Fractal Design Define series
     Thu, Dec 08 2016 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Fractal Design Define series has version of the case for everyone, and this Mini C is a welcome addition to the family for anyone considering a smaller build, but not willing to make the sacrifices necessary for mini-ITX. The Mini C is well-built, looks great, and produces a clean build. It has a small volume, meaning GPU temps will depend more on airflow than usual, so adding to the single 120 mm intake fan is a must to keep things cool and quiet. Overall, I find it very easy to like and recommend the Define Mini C, which carries a retail price of $84.99 for the windowed version we reviewed."

Posted by: STAFF
A few months ago, we reviewed the Dream Machines DM1 PRO, and Dream Machines is now back with the DM1 PRO S. This version has an updated sensor, has been slimmed down to be even lighter, and has a rather nice glossy finish. Improvements, which could be a game changer.

ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1080 Gaming A8G Review
     Thu, Dec 08 2016 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at the slightly more conservatively clocked ‘A8G’ ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1080. With an out-of-the-box boost clock of up to 1809MHz (1835MHz if you enable the OC mode in ASUS’ software), the A8G STRIX is around 90MHz slower than the STRIX OC O8G model. But for the A8G’s reduced clock speed you get a purchase cost saving pushing towards £100 and considerably wider availability from retailers.

Intel SSD 600p Series 512GB NVMe SSD Review
     Thu, Dec 08 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking for a low cost M.2 NVMe drive for your desktop PC or laptop you are looking at the right review. Intel recently released the SSD 600P Series drives that use the M.2 2280 PCIe 3 x4 (single-sided) interface and is one of the very first NVMe drives to feature 3D TLC NAND Flash memory. Intel went with the Silicon Motion SM2260 controller on this particular series and pair it with Intel 384Gb 32-layer 3D TLC NAND Flash memory. The result was an affordable client storage drive series that Intel hopes will lure some people away from the high-end SATA III SSD market and over to PCIe M.2 segment. With pricing starting at just $55.99 for a 128GB drive and topping out at $289.99 for the 1TB drive, the Intel SSD 600p series might do just that...

Posted by: STAFF
With the GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X, MSI has yet another high-end graphics card in its portfolio, which features a decent factory OC as well as a custom PCB and custom cooler. Apparently MSI's Gaming series graphics cards are always very interesting cards to have a look at, since almost always they're amongst the best cards money can buy.

Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte Brix Gaming UDH is a vertically oriented gaming system that features an Intel Core i7 ‘Skylake’ processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 graphics card with pricing starting at $999.

ASUS is one of the biggest names in the PC hardware market, with a steady stream of award-winning motherboards, graphics cards and much more being released every year. Their peripherals are still relatively new territory for them, but they’ve certainly been gaining in popularity, and their latest headset, the ROG STRIX Wireless, may be one of their best yet.

Lexar Professional 1000x microSDHC UHS-II 32GB Card Review
     Wed, Dec 07 2016 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 32GB version of the Professional 1000x microSDHC card from Lexar is able to deliver performance as advertised and it can be used with both mainstream and high-end devices as camcorders, action cameras, tablets, smartphones, laptops, drones, PCs and many more. The UHS-II standard is using a different pin-layout, but for backwards compatibility we can see the classic gold-plated contacts in order to operate with UHS-I-compatible devices or even non-UHS-I devices, in the case it will operate at Class 10 speeds."

Lenovo Yoga Book Review: A 2-In-1 With A Trick
     Wed, Dec 07 2016 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo recently released one of the most interesting tablet hybrids in recent memory, just in time for the holidays. The Yoga Book has a digital keyboard that doubles as a sketch pad that even accommodates plain old paper, giving users several ways to draw images or jot notes. In fact, the tablet aspect of the machine is one of the most creative (and fun) concepts we’ve seen this year. The Yoga Book differs from traditional tablet first hybrid devices in several ways, but the most noticeable of these is the permanently attached keyboard, which is a departure from traditional 10-inch tablet form factors. Some tablet-first devices, like the 2016 version of the Dell XPS 12 and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet, ship with a detachable keyboard. The 2-in-1 format is arguably more functional than a lone slate...

ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe Smartphone Review
     Tue, Dec 06 2016 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS launched an array of products a few weeks back at its Zenvolution event in New York City. Among them was the gorgeous ZenBook 3 Ultrabook, the convertible Transformer 3, and an assortment of Android-based smartphones that carried ZenFone 3 branding. The four ZenFone 3 models that launched included the entry-level ZenFone 3 Laser, a 5.5” ZenFone 3 Deluxe, a 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe, and a flagship 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe Special Edition, which packs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 SoC. The specifications, build materials, and pricing for the various ZenFone 3 phones that launched are all different. The ZenFone 3 Laser is a $199 phone, which the 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe Special Edition commands a loft $799. The 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe that we’ll be showing you here, however, hits somewhat of a sweet spot in our opinion. As you’ll see in the spec table below, the 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe is packing some serious heat, which competes favorably with some of today’s best smartphones. But its price is far more palatable...

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.
