Razer Naga Expert MMO Gaming Mouse Review

The Naga series of gaming mice from Razer, in my opinion, are some of the best gaming mice out there.  There are a few models in the Naga series, but we’ll be looking at the one simply called the Razer Naga.  Let’s give it a closer look after the jump. Read More →

Skooba Design Checkthrough Security Brief, Standard Review

I am a big fan of laptop/gear bags, and I’m always searching for a bag that not only will protect my equipment from everyday bumps, but also hold everything that I like to carry with me.  I was very happy when Julie was kind enough to assign me the Checkthrough Security Brief by Skooba Design. I currently have been using a backpack-style computer case to carry my laptop and gear with me. Over time it seems my shoulders were always hurting carrying the backpack around with me, especially on company trips.  I would love to try a messenger bag some day and will probably end up purchasing one as soon as I can find one that I like, but I like the design of this laptop bag.

Scotts Snap Lawn Care System Snap Spreader Review

This post brought to you by Scotts®. All opinions are 100% mine.

When Julie asked if I would like to review the Scotts® Snap® Spreader System and Snap-Pac fertilizer, I told her I would be glad to.  I love having a nice yard to show off to everyone. Mowing is one of my favorite things to do around the house, although I don’t like to weed-eat.  Taking care of my lawn and making it look its best makes me feel like I have accomplished something. Conventional spreaders are convenient but can be a hassle. There are lots of steps before you’re ready:  lugging around the large bags, having to cut them open, pour the contents into the spreader, read the instructions on the bag to know what setting to put the spreader on, and finally setting the spreader to the correct settings. After doing all this, you are finally ready to start fertilizing. Enter Scotts newest foray into turning your yard into a beautiful masterpiece.  The Scotts Snap Lawn Care System Snap Spreader takes all the guesswork out of having a beautiful yard.

With Scotts’ newest design, you can just Snap, Lock and Go… Read More →

Digital Innovations Universal Speaker Dock for Android Review

When Julie, The Gadgeteer, asked if I would like to review Digital Innovations’ speaker dock for Android smartphones, I jumped on the chance. I had just been asking myself if there was a speaker dock out there for Android Smartphones. I know there are plenty of them available for iPhones and iPods, but I had never seen any for the Android phones.

When I received the box for the Universal Speaker Dock for Android, I was thinking “WOW, this thing is huge!” After opening the box however, I realized most of it was just the packaging and that the speaker dock was actually fairly small in size. It measures 12.5″ x 4.2″ x 5″, which is conveniently compact. Read More →

StarTech SATDOCK4U3RE 4 Bay USB 3.0 eSATA to SATA Standalone 1:3 Hard Drive Duplicator Dock Review

When it comes to being able to duplicate hard drives efficiently StarTech has been on the cutting edge of that technology.  I was recently given the opportunity to review StarTech’s new 1:3 Standalone SATA/IDE Hard Drive Duplicator Dock.  This dock is perfect for anyone who has the need to duplicate one hard drive onto 3 other hard drives simultaneously.  This dock is perfect if you are needing to make 3 exact copies of one hard drive without the need of a separate computer connection.  I have not had many times when I have needed to make a copy of a hard drive on 3 others, but I can see where this dock can be handy, especially for computer repair or computer retail shops to make exact copies of hard drives for backup purposes or upgrades.

Seagate GoFlex Slim USB 3.0 + USB 2.0 320 GB Ultra Portable Hard Drive Review

Adding more storage capacity to a desktop or laptop computer used to involve having to take the computer apart and adding in the extra drive, not to mention on some computers the pain and frustration of getting to the drive to remove it. Not so anymore with all the external drives coming out on the market that utilize the ever popular USB connection. Just plug the external drive into an available USB port and you have instant disk space that you can take anywhere you need to go. Portable hard drives are a necessary requirement in today’s demanding world. I carry one with me everywhere I go. This allows me to take my personal computer data with me to any computer.

OtterBox Commuter Series Case for the Samsung Fascinate Review


I asked Julie if she had heard of OtterBox, a friend of mine has the Droid X and he has the Defender series case from OtterBox on his phone, and it looks indestructible. When Julie told me she could get me one to review for my phone I was more than happy to do it. OtterBox has been around since 1998 and according to their website motto “We’ve Got Technology Covered”. After perusing their website I was amazed to see all the great cases they have to offer. I was actually given two cases to review the Commuter Case and the Defender Case for the Samsung Fascinate, I will be reviewing the Defender Case a little later. After taking everything out of the OtterBox packaging, I was immediately fascinated, no pun intended, in the quality that is put into each case OtterBox designs. Read More →

Unitek USB 3.0 SATA HDD Dock with One Touch Backup Review

If you are like me you probably have some old hard drives lying around from computers that you no longer have or have worked on for friends and family. I know I have a hard time throwing away any computer item I have even if it is so old it will not work in today’s newer computers. I have two closets full of computer parts from motherboards, video cards, cases, power supplies to you name it and I probably have it. But my biggest collection of computer parts is hard drives.

Sony PSP Game – God of War Ghost of Sparta Review

Oh, Kratos. Why can’t he escape all those memories of his past? Kratos might possibly be the angriest game character I have ever seen; I mean he did accidentally murder his wife and son after all. God of War Ghost of Sparta for the Sony PSP is a third person action adventure game set somewhere between God of War and God of War II. This game starts out with Kratos sitting on his throne which he had just acquired. But why does he look so grumpy? Well, I would probably look the same way if I keep having memories of my past. As I said, the game starts out with Kratos sitting upon his newly acquired throne, while a vision of a person we have never seen before appears. It’s an old woman lying sick on a stone slab. Kratos is convinced he can change the vision he has seen. After all, he is a god. So he sets off for Atlantis on a quest that eventually leads him back to his home of Sparta and then into Thanatos, God of Death’s Realm. Read More →
