Acer Predator X27 Review
The Acer Predator X27 is an impressive 4K 144 Hz gaming monitor with DisplayHDR 1000 and, of course, G-Sync HDR. It's a direct competitor to Asus top-of-the-line ROG monitor, but Acer's is better looking and better built for the same monstrous price tag.

ASRock Fatal1ty H370 Performance
ASRock's Fatal1ty-branded motherboards have recently taken a leap forward in design and tech, offering what might be the most complete gamer-centric design for motherboards today. Yet what happens when you apply that to a value-oriented Intel chipset? The ASRock Fatal1ty H370 Performance is exactly that, and we put it through the paces.

Cooler Master CK552 Mechanical Keyboard Review
I was recently perusing Amazon and thinking about buying a USB AC charger, because I was running out of them and thought it would be a good idea to get one with multiple ports. I settled on one which provided fast charging for my phone. I received it a few days later thanks to Amazon's Prime service and started charging my devices. One day, I woke up and looked at my phone. Rather than the typical green light I expected to see, my phone was completely off and unresponsive. I started getting nervous, because I did not want to have to replace this phone so soon. Considering how long it took me to decide on this device, I was afraid I would have to go through the song and dance. Swapping phones is probably one of the most disruptive things I can do, especially since I use it daily and thus get used to a specific one. Even if I get a phone with the same operating system or manufacturer, there are still small differences between devices. On the other hand, swapping keyboards have become almost second nature for me, especially as I have reviewed so many of them. Today we have the CK552, a new keyboard from Cooler Master. I honestly did not have much of an introduction to this keyboard other than the fact it features switches not from Cherry. Is this a keyboard I want to get used to or will there be things that make it hard to like? Let us read on to find out!

DeepCool Gamer Storm DQ850-M Power Supply Review
DeepCool is a brand that most PC enthusiasts will almost certainly have encountered at some point or another. Generally, and I’m not saying this to be unkind, they’re a brand that’s associated with low-cost products. That being said though, we have never failed to be impressed with what we’ve reviewed.

In short, despite not paying a lot, you generally get loads in return!

With this in mind, we review the DeepCool Gamer Storm DQ850-M. This is an 850w, gold efficiency rated, fully modular power supply. So far it’s all sounding good and exactly what anyone would want from a power supply.

Falcon Northwest Tiki Review
The Falcon Northwest Tiki is back and more powerful than ever. The company didn’t hold back with our review sample’s configuration, cramming an overclocked and liquid-cooled Intel Core i7-8086K processor, 32GB of DDR4-3000 memory and an Nvidia Titan Xp graphics card into a small, custom-designed and painted aluminum chassis. Although this particular configuration is high priced, we enjoyed the craftsmanship, intelligent design and performance that Falcon Northwest put into the Tiki.

Kano Computer Kit Touch Review
Some parents bond with their children over sports or music, but if you're like me, you want your kid to build computers with you. Even really young kids can help you tighten the thumbscrews on the back of your chassis, but if you really want them to learn about how computers work, it's best to start with a kid-friendly system like the Kano Computer Kit Touch.

Nearly identical to its non-touch predecessor, the Kano Computer Kit Complete, the new, touch-based computer gives you all the pieces to build a Raspberry-Pi-powered system, complete with a 10-inch display, a wireless keyboard and approximately three hours of battery life. Most importantly, the $279 device uses Kano OS, a kid-friendly version of Linux that comes with a variety of apps which teach you how computers work and how to program them. If you're looking for a way to share your love of computers with a young child while preparing them for STEM success, this device is worth every penny.

Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit Review
It has been months since I first built all of the (at the time) brand new Nintendo Labo Variety Kit. I spent hours putting together a fishing rod, a house, a piano and more, and I came away from it somewhat sad that it was over.

The reality was that the building really was the meat of the game. Make no mistakes, there are games to play once everything has been put together, and the satisfaction that comes from building can’t be understated, but the levels of enjoyment definitely dropped off. My complaint? The lack of a really meaty game to hold my attention. Not to sell the piano short or anything, but most of my fun was had with the fishing rod.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Review
The Tomb Raider series of games has long been recognized as a classic, so when it received a reboot in 2013 with Tomb Raider, many fans and gamers in general were likely skeptical at first, but it proved to be a good game and strong entry in the franchise. It was followed up by Rise of the Tomb Raider and now we have the finale to the reboot trilogy, Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The stakes are high in this one as Lara must fight against Trinity, an organization bent on controlling the world using powers protected by ancient cultures, and now those powers could allow it to remake the world as it wishes. Also, with it being the third game in this new set of stories for introducing and developing Lara Croft into the Tomb Raider, it will likely have a significant impact on the series going forward.

Surface Go as a tablet Review
Is the Surface Go as good a tablet as it is a laptop? Let's review the Surface Go without a Type Cover.

The Surface Go is pretty good, but most reviews have focused on having both the tablet and a type cover for the best experience. The Surface Go is a tablet, however, meaning you can buy one without the Type Cover, but should you? In this short review, I've been using the Surface Go without a Type Cover for a few weeks. Here are my thoughts.
