Correlating to the blue led light this Gives you control of your volume level Adjustment so for example the first Setting adjusts your volume in steps of Two the middle setting adjusts your Volume in steps of four then the third Setting adjusts your audio in steps of 10. i don’t know how useful that Actually is but hey if you need it then It’s got it for you it is a bit pricier Than most media controllers out there as It comes in at 40 bucks but again the Build quality is better than most of Plastic ones you’ll find on amazon and Having those dedicated media keys is a No-brainer if you’re looking for Something like this to add to your setup Number nine for september’s episode is The razer strider mouse pad while not The first thing you think of when you Think of technology this mouse pad sold Like hotcakes and rightfully so now what I really like about the strider is the Surface it’s a hybrid mouse pad so it’s Going to give you sort of different Properties than your standard cloth pad When you take a look at it with the Braiding and stuff and the strider’s Surface you’ll see an even xy axis which Is going to give you a nice smooth glide That provides speed and very low Friction for your mouse you take a look At this macro shot but that even braid Means no matter how you glide your mouse

2020 that is this razer siren mini Microphone It sounds absolutely fantastic superb Quality for being so small and compact This thing has some serious punch to it For the price and i’ll cut to the mic Test now so you could hear how it sounds For this segment so inside they have a 14 millimeter capsule that has a super Cardioid pickup pattern which is really Going to be good for focusing on picking Up your vocals right in front of you it Comes with the included stand and base It can swivel around if you want to sort Of angle it in a certain direction to Where you’re gonna be sitting in front Of it and it’s just super tiny and Simple looking with just the led light On the front so you can know that it’s On but there is no volume adjustment or Headphone pass-through it’s just a tiny Mic here with a 5 8 inch thread so you Can put this on a mic stand or a mic Boom arm you might already have So as you heard this thing just sounds Crazy crazy good whether you’re talking Your friends over discord you’re Frequently on zoom calls for whatever This will seriously be a major upgrade For you if you don’t already have you Know a really good microphone as it is But the thing is with this it only costs 35 dollars which is mind-blowing from The quality of this razer siren mini

Now for number three is going to be a Shared spot of similar products but two Different options that accomplish the Same thing in a way that’s the broad Link rm4 mini from november’s episode Then the sofa baton u1 from march and These guys pretty much let you take all The remotes you have around your house For your rgb light strips your tv cable Box speaker sound bar fans pretty much Anything that needs a remote to use you Can now have all those functions Configured and synced to the sofa baton This is now your all-in-one smart remote In the house admittedly it will take Some time for you to manually set this All up and have it learn all those Devices and functions but once you do You’re now only gonna need this instead Of all your six other remotes on the Coffee table in the episode we showed This off i even have it set up to work With the rgb lights in the upstairs Office where i can just quickly change It on the fly turn them on and off Definitely a cool and useful item with The sofa baton and it’s just under 50. However the more recent pickup with the Broadlink rm4 mini from last month’s Episode it’s pretty much the same thing But instead of having an actual you know Tangible remote you can have a digital Remote now on your phone and it lets you Use your phone to control everything

It’s that same setup you have to Manually teach the device everything you Want your products and devices to do but Now you don’t have to look for a Physical remote anymore it’s all just on Your phone in the app it’s also cheaper At just 30 bucks but both are awesome I’m sure you could definitely take Advantage of either one depending on how You want to use these and now you have That whole extra level of this extra Smart home functionality so again Whether you want to use a physical Remote to control all your smart home Stuff or you just want to use this Little module set it up and then control Everything from your phone you have both Options which is why i showed them both Off for you today at this number three Spot Now coming in at number two for my Keyboard fam out there we have the g Skill crystal crown keycaps in white and Black so if you got an rgb keyboard These will make it shine like no other Keycaps head out there each set in the Box comes with 104 keys for your Standard layout it’ll obviously fit a Full size keyboard 75 and 60 depending On what you own if you’re not too Familiar with keyboards yes odds are It’ll fit your traditional mechanical Switch like cherry gadaron kale or temu You should be fine taking a look at them

There are minor visual differences Between the black and white crystal set For example you’ll see on the black Keycaps you have this shine through Outline strip around the key so you just Have that additional layer now of rgb to Shine through whereas that’s not present On the white set since it wouldn’t Really add much but yes as you can see Regardless of what type of keyboard you Have as long as there’s rgb lights or Leds inside it’s gonna look crazy now And just for a visual comparison side by Side to a pudding keycap you can see the Crystal set it’s completely see-through Instead of being more opaque like on the Pudding caps which now is going to allow For a complete light show underneath and In between the keys even if you’re not An rgb fan you just want to keep your Keyboard a static single color the light Now will just pop even more now that Does mean you’re also going to see part Of the stem from the actual switch Underneath just due to the nature of These keycaps being completely See-through but it’s not a big deal at All i think i just pointed out that it Wasn’t already obvious to you for the Price these come in at 20 bucks which is Definitely pretty good out there if You’re looking to you know take your Keyboard to that next level visually and Just add more life to your desk setup
