Samsung Series 5-550 Chromebook Review: The Chromebook Matures
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 2:43P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having handled the new Series 5 for a couple weeks I cant help but wonder why anyone would buy a netbook or budget ultraportable instead. The experience offered by this laptop is clearly superior in every way. The keyboard is excellent, the touchpad is wonderful, the display is reasonable, the battery is adequate and performance is great for the price. I feel that this new Chromebook is the netbook fully realized a small, highly portable and inexpensive machine that offer a web experience better or equal to more expensive alternatives."

Raidmax Agusta @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 1:13P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Finding innovation and creativity in the case market today seems to get harder and harder as time goes by. Its not that everything has been done, more that coming up with new and innovative ideas is getting tougher for all of the manufactures. We are starting to see more and more cases that look alike. A while back Raidmax sent over a case they wanted me to take a look at, something different they had been working on. Today I will be taking a look at the final version of that same case, the Agusta. With a few new ideas and a style that no other case has, its most likely for everyone, but I have a feeling we will see a few around at LANs in the future."

StarTech.com InfoSafe SATA HDD Enclosure Review - XSReviews
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 1:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
StarTech.com is a retailer that specialises in hard-to-find niche computing and electronics items built for businesses, but today we`ll be looking at an item of interest to any gamer or media consumer. It`s called the InfoSafe, and it`s an unusual proposition -- a kind of high end hard drive enclosure that supports two 2.5? SATA drives. As well as the dual layout, there is support for a number of configurations and advanced connectivity options. Let`s have a look at whether this premium enclosure is worth the extra dosh. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Intel Lists 36 Variants Of Haswell Graphics
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 11:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thanks to patches surfacing on public mailing lists on Monday that continue work on the open-source enablement of Intel Haswell graphics under Linux, we have a look at the different variants of Haswell. Somewhat surprising is that there`s 36 different IDs representing the next-generation Haswell products with different flavors of integrated graphics."

Icy Dock Blizzard MB080U3S-1SB @ Techreaction.net
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 10:42A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
TechREACTION would like to thank Icy Dock for providing this rather unusual (but stylish) external enclosure for our scrutiny. Being a major player in the storage enclosure (from internal 2.5 to 3.5 drive adapters all the way up to external raid cages) market Icy Dock has the bases covered. One question comes up here and that is what can you use an external drive for besides backups? The answer to that question is rather subjective and the one thing that breaks the deal is access times and transfer rates. Can this drive match the transfer rates and access times of internal drives? How about solid state drives? Is it capable of pushing the data? We shall see."

RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-CAM2002 1.3MP Outdoor IP Camera Review
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 10:38A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week i was lucky enough to attend a party thrown by one of the worlds largest companies (unrelated with PC hardware) during which i was somewhat taken off guard when some people (including a couple of friends) walked up to me and asked my opinion on whether or not using IP cameras is the way to go if they wanted to safeguard their homes/properties. My reply to them was what Ive been telling everyone for the past 5 years and that`s that IP cameras can certainly add an extra layer of security and they can come in very handy (sometimes they can even act as a measure of prevention) but should never be used on their own. Anyways last time we checked the Airlive OD-2025HD 2MP Outdoor IP Camera but since FullHD (1080p) models do not come very cheap today we will be taking a look an HD (1.3MP/720p) Outdoor IP Camera, the RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-CAM2002."

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 10:08A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 is a stunning all-in-one desktop PC that sports a beautiful, Apple-like design and a multitouch 27-inch 1080p display. The design of the PC is definitely its strongest selling point, but the touchscreen and multimedia features add to it. It does lack in terms of performance and touch-based applications."

Antec EarthWatts EA-650 Platinum 650W Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 9:54A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to performance, besides its high electrical efficiency which is expect from an 80Plus Platinum unit. The Earthwatts Platinum 650W PSU also excels in acoustics, with the unit running entirely silent across the entire nominal load range. The high efficiency also allows it to operate at fairly low temperatures as little energy is wasted as heat. Even though most hardcore enthusiasts would find this unit`s electrical performance mediocre, we believe that the ripple suppression and voltage regulation of the Earthwatts Platinum 650W unit is more than acceptable for a sub-$100 product..."

Corsair's Obsidian 550D
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair's Obsidian 550D has pretty much all the traits of its successful predecessors, but is also carefully engineered for noise reduction and sound isolation thanks to the use sound dampening pads on the sides and front panel of the chassis to actively absorb the noise being produced by the internal fans. Hit our review to see how much of difference they will make, and if there are any resulting side effects elsewhere.

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.
