When The Campfire Is Burning Bright.... Hercules WAE BTP04 Really Shines!

"Sometimes you just need to rock. Sure, the peaceful sounds of nature can create a wonderful melody, but when the campfire is burning bright, I don’t mind an electric guitar riff or two. So how are you going to pump up your jams? We all know someone who’s run their car battery dead after a healthy tailgate session (I’ve been that guy, and it sucks), and no one wants to lug around a 1980s ghetto blaster on their shoulder. The real solution to your audio dilemma: a tough as nails speaker that won’t run out of juice until long after you and your crew have burned down the last coals. Enter the Hercules WAE BTP04 Outdoor Speaker, a powerful little unit guaranteed to rock your socks."

Hercules DJControlWave Dual Deck Controller Something To Admire Says Unique

"If you have seen what Pioneer has done in the field of controllers these days, the new Hercules DJ Control Wave is something to admire. It looks like something that would be produced only from the top end guys – and this controller has room to let you slide your laptop facing a nice angle. I get the impression that Hercules is not something to forget"

NationalOutdoors Goes Fishing In Alaska With Hercules WAE BTP04 Outdoor Adventure Speaker Kit

"The ends of the speaker are composed of a tough rubber material for grip on inclined surfaces. This material also provides impact resistance. Of course, I dropped the speaker a few times onto the rocky beach and had no issues. I kept my iPod in my pocket while playing music through the speaker because it was misty and I didn't want my iPod getting wet. The speaker was fine in these conditions."

ThinkComputers Gives Noctua NH-U9B SE2 Perfect Score

"We know Noctua for some of the best air coolers out there, but normally their coolers are quite large and are made for full-size PC builds. It is much harder to shrink down an air cooler and still have the same type of performance. Well it looks like Noctua was able to do that with the NH-U9B SE2 cooler. This makes it perfect for a small form factor gaming machine where you still want that great performance and might even be overclocking your processor. Now on the other hand if you wanted this cooler for say a HTPC setup it does come with both a low noise adapter and ultra low noise adapter which will slow the fan speed down making the cooler much more quiet."

Tt Poseidon Z Keyboard Satisfies TechnologyX

"The Poseidon Illuminated Keyboard has everything you’d want from a mechanical keyboard. It’s sleek, sturdy, and feels great to use. Every key bounces back and instills a long forgotten sense of flow and momentum as you type. It’s great for both gamers and typists alike, the nature of mechanical keyboards making it hard for your fingers to get tired."

LanOC On SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Mouse

"I have a whole stack of wired Sensei’s and I have been extremely happy with their comfort and performance over the years. I was worried that there wasn’t room to improve and that a new model might bring its own downsides. Thankfully, I was wrong. The Sensei Wireless is a great mouse. Paired up with the H Wireless I am basically wire free."

Bitfenix Phenom ITX Chassis Recommended By Ocaholic

"Bitfenix rolled out a very good product. The Phenom is a small PC case that can fit high-end systems without any problems. We recommend this particular product if you are looking to make a smaller system, but you do not want to settle on lower performance."

HardwareHeaven Loving Bitfenix Colossus MATX SFF Chassis

"Starting with the build quality of the Colossus Micro-ATX we have a case which is very much in the high end of the spectrum. The main body of the case is very sturdy, the paintwork flawless on our sample and we love the soft touch coating... as we did with the original Colossus. Design wise there is a lot to like about the case too. For example there is plenty of flexibility in terms of the coolers and GPUs which can be installed... including multiple high end cards if we wish. The case easily takes liquid coolers too and there are plenty of drive locations for those who need a bunch of storage."

Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Surfaces At Modders Inc

"In a market that is flooded with keyboards, it’s often times hard to weed out the ones that are built to withstand the test of time. If you’re using a Poseidon Z you should be at ease knowing that for the next 5 years you’ll have full coverage should any of your keys die on you."

Tunes With Floris From FunkyKit & The SteelSeries 9H Headset

"I really enjoyed listening to music with the 9H, mostly I use PC but becuase I went on a holiday I used my iPod.It just so comfortable to wear I can wear it all day and then the music quality is just great as well. The bass in the songs wasn't to much but it wasn't lacking either. The vocals where in my eyes crisp-clear and I had no problems with noise or interference when listening to songs."

SilverStone Milo ML06 Chassis On Phoronix

"The SilverStone ML06 is a very fine addition to the Milo case line-up. The ML06 is the smallest yet, is designed well and is very versatile with the choice of hardware options, is extremely suitable for a HTPC system and a range of other scenarios, and its cost is just $60 USD. Overall, for those looking for a nicely priced mini-ITX chassis, the SilverStone Milo ML06 is worthy of a hard look."

