     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are a lot of really great smartphones on the market today. With various manufacturers competing for their slice of the smartphone market, there are a lot of factors to consider when shopping for one of these high-end phones. Although some consumers may find the myriad of options confusing or overwhelming, we find it exciting. After all, competition leads to better devices and features and we're the benefactors. In this product showcase, we'll take a closer look at three of the hottest phones currently on the market: the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S 4, and LG Optimus G Pro. Not to leave all other phones out in the cold, we'll also consider a few additional superphones that have some standout features and are just rolling out to retail now, to give this trio additional competition.

     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink

This case is all about silence, performance, and modular design. That being said, I am inclined to give this the “Modders-Inc. Must Have” award.

"The Roccat Sense Gaming Mousepad is seek & lightweight and has a top surface that's treated with an slippery, friction-reducing microcrystalline coating and the bottom is 2mm of anti-slip rubber. It measures in at 400x280mm, so it's the perfect size and comes in two designs, Chrome Blue & Meteor Blue. If intense, high-speed gaming combat is what you're into, this pad would be excellent." ~3dGameMan.com

Cooler Master HAF XB PC Case Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 9:24A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review I have a case or chassis from Cooler Master called the HAF XB. This is a smaller style case, what might be called a lanbox but its not just for gaming of course as you can use it for anything. What makes the HAF XB really special is the fact that it also doubles as a test bench. Me, being a reviewer, can very much appreciate a tech bench as it makes life easier for testing products. Just because its a test bench doesnt mean that the average user cant use it, in fact being a test bench allows you to fully open it up and get inside making installation of you system just that much easier. The HAF XB is small in size but its got a lot of room inside thanks to the excellent design of it. The HAF XB allows you to use even the largest video cards and you can easily fit three of them inside for a nice gaming system. The case comes with two fans pre-installed but there is room for more if you need more cooling, and the case can be used with liquid cooling as well or any combination thereof. Its from Cooler Master so you know its a quality made case, and that HAF XB is that and more. The case is very well designed to maximize all of the available space and still make it easy to install even the highest end systems in it. So read on for a rather lengthy review of the HAF XB"

Razer Blade 14-inch Gaming Notebook Review @ Custom PC Review
     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When Razer first launched original Blade notebook all the way back in 2011, I think very few people could imagine how far Razer would get as a system integrator. At the time, Razer was facing quite the uphill battle being not only a first time system integrator, but also having a product that was both underpowered and overpriced. Carrying a mid-range mobile graphics card along with a dual core processor. ..."

Looking for a cheap Z87 motherboard for your 4th generation Intel Haswell CPU? The ASUS Z87-A is packed with features and is in many ways a copy of the more expensive ASUS Z87-Expert. But there are differences, even though the performance on the ASUS Z87-A Motherboard is pretty good.

Plantronics RIG Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 8:16A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There?s lots of gaming headsets compatible with computers and gaming consoles, but until now, there wasn?t a headset that had a solution to receiving phone calls during gaming sessions. Plantronics newly announced RIG allows one to continue to play their game while receiving and answering calls from the headset alone. It?s rather ingenious how it?s implemented, probably inspired by Plantronics experience with mobile and business headsets. An in-line switch toggles the microphone to receive between Game Mode and Mobile Mode..."
