Game Max Sapphire RGB Case Review
     Sat, Apr 29 2017 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently we have reviewed a couple of cases from Game Max, and while they both scored very well, they were definitely aimed at users on a budget. Today, we are seeing what Game Max can offer those looking for a more luxurious case, as the Sapphire RGB is definitely luxurious – it features no less than 3 tempered glass side panels, and not ordinary tempered glass either. The Game Max Sapphire’s highlight feature (quite literally) is its use of mirror-finish tempered glass.

Mad Catz F.R.E.Q.9 Wireless Surround Headset Review
     Tue, Apr 25 2017 | 5:27P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At launch the rather expensive F.R.E.Q.9 Wireless Headset by Mad Catz was considered to be among the top headsets of its class not only due to its impressive audio clarity and accuracy but also due to its excellent build quality and available connectors thanks to its audio box. 2+ years later and with its price reduced by over 70% due to EOL status the F.R.E.Q.9 is by far the best headset of its class today.

TUNAI CLIP Review
     Mon, Apr 24 2017 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
TUNAI Creative is a new company here for us at ThinkComputers. Looking at their product lineup they currently offer two products, the CLIP, which we are taking a look at today and the Firefly. Both are Bluetooth audio products. The clip is an interesting product as its main function is to bring wireless connectivity to your favorite set of wired headphones. It also gives you a voice assistant, microphone for taking calls, and has a range of 250 feet in the open air. CLIP comes along at an interesting time where many mobile devices are dropping support of the 3.5 mm jack. If you have a favorite pair of headphones that are wired this could be the perfect thing for you! Read on as we take a look..."

Drobo 5N2 Review
     Tue, Apr 18 2017 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 5N2 is the successor of the 5N, which we've already reviewed last year. On the inside there is now an upgraded quad core SoC running at 1.6GHz (1.2GHz with the 5N) making sure there is enough processing power and apart from that there are two 1 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces (1 interface in the 5N) for quick transfers. Drobo is keen on making their NAS as easy to use as possible. One key feature is the possibility to add disk drives of different sizes to an array.

ZTE Grand X 4 Smartphone Evaluation
     Thu, Apr 13 2017 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted our review of the ZTE Grand X 4 Smartphone. This is an Android 6.0.1 device that packs in a very large battery into a device with mainstream specifications. While it's not going to break any benchmark records, it's a solid device that is worth a look if you want a lot of features on a decent device that won't break the bank - or be required to be tethered to a charger all day. Take a look at our review for all the little details.

Sennheiser GSP 300 @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Apr 05 2017 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to headphones the Sennheiser brand is well known for their great audio performance both in the enthusiast market and the professional market. They have even been in the gaming market for a while now, I even covered the PC-350’s all the way back in 2009. I was really excited about the PC-350’s back then for their performance and their comfort but the price point was out of range for most regular gamers. It took 8 years but they did finally decide to move into the regular price range of gaming headset. So I’m really excited today to check out the Sennheiser GSP 300’s and see how they compare to the recently improving gaming headset market. Sennheiser finally has a model at a price point that won’t scare people away, but is it too late?

Smaller than the usual Micro ATX case, the Define Mini C and its optimized interior provides the perfect base for users. The open air design offers unobstructed airflow across your core components with high performance and silent computing in mind at every step.

In a relatively short space of time, HyperX has come to dominate the gaming headset market. Today, we are looking at the company’s most expensive headset to-date – the Cloud Revolver S. It slots in above the original Revolver, with the main difference between the two being the addition of software-free Dolby 7.1 virtual surround, though HyperX has also made a few design tweaks.

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