Cooler Master Choiix Power Fort USB Battery Pack Review
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The bundle we received was for item C-2010-K1A0 which is the Black, Advanced retail version. The Power Fort is available as white normal/advanced, or black normal/advanced. The difference between the normal and advanced versions is the car and wall power adapters. The normal versions come with just the two USB cables and suede pouch, whereas the advanced have the car adapter and US/EU/AU/UK wall adapters..."

Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus review
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We test and review the all new Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus mid tower chassis. Armed with rugged looks and a lot of features this might be a very interesting chassis to purchase. The rugged looking militaristic inspired HAF series now makes a move from the big full tower chassis towards a more conventional sized mid-tower series, tagged with an attractive price of course. Sensible or conventional sized doesn't mean a small chassis lacking space though, to the contrary... the HAF 912 series makes sure that big components like lengthy high-end graphics cards easily fit into your PC, making it an attractive option for many of you.

Jetway MiniTOP review
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Jetway has jumped on the Mini HTPC market with their new and quite funky looking Mini-TOP. In its bare essence this pretty much a tiny PC that is armed with an Atom D525 Processor clocked at 1.80GHz and then combined with a NVIDIA's ION2 GPU / chipset implementation to make the most out of a typically very limited environment. For a cute little wireless HTPC this is all you need really ... have a peek, you can check out the full article right here.

NVIDIA's Best Buy GeForce GTX 460 1GB Video Card Overview
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We got word late yesterday by a friend at NVIDIA that Best Buy had slipped up and released NVIDIA branded graphics cards on Sunday night. This was a week before they were supposed to hit store shelves as NVIDIA hasn't even released the PR stating that the company has joined forces with Best Buy and that Best Buy is now directly selling NVIDIA Branded video cards directly to consumers. This is the first time that we have seen NVIDIA branded video cards being sold direct and we went to a few Best Buy stores in St. Louis today and sure enough, we spotted the cards sitting on store shelves. We couldn't leave the store empty handed, so we bought the card for $299.99 and headed back to see what it was all about..."

WCG 2010 Grand Final: Gamers, Hardware, and Booth Babes
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"South Korea took home first overall place with 3 Gold medals, 2 Silver, and 3 bronze. Brazil, the UK, and Germany tied for second with 1 Gold and 1 Silver respectfully. The United States, Australia, Sweden and the Ukraine tied for third with 1 Gold medal each. Even though the US team only won one gold medal, they did a decent job of representing (even though I was really pulling for Evil Geniuses to finish on the podium). It was also cool to see how they filmed the reality series Ultimate Gamer (has anyone ever wondered why Ultimate Gamer is on the SciFi channel and not G4? Things that make you go "hmmm")..."

Phantom Black E-ATX Full Tower Case Review
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The NZXT Phantom is hands down one of the finest computer cases I have ever had the pleasure of reviewing. With its sleek aerodynamic look and slew of features, I have a feeling it will be make people take notice for years to come. With a price tag of $139.99 and a two year warranty, it is clearly priced to compete with and dominate the other full tower cases in its class such as the Corsair Obsidian (shown below) which has all of the same features except for being made of aluminum, but is priced $120 higher..."

Kingmax Hercules PC3-17600 (2200MHz) 4GB Kit
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A while back we saw Kingmax launch the new Hercules series of memory. It seemed to be a step forward in bringing the Kingmax name into the mouths of overclockers again. While the kit didn’t perform bad at all, the memory market is extremely competitive and it seemed like the kit never really got any legs. Today Kingmax intend to throw another kit at us carrying the same Hercules name. The kit carries with it also the same speed; 2200MHz DDR, which while not the highest we’ve seen, is sitting at the top of the pile and ready to take a whizz through our test regime today."

     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"SilverStone has always been well known for their quality power supplies, and rightfully so. When the company was founded in 2003, their first products available were power supplies and shortly thereafter, cases. Since then the company has flourished building upon their strong company policies of outstanding design, perfect quality and customer satisfaction. And they now have a wide range of products to fulfill your computing needs. Today we get to take a look at one of their latest power supplies.

ZOWIE GEAR EC1 Gaming Mouse with P-RF and G-TF Mousepads
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When it comes to gaming mice, nearly everyone you meet is going to have their own preferences and opinions on which ones are best, and most are fiercely loyal to a certain brand once they get comfortable. It can be difficult to get a long time Logitech or Razer owner to give a different mouse a whirl. ZOWIE GEAR may not be a company that many gamers are familiar with, having only been around since 2008. While the company may be relatively new to the game, the designers at ZOWIE GEAR work with professional gamers to develop new products that even the fiercest competitor would be proud to use in battle. The EC1 gaming mouse that we are looking at today was developed with the help of pro gamer Emil "HeatoN" Christensen, and the G-TF mousepad was designed by Abdisamad “SpawN” Mohamed. ZOWIE GEAR was nice enough to provide both of these items plus the P-RF mousepad as well, so let’s take a look at what they have to offer."

AVADirect Custom Small Business Server System
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The AVADirect Custom Small Business Server System that we are looking at today was at one time planned to be a small, low cost, high performance NAS server that would compete with the likes of Thecus and QNAP on price, but deliver superior performance. Somewhere along the line the custom NAS server transformed into a Small Business Server; customization had dramatically changed the face of our NAS and with it the intended customer, usage model and more importantly, the price. AVADirect offers several general use servers, enterprise storage systems and even SOHO storage systems. Each can be configured to your needs with drive, memory and software configurations based on your input. If you purchase the NAS or server with the drives from AVADirect they will even install your drives, configure your server with the configuration information you provide and deliver a system that just needs to plug into your network and be provided power. Today we are looking at one of AVADirect’s custom small business servers that uses a Windows operating system and features Seagate’s newest SAS 6G 2TB Constellation ES enterprise class hard drives."

ASUS Xonar DG PCI Sound Card
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Since the very first of the Xonar boards from ASUS, we have been impressed with not only the choice of components used, but also with the overall design of all of the various iterations. This not so elegantly leads us into the very latest of these, known only as the ‘DG’ which is arguably the tamest Xonar to date. Rather than being an out-and-out brute of a thing like many others in the Xonar lineage, the DG goes for a far more stealthy approach to handling things. Using the older PCI port rather than one of the newer options is one of the first things that caught our eye; another is the built in headphone amp which complements the support for surround sound in either analog or digital, as well as comprehensive front panel access via an internal link to the supplied bracket."

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 SLI versus ATI Radeon HD 5770 CrossFire

Posted by: STAFF
Did you know that NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 and ATI Radeon HD 5770 video cards are nearly identical in price? They are also rather inexpensive and you can get a nice NVIDIA SLI or ATI CrossFire setup with these cards for $260-$280 before rebates. The question we look at today is which setup performs better and which one scales better?

Antec LanBoy Air Modular Full Tower Case Review
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Antec has been known for great cases over the years, and the LanBoy Air is another in a long line. The case is well built, well thought out, and unlike most cases you can change it with a little time and a Phillips screw driver. The overall design of the LanBoy Air is very well thought out. In moving parts around I never had a situation arise that the holes didn't line up or something didn't fit. The Antec LanBoy Air is available for $219.95; for that price you get case that is very customizable and has room for the biggest hardware available at this time. If you want to customize a case but don't have a lot of tools or the skill, then give the LanBoy Air a good look because you just need a little time and a screw driver..."
