Zowie G-CM Mousepad @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Feb 12 2013 | 8:28A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to peripherals there are only a few companies that focus on people who are concerned with how their mice, keyboards, and even mouse pads perform over how they look or the lighting effects available. Zowie Gear is one of those companies. When we had the chance to see what all of the talk was about and check out one of their G-CM mouse pads, we jumped at the chance. For some people anything will work for a mousepad, but for those of you who need more you might want to see what we have to say about the Zowie Gear G-CM."

REVIEW Sparkle Calibre X680 @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Feb 12 2013 | 8:12A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s not surprising that we`re seeing more custom graphics cards now, as board partners are looking to differentiate themselves, and also keep interest alive until the next product cycle hit the market. One of those partners is Sparkle, perhaps not as popular in North America as a few other offerings, but today we have a flagship card that looks very interesting: the Sparkle Calibre X680. With a custom heatsink that has the fans mounted below the fins, the Calibre X680 looks different from most other models we`ve seen. Touted as a quiet solution for discerning consumers, the X680 also comes with an aggressive Boost Clock out of the box to provide a horsepower bonus as well. And for those who are cost conscious, it comes with a very competitive price tag of $490 as well, which is considerably cheaper than many competitors` custom offerings. Looks good on paper. Let`s push onward and see if the Sparkle Calibre X680 can match up well in action."

HiFiMAN RE-400 In-ears @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
HiFiMAN`s newest baby, the RE-400 in-ears, are put to the test. The in-ears will retail for $99, and it is clear that HiFiMAN is pulling out all the stops to regain leadership in the sub $99 in-ear segment.

NZXT Phantom 630 Modular Ultra Case Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Tue, Feb 12 2013 | 1:45A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now, there is a sibling to the two cases mentioned and that is the new Phantom 630. The Phantom is not your typical Phantom series case as it was re-designed from the ground up. NZXT task with the 630 was to offer the enthusiast all the comforts one would need in a great case. And looking at it there are features and tweaks that you wouldn`t even realize that are there."

OCZ Vector 256GB Solid State Drive Review @ OCIA.net
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 10:13P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Today we take a look at a new Solid State Drive offering from OCZ, the Vector Series SATA III SSD. The Vector joins the Vertex models in OCZ`s High-Performance category drives, touting a 7mm low profile design, Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller and either 128GB, 256GB or 512GB capacities. Like the Vertex 4 that Shawn reviewed last year, the Vector Series touts an impressive 5-year warranty.

Gigabyte Force M7 Thor @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 7:55P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Deciding on a mouse can be an overwhelming process with literally hundreds to choose from as far as gaming mice alone. Seeing as how the mouse and keyboard are the only two things you interact with while on the computer, having the right mouse is very important. Selecting the right mouse for you can be a daunting task, but knowing where to start is even harder. There are still quite a few entry level mice on the market, and Gigabyte has kindly send over their version, the Force M7 Thor. Lets take a look at this affordable piece of hardware and see how it holds up."

FSP Raider 550w Review - XSReviews
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 5:12P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A lot of companies are in the PSU game, which is why it`s important to make sure the one you`re buying is a good one. Or at least, one that won`t damage your system. Because that can happen with a cheap unit and while here at XSR we might not have all the fancy testing facilities of the bigger boys, we can make sure that yours won`t overload your components at the first opportunity. So today I`m looking at the FSP Raider, the 550w baby version. Let`s throw it into our test setup and see how it gets on. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Kingston SSD Now 300V 120GB Review
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 1:43P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SSD Now series drives are offered in several ways to fit consumers tastes. The 120GB drive I tested today is offered as a bare drive, as a desktop upgrade kit, or as a notebook upgrade kit. The desktop upgrade kit I am looking at is priced at $114 putting the kit at less than $1 a gigabyte for a drive with reasonable capacity. If 120GB of capacity is not enough the SSD Now V300 drive is available in a 240GB version as well as a 60GB version. At only 7mm thick, this V300 drive is a perfect candidate for use in the latest crop of slim notebooks and Ultrabooks."

Long time Eyefinity users will likely be familiar with the Display Port Link Failure message, interrupting their gaming session and ruining their immersion. Drivers, right? Perhaps not, maybe it`s the cable - and an ecosystem certification problem."

Razer Kraken Pro Gaming Headset Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 11:28A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kraken Pro Analog Gaming Headset was a product that I received after competing in the annual Tiger Direct PC Race. Only after the event was over and all the hoopla from CES calmed down did we decide that the Kraken Pro was one of the products we received that we legitimately wanted to review. Razer has a history of making wild claims regarding PC products, i.e. The Razer Blade: The Worlds First Gaming Laptop or the Razer Edge Pro: The Worlds First Gaming Tablet but with the Kraken Pro they are making a claim based on one of the most subjective topics in product reviewscomfort. The Kraken Pro has a lot to live up to, especially when you make a claim like that, so lets see how it holds up."

Microsoft Surface Windows 8 Pro Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 11:19A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tablets with mobile operating systems like Android, iOS, or Windows RT are perfectly adequate if your tasks center on the Internet. But if you need compatibility with older x86 programs in a slate tablet form factor, then you need one running Windows 8. Of the handful introduced lately, the Microsoft Surface Windows 8 Pro is the one to beat."
