LEPA G1000-MA 1000 Watt Power Supply Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 12:50P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The LEPA G1000-MA 1000W power supply is 80 Plus Gold rated, meeting the strict standards for efficiency. The cooling system of the LEPA G1000 features a honeycomb mesh and a 135mm variable speed ball bearing fan to keep the PSU cool while maintaining low noise levels. Four independent 12V rails are provided, each with a max of 30A load, for compatibility with high end CPUs and GPUs. The G1000 has a semi modular cabling design. Hard wired cabling is present for the motherboard, CPU, and (2) 6+2 pin PCI-E cables. Modular cables are available to be used for additional PCI-E connections and storage/accessory connections. LEPA has designed modern protection circuits into the PSU as well, with Over Power, Over Current, Over Voltage, Under Voltage, Over Temperature, and short-circuit protection."

Fractal Design Adjust 108 Fan Controller Review
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 12:00P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at the Adjust 108 Fan Controller from Fractal Design, which on the face of it is a simple six channel fan controller, but being a Fractal Design product it has no doubt got a few subtle style touches to be found. Fractal Design are quickly working their way to the top of my favourites list in terms of product design, I still think their Fractal R4, Node 304 and Node 605 are some of the finest chassis' on the market for their respective categories and in my mind the name Fractal Design is synonymous with high quality products, something that I have reflected on many a time in previous reviews of their products, all of which have proven themselves worthy of various eTeknix awards. Fan controllers are by nature fairly simple devices, in the sense that they have one intended function. Sure some products on the market find all kinds of complex and creative methods of performing this task, but the end result should always be the same, a method of maximising cooling efficiency, or minimising fan noise with ease.

CM Storm Ceres 400 Gaming Headset - BCCHardware
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 11:50A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`ll be reviewing a relatively new headset to the market - the Cooler Master CM Storm Ceres 400. Its sleek and stylish and could be a great alternative to some of the overpriced headsets that are on the market today. Some of the features that it boasts are high quality sound, a noise canceling mic, and a nice lightweight frame with some comfortable noise canceling ear pads. It also has an in-line volume control and mic mute switch which are very much must haves on headsets in this day in age. . ."

Acer Iconia Tab W510-1422 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:23A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer Iconia W510-1422 is a 10-inch tablet running Windows 8 (32-bit) with a docking keyboard for those times that you want to use a keyboard and mouse. Equipped with an Intel Atom processor, the Iconia W510 may be a bit underpowered compared with your regular laptop, but it`s efficient enough to give you all-day powerenough to not only last you through a full workday, but long into the night."

Thermaltake Level 10 Mouse Review
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:22A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the price, this elite mouse definitely needs to impress at every angle. Thermaltake does a fair job with the upgrade from the basics. The USB end looks much like a thumb drive with a cap and everything. The cap is on a dongle of its own and can`t be lost when plugged into the computer. As for most of you, it will be plugged in the majority of the time, but if you are always on the go, it has the ability to keep dirt and crumbs from your bag out of the contacts. It`s a neat feature that adds to the elite-ness of the design. At this point the braided cable is an essential feature of most peripheral items, and this one comes with a nice Tt Velcro cable tie for portability as well."

LG 84LM960V / LG 84LM9600 UHD TV review
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:03A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We tested the LG 84LM960V / LG 84LM9600 UHD TV, which is the first UHD television that we’ve reviewed. The detail and depth is amazing on this screen, provided you watch UHD material that’s still quite difficult to find. Full HD material is barely upscaled, however. The price tag is pretty daunting, even if this is actually the most affordable 84-inch UHD TV on the market. In the UK it costs £22,499, on mainland Europe its costs around 15,000 euro, and in the US $19,999.

Intel 335 Series 240 GB SSD Review
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has released its new Intel 335 Series SSDs featuring 20nm MLC NAND and a SandForce SF-2281 processor. Its new MLC NAND boasts impressive power and write specifications. This SSD is geared for the budget market, but will it be able to compete with low-cost TLC alternatives?

G-Technology G-DRIVE 4TB Professional High Performance External HDD Review
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I think we can all agree to the fact that storage capacity needs increase every day especially as long as people get faster internet connections allowing them to download huge chunks of data from the Internet in surprisingly small periods of time. Luckily all the leading HDD manufacturers have released several 4TB hard disk drive models during the last year including mainstream models targeted towards casual users and gamers, high end models aimed at enthusiasts and of course enterprise class models for professionals. Unfortunately although we have that variety in standalone internal hard disk drives the same doesnt apply in external hard disk drives since for that purpose most manufacturers choose to use their mainstream models to keep the cost down. G-Technology by HGST (Former Hitachi GST) is amongst the very few companies that not only uses the high end and enterprise class models HGST has to offer but they also use some of the highest quality and performance external HDD enclosures we`ve seen to date and the latest USB 3.0 compatible version of the G-DRIVE is no exception."

The AZZA Silentium 920 is an affordable mid-tower case that features an interior lined with noise dampening material to reduce the noise levels of your PC components as much as possible during operation. Keeping your PC quiet is only one part of a successful setup; we review the AZZA offering to see just how cool it can keep your components as well.

Why Michael Dell Made His Bold Move
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:00A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell's decision to go private (and Microsoft's $2B investment) are big news in the tech world today, but there's precious little in the way of hard evidence for why Michael Dell decided to buy back the company he founded as a college student back in 1984. The Microsoft angle has gotten a lot of press, but it's not the primary driver of the deal. Michael Dell clearly has some ideas about how he wants to refocus the company; Dell signed off on $5B in acquisitions in the past 12 months, and $13B in the past few years. All the major acquisitions have been enterprise companies; he's clearly preparing the company to take on HP and IBM in lucrative segments of their own markets. While it may not have the same requirements to shareholders now, Dell still needs to explain how it plans to reinvigorate its brands, leverage its new partnership with Microsoft, and invest in businesses...

ASUS VivoBook X202E 11.6-inch Notebook Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 1:45A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It might not be an Ultrabook, but for what ASUS VivoBook X202E offers, that might not matter. Instead of focusing on performance, ASUS has concentrated on the feature-set, overall design and the aesthetics. Then it piled on a touchscreen for good measure. Sounds good for a $500 notebook, so its time to see if it impresses."
