Video Perspective: Oculus Rift Development Kit Hands-on Preview
     Fri, May 03 2013 | 7:27P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I will say that the low resolution is definitely a barrier for me. Each eye is only seeing a 640x800 resolution in this version of the kit and that close up you can definitely see each pixel. Even worse, this creates a screen door effect that is basically like looking through a window with a screen installed. It`s not great but you could get used to it if you had to; I am just hoping the higher resolution version of this kit is closer."

Logitech G500s @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, May 03 2013 | 11:55A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to gaming mice, Logitech has been in the market for a very long time. Because of that they have had a long time to tweak and fine tune their design and frankly a lot of people are just used to the shape of their mice. Because of this they are still a major player today, we see a lot of people running everything from their G5, G500, and the MX518 floating around at LANs. What that means is when Logitech introduces a new mouse there are a lot of people whose interest in peaks. Including me, my original G5 still gets put to use at times and when I heard they introduced the G500s I was excited to see what all had changed."

Caselogic SLR Sling Camera Backpack Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, May 03 2013 | 10:26A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you own a Digital SLR camera you know how much it set you back and you want to keep it nice and safe when you are out shooting. Since I bought my first Digital SLR camera I had a backpack to go with it. Camera backpacks provide great protection for not only your camera, but normally they have room for extra lenses and other accessories. I have quite a few different larger backpacks, but if Im just going out quickly I dont want to be hauling a large bag around with me. Ive always been a fan of sling-type Backpacks, and having one that can protect and hold me camera is a plus. Today we are taking a look at Caselogics SLR Sling Camera Backpack. This backpack features a patent pending hammock suspension system that suspends your SLR above the bottom of case, providing superior impact protection. Lets jump right in!"

Spire Power Bank 4000 Battery Charger Review @ Legit Reviews

Posted by: STAFF
I absolutely love the construction of the Spire Power Bank 4000. Its made of a nice quality aluminum, which is painted a grayish black color. The finish seems fairly durable, but really only time will tell how it wears. I put it in my pocket and backpack multiple times over the course of two weeks, and the time that I`ve had the Power Bank, I did not acquire any scratches..."
