 [LATEST]  SB Inferno Gaming Headset @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Jul 28 2014 | 10:36A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few years ago, we used to see the fatal1ty headsets all over the place at events. They were without a doubt the best low budget gaming headset on the market. They performed well and took a beating without falling apart. Even now, it is still one of the highest rated headsets on Newegg. Here we are seven years later and Creative is introducing the SB Inferno, the spiritual successor to the Fatal1ty Gaming Headset. Its amazing how much has changed in seven years, I cant wait to see how the SB Inferno compares to todays latest and greatest in gaming audio."

Creative Sound Blaster ZxR Versus Onboard Audio
     Fri, Jul 25 2014 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we're looking at the Sound Blaster ZxR, Creative's flagship audio solution for PC power users. It's also one of three available cards in Creative's ultra high-performance Z-Series of sound cards, the ZxR being the top-end solution. It boasts a signal-to-noise (SNR) of 124dB that Creative claims is 89.1 times better than your motherboard's integrated audio solution. It also features a built-in headphone amplifier, beamforming microphone, a multi-core Sound Core3D audio processor, and various proprietary audio technologies. We'll examine the Sound Blaster ZxR in detail and figure out what kind of audience is best suited for a card of this caliber. To do that, we'll compare the ZxR to onboard audio and offer up some subjective analysis based on what we hear, as well as look at any potential impact in gaming performance...

Creative Soundblaster Omni Surround 5.1 USB DAC Review
     Thu, Jul 24 2014 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Creative had launched a slew of audio products based on its quad-core Recon 3D audio processor including the latest Z series. However, it had not launched any budget offerings other than its old Audigy and Live! series. ASUS had captured the lower budget market with their Xonar DX and DG offerings which were better performers while their higher end STX and ST competed with Creative’s older Recon 3D and current Z series. To buff up their lower end sound card offerings, Creative launched 3 budget oriented soundcards –Soundblaster Audigy RX, Soundblaster Audigy FX and Soundblaster Omni Surround 5.1.

Mionix Nash 20 Headset Review @HiTech Legion
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"You know, I still have no idea what D.A.C.T. drivers are….but I do know that I like them. The Mionix Nash 20 truly came out of left field for me. I just wasn’t expecting anything like what I got, and certainly not anything nearly this good. While they are (sometimes) a “gaming” headset, Mionix is showing off a stellar all-around headset with the Nash 20, and that is few and far between in computer component manufacturers, or by any manufacturer at this price point."

Turtle Beach Ear Force Z SEVEN Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Jul 21 2014 | 7:45P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Turtle Beach is perhaps a name better known amongst console gamers since you can easily find their Ear Force lineup of headsets somewhere close to where the boxed console games are in certain stores. Most Turtle Beach Ear Force headsets are compatible with computers or any electronic device with a 3.5 mm jack nonetheless because most gamers or even most people make due with one set of headphones for all their devices. The Turtle Beach Z SEVEN we have for review is actually part of a much larger family of SEVEN headsets. Read on to find out more about it!"

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy RX 7.1 Sound Card Review
     Mon, Jul 21 2014 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Creative had launched their quad core Recon 3D cards and ZX series cards some time back. These were mid and high end audio gaming cards which were well received all over. However, the entry level market didn’t have any real compelling options from Creative. The only options were the old Audigy Value and Soundblaster 5.1 cards which were launched many years ago. With the launch of the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy RX 7.1, Creative is infusing some fresh tech in the entry level sound card market. On paper the specs of the Audigy RX 7.1 are very good – Built in headphone amplifier, 7.1 channel support, gold plated connectors etc are all hallmarks of a high end sound card.

LUXA2 GroovyW Bluetooth Speaker with Wireless Charging Station Review
     Sat, Jul 19 2014 | 10:36A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When i first heard that scientists had taken the first steps for wireless charging od devices a few back i was very intrigued since i do think that the future holds complete wireless freedom for everything in the electronics industry. Unfortunately to this day the consumer oriented devices that feature wireless charging are far from what i had hoped to see back then so in order to use wireless charging you need to place your smartphone on special Qi pads which only work with Qi compatible devices (since factory-ready Qi devices are quite rare Qi cards exist that add compatibility). Of course i expect full wireless charging in the coming years without such limitations but for now Qi is one of the hottest technologies around although it`s not really as popular as one would think. Still it`s popular enough for many manufacturers to implement it into their latest products to hit the market and one of those is the GroovyW Bluetooth Speaker by LUXA2."

ASUS Essence STX II 7.1 Sound Card
     Fri, Jul 18 2014 | 1:37P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Review: ASUS Essence STX II 7.1 Sound Card Join us as we review the ASUS Essence STX II 7.1 Sound Card. The Xonar Sound Machine decided to switch gears and once again has aimed their design prowess at the high end add in soundcard market. The Xonar soundcard line started with the early D series card, with their last contributions being the premium STX and PCI 7.1 version, the ST Deluxe. Both these premium cards are considered high grade products to the PC audio world. That being said, it begs the question; Can ASUS truly surpass these earlier heavy weight products with their new Essence STX II 7.1?

Audio-Technica ATH-AG1 Gaming Headset Review | Hardware Heaven
     Fri, Jul 18 2014 | 9:12A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Audio-Technica have been creating products for over 50 years now and in the process created quite a name for themselves in that market. Recently they took their first steps into the gaming marketplace with the AG1 and ADG1. The key difference between the two is open back/closed back and today we have the AG1 closed back gaming headset for review."

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.
