Red Aluminum Shine Cover for HTC One Review
     Fri, Aug 02 2013 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"So I’ve got another review of a case for the HTC One, yes I’ve got a lot of them, and this one an oddly named one, it’s actually called the HTC One Shine Aluminum Cover, which to me just sounds weird, but hey, whatever. It’s a case and that’s all we need to know I guess right? The case is thin with a red aluminum back and a soft inner lining. The price is under $15, and overall it’s not a bad case, it covers the back and sides and leaves the top and bottom fully open. So read on…"

Remember Me @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Aug 02 2013 | 8:30A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The action-adventure genre has been getting a decent amount of attention lately with the Batman Arkham games as well as more recent titles like Tomb Raider and Devil May Cry. Remember Me is a title in this same mold from Capcom and Dontnod Entertainment that looks to balance the standard mix of platforming, exploration and combat along with a few unique tricks up its sleeve to deliver us an entertaining experience in a sci-fi dystopia based around the interesting concept of memory transfer. Will this offering prove memorable or fall flat in its attempt? Join me as we take a look."

Crucial M500 240GB SSD Review
     Thu, Aug 01 2013 | 4:07P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve seen the large 960GB M500 and the smaller 120GB drives. Today we look at the sweet spot for enthusiasts and power users, the 256GB class model. Sold with 240GB of user capacity, does the mid size model suffer from the same performance issues that plague the 120GB model or does this one take after big brother?"

GTX 760 SLI Results @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Aug 01 2013 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I recently had the chance to check out a couple of Nvidia’s new GTX 760’s. Now that we are past the launch and things have calmed down, I can now also share the results of my SLI testing of those cards as well. It will be interesting to see how they compare to the GTX 770 SLI results as well as single card performance of the GTX 780 itself.

CM Storm Pulse-R Headset Review @ HiTech Legion
     Thu, Aug 01 2013 | 12:20P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CM Storm Pulse-R is a stereo gaming headset meant to replace the soon to be EOL CM Storm Sonuz. The CM Storm Pulse-R is equipped with 52mm drivers and 97mm ear pads for excellent performance and comfort. Just like the CM Storm Sonuz, the Pulse-R headset also comes with a detachable omni-directional microphone and in-line remote for volume control and microphone muting. Laser etched aluminum plates on the CM Storm Pulse-R ear pads can easily be removed and customized to sport specific gaming clan colors and patterns. White LEDs on the ear cups, inline remote and microphone are powered via USB. For better portability, the CM Storm Pulse-R`s cables are also detachable while to ensure durability, CM storm braided the 2 meter long cable while each end is outfitted with anti-fraying protection. For further peace of mind, Cooler Master also provides warranty should the Pulse-R start exhibiting issues within two years of purchase./"

Lian Li D8000 Review: Double-Sized, Full HPTX Tower
     Thu, Aug 01 2013 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lian Li's D8000 is also on the purposely huge HPTX form factor. As a point of reference, a standard ATX mid-tower supporting seven expansion slots generally has a 60L capacity while the big Cubitek HPTX-ICE and Lian Li PC-V2120 tout capacities of 79L and 88L. With a capacity of 145L, the D8000 shatters that paradigm, offering 140% more room than a standard ATX case, which makes sense since the D8000 is essentially two full tower cases fused together.

Thecus N2520 review: first NAS with Intel Atom CE5315
     Thu, Aug 01 2013 | 12:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thecus N2520 is certainly interesting due to the new features, but right now we have to speak more of interesting potential than a great final product. That's because many things aren't available or active yet. The HDMI isn't functional yet and not everything is entirely finalized in the new firmware.

KingFast E-Drive Pro KF2510SCF 120GB SLC SSD Review
     Thu, Aug 01 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are a novice regarding SSDs and SSD technology, the names ‘Runcore’ and ‘KingFast’ should at least strike a chord. The two companies recently merged, with KingFast becoming the sub-brand of RunCore; neither have shown signs of slowing down. Being two of the top SSD manufacturers, we will be looking at their newest SLC creation. Between the three NAND memory types – SLC (Single Layer Cell), MLC (Multi Layer Cell), and TLC (Three Layer Cell) – consumers typically are accustomed to MLC. SLC has the best endurance and best performance, but is also more expensive and lower in capacity due to cost and technical limitations. TLC is the exact opposite, and hence is not seen due to its lack of productivity, especially since MLC fits as the best intermediate between the two – solid performance, high density, low cost, decent endurance.

CM Storm Quickfire Stealth Mechanical Keyboard
     Thu, Aug 01 2013 | 12:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master has been building mechanical keyboards under its CM Storm line for the last couple of years. They started with the small Quickfire Rapid, and moved over time to larger designs, but Cooler Master’s newest design harkens back to the original Quickfire Rapid, bring improvements on its design and giving it sleek exterior with no markings on the tops of its keys. The question that Benchmark Reviews aims to answer though is whether Cooler Master improved enough to justify the extra cost or are users better off going with the original Quickfire Rapid.
