LG 84LM960V / LG 84LM9600 UHD TV review
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:03A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We tested the LG 84LM960V / LG 84LM9600 UHD TV, which is the first UHD television that we’ve reviewed. The detail and depth is amazing on this screen, provided you watch UHD material that’s still quite difficult to find. Full HD material is barely upscaled, however. The price tag is pretty daunting, even if this is actually the most affordable 84-inch UHD TV on the market. In the UK it costs £22,499, on mainland Europe its costs around 15,000 euro, and in the US $19,999.

G-Technology G-DRIVE 4TB Professional High Performance External HDD Review
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I think we can all agree to the fact that storage capacity needs increase every day especially as long as people get faster internet connections allowing them to download huge chunks of data from the Internet in surprisingly small periods of time. Luckily all the leading HDD manufacturers have released several 4TB hard disk drive models during the last year including mainstream models targeted towards casual users and gamers, high end models aimed at enthusiasts and of course enterprise class models for professionals. Unfortunately although we have that variety in standalone internal hard disk drives the same doesnt apply in external hard disk drives since for that purpose most manufacturers choose to use their mainstream models to keep the cost down. G-Technology by HGST (Former Hitachi GST) is amongst the very few companies that not only uses the high end and enterprise class models HGST has to offer but they also use some of the highest quality and performance external HDD enclosures we`ve seen to date and the latest USB 3.0 compatible version of the G-DRIVE is no exception."

Why Michael Dell Made His Bold Move
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:00A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell's decision to go private (and Microsoft's $2B investment) are big news in the tech world today, but there's precious little in the way of hard evidence for why Michael Dell decided to buy back the company he founded as a college student back in 1984. The Microsoft angle has gotten a lot of press, but it's not the primary driver of the deal. Michael Dell clearly has some ideas about how he wants to refocus the company; Dell signed off on $5B in acquisitions in the past 12 months, and $13B in the past few years. All the major acquisitions have been enterprise companies; he's clearly preparing the company to take on HP and IBM in lucrative segments of their own markets. While it may not have the same requirements to shareholders now, Dell still needs to explain how it plans to reinvigorate its brands, leverage its new partnership with Microsoft, and invest in businesses...

ASUS VivoBook X202E 11.6-inch Notebook Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 1:45A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It might not be an Ultrabook, but for what ASUS VivoBook X202E offers, that might not matter. Instead of focusing on performance, ASUS has concentrated on the feature-set, overall design and the aesthetics. Then it piled on a touchscreen for good measure. Sounds good for a $500 notebook, so its time to see if it impresses."

Silicon Power Armor A15 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Tue, Feb 05 2013 | 1:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
No matter how much advancement in technology we see through the years one thing continues to stay unaltered and that`s the continuously growing storage demands/needs for most enthusiasts and professionals. Personally for backup purposes only i use quite a few Terabytes and i know many others who use even more so i really hope that the 5TB HDD models will get released sooner rather than later (Q1 2013 is the projected date after all). Now as you all know lately we`ve been focusing most of our efforts into testing all the latest storage related devices to hit the market from internal devices such as SSDs and HDDs up to portable devices including USB flash drives and 3.5/2.5 external HDDs. Still the market is huge, new models get released almost on a daily basis and so today in our hands we have yet another such device the Armor A15 1TB USB 3.0 2.5 portable hard drive from Silicon Power."

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.
