AZiO Levetron GM533U Gaming Mouse Review
     Thu, Mar 21 2013 | 11:55A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If it isn`t the lack of forward/back buttons that breaks you, then it may just be the style. I do have smaller hands than some of you male gamers, but reaching the macros that are available is awkward at best. To reach the top one, M3, I have to physically pick up my hand to do so a not so optimal action when the boss is about to deliver it`s last blow to your head. The scroll wheel skipping every other physical click made page navigation slow, and the tilt was too easy to bump. The Maxi pad look ends it all with the blood red glow and accent rubbers. I didn`t even want to use it the full week of testing, but I endured it for this review. The AZiO GM-533U just isn`t a mouse for me and loses my complete respect as a gaming mouse."

ROCCAT Kone XTD 8200DPI Wired Gaming Mouse Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Mar 21 2013 | 10:20A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I feel that ROCCAT did a very good job with the Kone XTD gaming mouse. As games get more and more complex, mice like these are needed to give the gamer more power at his/her fingertips, without having to reach for a key. MMOs demand so many macro keys and buttons, it isnt funny. Toss in ROCCATs Easy-Shift[+] technology, and you have twice the buttons at your fingertips! The layout of the mouse is pretty generic, with exception to the button in front of the scroll wheel, but this generic layout is quite comfortable and welcome. The 8200DPI sensor will absolutely provide superior tracking precision, and a lot of gamers will love that! The construction and quality feels exceptional and will be desirable by many..."

Kingston SSDNow V300 128GB Solid State Drive Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Mar 21 2013 | 9:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The V200+ was the latest of the series that we have had on the bench. Performance best not the best but it offers better than mechanical drive numbers (way better), great security as well as Kingston`s repetition of quality. This drives has been a mainstay in our test benches for some time and still going strong. The newest of the series will be the V300 which is now offered in 60GB, 120GB and the largest 240GB sizes. The heart of the drive is a LSI SandForce controller and new 19mm NAND modules all optimized for Kingston. But is it enough to top one of our favorites? We will soon see."

Gigabyte Z77X-UD4H Motherboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Mar 21 2013 | 9:16A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been quite a while since we have taken a look at a motherboard from Gigabyte. The last board we looked at was the Z77X-UD3H back when the Z77 chipset first launched. It has been quite a while since the Z77 launch and we are seeing a second round of Z77 motherboards appear. The Z77X-UD4H is part of of this new round of motherboards and builds upon the UD3H by adding some new features to the board. The Z77X-UD4H is a great motherboard for people looking to get into the Z77 chipset without having to drop a whole lot of money. Right now the Z77X-UD4H is selling for $164.99, which makes it one of the more inexpensive Z77 motherboards available. Dont let the price tag fool you though, this board is filled with great features! Lets dive in"

Anidees AI-06W Midi Tower Review
     Wed, Mar 20 2013 | 4:04P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the many things we should all love about the entire computer industry is that regardless of the already very large number of companies/manufacturers present in the market there`s always room for the introduction of new ones (lets not forget that competition is always good for consumers and usually results to better quality products at lower prices). Of course we mostly see new storage and cooling related manufacturers but from time to time there are some who dare enter the PC case market as their sole focus. One such company is Anidees a brand new PC Case manufacturer based in the Netherlands and although I did have the chance to test their quite impressive and high quality AI-06B (Black) midi tower in the past today on our photo bench we have their latest AI-06W (White) midi tower."

REVIEW: Mionix Naos 8200 Gaming Mouse @ PureOverclock
     Wed, Mar 20 2013 | 10:20A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Mionix Naos 8200 sits right in the midst of a highly competitive mouse market dominated by several very popular products, backed by industry stalwarts that have ruled the roost for quite some time. That may change, however, as the Naos 8200 looks to battle the competition with bold claims of better features and advanced ergonomics. At a price of $90, the Naos 8200 is positioned as the new flagship mouse from Mionix, and sits in the upper echelons of gaming mice. It?s not cheap, but it looks absolutely captivating. Is it worth the premium? Can the Naos 8200 improve upon its predecessor without losing its original appeal? Let?s find out.?"
