PQI Air Drive External Wireless Storage Device Product and Video Review
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 12:03P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PQI Air Drive is a portable storage device the size of a credit card (and a bit thicker) that enables up to five people to connect and stream live music, movies or photos from the drive to their portable devices simultaneously. Unlike traditional storage devices that uses on fixed memory to store your files, the Air Drives only source of storage is an SD card (or in our case microSD card) up to a maximum capacity of 32GB and can be purchased with different capacity cards included.

Synology DiskStation DS1513+
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 12:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Synology categorize the DS1513+ as a small to medium business solution and this is obviously where it makes the most sense, opposed to home use or even SOHO usage. With four Gigabit LAN ports offering Link Aggregation the DS1513+ is an ideal solution for feeding lots of client PCs data at the same time.

Gainward GeForce GTX 770 Phantom
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gainward GTX 770 Phantom certainly is an impressive graphics card that not only looks cool, but also runs cool. It is also very quiet, making less noise than most case fans - it certainly wasn’t heard over anything else in our test system. While the Gainward GTX 770 Phantom does provide more performance when compared to a standard GTX 770, as is often the case with factory overclocking the gains are not huge. Still with an average of 5% more performance in the ten games that we tested with, the gains are worth it.

AMD A4-5000 - Kabini the mainstream APU
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Benchmarks aside, from our perspective the AMD A4-5000 was fast enough for general usage. With an SSD in tow it would open up Word 2013 or any of the other Office applications in seconds for example. For those wanting to surf the Internet, e-mail, conduct some word processing or even a little graphic design, the A4-5000 will provide enough power and the run time to avoid you looking for another power socket the moment you disconnect it from one.

Palit GTX 760 JetStream 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 10:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Palit`s GeForce GTX 760 JetStream comes with a large overclock out of the box, on both GPU and memory. This makes it one of the fastest GTX 760s that we review today. The card also uses a dual fan, triple slot cooler, with just a $5 price premium over the reference design."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Intels 4th Generation Haswell Core i7-4770K LGA1150 Processor Reviewed
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 9:25A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple weeks ago, Intel released their 4th Generation Haswell processor series. It continues to offer every feature but is architecturally different from Ivy Bridge. All the marketing data and other laboratory testing point to improved performance all around including new integrated Intel Iris HD graphics processing designed for supporting 4K displays. But does Haswell offer a new processor experience? Is Iris the boost needed to to move to 4K displays? And finally, is Haswell thermal friendly enough to overclock? These questions are what Ive been taking the time to answer. "

     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 9:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the person with many gadgets, the Quirky Converge Universal USB Docking Station is a way to centralize your device charging. It`s a sleek shelf that has four USB plugs to charge up to four devices simultaneously. It`s perfect for charging a tablet, a phone and a digital camera all at once."

MSI GeForce GTX 770 Gaming edition
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let's review the MSI GeForce GTX 770 Gamer edition. This more affordable version of the GTX 770 might be stock clocked but is armed with military class components, an awesome TwinFrozr cooler that is very silent and keeps this GPU chilled down at a cool 70 Degrees C temperature. Oh and it overclocks as well as any GTX 770 card really, making this a bargain buy for just 370 EUR.

Genius X-G510 Gaming Mouse
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 9:02A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Genius X-G510 won’t break your bank account and when priced at $34.99 - it is great value. I would recommend this mouse for anyone looking for an attractive and well functioning mouse who is on a tight budget. At the end of the day when you consider how well it tracks and how it feels in the hand as well as the sick lighting design, the positive elements outweigh the negative areas. . .

QNAP TS-421 4-bay Home & SOHO NAS Review
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
QNAP has introduced a new NAS series with the latest QTS 4.0 Operating System. The unit comes with a single-core Marvell CPU at 2.0GHz, 1GB of RAM and features a lot of connectivity options. On the front it looks pretty much the same as the TS-469L, but now we also have an active LCD screen with two buttons for navigation, but the IR sensor is missing since the unit does not come with a HDMI output.

Fractal Design Newton R3 800-Watt 80 PLUS Platinum Power Supply Review
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design`s Newton R3 series promises plenty in both looks and performance. Find out just how well it does with our review of the 800W model."

GeForce GTX 780 ACX SC
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX 780 is one of today's most popular graphics cards and EVGA's Superclocked series boosts its performance to some impressive levels. Added to this pre-overclocked goodness is a new custom designed ACX cooler which boosts cooling levels and remains blissfully silent.

Gigabyte Z87X-OC Preview @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 3:56A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the most interestinge boards, which is based on Intels new Z87 chipset might be this one, the Z87X-OC from Gigabyte. At a very attractive price point you get no less than four PCI-Express x16 slots as well as a lot of features like Gigabyte OC-Touch buttons as well as voltage read-out points. It will be very interesting to take a closer looks at this particular model."

Kingston HyperX Beast DDR3 16GB 1866MHz Kit Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 3:37A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems that we are seeing more and more products coming from Kingston Technology, since the end of CES. Probably the most impressive product was the new 512GB and 1TB HyperX flash drive. Just imagine walking around with that much storage capacity in your pocket. There are many new products we see coming from Kingston, but one that we love the most are love their memory. We have seen two new models from Kingston just recently and we just got our hands on one of them. The first model would be the new HyperX Beast, which we will be checking out today, and other is the HyperX 10TH anniversary edition. The HyperX Beast seems to be the new top dog from Kingston as it is sporting a new heat sink design. The Beast stays even cooler with it stepping up the ante with a super high frequency of 2400MHZ."

SanDisk Extreme II SSD Review (240GB) - SanDisk Finds That Sweet Spot and Hits a Home Run
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 11:13P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SanDisk Extreme II SSD has shown some of the best test results we have seen to date and they have been consistent. In examining PCMark Vantage alone, surpassing that 70,000 point plateau is hard enough, but scoring between the Samsung Pro and OCZ Vector we truly never believed would occur!"

Jul 27 | Motherboards
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.
