A Futurelooks News Flash - NVIDIA GTX 660 Ti Launch Day Round Up Featuring EVGA vs. GIGABYTE vs. MSI FIGHT!
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 6:45P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unlike the GTX 680, 670 and 690 launch, NVIDIA partners have really stepped up and very few, if any GPUs, are hitting the shelves with stock clocks. To represent the first batch of sweet spot GPUs, weve invited EVGA, GIGABYTE, and MSI for a look at their efforts to win you over in the sweet spot GPU segment. Lets see if the NVIDIA GTX 660 Ti is worth the upgrade! *"

[DreamWare Computers] Samsung S27B750V 27 LED Monitor
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 4:09P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking to further expand the use of your smartphone through your computer display, Samsung has started including MHL connectivity on some of their newer and higher end displays. MHL, short for Mobile High-Definition Link, is a standard for connecting mobile devices to high definition displays by means of their built-in USB connection. MHL doesn`t require any expensive hardware or software to use - if you have a supporting device and display then all you need is a single cable between the two! Samsung`s most recent display to support both MHL in addition to regular HDMI and VGA inputs is the S27B750V. The S27B750V is one of Samsung`s highest end LED displays and has a price tag to show it. I`m anxious to see if I`ll get my monies worth from this display or if luxury isn`t all it`s cracked up to be."

Under The Hood with Android 4.1, Jelly Bean
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 4:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Google claims Android 4.1, aka Jelly Bean, is the fastest and smoothest version of Android yet. When we took a look at the first Jelly Bean-equipped tablet a couple of weeks back, the Nexus 7, we felt Jelly Bean had a lot to offer users, both in terms of performance enhancements as well as new functionality. Here, we'll take a closer look at some of the new and improved features that come with Jelly Bean.

Acer Iconia Tab A700 Review
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Iconia Tab A700 is Acer's latest update to its Android tablet line-up. Featuring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a quad-core processor, the A700's claim to fame is its new 1920 x 1200 pixel, full HD display. The Acer Iconia Tab A700 should look familiar to anyone who has seen or used a 10-inch Android tablet before. The standard slate design measures 259mm x 175.2mm x 10.9in (10.2in x 6.9in x 0.43in) and weighs 1.47lbs. The tablet's dimensions and 16:10 aspect ratio display lend it much more to use in landscape orientation than in portrait -- something that is frequently said about 10-inch Android tablets.

Linux Is A Lemon On The Retina MacBook Pro
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 12:59P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are planning to buy one of the new Apple MacBook Pro notebooks with a Retina Display for use under Linux, hold off on your purchase. Running the Retina MacBook Pro with Linux isn`t a trouble-free experience and after using even the latest development code and jumping through various hoops, Linux on the latest Apple hardware is still less than an ideal experience. Linux support will improve for the Retina MacBook Pro in the coming months, but it`s not likely to see any proper out of the box experience until next year."

Phiaton PS 20 Bluetooth Stereo Earphones Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 10:08A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking to cut the cord between your smartphone or laptop then you should certainly give a pair of Bluetooth wireless earbuds a chance. We were shocked how well the Phiaton PS 20 BT earbuds sounded, but then again these were designed from the ground up for music. The bass quality stands out as being exceptional, but you can thank the large 14.3mm drivers for that..."

Super Flower GOLDEN KING 1000W Power Supply Unit Review
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 10:08A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up until a couple of months ago owning an 80 Plus Platinum power supply was not the easiest for many people thing mainly due to their high price tags but now things have begun to settle and so there are quite a few wallet-friendly 80 Plus Platinum certified power supplies out there for every enthusiast/gamer ranging from 500W and up to 1000W. Super Flower may not be the worlds most well-known brand but theyve been an OEM manufacturer for many of the leading companies in the field (NZXT and Kingwin are just two of those) for quite some time and now they are pointing the right way (in terms of pricing) with their latest Golden King 1000W 80 Plus Platinum certified PSU."

What Is The Best Sub-$100 Intel Z77 Motherboard? Find Out In Our Roundup! @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 10:08A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are going to be looking at three Intel Z77 motherboards that can all be purchased for under $100 before shipping. The three boards today will include the ASRock Z77 Pro3, BIOSTAR TZ77B, and the GIGABYTE Z77-DS3H. All three of the motherboards are considered full ATX though their dimensions are slightly under the full ATX measurement of 305mm x 244mm (12in x 9.6in). By keeping the PCB smaller, the companies are able to save some money on the production costs of each of the boards and pass the savings along to the end user. They may be losing some precious real estate on the motherboard, but they aren`t trying to pack as many `extras` on to the board..."
