     Thu, Dec 26 2013 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their new G Series products LG is pushing hard on the markets. The Korean company has come up with a brand new series of products, where there are smartphones as well as tablets. Back in 2011 LG released the Optimus Pad, which struggled and since then nothing much was going on. With the G Pad the company releases a high quality product, which can be found in the 300 Euro price range.

ech G930 Wireless Headset @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Dec 26 2013 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have gone through a whole collection of headsets in the past due to a cable going bad. This happens when you run over the wire with your chair when the wire is too long or when the cord is to short and you get hard tugs on it. Because of that I have been a big fan of wireless headsets, especially because latency is less of an issue with them. Well today I’m going to take a look at Logitech’s G930 wireless headset. I’m especially interested in how it compares to the Corsair Vengeance 2000, another popular wireless headset in the same price range. If the last two wireless mice from Logitech are indication, the G930 could be a good option. But let’s look closer before making any judgment.

Cougar MX500 Mid-Tower Case Review @HiTech Legion
     Thu, Dec 26 2013 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cougar`s MX500 is a Mid-Tower case with a sleek and modern style that`s aimed at gamers. The MX500 measures in at 8.3 inches wide, by 18.7 inches tall and 18.9 inches deep. It will hold seven HDDs and a 300mm video card, or you can adjust the top HDD cage to fit three SSDs and a 330mm long video card, or ditch it all together for a massive 410mm of GPU clearance. The motherboard tray has a cutout for after-market CPU coolers and rounded cutouts to pass through cables behind the tray."

Apple iPad mini with Retina Display Review
     Thu, Dec 26 2013 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
...Eventually, Apple caved to the demands of the market, and perhaps demands from within its own mothership, as it revealed the iPad mini. In typical Apple fashion, the original mini was priced higher than other 7" slates in the market, with the company all but conceding the sub-$300 tablet market, while plenty of others fought it out at the bottom end of the price scale. A year later, the next iteration of the iPad mini has been unwrapped, but it's not your average revamp. Apple claimed that the first iPad mini was "every inch an iPad," but many argued that the lackluster specifications, omission of a Retina display, and the lofty price tag left a lot to be desired. The iPad mini with Retina display, however, makes good on that claim in many ways. Still, is the ability to tap into the thriving iOS ecosystem, coupled with a 64-bit processor and a pixel-packed display, enough to justify the price tag? Find out in the pages ahead...

In Win 904 Mid-Tower Case Review @HiTech Legion
     Thu, Dec 26 2013 | 8:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 904 from In Win is a case that looks amazing and is designed to perform also. The 904 is pretty unique with a solid aluminum (T4.0/2.0mm) main shell and two thick panes of tempered safety glass for either side. It comes with hot swappable drive bays that already have some cable management built into the case. There is 3 x 3.5 drive bays (the swappable ones) and two other places for 2.5 drives. The positioning is unique in that the 3.5 bays are in the top right corner and turned vertically. The 2.5 drives are mounted on the inside front of the case. The single optical drive is in an odd position, tucked away underneath the PSU, kind of in the middle bottom of the case. The 904 is built for AiO water cooling, which is designed to mount externally on the back of the case. /"

Thermaltake Ttesports MEKA G1 Illuminated Keyboard Review @ TechwareLabs.com
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 7:21P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The keyboard. This peripheral can be one of the most overlooked and undervalued parts of any gamers rig. There are so many keyboard manufacturers out there, that there is a venerable cornucopia of keyboard options available to consumers today. In an attempt to win the consumer over there competitors iteration of the gaming keyboard, they have become more functional and fashionable. Unfortunately, as we have seen to many times here at TechwareLabs, fashion and function dont always mix. The trend of sleek and stylish hit the keyboard market some time ago, and the market was flooded with membrane or chiclet style keyboards that looked great, but as time passed, failed to hold up to the heavy use and performance scrutiny of serious gamers. So, were seeing a reemergence of old style mechanical keyboards in the gaming keyboard market."

Mushkin 240GB Chronos Go Deluxe Review
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 4:22P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Equipped with 256GB of toggle-mode NAND flash managed by an LSI Sandforce 2281 controller, the Chronos Go Deluxe delivers excellent performance across the test spectrum. Rated to deliver read/write speeds of up to 560MB/sec read and 520MB/sec write, the drive meets or exceeds these performance parameters. Performance degradation over time should prove minimal with the drive supporting the TRIM command, if the operating system supports it, and 16GB of over-provisioning that reduces the capacity of the drive to 240GB; a common practice with SandForce controlled drives. Delivered with an MTBF rating of 2 million hours, or just over 228 years, you can reasonably expect the Chronos Go Deluxe to last well past the three-year warranty period. Outside of the pricing, I can say this drive performed up to expectations delivering its rated performance and then some more!"

Patriot FUEL+ 7800mAh Mobile Rechargeable Battery
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 4:22P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Portable batteries used to recharge your portable devices, tablets and smartphones have been around for quite some time now but even so i don`t really see that many people using them when Im on the road. Personally i use 3 portable batteries daily not only because i don`t like having to remember to bring the same one along with me every time i go out (eventually i will forget) but also because one would need to be recharged three times as much so i have one placed behind the seat of my car, another in my backpack and a third one (the smallest of the three) in my shoulder wallet/bag. On the other hand out of all the people i know just 3 own portable batteries and only 1 of them actually carries it around with him in case of an emergency. Todays review is about one such portable battery and more specifically the latest PowerBank released by Patriot the FUEL+ 7800mAh."

Pittasoft BlackVue DR550GW-2CH Car Dashcam
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 4:22P | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Have any of you ever wondered what kind of mini cams are used in all those car accident video clips uploaded in YouTube? Well i don`t know whether or not people use such devices in your countries but they certainly don`t in mine (at least not up until this day) so i took it upon myself to find as much as i could for the so called car dashboard cameras. You see i have been watching such clips for many years now (especially ones with accidents caused by extreme weather conditions) but it never occurred to me that there are many companies out there that only focus in the design, development and manufacture of such dashboard cameras. One of those companies and perhaps the most well-known in the market is Pittasoft and today we will be taking a look at their latest BlackVue DR550GW-2CH dual-cam Wi-Fi compatible model. "
