Roccat Kone Pure and XTD Gaming Mice Review @ TechwareLabs.com
     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 8:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The phrase German engineering has always signified the absolute top in function and efficiency, and today we get to put that to the test. Hailing from the Rhineland, today we have a dual gaming mouse review! Roccat has sent us two models from their Kone line: the portable Kone Pure, and the full size XTD. This line of gaming mice are aimed at those for whom customization is king. As a matter of fact, the head line on the boxes reads Max customization Gaming Mouse. With all of this hubbub about options, features, and settings that can be changed and rewritten, Roccat is putting out quite the order: gaming mice with interchangeable bells and whistles, and at an affordable price; the Pure is around $70, while the XTD goes for $90. Can they fill this order, or do Roccat end up spreading it all too thin? Lets find out!"

     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 7:16A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Diamonds UE3000 is one of the simplest products we`ve ever taken a look at, but its also one that could prove to be a life-saver if the network card in your desktop or notebook decides to die without notice. It also happens to be extremely reliable, causing us to forget were even running a USB adapter, versus onboard or add-in."

Club 3D MST Hub Review @ Ocaholic
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 5:46P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the MST Hub, Club 3D has a device in its portfolio, that allows you to connect three displays on one DisplayPort 1.2 connector. In the end the system recognizes the three attached devices as independent displays, which is possible thanks to the so called multi strem technology (MST).

     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 5:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We benchmarked and reviewed the Zotac GeForce GTX 780 AMP! Edition. This special, overclocked version of Nvidia’s near-flagship model has a lot to recommend it, but as our test showed, there are some aspects to keep in mind if you are considering this striking video card. On paper it’s the fastest GTX 780, but in practice that’s not the case due a less aggressive Boost setting. We closely examined the card’s BIOS to find out why.
