Vantec NexStar HX2R Hard Drive Enclosure Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Oct 25 2013 | 9:51A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Who says you can never have enough storage. Well you really can not have too much. I myself have a few different computers around my house for different tasks, and I like to back them up and also share files over the network. External hard drives and enclosures are a great tool for keeping around your house or even on the go. There are so many different enclosures and NAS boxes on the market. Some do RAID, others do JBOD, some can hold only 1 drive and some can go up to 4 drives. Some of the cool things with the technology of the past few years is that we now have eSATA and USB 3.0. USB 3.0 offers up to 5 Gbps while eSATA offers less speed at around 3 Gbps. So today we will be reviewing the Vantec NexStar HX2R dual SATA Hard Drive Enclosure, so stick around and see if it would make a nice addition to your desk or office."

ASUS Z87 Motherboard Roundup October 2013 @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Fri, Oct 25 2013 | 9:29A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For some time now ASUS haven`t been shy to release a wide range of boards for each socket/CPU. In fact some of their product families are well into the double digits in terms of different models. Size, features, price, performance... all can be tweaked to offer a range that meets the needs of every consumer. And that goes for the high end boards too, under the Republic of Gamer branding. So today we take a look at what they offer there in the form of the Maximus VI Extreme (ATX), Hero (ATX), Gene (mATX) and Impact (mini-ITX)."

’Toshibas competing product comes in the form of the Toshiba Q Series Pro, which we’ll be reviewing today. Toshiba appears to have modeled their SSD lineup off of Samsung’s highly successful 840 Series with Toshiba releasing their latest Q Series and the Q Series Pro SSDs.

Samsung 840 Evo 120 Gigabyte Review
     Fri, Oct 25 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their 1 Terabyte Drive we've already had on new Samsung 840 Evo SSD for review and we were quite surprised. Now it's time we have a closer look at the 120 Gigabyte version of the drive. Usually 120 Gigabyte Drives don't offer the same performance level bigger drives offer, which is why we're really curious to see if Samsung has found a way around this issue.

3M SPR1000 Streaming Projector Powered by Roku Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Oct 25 2013 | 9:01A | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
DESCRIPTION: There are many scenarios where a portable projector can be very useful – for business and for play. Providing a reasonably priced option, 3M Streaming Projector Powered by Roku (SPR1000) can tick both boxes, promising to make it easy to host an impromptu outdoor movie night or presentation using this highly portable, battery powered, 720p projector. Also, because it includes a Roku Streaming Stick in the box all of the over-the-top (OTT) goodness that service provides is available in a just-add-Wi-Fi experience. At $189 ($299 SRP) it almost seems too good to be true; let’s see where this little projector + streamer shine and where it is lacking.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Review: The Phablet Refined
     Fri, Oct 25 2013 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whether you're a fan of oversized smartphones or not, it's clear that they are here to stay. When Samsung initially released the first Galaxy Note, many of us in the industry looked at it a little sideways and wondered what the designers at Samsung were thinking. The original Galaxy Note seemed simply gargantuan next to virtually every other device available at the time and it was somewhat comical to see such a large device perched next to someone's ear when they were making a call. The Note had a transformative effect on the smartphone industry, however. Yes, it was large. But once you've experienced the benefits of a larger screen, it's difficult to turn back, and Samsung sold millions of them. I was originally dismissive of the Note, but after living with the second-gen Note II for a while during the lead-up to our review, I grew accustomed to its size and features and now everything else just seems too small. Since reviewing the Note 2, I've had access to a number of other newer devices, but I keep going back to the Note 2. Take that for what it's worth. As much as we liked the Note 2, technology inevitably marches on, and its successor is now available. The recently released Galaxy Note 3 builds upon the success of the Note and Note II, but with significantly updated hardware, a larger screen, fresh software, and a host of additional features...

ASUS Echelon Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Oct 25 2013 | 8:56A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS impressed us with their ROG Vulcan ANC previously with its distinctive Republic of Gamers decor, but now we take a look at another side of the ASUS audio stable. The ROG Orion was originally made for cross platform use across games consoles and PC, and it was well received. Revamping that with a more targeted approach, namely FPS gamers on the PC, we find the Echelon. With a sleek digital camo design and impressive specifications, there is little to dislike about about this headset on first impressions. Let`s test it out and see how it performs."

HIS Radeon R7 250 iCooler 1GB Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Over the past few days AMD have released their latest range of GPUs, the R9 and R7 200 series.

Lenovo Erazer X700 PC Gaming Computer System Review

Posted by: STAFF
It?s been years since I?ve bought a pre-built desktop computer, so I was interested in the opportunity to check out the Erazer X700 Gaming System that Lenovo offered to us to review. The Erazer occupies a space between the sub-$500 generic boxes most people are satisfied with and the expensive boutique systems at the other end of the scale."

Tt eSports Cronos Review @ Vortez

Posted by: STAFF
If you are a gamer then it is likely that you will recognise the Tt eSports brand because they are known for their vivid and stylish products that illustrate the gaming scene. New to this image is the Cronos gaming headset that is amongst a new creed off headset that gives the choice of LED lighting while using a 3.5mm jack to connect to your discrete sound card. Utilising popular 40mm drivers wrapped in a shell driven by brand recognition, can it deliver the impressive audio quality gamers have come to expect?"

NVIDIA The Way Its Meant to Be Played 2013 Press Event
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 6:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the G-Sync monitors are designed to refresh with your frame rates, dips in FPS no longer affect your experience it`s all buttery smooth through and through. Words only go so far though. Seeing it in person was truly eye-opening. We were shown a live demonstration comparing a regular monitor to a G-Sync monitor with both an NVIDIA-made demo and the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot. You can watch a video I recorded of the whole thing, but keep in mind that the video is impacted by the limitations of my camera. While you`ll be able to notice some clear differences during certain points of the demo, particularly when rotation is enabled on the pendulum demo, the difference was even more striking in person."

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.
