MSI Z77A-G45 Review reported at 01:07 PM
category: Socket 1155 Motherboards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
"There was really nothing glaring wrong with the board, just some in consistencies and odd design choices. In the gaming benchmarks specifically, performance seemed to be either under or over that of the other board. Design-wise, the positioning of the CMOS battery and reset jumper are questionable, especially when using video cards with larger coolers in the board. You would have to remove the video card to get to either item."

MadCatz F.R.E.Q.7 Review reported at 10:23 AM
category: headsets     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
I’ve already upgraded my headset to a F.R.E.Q.7, and that makes this a true editors choice product, the question for me now is, will it ever be topped, maybe Mad Catz will make a F.R.E.Q.9 and change the rule book once again, but only time will tell.

Thermaltake eSPORTS Level 10 M Review reported at 10:13 AM
category: Mice     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
If it had been 65 g lighter, had side plates with better contours, and better placed buttons, it could have easily bested the CM Storm Sentinel Advance II in every way. As it is right now, the Level 10 M just seems overpriced despite the many novel features it has over the, in comparison, fairly standardized CM Storm Sentinel Advance II.

Samsung PM840 Review reported at 10:03 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
So I say again the only real downside to this drive is the slow write speeds. Consider this, most normal SATA drives operate with a sustained write speed of 80-90MB/s. So the fact that this drive can write at a maximum of 130MB/s is not really saying much. You will get improved write speeds as you move up in capacity, but of course that will cost you more money. Right now the 120GB version of the 840 Series is $109.99 at my favorite online retailer, which makes it one of the most inexpensive 120GB solid state drives available. If write speeds are not that important to you than this is a pretty solid drive.

Razer Ouroboros Review reported at 09:19 AM
category: Mice     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
Personally, I don't feel the Ouroboros is one of those mice that you can recommend. Not in the sense of "its not worth it," rather in the sense of "it's not for everyone." Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed using the Ouroboros; it just hasn't become my daily driver yet. Perhaps the Lamborghini influence extends a little deeper here as well: much like a Lamborghini comes with its own set of new problems (Poor roads? High curbs? Expensive maintenance? High gas consumption? Are any of these really negatives in context?) the Ouroboros is best employed by someone that is willing to take the bad with the good. I'm not sure if that makes it a bad mouse. I guess what I am trying to say here is this: you already know if you want one. For those of you that do, it won't be a perfect or a cost-effective experience - but it'll probably be worth it.
