SteelSeries Siberia Elite Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Feb 02 2014 | 5:50A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SteelSeries is perhaps a brand that needs little introduction. In-fact, it?s very likely you?ve heard of their name and products through some of your favorite eSports teams SteelSeries sponsors, from other gamers such as your friends or the greater community, or on tech enthusiast sites such as this one. Then, there?s the Siberia V2 which might be SteelSeries?s best known gaming headset in recent time. It was first released in 2009 as SteelSeries new flagship headset and its success spawned numerous colors and related designs including USB and lighted variants. For many long years, the Siberia name was dominated by the Siberia V2 until now. The Siberia Elite is the proud new member to the Siberia family that continues the tradition SteelSeries set forth with the original in 2004. Read on to see how this headset sounds and feels!"

VisionTek 120GB mSATA SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Feb 01 2014 | 3:26P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mSATA rush is officially on as desktop PC usage plummets and laptops, especially ultra-portables are the hot sellers. These devices are cramming more and more hardware into an ever shrinking space so why use a 2.5? x 1/4? drive when you can use an mSATA drive that?s roughly the size of a matchbook. VisionTek, best know for their graphics card products, has dipped their toes in the SSD pond and what better controller to start out with than the ├╝ber-popular SandForce SF-2200 series controller that has been used by nearly every SSD maker on the planet. We also saw them leverage this same controller paired up in their PCIe SSD recently. They sent us over a 120GB version to test out so we rolled up our sleeves and got to work..."

News: A subjective look at the A8-7600s gaming performance
     Sat, Feb 01 2014 | 12:28P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As long as you`re willing to dial back the in-game details, AMD`s Kaveri-based A8-7600 APU is fast enough to play the latest DirectX 11 titles. But do older and more casual games require fewer compromises? We`ve taken a subjective look at the chip`s performance in a wide variety of less demanding titles to get a sense of how it fares."

Attitude One Sturmovik Gaming Keyboard
     Sat, Feb 01 2014 | 11:36A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whether you`re a casual user, gamer, enthusiast or even a professional the keyboard and mouse are without doubt the two most crucial peripherals and that`s why some of the very first PC peripheral manufacturers like Microsoft focused in further developing them long before switching to anything else. Since then manufacturers have not only altered the appearance of the keyboard quite a bit but they`ve also used new key technologies and have implemented several new and innovative features to increase productivity and help in other areas as well like gaming. However no matter what we`ve seen so far in the end the entire concept still remains the same (for good or bad). Now as you all know our reviews mostly focus on mechanical gaming keyboards since these are the hot peripheral for both gamers and professionals alike but since some of you have asked for mainstream keyboard reviews today we will be taking a look at the Sturmovik Gaming Keyboard by Attitude One."

AMD Richland A10-6790K Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Feb 01 2014 | 11:10A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So to be a little more objective, we place the A10-6790K APU against the Intel Haswell i5-4430 CPU that comes with the HD 4600 iGPU. Costing up to 46 more than the APU we can expect a lot of CPU horses, but how well does it do when considering the complete system?"

Cooler Master Goes Apples at 2014 CES Gets HAF Stacked
     Sat, Feb 01 2014 | 9:06A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Along with seemingly everyone else at CES 2014, I caught Cooler Master straying from their PC case and peripheral?s roots and into other areas of interest. Benchmark Reviews visited Cooler Master?s suite at the Palm?s Resort and Casino during CES 2014 and we found some interesting new products that you might not expect to see from the company that brought us the HAF series of cases."

Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse Review
     Sat, Feb 01 2014 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mouse really is all that and a bag of chips. You`ve got your standard mouse functionality followed up with an added tilt wheel and twelve buttons to do nearly anything you can come up with. You have the option to use the G-Shift button to add in a full second set of 19 buttons as well as a mode selector to add in basically two more sets of twelve to the game. You can set three saved profiles to the mouse to take with you on the go and additional to your local machine for all the games and programs you desire. The Logitech G600 is quite the work of art in more than just the gaming world."

     Sat, Feb 01 2014 | 6:26A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Epic Gear DeziMator is a mechanical gaming keyboard with a extraordinary design. The peripheral is very solid and 70 percent of the board is made of aluminium. In addition we find macro keys, multimedia FN buttons and a red LED backlight. The features and the introduction seem very good, we are quite curious to see it in action."
