The PRIZM Matrix from antec is a pretty unique concept. These days pretty much all cases can accept a multitude of fans with the bare minimum on even a small form factor case being two 120mm fans next to each other. It’s no surprise then that this has become the go-to form factor for all-in-one… Continue reading Review: Antec PRIZM Matrix
Appearance This is quite possibly the most ridiculous looking router I’ve ever seen. I work in the enterprise IT field, so my perception of what a router should look like is often askew with what consumers might think is normal. Even taking into account the current trend of taking high end equipment and making it… Continue reading Review: TP-Link Archer C5400X
A while back I was promised a P101 by Antec, the first review sample I would have received since deciding to blog again. Problem is they never actually sent it, I had a meeting scheduled with their PR guy which was cancelled, and then silence. I’d already commited to the idea of using it for… Continue reading Antec P101 Silent Review
Living in India has its perks. Sure it’s hot, it’s often smelly, the airs polluted and there’s people everywhere. But, there is a huge amount of manufacturing here and prices are often based on what people can afford, not what companies want you to pay.

I took myself off to Nehru Place where I found the excellent Deep Cool Matrexx 55 case… Continue reading Review: Deep Cool Matrexx 55 Case
Lenovo has long been associated with exceptional performance in both the business sector and, to an extent, the gaming sector with it’s Thinkpad and Ideapad lineups. Case and point my main machine for a couple of years was an Ideapad Y500 gaming laptop, with a Core i7 processor and SLI Nvidia 650M graphics cards.
I’ve never bought in to the idea that you need to spend an awful lot of money to get a usable experience with a mouse. Not to say that the uber-expensive offerings from Logitech or Corsair aren’t good products, they just don’t offer the best bang for the buck. My preference has always been to… Continue reading Review: Redragon Gainer M610 Mouse
As much as I love a good mechanical keyboard, my wife (or more specifically, her hearing) does not. There’s no denying that even though a good mechanical keyboard is the ultimate typing experience they can generate an ungodly amount of noise. So, I was despatched to my local IT market with an instruction to buy… Continue reading Review: Corsair K55 Keyboard
I am a huge, huge lover of the Raspberry Pi platform and have used them all over the house for years now, but even I would have to admit that the built in audio capabilities are pretty dire. That’s not really surprising, the Raspberry Pi was designed as an educational tool, it just happens to… Continue reading Review: RaspyPlay4 Board
I recently switched to a Macbook Pro as my daily driver laptop, with one of the compromises made being that it only has USB type C ports on the side. This is incredibly annoying given all I have to carry around; a mouse, USB storage, SD cards, the list goes on. So, I was in… Continue reading Review: Inateck USB C Hub and OTG Adapter
