EVGA NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 Review - $199 Tegra 4 Tablet
     Wed, Nov 20 2013 | 10:17A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At a price of $199, the EVGA Tegra Note 7 is priced just under the lowest cost Nexus 7, and is able to make a case for itself with performance and features. Yes, the Nexus feels a bit better in the hand and has a higher resolution screen, but the Note 7 comes with a stylus a, drastically improved audio with front facing speakers, and a camera with pending features like always-on HDR."

Halite Video Purifier by Salt Labs Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Nov 14 2013 | 11:21A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Almost one year ago now I reviewed the DarbeeVision Darblet HDMI Video Processor and I thought it was a great device but one of my chief complaints was and still is that its rather ugly and apparently a company called Salt Labs agrees with me on this as theyve sent me of the Halite Video Purifier based on the Darblet. The device is virtually the same as the Darblet but it just looks a whole lot better now. The Halite essentially reprocesses your video, any video, movies, games or TV and add further depth cues to it for enhanced depth and realism, and I found that it can make everything just look better overall. The Halite can improve video quality on lower resolution videos and one of the things I love about it is that it can bring things in the background more into focus. The Halite isnt only for videos, but it does have a gaming mode so it can even enhance your gaming experience. Read on to learn more"

Apple 27-Inch iMac (Late 2013) Review, Haswell Inside
     Sun, Nov 03 2013 | 12:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's hard to believe there's a full fledged system packed inside Apple's slim and sexy iMac chassis. It was roughly a year ago when Apple revamped its all-in-one line, tasking the company's engineers to flatten the design as much as possible without sacrificing performance. What emerged was a sleek display measuring just 5mm at its edge with up to 40 percent less volume than the previous generation. It was such a radical design change that Apple had to abandon traditional welding methods in favor of a process called friction-stir welding, which combines friction-generated heat and pressure to force molecules from two separate aluminum surfaces to mingle with one another.

Video Perspective: ORIGIN PC Millennium Custom Gaming Rig - Ivy Bridge-E GTX 780 SLI
     Sat, Oct 26 2013 | 2:05A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While I was preparing for the release of Intel`s Core i7 Ivy Bridge-E processors last month ORIGIN PC approached me about a system review based on the new platform. Of course I rarely pass up the opportunity to spend some time with unreasonably fast PC hardware so I told them to send something over that would impress me."

Lenovo Erazer X700 PC Gaming Computer System Review
     Fri, Oct 25 2013 | 7:54A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It?s been years since I?ve bought a pre-built desktop computer, so I was interested in the opportunity to check out the Erazer X700 Gaming System that Lenovo offered to us to review. The Erazer occupies a space between the sub-$500 generic boxes most people are satisfied with and the expensive boutique systems at the other end of the scale."

Alienware X51 R2 Desktop Gaming System Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Oct 21 2013 | 8:56A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some say desktop computers are fading into a thing of the past, personally I prefer them over a laptop or tablet any day of the week. Laptops and tablets certainly have their place in today?s on-the-go lifestyle we lead. In fact I?m typing this while sitting in a hotel room on a business trip on my laptop. Obviously there are some advantages to them, but desktop systems are my preferred system any day of the week. Dollar for dollar desktop systems offer more bang for the buck than a laptop, but laptops offer portability though you sacrifice performance. If you haven?t guessed already, today we are looking at a full blown desktop system from Alienware, the X51 R2. The Alienware X51 desktop starts at only $699 but the sky is the limit as the X51 is fully customizable. Read on to see how it performs."

The Asus M51AC-US015S desktop offers multimedia performance and even some gaming prowess a price the competition can`t quite match, but the performance lags behind similarly equipped competition."

Intel NUC D54250WYK SFF System Review - Haswell Update
     Wed, Oct 09 2013 | 6:21P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel`s NUC platform has evolved in this second generation from Ivy Bridge to Haswell with only a few minor changes to the design. Removing the option to have Thunderbolt is a bit of a let down and the price tag is still higher than I would like to see. Improvements on the design are impressive though with the inclusion a smaller z-height, four USB 3.0 ports and multiple display outputs, all added to the upgraded performance of Intel`s Haswell architecture and the new HD Graphics 5000. This isn`t a gaming box and won`t make people clamoring for a Steam Box amass to it but for standard PC use cases you can buy this tiny, 4-in by 4-in computer and meet or exceed any performance requirements of a Windows 8 PC today."

Zotac ZBOX ID89 Plus Mini PC Review
     Fri, Sep 20 2013 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Desktops are evolving, getting smaller and less intrusive. Zotac is a company that's been at the forefront of this evolution by offering up a constantly expanding line of small form factor (SFF) mini PCs that have grown more powerful with each new generation. The compromise between raw performance and power efficiency lessens with each advance AMD and Intel make to their respective processor technologies. In this vein, Zotac sent us its ZBOX ID89 Plus. This little system hardly takes up any space, yet it packs an Intel Core i5 3470T dual-core processor clocked at 2.9GHz (3.6GHz Turbo), 4GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, half a terabyte of HDD-based storage, and a plethora of complementary parts and features such as built-in Wi-Fi, dual Gigabit LAN ports, HDMI output, and more. If you'd rather configure the CPU, RAM, and storage on your own, you can opt for the non-Plus version. At 13.19 inches by 10.43 inches by 3.74 inches, the ZBOX ID89 Plus isn't quite as small as Intel's Next Unit of Computing (NUC), though it is tiny enough to tuck out of sight in a nook or cranny in your home theater setup, or mounted behind a VESA monitor (all the hardware is included). Figuring out where to put it is the easy part; what to do with a mini PC is another story.

ZOTAC ZBOX Nano ID64 Plus Mini-PC Review @ HardwareHeaven.com

Posted by: STAFF
ZOTAC ZBOX Nano ID64 Plus Mini-PC Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Today ZOTAC are taking their ZBOX Nano range to a whole new level, sending it out with an i5 CPU inside... that`s a midrange desktop CPU in a case small enough to hold in the palm of our hand. Can they do it while maintaining performance and minimising temperatures and noise levels?"

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.
