News: On the marginalization of consumer laptops
     Thu, Jan 24 2013 | 1:17A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week, Gartner reported that PC shipments shrank by almost 5% last quarter. The firm pinned the blame on users relinquishing their PCs for daily use. As enthusiasts, we may find it hard to imagine folks ditching their computers for comparatively limited tablets. However, I have some pretty convincing anecdotal evidence that lends weight to Gartner`s thesis."

[DreamWare Computers] Cougar GX-S 80PLUS Gold Power Supply
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 4:39P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
My first real introduction to Cougar was with the review of their PowerX power supply a little over a month ago. The PowerX was a great 80PLUS Bronze power supply that offered good performance and quiet operation for those not wanting to break the bank on the price tag. Anxious to see what Cougar had to offer in the higher end market, today I have their GX-S power supply on the bench. The GX-S series offers a trio of 80PLUS Gold certified models for those who don`t necessarily need the extremely high wattages offered by Cougar`s other 80PLUS Gold series, the GX series."

Ozone Rage ST Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 3:31P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dedicated to evolution and delivering products at a reasonable price, Ozone release the Rage ST into the war zone. Interestingly, in the name of variety and choice, the Rage ST is their first headset that allows the buyer to shy away from the angsty red on black chic (that isn`t a limited edition), that is adorned so brazen by Ozone`s product line up and gives customers the choice of five colours. Black, White, Red, Yellow and Blue."

[REVIEW] Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 10:30A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the movement to second or even third systems in the home (primarily den and living room) for the purpose of entertainment and some retro gaming ? SFF (Small Form Factor) has gained a bit of ground. Thin cases of less than 4 inches and mini/thin mini ITX (the thin mini ITX generally uses SODIMM) make great rack mount components to go along side your Receiver, DVD/Blu-Ray player and CD Changer. Having the lowest profile memory in these systems allows unhampered airflow and more space for wiring."

ZOTAC ZBOX ID83 Plus MiniPC Review
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 9:02A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CES 2013 brought upon us another year of great product launches yet to come but there is one product you won’t have to wait long for and that is the ZOTAC ZBOX ID83. ZOTAC has been churning out these Small Form Factor PCs for quite some time and while most of the units we took a look at last year were based upon AMD architecture things are about to change."

Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256GB
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It appears that the Xtreme firmware update for the Plextor M5 Pro is little more than a marketing ploy. While Plextor does indeed get in the vicinity of 100.000 4k read Iops, the SSD is not much faster in any of the other benchmarks. In some tests it's even slower with the new firmware than before.

Lenovo Yoga 13 review: limber laptop
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
2013 could very well become the year of the hybrids. The boundaries between tablets and laptops are growing increasingly blurry. Both devices have their own distinct advantages, but there seems to be an innate human tendency to want to combine things. So the laptop that also turns into a tablet, or the tablet that also turns into a laptop by means of a keyboard dock, only seem to be an inevitable next step. The natural evolution of mobile computers in a way. Today we are reviewing a laptop that can also serve as a tablet, the very flexible Lenovo Yoga 13.

Silverstone Sugo Series SG09 Small Form Factor Tower Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 5:12A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The tenth case is the unit that we will be reviewing here today, which is the SG09. The SG09 takes a different approach than the very popular SG05, SG07 and SG08 as it is longer than square like the others. And when it comes to their SG03 and SG04, which are taller towers and have aluminum front panels the SG09 is made of plastic. But we are not going to let any of this get in the way of reviewing this sweet looking case."

Posted by: STAFF

The Coolermaster Gemin II M4 heatsink measures just 61mm tall, from the base of its exposed copper heatpipes to the tippy tip of its translucent vaneaxial fan. How does manage to squeeze in a fan and enough cooling surface area in a package so thin?

OCZ Vector 256GB SSD Review @ Techgage

Posted by: STAFF
* Vector is OCZs first SSD release since the ushering in of a new CEO and fresh perspective on its direction. Its also the first SSD to come equipped with both in-house firmware and controller. In effect, OCZ has built its Vector SSD from the ground up with its rich internal resources has it paid off?"

Intel DC S3700 800GB server SSD review: reliable and consistent
     Tue, Jan 22 2013 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest high-end consumer SSDs may be faster in most benchmarks, but when we tested the SSDs over a 15-minute period the Intel DC S3700 stands out with head and shoulders. Even after two hours the performance had not gone down. And since the steady state performance of Intel's new SSD is higher than that of the other SATA600 SSDs we've tested, it is perfectly suited for servers that will have constant loads for long periods of time, such as databases.

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.
