LG G3 Review: QHD High Res Android Power
     Sat, Jul 26 2014 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LG is probably getting a little tired of scraping for brand recognition versus big names like Samsung, Apple and yes, even Google. However, the company is also likely taking solace in the fact that their smartphone sales figures are heading for an all-time high in 2014, with an estimated 60 million units projected to be sold this year. Part of that success probably comes from private label sales of devices like the LG-made Google Nexus 5, though the LG G2 certainly sold its fair share as well. So, at the end of the day, LG is sort of the "sleeper" of smartphone makers and as a major OEM display manufacturer, they've got the chops to compete with the best of breed in the race for superphone dominance.

Posted by: STAFF
Samsung unveiled its latest flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S, at an event in New York City, and the new device is thin, lightweight, and sports a killer Super AMOLED display.

A Waterproof Smartphone For Folks
     Sat, Jul 26 2014 | 12:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Life is full of accidents and mishaps. Unfortunately, our favorite electronic devices often pay the price for our clumsiness. If you’ve ever jumped in the pool, forgetting your smartphone was in your pocket or accidentally dropped your phone in the toilet, you know all too well the feeling of frustration and disappointment that comes when you realize you’ve destroyed your coveted device. Other than monthly device insurance costs, an option is to consider a waterproof or resistant smartphone, like Samsung's Galaxy S4 Active or the Galaxy S 5, which is what we’re looking at today. Recently, Kyocera and Sprint teamed up to offer the new Hydro Vibe waterproof smartphone.

Samsung Pro microSDXC UHS-1 U1 Card Review (64GB)
     Sat, Jul 26 2014 | 10:41A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months ago Samsung launched their new series of SD and microSD cards. They are segmented into three categories. The lowest being their Standard series for the typical every day, non-performance oriented consumer. Next up is their EVO series, marketed towards those who want a little more performance out of their storage with transfer speeds up to 48MB/s. Finally, they have their Pro series, aka professional performance. Their Pro series cards are advertised for read speeds up to 90MB/s! For this review, we have the Samsung Pro microSDXC 64GB card. This is a UHS-I U1 speed rated SD card, thus it should provide those with the need to record HD and 3D video ample write bandwidth and consistency to do so."

ROCCAT Lua Gaming Mouse - BCCHardware
     Sat, Jul 26 2014 | 10:36A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This mouse has some really important features to designed into it, one of which that is its ambidextrous V-shape. This is a huge plus for those left handed people who may have trouble looking for a mouse. As this is only a three button mouse, this design works very well here. I shall note that while I am terrible with my left hand, it felt very comfortable in my left hand as it did in my right hand."

Maingear Rush Review With Radeon R9 295X2 CrossFire
     Fri, Jul 25 2014 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we reviewed the Maingear Epic Rush a few months ago, we found its performance jaw-dropping, and thus we expected the same out of its sibling, the Maingear Rush. However, these are different systems with different configurations on board. For instance, they have different CPUs--the Rush we're testing today has a newer, more powerful GPU configuration, and Maingear approached storage on the two quite differently as well. What both systems definitely do share is high performance and impeccable build quality. The Maingear Rush is a top-shelf system with killer components; there are no compromises here, and no concern for the final bill either...

AMD FirePro W9100 vs NVIDIA Quadro K6000
     Fri, Jul 25 2014 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been almost two years since AMD launched the FirePro W9000 and kicked off a new battle in the workstation GPU wars. Today, we're reviewing the company's FirePro W9100 -- a new card based on the same Hawaii-class GPU as the desktop R9 290 and R9 290X, but aimed at the workstation market and professional consumers. Does AMD's new card have what it takes to seize the professional performance crown? The W9100 is a full Hawaii GPU with 2,816 stream processors, 320GB/s of memory bandwidth, and six mini-DisplayPorts, all of which support DP1.2 and 4K output. It carries more RAM than any other AMD GPU -- a whopping 16GB of GDDR5 on a single card.

MeMO Pad 7 Review: Intel Bay Trail Inside
     Fri, Jul 25 2014 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS recently refreshed its 7-inch MeMO Pad 7 tablet with Intel’s new Atom Z3745 Bay Trail-based processor. Having overcome its rocky start, the latest generation of Atom processors is building a reputation for power efficiency and computational chops. Despite its early days in ill-fated netbooks, today's Atom looks to be a good fit for tablets and smartphones and sports new-found graphics horsepower that is up to the task for these types of devices. We checked out the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176C, which comes in at a relatively affordable $149.99, in light of competing tablets in this category...

Creative Sound Blaster ZxR Versus Onboard Audio
     Fri, Jul 25 2014 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we're looking at the Sound Blaster ZxR, Creative's flagship audio solution for PC power users. It's also one of three available cards in Creative's ultra high-performance Z-Series of sound cards, the ZxR being the top-end solution. It boasts a signal-to-noise (SNR) of 124dB that Creative claims is 89.1 times better than your motherboard's integrated audio solution. It also features a built-in headphone amplifier, beamforming microphone, a multi-core Sound Core3D audio processor, and various proprietary audio technologies. We'll examine the Sound Blaster ZxR in detail and figure out what kind of audience is best suited for a card of this caliber. To do that, we'll compare the ZxR to onboard audio and offer up some subjective analysis based on what we hear, as well as look at any potential impact in gaming performance...

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.
