TRENDnet TPL-402E2K 500Mbps Powerline
     Mon, Aug 06 2012 | 9:00A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes when you don't use a specific product in your daily life you can fail to see its importance and in a way up until recently i did exactly that in regard to Powerline network adapters since i wasn't aware of just how many people out there actually use them to fill the gap between normal wired and wireless connections. That's also the reason as to why for the past couple of months I’ve been trying to test as many Powerline adapter sets as i can get my hands on so everyone who uses such devices can know exactly what each of those solutions has to offer. So following the quite good PL-550D 500Mbit/s Powerline adapter set by RaidSonic we had the chance to test roughly 2 weeks ago today we will be testing the latest TPL-402E2K 500Mbps Powerline AV Adapter Kit by TRENDnet.

Western Digital 1TB WD RE4 Enterprise Hard Drive Review
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 4:49P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Western Digital started segmenting their storage products into tiers; external storage drives are arguably on the very lowest rung, followed by WD Green, Blue and Black Caviar desktop hard drives. Shortly thereafter, WD introduced 'RE4' drives for Enterprise Storage applications.

In this review PCSTATS is testing out a 3.5" Western Digital RE4 WD1003FBYX hard drive. The WD RE4 WD1003FBYX is a 1.0TB hard drive which utilizes Perpendicular Magnetic Recording and operates on the 3Gb/s SATA II interface. It features StableTrac, IntelliSeek, NoTouch ramp loading head technology, a multi-axis shock sensor, RAFF technology and RAID specific Time Limited Error Recovery. The drive supports a typical sustained data transfer rate of 128MB/s and has two platters/four heads beneath its shiny metal exterior.

Google Nexus 7 Tablet Review - XSReviews
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 3:57P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Google Nexus 7 is a fulfillment of a promise made last year by Nvidia, that they would soon offer a $200 tablet with the power of their latest quad-core mobile architecture. In practical terms, that means an Android tablet with the raw processing power of flagship tablets but costing a third of the price. The tablet, with Asus hardware and the latest Google Android software, offers one of the most compelling cases for tablet ownership yet at a 159 price point that UK customers have never experienced. As a friend of mine mentioned at the time, At that price, you can`t afford not to get one. Have Google crafted a masterpiece, or were too many corners cut to hit that remarkable price point? Let`s find out. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

John’s VR glasses experiments
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The final topic was that of John’s VR glasses experiments that he has been doing, as well as the work he is doing with the company Oculus. This is obviously a passion for John, as he talked a lot about it. He detailed out the issues with current head mounted displays, what he has done to mitigate them, and the final cludged together product that he was able to produce essentially on his own. He was quite excited to get in touch with the people at Oculus, as they have a nearly shipping product that takes HMD VR to the next level. Topics involved per eye resolution, optics, latency, absolute head position, and software support. This took up the major portion of his talk. It is an area that he obviously is very excited about and hopes to expand upon soon."

John Carmack's annual keynote address
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"id Software co-founder John Carmack's annual keynote address started off on a somber note as he apologized for several issues gamers experienced with graphics driver issues when they released their triple AAA title "Rage" for the PC in October last year. Carmack discussed Rage's disappointing PC debut and stated it was "poorly handled" in its lack of driver support. After discussing id Software's Doom 3 RPG Edition for iOS they are demo'ing at Quakecon, Carmack emphasized that the company needs to focus its efforts on Doom 4 development, which means they will be repurposing their mobile development team to work on Doom 4 until it's completed."

     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 12:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink

The DSP is supposed to ensure extremely high efficiency and very low ripple values.

Posted by: STAFF
With the continued evolution of the Android operating system, manufacturers are left with the ability to take a proven and versatile OS and put it on their own hardware. Furthermore, Android brings with it an incredible ecosystem of applications, accessories and interoperability with other device types. We`re used to seeing Android on our phones and tablets, but now it`s coming to our living room. Pivos is one of the latest manufacturers to release an Android powered media box and I have one here today to check out."

CM Storm Sonuz Gaming Headset Review
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 10:38A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The earpads themselves are absolutely huge and unless you have Dumbo-size ears they will fit comfortably over your ears without any issues. The pads are made of the same soft foam as the top bridge padding and are quite comfortable even with the higher pressure on them from the rigid frame. The backside of the earcups has a slice through it filled with metal mesh, which won`t win any awards at keeping outsides sounds out (or vice versa). I didn`t notice a great deal of noise leaking out of the headphones compared to some but if you crank the volume everyone will know what you`re listening to."

Corsair Force GS 240GB SSD review
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 9:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Corsair Force GS 240GB SSD. Corsair introduces the Force GS series, and that are equipped with the 2281 series SandForce controller. Paired with SanDisk Toggle Toggle NAND flash ICs that will increase read and write performance to 555MB/s and 525 MB/s respectively which makes the Force GS the fastest SSDs they have ever brought to market. With 4K random write performance estimated at 90,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second) the product is definitely in the right performance bracket we like to see Corsair in. But have a peek at the review"

ASRock Vision 3D 252B HTPC Review
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 9:03A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we first took a look at the ASRock Vision 3D 137B with NVIDIA 3DTV Play last year, we were quite impressed with the machine. It offered excellent all-around performance for a system in its class and had an extensive feature set that included Blu-Ray and 3D video playback capabilities, all wrapped up in what we considered to be an attractive enclosure. So, when ASRock came to us with an updated model outfitted with a newer CPU, GPU, and other components, we were eager to check it out. Once it arrived we were pleased to see ASRock hadn’t messed around with the system’s aesthetics and after prepping it with an OS and various other apps, the system took residence in our home theater setup for some real-world testing. Since its arrival, the ASRock Vision 3D 252B HTPC we’ll be showing you here today has been our primary playback device for Blu-Ray discs—including 3D titles—, DVDs, a host of videos and movies stored on a multi-terabyte NAS array, and for streaming content from the web...

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
