Huawei Ascend Mate 7 Review
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 4:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The phablet market isn't just the iPhone 6 Plus or the Galaxy Note line. While they get a ton of attention from the media and marketing departments, there are plenty of other options available. One such option is Huawei's Ascend Mate 7, a six-inch handset that is full of surprises and certainly worth more attention than it gets.

Cherry MX Blue switch edition of Cougar's 600K
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have on the review bench the Cherry MX Blue switch edition of Cougar's 600K, a mechanical gaming keyboard that follows in the footsteps of the Cougar 700K without programmable keys and macros (or even configuration software) but still sports backlit LED keys anyway. See if retains more than just the 700K's bells and whistles in our evaluation!

ZOTAC ZBOX Sphere OI520+ Review
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Comprising of an Intel i5 Processor, 4GB of speedy DDR3 and a 500GB hard disk it has the specification to match many 'home PC' but has the footprint (or rather a diameter) of just 16cm. It has plenty of connectivity, its looks great, it is easy to upgrade if you wish, has a low power consumption rate and should perform as well as any other PC with a similar specification. What ZOTAC have created here is truly astonishing when you look back over the years on how PCs have evolved to what we see today but enough reminiscing. Time we put this product to the test...

Plextor M6e Black Edition SSD Review (256GB) - Back in Black!
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 1:15P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SATA 6Gb/s has been a bottleneck for SSDs over the past few years, utilizing multiple SSDs in RAID arrays has been best practice to overcome it. Plextor had seen this problem and originally released the M6e early last year in attempt to target the gamer market. While PCIe SSDs were not uncommon, their product is one of the only easy to boot M.2 PCIe SSDs out. There is no need of any special drivers, you just plug and play. By utilizing a PCIe 2.0 x2 connection, the M6e promises speeds that break past the SATA 6Gb/s barrier. Gamers and enthusiasts who wanted faster sequential performance now had a great option to buy. However, while their target market is the gamer crowd, their product doesnt reflect that aesthetically. As you can see in our review, the drive and adapter is made out of an OEM green PCB. It isnt that flashy or cool to look at, put bluntly, it is just boring. Because of this, Plextors team decided to go back to the drawing board and create a new edition that reflected what gamers want in their rigs, something that looks cool and goes fast. At CES this year, Plextor unveiled their M6e Black Edition."

Plextor M6e Black Edition 256GB PCIe SSD @ Custom PC Review

As such, today we’ll be reviewing the Plextor M6e Black Edition. Like the original, the M6e Black Edition will be available in capacities of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. Surprisingly, rated performance between the original and the Black Edition are identical as well. However, unlike the original, the Plextor M6e Black Edition will only be available..."

Netgear Arlo Smart Home Security Camera Kit Review
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having an indoor/outdoor high-definition home security system was once something reserved for rich people that had more money than they knew what to do with. In recent years the price on home security cameras and systems has greatly dropped and the average Joe can now afford and get the peace of mind that a security system brings. Even though you can afford to purchase a home security system do you really want to get up on a ladder and run all the data and power lines across your house? That has been one of the major road blocks for home security systems as they’ve been a pain in the butt to install and people have been avoiding them altogether. Netgear hopes to change all that with a new entirely wireless self-monitored home security system called Arlo.

Nanoxia Deep Silence 4 mATX/mITX PC Case Review
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How would you reply to a very good friend if he asked your opinion about which is the best mATX compatible PC case in the market currently? Obviously i can't speak on your behalf but when a good friend asked this of me roughly a week ago i honestly didn't know what to tell him since i doubt there's a perfect one out there. So instead of answering his question i asked him what he thought was the most important feature/aspect for his dream mATX case. Of course we all know how hard it is to choose a PC case based on a single thing but everything has to start from someplace. So after discussing this for a while over a cup of coffee he decided that he wanted a high quality and virtually noiseless mATX tower which he could also use in his bedroom during the night without worrying about waking up by it. With that in mind my answer was very clear and actually had to do with today’s review of the Deep Silence 4 mITX/mATX PC Case by Nanoxia.

Hands-On: Alienware Alpha Intel-Powered Gaming PC Console
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We first caught wind on the Alienware Alpha in the lead-up to Valve’s Steam Box announcements, prior to the Consumer Electronics Show. If you’re unfamiliar with the Alienware Alpha, it is a sleek, small form factor gaming PC, designed specifically for gamers. Valve is not quite ready with Steam OS or the Steam Controller, so the whole Steam Box angle is on hold for now, but that didn’t stop Alienware from re-tooling a bit and shipping the Alpha with Windows 8.1 instead...

Corsair Gaming M65 RGB Laser Gaming Mouse
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 9:00A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Corsair RGB series launched recently. Following on from their successful range of mechanical RGB keyboards, such as the K70 RGB which we reviewed, you can also pick up their new RGB series gaming mice. The Corsair Gaming M65 is at my disposal today and sports the new lighting gear, making them (hopefully) an ideal match for the new range of keyboards. Corsair have had great success with their range of gaming peripherals. I’ve yet to test a Corsair mouse that didn’t impress me in one way or another, so I have pretty high expectations for the M65 RGB. The mouse is very well equipped with a range of features that are sure to appeal to gamers. There’s a high-end laser sensor with a range of 50 to 8200dpi, so we should have impressive accuracy and blazing fast tracking speed. The mouse is lightweight, but also comes with a weight tuning system for those that prefer something a little heavier. The side of the mouse has a sniper button and then we’ve got all the usual features such as internal memory, programmable buttons, three zone RGB lighting and more. The M65 RGB certainly sounds like a capable gaming mouse on paper, so let’s take a closer look at what it has to offer.

Lexar Workflow DD512 Review
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today's sample offers a huge 512GB of storage courtesy of Micron technology and is an external drive that can be used alone or as part of Lexar's Workflow product line. Connecting up to a USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 backwards compatible) means that most modern PCs or laptops can take advantage of this diminutive storage device that promises to offer SSD speeds without a compromise on storage capacity.

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.
