Ozone Strike Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 9:01A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In conclusion, the Cherry Blacks are just like how everyone explained they would feel, which is heavy. I felt like I was really working to use my keyboard some nights and after long hours of game play, I just felt tired and missing key presses. Over time I was able to get used to it and gain some extra finger strength for the switches. It`s a style of switch I`ve gotten to try for the first time."

Wesena ITX2 Mini-ITX SFF Chassis Review @MissingRemote
     Thu, Aug 11 2011 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The quest for the perfect and smallest home theater PC (HTPC) is one that has gained momentum over the last few years. We have seen the proliferation of these small form factor (SFF) Mini-ITX cases first hand in our reviews of the Habey EMC-600B and another offering from Wesena, the ITX7 chassis. The Wesena ITX2 is essentially the little brother of the ITX7, sharing many similarities to it but in an even smaller enclosure. As with any device there are compromises made when making something small even smaller, but do the benefits along with the lower cost make the ITX2 the best option?

Steelseries Shift MMO keyboard Review
     Wed, Aug 10 2011 | 12:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After a long period of usage, keyboards become dirty. Sometimes they lose buttons. Sometimes this happens because you smack it at the wall in anger. Whatever reason you have for getting a new keyboard, you also need good reasons to buy a specific one. Maybe one that can be cleaned easily, maybe one that has better resistance to walls. Introducing, the Shift keyboard. It’s a multimedia chameleon board with removable keyset, aimed at hardcore gamers. Offering a skeleton backpplate which can be used with specialized keysets, which in turn can be programmed through the Steelseries’ Engine software. Let’s see if the Shift can convince you as well as us."

"The somewhat funky-smelling rubbery back side provides a glue-like substance to really stick to your desk. Even when picking up the edge or corner of the pad you cannot slide this thing across your desk like any other pad. You can’t even forcibly move the pad without picking up at least half the pad which means it isn’t going anywhere once you have it where you want it. I found this a very great property in fast moving games that require a lot of mouse movement."

SilverStone introduces industry's first PCIe cards with 19pin USB 3.
     Fri, Aug 05 2011 | 2:37P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

August 5, 2011 [New Taipei, Taiwan] SilverStone Technology, one of the premier companies in computer component design, announces the immediate worldwide availability of its latest USB 3.0 products, EC01, EC02, and EC03.

EC02 is a compact ExpressCard with USB 3.0 port designed to fit flush with ExpressCard slot equipped laptop.

www.pcstats.com

EC01 and EC03 in particular, are the first PCI Express cards on the market to feature the 19pin USB 3.0 header, a connection standard that has become an increasingly common fixture on motherboards released in 2011.  These products enable users to add USB 3.0 front ports without resorting to routing cables out of the chassis or replacing existing motherboards.

SilverStone Technology was also the first company to introduce retail computer chassis equipped with 19pin USB 3.0 connector when it released Milo ML03 HTPC chassis in December 2010.  It is looking to aggressively populate its product with this connection standard throughout 2011 and beyond.  Current users of popular SilverStone chassis such as RAVEN RV02 and Fortress FT02 may purchase cable kit (part number G11303260) to upgrade to USB 3.0 ports with connector that is compatible with 19pin USB 3.0 header.

eSPORTS MEKA Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Mon, Aug 01 2011 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we're looking at the Tt eSPORTS MEKA Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. "Challenge is the game" is their motto and challenge, they do. Upon receiving the keyboard, I was highly impressed with the box art and style. It was a sign of things to come. The keyboard itself is quite heavy for its size - being that it's mechanical would help its weight. The MEKA comes with a braided cable which helps it not only in looks, but practicality - the cable is similar thickness to the Logitech G35 headset's braided cable (as an example). It's even described as "military grade". As for looks, it's a great looking matte-finish black color with a great red styling near the edges and the "Tt" logo also. Red LEDs come from the caps lock, scroll lock and number lock keys. On to the keys themselves, which are cherry black mechanical switch keys that enable "excellent gaming elastic capacity with life expectancy of up to 50 million keystrokes". The keys themselves feel similar to most mechanical keyboards, with a defining 'click' for each press. I type at close to or above 100 wpm and my typing speed dropped easily, by 30%."

Enermax Aurora Lite keyboard
     Mon, Aug 01 2011 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Enermax Aurora Lite keyboard has an ultra-slim design that makes it very space efficient. The simplicity in the design of this keyboard embraces style, quality and functionality. Although the keyboard itself is small and thin, it has two USB 2.0 connections embedded and a fullsize NumPad. It has a great-looking black brushed-aluminum exterior which helps it stand out among other keyboards.

QPAD MK-80 Keyboard Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Jul 11 2011 | 9:40A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MK-80 full mechanical keyboard not only has the same features we have come to know and love with the current run of mechanical keyboards but something I have been begging manufacturers for, backlighting. This of course isn`t the only feature of the QPAD MK-80 as there are a few other items that set this keyboard apart from the ever increasing crowd. Rather than stick with the tried and tested Cherry MX Black switches, the QPAD MK-80 has opted for the much more tactile Cherry Blue switches which is certainly an interesting proposition given that they are very different (as different as keyboard switches can be) from the Cherry MX Black switches. How this transfers to the performance of the keyboard we shall investigate later in the review."

BitFenix Colossus Venom Case Review
     Wed, Jul 06 2011 | 9:01A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Upon receiving the SteelSeries Shift, I wasn't too excited to tell you the truth. I don't know why, but I think it just might be the amount of marketing power Logitech have. But it all disappeared once I looked at the box and started playing with it. The SteelSeries Shift box is actually quite attractive. Upon taking the keyboard out, you start to admire the look and feel of it. It's not too heavy or too light; the color feels just right (and that is my first rhyme for the day!). How does it feel to type on? Amazing! Compared to the mechanical-based gaming keyboards, this is a large step up. I could type as fast as I could and I never felt restricted and gaming wise? Well, wow! No issues and it will now be my standard, everyday keyboard. I tested out the Shift in various games like Crysis 2, Team Fortress 2, Bad Company 2 and just this morning, Duke Nukem Forever. It is responsive as hell, instant-response to key presses and just a joy to use."

Logisys 12V Remote Kit
     Thu, Jun 30 2011 | 4:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Logisys 12V Remote kit is an excellent tool for computer mod enthusiasts or for those who dabble in electronics projects. The remote is a great way to show off a cool LED, cold cathode light, or any mod for a computer or to be used in that nifty science fair project. A slight understanding of electricity is useful for people who would like to work with the 12V remote kit, but this review will present a very easy way to configure this remote for users with little to no electricity knowledge. Very easy to work with, Hardware-Pacers staff was able to put together a useful configuration for the 12V Remote kit in under 30 minutes."

Corsair TX750 V2 750W & TX850 V2 850W Power Supplies
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 4:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The printed circuit boards on both power supplies look identical but there are some differences. The values of two main smoothing capacitors in the top left hand corner are different on both boards and there are differences on the secondary side on the right hand side. These differences are good to see because it shows the board has actually been upgraded to cater for the higher power. The capacitors are all good quality Japanese branded components of the more welcome 105°C working temperature rating."

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.
