Razer Chimaera 5.1 Surround sound gaming headset @ Rbmods
     Sat, Feb 16 2013 | 11:19A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are in the market for a good headset there are only so many companies available, one of them is Razer which is well known for their high end gaming accessories. They sent us their Chimaera 5,1 headset that we are going to review today. This headset works for both a PC and on a Xbox 360 but the price tag is quite steep since even Newegg sells them for around 180$ so expectations are obviously high."

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Feb 16 2013 | 1:45A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to productivity while on the go, everyone is trying to get just a little bit of the growing mobile market both on the smartphone and tablet front. The problem is that not everyone can or even wants to carry around multiple devices to meet their mobile needs. That is where Samsung jumped in with its Galaxy Note; its large size falls right in between a small tablet and a large phone. The Note wasn`t the first device to do this; Dell did have their Streak, but the Note was the first to do it and be successful. "

Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 FM2 Motherboard Review Overkill for Trinity?
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 1:17P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall the GA-F2A85X-UP4 is a well rounded board with some very interesting features. It has been a solid and stable motherboard throughout testing, and the performance is right on par with the best in the industry. The price is very reasonable for what is offered and the end user can see the value that they have with all the extras built onto the board. The only problem is the CPU that is placed in it. Trinity is a good product, but it is not a great product. Enthusiasts are not flocking to it. While it is doing well in desktop applications that do not require heavy CPU power and better than average graphics, it does not require a motherboard nearly as stout as what Gigabyte offers."

Corsair Carbide Series 500R Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 11:04A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve said this before, but I am going to say it againCorsair has really made a name for themselves over the past few years. Not that long ago we only knew them for memory and now they are a top name when it comes to power supplies, cases and gaming accessories. Their entry into the case market was great and every Corsair case that I`ve reviewed I`ve enjoyed. There really has not been much I have not liked about Corsair cases. They have unique designs, good cooling and none of the unneeded crap we find on so many other cases. Today we are taking a look at the top case in their Carbide Series the Carbide 500R. This mid tower case features a sleek design, 4 included fans, USB 3.0 and 2.5-inch hard drive support, a fan controller and much more. Did I mention this case has a MSRP of $129.99. Lets check it out!"

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