Acer Spin 5 Review: An Affordable All Aluminum 2-In-1
Today we are looking at a sub-$800 Acer notebook, but with a twist.

Antec Prizm 120 ARGB 5+C 120mm Case Fan w/Fan Controller Review
Antec has always been well-known for creating outstanding cases and cooling, among an immense variety of other great products. When it comes to cooling, Antec is also a pioneer with regard to the noise/performance ratio. This is important to many enthusiasts out there, which is why the new PRIZM fans are a great example of the design philosophy that Antec stands for.

Featuring a brilliant lighting diffuser on both sides of the fans, a 40,000 hours of rated hydraulic bearing life, 16.8 million colors with looks that could kill; the PRIZM fans are definitely worth more than just a glance. These fans can push a decent amount of air, and look even better doing it as you will see in this review.

Corsair iCue 220T RGB Airflow Review
A compact mid-tower with an '80s vibe. Corsair is adopting a new naming convention for its computer chassis. The series identifiers that we've come to know - Graphite, Carbide, Obsidian, etc. - are being set aside for plain ol' numbers that will be pre-fixed with iCue if the case is deemed to have smart features.

Enter the iCue 220T RGB Airflow, a 'smart' mid-tower solution with lots of RGB lighting, high airflow potential and a £100 price tag.

The mid-tower PC market is extremely competitive. Corsair is by far one of the most competitive in the market. They have an enormous range of award-winning PC cases.

Corsair iCUE 220T RGB Mid-Tower Chassis Review
Corsair is not one that needs a significant introduction in the case market as they have been here for quite some time, and along that time, they have been pumping out quite a lot of case models. Along this journey, we have seen Corsair pump out some cool cases while also sending some across that were less than stellar.

Today we are looking at the new iCUE 220T RGB, which is another entrant into the 'smart cases' category. The smart cases as a category in the industry have been loosely based on having embedded controllers to manage everything from cooling performance to RGB lighting. Today with the 220T, the smart functions are the latter.

Hyperstone U9 Flash Controller Deep Dive Review
There is currently just over 7 billion Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices in the world, according to IoT Analytics. Current projects show that number will leap to a staggering 22 billion by 2025 and become a 1 trillion Dollar market well before then.

Along with the market-growth comes increased capabilities from smarter devices. The industry calls this edge processing, and it's the device sorting through the massive amounts of data before sending the relevant portions to users or the cloud. The processing of live data increases storage demands while manufacturers push for lower-cost and lower-power components to make the magic happen. Hyperstone specializes in reliable flash memory controllers for demanding environments. The company's U9 NAND flash controller is a turnkey product for industrial and robust environments where high endurance is a requirement.
