Silverstone GD06 HTPC chassis review
     Sat, Feb 11 2012 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the SilverStone GD06 HTPC chassis, aimed at the home theater DIY audience that has a need for stylish looks, good functionality versus a competitive price. We simply grab a A75 motherboard from MSI, pop on a A8-3800 APU from AMD, and start building a fully functional HTPC. With properly selected components you are looking at a 300 maybe 400 EUR budget, still quite a bit of money I know. But you'll notice you can build a relatively small HTPC that looks and performs amazingly cool.

Samsung ML-3310ND
     Sat, Feb 11 2012 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Simple to use and maintain over a network, the Samsung ML-3310ND is a solid workhorse for an office printing up to 50,000 black-and-white pages per month. If you’re a small business looking for a no-nonsense monochrome printer that allows you to save money on ink—as well as paper with the duplex option—this is an excellent choice. And as it prints at 1200 x 1200 dpi—twice the resolution of most other mono lasers but at the same speed—the ML-3310ND is equally an excellent option if quality is what you’re looking for.”

Posted by: STAFF
The new Calibre X560DF video card from Sparkle is equipped with a new cooling system, a backplate for anti-bending purposes or to avoid scratches and features a noticeable increase in performance compared to the stock models, thanks to its overclock from the factory.

REVIEW: NZXT Tempest 210 @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 4:13P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In keeping with their budget-oriented heritage, NZXT has the Tempest 210 mid-tower chassis, a more lightweight version of what we saw in the Tempest 410 Elite. Looking to maintain some similar aesthetics and functionality, the Tempest 210 is a more affordable alternative. In truth, the Tempest 210 is looking to grab the budget-minded gaming audience. It looks full of potential on paper with plenty of useful features, but how does it work on the bench? Let`s find out."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Silverstone Raven 3 (RV03) Full Tower Computer Chassis & Strider Gold 850 Watt Power Supply Combo Review
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 3:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks has a 2 for 1 review deal featuring products from Silverstone ... * * *Silverstone Raven 3 (RV03) Full Tower Computer Chassis & Strider Gold 850 Watt Power Supply Combo Review* * * What separates a true Silverstone premium case from any other? It?s mainly the creative orientation and placement of system components to yield the best thermal performance. Instead of the common mounting methods, Silverstone engineers use something called a 90-degree method for their high end cases. This means the PCI slots (or back) of the system face out the top. The science behind it is valid since heat naturally rises. This allows them to use quieter low-rpm fans. In our review we found the Fortress 2 (FT02) to be a very quiet case. Today, we?re having a look at another premium case from Silverstone called the Raven 3 (RV03) and we?ve got one of their Strider 850W 80Plus Gold power supplies riding shotgun. *"

OCZ Synapse Cache 64GB @ ocaholic
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 1:21P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their 64 Gigabyte Synapse, OCZ has a neat little cahing SSD in their portfolio. The thought behind these drives is that one can very easily upgrad a computer, where the operating system is installed on a standard hard drive. Therefore one only needs to attacht the drive to board and then install a software. The caching itself works in the background. On the following pages you`ll see if it really is that simple."

[Affiliates News] PC Power & Cooling Silencer M k III 600W Review @ APH
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 10:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Stealth and sneak is the way to be, as a sniper sits behind a nearby tree. Oh the many things he may yet to see, but only one target is the key. Seasons come and seasons go, but the time came when the ground is covered with snow. PC Power & Cooling drops by to say `hello`, only to say that the target is blended in with the snow below. A white power supply is what we see, but a Silencer Mk III 600W is its true identity. Before you slowly move towards the little `X` at the corner of your browser, let me inform you that this power supply we have here at our APH labs is truly unique. Nowadays, more and more people are leaning towards such products, and I am no exception. Sometimes, such unique products come with a high price tag, as some people possess the idea of unique means special, and if I want it, I am willing to pay more. I don`t know about you, but when it comes down to such products I want, there is always a tight budget; especially money is usually not in your favor. Being the computer enthusiast that I am, having only a couple computers in the house for my personal use doesn`t seem to cut it. This eventually leads to spending more and more money on secondary computers in different locations of the house for the sole purpose of conveniently accessing the internet or files on my network. Whether you have a mindset like me, or if you simply have a limited budget for a decent enough computer, PC Power & Cooling`s Silencer Mk III is a good place to start for mid-range power supplies. With most power supplies possessing the usual dark colors, the Silencer Mk III comes in a unique white body. But does its outer look live up to market niche expectations? Read on to find out!"

