Func KB-460 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Jan 18 2014 | 4:17P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Func is a very well known company when it comes to gaming, I know they make some great mice and mousepads but theyve just introduced a keyboard. For review today I have the Func KB-460 mechanical gaming keyboard which features Cherry MX red switches and red LED backlighting and the ability to program or should I say re-program the keys on the keyboard with preset commands or custom macros. For me mechanical keyboards are the best, once you use one you wont go back to the membrane style surely, but they do come at a cost and there are many to choose from in terms of switch types. The Cherry MX Reds of the KB-460 are excellent, at least for me they are, I prefer reds over the other types, I like the blues or reds really as they are clicky and have a more tactile feel to them. The KB-460 also features red LEDs beneath every single key so theyre all lit up and you can choose from four levels of brightness. Read on "

Bioshock 2 3-Years Later Review
     Sat, Jan 18 2014 | 3:33P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Should we save Eleanor from the Family and Sofia Lamb, or leave her`s and Rapture`s fate alone? That depends on how much you enjoy first-person shooters. BioShock 2 offers a solid FPS and fun experience, with many mechanical improvements over the previous game, but is otherwise unremarkable. The story does not stand out and the graphics are aging; aging gracefully, but still aging. If you are an FPS fan and looking for another title to enjoy, BioShock 2 is a fairly easy recommendation to give with its refined combat mechanics. If you are looking for a game with more story-meat on its bones, then you can probably skip over this, unless you are very interested in all BioShock games."

NVIDIA GRID Beta Testing on SHIELD - An Optimistic First Hands On
     Thu, Jan 16 2014 | 10:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall my experience with the first beta of GRID was very positive including both latency and image quality. Yes, there were definitely times when we got a lot of macro-blocking due to bandwidth hiccups, but they were infrequent. You could tell pretty much anytime there was motion on the screen that you were watching a video rather than native gameplay, but I think the effect is much less apparent now than it was when I first tried services like OnLive."

SteelSeries Rival @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jan 10 2014 | 4:58P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to mice, SteelSeries over the past few years has basically stuck with a single design that they have used on multiple mice. We first saw it with the Xai and later the Sensei but they have also used it on various branded mice and a smaller version on the Kinzu as well. When SteelSeries announced that they were bringing out a new mouse design with the Rival I was very interested, but also a little worried about messing with a good thing. After a short wait, we finally have the Rival in hand and can put it through its paces and see how the new design performs."

iBUYPOWER SBX Steam machine - CES2014
     Tue, Jan 07 2014 | 4:15P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

There are very few instances where one product category can leap frog over to another and make a profound impact. Today, iBUYPOWER, together with Valve, is making one such leap.

Introducing the iBUYPOWER SBX Steam machine, anultra-simplified system designed to do one thing: entertain. Melding together the simplicity of a traditional game console, but harnessing power usually available to only high-end desktop PCs, iBUYPOWER is able to usher in both performance and content unheard of in the living room space.

For more information, please see http://www.ibuypower.com/Product/SBX

Designed in Los Angeles, iBUYPOWER labored to create a highly tuned and optimized system that would deliver a sustainable 60 frames-per second gaming experience at true high-definition resolutions. Powered by multi-core processors in both AMD and Intel flavors and paired with the latest in graphics technology from AMD, customers will be able to jump a full generation ahead of the latest game consoles.

"What we really wanted to do was make an impact in the living room. We wanted to really show the world that the power of desktop gaming machine can be experienced in the living room in a totally seamless way," said Darren Su, Co-founder and VP of iBUYPOWER. "All preconceptions of what entertainment in the living room should and can be, are out the door."

Customers can expect an out-of-box experience unlike any other. Every iBUYPOWER SBX comes with a Steam Controller so customers can jump into the action immediately. All aspects of design and hardware are optimized for a gaming experience on Steam OS that sheds away legacy PC overhead. Make no mistake about it; this is not a PC.

iBUYPOWER'sSteambox will be available later in 2014 and will ship with a Steam controller for $499 and will be available in matte black and white.

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.
