Ceton Echo Windows Media Extender Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Nov 30 2012 | 11:52A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The form factor has changed significantly as well, to a sleek device around the size of most modern home theater streamers, but the functionality promised (i.e. small, quiet, efficient MCX) when used with WMC has not. This is an important point to note when examining the Echo on its own, because much of the previous coverage also included mention of Cetons Q (a TiVo like device) which, had it survived the summer, could have provided additional capability beyond what is possible from the standard MCX experience. With firmware releases bringing new functionality and fixes every few days it has proved difficult to nail down a definitive snapshot of the Echos long term capabilities; as retail availability is now upon us it is time to build on our first lool."

Intel NUC DC3217BY Review w/ Windows 8 @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Nov 30 2012 | 11:13A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I was able to get the Intel NUC fully assembled and installed Windows 8 in well under 30 minutes. Everything flowed together nicely and this DIY system was easy and fun to put together. The Intel NUC isn`t designed to replace everyone`s desktop PC, but it has enough performance to satisfy the needs of the average PC user. Having an entire PC in a 4 x 4 x 2 cube is pretty darn impressive and it allows you to..."

Genius SP-HF800A 3-Way Wood Speakers Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Nov 30 2012 | 11:10A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On tap we have the SP-HF800A 3-way speaker system. Don`t get this confused with a 2.1 audio system as this set is only two speakers with three drivers in each. Genius is aiming to give the audiophile in you all the frequencies between 80-20k Hz using two 2 woofers and a single 1 tweeter. We will see today if they achieve this with the HF800A."

Palo Alto Cubik 2.0 Speaker Review @ TechwareLabs
     Fri, Nov 30 2012 | 8:37A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this HD world we live in, having the latest and greatest display in which to fully enjoy this media has become the norm. With every release of a new device, it seems the display is the biggest improvement, with higher resolutions and more pixels per inch being the specs that consumers cling to when deciding one versus another. With such an emphasis on visuals, we cant afford to overlook the need for high quality speakers to fully enjoy the experience. There are numerous choices out there, and most are X.1 setups. This is generally some number (i.e. X) of satellite speakers and a subwoofer (aka .1). The traditional 2.0 (no separate subwoofer) market has historically been saturated with cheap speakersunfortunately that hasnt changed much with the emphasis on X.1 setups. So can a 2.0 speaker system cut it in todays market where so much emphasis is being placed on getting the most out of the HD media and high quality audio that is so readily available these days? Palo Alto seems to think so, and with their Cubik speakers they are here to try and dispel multiple myths. Essentially, bigger isnt always better, and more speakers does not mean better sound."

Use PlayStation3 Gamepad with PC Games @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 11:14P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever considered buying a gamepad for racing, sports, or split-screen PC games? Well, there are quite a few options from Microsoft, Logitech, and Saitek including the popular Logitech F710 and Saitek P3600. However, if you don`t fancy the grip of the Xbox controller, don`t agree with the colour scheme of the F710, or are just looking for something different, there is good news! The Sony DUALSHOCK 3 controller (designed for the PS3), with a little work can be made to work on your PC. Certain unique features of the PS3 controller, such as six-axes motion-sensing and pressure sensitive buttons, make it a viable competitor to the more popular options.

HGST Touro Mobile Pro 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 2:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Only 25 or so days before we go dark for our much anticipated Christmas vacations (which shouldn`t last more than 10 days in total) and so we decided to mainly focus on reviews requested by some of you during the last 2 months. Needless to say we are already testing quite a few gaming peripherals for the past 2 weeks so there isn`t really much time for anything else that requires time and effort to test, however since the primary concern of most of you have been 2.5 portable hard disk drives (much easier/faster to test) we gathered quite a few of the latest USB 3.0 models here to see which delivers the most bang for your buck. The first of those portable USB 3.0 HDDs is no other than the latest Touro Mobile Pro 500GB by HGST."
