where it should be. As with most SSD ranges, Drevo has included a few different sizes which can also have an impact on the overall read and write speeds. Generally speaking, the less space the SSD has to offer, the less performance it will offer as well.
Touching on the box and packaging there are no extra added frills or differences at all between the other two drives we already reviewed from the X1 lineup. Well packaged in a box not much bigger than the SSD itself that’s labelled with the DREVO logo and their signature lightning bolt going through it.

EZVIZ Mini Trooper Wi-Fi Security Camera System Review
The wire free design of the EZVIZ Mini Trooper Wi-Fi security camera system is incredibly useful in certain situations. I can see these being very attractive for renters who can't run hardwired cameras or someone who is just looking for a heads up that someone is poking around their stuff and wants an easy solution. You really can't get much easier. But this ease does come with some drawbacks. Really everything is centered around one potential issues: the batteries.

LaCie 2Big Dock Thunderbolt 3 20TB External HDD Review
When it comes to external storage, USB-C is probably the best thing to come along since Thunderbolt. With the additional throughput that this new connectivity provides, it has allowed vendors to introduce additional functionality to their storage solutions. LaCie was one of the first to take advantage of this when they redesigned the 2Big Thunderbolt 3 to include a media dock. With the latest revision of the 2Big from LaCie, the Neil Poulton design has undergone some changes. On the outside, the design has been flipped on its side and shortened with one bank removed to accommodate the media hub that has now been placed at the bottom. Features include a two-drive RAID enclosure capable of 0, 1 or JBOD with capacity options reaching up to 20TB. A USB 3.0 port is made available on the front of the unit along with SD and Compact Flash slots. Daisy chain functionality is made available via the Thunderbolt 3 connection while power delivery too is a feature of this unit with 27 watts available over USB-C and 15 watts on Thunderbolt 3. The MSRP of the 20TB LaCie 2Big Dock comes in at $1299.99 with a five-year warranty.

Maxsun GeForce GTX 1050 2G Graphics Card Review
MAXSUN, as a sub-brand of Guangzhou Commerce Information Technology Co., Ltd., founded in 2002 and has more than 10 years of brand history. With a brand philosophy of “focus on quality, focus on excellence”, MAXSUN has always been committed to providing users with excellent product solutions. Maxsun product line covers graphics cards, motherboards and SSD that includes JetStream series, Terminator series, Optimus Prime series, Transformers series, Power Hammer series etc. Maxsun is based in mainland China.
Today, I will be reviewing the entry-level budget gaming graphics card from the Maxsun i.e GTX 1050 2G. While this card is perfect for small form factor builds, it does not limit its use in any other form factor build. Don’t be drawn away from its compact size and smaller PCB for it does pack quite a punch for the gamers playing at 1080p and lower. It has a proper cooling solution in the form of the regular heatsink, heatpipes and an 85mm fan offering optimal cooling performance yet with silent operations. It draws just 75W of power and does not need any power connector for that.
This card has 640 Cuda Cores with 128-bit memory bus. It packs 2GB of GDDR5 video memory clocked at 7GHz. The base clock is 1354MHz with the boost clock of the 1455MHz. It follows the PCIe 3.0 standard. It has an HDMI 2.0b, a DP 1.4 and DL-DVI connectors. It is a dual slot design but still a compact size card. It has a support for 4.5 OpenGL and DX of 12 API feature level of 12_1. The card’s dimensions are just 193mm x 110mm x 33 mm if this tells you the tale of how compact it is.
