1MORE Quad Driver Review (Page 1 of 4)

Several Fridays ago, our company hired a new group of cleaners. Over the weekend, they came in to do the cleaning. On Monday I came in but noticed something was a bit strange as I noticed a few things on my desk were moved around. It was not until one of our interns came in when he asked, "Where is the iPhone 8?". Since we are a software company, we often use current generation devices for testing purposes. We looked all over the office, but we could not find it. I decided to turn on the Find My Phone feature, but the phone in question was turned off. We later had a meeting and somehow the conversation got around to talking about how sketchy Northeast Calgary was. Most crimes and gang-related activity often happen in that area of the city, so it was an easy target. The intern tried to defend the northeast as he lived there, but it fell on deaf ears. At the end of the meeting, it seemed someone had turned on the missing device. Lo and behold, we tracked it to an address in the northeast. While it may have seemed premature to blame the theft immediately on someone in that area, it goes to show sometimes you cannot really shake a reputation after you have one. So what happens if you do not have a reputation yet? We are in this situation today, as we have a new product from a new company at APH Networks. 1MORE sent us their Quad Driver earphones for us to take a look at. As a reviewer, we look at every product without preconceptions or biases from previous experiences with other products from the same company. So how do these IEMs compare and are they capable of being my daily drivers? Let us read on to find out!

Antec DF500 Review (Page 1 of 4)

Here in Calgary, spring has finally arrived after a grueling winter filled with lots of snow shoveling and bundling up. The arrival of spring brings its own host of new ventures before summer fully kicks in. For myself, it is going through and cleaning a couple of different things. This ranges from getting rid of old clothes, emptying out the bookshelf of some books, cleaning the car, and reorganizing a couple of things in the house. This spring it also includes cleaning out the computer. I have had the same case since February of last year, which was the SilverStone Kublai KL07. The case has served me well, but I have not bothered to properly clean the case in all that time. I was quite surprised after removing the front panel, lots and lots of dust fell out the front. It was not the greatest sight to see. The inside of the case was also filled with the nasty stuff, even with the filter at the front. The graphics card and the back fan had visible streaks of dust. After removing the graphics card and blowing on it, plenty of powdery stuff came out of the heatsink. Needless to say, it was satisfying cleaning everything out. The reason for finally opening up my case is because today we have the Antec DF500 up for review. The Antec DF500 is definitely in a completely other genre of cases than the SilverStone Kublai KL07, focusing more on looks than on silence. Read on to find out all the different features it offers!
