Case Labs MAGNUM M8 Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 11:27A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This case as been awe inspiring since it hit our dock given the number of options and the sheer size of the MAGNUM M8. Case Labs obviously put a lot of time into the design and listened to a lot of customer feedback and then combined that with the skill and tools to make this work of art. If you made us pick the thing we liked most about the MAGNUM M8 it would simply be options. We have never seen a case that gives you this level of flexibility both for your current build and most likely for many after..."

Crucial C300 vs. m4 (4 x in RAID 0) - Time for an Upgrade
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 11:27A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just over 12 months ago we checked out the Crucial C300 256GB SSDs in RAID 0 and found ourselves very impressed with the performance that Crucial was offering with the new SATA drives. The C300 drives from Crucial were one of the first SATA III drives to come out and in RAID 0 we saw some awesome performance out of the 1TB setup via the four 256GB drives. Today we jump forward and find ourselves looking at the brand new m4 drives from Crucial to see what`s going on with performance. We`ll also be taking the same approach as we did last year with the four drives on hand which will again be running in RAID 0. Outside of the new m4 drives, though, we`ve got ourselves a brand new Areca RAID card to make sure we`re able to get the most amount of performance out of our drives. We`ll take a closer look at that in just a moment, along with a closer look at the drives themselves."

NVIDIAs Tegra 3 (Kal-El) Quad-Core Mobile Superchip Detailed
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 11:19A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I was lucky enough to be invited to the secret unveiling of NVIDIA`s upcoming Tegra 3 conference call last week where we had unveiled to us their upcoming quad-core Kal-El chip. I`ve covered NVIDIA`s Tegra 3 chip for quite a while now, as I believe it`ll be the first real step toward a totally new direction in technology. It sounds like a bold claim, but by the end of this article you`ll have your eyes opened to a totally different perspective, not only of NVIDIA, but of things to come. NVIDIA chose to use a more intelligent design with Tegra 3 which requires decisions early on in the development process. This is why the companion core was made and used, as well as Tegra 3 being the world`s first variable processor. Tegra 3 sports a 500-percent increase in horsepower over the Tegra 2, all while using less power than the Tegra 2 and up to 67-percent less power than most other SoC (system-on-a-chip) solutions on the market. Tegra 3 also supports 3D Stereoscopic and is the first time that a PC-class CPU is made available to mobile devices."

HP TouchSmart 520xt Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 10:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The HP TouchSmart 520xt is a 23-inch all-in-one touch PC that offers lots of multimedia features, including an HDMI input and USB 3.0 connectivity. It comes in many configurations to fit your budget, but our review unit had an Intel Core i7 CPU and 8GB of RAM that provided a decent experience, although not the fastest on the market.?"

Antec Solo II Review - XSReviews

Posted by: STAFF
I`ve been reviewing quite a few Antec products recently and they`ve all turned up pretty well so far. The last of my Antec product reviews is the Solo II case, the prequel of which has ended up as one of the most oft reviewed ones on the site. This new edition updates the original design with a few extra features, while maintaing the parts that made it a good buy. At least that`s the plan anyway. Let`s see if Antec followed through."

Verbatim Wireless Mini Travel Mouse Review @ DragonSteelMods
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 9:38P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I?ve got a tiny little mouse from Verbatim aptly named the Mini Travel Mouse. The mouse is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. The Travel Mouse is wireless and you can stow the receiver right inside of the mouse itself. If you?re in the need of a very small and portable mouse then this is what you want. This thing is probably the smallest mouse I?ve ever seen."

TechwareLabs Editorial: 5 Ways OS X Lion Will Increase Productivity
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 5:24P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apple announced a slew of new features to Apple?s upcoming operations system OS X 10.7 Lion at their recent World Wide Developers Conference. Apple actually showed off Lion last November, and the developer preview has been out since February, but that of course didn?t stop Apple from showing it off some more. With all this time to think of it?s new features, and it?s July release getting ever closer, I thought I?d talk a little about how I think 5 of Lions 250+ new features will increase your productivity."

First announced at the end of 2008, SWTOR has been developed by BioWare and of course is based in the Star Wars universe."

ASUS P9X79 Pro (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 2:42P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Out of the ASUS boards we`ve looked at which include the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme, the ASUS Sabertooth X79 along with the P9X79 Deluxe we linked to just above as well, the P9X79 Pro is actually the cheapest option out of the four boards we`ve checked out. What does the drop in price mean, though? We`ll find out about the performance soon enough, but the first thing we need to do is look at the package and while we`ve already checked out the box in our original preview, we didn`t get a chance to look at the contents of the box."
