Building an AMD A8-3870K Llano APU System For Under $300 @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Sep 16 2012 | 9:23A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Are you looking to build a budget PC, but have a limited budget to work with? We have had a number of readers and businesses that we consult with looking for new systems that will save power and be faster than the systems they currently have. When we started to look into low cost Do-It-Yourself (DIY) systems we found that you could easily build an AMD Llano system for less than $300. And when we say under $300 we mean with shipping included! You would think that for under $300 we would have to cut corners and use knock off brands, but that is not the case here. We are using the top of the line AMD A8-3870K APU and an OCZ Vertex Plus R2 60GB Solid-State Drive (SSD) into this system. The one corner that we did cut is..."

Tt eSports Chao Dracco Review - XSReviews
     Sun, Sep 16 2012 | 9:10A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Chao Dracco headset is all about Culture, fashion and technology. Whether you`re a Hippie, Punk, Gothic, Hip or Drunk, you are Chao. The Chao headset is a lifestyle, an ideology that inherits the totem of Tt eSports, the Battle dragon, this symbolizes Strength, courage and makes a cultural statement. From TT eSports. XSR translated: The headset is coloured in very bright and flashy colours, great if you`re into that kind of thing. The downside is it looks kind of like you`re wearing a child`s play toy. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Traveling with an iPad
     Sun, Sep 16 2012 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’m no different than most when it comes to computer use. I have a primary desktop system I use at home and when the need arises, I carry a notebook with me when traveling. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t travel too frequently and when I do, it’s usually for business purposes like covering a trade show. But as tablets become more popular and continue to chip away at the mobile computing market, the idea of leaving the notebook behind in favor of a slate certainly seems attractive. On the pros side you have portability, instant-on capabilities, longer battery life, a touchscreen, and in the case of most modern tablets like the iPad 3, an HD video camera.

ADATA XPG SX900 Solid State Drive @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 5:07P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until recently, all SandForce-based solid state drive storage products came with a reserved NAND flash capacity referred to as `Over Provisioning`, used for low-level tasks by the SSD controller. Available now with the ADATA XPG SX900 series, a LSI-SandForce 2281-based solid state drive, capacity grows 7% larger thanks to new firmware that specifies binary capacity points while preserving performance. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the value-priced 256GB ADATA XPG SX900 SSD (model ASX900S3-256GM-C)."

OCZ's Vertex 4 SSD Revisited
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in April, we ran a pair of OCZ Vertex 4 SSDs (256GB and 512GB) through the benchmark grinder to see what they could do... Today, we’re testing another brother in the family, the 128GB OCZ Vertex 4. When we first tested the aforementioned drives, we found that the latest generation of the Vertex series delivered somewhat uneven performance. In some workloads, the drives more or less smoked the competition, while they stumbled a bit in others. The bottom line was that the OCZ Vertex 4 SSDs were mostly impressive, but they didn’t demonstrate quite the upgrade from the previous-generation Vertex 3s that we would have liked. Between then and now, however, OCZ has tended to the Vertex 4 SSD line by upgrading its firmware. On the pages ahead we’ll get a gander at how the updated 128GB OCZ Vertex 4 stacks up against other drives with similar capacities and see if it can demonstrate a greater performance enhancement over the competition than the 256GB and 512GB versions did. We’ll also check in on how (or if) pricing has changed over the last few months...

Interview: 2Dawn Games on its upcoming
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earth is dying. Devastated by a pole shift, the planet's oceans have evaporated and its cities reduced to rubble. In its struggle to survive, mankind has split between two warring factions: the Scavengers, savage marauders hell-bent on claiming the world's remaining resources, and the Resistance, freedom fighters working to restore civilization. With humanity undergoing its greatest test, where will your loyalties lie? Currently in beta (keys giveaway at the end of the interview), Ravaged is the brainchild of Boris Ustaev and his crew at 2Dawn Games, who have spent the last few years toiling away on a fast-paced post-apocalyptic multiplayer shooter with a strong focus on skills, teamwork, vehicular combat and most importantly, fun. In other words, it's everything the folks at 2Dawn have wanted in a modern PC shooter, but have been unable to find.

Bitfenix Prodigy: a unique mini-ITX chassis
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Prodigy is the first mini-ITX chassis Bitfenix has released, and right-away it's an attempt to offer something different than what's already out there. Bitfenix tried a different approach to the mini-ITX form factor, something we can only applaud in an otherwise conservative market. We also like the many different possibilities you get with the Prodigy, we can think of many different applications. The Bitfenix Prodigy has excellent build quality, lots of upgrade possibilities, many configuration options and a very reasonable price.

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.
