Mukii TransImp USB 3.0 HDD Dock TIP-D180U3 Review

There are many ways to access a hard drive. The most common way is through the internal SATA connectors. The other common way is through USB/eSATA. The former requires you to install the bare drive into your computer and the latter requires you to have an enclosure that supports such a transfer. Another method, that partially combines both mentioned connections, is through a hard drive dock. A hard drive dock allows you to use bare drives and simply connect them through whatever means available. Today we will be reviewing the Mukii TransImp TIP-D180U3, a USB 3.0 HDD Dock. Read on for the video and written review.

iOS Fluid Football Review

Fluid Football (a.k.a Fluid Soccer in the US app store) is a tactical football game where it places you in preset match situations with the main objective is to score a goal. It is your task to come up with a plan and play to score. Each level provides different kinds of challenges and the way you score lies ultimately in your own strategy and tactic.

Cheap eBay Wireless Antenna Upgrade

Being restricted to solely using wireless for my internet connection, I’ve been spending much time finding ways to improve my wireless connection and speed. I’ve tried many configurations, placing routers here and there and wherever I had cables running to. After a few days of testing, I’ve gotten the most optimum position for the placement of my wireless router and configuration. Not wanting to spend too much money, I decided against upgrading my wireless router but instead searched for other cheaper improvements that I can try out. I’ve then decided to change the wireless antennas of my wireless PCI adapter. Continue reading

Audio Recording Upgrade: Blue Yeti Microphone

I’ve been making videos for quite some time already. For all my audio recordings so far, I’ve been relying on the microphone on either the video camera or on my headset. Neither of them are good solutions for recording but I had to make do with what I have. Having endured the poor audio recording quality for months, I’ve decided to spend some money to buy a better microphone. With careful considerations and in-depth research, I’ve narrowed down my options to 2 USB microphones. They are the Audio-Technica AT2020 and the Blue Yeti microphones.

New Star Soccer 5 Review

New Star Soccer (NSS), a series that left me with much fond memories. I remembered reviewing the previous game a few years ago; NSS 4 was brilliant and so was NSS 3. NSS is a soccer/football simulation game where you play the life of a footballer. Whether you become a legend later solely depends on your skills and the way you manage your career and life. Back then the game offered something different from your bigger developers such as EA Sports and Konami with their FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) franchises respectively. Both of those games didn’t have a player simulation mode then. However in their recent few releases, Be a Pro (BAP) and Become A Legend (BAL) are modes that are well polished and provide much fun. With that said, how does NSS 5 fair against the big guns? Continue reading

Hauppauge Colossus Review

Hauppauge Colossus is an internal PCI Express HD-PVR. In simpler terms, it is an internal card that is fixed within your computer that records high-definition footage from a video source. As such, the name HD-PVR stands for, High Definition Personal Video Recorder. I am mainly using the Colossus to record gameplay footage from my PS3 as well as my PC. This review will thus revolve around mainly my experience in using the Colossus for gameplay recording rather than other types of recording such as TV footage and others. If you’re in the market looking for a new capture card, read on for my review and some test footages of the Colossus. Continue reading
