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...

Lepa G-Series 1600W review: very powerful PSU
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The chance that you really need a 1600W power supply for your PC is slim. You really need to try hard to build a PC that can use that much power, at least three or four high-end graphics cards with preferably two processors and all of them overclocked to even get close to 1600W. If you do need that much power, then the Lepa G1600 is a good PSU, if a little noisy.

Thecus N5550 review: fast NAS with HDMI
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 9:00A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Calling the Thecus N5550 a NAS is almost selling it short, because it's much more than that. It's a network server for at home or in the office, and you can use it to download files, as a digital photo album, and for connecting IP cameras. You can connect it to a computer obviously, but also tablets and smartphones let you access it via apps.

Gigabyte HD 7970 Super OC 3 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Aug 04 2012 | 3:57P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte`s HD 7970 SOC introduces a new cooling concept. Instead of placing the fan(s) on the large surface of the heatsink like on all recent graphics cards, the company chose to position five small fans along the top edge of the card. Our review will investigate whether the card will be too noisy and too big, or if it can truly provide some benefit."

Sony VAIO Z (2012) SVZ1311C5E: 1.15 kg with quad-core
     Sat, Aug 04 2012 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sony VAIO Z is a very impressive laptop with interesting possibilities. It has the weight and the dimensions of an Ultrabook, but with the hardware of a full-size laptop. No ultra-low voltage processor, but a normal mobile processor with the option even of a quad-core model. Despite the powerful hardware inside, the VAIO Z still lasts about 5.5 hours.

Sony Slips Further Into The Red
     Sat, Aug 04 2012 | 12:01P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sony is halfway through an ugly restructuring period as it seeks to cut costs, consolidate markets, and turn its once-mighty television business around. That's a difficult proposition for any company, but the Japanese giant's recent earnings call was gloomy even under these circumstances. Modest upticks in Imaging Products and Services and Pictures were offset by heavy declines in gaming, home entertainment, and music. The company reported a $314M loss for its first quarter of fiscal year 2012 and cut forecasts for a number of markets. Sony pinned part of the blame on continuing economic turbulence in Europe and America, but investors weren't willing to accept this as the sole explanation. What the company refuses to do is admit that the Vita is dead on arrival.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 SLI review: ridiculously powerful
     Sat, Aug 04 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Two GeForce GTX 690s with their four Nvidia GK104 GPUs in one system, does it make any sense? Yes, it’s the ultimate combination for gamers. For the first time ever we were able to run Crysis 2 smoothly on three monitors with the highest possible settings.

OCZ Technology Vertex 4 256GB Solid State Drive Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Sat, Aug 04 2012 | 11:50A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ Technology Vertex 4 256GB solid state drive is an impressive unit, and a nice upgrade over the previous generation of Vertex drives. During testing it was particularly strong in most of the read tests where the only close competition was an Intel 520 series drive. However, when it came to write speeds none of the reference drives were even close."

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.
