Corsair obviously hopes for the AX1200i to become the favorite
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 4:46P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even though the company started as a specialist manufacturer of RAM modules, Corsair has also been a major player in the PSU market for years. Nowadays the company offers a very wide range of power related products and their units are usually into every enthusiast's shortlist while browsing for high-end equipment. It would not be new if Corsair released just another high performance unit; however, today we are having a look at the brand new AX1200i, which is something more than a simple power supply. Bearing an 80Plus Platinum certification, boasting extreme performance figures and bringing the all-new Corsair Link DSP interface, Corsair obviously hopes for the AX1200i to become the favorite unit of hardcore enthusiasts. Does it have what it takes to entice the ludicrously demanding target group it aims at? We will find out in this review.

Corsair AX1200i Digital ATX Power Supply Preview
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 4:45P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair’s attention to detail and understanding of the enthusiast community has allowed the company to evolve from a memory manufacturer into a well-regarded supplier of cases, cooling hardware, input devices, PC audio, power supplies, gaming accessories and storage devices. Their latest product, the Corsair AX1200i Digital ATX Power Supply, takes things a step further and blazes a trail by adding some innovative and useful features not found in any competing products. The Corsair AX1200i Digital ATX Power Supply’s name hints at this PSU’s 1200 watt rating, but beyond its monstrous power output, the AX1200i is also highly efficient and sports a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) to provide digitally-controlled power and an interface to Corsair’s Corsair Link software for real-time monitoring and control...

Sony Bravia HX750 review: affordable all-round TV
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 4:45P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first thing you notice is that Sony went with a completely different design for the HX750 compared to the HX850. The seamless, monolithic design made way for a traditional edge around the screen, and the long, wide base of the HX850 has been replaced by a thin, u-shaped foot with only two ends sticking out from under the TV. It's an attractive design. The screen itself has been treated with an anti-reflection top layer, which we are big fans of. The HX750 has virtually the same features as the more expensive HX850, only the engine is a bit less advanced.

Corsair AX1200i 1200W PSU
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 4:44P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today Corsair introduced the AX1200i power supply it had announced at Computex. This isn't just any power supply, it's the first PSU for high-end desktop PCs to use digital control. The DSP is supposed to ensure extremely high efficiency and very low ripple values. It also comes with interesting features such as the ability to monitor and adjust vital parts of the PSU with software.

Genius SW-G2.1 3000GX Speakers @ Techreaction.net
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 11:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we had a nice surprise waiting on our doorstep, the GX Gaming Series SW-G2.1 3000 gaming speaker system. This 4-piece gaming speaker system sports a heavy-duty subwoofer with a 6.5 inch driver for delivering, hopefully, wall rattling bass, two satellite speakers boasting a 3-inch driver to help give vivid and vibrant mid and high frequency sounds and a designated control box with easily adjustable audio controls. The 3000 GX has a black/gold color theme on it to help the aesthetic value of the speakers while they sit on and around your desk."

EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Classified 4GB with EVBOT review
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 10:38A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ll test the EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Classified today. A product that is 100% customized from PCB to cooling. Software voltage regulation works, but obviously as well is limited to that 1.175V. EVGA however does have an alternative for the Classified model as tested today, you can hook up a small piece of hardware to it called EVBot, which controls the voltages directly at hardware level, and thus bypassing the NVAPI software limitation. Hi-hoo 1400 MHz, here we come ! Read the review right here"

Corsair Obsidian 550D Case Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 9:43A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With excellent build quality, enthusiast-focused features and plenty of expansion options, Corsair`s new 550D chassis personifies everything the Obsidian series is known for.  But beneath its plain exterior lies one major departure from other products in the Obsidian lineup:  this case is designed to provide the quietest possible computing experience. "

3 Way DDR3 SODIMM Comparison
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 9:18A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are quite a few people out there who support that having more RAM (system memory) in your notebook/laptop is not always beneficial and for good or bad there are many out there who take their opinion for granted. So a few months back when i started receiving emails by some of you asking the very same question from me i decided that instead of answering based on what i think and without any real proof it would be a lot better to actually test both 4GB and 8GB kits and see whether or not more is better. Fast forward a few months later and finally today we can release our 3 way comparison (which is not really a comparison but rather just a way to see if 8 is really better than 4) between 3 SODIMM DDR3 Dual Channel kits from both Kingston and Nanya."

Corsair Vengeance Lineup Part one - Keyboards @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 9:05A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every once in a while you find a company that is able to take a normal product that everyone has and change it in a way that makes everyone wonder why it was never done before. As much as it pains me to say this, Apple was one of those companies. In the pc components business there are a few as well, but the company that stands out the most to me would be Corsair. Every time corsair enters a new market, I find myself impressed with what they have to offer. Even though it seems like they are always jumping into random markets, they take their time and research what everyone has to offer and what people would really want to see. This week we are going to take a look at their new Vengeance lineup of mice and keyboards to see if they have done the same in these new markets. Today we are going to start with their new keyboards, lets dig in and see what they are all about."
