     Sun, Mar 18 2012 | 9:33A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 OC Edition is meant to hit that sweet spot a little harder.

Scosche reVOLT c2 Dual USB Car Charger Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Mar 18 2012 | 9:33A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Scosche reVolt c2 solves the problem of how to charge more than one power hungry USB device at a time from a single 12V accessory power socket. This is an increasing problem and the reVolt c2 is the quick and easy solution that won`t break the bank. The Scosche reVolt c2 comes backed by a one year warranty and is available online for $14.99 plus $0.99 shipping. You can find cheaper dual USB car chargers on the market, but they aren`t this small and currently don`t have dual 2.1 Amp USB ports..."

Maingear SHIFT Super Stock X79 System Review
     Sun, Mar 18 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of Merriam-Webster's definitions for the word obscene is "so excessive as to be offensive." By that definition, Maingear sent us an obscenely spec'd SHIFT Super Stock X79 system packed to the hilt with so much decadent hardware that even the one percenters would feel guilty owning it, right up until the moment they pushed the power button and remembered exactly why it's so fun to be filthy rich. As configured, this thing costs $7,570, and that's after deducting $100 as part of Maingear's 'Spring Savings' promotion and before tacking on another $100 or so for shipping. It's not a configuration most of us will ever own -- it's more than half the price of a 5-door Kia Rio, for crying out loud -- but damn, it sure is fun to window shop, isn't it?

Lenovo IdeaPad U300s Ultrabook Review
     Sun, Mar 18 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Dell's XPS 13 and the Asus UX21 that we tested recently, we felt you definitely get what you pay for, but we all know the up-sell to an ultrabook, versus a standard 13 or 12-inch notebook, would be a lot easier if we could get closer to that $800 mark. The Lenovo IdeaPad U300s that we'll be looking at today doesn't get us any closer to clearing that magic $799 psychological MSRP hurdle, but like its brethren that we've put through their paces thus far, this ultrabook is a premium product through and through...

BIOS Option Of The Week
     Sun, Mar 18 2012 | 2:20A | 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.

Samsung MV800 MultiView Digital Camera
     Sun, Mar 18 2012 | 2:20A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"You've probably been there before - out with a couple friends and you want to grab a quick picture together for the scrapbook but all you have is a handheld camera and nobody around to press the shutter for you. You can do the whole arm-out-in-the-air self portrait thing, but that could take quite a few tries before you're all framed up just the way you'd like. You could use a self timer, but the same framing issue may plague your first few photos. What you cry for is a camera with a nice big screen on the front - something you can use to line up self photos and to gather around just perfectly in front of before your timer shots snap themselves. Answering your cry is Samsung with the latest MV800 MultiView compact camera."

Gigabyte X79-UD3 Motherboard
     Sun, Mar 18 2012 | 2:20A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we will be looking at an X79 motherboard from Gigabyte, the GA-X79-UD3. The UD3 represents Gigabyte's entry level model on the X79 platform but if processor price didn't already tip you off, LGA 2011 is an all-around expensive platform. For example, pricing on this entry-level board starts around $250 - more along the lines of what you'd expect to pay for a premium P67 board.”

OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240GB SSD Review @ circuitREMIX
     Sat, Mar 17 2012 | 6:43P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our last SSD roundup, we took a look at a variety of drives with different controllers and NAND configurations. We found that those two factors make up a big part in dictating how a drive will perform. The drive that we`re reviewing today, OCZ`s 240GB Vertex 3 Max IOPS SSD, has a controller and NAND configuration that we haven`t examined before, so it will be interesting to see how it compares. Positioned up-market compared to the Vertex 3 that was awarded our Editor`s Choice award in our SSD Roundup, we`ll see what the Max IOPS variant brings to the table."

Kingston SSDNow V+200 120GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews

Posted by: STAFF
Kingston has introduced their SSDNow V+200 line that`s specifically marketed to enterprise/business customers for consistent, reliable performance. In fact, the referred to the drive as the everyday business SSD and they also offer their KC100 line of enterprise SSDs. After all, few business users are concerned with monster performance numbers but rather cost and reliability instead. We`ll be having a look at the 120GB version of this SF-2281 based drive today..."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
