Icy Dock MB882SP and MB982IP Hard Drive Converter Reviews @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Jul 21 2013 | 3:59P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you have hardware that doesnt support 2.5 hard drives and would like to step up to a SSD or one of the new hybrid 2.5 hard drives, you have a few choices. One option is to get a bracket to install the 2.5 drive into a 3.5 drive bay. However, that is often times not a good option, Icy Dock has shown us a better way to convert 2.5 drives into the 3.5 form factor. Using either of their converter enclosures will allow you to use a 2.5 drive in a 3.5 drive bay, a NAS, server, external hard drive enclosure or virtually any device that uses 3.5 hard drives..."

Luxa2 H5 Premium Car Mount Review@ Pro-Clockers
     Sun, Jul 21 2013 | 11:55A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We reviewed the Luxa2 H1 Holder not too long ago. This well-built device allows you mount and position your mobile phone to a more comfortable height and angle when wanting to view your favourite YouTube video or movies. But it is only useful when sitting on a solid surface like a table or desktop. But what about those that are on the go running around preforming errands? Well, there is the Luxa2 H5 Mobile Holder for that."

VisionTek GoDrive 480GB
     Sun, Jul 21 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“As more consumers move to SSDs, the choices are many in terms of models and capacities. If you have need of a larger drive capacity, then budget certainly becomes a consideration for those who want something affordable without having to compromise performance. Choosing a SandForce-based SSD is a safe bet for most consumers, as these drives offer a strong blend of speed and affordability. There are many on the market, and today we’re looking at one from VisionTek, the GoDrive 480GB. With a larger capacity to suit those with such needs, and coming with a very attractive price tag of $400, the VisionTek GoDrive 480GB looks rather enticing. But what about performance? Can this SSD put up numbers worthy of the price? Let’s find out.”

Streacom ST-FC8B EVO Mini ITX Case
     Sat, Jul 20 2013 | 4:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enthusiasts, hardcore gamers and professionals may prefer to use full tower PC Cases for their systems but there`s really no doubt that every hardware component will get smaller as technology progresses (both Intel and AMD are aiming towards that). Of course to date the really power hungry high performance systems belong inside full towers for a variety of reasons but more and more people turn towards smaller mITX cases for their new HTPC systems which can actually be used for gaming as well something which was not really possible a few years ago. Things however don`t end there and although in the market there`s an abundance of midi and full tower PC Cases the same can`t be said about mITX/HTPC ones especially for people who are looking for high quality solutions. Lucky for every consumer out there new manufacturers emerge all the time and although most don`t jump in all at once to bring quality products into the market one of the latest players that listens to the name Streacom seems to be doing the exact opposite of that."

High Power Astro GD-750 Watt PSU Review @ HiTech Legion
     Sat, Jul 20 2013 | 3:59P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The High Power Astro GD-750 (or AGD-750) takes all of this innovation and puts it into one 80-PLUS Gold package. The High Power Astro GD-750 is semi-modular and boasts a single 744W 12V+ rail along with semi-passive Intelligent Cooling. The AGD-750 takes the reasonable approach to semi-modular, with 24-pin, 8-pin and 4+4-pin permanently attached, along with one PCIe, and ten SATA, four molex and four 6+2-pin PCIe, all modular using flat cables. Internally, the AGD-750 uses solid Japanese capacitors, along with Digital VRM and DC-DC converter on the minor rails for solid power delivery. The 135mm fan uses semi-passive cooling, with no activity when loads are below 25% for the utmost in quiet and efficiency. On the rear of the AGD-750, there is an active real-time power meter to monitor usage and load./"

Icy Box Big City Vibes IB-HPH2 Headphones @ Rbmods
     Sat, Jul 20 2013 | 11:55A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to take a look at headphoens from Icy Box, who weve previously recieved review products from before. They have named the headphones Big City Vibe or IB-HPH2 if you prefer that. According to earlier reviews and user experience they should have good sound and a balanced bass so I have high hopes for these headphones that you can pick up for fairly inexpensive on the market."

Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Gonzalo Galvan`s Pipe Fusion build. Here is what he had to say about it: It`s my second project, but the first with such dedication, at first were some simple changes but slowly began to appear new ideas that led me to change the entire interior to adapt to the watercooling. I am very happy with the mod to be better than I expected."

The SSD Review has Posted a New Article!
     Sat, Jul 20 2013 | 9:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Perhaps the most respect an SSD review site can gain is to be trusted to report on SSDs that carry with them a great deal of confidentiality and secrecy in their purpose and design. Being consistently chosen as the first and one of the very limited evaluators is icing on the cake. Such is the case between The SSD Review and TCS and has been for some time as we have previously published reports for the TCS Galatea and TCS Proteus SSDs. Our report today is rather special as we are looking at an entirely new design from TCS, one that has been aptly named the TCS BGADrive. The TCS BGADrive was released in January 2013 and one can`t imagine the work it takes to get from a simple conversation to final hands-on analysis and report of such equipment. This has been months in the making and much more cooperation than we have ever seen for a review prior. As much as cannot be spoken of or shown, we think our end report will grab and hold your attention as the TCS BGADrive is definitely something we don`t get our hands on every day. Two things stand out when we speak of TCS products, and these are MIL-STD-810 and the fact that these SSDs are created and trusted for `mission critical applications`. Defined, a mission critical application is one in which the failure of the device could result, directly or indirectly, in personal injury or death. These applications demand equipment that can stand well above the norm in pressure, shock and weather conditions, and that is what MIL-STD-810 is intended for."

ASRock 990FX Extreme9 review
     Sat, Jul 20 2013 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you compare the ASRock 990FX Extreme9 to previously tested AMD 990FX boards, you can see that the new ASRock board is one of the most comprehensive boards on the market. Whether you will actually use eight USB 3.0 and eight Serial ATA 600 on an AMD board is another question, but if you're in need of high-end Socket AM3+ board, this 990FX Extreme9 is a great option.

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.
