Samsung SH100 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 11:32A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Samsung SH100 is a compact, point-and-shoot 14-megapixel digital camera that is cheap in price, but still offers good quality images. It has lots of shooting modes, wireless connectivity as well as a touchscreen display, but the lack of manual controls limits it use.?"

MSI X79A-GD65 (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 11:19A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI X79A-GD65 isn`t all that new to us, as earlier in the month we did a full preview on it. Today, though, we get to dive a little deeper into the board and cover some of the stuff we couldn`t at the time, including the BIOS and the latest rendition of ClickBIOS II. There`s not a lot more to say about it all really. With our MSI X79A-GD65 in hand and our beloved new Intel i7 3960X, we can get into the performance of the new board fairly quickly. Before we do, though, we`ll just throw up all the pictures of the board from our original preview if you didn`t already look at that, or simply can`t be bothered now. We`ll also cover the few things we couldn`t at launch including the PCIe layout and of course, the BIOS."

[Tech ARP] Western Digital Caviar Green (WD30EZRX) 3 TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive Review Rev. 1.1
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 10:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Western Digital divides their internal hard drives into three distinct families - the WD Caviar Blue for their basic hard drives, the WD Caviar Green for their quieter, cooler hard drives and the WD Caviar Black for their performance-grade hard drives. According to Western Digital, Caviar Green hard disk drives offer an average power saving of 4-5 watts over their competitors, a feat that they claim is equivalent to reducing CO2 emissions by 13.8 kg per year. Of course, that?s a mere drop in the ocean but if you can help save the environment while you work or play on your computer, why not? Today, we will look at the improved Western Digital Caviar Green 3 TB hard disk drive - the new Western Digital WD30EZRX with Advanced Format Technology and 6 Gbps interface. Let?s find out how well this drive performs! Here are the changes in this update : - Updated the Packaging section with clarification from Western Digital about the HighPoint Rocket 620 controller. - Removed the HighPoint Rocket 620 Controller section. - Updated the Conclusion."

SteelSeries Simraceway S1 Racing Wheel @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 10:08A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the most part SteelSeries has stuck to a fairly nitch market. Their products are normally mice, keyboard, headsets, and mouse pads. There have been a few products here and there that have broken that mold like their work with Gunner Glasses and a few products that carried over from their purchase of Ideazon. Surprisingly they recently introduced a new steering wheel, the S1. They worked together with Simraceway to enter into the wheel market. I say wheel because unlike every other product on the market, the S1 is simply JUST a wheel. There isn?t a pedal, gear shifter (other than paddle?s), or even mount for the wheel. With just a USB cord and an F1 inspired wheel between you and the game it?s a different solution, but will it work?"

[Tech ARP] Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1.5 TB Portable (USB 3.0) Hard Disk Drive Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 9:41A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex family, you can opt for the Seagate GoFlex Desk 3.5 external drive if you want the large storage capacity possible and do not mind a larger form factor. If you prefer a portable drive, then you can go with either the Seagate GoFlex or Seagate GoFlex Pro 2.5 external drives.

Samsung NX200 Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 9:04A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung`s latest entry in to the camera market is the very retro-styled Samsung NX200. Featuring a very sleek and attractive slimline design, as well as some fantastic features, the Samsung NX200 could prove to be one hell of a camera. However, with a retail price of over £500, do the features out-weigh the rather high price tag. Let`s take a closer look and find out..."

G.Skill RipjawsZ PC3-19200 16GB Kit Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 8:40A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PC3-19200 kit we`ve got here from G.Skill kind of completes the circle of RAM from the company. Originally at launch we found ourselves looking at a 16GB PC3-17000 kit , after that we checked out something a little lower end and cheaper in the form of a 16GB PC3-14900 kit. Today we kick it up a couple of notches with the PC3-19200 RipjawsZ kit from G.Skill and before we get into the kit, I want to check out the new package that`s present that we`re seeing with some of the higher end G.Skill kits. Looking closer again, we can see exactly what`s going on with the kit. As we`ve already mentioned a few times, we`re dealing with a PC3-19200 kit which translates into a massive 2400MHz DDR which continues to be the highest out of the box speed we`re seeing from companies at the moment for Quad Channel kits. On the timings side of things, they`re pretty relaxed at 11-11-11-31-1T @ 1.65v which is currently the most relaxed 2400MHz DDR kit we`ve seen to date with the other kits we`ve looked at coming in at CL10."

