Das Keyboard 4 Professional Review
     Fri, Sep 04 2015 | 4:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the late 90's early 2000 it almost feels like the entire PC market revolves around gamers of all ages and types and that goes double when it comes to input devices like keyboards and mice. Manufacturers like Microsoft and IBM did try to cater to the needs of the professional community all around the world in the 90’s with high quality ergonomic keyboards and keyboards offering good tactile and audible feedback but now that i look back at that time that didn't really pan out since most manufacturers turned towards gamers really fast. There are still however some manufacturers that go against the "flow" of things and although their solutions are obviously aimed towards professionals they are also chosen by gamers all over the world. Das Keyboard is one of the leading companies in that field and today we're taking a look at their latest keyboard model the Das Keyboard 4 Professional.

Tenda W568R Wireless N900 Concurrent Dual-band Gigabit Router Review
     Fri, Sep 04 2015 | 4:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tenda has quite a long list of network products and today I’m taking a closer look at another one of them. The Tenda W568R is a wireless N900 Dual-Band Gigabit Router that promises a great performance and coverage. With the power of a dual-band router, you can easy use the slower and better reaching 2.4GHz band to check your mail and browse the internet while you use the faster 5GHz band for streaming and gaming. The Tenda W568R offers 450Mbps transfer speeds on both bands for a total of up to 900 Mbps throughput. That makes this router ideal for tasks such as 3D HD video streaming and multiplayer gaming.

Adata Premier SP550 SSD Review (240GB)
     Fri, Sep 04 2015 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Early last month we reviewed Adata’s newest SATA 6Gb/s contender in the enthusiast market segment, the XPG SX930. Utilizing a JMicron controller and premium MLC NAND, it delivered good performance at a decent price point. Today we are going to shift gears and take a look at their latest entry level SATA 6Gb/s SSD, the Premier SP550. The Premier SP550 is the first retail product we have come across with the Silicon Motion SM2256 controller since our initial preview back in February. Furthermore, it boasts SK Hynix TLC NAND, which is also a first for us. We are hoping to see an improvement in the SM2256’s performance now that the firmware has been finalized, so today’s results may be quite interesting to see. Can the Premier SP550, utilizing this new controller and TLC combo, deliver? Let’s find out.

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX Special Edition
     Fri, Sep 04 2015 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently Phanteks released the Special Edition of their Enthoo Evolv ITX case. The Special Edition’s are actually different color variants than the original, which was only available in black. The two Special Editions are black with red interior and white with black interior. These two new color combinations should help builders match components better and hell they just look pretty cool! We actually reviewed the Enthoo Evolv ITX back in March and even did a full watercooling build inside. Derrick did a great job on both of those reviews so I decided I would take a look at the case and see what it is all about. This will give a different point of view from someone who has never reviewed a Phanteks case before. Read along to see what I think of the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX Special Edition Case."

Case Mod Friday: I am Iron Man

Posted by: STAFF
"Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have DiLuzio Customs “I am Iron Man” build. Here is what he had to say about it, "So It's time for my annual build. I actually got started a couple of weeks ago, but now that I have enough content it's time to post. The theme of this build is Iron man as you can guess. This build will be based on the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv MAtx build for 2 reasons. Reason one, the Full ATX version of the case is huge, and this case will have to come with me when I travel. Reason 2 is the Mini ITX version of the case is made out of Steel.""

VisionTek Go Drive SSD RAID 0
     Fri, Sep 04 2015 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve been waiting the better part of a decade for SSD prices to drop and they have dropped somewhat. Often you find yourself a little cash strapped and can’t afford one of those infernally expensive PCI-E drives where you sign a contract to send your left arm in exchange for the drive. Hardware RAID is usually just out of reach of the average consumer and while hardware RAID cards are great they soon become outdated and an expensive paperweight. We’ll be using 2 x Visiontek Go Drives both 240GB drives (model 900512) on an Asus X99 PRO motherboard using the built-in Intel Rapid Storage Technology. Intels fancy words for RAID. We are using two drives and chipset limitations on most X99 boards are 6 drives in any RAID configuration. We’ve messed with RAID enough that we can tell you any combination of drives whose speed is about 1500MB/s is about all you want to use. Three 500MB/s drives top out the bandwidth on built-in RAID.

Here's How To Keep Microsoft's Nose Out Of Your Personal Data In Windows 10
     Fri, Sep 04 2015 | 9:00A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Amid the privacy concerns and arguably invasive nature of Microsoft's Windows 10 regarding user information, it's no surprise that details on how to minimize data leaks as much as possible have been requested. To this end, we've put together a quick guide to help out. If you are using Windows 10, or plan to upgrade soon, it's worth bearing in mind a number of privacy related options that are available, even during the installation/upgrade. If you are already running the OS and forgot to turn them off during installation (or didn't even see them), they can be accessed by...

Tt eSPORTS BLACK V2 Gaming Mouse Review
     Thu, Sep 03 2015 | 4:02P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During our time with the Black V2, the product seemed quite responsive and comfortable, while the extra buttons can be accessed easily when in-game. The mouse was tested in multiple game genres and here we could count League of Legends, Echo of Soul, The Talos Principle, Serious Sam BFE but also GTA V; thanks to the new AVAGO sensor, the experience was accurate and if we feel that the default DPI steps are not for us in the current game, we can easily reconfigure them from the supplied application.
