Patriot Memory PBO Alpine Media Player @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Jul 25 2012 | 9:10A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Watching streaming content or downloaded multimedia files have replaced television broadcasts and movies on disc, especially for college aged viewers who own a SmartPhone device. The drawback to watching anything on an Apple iPhone or Google Android device is that the screen is small and sound is flat. Patriot Memory has created the PBO Alpine Media Player, capable of playing just about every modern video format across HDMI onto an HDTV or monitor at 1080p using the familiar Android 2.2 interface. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the Patriot Memory PBO Alpine High Definition Media Player, and evaluates how well it performs compared to the competition."

Western Digital My Net N900 HD Dual-Band Router Review
     Tue, Jul 24 2012 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quick! What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Western Digital? If you're like most people, you immediately thought of hard drives and other storage products, which have been WD's bread and butter for several decades now. But the times, they are a changin', and in case you haven't noticed, Western Digital is no longer content to simply take residence in your PC. That became evident when Western Digital dove into the media player market with its WD TV line-up of set-top boxes, but why stop at owning the living room when you can lord over the entire manor? Unable to come up with a viable answer to that question, Western Digital decided to do just that by launching its very first line of wireless home networking products. Western Digital sent us its WD My Net N900 HD dual-band wireless router to take for a spin. It's one of a half dozen new networking products and the company's flagship model, sans internal storage (for those who need or want integrated storage, there's the My Net N900 Central with 1TB or 2TB hard drives baked in)...

Eight Intel H77 motherboards round-up: affordable Ivy Bridge systems
     Tue, Jul 24 2012 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently published a round-up of 32 motherboards with the Intel Z77 chipset. If you're not planning on overclocking and won't be using more than one graphics card, then there is a more affordable version available of the Ivy Bridge chipset called Intel H77. The chipset itself costs less, and motherboard manufacturers are also making less comprehensive boards. That means that you can buy a motherboard for your Ivy Bridge processor for around £70 already.

Be Quiet Dark Power Pro 10 550W review: high-end power supply
     Tue, Jul 24 2012 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 550-watt Dark Power Pro 10 is a modular power supply, and comes with very solid connectors. You get 7 molex and 9 SATA connectors in the box. For graphics cards you get four 6/8-pin PEG connectors and a 6-pin connector, so five in total. That's a lot for a 550W power supply, and all of the modular cables are individually sleeved. It has 80 Plus Gold certification, which means it’s a very efficient PSU.

Motherboard players may see single-digit growth in 3Q12
     Tue, Jul 24 2012 | 3:51P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Europe and the US markets are still suffering from economical turmoil and summer demand from China's PC DIY market has not fired up as expected so motherboard players are concerned that their sequential shipment growth in the third quarter may drop from the forecast 10-15% to a single-digit, with some players even having no growth."

SSD NEWS: MacBook Air (mid-2012) MBA Review Part 2 - Samsung and Toshiba (SandForce) SSDs Go Head To Head
     Tue, Jul 24 2012 | 9:37A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following up on our first MacBook Air review a few days back, we couldn`t resist getting a second MBA in our hands to pair off both the Samsung and Toshiba SSDs in a head to head battle of speed and performance. The Toshiba SSD is LSI SandForce controlled and should excel in typical user performance , whereas, we would expect to see the Samsung pulling ahead with respect to it`s transfer of incompressible data such as movies, music and photos. Early indications at Anandtech, however, seem to have shown listed specifications below norm for the typical `LSI SandForce Driven` solid state drive. Transfer speeds of 490MB/s and 340MB/s seemed to be lower than anything we had seen with the LSI SandForce SF-2281 6Gbps processor yet. As I had stated in our first report though, I am new to the world of Mac/OS X and storage testing just isn`t the same in the Mac realm so nothing would surprise me."

Origin EON 11-S Review: Successor To The Mobile Gaming Throne
     Tue, Jul 24 2012 | 9:15A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Games and portability have never mixed. I suspect I dont have to lecture our readers about that. The Origin EON11-S is small, so it makes compromises. It does not match the performance of the ASUS G75V. But it does game well, and it can handle just about anything at its native resolution and high settings. Games that were never the most demanding, or are more than a few years old, should be playable at maximum detail."

OCZ Fatal1ty 1000W Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews

The OCZ Fatal1ty 1000W is a well-balanced power supply of high quality, offering great performance and a unique appearance. Considering its target group, it may not be cheap but it is not excessively expensive either. We are certain that hardcore users will enjoy the Fatal1ty 1000W unit, particularly those who would like to have a unit with individually sleeved cables but do not have the skills or the time to perform such an extensive modification..."

Why Windows 8 Start Menu's Absence is Irrelevant
     Tue, Jul 24 2012 | 9:03A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although every product deserves healthy criticism, many opinions of Windows 8 seem to be based on misconceptions, especially when it comes to the viability of Metro as a Start menu replacement. For the record, I don't care if you skip the update -- hell, I might pass on it too -- nor do I care if it's the most failtastic operating system in Windows' 26-year history. However, I believe your opinion should be formed by facts, not irrational rhetoric parroted online by so-called power users and companies that want to sell you third-party programs. The truth is, functionally speaking, Metro is basically identical to the Start menu.

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.
