I will keep this short as it is all in the video 😀
The Antec 25 eleven hundred is a very amazing computer case aimed at gamer and high end pc users, as I am both I am very pleased with this case and will say it is one of the best I have seen to date.
I more than recommend this case and to see why check out the video below.
Ok to start theres not allot I can say about this mouse apart from it is amazing lol.
It costs around £90 and comes with the glide 7 mouse mat for free, but it is more than worth the price you pay if you are a really big fan of pc gaming.
To start I am a fan of PC gaming but I do prefer to use my wireless Xbox 360 control and I find it more comfortable than the mouse and keyboard, but this very cool mouse has started to change my mind, all I need now is to persuade Madcatz to send me the Cyborg R.A.T 9 and a matching keyboard and I will be fully converted back to keyboard and mouse.
Same as always all the full details are in the video, I will also add that this is my longest video so far as I really loved this mouse.
There was only one minor downside that I mention in the video is the software, the software it self is great and allows you to customize the mouse settings in great detail, but it did take 2 restarts of my laptop to make it recognize the mouse is even connected even though windows 7 picked it up straight away with no problems.
Overall though once the software was all working and i got to playing games with the mouse, I found that I loved it and I recommend this mouse for any one who is a huge fan of gaming and I will say if you are, you wont mind the prety bug price tag.
Please watch the video for more details.
My first product from Antec, they have sent me the EasySwap USM.
Basically the EasySwap is a Hot swap USM adapter, in case you don’t know USM stands for universal storage module, basically meaning if you have a USM compatible drive it will fit on this adapter.
Now I have gone into full detail in the video below, but I will say this device is very simple and easy to use.
Just install in any spare CD drive slot on your computer and secure with the 8 supplied screws (although 4 screws will work fine) , then plug in you SATA data and power cable and you ready to go, simple as that.
All that is left to do is install a hard drive as shown in the video.
In conclusion if you really need to backup your hard drive onto a removable 2.5 inch drive, then I recommend buying this device, price starts at around £16 on the internet and its more than worth the price.
Please see the video below.
It has been a while since my last review, but after Gadget show live professional this year I have made allot of very cool contacts.
Yes its official TechCast is now getting bigger 🙂
But lets get to the point, this is a very cool little device and it looks like a very cool android guy.
It is a very basic device and comes in just two parts, but what it lacks in complexity it makes up for with usability.
I go into full detail in the video but the conclusion is it only costs £5 and is a very great device.
Please check out the video for more details.
Yes it’s true instagram for android is finally here, its been months since they announced the development of instagram for android.
I have to say so far I am loving the app, as a photographer I really appreciate decent photo apps and this one so far really makes up for the wait.
Even thinking about removing my current photo apps it’s that good.
So far I have signed up and uploaded 4 photos, but I plan to upload allot more very soon, you can even see an example below.

The Ear Force P11 integrates premium stereo game sound with crystal-clear communication on the PlayStation Network (PSN) and PC/Mac to create an immersive audio environment for playing popular game titles. The P11 is two headsets in one—a stereo USB headset for chat sound and an amplified stereo headset for game sound. That means you can independently control chat and game sound from a single control box whether you’re playing PS3 or PC games. Large, comfortable ear cups with a lightweight, rugged design provide the ultimate in comfort during extended game play.
Average price: £49.99
Although I can’t say allot bad about this headset, I will try and give a fair good and bad points.
- Large speaker diameter, gives these a great sound quality over other headsets of this price range.
- Large and higher quality microphone makes you voice sound very clear and as the microphone is very flexible, allows you to position it anywhere you like.
- Light weight, meaning if you are not used to gaming with a large headset these are a great and wont distract you while playing.
- They are not wireless like most headsets are these days, this means although they have a long cable they are not really suited for their intended purpose of gaming with a PS3 where you could be sat at a great distance, they are more suited to sitting infront of a computer, although you can buy extensions for both the USB and the audio jack know one should really be expected to do so.
So as you can see overall, apart from the lack of wireless limiting you to how far you can go, I would greatly suggest these to any one needing a great sounding headset for PS3, PC or mac gaming, but you don’t want to spend loads on a more expensive system.
If I was to give these a score out of 10 they would defiantly get 8 due to the great sound quality.
