Android to the Maxx DROID Razr Maxx @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 9:17A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The list of different Android based phones available at any time is both overwhelming and frustrating. Its almost impossible to get good feedback from friends who have the same phone because of this. So its rare than you have any one phone that manages to stand out. Doing something different is the only way to do this normally, but most times this ends off coming off as gimmicky or just lame. When Motorola introduced the Droid Razr Maxx it caught my attention right away. This was just before our trip out to San Francisco for the GTX 680 Editors day, what a better way to put the Maxxs proposed batter life to the test!"

Antec 1000W HCP Platinum power supply review
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 9:17A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Antec 1000W HCP Platinum power supply. Recently they submitted their all new HCP (High Current Pro) 1000W power supply. Their gold model has been selling for a year now but is replaced with this version. It was further improved and got a 80 plus Platinum certification, meaning the PSU can pimp and show off its most efficient power supply label available in this bizz. Read the review right here"

ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe - mini ITX Madness! @ Ocaholic
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 9:17A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the P8Z77-I Deluxe, ASUS has a first mini-ITX motherboard in their portfolio which can also be used for overclocking. The most impressive thing about this board is the power design. You can find an VRM design that features eight phases, which is really impressive for such a small motherboard. Furthermore this is the Deluxe model, so there will also be plenty of features."

Corsair 550D Review @ Vortez
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 9:17A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As with other cases in the series, the 550D adopts a minimalist approach to case design, pushing for flair and elegance. The 550D focusses on providing users with sound isolation via noise damping and closed off panels, so if you are seeking a computer chassis with professional looks and silence in mind, the 550D could be ideal. The Obsidian Series has impressed us before with build quality being at the forefront of priorities, will 550D continue a good thing? Let`s find out."

Posted by: STAFF

XigmaTek GIGAS chassis review
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 5:31A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MicroATX cases are typically smaller than typical ATX towers. This means that although the same standard hardware is supported, it is supported in lower quantities. Typically these boxes are used as a suitable HTPC home (home-theater personal computer), but with the looks the GIGAS offers, it would make a great gaming system as well as even lengthy graphics cards, ( up-to 320mm (12.5 inches) can be installed.

Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 14-inch Portable USB Monitor Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 5:20P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you are mainly a desktop user and are used to your home setup it is very uncomfortable and hard to get adjusted to a different system or a laptop. This happens to me all the time when I am traveling, especially because my home system is setup with dual displays. Laptops only have 1 screen, but what if I was to tell you that Lenovo has a light in thin portable travel monitor that you can plug into a laptop or PC that has a USB connection? The monitor I am talking about is the ThinkVision LT1421. Read on as we check it out!"

NZXT Phantom 410 Special Edition Mid-tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 5:20P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the NZXT Phantom 410 Special Edition, NZXT went directly to the fans and asked them what colors they wanted their cases. Voting took place, and the top four color combinations have come to life as the NZXT Phantom 410 Special Edition. We took a look at the NZXT Phantom 410 upon its initial release and found it to be a truly excellent case all around. The Phantom 410 SE is a mid-tower case with clean cut lines that are designed by Johnny Hou at NZXT in his trademark styling, right at the cutting edge, while making an elegant impression. To add to this, NZXT has added top quality finishes to the Phantom 410 SE in gunmetal/black trim, black/white trim, black/orange trim and white/blue trim to make for an excellent housing for a truly showpiece build. In addition to great aesthetics, all of the features of the Phantom 410 have been held over./////"

Tech News: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Home Network Storage System Review - NAS At Its Finest
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 5:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
External drives have given rise to NAS (Network-Attached Storage). Accessing and accumulating data at one central location has become all the rage, as HTPC, media streaming, and HDTV-ready devices and technologies have become more affordable, and thus have made the push into the homes of consumers. Our report today will examine the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Home Network Storage System and, although it may be not be our typical review of SSD technology, it is storage just the same."

Thermaltake Level 10 GTS Snow Edition Review
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 5:20P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well shame on me, and so much for forming preconceived notions. I somewhat discounted this case at first because it is so far removed from the ideals of the original case. What I should have done was look at this case for what it is. Frankly, it is a successful run at designing a case that is 1/7th the price of the original but still a very fluid and nicely finished mid-tower with one of the best hot swap systems in the industry. The GTS does all these things while managing to retain a wee bit of the Level 10 `cool` factor. The interior is nicely finished and makes for a good working space while installing components with grommets that actually stay in place"

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.
