God created the world, everything else is made in China. Buying things from China is a lot cheaper and recently the quality is decent too especially considering the price. Value for money is what you will get from most of your purchases from China. Most of you should be familiar with the online retailer Amazon. In China, they have TaoBao. Couple that with all the forwarding services available these days buying from Chinese online retailers has never been easier.
I recently bought a large ticket item, a mobile cart for hanging my 40-inch monitor. I used a forwarding and buying service called SGShop and would like to share some thoughts about my experience. In brief for those wondering how it went: Easy to purchase but item came in horrible shape.
My first foray into VPS hosts started roughly 3 years ago. It had mostly ups and some downs along the way but I am really happy to have been able to find one fantastic company that hosted me for the past 2 years.

A few years back, I have compiled a list of Korean 27” 1440P monitors and wrote a bunch of information about them. It was a well-received article and rightfully so given the whole Korean monitor craze spreading like wildfire. Here I am again compiling some information regarding Korean monitors.

Finally, here are some of my thoughts on using a 40 inch 4K monitor as a computer display and the monitor itself in particular. Continue reading →
The latest video game I have completed is a hidden object game. Never did I expect myself to actually try out a game in such a genre let alone complete one. I must admit that I did enjoy the one I played. The developers of Hero of the Kingdom II (HOTK2) gifted a copy of their game to me and I went into the game not expecting much. I mean what fun can there be finding objects hidden in a picture? I was wrong and I think I know why.
Have limited USB ports in your setup (especially for those using laptops) or simply need a way to extend your USB port so that you don’t always have to reach all the way to plug in your devices?

The Orico A3H10 is a 10 port USB 3.0 powered hub that will give you tons of expandability, convenience and beauty. Read on for my full review of it.
The Accelero Xtreme III is a custom air cooling solution by Arctic for graphics cards. Custom cooling for graphics cards aren’t that uncommon especially for liquid cooling modifications. We have also seen the recent introduction of brackets to allow the installation of your All-In-One liquid coolers for CPUs on GPUs. Such options definitely do help especially for people who want to go liquid but don’t have the knowledge or means to do a full custom one. The Xtreme III isn’t the latest model (version 4 is out already) but it is something that has been in the market for quite some time and is easier (at least for me) to get. Read on for the full review of the Arctic Xtreme III.
