Tt eSPORTS Level 10M Gaming Mouse Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 9:14A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tt eSPORTs (Thermaltake) collaborated with DesignworksUSA, a subsidiary of BMW Group, to create one of these very products. The idea was to take the standard Gaming Mouse and put a twist on it like youve never seen before. Aesthetically and functionally unique I give the Level 10 M Gaming Mouse. If you arent familiar with work done between Thermaltake and DesignworksUSA you should search the original Level 10 case. Most people are familiar with the Level 10 case that was reviewed here at ThinkComputers but let me tell you the inspiration for that case was quite unique, and so was the cost. DesignworksUSA is a company that specializes in thinking outside of the car realm and applying its design application to products that you wouldnt normally think of. Is the Level 10 M Gaming Mouse of those products that people will revere for more than just its design? Lets take a look!"

Vodafone Mobile Wi-Fi R205 Dongle Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 5:09A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Vodafone Mobile Wi-Fi R205 Dongle Review @ HardwareHeaven.com USB 3G dongles have been around for a while, allowing those of us on the move to connect to mobile networks with our laptops, or acting as a backup to a wired connection at home. This is all very well when there is one PC but what if we have more devices that need access to the connection? For those sort of scenarios Vodafone have the R205 adapter which takes its 3G connection and acts as a mini-router, sharing it with multiple devices via Wi-Fi."

Jesurun Dual-Core Bluetooth Android 4.1 Thumb PC Review @ Madshrimps
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 2:04A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Brando Workshop has now available a dual-core Android mini-PC which connects directly to the HDMI port of our TV and offers decent performances in multimedia applications, but also in games. The product can be powered by the adapter that came with the device, but also from a spare USB port from the back of our TV."

Logitech G700 Wireless Gaming Mouse @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 1:08A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ahh, flagship gaming mice. Nothing says enthusiast more than a top-of-the-line, fully featured, optioned-out model. Although the Logitech G700 Wireless Gaming Mouse has been on the market for awhile, it still resides as Logitech`s top answer to various other hybrid wireless gaming mice (Razer Mamba/Naga Epic, Microsoft Sidewinder X8 - if you can still find one, Gigabyte AIVIA, Cyborg R.A.T. 9...). I`ve always felt that a quality mouse and keyboard will change your computing experience for the better - so does the G700 deliver? Benchmark Reviews will find out for sure..."

REVIEW: BitFenix Ghost Chassis @ PureOverclock
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 12:24A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have the chance to share our experience with BitFenix`s new Ghost Chassis. The BitFenix Ghost is a chassis that was designed to be a silent computing tower but not sacrifice the cooling capabilities of modern systems and accessories. The sleek, smooth and glossy exterior finish has a simple yet elegant design that really stands out from the designs we typically see. While there are few fancy bells and whistles with the exterior aesthetics, the Ghost has features that will surprise even the most avid users today."

ROCCAT Lua Gaming Mouse Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 11:59P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ROCCAT Lua optical gaming mouse is designed with budget gamers in mind. The ROCCAT Lua`s buttons all use high quality Omron switches to ensure durability. It has an ambidextrous V-Shaped mouse that is ideal for palm-grip users, although it could be used with any grip. The R2 Pro Optic sensor provides seven dpi modes, ranging from 250dpi to 2000dpi, that are easily switched, offering an excellent range of speed settings to suit any play style. The scroll wheel has tactile feedback for accurate scrolling and gameplay. The ROCCAT Logo on the mouse is lit by a switchable LED, allowing it to be on, off, or a breathing pattern. The LED setting can be switched using the included driver/software, along with the ability to customize the sensitivity and what each button does."

Samsung Galaxy Note II Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 10:55P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung`s Galaxy Note II melds several great ideas into a single design. A massive 5.5 screen interacts perfectly with a highly responsive stylus and there is processing power aplenty from its quad core processor. This is all wrapped up into a compact design but does the Note II truly represent the next step in mobile evolution?"

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 7:57P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It really seems that no matter how many PC gaming peripherals we get to test in these pages there are always more around and with Christmas just around the corner we don`t have that much left time to publish each and every single one of those reviews, at least not prior to entering 2013. The good thing however when testing gaming peripherals is that you can actually test more than just one at a time (for example a keyboard, a mouse, a mouse pad and a headset) and so with the recent release of several game titles such as Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 3, Planetside 2 and Hitman absolution we had just the right material/tools with which to perform all our tests. So today we will be taking a rather thorough look on the BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Gaming Keyboard by Razer."

ASUS Maximus V Formula Review
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After taking some time with this board, it really met and exceeded the expectations I had for it in terms of performance and the unique feature set that this ROG board is equipped with. If you want a board that offers it all, while not totally breaking the bank, the Maximus V Formula should easily be in the running for your performance and gaming dollar. Awesome overclocking, excellent cooling, Supreme FX IV sound, gaming enhancements, software tools galore, and the great looks ASUS ROG series are known for it`s got it all."

Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 650W PSU Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Be Quiet! is planning what many European companies have tried in the past, to infiltrate the north American consumer market; a quite bold move, considering that most companies before them have failed to reach fruitful results. Be Quiet! however is not fooling around; the company already has a strong lineup of high quality and interesting products, as well as a good base market in Europe and Asia, therefore their odds of success are not bad. Today we had a look at their high performance power supply series and we have to admit that we found the craftsmanship and design superior to that of most comparable products available today..."

BitFenix Prodigy Mini-ITX PC Case Review
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve never been fond of HTPC (mini-ITX) systems mainly because they offer very little in terms of performance so especially for someone in my line of work that`s extremely important. Now as some of you know i do own a basic HTPC system (Intel ATOM/Nvidia ION) which i rarely use but the small enclosure it`s housed in (Antec ISK3100-150) doesn`t leave much space for anything else aside the mainboard, memory modules, an slim optical drive and a 2.5 hard disk drive. Of course there are quite a few larger HTPC cases in the market (such as the V353 by Lian-Li) that offer superior build quality and a more spacious interior for enthusiasts but the end result is not really that different mainly due to the design of the interior. Well Bitfenix seems to be aware of that issue and so just recently they launched their own HTPC (mini-ITX) solution, the quite impressive Prodigy."

TECH NEWS: Google Nexus 7 Tablet Review (16GB Wi-Fi Only)
     Mon, Dec 17 2012 | 10:31P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After Google`s foray into the consumer hardware space in 2008 with the G1, Android products have improved drastically. In 2012, it made sense to join the tablet scene, and in July, Google introduced the Nexus 7. This followed with the announcement of the 32 GB Nexus 7 in November and, with a price decrease for the 16 GB model to $199, they hit the sweet spot for tablet pricing. Priced the same as the Amazon Kindle Fire HD, and $30 cheaper than the Barnes & Nobel Nook HD in a similar 16 GB configuration, things now to seem no more than a personal preference."
