Creative iRoar Go Bluetooth Portable Speaker Review
     Fri, Dec 02 2016 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The iRoar Go Bluetooth Speaker is another impressive release from Creative which was built upon the already successful design of its older brothers, but features a smaller footprint, while keeping the active drivers at the same diameter. We can play back music on it via Bluetooth, have it connected to our PC for listening to music and conferencing thanks to the integrated microphone, connect an external sound source via Aux In, use an USB Flash Drive with audio in order to play it back easily but it is also supplied with a microSD card slot as another resource from where we can listen to music. Additionally, we can use the internal battery to charge our mobile devices on USB (up to 1A output), install a 3rd party microphone in order to enhance the recording quality and also work with the audio profiles thanks to the Creative Sound Blaster Connect desktop and mobile applications. As Creative does mention, the newly-released iRoar Go is not afraid of water and is splash-resistant with an IPX6 rating."

The Best Tablets
     Fri, Dec 02 2016 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Exploding tablet sales are no more. The latest figures show us that slates and detachables' sales have fallen eight quarters in a row. This could be explained by a number of factors, among them that smartphones are now larger and faster, while laptops are thinner and lighter than they used to, so the scope of tablets has been narrowed down significantly.

Fnatic Gear Rush G1 Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Fri, Dec 02 2016 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The world of eSports has grown tremendously over the last few years so much so that high-profile teams don't need sponsors for peripherals anymore- instead they can design their own. Today, we are looking at Team Fnatic's own keyboard, released under the 'Fnatic Gear' brand. How does it stack up to the competition? With recent price drops from £119.99 to £69.99 we felt we should re-evaluate the Rush keyboard.

Razer Ornata Chroma Review
     Thu, Dec 01 2016 | 4:03P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer introduce a new patent pending technology with the Ornata (£/$79.99) and the Ornata Chroma keyboards. Dubbed the mecha-membrane, it is a ground up designed technology from Razer that intentionally merges the best aspects of both technologies. The result is said to give the soft touch, with a crisp, tactile actuation and feedback. So it would be fair to consider this as a completely new kind of switch technology.

XFX RX 480 GTR Black Edition Graphics Card Review
     Thu, Dec 01 2016 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The RX 480 is AMD’s flagship product in the Polaris series and designed to provide a stellar PC gaming experience without breaking the bank. Rather impressively, this mainstream graphics card can maintain fluid frame rates while powering some of the most demanding games available today. Not only that, the RX 480 supports FreeSync, Eyefinity and has an architecture built from the ground up for the latest APIs including Vulkan. Of course, there’s fierce competition around the £200 mark in the form of the GTX 1060 and AMD’s previous generation offerings. Although, the RX 480’s ability to deploy asynchronous compute efficiently makes it a good investment for the future.

NZXT S340 Elite Review
     Thu, Dec 01 2016 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At a first glance the S340 Elite from NZXT is one good looking case. The design is elegant and apart from that this particular case is available in different color combinations. It's quite clear that while developing this case, NZXT have had a strong focus on the design aspect and they wanted to come up with something beautiful. For us this is certainly already reason enough to have a thorough look at this case.

Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition Graphics Card Review
     Thu, Dec 01 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A little over a month ago NVIDIA announced both the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and GeForce GTX 1050 graphics cards. These are designed for MOBA gamers and gamers who will only be gaming in 1080p resolutions. These cards effectively replace the older GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card. The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is the more powerful of the two card featuring 768 CUDA cores spread across 6 streaming multiprocessors, 48 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and 4GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface. Today we will be taking a look at Zotac's OC Edition of the card which features a base clock of 1392 MHz and a GPU boost of 1506 MHz. This is compared to the GTX 1050 Ti's reference speeds of 1290 MHz core and 1392 MHz GPU boost."

Dell XPS 13 Review: Kaby Lake Makes A Fantastic 13-Inch Laptop Even Better
     Thu, Dec 01 2016 | 10:23A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mechanically speaking, Dell has done little to change or update its wildly popular XPS 13 and 15 series of premium consumer notebooks since their initial release. There's no mystery as to why that is the case, however. When something works this well, you stick with it. The Dell XPS 13 and XPS 15 have been two of the best selling notebooks in the company's history. However, despite minimal exterior design changes, Dell has taken a vigorous approach to refreshing the XPS 13 and 15 line of notebooks with the latest Intel processor platforms. In fact, the new Dell XPS 13 9360 we have on tap for review here today is one of the first notebooks we've received in for testing with Intel's 7th Generation Kaby Lake Core series processor technology powering the experience.

HyperX Cloud Stinger Headset
     Thu, Dec 01 2016 | 10:22A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In looking back on this headset one can’t help but be in awe of the great quality this headset has to offer at such an affordable price. The signature memory foam padding along with the light weight make for a combination that allows for long extended hours of gaming with a very comfortable experience. From time to time I almost forgot I was wearing the headset until I stood up, ran out of the room and was promptly jerked to the floor as my head snapped back... The cord is quite strong.

The Zenfone 3 offers a few interesting features like for example a fingerprint reader and an aluminum frame.

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.
