MSI GT70-2OD review: The ultimate gaming laptop?
     Fri, Oct 18 2013 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI GT70-2OD is a beautiful gaming machine with excellent hardware and features that will appeal to the target audience. We were definitely impressed. The powerful GeForce GTX 780M graphics card, combined with an mSATA SSD and a quad-core Haswell Intel Core i7 processor is a recipe for gaming bliss. To top it off, MSI built in quality network hardware from Killer, along with a fast 750 GB hard disk.

Posted by: STAFF
We've got MSI's flagship GeForce GTX 780 LIGHTNING video card to evaluate today. This video card has a new design, comes completely customized from the ground up, and has obtained the highest overclocked we've ever achieved on a GTX 780. We put it up against the GALAXY GTX 780 HOF and the AMD Radeon HD 7990.

Enermax Fulmo GT Full Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Oct 18 2013 | 11:36A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to cases there is only so much you can fit inside and that sort of limits what type of system you can build. Well Enermax wants to break that barrier with their Fulmo GT Full Tower case. This is not just any full tower case, this is one of the biggest cases Ive ever had in to review! The case not only supports ATX and XL-ATX motherboards, but even larger form factors like E-ATX and HPTX! On top of that there is room for 10 hard drives, 4 optical drives and 15 fans! (5 are pre-installed). Not only that there are 10 expansion slots so you could put together one beefy workstation or ultimate gaming machine. Having all of this space is great, but has Enermax put all of the other finishing touches on this case to make it a contender against the likes of NZXT, Cooler Master and Fractal Design? Read on as we take a look"

Samsung 7100-Series 60 Smart 3D HDTV - BCCHardware
     Fri, Oct 18 2013 | 11:20A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the 3D feature doesn`t add a lot of value to me, the remotes do. Also the SmartHub is finally usable as it loads very fast thanks to the dual-core processor. This is a huge bonus and I found myself looking through content on here more than once - which is a lot more often than I used on older TVs that initialized so slowly. Still, it requires a good internet connection to fully enjoy and if you have a bandwidth cap, it will make it that much easier to exceed you cap and push you into the overages territory."

Anidees A14 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Oct 18 2013 | 9:42A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are to look at Anidees first attempt at bringing to market a Micro ATX computer chassis. From the outside, A14 looks very similar to its bigger brother, the A16. A brushed aluminium external construction is appealing to the eye and noise damping material should help to keep those noise levels down to a minimum."

Posted by: STAFF

OCZ Vertex 450 256 GB SSD @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 6:21P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Vertex 450 is OCZ`s replacement for their Vertex 4 and uses OCZ`s own in-house Indilinx Barefoot controller. In our testing we see performance that matches the Vertex 4, at a lower price. The included TrueImage HD software makes migration easier than before, especially for less experienced users."

QNAP TS-420 review: 4-bay midrange NAS
     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 4:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the one hand QNAP has made a very versatile NAS device that has tons of software features and lots of connectors. The QTS 4.0 firmware is very comprehensive. The chassis is solid, and the build quality is good. On the other, the hardware inside isn't on the same level.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
