Tek-Republic TH Pro Virtual 7.1 Surround Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Nov 30 2011 | 9:08A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tek-Republic is a new company whom we have not dealt with before, so the slate is clean for a great impression to be made! - Based out of California, Tek-Republic are focusing on headsets and gaming mice solutions for now and we like the simple approach to start off with. Out of the three odd headsets already adorning the company`s product line, we received the TH Pro which boasts virtual 7.1 surround sound via software backing, just like many others we have tested recently. Among some of the various attributes featured here within is a noise cancelling Mic, noise-isolating ear pads and an adjustable padded headband. Up to this point everything is looking very much as we would expect it to look for this type of headset. What is going to prove telling is how well the software component is implemented in order to allow a great simulated surround environment to be created."

Thecus N8900 8-Bay Rackmount NAS Review
     Wed, Nov 30 2011 | 9:05A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NAS market has really heated up this year. Personal, corporate and service based cloud computing have brought a new vigor to the industry. At the same time, reductions in cash flow have left companies asking for more features and expecting them at lower prices. The global war on energy and fossil fuels is driving power requirements down and putting a new emphasis on power efficiency. To meet the large list of demands, NAS manufacturers needed to go back to the drawing board, rethink their strategies, evaluate their designs from a new perspective and then finally execute with a laser like focus on the key areas that have emerged as features required for the next decade. SATA / SAS 6Gb/s RAID, 8GB system memory, eight HDD bays, second generation Core i3 processor, PCIe all with HDMI and audio multimedia capabilities. You might think I`m talking about your dream PC, but these are just some of the features found on Thecus` new N8900 enterprise NAS server. The N8900 is a new breed of NAS that ushers in next generation features. These features will eventually become standard on most of these product types - three years from now. The N8900 is an advancement in technology, a one small step for man type of thing. The N8900 is revolutionary more than it is an evolution of an old design."

Thermaltake Battle Dragon Bag @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Nov 30 2011 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We try to make it out to as many LAN?s as possible every year on top of our own events. Because of that we have had a strong interest in finding different ways to make packing up your rig to make going to LAN?s easier. In the past we have taken a look at the difference between a SFF build and a laptop, looked at ways to pack your peripherals, and even a SFF build for my wife. The SFF build for my wife has been perfect, but none of our solutions have helped her be able to pack everything up easily and carry it all into a LAN in one trip. Thermaltake?s new dragon bag lets you pack everything but your PC in it, including your monitor. Finally a way to cut those loading and unloading trips down to one!"

Thermaltake Dr.Power II Universal ATX PSU Tester Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Nov 30 2011 | 8:58A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thermaltake Dr. Power II Universal ATX Power Supply Tester makes testing a PSU simple and easy. The Dr. Power II has been designed to support every ATX power supply available today. Dr. Power II includes an oversized LCD panel to show the values of each rail tested. There are connections for the 24-pin motherboard connector, 8 pin CPU connector, molex connector, SATA connector, and 8 pin PCI-E connector. This means that there is accurate voltage indicating for the +12V/+5V/+3.3V/5VSB/-12V rails. Inside are built-in PG alarm systems that will signal in low-voltage, high-voltage, and no voltage situations."

ZOTAC`s GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores comes with some of the highest overclocks out of the box, compared to other GTX 560 Ti 448 cards released today. The card also uses a more compact form factor, which should help it fit smaller cases or compact media PCs."

Thortech PSU Roundup 800-1200w Review - XSReviews
     Tue, Nov 29 2011 | 8:35P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since getting our greedy mits on an oscilloscope XSR has been back in full swing with PSU reviews, or at least half a PSU review. Today we`ll be doing the same with a couple of Thortech units, part of Thunderbolt Plus range. One`s 800w, the other 1000w. While our test rig can`t pull anywhere near the maximum of these units, let`s see if we can stress them a little."

Tt eSPORTS Black 4000 dpi Gaming Mouse Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Nov 29 2011 | 7:31P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Black Gaming Mouse has a name that pigeonholes its purpose, but features that are an advantage in all types of applications. Using the Philips 4000 dpi laser, the Tt eSPORTS Black Gaming Mouse has all the speed and precision you`ll need to stay one up on the competition. Selectable on-the-fly 400/800/2000/4000 dpi let`s you slow down or speed up the action at the touch of a button, with an LED indicator so you always know where your setting stands.

AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition Review @ Neoseeker
     Tue, Nov 29 2011 | 7:15P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD today introduces the Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition, its new quad-core flagship CPU that still uses the aging Deneb CPU architecture. Yet it`s AMD fastest stock quad-core yet at 3.7GHz, while retaining at 125W TDP, all for $195 USD. It`s similar in price to quite a few dual- and quad-core CPU offerings from rival Intel, so hit our review to see if the new Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition manages to stay competitive at this price range."

Tek Republic TM Gaming Mouse @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Nov 29 2011 | 7:12P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here at LanOC Reviews we consider ourselves to be fairly picky with our mice reviews. We are still one of the only sites to bring to light the Z-Axis tracking issues when we come across them and as a whole we hold every mouse that comes into the office to a very high standard. Typically we only see mice from the usual suspects (Razer, Logitech, Steel Series), but sometimes we get a chance to take a look at a mouse from an up and coming manufacture. Today is one of those days. We are going to take a look at a mouse from Tek Republic designed for gaming. Being new to the market I am hoping to find a gem, or at least a few new ideas. The only way to find out is to put it through our testing and you know what that means right? I get to game and act like its work!"

Kingston HyperX 120GB Upgrade Kit SSD Review @ APH Networks
     Tue, Nov 29 2011 | 6:04P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you can`t beat them, join them. Some call that team stacking, others call it cowardly, but let me ask you a question: When has being the last one standing ever brought anyone victory? Indeed, in the business world, we just call this -- for a lack of better terms -- getting with the times. After all, being in business is just about making money, and it is important to make a product that sells well. In the past, Kingston has been stubbornly reluctant to slap on a SandForce controller in their SSDs, and by doing so, their drives never really made a significant impact in the enthusiast market. Well, this is all about to change. With the company`s latest Kingston HyperX solid state drive now equipped with the renowned SF-2281 SATA 6Gb/s controller, Intel NAND flash chips, and an extremely sleek exterior design, does it live up to the HyperX brand`s long legacy of cutting edge performance? To find out, we took in the moderately priced 120GB version in the upgrade kit form (Which includes an Acronis cloning program and an external USB enclosure for a price premium of $5-10 at press time), and slapped it through our usual battery of benchmarks. Let`s waste no time."

ASUS ENGTX 560 TI 448 DCII/2DIS/1280MD5 @ ocaholic
     Tue, Nov 29 2011 | 5:46P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today the information embargo regarding the NVIDIA GeForce GTX560 Ti 448 has ended. Like the name already suggests it features 448 shader cores and therefore offers performance quite close to the GTX 570. For this review we got a model from ASUS that features their powerful DirectCUII cooler. This means that we have the perfect basis to show what this chip can and what it can`t."
