Netgear Centria WNDR4700 Review reported at 11:47 AM
category: Internet Routers     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
"Had Netgear designed this router without the hard disk option but with the same outstanding performance, it would have earned itself the Gold Award. That's how fast this router is. But the hard disk feature brings with it a loud fan that's always on. The transfer rates of the hard disk are good, but the USB 3.0 ports are almost as fast. The main reason we are giving it the Silver instead of Gold Award is that the hard drive feature only provides limited added value in our opinion."

Antec AMP SP1 Review reported at 11:38 AM
category: Digital Speakers     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
Quality portable wireless Bluetooth speakers cost quite a bit especially if they also pack a speakerphone feature (you get what you pay for most of the time) and the SP1 by Antec Mobile Products (a.m.p) although by far not the most expensive one it doesn't really come cheap since currently you can find it at USD85.88 inside the USA (Walmart) and at around 80Euros inside the EU. That being said you can certainly find a large number of cheaper portable Bluetooth compatible speakers in the market but in the end it always comes down to personal preference and so if you want a great looking device with surprisingly good audio levels, rich bass and good mid/highs without spending over USD100/100Euros then the SP1 was ment for you. Personally i think that Antec has launched a great portable Bluetooth speaker and although not 100% perfect during our tests it still gets our Golden Award.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 / Phenom II X4 960T / Phenom II X6 1075T & Intel Pentium G2120 / Core i3-3220 / Core i5-3330 Review reported at 11:37 AM
category: Intel Socket 1155 CPUs     website: iXBT Hardware
Article Quote:
AMD Phenom II X4 955 performs similarly to Intel Pentium G2120 but consumes more power. As a result, paying $100 for it would be too much. However, after another price cut, AMD Phenom II X4 955 finds itself in the below $100 segment, turning into a really good choice, able to compete with even Core i3 in thread-hungry tasks. AMD Phenom II X4 955 and 965 are also an excellent "hundred-buck" upgrade for an AMD fan with an old Athlon II rig.

Inno3D GeForce GTX 670 iChill & GTX 660 Ti Review reported at 11:29 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: iXBT Hardware
Article Quote:
Inno3D GeForce GTX 670 iChill is an excellent graphics adapter, working at very low temperatures and with very little noise. The only disadvantage is its big size: 3 slots thick and longer than 30 cm. Inno3D GeForce GTX 660 Ti is also a good choice, with a smaller, dual-slot cooling system that does its job very nicely. Compared to the iChill, the only drawback is more noise.

Corsair Hydro H90 & H110 (w/ i7-3930K) Review reported at 11:20 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: KitGuru
Article Quote:
Neither the H90 or H110 offer great compatibility as there are only a few cases out there which have enough room to accommodate them. The radiator on the Corsair H110 features 20 mm fan spacings which aren’t compatible with a lot of cases which have dual 140 mm fan vents in the roof. This needs to be checked before purchase.

Kingston SSDNow V300 Review reported at 11:09 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
As an upgrade path Kingston has put together a rather complete package that includes an installation DVD and disk cloning software, along with all the parts to make the drive fit your system. Sporting a 1,000,000 hour MTBF, the three-year warranty is a way to guarantee any issues will be covered for at least the first 26280 of them. As a drive upgrade the price point makes the V300 series attractive for a number of reason, with low cost chief among them with performance that fits that price point.
