Cooler Master Storm Xornet Optical Mouse Review @ APH
     Mon, Jan 09 2012 | 10:31A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is the time of year where everybody is in a buying frenzy at the malls, attempting to find a secret pathway through overflowing parking lots. Now, I`m quite certain many people have been having larger than necessary meals, and are probably looking towards some downtime. For many of us, that will involve a computer somewhere along these lines, and in today`s world, you will probably be using a computer mouse. During the relaxing holiday period around Christmas, my mouse of choice was the Cooler Master Storm Xornet. While many people would consider the performance or the number of buttons on a mouse essential, I would consider comfort the most important aspect to any peripheral. It could just be me, but a mouse which happens to lack in comfort usually ends up going out the window after a few hours of regular usage. Having all of my jobs involving computers, an excellent mouse that is comfortable to use is an absolute requirement. Anyone using a computer for extended periods of time would easily object to being forced to work with a lousy mouse. The real question is if your mouse is really keeping up with today`s newest hardware. So while you are contemplating what you want to get during the boxing week sales, let`s take a look at a mouse I am thoroughly enjoying right now -- the Cooler Master Storm Xornet."

SilverStone Grandia DG06 HTPC Chassis Review @MissingRemote
     Mon, Jan 09 2012 | 10:26A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone Technology was founded in 2003 and has been building cases specifically for the home theater PC (HTPC) market since almost the very beginning. Today, Silverstone produces HTPC cases across four different lines, including the ?mainstream? Grandia line. I recently had the opportunity to spend some time with the most recent addition to the Grandia lineup, the GD06. With room for a micro-atx motherboard, a full-size graphics card, and up to 5 hard drives, the Grandia GD06 is intended to be flexible enough to house a standard HTPC, a gaming PC, or even a media server. *"

PowerColor JustSling @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Jan 09 2012 | 10:19A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With more and more possibilities to store and playback media to and from different devices the limiting factor tends to be how you can lay down a cable to connect these. PowerColor aims to break that bond with their JustSling, a WHDI solution allowing for wireless, 1080p HDMI to be beamed to your TV without the need of any cables. We take the JustSling for a spin to see if it can sling all our favorite media from end end of the home to the other successfully or if it falls short."

Intels Medfield Still A Botched Binary Mess Under Linux?
     Mon, Jan 09 2012 | 9:57A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the next-generation Ivy Bridge hardware may not be shown off this week at CES2012 (in public that is, in private that`s a different story), what Intel and their partners will be promoting heavily this week in Las Vegas is their Medfield platform. But how well supported under Linux is this next-generation Intel mobile platform? Are there going to be more binary blobs coming out for Linux?"

Cooler Master Cosmos II Full-Tower Chassis Review @ Techgage
     Mon, Jan 09 2012 | 9:36A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Huge, feature-rich cases are nothing new, but the Cosmos II from Cooler Master becomes one of the best - if not the best. The company touts it as being an ultra tower, and after shoving lots of high-end hardware into one, we`d have to agree. But despite its mega-size and plethora of features, is it worth $349?"

AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB Reference Video Card Review
     Mon, Jan 09 2012 | 9:21A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It unusual for us to miss an NDA, especially when we`ve got the sample on hand. The simple fact is that AMD chose to Grinch out on us and ignore the holiday spirit, a time when we tend to be able to relax for a few weeks before the CES run of products start to show up. With not only a 10 day holiday planned, but a decision to move from Perth, Australia to Taiwan just three months ago all in the works, the HD 7970 NDA was just one that wasn`t going to be met, even though, our sample was sitting safely in Taiwan waiting for my arrival. With a couple of samples built up over the last few weeks, the HD 7970 was straight on top and today we`ll be finally checking out what the new model is all about. Unfortunately it wasn`t just a matter of testing the HD 7970 and we could get on our way, along with that we tested a couple of other cards with the most recent drivers to see just what`s going on with this new single GPU card from AMD."

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.
