AMD Releases Latest Generation of G-Series Embedded Products
     Sat, May 11 2013 | 8:12P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is just another step for AMD to get into markets they previously overlooked or had abandoned long ago. As mentioned above, AMD will continue to lower TDPs, and eventually they will produce ARM based designs of their own to fill in the gaps left by higher power x86 products. Until that point, a G-Series processor would be a pretty compelling basis for a highly interactive TV or set top box."

Garmin nuvi 2597LMT Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, May 11 2013 | 4:27P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Garmin nvi 2597LMT inherits many of the positive characteristics of its more expensive sibling while leaving an extra $130 in your pocket. But the question we ask every time we review a GPS is whether it`s worth it to buy a dedicated device rather than using a free app on a smartphone. In the nvi 2597LMT`s case, the answer is yesespecially if you don`t have, or want to use a smartphone."

Corsair Obsidian 350D review
     Sat, May 11 2013 | 12:12P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for."

Tomb Raider @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, May 11 2013 | 9:59A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tomb Raider is one of those franchises that has been around forever. Whether you are a lifelong fan, or someone who buys different installments periodically, there is always something to do with Laura Croft on her insane adventures. This time we take a look at the plainly titled Tomb Raider, a reboot by Crystal Dynamics that hopes to bring the franchise back to level of glory it had on the original Playstation. I can only hope that there is something as silly and exciting as locking the butler in the freezer to keep me entertained."

ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini review
     Sat, May 11 2013 | 9:11A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,In this article we review the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini edition, a compact performance graphics card designed primarily for small form factor PCs with mini ITX motherboards. The dual-slot card measures just 17cm and features the NVIDIA GTX 670 GPU. ASUS has re-engineered the DirectCU cooler to fit small form factor cases. While shorter, it introduces a copper vapor chamber placed directly on top of the GPU for faster heat spreading and dispersal with 20% lower temperatures than reference GTX 670."

iStarUSA BPN-DE340SS Storage Bay Adapter Review
     Sat, May 11 2013 | 6:37A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few years back when we didn`t have 3/4TB drives and we were all struggling to make due with 320/500GB ones there was one thing pretty much every single person i know in the IT industry wanted and that was one or more hot-swap 5.25 storage adapters for 3.5 drives. That way everyone could insert a 3.5 drive, take a backup (or share files with friends), remove it and insert another one in just a few seconds (back then docking stations didn`t really exist). Now things have changed and so to most people even a single 4TB drive is way too much, however we are not most people and the same can be said about professionals and enthusiasts around the globe. Unfortunately feature-rich and high quality 5.25 hot-swap storage adapters that can hold over three 3.5 drives are extremely hard to come by in the market today and if you are to sacrifice most if not all of your 5.25 drive bays you want to make the most out of it. iStarUSA designs and manufactures industrial grade products for the most demanding of users and lucky for us they also make some of the best 5.25 drive cages for both SATA II/III and SAS I/II drives like the BPN-DE340SS."

Logitech G510s @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, May 11 2013 | 4:23A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a market that is slowly filling up with mechanical keyboards, there have only been a few companies recently who have been making higher end rubber dome keyboards, Logitech being one with their G510. Logitech recently reintroduced their whole gaming lineup with the exception of the G710+ and we jumped all over the chance to take a look at what they are doing with their bread and butter keyboard. Its Logitech, we have high expectations, hopefully they will be able to beat them."

MSI GTX 650 Ti Boost TwinFrozr Gaming 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sat, May 11 2013 | 1:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI`s GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Gaming uses the company`s famous TwinFrozr dual-fan cooler. In our testing we see fantastic noise levels that make the card almost inaudible even with heavy gaming. The card is overclocked, too, which makes it a great buy, being just $5 more expensive than the reference design."

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.
