Logitech k310 Washable Keyboard
     Fri, May 31 2013 | 10:14A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How many times have you accidentally spilled water or soda on your precious keyboard? Well i can`t speak on behalf of everyone out there but it has happened to me more than just once and unfortunately most keyboards out there if not all of them offer nothing to counter the effects of something like that. So if you are lucky enough to just spill water on your keyboard chances are that it will still keep working after you dry it but if you are unlucky enough to spill soda then ingredients like sugar and citric acid will definitely ruin it or at the very least put you through lots of trouble cleaning it. Well with the latest k310 washable keyboard Logitech just might have the ideal solution to such incidents and naturally we just had to take it for a spin."

Metro: Last Light @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, May 31 2013 | 10:14A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the first-person shooter genre all but locked down by staples like the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises sometimes it is refreshing to get the chance to see something new. The release of 4A Games Metro 2033 in 2010 was one such breath of fresh air so much so that a sequel was in the works almost immediately. Mired in delays that had very little to do with the game itself, however, it isnt until now that we have gotten the chance to play it. It is finally time to see if Metro: Last Light stands up to the amazing visuals and story-driven single player that the original did so well."

PowerColor PCS+ HD7870 Gaming Video Card @ TechwareLabs
     Fri, May 31 2013 | 8:21A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
By the grace of TUL Corporation, we have been presented with a PowerColor PCS+ HD 7870 MYST Edition. PowerColor themselves are a Taiwanese subset of the previously mentioned TUL corporation, and are licensed producers of the ATI Radeon cards, as well as Nvidia cards, which they release under the Zogis brand name. Since PowerColor has the ability to change the specifications on the cards they sell, most of their cards are overclocked by default, something of a double-edged sword in my opinion, but more on that later. Ranging in price from $235 and $263 depending on the retailer, this card, with its great many features is possibly within the higher ends of availability for most consumers."

RHA MA450i Earphones Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, May 30 2013 | 4:27P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
/ /The RHA MA450i earphones are noise isolating earphones equipped with an inline remote and microphone for the Apple iPod, iPhone or iPad. The RHA MA450i`s housing is machined from aircraft grade aluminum while the copper cable is covered in braided fabric for minimal tangling and durability. RHA`s signature aerophonic chamber design used in the MA150 and MA350 is also used on the MA450i, producing natural sounds with much clarity compared to traditional earphone designs. Noise isolation in the MA450i is handled by 7-pairs of interchangeable silicone ear tips of varying sizes including a double flange pair. Each ear tip is made of two different kinds of high-quality silicone: a firmer piece for the inner chamber and a softer piece for the flange to comfortably fit inside the ear canal. The MA450i is available in a black or white version and is backed by RHA with a 3-year warranty.///"

Nvidia GTX 770 @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, May 30 2013 | 10:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week we took a look at the Nvidia GTX 780, their first card in the 700 series of cards. Surprisingly I am sitting here a week later already telling you about their next card: the GTX 770. Is the combination of the GTX 780 and GTX 770 a one-two punch or a hit and a miss? Well in order to find out we had to put it through our benchmark suite to see what it was capable of. I enjoyed the GTX 780; I hope they are able to keep it up with the GTX 770."

Fractal Design Node 605 HTPC Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, May 30 2013 | 10:14A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not that long ago we took a look at Fractal Designs Node 304 case. This small form factor case was made for mini-ITX motherboards. Today we have the Node 304s big brother the Node 605. This case is designed the be a home theater PC case. It supports full ATX motherboards, which is great as many people repurpose old systems into home theater PCs. The front of the case has a nice brushed aluminum finish and inside you have room for up to 4 hard drives. Other features include USB 3.0 support, a card reader and two 120mm fans included. Is this the case for your next HTPC build?"

Fractal Design Node 605 Silent HTPC Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, May 30 2013 | 10:14A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design really did a great job with the Node 605. The face of the case is a beautiful black aluminum design, which also has a way to keep the front I/O ports hidden in style. The whole HTPC concept may be questionable by some, but others (like myself) see the value and luxury behind it. The Node 605 really will look gorgeous beside your other HTPC components, and it certainly fits in with mine..."
