SuperTooth HD VOICE In-Car Speakerphone Review
     Wed, Dec 17 2014 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even if the law in some countries didn't "force" the use of hands free devices while in the car purely for safety reasons i really believe that this is one of the most important things drivers should always have in their cars (providing the car doesn't have a built-in one tied to the music system). Of course the best solution is indeed a factory mounted speakerphone hardwired to the music system of the car but the cost of such devices is quite high and after looking around online i can't say that many car models feature such devices in their basic packages (not to mention that you may not even own a brand new car to begin with). The next best solution is one I've been using for many years now and that's no other than portable car speakerphones which can be used whenever you're in the car and provide good audio quality for both ends not to mention that these cost a lot less and require no installation whatsoever. Today we'll be testing the latest car speakerphone by SuperTooth the HD VOICE.

BIOS Option Of The Week - AGP to DRAM Prefetch.
     Wed, Dec 17 2014 | 9:01A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This is where the Primary VGA BIOS feature comes in. It allows you to select whether to boot the system using the AGP graphics card or the PCI graphics card. If you are only using a single graphics card, then the BIOS will detect it as such and boot it up, irrespective of what you set the feature to. However, there may be a slight reduction in the time taken to detect and initialize the card if you select the proper setting for this BIOS feature. For example..."

Func MS-2 Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Dec 15 2014 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Func MS-2 mouse has given us a good impression as the MS-3 version before it and is able to deliver a good gaming experience for mainstream gamers and seems to be better suited for fingertip grip users with smaller hands. The soft-touch coating offers a good grip which is important during long gaming sessions while the extra buttons are carefully placed for easy accessibility.

Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 16GB Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Dec 14 2014 | 10:58A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first ever DDR4 memory kit that we reviewed was from Crucial and it was their standard JEDEC kit. While this memory was impressive it is not what most gamers and enthusiasts are looking for. Today we are taking a look at a second DDR4 kit from Crucial, this time it is of their Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 memory. This memory features an operating speed of 2400 MHz with timings of 16-16-16-5 at 1.2v. The 16 GB kit that we are looking at today of course has some very attractive, yet non-intrusive heatspreaders as well. Lets get this kit on the test bench and see what they can do!"

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
