CM Pulse-R Headset Review
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 12:20P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I love that I can unplug the cable when I`m on the go rather than wind it tightly around the cups. I`ve destroyed a few pairs wrapping them up that way, so now it`s just tossed in the bag on its own. This headset will be great when I travel for work again, and the padding really keeps the external noise low. My husband was talking to me and I completely missed the entire conversation with just a little music going in the background. I can`t wait to block out the screaming babies and snoring old men"

ASRock Z87E-ITX Intel Desktop Motherboard Review
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Small form factor PC’s have been gaining a lot of momentum and favor with hardware enthusiasts and hardcore gamers these past couple of years. Since more features are integrated into the CPU in recent releases, it means more real estate has been made on ITX form factor motherboards for extras that may well have not fit previously. With the release of Intel Haswell CPU’s and Z87 chipset, motherboard vendors are now more than ever able to condense the features of a full size ATX motherboard into the ITX form factor without much (if any) sacrifice. See for yourself, take a look at an average Z68 or Z77 ATX motherboard and you will start to notice just how much space isn’t occupied. In this article Benchmark Reviews takes an in-depth look at the ASRock Z87E-ITX motherboard, reporting back on special features and performance as well as giving a visual commentary on the aesthetics of this tiny beast.

Seagate Central 3TB review: User-friendly?
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The concept of the Seagate Central is a good one. The hard disk behemoth wanted to develop a user-friendly NAS device, and to keep things manageable for less experienced end-users it kept features to a minimum. If all you want is to share files and be able to access them online and via mobile apps, then you don't need the vast range of features from a QNAP or Synology NAS device.

Silicon-Power Velox V55 240GB
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 12:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall if you are looking at the cheapest possible way to get your hands on an SSD then the Silicon-Power Velox V55 provides a nice option. Performance is strong, although nothing like the top tier models, more like what we saw from the previous generation. Reliability is unknown at this point, though Silicon-Power does offer a 3 year warranty for that piece of mind.

So phones start to become something else at around 5-6inches but when does a tablet become something more? Today we look at a device which Dell market as a `Portable All in One Desktop`, the XPS 18. Is it a desktop though... or is it just about the biggest (and most powerful) tablet out there?"

Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Peter Brands l3p Parvum build.

Cougar RX Series 500W 80 PLUS PSU Review
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cougar brand has been around for just over five years and has already made a significant impact in the gaming community, not only because of the quality products that are created for a very competitive price, but for their elaborate designs and color palette on nearly all cougar products. One can spot a Cougar product from its competitors simply by the orange and black colour design, whether it be a computer case, fan, or power supply unit. Cougar’s mandate has always been to provide innovative and cutting edge products while deviating from the traditional black box-like computer hardware that has been around for decades, while still maintaining competitive price-points. To further this point, we present the 500W Cougar RX Series 80+ PSU, which targets the needs and functionality of first-time builders and gamers alike.

RockDoc Memory 4GB Portable Speakers
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 8:30A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After having used and tested a whole bunch of portable speakers over the past few years last month we received the NuForce Cube High Performance Portable Speaker which ended up blowing our minds since thanks to its size/volume/clarity combo it`s probably (we can never be 100% certain with the amount of portable speakers in the market) the best such gadget one can get in the market currently. However the electronics industry is a place filled with surprises (mostly pleasant ones) so just a week ago we started using/testing another pair of portable speakers sized almost the same as the NuForce Cube and also without featuring Bluetooth connectivity. Instead they pack 4GB of internal memory allowing the end user to store and playback a large number of his/hers music collection without having to connect them to a source. We are of course talking about the POWER and BOOM memory 4GB portable speakers by RockDoc."

Samsung 840 EVO Solid State Drive Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 8:27A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung 840 EVO Solid State Drive Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Replacing the non-Pro 840 models in their product stack and sitting just below the 840 Pro the Evo SSDs arrive in capacities of 120GB-1TB and include some rather interesting software developments. These aim to give us a boost in performance past the level we would normally expect from a SATA3 so today we take the 1TB model for a spin, comparing it in real world and synthetic tests to the direct competitor Crucials 960GB M500 as well as a selection of other current generation models."

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.
