Samsung 840 EVO SSD Review
     Sun, Aug 04 2013 | 8:27A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our SSD analysis today is perhaps the most detailed typical SSD report we have published to date, and so it should be. Actually, the word typical doesnt quite fit as the Samsung 840 EVO SSD, that I am now using as my mainstream system drive, is pushing over 1GB/s sequential speeds and an unbelievable 685MB/s low 4K random write performance. If you think this might be magic, you would be right and this magic is within the reach of every Samsung 840 EVO purchase, performance not even closely matched prior to this release."

Genius EasyPen F610E Slim Pen Tablet Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, Aug 04 2013 | 6:19A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today Ive got a graphics tablet, or the Genius EasyPen F610E Slim Pen Tablet which has plenty of features like those youd find in one that costs much more. At the present time this tablet sells for about $85 depending where you look and for that money youre getting a great tablet, one thats well made and is just full of features even the most advanced users can appreciate. The F610E has a resolution of 4,000LPI and features 2048 pressure levels so youll be able to really make some nice and finely detailed drawings, but the tablet itself has a working area of 6.25 x 10 which is pretty big really. The tablet is nicely made and just looks great, its very thin and lightweight and comes bundled with quite a bit of great software. So read on to learn more "

Thermaltake Urban S21 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Aug 04 2013 | 1:45A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake has always been known for their superb case design and quality throughout the years. This time they are back with a Mid Tower offering in the same price range as many leading competitors with the enthusiast additions we have come to expect. Present are the optimized ventilation, cable management and tool-free bays we all love to see delivered in an aesthetically minimalist package. Will the Urban S21 prove to be a hit or end up as just another option? Joins me as we give it the once over and see if the Urban Mid Tower stacks up."

Linux desktop systems can now have working support for Microsoft`s Direct3D 9 API via a new Gallium3D state tracker. Unlike the earlier Direct3D 10/11 state tracker for Gallium3D on Linux, this new code actually can run D3D9 games and at better performance than what`s offered by Wine."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card Review
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 is proof that PC gaming has not died. The GTX 760 is priced at $249.00 and is the newest member of the NVIDIA graphics 700 series DirectX 11 graphics cards. The Geforce GTX 760 has 3 to 4 graphics clusters, 6 SMX processors, 1152 CUDA cores, a base clock of 980 and a GPU boost of 1033. Unlike GPU boost, GPU boost 2.0's thermal thresholds can be manually set to maintain a more constant GPU boost. The GTX 760 contains the GK104 graphics processor, which differs from its predecessor the GTX 660, which contained the GK106 processor. Other differences include a 256-bit memory interface 2GB of GDDR5 memory and TDP of 170W. Could the Geforce GTX 760 be the wolf in sheep's clothing?"

EVGA GTX 760 Superclocked w/ACX @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that we have taken a look at the GTX 760 from Nvidia, which of course means it is time to see what some of the other manufactures have done with their GTX 760 designs. First up is a look at a card from EVGA called the GTX 760 Superclocked w/ACX. Some of you might remember the GTX 770 ACX that we recently took a look at, this is very similar. Hopefully the performance that we saw with the GTX 770 ACX will be similar to the GTX 760 ACX; if that is the case we should be very happy with the card. Of course there is only one way to find out, read on to see.

Team Group Color Turn 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are definitely faster USB 3.0 flash drives on the market, but with a price tag of under $25, the Team Group Color Turn 32GB unit definitely has its appeal. Coming in with about 60MB/s read and 25MB/s write when transferring large files was acceptable to me. Getting the files on there may take longer than I'd like, but accessing them once on the drive is far quicker.

CM Pulse-R Headset Review
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 12:20P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I love that I can unplug the cable when I`m on the go rather than wind it tightly around the cups. I`ve destroyed a few pairs wrapping them up that way, so now it`s just tossed in the bag on its own. This headset will be great when I travel for work again, and the padding really keeps the external noise low. My husband was talking to me and I completely missed the entire conversation with just a little music going in the background. I can`t wait to block out the screaming babies and snoring old men"

ASRock Z87E-ITX Intel Desktop Motherboard Review
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Small form factor PC’s have been gaining a lot of momentum and favor with hardware enthusiasts and hardcore gamers these past couple of years. Since more features are integrated into the CPU in recent releases, it means more real estate has been made on ITX form factor motherboards for extras that may well have not fit previously. With the release of Intel Haswell CPU’s and Z87 chipset, motherboard vendors are now more than ever able to condense the features of a full size ATX motherboard into the ITX form factor without much (if any) sacrifice. See for yourself, take a look at an average Z68 or Z77 ATX motherboard and you will start to notice just how much space isn’t occupied. In this article Benchmark Reviews takes an in-depth look at the ASRock Z87E-ITX motherboard, reporting back on special features and performance as well as giving a visual commentary on the aesthetics of this tiny beast.

Seagate Central 3TB review: User-friendly?
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The concept of the Seagate Central is a good one. The hard disk behemoth wanted to develop a user-friendly NAS device, and to keep things manageable for less experienced end-users it kept features to a minimum. If all you want is to share files and be able to access them online and via mobile apps, then you don't need the vast range of features from a QNAP or Synology NAS device.

Silicon-Power Velox V55 240GB
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall if you are looking at the cheapest possible way to get your hands on an SSD then the Silicon-Power Velox V55 provides a nice option. Performance is strong, although nothing like the top tier models, more like what we saw from the previous generation. Reliability is unknown at this point, though Silicon-Power does offer a 3 year warranty for that piece of mind.

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.
