PNY Prevail Elite 240GB SSD Review
     Fri, May 17 2013 | 1:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With all the talk about TLC, 20nm and other new forms of flash that reduce the number of P/E cycles - it`s nice to see one company fight against the flow. PNY`s Prevail Elite is a 10K P/E cycle SSD that uses a LSI SF-2200 Series controller."

ASUS GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost DirectCU II OC Review + SLI @ Ocaholic
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 8:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like many other manufacturers ASUS released its very own version of the GTX 650 Ti Boost using a custom design PCB and a custom cooler. The latter is a smaller and cheaper version of the now well known DirectCU II, hopefully as good as the other ones from the series. The name says by itself, the card is shipped with a factory overclocking. In this case the GPU runs 52 MHz higher than the reference model."

Samsung 9-Series NP900X4C-A02 15" Ultrabook Review
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 7:10P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Samsung's 9-Series NP900X4C-A02 notebook is the latest in a new line of Ultrabook's, a fancy name bestowed upon sleek and slim laptops that elicit envy at first glance. Design wise, Samsung have done well by their 9-Series Ultrabook; the system is wrapped in dark cobalt blue aluminum chassis that adopts many of the design elements of an Apple Macbook Air, yet posses the large screen size of a MacBook Pro (albeit with better hardware) and a sticker prices that won't cause heart failure."

Urban S71 is a full-tower chassis with minimalist styling which is typical of a case, of this calibre.

im Watch: A Smartwatch Review @ TechwareLabs
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 4:27P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The smartwatch is still a relatively new concept, and I only say that because their availability, functionality, and technology arent quite there yet for them to appear on the must have list of many consumers. However, we are seeing more and more companies throw their hat into the smartwatch ring (Apple, Microsoft, etc), and this could lead to yet another phenomenon. So, when we got word that we had a smartwatch coming in for review, I was pretty excited to get my hands on it and see what it could do. Today we will be taking a look at the im Watch by an Italian based company called im SpA."

ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU Mini OC Review @ Ocaholic
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 9:56A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
These day everybody wants to build a small form factor gaming rig. Since, the BitFenix Prodigy case came along we`re all crazy about these setups. When you actually start hunting for components for such a setup you find miniITX boards, nice cooler, obviously nice cases but when it comes to a gaming VGA, they are all way too long and disproportionate for miniITX boards. With the GTX 670 DirectCU Mini ASUS squeezed a fully fledged GTX 670 onto a PCB which is as short as a miniITX board but still the card offers a great cooler and good performance."

     Thu, May 16 2013 | 9:26A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to getting speakers sadly many people just simply go to the store and pick up what they have there and do not do any research at all. Speakers allow you to take the headphones off and share the music you are listening to. Today we are taking a look at an interesting 2.2-channel speaker system from a new company called Alien Vibes. The Alien Vibes W601 features a large dual subwoofer, dual 15-watt satellites, wooden construction and a built in card reader and USB port that you can use to play music from different devices.

Eagle Tech ET-ARHP300FS-BK Urban Zen Headphones
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 9:11A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far back as i can remember i always watched movies (who can forget the Beverly Hills Cop, Baywatch and many other blockbusters of the 80`s) with gorgeous women running at the beach in their tight gym outfits or bathing suits while listening to their favorite music using the quite famous back then SONY Walkman cassette players. In real life however and more particularly where i live (can`t really speak about other places) that trend took almost 3 full decades to get here and so it wasn`t until 3-4 years ago that i started seeing people do the same this time however the then classic Walkman has naturally been replaced with smartphones and MP3/4 players. No matter however how many new headsets we see get introduced into the market each day we don`t really see anything unique in terms of design and for people who actually want to feel well with themselves while wearing them out in the open design and appearance does play a significant role. So to cater to those needs today we will be taking a closer look at the ET-ARHP300FS-BK Urban Zen Headphones by Eagle Tech."

Cooler Master N200 @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 8:55A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the biggest down falls to having a smaller form factor case and motherboard has always been lack of room for aftermarket cooling solutions, namely water cooling. Cooler master has released the N series brand of cases, a new line that hopes to tackle the water cooling conundrum that many small form factor users are faced with. The N series is touted as a mainstream computer case aimed at the masses, a simple, cheap solution that will house all of the gaming essentials. And as an enthusiast, it might not be your next rig, but it could very well be a candidate for your next LAN rig or for a budding gamer friend."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
