Gigabyte RTX 2060 SUPER Gaming OC and Windforce OC Review
With the recent Nvidia SUPER launch, it also means all new aftermarket cards. I had the chance to check out MSI’s highest-end RTX 2060 SUPER. Well, I also had two different cards come in from Gigabyte. The Gigabyte RTX 2060 SUPER Windforce OC which has an overclock over the Founders Edition model but sells for that same base price point and a Gigabyte RTX 2060 SUPER Gaming OC. The Gaming OC isn’t Gigabytes highest-end card, but it has the upgraded triple-fan cooling and a huge overclock which was well over all of the competition so I’m curious to see how they both perform and how they compare. Is the Gaming OC fast enough to justify a little more money and is the Windforce OC a better choice than the Founders Edition at the same price. Today we are going to find out!

Kingston KC2000 SSD Review
The Kingston KC2000 is a new high-end consumer M.2 NVMe SSD. Kingston had been neglecting this market segment for a while, but the two year old KC1000 has finally been replaced by a proper successor using the latest flash memory and controllers..The companys latest flagship consumer SSD is a better contender than theyve had in a long time, but despite its use of the latest 96-layer 3D NAND it comes up short when compared to more reasonably priced drives that are still using 64-layer NAND.

Razer BlackWidow (2019) Gaming Keyboard Review
The Razer BlackWidow is definitely a keyboard you’ve most likely have heard of as Razer first introduced it in 2010. For the 2019 version of the BlackWidow Razer is going for a more affordable route. This full-size keyboard still has Razer’s mechanical key switches, RGB lighting, and that iconic Razer keyboard shape, but missing is a metal chassis, any extra USB ports, and a volume knob. By keeping many of the great features gamers know the BlackWidow for, but taking others out they were able to bring the price of the keyboard down to only $119.99, which is quite low for a full-size RGB mechanical keyboard from Razer.

Synology DiskStation DS1019+ 5-bay NAS Review
Powered by an Intel Celeron J3455 processor clocked at 1.5GHz (boost up to 2.3GHz) the DiskStation DS1019+ comes in a single 8GB memory option. The memory comes in the shape of a pair of 4GB DDR3L 1866 SO-DIMM in the two SO-DIMM slots. If you feel like you need more memory at a later date, then you are out of luck as, according to the spec sheet, 8GB is the maximum amount of memory supported.

It has an AES-NI hardware encryption engine and a hardware-accelerated transcoding engine which supports H.264 (AVC), H.265 (HEVC), MPEG-2 and VC-1 formats at a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 (4K) at 30fps.

On top of that, its performance is great, and it comes with lots of cables and connectors for a potent gaming system. The only downsides are its increased noise output under harsh operating conditions and limited availability in the US

WD Blue SN500 M.2 NVMe SSD Review
7/22/19 Update: We've updated this article with new testing for the 500GB WD Blue SN500, as well as tweaked parts of the review to reflect current pricing.

WD’s latest NVMe SSD aims to complete the company's portfolio, but it also feels like the beginning of the end for SATA SSDs. Recently, WD dropped its all-new WD Blue SN500 to complement its WD Black SN750. Unlike the WD Black, which is designed for those looking for one of the best SSDs on the market, the Blue SN500 targets resellers, system builders, or just any consumer on a budget.
