CES 2013: TactSlider @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Jan 21 2013 | 10:59A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the greatest things about CES is finding those few products that just blow you away. In transit from one scheduled morning meeting to another we crossed paths with the TactSlider booth. This booth was one of the smallest booths that we took the time to stop at during the entire event. Crazy enough the product we stumbled upon will probably revolutionize the tablet gaming industry for years to come. Imagine having a tactile joystick no bigger than a quarter that could attach anywhere to the surface of your mobile device to take the place of the annoying dedicated button spots or terrible tracking d-pads. The TactSlider is a cheap option that will essentially make that d-pad into one of the most comfortable analog sticks Ive ever used. With a ridiculous amount of gaming applications the TactSlider is a product that Im sure will be at CES next yearin a MUCH bigger booth."

Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking for are looking for a fast SDHC memory card then the ADATA Premier Pro series should be of interest to you. We found the rated write speeds were spot on and that is important to photography professionals, especially those that do continuous burst mode shooting or do high dynamic range (HDR) imaging! We used this card on a number of cameras and found no pause or hesitation when taking high resolution pictures as the camera wasn`t waiting on the memory card to finish writing..."

Mad Catz Tritton Pro+ 5.1 Surround Headset @ Benchmark Reviews
     Mon, Jan 21 2013 | 1:17A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Before current generation consoles were even conceived, PC gamers and enthusiasts have been able to enjoy the benefits that headsets offer. In recent years XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3 users are now also able to enjoy those same benefits. Today Benchmark Reviews will be taking a look at the TRITTON Pro+ True 5.1 Surround Sound Headset from Mad Catz. The TRITTON Pro+ is compatible with PlayStation 3, XBOX 360 and PC (Europe) via an optional cable. The TRITTON Pro+ boasts true Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound via eight individual drivers - four in each earcup (Front, Center, Surround, Subwoofer) - each with independent volume control. Visually speaking there isn`t much that separates the Pro+ from the rest of the TRITTON range of headsets; it`s all about what`s inside, so let`s find out more..."

Acer Aspire S7 Touch Screen Ultrabook Review - Worlds Fastest Ultrabook Intros New SSD Form Factor
     Sun, Jan 20 2013 | 2:21P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer S7 rips a page from Apple right off the bat (not a bad thing), in that, they have built an ultrabook that focuses on a white finish with light aluminum casing. At only 0.47 thick and weighing in at 2.86lbs, the S7 is one of the smallest ultras available. Its build is solid, just as we had previously spoken of with the MBA, and for the first time ever, a company has used gorilla glass for the display. Our sample system is equipped with an Intel Core i7-3517U processor, 4GB RAM, 256GB SSD, W8 64-bit, 802.11 AG/N w/ BT 4.0, Acer Crystal Eye HD Webcam and a 4 cell battery that is not being changed by the typical user anytime soon but should average out at just over 4 hrs per charge."

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy and Corsair looks to remedy that with its Carbide Series 200R; or something like that. Outside of the motherboard installation, no tools required is the message Corsair is looking to get across about this compact size "mid-tower" case.

In case its name hasn’t given it away yet, the QuickFire TK features the tenkey pad, but that’s not all. It also features the tenkeyless..."

Canon PIXMA MG8250 review: high-end all-in-one
     Sun, Jan 20 2013 | 12:00P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We reviewed the Canon PIXMA MG8250. This is the best photo-all-in-one that we've tested in recent times. It really didn't disappoint us in any aspect. It looks good, has all the connectors that you need, and it is very user-friendly with the touch buttons and the display. The CCD scanner creates scans that are superior to those made by CIS scanners, and you can scan 35 mm film. The print quality is excellent, with beautiful colours and sharp, deep-black text.

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand Platinum 700W Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Jan 20 2013 | 11:46A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a MSRP price of $189.99 at the time of this review, the Toughpower Grand Platinum is one of the most expensive 700W power supplies available in the market; however, the high price could be possibly justified by the number of features and the performance of this unit. The list of features of the Toughpower Grand Platinum is so long that we simply cannot list them all in a single paragraph; however, we feel that the major highlights of this power supply are the 80Plus Platinum certification, the 7-year long manufacturer`s warranty and its unique..."

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.
