     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Using frame times, we review the Sapphire 7870 XT, which sells for around the same price as the Radeon 7870, but uses AMD's Tahiti LE core rather than Pitcairn.

Cyberpower Fangbook X7-200 Gaming Notebook Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 8:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The fine folks at Cyberpower PC have sent us over one of their latest creations, and truth be told, I`m looking forward to this one! What we have today is the Cyberpower Fangbook X7-200 gaming notebook. The entire Fangbook series features a massive 17.3 screen (1920x1080 HD LED-Backlit), Intel Core i7-3630QM quad-core processors (to start), and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX and GTX 680M graphics. To say that these things are beasts doesn`t do them justice. The Fangbook has the different versions to it, each with slightly different specifications and price points. The Fangbook X7-200 that we have in our hands today starts out at $1549..."

Cougar Challenger chassis review
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 4:16P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,In this review we have a peek at the Cougar Challenger, a mid-tower chassis that is loaded with options whilst remaining very affordable as it`s priced competitive. It`s different alright. The Challenger mid-tower case is particularly targeting gamers demanding for huge upgrade-ability capacity, nice airflow and optimized ventilation characteristics. Curious ? Well, let`s have a peek then shall we ?"

Finis SwiMP3 X18 2GB Review - XSReviews
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 4:16P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s getting to that time when the good intentions of the new year resolutions are becoming more of a distant memory than a daily driver. Many people start the year with the resolve to get in shape, lose weight and exercise more, but by the time April rolls around 80% of those gym memberships will be unused. To try and help keep that motivation going, we`re starting a small series of reviews looking at fitness and health gadgets, diving in ("

First Impressions of Trion Worlds Defiance @ Techgage
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 4:16P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`m not a sci-fi guy, and I certainly don`t need another MMO to play so whats the deal with me taking Trions just-released Defiance for a spin? Because I was sent a copy, and sometimes thats all the reason I need. Plus, I do like the premise of the game, and figured that maybe just maybe, Id be drawn in. After about five hours of play, I can definitely feel a bit of a pull."

Fractal Design Newton R3 Platinum 600W Review @ Ocaholic
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 4:16P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Newton R3 600W Fractal Design offers a high end 600W PSU that fulfills the 80 Plus Platinum certification. The price is around 150 USD. It is unclear for us who is the OEM manufacturer of this PSU. It looks like FSP but we are not sure about that."

How Tablet PCs Could Save Civilization @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 4:16P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve read many articles published by various editors on the death of the Desktop PC at the hand of Tablets, and I don`t put much stock in them. I, personally, will never give up having a Desktop. The raw power capabilities needed for ripping, converting, editing, compiling, and securing various data will always ensure it a place in my home, until the Desktop becomes a Wrist Computer with a direct neural interface. Or, at least, that`s my hope of what it will become. However, there is a potential death for the Desktop PC in the future, and it`s has nothing to do with advancing technologies..."

How to Enable 64-bit Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 7
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 4:16P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For compatibility reasons, Microsoft designed IE10 to run in 32-bit mode by default - and unlike its predecessors - there isn`t an obvious option or shortcut to launch the 64-bit version. It took us a while, but we finally found a way to run IE10 in 64-bit mode."

How To Install Windows 8 Guide
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 4:16P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Setting up your user account is different from prior versions of Windows where the account was typically local. In Windows 8 you can have it tied to your Microsoft Account, and you need it to be if you want to use the Windows Store to download and manage applications. Of course you will need an Internet connection to sign into your account, but if for some reason one is not available, you can use a local account. Local accounts are more limited in what they can do because they cannot access to the Windows Store, but if you are worried about privacy or just do not want data syncing to your Microsoft account, this is what you will want. For this guide, I chose to use a Local account."

Ineo Alienvibes W402 Speaker Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 4:04P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Alienvibes W402 is designed not only as a simple speaker set, with USB/SD card and aux inputs and full pre-amp with wireless remote, the W402 can be a one stop multimedia sound center for multiple devices. At the heart of the W402 is a single reflex bandpass enclosure housing a 5.25 subwoofer, with fully functional controls and a piano black finish. Also residing in the enclosure is a three channel amp capable of 15w RMS x 2 to the satellites and 40w RMS to the sub. The satellites of the Alienvibes W402 are wooden construction with two 3 woofers and one 1 tweeter in each. The inclusion of the two 3 drivers allows for better reproduction of the midbass frequencies it handles."

ASUStor AS-604T 4-Bay NAS - BCCHardware
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 3:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That`s right. At the end of the day the ASUStor AS-604T has no major complaints about it at all. It starts up and shuts down quickly. It`s quiet. It`s fast. It`s powerful. It has a lot of flexibility and options that make it work in almost any situation - home or office. On a good network, it is so fast that you won`t be able to tell in many situations if your storage is local, USB 3.0 or on this NAS. This box has some great features and comes in at $100+ less than something comparable. That is another win. . ."

BenQ W1060 1080p DLP Projector Review - XSReviews
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 11:56A | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`ll be looking at a rather interesting gaming gadget: A projector. Digital projectors have continued to go down in price (or up in quality) are definitely becoming a viable alternative to an HDTV for rooms that can accommodate them. While a decent 40? HDTV will set you back 400, for a little extra you can get a projector that`ll produce an image many times that size at the same 1080p resolution. A link to the article would be much appreciated."
