NuForce NE-700M Earphones With Microphone
     Tue, Aug 27 2013 | 9:24A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although the trend of our times demands from pretty much every electronic device to be connected wirelessly to others i doubt we will see the end of wires any time soon since as we all know they do allow data (regardless of type) to be transferred better and faster. This is even more important to audiophiles since audio streaming using both Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi connections is indeed inferior to that of regular wired connections and thus i don`t think the day when they will choose to replace that is near. Needless to say the same applies for earphones but with the current number of available models in the market from low and up to enthusiast grade ones choosing the right one for you is not an easy task even if you know what you want. Naturally high and enthusiast level audio products always tend to cost many times more than low/mid-end ones but fortunately Nuforce with their latest NE-700M earset aims to change that for the best."

LCDSysInfo for GOverlay
     Tue, Aug 27 2013 | 9:00A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a PC builder and gamer I find it fun and incredibly interesting to monitor many things in my set-up, from the temperature of my CPU and its fan speed, to the frames per second and GPU load in games, just to see how capable my PC really is. Traditionally I’d use a bunch of programs to monitor all these stats, including SpeedFan and Fraps, gathering info through pop-ups or windows on a second monitor. Then I was sent an LCDSysInfo – a small 2.8-inch LCD gadget that can be configured to show various stats – and monitoring my PC became significantly easier.

OCZ Vector 256GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Aug 27 2013 | 6:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Agility and Vertex product lines from OCZ in their fourth generations it was exciting to see OCZ change things up and introduce a new model late last year. With a unique design and an Indilinx controller inside it looks like it could really shake things up. Im excited to see how it will perform, especially compared to the Agility 4 and Vertex 4 that we have recently taken a look at. OCZ gave it the Vector name and in some cases that means a force or influence, lets find out if the OCZ Vector will be a force or influence in the SSD market."

ADATA XPG V2 2x4GB DDR3-2800 CL12 1.65V Review @ Ocaholic
     Mon, Aug 26 2013 | 8:20P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are an extreme enthusiast, who likes to push memory to the rugged edge, you might not have the word Adata in your daily vocabulary. Nevertheless, the lack of attention doesnt seem to stop this maker from taking shots at the memory Olympus. To see if it can shake things up at the top of the food chain or is just a swing and a miss, we are going to take a look at one of Adatas recent offerings."

SteelSeries APEX Gaming Keyboard
     Mon, Aug 26 2013 | 9:50A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During the past 3 years or so most gaming keyboards we`ve seen roll-out from the majority of the gaming peripheral manufacturers out there have been mechanical ones since they offer superior durability (build quality), much longer lifespan (key presses) and tactile feedback compared to regular membranes ones (or at least that`s what the general opinion is). Of course one of the things i love about this industry is that there`s always at least one manufacturer out there who likes to stand out from the others and do things quite differently and Mad Catz did exactly that with their S.T.R.I.K.E. line of gaming keyboards a while back since they went with a special membrane design instead. Well although i can`t really say if that was the right choice or not (time will tell just how good these keyboards were) SteelSeries has also decided to launch two new membrane (rubber dome) based gaming keyboards the feature-rich APEX and the more mainstream APEX[RAW] and so today we will start with the APEX."
