Asrock X79 Extreme11 @ Pro-Clockers
     Sat, Sep 22 2012 | 11:09A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
But just when we thought they would not be able to top the feature rich X79 Extreme9 they up the ante with the granddaddy of them all with the Extreme11 featuring the same X79 chipset from Intel. The Extreme11 comes in at a very hefty price tag of $649 but ASRock did not hold out when it came down to packing the board with everything they had and more. Granted I could not fork over the money to obtain one of those off the shelf but there are many that can. So, is if worth it even to them? Let us check it out first."

SteelSeries Sensei MLG Pro Grade Laser Mouse Review
     Sat, Sep 22 2012 | 9:28A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whether we`re talking about car manufacturers, software developers or in our case electronics and PC hardware/peripherals manufacturers there have been plenty of times when we`ve seen many of them release the same product they had in the past with just minor improvements (facelifts and slightly improved specs for cars for example) which most of the time are not really that crucial to warrant the introduction of a brand new product/model. Personally i never liked that kind of business since in a way means that the previous owners of the same pretty much product paid the same amount of money to get something inferior (even if just by little) than what others have now. I am fine however when sometimes (although not very often) we get to see the introduction of an improved product version which sits on top of a particular line (such as factory OCed cards and fast car editions) and the latest gaming mouse by SteelSeries called the Sensei MLG (Major League Gaming) is exactly that."

Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Sep 22 2012 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair`s Vengeance 2000 seems to combine everything a gamer could possibly want in a headset: virtual 7.1 surround sound capabilities, long distance wireless operation and lightweight construction. But in a market filled with competing solutions (some of which are Corsair`s own), will its $150 price turn some people away?* *"

A Futurelooks News Flash - AMDs Virgo Platform A Guide to Socket FM2 Trinity and What We Know So Far
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 5:56P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its about that time again as AMD is gearing up to release a new round of processors to the masses. Were set to see a series of new processors based on the Piledriver architecture which include new APUs for laptops and desktops codenamed Trinity. The AMD FX line will also see a similar refresh which is slated for the beginning of Q4 2012. However, were expecting to see the FX lineup delayed until Q1 of 2013. Instead, were going to review what we do know about the upcoming Trinity APUs and the new Virgo Platform. *"

A Futurelooks News Flash - Dell XPS One 27 All-in-One PC Review
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 5:56P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Four years ago, I wrote a back to school guide for dorm-friendly technology on a budget. Yes, it still holds true that a good notebook PC will work wonders for students, but sometimes you still want to have a desktop and you still want to have a bigger screen. Unfortunately, you may not exactly have room for both a full desktop computer and an HDTV. You want something that can do both without sacrificing anything in terms of performance. Today, those wishes may just be one of several possibilities and we have one of them from DELL. A prime example of this is their new Dell XPS One 27. If you want a powerful desktop with a big screen but a not-so-big footprint, this could be the PC for you. *"

A Look at Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD for the PC @ Techgage
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 5:56P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* I took a look at Tony Hawk`s Pro Skater HD for the Xbox 360 back in July, and at that time, a PC version had never been confirmed. Well, a month later, it was, and its release happened just this week - and for a mere $10. Is it better than the console versions? Does it play better? Does it look better? These are the questions I sought out to answer."

ADATA SX900 128GB SSD Review
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 5:56P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the ADATA SX900 128GB SSD, we got to see results that came really close to what the drive was rated at. Our fastest readings peaked at a little over 550MB/s read and 510MB/s write. The testing hit the specified read figure, but came short by only about 10MB/s for the write testing. At a price of about $110, the drive offers good performance at a cost a little bit lower than other drives of similar performance."

Apple iOS 6 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 5:56P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apple`s latest iOS 6 isn`t as game-changing as previous versions, but it adds numerous features, such as a new Passbook app, a revamped Maps app, and new accessibility options that make it a must-have download if you own a compatible device. But some features aren`t available on all devices either due to hardware limitations or because they`re specific to iPhones or iPod touches."

Strontium AUTO 16GB Flash Drive @ Techreaction.net
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the dust settled from our testing we found out a few things from the AUTO USB. The Strontium AUTO USB does max out USB 2.0 with the read speeds, but the write speeds are slower, coming in at around 7MB/s. The chip on board was not able to be tested as none of our cars our friends cars had USB connections in their cars. If it does work as intended that will just be an added bonus. Another thing to keep in mind, this AUTO USB stick has an MSRP of $10 which is a huge factor in buying flash drives. It is nice and cheap with great read speeds and average write speeds for other flash drives in the price range."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
