Biostar Hi-Fi Z97WE Motherboard Review @ TechwareLabs
"Biostar, a company which has been releasing motherboards for almost three decades, has just released the new Hi-Fi Z97WE. While Biostar has been around for some time, it isn't usually the first company that comes to mind when searching for a new motherboard. Although this may be the case for most for most PC enthusiasts, the fact remains that it will be hard to find a motherboard loaded with the same new features as the Hi-Fi Z97WE for a better price. Biostar is known for having some of the most affordable boards on the market and the Hi-Fi Z97WE is no exception. You can find Biostar's Hi-Fi Z97WE on Newegg for $114.99, which is an outstanding price for a Haswell board."
Corsair Gaming M65 RGB Gaming Mouse Review @ Legit Reviews
"The Corsair Gaming M65 RGB gaming mouse is hardly the first computer mouse with multicolor lighting. It's nowhere near the oddity of the K70 RGB keyboard, the first keyboard with individual customizable per-key backlighting. The M65 RGB is the very least complements the Corsair RGB keyboards – both are unified under the same control software allowing a sharing of macros and cross mode switching, they both have multicolor lights, and they both incorporate aluminum into their construction."

MSI B85M ECO Motherboard @ PureOverclock
"Often we have to look at the indirect cost of PC ownership, specifically energy costs. One PC component that can easily escape notice in this respect is the motherboard. But the MSI B85M ECO is aimed at trimming power usage down to a minimum level without costing performance as a tradeoff; an interesting idea, to be sure with electricity prices the way they are. Let’s take a close look at what the MSI B85M ECO is bringing to the table.”
Plextor M6e 256GB SSD Review - speedy PCIe on the cheap @ PC Perspective
"The Plextor M6e is an impressive little PCIe SSD that is available in half height PCIe as well as an even smaller M.2 2280 form factor. It's Marvell controller and Toshiba flash perform comparably to the random IO performance of modern SATA units, but with a bit of added headroom provided by the PCIe 2.0 x2 interface. While it can't compete with the raw sequential throughput of competing PCIe SSD RAID solutions, it does outmaneuver them at lower queue depths, doing so with significantly lower latency per IO. The M6e is also far cheaper than those same competing units, but we feel the price is still a bit high given this particular model's specs and performance."
