Samsung XP941 Native PCIe M.2 SSD (512GB) Review - 1GB/s Transfer Speeds Set The Bar
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 5:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we have previously mentioned in our review of the Plextor M6M solid state drive, it is important to remember that SSD`s can come in different shapes and sizes. Not all drives are going to be the 2.5 form factor and fit perfectly into your ultra book or desktop. We spoke briefly about the mSATA form factor and that you will find it most often in a laptop, but as laptops and ultra books become slimmer, the demand for smaller, yet faster, drives increases. Bring in the native PCIe M.2 form factor. The PCIe M.2 SSD eliminates the SATA 3 bottleneck, where with SATA 3 you can expect SSD speeds around 500 MB/s, but with PCIe you can expect speeds nearly double this. Incredible isn`t it? Imagine, 1GB/s and you are not even using a RAID 0 configuration; it really is astonishing. The Samsung XP941 PCIe M.2 SSD is one of, if not the fastest drive we have ever seen. Let`s take a closer look!"

In Win tou Review: All-Glass Case Offers Plenty of Flair, for a Price
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 2:05P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

The In Win tou is an $800 enclosure inspired by glass architecture and named after the Chinese word for "transparent". Its tempered glass panels are finished with a special coating that turns the outside into a mirror when your PC is off. However, true to its name, when illuminated from the inside with the computer on, the tou's mirror coating becomes transparent.

Crucial M550 512 GB
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink

Crucial's new M550 SSD is based on an updated version of the Marvell controller, which means it no longer uses overprovisioning: you get to use the whole capacity. In our real-life testing we also see a slight performance improvement, which is great, especially considering the M550's competitive pricing.

Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M Hybrid Gaming Mouse
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 11:32A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gaming mice may be a rather new addition to PC peripherals (always compared to others) but that hasn`t really stopped manufacturers from developing and releasing a huge number of models up until today from basic ones aimed at casual users and up to blazing fast and extremely accurate ones designed primarily for serious gamers and professionals. As mentioned in previous reviews however there aren`t that many feature-rich models currently in the market that also combine blazing fast speeds with wireless connectivity and although i have to admit that i was never into using wireless keyboards and mice (mainly due to signal issues in the past) most people i know do. Tt eSPORTS is also rather new in this industry but in the short period they`ve been around they have released more gaming mice models than any other manufacturer to date and so they naturally possess a great deal of knowledge involving the development of such peripherals (they also know what sells). Today on our test bench we have a gaming peripheral that we never really thought they`d develop and we are talking about no other than their latest achievement the Level 10M Wireless Gaming Mouse. "

Posted by: STAFF
In our 3-way SLI gaming performance scaling articles we`re going to investigate 3-way SLI scaling factors with different CPUs and different clock speeds. In eight recent games and two theoretical benchmarks we want to find out what difference 3-way SLI makes, when we run benchmarks with the CPU at stock clocks as well as overclocked to 4.5 GHz. Let`s kick off with an Intel 4960X CPU and three ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II graphics cards and find out what the differences are going to be like."

Humble Bundle: PC and Android 9 Review
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 9:55A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I found the two beat-the-average games, Kingdom Rush and Knights of Pen and Paper, to be very enjoyable. Kingdom Rush offers a deep and well-designed tower defense experience on both Android and PC. Knights of Pen and Paper is an even deeper game, but not too intimidating, especially if you are familiar with other turn-based RPGs. Either game, on its own, I would recommend beating the average for, so beating the average for both makes perfect sense."

News: TRs April 2014 Peripheral Staff Picks
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 9:12A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we introduced our new System Guide format in February, we cut out peripherals in order to focus more closely on internal PC components. Our plan was to revisit keyboards, mice, displays, and such things in a separate guide, which we would be free to flesh out a little more and update as needed, independently of the already lengthy System Guide. Today, that plan comes to fruition. Welcome to our first Peripheral Staff Picks."

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.
