eForce GTX 580 Showdown: ASUS Matrix vs.EVGA Classified @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 1:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After spending several weeks with the ASUS MATRIX GeForce GTX580 Platinum and the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified 3072MB we quickly discovered that both video cards are outstanding examples of what the engineers at each company can do. Both designs differ greatly from the reference NVIDIA design and that was fine with us as we didn`t miss any features of the reference card..."

Hitachi Touro Desk Pro 3TB HDD Review
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 12:27A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Desk Pro is a stackable external desk drive that uses USB 3.0 technology to connect to your PC or MAC. Three capacity sizes are available; 1TB, 2TB and the drive we are looking at today, 3TB. The Touro Desk Pro ships with two distinct backup platforms. The first is a seemless backup to the external drive and the second is a free cloud service with 3GB of space. The cloud service can be upgraded to 250GB with a paid subscription. We see our fair share of external drives throughout the year, but the Hitachi Touro Desk Pro stands out from the crowd with its cloud backup service. Hitachi calls this two levels of data protection. You get 3GB out of the box for free, but this account can be upgraded to 250GB for a yearly fee. The cloud portion of the backup can be accessed through any IP device like your PC, tablet or smart phone."

Fractal Design Arc Midi Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 10:32P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Fractal Design Arc Midi Tower is the upper end mid-tower in the company?s second generation of cases to hit the US market. While the Arc Midi Tower has a distinctly different aim than its predecessors, it retains all of Fractal Design?s signature high points. The Arc Midi is Fractal?s signature black powder finish, with faux black brushed steel on the nose and white internal component hardware and fan blades. Styling is understated with no flashing lights, and makes for a very elegant presentation. As the name suggests, the Arc Midi is a mid-tower, comfortably fitting a full sized ATX, micro-ATX of mini-ITX motherboard."

Pantech Link II @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 10:13P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I have the Pantech Link II which is what you would call a feature phone, it?s not an amazingly high-tech assistant like other phones out there, but it gets the job done and sometimes that?s all you really need. The Link II is more of a social centric phone and it does feature a full qwerty keyboard and the capabilities we?ve come to expect from our phones like Bluetooth. The phone is very user friendly along with being thin and lightweight and best of all it?s very inexpensive."

[DreamWare Computers] Silverstone TJ08-E mATX Case
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 10:04P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to check out the PS07 mATX case from Silverstone. The PS07 was a rather unique case - it was from Silverstone`s entry level `Precision` series, but it was built around a chassis from their high end Temjin series. With a few minor changes, like a cheaper bezel and less powerful cooling system, the PS07 was able to undercut it`s big brother the TJ08-E while still offering a terrific case for the money (thanks to the great chassis design). Now, I have it`s big brother the TJ08-E here to see just what the extra investment will get you!"

Thecus N2200XXX NAS Server Review @ DragonSteelMods
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 9:38P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of my favorite products are NAS boxes, I?m not sure exactly why. I think it?s the fact that they?re just so useful. NAS boxes are much better than just an external hard drive ever could be that?s for sure. Thecus is a company that?s well known for their NAS systems, they make some of the best on the market. They?ve recently introduced a new line of NAS servers called XXX, the X?s stand for Xtreme Power, Xtreme Function and Xtreme Value. Today for review I?ve got the latest NAS server from Thecus called the N2200XXX, so let?s just get into it as we?ve got a lot to cover. "

TT eSPORTS Shock One DTS 5.1 Gaming Headset by Thermaltake Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 7:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TT eSPORTS Shock One Gaming Headset by Thermaltake are the flagship model in their line of sound solutions for the gamer. They meet or exceed my criteria for comfort, construction and sound quality. The TT eSPORTS Shock Ones are a must try if you constantly find yourself popping up in the Spawn since you can`t hear what is creeping up behind you."

FSP NB Q90 Universal Laptop P ower Adapter Review @ APH
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 6:45P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let me tell you a small secret within APH Networks. Although all of us here behind the scenes are diverse individuals, we surprisingly have many of the same values, hobbies, and opinions. Take colors for example. Most of you will tend to have a favorite color. Whether you lean towards warm colors like red and orange, or darker and colder colors like purple and blue, colors and how we see them is undoubtedly part of our identity. If you haven`t already noticed, colors are an integral part of society. The Calgary Flames NHL Hockey team conjures up the color of red -- symbolizing fire, energy, strength, and power. The United States of America national flag focuses on red, white and blue; symbolizing freedom and patriotism. The Tt eSPORTS sub-brand by Thermaltake has taken black and red as their home colors for products, advertisements, and even eSPORTS tournaments. Believe it or not, I am not very far away from the truth if I say the world runs on colors. Even my fellow co-workers love their colors. Of course, we tend to show more love for black and white because of its simplicity. However, we do like our contrasts. Take pink for example. This color is backed up with centuries of societal stereotypes that can be quite intimidating. But did that stop Jonathan (My boss) from choosing that as his main Windows Live Messaging font color? Did that stop FSP Group from choosing pink as one of the available colors in the new NB Q90 universal notebook adapter? No! Heck, it didn`t even stop me from asking Jonathan to get the pink version in for review. Why? Because pink is awesome. And so just how much female overtone pink is the NB Q90 adapter? Read on to find out!"

Z68 Motherboard Roundup Part 2
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 6:07P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the Gigabyte Z68XP-UD4, I was able to achieve a maximum overclock of 4813MHz, which is the highest that I have been able to get my chip up to. The only other time that I had been able to get my 2600K to run at a 48x multiplier was when I had the base clock down around 98MHz, which still gave me around 3700MHz. I didn`t have to raise the voltages going to the vCore on this board much higher than I did on the Sapphire board or any of the other boards I have tested, which just means that the power being given to the chip on the Gigabyte board is a little more clean and constant."

For today?s review we will be looking at the Verbatim?s Mini Wireless Mini Wireless SlimBoard which is a slim keyboard and mouse bundle. This low profile keyboard/mouse uses 2.4 Ghz wireless technology along with a Nano wireless receiver. It is a low-priced option for those needing something portable or in a small form factor for their computing requirements. "

Samsung Green 8GB DDR3-1600 VLP
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Samsung Green lineup feature very low profile memory modules that are power-frugal, and appear to be ideally suited to a setup like an HTPC. These aren't extreme performance overclocking sticks, but they come with an attractive price tag of only $55 for an 8GB DDR3-1600 kit. They look sleek, the slimline design is rare, but what about performance? Do the Green modules sacrifice too much in speed results? To test this, we'll pit them against a high performance memory kit to see what happens.”

Fractal Designs Arc Midi Mid Tower Case Review @MissingRemote
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 11:13A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are continuing our reviews of Fractal Design cases today with their Arc Midi mid tower desktop case. We have previously reviewed the Core 3000, Define Mini, Array R2, and Define XL. Like the other Fractal Design cases, the Arc Midi features a sleek, minimalist design, but it stands out as a versatile case that would work equally well for gaming, HTPC, as a media server, or a combination of all three. It can work as an HTPC but with more built in storage than the R2 and Define Mini. It has 2 fewer HDD bays than the XL, but won?t cost near as much (~$50 less) if you are looking for a great server option, and although the Core 3000 is the closest in design and price, the Arc Midi is slightly larger (8 HDD bays as opposed to 6, more fans, etc.) and has a USB 3.0 port that the Core 3000 lacks. *"

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.
