OtterBox Defender Series Case for HTC 8X Windows Phone Review @ ModSynergy.com
"Smartphone's are the obsession of this generation. It's a technological marvel among many things in this world that keeps us all connected. It's become so prevalent in our daily lives that some can argue we can't live without it. The Smartphone is a marvelous invention and has indeed changed the course of history.
But with these new Smartphone's being thinner and having their screens exposed, I had to look into a Smartphone case that could take the abuse that the phone was surely going to have. It had to protect this phone with certainty. Today I share with you about the OtterBox HTC 8X Windows Phone Defender Series Case and share my thoughts on if it's worthy of your hard earned money."
Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon Dual Lens Action Camera @ NikKTech
"Action cameras are just about the only gadget available to Xtreme sports enthusiasts that allow them to keep a record of their achievements with ease thanks to their tiny sizes and quite impressive capabilities (always for their size). It's no wonder many people refer to these portable devices as the future of video recording/streaming and although i don't think we will be around (hope I’m wrong) to witness the "extinction" of full sized camcorders i think that no one can deny that they have evolved quite a bit over the years both in features and specifications. A few weeks ago we received the very first pair of glasses packing a Full HD action camera by Rollei and although in the end we found them lacking in some areas we were quite impressed with the innovative path manufacturers are taking as of late. Well it seems that Oregon Scientific has also something to offer since they are the first manufacturer to release a dual lens action camera called the ATC Chameleon."
Cougar MX300 Midtower Gaming Case Review @ Technology X
"Do-it-yourself PC chassis manufacturers continue to bring new products to market at a steady pace. While many such manufacturers gear the bulk of their offerings to the mid-level and enthusiast market, some companies have recognized the need for more budget-builder-friendly versions, especially for gamers."
RAZER Edge Pro Gaming Tablet Video Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
"More than two years ago we got our first glimpse of Project Fiona at CES 2012. Today Kaeyi Dream talks us through the Razer Edge Pro gaming tablet."
Cooler Master HAF Stacker @ techPowerUp
"Cooler Master is joining the fray of extra large cases, but is making things modular in the process. With that in mind, the HAF Stacker was born. Will it show others how it is done, although late to the game? We take the HAF Stacker and shuffle its parts around a few times to see what it has to offer over offerings by other brands."
Rosewill R-Studio Ampbox Bluetooth Speaker Review @ Legit Reviews
“Rosewill is mainly known as the computer manufacturing division of Newegg, however they do many non-computer related products. As mobile devices become more prevalent, mobile products are becoming more important. Rosewill took a look at what they had to offer and realized they did not have a portable Bluetooth speaker. They have recently changed that with the R-Studio Ampbox."
Dark Rock Pro 3 by beQuiet! Review @ TechwareLabs.com
"Not new to the market, beQueit! has been manufacturing case fans, CPU coolers, power supplies, and additional accessories since 2006 and have become extremely popular in Germany and that popularity is trending in the same manner here in the states. The folks at beQuiet! put emphasis on performance "and" silence, which is not necessarily two things that go hand and hand in the aftermarket air cooler industry. Today we will be looking at their latest offering in their CPU cooler line, the Dark Rock Pro 3."
Inateck FEU3NS-1 USB 3.0 External Storage Enclosure Review @ Tweaktown
"We look at the Inateck FEU3NS, an affordable option for those needing 2.5-inch external storage, powered by USB 3.0. Follow on as Tyler tells us about it."
MSI GE60 2PE Apache Pro 15.6in gaming notebook @ Kitguru
"Laptops are rarely given much credit when it comes to gaming ability, but the GE60 2PE Apache Pro from MSI has the potential to turn that idea on its head. Packing the ‘hot-off-the-shelf’ Nvidia GTX 860M, an Intel i7 4700 HQ CPU with 12GB of DDR3 and a 128GB SSD – the specs, on paper, are impressive. Read on to see how well this new MSI laptop does when we put it through some intensive testing."
Plextor M6S SSD Review (256GB) - Strength in a New Marvell SSD Controller Offering @ The SSD Review
"It has been a long time in the making but the new Plextor M6S family is finally rolling out. Based on Marvell SSD controllers and Toshiba NAND flash memory, we got our first glimpse at the M6e M.2 PCIe X2 SSD some months ago in our IO-Switch Raijin Review, followed by our official analysis of the 512GB capacity M6e (and some great RAID testing) a short time ago. To be completely honest, we have been just a bit spoiled by all manufacturers with respect to our M.2 SSD coverage. Things are a bit different today, however, as we introduce the Plextor M6S SSD, the newest of the Plextor M6 family and with a brand new Marvell controller."
