Lexar Professional 2000x 128GB SDXC UHS-II/U3 Review
     Thu, Feb 11 2016 | 4:01P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Anyone that uses a high end DSLR or HD video camera knows that two factors that can mess up your day are the size and speed of the memory card. The last thing you want to do is have a shoot spoiled because the camera cannot get a burst of pictures onto a card or waste countless hours waiting to import the latest shoot. Now that 4K and 8K video are becoming the new standards a 32GB or 64GB card just will not do. Lexar worked hard to address both issues in the Professional 2000x 128GB DSXC UHS-II memory card...

SuperMicro C7Z170-OCE (LGA1151) Motherboard Review
     Thu, Feb 11 2016 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SuperMicro is one of the most respected names in the server industry and synonymous with unparalleled reliability. Whether you’re after a rackmount, blade server system or workstation motherboard, there’s nothing on the market which manages to enthuse such a sense of rock solid stability. Recently, the company has taken their server roots and impeccable reputation into enthusiast consumer motherboards. This allows them to retain the server framework while offering more ostentatious motherboard designs. Additionally, SuperMicro’s highly refined production line results in a low RMA rate and each product evokes such a premium feel. While their previous attempts have been a little rough around the edges, it’s clear to see the rapid progress in terms of motherboard layout and visual exuberance. Typically, motherboard manufacturers opt for the gaming themed red and black colour scheme because it caters towards the core demographic and maximize sales.

     Thu, Feb 11 2016 | 1:14P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The revamped Dell XPS 13 includes just a handful of improvements: a new Skylake CPU, a USB Type-C port that supports Thunderbolt 3, and the option to get the laptop in gold. But considering the Broadwell-based Dell XPS 13 was our favorite laptop of 2015, we just had to get in the new model and see if it's still a class-leading device.

PNY CS1311 SSD Review (120GB/480GB)
     Thu, Feb 11 2016 | 1:12P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yet again, we see a new entrant to the ultra-cheap, entry level SSD market. Aimed at those who are looking for a nice step up from a HDD, but have to pinch pennies, PNY has released a TLC packed contender, the CS1311. Designed to help speed up the computing experience for the everyday user, it isn’t the enthusiast class drive which we typically crave for, such as PNY’s CS2211 we just reviewed, but it is shouldn’t be overlooked simply due to the NAND it utilizes. With low price points and some decent performance numbers, the PNY CS1311 just might be one of the better TLC options out there. Let’s get on with the review and see how PNY’s latest SSD fairs!

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 Hybrid Gaming Video Card Review
     Thu, Feb 11 2016 | 1:11P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's hard to believe that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 is still a viable cutting edge graphics card today as it first debuted along with the GeForce GTX 980 in September 2014! Over the past 1.5 years the GeForce GTX 970 has become a very popular card for 1080P gaming as it features a competitive price point and you can more times than not get 60 FPS on average with the image quality cranked up in game titles. The add-in board (AIB) partners have continued to release new GeForce GTX 970 video cards over the years and just before 2015 ended our friends over at EVGA announced that the EVGA HYBRID line was being expanded to include GeForce GTX 970. This is great news for those that are concerned about GPU temperatures as you can now buy purchase a GTX 970 that features a maintenance free closed loop ‘all in one’ water cooling solution that significantly lowers the GPU operating temperature.

ASUS PB328Q
     Thu, Feb 11 2016 | 1:10P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For productivity and content creation users, the ASUS PB328Q makes a lot of sense. It's low cost, it has solid color reproduction both before and after custom calibration and it's viewing angles and high contrast blacks make it perfect for that environment. Is it going to be up to the level of some of the significantly higher priced professional displays, even from ASUS? Likely not, but for a third or less of the cost, I think the trade-offs are totally valid. For gamers though, it's a different story. With so many excellent gaming displays on the market, some offering variable refresh rates, at the same or just slightly higher prices, I can't get behind the recommendation. If you really love the idea of having a 32-in screen with a resolution your GPU can handle, then maybe you are willing to sacrifice overdrive performance and ghosting for that specific trait."
