Patriot Memory 120GB Wildfire Solid State Drive (SSD) Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 12:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Previous SSD (Solid State Drive) reviews on ModSynergy have shown the promise and improvement that an SSD can make to one`s computing experience. The noticeable leap in performance can easily be seen and fully realized the first time you start your machine. Although we have reviewed a few of them so far, those have been from the lower to mid-range offerings based on the older SATA 1.5Gb/s, and SATA 3Gb/s interfaces. Time has flown by, and advancements to technologies related to SSD controllers and flash memory have matured, and now we are in the midst of numerous SSD offerings that look to saturate and max out the latest SATA 6Gb/s interface. Today we look to an old friend for some vision of what high-performance SSD`s bring to the table, with the brand new Patriot Memory Wildfire series of SSD`s. In this case I present to you the review of the 120GB version of Patriot`s Wildfire SSD. Based on the SandForce SF-2200 SSD controller that is highly regarded and paired with MLC based NAND Flash memory, we will see what maximum performance and maximum IOPS performance feels like. Will the improvement in speed ever end?"

     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 11:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All Zombies Must Die! (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com All Zombies Must Die! is developed by Doublesix and Published by Square Enix. It is an arcade style RPG shooter with a self-consciously thin plot and a light hearted take on the zombie apocalypse scenario, this is a game focused on fun rather than story telling. Released this coming week the PC version is downloadable through Steam and comes with numerous fixes and improvements based on feedback from the console version."

AMD Radeon HD 7770 1GB Reference Design Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 11:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First we checked out the XFX offering which was called the HD 7770 Black Edition S Super Overclocked, then we looked at the Sapphire card and discovered it carried with it a similar strong overclock and we tested the new model in CrossFire. From there we moved away from the HD 7770 and looked at the HIS HD 7750 1GB to see how the new HD 7700 series was rounded out. If that wasn`t enough of the new HD 7700 series we also checked out the dual fan MSI HD 7770 and proceeded to see how high we could overclock the model. After all that was done and I found myself looking at the reference HD 7770 we have here today from AMD. I realized that we actually haven`t looked at reference clock performance of the new model."

Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 Dual-X 3GB OC Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 10:44A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`re getting to that point where`s it`s been long enough after the launch of a new high-end video card model that we start to see companies mixing it up a bit and while XFX came out the gate early with the custom cooled Black Edition Double Dissipation model, we haven`t seen anyone else do anything. Well, that`s till today! Today we`re looking at the brand new Sapphire HD 7970 Dual-X 3GB OC which at the time of writing hasn`t even shown up on the Sapphire website yet. That gives you an idea of just how new the model is and just how quickly we`re able to get ahold of it thanks to being based out of Taiwan now."

Tesoro Durandal Ultimate G1NL Mech. Keyboard Review
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 10:44A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For subpar backlighting and nothing too super special about the keyboard in general, I cannot justify the $180 price tag it has mounted to it. Don`t let the cost fool you into thinking more money means better quality, because this isn`t always the case. It`s not a bad keyboard, don`t get me wrong, but for the price, save yourself some coin and go with something else. It`s just overpriced for what it is, the little bit of lighting(poorly done at that), doesn`t justify the absurd cost. Now if you`ve got funds that you just don`t know what to do with, buy this and perhaps helping Tesoro get their feet wet in the US will encourage some price decreases for the rest of us."

[Tech ARP] Apple To Re-Enable 3G Switch In iPhone 4S
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 10:44A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fast forward to 16th December 2011 and the launch of the Apple iPhone 4S. I was one of the first to upgrade to the iPhone 4S due to an almost-dead Home button on my iPhone 3GS. But almost immediately, I noticed a big problem - like the Dopod 595, the iPhone 4S won`t allow me to disable the 3G network! The call would randomly drop and I would get a Call Failed notice, and the signal would drop to nothing and the iPhone starts searching for the Maxis network. It takes a minute or two before it would reconnect and allow me to make another call. Needless to say, it`s not only frustrating but is also costing me money in extra calls. After complaining to Maxis countless times, I was able to discuss this problem with their engineers. During one of our conversations recently, their engineer told me that they have been in touch with Apple about my problem, and one of the solutions Apple suggested was for me to wait for the upcoming iOS 5.1 update. In today`s update, we look at the changes in iOS 5.1 and see it solves the call dropping issue with 3G networks."

nMedia HTPC 7000B SFF Chassis Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 10:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
nMEDIAPC has made a name for itself in the home theater PC (HTPC) community for consistently delivering well-built, good-looking, and reasonably-priced chassis comfortable in the A/V stack. Offering a brushed aluminum front panel and a street price of $80, at first glance the HTPC 7000B seems to carry on this tradition. Coupled with two 120mm fans, we should expect excellent cooling from this full-height enclosure, but with a depth of just over twelve inches there are sure to be trade-offs where the form factor is both an asset and a liability; keep reading to find out how this case measures up. *"

Android Tablet and Keyboard Dock Review
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When we first heard about the best name ever for a tablet PC, or possibly any component, we had visions of a robotic looking blue and red case... sadly, well kind of, this proved not to be and instead Asus released a sleek looking update to the original Transformer that we reviewed last year. The Prime is one of the world's first Android tablets with a quad-core processor and is running Android 4.0 and today we have one on our test bench for review."

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.
