ASUS O!Play LIVE HD Media Player @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Jul 12 2012 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`re like me, over the years you`ve collected a huge digital library full of music, pictures, and movies onto your computer. Occasionally, I might watch a video from off my laptop or listen to a song while working at the desktop, but high-definition movies and music are really best enjoyed on a home theater system with larger screen and powerful speakers. The ASUS O!Play LIVE HD Media Player makes this transition easy, accepting every modern media format over local storage and network connections. Watching broadcast television and DVD/BD movies have been replaced with streaming Internet content and downloaded multimedia files, especially for college aged viewers who own a smartphone or tablet device. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the ASUS O!Play LIVE HD Media Player, and we evaluate how well it performs our tasks."

ASUS Xonar Phoebus soundcard review
     Thu, Jul 12 2012 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the ASUS Xonar Phoebus 7.1 soundcard. Gamers are not quite as strict as the audiophile market place, we would still suggest they like to have great sound, after all a great game is just that much better with high quality surround sound or headphone based audio immersing you into the action. We have been following the development of this product since the beginning and today we have a brand spanking new Phoebus 7.1 bundle in the Guru3D Audio Lab. Without any further delay, lets pull this new audio card out and check it out"

Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless Headset @ Rbmods
     Thu, Jul 12 2012 | 12:04P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having a good headset when you game and use your computer these days is essential; Skype, MSN and other VOIP programs require you to have a good quality headset and also headphones that are comfortable and sound good. Corsair think they have a solution to this with their Vengeance 2000 Wireless headset, lets find out if we agree."

Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless Headset @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Jul 11 2012 | 12:04P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair is well known for their wide range of high quality and high performance enthusiast and gaming orientated computer hardware. The Vengeance 2000 is their first foray into the wireless gaming headset market and boasts multi-channel 7.1 surround sound gaming audio capabilities too. The Vengeance 2000 headset is very comfortable thanks to a padded headband and microfiber covered memory foam ear pads, and has true freedom of movement thanks to the lack of wires. At the business end we have 50mm drivers with a frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz and a unidirectional noise-cancelling condenser microphone with a frequency response of 10Hz to 10 kHz. The main setback of the Vengeance 2000 (model CA-9011115-NA) is its price, at $144.99 you have to really ask yourself if it is worth an extra $55 over the Vengeance 1500 for wireless freedom. Benchmark Reviews intends to give you all the information you need to know about the Vengeance 2000 wireless 7.1 gaming headset and to answer any questions you might have."

     Wed, Jul 11 2012 | 9:07A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair is one of the few companies that successfully entered the gaming peripherals market. There are quite a lot of other companies that tried to do the same but didn`t succeed by now. Today we`re having a closer look at the Vengeance 2000 Gaming Headset. Of course we want to know what the thing sounds like and see if this piece of gaming hardware is a big hit or just another headset."

     Tue, Jul 10 2012 | 9:37A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CM Storm, the gaming subsidiary of Cooler Master, has been delivering gaming specific peripherals to the PC community quite a while now, and for the most part they havent disappointed.

CM Storm Sonuz Gaming Headset Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 9:16A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yes, Cooler Masters CM Storm Sonuz headset is a beast. 53mm drivers, 97mm earpads, detachable microphone, and a 3.5mm headphone jack, set the stage for a headset that is ready to climb in the ring with the big boys. But instead of dazzling you with virtual surround, the Sonuz is just going to hit you with raw power. Is its raw power strong enough to deliver a knockout punch? Continue reading to find out"

     Sun, Jul 08 2012 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer Blackshark Headset Battlefield 3 Edition Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Rather than go with a rebranded version of an existing headset for their Battlefield 3 set Razer decided to design a new model and that is the Blackshark. Today we have the Blackshark on our test bench to see how it performs."

Palo Alto Audio Design Cubik Speakers Review @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Jul 07 2012 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Built in computer speakers especially in Apple products tend to sound weak and lack punch. Todays review item is designed to address this issue while adding some style as well. Palo Alto Audio Design created the Cubik speaker system to provide hi-fi audio to your MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Mini or Mac Pro machines. These speakers can also be used with PCs but Palo Alto seems to be primarily targeting the Apple market. "

Ozone Onda ST Stereo Gaming Headset Review @ TechwareLabs
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every good gamer should look past their desktop and laptop to their interface, namely the mouse and headset. As important as it is for you to be able to effectively and precisely move when in a game it is equally important for you to be able to hear when your enemies fire or run at you. A good headset is critical to your gaming experience. We took the Ozone Onda ST out for a spin and show you why it earns our TechwareLabs Gold Award. See why we liked this product so much."

SoundWave SW50 Bluetooth Speaker Phone Review @ TestFreaks
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 2:11P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Im back with a brief review for you of a small product that allows you to wirelessly steam audio from most any Bluetooth enabled device. The product is called the SoundWave SW50 Speaker Phone and yes it also can be used with your phone as a speakerphone. The SW50 is very simple to use and it features a rechargeable battery, but the most important part is that it produces decent sound. "

Audyssey Lower East Side Media Speakers System Review
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 9:52A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I first started paying extra attention to speaker systems back in 1998 when i received the DVD-ROM/MPEG Decoder card bundle by Creative labs called the Encore DXR2 which back then was pretty much the best and perhaps only way for someone to watch DVD`s with the highest possible A/V quality. Of course it goes without saying that i matched the Encore DXR2 bundle with the only mid-end 5.1 Dolby surround compatible speaker set i could find for just under $400 (i think it was manufactured by TEAC). Since then however although Ive used and tested several 5.1/7.1 Dolby/DTS surround sets from various manufacturers like SONY, Yamaha, Tannoy, Klipsch, Crystal Audio and Logitech i have to admit that not many 2/2.1 speaker sets have made it into my house and/or my lab (the only ones i can recall reached my lab just over a year ago and were manufactured by Scythe and Sandberg). Today we are going to take a look at a dual speaker set manufactured by Audyssey, a company which may not be well-known by most of you but according to several professionals around the world they are considered to be amongst the best at what they do right next to legendary manufacturers like BOSE."

ARCTIC Sound S362 Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 9:23A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
S362 is a 2.1 sound system designed to make watching movies, listening to movies and playing games even more enjoyable. Their price makes them quite an attractive product and we are hoping today that quality and performance does not suffer as a result. Join us as we review the ARCTIC S362s."

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.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review
Jul 27 | Motherboards
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.
