Western Digital Blue SN550 NVMe SSD 1TB Review (Page 1 of 11)

Whenever I have items to buy on my list, it often is at least a decision that lasts a week if not longer. This does not mean I do not have spontaneous purchases.

SilverStone ARM21 Review

There is a pretty famous quote that says, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas". Turns out this was a slogan created by an advertising agency to promote their tourism and other less-celebrated industries in Sin City.

I paused for a second, as so did my friend, and burst out in laughter at the wrong line.
