Diamond Multimedia WR300NR
     Mon, Jul 15 2013 | 9:03A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When you look at the vast majority of routers on the market today, they’re typically about the size of a hardcover book. Some of them might have more bells and whistles than the others, but they serve the same fundamental purpose. What’s interesting about the Diamond Multimedia WR300NR is not only how compact it is, but also how it’s more than a simple wireless router. Indeed, it’s a multifunctional device that can serve four different functions."

Bluetooth SoundBar Speaker System Review
     Mon, Jul 15 2013 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let us just start off by saying that the Samsung HW-550 Bluetooth SoundBar speaker system is more than we, and for that matter most consumers, would ever need for their entertainment center. For such a compact 2.1 channel SoundBar system, which weighs less than 20lbs, the HW-F550 surely impresses most individuals by the intensity of SoundBar (and bass) which it creates seemingly unnoticed to the average eyes – not to mention the plethora of features and accessories included with the SoundBar that specifically complements those Samsung Smart TV and 3D capable units.

Sony Xperia Z Ultra 6.4 inch
     Mon, Jul 15 2013 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday Sony provided Hardware.Info with a hands-on session with its latest high-end smartphone, the Xperia Z Ultra. It's literally the bigger sibling of the current flagship Sony phone, the Xperia Z. The new Ultra is equipped with an extremely fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor running at 2.2 GHz, but the most eye-catching feature is the size of the new phone. The Xperia Z Ultra has a 6.4-inch Full HD display, which puts it in that grey area between smartphone and tablet. We had the opportunity to play around with the new phone for about half an hour. It will be available in the third quarter of this year, for a recommended price of 719 euros.

MSI GTX 780 Gaming @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Jul 15 2013 | 8:30A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our first introduction to the new 700 series of cards from Nvidia was impressive and I can say without a doubt that I have enjoyed our time with it through the review and beyond. I was especially impressed with the stock cooler aesthetically, but the performance wasnt too bad as well. Of course that can be improved on and I finally have a chance to see that now with our latest card to come in, MSIs GTX 780 Gaming or the N780 Twin Frozr 3GB Overclocked. Every time I have had a Twin Frozr card on the test bench I have been impressed, I wonder if this will be the same. Of course I am going to put it through our test suite to find out."

[Tech ARP] The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Tech Report
     Mon, Jul 15 2013 | 8:21A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been more than a year since Kepler was launched. In an industry where 6 month product cycles used to be the norm, NVIDIA took almost a year to refresh Kepler. They did so on the 19th of February 2013 when they released the NVIDIA GeForce TITAN. Today, exactly fourteen months after the *GeForce GTX 680`s launch *, NVIDIA follows up with the new GeForce GTX 780, which slots in right under the GeForce TITAN. Let`s take a look."

Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jul 14 2013 | 3:59P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So up until now we have taken a look at the stock GTX 760 with its single fan, the EVGA GTX 760 with its dual fans, that really only leaves one logical option right? Today Im going to take a look at the GTX 760 from Gigabyte with their Windforce cooler that packs in a whopping 3 fans. The card is also overclocked a little more than the previous card as well. Im expecting good performance and Im very curious about how well Gigabytes Windforce cooling will do because this is our first chance to check out a card with it."

Tech21 Impact Snap Case with Cover (Galaxy S3) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sun, Jul 14 2013 | 11:33A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With some manufacturers we are lucky enough to get a screen protector bundled to enhance the protection offered by scratch resistant glass but its really the bare minimum in terms of device protection. Thats where companies like Tech21 are useful with their range of cases for some of the most popular smartphones. Today we have their Samsung Galaxy S3 Impact Case with cover to look at."

ASUS Z87-Plus Review
     Sun, Jul 14 2013 | 11:23A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking with the ASUS Z87-Plus board wasn`t too difficult at all. Having a new chip with no known max OC was rather quick to find its limits with the board. As always, I try for my high hopes and attempted a 4.8GHz boot. That didn`t happen; 4.7GHz however, at least posted and made it to Windows before shortly failing through a run of IBT. Wiggling some settings and setting the voltage up to 1.3V finally got me to a very sound and stable maximum overclock of 4.6GHz. Any bit more and I would quickly find it throttling under the stress of higher temperatures. Sure it is lower than the the other max OCs on the chart, but you must remember that this is a different sample than the others it is compared to; thus, the maximum OC it may ever get on any board, stable, may be this same 4.6GHz. This won`t be known until the next board comes along, so don`t feel the ASUS Z87-Plus isn`t good enough just yet."

Socket 2011 Charts: 15 Socket 2011 Boards - ASUS P9X79-E WS @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Jul 14 2013 | 9:17A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So far we`ve tested 16 Socket 2011 motherboards and we have to say that sometimes we got quite interesting results. What we`ve also done is, we have added power consumption values as well as a performance rating which allows quick comparision of which board performs best and which is the most energy efficient."

MSI GTX 780 Twin Frozr Gaming Review
     Sun, Jul 14 2013 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently covered the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 launch and a week later followed this up with an in-depth overclocking guide. The GTX 780 launched last month and in many ways is a cut down GeForce Titan at a much healthier price tag (if you can call £550 healthy). There really is nothing else out there right now which can match the performance of a GTX 780, it’s numero uno at present and it doesn’t look set to change any time soon. Today we are following up our GTX 780 coverage by looking at our first non-reference card from MSI, the GTX 780 Twin Frozr Gaming.

MSI GTX 770 TwinFrozr Gaming 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sun, Jul 14 2013 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI`s new GeForce GTX 770 Gaming is optimized for the demands of gamers. It comes overclocked out of the box, but what`s more important is that it runs extremely quiet in both idle and load. With no premium over the reference design it is also one of the most affordable GTX 770s out there."

Posted by: STAFF
1.html,In this review we test the GeForce GTX 780 Gaming edition from MSI. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and extraordinary silent. The graphics card comes with a nice factory overclock and the very lovely TwinFrozr IV cooler that has two silent 90mm fans. We test the product with the hottest games like Grid 2, Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more."

[Tech ARP] Hard Disk Drive Myths Debunked! Rev. 5.1
     Sun, Jul 14 2013 | 8:21A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This guide was written in response to the numerous fallacies about the hard disk drive that are still being propagated in many forum discussions. As you read through this guide, you may think that some of these myths may have been made up. We wished that was true. We collected these myths from various discussions we heard or read over time. So, let`s get down to basics and examine some of these common fallacies or myths and debunk them! *Here are the changes in this update : * *- Rearranged the guide to make it shorter and more readable. - Added Myth #56 on hard disk drives having an internal vacuum or low-pressure atmosphere. - Added Myth #57 on the retrieving of overwritten data by nefarious government agencies. - Updated Myth #52 on rescuing data from a dead hard disk drive by moving its platters to an identical donor hard disk drive.* *We now have 57 HDD myths in this article!*"

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.
