Zotac NEN SN970 Steam Machine Review
     Fri, Feb 05 2016 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Ever since Valve announced SteamOS and Steam Machines there have been two Steam Machines that were shown the most. They were the Alienware Steam Machine and Zotac’s NEN SN970. Not that long ago we took a look at the Alienware unit, and now we have the NEN SN970 to review. This unit is part of Zotac’s extremely popular ZBOX line of mini PCs. Under the hood you have an Intel Core i5-6400T processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960, 8GB of memory, and a 1TB 2.5“ SATA hard drive. Like all Steam Machine’s the NEN SN970 will ship with SteamOS pre-installed and an official Steam Controller. This will bring gaming into the living room and you’ll have the massive Steam library of games to choose from, which has more games than either of the two major consoles. Let’s get to gaming and see what the NEN SN970 is all about!"

3D printers
     Fri, Feb 05 2016 | 2:24P | Printers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

“If you compare the specifications of these 3D printers, you'll find more technical differences. The minimum layer thickness varies per model, as does the printing speed. But it's important to not get confused by specifications like these. A smaller layer thickness doesn't necessarily mean a more detailed print. The amount of time that it takes to print an object depends more on the settings of the printer than on the maximum speed which the printer can move at.”

PNY CS2211 SSD Review (240GB/480GB)
     Fri, Feb 05 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just last week we announced PNY's latest SSD products for the new year, the CS1311 and CS2211. It just so happens that today we have some in our hands for review. The CS1311 is your basic, entry level SSD jam packed with TLC NAND for those looking for a cheap SSD upgrade from an HDD. As you may have noticed as of late, many companies have been following this trend to help push SSD adaptation to the masses, however, for enthusiasts and gamers, these lower performance SSDs are something which we avoid. For those of us who need more performance, the PNY CS2211 is a mainstream offering developed specifically for us, the gamer and enthusiast crowd. With a sleek design and great performance numbers on the spec sheet, the CS2211 should hold its own very well in today's review. But, let's not jump to any conclusions just yet, continue on as we poke and prod the new PNY CS2211 to see how it compares to the rest of the competition!

Roccat Kova 2016 Gaming Mouse Review
     Thu, Feb 04 2016 | 9:02A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A year ago, I had the opportunity to review a Roccat Tyon – my first Roccat product since I purchased one of their Pyra and Kova mice many years ago. I remember the original Kova fondly, but it wasn’t…quite there yet. I liked the ambidextrous design, price point, Lamborghini-esque styling, and simple approach to performance (an optical sensor with driver-less configuration); I wasn’t quite as impressed with the overall build quality, lack of granular customization options or lighting. Will the new Kova change my mind? Will the improved sensor, new looks, lighting, and robust construction replace my first impressions? Benchmark Reviews has the opportunity to take the new Kova (ROC-11-502) for a spin, so let’s find out.
