Datacolor SpyderHD Color Calibration for PC TV and Camera Review - BCCHardware
     Mon, May 05 2014 | 9:05A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This kit really offers quality - not just in the build, but in the performance it delivers. The Spyder HD delivers on not just most of their claims, but in every single one that we`ve tested. If you are into photography or video and want the best results with the least effort, give this kit a shot. You won`t be disappointed."

Mach Xtreme DIY Series SATA-DOM 32GB SSD Review
     Mon, May 05 2014 | 7:14A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Todays review is of the Mach Xtreme DIY series 32GB (MLC) SATA-DOM, a SATA II (3.0GB/s) miniaturized SSD designed for high-read, low-write usage scenarios that only require a small operating system; such as NAS enclosures, routers, set-top boxes, point-of-sale devices, hand-held devices, gaming machines, etc. Mach Xtreme Technology is a Taiwanese producer of high-performance solid state storage products for both industrial applications and for power users. Mach Xtreme has a strong presence in the European markets, but has yet to gain a significant foothold in North America. That could easily change with a unique offering such as the DIY series of SATA-DOMs."

Sapphire Vapor-X R9 290 Tri-X OC Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, May 05 2014 | 3:11A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon R9 290 GPU came out in November 2013 making it almost 6 months old and while it isn?t the top of the line model it still has some impressive specifications.  Powered by a single 28nm AMD Hawaii GPU it features 2560 Stream processors running at 947MHz and 4GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5000MHz.  Sapphire has taken those specifications and boosted them a little with their Overclocked edition.  The Stream processors are running at 1030MHz and the 4GB GDDR5 memory has been clocked to 5600MHz. Sapphire doesn?t stop there they have also added their Tri-X Cooling which features three fans rather than the standard two fans..."

Silicon Power 32GB Superior microSDHC UHS-1 Flash Card Review @ Madshrimps
     Mon, May 05 2014 | 2:05A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Superior 32GB UHS-1 microSDHC cards from Silicon Power are the new high-speed variants while keeping the same footprint. The current model has rated speeds of 90MB/s reads and 45 MB/s writes and succeeds to distance itself quite a bit from the Class 10 variants. The new cards can be used in old readers too (are backwards compatible) but this way we will not be able to benefit from the enhancements these offer."

CyberPower Zeus Mini-I 780 Gaming System Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, May 05 2014 | 1:47A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back when we visited CyberPower at CES in January they were showing off a new custom designed case they had called the Zeus Mini. The whole idea behind this case was to give users the ability to create a full-fledged gaming system, completed with a full-sized graphics card and much more. Today we are going to be taking a look at a custom gaming machine that CyberPower has put together using their Zeus Mini case. It is the Zeus Mini-I 780 and it comes with an Intel i7-4770K, GeForce GTX 780, 16GB of DDR3 and much more. Will this make the perfect LAN rig? Read on as we find out!"

In Win 901 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, May 04 2014 | 2:08P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few years In Win has really stepped up their game. They have been introducing limited edition case designs that are extremely unique and nothing like anything else on the market. After the first few designs I assumed they would run out of ideas but they have continued to innovate by incorporating tempered glass into some of the case designs. As most of you know I am a big fan of Mini-ITX builds so when In Win asked me if I wanted to check out their 901, a Mini-ITX case that incorporates some of the unique features of their concept chassis."

Xigmatek`s Nebula is a compact Mini-ITX chassis that utilizes an interesting mixture of materials and comes with the ability to hold a fully sized ATX PSU and dual-slot graphics card. But will it look as elaborate on the inside as it does on the outside, or is this Nebula not hiding any secrets of the universe?"

Posted by: STAFF
A headset of any kind is a very important accessory for your PC. Whether you are gaming or simply listening to music a headset allows you to immerse yourself in what you are doing on your PC. ROCCATs original Kave 5.1 headset was a huge hit and their mission with the new Kave XTD 5.1 Digital was to rebuild the successful headset from the ground up. One thing that really sets this headset apart from others is the desktop remote, which acts as an audio command center for your PC. Will this be the best headset we have seen all year?

PAPAGO P2Pro Full HD DashCam
     Sat, May 03 2014 | 3:11A | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Three years ago while i was driving on the far right lane of the interstate a car with half erased license plates pulled up from the center lane and onto the far right side of the road and although i managed to avoid hitting him dead on i couldn`t control the rear end of my car so the rear right wing ended up getting severely damaged. Unfortunately by the time i pulled over and got out of my car the guy had already gotten into his car and left and although i did try to chase him i lost him in traffic. So i ended up having to pay for the damage from my own pocket (actually my insurance covered 70% and that`s pretty much the only good thing about all this). Looking back i now know that this entire incident could had been avoided had i used an dash camera like i do now since i would have recorded the car and the visible part of its license plate. Todays review is about one such product and more specifically the latest P2Pro Drive Recorder by PAPAGO."

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.
