Zowie Ec2 gaming mouse @ Rbmods
     Sun, Nov 11 2012 | 12:23P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once again we take a look at a gaming mouse, we received Zowies latest mouse that they named Ec2. Zowie is well known for their keyboards so I have high expectations for this gaming mouse also. With features like a 1,5mm lift off distance, easy DPI adjustment and 1000Hz report rate this mouse should be quite decent so lets take a look at it.

Kingston 64GB microSDXC Class 10 Flash Card Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, Nov 11 2012 | 11:23A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today Ive got another microSD card, well actually its technically a microSDXC card. The card is the newest 64gb from Kingston which is a class 10 card offering minimum speeds of 10 mb/s, which should be fine for any HD recording that you might need or want to do. Ive put it up for comparison against several other microSD cards Ive got on hand and this new card from Kingston performs well overall. Its not the fastest of the bunch, but it sure is the biggest, so if you need storage space, then Kingston has got you covered. "

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sun, Nov 11 2012 | 11:23A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mad Catz has always taken wild swings at design and innovation. Their latest introduction, the Mad Catz STRIKE 7 gaming keyboard, is among the most luxurious and expensive keyboards on the market. With 7 detachable and modular pieces, 1 TFT-LCD touch screen, 12 programmable macro keys, 12 touch screen macros, and 3 instant toggle profiles, the raw capability of this keyboard can put any keyboard to shame. Benchmark Reviews will take apart the STRIKE 7 and see if it really is the king of the crop."

Gigabyte`s new Krypton mouse may be slightly expensive at $80 but  it can be used by left or right handed gamers and includes an envious feature set.  This goes hand in hand with the double sided Krypton gaming mouse pad that goes for $40 while providing a huge surface for enthusiasts"

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - CPUID Maximum Value Limit
     Sun, Nov 11 2012 | 8:49A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *CPUID Maximum Value Limit* setting."

Jabra SOLEMATE The Ultimate Portable Speaker Review
     Sat, Nov 10 2012 | 8:07P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During the past 2 years Ive seen many companies release wireless speakers for use with smartphones and tablets by using the typical Bluetooth connection (and rarely via Wi-Fi). However in most occasions these speakers are not to be taken seriously due to the fact they most of them have but a single speaker (monophonic) and their audio levels are not much better than those of your smartphone/tablet. Sure there are quite a few exceptions out there in the market including the very good Audyssey Dock Air (Wi-Fi) and several other high quality ones by JBL and Klipsch but the price range of those is way far from what most people can afford for a portable wireless speaker. Well according to Jabra their latest SOLEMATE wireless portable speaker hits the sweet spot between performance and price and so we`ve been using it for a period of almost 20 days to see whether or not their claims have any base at all."

[DreamWare Computers] Cloud Computing Architecture: Making the Best Decision for Your Small Office
     Sat, Nov 10 2012 | 3:33P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cloud computing has been around for a while now, but because of the initial startup investments, a lot of small businesses have not yet made the jump to this new technology. In some cases, this may be a wise decision, because the tools and resources the cloud offers might not be necessary in such a small office. However, the cloud has made it possible for SMBs to access powerful tools and services enough that its actually possible for them to compete on some level with much larger companies"

Mushkin 7mm Chronos Deluxe 120GB SSD Review @HiTech Legion
     Sat, Nov 10 2012 | 11:46A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
/Renowned memory manufacturer Mushkin is answering the call with the 7mm Chronos Deluxe SSD line with available cpapcities from 60-480GB. In this article we will be looking at the Mushkin 7mm Chronos Deluxe 120GB MKNSSDCR120GB-DX7, which at 120GB has been the most popular recent size among consumers. While thinner, the 7mm Chronos Deluxe retains all of the features and technology that made the standard Chronos Deluxe a top performer. The 7mm Chronos Deluxe uses the SandForce 2281 controller paired with high speed synchronous MLC NAND to achieve blistering 560 MB/s read and 515 MB/s write speeds with 90,000 IOPS (4K random write, 4K aligned) using a SATA III connection. Though slim, the 7mm Chronos Deluxe still shows off shock resistance to 1500G and a temperature tolerance from 0-70 C for reliability in stressful environments./"
