When it comes to getting sound out of your PC we have two options speakers, or a headset. Usually to get the most out of your gaming experience you have to turn the volume up and if there are other people in the house they might not appreciate that. That brings us to our other choice the headset. Now, most gaming is done with a headset, they help immerse you into the game making the environment seam more alive. Also with the widespread use of VIOP such as Curse, Ventrillo, and Team Speak, a good working headset is desired by eSport gamers everywhere.

It is a question that is almost as old as the computer hard drive itself. What do I do with this old hard drive? As soon as people started upgrading the storage on their computers, that question has been asked. For quite some time, the options were limited. You could reuse it, sell it, or recycle it. Recently though, a new option has emerged, you can now re-purpose it. This brings us to the Vantec NexStar WiFI. The Vantec NexStar WiFI allows a person to use any new or not so new 2.5 SATA I/II/III to create a portable drive. Vatec has also made sure that there are numerous connection options as well. The enclosure can be connected by USB 3.0 or by WiFi. This alone would seem to be a great option, but they chose to take it a step further, by adding connection options Android OS and Apple iOS devices as well. iOS devices can also use AirPlay to stream content as well. This all sounds very intriguing.
