Panasonic TC-L42ET5 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Aug 10 2012 | 3:57P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At $1,099 for the 42-inch Panasonic TC-L42ET5, it`s an affordable HDTV. But its picture quality doesn`t measure up to Vizio`s or LG`s passive 3D screens, and doesn`t come close to matching active 3D HDTVs. Still, the set`s price and feature set helps make up for its picture failings, and if you want an affordable HDTV that does a lot, it`s a solid choice."

Sentey Extreme Division GS-6000 II Optimus @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Aug 08 2012 | 3:39P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are familiar with Sentey, you`ll recognize a certain pattern they have when releasing their computer cases. They generally release a style of case and then release a few more with the same style and some minor changes. There will be an R version of the case that has red highlights, a B version with blue, W for white, and so on. In some case series they will also release a V version with a different side panel (usually windowed). In the case of the Optimus series, as well as a couple of other series, Sentey has now released a II version of the case. At Benchmark Reviews, we have a Sentey GS-6000 II Optimus case on hand and ready break down to explore what they`ve changed on this one."

Sony Bravia HX750 review: affordable all-round TV
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 4:45P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first thing you notice is that Sony went with a completely different design for the HX750 compared to the HX850. The seamless, monolithic design made way for a traditional edge around the screen, and the long, wide base of the HX850 has been replaced by a thin, u-shaped foot with only two ends sticking out from under the TV. It's an attractive design. The screen itself has been treated with an anti-reflection top layer, which we are big fans of. The HX750 has virtually the same features as the more expensive HX850, only the engine is a bit less advanced.

Samsung Series 9 (NP900X4C) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 3:39P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung Series 9 15-inch laptop does a lot to improve upon the previous model from last year and it certainly shows. It has a very portable and attractive design and a nice-looking display. It has solid performance thanks to the third-gen Intel CPU and extra long battery life."

ASRock Vision 3D 252B HTPC Review
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 9:03A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we first took a look at the ASRock Vision 3D 137B with NVIDIA 3DTV Play last year, we were quite impressed with the machine. It offered excellent all-around performance for a system in its class and had an extensive feature set that included Blu-Ray and 3D video playback capabilities, all wrapped up in what we considered to be an attractive enclosure. So, when ASRock came to us with an updated model outfitted with a newer CPU, GPU, and other components, we were eager to check it out. Once it arrived we were pleased to see ASRock hadn’t messed around with the system’s aesthetics and after prepping it with an OS and various other apps, the system took residence in our home theater setup for some real-world testing. Since its arrival, the ASRock Vision 3D 252B HTPC we’ll be showing you here today has been our primary playback device for Blu-Ray discs—including 3D titles—, DVDs, a host of videos and movies stored on a multi-terabyte NAS array, and for streaming content from the web...

Thecus N5550 review: fast NAS with HDMI
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 9:00A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Calling the Thecus N5550 a NAS is almost selling it short, because it's much more than that. It's a network server for at home or in the office, and you can use it to download files, as a digital photo album, and for connecting IP cameras. You can connect it to a computer obviously, but also tablets and smartphones let you access it via apps.

Sony Bravia HX850: great picture quality for a good price
     Wed, Aug 01 2012 | 9:00A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sony has created a very good series with the HX850 product line. We like the monolithic design and the wide, long base, but would have preferred a non-glossy finish on the screen itself. The picture quality of the 55-inch model we tested is excellent, and the X-Reality Pro engine is effective at sharpening the image and filtering out noise.

NZXT Aperture M Multi-Media Hub @ Pro-Clockers
     Tue, Jul 31 2012 | 10:29A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Aperture M is definitely a simple tool like all the other readers out there but NZXT had enough imagination to make it flow with today`s popular styled cases. The Aperture M has the same mesh material that we see on a large majority of the cases on the shelf at your local electronic store. By doing this the builder can keep the mesh style flowing. "

An HTPC Perspective: Get Excited About CableCARDs and Tuners
     Sat, Jul 28 2012 | 12:32A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that weve talked (a lot) about the hardware and the interesting things it can do, lets take a visual look at some hardware! On the next page, well take a quick visual tour of a CableCARD and the HDHomeRun Prime TV tuner. SiliconDust isn`t the only game in town though, there are plenty of other good tuners out there. The HDHR Prime was just the one that worked the best for my specific setup. Which ones do you use in your HTPCs?"

WD TV Live Digital MultiMedia Player @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Jul 20 2012 | 1:48A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until recently digital multimedia could only be enjoyed on the computer, and with some extra effort it could be shared onto a portable electronic device. But high-definition movies and music are really best enjoyed on a home theater system, with larger screen and powerful speakers. Now that HDTVs and wireless networking are commonplace an era of attached digital media players has begun, and the WD TV Live helps make the transition easy. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the WD TV Live high-definition digital media player, model WDBHG70000NBK-HESN, and we evaluate how well it entertains us."

Patriot PBO Alpine Android 2.2 Media Player Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Jul 07 2012 | 4:25P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the PBO Alpine, Patriot is taking a 1080p HD Media Player and adding in the flexibility and stability of the Android 2.2 OS teamed with an ARM926 processor. The Android OS takes the PBO Alpine to levels we have not seen in a simple, stand-alone media player, adding the capability to side load thousands of apps to tailor the experience to exactly your liking. Straight out of the box, the PBO Alpine offers a rich and powerful set of features, and keeps it all contained into a very simple installation and interface. The unit itself is very uncluttered, with HDMI, and optical and stereo mini audio outputs, as well as two USB 2.0, Ethernet and optional WiFi (through USB) to connect directly to USB media and your network. An SD card slot is onboard for additional storage for apps and media, and can also be used as a media input should you wish to pull a card directly from your camera/video recorder and view instantly.///"

Dune HD Smart H1 Media Player Review @MissingRemote
     Sun, Jul 01 2012 | 1:47A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Connected media streamers, like the pair from Roku and NETGEAR that we reviewed recently, focus on providing access to IP content but generally cannot handle local media well enough (if at all) to be a viable unifying solution. Until we have enough bandwidth, and services able to deliver quality audio/video services over the Internet, those devices act as a supplement to players like the Dune HD Smart H1 that we will look at today. Locally cached content includes a diverse set of file types and formats, so H1?s support for disc-less Blu-ray, M2TS, MKV, and all of the codecs commonly found within is an essential starting point. *"

Sony Bravia KDL-55HX850
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 12:02P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"HDTVs in Sony's HX850 series offer lots of features, accurate colors, and a crystal clear picture, all in a stylish, energy-efficient frame. Despite their relatively low peak white output this edge-mounted LED line delivers very good image quality in both 2D and 3D, and the picture looks good from all angles."

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.
