Inside the Macintosh 512K @ Hardware Secrets
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 11:06A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following the release of the original Macintosh in 1984, Apple released the Macintosh 512K in 1985. The main difference between the two was the increase in RAM to 512 kB. The original Macintosh had 128 kB and started to be called the 128K after plans to release the 512K were revealed."

Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP 1600MHz 16GB Kit Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 11:06A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This problem could be rectified simply by journeying over to Crucial.com and ordering up a new set of Ballistix Sport VLP memory kit. Not only will they eliminate the clearance problem between the two components but also omit having to pump tons of voltage in the DIMM to get a good heavy clock out of them."

Patriot Gauntlet 320 Wireless Portable Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 10:24A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the popularity of smart phones and tablets, the need expanded storage to house numerous large media files has increased. A big problem is, many tablets and phones (Apple devices in particular) lack the functionality to add additional capacity via media cards, etc. and upgrading to larger capacities is very expensive as compared to adding external storage. This leaves many buyers in a quandary of spending less and hoping they don`t need the space, or splurging for the larger capacity models with a premium price tag. Patriot has recognized this dilemma and decided the answer the knock of opportunity by designing a device to give consumers another option. The Patriot Gauntlet 320 wireless portable drive allows users of iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire to access content stored on the drive wirelessly through an app that can be downloaded for free..."

CM Storm Recon Mouse Pad and Bungee Roundup Review
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 9:25A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Skorpion bungee was a gimmick product I always snickered at with just a dumb idea conning those for money. Having used one now for a couple weeks I like the concept; the Skorpio is a really neat product and it will hold your mouse cable again and again. However, when you look at the price tag, $20 doesn`t sound like a lot, but when you realize a rock from your backyard can perform the same task you think twice. It`s a neat idea and if you have money to burn, it`s worth the burning but otherwise I`d just stick with a pet rock to hold your cable in place."

Cooler Master Storm Quickfire TK @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 9:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A little over a year ago at GeforceLAN I got my hands on my first Cooler Master Storm Quickfire Rapid with cherry black key switches and loved it. I later got an official review sample with cherry blue key switches as well as the cherry black version wasnt available in the US at the time. For the past year we have been using both of these Quickfire Rapids on our test benches because they are amazing keyboards that take up little space. The two issues I had with them was their lack of backlighting and the adjustment time needed to get used to not having a number pad. Cooler Master recently introduced a new keyboard in the Quickfire product line, their Quickfire TK. The TK addresses both of the issues I had with the rapid. Lets see how this unique design performs."

Cooler Master Storm Stryker @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 9:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At our last LAN we gave away a couple Cooler Master Storm Trooper cases and I was extremely impressed with them. Of course right now white is all the rage, so it wasnt a surprise that Cooler Master introduced a white version as well. This time they called it the Stryker, Im sure that a white and black Storm branded Trooper made a few lawyers a little uncomfortable, so the name change when going white wasnt a shock. No matter the name, I was excited to dig in and put the Stryker to the test."

Corsair AX860i Digital ATX Platinum Power Supply Review
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 9:25A | Power Supply | PermaLink

The AX860i Digital comes with a good assortment of all-modular cables that can support the latest CPUs and multiple, high-end video cards. And lets not forget Corsairs 7-year warranty!"

Tt eSPORTS Level 10M Gaming Mouse Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 9:14A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tt eSPORTs (Thermaltake) collaborated with DesignworksUSA, a subsidiary of BMW Group, to create one of these very products. The idea was to take the standard Gaming Mouse and put a twist on it like youve never seen before. Aesthetically and functionally unique I give the Level 10 M Gaming Mouse. If you arent familiar with work done between Thermaltake and DesignworksUSA you should search the original Level 10 case. Most people are familiar with the Level 10 case that was reviewed here at ThinkComputers but let me tell you the inspiration for that case was quite unique, and so was the cost. DesignworksUSA is a company that specializes in thinking outside of the car realm and applying its design application to products that you wouldnt normally think of. Is the Level 10 M Gaming Mouse of those products that people will revere for more than just its design? Lets take a look!"

Vodafone Mobile Wi-Fi R205 Dongle Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 5:09A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Vodafone Mobile Wi-Fi R205 Dongle Review @ HardwareHeaven.com USB 3G dongles have been around for a while, allowing those of us on the move to connect to mobile networks with our laptops, or acting as a backup to a wired connection at home. This is all very well when there is one PC but what if we have more devices that need access to the connection? For those sort of scenarios Vodafone have the R205 adapter which takes its 3G connection and acts as a mini-router, sharing it with multiple devices via Wi-Fi."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
