XFX R9 290X Black OC Edition Graphics Card Review with Mantle @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Mon, Mar 17 2014 | 7:27P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
XFX R9 290X Black OC Edition Graphics Card Review with Mantle @ HardwareHeaven.com Today on our test bench we have a Radeon 290X from XFX, the R9-290X Black OC Double Dissipation. With custom design and expanded voltage tweaking it aims to exceed anything we have seen from a 290X to date. We will be putting it through a selection of real world tests to establish how it performs in the latest games... and taking a look at AMD Mantle too."

XFX R9 290 Double Dissipation Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Mar 16 2014 | 7:15P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Out of last year`s AMD cards there was one card that stood above the rest with an all metal custom cooler. That was the double dissipation HD 7970 from XFX. This year there is a lot more competition and XFX has changed their design once again. I`m excited to find out how XFX stands up against the competition this year. With a black and chrome it certainly has the styling needed, but how is the performance? Let`s find out!"

GPU Charts 2014 @ ocaholic
     Sun, Mar 16 2014 | 3:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As usual we have used an up to date system with three synthetic benchmarks and ten more or less recent games, benched at 1920x1080 with highest graphics settings. Only reference cards from both nVidia and AMD/ATI will be listed (aka no AIB cards). The idea behind is to show a performance overview of the current gaming graphics cards."

XFX R7 250 Review
     Sat, Mar 15 2014 | 7:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With so many revisions being released lately it can be hard for established gamers on a budget to justify wanting to buy upgrades when their equipment might perform similarly (as the HD 7750 and R7 250 does). For people building new systems right now the HD 7750 is priced slightly cheaper (but it does have a rebate at this time), and while it is 1-2 generations older (two if you count the OEM-only HD 8000 series), it did perform slightly better than the R7 250. Upgrading from older generation graphics cards would be much wiser than a jump from a mid-range HD 7000-series to the mid-range R7-series."

Gigabyte Geforce GTX 780 GHz Edition Video Card Review @HiTech Legion

Just when you thought you would have to wait until Maxwell to see a performance boost from nVidia, Gigabyte has released the GTX 780 GHz Edition. The Gigabyte GTX 780 GHz Edition takes its name from the largest OC on a GTX 780 available, bumping the base clock to 1019 MHZ with a Boost Clock of a scorching 1071 MHz. /"

Verizon Wireless LG G2 @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Mar 14 2014 | 6:51P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For what seemed like months we have seen commercials for the LG G2 on television. Recently Verizon Wireless sent one over for us to check out and I have been putting it through daily use. For the most part the G2 is a lot like other phones but it does have a very unique placement of its volume and power buttons. Where most phones have the buttons on the sides or top, the G2`s buttons are on the back of the phone. So today I`m going to talk a little about my experience with the G2 and Verizon Wireless`s network."

Western Digital My Cloud EX2 - Redundant Cloud Storage on a Smaller Scale
     Fri, Mar 14 2014 | 10:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Western Digital EX2 fills an important gap in home network storage devices. RAID adds much needed redundancy, and Western Digital`s My Cloud suite lets you get to that redundantly stored data from just about anywhere - even away from home. Speeds were noted to be very good, as the EX2 turned in read speeds exceeding 100 MB/sec over the local network. There were a few quirks in write speeds to USB connected devices, but NAS devices always seem to be picky about writing to externally connected media. Overall, the Western Digital EX2 was impressive, packing a lot of functionality and storage into a neat and tidy package."

Gigabyte Brix Pro Review GB-BXi7-4770R @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Mar 13 2014 | 3:50P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We first saw the Gigabyte Brix Pro Ultra Compact PC Kit in September 2013 at the Intel Developer Forum and instantly fell in love with the pint-sized system due to the hardware inside. Gigabyte managed to fit the Intel Core i7-4770R 3.9GHz quad-core processor along with Intel?s powerful new Iris Pro 5200 integrated graphics in a form factor that is just 62 x 111.4 x 114.4 mm or 0.79 Liters in size. We recently got our hands on the Gigabyte Brix Pro GB-BXi7-4770R, which is the flagship model that runs $649.99 plus shipping if you are lucky and can find a retailer that isn?t out of stock at the moment..."

WD My Cloud EX2 2-Bay Personal Cloud NAS Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Mar 13 2014 | 10:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
WD`s Personal Cloud Storage devices aimed at home network-attached storage (NAS) users has been steadily growing since the My Cloud was first announced in October 2013. WD followed that up with a 4-Bay model called the My Cloud EX4 in November 2013 for those that were looking for data redundancy and more storage capacity. The one obvious product that was missing was a 2-bay product, but that all changed with the announcement of the My Cloud EX2 today. The My Cloud EX2 is WD`s answer to those looking for a fully featured 2-bay NAS device. The My Cloud EX2 uses the same firmware and user interface as the other My Cloud products, but utilizes a different hardware platform."

ToughArmor 6x2.5 SATA HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Mar 12 2014 | 6:27P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`re like me you like to back up files, install every game in your Steam library just because and record your favorite TV shows to your hard drive to enjoy them on your own time. This unfortunately takes up a lot of space and more often than not means you need more and more hard drives to sate your unhealthy obsession with storage but what happens when you run out of space to put your drives or even worse, your media PC is in a small mATX case? Icy Dock looks to come to the data hogs rescue with their ToughArmor 6x2.5 SATA HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack which promises to give us a place to put 6 2.5 drives in a single 5.25 external bay. We`ll find out if this increase in storage is worth your time."

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.
