GIGABYTE GTX 650Ti OC Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Oct 22 2012 | 9:29A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As an entry level GPU, the GTX650Ti is a card which needs to strike a fine balancing act between price and performance. Too much and people will inevitably spend their money elsewhere. If too many cuts have been made then performance may suffer. In some ways, an entry level card is presents more of a quandary to the manufacturers than a flagship `cost no objective` graphics card. Add to this the fact that many budget gamers looking to break into the DirectX 11 gaming arena will not have huge enclosures nor massive power supplies and the headache soon turns into a migraine. So the question has to be asked: Have GIGABYTE managed to create a balanced card? Is this the entry level card you should go for?"

Icy Dock Hard Drive Bays (2-bay 4-bay and 2-bay + Optical) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com

Posted by: STAFF
Icy Dock Hard Drive Bays (2-bay, 4-bay and 2-bay + Optical) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Almost all of us have spare drive bays on the front of our PCs and a fair number of us have either got spare parts kicking about or have run out of space inside our system for hard drives. Icy dock are looking to solve several problems such as these with their drive racks/cages which are designed to add storage space to our otherwise empty front of case bays. Today we have three different models on our test bench to see how they perform."

Nikon D700 FX 12.1MP Digital SLR Camera Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Mon, Oct 22 2012 | 9:25A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Nikon D700 is a professional-grade FX (full-frame) format DSLR with 12.1-megapixel at hand, and is completely different than anything I`ve reviewed up to this point. The MSRP for a Nikon D700 body is $2699.95USD or $2499.95CAD. The D700 positions itself above the Nikon D300S in the product lineup and could be seen as the entry-level model in the FX format lineup, however, I doubt there`s nothing entry-level about it."

Hades Acheron A3 Gaming Mousepad - BCCHardware
     Mon, Oct 22 2012 | 9:05A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I spend a lot of time on the computer surfing around and gaming. So, naturally I have drinks on my desk. I think you know where this going...I decided to pour some water in the center of the pad to see how long it would take to soak in. After 20 minutes I gave up because the water did not soak in at all. It just floated on top and wiped off completely dry. . ."

REVIEW: PowerColor Devil 13 HD 7990 @ PureOverclock
     Sun, Oct 21 2012 | 3:53P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?While it?s no secret that AMD doesn?t officially have a dual-GPU card in its lineup, PowerColor has bucked the trend and blazed a new trail here with their own design for the 7990. This Limited Edition Devil 13 certainly looks monstrous, and it?s got an accessory package second to none, but it also comes with a stratospheric price tag of about $1000 that will target all but the most diehard and well-heeled. Let?s dive in and take a closer look at the PowerColor Devil 13 HD 7990 and see how it fares against Nvidia?s dual GPU offering.?"

Rosewill RHTS-12002 DJ Headphone Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Oct 21 2012 | 1:51P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Rosewill RHTS-12002 DJ Headphones address the needs of the DJ as well as the casual listener. The Rosewill RHTS-12002 DJ Headphones address the basic needs of volume, isolation and one ear flexibility. The Rosewill RHTS-12002 are closed ear headphones, which means that the padded cup around the ear is made to block out exterior sounds. This is of high importance as a DJ will need to hear one song that is cueing while another is playing in the open. Isolation and good volume are especially important for this. Naturally, the padded cup also adds to comfort for periods of long wear, and Rosewill adds floating earpieces, adjustable headband and padding to further the comfort level. The right ear cup is able to swing away for one ear listening in order to sync tracks. An 8` long cord with 3.5mm connector (1/4 adapter included) allows for mobility while wearing. While DJ headphones don`t necessarily require it, Rosewill adds 20-20K response for increased accuracy.///"
