MSI HD 7970 3GB Lightning Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sun, Apr 15 2012 | 11:33A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HD 7970 may not be too high on enthusiasts` radars these days but MSI is hoping the newest member of their Lightning series will stand out from all of the other cards on the market. It may have a steep price of $600 but its features are unique and the clock speeds are high so this may be worth the premium over NVIDIA`s GTX 680.* *"

Icy Dock MB971SP-B DuoSwap 2.5/3.5 SATA Hot Swap Drive Caddy Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Apr 15 2012 | 10:24A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Icy Dock MB971SP-B DuoSwap 2.5/3.5 SATA Hot Swap Drive Caddy makes extra storage simple. The MB971SP-B only occupies a single 5.25 drive bay, however, it allows the interface of both a 2.5 and 3.5 HDD or SSD. Power input for the Icy Sock MB971SP-B Duo Swap Drive caddy only requires a single 15-pin HDD connection. Individual 7 pin SATA connections are used for the 3.5/2.5 bays and SATA 3 drives are supported.

MSI Radeon HD 7970 Lightning 3GB Video Cards in CrossFire Overclocked
     Sun, Apr 15 2012 | 9:36A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The other day we checked out the MSI HD 7970 Lightning 3GB and in typical MSI Lightning fashion we found ourselves really impressed with what was on offer. Strong overclocking performance, a good out of the box overclock, awesome cooler and just a huge amount of features make it a stand out video card. We figured what`s better than a single HD 7970 Lightning 3GB overclocked, though? Two MSI HD 7970 Lighting 3GB video cards overclocked and in CrossFire mode! So that`s exactly what we did - we organized another MSI HD 7970 Lightning 3GB, paired it with the one we had and then proceeded to overclock them both in CrossFire. Much fun prevailed, of course."

Roccat Kone[+] @ Techreaction.net
     Sat, Apr 14 2012 | 4:40P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roccat has been coming on strong with their releases of great looking products with tons of customizable features. Today we have the Kone [+] gaming mouse on hand to review. The Kone [+] sports a 6000dpi Pro-Aim Laser Sensor and its integrated Tracking & Distance Control Unit (TDCU). The big upgrade made to the driver and the introduction of the Easy-Shift[+]? button has also turned the Kone[+] into a real, customizable piece of hardware. The highly praised hybrid shell for right-handers, including the Soft-Touch Surface, has been retained, but core improvements have been made that further increase the comfort of Kone?s successor. We will be tossing the mouse on the review table and see how well all these additions and features work. Can it be one of the best mice on the market, or will it fail to utilize everything as well as they say it will? Read on?"

ROCCAT Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard Review
     Sat, Apr 14 2012 | 2:50P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That in mind, when buying from a company like this, you should expect not only a really great product to use as a plug and play ready device, but once the software is incorporated, hold on to your hat, as the amount of options contained within may just blow your mind! Not only do I now get to use my mouse and keyboard together for the EasyShift[+] functionality, I get to write in the dark against because the Isku keyboard we are looking at today is a fully illuminated gaming keyboard. I will say up front that not only was ROCCAT looking outside the box on the way the keyboard functioned, they also took styling to a new geometric realm with the angles and overall shape and design of this keyboard. So, it isn`t like they just crammed a bunch of cool tricks onto a usual rectangular keyboard, with the Isku it is something that is going to be a love it or hate it on first sight kind of design."

Samsung WB150F Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, Apr 14 2012 | 2:17P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung WB150F packs a long 18x zoom lens into a compact body, but its sexiest feature is built-in support for Wi-Fi. Connect to a hotspot and you`ll be able to upload photos directly to your Facebook account, email them to a friend, or view them on your TV. The 14-megapixel camera suffers a bit from noise at higher ISO settings, and it isn`t the fastest camera on the block in terms of start up speed."

SSD NEWS: BIWIN S836 Elite SATA 3 120GB SSD Review - Top Vantage Performance Achieved
     Sat, Apr 14 2012 | 1:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This report is an analysis of the newly released BIWIN S836 Elite SATA 3 120GB SSD and if you haven`t heard of BIWIN prior to this report, you wouldn`t be the first as we learned of them only a few weeks ago while at CeBIT 2012 in Germany. In fact, we had every intention of introducing BIWIN to North America as the `new kid on the block`, at least up until we learned that BIWIN had already shipped over one hundred million (100,000,000) flash storage devices worldwide as of the date of this report."

Further augmenting the Plus package are 2GB DDR3-1333 RAM, WiFi and Infra Red Remote Control... have ZOTAC thought of everything?"

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.
