Devil May Cry HD Collection (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 10:19A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Devil May Cry HD Collection (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com With the release of DMC: Devil May Cry, a reimagined take on the game universe, fast approaching Capcom are giving those unfamiliar with the series a chance to head back over a decade to the original, then through two sequels. With a HD makeover and bonus content as well as the special edition of DMC3: Dante`s Awakening all on one disc, at a value price, this might just be the release to whittle away those Easter holiday hours."

Lucid Virtu MVP (HyperFormance) Tested with ASRock Z77 and Intel Ivy Bridge
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 9:48A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We first got the chance to check out the latest in Lucid technology a couple of weeks back at a motherboard manufacturers HQ. For a lot of us Lucid is a bit of a dirty word that reminds us of this almost useless kind of technology that let us combine NVIDIA and AMD video cards together for added performance. It never really kicked off for the most part and we haven`t heard heaps about them for a little bit. Lucid Virtu MVP, though, is the latest technology from the company and it`s something we`re starting to see motherboard manufacturers promote. Today we`re going to check out what it`s about while also see what it does on the performance side of things."

Kingston Wi-Drive @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 9:46A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I remember, early last year, thinking to myself; Self, it would be totally awesome if they made an external hard drive that was battery operated and could connect to a WiFi network. No more USB cables! Well, that time has arrived with several new products that have recently hit the market. Today, I would like to take a look at the Kingston Wi-Drive 16GB unit and see how it works, and more importantly, is it worth the money."

Kingston Factory Tour - Making of an SSD from Start to Finish
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 9:45A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We were picked up from the Hsin Chu high speed rail station by our friendly marketing contact at Kingston who drove us directly to Kingston`s ten SMT-line ready Taiwan factory, which is about 15 minutes from our entry point back to Taipei. We were told that this factory only (we laughed when Kingston said its Taiwan facility is a small operation) has 600 employees. With the introduction set, it brings us to the reason for this article and that is our factory tour. We were exclusively invited into the Kingston factory where few media have been and got shown the process of making an SSD from start to finish. Due to media restrictions, we were not allowed to produce a video of the tour, but we were allowed to take photos. Obviously Kingston is a market leader in memory and SSD products and there is plenty of sensitive machinery and such - and we needed to respect that and their rules."

iPad 3 (2012) vs. Transformer Prime: Tablet Titan Showdown
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 9:43A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a price penalty that you pay for the new iPad?s advantages. You can purchase a 32GB Prime for the price of a 16GB iPad. That difference is worth consideration, but in my opinion the gap in price does not compensate for the Prime?s disadvantages. Not everyone will agree, and you will need to give a bit of thought to your own usage. Anyone who has a lot of media they might wish to store on their tablet may prefer the Prime`s more affordable storage, though in my opinion the availability of cloud storage reduces any advantage provided by additional long-term memory."

Install Windows 8 From a USB Flash Drive @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 9:40A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Windows 8, it seems like we have been hearing a lot about it over the past couple of months. Recently Microsoft has released the consumer preview, which is free to download so you can try out the new operating system before it ships. If you have ever installed any Windows operating system from a CD or DVD you know it can be very time consuming. Why not speed up the process by installing the operating system using a USB flash drive. In this article we will show you how to take the Window 8 ISO and put it on a flash drive for fast and easy installation."

Corsair Vengeance M90 and K90 Review
     Sun, Apr 08 2012 | 10:26A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In conclusion the M90 is a pretty nice mouse; however, it didn`t win me over the M60 Corsair released just before it. To be honest I will probably pass this off to one of my MMO-playing friends who might be able to get some better use out of it. Unfortunately, it wasn`t just the extra buttons that made me not want to keep it around it was the slightly awkward placement of the programmable buttons as well as the default forward and back buttons that made it just a bit awkward for me to use. The mouse itself worked well, and trust me, it was nice being able to set extra mouse functions here and there - it just wasn`t comfortable for my little hand. I`d still recommend the mouse, but I still prefer the M60 over the M90 hands down."

SilverStone GD06 Home Theater PC Case
     Sun, Apr 08 2012 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Computing on Demand has posted a new article, 'Review: SilverStone GD06 Home Theater PC Case' There is no doubt that the HTPC enthusiast has some options when looking for a chassis to fill the void in their entertainment center. It seems like so many of the options are either too small, too big, to ugly, or too expensive. With that in mind, SilverStone has stepped up their game. SilverStone is no slouch when it comes to manufacturing high quality computer components and with the introduction of the GD06, the company is trying to shake up the HTPC chassis market a bit.

MSI Radeon HD 7970 Lightning 3GB Video Card Overclocked Review
     Sun, Apr 08 2012 | 8:09A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lightning series of video cards from MSI are just one of those series that I look forward to probably a little bit more than most other series on the market. MSI are consistent with the series and we have never been disappointed with any model that gets the Lightning treatment. The latest video card to get the Lightning treatment is the AMD Radeon HD 7970 and as always we hope it brings us some serious overclocking potential like previous Lightning models have. The HD 7970, though, is a good jumping point for MSI as the model itself has proved to perform quite well when it`s come to overclocking. With the general MSI tweaks, though, we expect some serious clocks."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
