Borderlands 2: Tiny Tinas DLC Bunkers and Badasses Gameplay and Walkthrough @ TechwareLabs.com
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 5:43P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome readers to another review of Gearboxes baby Borderlands 2. Today we get to see first hand at how Gearbox`s version of Dungeon and Dragons is and how well they can incorporate a board game into an FPS. First and foremost, I used the software that I did my previous review on to get some of these shots and to actually film my video. I hope you enjoy the scenery of this DLC because I know I did. Their mix of spooky and medieval definitely gave a brand new feel to an already amazing game."

Corsair Raptor M30 Review
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Raptor M30 is the new entry level gaming mouse from Corsair. It uses an optical sensor Avago ADNS-3090 with up to 4000 DPI, the same you usually find on higher end models like the M40 from the same manufacturer. The Raptor M30 also features a competitive price tag, which is reason enough for us to find out wether the rest is also convincing or not.

Corsair Obsidian 350D Case Review
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Branded the Obsidian 350D, the newcomer crams its more expensive sibling's features into an affordable microATX package and sports the same clean, black brushed-aluminum finish, handy tool-free design and innovative cable management. While the base 350D is available for around $90, a second edition goes for $110 that adds a side window. So how does Corsair budget Obsidian fair?

Club 3D MST Hub review: three monitors and
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 4:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Club3D MST hub does exactly what it promises, making it possible to hook up six monitors to an AMD graphics card that doesn't have six monitor connectors. The hub is useful for more things than just gaming. Having a workplace with three monitors can improve productivity, and since most laptops are equipped with only one digital monitor port, the MST hub is the perfect solution if you don't have a docking station.

Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB & 1TB Drives
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung has been aggressively bolstering its solid state drive line-up for the last couple of years. While some of Samsung's earliest drives may not have particularly stood-out versus the competition at the time, the company's 830 series and more recently the 840 series of solid state drives-especially the 840 Pro--have been excellent, both in terms of value and overall performance in their target markets. Today we're going to give you a taste of a couple of Samsung's latest consumer-class solid state drives in the just-announced the 840 EVO series of products. As the name suggests, the SSD 840 EVO series of drives are an evolution of the Samsung 840 series. These drives use the latest TLC NAND flash to come out of Samsung's fab, along with an updated controller, and also feature some interesting software that can significantly impact performance as well.

Dolry HiFi Stone S
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So, here we have an exceptional little piece of hardware that will both impress and come in handy in many situations. Even down to chucking it into your pocket when heading off to a weekend BBQ to impress the in-laws while taking over their sound system! Less impressive however is the price tag – at a substantial $89 it is a little hard to swallow. In saying that, there is certainly a great market out there and those who will be willing to pay for it gladly, either to save selling off that expensive Bose sound system, or just to add it to a couple of average sound systems you have lying around the house.

Seagate 600 SSD 240GB (ST240HM000)
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 9:50A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although hard disk drives (or mechanical drives as some call them) have been around for many decades and names such as Seagate, Western Digital, HGST (Former Hitachi GST) and Toshiba have been tied to them only recently did they all of them decide to turn their focus to the manufacturing of solid state drives. Now this is somewhat strange since when the first consumer oriented SSDs started to appear roughly 5 years ago they were manufactured by companies that had nothing to do with storage media prior and although many of us in the industry hoped for the above companies to make a move and take the market by surprise none of them did. Seagate was the first to release an HDD/SSD hybrid with their Momentus XT 2.5 drives along with a couple of enterprise oriented SSD models but that was just about it and so my guess is that they all stayed out of the game not only to see how SSDs would fair in the market (just to be on the safe side of things) but also for prices to drop at acceptable levels. Well Seagate is back again with their first consumer oriented solid state drive model the 600 SSD and today with us we have the 240GB variant."

NZXT H630 Silent Ultra Tower Computer Case Review
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 9:06A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT has dabbled in quiet cases before (Hush, H2). While I don?t personally have experience with those particular chassis, I?ve gathered the attempts in the past have left consumers wanting. It appears a revived Phantom line has also provided another opportunity for NZXT Technologies to tackle the ?silent? segment once again ? can NZXT bring the H series of chassis to new levels with the H630 Silent Ultra Tower Computer Case? Benchmark Reviews has a chance to answer this question."
