A quick turn of your wrist and you can check a myriad of things limited only by the ever expanding available android wear applications. This review will be a bit different from others I have done in the past as it will reflect my real life purchase of the LG G Watch R and the facts and experience that led to the decision. I hope it will help you when making your decision for a smart watch.

Asus X99-Deluxe
     Sat, Jan 31 2015 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back when we got our hands on the Asus X99-Deluxe four our Intel X99 platform review, we were impressed enough with the motherboard to take a closer look at it in its own feature today. The X99-Deluxe is certainly a deluxe motherboard with tremendous potential, at least when paired to right (and equally expensive) hardware.

Rapoo V900 Review
     Sat, Jan 31 2015 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the V900, Rapoo has a gaming mouse in its portfolio, which is suitable for right handed gamers and apart from that the rodent comes with a high-res laser sensor from PixArt. There is also a customizable backlight as well as programmable buttons. At a first glance also the design is looking good and at this point we're rather curious to see whether Rapoo is able to convince us with this product or not.

MSI`s new GeForce GTX 960 Gaming comes overclocked out of the box. Just like previous MSI Gaming cards, the board runs extremely quiet, emitting almost no noise in gaming and it also turns off its fans in idle. With a price of $200, MSI has chosen to follow the NVIDIA reference design pricing."

Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier this week I showed benchmarks of AMD's incredible year for their open-source Linux driver and how the open-source Radeon Gallium3D driver moved closer to performance parity with Catalyst. One of the lingering questions though is how does the Catalyst 14.12 Omega Linux driver from December compare to the latest Catalyst Windows driver? Here's some benchmarks looking at the latest open and closed-source drivers on Linux compared to the latest Catalyst Windows release."

ASUS X99-E WS Motherboard
     Fri, Jan 30 2015 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has many models of X99 shipping and one particular model that always interests me is the WS series of boards as they are tested to be enterprise class and then some with max capacity and normally extended connectivity along with component MTBF ratings that most desktop boards cannot even dream about. Today we have one of those very models based on LGA 2011-V3 based on the X99 chipset but it is considered a Server/Workstation product. This board boasts some really awesome slot lane allocations thanks to dual bridge chips and excellent overall component choice so lets dig in and see what we are getting.

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.
