Lenovo ThinkPad 8 Tablet Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, May 20 2014 | 10:18A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 8-inch tablet market is literally overflowing with choices. What makes 8-inch or similar tablets great is that they are small enough that you really do not feel like you are carrying around say a laptop or Ultrabook. While Lenovo does offer 8-inch tablets, this is a ThinkPad tablet, which means it is targeted at business users. Being a business user on the go you want something powerful enough and that can do everything that your PC or laptop can do. I would much rather carry around an 8-inch tablet than an Ultrabook. Running a full version of Windows 8.1 and with its 1920 x 1200 display the ThinkPad 8 might give you a reason to ditch your PC. Read on as we take a look..."

Amped Wireless REC15A 802.11ac Wi-Fi Range Extender Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, May 20 2014 | 8:14A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With so many Wireless devices in populating the home these days there is a growing need to guarantee Wi-Fi coverage.  For those that have invested in Wi-Fi-AC routers for their wireless computers, games, and multimedia devices, the last thing they want is to run out of useful signal.  For 802.11ac devices this is especially problematic.  Even though the 5GHz AC-band gives users the fast data throughput, it also has a range that is much more limited when compared to the 2.4GHz band. What Amped Wireless attempts to deliver with the REC15A is a way that users can extend the range of their router to all areas of the house and grounds. This is done by repeating and amplifying the 5GHz 802.11ac signal..."

GIGABYTE Z97X-Gaming G1 WIFI-BK Review @ Vortez

The Z97X-Gaming G1-WIFI-BK Black Edition is a premium motherboard designed primarily for gamers. One such feature which diversifies this offering is the integration of the PLX 8747 chip which paves the way for greater bandwidth over the four PCI express slots which accommodate 4-way SLI/CrossfireX."

ASUS has decided to equip their Hero motherboard with the new Z97 Express chipset from Intel. Other than that ASUS also decided to reposition the Maximus VII Hero on the market and today the Hero doesn`t mark the entry into ASUS` ROG class.

More power is needed for our mobile devices and today I have another portable battery pack for review from our friends over at Lumsing.

Red Faction: Guerrilla 5 Years-Later Review
     Mon, May 19 2014 | 1:06P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is *Red Faction: Guerrilla* a game worth playing five years after release? In my opinion it is. It definitely has its issues, but nothing too horrible, and what it allows and empowers you to do is still a lot of fun. Want to drive a truck through a building? Go ahead. Topple a building with just a sledgehammer? Get swinging. Be driven around as you launch rockets at anything and everything? Warm up your fingers. *Red Faction: Guerrilla*is one of the best sandbox games I know of, with all it allows you to do. It is not perfect, as missions can have limited avenues to victory, but the destructible nature of just about everything is a feature that makes it unique. If you are looking for such an experience, definitely play this game do some damage."

Tego Audio Cera Bluetooth Speaker Review @ TestFreaks
     Mon, May 19 2014 | 8:14A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I have the Cera wireless Bluetooth speaker from Tego Audio. This little speaker is orb shaped and it has what Tego calls an expanding sound chamber that provides omnidirectional sound so it doesnt matter where you put it the sound is the same. The Cera features multimedia touch controls right on the top which light up blue when powered on. The Cera surprised me by just how good it sounded, especially since it only has one speaker inside of it, the sound is clear and loud. Read on to learn more"
