Razer Kishi Review: The Ultimate Retro Handheld?

The Razer Kishi is a new device, but what it does is nothing new. There have been many different ways to pair a controller with your phone to play games, but so far all have had similar issues. With products like the RG350 and PocketGO shaking up the industry and seemingly a new retro device every other week, is the Kishi the one to get?

PowKiddy Q90 Retro Handheld Review

The PowKiddy Q90 is a sheep in a different sheep’s clothing, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. At first glance you could easily confuse The Q90 with the LDK Game, since they have identical buttons, d-pad, joystick, and shell. Turn it on and you could easily mistake it for the Bittboy PocketGo since it is pin-for-pin compatible with the budget handheld, compatible to the point that the SD cards are interchangeable. That’s not to say there is nothing new here, but is it worth the added cost?

Anbernic RG350M Retro Handheld Review

The Anbernic RG350 is the standard by which all modern gaming handhelds are measured. For it’s solid performance, good compatibility, and large user base, the RG350 is the go-to for most people who retro game on the go. Coming in to 2020, Anbernic released a new edition to the RG350 line, the RG350M. With an asking price hovering at double the original model and the competing PocketGo V2.1, is this the ultimate retro handheld?

I 3D Printed My Own 5.0L Expandable/Stacking Mini-ITX SFF PC Case

Was looking for a case that would make a great NAS system, but wasn’t finding anything SFF. Took what I learned from my open-frame case and made an expandable, stacking case.

Had a few goals in mind:

1) Printable on almost everything. This case is 185x185mm so anything with ~200mm bed will work.
2) Printable with no supports. Have done it with all my other cases so why stop now.
3) Able to hold any number of hard drives.
4) Should hold together without fasteners.
5) Stack the case in any order you want.

This case supports:

Mini-ITX MB
SFX-L PSU
Dual-slot GPU up to ~175mm in length (triple-slot cooler will work with riser pieces)
3.5in HDD
2x 2.5in SSD
4x 70mm Fan (or a single 140mm fan)

Any of these can be printed multiple times if you need more than one. No glue needed, though you may want to if you use multiple spacers.

Bittboy New PocketGo V2.1 Review

In 2019, Bittboy released a successor/upgraded model to their budget retro handheld, the PocketGo. The New PocketGo, also known as the PocketGo V2, added a bigger display, additional buttons, a joystick, and much better internals. Coming in to 2020, Bittboy decided to refresh their new flagship by addressing a few common complaints with the original model while also changing a few other features. What’s the differences between the two models?

I 3D Printed My Own 10.8L Open-Frame SFF ITX PC Case

Had been noodling around with creating an Open Frame case for a while now, but after seeing this case (https://ift.tt/2XVDfmo) I finally decided to make one.

Immediately there were things this case did that I wanted to change:

1. That case was over 400mm tall, much bigger than needed.
2. Wanted to make something printable by most people, so designed to print in an Ender 3.
3. Use no supports.
4. Use SFX PSU instead of ATX.
5. Minimal assembly/parts.

This case prints in 4 pieces taking ~4-6 hours a piece. You’ll need 12 pegs total and it’s recommend your glue the pegs and pieces together. A good strategy is to print one piece at a time along with the pegs for to connect to the next piece. That way you can glue in the pegs while waiting for the next piece to print.

Recommended printing order: MB, Back, PSU, Base.

PSU piece has pass through peg holes that you will probably need to hammer in. Use case screws for MB and GPU, normal screws for PSU.

Supports SFX PSU, Mini-ITX MB, Two-Slot GPU. Should be easy to modify if you want to add a HDD slot or 3-slot GPU.
