A-DATA DashDrive Elite HE720 Review reported at 01:47 PM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
"When it comes down to it ADATA has a very solid product in the DashDrive Elite HE720 Portable Hard Drive. First lets talk about speed, gone are the days of slow USB 2.0 drives. Now that USB 3.0 is becoming more standard almost all new external hard drives have USB 3.0 connectivity. Having USB 3.0 with this drive means you are going to see around a 3x speed increase. That means your file transfers are going to go much faster. Now under the hood is a traditional hard drive not a solid state drive so there is a bottleneck there, but most users will not even notice it. If ADATA would have went with a solid state drive this drive would not be 500GB and would not be at the price point it is currently at."

Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 Review reported at 01:39 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2 Motherboards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
When it comes to FM2, Gigabyte really has done an excellent job with the Gigabyte F2A85X-UP4. This is it if you want a "high-end" APU board. Not only does it take full advantage of all the features offered by the A85X FCH and the FM2 APU platform, but it also brings in full overclocking support, so you can tweak to your heart's content. But who really wants to overclock an APU?

Cooler Master HAF XB Review reported at 01:36 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Hardware Asylum
Article Quote:
Overall construction of the HAF XB is quite good and featured high quality steel construction throughout and double rivets at each of the joints. There are plenty of modding opportunities with this case including custom paint and DIY watercooling. Chassis mods are not suggested given the construction however, if you wanted to convert this into a 24/7 benching station it could be accomplished with a little Demel action and some fiberglass.

Cooler Master HAF XB Review reported at 01:32 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
The Cooler Master HAF XB is a prime example of getting two products for the price of one. It can make for the perfect gaming chassis or it can be opened up to become the ideal test bench station. The purchaser is the one who has to decide what the better solution is for them.

Cooler Master HAF XB Review reported at 01:32 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
I will admit the squatty stature of the build might not be for everyone. It is a lot fatter than your typical case – easily two Corsair 650Ds next to each other, but it stands less than half the height as well. If you can afford the extra floor/desk space, then I highly recommend the HAF XB. Cost, appearance, and quality can't be beat at this price range. This is the ultimate LAN rig. Props to CM and the HAF XB.

Corsair Carbide 200R Review reported at 01:20 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
"The Carbide 200R doesn’t have that out-of-the-way gaming styling nor does it have all the bling that many companies try to all to a cheaper priced case to get it to sale to the masses. The 200R is very simple and down-to-earth. Visually speaking. The subtle looks can be liked by many and can fit the needs of more than just one type of PC user. Need a gaming rig? You can achieve it with the 200R. Need a new system for the office? You can build it with the 200R. Need a system for the wife so she doesn’t occupy time on yours? Get a 200R."

Corsair AX860i Review reported at 01:06 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
To sum up, The AX860i is the ideal choice for you if you have the money and simply want the best available PSU with a capacity below 1kW. It provides amazing performance, is fully modular, features a semi-fanless mode for overall quiet operation, can be controlled and monitored through software, and is, most importantly, backed up by Corsair with an extra-long seven-year warranty; you will not have to worry about another PSU for a very long time.

Ozone Radon Opto Review reported at 01:05 PM
category: Mice     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
After using for some time the Radon Opto mouse from OZONE, we could say that it feels quite comfortable with its top rubber finish and the larger footprint; however, we did not see the same quality materials as the well established brands use nowadays on their mice like the plastic from the bottom or the fact that the DPI selector switch was rattling when moving the mouse quickly from left to right.

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP7 Review reported at 01:04 PM
category: Socket 1155 Motherboards     website: Hardware Asylum
Article Quote:
Overall we really like this motherboard, the colors is nice, the layout is good and performance is excellent but, we are left thinking that Gigabyte didn't really push things far enough to make this the "perfect" motherboard. Things like PCI Express disable switches may seem trivial but the option saves a lot of time when benching and debugging multi GPU configurations. Also, let's not forget that hardware overclocking buttons are a great addition but without a visual indicator it is difficult to tell how many steps you moved.

DeepCool Neptwin Review reported at 12:50 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
"There are several things they need to take into consideration though if they want to keep customers coming back. The installation process is a real headache. When is comes down to it, it leaves too much work to the customer. Installing felt pads on the heatsink? Come on, figure out how to do that in your manufacturing process. Although the retention plate is nice to be able to easily remove, there should be some way to secure it to the heat sink while installing. I found the screws far too short when trying to put the plastic spacers on and attach the mounting brackets. If the were just a few mm longer everything would have been much easier."
