REVIEW: AMD A8-3870K @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Jan 23 2012 | 9:38A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have our hands on AMD`s improved A-Series APU named the A8-3870K, which comes with an improved on-die GPU and an unlocked multiplier that should overclock even better. Hopefully these improvements will provide improved performance for the enthusiast looking to save some money."

Epson LabelWorks LW-400 Label Printer Review @ TechwareLabs
     Mon, Jan 23 2012 | 9:33A | Printers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you have ever worked in an office or professional environment of any kind, then the likelihood is that you have used a label maker. These small devices help keep things organized and easy to find. They are essentially small printers designed to put text on a sticky tape meant for folders, but they can do much more as the Epson LW-400 will show us."

2012 - Not a blue year for Blu-ray
     Mon, Jan 23 2012 | 9:14A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Disney plan to fill out the gaps in the classic animation collection with confirmed February releases of Lady and the Tramp Pocahontas, late 2012 release of Cinderella, but releases of Robin Hood, Tarzan and possibly The Hunchback of Notre Dame are all widely tipped. Sony`s multi-year restoration of Lawrence of Arabia is finally set for a mid-year release, and their much delayed release of Bad Boys 2 will finally see the light of day. Monty Python and The Holy Grail will return in a 35th anniversary set mid year. Fox will release one of the final entries in the classic Rogers and Hammerstein collection The King and I later in the year. Panasonic`s timed exclusitivity for the 3D Blu-ray release of Avatar expires in February, so a wide retail release can be expected along with a new transfer of The Terminator which will likely take centre stage to a special edition Blu-ray re-release, along with first time releases of True Lies and The Abyss. Hitchc ock`s Dial M For Murder will likely see a 2D and 3D release midyear from Warner, and Universal will unleash The Birds around the same time. To coincide with the theatrical release of the latest James Bond title Skyfall in November, now that MGM`s financial woes are over, look for all of the outstanding James Bond titles including my personal favourite GoldenEye, along with Tomorrow Never Dies, You Only Live Twice, Diamonds Are Forever, On Her Majesty`s Secret Service, The Spy Who Loved Me, Octopussy and the truly awful A View To A Kill."

MSI Interceptor Series Nighthawk ATX Mid Tower Case @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Jan 23 2012 | 9:07A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems everyone is putting out PC cases, I didn?t know MSI was until this one arrived for my review, in fact it?s not even listed on their website yet, but I have it and it?s not bad. Today for review I have the Interceptor Series Nighthawk ATX Mid Tower PC case from MSI. The case is a bit small, but it still has plenty of room for even the largest of video cards along with room for several hard drives and more. The case features tool-less installation, three fans pre-installed including a 200mm sized one on the side. The Nighthawk also with a built-in card reader, that reads pretty much everything, to make your life a bit easier. "

Pivos AIOS HD Media Player Review @MissingRemote
     Sun, Jan 22 2012 | 11:59A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have reviewed a number of media players in the past, from the Boxee Box to the Dune HD Smart H1 unit. The decision on which player is right for your home is never simple, given the wide array of options available to consumers and depending on their price points and needs. We hope our Media Player Comparison Guide has helped in the past and today the Pivos AIOS HD Media Center is up for an in-depth review to see how it performs. The AIOS HD Media Center is the new-found company?s only product offering, and like others, it aims to replace your need for a full, home theater PC (HTPC) with its affordable, smaller package. *"

Thecus N5500 5 Bay NAS Server Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Jan 22 2012 | 11:31A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The last Thecus NAS I reviewed was the N4100Pro back in January of 2009. Since then Thecus has come a LONG way on their NAS interface. The Thecus N5500 layout is nicely laid out and very intuitive. The configuration of the unit from first discovery to formatting the RAID was less than 15 minutes"

Android App Pick - Origami Tutorial - BCCHardware

Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up our much-delayed 14th App Pick of the Week and this time it blends a gaming app with a creative app.  We picked the Origami Tutorial App as our pick of the week and explore paper folding on an Android device.  It may seem a bit odd at first, but it`s a great way to learn a new skill that you can use on analog paper."

Enermax Aurora Lite Wireless Keyboard Review
     Sun, Jan 22 2012 | 9:33A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the lack of rechargeable batteries as its only real drawback the latest Aurora Lite Wireless Keyboard by Enermax is not only one of the most elegant and high quality keyboards we`ve ever seen, largely thanks to its brushed aluminum body and scissor keys but it also features a very good wireless range which makes it ideal for people who don`t really like having many cables around."

SilverStone from the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show
     Sun, Jan 22 2012 | 9:01A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“We headed over to the LVH (Las Vegas Hilton) for our meeting with enthusiast case manufacturer SilverStone where we stumbled upon perhaps the most interesting chassis of the week. Their new Mini-ITX FT03-Mini is nearly identical externally to the original FT03 except that it supports a smaller form factor and the optical drive is mounted vertically which looks a bit odd on the silver version. The SilverStone rep described it as the SG05 turned vertically which we can totally relate to.”

Intel X79 Motherboard Roundup
     Sat, Jan 21 2012 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those wanting to build the ultimate performance system will naturally turn to Intel’s new LGA2011 platform which recently made its debut with the Sandy Bridge-E processors. This highly refined architecture takes the original Sandy Bridge design and pumps it full of steroids, while adding a few new things. Moreover, the platform is expected to support enthusiast-level Ivy Bridge processors that are slated for release by the end of 2012, adding to the platform's longevity.

So if you're already spending $600+ on a processor alone, you'll want to make sure your motherboard is equally impressive. Today we are checking out five high-end X79 motherboards from Asus, Asrock, ECS, Intel and MSI.

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.
