GIGABYTE Fly and H11 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Aug 09 2013 | 9:50A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One may not immediately think of GIGABYTE when considering personal audio peripherals, however, since the quiet release of the FLY and H11, it is clear to see that they are cautiously dipping their toes in that realm. Though listed as `PC Peripherals` these are definitely more catered towards the use on portable gadgets. The H11 is a sleek, all aluminium set of earphones powered by 9mm drivers and for those who do not find earphones all that pleasing, the FLY is an ultra-lightweight on-ear solution with 40mm drivers crammed in."

ASRock Z87 Professional Series Fatal1ty Motherboard
     Fri, Aug 09 2013 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Over the last few years we have seen ASRock jump ahead in the motherboard arena, having developed some rock solid motherboards at very affordable prices in the last couple of years. With almost every flagship motherboard from ASRock, we have seen top performers when it comes to overclocking and stability. Not only has ASRock performed well in the past, they have great aesthetic appeal too. We’re looking at the new ASRock Z87 Professional Series Fatal1ty Motherboard. With Haswell now in full swing, we have seen a number of great performers out there. Let’s put this motherboard to the test and see what it can do with our Intel 4770K Haswell Processor.”

Genius Ring Style Wireless Presenter Review
     Fri, Aug 09 2013 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Genius is a fairly new company in North America where peripherals and computer hardware are concerned, but they have quickly turned heads by creating very unique products. From mobile Bluetooth scanners to arcade sticks, their repertoire of ideas is impressive.One such example is the Ring Style Wireless Presenter. Genius has a plethora of different ring-styled mice, but this is the first circular model that is designed around their laser pointer series, which from Genius (and others) have traditionally been bulky.

Home Monitor Indoor Security Camera Review - XSReviews
     Fri, Aug 09 2013 | 6:19A | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While smartphone apps and mobile connectivity are often touted for lots of things, be it fitness, media viewing, navigation or a whole host of other facilities, security isn`t one that`s touched on quite as much. Hoping to turn that trend around is Home Monitor, a home security camera system that hooks right up to your home network and gives you a chance to check in from wherever you are. While I`m afraid this review won`t feature any of the usual overclocking or synthetic benchmarks, let`s take this camera for a spin and see if it can make us feel a bit safer. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

ROCCAT Isku FX keyboard
     Thu, Aug 08 2013 | 4:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the test bench today is the ROCCAT Isku FX, a new version of the Isku that adds a 16.8 million color backlight system to the mix. While most new high-end keyboards offer mechanical switches, the Isku FX sticks to the traditional, cheaper membranes. Geared towards gamers, the Isku FX offers eight dedicated, programmable macro keys, Easy-Shift[+] to give the keys around the WASD zone a second functionality, and on-the-fly macro recording thanks to a dedicated record button.

Samsung WB800F Smart Camera Review
     Thu, Aug 08 2013 | 4:01P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Point-and-shoots almost seem like a last option while shopping for cameras nowadays, while phone cameras constantly improve optics and quality. It’s tough to compete in a market so saturated with endless high and low end fixed lens options. This generation of point-and-shoot cameras needs a few things to compete with the onslaught, such as excellent optics, wireless connectivity - and they have to be easy to use. Samsung does a great job with their WB800F Smart Camera, implementing most of those features in an innovative way. Cramming a 1/2.3? BSI CMOS sensor with a 21X optical zoom with an exceptionally high 16.3 megapixel count, Samsung manages to offer a decent amount of specs for $269 while coming in cheaper than the competition. We will see just how much value you can get out of the WB800F at its modest price-point.

Posted by: STAFF
The Sentey Solid Power SS series of power supplies has 550 W, 650 W, 750 W, and 850 W models, all with the standard 80 Plus certification. Today we are going to dissect the 850 W model (SDP850-SS), which uses a resonant configuration in its primary and DC-DC and synchronous designs in its secondary, features that are usually only seen on high-efficiency power supplies with at least the 80 Plus Bronze certification. Let`s see if we were surprised by this product."

AMD Driver Charts - 13.8 Beta Tested @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Aug 08 2013 | 12:45P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For manufacturers of graphics cards, it`s not only important to have a highly complex chip, their actual drivers need to be optimized to the last bit. Therefore it`s a small wonder that GPU manufacturers release lots of driver updates during the year, making sure, there are no compatbility issues as well as increasing performance. In theses charts we tested 16 different drivers, and we will keep adding newer versions in future."

Logitech G700s @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Aug 08 2013 | 12:20P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past few years I could count on one hand all of the wireless gaming mice that have been introduced, its just something that you rarely see. That is because a lot of gamers will push back citing wireless lag and battery life issues. Those issues can be an issue, but there are still a lot of people who end up gaming with their everyday wireless mice because of the lack of gaming options. That is where the Logitech G700s comes in; this is Logitechs only wireless gaming mouse. With that in mind I was excited to see how the G700s compared to both the G500s and the other wireless mice that we have tested in the past."
