Vantec NexStar Hard Drive Dock Review
     Tue, Apr 29 2008 | 9:49P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Vantec NexStar Hard Drive Dock lived up to its promise. It provides a convenient method of connecting any SATA drive to your system so that you can easily access the data on it. Performance was up to par, but the real benefit is from the design. During disaster recovery, you need something that's straightforward and easy to use and won't add more trouble to your life. The NexStar Hard Drive Dock succeeds in this aspect.”

Square Enix's Yoshinori Kitase, Director of Final Fantasy VII
     Tue, Apr 29 2008 | 9:49P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"BT: We’re ten years on now and there’s been multiple Final Fantasy games since VII and yet between Dirge of Cerebus, Advent Children and Crisis Core, you’ve always returned to Final Fantasy VII. What is it about VII that you think makes it so popular and special? YK: Well, Final Fantasy VII came out a time in a time of transition when the PlayStation 1 allowed for a whole new realm of games with improved audio and graphics. Also, at the time I was a much younger man. Ten years younger in fact – though don’t count me out just yet! It was a time when I had all this enthusiasm and as a young creator I wanted to try and challenge the idea of what an RPG could be. Combine with that the hardware and these new realms of possibility for creators. That combination seems to have worked because although it was hard to say how successful we were at the time, ten years later the game is still being talked about and I think we really did set a new standard.

24" LCD Monitors Roundup. Part II
     Tue, Apr 29 2008 | 7:02P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although TN matrices are an attribute of budget monitor models, they have not just penetrated the relatively expensive 24-inch monitor segment, but they tend to be a leader there already, at least judging y the number of new models announced lately. But is it necessarily a bad thing? Not very advanced characteristics of TN matrices are well compensated by their low price. Today we are going to talk about 6 monitors on such matrix from Acer, Dell, NEC and Samsung.

Inno3D GeForce 9800 GTX Overclocked
     Thu, Apr 24 2008 | 4:33P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the performance of the Inno3D GeForce 9800 GTX Overclocked and the GeForce 9800 GTX in general is impressive, particularly for a $300 US graphics card, it is not exactly a huge leap forward when compared to the GeForce 8800 series. Although GeForce 8800 GT owners would see reasonable performance gains if they were to upgrade to the 9800 GTX, overclocking the 8800 GT would deliver a similar affect.

There are three different versions of the Pico drive, they are available in capacities from 1GB to 8GB and they all have their very small form factor in common.

Hands On With DTS HD Master Audio
     Thu, Apr 17 2008 | 4:10P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Yesterday, Sony Computer Entertainment finally gave home theatre fanatics what they had been clamouring for since late 2006, when the PlayStation 3 console launched. With the delivery of the latest console firmware, version 2.30, owners whom have an amplifier capable of outputting PCM sound will benefit from improved sound with Blu-ray movies encoded in DTS HD Master Audio. The days of lossy audio in home theatre are over; now the onus is on home theatre fans to embrace these new technologies, and if they truly love the art form, there is absolutely no reason why they shouldn’t."

MSI P35 Platinum Combo Tested at HARDOCP
     Thu, Apr 17 2008 | 4:04P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I would not suggest this board to the usual DIY enthusiast. Who I would suggest it to would be system builders looking to cut down on inventory. Being able to build DDR2 and DDR3 boxes on the same platform could make configuring things simpler. This is not a bad motherboard; it is just not a great enthusiast motherboard for those wanting to build their own box."

ASUS EN9600GT Top Video Card
     Wed, Apr 16 2008 | 6:15P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we are checking out another overclocked 9600 GT. This card is the ASUS EN9600GT Top. ASUS promises a 10% overclock right out of the box and provides applications to let you overclock even more. The only real sore point for me with the ASUS EN9600GT Top is that the custom heatsink makes the card very thick. You can still run the ASUS EN9600GT Top in SLI mode, but you are likely going to give up the slot right below where you put the ASUS EN9600GT Top."

Antec Sonata 550 Plus
     Tue, Mar 18 2008 | 3:15P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Antec is back again with their Sonata casing, this time coupled with their fabulous NeoPower 550watts power supply. They packed it altogether in one box and called it the Sonata Plus 550. Another Sonata case, that at first sight looks a bit dull but if you look closer you'll be amazed by what this case has to offer."

Intel Core 2 Quad system
     Wed, Mar 05 2008 | 5:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Quad CrossFireX is appealing from a technical hardware enthusiast standpoint. However, it doesn't exactly produce the gameplay experience advantages needed to live up to the price tag required. The one game that really needs it, doesn't utilize it very efficiently yet, and the other games that do already have a great gaming experience on just one Radeon HD 3870 X2."
