The Ugliest ASUS ROG Tytan CG8890 Computer in History - yikes!!
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 3:23P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Reading Hardware UK's write up on this ASUS Tytan PC system made it sound pretty cool... but once their review loaded, I was greated by what has to be the UGLIEST computer chassis I've seen in a long time.

www.pcstats.com

To quote Homer Simpson; "Now what I'm with isn't *it*, and what's *it* seems weird and scary to me."

www.pcstats.com
"ASUS pulled out all the stops for this system. Its imposing look matches the impressive hardware inside. And then there is the special 'speed' button on top of the chassis. Press that, and the case literally starts moving. Sides will open up, fans will appear, blue lights turn red, and all that's missing is that trademark Transformer sound. The computer then also engages a turbo mode. It's a sight to behold."

HGST Touro Mobile Pro 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 2:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Only 25 or so days before we go dark for our much anticipated Christmas vacations (which shouldn`t last more than 10 days in total) and so we decided to mainly focus on reviews requested by some of you during the last 2 months. Needless to say we are already testing quite a few gaming peripherals for the past 2 weeks so there isn`t really much time for anything else that requires time and effort to test, however since the primary concern of most of you have been 2.5 portable hard disk drives (much easier/faster to test) we gathered quite a few of the latest USB 3.0 models here to see which delivers the most bang for your buck. The first of those portable USB 3.0 HDDs is no other than the latest Touro Mobile Pro 500GB by HGST."

GIGABYTE Brings HDMI and DVI to Value Segment Motherboard
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 1:44P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

GIGABYTE today launched its latest HD series motherboards, bringing dual digital display support, including HDMI and DVI, to a range of value segment motherboard models. The new GIGABYTE HD motherboard series defies the current ethos that means true digital display outputs are reserved for upper mainstream models, adding both HDMI and DVI ports to a range of motherboard models at attractive and affordable price points. All DIY enthusiasts can now enjoy true HD display capability using the most commonly integrated digital output technologies on today’s HD displays and TVs.

www.pcstats.com“The new GIGABYTE HD motherboard series means our customers can get much more bang-per-buck from their value segment motherboards,” commented Henry Kao, Vice President of GIGABYTE Motherboard Business Unit. “Adding dual digital display ports to this segment really sets GIGABYTE apart from the competition, raising the bar for value segment motherboard design.” 

Digital output technologies like HDMI are becoming the de-facto standard on most HDTVs and PC monitors, with the advantage of carrying both HD audio* and video signals over a single cable. As well as offering higher screen resolutions than analog display outputs, digital display outputs also offer support for the latest 3D media content as well as access to protected content via HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection). Having access to dual digital displays is also a great way to increase productivity, offering much more on-screen real-estate than entry-level motherboards typically provide. GIGABYTE HD series motherboards are ideal for a range of business, office and education scenarios where adding an additional digital display or projector is paramount.

GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 Classic

GIGABYTE HD series motherboards integrate GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 Classic technology with built-in features that prevent common malfunction threats. Protection against humidity, electrostatic damage, power failure and high-temperatures is achieved using a range of technologies and features including glass fabric PCB technology, Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs, anti-surge ICs, solid capacitors and GIGABYTE Dual BIOS™. You learn more about GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 Classic technology here: http://www.gigabyte.us/microsite/297/images/overview.html

GIGABYTE HD series motherboards span both Intel® 2nd and 3rd generation Core™ and AMD A-Series platforms, creating a range of highly affordable, yet digitally proficient motherboards. The models include: GA-Z77-HD4,  GA-Z77-HD3,  GA-B75M-HD3 and for AMD: GA-F2A85XM-HD3 and GA-F2A55M-HD2 motherboards.

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.
