The PowerColor HD 7850 PCS+ is designed to perform 15% quieter and cooler than reference cards, all while sporting higher clock speeds out of the box. It commands a mere $10 premium over reference cards to boot, potentially making it a very attractive option at the $259 USD price point.

Thecus N4100EVO review: four bays for a good price
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 12:02P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have recently reviewed a lot of NAS devices, and now it's Thecus's turn. Their new N4100EVO is a relatively affordable and very comprehensive NAS for its £240 price tag. Despite its relatively low price, this is a model that is pretty fully-featured. The compact little box has a door on the front, behind which the four hard drive trays are located. The trays are equipped with individual locks. On the front you will find an on/off switch, a USB connection and a display. The latter is a very practical feature to have, since it lets you see what the IP address is for example without having to use a computer. The performance and the noise production however are disappointing.

Android vs. Windows Phone: The Case For Conversion
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To date, we haven't heard a lot about Android 5.0 in terms of features, but Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) has had a lot of time to mature. Particularly on the Galaxy Nexus, the pure version of ICS is one of the most fluid, visually appealing mobile OSes -- but is it still the best alternative for those who are shying away from the iPhone for one reason or another? We ask the question because of Windows Phone's recent successes, however mild they may be. Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) feels like a completely overhauled version of the original WP7 build that shipped with phones like the HD7, Omnia 7 and Samsung Focus. Originally, it felt as if Windows Phone 7 was forced out just in time for the holiday season, but the latest version is a significantly better option..

REVIEW: HIS 7850 IceQ X Turbo @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 10:58A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Pitcairn is the codename for this class of AMD`s graphics card lineup, and it brings the Radeon 7850 and 7850. Today we`re interested in the former, and specifically we`re examining the HIS 7850 IceQ X Turbo. It comes with core speeds of a GHz, and also comes with a customized air cooler to tame the temperatures that often come with higher speeds. We`ve seen some great value from HIS recently, so let`s see if the 7850 IceQ X Turbo can continue that trend."

GIGABYTE X79-UD3 Motherboard Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 9:04A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we will see with the X79-UD3, the same `bang-per-buck` ethos applies to today`s review sample. With top end motherboards rapidly approaching the 500 mark and mid-range boards well in excess of 200 it is great to see GIGABYTE have kept the price below that threshold with the UD3 weighing in at a very reasonable 175, one of the cheapest X79 motherboard available to date. Hopefully GIGABYTE have not trimmed too much fat to achieve this price."

We were handed 16GB of DDR3 1866 in four sticks. This kit is geared towards the motherboards featuring the Intel X79 chipset but can be used in many others."

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.