Thermaltake Water 3.0 Pro AIO LCS on NikkTech

"it's quite clear that the Water 3.0 Pro can go head to head with the latest Antec H2O 950 Liquid CPU Cooler but thanks to its newly designed fans it does so with quite lower noise levels. On top of that add the fact that both fans can be changed for others of your choosing (unlike the H2O 950) and the Water 3.0 Pro is a very good alternative for people who can't afford or don't have the space to use an 240mm AIO Liquid CPU Cooler."

Ozone Onda Pro Headset Superb Reports eTeknix

"The Onda Pro X-Surround has a lot going for it, the sound quality is superb and crystal clear at any volume, but its real winning point is the microphone. Microphones are often unremarkable, very similar specification bits of hardware on low to mid budget gaming headsets, but the Onda’s stood out as being a clearer than most, with some really good noise cancellation which is perfect if you’re planning on using team chat in a busy environment such as a LAN event. It’s also incredibly comfortable to wear over long periods of time, something that will no doubt reap its own rewards after a long gaming session. Build quality is top-notch and the finish of the plastics looks stunning, so there is no doubt that you’ll wear it with pride."

eTeknix Impressed With SilverStone EB01-E DAC

"The EB01-E is competitive too, DAC prices vary wildly based on spec and brand-name, but again I can’t find anything as nice looking as the Silverstone or that has better specifications for around the same money."

Noctua NH-D15 Delivers Knockout Blow Says TweakTown

"Noctua sort of comes out of nowhere after almost five years, and delivers such a knockout blow that is hard not to gasp when you see it coming. Building from what was the world's first of its kind, surpassing all of the mimics on the market, and doing it with much needed improvements in clearance and performance, is yet another reason why we always recommend Noctua coolers. It's also why most of the staff here currently have them or have had them in the past. They are just that good, and the NH-D15 proves that Noctua is still on top of the game"

Thermaltake Poseidon Z Keyboard On TweakTown

"It may not have all the bells and whistles that we have seen in other mechanical keyboards, but not everyone is looking for all of that to begin with. Sometimes finding a keyboard with some basic additional functionality is all you need, and with the flood of everyone shoving profiles, macros, software, and even a bunch of extra goodies that you have to find room for and will inevitably loose anyway, is nice to get back to what is truly necessary to game and write on."

LanOC Reports SilverStone RVZ01 SFF Chassis Impressive

"Fitting the GTX 780 into the RVZ01 is impressive, but what I loved about the case the most was how well it handled the heat from everything. The semi-chambered design does a better job of keeping things cool than my lunchbox builds"

Bitfenix Ronin Chassis Finds A Home At Bjord3D

"The Bitfenix Ronin-case is a really nice case that might seem a bit bland and “boring” at first but which performs very well. A lot of users do not want or need a flashy case and in those cases the sleek and sober look of the Ronin will be perfect. There is plenty of space in the case for drives as well as good cooling including two silent 120 mm fans."

Steelseries Rival Mouse A Pleasant Surprise Say Ocaholic

SilverStone EB01-E DAC On Benchmark Reviews

"The Silverstone EB01–E has all the features that would be expected of an external audio DAC, and includes a few bonus extras. The ability to switch between digital audio sources directly on the unit, and the inclusion of a headphone adapter add to the overall value of the EB01–E package... The intelligent choice of high quality audio ICs in the EB01-E design is clearly highlighted in the documentation, and these design choices result in exceptionally good output audio performance."

Noctua NH-D15 Cooler Dominates At Frosty Tech

"Exactly how does the Noctua NH-D15 stack up? On all three of Frostytech's synthetic thermal test platforms the Noctua NH-D15 heatsink offers the best, quietest cooling performance of the tower-class heatsinks we've thus tested. In other words, that means several all-in-one liquid cooler models do perform cooler than the NH-D15, but they're also much louder. The only two tower coolers which have a slight edge are also much louder."

Max Page - Frosty-Tech.

SilverStone Tundra TD03 AIO LCS On eTeknix

"I am really surprised by the Tundra, I was expecting it to be high quality and high performance, much like every other Silverstone product I’ve seen roll through the eTeknix office, or from my own personal experiences with the brand, but I wasn’t expecting it to be as great as this. Sure it’s not perfect, but it really does shake up this sector of the market by doing things a little differently to the competition."
