8 Facts You Never Knew About Western Digital
     Tue, Apr 21 2015 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote : Western Digital My Passport portable hard disk drives are popular because they are not only fast, they also come with hardware encryption which allows for instantaneous encryption of all data. This is very useful because the encryption capability is built right into the drive and is very easy to use. In addition, the encryption process is performed by the hard disk drive controller, so it has no effect on the system's performance.

Oppo R5 Review
     Tue, Apr 21 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Smartphone manufacturers are obsessed with thinness. Being the 'best at' this or 'most' that gives you bragging rights and that's what Chinese OEM Oppo appears to be after with the R5. At just 4.85mm thick, it's a pretty impressive form factor, though you'll have to compromise with a smaller battery, a pretty standard 1080p display, average camera and a mid-range SoC. Can the R5 still deliver a better experience over a thicker device with, potentially, better hardware?

In-Win 904 Plus Chassis Review
     Mon, Apr 20 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
And the award for ‘Novel ATX PC case 2015 goes to … In-Win for the 904Plus.’ That might seem premature as we have only reached April but the odds of another radical design that will top the 904 Plus are slender to non-existent. In-Win has updated the 904 very slightly to create the Plus which replaces the original version and sells at the same price. You still get an aluminium chassis with flawless front and top panels that are capped off with tempered glass side panels.

ROCCAT Tyon Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Apr 20 2015 | 9:01A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Gaming mice have remained more or less the same for quite a while. Well with the mouse we are taking a look at today we have at least two new features that I’ve never seen on a mouse before. They are a analog thumb paddle and a dorsal fin switch. Will these new features change the way we game? I guess we will have to see. The mouse in question is the ROCCAT Tyon and even without these innovations its pretty impressive featuring 12 programmable buttons, an 8200 DPI Pro Aim (R3) laser sensor, ROCCAT’s EasyShift[+] functionality, RGBA illumination and of course ROCCAT’s impressive driver software. Let’s get to gaming and see what this mouse can do!"

Scythe Mugen Max Heatsink Tested on Frostytech
     Mon, Apr 20 2015 | 12:15A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

The Scythe Mugen Max heatsink weighs 870 grams and stands 166mm tall, it has a footprint of 146x110mm. The heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes which are soldered to a 2mm thick nickel plated copper base plate, rather than being left exposed as with 'heatpipe direct touch' coolers. The heatpipes are swaged into a 113x145x84mm aluminum fin stack which is broken up into four nearly separate cooling towers. For those with case windows, the Scythe Mugen Max is capped by a polished aluminum fan shroud that obscures the heatpipes for a neat, finished appearance.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
