ASUS S56C 15.6-inch Ultrabook Review @ Techgage
     Sun, Mar 03 2013 | 10:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Ultrabook term is often associated with super-small notebooks, but ASUS is here with a model to remind us that 15.6-inch models can be included, too. Were taking a look at the S56C, a Core i5-3317U-powered offering that includes 6GB of memory, a 24GB SSD for caching, and is built like a tank."

Fractal Design Node 304 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Mar 03 2013 | 9:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being in the LAN scene, mobility is something that is important to most of us. The solution for some is a laptop, for others it is a sling for their tower and dealing with the grunt work that goes into lugging around an entire system. More and more however folks are turning to smaller form factor motherboards that will fit into LAN boxes. Fractal has sent over one of their Mini ITX cases that can perform as a LAN boxe, the Node 304. Lets take a look and see how it stacks up against the competition."

Gunblitz @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Mar 03 2013 | 9:23A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I will admit that when Wes first told me I would be reviewing Gunblitz I was nervous. This is because I dont consider 2D shooters to be one of my favorite genres. This is because I tend to get frustrated and rage at games very easily. I cannot tell you how many controllers I destroyed trying to beat a high score on Geometry Wars Evolved! I am excited to do this review though, because not only is it a game developed by Rapture Studios, a place we recently toured and reviewed here but also because it will be a nice relaxing way to get back into the genre. Let us take a look at Gunblitz, and hope that I dont break any keyboards in the process."

Lenovo IdeaPad S400 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, Mar 02 2013 | 3:13P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lenovo IdeaPad S400 is a bargain-priced Windows 8 Ultrabook that offers solid performance and an attractive design. While it does lack battery life and display viewing angles, it does have a very comfortable keyboard."

Shuttle Barebone DS61 Review @ Madshrimps
     Sat, Mar 02 2013 | 2:05P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DS61 is a nice little barebone from Shuttle, which supports both Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge CPUs and besides the CPU, it only needs some RAM (SODIMM) and a storage drive (HDD/S)..."

MSI R7970 Lightning Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Mar 02 2013 | 1:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Released 3 months after the reference HD7970, the MSI R7970 Lightning is touted as the cream of the crop, the headline act with a huge factory overclock of 1070MHz on the core and 1400MHz for the memory. Bearing in mind that the reference HD7970 had a 925/1375MHz on the core and memory respectively you can`t be anything but impressed with MSI`s overclock."

[DreamWare Computers] Samsung Galaxy Note II
     Sat, Mar 02 2013 | 10:48A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About a year after the release of the original Note, Samsung brought the Note II to the table. Built upon a similar architecture and design of the wildly successful Galaxy S III, the Note II also brought several software and design improvements over the original Note. I happen to have a Note II here today and look forward to putting it up against the original Note, my Galaxy S III and some other competition!"

GeForce GTX Titan Preview @ Rage3D.com
     Sat, Mar 02 2013 | 10:35A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX Titan is almost upon us, the first details of the only card to crush Crysis 3 at max settings appear as NVIDIA draws the line in the sand for single GPU performance."

Audyssey Wireless Speakers Review
     Sat, Mar 02 2013 | 10:20A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I remember a time when we all went out occasionally to see all the latest complete stereo systems launched from all the leading manufacturers like SONY, Philips, Pioneer, Panasonic, AIWA, Technics and Yamaha only to find out in the end that we couldn`t really afford to get the highest end models featuring 10 CD disc changers (or more), mini discs and plenty of bells and whistles which of course were not available on the cheapest models. Times have changed however and so nowadays most people prefer to use their computer systems, media stations and smartphones to listen to their favorite music while at the comfort of their home and so the only real issue is finding a quality speaker set capable of fulfilling that task with ease. Well the latest Wireless Speakers by our friends over at Audyssey just might be the right ones for the job."

AMD EyeFinity - Issues with Triple-Screen setups and 120Hz Refresh Rates
     Sat, Mar 02 2013 | 10:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s EyeFinity technology has been out for a while, but trying to hook up 120Hz monitors on non-DisplayPort-capable screens proves to be a headache."

Fractal Design Define R4 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Mar 02 2013 | 9:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to cases there are two different types. The first is the flashy cases that are meant to grab everyones attention and show off all the cool hardware inside. The second is the sleek professional looking case that is all about style and function. When it comes to Fractal Design I always seem to place them in this second category. They dont make anything flashy or over the top, but their cases are always functional, cool, spacious, and what I like to call business sexy. Their Define cases have always been a perfect example of this, today we are going to take a look at the Define R4, their lastest version."

GIGABYTE Aivia Krypton Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Mar 02 2013 | 9:23A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hot on the heels of our review of the new Osmium mechanical keyboard we present to you the GIGABYTE Aivia Krypton Gaming Mouse and Krypton Dual-sided Mousemat. Designed very much for gamers, and utilising the same GHOST macro software as the Osmium mechanical keyboard, the Krypton changes up surfaces to extend choice for gamers compared to their previous market offerings."

BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z77X (Intel Z77) Motherboard Review

Posted by: STAFF

Canon PIxma MG6320 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, Mar 02 2013 | 8:43A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Canon Pixma MG6320 is a photo-centered all-in-one printer that does a good job at printing color photos and scanning them too. It is simple to setup and has a forward-thinking design, but it does have costly ink cartridges and slow print speeds."
