Dune HD Smart H1 Media Player Review @MissingRemote
     Sun, Jul 01 2012 | 1:47A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Connected media streamers, like the pair from Roku and NETGEAR that we reviewed recently, focus on providing access to IP content but generally cannot handle local media well enough (if at all) to be a viable unifying solution. Until we have enough bandwidth, and services able to deliver quality audio/video services over the Internet, those devices act as a supplement to players like the Dune HD Smart H1 that we will look at today. Locally cached content includes a diverse set of file types and formats, so H1?s support for disc-less Blu-ray, M2TS, MKV, and all of the codecs commonly found within is an essential starting point. *"

Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 2GB DDR5 Flex Edition Video Card Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Jun 30 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 2GB DDR5 Flex Edition continues the Flex lineup of video cards. As with all Flex Cards, the 7870 Flex Edition features Sapphire's Flex technology and their improved cooling solution. The Flex technology enables Eyefinity with the use of the HDMI port, rather than the Display Port. The improved cooling uses Sapphire's proven Dual-X cooling solution. The core of this 7870 remains the same as all GHz editions. The engine clock is set at 1000MHz while the memory clock is at 1200MHz. There is 2GB of onboard 256-bit DDR5 memory. The 7870 uses the newest 28nm GCN architecture and features 20 Compute Units. This translates to 1280 Stream Processors, 80 Texture Units, 128 Z/Stencil ROP Units, 32 Color ROP Units, Dual Geometry Engines, and Dual Asynchronous Compute Engines. The interface is the newest PCI Express 3.0 and is DX 11.1 capable. All AMD features are in tact such as AMD App Acceleration, AMD HD3D technology, AMD CrossFire technology, AMD PowerPlay, AMD PowerTune, and AMD ZeroCore Power technology. "

Asus Transformer Pad TF300 Review
     Sat, Jun 30 2012 | 12:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asus' Eee Pad Transformer launched with much fanfare last year as it bridged the gap between tablets and netbooks via its keyboard docking station. At the time, we thought the Eee Pad Transformer was a great bargain, but that value was slightly diminished later in 2011 when Asus unveiled its $620 Eee Pad Transformer Prime. Although the Transformer Prime's price increase was technically justifiable, it pushed the upper budgets of some shoppers. Addressing that issue, Asus has released a more affordable yet still powerful version called the Transformer Pad TF300T, equipped with the same Tegra 3 SoC and priced at $550 with a docking station.

PNY XLR8 GeForce GTX 670 Video Card
     Sat, Jun 30 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most gamers simply want to play upcoming releases without worrying over hardware requirements or system compatibility, and the GeForce GTX 670 video card is the most recent graphics product that deliver it all in one package. For around $399 the GeForce GTX 670 matches price to the AMD Radeon HD 7950, yet performs to the level of Radeon HD 7970. The PNY XLR8 GeForce GTX 670 keeps to NVIDIA's ultra-efficient design and delivers top-end potential while keeping some space reserved for overclocking. Offered as a bonus to their customers PNY also includes a thin-profile 72" long HDMI cable, and a free 3-month membership to the E-Sports Entertainment gaming community. With DirectX-11 games such as Battlefield 3 and Max Payne 3 demanding more from computer hardware, Benchmark Reviews tests how well the PNY XLR8 GeForce GTX 670 video card (VCGGTX670XPB) delivers the required graphical performance.

Corsair Graphite Series 600T Mid-Tower Case Long-Term Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Sat, Jun 30 2012 | 11:05A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Among choosing components when building a computer system, one must choose what type of chassis they will be using. Some may believe they can cheap out when purchasing a PC case, but the type and quality of PC case you choose makes a lot of difference in your actual building experience, future expandability, and also overall system performance when you factor in things such as airflow, temperatures and noise. Choosing a PC case also allows you to pick your own personal style, I mean who wants to use old boring beige computer cases? I was given the opportunity to review and fully test one of Corsair`s latest entries into the mid-tower case lineup, dubbed the Graphite Series, I will be sharing with you about the 600T and what it means to this segment. Given what people know about Corsair and their premium brand label, coupled with their innovation, style and performance oriented nature, I was eager to see what the Corsair 600T would be all about."

AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB GHz Edition Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Jun 30 2012 | 9:21A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not willing to be outdone by NVIDIA, AMD is upping the ante with their new HD 7970 GHz Edition, a graphics card that`s supposed to regain the performance crown and ultimately beat the GTX 680 clean. That`s a tall order to accomplish but with a 1GHz clock speed, a Boost feature and 6GHz memory modules, this new product may just have what it takes. * *"

SSD NEWS: MyDigitalSSD BulletProof 3 mSATA 256GB SSD Review
     Sat, Jun 30 2012 | 9:10A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few days ago we looked at the MyDigitalSSD SMART SSD which gave us a peak of what has become an ever growing mSATA SSD market. That SSD, based on the ADATA XPG SX300 architecture, is the fastest and highest capacity mSATA SSD available to date. The MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 3 256GB SSD is the little brother of the SMART and, although it is not `SandForce Driven` and is a bit lower in performance, it`s capacity and price point make it a definite contender in the mSATA market."

Gigabyte GTX 670 WindForce OC Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Jun 30 2012 | 9:10A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte`s GTX 670 WindForce OC is one of the few graphics cards that does things a bit differently. In a market that`s loaded with plain reference versions and overpriced custom cards that don`t provide much in the way of additional performance, this particular GTX 670 provides near-GTX 680 performance alongside a price that puts many competitors to shame.

Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H AMD A75 Socket FM1 Motherboard Review

Posted by: STAFF
"Top of the list of features for the Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H motherboard is onboard graphics. Setting aside IGP clock speeds because these are dependent on the FM1 CPU, the GA-A75M-UD2H motherboard offers users DVI-D, DisplayPort, HDMI and Analog VGA video output. Resolutions of up to 2560x1600 are supported with all but the HDMI port (1920x1200). When it comes to packing in value, AMD always manages score one over Intel. The AMD A75 Fusion Controller Hub (FCH) features six native SATA III ports and four native USB 3.0 ports, whereas Intel has only just recently brought USB 3.0 into the fold. "

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.
