Cetons My Media Center Controller Software Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 12:24P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier today a new Windows 8 Metro version of Ceton`s suite of applications for managing Windows Media Center joined the existing lineup of Andriod, Windows Phone and iOS companion apps priced at $4.99. As part of this effort they were rebranded from Ceton Companion Apps to My Media Center. All the great functionality for browsing recordings, managing series and scheduling, and browsing the guide is still there, but this time Windows 8 tablet and desktop Metro users can also join the party. We had a chance to take an early spin through the updated UI, let`s dig in. *"

Xi3 Making Valve’s Fabled Steam Box?
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier, we came across a hot item about Valve and their rumored Steam Box gaming console. Word came out that modular PC maker Xi3 was Valve’s hardware partner on the project and was showing off the result, a beautifully designed computer called the Piston. However, when we eagerly scooted over to Valve’s booth here at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, they told us that the story simply was not true.

Sony MDR-1RNC review: excellent noise cancellation
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 12:00P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All things considered, we were pretty impressed by the MDR-1RNC. Generally speaking, the headphones sounds excellent, even if they’re not the best we've ever heard. The lows are a little too weak, and this will be noticeable to those that enjoy bass-heavy music. For the majority of genres these headphones will be great, however, and that's supplemented by the extremely effective noise cancellation. The latter does affect the sound signature, but it's something you can live with. If you frequently travel in noisy environments, you will definitely appreciate the silence created by the 1RNC.

Kingston SSDNow KC100 240GB SSD Upgrade Kit Review
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 11:24A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just 2 days prior to getting into 2013 we had to sit down and pick the first product reviews which would get us into 2013 for good and since recently we promised to bridge the gap created in our SSD reviews section we decided to test yet another such product. Now if you read our Intel 335 SSD review you should be well aware that the performance factor regarding SATA III solid state drives hasn`t really changed that much in 2012 (always compared to 2011) and so at least until the new controllers arrive in late Q1 (if all goes according to plan) we really can`t expect to come across anything that will blow what we currently know out of the water. 2012 however did see a significant price drop in SSDs and so currently consumer models with capacities up to 240GB are surprisingly easy to acquire. Still there are some SSDs in the market with businesses as their target audience and the Kingston SSDNow KC100 240GB solid state drive we have here with us today is such a solution."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
