Corsair Neutron GTX 240 GB Review - XSReviews
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 3:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the effects of the Thailand floods finally behind us and more manufacturers joining the SSD party, the SSD market has become quite competitive. We recently looked at two Plextor SSDs that provided an impressive amount of power, and now we`re looking at another top tier SSD, the Corsair Neutron GTX, that promises to be one of the fastest SSDs on the market. We`ll test the truth of that statement in this review -- let`s get into it! A link to the article would be much appreciated."

ZooGue Genius Pro iPad Case @ Techreaction.net
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 11:15A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ZooGue Case Genius Pro is a great case cover for the iPad. It is perfectly designed and fits our iPad like a glove! The hard leather case will keep your precious iPad safe safe from the basic hits and falls. With the velcro strips on the top of the lid, it makes it easy to adjust the viewing angle to your liking. The ability to bring this case on road trips and install it to your headrest for people in the backseat, is a huge plus! Honestly, this is the first time we have heard of ZooGue, but if their other products and future products are this high of quality, this wont be an unknown name for long."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Review @ Techgage
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 10:28A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of its GeForce GTX 660, NVIDIA has delivered what we feel to be one of the most attractive Kepler offerings to date. It may be a step-down from the Ti edition released last month, but the GTX 660 delivers great performance across the board, and priced at $229, it won`t break the bank."

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (XBOX 360) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:28A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (XBOX 360) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com There is no doubt that Tekken is one of the most well known fighting game franchises of all time. With roots stretching back as far as 1994s original arcade game the series was, for a large portion of its existence, a title associated with the PlayStation brand. Times have changed though and nowadays almost everything is multi-format and Tekken is no different, first hitting the XBOX 360 in 2009."

G.Skill TridentX DDR3-2400 8GB Dual Channel Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:16A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This time around were taking a look at G.Skills TridentX series. Starting at 2133Mhz and going all the way up to 2800Mhz, the TridentX Series is brutally fast. A black and red theme well suited to ASUS ROG series or ASRocks Fatal1ty series, it looks awesome if youre the kind of person who likes oversized or extreme styling. The kit G.Skill have sent us is the middle of the spectrum; 2400Mhz, yet its only CAS 10 speeds, with high speeds with such low latency this kit promises to be a strong performer. Lets check it out!"

GeForce 9800 GT vs GeForce 660 GTX review
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:16A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We place the GeForce 9800 GT vs GeForce 660 GTX in a quick four page article slash review. Demographics show that a lot of end-users who purchased their PC a couple of years ago very likely still have that GeForce 9800 GT. NVIDIA`s demographics show that the people that are still using that card (and apparently it is a lot of them) are bound to upgrade, and the most logical step is the GeForce TX 660. So why not have a quick peek at how these two cards performs -- the old versus the new. Read the article here."

Giada Mini PC A51 Review @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:16A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I always thought an HTPC had to be a big, basically full sized computer, or at least something with at least a microATX motherboard in it with a standard video card along with a decent CPU. My thoughts on that have changed recently since Ive got to spend some time with the product Ive got for review today which is the Giada Mini PC A51. This little PC is whats called a Nettop as its close to a Netbook really but its not portable. The A51 features an AMD T56N CPU with a Radeon HD 6320 integrated graphics chip which is capable of 1080P playback on your HDTV via the built-in HDMI connection. The A51 also has built-in wi-fi, Ethernet and Bluetooth so youve got connection choices as well, its also Windows 7 compatible and to top it off it only uses 30 watts of power. The A51 is very small, you can easily hide it among your other home theater components or even mount it to the back of a monitor if you want to use it as a regular PC for everyday use. So read on to learn about an inexpensive Mini PC that would make a great addition to any home theater setup or it could be used as a light duty computer for your everyday needs. "

Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review one more Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 it is the Windforce OC model The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Windforce OC comes with a dual-slot Windforce cooler that is incredibly silent yet manages to keep the card at very cool temps, and it`s even factory overclocked for you. Have a peek as this card should be somewhere at the top of you list. Combined with Ulra Durable component selection you may expect something long-lasting and well performing. "

GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H Motherboard Review @ Techgage
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:16A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For its $180 pricing, GIGABYTE packs quite a bit into its Z77X-UD5H. For starters, it includes 9 internal SATA ports, 4x USB 3.0 ports at the back, and not four, but five internal 4-pin fan headers. On top of it all, there`s an mSATA option and three internal USB 3.0 headers. Does the rest of the board meet our newfound expectations?"

Gimbal multiplayer spaceship shooter Review - XSReviews
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:16A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve got two big loves in video gaming: multiplayer shooters and spaceship creation. The former has a near constant indulgence with series like Battlefield, Call of Duty and Team Fortress, but the latter is one that I haven`t really enjoyed since 1998?s Star Trek: Starship Creator. Never before have I experienced such a compelling crossover of the two genres as Gimbal, an indie title produced by Colin Clark`s 8888888 Labs in Michigan. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Posted by: STAFF
Guild Wars, the hugely successful subscription-free fantasy MMO, now has its first sequel: Guild Wars 2. The developers promise a divergence from traditional MMO formulas, including those used by the original. Does this new direction herald a new era of how we play MMOs, or is this an experiment that`s gone awry?"

HD 7990 Review; PowerColors Devil 13 @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:16A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s HD 7990 has finally been released, though not in the way some expected. Instead of an official launch, the HD 7990 moniker has been attached to a massively powerful dual GPU card from PowerColor called the Devil 13. Priced at $1000 and boasting a pair of Tahiti XT cores, it promises high performance but is the result really worth the cost of entry?"

Hydra 31 HDMI Cable Switch Review @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:10A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HDTVs and home theaters system are great, most of us have one and mostly everything these days is HDMI which is nice as its just one simple connection for everything. What isnt nice is the fact that you can quickly run out of HDMI connections on your TV, I know I did so I run a few through the home theater stereo system and I found thats still not enough for everything I have. I found myself having to manually unplug and then plug in the device I want to use at times or use an alternate connection method like composite for said devices. Up for review today I have the Sewell Hydra 31 HDMI Cable Switch that allow you to connect three HDMI devices to one HDMI connection on your HDTV or theater system. The Hydra consists of four cables, three input and one output with a very small push button switch in the middle and the best part is that it doesnt need an external power source. So read on to learn more "

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