Bloody B945 Optical Gaming Keyboard Review
The Bloody B945 is a unique full-size keyboard with a left-sided numpad, which effectively helps with getting the mouse closer to the keyboard for better ergonomics while in use. It features their new LK Libra optical switches with a stabilizer bar for every single switch, dust and spill resistance, and a software driver that crams in a ton of customization options as well!

Corsair Headquarters Tour
California-based Corsair is one of the most well known manufacturers of components and peripherals for the PC enthusiast market. Corsair and Legit Reviews have been working together for over fifteen years, but surprisingly, none of our staff had made a visit to their newer HQ building in Fremont, California that they moved into a couple of years ago. Nathan covered when Corsair moved offices over a decade ago, but Corsair has since moved on to a bigger, better office, this one coming in at a massive 64,000 square feet. Check out Corsair's headquarters!

ECS Z370-Lightsaber Review
ECS is back for the new year with the newest entry into its provocatively named "Lightsaber" line of motherboards; this time with the ECS Z370-Lightsaber. Will ECS deliver an overclocking weapon as effective as the lightsaber is for the Jedi?

Fe Review
Fe is a game about tribes, communication and loneliness. Set amidst an enchanted forest soaked in neon colors and besieged by strange creatures, you play as a young abandoned pup. To begin with, the forest is huge and bewildering, and you must set out to discover its secrets on your own.

MSI B350M Mortar Review
A good candidate for second-generation Ryzen? We find out. AMD's B350 chipset appears to be the go-to solution for the new Vega-infused Ryzen chips we took a look at the other week. What makes most sense in our eyes is a small-form-factor board that doesn't break the bank. MSI is of this thinking and has had a solid line-up since Ryzen's initial launch last year. Bringing renewed focus to the micro-ATX form factor through the release of IGP-enabled CPUs, we take a closer look at the £80 MSI B350M Mortar.

Patriot Viper V570 Blackout RGB Laser Gaming Mouse Review
Today we will be presenting the Viper V570 Blackout from Patriot. This mouse is the successor to original V570 that featured the buttons in a bold red accent. The only difference in the name, is this one carries the term “blackout”. They both carry the same specs.

One of the first things I notice with this mouse is the ceramic feet. This thing literally floats across my mouse pad with little friction. Something to get used to if you are transitioning from the typical Teflon plastic feet. Well lets not delay any longer and get into it and see what we have in the V570 Blackout RGB Gaming Mouse.

Seagate DJI Fly Drive 2TB Review
The Fly Drive is built from the ground up to be a portable solution for those on the go with their DJI drone. That said this solution offers connectivity via USB-C along with a UHS-II microSD reader placed on the side. A single capacity of 2TB is being offered at this point secured in a plastic enclosure similar to the Backup Plus and Game Drive lineups. To take things further, Seagate has placed a protective bumper around this drive to dress it up and add more durability to a drive that is destined to a rough life. Compatibility includes both Windows and macOS but does require you to have an available USB-C port. This product also comes with a two-month membership to Adobe Premiere Pro CC. MSRP of the 2TB Seagate Fly Drive is $149.99 with a one-year warranty.

Seagate launched "The Guardian Series" mid-2016 part of which was bringing back the Barracuda name and rebranding the NAS drive, IronWolf. That same day, we had several models for review including the 10TB Barracuda and 10TB IronWolf.

For larger operations, you can move to the IronWolf Pro, built for up to 16 bay solutions. With each of these solutions built for 24x7 workloads, they come with some impressive technology. For example, dual-plane balancing and RAID optimization along with advanced power management is tech Seagate is calling Agile-Array in addition to Rotational Vibration sensors to monitor and maintain performance in multi-bay environments. For those using these drives in modern NAS appliances from Synology, Asustor and others the addition of IHM or IronWolf Health Management allows the NAS system to more closely monitor your drives health to better protect and predict failures.

Steel Division: Normandy 44 for PC Review
Steel Division: Normandy 44 is a real-time strategy game that introduces a new way to play the genre, but the lightning fast pace of the game is a little too much.

Eugen Systems' real-time strategy (RTS) game Steel Division: Normandy 44 is a great experience that introduces new ideas to the genre, while simultaneously giving the player a sense of the true scale of a World War II battlefield. Mechanically, it plays excellent, but the gameplay is marred by the fact that some things happen faster then you can keep up with.
