 [LATEST]  Crucial MX100 256Gb SSD Review
     Sat, Dec 20 2014 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial have been memory manufacturers for years now and they have a big product catalogue to browse. They are also a common name when considering components for any PC build, so many of you will be familiar with them, or will have owned one of their products. We are going to look at the Crucial MX100 256Gb Solid State Drive today and put it through a series of synthetic and real world tests. So with a popular and widely appreciated brand coupled with a decent sized 256Gb Solid State Drive, let’s see what it can offer."

 [LATEST]  GPU Charts - 1080p, 1440p, UHD - Updated

 [LATEST]  MSI AG270 2QE-037US Gaming AIO Review - Core i7 + GTX 980M
     Sat, Dec 20 2014 | 9:02A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To overcome that price difference, you have to consider the advantages offered by a system like the AG270. Integration: you get all of this hardware in a small overall package that is pre-built and warrantied. Mobility: though not as mobile as a notebook you can definitely take this system to different rooms or even LAN parties with relative ease. Size: the 27-in 1080p screen will definitely provide a better integrated gaming experience than any 15-in or 17-in notebook. Simplicity: you get a touch screen and the ability to have a single computer that Mom and Dad can safely use, while also harnessing the power of the GTX 980M for your Battlefield addiction."

 [LATEST]  MSI X99S Gaming 7 motherboard.
     Sat, Dec 20 2014 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I's X99S Gaming 7 is something of a rarity; MSI has included a full stable of gamer-centric features and yet it is quite affordable when compared to other X99 motherboards.

 [LATEST]  Tesoro Tizona Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
     Sat, Dec 20 2014 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In the end, the Tesoro Tizona is a well made, good looking keyboard that has great physical flexibility. Unfortunately, there are only three extra keys and no software. While the main keyboard is at a competitive ~$70 dollars, the number pad is at a ~$40 premium (for $30 more you can have the main keyboard). This brings the total to ~$110 dollars, which is still surprisingly competitive (keeping in mind the quality and versatility). As one of the lower priced keyboards by Tesoro, it hold up well among its brethren and if the quality stands the test of time, it also compares to many really big name brand mechanical keyboards. As a fairly new company, I think Tesoro will be going far if this keeps up.”

 [LATEST]  Lian Li PC-O5SX @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Dec 20 2014 | 7:33A | Cases | PermaLink

With an intricate interior that can house powerful enthusiast-grade hardware, a great mixture of materials, and an industrial look, the PC-O5SX aims to combine the best of both worlds - design and function."

Inateck FE2005 USB 3.0 UASP External 2.5 SATA Enclosure Review
     Sat, Dec 20 2014 | 6:04A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far as external USB to SATA enclosures go, the Inateck FE2005 is about as simple as they come. It`s only plastic, but more than adequate for most applications. The performance was very good considering its simplicity, and the price is low enough to pick one of these up even if only for the occasional OS cloning / upgrade process. I`m personally eyeing one of their new 3.5 docks, as desktop HDD`s also see a benefit from queued commands, making those media copies and backups even faster than before."

Guardian Angel Safety Outlet Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Dec 20 2014 | 4:35A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Children love to get into things and mess around with items that they are not supposed to.

Ever year there are about 3,900 emergency room visits and around 100 deaths revolving around power outlets. This is where a new product called the Guardian Angel Safety Outlet comes in. The Guardian Angel Outlet is an electric outlet that provides what is said to be absolute safety along with the convenience one expects from a normal outlet"

COUGAR has furnished this keyboard with a sturdy aluminium panel and armed it with a multitude of customisable features including additional keys, LED backlighting, and N-key rollover."

Code Keyboard 104 key and TKL models @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Dec 19 2014 | 10:38P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So the story behind todays review is that Weyman Kwong of WASD Keyboards and Jeff Atwood got together because they couldnt find a simple and clean mechanical keyboard that they truly loved. I can see where they are coming from, as someone who has developed a love for Mechs over the years if you dont like the gaming styling you really are limited to just a few keyboard. It gets even worse if you are like me and still like having backlighting. After working with WASD Keyboards on our Keyboard Customization article they offered to send over a Code keyboard to check out. I only had one problem, I couldnt decide if I wanted to check out another TKL that I love for test bench and LAN use or if I would look at the Code as a potential replacement for my main keyboard where I need a full number pad. Lucky for me they completely understood and sent over one of each, giving me a chance to check out both and to check out both of the keyswitch options."

ASUS X99-A Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Dec 19 2014 | 4:42P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel X99 chipset is the current flagship line from Intel, being that it is the flagship the components are typically more expensive. Today Legit Reviews has the opportunity to look at a top tier board that isn`t going to break the bank! The ASUS X99-A Intel X99 motherboard is currently going for only $246.99.

Asus Z97 Pro (Wi-Fi ac) Socket 1150 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Dec 19 2014 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that Intel's newest LGA 1150 motherboard chipset is out in full force, numerous enthusiast-class boards abound. We've already taken a look at five Z97 motherboards from Gigabyte, EVGA, and MSI, and this time around we're reviewing the Asus Z97-Pro (Wi-Fi ac). This board is one of Asus' mid-range offerings in the $200 price range and is interesting on the storage front as it includes both M.2 and SATA Express, so its as future proof as it gets when it comes to storage options--at least for today. This board also comes in a non-Wi-Fi version, dubbed simply "Pro," as well as versions that are more expensive and less expensive, but all share the same aesthetic and general feature set, so in a way this review is for several motherboards, not just one...
