Corsair HX850 Gold Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Mon, Jul 30 2012 | 11:09A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even though the original Corsair HX850 power supply received the 80 Plus Gold certification, Corsair decided to downgrade it to the 80 Plus Silver certification, as the manufacturer felt the 80 Plus Gold levels couldn`t be sustained at high temperatures. (Wouldn`t it be great if all manufacturers had this kind of concern?) Now Corsair is releasing a revamped version of its HX850, the HX850 Gold. Let`s see if this new version is a good product."

     Mon, Jul 30 2012 | 9:52A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Western Digital recently launched their third-generation VelociRaptor hard disk drive, which continues to be the world`s only 10,000 RPM hard disk drive with a SATA interface.

Let`s take a closer look!"

Tt eSPORTS Saphira Gaming Mouse Review - XSReviews
     Mon, Jul 30 2012 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This mouse is marked out from its bretheren on the Tt eSPORTS website through its designer -- the StarCraft player White-Ra. White-Ra is a well known figure in the StarCraft II gaming community -- the Ukranian Protoss is overwhelming well mannered towards friends, opponents and fans alike and his gramatically deviant sayings set him apart. The two most famous are `We make expand then defense it` and `special tactics!` This mouse takes inspiration from the latter phrase, but will it be able to become as well loved as its designer? Let`s find out. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

     Mon, Jul 30 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, two fast Crucial m4 128GB SSDs were tested in RAID0 to get more performance. Regarding TRIM there are still weak points for a SSD RAID, but the ocinside.de review will show if this is really important. The team of 2x Crucial m4 128GB in RAID0 is compared against 1x 256GB Crucial m4 and against 1x 128GB Crucial m4. We will see who keeps one step ahead and if it is better to buy one large SSD or two smaller SSDs.

Manhattan Stealth Touch Mouse review
     Mon, Jul 30 2012 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Manhattan Stealth Touch Mouse is a very stylish mouse suitable for left- and right-handed people. It has no physical buttons whatsoever. You do hear a click when you nudge the area where traditionally the left or right mouse button is situated. The fact that it's wireless and small makes it best suited for on-the-go use with a laptop. The PowerPoint slide feature is a practical extra feature as well.

Posted by: STAFF
So your computer has seen its heyday and now it seems that it is slower than it once was.

SSD NEWS: OCZ Agility 4 256GB SSD Review ? Workhorse Performance and Top Value
     Mon, Jul 30 2012 | 7:40A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A measuring stick seems to have evolved in the SSD arena where performance can be separated by the type of data being tested. Some SSDs excel in transferring compressible data while others in incompressible data, such as we might see in music, video and photography. Our report today will evaluate the new OCZ Agility 4 256GB SSD which houses the Indilinx Everest 2 platform, a platform that has been a true leader in incompressible data testing as seen in our Vertex 4 review this past April."

Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4590 Multifunction Printer Review
     Mon, Jul 30 2012 | 4:20A | Printers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that, As much as wed like to move toward a completely digital lifestyle, physical paper still serves a very important role in our daily lives and this is particularly true when it comes to running a business. While the EPSON WorkForce Pro WP-4590 probably isnt suitable for a high-volume office in a downtown high-rise, it does appear to be a suitable multi-function solution for much smaller offices or home offices. But how does it stand up against daily use and abuse? What can we expect in terms of usability and bonus features? And what about print speed and quality? Lets dive straight into these questions and more with todays review. *"

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.

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.
