Borderlands 2 Review
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 7:54P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Borderlands 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the sleeper hit of 2009, Borderlands, developed by GearBox Software. The original Borderlands initially flew under many people’s radar as 2009 was a year that saw the pending release of heavy hitters such as Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Left 4 Dead 2, Assassins Creed 2 and, Call of Duty 2 (A-lot of “twos” that year). There was also a game that was similar in setting, and to some degree game play, that many wanted to get their hands on announced a year prior. That game was called Rage. It didn’t help GearBox Software’s cause that the developer of Rage was the same developer many accredit for the birth of the modern first person shooter genre, ID Software headed by John Carmack. The fact that Rage showcased stunning visuals, and AI that was intelligent enough not to just stand around, and just be bullet sponges was enough to make many want the game in their hands as soon as possible. But to be honest we at TechReaction.net, even though joining the Rage bandwagon, did keep our eyes out for Borderlands as the earlier trailers for Borderlands, and game demos caught our attention. Take a look below to see why.

Samsung Series 7 All-in-one PC 700A3D review
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 6:54P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung has already established it can design a good-looking TV, and that expertise has now been applied to all-in-one PCs. The Samsung Series 7 All-in-One PC 700A3D is a special computer. You can operate it with keyboard and mouse, the touchscreen and even (less successfully) by hand gestures. Plus you also get a remote.

ROCCAT KONE Pure Gaming Mouse @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 5:54P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those of you out there that are looking for a nice basic but high spec gaming mouse, the ROCCAT KONE Pure - Core Performance Gaming Mouse might well be just right for you. By stripping away some of the gimmicks and not so useful features of the KONE[+], ROCCAT have been able to build a sleek beast with the KONE Pure and here at Benchmark Reviews we aim to test it to its fullest. First of all it is smaller than both the KONE[+] and the KONE XTD, and it also does away with the LED strips and weight adjustment system, leaving a gaming peripheral that is a great pleasure to use. The KONE Pure uses the same Omron switches and R3 Pro-Aim laser sensor found in the KONE XTD but lovingly packs them into a more compact package. Think of the KONE Pure as more of a brother than a replacement to the KONE XTD and KONE[+].

NVIDIA Unveils GRID Servers, Next-Gen Tegra 4 SoC
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 4:54P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA made some bold moves at their CES 2013 press conference and announced a couple of potentially game changing products. CEO Jen-Hsun Huang spent a little more than 90 minutes talking to a captive audience at the press conference, which was held at the posh Palms Hotel. He used the first couple of segments to show off the GeForce Experience utility, which launched in beta form a few weeks back, and the GeForce GRID server platform, but closed the show with Tegra 4 and the hot Project SHEILD mobile gaming device...

Samsung 840 Pro 128GB RAID SSD Review
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A very short time ago we reviewed Samsung’s newest flagship the 840 Pro. The capacity we chose was 128GB because it had yet to be widely reviewed. Well, we’re back at it again and this time we’re serving up the 128GB 840 Pro in RAID 0 as only RWL can. A single 128GB 840 Pro proved to be the fastest MLC based SATA III drive we’ve ever reviewed in any capacity. The caveats being we still haven’t reviewed the 256GB 840 Pro or the Vector 128GB. The only thing better than one of these performance monsters, is of course 2 of them in RAID 0.

Raidmax Raptor Case Review
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I saw the Raptor I immediately jumped at the chance to review it. For no other reason than because I loved the available red-on-black color scheme. Red is bestial. It’s hardcore. It’s the fires of freaking Mordor!

Apple's 10-Year Run: where they succeeded and failed
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 4:01P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the decade we have been publishing TechSpot, we have watched Apple resurge from the joke that G3 and G4 machines represented, to the Apple 'Mac vs. PC' debate -- during a time the company had better luck selling MP3 players than computers -- to today's ubiquity of Apple products in all forms of computing devices. Coming from near bankrupcy during the 90's, it took several years to turn Apple around, but perhaps most important, it took several innovations and breakthrough products to rebuild their image as a tech pioneer. Today, Apple gets much deserved respect from its competitors, and within the industry, there’s unsaid expectation that they are the ones paving the way towards the next big thing.

ADATA XPG SX900 128GB SSD Review
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA’s SX900 series is touted by ADATA as “The Most Powerful SSD on Earth”. To be fair this drive was introduced a while back so this claim may not hold all its water today. ADATA is the first SSD manufacturer to offer LSI SandForce based drives with RAISE free programming. RAISE Free programming allows for more capacity of the drive to be utilized at the expense of some data redundancy. RAISE was designed to allow lesser quality NAND to be utilized without compromising data integrity.

EVGA Z77 Stinger Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"More and more companies are jumping on the mITX bandwagon with the Z77 platform, but the majority of these miniature boards lack the type of features found in their larger counterparts. The latest mITX board on the market, the EVGA Z77 Stinger, however is an entirely different beast, as it is a pint sized motherboard with enthusiast grade features such as native PCIe 3.0, SATA 6G and USB 3.0."

NVIDIA Project SHIELD Hands On Video Demo from CES 2013
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 3:54P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA made some serious noise and surprised just about everyone in attendance a couple of days before the official opening of this years's Consumer Electronics Show, with the company’s official unveiling of its next-gen Tegra 4 SoC and a portable gaming device, code-named "Project SHIELD." We posted details regarding Tegra 4 and SHIELD late Sunday night and we’d suggest checking out this post for some additional information, photos, and specifications. Today we got a chance to see SHEILD up-close and personal in a closed-door meeting with some representatives from NVIDIA. Take a look...

Apple iMac 27 inch 2012 review: Mac XL
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 3:46P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 27-inch iMac we tested costs £1,699, and that's not nothing. You do get a very stylish computer in aluminium with above-average specifications. It has an excellent 27-inch display, a powerful processor, 8 GB of RAM and a fast graphics card. The main drawback is the slow hard disk, in a configuration like this an SSD should be standard.

Acer Aspire S7 Review
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 3:31P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This touchable, classy ultrabook is targeted right at the road-warrior, power-hungry, super-user. The S7 is an expensive machine. The starting price hovers near $1400, but our Core i7 configured spec clocks in at $1650. For the price customers do see a superlative spec sheet and a beautifully designed body. I know what you're thinking. The S7 had better be amazing for that kind of money. Don't worry, with a few qualifiers, the Aspire S7 easily ranks among the top Windows 8 machines. Is that enough to justify the cost?

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.
