Acer Aspire TimelineU M5 Review
     Mon, Aug 20 2012 | 4:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
More than last year, 2012's ultrabooks have been and will continue to be about tradeoffs: low-res screens vs. high-res, TN panels vs. IPS, snappy SSDs vs. capacious HDDs, dual-core CPUs vs. quad-core, 2GB vs. 8GB, power-sipping IGPs vs. muscle-bound GPUs, mainstream vs. premium pricing, and so on. In other words, shopping for an ultrabook is eerily similar to shopping for any other notebook, which raises concerns about the long-term marketing potential of ultrabooks as a special sub-classification of premium laptops. Acer's new TimelineU makes its own compromises. Our review unit touts a full-size backlit keyboard, 500GB of storage, a GeForce GT 640M LE GPU, an optical drive, an eight-hour battery life and an attractive $830 price tag. Naturally, the question is: what's the catch? Let's get to the bottom of that.

     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you have never used a mechanical keyboard before, you will learn firsthand today why they have become popular and in high demand with professionals and gamers alike. Whether you`re looking for speed, precision, comfort or just the pleasing sound of the click clack at your fingers tips, this Model S Professional will not let you down. The mechanical key switches let you know that you have hit the mark with each key stroke. As you might have guessed by now, we were very impressed with the Model S during our run with it, but that fact alone isn`t enough for you to decide whether this is the keyboard for you. So let`s take a close look at the features it has to offer."

MetalGear 160-Lumens 3xAA LED Flashlight Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 10:08A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today another Dorcy model makes its way through my hands in the form of the Dorcy (46-4415) MetalGear 160-Lumens 3xAA LED flashlight. The model is reminiscent of the older large incandescent flashlights that used to need those big D sized batteries to operate. Well this one contains a high-power LED that Dorcy says is a lifetime bulb, never needing to replace, and operates on just 3xAA batteries -- the types that you can purchase anywhere. It has an aluminum alloy metal body as the name suggests, meaning its extremely strong and we`ll see if this throw-back type flashlight is a step beyond previous generations."

Rosewill, Newegg`s innocuous house brand, caters to mechanical keyboard enthusiasts with four nearly identical specimens priced in the $100-110 range. Each one has a different type of Cherry MX mechanical key switch: blue, brown, black, and red. We`ve reviewed all four keyboards, compared and contrasted the switch types, and picked out a favorite."

REVIEW: Roccat Kone[+] and ISKU Keyboard @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 9:52P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some things just go well together. Peanut butter and jam, Ferrari and beautiful women, and a keyboard and mouse. Of those examples, there`s one that tops the rest, but suffice it to say that at least in the computer realm, the keyboard and mouse are likely the most critical combinations possible for just about everyone using a desktop. The trick, then, is to not only find both a mouse and keyboard that work well for you, but ideally a pair that work well together. That can be a daunting task, with literally hundreds of these products on the market. And certainly for the gaming enthusiast crowd, who tend to be a particular and vocal bunch, the mouse and keyboard have to bring something interesting and compelling to the mix. Can the sleek styling and innovative features live up to gamers` performance expectations?"

Roccat Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard - BCCHardware
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 7:44P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ROCCAT ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard isnt mechanical and it almost reminds me of my Microsoft Gaming Keyboard it terms of overall feel. The keys are built pretty flat on this unit - but not quite laptop flat. It seems to be responsive with its anti-ghosting end of things and it all goes toward making it quicker and offering a better response time for typing and gaming. . ."

NiteCore Smart PD D10sp R2 LED Flashlight Long-Term Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Wed, Aug 08 2012 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in June 2010, I reviewed my first LED flashlight on ModSynergy and the Dorcy flashlight got me hooked on LED flashlights as a hobby. Since then I`ve been intrigued with the world of flashlights. Flashlights have come a long way from incandescent models that are taxing on batteries and not as bright to the new high power LED variants that are much more powerful and also capable of being powered by a single AA battery you can pick up just about anywhere. Flashlights come in a variety of sizes and shapes, but not many of them are practical for every day usage. Today I am reviewing a flashlight that looks to fill in that mould and be a practical flashlight that you can carry and use anywhere. The flashlight falls into the EDC (Every Day Carry) category and we`ll see if the Nitecore D10sp R2 is worth your money."

Corsair Vengeance Lineup Part one - Keyboards @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 9:05A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every once in a while you find a company that is able to take a normal product that everyone has and change it in a way that makes everyone wonder why it was never done before. As much as it pains me to say this, Apple was one of those companies. In the pc components business there are a few as well, but the company that stands out the most to me would be Corsair. Every time corsair enters a new market, I find myself impressed with what they have to offer. Even though it seems like they are always jumping into random markets, they take their time and research what everyone has to offer and what people would really want to see. This week we are going to take a look at their new Vengeance lineup of mice and keyboards to see if they have done the same in these new markets. Today we are going to start with their new keyboards, lets dig in and see what they are all about."

Gigabyte Aivia Xenon @ Bjorn3D
     Fri, Aug 03 2012 | 3:57P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Bringing the functionality of a touchpad to the traditional mouse, the GIGABYTE Aivia Xenon is one of the more unique mouse we have seen lately. With PC moving toward more touch based interface, would this dual mode mouse be the tool that you need for the upcoming Windows 8?"

Corsair Vengeance K90 Gaming Keyboard Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 9:20P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The K90 is a high-end gaming keyboard from Corsair`s Vengeance gaming line. The Corsair Vengeance K90 keyboard uses mechanical cherry MX red switches for the action and typing keys while silicone-dome key switches are used for the macro, function and nine center block keys. Unlike other keyboards, there is no bezel surrounding the keypads on the Corsair Vengeance K90 but the keys sit exposed on a brushed aluminum surface. All the keys are backlit with a blue LED on the Corsair Vengeance K90 and can be adjusted to 33%, 66% and 100% brightness levels. The Corsair Vengeance K90 has an MSRP of $129.99 USD and comes with a 2-year warranty.///"

CM Storm Trigger Keyboard Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we tested the CM Storm QuickFire Pro keyboard, we pointed out that it was a simple model, with neither extra USB ports nor programmable functions, and it had only a few illuminated keys. Now the company is releasing the Trigger, which is basically a more advanced version of the QuickFire Pro, with everything that was missing previously. Let`s describe the product and then evaluate the new features."

Gigabyte Aivia Osmium Gaming Keyboard Review
     Thu, Jul 26 2012 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While writers will often elect for a natural or ergonomic keyboard gamers are a little different. This group tends to concern themselves less with the shape and more with what the device can do and how it will help them win games. In this review I'll be looking at the latest mechanical keyboard from Gigabyte called the Osmium.

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.

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.
