How to secure your home like a pro: 20-plus expert tips and strategies for DIYers

Feeling secure in your home is important, whether you're a homeowner or a renter. That's why security plays a central role in all the best connected-home systems. The easy way to secure your property is to call a professional service provider: ADT or Vivint, for instance, or a custom installer like Control4 if you want something fancier. Those firms will send someone out to look at your residence, assess your needs, and make equipment recommendations. Alternatively, you can do it yourself by acquiring the hardware from a DIY-friendly provider such as Frontpoint or Simplisafe. Those companies will provide some relatively generic advice, but they don't have agents in the field who can customize a package for your specific needs--that's why they cost less.

Review: Kingston's HyperX Predator PCIe SSD offers fast M.2 performance

All PCIe SSDs, no matter what the flavor, are expensive. Case in point: the M.2/AHCI/PCIe 2.0 Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe SSD, which has a towering MSRP of $764 for the 480GB version. Then I saw the $499 street price and the performance numbers. I can live with the price for 1.2GBps, though of course, I'd much rather cohabit with $300.
