Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition Review
     Mon, Dec 25 2017 | 10:38P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we looked at Dell's Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition gaming desktop earlier this year, the machine was still technically in a pre-production state. Though we took you on a preliminary guided tour of the system, we felt it premature to look at it under our full-review lens. At that point we were still doing emergency alien brain transplants on it, after all, bringing the machine we had up to production silicon specs. Dell's Alienware team was still putting the finishing touches on system firmware and some new peripherals to accompany their latest gaming desktops. So, we are back here again today to revisit the Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition, in what can now be considered its final, retail-ready incarnation. Go ahead and try to load this thing down. We did and the Area-51 Threadripper Edition just shrugged it all off; no sweat.

VertDesk v3 Electric Sit Stand Desk Review
     Sun, Dec 17 2017 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We are always talking about different hardware and accessories for your PC, but it is not often we talk about a desk. When you think about it your computer desk is one of the most important parts of your PC setup. If you don’t like your desk or something is messed up with it, it throws everything off. Sit to stand desks have become extremely popular over the past few years. There are so many reports on how sitting all day is bad for you. So being able to stand most of the day and sit down when you start to fatigue is a good thing. The VertDesk is an electric sit to stand desk that is on its third iteration now and is said to be extremely sturdy. It is offered in a bunch of different configurations, but we are going to tell you about the one we were sent. Let’s take a look…"

Eve V Review: A Crowdfunded Surface Pro Competitor
     Thu, Dec 07 2017 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For a first-generation product, the Eve V is remarkably solid. It's especially impressive when you consider its direct competition - the Surface Pro - is well entrenched in the Windows tablet market and known to be an excellent option. From my experience with the Eve V so far, it's not just a great competitor to the Surface Pro: it is a better option in several ways.

Dell XPS 13 (2017) With Kaby Lake R Review
     Sat, Nov 11 2017 | 12:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell has not done much to tweak the physical design of its XPS 13 laptop over the past couple years, though it's not out of laziness or complacency. The past few models have exemplified excellence in engineering, with the size and weight of the XPS 13 belying what lays in wait when you crack open the lid. Its InfinityEdge display all but eliminates the bezel and delivers a larger-than-expected viewing area based on the laptop's overall dimensions, and the hardware powering it has, for the most part, been cutting edge.

Dell Inspiron 27 7000 All-In-One Review
     Fri, Nov 10 2017 | 1:42P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell has continued to push the recent design innovations of its premium XPS family further down its product stack, in an effort to enhance its mainstream consumer products as well. When we reviewed Dell’s XPS 27 7760 All-in-One desktop PC earlier this year, we were impressed with its performance, features, and design aesthetic, including its impressive sound system. Continuing that effort to marry both form and function, we received the new Dell Inspiron 27 7000 All-in-One desktop for review. It turns out this system was the winner of a 2017 COMPUTEX Design and Innovation Award, but it has been updated since then. The model we have in for testing happens to be powered by something new and innovative from AMD under its hood...

CORSAIR Commander PRO Build Review
     Mon, Oct 30 2017 | 6:59P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The CORSAIR Commander PRO controller makes your live easier if you want to connect lots of compatible RGB fans inside the case, LED strips, but also control the LED light show in detail. The device permits monitoring of system temperatures from the included thermistors, but also connect other LINK-compatible hardware to the dual USB 2.0 headers. It measures 133mm x 69mm x 15.5mm so its slim form factor allows installation in most computer cases."

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