Mad Catz Tritton Pro+ 5.1 Surround Headset @ Benchmark Reviews
     Mon, Jan 21 2013 | 1:17A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Before current generation consoles were even conceived, PC gamers and enthusiasts have been able to enjoy the benefits that headsets offer. In recent years XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3 users are now also able to enjoy those same benefits. Today Benchmark Reviews will be taking a look at the TRITTON Pro+ True 5.1 Surround Sound Headset from Mad Catz. The TRITTON Pro+ is compatible with PlayStation 3, XBOX 360 and PC (Europe) via an optional cable. The TRITTON Pro+ boasts true Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound via eight individual drivers - four in each earcup (Front, Center, Surround, Subwoofer) - each with independent volume control. Visually speaking there isn`t much that separates the Pro+ from the rest of the TRITTON range of headsets; it`s all about what`s inside, so let`s find out more..."

Plantronics GameCom 780 7.1 Surround Sound
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This headset integrates a noise-cancelling microphone, which allows your voice to be heard clearly during multiplayer games (by cancelling out any background noise). This can make a big difference to your teammates if you do a lot of online gaming. The other major feature is the virtual surround sound (courtesy of Dolby technology). You’ll need to install the GameCom software to utilise this feature, but it aims to create a directional listening experience, rather than standard stereo audio."

Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Rage Review @ Custom PC Review
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 8:54P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It seems like Creative is following the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mantra for their latest Tactic 3D lineup of gaming headsets. For a company with a name that literally implies innovation, this comes across as a little strange for me. In fact, the headsets in the Tactic 3D lineup look so similar that when Creative sent me the Tactic 3D Rage to review I had to double check the box to make..."

     Wed, Jan 16 2013 | 8:14P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Orion Pro headset, with Spitfire USB Dongle, provides an all-in-one solution for incredible gaming audio and effects. The ASUS Orion Pro is the manifestation of extensive research in gaming audio characteristics, as well as comfort and ergonomics for those all night gaming sessions. The Orion headset features 50mm drivers with neodymium magnets sporting 20Hz-20KHz frequency response for incredible clarity and extended bass. 100mm full-sized padded ear cups provide 30dB of isolation along with great comfort, while the band easily adjusts for a perfect fit. Pressure is regulated to keep your Orion Pro snug, while never being tight enough to cause discomfort. A noise canceling microphone located in the left ear cup can easily extend and retract as needed."

[DreamWare Computers] Samsung DA-E750 Wireless Audio Dock
     Sat, Jan 05 2013 | 3:09P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently released on the market was Samsung`s DA-E750 wireless audio dock. Where most audio docks fall short by only supporting maybe one or two different protocols, the DA-E750 supports them all, including; mini USB dock, iPhone/iPad dock, Bluetooth, Airplay, AllShare Play, USB and network playback and of course an auxiliary input too. The DA-E750 has also taken a radically different design approach than most audio docks and looks more like something you`d buy at a boutique audio shop instead of your local electronics store. With a price tag only marginally higher than some high end audio docks on the market, the DA-E750 looks as though it could find itself with many uses around the home, so let`s see what it`s all about!"

Asustor AS-602T 2-Bay NAS Network Attached Storage Device Review @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Jan 05 2013 | 1:34P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review I have a NAS from a new company called Asustor. Ive never heard of this company but the NAS I have for review has some decent specs like a dual core CPU and 1gb of DDR3 ram on-board. The NAS I have for review is the AS-602T model which is a two bay device or you can use two hard drives with it. This type of NAS is great for home or small office use. The 602T also comes complete with USB 3.0 ports, eSATA ports, dual Ethernet jacks and even an HDMI connection. From my testing and comparing it to other NAS boxes, the 602T is by far the fastest NAS Ive ever owned or reviewed by a considerable margin in some tests. So read on for a rather large review of the AS-602T and see how it compared to other NAS boxes available on the market... "

[DreamWare Computers] Audyssey Wireless Media Speakers
     Fri, Jan 04 2013 | 3:09P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although the LES Media Speakers, Audyssey`s first speaker model, offered both analog and digital input (something not often found on stereo speakers in this market), the one area they fell short was the absence of an auxiliary input. Whenever I wanted to listen to media off my phone or tablet I had to constantly unplug the speakers from my computer and plug them into whichever device I wanted to listen from next. Audyssey listened to their buyers though, and where most manufacturers would simply slap an auxiliary input on to the speakers, Audyssey upped the ante and released a bluetooth pair (still supporting legacy analog input as well). Today I happen to have a set of the Wireless Media Speakers here for review and I am anxious to see if the addition of wireless Bluetooth audio will have any impact on the sound quality of these great speakers!"

RHA CA-200 Headphones Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Jan 03 2013 | 9:47A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The RHA CA200 is a lightweight, circum-aural headphone that is perfect for audio enjoyment while on the move or at home. The RHA CA-200 is available in high-gloss black or white finishes and carries an MSRP of $30 USD. For a comfortable fit, RHA has designed the CA-200 to utilize a ball and socket mechanism paired with noise isolating, soft ear pads to accommodate heads of various shapes and sizes. To reproduce high quality audio, the CA200 headphone uses 40mm mylar drivers, neodymium magnets as well as copper-clad aluminum wire voice coils, exposing the listener to a frequency range of 20-20,000Hz and a sensitivity of 113dB. To add to the portable convenience, the CA200 comes with a 1.2m detachable braided Y-cable designed with anti-fraying protection to prevent any damage from unnecessary tugs and pulls, ultimately prolonging the lifespan of the CA200 on top of the 3-year warranty.///"

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.
