Pakuma Choroka K2 Laptop Messenger Bag Review @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Mar 11 2013 | 3:23P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are a mobile society, we take quite a bit with us and that includes laptops which arent exactly heavy duty and durable. Lets face it, accidents happen, so I figure why not be prepared and at least protect your electronics with a decent bag or case? Today for review I have the Pakuma Choroka K2 laptop messenger bag that will fit laptops up to 15.4 in size. This laptop isnt inexpensive, but its not overly expensive either, it sells for about $50 and I think its well worth it. The K2 bag features the Pakuma Cocoon system to protect your laptop, which uses memory foam to keep your laptop from getting damaged. The bag also has plenty of room for everything you need for the day, and theres an abundance or pockets to help keep things organized and separated. So read on to learn more "

NZXT HALE90 V2 1000W PSU - BCCHardware
     Mon, Mar 11 2013 | 3:13P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT HALE90 V2 1000W PSU is in the middle of the road when it comes to NZXT`s new V2 line of HALE90 PSUs as they range from 850W to a full 1200W, and are geared toward consumers with high-end PCs with two or more video cards. Our test system included some pretty hefty hardware as well as an extra 12v load and it handled it easily. It pushes out a lot of watts through the single +12v line and proves to be solid, stable and it runs very cool. . ."

AZiO Levatron GH808 USB Gaming Headset Review
     Mon, Mar 11 2013 | 12:04P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Will this headset make you grin when you get shot at in Call of Duty, Battlefield 3, or Bioshock: Infinite? Absolutely, unequivocally, and without a doubt. At the same time they will probably make many cringe slightly when listening to well-known music or movies with deep bass tracks. For gaming, however, they do provide an exceptional level of interaction that is hard to match with many other similarly-priced headsets."

Gigabyte GA-Z77-HD4 Motherboard Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Mar 11 2013 | 10:28A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte Z77-HD4 supports the latest Intel Ivy Bridge processors as well as previous generation Sandy Bridge CPUs. The Gigabyte Z77-HD4 straddles the line between mainstream and entry-level segments. On one hand, the Gigabyte Z77-HD4 is priced lower than most ATX Z77 motherboards but it has flexible integrated graphics options in the form of HDMI and DisplayPort outputs in addition to the DVI and D-SUB outputs in the rear I/O. Unlike most entry-level mainboards, the Z77-HD4 carries the Ultra Durable 4 stamp from Gigabyte, meaning it is comprised of high quality components including glass-fabric PCB, solid Japanese capacitors, ESD resistant ICs and Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs. The Z77-HD4`s glass fabric PCB design protects against electrical shorts caused by humidity over time, while better components ensure higher temperature and voltage tolerances, therefore resulting in a longer lifespan for the mainboard. The Z77-HD4 also comes with dual UEFI BIOS which allows the system to recover immediately should anything happen to the main BIOS. The Gigabyte Z77-HD4 comes with a 3-year warranty."

TP-LINK TL-WDR3500 Wireless N600 Router Review
     Sun, Mar 10 2013 | 11:53A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Throughout out testing the TP-Link TL-WDR3500 was rock solid with no drops of signal during our use. Once the router was set up, operation was seamless. Many people will appreciate the fact that you can set the router up out of the box with some level of security to your wireless devices in less than 10 minutes using the included Setup Wizard software.
