SSD NEWS: Super Talent USB3 Express RC8 100GB Flash Drive Review - Windows To Go Tested and Certified
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 3:56P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was just over a year ago that we reviewed the Super Talent 50GB RC8 `SandForce Driven` USB 3 Flash Drive and made the call of it being the fastest flash drive on the planet. Our prediction then was that it would be a natural progression that, soon enough, we would be booting complete systems off of just this type of media. Imagine, simply plugging your flash drive in and accessing your desktop environment anywhere. Our analysis today looks at the Super Talent USB3 Express RC8 100GB Flash Drive and, not only does it easily command bragging rights as the most powerful large capacity Flash Drive on the planet but also, the RC8 is one of the very few certified for the Microsoft Enterprise `Windows To Go` Operating Environment."

SteelSeries Black Ops 2 Peripherals @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 3:56P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its that time of year again, the latest Call of Duty offering was just released and I (and most of the LanOC staff) has been gaming it up. Knowing that we were planning on playing, when SteelSeries introduced their Black Ops 2 peripherals, I quickly hit them up to get a set to use while we played Black Ops 2 at launch. Our coverage on the game itself should be up next week after a weekend packed full of gaming, but for now you can see what SteelSeries has to offer while you wait."

Thermaltake Armor Revo Gene Mid-Tower - BCCHardware
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 3:56P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The left side of the Armor Revo Gene has some great features. One is the large, clear plastic window that allows you to see your hardware. The angular clear window is surrounded by rivets which give the case a nice industrial look. The second feature which I`m surprised you don`t really see too often is the headset holder. At first I thought that the headset holder could easily snap off and I would end up with an eyesore. This is not the case. It seems to have been designed to just simply pop off if you accidentally hit it too hard. . ."

TechSpot Holiday Gift Guide 2012
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 12:03P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With barely a month to go before Christmas, the race is on to clear your holiday shopping list -- or, for the procrastinators out there, to start putting one together. Although you're working against the clock, the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales make this a fairly sensible time to dive in and ensure your loved ones are sufficiently showered in silicon-laced trinkets and baubles on the morning of December 25. As it happens, we have a soft spot for said gadgets and we've compiled a list of over two dozen things spanning all budgets that we'd love to find under the tree this year.

SteelSeries Flux Luxury Edition Review @ Custom PC Review
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 12:02P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The word “Flux” is derived from the Latin word “Fluxus”, which means “to flow”. So when SteelSeries sent us a box with the phrase “Flux yourself” printed on the front, we weren’t sure if it’s a compliment or an insult. Luckily, the box contained more than just random words – inside we found SteelSeries newest addition to their ever-growing audio line-up, the SteelSeries Flux Luxury Edition, for our review...."

Giada A51 Mini PC
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Inside the Giada A51's sleek one-inch thick profile is an AMD G-T56N Brazos APU system with a nice set of connectivity options. Though not particularly quiet, its dimensions make it a compelling option for users with less demanding needs.

AMD A10-5700 APU: Trinity at 65W
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD A10-5700 APU's 65W TDP makes it the preferred Trinity option for a quiet or SFF PC, but clocked 400 MHz slower and costing only US$5 less than the flagship A10-5800K, its value is difficult to gauge.

Packard Bell Dot S Review - XSReviews
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 11:23A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While netbooks have fallen out of the public eye, the victim of tablets` sudden success, the platform is still being developed and manufacturers are still producing new models. One of these is the unit that we`ll be looking at today, the Packard Bell Dot S. The new netbook includes a recently-released Intel Atom Cedar Trail dual-core processor and an interesting look, but will that be enough to set it apart from the pack? Let`s have a look! A link to the article would be much appreciated."

This then leads us into the topic for our review today, the CyberPowerPC Zeus-M2 Ultrabook. Recently unveiled only about a couple months ago, the Zeus-M series Ultrabooks is CyberPowerPC’s first entry into the Ultrabook segment.

Galaxy SIII, iPhone 5, HTC One X+ and 8X shootout
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we look at the quality of recorded video on the Samsung Galaxy S III, Apple iPhone 5, HTC 8X and HTC One X+, the iPhone 5 comes out as winner, even if it's not by much. Runner-up is the Samsung Galaxy SIII, which has reduced sharpness when you enable image stabilisation. When it's turned off, the Galaxy SIII looks better, but then the footage is jerkier instead. The camera of the HTC 8X records very sharp but slightly dark video.

MSI Z77A-GD55 LGA 1155 Motherboard Review
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This motherboard might be a bit off-the-radar for most enthusiasts since it is a bit "down the scale." However, if you want a lot of bang for your buck, then look no further than MSI's Z77A-GD55. While it's somewhat basic in features it's overclocking performance is stellar for the price, which is very value oriented.

If you've ever opened Task Manager in Windows 7 or below, you may have been surprised to see only the graphs of your CPU cores rather than detailed information. You aren't a victim of a virus, but you simply are in a different view.

Call of Duty:Black Ops 2 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Nov 24 2012 | 4:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Call of Duty is one of the best selling franchises of all time. You can say what you will about it, but the sales numbers speak for themselves. With storylines that manage to keep you entertained and feel like a part of the action, and multiplayer that gives constant rewards and never seems to end, there is always something to do in a Call of Duty title. With the yearly installments however, the franchise has come under more scrutiny for not having enough innovation or added content year to year. It is time to take a look at Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 to see if it can still wow us and live up to the standards that gamers have come accustomed to over the years."

Cooler Master HAF XB Case Review
     Sat, Nov 24 2012 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooler Master HAF XB is built on the HAF (High Air Flow) principle which favors multiple fan positions and strategic chassis venting. The idea is that with better chassis cooling you can improve system performance and minimize noise.

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.

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.
