ECS HDC-I Fusion Mini ITX Motherboard Review
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 4:11P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ECS is taking complete advantage of the feature sets associated with the Brazos platform in the HDC-I and keeping this board at a price point that consumers can afford. These mini ITX boards provide great performance and low power consumption, which makes it a very tempting option for tweeners who don`t want to jump to a micro ATX or ATX setup. Consumers get the best of both worlds with the HDC-I if they are looking for a entry-level mainboard for their next home theater PC."

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Keyboard Review - Mechanically superior? Just mechanical?
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 11:07A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
No-one can ultimately make the decision for you; it is still up to you to make the purchase based on your personal preferences and needs. If you have a local small-business computer store which has a demo model of the Razer BlackWidow then definitely experience how it feels to the touch. While you are there be sure to check out the SteelSeries 6Gv2 keyboard to feel the difference between the blue and the black switches since if gaming is your priority you may prefer the latter switch whether or not on that keyboard (sorry SteelSeries!)"

     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 10:51A | BIOS | PermaLink