REVIEW: OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 240GB Revisited @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 9:53A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are looking at the new top tier SSD offering from OWC, the Mercury Extreme Pro 6G 240GB. This drive may sound familiar and it should, as we reviewed it back in July of this year. However, OWC has re-introduced this drive with a different controller and different NAND which essentially makes this a different drive all together. This updated version features a SandForce 2282 controller in place of the previous 2281 controller and Premium Toshiba 32nm toggle NAND in place of the previous Micron Sync 25nm NAND. Is this update going to make a difference to the drives performance? We shall see."

Asus ET2410ITUS-B018C Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 9:39A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Asus ET2410IUTS-B018C is a midrange touch screen all-in-one desktop PC. Asus has made major strides to pack this version with hearty features like a quad-core processor, integrated Wi-Fi and an HDMI-in port to extend the useful life of the monitor. The result raises the bar for mainstream touch-enabled all-in-one desktops.?"

The BW-12B1LT from Asus has proven to be a solid contender in the relatively new market of Blu-Ray writers. It operates quietly, has a sleek look, and produced reliable burns with every type of recordable media I tossed at it."

Asus Zenbook UX21E Hands-On Video Demo:
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus Zenbook UX21E is a new ultra-slim notebook by Asus, that is representative of the new "Ultrabook" class of machines, to use a term coined by Intel. The Zenbook UX21E is an incredible 3mm thick at the front and 9mm at the rear and has spun metal and hairline aluminum for a strikingly sleek appearance. It's also built with Intel's new low-power Sandy Bridge Core i7 2677M mobile dual-core processor, 4GB of DDR3-1333 memory, a 128GB SATA 3 SSD and an 11.6-inch LCD with a native resolution of 1366X768. We go hands-on in this video review but stay tuned in the days ahead for the full review.

Asus 20" ET2011AUKB-B006E All-In-One PC Review
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 9:02A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It feels like only yesterday that we evaluated the Asus 2400ET, a touch-enabled All-In-One desktop that had high-end specifications and a $1,250 price tag to match. Turns out, that was nearly four months ago, and if you aren't interested in a touch panel, a Core i5 processor, and don't have deep pockets, perhaps the scaled-back ET2011 we'll be showing you here is worth consideration. This is a somewhat unique product in the Asus Eee Top ET2011 AIO line up, in that in relies on AMD's Fusion Brazos E-350 APU in lieu of a more traditional desktop processor...

Asus Eee Pad Slider Hands-On Video Demo
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus Eee Pad Slider is a break-out device, much in the way the Asus Eee Pad Transformer broke the mold not so long ago when it was announced. Though it's built on the same base NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform that many 10.1 Android Honeycomb slates are these days, the Slider offers a netbook-like slide-out keyboard solution that takes the standard tablet experience to a whole new level. For not a lot more size and weight (or cost for that matter), you also get a full-sized USB port and HDMI output with Slider. We stepped through the device in detail in our full review recently, but today we thought we'd update our coverage with a quick video demo of the Slider in action. Enjoy and be sure to check out the full review, if you haven't seen it already...

Alienware M18x Gaming Notebook: A Tale of Two GPUs
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Big, bad and unapologetic. These three words accurately describe the Alienware M18x. Unapologetic about its size, this is a desktop replacement notebook that almost defies the entire category of portable machines. Sure, it's portable, in the sense that you can move it from room to room or perhaps pack it up for a LAN, but you're not tossing this bad boy into a dainty backpack or laptop tote. No, the Alienware M18x steps into the ring weighing in at nearly 12lbs (11.935) and thumbs its nose at would-be competitors. In our efforts to evaluate Alienware's new gaming Goliath, the company decided to send us two machines with identical base builds, an Intel Core i7-2630QM quad-core at the helm, but with different graphics subsystems. One M18x came strapped with a pair of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M GPUs in SLI. The other came packing heat with dual AMD Radeon HD 6990M GPUs in CrossFire...

ASUS Rampage IV Formula BF3 Edition Motherboard Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 9:40P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Rampage IV Formula motherboard comes in two versions: a standard edition and one that comes bundled with Battlefield 3. The Rampage IV Formula X79 motherboard uses a standard ATX form-factor unlike the wider E-ATX Rampage IV Extreme and the shorter Micro-ATX Rampage IV Gene. Like previous Republic of Gamers Rampage lineup motherboards, the Rampage IV Formula is designed for ultimate gaming performance as well as comfortable extreme overclocking. With the new Extreme Engine DIGI+ II bringing precise fully digital power delivery towards the CPU, memory controller and system memory, the Rampage IV Formula is stable whether you are using a regular air cooler or you are an LN2 extreme performance tuner. The Rampage IV Formula supports up to Quad-SLI or CrossfireX setups natively and provides superb network performance via Intel LAN plus GameFirst for the ultimate gaming experience.///"

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.
