SAPPHIRE VID-2X Video Expansion Device Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 9:01A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire`s VID-2X is a plug and play compact device that was designed to extend your existing monitor into one large field of view, in effect, tricking the system and allowing you to add two additional monitors to your system from just one display port, be it a laptop, netbook, home computer, or office PC. The VID-2X from Sapphire accomplishes this without you having to install any software or drivers. In addition, the VID-2X will make use of the video card installed and, without using system resources, maintain a resolution or output in clone mode of up to 1920 x 1280. The VID-2X offers several connection options using your existing cable option of DVI, with cables included, and once installed, will double your field of view. The Sapphire VID-2X will also adapt to VGA or HDMI display ports with adapters you may have on hand with your existing system. ///"

Antec HCG-620M 620 W @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec recently added three new units to their High Current Gamer series. The main difference between these new PSUs and the older ones is that the first utilize a semi-modular cabling design, becoming this way the first members of this series to incorporate this feature. Today we will test the HCG-620M with 620W capacity."

XFX Radeon HD 7770 Black Edition S Super Overclocked 1GB Video Card Review
     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 8:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like the other HD 7000 series cards we`ve looked at, XFX was one of the first samples to arrive and for that reason we`ll be checking out their offering first. Following along with the Black Edition theme that we`ve been seeing from them, this one goes a step further with the Black Edition S Super Overclocked naming scheme. What makes it so super overclocked? Well we don`t know yet, but we`ll find out soon enough. Before we do that, though, there are a few things we need to do. First we want to see what`s going on with the package, XFX hasn`t done too bad here lately and we hope moving down to a lower price bracket card doesn`t impact the bundle too much."

GreenSmart Markhor Laptop Sleeve @ Techreaction.net
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 5:34P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From a company who is serious about saving the environment comes a line of gear for transporting your laptops. GreenSmart has sent us their Markhor laptop sleeve, which is named after a large species of wild goat in northeastern Afghanistan that is also endangered. The Markhor is aimed at being your perfect lightweight solution for carrying your laptop and all the accessories. Their design started with accommodating the power brick for your laptop, then moved onto two sizes of pockets, one bigger, one smaller to ensure the bag can carry all your laptop accessories. On the back they put a full width slash pocket for a magazine, folders or notepad. For laptop protection, they reinforced the padding in the bottom two corners and right in the middle, so if you accidentally set down your laptop too hard, it should stay safe. They used vertical quilting from their softest liner fabric on the inside to guide your laptop in and out easily. On the bottles 2 bags count, 11-13 bottles get a second life in the making of this laptop sleeve. Now, lets? move on and see if the bottles were put to good use ?"

Posted by: STAFF
Other World Computing or OWC as most people call them is a company you may or may not have heard of. They have been around since 1988 and are one of the premier brands of upgrade and enhancement products for Apple devices.

By the name you can guess this is a solid state drive and it boasts speeds of 559MB/s read and 527MB/s write. Let?s see how it stands up to the other big names in the SSD market."

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 4:47P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?At 16 megapixels, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 features the highest resolution of any Micro Four Thirds camera. It has some nice features that should appeal to enthusiasts, but it doesn`t do well at the higher ISO settings and is bundled with a lens that can`t keep up with the camera.?"

Azza Fusion 3000 Full Tower Chassis Review @ OCIA.net
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 1:21P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The PC case market is one that is hard to stand out in but of course that doesn`t stop manufacturers from trying. We have only reviewed one other Azza case before, the Solano 1000 way back in 2009, but we generally came away impressed with it. In reading up on their history, I discovered that at one time Azza offered mainboards in addition to their PSU line. They aren?t in the mainboard market anymore but have a variety of chassis and PSU offerings such as the Fusion 3000 that we will be taking a look at here today.?"

BIOSTAR TPower X79 Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 11:17A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I just mentioned the BIOSTAR TPower X79 is the lowest cost motherboard that we have looked at for the Intel X79 chipset. We were comparing the BIOSTAR TPower X79 to boards like the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme, GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 and the ASRock X79 Extreme9 that we looked at last week. Each of these boards is at least 150% the cost of the BIOSTAR TPower X79 motherboard. Sure, the performance of the BIOSTAR TPower X79 was a little lower compared to these more expensive boards, but not enough that you would a difference in the day to day operation of your system..."

Core i7-2600K and Core i5-2500K Radeon HD 7970 Gaming-Performance-Difference @ ocaholic
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 11:17A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this article we`re going to check gaming performance of Intels LGA 1155 Sandy Brdige CPUs when they`re being supported by a Radeon HD 7970 graphics card from XFX. We`re curious if there will be a measurable performance gap between these two CPUs regarding modern games or if the 100 MHz and the absence of hyperthreading on the Core i5-2500K don`t even have an influence on gaming performance."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
