NVIDIA Tegra 4-based tablets
     Thu, Jul 31 2014 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The first unit is a 7" device designed by NVIDIA and manufactured by EVGA, hence the EVGA Tegra NOTE 7 name. Marketed mostly to gamers, this tablet comes with an impressive feature set for the $199 MSRP asking price. The second tablet is the latest member of the Transformer Pad lineup from ASUS. It's a high end tablet that comes with a hefty $449.99 price tag, but sports one of the most beautiful displays I've ever seen in a portable device."

Patriot STELLAR 64GB
     Thu, Jul 31 2014 | 12:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I can't say that I will really use the drive just for my phone or tablet in such a manner. I'll likely use the drive in exFAT format and use it as a typical flash drive on the go. However, the microUSB is the key bonus to this drive all around. I couldn't really find too many other drives out there with similar capabilities that weren't either massive in size, or well, really just massive in size. Small and on the go are two words meant to be together.”

Silverstone Raven RV 05 Review
     Thu, Jul 31 2014 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Raveon RV05 is the latest model from from SilverStone that got added to their well known case series. The product features a unique design and since it's a SilverStone case, it should also come with impeccable build quality. A very interesting feature is, that the motherboard has been rotated by 90° in order to make use of the chimney effect. For a price of 100 Euro, this sound like a really interesting product, doesn't it?

Silicon Power Slim S55 240GB SSD Review
     Thu, Jul 31 2014 | 10:36A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Who would had thought even just 5 years ago that a few years later one could just walk inside an electronics store and pick an SSD (Solid State Drive) out of a whole section filled with models from virtually every single storage media manufacturer out there? Well i always thought it would be just a matter of time but i have to admit that i never really expected to see SSD models get released even by companies which appeared out of nowhere and without any previous products in the market. That being said the competition with the leading manufacturers that hold the largest percentage of the SSD market as we speak is always a good thing since it helps keep product quality at good levels while it also helps control prices so i can`t say i mind. Today on our test bench we have one of the most recent SSD models to hit the market the Slim S55 240GB by our close friends over at Silicon Power."

Kingston SSDNow mS200 240GB mSATA SSD Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Thu, Jul 31 2014 | 9:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In real world use, the mS200 240GB mSATA SSD proved to be exactly what I expected. It made a notebook computer that didn`t seem all that old seem so much faster and more enjoyable. The drive was capable of hitting its target read and write speeds (540MB/s and 530MB/s respectively) during the execution of benchmarks, but results will not look as impressive if the test selected uses incompressible data."

Plextor M6S PX-256M6S 256GB SSD Review
     Thu, Jul 31 2014 | 6:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid state drives (SSDs) based on the SATA standard may not have gone a very long way in terms of raw read/write performance levels during the past few years but they have advanced a lot both in features (AES hardware encryption, TCG Opal 2.0/IEE-1667 support, garbage collection/TRIM, power-loss protection) and build quality (higher controller MTBF, NAND Flash write endurance) effectively making them far more solid solutions compared to earlier models (there used to be a time when SSDs would just die on us after just being used for a few weeks). However until the next SATA standard makes its appearance in the market in numbers SATA III based solutions (along with PCIex ones) are ontop of our list and so although we don`t expect to encounter performance miracles still we need to check and compare all the models available in the market we can get our hands on. Today on our test bench we have the latest offering by Plextor the M6S 256GB SSD model."

Gamdias Aegis gaming set review
     Wed, Jul 30 2014 | 12:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is rare that I get a product through the post to review and have to spend a good few minutes figuring out just what it is. That is what happened this week though when I got my first look at the Gamdias Aegis gaming set. It turns out that it is a USB hub and headset stand that sticks on to the side of your monitor. Bizarre? Perhaps. Unique? Certainly.

Superlux HD668B Headphones Review
     Wed, Jul 30 2014 | 12:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Superlux is a Taiwanese manufacturer of audio components that targets the “affordable market”. Their headphones have slowly entered the market during the past years and they have made quiet a hype in various enthusiast forums and gaming communities. At first, we were quite skeptical about the relatively unknown company as it is the first time we ever heard from them, and at such a low price, the Superlux HD 668B Headphones are the most affordable set of headphones that Benchmark Reviews has ever taken a close look at.

ler Master Quick Fire Rapid-i Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Wed, Jul 30 2014 | 12:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master has re-built the Quick Fire series with the Rapid-i model, which features fully-customizable backlighting, but also some preset catchy modes, which sport the ActivLite marketing name. More modes will be introduced in the near future via firmware flash and the tenkeyless design saves a lot of space while making the product lighter for going to LAN parties.

Intel Core i7-4960X vs Core i7-3930K 3-way SLI Gaming-Performance
     Wed, Jul 30 2014 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gamers are always curious to know what benefit they get from an expensive CPU in terms of frames per second. In this series of articles we will have a look at different CPUs, running at different clock speeds and with each article we will compare two CPUs. These CPUs will be place in a test system that's been equipped with no less than three high-end graphics cards in order to open the GPU bottleneck.

Thecus N7510 7 Bay NAS @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jul 30 2014 | 10:41A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Smaller, Cooler, more efficient, those are three things that I have been working on with both our LAN equipment and in my own office for a few years now. For years the enthusiast in me would get excited about adding a new server, more storage capacity, and new toys to play with. At some point you look back and realize that as much fun as the toys are, you could really get the same job done with one device when you were using two or three before. Not only are you wasting space, but you are also using substantially more electricity each month/year to power it all. On top of all of that when its summer time, you have all of this hardware putting out more and more heat, fighting against your air conditioning, or even worse its already hot and you are making it even hotter. Late last year I took at look at the hardware we use here in the LanOC office and decided to work on combining as much as I could. Today Im going to tell you about that experience."

Kingston MobileLite Wireless G2 Card Reader Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Wed, Jul 30 2014 | 9:12A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While these new features help make this an even more appealing device for travelling professionals, it still offers the same features that made the first version great for professionals and families. Being able to stream/share files with a handful of different wireless device simultaneously is still the key selling point, and the MobileLite Wireless G2 still handles that task with ease."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
