ASRock X79 Extreme6/GB Motherboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 9:42A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When a new chipset comes out almost every motherboard manufacturer releases a slew of motherboards and it is really hard to choose which one is right for you. As it stands right now ASRock has 10 motherboard based on the X79 chipset. Today we are checking out one of ASRocks mid-range X79 motherboards the X79 Extreme6/GB. It is really hard to call this board mid-range as it has all of the features any enthusiast, gamer or overclocker would want. With its sleek looks, three SLI/CrossFire PCIe 3.0 slots, support for up to 64GB memory and 10 SATA connectors this board means business. The Extreme6 comes in two flavors the normal Extreme6 and the Extreme6/GB. The GB version which we are reviewing comes with a PCIe add-in Game Blaster card that features Creative Sound Core3D 7.1 CH HD audio and Broadcom Gigabit LAN. Read on as we take a look!"

Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 Rev 1.1 Review
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 9:05A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The build quality is excellent and just what I have come to expect from Gigabyte. The one concern I have with this motherboard is some of the software that accompanies it, specifically Touch BIOS and EasyTune 6. They both are a bit baroque in both form and function to the quality of Gigabyte`s motherboards, and I would like to see the company go back to the drawing board with the AMD UEFI and overclocking software for an update that matches the tremendous quality of the motherboard itself. Other than this issue, the GA-990-FXA-UD7 is a top flight motherboard that will take your AMD setup just about as far a you want it to."

Corsair Neutron SSDs review: first SSDs with LAMD controller
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's impressive that LAMD is able to join the high-end segment right-away with its first controller in the Corsair Neutron 240GB and the Neutron GTX 240GB SSDs. Looking at the benchmarks, it's clear that their new controller is faster than SandForce, and faster than the previous-generation Marvell. The outstanding performance of the Neutron SSD can be seen in a number of areas. The sequential write speed of the Neutron GTX is very high, for example.

OKI MC562dn review: small office LED all-in-one
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 9:02A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
the end, the OKI MC562dn is an interesting solution if you're looking for a small office all-in-one with lots of features. Considering the high price tag, the print quality is not quite on the level it should be. The high purchase price is offset somewhat by the low cost per page. If you can live with the price, and you are most interested in high print speed and large number of features, then this is a very good all-in-one.

Samsung SSD 840 Pro 256GB review: the fastest SSD currently around
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung SSD 840 Pro is by far the fastest SSD currently around- faster than the OCZ Vertex 4, faster than the Corsair Neutron GTX and faster than the Plextor M5 Pro. Samsung also has a proven track record in terms of reliability and quality, as the Samsung 830 series had very few known issues. History is of course not a guarantee for future success, but there is no reason to think that the new 840 Pro series will be any less dependable.

12 micro-ATX round-up: compact chassis
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We noticed two distinct directions in this round-up of 12 micro-ATX chassis, not in terms of market positioning, but more in terms of philosophy. The micro-ATX chassis from Chieftec, Cooler Master and Spire are clearly budget products. They're made out of thin steel, have a low-quality finish and virtually non-existent cooling. It's not all bad news, however. Fractal Design and Silverstone have proven that a micro-ATX chassis can also be really high-quality. The Core1000 from Fractal Design is not only very affordable, but has a quality finish, lots of expansion options and cools very effectively. The Silverstone Fortress FT03 came out on top, combining a unique design with modern connectors, easy installation and outstanding performance.

Cyborg S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 7:59A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A year or so ago Mad Catz released the Cyborg R.A.T. series mice. These mice were the craziest looking computer peripheral that Ive ever looked at till this point. What made the R.A.T. series great was the facts that not only were they unique and cool to look at they were solid performers. Bob reviewed the M.M.O. 7 Mouse a while back and gave it great remarks. The Mad Catz Cyborg S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard (S7) takes the unique level of the R.A.T. series mouse and puts it to shame, the big question is can it hold up to the level that the R.A.T. performed at?"

Edifier Spinnaker Bluetooth Speakers Review @ Techgage
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 7:59A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been a long time since we reviewed anything from Edifier, but with the recent release of the Spinnaker speakers, they were hard to resist. We decided to grab the bull by the horns and take them for a spin. With an eye-catching design, puns out of the way and wireless to boot, will these speakers catch your ear as well as your eyes?"

Posted by: STAFF
Recently Enermax enriched their high-end MAXREVO series with the addition of a 1500 W unit. The new MAXREVO 1500 W uses almost the same platform as the Platimax 1500 W and LEPA 1600 W PSUs, so it easily achieves high efficiency throughout all load range along with tremendous power levels."

QNAP TS-869L and TS-269L Turbo NAS
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 5:08P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
QNAP seems to have the market well covered with its new high-end 2,4,5,6 and 8-bay TS-x69L series. These new NAS devices look great, perform well and are packed with features such as dual Gigabit LAN, eSATA and of course USB 3.0. Those looking for a high performance NAS device that supports anywhere from 2 drives up to 8 should certainly have the new QNAP TS-x69L series in mind.

LG 55LM760S TV review: higher mid-range TV
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 5:07P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The LG LM760S has almost all of the features of the high-end LM960V, but is slightly more affordable. We prefer the design of this model with its rounded base compared to the more expensive one. In terms of features, LG's televisions are great, with things like Smart TV, the ability to order on-demand films and passive 3D.

Olympus SP-620UZ
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 5:06P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Olympus SP-620UZ is an affordable, compact (but not pocket size) superzoom camera with a 21x zoom lens. It's affordably priced, but not as refined as its pricier competition. It offers strong performance to go with that 21x zoom lens but the LCD is low-res and video recording is limited to 720p."

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.
