Gigabyte BRIX Projector Ultra Compact PC Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, May 08 2014 | 5:25A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The whole idea behind Gigabytes BRIX ultra compact PC kits are to give you a functional PC with an extremely small form factor. This makes them perfect for a media or internet machine. Their small size means you can put them pretty much anywhere as well. While the BRIX systems have been out for a while the BRIX projector is a newer product that takes a BRIX ultra compact PC Kit and adds a micro-projector for a complete and very cool setup. It is actually quite impressive that Gigabyte has been able to fit a projector right on top of the BRIX, making it not much larger than the normal version. The Gigabyte BRIX Projector that we are taking a look at today is powered by the Intel i3-4010U 1.7GHz processor and Intel HD 4400 graphics. Being that this is a PC Kit you will need to install your own DDR3L memory and mSATA drive. Lets take a look!"

Happy Hour Timepieces The Ish Watch Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, May 08 2014 | 1:47A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I have something a bit different for review, its a watch, but not just any watch as its from a company called Happy Hour Timepieces. The name of the watch is The Ish and the idea behind this companies watches is happy hour or 5pm when the work day ends and you finally get chance to relax and enjoy happy hour as it were. The Ish watch is very unique in two ways specifically, the first is that the dial is actually hazy or foggy except for the magical number 5 which is all that counts right?! The second thing that makes The Ish unique is that it has a built-in bottle opener, the clasp is actually heavy duty and its designed to open a bottle with just a twist of your wrist. Those are just two things, but overall the The Ish is very nice, its well made and it looks great. Read on to learn more.."

Anker 40 watt 5-port Wall Charger and 2nd Gen Astro3 12000 mAh Battery Review
     Wed, May 07 2014 | 8:14A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Anker 40 watt 5-port USB wall charger is currently selling for just $25 on Amazon and is available in both white and black. The 2nd Gen Astro3 12,000 mAh battery is going for $45 on Amazon, also available in both black and white. It`s hard to recommend one over the other since they fit into such different spaces. If the Astro3 would allow you to both charge and draw power from it to some degree that might help but otherwise these units are for totally unique scenarios. If you have a lot of devices that need to be charged at home or on the road (at the hotel) then the 40 watt 5-port wall charger will be perfect. If you need power on the go while you in your car, covering an event or just don`t have time to sit and watch a phone power meter go up, then the Astro3 is the answer."

Fractal Arc Mini R2 @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, May 07 2014 | 5:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once Fractal designs a case they normally go back through and make sure to design similar models that fit the needs of people who need small, medium, and large sized builds. There isnt anything worse than finding the perfect case for you then finding out that its not going to fit your build. We already have taken a good look at the Arc XL from Fractal, so when the Arc Mini R2 came in the similarities were too hard to ignore. If its anything like its much larger brother we will most likely love the Arc Mini R2, but of course we have to take a much closer look to find out more about it."

     Wed, May 07 2014 | 1:47A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Comparisons of two mid-range (roughly) graphics cards with one high-end VGA are almost always good for some really interesting results. Today we`re having a look at what two AMD Radeon R9 280X graphics cards can do against one NVIDIA GTX 780 Ti. The two R9 280X cards are quite a bit cheaper and we`re really curious to find out which setup is going to be quicker."

20 Questions - an Interview with OCZ Storage Solutions
     Tue, May 06 2014 | 8:14A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,Many of you know that OCZ Technology has been in rough weather last year, that`s up-to the point where the company needed to file a chapter 11 bankruptcy, with the purpose to be taken over by Toshiba. The SSD market is fierce and competitive, if you are your own NAND flash manufacturer then you can sell your products cheap. If you sell NAND flash to a party like OCZ, then OCZ pays a premium price, making it hard for them to actually offer a price competitive solution. In this Interview we`ll ask to see what has happened over the past few months, and how it affects consumers and clients."
