Tt eSPORTS Challenger Ultimate Gaming Keyboard Review


[rating:5/5] Thermaltake, well known manufacturers of cooling solutions for your PC (and some cool cases as well), started putting out a like of extreme gaming equipment in 2010.  They had sponsored different professional gamers for years before that, and it was the knowledge they got from those gamers that helped...

Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine Review


[rating:4/5] There’s a large chunk of younger gamers that I’m sure will look at a Warhammer 40k game, and wonder why it looks like a hodgepodge of just about every other sci-fi game out there.  They don’t realize that Warhammer has been around forever, and has has innumerable influences on...


Homelite 5 Ton Electric Log Splitter Review


[rating:4.5/5] After my review of the Homelite 18 inch chain saw, I was left with a rather large pile of logs – normally that would mean me bringing out the axe to split them for my father in-law’s wood burning stove.  While it’s not something that I mind, it’s a...


Pentax Optio WG-1 with GPS Review: A Camera Built for Life

- - 1 Comment

[rating:4/5] There is no dearth of cameras out there that are “waterproof to xx feet/meters” – hell, I can look in my camera bag right now and see three others.  What the Optio WG-1 offers though is a lot more than that.  Measuring in at 2.3 inches by 4.5 inches...

Cooper’s DIY Beer Review: The Art of Simplicity


[rating:4.5/5] Sure, I lauded on about the marvels of the home brewing kit that I got from I talked at great lengths about how complex it was, all the steps it required, and all the equipment that it came with – Cooper’s of Australia has a different philosophy for...

Seagate 4TB GoFlex Review: Breaking Barriers


[rating:4.5/5] Seagate has been a name synonymous with computer storage since 1979 (they were Shugart Technology in 1978).  Throughout their history, they’ve had a number of “firsts” – they made the first 7200 rpm hard drive, the first hard drive with the Fibre Channel interface, the first 15,000 rpm hard...

GE Power Pro X500 Review

GE Power Pro X500 Review


[rating:4.5/5] I make it a point to let readers know that I am by no means a professional photographer (though with all these camera reviews I’m getting closer), but I do know what I like in a camera as a consumer.  One thing that I’ve always liked are “bridge cameras”...


Homelite 18″ Gas Chain Saw Review


[rating:4.5/5] While the RYOBI 18v 10″ chain saw I previously reviewed and this Homelite 18″ Gas chain saw are both actually made by Homelite, there’s not a lot of similarity past that.  The RYOBI model is just a distant cousin to this monstrous beast of a chain saw.  When I...


The Good Side of…..Evil? (video)


Evil Controllers is one of the premier modded controller manufacturers on the market – and when I say “modded”, well they do pretty much anything.  From housing mods, to their “Evil D-Pad”, to adding rapid fire; nothing is too sacred to mod for Evil.  That’s where they end up catching...


Mantis 9″ Electric Tiller/Cultivator Review


[rating:5/5] The Mantis name has long been synonymous with tillers and cultivators – and while they do make other products (from hedge trimmers to log splitters) it’s easy to see why when people think Mantis, they think tillers.  I know you’re thinking that it’s too late in the year for...
