Cygnett Form Frost & TubeMap Samsung Galaxy S III Case Reviews @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Aug 29 2012 | 9:14A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Of the three Cygnett cases that we have had the opportunity to use, we liked the Frost the best. The TubeMap is great if you are going to London and the Form is for the high-gloss finish fans, but the Frost was found to be the best for overall use. We love the semi-transparent look and the case did not show smudges and was scratch-resistant. For just $19.99 the Frost is also affordable and it comes backed with a two year warranty..."

Vantec NexStar HX NST-330SU3 Hard Drive to USB 3.0 / eSATA II External Case
     Tue, Aug 28 2012 | 4:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"The Vantec NexStar HX NST-330SU3 is an economical external hard drive enclosure for 3.5" SATA II drives that permits extra storage space to be easily added to any desktop computer via USB 3.0 or eSATA cable. The Vantec NexStar features a small 80mm fan to help keep the HDD from overheating over prolonged hours of use - a problem with always on external drives which forget to spin down the disk during idle periods."

Crucial v4 SSD review: very cheap 128 / 256GB SSDs, very low
     Tue, Aug 28 2012 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Crucial v4s are pretty much the cheapest SSDs you can currently find, so it's not fair to expect the best performance. That said, the v4s are a lot slower than all other current SSDs, even the already slow OCZ Petrols. You get what you pay for, and in this case it's not a whole lot. It's almost an inevitable result of the price war that's been going on in the world of SSDs. There are better options out there for affordable SSDs.

HotHardware's 2012 Back To School Shopping Guide
     Tue, Aug 28 2012 | 12:02P | Tips | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's back-to-school season again, and whether you've started classes recently or are awaiting (dreading?) that first 8AM lecture, there may be a few bits of techno-shopping that need to be taken care of before you can be on your way to that straight-A report card. Whether you're about to begin the fall semester of college or your senior year in high school (or something else entirely), you'll probably need the right hardware to get you through. In the pages to come, we're taking a look at today's latest and greatest when it comes to systems, hardware and peripherals that could prove useful for any dutiful student. Handling 21 hours of classes while still maintaining some sort of social life (which can mean posting daily on Twitter or Facebook) is hard work, and it's even harder if you're still relying on that old Pentium-based notebook and a Moto RAZR...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook Review:
     Tue, Aug 28 2012 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ultrabooks continue to be the hot trend in the Windows notebook arena. With the recent introduction of Intel's new, low power 3rd generation Ivy Bridge Core series processors, designs are becoming thinner with every iteration, while paradoxically it seems, performance continues to scale higher. We've seen Ultrabook machines from virtually all the majors here at HotHardware and many of them are targeted at consumers on the go where thin is in, and not so much the business user, where practical usability, durability and performance are critical.

Lenovo however, is stepping outside the box with the latest addition to their ThinkPad lineup for road warriors and cubical commandos alike. The venerable Lenovo ThinkPad, with its little red TrackPoint nub has gone the way of the Ultrabook and we like it very much...

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti
     Tue, Aug 28 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whereas we had previously crowned the GeForce GTX 670 the best value high performance graphics card money could buy, the GTX 660 Ti goes a step further in the price vs. performance rating. Based on current estimates we believe by the time you read this the Gigabyte GTX 660 Ti will be hitting shelves for around $300, making it roughly 33% cheaper than the GTX 670. This is amazing news for gamers as the GTX 660 Ti was only 13% slower on average than the GTX 670 in 16 games that we tested.

MSI GTX680 OC Twin Frozr III Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Aug 28 2012 | 10:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX680 has been around for a while now and retains the GPU performance crown. While the GPU has not been accused of being hot, the reference design cooler inherits the noise of previous generations. So then, MSI have seen fit to strip the GPU back to the bare essentials and instead cool it with their very popular Twin Frozr cooler. The Twin Frozr design is now in it`s third generation (fourth if you include the extreme versions) and as such, MSI have tweaked it here and there to what we have today, the Twin Frozr three. We`ve seen this cooler on other graphics cards and have been impressed both by its cooling ability and its acoustics so to include it on the best performing GPU today should make perfect sense."

Acer Aspire TimelineX 4830TG-6808 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Aug 28 2012 | 9:32A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4830TG-6808 is one of the more recent models in the TimelineX fold, a mainstay of the mainstream laptop aisle recognizable by its cobalt blue color and distinguished with some of the best battery life of any laptop line. If the 14-inch AS4830TG-6808 doesn`t have the ultrathin design that is so in vogue right now, it still delivers decent performance and a solid user experience without breaking the bank."

Kingston HyperX Predator 8GB 2666MHz DDR3 Memory Kit Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Aug 28 2012 | 9:20A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the end of the day Kingston Technology has updated their flagship memory line with a new heat spreader that greatly changes the appearance of HyperX product line. The new Predator heat spreader design looks great and we must agree that it does look more aggressive and with the times than the old HyperX T1 heat spreaders that were released back in 2008. The reduction in overall height was also a nice touch and something that was desperately needed..."

SanDisk Extreme SSD 240 GB Review
     Mon, Aug 27 2012 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SanDisk Extreme SSD uses SF-2281 controller and 24 nm flash memory made by SanDisk. We have never a seen a combination like that before, so it is particularly interesting to check it out and see if contemporary Toggle Mode NAND will be able to breathe new life into the second-generation SandForce based platform.

Fast and Quiet: Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 670 HerculeZ 3000 Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Aug 27 2012 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new product from Inno3D Company impressed us not that much with its performance or overclocking potential, but with its unprecedentedly low noise. Actually, it would be more correct to say the absence of noise. Read our review to find out how they managed to accomplish that. http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/graphics/display/inno3d-ichill-geforce-gtx-670-herculez-3000.html

NVIDIA TXAA Brings Movie CGI Rendering To PC Games
     Mon, Aug 27 2012 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA's new Kepler GPU packs a number of efficiency and performance improvements, but one of its major features has been locked away until now. When the company launched their new GPU core earlier this year, NVIDIA debuted a new type of anti-aliasing it dubbed TXAA. Unlike other types of AA, which can often be forced on in the driver and applied to any game, TXAA required specific application support. According to NVIDIA, TXAA uses a contribution of samples both inside and outside of the pixel in conjunction with samples from prior frames, to offer the highest quality filtering possible. Funcom's new MMO, The Secret World, was patched last week to add TXAA and we took the game out for a spin to see what it looks like.

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.
