Auzen X-Meridian 7.1 2G soundcard review
     Tue, May 10 2011 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a name like X-Meridian 2G, the guys at Auzentech have a tough act to follow, is the design up to the task? Today in the Guru3D Audio Lab we have a brand new Auzentech X-Meridian 7.1 2G, so let's get to it and see if Auzentech can release a new version of a legendary audio card. The original X-Meridian marked a dramatic shift in the market and peoples understanding of these devices. Since the XM was focused on sound and component quality, new users started taking notice of what was actually on their cards instead of just what features they offered.

AC Ryan Playon!HD Mini 2
     Tue, May 10 2011 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For those of you that took a look at the AC Ryan Playon!HD2 1TB and thought to yourself, well that looks great, but I already have a PC full of movies, why do I need one in my lounge too? Well, that’s a good question and here to answer it is the Mini 2, the storage free, networking content hub that you’ll soon want in your living room setup. To find out why, the quickest thing to do would be to skip to the last page and read the conclusion; but we put a lot of work into our reviews here at XSR. Go on, give the whole thing a read, please?"

Kingwin Lazer Platinum 550W Power Supply Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, May 07 2011 | 8:14A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The thing that certainly stands out the most about Kingwin?s Lazer Platinum Power Supply is certainly the 80 Plus Platinum certification printed right on the front of the box. Platinum is the highest level of CSCI certification, which means, in a nutshell, that it one of the most efficient PSU?s on the market and will help your PC?s lifespan last longer with greatly reduced heat. Another great feature is the ECO Intelligent Thermal Control System, which will help keep maximum cooling performance while maintaining minimal fan noise by preventing fan rotation, unless the temperature reaches around 70 Degrees Celsius. The unit was also designed with high end GPU performance in mind with two 6 Pin and two 6+2 Pin PCI connections. Let?s take a look."""

headset from their Gaming Audio
     Mon, Apr 25 2011 | 5:09P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair has recently released their new headset from their Gaming Audio Series line, the HS1A. The HS1A is a newer version of the HS1, with the “A” symbolizing the change from USB-only to analog audio connectors. The analog HS1A headset will leave a lot up to whatever sound card the user employs in conjunction with it. The 50mm drivers should help reproduce high-quality audio with the mids and highs inside the full-cover ear cups. The HS1A includes two types of ear cups that are easily interchangeable, those being microfiber and synthetic leather. The rotatable boom on the left ear cup also has a bendable section to further customize the microphone’s position. With most of the niceties out of the way, let’s get on to the reason everyone is here and see how well the HS1A headset performs in our testing.

Snipa Sonar 5.1 Championship Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, Apr 23 2011 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Finding a gaming headset that offered 5.1 audio used to be a total rarity, but today, they're commonplace. While some 5.1 headsets out there don't do the best of jobs with delivering the aural experience we'd hope for, some do, if the driver alignment and software is spot-on. Read on to see which camp the Sonar 5.1 Championship sits in.

Corsair SP2500 2.1 Speaker System and HS1A Headset
     Fri, Apr 22 2011 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although the idea of a 2.1 speaker system isn’t terribly exciting to some users in this era of multi-channel gaming audio and 5.1 channel speaker systems, the technology employed by the Corsair SP2500 2.1 channel speaker system is intriguing. Not only that, but the simple fact of the matter is, most PC users don’t have the right room and / or desk setup to properly install and configure a surround sound speaker system. If you own a high-end, 5.1 channel speaker system and your rear satellites aren’t positioned properly, at the right angle and distance from your ears, don’t scoff at the idea of an advanced 2.1 channel system. Odds are the 2.1 channel setup sounds better than the muddled mess that is an improperly configured 5.1 channel speaker system...

Diamond Xtreme External 7.1 USB Sound Card
     Thu, Apr 21 2011 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The main excelling point for the Diamond card is the analog music playback, which was due to its ability to up-mix 2 channel stereo, up to 8 channels, which, was 6 in my case. It did a great job at making the room offer a fuller music experience, while the onboard sound without 3rd party software can only play in 2 channels. Everything else was very similar in quality and it was difficult to tell a difference between the two options since movies and gaming are easily configured for 5.1 or 7.1 through the onboard sound."

ROCCAT Kulo Stereo Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, Apr 16 2011 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest Stereo Gaming Headset from ROCCAT is named Kulo, is very light (suitable for LAN Parties), and comes with an unique feature: the Automatic Mic-Mute; also, the in-line volume control is very handy. Even if it is an on-ear model, it's confortable even after many hours of use.

Thermaltake eSPORTS Shock One Gaming Headset
     Sat, Apr 16 2011 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thermaltake eSPORTS Shock One headset features good all round sound and good directionality with its DTS Surround Sensation. While it might not have the best comfort or sound out of the box (until you swap it for the included velour pads), it has definitely become a real joy to use after a week of use. Using its potent set of 40mm drivers, the Shock One is definitely a contender in the sub $100 market, and has impressed me thus far. Definitely recommended for anyone who is looking for a good looking headset with great sounds.

Corsair SP2200 2.1 PC Speaker Review
     Wed, Apr 13 2011 | 10:28P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overall, I really liked the SP2200 system. It was definitely designed for gamers! Bass Response on the SP2200 is definitely a shining moment for these speakers. Without a doubt they sound much better than most other "Gaming" or "PC" systems as Corsair has bass sent to the sub and it only handles the low end of the sound spectrum..."

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.
