Logitech Zone Touch T400 Wireless Mouse for Windows 8 Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Nov 12 2012 | 8:52A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After using the Logitech Zone Touch T400 wireless mouse on the Asus Zenbook Prime with Windows 8 we found that it was easy to get used to and did help with Windows 8 navigation. The thought of not having a physical scroll wheel may be daunting to some, but we quickly adapted to how the touch zone scrolling works. The Logitech SetPoint software is key to making this work and feel right to users and Logitech has done a great job..."

SSD NEWS: Kingston Data Traveler Workspace Windows To Go Flash Drive Review
     Sun, Nov 11 2012 | 10:41P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston DT Workspace USB 3.0 Flash Drive is a `LSI SandForce Driven` SSD that can start it`s own OS on any computer, compliments of the new Microsoft Windows 8 Enterprise Windows to Go (WTG) environment. As of today, technology has taken us to a place where it simply isn`t necessary to be stuck to a single system, or lug around a laptop any longer. WTG allows your system, on USB, to go where you go and start from just about any computer. Our review today is going to provide a bit of a background of Windows 8 Enterprise Windows To Go and, more importantly, we hope to provide a glimpse of the Kingston Data Traveler Workspace Flash Drive that even Kingston would never have expected, not to mention some great benchmarks."

     Sun, Nov 11 2012 | 1:51P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The original Torchlight took many ARPG veterans by surprise with its art style, storytelling, loot system and much more. However, it lacked multiplayer and had many wanting more than just a single player experience. Torchlight II brings multiplayer and a wealth of other changes to the franchise; do these changes herald a new king of ARPGs?"

Zowie Ec2 gaming mouse @ Rbmods
     Sun, Nov 11 2012 | 12:23P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once again we take a look at a gaming mouse, we received Zowies latest mouse that they named Ec2. Zowie is well known for their keyboards so I have high expectations for this gaming mouse also. With features like a 1,5mm lift off distance, easy DPI adjustment and 1000Hz report rate this mouse should be quite decent so lets take a look at it.

Kingston 64GB microSDXC Class 10 Flash Card Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, Nov 11 2012 | 11:23A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today Ive got another microSD card, well actually its technically a microSDXC card. The card is the newest 64gb from Kingston which is a class 10 card offering minimum speeds of 10 mb/s, which should be fine for any HD recording that you might need or want to do. Ive put it up for comparison against several other microSD cards Ive got on hand and this new card from Kingston performs well overall. Its not the fastest of the bunch, but it sure is the biggest, so if you need storage space, then Kingston has got you covered. "

     Sun, Nov 11 2012 | 11:23A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mad Catz has always taken wild swings at design and innovation. Their latest introduction, the Mad Catz STRIKE 7 gaming keyboard, is among the most luxurious and expensive keyboards on the market. With 7 detachable and modular pieces, 1 TFT-LCD touch screen, 12 programmable macro keys, 12 touch screen macros, and 3 instant toggle profiles, the raw capability of this keyboard can put any keyboard to shame. Benchmark Reviews will take apart the STRIKE 7 and see if it really is the king of the crop."
