EagleTech ET-NP100K Neptor 10000mAh External Battery Pack Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, May 29 2013 | 10:16A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review Ive got one of the newest products from EagleTech that really doesnt have any fancy name, its simply called the Neptor External Battery Pack. There are a few things that separate this portable battery pack from others on the market today. The first of them being the rather large 10,000mAh battery thats inside of it that can charge most anything from phones to tablets. The second thing, and one of the most important I think, is the battery is user replaceable. The third thing that separates this from others out there is the fact that you dont need any special tips or adapters, so theres no additional cost. Some battery packs on the market are pricey initially, but then you have to go and spend more money on different tips for all the devices you would like to charge. You can easily end up spending close to or as much as the battery pack itself just on tips. The Neptor battery pack works very well at charging basically anything that can be charged over USB without the need for adapters and it has two USB ports, one with 2.1a and one with .5a output. So read on to learn more about what I think is one of the best portable power solutions on the market today"

Oregon Scientific ATC9K Action Camera
     Wed, May 29 2013 | 8:21A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even less than a decade ago action cameras were pretty much nonexistent so people actually had to mount normal handheld camcorders onto their bodies (helmets, hands, waist) and vehicles something which was neither very easy nor convenient due to size, weight and of course durability issues/limitations (especially for use with Xtreme sports). With the introduction of action cameras a few years back this changed and so now people can actually record up to FullHD content via very small and extremely durable camcorders which are also quite affordable (always compared to their full sized cousins). GoPro and Contour are without doubt the first two names that immediately come to mind when talking about action cameras but they are far from the only manufacturers around and so naturally with the obvious increase of sales in that segment of the market several manufacturers have joined as well. One of them is Oregon Scientific and today we will be testing their ATC9K FullHD 1080p Water Proof Action Camera."

Two years later they`ve revisited the popular design, and made several improvements. Now available with 20nm Synchronous Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash components, Vertex 3.20 is designed to offer better performance for less cost. Vertex 3.20 arrives in 120GB and 240GB capacities, both offering 550 MB/s reads and 520 MB/s writes. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the 240GB OCZ Vertex 3.20 SSD (model VTX3-25SAT3-240G.20), and compares it against both the 120GB model as well as the fastest SATA 6GB/s storage solutions available."

Case Mod Friday: Smokey Green Giant @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, May 28 2013 | 7:40P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Derrick Ubbinks Smokey Green Giant build. Here is what he had to say about it: The inspiration for this build comes from the frustration of dealing with small cases while water cooling. I set out to find a case that was simply huge and didnt have terrible outer aesthetics. I found the Fulmo GT met these requirements so quickly ordered one and set to work gutting it and making it to my liking. In the end I went with a dual loop water cooled setup, one for CPU the other GPU, each cooled by a single 420mm Alphacool radiator. And what started out as a TRI-SLI 3GB GTX 580 rig quickly became QUAD-SLI 580s and finally I went for a pair of GTX Titans. Im super happy with the results and will just be enjoying it for awhile!"

Deep Cool M6 2.1 Speaker System ad Laptop Cool Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Tue, May 28 2013 | 7:40P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here at Pro-Clockers, we have already reviewed and took a look at many laptop coolers over the years. Some are simply a cooler, some coolers turn into stands and some have even served as a USB port for many different peripherals. Today, I get to check out a laptop cooler that is a little different from these which I just mentioned. We are taking a look at the DeepCool M6 Audio Cooling Pad. You read that right! This cooling pad has secondary speakers for your laptop which is a brilliant idea to me since many laptops` audio gear is way underperforming."
