Gladiator Computers APOCALYPSE Gaming PC Review
     Sat, Feb 27 2016 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aria is one of the leading technology retailers in the UK and stocks a huge range of components from luxury 21:9 3440×1440 monitors to extremely affordable pre-assembled gaming PCs. Their custom PC range falls under the GLADIATOR brand and aims to provide an enthralling gaming experience while offering superb customer satisfaction. Clearly, any system is a considered purchase, and it’s vital to have your initial investment backed by a comprehensive warranty. Thankfully, Gladiator supports their builds with a 4-year labour and 1-year parts guarantee. This level of service is often a key selling point for consumers without any hardware experience and feel overwhelmed by the almost endless combination of component choices.

Rise of the Tomb Raider
     Thu, Feb 25 2016 | 6:04P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The graphics look good, but the performance was not that great for me. Turning down some settings will probably help there, but I cannot name a specific in-game option to really help. Having the optimized drivers installed does help, so be sure you have those. The story is definitely good and also does a good job of providing a fitting context to this new Lara Croft and the previous title. The gameplay does a great deal right and still has a good amount of depth to its mechanics, putting it above just 'right.' Really it is a game worth playing, just watch out for some possible performance issues. I do want to say that I am fairly confident a lot of those issues will be resolved with future game and driver updates, but that is just my speculation based on how I have seen other games improve post-launch.”

Corsair STRAFE RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Cherry MX Silent) Review
     Thu, Feb 25 2016 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The upgraded STRIFE which is now baptized STRIFE RGB is built on the same chassis, but it does also come with important improvements like the latest generation of Cherry MX Silent switches which are also RGB LED-enabled; the inner support plate is now white for allowing the LED light to shine through the switches. The keyboard left and right sides are now white and get accompanied by a string of white LED lights."

Cougar 450K Gaming Keyboard Review
     Wed, Feb 24 2016 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Cougar has really impressed us with their line of gaming peripherals. We’ve already taken a look at the high-end 700K, 600K, and 500K gaming keyboard from Cougar. I actually still use the 600K as my main keyboard on my desktop. Today we will be taking a look at a very budget friendly ($59) keyboard in Cougar’s 450K. This gaming keyboard features Cougar’s own hybrid mechanical switches, which are designed to give you the same tactile feedback as mechanical switches, but with enhanced durability. The keyboard also features 3-color backlighting, 10 programmable keys, a splash-proof design and much more! Is this the gaming gaming keyboard you are looking for? Read on as we find out!"

ASUS Cerberus Gaming Peripherals Review
     Mon, Feb 22 2016 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Picking the right gaming peripherals can be a tricky endeavour as there is a huge range of products from an equally large selection of gaming brands out there to choose from. Asus are one of the most established and recognisable gaming brands on the market today, and while they may be better known for their high-end graphics cards and motherboards, they’ve proven time and time again that they can make some great gaming peripherals too.

Razer Wildcat Review
     Tue, Feb 16 2016 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer have been working away to refine their game pads and have since released various controllers including the Sabertooth for 360, and now the Wildcat for Xbox One. Enthusiast/tournament game pads are now in full swing, the overwhelming popularity of the Xbox Elite controller solidifies this fact, yet some haven't quite found the perfect partner with the Elite controller. Some find it too heavy for prolonged use and others are getting frustrated about the back paddles are too easy to hit, causing mistakes/miss clicks in game. These properties are strong blows from Razer, with the Wildcat weighing a mere 260g, and having 2 additional bumper buttons on the top, and two aluminium triggers on the underside.

Rise of the Tomb Raider PC Game analysis
     Thu, Feb 11 2016 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in 2013, the Tomb Raider reboot impressed us all on the PC side with its graphical features- the game even went on to become one of our ‘go to‘ benchmarks for GPU reviews. Now, after a brief stint as a Xbox exclusive, the sequel ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider’ has landed on the PC but does the port live up to the same standard as the original? Let’s find out!

Input Club Infinity ErgoDox Ergonomic Keyboard Kit @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Feb 08 2016 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Almost exactly one year ago I sat down and took a look at the original Massdrop ErgoDox kit. A few months after that Massdrop in combination with what would later be called Input Club announced that they had been working on a completely new designed called the Infinity ErgoDox. It’s important to note that the original ErgoDox was originally designed by Dominic Beauchamp aka Dox. Later the Geekhack and Deskthority keyboard community’s worked with Massdrop to provide a full kit. The ErgoDox isn’t exclusive to Massdrop but the specific design that I reviewed last year was. There are actually multiple places where you can put together your own parts or now even buy a pre-built model as well. The Infinity ErgoDox though is a new design based on the original but taking into account what they learned from the 60% Infinity Keyboard that Massdrop worked on with Input Club. The overall shape is the same but the Infinity ErgoDox uses a proper backplate and makes big steps forward with things like USB 3.0, NKRO, an LED screen, backlighting, and stabilizers. So today I’m going to dig into the new kit and see what it is all about, have a little fun building it all, then test out the new design and see how it compares to the original.

G910 Orion Spark
     Sat, Feb 06 2016 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Logitech continues its push and re-entry into the gaming peripherals market in 2016, this time adding another keyboard under the Orion brand to the mix. The Logitech G G810 Orion Spectrum is, as the name implies, an RGB mechanical keyboard using the company's proprietary Romer-G switches. But despite the similarity in model numbers to the G910 Orion Spark announced in late 2014, the G810 has some significant design and functionality changes. This new offering is cleaner, less faceted (both in key caps and design) but comes much closer to the feel and function than the tenkeyless G410 from last year. Let's take a look at how the G810 changes things up for Logitech G.

Cooler Master Quick Fire XTi Review
     Wed, Feb 03 2016 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Available with Cherry MX switches in Red, Blue or Brown that are set in a minimalistic, heavy duty body the Quick Fire XTi offers more than meets the eye, considering it is a driverless plug & play keyboard. The customisable per-key lighting uses just the red/blue LEDs to create a palette of 35 colours, on top of that, there is an on-board macro recording feature too which can be saved across 4 profiles.

Rise of the Tomb Raider has been widely praised for its gameplay and visuals and now that the PC version is out, we are taking it for a spin.

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.
