Vita Trigger Grips Review
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 9:01A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Using the grip does make the Vita more enjoyable overall. The Vita is already bulky, and is barely portable as it is, and this grip makes it even larger so it’s even less pocket friendly.

Review: pivos AIOS HD Media Center
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 9:00A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is no secret that I am an HTPC enthusiast. However, not all applications require the use of a PC to be the main ingredient in a home theater setup. In some cases, as much as I would like to admit otherwise, a media streamer can do the job just as well, if not better. To fulfill this need, a slew of manufacturers, from Logitech, WD, Linksys, etc, have created devices that do just this and adding to this list is Pivos. Pivos, a company that promises to change your mind about quality, functionality, and price. Enter the Pivos AIOS HD Media Center.

A Futurelooks News Flash - ASUS ROG Maximus V GENE Micro-ATX Motherboard Review
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 5:07P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Z77 series of boards comes in three flavors: the Extreme designed for maximum expansion, performance as well as the most extreme overclocking, the Formula best suited for an all round premium gaming experience, Formula-SupremeFX which couples a 300 ohm amplified external audio codec for exemplary audio, and the Gene designed to offer a LAN party size solution of the Formula by scaling back on some of the redundant, unneeded expansion except for NVIDIA SLI/AMD CrossFireX support. *"

Storage Wars: Three Way NAS Box Roundup with Thecus, QNAP and Netgear
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 4:03P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cloud-based storage solutions are all the rage these days, but if you don't want to trust your files to a third-party data center and deal with the risk of hacker attacks and unexpected downtime, maintaining your own centralized storage platform is the way to go. This is where network attached storage (NAS) devices come into play. With hard drive prices as cheap as they are, owning your own NAS box is a totally viable option for wrangling your data, automating backup routines, and serving up files to a growing number of connected devices, including tablets, notebooks, smartphones, game consoles, set-top boxes, and more. Plus, there are no monthly or annual subscription fees to deal with. Convincing yourself you need or could benefit from a NAS box is the easy part. The hard part is in sifting through the seemingly million-and-one options out there and picking the best one for your needs. To help you do that, we reached out to a number of NAS vendors and asked them to send us their recommended NAS device for a 3-5 bay shootout. Three were willing to play ball.

MSI Z77A-G41 LGA 1155 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While it's usually the high end boards that get the most attention, it's often the lower end and mid-range boards that many people purchase. With this in mind we get back to basics with the Z77A-G41 which is an entry level offering from MSI that boasts many enthusiast features.

Posted by: STAFF
Instead of an enthusiast motherboard, this time we will look at a workstation motherboard. Meanwhile it is not a entry level motherboard, Gigabyte provided us with their latest high end dual socket motherboard which is the mainstream model of this new series. It features up to 384 GB of DDR3 ECC memory running at 1600 MHz, two 8 core / 16 threads processor, a high end LSI SAS controller and more. This time we will not only review the motherboard but also benchmark this dual Xeon Octocore setup under real world workloads/situations. Feel the power!

Six GeForce GTX 660 Ti graphics cards: ASUS
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you're looking for a GeForce GTX 660 Ti, you have plenty to choose from. We previously reviewed the graphics cards from ASUS, EVGA and MSI, and now Gigabyte and Zotac sent us their versions as well. On August 16, Nvidia introduced the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, a new type of graphics card based on the same GK104 GPU as the faster GeForce GTX 670 and 680, but more affordable with prices around £250-£270. Initially Nvidia positioned the card against AMD's Radeon HD 7870. After some smart moves on the part of AMD and a higher price for the Nvidia card, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti is now is the direct competitor of the Radeon HD 7950. It's time for a six-card round-up to see which GTX 660 Ti comes out on top.

AviiQ Portable Charging Station Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 3:57P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We travelers carry with us a growing number of devices that charge via USB: phones, tablets, cameras, and more. While devices are solid, easily stored objects, their power cords and wall adapters are nebulous masses of frustration at the bottom of a backpack! The Aviiq Portable Charging Station aims to address this problem by providing a neat carrying case with a removable, four port USB power hub. It provides spools for cables and lays them in such a way that removing them isnt wholly necessary. ThinkComputers has the review."

BenQ GW2250HM, GW2450HM and GW2750HM
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 12:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For these three monitors BenQ has used panels from AU Optronics, which is responsible for the bulk of Vertical Alignment panels out there. They are claimed to be 'true' 8-bit panels, compared to the dithering solution applied to the 6-bit displays of most TN and e-IPS panels. For most uses this difference isn't noticeable, but for colour-critical applications accurate colour rendering is very important.
