Microsoft at War: Grading Redmond’s Battle Record
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 9:03A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft sits on the edge of a product launch that is plainly among the most important in the company’s history. It comes at a time when the company’s traditional hardware partners are facing ferocious market pressure from the commoditization of their products, and of course, the juggernaut known as the iPad. As can be expected, the company’s many cheerleaders and haters are out in full force. Pundits can and will pontificate on Windows 8’s chances. However, what might be more useful is looking at Microsoft’s other make or break moments. The upcoming launch is far from the first time that Redmond has fought with its back against a wall. A backward glance at these moments, and careful evaluation of them, may provide a better, ahem, window into the company’s chances this Winter.

NZXT Aperture M Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 8:29A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have reviewed quite a few cases in my time and there are always two things that cases do not have, which are extremely common and many people use them on a daily basis, a card reader and USB 3.0 ports. With all of our gadgets that use different types of storage cards I am actually surprised that we do not see more card readers on cases. As far as USB goes USB 2.0 still rules the game and we occasionally see cases with a USB 3.0 port, but it is still not that often. NZXT has a great solution that gives you both a card reader and USB 3.0 ports in a single 5.25-inch bay device! Interested? Lets take a look!"

Mionix Sargas 900 And Ensis 320 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 6:34A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In for review today are two of the mousemats from their new Sargas and Ensis ranges: the brushed-aluminium Ensis 320 Luna and gigantic Sargas 900. The Sargas 900 is the largest of the Sargas fabric-topped mousing surfaces, measuring a full 900mm wide compared to 320mm and 400mm variants. The Ensis 320 Luna is diminutive by comparison, only 320mm wide yet topped by a aluminium and backed by a rubberised layer to grip the desk underneath."

Kingston HyperX Predator 2666MHz 8GB Kit Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 1:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past few months we have had the pleasure of reviewing some very fast memory. We have seen some 1866MHz kits from the likes of Corsair, Crucial, G.Skill and Kingston. And the fastest up to this day has been a kit from G.Skill which was dialed in at 2400MHz by default. But today we are topping that with a new 2666MHz kit from Kingston. The HyperX Predator at 2666MHz boast timings at 11-13-13-26 and some pretty awesome heat spreaders."

3D Printing vs Patents and Gun Controls @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 12:47A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
3D printing technology has progressed beyond prototyping and developed into consumer production. What was once an expensive process that enabled quicker proto-fabrication has now become an affordable means for regular users to construct or duplicate any object of their desire. Inventors have championed 3D printers as devices favorable to their pursuit of product development, but the same technology will allow consumers the ability to copy patented work or firearms without consideration. The resulting dilemma will play out in courts around the globe as 3D printing devices and the software that coordinates them are steadily improved."

Icy Dock MB981U3S-1S HDD Docking Station @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Nov 01 2012 | 10:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Time after time Icy Dock has delivered products that are rock solid in every aspect, and the MB981U3S-1S HDD Docking Station is no exception. While docking stations are not an item that would be feature rich, the Icy Dock MB981U3S-1S covers all of the functions one could ask for and does it in typical excellent fashion. The MB981U3S is capable of both 2.5 and 3.5 drive compatibility with a simple drop in. Connectivity features 5Gbps USB 3.0 SuperSpeed, as well as 3Gbps eSATA. Backwards compatibility to USB 2.0 assures that usage with older computers will not be an issue. The MB981U3E features a rugged ABS outer shell, with dual opening dust cover for easy drive insertion. An oversized eject button makes drive removal as easy as a simple button push. The On/Off button has a built in LED with power and drive activity indicators. Included with the MB981U3E-1S are USB 3.0 and eSATA cables as well as power adapter."

GameTiger Triple Case Roundup Review
     Thu, Nov 01 2012 | 9:52P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being the least expensive of the three cases from GameTiger I expected to find some corner cutting and shortcuts to produce a $59 case. I couldn`t have been more wrong. While this isn`t a case that you can kick and punch without worrying about damaging it, it is more than sturdy enough to stand up to everyday use. Cable management was difficult since there isn`t really much room to hide anything but at the same time without a window, as long as the cables are out of the way, there`s no real harm to that. Overall the styling is top-notch, the fit and finish is surprisingly good, and the cooling performance is impressive considering only a single fan is included by default. I don`t think you`ll find another case with as many features as this one for such a low cost - the performance and laid-back styling are exactly what the inexpensive case world has been missing!"

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.
