Tesoro GRAM Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
     Wed, Jul 27 2016 | 5:24P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Tesoro GRAM Spectrum has a compact rectangular shape without any extra ergonomic features, extra buttons, etc. To be honest, this is exactly what I want in a keyboard... just a keyboard. But, it is obviously not that simple as we are already aware that this is a high end gaming keyboard. Coupled with the understated looks are the capabilities that will make it right at home with any gaming PC.

Tenda AC15 AC1900 802.11ac Router Review
     Wed, Jul 27 2016 | 5:24P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At this point we've reviewed quite a few high-end AC routers, including tri-band routers, flagship dual-band models, and even the latest MU-MIMO devices too. However, the one portion of the market we haven't covered much is the one that exists on the more affordable end of the pricing spectrum. We all know there are quantifiable differences between a $100 and a $300 GPU, but is that also true for 802.11ac routers as well? After all, they're all branded as AC routers, and have similar features and specifications.

Kingston SSDNow UV400 SSD Review (480GB)
     Wed, Jul 27 2016 | 5:21P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to look into the performance of yet another entry level SSD. This trend, to offer entry level products, is very strong now and since TLC NAND is readily available, almost every manufacturer out has one of these cost effect drives in their portfolio. While these SSDs aren't the top performing devices enthusiasts love, they offer significantly better performance than HDDs in most scenarios and are much more reliable and more durable, making them ideal for use in notebooks and other mobile devices. Because of this, Kingston has always had products to fulfill this market segment under their SSDNow series and now the UV400 is the latest addition to this SSD product line. It is also their second TLC SSD in the market, following the UV300. It currently utilizes Toshiba 15nm TLC NAND and a 4-channel Marvell 88SS1074 controller to deliver speeds of up to 550MB/s read and 500MB/s write and is available in a variety of capacities to suit any individual's needs. With competitively low prices, an upgrade kit bundle option, and what looks to be some decent specs, let's see how the Kingston SSDNow UV400 does when we put it to the test in today's review shall we?

MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G RGB SLI Review
     Wed, Jul 27 2016 | 5:21P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The KitGuru team are big believers in 120hz+ gaming. The super smooth refresh rates can really enhance the gaming experience. If you are lucky enough to own a screen such as the Asus ROG Swift PG278Q 144hz Adaptive Sync panel (review HERE) or the new Asus PG279Q ROG Swift 165hz panel (buy HERE) then it becomes critical to drive super high frame rates to get the best experience. If you like to game with the maximum image quality even one GTX 1080 will struggle to deliver 120fps+ at 1440p so MSI sent us another MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G RGB to supplement our initial findings (Review HERE).

Review: APC Power Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500VA (BR1500G)
     Wed, Jul 27 2016 | 5:21P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Generally when most people purchase a new PC, one of the most important things they overlook is a quality UPS, or uninterruptible power supply. We’re definitely guilty of it since sometimes we don’t even run a UPS and we for sure don’t always recommend people pick up a UPS despite how crucial it is when it comes to protecting the computer..."

Best Computer Cases of 2016
     Wed, Jul 27 2016 | 5:20P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You may have a monster graphics card, a sweet water-cooling setup, and multi-colored braided cables, but your rig's potential is wasted if they're crammed into a case that doesn't complement the hardware. What you need is a shiny new chassis, and we've gathered the best you can buy today.

NVMe M.2 SSDs Austrian SSD
     Wed, Jul 27 2016 | 5:19P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In the end, the main takeaway is that temperature, and by extension thermal throttling, may still be a factor you need to consider with M.2 SSDs. Just how much high temperatures affect you, however, will depend on the airflow design of your case, the location of the M.2 ports on your motherboard, and your willingness to reconfigure your case layout to address the issue. Adding a $75 Angelbird Wings PX1 to your setup is certainly one way to go, but you could also easily save some money with the use of a standard PCIe adapter that is designed to allow good airflow around the SSD. At worst, you could simply rig up a case fan to blow directly across your motherboard's M.2 ports."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 G1 GAMING 6GB review
     Wed, Jul 27 2016 | 4:33P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the G1 GAMING GeForce GTX 1060 from Gigabyte. It is 20 bucks cheaper compared to the founders edition, but comes factory overclocked on that custom PCB fitted with a WindForce 2X cooler, Back-plate and even some RGB lighting options. Obviously this is a 6GB model as well.

Sony Xperia X Performance Review

Posted by: STAFF
The new Xperia X series may not carry the same name as its predecessor, the Xperia Z, but there's no mistaking these products for a revolutionary change. I've been testing the the top-end Xperia X Performance for a few weeks now and I've found it to be remarkably similar to the Xperia Z5, sadly this design is getting stale.

Streacom F7C Alpha Mini-ITX Case Review
     Wed, Jul 27 2016 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The small Dutch company Streacom manufactures high quality aluminium products since 2010. Their main focus is in PC cases. We have the opportunity to take a look at the Streacom F7c alpha optical case, which is a compact ITX case, well suited for building a media PC. For testing we used a Streacom Nano PSU and a ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac Intel LGA1150 motherboard.

ASUS GTX 1060 6GB STRIX OC Review
     Wed, Jul 27 2016 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia’s GTX 1060 is now available to buy and while the reference design (Founders Edition) is an interesting choice, it’s the customised variants from Nvidia partners that should offer the best cooling, performance and feature set. The ASUS GTX 1060 STRIX is the first of the custom GTX 1060s to be tested by KitGuru so let’s see what it has to offer.

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.
