OWC Mercury Accelsior 480GB PCI-E Solid State Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 11:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PCI-Express solid state drives are fairly new and there are only a handful of these drives available. These devices break the speed barrier on SATA 6GB/s drives by using the PCI-E interface. The most prevalent PCI-E solid state drives our OCZs RevoDrive series, but OCZ better watch out because the drive we are taking a look at today has a few features that the RevoDrives do not. The OWC Mercury Accelsior PCI-E Solid State Drive comes in capacities from 120GB to 960GB, is upgradable, and is both PC and Mac plug and play compatible. Want to learn more? Read on for our review!"

Sapphire and ECS X79 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 11:48A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After looking at the lack of a heat sink over half of the VRM package I was leery of pushing too hard on the ECS X79R-AX. But push it did and offered up a higher overclock than the Sapphire Pure Black X79N by over 100MHz. The ECS BIOS allows the user to adjust the voltages in positive or negative increments instead of a fixed value for the CPU. By adjusting the vcore up and enabling LLC I was able to push the Core i7 3960X to 4653MHz using 1.46v."

REVIEW: ASRock X79 Extreme 11 @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 10:39A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The full array of Z77 motherboards has already been introduced throughout the industry and Ivy Bridge is now a mainstay for Intel. With all the hype and migration, many have forgotten about another viable, and arguably better, computing platform. Yes, the X79 platform is still alive and so are Sandy Bridge E processors. ASRock has one of the most comprehensive X79 lineups of all manufacturers, and now the ASRock X79 Extreme 11 has appeared to shake things up further. The Extreme 11 has seven PCIE 3.0 slots (using the PLX PEX 8747 chip), eight SATA III ports and eight USB 3.0 ports. This is on top of a boatload of other features as well. Needless to say, the Extreme 11 is surely built for the performance inclined user."

Jabra EXTREME2 Bluetooth Headset Review
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 9:39A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although most smartphones nowadays feature low levels of radiation (also known as SAR) it`s always good to use a Bluetooth wireless earset/headset especially since the law in many countries forbids usage of cellphones when driving without one. Now for all of you that aren`t aware of SAR it stands for Specific Absorption Rate, a method which basically measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the human body when using a cellphone. Because this happens most manufacturers recommend holding the phone at a distance of 30mm away from your body when using it so it`s very easy to understand that this isn`t possible without the use of an earset/headset. I know it`s been a while since i last had the chance to test a Bluetooth wireless earset/headset but during my short vacation i had plenty of time to test the latest one from Jabra called the EXTREME2."

I-Mego Walker Junior Headset @ Techreaction.net
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 9:30A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we finally received our sample from I-MEGO, Walker Junior Headphones. They are geared toward travelers. It is engineered to create a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise. You will have 40mm drivers pushing these headsets to bring you the best quality posible. These headphones feature a miniature microphone in each earpiece that picks up ambient noise, such as traffic or the noisy lady in the seat behind you on the plane. Electronics in used create a noise-canceling wave that is 180 degree out of phase with the ambient noise. This wave acts like a noise eraser and cancels out the annoying sounds that surround you without diminishing the audio you want to hear. Now, lets see how well the Walker Junior headset works in our testing."

TRENDnet TPL-405E 4-Port 500Mbps Powerline AV Adapter Review
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 9:20A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday the IEEE group (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) announced the next standard in Ethernet connectivity which should be able to achieve remarkable data transfer speeds ranging from 400Gbps and up to 1Tbps. Of course to most users this will not be of much importance (at least at first) but for enterprises and professionals such speeds will be of tremendous value (especially when used alongside large SSD arrays). Until that day comes however the only equipment available to us are 1Gbps modem/routers and 500Mbps Powerline adapters like the ones we`ve been testing lately and because many of you seem to be out searching for the ideal adapter today we are testing the latest TPL-405E 4-Port 500Mbps Powerline AV adapter by TRENDnet."

X3i Micro Mobile Speakers Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 4:10P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Im back with another quick review for you, of a decent little product. Most MP3 players dont have speakers and most phones has inadequate speakers so whats a person to do? One thing you can do is get a set of external speakers like the X3i Micro Mobile Speakers that I have for review today. These speakers are small and portable, portability is important I think when it comes to devices like this as surely youll take them with you. Sound quality is important as well and these are pretty good and theyre very loud, much louder than youd expect from such small speakers. Overall theyre perfect for what they need to do, but they do have one small flaw I think "

TP-LINK N750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router (TL-WNDR4300) Review @ Madshrimps

Posted by: STAFF
The new N750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router from TP-LINK is feature rich, provides decent speeds in wireless environment and comes at a very affordable price. The GUI which can be accessed via the browser is not as attractive as the competition and most of the modifications in a page require a router system reboot."

The Corsair K60 and K90 were launched simultaneously and represent Corsair’s first attempt at producing a mechanical keyboard. Corsair has included media keys, a metal volume wheel, and a Windows-key lock on both keyboards if you find yourself yelling, “I HATE THIS KEY!” at your desktop because your game is now minimized and cannot receive your hatred.

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.
