Sandisk Ultra Plus 256GB and Extreme II 240GB SSD review
     Thu, Nov 07 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sandisk Ultra Plus 256GB and Extreme II 240GB both made an excellent impression. The Ultra Plus 256GB is the cheapest 256 GB SSD we've tested. While it's not a stand-out in terms of performance, it performs well enough overall, and it's also very energy efficient. It offers a lot of value for your money, so we can definitely recommend the Ultra Plus 256GB if you're looking for an affordable upgrade for your laptop.

Lian Li PC-10N Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Nov 07 2013 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lian Li`s PC-10N is an all-aluminium mid-tower which besides allowing for a 240mm radiator to be placed on a hinged bracket, relinquishes the traditional motherboard tray and instead makes use of a rail mount design. Will this alternate solution work in Lian Li`s favour? Read on to find out!"

Review: Seagate 600 480GB SSD @ Custom PC Review
     Thu, Nov 07 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you may expect, today we’ll be doing a review on the Seagate 600 480GB, which is Seagate’s entry level SSD and their only consumer oriented offering. The next step up, the Seagate 600 Pro is a enterprise oriented SSD focused on highly consistent performance and data security. That said, let’s take a look at what the Seagate 600 offers..."

Samsung 840 EVO 750GB
     Thu, Nov 07 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Samsung is bringing a few new features to the table here with the 840 EVO SSD, but what’s utterly special that we hope pushes the boundaries further ahead, is something new called RAPID Mode. Sounds simple enough, but the performance increases from RAPID are anything but ordinary. In short, RAPID will move you out of the data transfer slow lane and onto the digital Autobahn like you’ve never before experienced. Buckle up and let’s take a closer look at the Samsung EVO 750GB and see just what this SSD can do.”

Day One: Garrys Incident Review
     Thu, Nov 07 2013 | 8:56A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I mentioned earlier in the review, I do not feel the current $20 price tag is justified at this time, but with a little work, Wild Games Studio can certainly change that. The studio has already done a great job squashing bugs and fulfilling player requests (including FOV adjustment added just prior to release based on customer feedback), so the potential is certainly there. At the very least, add Day One to your wishlist so Steam notifies you when it goes on sale. By the time the next big Steam Sale comes around, the game may be updated enough where it becomes a steal."

AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Nov 07 2013 | 6:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The R9 290 is a rare card; it competes well against higher-priced NVIDIA and AMD offerings (including the mighty R9 290X) while selling for just $399. Does that sound like a near-perfect approach? You bet!"

ICY DOCK MB992SK-B Dual 2.5in Enclosure Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Wed, Nov 06 2013 | 4:35P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ICY DOCK MB992SK-B Dual 2.5in Enclosure Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Almost all of us have spare drive bays on the front of our PCs and a fair number of us have either got spare parts kicking about or have run out of space inside our system for hard drives. Icy Dock are looking to problems like these with their drive racks/cages which are designed to add storage space to our otherwise empty front of case bays. One such model is the MB992SK-B which we have on our test bench today."

HiFiMAN RE-600 In-ears @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Nov 06 2013 | 1:06P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HiFiMAN`s newest high-end in-ear gets put to the test. The RE-600s are a beefed up version of the RE-400s we loved. The price has also been hiked up to $399, making it just as expensive as several great in-ears, like the UE900s. We test the RE-600s to find out whether the asking price is justified!"

NVIDIA G-Sync: Death of the Refresh Rate
     Wed, Nov 06 2013 | 11:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
G-Sync essentially functions by altering and controlling the vBlank signal sent to the monitor. In a normal configuration, vBlank is a combination of the combination of the vertical front and back porch and the necessary sync time. That timing is set a fixed stepping that determines the effective refresh rate of the monitor; 60 Hz, 120 Hz, etc. What NVIDIA will now do in the driver and firmware is lengthen or shorten the vBlank signal as desired and will send it when one of two criteria is met."
