Club3D Radeon HD 7850 Royal Queen review
     Sat, Aug 11 2012 | 9:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Club3D jumped the 7800 bandwagon as well with several models, and for this review we`ll be looking at their Radeon HD 7850 Royal Queen edition which comes with 1 GB of graphics memory. The product comes default in many ways, except the cooler. Club3D uses a small PCB and pretty slim dual-slot cooler making the card very easy to install. The graphics card is equipped with one 6-pin PCIe power connector. As mentioned the card comes default/reference clocked at 860 MHz and the memory is clocked at a 4800 MHz reference as well.

Panasonic TC-L42ET5 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Aug 10 2012 | 3:57P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At $1,099 for the 42-inch Panasonic TC-L42ET5, it`s an affordable HDTV. But its picture quality doesn`t measure up to Vizio`s or LG`s passive 3D screens, and doesn`t come close to matching active 3D HDTVs. Still, the set`s price and feature set helps make up for its picture failings, and if you want an affordable HDTV that does a lot, it`s a solid choice."

But now it is, so join us as we explore the outer levels of benchmarking performance."

Rosewill R5 Mid Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Aug 10 2012 | 11:50A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When building a new system I think one of the hardest things to decide on is your case. It is something you are going to have to look at every day and something you may want to show off at a LAN party. With that said many people do not have the money for a flashy over-the-top computer case. Many people would rather have a functional case than one that looks cool. The Rosewill R5 Mid Tower Case comes in at about $70 and features 3 included fans, fan controller, USB 3.0 support and removable air filters. Is the case for your next build? Read on and find out!"
