Eagle Tech Neptor Foldable Portable Bluetooth Keyboard Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, May 29 2013 | 4:20P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I know many people still hate the on-screen keyboard on their devices, with tablets it has become easier but it still isnt the same as a regular hardware keyboard thats for sure. Many companies have come out with solutions to this problem and Eagle Tech is one of them with their recent launch of the Neptor ET-KB300BF-WH foldable Bluetooth portable keyboard which I have for review today. This keyboard is very stylish with leather inlays on the back of it, and of course it folds up to a small and portable size so you can just put it in your case or bag to take with you as needed. The keyboard is Bluetooth and Ive found it works with most devices, it has built-in rechargeable battery that should give you up to thirty hours of use on a single charge. When folded its about six inches long and then doubled when unfolded, so its not exactly tiny like other keyboards of this type on the market today, which is one of the things I like about it, its a nice big keyboard for usability purposes but not too big as to be overly bulky. So read on to learn more "

Enermax Triathlor FC 700W Power Supply Unit
     Wed, May 29 2013 | 4:20P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Summer may be the most exciting season for the majority of people around the world (i prefer winter slightly more) since it represents vacation time and of course endless dives in the deep blue sea (for some people anyways) but due to the extreme heat waves it`s also without doubt the worst season when it comes to pretty much everything electronic and mechanical from TVs, refrigerators and PC hardware up to heavy industrial, car and bike engines. The Summer period is also one of the main reasons as to why we always recommend high quality and performance CPU Coolers and power supply units to people and since June is almost upon us we decided to spend a little bit more time over some of the latest power supply units to hit the market such as the Triathlor FC 700W by Enermax."

OCZ Vertex 3.20 240GB Solid State Drive Review @ OCIA.net
     Wed, May 29 2013 | 2:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The key difference this time around, however, is the selection of MLC NAND. As the name indicates, the Vertex 3.20 uses 20nm MLC NAND compared to the larger 25nm / 34nm variants found on the original Vertex 3. It`s part of a market-wide push for smaller flash across the board. That aside, everything else under the hood remains virtually the same although LSI now owns SandForce.?"

Promised to deliver at least 10 MB/s, the 64GB Kingston microSDXC card packs plenty of storage space for your mobile devices. For a 64GB microSD expandable storage for your mobile device, it also priced quite competitively at $60, and the included SD adapter makes it versatile so that you can share it with other devices such as PC. Can the card deliver? Lets find out."

EagleTech ET-NP100K Neptor 10000mAh External Battery Pack Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, May 29 2013 | 10:16A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review Ive got one of the newest products from EagleTech that really doesnt have any fancy name, its simply called the Neptor External Battery Pack. There are a few things that separate this portable battery pack from others on the market today. The first of them being the rather large 10,000mAh battery thats inside of it that can charge most anything from phones to tablets. The second thing, and one of the most important I think, is the battery is user replaceable. The third thing that separates this from others out there is the fact that you dont need any special tips or adapters, so theres no additional cost. Some battery packs on the market are pricey initially, but then you have to go and spend more money on different tips for all the devices you would like to charge. You can easily end up spending close to or as much as the battery pack itself just on tips. The Neptor battery pack works very well at charging basically anything that can be charged over USB without the need for adapters and it has two USB ports, one with 2.1a and one with .5a output. So read on to learn more about what I think is one of the best portable power solutions on the market today"

Posted by: STAFF
1.html,Today we test and review a GeForce GTX 780 from EVGA, the SC ACX edition specifically. The Superclocked model comes with a nice factory tweak and that all new Sleeve bearing fan based ACX cooler. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more."

EVGA has engineered a new cooler for their GeForce GTX 780, called ACX - Active Cooling Xtreme. In our testing this dual-fan design delivers great temperatures and noise levels that match the quiet NVIDIA reference design. The GTX 780 SC ACX is also overclocked, which yields performance higher than GTX Titan."

Oregon Scientific ATC9K Action Camera
     Wed, May 29 2013 | 8:21A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even less than a decade ago action cameras were pretty much nonexistent so people actually had to mount normal handheld camcorders onto their bodies (helmets, hands, waist) and vehicles something which was neither very easy nor convenient due to size, weight and of course durability issues/limitations (especially for use with Xtreme sports). With the introduction of action cameras a few years back this changed and so now people can actually record up to FullHD content via very small and extremely durable camcorders which are also quite affordable (always compared to their full sized cousins). GoPro and Contour are without doubt the first two names that immediately come to mind when talking about action cameras but they are far from the only manufacturers around and so naturally with the obvious increase of sales in that segment of the market several manufacturers have joined as well. One of them is Oregon Scientific and today we will be testing their ATC9K FullHD 1080p Water Proof Action Camera."

240GB OCZ Vertex 3.20 Solid State Drive @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, May 28 2013 | 7:40P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ Technology launched their Vertex 3 solid state drive based on the second-generation LSI-SandForce SF-2281 processor back in early 2011, making it a familiar storage product among high-performance enthusiasts. Two years later they`ve revisited the popular design, and made several improvements. Now available with 20nm Synchronous Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash components, Vertex 3.20 is designed to offer better performance for less cost. Vertex 3.20 arrives in 120GB and 240GB capacities, both offering 550 MB/s reads and 520 MB/s writes. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the 240GB OCZ Vertex 3.20 SSD (model VTX3-25SAT3-240G.20), and compares it against both the 120GB model as well as the fastest SATA 6GB/s storage solutions available."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
