Icy Dock ICYRaid MB662U3-2S Dual-HDD Enclosure Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Apr 29 2013 | 5:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Icy Dock ICYRaid MB662U3-2S, unlike other external USB 3.0 enclosures has the hardware capability to run drives in RAID, independent of the PC. The ICYRaid MB662U3-2S replaces the discontinued MB662UEAB-2S which used the older USB 2.0 and FireWire connection with a much faster and more widely used USB 3.0 port. Users can install a pair of two 3.5 HDDs up to 4TB in capacity each for a total of up to 8GB of storage inside the Icy Dock MB662U3-2S. To cool both drives when they are continuously used, the ICYRaid MB662U3-2S is equipped with a 40mm Sunon MAGLev fan that operates silently and can be adjust through a built-in fan controller. Users can configure drives installed inside the MB662U3-2S in RAID 0, RAID 1, BIG, or JBOD just by simply moving the RAID toggle switch and pressing the reset button while the enclosure is on. No further steps are required, other than formatting the drives or adjust the partition when necessary of course. The Icy Dock ICYRAid MB662U3-2S is compatible with either Mac or PC and comes with a three-year limited warranty."

Cooler Master Storm Power-RX @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Apr 29 2013 | 4:27P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to mouse pads there are a few things to consider, but for the most part people dont really put much thought into them. As hardware enthusiasts we rarely see people who change out their mouse pads often like we sometimes see with PC hardware, mice, and keyboards. Because of that its easy to just ignore them, but a proper mouse pad can still play a good roll in your pc/gaming experience. That is why we still see companies innovating and trying new things like with the Power-RX mouse pad from Cooler Master Storm. Today Im going to take a look at the Power-RX pad and put it to the test with a few different mice to see how it performs."

Bioshock Infinite Review
     Mon, Apr 29 2013 | 12:22P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you do find yourself running low on health, Salt, or ammunition, there is a decent chance Elizabeth will call out to you that she has something for you. With the press of a button you will receive a health or Salt vial, or an entirely new weapon with a filled clip, ready to fire. This happens in almost real-time during battles, so enemies keep moving while the item is thrown and caught. However, it did appear the enemies could not damage you during the perhaps second-long event. Oh, and in case you were worried, she does not need your help in combat. The game is not one giant escort mission."

RHA MA450i Earphones Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Apr 29 2013 | 6:39A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For some earphones are what they occasionally use when they need to and most likely those people are fine with the earphones that come with their device. Others are people who depend on their earphones to take them away from their surroundings or keep them motivated. These are people who are traveling, working out, or are working remotely. They not only want great sound, but also great comfort as well. RHA, a company out of Glasgow, UK has sent us their latest earphones, the MA450i. These earphones feature a solid aluminum design, 10mm Mylar drivers, seven interchangeable ear-tips and a fabric braided cable. The MA450i has also been certified for use with iPhone, iPod and iPad devices so you will be able to make and receive calls."

HTC One Android Smartphone Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sun, Apr 28 2013 | 5:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HTC One Android Smartphone Review @ HardwareHeaven.com So what if HTC could design a handset which looked to compete not with Samsung but Apple in terms of build quality... and what if they refined their OS experience to add some differentiation from Samsung while staying a little closer to Android`s stock experience than Sense had in the past. Well with the HTC One we find out and that is the focus of today`s review."

CM Storm Control-RX Mousepad Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Apr 28 2013 | 4:27P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Right up front Im going to tell you that I am pretty excited about this mousepad. The CM Storm Control-RX is one of two mousepads that we recently received from Cooler Master. (The other being the Power-RX so look for that review soon). The Control-RX seems to be a gamers dream mousepad but we will have to see. As I have said before in a previous review, I dont really care about the surface that I use when gaming but after using this mousepad for a week, I think my view has changed. First off the mousepad is HUGE and it is also extremely smooth. Ive never personally seen anything like it. The Control-RX is geared towards low DPI gamers that need that ability to have precise movement. The smooth Lycra surface gives you zero drag when moving across the surface of the mousepad."

REVIEW: Roccat ISKU Keyboard and Kone XTD Mouse @ PureOverclock
     Sun, Apr 28 2013 | 6:39A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Roccat Kone XTD and ISKU/FX bring some very cool features like the ROCCAT Easy-Shift[+] button. This allows you to have an unprecedented amount of macros as well as control over how you game and/or use your keyboard and mouse. The ROCCAT talk lets the Kone XTD and ISKU/FX talk between each other allowing them to function in unison, making your gaming experience more enjoyable. The Apuri is designed to help free up cable clutter and reduce mouse cable dragging lag. Its USB hub capabilities are gravy and allow it to serve as your peripherals` central hub. These three devices could make for a potent combination."
