Corsair Obsidian 750D @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Dec 28 2013 | 1:32P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Obsidian 750D aims to fill the compact full-tower chassis spot in the updated Obsidian family. With the 900D taking the top and the 350D firmly situated in the mid-tower segment, the 750D has a price tag to match its size, but will it be able to deliver everything to warrant the Obsidian name?"

SanDisk Optimus Eco SAS Enterprise SSD Review (400GB)
     Sat, Dec 28 2013 | 9:12A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A lot has changed since the announcement of the Optimus Eco earlier this year. The most notable change is the company supplying it. When we last looked into SMART Storage Systems, they had just finished being acquired by SanDisk. At that point, though, nothing had really changed except for a SanDisk Company being added to their name. Many were unsure exactly how the SMART brand would fit into the SanDisk family. With the release of the SanDisk Optimus Eco SAS SSD, with full SanDisk labeling, we have a much clearer picture."

Fractal Design Integra R2 750W Power Supply
     Sat, Dec 28 2013 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A little while ago we had our first encounter with Fractal Design’s power supply units, in our review of the Tesla R2 650W. The 80Plus Gold certified Tesla R2 proved to be a formidable adversary for the competition; however, the retail price is placing it out of the reach of most mainstream users. Today we will be having a look at the most powerful PSU of the Integra series, the 80Plus Bronze certified series of Fractal Design, the Integra R2 750W.

Crucial M500 480GB SSD @ Custom PC Review
     Sat, Dec 28 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Nearly two years after the release of the Crucial M4, Crucial unveiled the M500, which we'll be reviewing today. The Crucial M500 now follows the exact same naming scheme used by Micron, so as far as I’m concerned the Crucial M500 and the Micron M500 are pretty much the same thing, similar to what we saw with the Crucial M4 and the Micron C400. As usual..."

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings 2-Years Later Review
     Sat, Dec 28 2013 | 8:59A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings a game to remember, or one best left forgotten? In my opinion, this is one memory you want to remember. The graphics, story, and gameplay are of high quality and I cannot think of another game that outmatches this excellent combination. Indeed it leaves me in an awkward position as the only thing preventing me from saying, The Witcher 2 is a great game, is that I cannot think of another game that borrows from this one to make itself better. If I had reviewed this game when The Witcher 2 was still a new release though, you can be certain I would laud it as a great game for its genre and potentially the game industry (Editor`s Note: Still is!). It has left me that impressed."

Kingston Hyper X DDR3 Memory Review
     Fri, Dec 27 2013 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston has been a player in the memory market for a long time and their products tend not to disappoint. Both of the HyperX kits continue in a strong performing HyperX product line. I would quickly recommend either of these kits to anyone looking to upgrade their systems.

Shuttle OmniNAS KD21 review: great design
     Fri, Dec 27 2013 | 4:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Shuttle OmniNAS KD21 made a positive impression, it performs well and the firmware is well-organised. The enclosure is a strong point of this NAS, feauturing a memory card reader and two USB 3.0 ports. The software features are limited to downloading torrents, the Sharebox and mobile apps. If that's all you need, then the Shuttle OmniNAS KD21 is a very good and affordable NAS device.

Cougar MX500 Mid Tower
     Fri, Dec 27 2013 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Various price points exist for different ranges of computer case products, though lately several manufacturers have taken to the notion that the ratio of paying less for getting less is too heavily skewed in favor of paying less for getting nowhere near enough for your money. Cougar figures it’s their turn to toss another chip into the stack of affordably-priced gamer cases with the introduction of the MX500 mid tower case. Said to be a sleek, modern designed gaming tower, does this offer gamers the features they crave without breaking the bank? Let’s dig in and find out.”

NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk Smart AC1900 Wi-Fi Router Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Dec 27 2013 | 1:32P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nothing can deliver the raw capability of Gigabit Ethernet when it comes to pushing large amounts of data around the home. Unfortunately, in many homes it just is not practical to pull Cat-6 through the walls, so other methods must be found to enable the demands of a fully functional media consumption network. Where many other low-installation-effort home networking technologies have failed, 802.11ACs 1300Mbps of theoretical bandwidth is tantalizing. With more than enough headroom to deliver stutter free streaming it holds tremendous promise, but whether the technology can really deliver was still open even after our first look. Today we have another chance to examine it however this time with NETGEARs $199 Dual-band AC1900 R7000 Nighthawk Smart Wi-Fi Router. The R7000 is particularly interesting not only because its dual-core 1GHz processor and USB 3.0 support represents the current state-of-the art in Wi-Fi appliances, but because the underlying Broadcom 4709 Communication Processor (which makes that possible) marks a shift from MIPS to ARM for this market segment. Of course that change is only meaningful if the R7000 can deliver the stability, feature set and performance demanded by the home media enthusiast. *"

Func KB-460 Cherry MX Backlit Gaming Keyboard Review @HiTech Legion
     Fri, Dec 27 2013 | 10:02A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The choice of the Red switches was obvious as they are the primary gamer`s choice, but Func has stated that switch options may be available in the near future. The KB-460 also features full N-Key roll over anti-ghosting allowing for infinite simultaneous keys to be depressed and read, making the most difficult of combinations a possibility. Function keys double as multimedia controls and profile selectors allowing for control without ever needing to leave your game or open software."

GeForce GTX 670 vs GTX 770 - Should I upgrade? @ ocaholic
     Fri, Dec 27 2013 | 9:12A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A gamer simply can`t get enough graphics power in their rig, which makes the upgrade question omnipresent. To show you whether it makes sense to upgrade from one generation to another we created this series of articles, where we will compare graphics cards from different generations. Today we`re having a close look at the differences between the GTX 670 and the GTX 770."

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.
