CM Storm Havoc is an 8200DPI
     Wed, Jul 31 2013 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CM Storm Havoc is an 8200DPI gaming mouse featuring 8 programmable buttons, RGB color options, 128KB of onboard memory, and Japanese Omron Micro Switches. It's priced at $54.99 to compete against the likes of the Razer Deathadder and TT eSports Level 10 M. One thing that really stuck on us throughout our time with the Havoc was the soft-touch finish, now hit our review to see if it doesn't lose its touch as an actual input device.

Corsair Obsidian 350D Micro ATX Computer Case Review
     Wed, Jul 31 2013 | 11:23A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Corsair introduced its Obsidian line in 2009 with the 800D it brought out a case that was beautiful, functional, and massive. In 2011 Corsair introduced the mid-tower Obsidian 650D it was still beautiful, functional, and just a bit too big for many enthusiasts. In 2013, Corsair introduced its first Micro-ATX case the 350D.

XFX Pro Series 850W Black Edition PSU Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Jul 31 2013 | 10:08A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall, the XFX Pro Series 850W Black Edition is not the best performing 850W power supply that we have ever tested, nor the most innovative, or the lowest priced; however, it is outstandingly balanced in every aspect. The overall performance is undeniably excellent, with the PSU easily conforming to the 80Plus Gold certification standards, running silent and maintaining low temperatures, as well as displaying admirable electrical performance. When it comes to quality, the fact that Seasonic is the OEM behind its manufacturing alone should be enough to satisfy even the most demanding of users. The choice of components is excellent, as is the quality of the assembly. XFX covers this unit with a 5 year warranty (parts + labor), which should be enough to quell any concerns..."

Posted by: STAFF
"A hands-on preview of the latest operating system coming to Macs: OS X Mavericks. The next version of OS X adds power, flexibility, and features to the existing version, OS X Mountain Lion, but if you upgrade from the most current version, you won't notice much of a difference at first glance."

     Wed, Jul 31 2013 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink

The Shuttle SH87R6 is a great foundation for a small yet powerful system using the latest in hardware. You can combine a Core i7-4770(K), a couple of SSDs and even a mid-range dual-slot graphics card, for example. It's perfect for bringing along to LAN parties, or you can make yourself a powerful yet tiny, portable PC.

Posted by: STAFF
At this point nearly every notebook and ultrabook ships with an mSATA slot. Some products ship with the slot populated and others hide the connector under the keyboard. Upcoming products based on Haswell CPUs will bring more SATA III mSATA ports to notebooks. It`s time to find products to populate them."

Oblanc UFO True 5.1 USB Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Jul 31 2013 | 8:27A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Oblanc UFO True 5.1 Gaming headset will give the user high quality sound even if your PC does not have surround sound. We liked the build, quality, and sound production which allow you to pinpoint where the action is while playing a FPS. While playing one of our favorite games, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, the 5.1 surround sound gave a more realistic audio perception and sound quality which allowed us to get the jump on a lot of players as they tried to sneak up behind me..."

Seagate Business Storage 2-bay 6TB review
     Tue, Jul 30 2013 | 5:44P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You get USB 3.0 in the front and back, a solid build quality, good trays for the disks and even a slot for a USM hard disk. It's really a distinguishing factor, and if you need a business-oriented NAS that will only be used for back-ups, then the Seagate Business Storage 2-bay is an interesting option. USM disks can be used in the same manner as tapes, and thanks to the SATA port it's fast. It's also very user-friendly, and using this NAS for making back-ups doesn't require a degree in IT.