Lenovo IdeaCentre H330 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 7:47A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Lenovo IdeaCentre H330 is a budget machine that actually outperforms most other similar desktops in its category. It has a sub-$600 price and includes an Intel Core i3 CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 1.5TB hard drive. It also has a slim design, but with that slimness comes less room for future expansion.?"

Intel - It Was One Heck Of A Year For Sandy Bridge Graphics
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 6:36A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The year began with Intel launching their Sandy Bridge processors. While the CPU performance was very impressive for these latest-generation Intel processors, the graphics performance under Linux was a problem. The drivers were not ready in time. Well, they actually were technically available, but in Git source form and not easy for Linux desktop customers. There were also some initial hurdles in the Sandy Bridge Linux graphics support. However, over the past year, the Intel OSTC developers working on the open-source graphics support have dramatically improved the situation. As this article recaps the performance over the past year, Sandy Bridge is now rocking under Linux and Ivy Bridge is ready to go."

EVGA P67 FTW Motherboard Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 4:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EVGA P67 FTW motherboard is EVGA`s flagship entry for Sandy Bridge systems. The EVGA P67 FTW motherboard comes in two variants: the standard KR version and the premium K2 variant which is exactly like the KR except with the addition of the EVGA Control Panel V4 and EVGauge tachometer bundled. The EVGA P67 FTW inherits a lot of the features that made the P55 Classified 200 standout from the competition including extra 8-pin EPS12V power connectors for overclocking and 5 PCIE x16 slots but also adds UEFI, USB 3.0 and a Compact Flash port for extra storage. Built for overclocking, the EVGA P67 FTW has a 12-phase CPU PWM, uses 100% Solid Japanese capacitors and has a higher gold content on the CPU brushes for an overall lower inductance."

ASRock A75 Extreme 6 and A55 Pro 3 @ PureOverclock

Posted by: STAFF
We have our hands on two of the new ASRock A series motherboards, named the A75 Extreme 6 and A55 Pro 3. They`re very similar in their features and capabilities, but do have some distinct differences that can appeal to a range of needs. Both come with fantastic prices so let`s waste no time and dive into both motherboards and see the ASRock trend continue."

Patriot Pyro SE 120GB & 240GB Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 1:47A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The switch to synchronous MLC flash memory has driven the performance up to the point where it is giving the Patriot Wildfire that uses Toshiba 32nm Toggle mode flash a run for its money. Performance wise the Pyro SE (Special Edition) drives are meant to bridge the gap between the performance of the original Pyro and the upper end Wildfire. Fortunately the SE drives deliver Wildfire + performance in many of the tests. The specifications for these drives include 550MB/s Read, 520MB/s write and 4K aligned random write performance of 85,000 IOPs. Both the 120GB and 240GB Pyro SE drives reached or exceeded the specifications during testing. This really is the expectation for drives in this class."

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Shock Spin Gaming Headset Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Dec 11 2011 | 11:18A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake has a new addition to the gamer audio market with the Tt eSPORTS Shock Spin gaming headset. The Shock Spin puts a bit of style in the mundane headset market. Amongst the Shock Spin`s looks are some good features as well. Driving the sound are two neodymium magnet speakers for enhanced performance. There is an optional in line volume controller. Instead of an attached mic on the Shock Spin, it is included separately. For comfort there is an auto adjusting rubber head strap and ergonomic shaped velvet ear cushions. The input is a 3.5mm connector which means it can be used with compatible devices as well as the computer. Thermaltake offers 3 colors; Shining White, Diamond Black, an Royal Red."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
