HotHardware's 2013 Back To School Shopping Guide
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 4:00P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's back-to-school season, and whether you've started classes recently or are awaiting (dreading?) that first 8AM lecture, there may be a few bits of techno-shopping that need to be taken care of before you can be on your way to that straight-A report card. Whether you're about to begin the Fall semester of college or your senior year in high school (or something else entirely), you'll probably need the right hardware to get you through. In the pages to come, we'll be taking a look at today's latest and greatest when it comes to systems, hardware and peripherals that could prove useful for any dutiful student...

XMG P303 Pro Gaming Laptop Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 1:26P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Of course 17 ultra-thin laptops are not the only option when it comes to portable gaming/power use. The other end of the scale sees us dip into the 13 form factor and while those systems might not be quite as thin they are very portable. So today we take a look at XMGs P303 which sticks to that 13 size while still including high end Intel and NVIDIA components. Let`s see how it does against the 17 competition in the form of the Razer Blade R2 and brand new MSI GS70 Stealth."

MSI GTX 780 Lightning 3 GB @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 12:58P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI`s new GTX 780 Lightning is built to provide maximum overclocking features for enthusiasts and record breakers. It comes with a large overclock out of the box that makes it faster than GTX Titan, yet still has more headroom inside. Our manual overclocking yielded another 14% performance increase."

Thermaltake Smart 750W Power Supply Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 9:50A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like most companies Thermaltake has an entire range of power supplies from the high-end to something for people looking to save some money. Not everyone has the money to throw at a top of the line power supply and Thermaltake knows this. Today we are taking a look at one of their more mainstream power supplies in the Smart SP-750P 750W Power Supply. This unit lacks some of the high-end features like modular cables and Over Temperature Protection, but you do get things like an 80PLUS Bronze certification, flat low profile cables, a single 12V rail design and of course a much lower price tag. Lets take the Smart 750W through the paces and see how it works out."

Seagate NAS HDD 4TB Review @ Techgage
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 9:24A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The arena for NAS-targeted hard drives has just welcomed a second combatant: Seagates NAS HDD. Like WDs Red series, NAS HDD is designed to work well with RAID controllers, has improved vibration-reduction, and additional power profiles. Unlike WDs Red, NAS HDD has a 4TB model. Lets see how that one stands up."

Patriot Fuel+ Mobile Rechargeable Battery Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 9:13A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the more interesting new product lines from Patriot Memory would certainly have to be the FUEL+ mobile rechargeable batteries. Ranging in size from 1500mAh up-to 9000mAh, the FUEL+ product family features a full line of Li-Ion battery sizes to fit the needs of pretty much every tablet and smartphone user. We will be looking at the Patriot Fuel+ 5200mAh and 7800mAh battery today."

ASUS Z87-Deluxe Review @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 9:12A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z87-Deluxe from ASUS belongs to the best equipped Z87 motherboards available. Therefore it`s almost obvious, that there are plenty of features as well as a high quality power design. Like discussed before the actual Haswell launch, ASUS switched the color scheme with their latest classic series motherboards from black/blue to black/gold/yellow, which really was a brave move."

Cougar Archon Mid-Tower Gaming Case Review
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mid-tower PC case market is a very crowded segment, so differentiating yourself from the competition is what is going to be required in order to become a successful product. Even the sub-category of "gaming" mid-tower PC case is becoming populated with dozens of choices. When we drill even further down to the sub-sub-category of "budget" "gaming" mid-tower PC case, the choices begin to thin considerably. The Cougar Archon mid-tower PC case is being marketed as "the cutting edge gaming case" -- a very strong statement for a budget case with an MSRP of $49.99 (priced on Newegg.com 8/19, $3.99 for shipping). We would like to thank Cougar for providing the review sample. Let's give the Cougar Archon a closer look, and see how it is to build a system into.

Angelbird SSD2go & Angelbird SSD2go TWIN 480GB
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the rapid progress of technology from one day to the next, concepts, ideas, inventions, and reinventions suddenly turn from wishful thinking into reality. In the case of solid-state drives the burning question was whether we would see a viable external solution. Conventional hard-drives already go their external variant primarily thanks to USB 2.0; with the raw speed and performance of SSDs however, the lagging catalyst was the upgraded USB 3.0 interface standard. Of course a slue of other components were needed as well – cooling, enclosure size, controllers, design, chipsets just to name a few.

Antec AMP SP1 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink

Hard Disk Drive Short Stroke Guide
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Short stroking will not magically turn a 7200 RPM drive into a 10,000 RPM drive. As we pointed out in our article, that perception is somewhat illusory as the physical characteristics of the "mo...dded" drive remains the same. However, short stroking will improve performance in certain situations... and believe it or not, most of us are actually short stroking our hard disk drives without knowing it. Surprised? We will clarify it all in this guide."

LG Optimus G Pro Performance Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 7:31A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is certainly no shortage of performance from the LG Optimus G Pro. When compared to the original LG Optimus G we saw some significant gains when it came to the processor performance. Though its interesting that the browser performance in the LG Optimus G Pro was actually lower than that of the Optimus G, not by huge margins though, and not likely anything that would be noticeable either way in anything but a side by side comparison. The processor performance was the key though..."

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.
