Oasis Review

Oasis (The Last Humans Book 1) is set in a dystopian world where Sin is something of the past. Humans live in “Paradise”. These settings for books have been popping up everywhere, especially with the popularity of The Hunger Games. But unlike the other books, Oasis is actually captivating. It is set in a world where you are not an adult till you are 40, which forces the youth to be, somewhat innocent.

The first line of the book is just swear words, that’s when I knew Oasis would be, at least, interesting to read. I did find that the book started a little slow, which can be overlooked since it is a Multi Book series and they need to set the stage. But the action does pick up and stays steady throughout the book, throwing in twists and turns, and quite honestly making you confused. The confusion, though, is a storytelling element,

I enjoyed the element of Phoe, pronounced Fee, and how she guides the young boy through the story as a guiding light. She is the source of knowledge.

The book is a compelling read, compelling enough to raise questions about our own society. It doesn’t fall for “dystopian future” tropes and provides an interesting read for all ages.

Review

HAVIT Blue Mechanical Keyboard

It is very important to have a keyboard that is both comfortable to use and delivers a nice tactile feedback while typing, as well as gaming. This is the reason why mechanical keyboards are so popular and used in professional gaming as well as programming circles. Unfortunately, mechanical keyboards come with a premium and don’t always deliver on the Quality standpoint. However, the HAVIT Blue Mechanical Keyboard is a relatively affordable (compared to more well-known brands) and it has spectacular build quality.

The first thing that I noticed while taking out the HAVIT Blue Mechanical Keyboard is the weight. The keyboard is quite heavy, and with further inspection, I found the source of the weight. The keyboard is constructed with what appears to be an aluminum frame! This is the first sign of great build quality, next, I took off one of the keys and lo-and-behold; each key is individually lighted up with an LED. The keys themselves are a textured plastic that feels amazing and produce just the right amount of tactile feedback and travel distance. They are solid and no means spongey. Keystrokes are defined and require deliberate presses.

They board features Blue lights that you have the ability to turn off. It also has some other function keys, such as media and the glorious Windows Key Disable function; for those critical gaming sessions.

Using the Keyboard was an absolute pleasure. I actually look to type more than I would normally in order to hear the satisfying click noises. Gaming is how you would expect, allowing me to press buttons rapidly and without fail. I feel incredibly accurate when using the HAVIT Blue Mechanical Keyboard, as I deliver 90+ WPMs steady, which I was not able to do with similar mechanical keyboards (most notably the Razer BlackWidow).

Let’s get to the bottom of this review. Would I recommend this keyboard? With an astonishing amount of confidence; YES! In fact, I would recommend this keyboard anyway of my old Razer Blackwidow. This Keyboard not only FEELS better, but the quality is exponentially better. Do yourself a favor, get the Havit Mechanical Keyboard.

Turtle Beach 500p Stealth

AngLink 5 Port USB and Qi

 

What sets this charger apart from the rest is that it is Qi compliant. The top of the charger doubles as a wireless charging station as well.

This is perfect for a bedside table charging solution. This allows multiple devices, up to 5, to charge simultaneously. As well as having the ability to charge for any wireless phone that supports it such as my galaxy s6.

How’s the device feel? Well, it definitely is solid. It fits in the palm of your hand and weighs roughly as much as Galaxy Note in a case. Not much at all. It has rubber feet on the bottom to prevent it from sliding around a surface that works fairly well.

I am glad to report that I was able to charge 2 tablets and 2 phones at the same time and each were charged in very respectable times. Just about as fast as a dedicated wall charger. I was very happy with charging my devices up within an hour and a half.

Terra-Master F2-NAS-2

 

The TerraMaster F2 is a fantastic home NAS. This is great for first time NAS buyers as it has easy to configure features. The performance of the NAS is good for home use and home file sharing. This is a perfect addition to a home to have a personal cloud storage, home web server, as well as a media server. It has enough power to efficiently function as a home NAS. Utilizing gigabit internet it can handle multiple connections at the same time.

Even with a, admittingly terrible choice in hard drive, I was able to achieve around 10 MB/s Writes with 20-30 MB/S Read speeds.

The build quality of the NAS is surprising. Made out of aluminum, which helps both cool and weight, it feels premium. Also, it has a built in handle to easily transport the NAS.

Tcloud, the built in software, is easy to use and easy to configure. It allows; bittorrent downloads, file management, user quotas, and much more. Best of all, it is tremendously easy to use.
