Video Frame Rates and Display Refresh Rates for Beginners Guide
     Sun, Mar 20 2011 | 9:00A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We hope you've been enjoying our series of Beginner's Guides for HTPC and Home Theater. As part of the series, we’ve previously discussed video resolutions and how video information is displayed on a screen for a frame of video in our guide, Video Resolutions for Beginners. What we didn’t delve into much was the rate at which video frames are captured, or, in other words, the video frame rate. This guide will cover the basics of frame rates and how displays deal with the frame rates. We’ll try to cut through the marketing buzzwords like 120Hz, 240Hz, 600Hz sub-field drive, etc. so that you can make a more informed decision when purchasing your next display and how to insure an optimal viewing experience.

     Sat, Mar 19 2011 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Thermaltake V9 BlacX Gaming Case is sleek black inside and out, and comes loaded with features you would expect from a top of the line case. More than that, the Thermaltake V9 BlacX also packs in a Dual Bay HDD Docking Station right on the top of the case that is SATA III capable and easily fits 2.5” and 3.5” drives with no adapters necessary. Thermaltake first made a name for themselves with innovative top of the line cooling products, and the V9 BlacX holds true to that tradition."

ASUS GeForce GTX 550Ti DirectCU TOP 1GB DDR5 DX11 Video Card Review
     Sat, Mar 19 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS GeForce GTX 550Ti DirectCU TOP can be considered a "Top Sniper". The GTX 550Ti DirectCU TOP takes the 550 to the near extreme. The 550Ti is a re-built 450 to meet the needs of the newest games and gamers. Unlike the 450, the 550Ti now has a 192-bit memory interface, and, because of mixed density GDDR5 chips, still retains the 1GB size. ASUS has increased the core clock speed to 975MHz and added their DirectCU cooling solution on top."

Diamond Multimedia All In Wonder HD Premium 5000 Review
     Sat, Mar 19 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Diamond Multimedia All In Wonder HD Premium 5000 can fill that last puzzle piece for your media PC. The All In Wonder 5000 combines a good mainstream video card with a popular TV Tuner all in one package. You get a Radeon HD 5570 GPU with an internal 750 PCI-E TV Tuner. The Diamond Radeon HD 5570 isn't a powerhouse video card, however there is enough "pow" in it for everyday general use and a bit of light gaming."

MSI GTX 550 Ti Cyclone II
     Sat, Mar 19 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti is the latest in the Fermi lineup, and while it may share a similar naming scheme as the GTX 560 Ti, it does have some distinct differences, not the least of which is a considerably lower price tag. One of the interesting things about the launch of the GTX 550 Ti is there will be several models available from Nvidia partners simultaneously, and this one is from MSI. Bringing a custom cooler and a factory overclock, today is quite exciting if you're in the market for a new graphics card that won't break the bank.”

HDPLEX H10.ODD Fanless Chassis Review
     Sat, Mar 19 2011 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The H10.ODD is a microATX fanless HTPC-centric chassis brought to use by HDPLEX Inc. If the name HDPLEX (no relation to OSX Media Center Plex) sounds familiar, it should. We helped spread the word a little over a year ago HD Plex Announces Fanless, Heatpipe-cooled All-Aluminum HTPC Enclosures. I was curious then and jumped at the opportunity to review one of the first H10.ODD made available.

Corsair SP2200 2.1 Speaker System
     Fri, Mar 18 2011 | 5:32P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Movies aren't so involving with the SP2200. Newer movies often have audio that favors bass, and, as mentioned, the bass must be turned down quite a bit on the SP2200 to prevent it from being overwhelming and boomy. Unfortunately, this means that the overall volume must be turned up rather high to have a traditional movie experience. Fortunately, because most movie audio is intentionally very quiet so that any dramatic, loud moments are emphasized, means that quiet listening of movies is possible. Simply note that you might have to increase the volume to hear quiet parts."

Intel 510 SSD review
     Fri, Mar 18 2011 | 5:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel releases their latest SSD which was developed under the codename "Elm Crest" and it's Intel's first 6Gbs SSD, the Intel 510 Series SSD. Obviously the product is aimed at PC enthusiasts, gamers and workstation users. The 2.5" 9.5mm drive is available in two capacities: 120GB and 250GB. Today's product doubles the sequential read speeds, and at up to 315MB/s, more than triples the sequential write speeds of Intel’s current 3Gbps SSDs, to transfer more data in less time. So without further ado, have a peek at the Intel SATA III based 510 250GB SSD.

In Win Buc Computer Case Review
     Fri, Mar 18 2011 | 4:47P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With good cooling performance from three included fans and an innovative front panel design, In Win's BUC chassis is an interesting mid-tower chassis that also includes several innovative features and a blacked-out interior and rear panel. The fit and finish of the BUC is very good, but the relatively thin metal used and the breakout design of the bay covers require some extra care when doing an install."
