SSD NEWS: Intel 520 Series SSD Pictured - Possible Not SandForce Driven
     Fri, Dec 09 2011 | 3:42P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Could we be wrong? It has been a long standing belief by The SSD Review that the new Intel 520 Series SSD is `SandForce Driven` however new evidence has come to light that brings forth another worthy candidate. Anobit Technologies have recently received a great deal of funding from Intel Capital and, as it just so happens, markets their own controller with remarkably similar specs. Check out the pik of the INtel 520 as well!!!"

Hard Reset (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Fri, Dec 09 2011 | 2:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hard Reset (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Last month we previewed Hard Reset for the PC and found it to be a romping, stomping, carnage filled chaotic FPS with enjoyable gameplay and an engrossing environment. It combines all of the best bits of classic shoot `em` ups and sets it in a Blade Runner/Cyber Punk 2020 style universe. This coupled with between level cut scenes reminiscent of a Frank Miller comic made the game stylish and engaging throughout."

REVIEW: NZXT Tempest 410 Elite @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Dec 09 2011 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a boatload of cooling options, NZXT is looking to push airflow in the Tempest 410 Elite case, similar to the storm of its namesake. Also adding the ability to house a 240mm radiator, water is the second ingredient for this Tempest. Toss in some other convenience features and this mid-tower case looks to garner attention in a crowded market. So is the Tempest 410 Elite a force to be reckoned with, or just a load of hot air? Let`s take a closer look and find out."

News - Samsung ML-2540 Monochrome Laser Printer Review at Overclockers Online
     Fri, Dec 09 2011 | 11:59A | Printers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Where do we start to end off this review? The Samsung ML-2540 is not a fancy printer but it wasn?t designed to be on. The ML-2540 is perfect for a student living in a dorm where space is tight. It produces very high quality black and white prints at 24 pages per minute with the first sheet coming out in nine seconds."

Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Fri, Dec 09 2011 | 11:58A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If transfer speeds are important to you, the Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive is certainly the drive to purchase. Our tests show you can write a 1GB file in less than ten seconds and read that same 1GB file in six seconds. Kingston has done a tremendous job of releasing a product that achieves the advertised 225MB/s read speed and came within 10% of the published 135MB/s write speed in a real-world large file transfers."

G-Technology G-DRIVE Mobile HDD Review
     Fri, Dec 09 2011 | 9:43A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hitachi is making a big push with their G-Technology brand of portable storage drives. Just a few weeks ago I was at a San Jose Sharks hockey game and during one of the breaks a commercial aired on the display above the rink. The G-DRIVE Mobile was the focus of the commercial. I thought it was kind of cool to see a storage product featured so prominently to mainstream users. In a sense you can think of G-Technology as Hitachi`s MAC wing. Most of their products feature FireWire 800 interfaces, are designed to look MAC sheik and many are capable of handling the stress of heavy A/V editing. The G-DRIVE Mobile falls into the first two categories. With its piano black cover and silver aluminium casing for protection, the Mobile will look right at home next to your MAC or new Ultrabook."

Asus Zenbook UX31 Laptop Review
     Fri, Dec 09 2011 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today HardwareLOOK we have been able to get our hands on one of Asus’s proudest and most stylish laptop products on the market to date, the Asus Zenbook UX31. The Zenbook series is one of the most portable of all of Asus’s range, but yet retaining some extreme power. It’s fair to say that the Zenbook can be classed as a ultra laptop. It is and has everything you would look for in a laptop designed to be portable, of which all laptops are, but some still managed to be very stationary products, but not with the powerful Zenbook.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
