Gigabyte G1.Sniper3 Z77 Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few months, we have looked at plenty of Z77 based motherboards here at HH, covering a wide range of price points. But today we dive deep into one of the higher-end models available, the Gigabyte G1.Sniper3. The Gigabyte G1.Sniper3 supports Sandy and Ivy Bridge LGA 1155 processors and features support for up to 32GB of DDR3-2066 (OC) system memory. As a gaming motherboard, Gigabyte saw fit to include support for up to 4-way SLI and CrossFireX (up to PCI-E x8 with four cards and PCI-E x16 with two), Creative Labs audio, and a Killer NIC too...

ASUS P8Z77-V Premium @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 10:29A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the P8Z77-V Premium ASUS has a new flagship motherboard in their portfolio when it comes to their performance products. Malicious tongues would say that the ASUS engineers just took a P8Z77-V Deluxe and added a Thunderbolt interface to it. For us this is reason enough to check if this really was what they`ve done."

Samsung Galaxy S III 16GB Smartphone Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 9:37A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung Galaxy S III looked good on paper and once we got our hands on it in the real world we were by no means disappointed by the smartphone. The Galaxy S III is hands down one of the fastest phones that we have ever used in terms of both the processor performance and the 4G LTE network speeds. We`ve used dozens of Android based smartphones over the past year and none of them gave us the `wow` feeling we got when we started using the Galaxy S III..."

MSI R7770 Power Edition 1Gb @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 9:15A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have taken a look at HD 7770s from both Sapphire and XFX. But that only covers a small portion of the AMD GPU market, when I was given a chance to take a look at MSIs offering, I jumped at the chance. I know what to expect as far as performance, but what I am especially interested in is how MSI does their cards differently. MSI has a unique design that allows you to add a second fan on top of the original fan; I am really curious how this will work out. Lets take a look."

XION XON-980-BK ATX Mid-Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 9:07A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The XION XON-980-BK Mid-Tower fits the needs of a gamer. The XON-980-BK provides a functional and attractive case while maintaining the appropriate price point. XION packed this case with plenty of features, most notably the honeycomb mesh design for maximum airflow. Utilizing the airflow of the case there are two 120mm red LED fans for intake on the front panel and one 120mm fan included. The case includes space for up to seven 120mm fans and supports dual 120mm radiators in the top for water cooling. The two dust filters on the bottom intakes are removable for easy cleaning, all other intake areas have dust filters that are permanent. Included on the top of the case is a four button fan controller that allows you to turn on or off up to four fans. The front I/O panel has all the connectivity that most gamers would desire, including two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and audio jacks."

Corsair Carbide 300R is low in price
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Carbide case we are examining today is the 300R, the little brother of the 500R which was designed to have a smaller footprint while still offering the same level of features. The 300R achieves this by providing ample room for expansion, allowing this otherwise small chassis to accommodate nearly all high-end hardware currently available on the market."

EHS71 Earphones with Mic
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here is a snippet that can be used for the review: "We take a look at Samsung's top-of-the-line EHS71 in-ear headset, which retails at $129.99 and includes an in-line mic for hands-free phone calls. It promises a more refined sound than the EHS63 and EHS70. But the $100 - $200 price bracket is a crowded one for in-ear headphones --- let's give the EHS71 a listen to see how it stacks up."

2big NAS Review
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 9:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let's face it, the world of storage has changed dramatically over the last few years. The increasing size of media has brought new need to the market and those needs are no longer being filled by CD's, DVD's, or external hard drives anymore. The limitations behind such media in a connected world have brought about a storage revolution of sorts. It is now commonplace for consumers to purchase the once business oriented NAS to supply media, data, and perform backups for the various devices we now have in our homes. There is no shortage of choices when trying to find a NAS, but some are better for users and some are better for power users. LaCie thinks they have the perfect NAS for someone that doesn't want to be bothered with tedious configurations and confusing setups. Enter the LaCie 2big NAS, a two bay NAS that promises to deliver on performance without sacrificing simplicity.

Asus USB 3.0 with SCSI Technology
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Asus asked us if we'd be interested in a reviewing their new, high-end USB 3 implementation that offered better performance than anything available elsewhere, we were skeptical. Historically, USB performance has been a function of which controller (Intel, AMD, NEC, Texas Instruments, VIA, etc.) was used. Asus claimed, however, that while you did need certain USB controllers to take maximum advantage of this new implementation, they'd built a solution that could accelerate transfer speeds on any third-party USB 3.0 (and even 2.0) controller. Customers don't need a specific brand of SSD or HD either; drives from any of the major vendors would work...

Apple MacBook Air 13" Mid-2012 Review
     Sat, Jul 21 2012 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Steve Jobs unveiled the first MacBook Air in early 2008 to mixed reviews, but a series of redesigns and hardware refreshes through the years have resulted in a product line that has had a huge impact on the industry. PC makers have struggled to match the Air’s extremely thin and simplistic design, prompting Intel to announce the ultrabook initiative at Computex in 2011. New for the 2012 MacBook Air is the Intel Ivy Bridge processor sporting Intel HD 4000 graphics, higher capacity storage and memory options, as well as an improved 720p Facetime HD camera, and support for USB 3.0. The 13-inch system also received a $100 price cut, now starting at $1,199.

Netgear R6300 802.11ac router review
     Sat, Jul 21 2012 | 12:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Netgear R6300 is the first 802.11ac router we are reviewing. As the first router of a new generation, the Netgear R6300 can definitely be called a success. Granted, 1.3 Gbps is still quite a way away, but there are clear performance gains compared to 802.11n. Speeds of up to 500 Mbps are possible with this router, and also at longer distances the 802.11ac outperforms 802.11n comfortably.

Acer Aspire TimelineU M3: a large Ultrabook
     Sat, Jul 21 2012 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ultrabook is the term for the latest generation laptops using efficient Intel processors. Until now only smaller models were available, equipped with an 11.6-inch, 13-inch or 14-inch screens. Now the first larger Ultrabooks are beginning to emerge, such as the Acer Aspire TimelineU M3 that we are reviewing here. It sounds like the perfect combination, an Ultrabook with a 15.6-inch display. It's light, relatively fast and has a nice, large screen. The Acer Aspire M3 weighs under 2 kg, has a pretty fast SSD, and thanks to the GeForce GT640M you can definitely play video games in 1366x768 resolution. Moreover, the battery life is very good.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 OC
     Sat, Jul 21 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even better news for value-minded enthusiasts is the existence of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 OC, which still retains the alluring $400 price tag while providing better features and performance. Although on average we only saw 5% more performance from the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 OC, that was often enough to put it on par with the more expensive Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition and GeForce GTX 680 graphics cards.

Low-End Laptop Graphics Solution Comparison: Five Options Go Head-To-Head
     Sat, Jul 21 2012 | 11:59A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you want a decent gaming experience you will do yourself a huge favor by considering a low-end discrete solution like the NVIDIA GT 630M. This solution offers a clear advantage over Intel HD 4000 and is also better than Trinity because, besides offering better overall GPU performance, you arent tied down to a lackluster CPU. Three of the five games tested (Dawn of War 2: Retribution, Civilization 5 and Diablo 3) were playable even at 1080p on the GT 630M."

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.
