LG 84LM960V / LG 84LM9600 UHD TV review
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:03A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We tested the LG 84LM960V / LG 84LM9600 UHD TV, which is the first UHD television that we’ve reviewed. The detail and depth is amazing on this screen, provided you watch UHD material that’s still quite difficult to find. Full HD material is barely upscaled, however. The price tag is pretty daunting, even if this is actually the most affordable 84-inch UHD TV on the market. In the UK it costs £22,499, on mainland Europe its costs around 15,000 euro, and in the US $19,999.

In the first part of a series on auditing and penetration testing (pentesting), we introduce the concepts and tools for putting all that security to the test. Well also talk about our pentest platform of choice: Pwn Plug."

3-in-1 Mini DisplayPort to HDMI / DisplayPort / DVI Adapter Review @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Jan 08 2013 | 11:24A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past year or so weve seen many laptops and video cards that are coming equipped with mini DisplayPort connections but those laptops and video cards dont come with adapters so you can actually make use of those ports. Today Ive got a short review for you of a product that many of you might find very useful, its a 3-in-1 adapter that goes from mini DisplayPort output to DVI, HDMI or stand DisplayPort video inputs. The product is just a small white box really, not much special or exciting about it but it is inexpensive and it does the job it needs to do. "

News - Samsung UN55ES8000 55 inch LED HDTV Review @ Overclockers Online
     Sun, Jan 06 2013 | 9:42P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The UN55ES8000 is definitely a stunning TV when you see it in any living room. The new stand matches the almost invisible bezel making the TV a work of art even when not powered up. With a price point of under $2500, it is actually priced almost five hundred less than the Panasonic and a full grand less than Sonys on Futureshop. This may seem shocking for a TV of such caliber and high caliber it is"

Philips PD7030/12 Portable DVD Player Review
     Tue, Jan 01 2013 | 9:47A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far back as i can remember whenever i rode in the back seat of a car or in a bus i always wanted to be able to watch my favorite movies and series on a rather large screen and not the one from my MP4 player. Naturally not many people can afford to have an 2din in-dash DVD player in their car while even less can afford to have headrest LCD screens plugged into a central DVD console (to be honest with you that seems a bit overkill unless you have kids). So it didn`t take long for manufacturers such as Philips, Sony and Panasonic to come up with portable DVD players that also came with 7+ inch screens attached to them. The only problem is that when these devices made their debut the price was so high that it also wasn`t easy for everyone to have one. Luckily 5+ years later this is no longer the case and so today we will be taking a look at the latest entry level offering by Philips the PD7030/12 7 Portable DVD Player."

ViewSonic PLED-W200 Portable Business Projector
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 9:00A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are consumer projectors of nearly every shape and size and for a myriad of purposes. From big, feature-rich monsters ideal for large home theaters to tiny pico projectors (which can now be found in some smartphones), there are projectors available now that let users display photos or video for a small audience almost anywhere. In the middle of the market there is a wide swathe of options. One of the target demographics is business travelers who need to make presentations on the road. Those folks need something that’s compact and lightweight, can connect to a variety of media sources in a pinch, and project an image bright enough to be seen in rooms with lots of ambient light. And that’s what ViewSonic is looking to deliver with the palm-sized PLED-W200 we'll be showing you here...

Samsung PN51E6500EF Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 10:13A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Contrary to popular belief, plasma HDTVs aren`t dead. They`re less energy efficient than their LED-backlit counterparts, but Samsung, Panasonic, and LG continue to make solid plasma screens. The 51-inch Samsung PN51E6500EF offers plenty of online services and apps, out-of-the-box 3D and most importantly, a great picture."

Posted by: STAFF
1.html,In this article we test, benchmark and review the Samsung 840 Pro SSD. What a stunning piece of technology this is. An SSD that is extremely fast and actually amongst the handful of fastest storage units we have ever tested. Samsung created a little monster with the 840 Pro series of SSDs, they are remarkably fast in pretty much any and all tests from our benchmark suite. Head on over into the review."

WD Red 3TB NAS Hard Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 2:17P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Western Digital Red series was designed for NAS servers and it leaves us wondering why no one did this before! Industry analysts believe that the NAS market will greatly expand in the years to come and WD now has a product to fill the void that was present. Buying the least expensive drive at your desired capacity and using it in a NAS was the popular way to find drives to populate a NAS, but now there is a hard drive series made just for NAS and RAID environments..."

Cutting the Cord Part 3: Building your HTPC - OS Install and Tuning
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 1:22P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I mentioned before, I originally was planning to do this build with Windows 8 Professional and the Windows 8 Media Center pack, but theres a few things that Microsoft has removed from Media Center in the new version that make using it for a Media Center a non-starter in my opinion. Not being able to boot directly into Media Center and having to boot into Metro and then launch Media Center is a deal breaker for me so I fell back to whats been working great for me these past few years, Windows 7 Home Premium."

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.
