Far Cry 3 Review: Welcome to the Jungle! @ Techgage
     Thu, Jan 03 2013 | 11:55A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Far Cry first brought us to its shores in 2004, PC gamers were given a real treat: open-ended gameplay and a highly-detailed world. Far Cry 2 brought us an even bigger world, but never hit cruising speed with most people. Does Far Cry 3 have what it takes to return us to paradise, or should it have remained at sea?"

RHA CA-200 Headphones Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Jan 03 2013 | 9:47A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The RHA CA200 is a lightweight, circum-aural headphone that is perfect for audio enjoyment while on the move or at home. The RHA CA-200 is available in high-gloss black or white finishes and carries an MSRP of $30 USD. For a comfortable fit, RHA has designed the CA-200 to utilize a ball and socket mechanism paired with noise isolating, soft ear pads to accommodate heads of various shapes and sizes. To reproduce high quality audio, the CA200 headphone uses 40mm mylar drivers, neodymium magnets as well as copper-clad aluminum wire voice coils, exposing the listener to a frequency range of 20-20,000Hz and a sensitivity of 113dB. To add to the portable convenience, the CA200 comes with a 1.2m detachable braided Y-cable designed with anti-fraying protection to prevent any damage from unnecessary tugs and pulls, ultimately prolonging the lifespan of the CA200 on top of the 3-year warranty.///"

ZTE Grand X Intel arrives to Android
     Thu, Jan 03 2013 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At first, second and third glance, ZTE’s latest flagship model, Grand X In, looks identical to the Grand X we tested a few months ago. With minimal external differences, the large Intel logo on the back is the only thing that “jumps” at you. Since this is the first smartphone based on Intel’s (x86) platform that we’ve tested, many questions have arisen. Will there be limitations as far as application installation, compatibility etc. are concerned? How about unexpected bugs or issues? What to expect in terms of performance and battery autonomy? And heating?

Thermaltake Level 10 Gaming Mouse Review
     Thu, Jan 03 2013 | 9:01A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Admittedly we have seen some pretty cheesy mice attempting to bring the sports car look to a functional mouse so it was refreshing to see the folks at BMW take this seriously. The Level 10 M simply looks stunning.

Thermaltake eSPORTS Level 10M Gaming Mouse Review @ Custom PC Review
     Thu, Jan 03 2013 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That said then, today we’ll be reviewing the new Thermaltake eSPORTS Level 10M gaming mouse. Since the Level 10M is designed in part by one of the most well known high performance auto manufacturers in the world, it’s only natural that it’s got that high performance car look, but just as an amazing car, the Level 10M’s got some serious stuff under the hood, too.

HP Spectre One Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Jan 03 2013 | 5:47A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Spectre One is an eye-catching 23-inch Windows 8 desktop PC that has a very iMac-like design. It has an Intel i5, 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive, so it`s definitely got enough power for anyone. Surprisingly it lacks a touch screen, which is really the only thing holding back this PC."

     Wed, Jan 02 2013 | 11:45P | Networking | PermaLink

WD Black 4TB Hard Drive Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Jan 02 2013 | 3:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
WDs Black 4TB is the sort of product that doesnt need much of an introduction it speaks for itself. Were dealing with a standard-sized desktop hard drive that sports a market-leading 4TB of storage. Thats 4,000GB, for those not paying enough attention. Its impressive on paper, so lets see how it fares in our benchmarks."

Asus G75VW-DH72 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Jan 02 2013 | 1:34P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus G75VW-DH72 gaming laptop may offer pricing and performance well below wha othert tricked out systems can offer, but when stacked against mid-range gaming systems like the Alienware M17x R4, it still holds its own, getting you on the gaming grid for under two grand."

Waterfield Designs Muzetto Leather Notebook Satchel Review
     Wed, Jan 02 2013 | 1:24P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Waterfield Designs' leather Muzetto satchel is the ideal conveyance for the essentials of business - a notebook and/or iPad, some papers, pens, a smart phone, business cards, c'est tout. If you need sheer haulage, there are other bags in the Waterfield stables like the ubiquitous 'Cargo' for that. The Muzetto is substantial, but it is a compact. Behind the large oiled leather flap of the Waterfield Designs Muzetto bag we find one main pocket flanked by three large but slim secondary pockets. The main pouch will comfortably carry an 11" notebook in a sleeve while an outer padded pocket can accommodate an iPad. A manilla envelope full of papers or a magazine easily slips into the rear pouch. Pens and other small items can be tucked safely away in the inner, zippered pocket. If the outer padded pocket isn't pulling iPad duty, there's a small pocket in there just the right size to hold a smart phone.

Crucial M4 256GB SATA III SSD Review
     Wed, Jan 02 2013 | 1:21P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial's M4 solid state drive supports RAID, SMART, NCQ, TRIM, self monitoring and self analysis. Average access times are less than 0.1ms. Peak power consumption is 0.15W, idle is a scant 65mW so this puppy can certainly help extend the battery life of any notebook by replacing a spindle'd hard drive. The 1.2 million hours MTBF rating on Crucial's M4 SSD is slightly lower than other solid state drives PCSTATS recently tested, most of which have averaged 2M hours. It's backed by a 3 year limited warranty. Crucial's 2.5" M4 256GB SSD (CT256M4SSD2) retails for around $210 USD/CDN at Crucial.com, or about $0.82/GB. The M4 SSD family includes models ranging from 120GB all the way up to 480GB capacity. The Crucial M4 is priced per gigabyte between the 240GB SanDisk Extreme which runs about $0.91/GB and the 240GB OCZ Vertex 3 which is pegged at $0.78/GB.
