ASRock Z87 Extreme4 LGA 1150 Mainboard Review
     Thu, Sep 26 2013 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This board is built on the new Intel Z87 chipset. It is a mainstream model: not two simple to suffer from lack of public interest to it, yet not too complex to scare potential users away by excessive onboard technologies and high price.

Posted by: STAFF
In his latest blog post, TR contributor Jason Fox opines about Apple's new iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. He criticizes the former and praises the latter, adding that the iPhone 5S would have generated much more enthusiasm had Apple not unveiled iOS 7 at WWDC two months ago.

Western Digital RED WD30EFRX 3TB SATA III HDD
     Thu, Sep 26 2013 | 10:26A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There`s no denying that the popularity of Network Attached Storage devices (or NAS Servers as i like to call them) has increased at such a degree over the past 3 years that even regular consumers purchase them for home use whether that`s for downloading files from the internet or as media servers. However due to their design as complete closed systems there haven`t really been many hardware components or peripherals released aimed especially at NAS servers but something tells me that this may change sooner rather than later. Western Digital was perhaps the first manufacturer to take a significant step towards providing special HDDs for use with NAS Servers featuring low temperatures, noise levels and power consumption without really sacrificing speed in the process. Well it did take quite a while for us to get one of these latest special HDD models that belong in the RED line but it was well worth the wait since we managed to secure the 2nd largest model available namely the 3TB variant."

Corsair Force LS 240GB Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Sep 26 2013 | 10:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Force LS moves away from the LSI SandForce controller which has been a mainstay throughout the Force lineup, and takes on a Phison offering as well as Toshiba 19nm NAND flash. Corsair boast that Force LS can sustain 555 MB/s and 535 MB/s transfer rates whilst supporting TRIM, garbage collection and SMART functions. The Force LS is poised to deliver great performance and yet have a respectable price-tag to suit."

SuperTalent USB 3.0 Express Dram Disk Review
     Thu, Sep 26 2013 | 9:04A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the first time for as long as I can remember, I am sitting here stunned at what I just learned, and experienced, in new technology. Just as I could use words such as amazing, unbelievable and remarkable to describe the Super Talent Dram Disk, I could also guarantee your amazement by letting you in on the fact that ST Dram Disk`s PCMark Vantage results brought in a Total Point Score of 851915 and a top transfer speed of 5007MB/s while conducting tests. Not believing this, we decided to transfer a 2.5GB 1080P video file to measure transfer speeds and it couldn`t be done as this file was transferred in tenth`s of a second, if not faster. Do we have your attention yet?"

OZONE Oxygen In-Ear ProGaming Headset
     Thu, Sep 26 2013 | 12:43A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just like everyone else out there over the course of my life there have been quite a few occasions when Ive been out looking to get a set of earphones but had to compromise either in terms of quality or clarity due to a limited budget. For good or bad i am a strong believer that almost always you get what you pay for (obviously excluding the times you pay way too much for a brand name) and that`s especially on the spot when we are talking about audio and video related devices such as headsets, graphics cards, LCD screens and more. However there have been a few very rare occasions when Ive come across cost-effective products that manage to go head to head with others that are many times more expensive and promise everything youd ever want. This is exactly what happened with the brand new Oxygen In-Ear ProGaming Headset by OZONE which has been keeping us company for nearly two weeks now."

ASUS Google Nexus 7 2013 review: twice as good for £199
     Wed, Sep 25 2013 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year's Nexus 7 from ASUS and Google was for a long time the 7-inch tablet to beat. It had a very competitive price at £199, and offered much more than what the competition had at the same price point. They’ve managed to do it again. Right now, you can't find a better tablet than the new Nexus 7, in terms of price vs. quality.

The Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277 offers category leading performance and a healthy feature set, but the ho-hum design and short battery life keep it from ranking higher."

Corsair Carbide 330R Quiet Mid-Tower Case Review
     Wed, Sep 25 2013 | 10:12A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Carbide 330R Quiet case can easily accommodate extended VGA adapters and offers four internal HDD/SSD mounting trays and three external 5.25 bays but does not have any built in 3.5/2.5 HDD hot-swap options. Overall the build quality is good, the case is easy to work with, and it is has the potential to offer very good cooling with minimal noise."

KingSpec MultiCore 1TB Driverless PCIE SSD Review
     Wed, Sep 25 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PCIe SSDs are a funny animal as they have been out for a few years yet haven`t really caught on just yet. They are very limited to either very expensive and system specific enterprise variations or require driver installation that isn`t always as simple as instructions seem. We have yet to see an affordable plug and play PCIe SSD solution that has the `get up and go` workset without the need for driver installation and thoughts of compatibility issues that keep most from PCIe purchase. At the consumer level, the indisputed king of the hill is still the OCZ Revo 3x2 PCIe SSD which is LSI SandForce based, capable of speeds up to 1.5GB/s and can be had under the $700 mark. That price point will leave them in that position, as they have been for years now without a true competitor, at least until we see what their upcoming Vector PCIe release has in store. The stage just might be set this next year with Mushkin, Mach Xtreme and KingSpec all jumping in with PCIe SSDs of their own and with an interesting variation, they are driver-less and a simple plug and play solution."

ASUS Memo Pad FHD 10 review: affordable
     Tue, Sep 24 2013 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Memo Pad FHD 10 is a tablet that doesn't draw a lot of attention to itself with its modest design. It's a very solid product, however, and with the 32 GB model costing only £299, it's an appealing Full HD tablet. The screen is generally of good quality, even if it could be a bit brighter, especially when you're outside. If you like having lots of different connectors, the FHD 10 will not disappoint. The Intel SoC ASUS used in the FHD 10 offers reasonable performance, but we probably would have preferred to have this 10-inch tablet with the Qualcomm chip instead, since it draws less power under light loads. Should the version with the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro become available in the UK, the one with LTE, it will likely cost more than the Intel version.

BIOS Option Of The Week - Limit CPUID Max. to 3.
     Tue, Sep 24 2013 | 12:01P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
