Assassins Creed 3 Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Jan 19 2013 | 12:11A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Assassin`s Creed 3 is the latest installment in the popular Ubisoft franchise. Despite being called Assassin`s Creed 3, there were in fact several other titles in between but are not completely necessary in fully understanding the narrative as the game begins with exposition to catch players up with the plot from previous titles. On the PC, Assassin`s Creed 3 has been optimized for DirectX 11 hardware, boasting higher resolution textures compared to current consoles and adds tessellation in the snow levels. Ubisoft`s new AnvilNext engine is now also able to support weather cycling and render massive crows of up to 2000 units. Users using NVIDIA 600 series cards can take advantage of Temporal Anti-Aliasing Enhancements, which significantly improve scenes while eliminating edge and texture flickering while in motion."

Plantronics GameCom 780 7.1 Surround Sound
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This headset integrates a noise-cancelling microphone, which allows your voice to be heard clearly during multiplayer games (by cancelling out any background noise). This can make a big difference to your teammates if you do a lot of online gaming. The other major feature is the virtual surround sound (courtesy of Dolby technology). You’ll need to install the GameCom software to utilise this feature, but it aims to create a directional listening experience, rather than standard stereo audio."

Toshiba THNSNF 512GB SSD review
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the continuous activity test we see the strong side of the Toshiba SSD. When the SSD is in constant use for a longer period of time, the performance barely dips like it does for most other SSDs. This is of less importance for consumers, but for servers this is an advantage.

Three EnGenius routers reviewed: ESR-300H, ESR-600H and ESR-750H
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Out of the three EnGenius routers, the compact ESR-300H made the best impression on us. If you have no use for a router that supports 5 GHz, like if you don't own any devices that are compatible with that frequency, then it's a worthy option. However, its average price of £60 is eerily close to that of a number of quite good dual-band routers from other brands, for example the Edimax BR-6675nD. The VPN server on the ESR-300H could have put that model on top, were it not for the slow 100 Mbit ports.

Seasonic G-Series: G-550 Power Supply Review
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 4:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Seasonic G Series PSU is here for review in its 550 watt capacity and it looks to be a return to basics for the company with this being basically a "no-frills" unit that has been released without much fanfare. But the basics for Seasonic usually outline what you truly need in a PSU; reliable clean power with a low sound profile.

Cetons My Media Center Controller Software Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 12:24P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier today a new Windows 8 Metro version of Ceton`s suite of applications for managing Windows Media Center joined the existing lineup of Andriod, Windows Phone and iOS companion apps priced at $4.99. As part of this effort they were rebranded from Ceton Companion Apps to My Media Center. All the great functionality for browsing recordings, managing series and scheduling, and browsing the guide is still there, but this time Windows 8 tablet and desktop Metro users can also join the party. We had a chance to take an early spin through the updated UI, let`s dig in. *"

In this group test I will focus on a specific feature and gaming goal to reduce the variables as we go on a quest to find some of the best First-Person-Shooter wired mouse out there. To properly gauge the performance of my new gaming rodents I spend several weeks with each to get to know the ins and outs, their features and deliver a good dose of my personal opinions on these mice.

Xi3 Making Valve’s Fabled Steam Box?
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier, we came across a hot item about Valve and their rumored Steam Box gaming console. Word came out that modular PC maker Xi3 was Valve’s hardware partner on the project and was showing off the result, a beautifully designed computer called the Piston. However, when we eagerly scooted over to Valve’s booth here at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, they told us that the story simply was not true.

Sony MDR-1RNC review: excellent noise cancellation
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 12:00P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All things considered, we were pretty impressed by the MDR-1RNC. Generally speaking, the headphones sounds excellent, even if they’re not the best we've ever heard. The lows are a little too weak, and this will be noticeable to those that enjoy bass-heavy music. For the majority of genres these headphones will be great, however, and that's supplemented by the extremely effective noise cancellation. The latter does affect the sound signature, but it's something you can live with. If you frequently travel in noisy environments, you will definitely appreciate the silence created by the 1RNC.

Posted by: STAFF
Rosewill just introduced their first passive cooling PSU: the SilentNight 500 W made by Super Flower. It offers Platinum efficiency, high performance, and noise output at close to zero levels because of the absence of a cooling fan. This unit goes up against some strong competition, but has many interesting features."
