Samsung 840 Series 250GB SSD Review
     Wed, Oct 03 2012 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If I were to read an SSD review where the author spoke of traveling 6623 miles to personally receive a sample SSD, only to return those 6623 miles, conduct analysis and write a report on that SSD, I’d tell him that he’d lost his marbles. Having just returned from the Samsung 2012 SSD Summit in Seoul, South Korea, and just completed review of the world’s first TLC based Samsung 840 SSD however, we are saying just that.

Borderlands 2 @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Oct 03 2012 | 11:24A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Borderlands. While most people know what the game is now, not many had heard of it before its release in 2009. It quickly became a smash hit and a household name with its clever writing, enjoyable gameplay, and its bazillion guns. With the sequel launching on September 18th this year, I saw my entire Steam friends list switch to Borderlands 2 only moments after its launch. Gearbox has done it again, I have only managed to quit playing the game long enough to write this review."

ASUS has passed us yet another card from their DirectCU II lineup with the GTX 560 Ti 2GB TOP edition.

Lets take a look at what it had to offer and what you can expect from this value oriented addition to the ASUS family."

Resident Evil 6 Review
     Wed, Oct 03 2012 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As soon as I booted the game and it loaded to the screen with the name and the number 6 on it, I was already smiling. And when I pressed Start and that familiar eerie voice said “Resident Evil…. Six…” I knew I was going to enjoy this game. And I was right.

Review: Thecus N5550 – The Perfect NAS?
     Wed, Oct 03 2012 | 9:02A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The world of the home server and the home based NAS really hasn't changed drastically over the last couple of years. Most of the changes we have seen are related to speeds and basic firmware enhancements. Recently, Thecus has announced its N5550 NAS and plans to shake things up by bringing the NAS out of the home office and into the living room. The N5550, by day, is your mild-mannered NAS. However, by night, the N5550 is more... much more!

ASUS ROG Vulcan ANC
     Wed, Oct 03 2012 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
These days ASUS is exploring some new territory with the ROG brand (Republic of Gamers). With the Vulcan they haven a very nice looking gaming headset in their portfolio, which, at a first glance, looks quite comfortable too. This is reason enough for us to check wether this thing is able to convince or not.

Xtreamer Prodigy Black 3D Media Player
     Wed, Oct 03 2012 | 9:00A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the things i really like about the electronics industry is that no matter how many manufacturers there are at this exact moment in time there will always be more around each day that goes by and so although I’ve been testing hardware (standalone) media players for the past 5 years (or so) i have yet to cooperate with all of them something which some of you keep reminding me from time to time (as you should). Xtreamer may not be the most famous hardware media player manufacturer (A.C.Ryan is and unfortunately they are not doing well so that means little nowadays) but they've been around almost from the very beginning (i think they were established in late 2008/ early 2009) and they are known to manufacture cost-effective yet feature-rich solutions. So since their latest media player & streamer is called the Prodigy Black and has been around for over a year we thought it was about time that we took it out for a test drive.

Posted by: STAFF
"It has come to our attention that NVIDIA is making sure that there will be no voltage control for their GK100 line up. The news comes via a forum post at the EVGA forums (which we confirmed independently) and it's not pretty as far as overclockers are concerned."

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.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review

Rating:
The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
