REVIEW: VisionTek GoDrive 120GB @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Jun 11 2012 | 4:18P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we know, not everyone can afford the best of the best, so for the rest of us mere mortals, VisionTek has a new SSD that is more accessible to those of more limited budgets: the GoDrive. The VisionTek GoDrive still has the impressive SF-2281 controller, but lacks the Toggle NAND. Instead, it has sychronous memory that should still be able to provide excellent performance, while also being a bit lighter in the wallet. For those who still crave performance but don`t have the loftier budgets to always satisfy those wants, can the GoDrive stand up as a solid contender and alternative? Let`s get to it and find out."

     Mon, Jun 11 2012 | 4:11P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are more 27-inch all-in-one desktops on the market these days, but very few are worth big bucks. The Dell XPS One 2710 manages to put almost every technology and feature we`re looking for in a compact and stylish chassis. And it has excellent performance, thanks to its new Core i7 (Ivy Bridge) processor and Nvidia GeForce (Kepler) graphics. If you`re a media enthusiast, this is the desktop you`re looking for."

ECS Announces A85F2-A Deluxe Motherboard with AMD Socket FM2 

Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) has announced the A85F2-A Deluxe, a new motherboard built around the AMD A85X chipset with support for the latest socket FM2 CPUs.

The A85F2-A Deluxe is one of the most powerful and reliable motherboards currently available.  In the ATX format, this ECS motherboard features two 2nd generation PCIe x16 slots for graphics card upgrades and CrossFireX support, as well as three 2nd generation PCIe x1 and 2 PCI slots for other cards. Up to 64 GB of dual channel DDR3 memory can be installed in 4 sockets, with a maximum speed of 1866, or up to 2300 for overclockers. There are seven 6 Gb/s SATA sockets, with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, & 10.

Expansion and connectivity options in the A85F2-A Deluxe include up to 6 USB 3.0 ports, 8 USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit LAN, and a 6Gb/s eSATA connectors for fast external storage. Separate HDMI, DVI, and D-Sub VGA ports provide graphics output, and there's 8-Ch HD Audio. The motherboard features the new user-friendly graphical uEFI BIOS with ECS MIB X, and a multi-language interface.

For the ultimate in stability and reliability, the A85F2-A Deluxe is Nonstop Certified by ECS. Motherboards with ECS Nonstop Certification deliver a hassle-free computing experience by solving common PC hardware problems before they can even occur. Hardware enhancements and a strict series of specially-designed tests combine together to protect PCs and ensure that all ECS Nonstop Certified motherboards can be relied on for stability and reliability far into the future, long after competing products have failed. Nonstop features include enhanced gold plating on critical contacts, and all solid capacitors and Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) protection for VGA, USB, LAN and HDMI ports.

The A85F2-A Deluxe is bundled with Norton AntiVirus software, Muzee, Cyberlink Media Suite, and the ECS iEZ utility, which includes the eBLU BIOS Live Update Utility, the eDLU Drivers Live Update Utility and the eSF Smart Fan Utility.

In addition to the A85F2-A Deluxe, four other models will released with the socket FM2: A75F2-A2, A75F2-M2, A55F2-A2, A55F2-M3. The newest ECS Socket FM2 motherboards build on the already strong performance of FM1 motherboards by adding a host of powerful new features and technology upgrades in the Trinity technology platform.

New features in this generation include support for up to 4 displays and AMD Eyefinity Multi-display Technology, and HDMI Deep Color to accurately display billions of colors, bringing a new level of realism and color accuracy. AMD Turbo Core 3 extends the Turbo Core performance boost to the GPU, and CrossFireX gives access to ultra-high performance graphics with add on cards. There are 3 dedicated display outputs. Support for industry standards is also upgraded, with Open GL 4.2, DisplayPort Version 1.2, and Open CL 1.1 or later. Enhanced features are standard: like AMD Universal Video Decoder (UVD) and Video Codec Engine (VCE) for ultra-fast video encoding and decoding.

The new A85F2-A Deluxe and the other ECS socket FM2 series motherboards offer the latest technology for faster, more stable performance and extreme graphics realism.

ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jun 11 2012 | 11:06A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The X79 Sabertooth lives up to its TUF name in both looks and performance. The integrated UEFI BIOS gave us plenty of options for configuring everything on our system and did it with a user friendly interface. The board`s support for quad GPU graphics configurations from both NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossfireX is a huge plus and expected for high-end motherboards in this class. The X79 Sabertooth`s bundled software was very stable and useful during testing and increased the overall value that consumers look for in all their PC hardware upgrades."

A Futurelooks News Flash - COMPUTEX 2012 Coverage Featuring GIGABYTE BitFenix and CORSAIR (Video)
     Mon, Jun 11 2012 | 9:06A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that, If youve been keeping an eye on our Twitter and Facebook, youll know that we promised to come up with some video coverage of COMPUTEX. But how could we do that if none of the Futurelooks Team are in Taipei? Well, because companies that we cover year round think our readers are so fantastic, they put themselves in front of the camera using their smartphones, palmcorders and really, whatever they could get their hands on, and sent us a bunch of great clips to work with. As a result, weve been able to assemble some pretty decent looking coverage just for you. So hats off to GIGABYTE, BitFenix and CORSAIR because heres what they were showing off at COMPUTEX Taipei 2012! *"

AviiQ ReadyClips USB Cables Review @ ThinkComputers.org

Just about every USB device once purchases comes with a USB cable. However, any person who has a lot of USB devices can veritably explain that not all USB cables are created equal. We first saw Aviiqs ReadyClips USB cables at CES this year. This trio includes cables with a standard USB A male connector on one end and a micro USB connector (for phones, primarily), mini USB connector (for cameras and such), or an iPod connector."

Posted by: STAFF
The Canon PowerShot SX150 IS is a 14.1-megapixel superzoom digital camera that has a wide 12x optical zoom. It has a nice set of features in addition to both manual and semi-manual exposure modes for users who want more control.

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.
