     Fri, Mar 23 2012 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink

The new Cerwin-Vega! XD3
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's not very often that I get to use and enjoy a review item while working on the actual review, but that's exactly what I'm doing as I sit here listening to my favorite music. The new Cerwin-Vega! XD3 Powered Desktop Speakers have been designed to optimize sound quality while keeping the enclosures small and providing easy integration with your PC and other desktop accessories at an affordable price. The XD3 desktop speakers incorporate ¾" silk dome tweeters, 3" woofers, high-quality cross-overs, and a 15W per channel internal amplifier in solid wood (MDF) enclosures.

Lexmark OfficeEdge Pro5500 Review at Overclockers
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I was converted over to the laser printer world for many years and never seriously looked at inkjets since the days of my old HP 840C. With the OfficeEdge Pro5500 I have to seriously consider them again for the work place. The Lexmark OfficeEdge Pro5500 pulls off what many similar laser printers can’t do: consistent fast high quality prints and copies. I managed a respectable 15.8ppm when printing a black text document and 9.38ppm when printing a color text document.

HP dm4t Beats Edition Notebook Review: Branding Gone Wild
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 8:56A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If performance was our only consideration this would be a positive review. Unfortunately for the dm4t it?s not, so this isn?t. The dm4t?s roots as an inexpensive consumer laptop are evident in the design and build quality. That?s not to say that either is bad ? in fact, both are good for a laptop that starts at $579, which is the base price of the normal dm4t. But our review unit isn?t priced at $579."

Zotac ZBOX ID80 Plus Mini PC Review
     Sat, Mar 10 2012 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Zotac is emerging as a major player in the mini PC market and you'll find a boatload of ZBOX units if you visit the company's website. The one we have with us today is the ZBOX ID80 Plus, one of the newer units built around Intel's recently released Atom "Cedar Trail" refresh. It comes equipped with an Intel Atom D2700 processor, 2GB of DDR3-1066 RAM, 320GB hard drive, and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M GPU. There's also onboard Wi-Fi, Gigabit LAN, HDMI output, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 support, and an IR receiver with a media remote bundled in. All this and quite a bit more comes packed in a diminutive box that measures 7.40 inches x 7.40 inches x 1.73 inches that you can plop inconspicuously into your A/V rack or attach to the back of your HDTV via its VESA monitor mount...

Dell XPS 13 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:45P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell XPS 13 is a 13-inch ultrabook that is extremely good-looking and sturdy. While it is entering both a crowded and emerging category of computers, it does a lot of set itself apart from the rest of the pack. It has an extremely thin footprint, a glass-covered screen and an SSD hard drive."

Building The SHIFT, Maingear's DIY Kit Explored
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 4:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Maingear computers first stepped out with their high-end SHIFT line of gaming and workstation PCs, we took note and were genuinely impressed; a bit of rarefied air if you will. It wasn't so much the component selection that stood out, but it was the excellent build quality and the SHIFT's 90-degree rotated layout that caused our double-take, and ultimately put Maingear on the map as a major player in the space. Maingear's products may not be the low price watermark, but they definitely set the high quality bar up a notch or three. Recently Maingear announced that they'd be offering a DIY SHIFT chassis and cooling system kit for a limited time, to folks that might want to try their hand at building a SHIFT-infused PC for themselves. We tried our hand at building our very own SHIFT and will step through the process with you here...

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
