Plextor M7V M.2 SATA SSD Review
     Fri, May 06 2016 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Flash based storage can really wake up an older PC due to it's massive increase in speed and decrease in seek time as compared it its rotating disk counter part. As the price of flash memory continues to drop, we start to see SSD's prices per gigabyte creep ever closer to mechanical hard drive's price per gigabyte. To further drive …

Corsair M65 PRO RGB Review
     Fri, May 06 2016 | 4:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The M65 PRO RGB is now kitted out with a new Pixart PMW336x optical sensor (similar to the 3366 in the Logitech G900?), the same found in the Scimitar mouse. It has a resolution of up to 12,000 DPI and so we can expect a responsive, zero acceleration performance for increased precision. There is another change any Corsair fanboy would welcome. That is the return of the iconic Sails logo, replacing the fancy crossed cutlass design seen in our previous outing. ARRR! The logo forms one of three customisable lighting zones, with the forward projecting light and the profile/DPI lighting making up the other two zones.

AZIO MGK 1 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
     Fri, May 06 2016 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While it’s certainly true that there are those that could care less what input devices they use with their computer they must be the minority with all the options we have available to us. Your input device, your mouse and keyboard, are like your virtual hands that allow you to manipulate the pixels displayed before you and bend them to your will. For this reason the look, feel, and feedback of these devices is very important to us. When it comes to keyboards specifically, each of us has a different physiology and needs. However there are certainly a couple of features that set one keyboard apart from another regardless of personal opinion. It’s no secret that the mechanical keyboard is often the most sought after type of deck thanks to it’s snappy response and luscious actuation. Today we’ll be taking a look at one specific mechanical keyboard, the AZIO MGK 1 RGB. This fully backlit board has RGB LED lighting and of course, those awesome mechanical switches. Follow along as we go through the board and evaluate its potential strengths and weakness’."

After years of prototypes and last year’s first stab, the Samsung and Oculus partnership has produced the first-ever consumer-ready version of the Gear VR headset.

ROCCAT KIRO Gaming Mouse
     Thu, May 05 2016 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”In the end, the mouse is a great ambidextrous mouse! However, I don't know many people who swap between left and right handed to play or work. If you do, great, this mouse is truly for you. For the rest of us, unfortunately, you're going to be left with extra pieces that you'll never use, buttons you've paid for and won't use, and a slightly empty feeling for your dominant hand. I see how the product is great for the market from the perspective of ROCCAT. It is a mouse that sells to both handed people. Seems like a win versus paying for additional molds for specific right or left handed shapes. I understand that. I just don't prefer it. I feel like I could save my pennies by not purchasing the extra stuff I won't/can't use. However, that part aside the mouse is a functional experience that isn't bad. The mouse is a pretty good mouse. The quality is sound (although I'm disappointed the cable isn't braided), there is lighting options to match my themes, and I get my forward/back buttons for email and melee smashing. This mouse definitely stands out from the normal "mouse" today, since more and more they are just slight variations. Unfortunately, I don't think what makes it stand out (the ambidextrous features) makes me want it any more than any other mouse. It does have a great price point -- so it's really hard to argue this mouse as much less than good!”

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.