CyberLink PowerDVD 14 Review @MissingRemote
"Last year CyberLink added the option to subscribe to PowerDVD alongside their cloud service, and that continues to be available this year with PowerDVD 14. The $44.99 per year (or $14.99 per quarter) alongside the standard purchase options of Ultra ($99.95), Pro ($79.95) and Standard ($49.95). If you opt for the subscription or Ultra 10GB of CyberLink Cloud storage is included in the price alongside the Android/iOS/Windows 8 “Metro” Power Media Player. There are quite a few new features this year, including HEVC (H.265), WASAPI audio support, and automatic cloud-based file synchronization between clients. I’ve had the chance to play with a beta release of the product – click through for some impressions an the full PR."
ASUS Xonar U7 USB Sound Card and Amp Review @ Legit Reviews
"We got an early look at an upcoming affordable USB powered sound card from ASUS called the Xonar U7. Its compact form makes it easy to setup or use with laptops which normally can’t have their audio solutions upgraded. At the same time, we’re expecting it to pack a big sound based on our very positive assessment of other ASUS Xonar cards. Clearly ASUS has remained confident in maintaining their audio products despite it being one of their smaller ventures within their varied portfolio..."
Sapphire R9 280X VaporX Graphics Card Review @ Bjorn3D
"Sapphire as we all know is AMDs premier partner so we always see cool stuff coming from them, but honestly we had already seen a VaporX 280X so we have all simply been waiting for what would come next such as the much rumored 295X or another 290X iteration. To my surprise I got hands on with a newer VaporX 280X model card which is actually a whole new configuration and looks very much like the Toxic model we looked at some time ago now sporting the Tri-X cooler. However this card carries blue hints instead of the orange from the Toxic model which actually looks really good in my opinion."
iOCEAN X7S 8-core Smartphone Review @ Madshrimps
"X7S is one of the latest smartphones from iOCEAN, featuring the latest MediaTek MT6592 1.7GHz 8-core SoC, which is paired with 2GB of RAM. The 4-core GPU part is clocked at 700MHz (Mali-450 MP4) for offering good performances in 3D applications and for videos we have H.265 video decoding support along with the ClearMotion intelligent video frequency-doubling technology. The 13MP camera in the back provides us with good quality photos while the 2000mAH battery should last us from one day to a day and a half depending on the usage type."
AMD AM1 Athlon 5350 Reviewed: Low Power, Low Price APU For the Masses @ PCPerspective
"AM1 is not the end-all, be-all of computing. It is a tightly focused product that is aimed at a certain market. It will not appeal to all consumers. It will appeal to some. It has shown itself to be a nicely performing part that is extremely energy efficient. AMD won’t blow any hair back with this release, but they do deliver on a product that hits all the major checkboxes for modern home computing. Now we just have to see if the uptake in the consumer market was worth AMD’s time. I think it might just be."
AVEXIR Blitz 1.1 DDR3 RAM Memory Review @ BenchmarkReviews
"I love it when a company innovates and brings a product to market that people really want. AVEXIR have done just that with their Blitz 1.1 series DDR3 PC memory range – with designs based on popular gaming motherboard brands. For this review AVEXIR have kindly sent Benchmark Reviews a wide range of samples for our testing pleasure. For performance testing, two of the seven memory modules were paired together to form the equivalent of an 8GB dual channel 1600MHz CL9 memory kit (model# AVD3U16000904G-2BZ1). This review will showcase the Blitz 1.1 series PC memory range available from AVEXIR as well as providing vital performance information."
Corsair Carbide SPEC 01 Review @ Vortez
"SPEC 01 is aimed at those on a very strict budget and yet it promises to deliver on the visual appearance, feature-set and quality. Can this new mid-tower steal the limelight for entry-level system builders? Join us as we evaluate this new computer chassis."
Biostar A88W Hi-Fi 3D ATX Motherboard @ PureOverclock
"In the past several months, the push for Home Theater PC’s (HTPC’s for short) has started to grow wildly. The allure of a fully modular home theater machine that does more than just play your movies or music is simply too strong for many to resist, and rightfully so. While there are many choices out there of associated hardware, with more on the way, Biostar has one now that appeals directly to the audiophile: the A88W Hi-Fi 3D. Designed with both a high-end isolated audio solution and potential for tuning an unlocked APU, this motherboard looks to be a very sensible choice for those who want a little bit from every buffet of tech; the question is, “Does it deliver finely tuned notes for enthusiasts of all kinds, or does it fall flat?” We’re here to find out just that.”
