Gigabyte Osmium Keyboard: Great Design
     Sat, Nov 17 2012 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After 25 years of typing on keyboards, I've field-tested everything from IBM's legendary Mode M to the sort of $4.99 specials that were, as far as I could tell, constructed from styrofoam, packing peanuts, and pocket lint. About a year ago, I made the jump to a pair of mechanical keyboards and haven't looked back. The mechanical board on the table today is Gigabyte's Aivia Osmium, and it's an impressive beauty. The Osmium includes a USB 2 port, USB 3 port, headphone/microphone jacks, five macro keys, five profile settings, a double-set of stands to adjust the keyboard's height, and independent wheels for controlling the backlight and audio…

Mozilla Firefox 16 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Nov 16 2012 | 11:23A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After a somewhat fitful initial release, Firefox 16 (actually 16.0.1) is now the prevailing version of Mozilla`s independent, open-source browser. You might say that the update only adds new features for developers, but those in turn can mean new Web capabilities for ordinary browser users."

We are back with another hard drive enclosure from ICY DOCK! This enclosure is a dual bay enclosure so you will not only be able to install 2 hard drives, but also have those hard drives in a RAID configuration. The external enclosure supports 3 different connections, USB 2.0, eSATA and Firewire so no matter what system you are using this enclosure will be compatible.

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Nov 16 2012 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the past 5 years or so we've literally witnessed a rain of gaming peripherals designed and manufactured by a large number of companies around the world, some well-known ones and some well not so much. Regardless however no matter how many gaming peripherals we get to test most of them seem quite similar in both design and features while only a handful really steal the show each year (and that's not even certain) either because of their innovative nature or due to their second to none performance. Now as many of you know purely gaming oriented keyboards are perhaps what we see least when it comes to gaming related peripherals (mice and headsets are obviously more in number) and although many manufacturers keep releasing extremely durable mechanical keyboards their lack of features robs them from that classification. Of course currently in the market there are quite a few "pure" gaming oriented keyboards by manufacturers such as Razer and Logitech but as with all things there's always something above everything else and the latest S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 gaming keyboard by Mad Catz aims for the throne.

CM Storm Speed-RXL & Skorpion Mouse Bungee
     Fri, Nov 16 2012 | 9:00A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CM Storm Speed-RXL mouse pad with the Duracloth surface was a pleasure to use. Its large surface area is great for gaming and cleans up easily. That being said, even with the few weeks that I had the pad, I could see signs that the edges were stating to fray. As the pad is made from rubber and cloth it could get damaged if you don’t take good care of it. . .

Logitech TV Cam HD review: couch Skyping
     Thu, Nov 15 2012 | 12:03P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Skype is an extremely useful and indeed cost saving application, but a disadvantage of this particular method of communication is its requirement to sit at a computer, which does get old after a while. Logitech recently introduced its TV Cam HD, which allows you to video call while just sitting on your couch. While there are television sets with built-in webcam and Skype app, the TV Cam HD has been designed to work with any set with an HDMI port.

D-Link DIR-865L review: another flagship router?
     Thu, Nov 15 2012 | 12:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
D-Link really has gotten a feel for it this year. We've seen one new product after the other. Earlier we got the flagship model from their standard line of routers called the DIR-857, and now it's apparently time for the 802.11ac router, the DIR-865L. Also known as the Wireless AC 1750 Dual Band Cloud Router, this can be seen as the second D-Link flagship model of this year.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
