APH Networks: Creative Live! Mic M3 Review

At the end of July, I went to see the musical Hamilton with my girlfriend, as the traveling show was in Calgary for a couple of weeks. Personally, I am not a huge theater person, but I am starting to enjoy the charm and appeal of it as I grow up. In my mind, there are a lot of parts to a musical that really make it great. This starts with the music and singing, followed by the choreography, which all spins into the telling of a story. I also really like seeing the different sets that look really nice and add to the whole narrative. The one thing I noticed while watching Hamilton was how they were able to move so many things around, including set pieces, furniture, and people, without the audience noticing. In comparison to the first Broadway I watched, The Phantom of the Opera, this was a bit less amazing, but this is also not that fair of a comparison. From what I understand, the Phantom of the Opera is one of the longest running musicals in New York and does not need to travel across different theaters. As such, the Phantom's set can be a lot more impressive and immersive since it stays in a theater. Even so, I enjoyed both shows and I left each quite pleased. In a similar vein, today we have a new microphone in the form of the Creative Live! Mic M3. I have reviewed a fair share of microphones in differing price regions, so I think the comparisons between this and others will be a bit more apples-to-apples than my musicals comparison. How does the Mic M3 compare, and will it impress me like the set movement of Hamilton? Let us read on to find out!

NikKTech: Kolink Continuum V2 1050W Power Supply Unit Review

Kolink may not be one of the well-established power supply unit manufacturer but their Continuum V2 1050W model actually does very well, not just in terms of rail stability and noise levels but also electrical efficiency.

Mad Shrimps: Silicon Power UD90 M.2 2280 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD Review

The Phison E21 controller paired with Microns 176-layer TLC NAND does result in a good mainstream drive in terms of performance, even surpassing Silicon Power rated speeds, which operates at decent temperatures in normal operation.
