ASUS X99 Deluxe LGA2011-3 ATX Motherboard Review
     Thu, Oct 16 2014 | 9:34A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intels new Haswell-E CPU series (reviewed here) and its accompanying X99 chipset launch has had its challenges. Originally, Haswell-E was going to get a completely new socket. Although the new LGA2011-3 is not backwards compatible with previous CPUs, it does work with all coolers that worked with standard LGA2011 sockets from the X79 platform. Those late in the quarter changes made it very difficult for Intel partners to validate their X99 platforms and solidify their products lines. In fact, only partners with enough resources were able to launch on time with the August 29th embargo lift. That means, ASUS came through first, with GIGABYTE right on their heels. The rest are still catching up. "

     Thu, Oct 16 2014 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up our review of the GroovyW Bluetooth and NFC speaker from Luxa2. What makes product stand out even more is that it charges by way of a Qi charger that is included - and that charger just happens to be a portable battery as well. That's right, this is pretty much three products in one and it is all awesome. If you want to see if this unit is right for you, please check our review for all the details.

Cutting the Cord: Part 1 Alternatives Boxes @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Oct 16 2014 | 8:59A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well a few months ago I finally did the unbelievable and canceled my cable subscription. The main reason behind this is was that I rarely watched TV at all and honestly most of the stations I did watch showed the same shows over and over again. It was weird not having cable after having it for the past 29 years of my life it seems like, but I have really got used to it and with the money it has saved me I have been able to do other things and buy some other gadgets. In this article series I will be going through my journey of canceling my cable and finding alternatives. Today I will be focusing on hardware to watch media on your TV."

Blackbox M10 SE Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Review
     Tue, Oct 14 2014 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of weeks ago i had to go to the airport near where i live at 7 in the morning in order to welcome a good friend of mine so as always i packed my smartphone along with my wallet and a pair of headphones and made my way there. Well the thing is that i actually managed to get there quite earlier and i was somewhat glad since i was hoping that there wouldn't be too many people at the airport so early in the morning (i rarely travel so early) and thus I’d be able to enjoy my coffee while listening to my favorite tunes. Unfortunately this wasn't the case and so the amount of noise coming from the terminals and from everyone around me made it quite hard for me to enjoy listening to music. Because of this the moment i came back home i started searching online to find a reasonably priced headphone set that offered active noise cancellation and thus could be used in noise intensive environments such as bus terminals, trains and yes even airports. The M10 SE active noise cancelling headphones by BlackBox were amongst the top results of our search and so it didn't take long for us to receive a review sample.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 SLI @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Oct 13 2014 | 4:22P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At half the price of a GeForce GTX 780 Ti, the GeForce GTX 970 can tempt you to buy a pair of them. With Ultra HD monitors dropping below the $500 mark, a playable Ultra HD gaming PC under $2000 suddenly sounds realistic. Here`s why spending 3 grand on a GTX TITAN-Z was a bad idea."

Func HS-260 Gaming-Headset

Posted by: STAFF
The Func HS-260 Headset arrived Technic3D. The HS-260 has been designed with the sound and volume controls directly integrated onto the headset itself. A larger driver tends to deliver a more powerful sound, which in turn delivers a deeper bass? We will check this and more in the following Review."

Grain Audio PWS.01 Packable Wireless Speaker Review
     Wed, Oct 01 2014 | 5:27P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are more portable wireless speaker manufacturers out in the market currently than i can even begin to count but the thing that really matters is that most of them have one thing in common, they don`t seem to focus enough in producing high quality and high performance products mainly because the majority of their target audience places low-cost and design above everything else. There are certainly some exceptions to that rule so aside low-cost portable wireless speakers these companies do occasionally release good quality products but still not on par to what some other more audiophile oriented companies do. Grain Audio may not have been around for long but they`ve got a large following around the world simply because they cater to the needs of people who place quality and performance above cost and so it`s no surprise that we just had to check out their latest products and the PWS.01 packable wireless speaker is the first to reach our doorstep."

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.
