Even More PC Case Gear


- USB Snake Light


The USB snake light has been around for a while now and it seems that still a lot of people out there haven't seen it. It's quite basic in what it is and the one we are looking at here seems to be a generic brand.


USB snake light are designed for notebook computers that don't emit much light from the LCD display like larger desktop CRTs which can make it harder to see the keyboard in the dark. It's defiantly one of the simplest products you will install as all you have to do is plug it into any free USB port and away you go. From there it automatically switches on and you are able to bend the light in any which direction you please. It also can be used on a normal computer if you have USB ports on the back of your monitor or the back of your keyboard. Some people may choose to use it at the rear of the case as they might like a bit of light when they are doing things at the back of the case while their system is on.



Once you shut down your computer the light does turn off. It really does have a long list of uses, it might just be that you don't like to have the light on in your room and would like to simply see your keyboard with ease. At a very cheap US$9, you shouldn't have a problem trying to get value for money out of this product.




PC Case Gear always has some new and funky products available to the Australian market and each month we will be looking at the majority of them. Some products are very simple yet very effective like the USB snake light; other products are slightly more expensive and seem to be more of a novelty item like a Hard Drive caddie with a LCD display on it. While some people will find it useful other people will find themselves purchasing it because it's something different. Overall we have some excellent products and they may be something you're interested in, look forward to next month where we will see another neat little pile of products from James and our friends at PC Case Gear.
