Samsung 840 Pro SSD review
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 3:34A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,In this article we test, benchmark and review the Samsung 840 Pro SSD. What a stunning piece of technology this is. An SSD that is extremely fast and actually amongst the handful of fastest storage units we have ever tested. Samsung created a little monster with the 840 Pro series of SSDs, they are remarkably fast in pretty much any and all tests from our benchmark suite. Head on over into the review."

Arctic Dual USB Car Charger @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 12:19A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
People love their portable electronics, and can`t get escape without their phone, tablet, and digital multimedia devices in tow. We take our ebook readers with us everywhere, carry a Bluetooth wireless headset for calls on the road, and occasionally find time to take pictures with the digital camera. All of these devices require power, and when you`re away from home it`s hard to keep batteries charged during long trips or after prolonged use. Every vehicle has a 12V cigarette lighter receptacle, but most lack USB power outlets. Arctic Cooling offers the Dual USB Car Charger (model PSAEQ-AC01901-BL) to keep your devices working while on the road, with two USB ports and the ability to fast-charge at up to 2.1 amps of power."

Hitman: Absolution (PC) Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 12:18A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Much has changed with the Hitman series since it took a hiatus six years ago, both in and out of game. Hitman: Absolution has been released through a new publisher, and has been developed with a new direction in the story. Do these changes bring us closer to hitting the mark of excellence, or should the series have stayed in purgatory?"

Fractal Design Node 605 HTPC Case @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 11:59P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Fractal Design Node 605 certainly sets itself apart from other HTPC cases on the market. The Fractal Design Node 605 comes in looking for all the world like a piece of ultra-high end audio equipment more so than a small form factor computer case, with a sleek black brushed aluminum face and soft touch power button. Of course, there is more going on with the Node 605 than what you see from the outside. Down at the bottom is a very discreet flip down door that houses front audio, two USB 3.0, Firewire and a built in card reader, all that you would hope for in an entertainment unit. While fitting in with your high end audio, the internals of the Node 605 can house some serious computer components, including a full sized ATX motherboard. Not to be sold short on cooling, the Node 605 comes equipped with two 120mm R2 fans with room for one more 120mm and two 80mm. A side mounted three speed fan controller takes care of the stock fans plus one more optional fan."

Windows 7 Media Center
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 4:03P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Enough about software, let’s talk about Hardware. Hardware wise, building a Home Theater PC is a completely different animal compared to building a gaming rig or distributed computing machine. Simply put, we’re building a PC that will connect to a TV, be controlled by a remote control and pump audio and video to your home theater. Normally important factors like cost, performance and heat, take a back seat in a HTPC, to two often ignored factors, power efficiency and noise. Things like cost, performance and heat generally are not an issue with a HTPC because we don’t need use cutting edge components to do what we want. We just need a solid machine that can run for long periods of time without breaking the bank in power costs. I liken it to a game machine being a thoroughbred racehorse and a HTPC being a work horse that just does what needs to be done without a whole lot of fuss."

The ASUS Matrix Platinum HD 7970
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the world of graphics cards there a lot of also-rans, cards that were released but didn't really leave a mark on the industry. Reference cards are a dime a dozen (not really, though $0.10 HD 7970s sounds like a great thing to me) and when the only thing vendors can compete on is price it is very hard to make a compelling argument for one card over another. The ASUS Matrix Platinum HD 7970 that we are looking at today in no way suffers from these problems - it is a custom design with unique features that really give it the ability to stand out from the clogged quarters of the GPU shelf.

fighting it every step of the way
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 4:01P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Someday perhaps we’ll actually arrive at a point where consumers are able to pick channels ‘a la carte’ and only pay for the channels they actually want to watch. The technology to make such a thing a reality is already here, but the current cable/satellite companies are fighting it every step of the way, not wanting to lose their cash cow. At some point it’s inevitable that we will come to some sort of ‘a la carte’ option, but my gut tells me that whoever is providing the new service will find a way to make it cost as much as we are paying now even though we’ll be losing access to all those extra channels."

Lian Li PC-X2000FN Review
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Under the spotlight today is Lian Li’s new monolith PC-X2000FN. Standing tall at over 69cm (27”) Lian Li have given this chassis the slogan – “I came, I saw, I conquered” a saying rumoured to have been written by Julius Caesar and implying total victory over a foe. And so X2000FN is laden with a catalogue of features and luxurious craftsmanship akin to the associated name.

WD Red 3TB NAS Hard Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 2:17P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Western Digital Red series was designed for NAS servers and it leaves us wondering why no one did this before! Industry analysts believe that the NAS market will greatly expand in the years to come and WD now has a product to fill the void that was present. Buying the least expensive drive at your desired capacity and using it in a NAS was the popular way to find drives to populate a NAS, but now there is a hard drive series made just for NAS and RAID environments..."

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.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review

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.
