A Futurelooks News Flash - NZXT HALE82 N Series 750 Watt ATX Power Supply Review

Posted by: STAFF
NZXT first launched their HALE series of power supply units (PSU) in support of the 80Plus movement which is all about power efficiency. They original series was constructed with modular cabling, came in white, and used a DC to DC Seasonic internal design.

Naturally, we wanted to know if The NZXT HALE82N 750 Power Supply still provides great performance at a lower cost. Lets find out! *"

NiteCore Smart PD D10sp R2 LED Flashlight Long-Term Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Wed, Aug 08 2012 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in June 2010, I reviewed my first LED flashlight on ModSynergy and the Dorcy flashlight got me hooked on LED flashlights as a hobby. Since then I`ve been intrigued with the world of flashlights. Flashlights have come a long way from incandescent models that are taxing on batteries and not as bright to the new high power LED variants that are much more powerful and also capable of being powered by a single AA battery you can pick up just about anywhere. Flashlights come in a variety of sizes and shapes, but not many of them are practical for every day usage. Today I am reviewing a flashlight that looks to fill in that mould and be a practical flashlight that you can carry and use anywhere. The flashlight falls into the EDC (Every Day Carry) category and we`ll see if the Nitecore D10sp R2 is worth your money."

     Wed, Aug 08 2012 | 3:57P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The market is rife with hardware video transcoders and software that can take advantage of them. However, making sense of that jungle of disparate offerings can be tough. We`ve tried to make sense of it all, comparing the latest transcoding logic from AMD, Nvidia, and Intel in three major video conversion applications."

Sentey Extreme Division GS-6000 II Optimus @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Aug 08 2012 | 3:39P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are familiar with Sentey, you`ll recognize a certain pattern they have when releasing their computer cases. They generally release a style of case and then release a few more with the same style and some minor changes. There will be an R version of the case that has red highlights, a B version with blue, W for white, and so on. In some case series they will also release a V version with a different side panel (usually windowed). In the case of the Optimus series, as well as a couple of other series, Sentey has now released a II version of the case. At Benchmark Reviews, we have a Sentey GS-6000 II Optimus case on hand and ready break down to explore what they`ve changed on this one."

ASUS Nexus 7 review: the first tablet with Jelly Bean
     Wed, Aug 08 2012 | 12:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS and Google have created a tablet that is outstanding in terms of bang for the buck. The tablet is made of high-quality components, even if they're not top-of-the-line, and the number of connectors will probably disappoint some potential buyers. The main selling point is the new operating system, and we were duly impressed by the implementation of Jelly Bean.

Windows 8 GUI Annoyances
     Wed, Aug 08 2012 | 12:02P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you have had the “pleasure” of checking out the consumer release of Windows 8, or the final preview release now that 8 has been shipped to manufacturers before distribution in October, you have experienced the glory of the Metro UI. Not that it's being called that now. Now Windows is calling it Windows 8 Style UI. I wish I were kidding, but that's their temporary name while they come up with something better than Metro. But while they wobble around in Limbo, we'll still call it Metro for this article.

     Wed, Aug 08 2012 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SSDs have gone down in price a lot in recent months. It's now possible to find 64 GB SSDs for less than £50. That means that the cheapest SSDs are now on the same level as the most affordable hard drives, in theory taking away any arguments for not including an SSD in your (new) PC. Hardware.Info took a closer look at 10 small SSDs to find out which is the one to get.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 SOC review
     Wed, Aug 08 2012 | 11:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 SOC. The factory overclocked product has a whopping three slot design and comes packed with five fans blowing air through a huge aluminum fin area that is covered with a metal cover to optimize the overall airflow. An Anti-turbulence cooler features nine 6mm copper heatpipes leading to a massive vapor chamber cooler. Tied to the cooler are industrial quality fans, five of them creating airflow that I know and have seen in servers"

Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte sent me one of their entry-level products to check out, called the B75M-D3H. Yet make no mistake, just because this product is value-oriented, does not mean it by any means cheap! What makes Gigabyte`s B75M-D3H so great? We`ll find out in our review."

Akitio NT2U3 USB 3.0 Dual Bay RAID Enclosure Review
     Wed, Aug 08 2012 | 10:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`re a professional who uses computer systems for work or if you`re just an enthusiast then chances are that you will have at least a couple of hard disk drives laying around which once used to inhabit the inside of your PC case but as expected are long replaced with higher capacity models. This is something Ive seen a lot lately and it seems that most people actually keep these drives stored someplace rather than using them for backup purposes. Still there are always those who are continuously seeking ways to make use of those drives and what better way solution than to mount them on an external USB 3.0 enclosure? Now what`s really nice is that although roughly 4-5 years ago there were only single bay external HDD enclosures in the market (excluding server products) nowadays you can find external enclosures with up to 8 available drive bays. Todays review is about one such product and so on our test bench is the latest dual-bay 3.5 HDD RAID enclosure by Akitio, the NT2U3 (NT2 USB 3.0)."

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.
