Intel NUC Kit NUC5i7RYH Review
     Fri, May 22 2015 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Next Unit of Computing (NUC) was released in 2012 to little fanfare, but Legit Reviews quickly fell in love with the tiny little PC and thought that there was potential in the potent little systems after the first time we used one. Over the past several years Intel has devoted more time and resources to the NUC team and despite increasing sales and millions in profit, the Intel NUC was never blessed with the opportunity to house an Intel Core i7 processor. All that changed with the introduction of the Intel NUC Kit NUC5i7RYH that is powered by the Intel Core i7-5557U processor!

Asus ROG GR8 @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, May 22 2015 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I sometimes feel a little like a broken record when talking about LANRigs. While we have been doing them for years here at LanOC, over the past few years the small form factor builds have really come into their own. The introduction of parts has helped a lot and frankly I think a lot of people are starting to see that you can get amazing performance out of a small PC if it is built right. This makes taking your PC to LANs much easier and even for those of you who don’t do that, they take up a lot less space in your office. Well when Asus recently introduced a new all in one PC called the ROG GR8 I was a little surprised. They were promising a PC that is a fraction of the size of a normal SFF gaming rig but you could get it with an i7 and a dedicated video card. I had to check it out. Over the past few months we have been lucky enough to pack it up and use it at multiple LANs, today I’m going to talk a little about the GR8 and our experience with it. While we are doing that I’m going to try to keep our only GR8 (Great) reference to right here in the introduction.

Today, we’re going to take a hands-on look at the T300 Chi which is offered in two models starting at $699. We have the high-end T300CHI-FH011H model on hand for testing. This model is priced at $899 and features more RAM, a higher-resolution WQHD 2560 x 1440 resolution display, and a faster processor than the other 12.5" T300 Chi model...

Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series has been wildly successful for many years now, offering some of the edgiest story lines, game play tactics and objectives the gaming industry has ever seen. With psychopathic main characters, you are left in the depraved communities of Los Santos and Blaine County, to walk a path few would dare choose in real life, committing nefarious acts, robbing and pillaging to complete your objectives.

Fractal Design Core 2500 Case Review
     Thu, May 21 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Thirdly and probably most importantly is the “Bang for the Buck” aspect of the Fractal Design Line of computer cases. They exceed standards that other companies have almost ignored and throughout this new direction of a better global price equilibrium for a more growing world market, Fractal Design has done just that without sacrificing material quality and superior design and gives what you more than a buyer would expect out of any of the cases that Fractal Design makes. In essence Fractal Design cases are not engineered to brake your pocket or kill a credit card limit but instead to give the buyer a quality and excellence that actually exceeds the monetary value of the case itself. With these factors in mind, I would like to get on with this review of Fractal Designs newest entries into the Econo-Class market, The CORE 2500; and later the Fractal Design CORE 1500 review coming soon."

Philips Brilliance BDM4065UC
     Thu, May 21 2015 | 9:02A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The BDM4065UC is possibly the largest 4K PC display on the market, with a whopping 40-inch diagonal screen size. It’s absolutely huge, resembling the size of many living-room family televisions. It uses a VA LCD panel with a typical W-LED backlight. With standard 8-bit colour, along with a 3ms SmartResponse G2G pixel latency, it’s more for general-purpose use and gaming than for colour-accurate graphic design work.

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.
