Supreme Full Color Illumination Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Sun, Aug 24 2014 | 11:53P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many attempts have been made in the past from several manufacturers to change the concept behind the keyboard but when you try to change something that has been used by 100% of both PC and MAC users for several decades then the odds are obviously against you. Because of that manufacturers decided to further improve the keyboard instead rather than try and replace it with something else entirely and as you all know the result of that was the introduction of the much sturdier mechanical switches that offered better tactile and audible feedback. However although mechanical switches alone are what professionals around the world look for in a keyboard the same is not the case for gamers who are always on the lookout for something unique to place on their desks. Tesoro may not be one of the old players in the market but they know very well what gamers want and their latest Lobera Supreme Full Color Illumination Mechanical Gaming Keyboard which we have here with us today may actually have what it takes to become one of the best-selling models of 2014.

BIOS Option Of The Week - Boot To OS/2.
     Sun, Aug 24 2014 | 11:52P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Older versions of IBM's OS/2 operating system use the BIOS function Int15 [AX=E801] to detect the size of installed system memory. Microsoft Windows, on the other hand, uses the BIOS function Int15 [EAX=0000E820]. However, the Int15 [AX=E801] function was later scrapped as not ACPI-compliant. As a result, OS/2 cannot detect the correct size of system memory if more than 64 MB of memory is installed. Microsoft Windows isn't affected because the BIOS function it uses is ACPI-compliant. This BIOS feature is designed to correct the memory size detection problem for OS/2 systems that have..."

This Preserver Series case aims to be the ultimate protection for your Smartphone as it`s waterproof up to 2 m or 6.6 feet deep for up to 30 minutes, along with many other protection features OtterBox is known for.

Sapphire Tri-X R9-290X Review @ Vortez
     Sun, Aug 24 2014 | 10:32A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All hail the Sapphire TRI-X. It aims to put right everything AMD did wrong and from the outset you can see that the custom cooler certainly looks like it means business with the three fans (hence the TRI-X branding) and funky aesthetics. Add to this a factory overclock and the Sapphire card looks to be a very attractive proposition."

OCZ ARC 100 240GB SATA SSD Full Review - Barefoot 3 M10 on the cheap
     Sun, Aug 24 2014 | 7:43A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ ARC 100 is the most cost effective packaging of the Indilinx M10 controller to date. While meant to be a low cost value solution, users would be unlikely to tell the difference in speed when compared to the more expensive Vertex 460. Recent competitive solutions have been pushing below $0.50/GB, and OCZ has launched the ARC 100 right on that very line, making it their lowest cost/GB launch ever. Finally, OCZ`s new ShieldPlus Warranty program is a refreshing and welcome addition, and might very well be the thing that sways customers towards the ARC. If the reliability proves true and the prices stay low, the ARC is likely to become a drive I recommend to value conscious upgraders and budget system builders alike."

Brinell Single-Action Stick 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Sun, Aug 24 2014 | 4:27A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past several jewelry makers have tried (quite unsuccessfully if you ask me) to enter the PC Peripherals market by releasing various products which can also attract the female gender. Most of them however have focused in the design and manufacture of very expensive USB flash drives and just by taking a quick look on Google you can find quite a few that cost well up to $35k. Of course all of those attempts failed for two reasons (well aside the price obviously) storage capacity and design. I mean who in their right mind would purchase a USB flash drive that is shaped like an egg or a mushroom and has sparkling diamonds and rubies all over it (perhaps girls would if they could afford it)? Now I?ve always looked for something special since carrying a USB flash drive around means that people will get to see it but to date aside the usual tiny models made out of Zinc alloy i haven`t really found anything to peak my interest. Brinell may actually change that since with us today we have their award winning Single-Action Stick 128GB USB 3.0 flash drive."

Thermaltake Urban T81 Full Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Aug 23 2014 | 3:53P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the past few years Thermaltakes cases have sort of been mainstream, appealing to pretty much anyone who wants a case. While this may or may not be the best thing other case companies have been really becoming popular with enthusiast builders out there. At CES this past January Thermaltake told us that they were going to be returning to their roots with some of their new cases, making these cases specifically for builders, modders and enthusiasts. Today we are taking a looking at the Urban T81 Full Tower which features a dual-swing door design, full modular drive concept, three 200 mm and a 140 mm fans included and the sleek design that you expect from Thermaltakes Urban Series. Will this case impress? Read on as we find out!"

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.
