AOC e1659Fwu USB Monitor Review @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Nov 05 2013 | 11:21A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the introduction of USB monitors using DisplayLink technology, adding a portable external monitor such as todays review item is as simple as plugging in a thumb drive. AOCs previous USB based monitor the e1649Fwu used USB 2.0 for the connection, while todays review model the e1659Fwu USB Monitor uses the faster USB 3.0 connection. This connection theoretically will provide higher quality images through the higher bandwidth of the faster USB format."

Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK Review @MissingRemote
     Tue, Nov 05 2013 | 11:08A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For home theater PC (HTPC) enthusiasts the news that Intel was leaving the retail motherboard market cut deeply. After all, many of the features we have come to expect, like an Intel network interface card (NIC), consumer infrared (CIR), and outstanding stability along with innovations specific to our market, such as the custom solutions (aka HTPC) header, looked likely to slowly fade away. Fortunately--at least for now--these concerns have proved meritless because the output of that decision, the Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK contains each of these features along with something that was previously unattainable to DIY a 15W TDP integrated processor graphics (IPG). Running $342 in bulk, the cost of the 1.3-2.6GHz Intel Core i5-4250U makes up much of the $360 (estimated SRP) we expect the D54250WYK barebones to retail for. While not cheap, it certainly appears a good value if the Haswell iteration of the NUC can deliver the perfect client HTPC. *"

Assassins Creed II 4-Years Later Review
     Tue, Nov 05 2013 | 10:58A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is Assassin`s Creed II a memory to relive or to forget? In my opinion, definitely the former. It is a very fun game with plenty to do, and you are rewarded for all of it. There are some places it could be better, but it also has a lot of places that need no improvements, though they would be welcome. The graphics stand up for their age, but do show some wrinkles here and there. The gameplay is a solid experience with many well designed and implemented mechanics, all of which add depth. The story is also superb; especially considering it is for a video game. I would honestly expect something with its intricacies to be limited to the written word, but it succeeds in this interactive medium of video games. Four-years-old or not, this game deserves attention for its quality."

Fractal Design Define R4 Case @ TechwareLabs.com
     Tue, Nov 05 2013 | 9:29A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are two main schools of thought when it comes to enthusiast case design. One can be thought of as attention-seeking: make it as flashy, splashy, and eye catching as possible. The other is most often described as minimalist: strip the design down to bare essentials, keep the design accents subtle. Fractal Design has an established reputation in the second school, and today were going to be taking a look at one of their latest efforts: the Define R4."

In Win BATMAT mousepad
     Mon, Nov 04 2013 | 12:01P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“When we think of mouse pads we think about square-ish floppy foam, or even thin textured plastic ones that slide around and have to be secured to the desk just to stay in one place. With earlier versions of mouse pads we were constantly making sure they were clean or overly careful of spilling something on them. Well friends, we don’t have to worry about that anymore. The In Win BATMAT mouse pad is washable, water resistant and scratch resistant because it is constructed with aluminum. That’s right folks, just throw it in the dishwasher and call it good.”

NZXT H230 Computer Case Review
     Mon, Nov 04 2013 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The H230 is called by NZXT as a Classic Design. Minimal Hassle. Budget Case. Some of those statements I would have to agree upon, but I think you get more than what a normal budget case offers.

NVIDIA G-Sync explained (article)
     Mon, Nov 04 2013 | 11:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,On Friday NVIDIA announced G-Sync, and considering the little details available out there I wanted to write a quick follow-up on this new technology, as it really is a big announcement - a really big thing actually. NVIDIA G-SYNC is a solution that pretty much eliminates screen tearing, VSync input lag, and stutter. You need a G-SYNC module into monitors, allowing G-SYNC to synchronize the monitor to the output of the GPU."

AMD Radeon R9 290X Hawaii - The Configurable GPU?
     Mon, Nov 04 2013 | 11:21A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s claim the that the R9 290X is an enthusiast configurable GPU does have some merit though. I would agree that most users purchasing a $500+ graphics card will have a basic knowledge of the control panel and its settings. Gamers will be able to get some extra performance out of the R9 290X by simply increasing the maximum fan speed as long as they are comfortable with the increased sound levels."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
