Thermaltake Shock One Headset
     Mon, Sep 05 2011 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake Shock One is made out of the high quality components and loaded with features to provide the consumer with greater level of comfort and compatibility. Due to the surround sound capability the headset is conveniently redesigned to have a USB 2.0 rather than usual 3.5mm audio input and output. The basic layout of the headset has retained the features introduced in Shock headset:comfortable velvet cushions, 10 level size adjustment frame, and portable low noise cancelling microphone attachment. Aside from the basic features however, the user is provided with a more sophisticated control box as well as personal Thermaltake software that allows for not only control of surround sound options but also customization of frequency production through an equalizer, as well as additional sound effects. With all of these features, the Shock One retails as low as USD95.26 on Newegg.com, in comparison to the simpler Shock, which costs only USD45.92. Are these features truly worth such a huge price difference? Let's find out.

Genius SP-HF2020 Hi-Fi Digital Wooden Speakers
     Sun, Sep 04 2011 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Okay, I’m not going to lie, when Bob asked me to review a set of Genius speakers I was quite skeptical. Let’s just be nice and say Genius doesn’t have the best reputation for producing/selling the best quality speakers. Hell, Genius isn’t that many letters away from ‘generic’ and the fact that Apple employees are also called ‘Genius’s’ (I HATE APPLE) gave these speakers a sour taste before I even saw the box. I did a bit of research on these speakers after seeing the un-boxing video a week or so ago on the ThinkComputers website and I was surpris ingly impressed. The company’s website claims “Genius brings all serious listeners a new set of speakers, SP-HF2020, to experience magnificent sound.” Let’s see how accurate that statement is and if my first impression holds true."

ASUS GTX580 MATRIX
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For us enthusiasts out there that budget this kind of money for hardware, the offer is definitely there. You get a premium, hand-picked GPU, a brand new software suite that is full of potential, Clear CMOS-like functionality, hardware monitoring and modding, the cooling to make it happen, and the glorious silence of the huge cooler when you're not tweaking. Not to mention this thing is built like a rock — there's nothing like a premium part actually feeling, you know, premium."

Asus O!Play HD2 Media Player Review
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 12:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Asus has packed a lot of functionality into the O!Play HD2 media player. It supports all the popular HD video formats as well as a myriad of audio and photo formats, and the user interface is intuitive enough that anyone in the house can use it. A built-in 3.5" HDD bay allows the buyer to add internal storage, and the USB 3.0 port ensures you won't be waiting all day for file transfers to complete."

Creative Labs Sound Blaster Tactic3D Sigma Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Aug 31 2011 | 12:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Creative's THX headsets are widely regarded as some of the best out there, and the Tactic3D Sigma reaffirms that. This offering has everything gamers are looking for in a headset - clear, accurate sound reproduction with THX quality, an adjustable noise-canceling mic, durable construction and a lightweight, comfortable fit. Sound quality is nothing short of amazing over the USB connection, and the option to use standard minijacks with a portable audio player is a nice feature to have."

ASUS Xonar U3 USB Sound Card
     Tue, Aug 30 2011 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AKG's K701 boasts one of the widest sound stages available out of any set of cans, and with the use of Dolby's tech that wide sound stage becomes so much more. These same technologies that helped Corsair's HS1 USB headset make movies much more enjoyable by making me feel more involved apply here as well, but the largest difference, mostly thanks to the K701s, is that games are incredible to play. Not only can I immerse myself visually in a game world, I can also immerse myself sonically in it. It's great fun and a huge joy that I haven't experienced in some years since I moved away from Creative's offerings with EAX. Had I been able to test the Xonar U3 in person before purchasing, using my K701s, I would have been very compelled to purchase it based solely on its gaming 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.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review

Rating:
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.
