Creative Labs iRoar Bluetooth Speaker Review
     Sat, May 28 2016 | 12:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I may have a bit more eclectic taste than most but I ran through a gauntlet of music from the likes of Pink Floyd, Enigma, Bach and Dj Aoki. No question the iRoar is easy to use for streaming and sounds great even with the default Blaster X profile enabled.

Corsair Lapdog Review
     Sat, May 28 2016 | 12:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gaming in the living room environment has been dominated by the games consoles for, well, ever. Though with the coming Steam machines, Steam OS, combined with large, Ultra High definition TV screens, this trend is set to change. Using the living for PC gaming tends to be relatively stressful and awkward particularly with games where a keyboard and mouse is a must have. Our experiences alone range from sitting against the sofa, pulling up a coffee table, using cushions, chopping boards and receiving several splinters from left over ply. So Corsair have now released a solution to fix all of that and have rather fittingly named it the Lapdog.

Intel Skull Canyon NUC6i7KYK Mini PC Review
     Sat, May 28 2016 | 12:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We first got a glimpse of the Intel NUC, code named Skull Canyon, back at CES in January. To say this isn't your Daddy's NUC would be an understatement. Styled with a new thinner but longer, all black chassis design with digital grid markings and Intel's classic Skull branded logo, this NUC steps up and calls you out. Reminiscent of the original Skulltrail platform and Intel's countless enthusiast platforms with the mark of the skull thereafter, the Intel Skull Canyon NUC6i7KYK mini PC not only boasts a Skylake quad-core CPU that boosts to 3.5GHz, but also Intel's fastest Iris Pro Graphics 580 integrated graphics core, with 128MB of on-chip eDRAM (embedded DRAM) and the ability to boost to 1GHz. Take your average mainstream desktop PC, slice off some of its expansion slots, give it a generalized bandwidth shot in the arm and you've got the teeny-tiny little Skull Canyon NUC, ready to kick ass and take names. It's your basic Napoleon complex in a PC, but in a good way.

SeeMeCNC Eris @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, May 28 2016 | 9:03A | Printers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So yesterday I did a relatively short rundown on what is 3d printing and I also spoke about my visit with SeeMeCNC. Well today I’m actually going to dive into the SeeMeCNC Eris 3d printer that I picked up when I was visiting them. The Eris is their brand new portable delta printer. Not only is easy to carry, but they set out to make the Eris their first truly out of the box and printing experience. Generally, with most 3d printers you have a lot of build and setup time, but with the Eris shipping completely built and with their new Auto Leveling system they are hoping it will be a great printer for new 3d printing users. Well it just so happens, I’m that 3d printing noob, so I’m going to run you guys/girls through my experience from start to finish to help you decide if the Eris is the printer for you.

Case Mod Friday: Digital Invasion
     Sat, May 28 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! The mod we have today comes from Simple Modz and is a tribute to the classic game Space Invaders. There are Space Invader hints on both the outside and inside of the case. The system is built inside of the In Win 805 case and Simple Modz added some really cool digital camouflage that really sets the case off!"

     Sat, May 28 2016 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus PL-N12 WiFi HomePlug AV500 Powerline Adapter kit is a relatively simple pair of adapters that simultaneously extend network range over both power lines and wireless. Designed for affordability, with support for wireless standards up to 802.11n, it supports an encrypted wired signal over power lines, adds a second Ethernet port to the main access point and has a useful standby mode to cut energy use when idle.

Thecus 2-bay N2810 4K NAS Review
     Sat, May 28 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The N2810 SMB Tower NAS from Thecus packs the low-power Intel Celeron N3050 Dual Core CPU at its heart and is paired with 2GB of DDR3 RAM. Two LAN ports are available for failover or LAG configurations while the HDMI interface can display up to 4K output (30Hz) on our TV, with the possibility to playback 4K video in H264 format (since it is supported via hardware)."

Kingston DataTraveler 4000 G2 64GB Encrypted USB Drive
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 2:42P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”As I stated when I reviewed the DataTraveler 2000, I am a big proponent and user of encrypted drives even for personal use, as you never know what someone might do if they got ahold of your personal data. While there are some apps out there that can encrypt data, they are not as secure against cracking and vulnerabilities as a hardware-encrypted drive is. Security aside, when it came to performance, I was blown away. I have used the Aegis Secure Key for a long time and the DataTraveler 2000 for the last month, and I was impressed by their speeds until now. I really thought that the software-based security, even though the encryption is hardware-based, would cut into the speeds affecting the overall transfers, but boy was I wrong. The DataTraveler 4000 G2 was a monster with some impressive read speeds and write speeds that were faster than their advertised speeds. For transferring large files, this drive would be a dream come true. The security was very easy to set up and a breeze to use; I did not experience any issues. While not as versatile as the pin-based systems like the Aegis Secure Key 3.0 and the DataTraveler 2000, it was easy to employ and I never had any usage issues. Furthermore, having the FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Compliance means I can use this drive in my work environment without breaking any protocols.”

1UP Keyboards Pok3r Sleeve @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 2:41P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Returning readers are sure to know that I have a bit of a thing for keyboards, especially smaller 60% keyboards. In the past we have covered them multiple times including a few custom made products made specifically for the keyboard enthusiast market like custom leather wrist rests and an all oak Poker case. What I’ve learned is that when there is a gap in the market from the bigger companies people from all over step up and start selling products that they originally designed for themselves. A great example of this is 1UP Keyboards. A year ago I reached out to them about us covering their sleeves because I had been following them and because keyboard sleeves are a perfect way to protect your expensive keyboards when taking them to and from LANs or work. Well they declined at the time but recently reached back out to us about it. Given we are in the middle of the LAN season I couldn’t turn down a chance to protect my Pok3r like my wife’s Poker 2 is protected.

Toshiba OCZ RD400 M.2 NVMe 512 GB Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 2:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the OCZ RD400, Toshiba launches an NVMe-SSD for end users. The drive which is lying front of us appears to perform extremely well pumping out up to 2600 MB/s sequentially reading and 1600 MB/s sequentially writing. This definitely makes us wonder how much of that horsepower is available in real life.[

ATI to AMD back to ATI? A Journey in Futility
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 2:40P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Trouble is brewing for AMD, Radeon Technologies Group, and Lisa Su, CEO and President. While on the surface it may just seem as though AMD engineers have once again missed the mark when it comes to building a new high-end graphics technology, but there is a lot more to the story.

The Zalman Z9 NEO aims to offer a diverse and useful feature set and good looks and liquid-cooling compatibility, all at an affordable price. Add the fact that it comes equipped with a whooping 5 (!!) fans and it just got even more interesting, while the choice between a black or white version does not help curb the expectations we have diving into this review.

ASUS X99-Deluxe II Review
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 2:39P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One such board to receive a revival is the X99-Deluxe II. Based on the original X99-Deluxe, the Deluxe II carries with it a subtle aesthetics facelift but has had an overhaul to the fundamental features. Not only is Deluxe II capable of hosting the next-generation of processors, but there is also support for USB 3.1, and a large dose of storage – which includes SATA, SATA Express, M.2 and U.2. ASUS has also fine-tuned key areas so that gamers can take advantage of x16/x16 modes for multi-GPU configurations.

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.
