AASUS P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt Preview @ Ocaholic
     Tue, Feb 05 2013 | 9:23A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt, ASUS has a motherboard in its portfolio, which - like the name already suggests - features a Thunderbolt interface. Furthermore this board has been equipped with plenty of video-outputs, therefore is seems to be perfectly suitable for a multimedia PC. On the following pages we will have a closer look at the layout and design aspects of this board."

Poetic Atmosphere Nexus 4 @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Feb 05 2013 | 9:14A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently I took a look at the Poetic Borderline Bumper for the Nexus 4, I was impressed with some of its features and found it to be an amazing value when compared to the LG/Google official bumper. Of course it wasnt perfect, and I didnt feel like it would do much to protect my easily damaged Nexus 4. So I was excited just a few days later to get in the second Poetic case that I had ordered, this time around a full case, not a bumper. Today Im going to talk about my experience with the Poetic Atmosphere for the Nexus 4 and put it to the test against two bumpers and one other case to see what is the best case for your new Google Experience phone. My Atmosphere came in just in time for CES, perfect timing and a great way to put the case to the test."

GIGABYTE Aivia Osmium Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Feb 05 2013 | 9:02A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enter the Aivia branding, now dedicated to the more discerning consumer and featuring both high-end gaming keyboards and mice. It has been 14 months since our review of the Aivia M8600 wireless mouse, and since then GIGABYTE have updated their premium line with the Aivia Krypton Mouse and Osmium Mechanical Keyboard. We`ll be taking a look at the Krypton very soon, but first up is the Osmium."

MyDigitalSSD BP4 mSATA SSD Review (240GB)
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Perhaps one of the hottest tech items to hit in the last year is the ultrabook, a laptop typically measuring under 1/2? thick, weighing less than 3 lbs, having performance as high as 1GB/s transfer speeds and being capable of up to ten hours battery life. As new and amazing as the ultra is, the consumer also learned of the solid state drive and, more specifically, the mSATA SSD measuring 1/3 the size of a credit card, just over 3mm thick and weighing just under 7gm. As with any other new technology, such things as storage capacity are considered premium and, even now, we are seeing systems sell for as much as $500-$750 more, simply the result of a storage upgrade from 120 to 240GB. The smart consumer is one who buys the lower capacity system with full intent of upgrading the SSD themselves and, in doing so, saves themselves hundreds of dollars.

Sound Judgment: Five Gaming Headphones Tested
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What separates a premium headset from a blue light special? It's a combination of things, from well designed drivers to comfy ear cups that kiss the sides of your head with a gentle yet firm caress (we're being melodramatic...a little). And then there's the overall feature-set and premium extras like a noise-cancelling microphone and 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound. Unfortunately, there's only so much you can discern from a headset's spec sheet, and with so many to choose from, you'd have to invest an obscene amount of time and money auditioning each one. We don't want you to have to do that, so we went and rounded up five high-end headsets from four different manufacturers, including Corsair, Creative Labs, Roccat and Rosewill and the goods posted on the following pages...

Rosewill Tachyon 650W Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The overall performance of the Tachyon 650W power supply is very good. We could even dare saying that it was much better than we initially expected, considering that Rosewill is an infant when it comes to high performance products aiming towards hardcore enthusiasts. Nevertheless, the Tachyon 650W unit displayed excellent electrical performance, maintaining a tight voltage regulation and offering very good ripple suppression. Furthermore, the efficiency of the Tachyon 650W does meet the 80Plus Platinum certification levels just like Rosewill advertises, even if only barely..."

Samsung DA-E750 Wireless Audio Dock - BCCHardware
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the end I was quite impressed with the Samsung DA-E750 Wireless Audio Dock. The fact that it can connect to and dock with so many different devices - including Apple devices via the 30-pin dock connector and Android devices via the MicroUSB connector is pretty awesome. If you don`t have either of these, you`re still in luck because it supports IP streaming from a Windows PC over Ethernet or WiFi as well as Bluetooth, AllShare Play, 1/8 Audio input and more. . ."

SilverStone PP06B Individual-Sleeved PSU Cables Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If this last route seems the best avenue for you and if you already own a SilverStone power supply that was manufacturer after 2009, they have some for you to look at. SilverStone has gone the route similar to Corsair and is offering sleeved cables. For a few weeks only black were available but red and white have recently showed up on their site. So, it is some to clean of the interior of one of our test rigs."

SilverStone Strider Plus ST60F-PS 600 W @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone has a rich portfolio of PSU products, which became even richer with the addition of the Strider Plus 600 W unit: one of the shortest ATX PSUs available on the market. This one exploits a fully modular design, which greatly simplifies the installation process, something many users will appreciate."

ASUS Maximus V Gene Motherboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 3:29P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUSs Republic of Gamers (ROG) products cater to gamers and hardware enthusiasts. Many of these same people attend LAN parties. No want wants to lug a huge system to a LAN party, it just is not fun. That is one of the reasons why ASUS has a Gene line of motherboards. These are micro ATX boards that are perfect for building a great LAN or small for factor system. Many people think micro ATX boards lack many features that normal ATX boards have, but the board we are taking a look at today is a ROG board. The ASUS Maximus V Gene features an all digital power delivery design in their Extreme Engine Digi+ II, a mPCIe combo card so you can add an mSATA SSD or a mPCIe card of your choice, ASUSs own 8-channel Supreme FX III sound solution, CrossFireX and SLI support, and native PCIe 3.0 and USB 3.0. That is just the tip of the iceberg there are so many features in this board you wont believe it is only a micro ATX board! Read on as we take a look..."

The HP Spectre XT TouchSmart Ultrabook 15t-4000, besides having a long name, has a sleek design, a comfortable keyboard and a Thunderbolt peripheral port. It also has speedy performance thanks to its Intel Core i7 CPU and 8GB of RAM, but battery life is lacking."

Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB Solid State Drive Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 12:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB solid state drive covered in this review has a respectable capacity of 120GB. Although marketed as a notebook bundle kit, this SSD will perform just the same in either a desktop or notebook environment. Overall, the V300 exceeded its advertised compressible sequential read and write rating of 450MB/s."

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.
