Samsung SMX-F50 Camcorder
     Mon, Jun 06 2011 | 4:03P | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you walk into an electronics store it won't take but ten minutes to see that high definition is now everywhere. You can only buy high definition TVs, high definition camcorders are over abundant, computer monitors are now taking on standard high definition resolutions, and even our tiny smartphones are going HD! Despite all this, there is still a small market of standard definition products to be found out there. Why? Older technology is cheap and can help you save a dime on a tight budget. Here today I have one of Samsung's latest standard definition camcorders, the SMX-F50."

     Mon, Jun 06 2011 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today I have one of the highest end 80PLUS Gold power supplies I have handled recently on my bench - the OCZ ZX 850W. The ZX series is OCZ's highest range of performance power supplies - built with quality, performance and efficiency in mind. It's time to see if the extra investment in this high end power supply will be worth the money over the more budget minded 80PLUS Gold models that have crossed my bench prior to this model."

OCZ Agility 3 240GB SSD Review
     Sun, Jun 05 2011 | 5:14P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we are looking at a drive which OCZ hope will find a slightly more value orientated place in the market, the Agility 3. Based on the same controller as the Vertex 3 range we still get the same great features however the other internal components have been tweaked slightly. We will be putting the drive through a selection of tests to find out how it compares to one of the main competitors, the Intel 510 Series."

Duke Nukem Forever Game Review
     Sun, Jun 05 2011 | 5:13P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"So it's here... finally... the long awaited (12+ years??!) "new" Duke Nukem game. It has been said that no game could live up to the hype generated in that time and that is probably true however that doesn't mean Duke Nukem Forever couldn't be good... an enjoyable nostalgic blast."

     Sun, Jun 05 2011 | 5:12P | Cases | PermaLink

"Last autumn we took a look at a new mid-tower case from Corsair, the 600T. We were very impressed with the design, build quality and performance of this case. Never a company to rest on their laurels Corsair recently release a special edition version of the 600T case, this time in white. Let's find out if the special edition white 600T is just as good as the original, or if Corsair has managed to improve it."

Cubitek HPTX-Tank
     Sun, Jun 05 2011 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cubitek joins the ranks of Lian Li and Xigmatek with their HPTX-Tank chassis, which is one of three cases on the market capable of holding huge motherboards like the EVGA SR-2. With an unbelievable price tag for an Aluminum chassis, we take a close look to see if it manages to redefine the price / performance segment for such enclosures.

SteelSeries 6Gv2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
     Sat, Jun 04 2011 | 5:20P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For quite some time the gaming keyboard market has concentrated on products which add macro buttons, re-assignments, profiles, USB and audio pass-through and weighted key actions to enhance the gaming experience. In addition to this we see branded products such as the Razer StarCraft 2 gear and SteelSeries Medal of Honor products however few manufacturers have looked to release high quality mechanical keyboards for the gaming masses."

Section 8: Prejudice Review
     Sat, Jun 04 2011 | 5:20P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In 2009 TimeGate Studios released a first person shooter called Section 8 which gained a decent online following thanks to a good multi-player experience. The follow up features refinements to the multi-player and a new single player campaign but the twist is that this is a download only title (for 360/PS3 and PC) which costs £9.99/$15 rather than the £30-40 or $50 that most new titles launch at."

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.
