Review of the 15-inch Samsung Series 9
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung Series 9 NP900X4D costs around £1,100 and is a phenomenal laptop. It features a 15-inch display but somehow only weighs 1.58 kg, all in a good-looking magnesium chassis. You get a large battery that lasts a long time and you can expand the amount of RAM if you want. Windows 8 works great on it, thanks to the large touchpad that functions the same way a touchscreen does.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Review
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been a long time coming. Developed by the fine folks at Firaxis, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a reimagining of the classic strategy game, but without the genre-bending tactics of other ill-fated titles. Will veterans of the original rejoice? Does it remain fresh for a new audience? Have I really been mind controlled? Read on to find out!

Checking out the Microsoft pop-up Store and Surface Tablet @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 8:25A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of days ago we stopped by one of the latest Microsoftpop-up stores. Microsoft has launched 32 of these pop-up stores around the US and Canada and lucky enough there is one in Pittsburgh at Ross Park Mall. The reason Microsoft is calling these pop-up stores is because they are temporary installments for the holiday season that are intended to give shoppers more options for buying Microsoft and other PC-related products. We had the chance to talk to the manager of the store and get a demo of Microsofts Surface tablet. Read on for our video coverage."

Ineo Alienvibes EP02 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Oct 28 2012 | 10:45P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ineo has released a new line of audio devices. The first product is their Alienvibes EP02 noise cancelling headphones. The Ineo Alienvibes EP02 headphones are an over the ear type of headphone featuring active noise cancelling. They use 40mm drivers to provide a smaller size while providing clear sound. Ineo designed the EP02 headphones to be comfortable for long periods of time by using plush breathable ear cushions, which also assist with the noise cancelling, offering 13 to 18dB of isolation. To provide a clean, crisp sound, the frequency response is from 20Hz to 20KHz with a 110dB sensitivity rating. The Alienvibes EP02 are ideal for use with an MP3 player, Smartphone, or tablet, thanks to the included inline microphone and being self-powered by two AAA batteries.///"

ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 Review
     Sun, Oct 28 2012 | 10:24P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it came time to overclock with ASRock`s E77 Extreme 4, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it could pull off the same overclocks as some if the high end boards I have used. It easily delivered a nice 1.2GHz overclock on my Core i7 3770K without any real voltage challenges, with the use of ASRock`s Digi Power VRM design and 8+4phase power circuit. Overclocking via AXTU was uneventful in that the utility worked to allow overclocking from within the operating system. Where I had some concerns was with the inability to run my test system memory at its native 2133MHz or even as low as 2000MHz. Voltages, timings, and the latest BIOS did not alleviate the problem. I understand memory incompatibilities and see them from time to time, but with plenty of modules with similar specifications and memory ICs on the QVL list, it is still a surprise. Other than that small hiccup, the board delivered performance to go with its good looks."

TRENDnet TV-IP672WI Megapixel Wireless Day/Night PTZ IP Camera Review
     Sun, Oct 28 2012 | 5:59P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Where i live most people leave their houses to go on vacations between the months of July-August/November-December and so it comes as very little surprise that the amount of burglaries gets to increase many times over during those 4 months of the year (remember home alone?). However even though this is a known fact to everyone only a handful of people i know have installed IP camera systems and motion sensors inside their houses while even less have complete security systems connected directly with the local police department and/or private security agencies. What really surprised me however after asking a few of them is that most of them (if not all) are not even aware that they can build a surveillance system on their own without much fuzz and certainly without spending much in the process. So since Christmas holidays are just around the corner today we will be testing yet another brand new IP Camera model, this time however an indoor one by TRENDnet the TV-IP672WI."

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.
