Mushkin 240GB Chronos Go Deluxe Review
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 4:22P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Equipped with 256GB of toggle-mode NAND flash managed by an LSI Sandforce 2281 controller, the Chronos Go Deluxe delivers excellent performance across the test spectrum. Rated to deliver read/write speeds of up to 560MB/sec read and 520MB/sec write, the drive meets or exceeds these performance parameters. Performance degradation over time should prove minimal with the drive supporting the TRIM command, if the operating system supports it, and 16GB of over-provisioning that reduces the capacity of the drive to 240GB; a common practice with SandForce controlled drives. Delivered with an MTBF rating of 2 million hours, or just over 228 years, you can reasonably expect the Chronos Go Deluxe to last well past the three-year warranty period. Outside of the pricing, I can say this drive performed up to expectations delivering its rated performance and then some more!"

Patriot FUEL+ 7800mAh Mobile Rechargeable Battery
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 4:22P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Portable batteries used to recharge your portable devices, tablets and smartphones have been around for quite some time now but even so i don`t really see that many people using them when Im on the road. Personally i use 3 portable batteries daily not only because i don`t like having to remember to bring the same one along with me every time i go out (eventually i will forget) but also because one would need to be recharged three times as much so i have one placed behind the seat of my car, another in my backpack and a third one (the smallest of the three) in my shoulder wallet/bag. On the other hand out of all the people i know just 3 own portable batteries and only 1 of them actually carries it around with him in case of an emergency. Todays review is about one such portable battery and more specifically the latest PowerBank released by Patriot the FUEL+ 7800mAh."

Pittasoft BlackVue DR550GW-2CH Car Dashcam
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 4:22P | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Have any of you ever wondered what kind of mini cams are used in all those car accident video clips uploaded in YouTube? Well i don`t know whether or not people use such devices in your countries but they certainly don`t in mine (at least not up until this day) so i took it upon myself to find as much as i could for the so called car dashboard cameras. You see i have been watching such clips for many years now (especially ones with accidents caused by extreme weather conditions) but it never occurred to me that there are many companies out there that only focus in the design, development and manufacture of such dashboard cameras. One of those companies and perhaps the most well-known in the market is Pittasoft and today we will be taking a look at their latest BlackVue DR550GW-2CH dual-cam Wi-Fi compatible model. "

Powerocks Super Magicstick 2800mAh Universal Extended Battery Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 4:22P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review Ive got what might be a great stocking stuffer, its small and very useful. The product is from Powerocks and its called the Super MagicStick, its a 2800mAh external battery for cellphones and other portable devices. Ive reviewed plenty of portable batteries in my time in various capacities and the the size you need depends on you and your uses, large batteries are great but not exactly portable, small are nice and portable but have a small capacity, which one is right for you depends on what youre doing really. The small ones like what I have today are great for emergency uses or taking with you on a daily basis when you think you might be away from a power source. So read on..."

OCZ Fatal1ty 750W Review
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 4:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Fatal1ty 750W, OCZ have a rather aggressively priced power supply in their portfolio. For as little as 75 Euro you can get a unit, that features modular cable management, an illuimnated fan and up to 750 Watts of continuous power delivery next to an 80Plus Bronze certificate. This sound like quite a lot of hardware for this kind of money, doesn't it?

NVIDIA SHIELD Review
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 4:01P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the end, it`s up to you whether you feel $300 USD is justified. For what the SHIELD offers, the price is more than acceptable, but if you don`t plan on utilizing all that it offers, you`ll be in for a tougher decision. Still, if you have a high-end NVIDIA PC or are planning on buying a new GPU, the SHIELD will make a great addition to anyone`s holiday wishlist. Just don`t forget to factor in an additional $39.99 for the official carrying case, because you`re going to want that to."

FC-1300 Cool Style Laser Gaming Wired Mouse Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 11:55A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review I have an inexpensive laser gaming mouse, at least I think its a laser sensor, it might be optical. The mouse says laser sensor, the packaging on the front says laser sensor, but on the back it says optical. The sensor in the mouse goes up to 3200dpi, no it goes up to 2800dpi, no it goes up to 200dpi. Yeah I dont know what the sensor levels are, there are three different labels with different DPI levels listed. The mouse also has adjustable weights in it, just kidding, actually no it doesnt, the packaging says it does but in reality it doesnt. Yeah this is ridiculous, read on if you want, if not then dont "
