XPAND YOUniversal Electronic 3D Eyewear Review @MissingRemote
     Sun, Jul 08 2012 | 9:10A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We last visited the topic of universal active 3D glasses technology with our XPAND X103 review. With the introduction of the Full HD 3D Glasses standard in 2012 stereoscopic 3D products, the display and eyewear industry have matured away from the mish-mash of proprietary communication mechanisms. Standard-compliant products can utilize radio frequency (RF) and/or infrared (IR) for the communication link between displays and glasses. In theory, any vendors glasses complying with the standard will work with any standard-compliant display (so long as each product has the same logo, e.g. Full HD 3D RF or Full HD 3D IR). *"

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sun, Jul 08 2012 | 9:10A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston`s new HyperX 3K 240GB has been fighting an uphill battle from the day it was first introduced. Drives sporting its integral SandForce SF 2281 have been on the market for the better part of a year and many are well established while selling at lower price points. But Kingston does have some tricks up their collective sleeves which may allow yet another cookie-cutter drive stand apart from the competition.* *"

Patriot PBO Alpine Android 2.2 Media Player Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Jul 07 2012 | 4:25P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the PBO Alpine, Patriot is taking a 1080p HD Media Player and adding in the flexibility and stability of the Android 2.2 OS teamed with an ARM926 processor. The Android OS takes the PBO Alpine to levels we have not seen in a simple, stand-alone media player, adding the capability to side load thousands of apps to tailor the experience to exactly your liking. Straight out of the box, the PBO Alpine offers a rich and powerful set of features, and keeps it all contained into a very simple installation and interface. The unit itself is very uncluttered, with HDMI, and optical and stereo mini audio outputs, as well as two USB 2.0, Ethernet and optional WiFi (through USB) to connect directly to USB media and your network. An SD card slot is onboard for additional storage for apps and media, and can also be used as a media input should you wish to pull a card directly from your camera/video recorder and view instantly.///"

     Sat, Jul 07 2012 | 4:08P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair GS800 Gaming Series Power Supply Review @ HardwareHeaven.com A little over a year ago we took a look at Corsair`s latest mid-range PSU. Based on a CWT design and aimed at gamers the GS800 offered a nice balance of price and performance mixed with a design standing out a little. Time and the market move on though and now Corsair are back with a revised GS800 featuring new chassis, internal design and in theory, improved performance."

Palo Alto Audio Design Cubik Speakers Review @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Jul 07 2012 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Built in computer speakers especially in Apple products tend to sound weak and lack punch. Todays review item is designed to address this issue while adding some style as well. Palo Alto Audio Design created the Cubik speaker system to provide hi-fi audio to your MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Mini or Mac Pro machines. These speakers can also be used with PCs but Palo Alto seems to be primarily targeting the Apple market. "

CM Storm Quick Fire Pro Gaming Keyboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Jul 07 2012 | 12:04P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Arming the gaming revolution is a phrase Cooler Master coined when debuting the CM Storm brand. The first CM Storm product I had the joy of using was the Spawn gaming mouse. I won the Spawn gaming mouse at the largest LAN party the state of NJ has ever had the privilege of hosting, The GXL. If youve ever seen the Spawn mouse it looks quite the opposite of impressive. It comes in a small box and is cheaply priced. Honestly, I wasnt expecting much. When I first opened the product I thought I was looking at another gimmicky product and if youve ever read any of the reviews in the past you know how I feel about products like that. It reminded me of a bear claw, yes, the pastry. After about 5 minutes of use on my work laptop my opinion couldnt have been more different compared to the moment the box was originally handed to me. The Spawn is one hell of a gaming mouse. By far, the best $40 mouse Ive ever used. So, when Bob asked me to take a look at the CM Storm Quick Fire Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard I was very enthusiastic about the opportunity. I dont have much history with Cooler Masters line of products and only thing that I consistently purchased from Cooler Master was aftermarket CPU coolers, considered to be some of the best in the industry. But, now that all these component companies are diving full force into the gaming peripheral market and Im truly excited to see what the Storm will bring (pun intended)."
