Silverstone Sugo Pack @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Feb 13 2013 | 9:30A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the reasons Mini ITX builds have been slowly becoming more popular is their portability. Packing up your rig and carrying it into a LAN is much easier when you have a nice handle to hang onto. We recently took a look at the Silverstone FT03, although I found it to be a perfect case for LAN use, I also felt it was hard to carry. Because of that Silverstone sent over their Sugo Pack for us to check out with the FT03. With extra carrying space and a way to carry your small form factor case around the Sugo Pack could be a great way to get your gear to the next LAN, lets find out if its as great as it looks."

Samsung 840 Pro Series 512GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Feb 13 2013 | 9:14A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we outlined previously, the 840 Pro is the enthusiast level drive in the 840 Series line of drives from Samsung with the more vanilla (in name anyway) 840 hitting the more budget oriented demographic. The former is rocking Toggle 2.0 MLC NAND while the latter being the first consumer drive to roll out with the TLC NAND. Each share the same controller but between the NAND and firmware differences, the end performance is quite different. Continuing on with our summation of the overall performance, we can`t say enough good things about this drive. Clearly this is one of the fastest consumer SSDs you can buy right now in terms of raw speed with its only real peer being the OCZ Vector drive powered by the Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller. Regardless of the test or benchmark we threw at it, the 840 Pro ended up with the best or second best scores more often than not. Honestly, on the SATA III interface, we probably will not see any drives performing appreciably better... "

A4Tech Ultracore3 V7 Gun3 Gaming Mouse @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Feb 13 2013 | 9:04A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being an enthusiast doesn`t necessarily mean pouring an incredible amount of money into a hobby. While going to a web site that sells computer components, sorting by Highest Price and just adding everything at the top of the list to your cart will probably result in a fast computer (probably...) I`m not sure if that is what defines an enthusiast. Sometimes finding those products that ride that price/performance line, getting the absolute most for the money spent - that`s where enthusiasm can be found. A4Tech, a company with 25 years of experience with mice and other peripherals, has just released a new line of gaming mice that Benchmark Reviews is going to take a look at today. First up, the A4Tech Ultracore3 V7 Gun3 wired gaming mouse - let`s see what A4Tech has in store for gaming enthusiasts..."

Dual-Core CPUs Drive Modern Graphics Cards?
     Wed, Feb 13 2013 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks back, we examined whether a new GPU like the GeForce GTX 660 could breathe new life into an older quad-core gaming system built in mid 2008. The answer, we concluded, was definitely yes -- but many of you of you asked us to reconsider the question, this time using a dual-core Core 2 Duo. We've done so. And just for fun, we've added overclocked CPU results into the mix as well.

In Win GRone Full Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Feb 13 2013 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In Win has really had a name for themselves over the past year creating some really unique cases in their X-Frame and H-Frame. While these cases look great and are very unique they are not for everyone. Today we are taking a look at one of In Wins latest cases the GRone, which is setup to compete with many cases from the more known brands. To be honest this is the most feature-packed case that Ive seen from In Win. Some of those features include support for motherboards up to E-ATX, room for eight 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch hard drives, five included cooling fans, USB 3.0 support a hard drive dock and much more. Read on as we take a look at the GRone."

Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V.3 4TB SATA III HDD Review
     Wed, Feb 13 2013 | 5:16A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If we exclude the unfortunate floods that took place in Thailand roughly a year ago (and forced several factories to cease HDD manufacturing and shipping) HDD prices normally get serious cuts each day that goes by (as do SSD prices) and so currently even the highest capacity 4TB models retail at such prices that can be easily purchased by casual users and gamers around the world. That however mostly stands with entry level models that offer exactly what most users want and that`s a good price to capacity ratio without however sacrificing performance. On the other hand however professionals and enterprise users want the best money can buy not only in terms of performance and capacity but also in terms of durability under extreme conditions and that`s where enterprise class HDDs like the latest Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V.3 (former Constellation ES.3) 4TB SATA III come in."

GX-Gaming Gila @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Feb 12 2013 | 5:12P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Genius has sent us a mouse from their new Gx-Gaming lineup, one that they call the Gila. The Gila is a new high end gaming mouse aimed at the MMO/RTS gamer. One curious thing I have wondered since getting the product is what the name meant. Upon a bit of research I was able to discover that most of GX-Gamings peripherals have names that make them seem like creatures or monsters, so I can only assume that it is named for the Gila monster, a lizard native to the southwestern United States. Seeing as how its poisoned, lets hope it doesnt bite."
