Y-Cam Bullet HD 1080 (2nd Generation) Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Nov 22 2014 | 6:28A | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year, Y-Cam announced their 2nd Generation Bullet HD 1080 - A revised version of the original Bullet HD 1080, with some key improvements. Y-Cam has carefully refined the original camera by tweaking minor elements, the most obvious difference is the visual appearance; the camera now has an elegant, subtle style with much smaller dimensions and yet it appears that quality hasn`t been compromised upon."

Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV Case Review
     Fri, Nov 21 2014 | 5:18P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV must be experienced up close and in person to be understood and to be fully appreciated. This case sets the bar high in the premiere level cases in the same company with well known excellence as Lian Li or Siverstone products and may even surpass those in unique features here and there. This all new design for the Phanteks m-itx or uATX case builders? features an all new tool-free release system for the front cover that is released the same as any high end HI FI speaker grills are and some high quality cases with mechanical spring loaded action quick release designs. Actually the Lian Li uses a system very close to this design for their tool less release panels. The Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV has it all, and maybe even more than you might expect for a high end case no matter what your skill level or your custom ideals, inspiration?s or budgets. This is not a showy design but it could be. It has a true minimalistic quality that can only be appreciated up close and personally to see what it is really like. Like a fine wine or a beautiful woman it hides it?s best qualities for only the special few that are able to get close enough to appreciate their true appeal."

TweakTowns Apple iPhone 6 Plus Smartphone Review
     Fri, Nov 21 2014 | 1:07P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink

After a week using Apple`s biggest iPhone yet, I`ve found myself enjoying the bigger changes, but the company still has an uphill battle against Google."

Gigabyte-Z97X-UD3H Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, Nov 21 2014 | 10:35A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z97X-UD3H from Gigabyte appears to be a rather interesting Z97 based motherboard. At a first glance you get a good looking board for a highly resonable price. Other than that there is even a SATA-Express port as well as an M.2 slot, which adds to storage flexibility. Overall we`re quite curious to see what else this board has to offer."

Diamond USB 3.0/2.0 to HDMI/DVI Mini Ultra Dock Review
     Fri, Nov 21 2014 | 10:07A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With USB 3.0 up and working, the Ultra Dock still gave me rather mixed feelings. It was nice that it no longer appeared broken, but the performance wasn`t quite what I was hoping for. The tablet, as expected, was limited a bit by the Bay Trail CPU in it, but it did quite well considering. Having a full on beast of a machine, the numbers were just sad. The reads and writes were at least better than straight up wireless, which I guess is the real purpose and convinence. It is plenty enough for surfing the Internet and is actually good enough for in-home streaming and gaming; it just won`t be as fast as you might expect. Perhaps it`s just some bug that needs to be worked out on Diamond`s end still, but at least it is all functional upfront."

Tt eSport PoseidonZ Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, Nov 21 2014 | 6:28A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The market for gaming peripherals never sleeps, and today we`re having a close look at a product from Tt eSports. This particular keyboard comes with Kailh switches, which are very similar to CherryMX brown and apart from that there basically no additional features. The only thing you get on top is a blue backlight. "

Crucial MX100 512GB Solid State Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Nov 20 2014 | 7:20P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have been following technology for quite a while and in that time I have witnessed the birth of solid state drives and many companies bringing them to the masses. When they first came out like all new technology they were very expensive. I remember when many people were debating on getting a new graphics card or a solid state drive. The past couple of years have been kind to the consumer with solid state drives continuing to drop in price. Most people are able to afford a solid state drive for at least their OS drive. The best way to cut costs and keep drives competitive is to decrease the lithography of the NAND that is inside the drive. This is the case for the drive we are taking a look at today. It features Microns new 16nm 128Gbit MLC NAND. The drive that I am talking about is the Crucial MX100. The 512 GB version that we are reviewing today is currently selling for a little over $200, which if you can remember that is what most 128GB drives were selling for just a couple of years ago. The MX100 effectively replaces Crucials M500 solid state drive while the MX550 still remains as their high performance offering. The 512 GB version of the MX100 offers sequential read and write speeds of 550 MB/s and 500 MB/s respectively. Lets see what this drive can do!"

Silicon Power Thunder T11 120 GB @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Nov 20 2014 | 1:12P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thunderbolt may not be a very wide-spread interface in the Windows domain, but nearly every modern Apple notebook or desktop features such a connector. Silicon Power aims to leverage this high-speed interface with the Thunder T11 series, offering 120 GB or 240 GB capacities for less than a Lacie or OWC alternative."

Transcend MTS800 M.2 2280 SATA SSD Review (128GB)
     Thu, Nov 20 2014 | 1:07P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink

NZXT S340 Mid-Tower Case Review
     Thu, Nov 20 2014 | 10:07A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of the H440 earlier this year, NZXT made it clear what their new approach into the already crammed case market will be in it?s upcoming models. Following this trend, Benchmark Reviews will be testing the NZXT S340, a more ?stripped? down version of the already great H440, which still features a similar simple design with a minimalistic design, putting functionality and efficiency above all things."

Crucial Desktop DDR4 Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Nov 19 2014 | 7:20P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You won`t find highly polished packaging, oversized heatsinks nor overclocked XMP profiling. What you get is a basic memory kit that performs as it should yet costing less than half that of more extravagant offerings."
