Apple EarPods review: more than good enough
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
No one missed the launch of the iPhones, iPads, and iPods last year, but Apple also updated a small but very important part of their product line: their standard in-ear headphones. The standard earbuds that you receive with Apple's products have been overhauled. Better late than never, as the original earbuds were never really popular, and the new EarPods sound a lot better.

Logitech UE Boombox review: better than the Mobile
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's definitely one of the better-sounding Bluetooth speakers that we have heard, but then again, there aren't many products like this on the market. Its larger dimensions give it an advantage over speakers like the Jawbone Jambox and the Jabra Solemate, in areas of volume, bass and detail.

Jabra Solemate review: super Bluetooth speaker
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 3:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In recent months we tested a number of portable speakers. Especially the wireless Bluetooth manage to raise some eyebrows around the office from time to time, but they're so expensive that we can't really recommend them without any reservations. Jabra's Solemate, which we are reviewing today, also isn't cheap, but it does get everything right.

Razer Kraken Pro Gaming Headset Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 11:28A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kraken Pro Analog Gaming Headset was a product that I received after competing in the annual Tiger Direct PC Race. Only after the event was over and all the hoopla from CES calmed down did we decide that the Kraken Pro was one of the products we received that we legitimately wanted to review. Razer has a history of making wild claims regarding PC products, i.e. The Razer Blade: The Worlds First Gaming Laptop or the Razer Edge Pro: The Worlds First Gaming Tablet but with the Kraken Pro they are making a claim based on one of the most subjective topics in product reviewscomfort. The Kraken Pro has a lot to live up to, especially when you make a claim like that, so lets see how it holds up."

Novatron Cocktail Audio X10 review: ripping CDs and much more
     Fri, Feb 08 2013 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All things considered, the X10 is a great concept with less-than-great execution. The price point is an issue here, for £289 we expect a product that is more user-friendly and has a more high-end finish. It seems that not enough attention was paid to the end-user, and that the sole focus was on the hardware. But for the technologically savvy user with a huge CD collection and money to spare, this device definitely has potential.

CM Storm Ceres 400 Gaming Headset - BCCHardware
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 11:50A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`ll be reviewing a relatively new headset to the market - the Cooler Master CM Storm Ceres 400. Its sleek and stylish and could be a great alternative to some of the overpriced headsets that are on the market today. Some of the features that it boasts are high quality sound, a noise canceling mic, and a nice lightweight frame with some comfortable noise canceling ear pads. It also has an in-line volume control and mic mute switch which are very much must haves on headsets in this day in age. . ."

MyDigitalSSD BP4 mSATA SSD Review (240GB)
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Perhaps one of the hottest tech items to hit in the last year is the ultrabook, a laptop typically measuring under 1/2? thick, weighing less than 3 lbs, having performance as high as 1GB/s transfer speeds and being capable of up to ten hours battery life. As new and amazing as the ultra is, the consumer also learned of the solid state drive and, more specifically, the mSATA SSD measuring 1/3 the size of a credit card, just over 3mm thick and weighing just under 7gm. As with any other new technology, such things as storage capacity are considered premium and, even now, we are seeing systems sell for as much as $500-$750 more, simply the result of a storage upgrade from 120 to 240GB. The smart consumer is one who buys the lower capacity system with full intent of upgrading the SSD themselves and, in doing so, saves themselves hundreds of dollars.

Sound Judgment: Five Gaming Headphones Tested
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What separates a premium headset from a blue light special? It's a combination of things, from well designed drivers to comfy ear cups that kiss the sides of your head with a gentle yet firm caress (we're being melodramatic...a little). And then there's the overall feature-set and premium extras like a noise-cancelling microphone and 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound. Unfortunately, there's only so much you can discern from a headset's spec sheet, and with so many to choose from, you'd have to invest an obscene amount of time and money auditioning each one. We don't want you to have to do that, so we went and rounded up five high-end headsets from four different manufacturers, including Corsair, Creative Labs, Roccat and Rosewill and the goods posted on the following pages...

Samsung DA-E750 Wireless Audio Dock - BCCHardware
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the end I was quite impressed with the Samsung DA-E750 Wireless Audio Dock. The fact that it can connect to and dock with so many different devices - including Apple devices via the 30-pin dock connector and Android devices via the MicroUSB connector is pretty awesome. If you don`t have either of these, you`re still in luck because it supports IP streaming from a Windows PC over Ethernet or WiFi as well as Bluetooth, AllShare Play, 1/8 Audio input and more. . ."

a.m.p SP1 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker & Speakerphone Review
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 9:23A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wired portable media speakers have been around for quite a long time (mostly small stereo ones) but it wasn`t until smartphones made their debut around a decade ago that manufacturers focused on the design and manufacture of wireless ones via Bluetooth connectivity. Fast forward a decade and right now the market is literally filled with countless Bluetooth compatible portable speakers of virtually every size possible which not only can be used to significantly boost the audio levels of your smartphone but can also double as speakerphones. To date only two such devices have really peaked our interest, the quite powerful and unique looking SOLEMATE Bluetooth Portable Speaker by Jabra and the extremely easy to use Boost Plus Near Field Audio Amplifying Speaker (needs no wires and Bluetooth to work) by iFrogz. Recently however Antec launched their Antec Mobile Products division (a.m.p) through which they aim to dominate that market with their latest SP1 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker & Speakerphone which we have here today."

SteelSeries Flux Headset Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 9:22A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the cellphone being more and more a platform for digital entertainment (games and multimedia), it`s just natural that the user would want a headset that is fit for gaming in a classic desktop/laptop configuration and also good for listening to music and making calls on a mobile device. Flux, the portable model from SteelSeries, is an answer to all those needs. It also features heavy rubber cables that don`t tangle up, plus literally over a thousand choices of customization. The product is sold in a regular version as well as a luxury edition, with some accessories. We received the luxury edition for our test, but first we are going to review the headset itself, and then proceed to analyze its accessories and performance."

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.
