Kingston Class 10 128GB SDXC Card Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 8:56A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 128GB Kingston SDXC card has been evaluated to write at speeds above 14MB/s and read at speeds approaching 40MB/s. This is pretty good performance, but its by no means the fastest card. Serious photographers may be interested in seeing that write speed higher to ensure that their technnology doesn`t keep them from getting the shots they want!"

Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 8:56A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A great headset will change the way you think about sound. It all started when I upgraded to a Sapphire Radeon 7970. As it turns out, this dual-slot graphics card extended just enough to prevent the installation of my aftermarket sound card in the only remaining PCI slot. The Razer Carcharias headset I was using just didn`t sound the same with onboard sound, so it was off to find another solution - so I returned the 7970 and all was good. HA! Like any of us here at Benchmark Reviews would miss out on a perfectly valid chance to upgrade... Truth be told, I still felt like something was missing in my computing experience, so I set out to find another headset that would enhance the audio I enjoy - a worthy compliment to the enhanced visuals afforded by the Radeon 7970. That brings us to the Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset - ladies and gentlemen, lend me your ears..."

Posted by: STAFF
In Windows 8, it`s still true that Internet Explorer 10, leads a double life. You can run it as a new-style full screen app or you can run it in the traditional Windows desktop view. Underneath, however, both of these as well as the Windows 7 edition use the same rendering engine. Currenty, the Windows 7 version is dubbed a preview, and it`s available for download."

Tech News: ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T 32GB Tablet Review
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 7:41A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS is widely known for producing computer parts and peripherals, but rarely do they indulge in anything pre-made. Introduce the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T, and now we have seemingly one of the first ASUS products in the mobile market. Frankly speaking, it makes sense for ASUS to dive into tablets. They already produce premium lines of business and gaming laptops, so tablets are the next logical direction. It certainly doesn`t become a question as to whether ASUS can make their name in the market, but rather how well. Tablets aren`t perfect devices by any means, but some are better than others. The little things matter at the end as they define which tablet is the perfect buy. ASUS is regarded as a highly reputable company, but that alone cannot carry them from consumer scrutiny."

CM Storm Recon Mouse with Skorpion Bungee Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 11:25P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CM Storm Recon Mouse uses an Avago 3090 optical sensor similar to the CM Storm Spawn mouse. The CM Storm Recon however is designed to be ambidextrous with its symmetrical design, including left and right back/forward side buttons. The surface of the CM Storm Recon is rubber coated for extra grip while the buttons utilize high-grade Japanese Omron micro-switches for longevity and responsiveness. Additional features such as lift-off distance adjustment, LED customization, macro recording, polling rate change, button re-assignments, and profile management can be unlocked upon installing the Recon software. The CM Storm Skorpion on the other hand is a mouse bungee for holding mouse cords in place and prevents cable dragging while playing. The CM Storm Skorpion has an iron core for weighted stability and three legs with rubber soles positioned in a wide stance for desktop grip. Both the CM Storm Recon mouse and CM Storm Skorpion carry a 2-year warranty."

SSD NEWS: Kingston 200GB SSDNow E100 Enterprise SSD Review - Kingston Gets Back to the Enterprise
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 6:30P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston, like other memory manufacturers, wanted to get into the solid state storage game a few years back. At the time they chose to partner with Intel, offering their own label on the chipmaker`s first gen SSDs like enterprise-oriented X25-E. Eventually, they branched out with new controllers from Toshiba and JMicron, resulting in a bewildering array of options. More recently, Kingston switched to second generation SandForce ASICs for the original HyperX, eventually leading to a host of SF-powered offerings for consumer and businesses alike. Part of what made the original HyperX such an interesting product was its use of 5,000PE cycle-rated flash. Due to their longstanding relationship with Intel, Kingston was able to get their hands on Intel`s special stash of 25nm NAND rated at 5K PE cycles for the first HyperX. That drive, and the more value conscious 3K model which followed, went on to become incredibly popular with enthusiasts. Now with the E100, Kingston has come full circle. Unlike Kingston`s first enterprise drive based on the X25-E, there isn`t a trace of Intel flash or controllers to be found. Unlike the client driven SandForce products that make up the rest of Kingston`s solid state drive portfolio, the E100 is targeted strictly at the enterprise market. Using 30,000 PE cycle-rated Toshiba eMLC and an enterprise-class SF-2582 flash storage processor, the E100 brings both endurance and enterprise features to the table."

RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-3640SU3 USB 3.0 Quad Bay Enclosure Review
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 5:28P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nowadays most people own quite large digital media collections and that is the main reason behind the need we have for large capacity hard disk drives (aside for backup purposes always).However single external HDDs are not really the solution to that since they do take quite a bit of space and if you get more than just one you will also have to use more than just one connection port (if you want to have access to all of them at the same time). External docking stations do work well and in some occasions even better than many enclosures out there but with such solutions your drives are unprotected and again most only have two docks. Now there aren`t really that many external enclosures available currently out there with more than just 2 bays and the ones that are available are quite expensive for consumer use but lucky for us the market grows each day and so RaidSonic decided to release their very own ICY BOX IB-3640SU3 USB 3.0 4 bay JBOD external enclosure."

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