Plextor PlexEasy PX-650US Versatile DVD/CD Burner
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 4:00P | Optical Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Shooting short video clips and taking pictures is something many people do on a daily basis (mainly with their smartphones) so with Christmas just around the corner it's a safe bet that the largest percentage of the global population will spend quite a bit of time doing the same but in a much larger scale. So since we will probably be doing the exact same thing we did our best to find a device that would make our lives easier when sharing our Christmas media collection with both family and friends. Well to our surprise in the end it didn't take that long to find such a device and to be more accurate it was actually delivered to us out of the blue (luck was on our side). So just as the title clearly states we spend the better part of last week testing the latest PlexEasy PX-650US Versatile DVD/CD Burner by Plextor.

Battle of the Army Green Cases: Corsair vs. Thermaltake
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 3:53P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gamers tend to take a lot of pride in building their own rigs, but it's generally not enough to have top-notch performance without the looks to match. Motherboards, for instance, have transformed from generic green slabs to works of art. Interestingly, it seems increasingly common to find aggressive military styling among high-end motherboards. Despite the prevalence of military-themed motherboards, enthusiasts haven't had a whole lot of stock options for matching cases.

www.pcstats.com

Hoping to fill that void, Corsair and Thermaltake have recently released two new chassis. The former updated its Vengeance gaming lineup earlier this year with the C70 case series, which comes in three colors: Arctic White, Gunmetal Black and Military Green. Around the same time, the latter launched Level 10 GT's "Battle Edition" with the same olive drab paint job that Corsair offered for the Vengeance C70.

Seasonic G Series 360W Power Supply Review
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 12:21P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Seasonic G Series is designed for small to mid-size systems and offers many of the same high quality features found in Seasonics high-end PSUs but at a lower price point. The G Series 360W PSU produced excellent voltage regulation with good AC ripple suppression and meets the 80 Plus Gold criteria for efficiency. It comes with a basic assortment of fixed cables and is backed by a 5-year warranty. If you are looking for a major step up from a generic 350W PSU, the Seasonic G-360 deserves consideration."

ASUS P8Z77-V LX review: affordable ASUS Z77 motherboard
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our most recent Z77 motherboard round-up we concluded that, if you're looking for an affordable ATX board, your best options are the Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H, MSI Z77A-G43 and MSI Z77A-G45. The ASUS P8Z77-V LX now joins that club, and here you can see their specifications side-by-side. The Gigabyte and MSIs G45 are in the same price range as the ASUS board, and the MSI G45 is the cheapest at £78.

ASRock Z77 Extreme11 review: with workstation
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
No one would have believed you if you had claimed a few years back that ASRock would release a £320 motherboard. Ever since the former ASUS budget-brand claimed its independence, every year the manufacturer keeps raising the bar with its deluxe high-end boards. It was that time again recently, when it launched the Socket 1155 motherboard Z77 Extreme11. This Ivy Bridge motherboard comes complete with workstation-like features.

Adobe's Flash Updater: Bloated, Confusing & Shady
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 12:00P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being one of the most prolific sources of security vulnerabilities in Windows and other platforms, Adobe Flash Player needs no introduction. In spite of that reputation, and the fact that the rest of the industry is moving away from Flash, Microsoft surprised many of us by bundling the software with its operating system for the first time with Windows 8. This is after previously announcing that they wouldn't allow Flash in the Metro version of Internet Explorer 10 -- a decision the company later reversed. I was glad when the Adobe Flash Player Updater was released in March. Finally the day had come when our machines would be silently updated with the latest Flash version... or so I thought. It'd just seem Adobe is making all possible efforts to make its software more bloated and less attractive to all consumers, here's why.

Thermaltake Level 10 M Gaming Mouse Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 10:56A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now, the new creation of the two has hit the U.S. shores in the form of the Level 10 M gaming mouse. Yes, a mouse. The Level 10 M visually is just as impressive as the chassis. Plagued with many of surface panels and buttons, the Level 10 M could easily intimidate many regular PC users as well as other gaming mice. There has been much talk about the new mouse mostly coming from Thermaltake, so are about to venture into the Level 10 M ourselves and see just what it is all about."

Thermaltake Armor Revo Gene Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 9:14A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltakes original Armor case was one of the first cases that when I saw it I was really impressed. I think it was the large aluminum front doors and the case window that was so big you could see pretty much see everything inside your case. Since the original release Thermaltake has come up with new models expanding and improving on the original case. Today we are taking a look at the latest case in the Armor series the Armor Revo Gene. This mid tower features three 200mm fans, a hot-swap hard drive docking station, USB 3.0 support and many other features. Can this case live up to the original Armor? Read on to find out."

NZXT Phantom 820 Full Tower Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new trend of filling cases with features any enthusiast would enjoy is a great one and NZXT pushed the feature boundaries with the Phantom 820. This case is big, really big, and solid with great fit and finish and nice visual details without getting to far off mainstream looks. We loved the room inside the case and all the cable management options make it hard to have an ugly build in the Phantom 820..."

[DreamWare Computers] SilverStone SG09 mATX Case
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 8:26A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SilverStone, looking to show that with careful case design and component placement you can still have a near ITX sized case for an mATX system, has recently released their SG09 case. The SG09 comes from a long line-up of small form factor cases in SilverStone`s Sugo series, and with such a small size it`s going to prove that you don`t need to abandon the mATX form factor if you want to go smaller!"

DarbeeVision Darblet HDMI Video Processor Review @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 7:26A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Where do I start with this review? A post video processor is something that Ive never had any experience with, its actually something that really never thought about honestly. I have an HDTV and Blu-ray and all that high-definition stuff that weve gotten accustomed to. I always thought high-def was good enough and didnt need any improvement, but reviewing the product I have today I found I was wrong. What I have for review today is the Darblet, yes its kind of weird name, but the whole name is the DarbeeVision Darblet HDMI Video Processor, or Darblet for short! The Darblet sits between your HDTV and any HDMI type device like a Blu-ray player or PlayStation 3. You can put it between your HDTV and home theater system with many devices so you can utilize it with all of them. "

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.
