Roccat ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Dec 28 2011 | 9:38P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roccat has shown us here at Benchmark Reviews that it has what it takes to compete successfully in the gaming mouse market. What we are going to find out today is whether they can follow that success with the Roccat ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard. Like the KONE[+] gaming mouse, the ISKU gaming keyboard has EasyShift[+] and when these two devices are paired together they can communicate with each other using the Roccat Talk protocol. There are three EasyShift[+] zones featuring 28 easy-to-reach macro keys, 5 doubly-programmable dedicated M-keys and 3 doubly-programmable Thumbster T-Keys. It is possible to assign different pre-defined functions to the eight media keys and you can also re-assign the F-keys to be used as shortcut or application launch keys. The illuminated keys have five levels of brightness and will auto dim when the keyboard has been idle for a predefined amount of time. If this hasn`t got you interested then I don`t know what will, please read on to find out more."

UEBO M100 Digital Media Player Review @ APH Networks
     Wed, Dec 28 2011 | 6:45P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lately, you may have heard of my recent trip to Hong Kong. I believe Hong Kong is like my second home to me, because every time I visit, I take home something of great value. It was less than five years ago that I came back to Canada happily bringing home a Japanese PlayStation 3 (Japanese PS3s run on the same area code as North American PS3s) I got for a cheaper price, without tax, and of course, the opportunity to evade the immense waiting lines. At the time, the PlayStation 3 was just another gaming system that many parents loathed. For our family however, the gaming system became much more than a prosthetic used for killing Nazi Zombies, if you catch my drift. Surprisingly, my parents fully accepted the console and all its features. Wanted to watch a DVD? Turn on the PlayStation 3. Wanted to listen to music using an external storage device or a CD? Turn on the PlayStation 3. Wanted to watch a movie off an external storage device? Turn on the PlayStation 3. If we were feeling ambitious, we would buy a Blu-ray and guess what? We turned on the PlayStation 3. Heck, we even showed our parents YouTube videos using the PlayStation 3. However, as the saying goes, All good things come to an end. When my brother moved out, let`s just say that at times, my parents missed the PlayStation 3 more than him. It was not long before my parents forced me to go out shopping for another media player alternative. I soon ended up with a Patriot Box Office network media player, which was reviewed by my colleague Jonathan more than a year ago, because it did all that we wanted it to do for a reasonable price. But are there better things in the market today? Today, we have a new portable media player from UEBO. UEBO states that the M100 media player is stylish on the outside, and genius on the inside. Can it do all this and still be priced a reasonable amount? Read on to find out!"

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (Verizon Wireless) Review @ TechReviewSource.com

Posted by: STAFF
?It`s no PlayStation Phone, but the control pad on Sony Ericsson`s Xperia Play makes it the best gaming phone available in the U.S. today. As with other unique phones, though, the big question is whether the Android-based Xperia Play will see a steady stream of new software that plays to its strengths.?"

ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Intel LGA 2011 @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Dec 28 2011 | 9:12A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When most people think of ASUS, they immediately think of the ROG product line, one that has set itself apart from the rest due to extensive functionality, and top-level overclocking ability. however, ASUS does have a few other products out there that offer the same, if not more, and the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe that recently arrived on our doorstep is definitely one of those products. Boasting ASUS`s improved Dual Intelligent Processors III VRM design, the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe offers performance customization abilities that few other products do, easily setting it apart form the rest."

Samsung Series 9 (NP900X3A-B01UB) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Dec 28 2011 | 9:09A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?While not technically an ultraportable, the 2.9-pound Samsung Series 9 NP900X3A is a competitive and highly attractive notebook computer. It has a 128GB solid-state hard drive that matches the Apple MacBook Air`s but is $100 cheaper. It also has an Intel Core i5 CPU, which beats out most of the ultrabooks as they typically have i3`s.?"

Sapphire Low-Profile Radeon HD 6670 @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, Dec 28 2011 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That is when the new low profile Sapphire HD Radeon 6670 comes into play. This card is capable of playing back awesome video with the clearest of audio and at the same time can even game (well to a certain extent). But what most of you will like is what I mention in the first sentence of this paragraph, this card is a low profile single slot unit that can be placed in almost any rig."

Antec High Current 900W @ PureOverclock
     Wed, Dec 28 2011 | 12:16A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those enthusiasts that feel the need for power and want those beefy graphics cards and highly overclocked processors that suck juice like it`s going out of style (Bulldozer, anyone?), the need for a quality power supply becomes quickly apparent. The Antec High Current Gamer 900W is one such higher-wattage power supply, coming in a sleek black and red design and 80PLUS Bronze certified. It`s not modular, but comes with an attractive price tag of about $140, so there`s something to be said here for good value in a powerful unit."

With the introduction of DRS and KERS, improved driving physics, more realistic AI, a new collection of tracks, an improved focus on multi-player and the greatest racing challenge to date - it just might be."

VisionTek Radeon HD 6850 Video Card @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 9:38P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of us love to look at the latest reviews of the most hardcore PC components and keep apprised of what`s going on up in the clouds, but when it comes down to it, we are going to end up buying something that is a little more affordable. So while reviews of those items are certainly interesting to read, it`s nice to see something a little more mid-ranged. I`m talking about something that will play the latest video games, even though I might have to turn down some of the settings. In this article, Benchmark Reviews is taking a look at the VisionTek 900339 Radeon HD 6850graphics card. The newest series of GPUs has been out for a while now, and we`ve seen the performance charts. We don`t expect any surprises from the VisionTek 900339, but that`s not going to stop us from putting it through its paces and overclocking it. We want to see where the VisionTek Radeon HD 6850 differs from other cards, especially since it sits near the top end of the price range for Radeon HD 6850s."

Thermaltake Dr. Power II Review @ Neoseeker
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 7:15P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The power supply is the hardest component for average users to test, as most devices capable of reading the voltage output of the rails and power connections are expensive and tend not to be viable in the consumer market. The Dr. Power II is looking to change this, so hit our review to see if it can do the job of providing accurate results for the mainstream user."

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.
