Genius Zabius HS-G850 Gaming Headset Review
     Mon, Jun 09 2014 | 11:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The main attraction to the HS-G850 is the red LED outline strips. I have not seen many headsets with LED?s that will light up to the bass, so I will be very interested in putting this headset in a number of tests to test out the sound quality, microphone quality, comfort, and how well the LED?s can respond to the audio that is playing. Benchmark Reviews has this sample on hand, so let?s take a look at the features and specifications of the Genius Zabius HS-G850 Gaming Headset."

Razer Sabertooth Review
     Mon, Jun 09 2014 | 10:56A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the extra programmable buttons and triggers are certainly a welcome addition, it`s the build quality that impresses me most. The Sabertooth is extremely light, at just over half a pound, yet feels solid and well constructed. The analog sticks are as good or better than any I`ve used in the past, they snap back nicely to the center, and I did not notice any dead zones. The green rubber covers are also a nice touch, and though I haven`t used it enough to get it all sweaty, it`s nice to know I can always remove them and wash them with soap and water if it ever gets to that point. The separate D-Pad buttons are outstanding and should really be standard on all controllers. Lastly, the face buttons (ABXY) are mechanical, so they should last quite awhile, but I`m not necessarily a fan of the mouse-click sound they make; if for no other reason than people around me probably think I`m doing something silly like Cookie Clicker. The back-lighting of ABXY is also completely unnecessary, but whatever."

Actiontec PWR51WK01 Powerline Adapter Kit Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Mon, Jun 09 2014 | 9:06A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For me the Actiontec PWR51WK01 feature set could be very useful. Not just for streaming movies and shows from the Internet and NAS, but also to extend my wireless network to places I don`t have coverage, like by the pool - all with a convenient plug and play set up. The Actiontec PWR51WK01 kit includes a PWR500 powerline adapter and a WPB3000 powerline/wireless N adapter."

Thecus N2560 Intelligent NAS Review @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Jun 09 2014 | 7:45A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A little bit ago I reviewed the Thecus N2310 NAS and I liked it a lot but it was considered a budget class product, today I have the Thecus N2560 for review and its a NAS with more beefier specs, but still one that retains a lower price point. The N2560 has HDMI and SPDIF outputs so it could be used as a tiny HTPC, you just need a mouse and keyboard and youre ready to go to access your media. This NAS features an Intel Atom CE5335 CPU which is dual core CPU running at 1.6ghz and the NAS has a hefty 2gb of DDR3 ram. The N2560 is a very capable NAS with plenty of features for the home or small business user, so read on to learn more.."

Intel 730 Jackson Ridge Raid 0 Review @ Vortez
     Sun, Jun 08 2014 | 4:55P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we first reviewed the Intel 730 SSD we had mixed feelings. While read speeds were certainly good, write performance was below par for a drive of this calibre. Intel were keen to push the benefits of setting these drives up into a striped volume (Raid 0), indeed their own comparison showed the Raid 0 volume compares favourably with a single 480GB drive."

Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA recently began shipping their TITAN Z graphics card that sports two unlocked GK110 GPU cores and 12GB of video memory, but for those that can`t afford this $2,999 USD graphics card, on the opposite end they also began shipping a new budget graphics card: the GeForce GT 740.
