ViewSonic V3D231 3D-Ready 23-inch LCD Monitor Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Jan 02 2012 | 9:04P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?It seems like all year we have been hearing about 3D technology, from displays to movies and even games. 3D technology, while cool does not really have that huge wow factor for me. With that said I am very excited to check out the first 3D display here at ThinkComputers the V3D231 23-inch LCD from ViewSonic. This display is compatible with all of your 3D devices, has a very fast 2ms response time for gaming and has a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080. Read on and see if this monitor is perfect for your 3D setup."

Kingston HyperX Genesis 16GB DDR3-1600 @ Benchmark Reviews
     Mon, Jan 02 2012 | 9:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the introduction of Intel`s X79 Express chipset, enthusiasts must now consider quad-channel memory kits, and vendors like Kingston are rushing to assert themselves in this new market. This 1600MHz, 16GB kit runs fairly relaxed timings of 9-9-9-27 and at under $100 represents the lower end of Kingston`s HyperX line of enthusiast memory. Benchmark Reviews tests it against lower-latency 1600MHz kits as well as Kingston`s own ultra-high performance 2133MHz kit in this review."

ASUS K53T Review: Mainstream Llano Offers Inexpensive Mobile Gaming
     Mon, Jan 02 2012 | 9:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Price is an important part of this story. Available for $629.99, the K53T we reviewed (or, at least, the closest retail-available variant) is not an expensive piece of kit considering the level of performance available. Though the Core i5 does handily defeat the AMD A6 processor when it comes to processor performance, the Radeon 66720G is a capable combination of IGP and discrete graphics that provides the performance needed to play even the most demanding games at adequate detail settings. That?s something I can rarely say about any laptop priced under $1000."

     Mon, Jan 02 2012 | 1:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Much like the netbook market, tablets have come of age and everyone seems to want one. Also similar to netbooks it seems that the market is saturated by tablets from many different manufacturers. Asus can be credited for making the netbook market a reality and for offering some of the finest netbooks made. Today we take a look at the Asus Transformer tablet to see if Asus has kept the tradition of offering an excellent product in the tablet market."

Corsair Force GT & Performance Pro SATA III SSD Roundup @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Jan 02 2012 | 1:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So, what have we learned from this little round up? First off, you can`t go wrong with any of the drives here. All feature very fast SATA III performance and come with a standard three year warranty. The Force GT drives promise read and write specifications of up to 555MB/s reads and 525MB/s writes. This is something we observed on the ATTO benchmark where highly compressible data was used. On other benchmarks, the scores were a fair bit lower as the SandForce controllers rely on real time compression of data to optimize performance and the referenced benchmarks used already compressed data. The 240GB fared a little better than the 180GB drive as higher density NAND tends to be a little faster along with slightly different architecture..."

Corsair Vengeance 1300 Analog Gaming Headset
     Mon, Jan 02 2012 | 1:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If it wasn`t for the severe lack of bass, then these headphones would be at the top of my list for their price range. While the comfort and build quality are definitely there, the audio performance averages out to just decent. The clarity of the range of sound that the Vengeance 1300 is capable of producing is without a question very good; if gaming is your only concern then this $80 headset just might fit your bill."

In Win BUC 101 Case Review @ Hardware Secrets

Posted by: STAFF
In Win has just released a new version of their BUC mid-tower case, dubbed BUC 101. (By the way, the correct pronunciation is buck, not bee-you-see ? which would be kind of funny.) This new case comes with several unique features. Let`s take a look at them."

MSI Z68A-GD80 G3 Z68 Motherboard Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Jan 02 2012 | 1:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI has been fighting an uphill battle against the likes of Gigabyte and ASUS for the last few years but their new Z68A-GD80 G3 looks to even the playing field. It features a long 5 year warranty, PCI-E 3.0 slots, user friendly auto overclocking options, a great layout and an intuitive BIOS which in many ways surpasses the competition`s offerings. But can MSI complete this near-perfect equation with stability? We find out in this review."

RunCore Pro V 120GB SATA III Solid State Drive Review
     Mon, Jan 02 2012 | 1:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`re not looking at a product for aviation or gunships, but the build quality of the RunCore Pro V SATA III looks the part. The Pro V SATA III is controlled by a SandForce SF-2281 controller and uses asynchronous flash for data storage. In an era when other companies have moved to plastic housings, RunCore has kept an aluminum drive case for robust construction and added visual appeal in systems with windows or displayed drive bays. Even now, almost a year since the SF-2281 was released, it`s still the fastest solid state drive controller on the consumer market. There are many of these drives on the market, some with and some without synchronous flash. Unfortunately RunCore chose to use asynchronous flash with their Pro V 2.5 SATA III SSD, a move that we don`t really agree with since RunCore doesn`t offer a synchronous flash drive in their consumer lineup."

TechREACTIOn Review: Cooler Master Storm Trooper
     Mon, Jan 02 2012 | 1:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the first glance of this beast, it may take a little bit to soak it all in, as there are a lot of options which greet you. The front panel bays are covered in honeycomb mesh with filters installed behind them. At the top of the front panel is the X-Dock SSD hot-swap bay, and the bottom contains a hidden tool kit for the installation. The side panel will give you the option of installing two 120mm intake fans to help with the overall cooling of the system."

Verbatim Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Keyboard @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Jan 02 2012 | 1:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ok, first review of the New Year and it?s a keyboard. It?s not just any keyboard though, it?s the Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Mobile keyboard from Verbatim. This keyboard is very thin and portable and it features the standard keys along with many special function keys as well. It can be used with Apple devices and many Android ones and any other Bluetooth device that supports HID profiles. This little keyboard is great for those that aren?t yet quite accustomed to typing on a touchscreen and/or prefer typing on a real keyboard. "

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.
