Patriot Aero 1TB Wireless Mobile Drive
     Mon, Jun 24 2013 | 9:02A | Hardware | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given the compact design, which manages to accommodate not just a 2.5” 1TB hard drive but also a battery supporting up to 6 hours run time, we feel the Patriot Aero is a sound investment. Particularly given a standard external 1TB USB 3.0 drive is priced around $80 - $110. The wireless support and mobile apps make the Aero an ideal solution for avid media buffs, whether it be for work, travel or just relaxing with friends on a weekend.

ASRock FM2A85X-ITX AMD Socket FM2 ITX Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jun 24 2013 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we test a tiny AMD Trinity Socket FM2 motherboard on OCinside.de, which is ideal to build a fast HTPC or even a small gaming PC with its Mini-ITX form factor and AMD A85X chipset. Just 17x17cm in size, the ITX motherboard offers many amazing features of the recently tested ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 ATX mainboard, which received our OverClocking Dream award. The ASRock FM2A85X-ITX motherboard has one PCI Express slot, seven SATA3 ports, one eSATA3 port, Gigabit LAN, 7.1 sound with optical S/PDIF output and graphics output over D-Sub, DVI-D or HDMI. We have tested and extremely overclocked the ASRock FM2A85X-ITX Socket FM2 motherboard with an AMD A10-5800K APU. All overclocking-, benchmark-, and test results are published in the current review and in the extensive AMD motherboard comparison.

Gigabyte G1.Sniper M5 (Z87) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jun 24 2013 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Micro-ATX motherboards and all things on the smaller form factor have been a big highlight in the past year or so, with Mini-ITX taking the market by storm and manufacturers somehow managing to cram all of the much needed, and wanted components into this much smaller sized boards. Fast forward to the present day and we see the same thing happening all over again with Z87 and Gigabyte, as they have managed to produce a board based around the new chipset, branded under the G1-Killer branding, much like we saw with the Z77 M3 board which we loved by the way. For those out there wanting 4-way SLI and a full ATX form factor, Gigabyte have a board just for you; the G1.Sniper 5, but for those wanting a much smaller footprint, they have graced us with the G1.Sniper M5. This particular board is set to pack all of the grunt that its big brother incorporates, without any of the drawbacks, and that can be said for improved audio, overclockability, design and overall key features. Of course it doesn't have the ability for quad SLI, but that's why they have its big brother sharing the limelight to cater for that market. As we work out way through the large stack of Z87 motherboards that we have here, we wanted to make sure that this board was one of the first, because if it's anything like the Z77 G1.Sniper M3 was, then it's going to be a complete animal and may give you a few shocks on the way, as small doesn't necessarily mean underpowered of lacking features, in fact, quite the opposite. Before we check out the performance though, we need to make our way through the packaging and accessories before we take a look at the board itself and all of its features including its shiny new BIOS that has been implemented. Once this is out of the way, we can get down to the nitty gritty and see how it performs at stock speeds as well as pushing it as far as we can under our testbed conditions, and then of course to see how it performs once it's been pushed to its limits, so lets not delay and get straight into it.

Corsair Voyager Air Wireless Mobile Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Jun 24 2013 | 8:41A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsairs Voyager Air is a sleek wireless media sharing device that I feel nailed this concept down quite nicely. The product itself is quite stylish, while the software is fairly easy to use. Holding a 6200 mAh battery and having a rating of 7 hours of HD streaming, I found this number to be fairly accurate. I was pleased to see that Corsair included a car adapter, which will help ensure you dont run out of a charge while on the road. The other included accessories and pouch were also great..."

The Cougar Spike mini gaming tower case is a very budget friendly case, but it offers a few items you might not typically find at the lower end of the price scale. In addition to having a decent number of drive bays for a mini case, it has room for four 120mm cooling fans, a front panel USB 3.0 connection, and the matte black paint job covers all internal and external surfaces."

ROCCAT Isku FX Multicolor Gaming
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"So while the Isku FX really is a good keyboard without any obvious faults in terms of gaming, there's not quite enough here for me to want to drop 100 bones on it. That's the price territory of the much sturdier and much more mechanical Corsair K90, CM Storm Trigger, and the Rosewill RK-9000. For quite a bit cheaper, you can get any number of non-mechanical keyboards from Logitech, Razer, SteelSeries, and others."
