These days USB truly has become universal. With the ability to connect and charge your phones, tablets, game controllers, speakers, and even power external drives. Before the days of USB there were many different kinds of connectors for all of these devices, Com, parallel, external SCSI, PS/2, etcetera. Due to the rapid expansion of the USB standard – there is an issue in most homes these days, a lack of support for a universal hub where everyone can charge their devices at one centralized location. Vantec is looking to solve this with their 7-Port Dedicated Aluminum USB Smart Charger.
Flash cards are commonly used today in many different devices such as smartphones, digital cameras, video cameras, media players and so on.

Today, we will look at an external card reader from Kingston Technology, the Kingston USB 3.0 High-Speed Media Reader.

Accessorizing your latest PC build is becoming more and more popular these days. Everything from paint to windows to lighting are the norm in the community. RGB LED lighting is starting to take hold over single color lighting though because of its ability to be any color the user chooses on demand. One of the first consumer PC-oriented RGB LED controllers was the NZXT HUE. And while the HUE did a great job it lacked complete customizability. Taking that up a notch is the new Smart WiFi LED controller that our friends over at Performance-PCs.com is offering. Performance-PCs was kind enough to send us a kit with some RGB LED strips to check out so let's get to it!
