Dell Inspiron 14z Notebook Review: A Portable Workhorse
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 2:30P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 14z may not be all that thin, but for most users it will prove to be an excellent laptop. In fact, this is the perfect laptop for anyone who is considering an inexpensive 15.6? laptop, but would like better battery life - without paying much of a price in terms of performance or, well, price. At $749, our Core i5 equipped unit is a bit expensive, but the $599 Core i3 basic model (which still comes with a 6-cell battery, but not with the backlit keyboard) is a bargain and, if it were my money, would be the one to buy. In most situations the performance gap won?t be noticeable, and the fundamentally good battery life and pleasurable chassis remains the same. "

Thermaltake Armor A30 Case Review
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 1:15P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many Lanparty cases have this low box like structure to them, but most look very plane and boring. The Armor A30 instantly looks like a strong system from first glance; it just has the gamer look to it which always makes other people think that you "MUST" be packing something heavy equipment in there. With its LED blue lights and sharp edgy looks. Many of the big developers are now using a specific name and theme to their products lately, which are names like Amor, and Enforcer and so on, I wouldn't be surprised if next week one came out called Grenade. It refers to what the big games are all about these days, modern warfare. This technique does seem to be working on us all though, we all take interest in some names as hardcore as Amor.

2-bay high speed network attached storage unit
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 1:14P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Thecus have been been around for several years, focusing on the production of NAS and other network/storage devices. The N2200XXX is one of their latest offerings – a two bay NAS aimed at SOHO/Home users with a need for high performance storage… hence the triple-x name, which stands for “eXtreme Power, eXtreme Function and eXtreme Value”. The NAS is based on the 1.8Ghz dual-core Intel Atom D525 and 1GB of DDR3 RAM, so it has the potential to be a speedy bit of kit. Both 3.5” and 2.5” drives fit in to the drive trays, allowing for hot-swappable RAID 1 and 0 configurations (or just JBOD if you want to maximise storage)."

Patriot Torqx 2 256GB Solid State Drive Review
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Back in May we previewed the Patriot Torqx 2 120GB solid state drive and found that it offered average mainstream performance that was better than the large OEM system builder solutions. In short, that was code for saying the 120GB model sucked for enthusiasts, but then again, this isn't an enthusiast SSD. The Torqx 2 did offer low access times that were a lot less than platter drives, so Twitface and web surfers still get the SSD feel, but only see small performance increases when transferring data. After Patriot released the Torqx 2, they followed it up with the 2011 flagship WildFire that uses a SandForce SF-2281 controller and synchronous flash, and then the Pyro that uses the same SandForce SF-2281 controller, but paired it with asynchronous flash. The price difference between the Pyro and the Torqx 2 at the time of writing is very small, so that leads us to wonder what Patriot is planning to do with the Torqx 2 and the long established Torqx Series of products all together."

MEGATechNews checks out a very affordable media player with a lot of features... MEGATech Reviews ? Pivos AIOS HD Media Center A full-blown home theater PC can introduce so much entertainment and functionality to your living, but it?s not for everyone. There is some added complexity, to be sure, not to mention the added cost. Regular media players have tried to overcome both of these obstacles, but they?re still not quite the same thing. "

Gigabyte Z68X-UD4-B3 Review
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Z68X-UD4-B3 Gigabyte presents its midrange model regarding Intels Z68 chipset. The board itself comes with the new color scheme as well as a long feature list of which for example a 16 phase power design is part of. For us this is reason enough to take a closer look at this board in order to show what it can and what it can't.

Shure SRH550DJ Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 11:59A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Intended for disc jockeys and home studio engineers, Shure`s SRH550DJ is an affordable entry-level headphone pair. At $125, the SRH550DJ is less expensive than some more-hyped DJ-oriented models, like the Beats Pro by Dr. Dre From Monster. The SRH550DJ is quite similar to Shure`s less expensive headphone pair with the primary difference being earcups that easily twist away from the ear, and a slightly deeper bass response.?"

Nikon Coolpix P300 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 11:31A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Nikon Coolpix P300 is a 12-megapixel digital camera that offers a very wide-aperture lens for its class and also gives users control with both manual aperture and shutter controls. It has really good low-light image quality, but it lacks manual focus and RAW shooting, which may disappoint some users.?"

GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2 (Intel X79) Motherboard Preview
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 11:19A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`m a big fan of the G1 series from GIGABYTE. I get that some of the design decisions aren`t for everyone, but the bottom line is that in the feature department the G1 series are one of the most stacked series on the market. With more and more people pulling away from separate sound and networking cards, the addition of high end components in these areas on board are appreciated. The latest addition to the G1 series from GIGABYTE comes in the form of the new G1.Assassin 2 and of course carries the much anticipated X79 chipset that we`ve been waiting for what feels like forever now. While we`re still just a little bit out from NDA, there`s as usual a lot of things we can`t tell you when it comes to the performance side of things, nor can we tell you some of the particular technologies implemented on the board."

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.
