32GB OTG USB Flash Drive Roundup - Corsair Kingston Transcend @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Apr 19 2014 | 2:08P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There was a time just recently when there were no USB On-The-Go (OTG) flash drives on the market, but now there are hundreds of different models from dozens of brands. OTG USB flash drives are often referred to as dual-drives due to the fact they feature Micro-USB and Type A USB 2.0 connectors. Legit Reviews took a look at the Corsair Flash Voyager Go back in January 2014, but we have since received OTG Flash drives from Kingston and Transcend. Rather than doing individual reviews on each product we figured that we would compare all three drives to one another since they are all 32GB OTG USB drives aimed at the same consumer..."

Cooler Master Elite 110 Mini-ITX Case Review
     Sat, Apr 19 2014 | 2:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooler Master Elite 110 Mini-ITX Computer Case is a compact, cube style case that can handle some full sized desktop components, while maintaining a relatively small footprint. With the ability to handle a ATX sized power supply, and desktop graphic cards up to 210mm (8.26 inches), the Elite 110 is aimed at more than just the niche market. Sporting the ability to hold 4 SSDs or 3 HDDs, storage options are not a problem."

Linksys EA6900 AC1900 Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router
     Sat, Apr 19 2014 | 9:55A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wireless technology never stands still so although it wasn`t until roughly just over a year ago when manufacturers released their very first AC1750 compatible routers now we already see AC1900 compatible ones offering even higher combined speeds. Of course not every single manufacturer out there has joined in on the fun as of yet but the market leaders like Linksys and Netgear can`t afford to not be on the forefront of technology so naturally their AC1900 routers are the first to see the light of day. Our routers review section is somewhat under populated compared to out other sections because we don`t do router reviews of models that we think have nothing new and innovative to offer (both in features and specifications) but the brand new EA6900 AC1900 Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router by Linksys seems to have everything going for it from appearance and up to features and specifications so we just had to take a look."

What Role Do SSD Components Play - Learning To Run With Flash
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 7:10P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although most parts are consistent in all SSDs (PCB, controller, memory, interface), we will describe that which the consumer is most likely to see, the notebook SSD. Originally available in a thickness of 9.5mm, todays notebook SSDs are typically only 7mm thick to allow for ultra book installations and may include a rubber spacer to allow it to fit notebooks that require that 9.5cm width."

Blackfire CLAMPLIGHT LED Flashlight Review @ TestFreaks
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 2:07P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I have something a bit different, a flashlight from a company called Blackfire. Normally we cover tech products, but we do cover everything really, but flashlights these days can be considered high tech when you really look at them with high intensity LEDs and futuristic designs. The flashlight I have today is called the Clamplight and it`s what I would call a utility light as as its name suggests, it has a clamp built-in so you can attach the light most anywhere to make sure you have light where you need it most. So read on to learn about a very versatile product..."

News: For Valve is the Steam controller both a blessing and a curse?
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 10:04A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Valve`s Steam controller looks great on paper. It promises not just greater accuracy than conventional console gamepads, but also support for point-and-click titles that traditionally required a mouse and keyboard. There`s a downside, though. As TR`s Cyril Kowaliski learned first-hand, the Steam controller has a pretty steep learning curvesteep enough, perhaps, to put off some potential converts."

KobraLan Extreme Review @ ocaholic

Posted by: STAFF
KobraLan Extreme is the new mini-monster from KobraPC, which is based on an ITX formfactor with high-end components. The system is Haswell based with an Intel Core i7-4770K in order to pump out high frame rates there is a MSI GTX 780 Ti Gaming graphics card. In addition, the system is pretty clean inside but this build is certainly not cheap. If you`re curious to see what KobraPC has been building, have look at the following review."

NVIDIA Fermi/Kepler GPUs Are The Best Bet For Ubuntu 14.04 Nouveau
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 9:12A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In my testing of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with the Linux 3.13 kernel and Mesa 10.1 for the open-source graphics driver stack provided by Nouveau for NVIDIA GeForce graphics hardware, only the Fermi and Kepler GPUs are running reliably. While these newer NVIDIA GPUs are running stable with Ubuntu 14.04, the performance is still a wreck due to lack of reclocking."

Samsung XP941 Native PCIe M.2 SSD (512GB) Review - 1GB/s Transfer Speeds Set The Bar
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 5:57P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we have previously mentioned in our review of the Plextor M6M solid state drive, it is important to remember that SSD`s can come in different shapes and sizes. Not all drives are going to be the 2.5 form factor and fit perfectly into your ultra book or desktop. We spoke briefly about the mSATA form factor and that you will find it most often in a laptop, but as laptops and ultra books become slimmer, the demand for smaller, yet faster, drives increases. Bring in the native PCIe M.2 form factor. The PCIe M.2 SSD eliminates the SATA 3 bottleneck, where with SATA 3 you can expect SSD speeds around 500 MB/s, but with PCIe you can expect speeds nearly double this. Incredible isn`t it? Imagine, 1GB/s and you are not even using a RAID 0 configuration; it really is astonishing. The Samsung XP941 PCIe M.2 SSD is one of, if not the fastest drive we have ever seen. Let`s take a closer look!"

Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M Hybrid Gaming Mouse
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 11:32A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gaming mice may be a rather new addition to PC peripherals (always compared to others) but that hasn`t really stopped manufacturers from developing and releasing a huge number of models up until today from basic ones aimed at casual users and up to blazing fast and extremely accurate ones designed primarily for serious gamers and professionals. As mentioned in previous reviews however there aren`t that many feature-rich models currently in the market that also combine blazing fast speeds with wireless connectivity and although i have to admit that i was never into using wireless keyboards and mice (mainly due to signal issues in the past) most people i know do. Tt eSPORTS is also rather new in this industry but in the short period they`ve been around they have released more gaming mice models than any other manufacturer to date and so they naturally possess a great deal of knowledge involving the development of such peripherals (they also know what sells). Today on our test bench we have a gaming peripheral that we never really thought they`d develop and we are talking about no other than their latest achievement the Level 10M Wireless Gaming Mouse. "
