Kingston HyperX Cloud Headset Review
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Kingston has been a name we have come to know in the PC industry, especially with system memory products. However, with the growing number of PC peripherals and accessories, it was only a matter of time before Kingston started to tap their brand cache and jump into this arena too. With the e-sports crowd growing in popularity, Kingston saw an opportunity. They created a division called “HyperX.” Under the HyperX branding, Kingston is now developing accessories and peripherals to feed this growing group. This new HyperX Cloud Headset is one of those products. Let’s put it to the test and see how well it holds up against the competition.”

ANDROMEDIA AM Bluetooth Speakers Review
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Lately small wireless Bluetooth speakers are becoming the rage. I see them popping up everywhere, and to my amazement they exhibit the sound quality you would normally expect to find on much larger speakers. Moreover, they are great for most portable devices like cellphones, laptops, and tablets, making them easy to carry and perfect for the office or while relaxing at the beach, parks, or camping. Today we are looking at four such speakers from Andromedia: the Golf, Supersonic-P, Supersonic-X, and the Curve-mini. These speakers are designed for laptops, cell phones, and tablets alike, but before we jump in here’s a word about Andromedia.”

PowerColor Radeon R9 285 2GB Review @HiTech Legion
     Sat, Sep 20 2014 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"However, the performance is along the same lines as the R9 280 in actual tests, so unless you really need to have one of the additional features there is no need to upgrade from a 280. If you were considering purchasing a new card or an upgrade for an old/lower end graphics card, then you certainly should consider the R9 285."

T Ultrastar He6 6TB SAS HDD Review
     Sat, Sep 20 2014 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I've been using computers for almost 25 years now (14 of which professionally) and if someone asked me to choose a single hardware component that hasn't changed even a bit in terms of functionality since the day i ordered my very first system that would definitely be mechanical hard disk drives. Since 1989 I’ve used and tested well over 100 models (both consumer and enterprise ones) with capacities ranging from just a few Megabytes and up to several Terabytes but with the exception of SSDs and SSHDs (which is basically a marriage of both technologies) i can't say that the way HDDs function has changed, not really anyways. HGST took a step towards changing that roughly a year ago when they announced the upcoming Ultrastar He6 line of enterprise oriented hard disk drives and today after quite a bit of wait we finally have the SAS 6Gb/s variant with us.

Posted by: STAFF
The new Apotop S3C SSD features the Silicon Motion 2246EN controller which we first reviewed in the Angelbird 512GB wrk SSD back in August this year. The controller impressed us, so we have already high hopes for the Apotop S3C.

Seasonic Platinum Series SS-1050W XP3 Review
     Sat, Sep 20 2014 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the SS-1050W XP3 Seasonic has a high end power supply in its portfolio which offers 1050 Watt output power. When looking for an 80Plus certificate one can find a platinum sticker on this PSU. Furthremore Seasonic is one of the very few power supply manufacturers, that actually own fabs. Therefore they don't need to rely on OEM channels. We're already really curious to see what this 210 Euro power supply is capable of

MDIAS Hades Extension Laser Gaming Mouse Review
     Sat, Sep 20 2014 | 12:02P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Finding the right peripheral for your personal gaming or work needs is a tricky task, it’s not like we can all just order a dozen premium quality gaming mice and work out which one is our favourite; unless you’ve got a lot of time and money to waste. To solve this trial and error conundrum, GAMDIAS have created the HADES Extension Laser Gaming Mouse; a typical high-end gaming mouse that’s packed full of features, but with a few extra tricks up its sleeves. This mouse is not only ambidextrous, but you can literally change its shape and size to better suit your own personal needs and taste. GAMDIAS may be relatively new to the gaming market, but they’ve already earned themselves a solid reputation for creating unique products that are packed full of premium features and performance. The GAMDIAS Hermes mechanical keyboard and the Hephaestus gaming headset which we reviewed recently were both very impressive; so I’m hoping to see similarly impressive performance from the HADES.

Antec Edge 650W Modular Power Supply Review
     Sat, Sep 20 2014 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today Antec are unveiling a brand new power supply series which they are calling the “Edge” series. Some of the key features of the Antec Edge power supply series are a fully modular design, 80 Plus Gold certification, Antec’s respected 5 year warranty, custom rubber sleeving and quiet operation. That all sounds very good doesn’t it? Antec have clearly been listening to end user feedback because on paper the Edge 650W looks like a perfect power supply for the majority of enthusiast PC users. If we compare the Edge to Antec’s High Current Gamer series we can see obvious improvements in noise and aesthetics and compared to the High Current Pro series we can see obvious improvements in pricing. The Antec Edge 650 has a competitive price tag of $129.99 MSRP, so let’s find out if it has the performance as well!

Posted by: STAFF
Recently we had the opportunity to look at Phanteks low cost full tower case, the Enthoo Pro. Now, Phanteks is following up with a higher end Enthoo model, the Luxe. There are similarities between the Pro and Luxe, along with multiple differences. Phanteks takes care in making sure that the features the enthusiasts want in a case are provided; this includes multiple cooling options, ranging from air cooling to liquid cooling. Then Phanteks goes a step further and adds features to make their cases stand out. Read on to see what they did!

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
