We were first introduced to the brand new Max (M1) sub-branding during December of 2017, and within half a year, ASUS is introducing a brand new smartphone in that series. This is the all-new ASUS ZenFone Max Pro (M1). With the specs that it has, it seems like a price that's too good to be true. And yet it's here. Available for purchase today. Right here, right now.
We've been teased by Cooler Master for quite some time. Since Computex 2017, they showed off an interesting piece of hardware - a low-profile CPU cooler that looks like a mushroom. Some call it a UFO. Now, we have the final product in our hands - it's called the Cooler Master MasterAir G100M. A lengthy name for a tiny product such as this one, but it sure does pack a strong and dense punch.
Razer is a gaming brand, we all know that. It's even in their slogan - for gamers, by gamers. However, gamers need to work too. Hence, the Razer Atheris is born. It's an in-between mouse that suits both game and work together at the same time. It's a compact wireless mouse that is meant to be portable yet functional.
Pioneer has been up expanding to other fields of tech. With their announcement earlier this year, we're seeing more than just car audio products from them.

For the past few years, SSDs have been popping out in the market left and right. With more competitors in the market, manufacturers have to offer something special to stand out. Patriot, a brand that's focused on memory products, released the new Patriot Burst 2.5-inch SATA III SSD. Surprisingly, in terms of design, it looks quite similar to the Patriot Blast that we reviewed some time ago.
NVMe SSDs have been getting more and more mainstream since last year - and Plextor is pushing these SSD to the market too.
