 [LATEST]  InWin 303 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
InWin has quickly become the masters of chassis design, after a string of successes with their high-end and award-winning chassis products over the last couple of years. However, despite their impressive design, the major issue has been price, as InWin’s flagship cases often cost well into the triple digits, but when you’re crafting a huge chassis out of premium grade aluminium and tempered glass, they’re never going to be affordable. InWin is well aware of this fact and now they’re taking a shot at the sub £100 market by ditching the aluminium in favour of steel, but keeping the tempered glass so not to spoil their premium aspirations.

OCZ RD400 NVMe SSD Review (256GB/512GB/1TB)
     Thu, May 26 2016 | 6:38P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
More MB/s, more IOPS, and lower latencies are what storage enthusiasts dream of. CPUs, RAM, and GPUs are all pushing faster speeds than ever, but storage has typically been a bottleneck for enthusiasts, even after the introduction of SSDs. To enable faster speeds bus bandwidth has been increased over the years and storage has started to migrate onto the PCIe bus so that it is closer to the CPU. With the latest flash technology, protocols have even had to be rewritten to keep up as well. In the past two years Non-Volatile, Memory Express, or NVMe, has replaced AHCI protocol and is now common speak among storage enthusiasts. Thanks to the launch of the Intel 750, the first consumer NVMe product, more and more people have been demanding NVMe products for their systems. With the ability to deliver multiple GB/s read and write speeds as well as hundreds of thousands of IOPS due to great reductions of latency and overhead, we here at The SSD Review can't help but think, who wouldn't want this type of speed?

Corsair Lapdog Review
     Thu, May 26 2016 | 6:37P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Lapdog is grandly described as a ‘Gaming Control Centre’, however that doesn’t explain things very well as Lapdog is unlike anything we have seen before. The idea is that you have your gaming PC (ideally a Corsair Bulldog) next to your TV and sit on your sofa with Corsair keyboard and mouse all ready to frag ’em up in a first person shooter. But where do you put the mouse and keyboard? Take a look at our video and you will see how Lapdog answers that particular question.

TP-LINK Neffos C5L Smartphone Review
     Thu, May 26 2016 | 6:37P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Neffos C5L was mainly designed for people which do not want to spend a lot when purchasing a smartphone and its dimensions are ideal in a market which is flooded with phablets. The back shooter can produce good quality photos to be used online and the interface has been simplified so anyone can take a photo with ease. We are not talking about “another” MTK smartphone this time, but incorporates a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 SoC along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory; if this storage space is not enough for us, then we can supplement with up to 32GB via microSDHC cards."

Corsair Gaming K70 RGB RapidFire keyboard review
     Thu, May 26 2016 | 6:36P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair Gaming outs their all new RapidFire K70 cherry MX mechanical keyboard with RGB LEDs. The K70 RGB RapidFire is the successor of the REGULAR K70 in terms of the overall basis and concept, but it adds RGB lighting per key configurable with full RGB LED lit keys that can be animated and profiles. Also the keyboard uses a new type of Cherry switches, ready for some keyboard madness ?

Thecus N5810 PRO NAS Review
     Thu, May 26 2016 | 6:36P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thecus N5810 PRO is a NAS with five lockable drives bays, an LCD display and a USB 3.0 port that looks impressive from the front. Turn to the rear of the NAS and it starts to look awesome as there are two more USB 3.0 ports, five Gigabit Ethernet and if you look closely you will spot the battery UPS.

Intel Core i5-6600K vs Core i5-2500K - 2D Performance
     Thu, May 26 2016 | 6:35P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a variety of customer groups in need of as much processing power as possible. Especially in the field of content creation, which includes editing pictures and videos or even rendering a complex scenery with beautiful effects, performance improvements quickly translate into higher income by the end of the month. With this series of articles we're going to compare two processors. The CPUs tested are being run at stock clocks as well as overclocked and apart from that we will also vary the memory frequency. It is our goal to show which CPU is how much faster or slower than another one.

Shuttle XPC Cube Barebone SZ170R8 Review
     Thu, May 26 2016 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the SZ170R8, Shuttle has eliminated some of the compatibility with somewhat unused hardware nowadays like optical drives and made some serious space for installing no less than four 3.5’’ drives inside the 14.2 litre chassis. A fan was also added in front in order to cool these but also for facilitating a more fluent airflow from the front to the back of the case; the case does support installation of up to 64GB of RAM (DDR4, 2133MHz), a dual-slot video card (which can be powered by one 6-pin and one 8-pin PSU connector), a M.2 SSD, an optional Wireless LAN card, a COM-port for special applications but also 2.5’’ drives with an extra adapter."

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.
