LanOC v15.0 Recap @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Oct 04 2014 | 8:58A | Gossip | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I arrived at the LanOC office around 1:00 AM or so Friday morning to join Chad, Debo, and Wes in an informal review of what would be the next few days, better known as LanOC v15.0. We quickly decided, influenced largely by late-night appetites, that it was a discussion better had over food. Van Wert is not known for its nightlife, so we started out East (the way I had just came) in search of food. We found ourselves at a Dennys off of US 30, conversing with the third shift waitress about how Debo reminded her of her daughter (they both hate everything). With full stomachs, a game plan, and most importantly a new nickname for Debo (Shelby), we returned home before the sun came up to catch a few hours of sleep."

iolo Technologies System Mechanic PC Tune-Up Software Quick Look
     Fri, Mar 07 2014 | 9:01A | Gossip | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PC maintenance is one of the most overlooked aspects of owning and using a Windows-based computer system. Just like any other "machine", your PC requires regular and periodic maintenance in order to keep it performing at its optimum levels, and to extend its useful life. Microsoft has incorporated quite a number of diagnostic and maintenance tools into modern Windows operating systems such as Windows 7 and Windows 8, however accessing many of these can be a tad difficult for less experienced users. By utilizing a third-party software solution, you can simplify the ability to utilize these tools to repair, optimize and protect your PC. Iolo Technologies' System Mechanic PC Tune-Up software can do exactly this, and much more.

SteelSeries Siberia Elite @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Dec 29 2013 | 8:59A | Gossip | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its really hard to believe that the SteelSeries Siberia v2s that we know and love have been out for over four years now. In that time most of you have rebuilt your PC at least once, have played countless game, and even lived through the Harlem Shake and Gangnam Style. So after all of that, Im not surprised that SteelSeries is finally introducing another Siberia model to sell alongside of the v2. I have been looking forward to seeing what SteelSeries could do with their latest Siberia headset, lets dive in and see what they are all about and see if they live up to their Elite name."

Toshiba MQ01ACF050 500GB SATA III HDD
     Sun, Dec 22 2013 | 4:37P | Gossip | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When the first 2.5 (15mm thick) drives were unveiled to the world roughly 20 years ago the popularity of 3.5 ones thanks to their highest capacities and performance didn`t leave much room for debate regarding which form factor was best. In the end it wasn`t until several years later with the introduction of the next-gen portable personal computers (laptops) that use of 2.5 drives was deemed necessary mostly because of their size. Today things have changed quite a bit however and although 2.5 drives are still the number 1 choice for notebook manufacturers due to their small size (5-9.5mm thick), lower temperature levels and lower electrical demands they are also starting to take the place of their larger 3.5 brothers both in regular personal computers and in data intense application environments (enterprise-class). Because of that the leading manufacturers are dishing out many new models based on the 2.5 form factor for use with regular laptops, ultra-thin ones and of course with portable enclosures. Lately Toshiba introduced their latest MQ01ACF050 500GB 2.5 SATA III hard disk drive aimed towards casual users and as always we got out hands on one to see what it has to offer.

The Witcher 5-Years Later Review
     Fri, Dec 13 2013 | 4:37P | Gossip | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s interesting to look back at a game that started a franchise still loved today. You know it has earned respect, but you also know that time changes how we think of things. Years ago and years from now, a good, quality game is still a good, quality game. Despite its age, The Witcher represents a very solid and enjoyable experience that I would easily recommend to anyone interested in the franchise or in the role-playing game genre. Sure the graphics are not mind-blowing now, but forgive it its wrinkles and enjoy what it offers you. Besides, it can be nice to play a game that does not cause every fan in your computer to spin up to full speed."

ROCCAT Kone Pure Optical Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Nov 25 2013 | 10:58A | Gossip | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The smaller body was nice for my smaller hands (many of you might not like this as much) and just grew to my liking with each use. The tight scroll wheel is still one of my favorites and makes every other mouse feel sloppy in that aspect. The customizable coloring allows me to change the mood of the office or match up with my other hardware. It`s really just an added feature; no real function other than fun. Ultimately I wanted to find something really wrong with this mouse, as my general tone for ROCCAT is always ugh, another one to review; but, in this case it has earned its place. The ROCCAT Kone Pure Optical is a great mouse! If you feel it`s a little high in cost, it`s definitely worth the wait for a Newegg coupon or a good sale at your retailer; it really is worth it!"

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.
