Crucial V4 256GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 3:43P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* *At first glance the Crucial V4 256GB is the antithesis of current SSDs since it fails to deliver convincing performance wins over its brethren. However, the V4 still provides HDD-destroying benchmark numbers and 256GB of capacity alongside a price of under $180. * *"

HIS Radeon HD 7970 X Turbo edition review
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 3:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the HIS Radeon HD 7970 X Turbo edition. With this card they took the new Tahiti XT2 and redesigned the R7970 board from ground up. though very long the end result is a 31cm PCB with mane power phases and optimizations. Fun to see are the voltage and FAN monitor LED options. Most impressive however is the sheer amount of monitor connectors HIS injected into this product, four DisplayPort connectors, one HDMI and a DVI connector. If needed you can go for Eyefinity6. Oh did I mention already that the factory set boost clock frequency is 1180 MHz ? Read the full review here"

Mede8er MED1000X3D review – 3D media player
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Mede8er MED1000X3D has left us with a mixed impression, which is true for most recent media players that we've reviewed. On the positive side there are lots of features, the menu is well-organised and user-friendly and reacts quickly to input from the remote. The build quality is solid, and it supports most file formats. If we can be candid for a moment, we hope that Mede8er will make a future media player based on a chip from a different manufacturer. Mede8er has proven time and again it listens to the end user, and that it has a development team that is able to make the most of what they have to work with. The number of alternatives to the Realtek platform is much greater now than in 2008, when Mede8er was known for creating low-cost products.

Cooler Master Silencio 650 Case Review
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master unveiled a variety of new products last March during the CeBIT tradeshow, but few caught our attention like the Silencio 650 did. Not only does it resemble a cleaner version of Cooler Master's more aggressive HAF series, but it touts many attractive features, chief among which is sound absorbing foam mats and specially designed air vents to minimize noise while maintaining low operating temps. The Silencio's ability to muffle high-end hardware is undoubtedly its key selling point, but there's plenty more to see here. Other noteworthy features include a "DualBoot HDD Switch" for toggling between OSes, a fan speed controller, a memory card reader, 1amp USB 3.0 ports for charging smartphones and tablets, as well as X-Dock, Cooler Master's hot-swappable 2.5"/3.5" HDD/SSD drive bay.

Samsung WB850F Digital Camera
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 11:58A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The solution to the problem of wanting more advanced camera features without the large size of an SLR or CSC camera is where Samsung`s latest WB850F fits right in. The WB850F is an extended 21x zoom camera that isn`t much larger than a high end point-and-shoot but it offers advanced functionality such as full manual and program modes, WiFi and GPS, a pop-up flash and control over your pictures usually only associated with an SLR or CSC camera. Did I mention the WB850F will still fit comfortably in your pocket for easy travel?"

Convar BytePac Eco-Friendly Paper Hard Drive Enclosure Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 11:52A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those that go out of their way to minimize impacts on the environment, this is a no-brainer. According to Convar, the average hard drive plastic case is produced using 350ml of crude oil. Cardboard is also much more cost-effective in terms of manufacturing so the cost for the kit we reviewed is very reasonable at $55.93. Frankly, the cables alone are worth that much and are all covered by a generous 5-year warranty. Overall, it`s very innovative, works as advertised, and we really have nothing negative to say about our experience with the BytePac. .."

Phenom II x4 970 & Phenom II x6 1090T BE - Gaming Performance HD 7970 @ ocaholic
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 11:44A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This week, as a lot of readers wanted us to do, we tested the gaming performance of the Phenom II x4 and Phenom II x6 coupled with an AMD Radeon HD 7970. Which brings our comparison tables to a new level having 2 Phenoms, 2 Bulldozers, 2 Core 2 and an Ivy Bridge CPU in there. We hope this starts to give you an overview of processors` gaming performance under recent 3D games with a high end graphics card and maximum graphics settings possible at a resolution of 1920x1080. Unfortunately no overclocking this time nor most popular Phenoms - we did with what we had - aka a Phenom II x4 970 and a Phenom II x6 1090T BE. Anyway let`s see what the results are!"

Quad-Core ODROID-X Battles NVIDIA Tegra 3
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 10:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While not as popular as NVIDIA`s Tegra 3 ARM SoC, the Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 found on cheaply priced ODROID-X can actually outperform the quad-core NVIDIA ARM processor. Here are benchmarks of the $129 USD ODROID-X benchmarked against the NVIDIA Tegra 3 reference tablet and a PandaBoard ES running the Texas Instruments OMAP4460."
