AMD A10-7850K Kaveri @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Apr 21 2014 | 2:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past few years AMD has invested most of their efforts into their APU line. This has paid off for them in the way of performance improvements every launch and even more importantly this focus helped them score all three of this generations gaming consoles. Considering how many of the PC games that we play today are ports from those consoles AMD is in a great position to benefit from all of the fine tuning done on their console hardware. They recently introduced their Kaveri APUs and after spending some time making changes to our CPU test suite and retesting some of the competition I finally have the chance to sit down and talk about how their latest APU performs both from a compute side of things as well as the performance of the integrated graphics processor."

Lumsing 11000mAh External Battery Bank Review @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Apr 21 2014 | 9:55A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I have another portable battery for mobile devices and its a big one at 11000mAh in capacity but whats even more interesting is that it has five USB ports which you can use all at the same time. The battery doesnt really have any specific name, its from a company called Lumsing that makes many different products, this battery being just one of them. The Lumsing battery has five USB ports but they all vary in output from .5A up to 2.1A so you can charge a multitude of devices from small Bluetooth headphones up to tablets. Read on to learn more "

Thermaltake Urban T81 Full Tower
     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 5:57P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a market filled with all kinds of PC Cases by a huge number of manufacturers we all know how hard it is for someone to pick the right one for the job especially if price is of a concern. The reason i mentioned price should be quite obvious so if you`re aiming to get one of the most expensive towers in the market then you currently only have a handful of choices to pick from by just a few of the leading manufacturers. On the other hand if you`re on a budget things get tougher since most manufacturers out there aim for the masses and not enthusiasts, serious gamers and professionals so the number of available choices skyrockets. Primarily Thermaltake also seeks to win over the masses but from time to time they too release high quality and feature rich PC Cases aimed at serious consumers and the brand new Urban T81 Full Tower which has been with us for roughly a week now certainly wants to get in their ranks.

Acer Chromebook C720 SSD Upgrade To MyDigitalSSD M.2 (NGFF) 128GB SSD Worlds Easiest Upgrade
     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 2:08P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking for a new computer and are a typical PC user, you need to take a look at the Google Chromebook. There are three brands of the Chromebook (Acer, HP and Samsung), it is SSD driven which means lightning fast startups and operation, they get anywhere from 8 to 10 hours battery life, and they are CHEAP! After spending a few days with this new Acer C720 Chromebook and getting to learn the ins and outs, I can honestly say that this is the simplest PC I have ever held. In fact, this will be going to my wonderful mother (72 yrs old) who has never had a PC before this. The person that will have the most difficulty refitting themselves to the Chromebook, are us PC geeks that have gotten used to things just being a certain way."

Ultra-Speed DDR3 Revisited: AMD APU Memory Scaling
     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 10:04A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The R7 graphics in the 7850K responded in perfect linear fashion to each memory speed bump, and the overclocked system provided some pretty good FPS averages as well. I did have to use some very high voltages to reach stability more easily, but a user with patience and a very good CPU cooler could find a power/performance sweet spot with an APU like the 7850K that would not only blow away the experience of a console, but would be a heck of a lot of fun to play around with!"

Posted by: STAFF
The DS414 NAS from Synology is based on a dual-core Marvell Armada XP running at 1.33Ghz and is paired with a total of 1GB DDR3, which should be enough for home use and small business.

32GB OTG USB Flash Drive Roundup - Corsair Kingston Transcend @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Apr 19 2014 | 2:08P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There was a time just recently when there were no USB On-The-Go (OTG) flash drives on the market, but now there are hundreds of different models from dozens of brands. OTG USB flash drives are often referred to as dual-drives due to the fact they feature Micro-USB and Type A USB 2.0 connectors. Legit Reviews took a look at the Corsair Flash Voyager Go back in January 2014, but we have since received OTG Flash drives from Kingston and Transcend. Rather than doing individual reviews on each product we figured that we would compare all three drives to one another since they are all 32GB OTG USB drives aimed at the same consumer..."

The Cooler Master Elite 110 Mini-ITX Computer Case is a compact, cube style case that can handle some full sized desktop components, while maintaining a relatively small footprint.
