Tt eSports Chao Dracco Review - XSReviews
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 3:43P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Chao Dracco headset is all about Culture, fashion and technology. Whether you`re a Hippie, Punk, Gothic, Hip or Drunk, you are Chao. The Chao headset is a lifestyle, an ideology that inherits the totem of Tt eSports, the Battle dragon, this symbolizes Strength, courage and makes a cultural statement. From TT eSports. XSR translated: The headset is coloured in very bright and flashy colours, great if you`re into that kind of thing. The downside is it looks kind of like you`re wearing a child`s play toy. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Review: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 2x4GB DDR3-1600MHz CL8 @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 11:55A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not that long ago, we reviewed a trio of Crucials fresh DDR3-1866 memory kits and established that all of them share the same, highly overclockable Micron ICs. This got us thinking whether it is possible to have a similar experience using any of the lower-rated Ballistix models as well."

Icy Dock Convenient SSD/HDD Conversion Kits @ Pro-Clockers
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 11:52A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Icy Dock is a leader when it comes to making anything that has to do with hard drive mounting and HDD enclosures. The few products we have seen from them have been of the best quality and pretty simple when it came time to actually use them. We don`t believe these new products will be any different. "

Silverstone AP Series Air Penetrator Case Fan Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 11:48A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
/ /Silverstone AP Series (Air Penetrator) fans do exactly what the name implies. Silverstone AP Series fans use air channeling design to direct the flow of air in a cylindrical pattern, making for far more efficient use of the fan`s airflow. With this air channeling, Silverstone AP Series fans can be aimed directly at the area requiring air and cooling more effectively while still keeping fan noise at a minimum. The lineup features the AP121/121L 120mm, AP141 140mm, AP181 180mm and the monster AP182 2000rpm 170cfm 180mm. The AP121L adds LED to the AP121, and is available in red, green, blue and white for those looking to add a little bling to their build in a 1500rpm fan. The AP121 and 141 include three speed cable for 700~1500rpm operation and feature fluid dynamic bearings. ///"

Plextor M5 Pro SSD Review - XSReviews
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 11:44A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was less than two weeks ago that our review of the Plextor M3 Pro was published, and already we have in our hands its successor, the Plextor M5 Pro. This new solid state drive comes packing Marvell`s latest 88SS9187 controller and Toshiba`s 19 nm NAND -- both of which are firsts. With new controllers and memory comes the potential for incredible performance, but also the potential for new problems. Have Plextor rushed the M5 Pro to market or is this an SSD on the bleeding edge? Let`s find out! A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Sony Alpha 57 (SLT-A57) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 10:39A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sony Alpha 57 is one of four APS-C D-SLR cameras in Sony`s current lineup. It`s one step up from the entry-level Alpha 37, and like its siblings sports a fixed mirror design and an electronic viewfinder, a departure from classic SLR cameras that use a moving mirror and optical viewfinder for through-the-lens viewing."

Gigabyte GP-Krypton MAT Two-sided Gaming Mouse Pad Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 9:34A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte GP-Krypton mouse mat did exactly what it was designed to do, and that is to provide us a viable mousing surface. The Krypton mouse mat does give us other attributes besides a mousing surface; it is easily cleanable, at the same time it is very comfortable..."

Kingston HyperX T1 2x4GB DDR3-2400MHz CL11 @ ocaholic
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 9:30A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Before Ivy Bridge processors have hit the shelves, DDR3-2400 rated memory was an option only for a small bunch of enthusiasts who could afford and knew hot to put it to a good use. Now though, such clocks became accessible to a broader audience that even brands as sensible as Kingston have such products to offer."

Antec TrueQuiet Pro 120 Review @ Vortez
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 9:23A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec has released a revolutionary cylindrical turbine fan blade design, a new seven-bladed fan they call the TrueQuietT Pro 120. This is aimed at being the quietest fan you have ever used. The design follows the TrueQuietT fans in showing off an elegant curved frame. But then there is that revolutionary ring rim attached to the tips of the fan`s blades. How well does it cool? Is it truly quiet?"

[Review] TP Link Wireless N (150) NANO Router (and then some?) @ Techreaction.net
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 9:20A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TL-WR702N (Wireless N150 NANO Router) presents itself in five ways; a wireless access point that simply plugs plugs into your wired router and gives you wireless access, a wireless router that can be connected to your cable/DSL modem giving you wireless internet access and advanced client to client functionality between multiple devices, a network bridge, a network client and a wireless network repeater. Can the No. 1 rated WLAN and Broadband CPE Provider (2011) deliver big performance in this tiny package? We will find out. What we will look for are deficiencies in signal, multiple device capability and mixed load handling with multiple devices when compared to full size routers. Furthermore -we will also move to outdoor testing that will be focused on; finding maximum effective range, functionality at extreme range limits (beyond effective range) and HD streaming ability at maximum effective range. We feel that this type of testing prevents us from getting hung up on any one feature that is outstanding causing us to neglect the little things that may be important to our readers. We will focus on repeater and router modes for this testing as this will give us a feel for the device in all available working modes."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - Graphic Win Size
     Sat, Sep 08 2012 | 4:10P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *Graphic Win Size *setting."

     Sat, Sep 08 2012 | 4:03P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Android Tablet Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Clearly the success of the Galaxy Note as a brand inspired Samsung and despite having a well-established Tab range (of Android Tablets) their latest device goes with the alternative title which helps identify its key feature, a high functionality stylus. Today we have the Galaxy Note 10.1 on our test bench and will establish whether it has what it takes to compete with the likes of ASUS Transformer Pad, the alternative productivity tablet."
