Watch Dogs Performance and Image Quality Review
     Fri, Aug 29 2014 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We published a preview of Watch Dogs performance when it was released back in May this year. We have given this game time to mature. Now that a couple of game patches have been released, along with newer drivers from NVIDIA and AMD, it is time for our full performance and image quality comparison review.

TteSports Poseidon Z Mechanical Kailh Blue Switch Keyboard Review
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the office today I have something very special, the TteSports Poseidon Z Mechanical Keyboard. While having a mechanical keyboard in for review often feels like a special occasion anyway, since they’re often regarded as premium quality device, there is something uniquely interesting about this keyboard, its switches. The Posidon Z features Kailh switches, and in a market dominated by switches produced by Cherry there has long been room for a strong competitor to enter the market, or at least a cheaper competitor. The question is, can the Kailh Blue switches keep up with the excellent performance of the Cherry MX Blue? Featuring a different switch is one thing, many keyboards implement different methods of registering a keystroke, the important thing about the Kailh switches is that they’re effectively a copy of the Cherry style mechanical switch, but without the wallet hurting price tag often associated with high-end mechanical keyboards. The Poseidon Z will set you back a very affordable £53 / $89, which is around 40% cheaper than most Cherry switch options that are on the market with a similar specification.

Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Blue Switch Mechanical Gaming
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cherry MX is no longer the only recognized manufacturer of mechanical switches in the market (although certainly the most popular) and although some people feel that others can't reach the same level of quality due to lack of experience/expertise i believe that manufacturing a good mechanical switch is not nuclear science and the fact that even gaming peripheral manufacturers like Razer have decided to do so on their own is proof enough. That being said there's a good amount of research that needs to go into the design and manufacture of a mechanical switch but since Cherry MX is the standard currently others need only to "clone" their solutions. Roughly a month ago we had our first encounter with the brand new Kailh Brown mechanical switches which are basically clones of the very well-known Cherry MX Browns and the results were very good. Well to have a better opinion for Kailh mechanical switches today we decided to take a look at the Poseidon Z mechanical gaming keyboard featuring their Blue ones.

CM Storm QuickFire Rapid-i Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 2:51A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For years now Cooler Master has brought to the masses affordable and clean minimalist looking mechanical keyboards in the form of the QuickFire lineup. While the aesthetic stands in contrast to the rugged looks and military themes of their other signature products, the attention to quality Cooler Master has become so trusted upon is still there. The original tenkeyless Quick Fire Rapid was popular due to its value, space saving functionality, and solid construction, but backlights were on the list as the most requested feature. Earlier this year, the Rapid-i with Cherry MX Brown switches with individually backlit white LEDs was released and now a new Cherry MX Blue switch model has been introduced which we are reviewing."

Supreme Full Color Illumination Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Sun, Aug 24 2014 | 11:53P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many attempts have been made in the past from several manufacturers to change the concept behind the keyboard but when you try to change something that has been used by 100% of both PC and MAC users for several decades then the odds are obviously against you. Because of that manufacturers decided to further improve the keyboard instead rather than try and replace it with something else entirely and as you all know the result of that was the introduction of the much sturdier mechanical switches that offered better tactile and audible feedback. However although mechanical switches alone are what professionals around the world look for in a keyboard the same is not the case for gamers who are always on the lookout for something unique to place on their desks. Tesoro may not be one of the old players in the market but they know very well what gamers want and their latest Lobera Supreme Full Color Illumination Mechanical Gaming Keyboard which we have here with us today may actually have what it takes to become one of the best-selling models of 2014.

Roccat ISKU FX Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Aug 22 2014 | 10:32A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ROCCAT is a German company that produces gaming peripherals including gaming mice and keyboards, mouse pads, and sound systems. The ISKU FX is ROCCAT?s mid-range gaming keyboard, clocking in at $79.99. The ISKU FX features multicolor illumination, 8 configurable media and hotkeys, ROCCAT TALK, macro recording, dedicated profile switches, 36 macro keys, and an extra large wrist rest for comfort during long gaming sessions. The features and illumination options make the ISKU FX an attractive option, but can it compete with the many other gaming keyboards in the market? In this Benchmark Reviews article I will discuss the many features of the ROCCAT ISKU FX, the accompanying driver software, and how this keyboard compares to others options on the market."

Risen 5-Years Later Review
     Thu, Aug 21 2014 | 10:32A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is Risen a game worth returning to after five years? In my opinion, yes. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an RPG experience, which, by the way, is open world, and willing to invest the time into completing it. The graphics are dated, but also do some things right that will never be old. The story grabbed me as a return on investing some time into the game. The gameplay was fun, but has some issues that mar the experience. Fortunately the bulk of the game consists of fun experiences. While the negatives of the Risen experience do stand out to me, so too do the positives. Weighing them out, the positives are greater, so the experience, although imperfect, is still enjoyable and worth having. Just be ready to take the time to get stuff done, potentially with a lot of reloads."

Gigabyte Aivia Osmium Review @ ocaholic
     Thu, Aug 21 2014 | 8:59A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aivia Osmium is the first mechanical keyboard from Gigabyte. This keyboard features a palm rest, blue backlight and multimedia keys and we are curious to find out how this thing does. In addition Gigabyte used a USB2.0 and a USB3.0 header on this keyboard and there is also a very good bundle with key-caps remover and additional key-caps."

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.
