 [LATEST]  Blackfire CLAMPLIGHT LED Flashlight Review @ TestFreaks
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 2:07P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I have something a bit different, a flashlight from a company called Blackfire. Normally we cover tech products, but we do cover everything really, but flashlights these days can be considered high tech when you really look at them with high intensity LEDs and futuristic designs. The flashlight I have today is called the Clamplight and it`s what I would call a utility light as as its name suggests, it has a clamp built-in so you can attach the light most anywhere to make sure you have light where you need it most. So read on to learn about a very versatile product..."

ADATA Premier Pro SP920 SSD (512GB) Review
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA has definitely proven that they are a force to be reckoned with so far this year. We first checked in with them at CES, where we got to see their newly coloured DRAM modules, wireless device charging technology, as well as their line up of new solid state drives. Shortly thereafter, ADATA released their SSD Toolbox software, which allows for you to monitor the health of your ADATA solid state drive. Today, ADATA goes one step further by releasing the ADATA Premier PRO SP920 SSD, and we have the opportunity to take an in-depth look at the 512GB model.

EVGA GeForce GTX 750 SC 1GB Graphics Card Review
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall there is nothing to dislike and everything to like when it comes to the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 SC. It is affordable, has solid performance, consumes very little power and the memory can be overclocked substantially, reducing the negative impact of the 128-bit bus. For the money this card is a real winner.

News: For Valve is the Steam controller both a blessing and a curse?
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 10:04A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Valve`s Steam controller looks great on paper. It promises not just greater accuracy than conventional console gamepads, but also support for point-and-click titles that traditionally required a mouse and keyboard. There`s a downside, though. As TR`s Cyril Kowaliski learned first-hand, the Steam controller has a pretty steep learning curvesteep enough, perhaps, to put off some potential converts."

KobraLan Extreme Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 9:55A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
KobraLan Extreme is the new mini-monster from KobraPC, which is based on an ITX formfactor with high-end components. The system is Haswell based with an Intel Core i7-4770K in order to pump out high frame rates there is a MSI GTX 780 Ti Gaming graphics card. In addition, the system is pretty clean inside but this build is certainly not cheap. If you`re curious to see what KobraPC has been building, have look at the following review."

NVIDIA Fermi/Kepler GPUs Are The Best Bet For Ubuntu 14.04 Nouveau
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 9:12A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In my testing of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with the Linux 3.13 kernel and Mesa 10.1 for the open-source graphics driver stack provided by Nouveau for NVIDIA GeForce graphics hardware, only the Fermi and Kepler GPUs are running reliably. While these newer NVIDIA GPUs are running stable with Ubuntu 14.04, the performance is still a wreck due to lack of reclocking."

OCZ Vertex 460 240GB Solid State Drive Review
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few months, OCZ have been in the limelight with the news of imminent bankruptcy and to be quite honest, for us reviewers and particularly those of use that review their products it has been very had to ignore the facts and what was going on. As a result I was very sceptical that I was going to get any more products from them and these were the last days of one of the best SSDs names out there. Fortunately though, help was on hand and following a buyout from Toshiba, OCZ are once again back in the game. With Indlinx controllers at their heart and now having Toshiba’s own NAND packages spread around, OCZ have now got a stable supply of components for their SSDs and with this set of critical changes taking place, there is no other way to display their come back but to release a new drive. Following in the footsteps of the Vertex 450, the Vertex 460 is home to the same Indlinx BareFoot 3 M10 controller, however on the NAND front the younger and fresher drive takes advantage of Toshiba’s 19nm MLC NAND packages and the resulting combination sees a drive that on paper looks quite promising. The rated performance figures put it up with some of the class leading drives, although it has been priced in the region of other mainstream drives. Whilst some people are sceptical that the buyout from Toshiba will help out OCZ in the longterm, OCZ are still going to run under their own name and the essence of OCZ’s previous products is still going to be there. I personally have high hopes for them and I look forward to seeing a number of class leading products roll off the production line in the near future. There is only one way to see how the rejuvenation process has gone and that is to put the drives to test and see what they are made of.

Samsung XP941 Native PCIe M.2 SSD (512GB) Review - 1GB/s Transfer Speeds Set The Bar
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 5:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we have previously mentioned in our review of the Plextor M6M solid state drive, it is important to remember that SSD`s can come in different shapes and sizes. Not all drives are going to be the 2.5 form factor and fit perfectly into your ultra book or desktop. We spoke briefly about the mSATA form factor and that you will find it most often in a laptop, but as laptops and ultra books become slimmer, the demand for smaller, yet faster, drives increases. Bring in the native PCIe M.2 form factor. The PCIe M.2 SSD eliminates the SATA 3 bottleneck, where with SATA 3 you can expect SSD speeds around 500 MB/s, but with PCIe you can expect speeds nearly double this. Incredible isn`t it? Imagine, 1GB/s and you are not even using a RAID 0 configuration; it really is astonishing. The Samsung XP941 PCIe M.2 SSD is one of, if not the fastest drive we have ever seen. Let`s take a closer look!"

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.
