     Wed, Apr 27 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After reviewing a few different GTX550 Ti graphic cards it does start to lose its flavor, especially when the results can be so similar. So it is a major relief to get a refreshing view of a reference card from MSI.

Intel DH67CF Mini-ITX Board mit Core i5-2300 Quadcore reviewed
     Wed, Apr 27 2011 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Über zwei Jahre ist es her, seitdem wir zuletzt ein Intel Mini-ITX Mainboard ausführlich getestet haben. Damals hatte ich das "DQ45EK" (Review Link) aus der Executive Series sehr positiv getestet. Nun ist uns seitens CarTFT.com das brandneue "DH67CF" aus der Multimedia Series auf Intel H67 Chipsatzbasis für neueste Core i5 und i3 Prozessoren für einen umfangreichen Test zur Verfügung gestellt worden. Ich hatte ja bereits Mitte Februar einige Unboxing- und Assembling Pictures des Boards sowie des Testsystems präsentieren können. Nachdem bereits das zuletzt von uns getestete mITX Board aus der Multimedia-Reihe sich mit seinen Testergebnissen durchaus sehen lassen konnte, darf man gespannt sein, inwieweit Intel diesen hohen Ansprüchen gerecht werden kann." (...) Kurzer Auszug aus dem Fazit: "Die hier von uns verwendete Mainboard/Prozessor-Kombination mit dem Core i5-2300 mag aufgrund der 95W Wärmeverlustleistung nicht besonders sparsam erscheinen. Ich wurde im laufe der Tests jedoch eines Besseren belehrt, denn zum Beispiel bei Wiedergabe diverser Medienformate verbrauchte das System gerade mal 25W bis 35W, was sich sicherlich durchaus sehen lassen kann. Wir können das Board, das auch mit kleineren und günstigeren 2.Generation Core i CPUs ausgerüstet werden kann, für Systeme im Home Bereich durchaus empfehlen, sei es als Home Cinema PC (HTPC) oder auch als Desktop System."

SuperTooth Buddy Hands-Free Car Kit
     Wed, Apr 27 2011 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today for review I’ve got what is probably one of the best Bluetooth speakerphones on the market today called the Buddy, it’s from a company called SuperTooth. I’ve red good things about their products, but never had the chance until now to test any out. The Buddy clips to the visor in your car so it’s easy accessible while driving, and it has a one thousand hour standby time with twenty hours of talk time after charging it for only three hours. "

GIGABYTE Aivia M8600 Wireless Gaming Mouse
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 1:45P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Finding a good gaming mouse isn't hard, but finding one that's wireless is. Even high-end options suffer from a major flaw: poor battery life. GIGABYTE realizes this and made sure no one could say that about its Aivia M8600, which in our tests lasted an entire week in 'gaming' mode. Let's see if that, and its other features, warrant the M8600's $105 price.

Gigabyte E350N-USB3
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 12:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overclocking the E350N was a fairly simple task. I started by bumping the bus speed up in increments of five, then adjusting the voltage until it was stable. I finally settled at 110MHz @ 1.5V (+0.250V), which remained stable during all the testing. In addition, switching the memory multiplier from 5.3 to 6.6 yielded a stable 1333MHz clock on the RAM without any voltage increase. Unfortunately, I could not squeeze any extra MHz out of the GPU without causing instability."

ASUS P8P67 PRO P67 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 12:15P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Reviewers are often criticized for the kind of articles we write. I am not talking about those who write so-called reviews where I can literally find more information about the product on the manufacturer's website, but with some shameless self promotion plug in all forms of humility -- even quality pieces of writings (Like the ones we publish here at APH Networks) are no exception. The reason for this does not lie in the hands of the one who writes the review. The reason for this comes down to the nature of each article. It is easy for us to get the latest and greatest computer components for evaluation, and while those reviews are exceptionally popular all the time, what good does it do for the common individual? Not everyone is interested in spending huge amounts of money for the best computer parts in the market. Of course, if you are reading this review, chances are that you are looking for something that is more... mainstream. Not 'low end' or 'cheap', but mainstream, midrange performance -- the most sought after market bracket by all board manufacturers. So don't complain to us that we go Lamborghini all day and ignore all the Hondas of this world, because we specifically wanted the ASUS P8P67 PRO for our review today. Following the brilliant ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution we have taken a look at last week, how well does the P8P67 PRO hold its own against its bigger brother? We've got you covered.
