Samsung LN40E550F Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 1:59P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung LN40E550F is a 40-inch LCD HDTV that offers deep black levels and good color quality. It also has a great price at around $450, which is always a great selling point. However, images seem to have a noticeable softness to them and lacks some connectivity seen in similar TVs."

Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft Surface Tablet (64GB / Windows RT) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com One of the aspects of Windows 8 Pro that really stands out when using it is that the operating system feels very much like it is designed for new, touch based hardware. For that reason one of the devices that should offer a great experience is Surface, Microsofts own tablet which runs a streamlined version of Windows 8, Windows RT. Today we take a look at the Surface to see if the new Windows experience finds an ideal home on the new hardware and if the tablet itself can compete in the high end of the mobile market."

[Tech ARP] The Thomson / Technicolor TG784n Port Forwarding Guide
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 12:36P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Port forwarding is important if you have applications or games that require an unobstructed connection from a computer on your local network to a remote service or server. What it basically does is open a port in your firewall and direct all traffic that is sent to that port to a specific computer on your network. Think of it as opening a secret entrance in your city wall and then routing all traffic that goes through it to a specific house. If you do not set up port forwarding for your application, it may not be able to connect to the service or you may have to live with reduced performance. This port forwarding guide is for those who are using the *older Thomson TG784n* router, or the *newer Technicolor TG784n v3* router. Although the example uses the latest Technicolor TG784n v3 router, the steps are the same for the older Thomson TG784n router. Let`s get right down to it!"

Inno3D iChill HerculeZ GeForce GTX 660 review
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 11:23A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the Inno3D iChill HerculeZ GeForce GTX 660. The new mid-range card series is using a HerculeZ 2000XE cooler, with its three slots the card is completely silent and runs very cool. We received SKU model C66M-2SDN-E5GSX which comes factory overclocked as well with a boost clock frequency at 1058 MHz and the memory at 6212 MHz. This to date makes it the fastest GTX 660 we have tested and as such for just over 200 EUR the product beats the GeForce GTX 660 Ti. Interested ? Well go read the review then."

AVADirect Mini Gaming PC Review: Ivy Bridge GTX 680 in a Mini-ITX Package
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 11:13A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Obviously then I came away from my time with the AVADirect Mini Gaming PC pretty impressed. The BitFenix chassis is small ENOUGH to be an SFF case while still being big enough to support a full size power supply and GTX 680 graphics card. While you can definitely find small systems, I don`t know if you can find them smaller and as powerful."

ASUS P8Z77 WS Workstation Z77 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 10:31A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At stock operational speeds, the board was a performance powerhouse, easily running with whatever was thrown its way. Couple that performance with the boards ability to support 4-way NVIDIA SLI or AMD CrossFire and you have the potential for a gaming super-board. Add the gravy of ASUS superior implementation of their UEFI BIOS and you have a winner on your hands."

Rapture Game Studios @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 9:26A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those who have been to one of our LAN parties know that our location is central to many larger cities, Fort Wayne being one. Weve attended a few LAN events in that area, including one hosted by member Reaper from Fort Wayne Gamers. It was exciting enough to hear that John had volunteered his coding expertise for an indie game studio just on the heels of releasing their first game, but we were even more so when we learned the studio was local, operating out of Fort Wayne. We quickly made contact, and were invited to sit in during one of their weekly meetings."

Microsoft at War: Grading Redmond’s Battle Record
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 9:03A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft sits on the edge of a product launch that is plainly among the most important in the company’s history. It comes at a time when the company’s traditional hardware partners are facing ferocious market pressure from the commoditization of their products, and of course, the juggernaut known as the iPad. As can be expected, the company’s many cheerleaders and haters are out in full force. Pundits can and will pontificate on Windows 8’s chances. However, what might be more useful is looking at Microsoft’s other make or break moments. The upcoming launch is far from the first time that Redmond has fought with its back against a wall. A backward glance at these moments, and careful evaluation of them, may provide a better, ahem, window into the company’s chances this Winter.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
