SanDisk 64GB Extreme USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 4:52P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SanDisk 64GB Extreme USB 3.0 Flash Drive is one of the fastest USB drives that you can buy today and we were impressed by the numbers that we were able to reach. To see sequential data transfer numbers hitting 215MB/s read and 189MB/s write in CrystalDiskMark was simply amazing. This drive is the fastest offered by SanDisk and is also one of the fastest USB 3.0 Flash drives to be offered by any company..."

TT eSports White Ra Special Tactics Mousepad Review - XSReviews
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 4:03P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
White Ra is something of a folk hero in the StarCraft II scene. His good manners and beautifully twisted English are fondly regarded by all. The basis of his reputation in the progaming scene are his `special tactics`, an-oft quoted reference to his creative and insistent play. The term featured on the Tt eSPORTS Saphira mouse that I had the pleasure of reviewing earlier, and it`s even more prominent on the product I`m reviewing today, the White Ra Special Tactics mousepad. Will this accompanying mousepad achieve the same high score? Read on to find out. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Samsung DV300F Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 11:59A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At first look, the Samsung DV300F`s front LCD makes it stand out from the crowd, but the camera`s most impressive feature is its Wi-Fi sharing capability. It allows you to transfer photos to your smartphone, post directly to social sharing sites, or transfer them to a PCall without wires. Despite this neat feature, the 16-megapixel camera struggles with image quality at even modest ISO settings."

Inversion (PS3) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 11:50A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Inversion (PS3) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com The storyline for Inversion is a simple one, set in the near future of the fictional location of Vanguard City we take on the role of Davis Russell, a young police detective who starts out just trying to get home to wish his daughter a happy birthday. Davis`s partner, Leo Delgado, tags along, since he seems to have nothing better to do and it`s just as well he does because Vanguard City is about to be attacked by an invasion of thuggish alien types called Lutadores."

ARCTIC MC101-A10 Review @ Vortez
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 10:46A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For review today is the MC101-A10 Home Entertainment Centre, a compact HTPC based around the new AMD Trinity APU platform. As you will see, the raw specs of the MC101-A10 are significantly improved from the MC001-BD making it a more well-rounded system for the front room or the bedroom. Whilst not silent, ARCTIC have brought their cooling expertise to bear with the aim of very low noise operation to create a more pleasant experience when watching High Definition Video, Digital Terrestrial TV and Internet browsing."

MSI R7870 HAWK Review and CrossFire Performance: AMD HD 7870 on Steriods
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 10:29A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The design of the R7870 Hawk is a good one. It does achieve its goals of being a very overclockable, yet cool running card. It is aimed at the extreme enthusiasts who are not afraid to try to break a few records. There is a mystique about the Hawk card and the GPU Reactor, but in terms of actual everyday use, the R7950 is a better overall choice for the average consumer. If we focus on what this card was designed for, it is a fantastic product. Unfortunately for most users, that functionality will largely go unused. If a user is going to go the extreme cooling route though, this is the perfect card for their needs."

ASUS P8Z77-V Thunderbolt Motherboard @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 9:05A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the market for a new LGA1155 motherboard, but don`t want to spend the cash on a top-end enthusiast level product? Or maybe you just don`t need all the extra frippery, but instead are just looking for a solid workhorse board. While ASUS is certainly happy to cater to users with some extra cash in their pockets, they also have a nice selection of midrange motherboards that don`t trim as many features as you might think. Benchmark Reviews takes a look at ASUS` mainstream Z77 offering, the P8Z77-V."

Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 Super OverClock Review
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Celebrating Tahiti's "half birthday" last month, AMD relaunched its Radeon HD 7970 with a "GHz Edition" that increased the reference design's core clock speed from 925MHz to 1GHz with the intention of allowing the company to claim it offered the world's fastest GPU. But the festivities were short-lived for several reasons. Now Gigabyte has taken matters into its own hands with what seems to be a far more interesting solution. Armed with five fans, nine heatpipes and a huge vapor chamber, one might consider the HD 7970 SOC to be overkill, and to that we say "hell yes!" Our inner enthusiast has a penchant for all things impractical -- even if they're tough to recommend from a value perspective. Read on to find out what Gigabyte's premium offering brings to the table.

CM Storm Trigger Keyboard Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we tested the CM Storm QuickFire Pro keyboard, we pointed out that it was a simple model, with neither extra USB ports nor programmable functions, and it had only a few illuminated keys. Now the company is releasing the Trigger, which is basically a more advanced version of the QuickFire Pro, with everything that was missing previously. Let`s describe the product and then evaluate the new features."

Cooler Master HAF XM mid-tower Case Review
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master, one of the leading case manufacturers, has recently launched their latest addition to the HAF series, the HAF XM. The HAF range targets gamers, wanting functionality, maximum hardware compatibility and excellent cooling under any circumstances. Modern high end gaming setups usually comprise multi GPU setups, big CPU coolers and likewise power supplies. Case designs have to be constantly adapted to suit the needs of its end users. Easiest solution is to opt straight for a big tower case. Having more than adequate space, ready to being stuffed with the biggest and baddest hardware available. However the size of these cases can be way out of proportion to fit under your desk. A pain in the butt to transport as they mostly weigh a ton or they are just too expensive. With the mid tower HAF series Cooler Master has addressed most of the aforementioned statements. Time to explore what the new HAF XM has to offer.

FSP Aurum Xilenser 500W Fanless PSU review
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The FSP Aurum Xilenser 500W has no fan whatsoever, and the housing consists mostly of empty space. The power supply is therefore able to take advantage of the naturally created airflow. Even the heatsinks are quite modest. FSP has tried to make the design so efficient that it creates almost no heat that needs to be dissipated.

Posted by: STAFF
Another Ultrabook has made its debut on the market and this time it`s the Toshiba Satellite U845W. It sports an attractive design, a beautiful ultra-widescreen display and solid performance. It does run quite hot at times and the keyboard could use some work. In all, it`s a worthy addition to the Ultrabook category."

The new FORTRESS power supply series from Rosewill has 450 W, 550 W, 650 W, and 750 W versions, all with the 80 Plus Platinum certification. Let`s see if the 650 W model is a good product."

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.
