Corsair Vengeance M90 Performance MMO and RTS Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Apr 02 2012 | 8:08A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the inception of the first point and click device for computers, there has been someone sitting in a corner thinking to themselves what can I do to make this better and more useful? Over many years of evolution we went from mice with just one button on them, to mice with a pair of buttons and a scroll wheel. For many users this is more than enough to deal with as far as their point and click needs go for emails or finding a recipe for Peking duck for the next family gathering. For me, I prefer a mouse to have as many buttons on it as comfortably possible. By this I mean that if given enough buttons to my mice, I prefer to set my gun swap there, grenades, knife, even the push to talk for whatever application I am on at the time I am gaming. The latter part is the biggest concern to me and that is giving me what I want in options without having an odd shape or having to contort my hands in painful ways to utilize all of the buttons. Corsair matches the K90 keyboard we just looked at with a gaming mate in the Vengeance series. This compatriot in action will allow users to not only have functionality for MMO and RTS games, but the ability it offers the FPS gamers isn`t so shabby either. In the evolution of mice, a lot of us prefer a page forward, page back and selectable DPI on the fly is also something that most of us are getting used to by now. What most of us aren`t used to in mice is the sleek and attractive package that this newest submission has incorporated into this design from Corsair. Things like an aluminum frame and the blue and white LEDs are things that lend it to be the perfect mate to sit alongside the K90 as you will soon see for yourself."

Panasonic TC-P50ST30 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Apr 01 2012 | 11:41A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Panasonic TC-P50ST30 is a 50-inch 3D plasma TV that includes Internet applications and connectivity. It also has fantastic picture quality and very deep black levels, which gives this TV a huge advantage in picture quality. However, Panasonic curiously choose not to include any 3D glasses with the TV.?"

Synology DiskStation DS1512+ NAS Review
     Sun, Apr 01 2012 | 9:03A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new DiskStation DS1512+ from Synology boasts faster read and write speeds compared to its DS1511+ predecessor and packs an updated dual core 2.13GHz Intel Atom D2700 (32nm Cedar Trail) CPU, which should provide a little more oomph than the dated 1.8GHz Atom D525 (45nm Pineview). These extras come at a reasonable $100 premium over last year's model, which should position the DS1512+ as a respectable contender in the current NAS market -- or so the spec sheets would have us believe. We'll take a closer look at the hardware and the recently released DiskStation Manger 4.0 software before we greet Synology's latest offering with our usual array of benchmarks.

BitFenix Raider Case
     Sun, Apr 01 2012 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In conclusion, the Raider was heck of a case. It looks nice and works well enough. It actually comes with three of BitFenix’s Spectre fans, which are more fans than most cases ever ship with. The price of the case seems unaffected by the addition, which makes it an even bigger bonus. The overall appearance is rather simple and has a modern classy look to it. I know some of you, especially fans of the Colossus, would much rather have some flashiness to it, but this is a nice change from your typical “gaming” case."

Logitech Squeezebox Touch Wi-Fi Music Player Review
     Sun, Apr 01 2012 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many people i know think that just because people such as I have been working with computers over the past 2 decades they have no other interests or hobbies but that really couldn't be more wrong since i also happen to love many other things including cars, paintball and most things related to music and movies. True i can't actually review cars here (at least not for the time being) but gadgets and electronics related to music have always been in my crosshairs and that's one of the reasons behind today's review which is about one such device. Of course as the title reveals the gadget i am talking about is no other than the Squeezebox Touch Wi-Fi Music player by Logitech.

Asrock X79 Extreme4 & X79 Extreme4-M
     Sun, Apr 01 2012 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Therefore it appears that Asrock has the affordable LGA2011 segment stitched up nicely and in our opinion offers the best motherboards for pairing with the Intel Core i7-3820 processor. The X79 Extreme4 and X79 Extreme4-M are well rounded boards offering excellent performance, exceptional overclocking abilities, rich feature sets, unbeatable value and low power consumption.

IOGEAR GUWIP204 Wireless USB Sharing Station Review @Missingremote
     Sun, Apr 01 2012 | 1:47A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past year we?ve reviewed a number of different wireless products that help enhance unique home theater environments, such as wireless HDMIstreamers and Bluetooth speakers. For my living situation, the need to extend USB over a wireless network became relevant, and as such, I obtained the GUWIP204 4-Port Wireless USB Sharing Station from IOGEAR to achieve this objective. Things were not perfect however, as we attempted to use this product unconventionally. *"

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com

Posted by: STAFF
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 is upon us and as well as featuring The Masters, which takes place next month, the latest entry in the franchise also makes heavy use of Kinect functionality on Xbox 360 (for those who have it). The addition of motion controls doesn`t guarantee a good experience though so today we find out if a game which should be well suited to Kinect actually succeeds in improving over the traditional pad gameplay."

     Sat, Mar 31 2012 | 5:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to look at the Thrustmaster T500RS. This is one of the highest quality racing wheel/pedal setups on the market.

From the wheels, joysticks to the insane flight controls for the A-10C Warthog game there is something for every gamer.

Logitech Cube Grab-and-Go Mouse Review
     Sat, Mar 31 2012 | 4:25P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The idea here it to make a mouse that is small enough to fit in your pocket, but even more thought went into this design. Everything that we typically consider basic features of a mouse, such as the left click being on the left, or the right click being on the right, or better yet, a scroll wheel that isn`t a wheel at all! The way Logitech went about things here will stand your previous notions of what makes a cool mouse, crumble it all up and throw it in the waste bin. I will be honest; there is more of a business market feel to this new mouse. I used it for a few days and while odd at first, it easily becomes second nature in no time at all, but there are features like its presentation mode that makes you realize that most of us don`t have that concern. Even with the Logitech Cube Grab-and-Go mouse lending its features to the more business minded who would carry the laptop under one arm, their coffee in the other and with this tiny design, you can now slip this mouse slash pointer into a protective sleeve and stash it in your pocket as you walk to the next meeting."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
