Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Nov 25 2014 | 5:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Peripherals with multicolor lighting are trending this year thanks in part to Corsair?s RGB keyboards redefining creative possibilities. The hyped showcase at CES 2014 was beset by many months of waiting for the actual release and during that time, other companies have stepped up to the plate with their own similar offerings. Razer answered in time with its Chroma lineup which includes a headset with multicolor illumination unlike the new Corsair Gaming lineup. As such, Razer becomes the second in recent memory to offer a gaming peripheral set consisting of a keyboard, mouse, and headset with multicolor lighting. The first set that could be assembled was from some 2013 SteelSeries products such as their Apex keyboard, Sensei Wireless mouse, and Siberia Elite headset. This review focuses on the Kraken 7.1 Chroma, the headset entry in Razer?s new Chroma lineup as well as a new addition to the Kraken family of headsets. The Kraken 7.1 Chroma features RGB multicolor lighting, virtual surround sound, and a retractable microphone."

Ultimate Ears BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Review
     Sat, Nov 22 2014 | 1:07P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the past 5 years or so I?ve been looking all over the market to track down the perfect portable wireless speaker (the holy grail of wireless speakers as i like to call it) with no luck really. Sure many models by some of the leading companies in the field have reached us some of which performed extremely well both in terms of audio quality and volume levels while others offered a plethora of interesting and innovative features including built-in MP3 players, battery packs (used to recharge other devices), voice recorders and even on-the-fly voice changers but in the end to my disappointment none offered both. Ultimate Ears has been around for quite some time and I?ve worked with them in the past but ever since they joined with Logitech for reasons unknown we drifted apart. Well I?m happy to say that this ends today since with us we have their best portable wireless speaker to date the BOOM."

Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 2400MHz 32GB Memory Kit Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Oct 31 2014 | 9:34A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial recently announced that they have come out with enthusiast-class Ballistic Sport DDR4 modules that offer increased bandwidth over your traditional `value series` DDR4 memory kits. The kits also look better thanks to the use of a integrated heat spreader and a black PCB instead of traditional green PCB that has been around for decades. Crucial sent over the Ballistix Sport 32GB DDR4 2400MHz desktop memory kit that is sold under part number BLS4K8G4D240FSA. This memory kit runs at 2400MHz with 16-16-16-39 2T timings at 1.20V. Read on to see how this kit performs. We don`t want to spoil too much, but let`s just say it overclocked beyond 2400MHz and we got CL12 timings with a 1T command rate with the overclock.  Could this be the DDR4 memory kit to get this fall?"

Kingston HyperX FURY 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Wed, Oct 29 2014 | 8:59A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the most part, the HyperX FURY did quite a bit better than the specifications quoted. In real life file transfers, writing was rather impressive at nearly four times what it was said it could do, coming in at almost 120MB/s. Reads were seen to be upwards of the 90MB/s as well, so I am not sure why the low rating. I`m sure Kingston has its reasons, but I would have been less likely to have bought the drive having been told it was only capable of 30MB/s write. With the price being a little high per GB, the low listed ratings on the box becomes a deterrent. It seems as if the FURY is being shot in the foot by not claiming what it is capable of, but rather perhaps the bare minimum worst case scenario numbers I`ve even yet to see (other than in Sandra, which seems to show every drive below its ratings). I honestly would have not bought this drive based on the rated performance and cost. To me it would have been a bit too much for a nice warranty and slow speeds, so I would have bought something else."
