Biostar Hi-Fi A85W Review reported at 12:59 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2 Motherboards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"Biostar really needs to update the BIOS of this product before I can give it a decent score. What's here now could prove to be a fantastic product, although with a VRM that draws a bit more power than others. The board is, and I hate to say this, broken until a fix is applied. Fortunately, it can be fixed easily, but I have to, until that time comes, recommend using other options unless you really like the looks this board has to offer."

Lexar JumpDrive Triton Review reported at 12:51 PM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
The Lexar Triton Jump Drive is an impressive little flash drive capable of good speeds across USB 3.0 ports as well as USB 2.0 ports. These speeds are a plus if you are one that likes to get the data and move on to the next location quickly. Over the time we had the drive I moved several files include 9k worth of photos of my twins as well as movie files using this drive and it was far easier and less time consuming compared to the numerous slower USB 2.0 drives I have laying around.

category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
When it comes down to it if you are looking at a GTX 660 ASUS’s GTX 660 DirectCU II OC Edition is a great choice not only because it is overclocked but because of the cooling power and quality components used.

Razer Taipan Review reported at 12:38 PM
category: Mice     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
First we would like to point again that the mouse design with the plastic on top (and not rubber coating) is our preferred choice because signs of use may appear after a much longer period of time; also, the quality of the materials is top notch. The ambidextrous shape of the mouse is quite comfortable and the programmable buttons located on the sides are accessible enough (the left ones will be used with the thumb and the right ones with the ring finger). However, when holding the mouse tightly, we may have some small confort issues after a long time period because the ring finger will touch the right lateral buttons, which are not rubber coated.

AMD A10-5800K Review reported at 12:30 PM
category: Socket FM2     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
For it's price, the performance is right and can be competitive with Intel's i3-3225. Both are ideal solutions for an inexpensive media HTPC to light gaming rig. But in all honesty, the HD7660D turns it all in favour off the AMD A10 5800K, especially when utilising high RAM speeds, the performance is spot on with low end nVidia discrete graphics cards.

Asus PB278Q Review reported at 12:18 PM
category: 20/22/24 INCH     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
The Dell U2713HM earned a Gold Award due to the very low energy-consumption. The ASUS monitor isn't as efficient and lacks a USB 3.0 hub, and it's response times are a little slower. That's why the ASUS PB278Q is stick with a Silver Award, with a gold lining. It's an outstanding monitor that can be recommended without any reservations.

SanDisk ReadyCache Review reported at 12:17 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: TBreak
Article Quote:
"So there you have it, if you want the speeds, or close to those of an SSD, the SanDisk ReadyCache 32GB SSD is a very elegant solution for your needs, more so because of the cheap setup cost and the simplicity with which things get rolling. Remember, that you won’t find an instant speed boost, time must be given for the ExpressCache software to learn your usage patterns, but in time you’ll be glad you have this hybrid system. Of course, if you’re building a new system and have some extra cash to spare, then you can always go with a complete SSD based system, like SanDisk’s Extreme series."

BitFenix Recon & Hydra Pro Review reported at 12:13 PM
category: Monitor Coolers     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
Both of these fan controllers do their job. They both look great, are built with clear attention to detail, and will easily stand up to daily use for a very long time. If you have noisy fans or would like the ability to use noisy fans without having to deal with their obnoxious droning whenever your computer is on you won't be disappointed in either of these BitFenix offerings. The software for the Recon is a bit rough around the edges but serves its purpose, and the Hydra Pro is simple and effective. For the asking price of $39.99 for the Recon and $34.99 for the Hydra Pro, I really cannot find any serious faults in either product. Personally I love the automatic control on the Recon, and it will be staying in my own rig permanently!

Noctua NH-L12 Review reported at 12:11 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Awarding the Noctua NH-L12 is a tough one. It could have our innovation award for being such a unique product in the HTPC/SFF market. It could snatch the Bang For Buck award for being one of the best performing and best value HTPC cooling solutions on the market we have ever seen. Yet the Noctua NH-L12 ticks so many boxes that we feel it is more than deserving of our highest award, the Editor’s Choice award.
