AMD Radeon HD 6450 Graphics Card Review
     Wed, Apr 13 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier in the week we took a look at AMD (and Sapphires) new midrange DirectX 11 GPU and commented at the time that the refresh of lower end parts from 5000 to 6000 series was taking some time. The 6790 filled the gap in the 6000 series at around £110 which left the sub £100 mark to populate and today we get a taste of one model that AMD has to offer in that area with a look at the 6450 which will hit retail in a couple of weeks time."

HTC Thunderbolt
     Wed, Apr 13 2011 | 12:02P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today for review I’ve got the fastest phone on the market, the HTC Thunderbolt for Verizon Wireless. Well it’s fast in terms of network speeds since it uses the new 4G network, the phone itself is fast as well with it’s 1Ghz CPU. The Thunderbolt is from HTC so it’s a quality made phone as we’ve come to expect from them. The phone though honestly is rather vanilla, it’s like most other Android phone on the market, yes it’s fast and nicely made but if it wasn’t for the 4G the Thunderbolt wouldn’t really stand out at all in terms of how it works and other features.

Cooler Master Spawn gaming mouse
     Wed, Apr 13 2011 | 12:01P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master has released a long line of successful peripherals in their Storm-branded gaming range but they have played it safe by going after mass market appeal. The Spawn gaming mouse on the other hand caters to a specific group of gamers who prefer to "claw grip" their mice while retaining the great price structure Cooler Master has been known for.

AMD Radeon HD 6790 Review
     Wed, Apr 13 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“AMD is adding another card to round-out their 6700 series selection: the Radeon HD 6790. It is aimed performance/upper mid-range market and will be retailing for $149. It’s supposed to lie between the 6850 and 5770/6770 in terms of performance and compete with the NVIDIA Geforce GTX 550Ti. Including all of the features common to other 6700 series cards, like 16 render back-end units, this should offer a great 1080p gaming experience for consumers."

AMD Radeon HD6870 Review
     Wed, Apr 13 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you’re remotely interested in computers, you’ll know who AMD are. It’s no surprise when you consider they’ve been around since 1969(!), so they need no introduction. Odds are that you’ll also be familiar with the Radeon brand of graphics cards, so today’s review product and company should be known to everyone."

TechwareLabs Review: Nexus Silent Mouse
     Tue, Apr 12 2011 | 9:18P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are lot of things to consider when buying a new mouse. Most look at comfort first. Others will look at DPI and polling and all sorts of fancy gaming stuff. But have you ever considered noise? Well the guys over at Nexus have. Here we have the Nexus Silent Mouse. It`s silent. As in no clicking sound. The idea is that professionals and noise haters can work in piece and quiet without that obnoxious clicking sound to distract them (they specifically mention TV and Music studios). If silence is what you`re after read on for a more in depth look at the Nexus Silent Mouse."

StarTech eSATA Standalone Duplicator Dock - SATDOCK22RE
     Tue, Apr 12 2011 | 4:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The tools in my toolbox are just as important as the IT skills I have learned over the years. After all, what good is the knowledge to accomplish something without the means to do so? That is why my arsenal of tools in my office is as important to me and my customers as is paint and a canvas to a painter. When companies like StarTech start offering tools that can accomplish more than one task and do them all well, it not only saves me time, it reduces the amount of "crap" I have all over the place. StarTech has already impressed me with their S354UFER, let's see if they can keep me tuned in with their SATDOCK22RE.

Thermaltake BlacX 5G USB 3.0 Hard Drive Dock
     Tue, Apr 12 2011 | 4:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thermaltake BlacX hard drive dock line has certainly been around for awhile, and while they have met with varying levels of success they are usually a decent option for many consumers. Thermaltake's latest addition to their venerable BlacX line - the BlacX 5G - is not only USB 3.0 enabled but can accept 2.5" and 3.5" SATA hard drives regardless of their capability including SATA 6GB/s enabled drives. This certainly sounds like the makings of not only a pretty "future proof" USB 3.0 hard drive dock but also pretty darn good one too! Let's see how good a performer this dock really is and if it can live up to the BlacX name. Read on to find out in my full review.

G1 uses Cherry MX Black
     Tue, Apr 12 2011 | 4:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At first glance the Thermaltake eSPORTS Meka G1 we have under the review spotlight is much ado about nothing: it looks about as basic as keyboards can get, yet is heavier than even the most basic keyboard you've probably ever used, and it has a relatively short USB cable to boot. It's what you don't immediately see that sets the Meka G1 apart from your everyday keyboard. Based on traditional mechanical keyboards, the G1 uses Cherry MX Black mechanical keyswitches for each of its keys for improved tactile response and serious long-term durability. Thermaltake promises these enhancements will make the Meka G1 well suited for the product's target audience: gamers. See if the mechanics under the hood are worth the fuss in our latest keyboard review!
