After visiting CES in Las Vegas, we made it a priority to find the best products that were being unveiled to the market for this year. We went to CES 2014 not expecting too much other than 4K on an affordable level and more consumer level products that are aimed at home and lifestyle and for the most part, this is exactly what we saw.
For us however, components are more important to us and this is what we want to focus our awards on, so after visiting many various companies and a whole load of exciting booths and suites, we have got together to discuss the very best components that were shown at CES. This can range anything from chassis to power supplies to full systems. We also recognise SSD’s, memory, portable chargers, mobile devices and much more and with this in mind, here are our best picks and lucky winners of the Best of CES 2014 award:
Luxa2 P-Mega 41600mAh Power Bank
We’ve seen the LUXA2 P-MEGA before at Computex 2013 in prototype form, but now that it is coming to retail, we managed to see the final product and with such a unique idea and extreme power, it certainly impressed us from the start. You can see more in our CES coverage article here.
Thermaltake Urban T81 Chassis
We checked out the Urban T81 chassis from Thermaltake and was extremely impressed by some of its features including the double side door and the ability to mount hard drives and SSDs on the side. You can see more in our CES coverage article here.
Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M Hybrid Wireless Mouse
The Level 10 brand has always demanded a premium stance in the market, and for a very good reason with its unique styling and plentiful feature set. Working on the success of the Level 10 M mouse, Tt eSPORTS have taken it one step further by adding wireless functionality. You can see more in our CES coverage article here.
CyberPowerPC Steam Machine
A big thing at CES was the unveiling of Steam Machines from a variety of brands, but CyberPowerPC’s version really impressed us with the styling, design and the ability to add a GTX Titan into the mix. The other highlight is the starting price of $499 USD which was very enticing. You can see more in our CES coverage article here.
CyberPowerPC Fang BattleBox
Another item that CyberPower were keen to show off was their Fang BattleBox. This caught our eye due to its unique styling and the idea behind it, in terms of being transported easily making it a fantastic choice for LAN events and social gaming. You can see more in our CES coverage here.
With our first ever Best of CES award, we’re keen to carry on this tradition with future events so keep your eyes peeled in June when Computex 2014 is the hot topic and we take a look at what’s on offer in Taiwan.
