USB 3.0 Flash Drive Roundup July 2013
     Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 4:26P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall when it comes to price, performance and build quality it is hard to go past the SanDisk Extreme. The Patriot Supersonic Magnum is also an excellent option if you are after maximum performance. Having said that we have no problem recommending either the SanDisk Extreme or Patriot Supersonic Magnum, both are excellent quality flash drives.

ROCCAT Kone XTD Mouse & Hiro Mousepad - BCCHardware
     Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 11:55A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being able to set profiles that activated for different programs or games meant I was able to really fine tune my button and sensitivity setup. I was definitely impressed that I didnt have to worry about switching profiles when I opened something. With the profile linked to a specific program, it automatically loaded the profile I needed. It saved me so much time. . ."

[Tech ARP] Hard Disk Drive Myths Debunked! Rev. 5.2
     Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 11:33A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This guide was written in response to the numerous fallacies about the hard disk drive that are still being propagated in many forum discussions. As you read through this guide, you may think that some of these myths may have been made up. We wished that was true. We collected these myths from various discussions we heard or read over time. So, let`s get down to basics and examine some of these common fallacies or myths and debunk them! *Here are the changes in this update : * *- Added Myth #58 on knocking on a malfunctioning hard disk drive to unlock its bearings and get it spinning again. - Added Myth #59 on why hard disk drive cannot go faster than 15,000 RPM. - Added Myth #60 on keeping a tablet (iPad / Nexus / Surface) in the same bag with a notebook to prevent the magnets in the tablet and its smart cover from wiping out data in the notebook`s hard disk drive. * *We now have 60 HDD myths in this article!*"

Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB SSD RAID 0 Performance @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 11:23A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As expected, pairing a couple of drives like the Neutron GTX`s which already put up superb performance numbers singularly, really kicks up performance to a whole new level. In fact, in most of our tests, the throughputs nearly doubled from what we saw on a single drive. With the LAMD controller, we barely saw any difference between compressible and incompressible data which translates to a more even real world experience..."

Azio Levetron Mech5 Mechanical Keyboard Review @ HiTech Legion
     Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 10:08A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Azio Levetron Mech5 mechanical gaming keyboard has all the features you would expect from a gaming keyboard. In fact, the Azio Levetron Mech5 keyboard goes one step further to ensure that any type of gamer can customize the Mech5 to their own personal taste and needs. The modular design of the Mech5 makes it a better keyboard than I would have expected, during normal use for typing (as I am doing now) all the modular pieces can be removed to give the keyboard a clean stream lined feel. Then, when it is time to get serious and break out the big guns, I snap on the extra modular parts and have as many customizable macro keys as anyone would ever need. The Mech5 has 5 macro keys built on to the main keyboard, and each one has a switchable dual function. Then add in the six key top piece and the entire number pad and you have some serious fire power."

ASUS GTX 760 DirectCU II Graphics Card
     Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the GTX 760 card launched we were quite surprised as to the power on tap, and were more excited to see what exactly can be done when put in the capable hands of some of the board partners. ASUS stepped up with a custom version of the GTX 760 with a very capable looking cooler and even a neat implementation of a single 8 pin to replace the normal dual 6 pin of the GTX 760 model. Lets dig in and see what this midrange custom offers over the reference model."

NVIDIA GTX 760 Review
     Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA`s GeForce GTX 760 is going to for the most part fill a niche between the HD 7950 and HD 7870 and deliver performance that is slightly better than the GTX 660Ti that it is replacing. You wonder what`s the upside if the performance of the GTX 760 is similar to the GTX 660Ti? Cost to the consumer is one thing. Current pricing from Newegg has the GTX 660Ti ranging from as low as $259 after rebates to as high as $315 after rebate. The GTX 760 is going to retail for $249 with today`s hard launch with stock available at all your popular e-tailers and brick and mortar stores. NVIDIA`s partners will have custom versions available and with the trend over the last few launches the pricing for these cards should prove to be attractive."

Patriot SuperSonic Mini 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
     Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 8:30A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s no secret that the most ideal way to carry regular data (and not mission critical ones) is without doubt to own a portable hard drive not only because you can`t really find many USB flash drives in the market with capacities exceeding 256GB but also because the ones that are available cost many times over the price of a regular portable hard drive and thus are out of reach for most people. Now as we all know USB flash drives come in various capacities to cover all the possible uses people intend for them but although prices have taken a serious dive for the past years making even 64GB USB flash drives quite affordable size is also a significant factor and for good or bad there aren`t that many tiny solutions around at 64GB (even if they were not everyone has use for 64GB). Furthermore there are even less USB 3.0 compatible flash drives in the market that can fit in the tiny size category but thanks to Patriot we now have the SuperSonic Mini USB 3.0 Flash Drive line."
