Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H Mainboard Review
     Thu, Aug 22 2013 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is an entry-level mainboard, but not the most junior model in the family. It uses the features and functionality of the Intel Z87 chipset almost to the fullest, but has no numerous additional onboard controllers, thus staying reasonably priced. The new Gigabyte UEFI BIOS makes a terrific impression making this board stable and reliable in nominal mode and easy to work with during CPU overclocking.

"The Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5104 is a budget-class 15-inch laptop offering sluggish performance and a stingy feature set, but it'll give you five plus hours of unplugged computing."

UtechSmart Gaming Mice Roundup Review
     Thu, Aug 22 2013 | 1:36P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unfortunately the UtechSmart 8000 falls below this mark as something I`d buy. Sure it has some programmable features, but the shape of the mouse and overall comfort come forward to defeat these things (at least for me). The awkward button locations as well as the most ridiculous pre-set button settings I`ve seen makes this mouse useless to me out of the box. If I needed something quick on the go, I`d find anything else. The glowy logo and the DPI settings don`t sell me this mouse. The mouse just falls short in an attempt to be cheap by being the literal definition of cheap crap."

Icy Dock FlexCage 2 Bay and 3 Bay Hard Drive Enclosure Review @ HiTech Legion
     Thu, Aug 22 2013 | 10:08A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Icy Dock MB973SP-1B and the MB974SP-2B are very similar to each other in that they both sport an aluminum chassis with an 80mm cooling fan. The Icy Dock FlexCage MB973SP-1B is able to fit three 3.5 SATA HDDs in two 5.25 drive bays using a trayless design. Both FlexCages are powered by two 4 pin power connectors or by adapting two 15-pin power connectors via the included adapters. The tray less design means that not only is installation of drives toolless -- it is as simple as sliding the drive in and closing the door. This makes it an ideal platform for hot swapping hard drives with minimal hassle. They are both cooled by an included 80mm fan that, in its shipped configuration, pulls air from the front of the drives and exhausts it out of the back. Each of the hard drive bays has an individual hard drive activity LED that is only active when a hard drive is successfully inserted. Both fans can easily be removed and replaced with any 80mm fan using a 2-pin or a 3-pin connector. The aluminum chassis makes it both very durable and far better at dissipating heat than plastic. The main difference between the two is that pricier of the pair, the MB974SP-2B, has 2 USB 3.0 ports on the front connected via a standard USB 3.0 motherboard header, and can hold one more drive than the MB973SP-1B. This can be very useful for older cases that may not have as many places to mount a hard drive or don`t have any USB 3.0 ports on the front panel./"

Kobo Arc Android Tablet eReader Review
     Thu, Aug 22 2013 | 9:06A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many people carrying a book around to read has become a thing of the past, replaced by a phone, tablet, or e-Reader. Kobo?s e-Reader line has been one of the primary competitors for Amazon?s Kindle, that is until Amazon brought out their Kindle Fire. The Kindle Fire helped bring an Android tablet to the masses, and allowed Amazon to distribute its music and movies directly to their device. Kobo is fighting back and Benchmark Reviews tests their new 16GB Kobo Arc 7? Android Tablet eReader (model K107-KBO-16W), which features a 1.5GHz dual core TI OMAP 4470 CPU and a POWERVR SGX 544 GPU."

Dell XPS 27 Touch All-in-One Review
     Thu, Aug 22 2013 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unless you're a gamer or a content-creation professional that requires a lot of computing horsepower, the latest crop of All In One PCs probably seem very attractive. AIOs tend to be quite the lookers, with sleek lines, large and crisp displays, touch capabilities--and of course, a small footprint. We're starting to see AIOs with better and better specifications too, and although they won't be your choice of machine for pwning n00bs just yet, products like the Dell XPS 27 Touch offer very solid specifications in addition to a premium user experience and lots of ports for connecting peripherals, media cards, and more. The Dell XPS 27 Touch is one of the first generational updates to an all-in-one that we've gotten our hands on, having reviewed the original Dell XPS One 27 last year. Thus, we get to see what sort of performance boost Dell's big and beautiful AIO gets from Haswell and an updated NVIDIA GPU.
