OCZ Vertex 3.20 Review reported at 10:39 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
The Vertex 3.20 with 240 Gigabyte offers decent performance at a fair price point. For 182 Euro (est. CHF 229.-) you get a reasonably fast drive, that offers higher reliability when compared to the TLC offers that are available for almost the same price.

Fractal Design Define XL R2 Review reported at 10:37 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
We can recommend the Define R2 XL to everybody who's looking for a big tower case that features pre-installed acoustic insulation material as well as silent fans and a fan controller. With this case it's really easy to build a silent rig. Obviously, this big tower offers a lot of space for your precious hardware.

Razer Kraken Pro Review reported at 10:36 AM
category: headsets     website: Modders-Inc
Article Quote:
With 40mm neodymium magnet drivers this headset can unleash crystal clear quality. Amazing comfort is provided by the optimized weight recommended from professional gamers only weighing in at 0.65 lbs, for extended periods of mouse clicking action. The head thrashing bass and plush cushiony circumaural closed ear cup headset allows extravagant sound isolation, so no pesky interruptions can bother you (I like this feature very much). Hate having the mic in the way of the computer screen? Not a problem, the adjustable and extendable mic can fit your needs with natural effortlessness. If you don’t like the green design you can have it in a stylish black (because we need the variety).

be quiet Shadow Rock TopFlow Review reported at 10:32 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
At this point I may as well admit that it’s probably time to let go of my bias against top down coolers. Well, at least in the case of the SR1. This cooler breaks many of the rules of coolers in it’s class, and performs even as well as some of the better tower coolers. I feel one of the biggest contributing factors to this is the way the heatsink does not blow hot air directly onto the CPU. Instead of causing more work for itself, it works to move the air away, while at the same time maintains a lower profile. The mounting system is a breeze to work with, I would put it in the novice difficulty category. And at around $50 USD I would say the cost is spot on to the SR1’s performance and quality. It may even be slightly low, but don’t tell bequiet!.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX Titan Review reported at 10:31 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
AMD do however have a great game bundle with the 7990 which tips the value scale a decent amount but if money is no object then we would always opt for a fast single GPU product over a dual GPU model and ZOTAC/NVIDIA have done well to create the fastest single GPU card we have tested to date.

Inno3D iChill GTX 650 Ti Boost HerculeZ 2000 Review reported at 10:29 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost adds a strong sub-$200 option to the company's lineup. Thanks to the added GPU Boost clock algorithm and a beefed up 192-bit memory interface, we see massive performance gains compared to the GTX 650 Ti without Boost. Inno3D's iChill GTX 650 Ti Boost comes with an 80 MHz GPU overclock out of the box, which is amongst the largest on the market. Memory is overclocked too, which is usually not the case with other GTX 650 Ti Boost cards. In real-life performance, this overclock translates into just a 3% improvement, which is lower than what we've seen on other factory-overclocked cards. EVGA's card, for example, boosts up to 1250 MHz, while this card only goes up to 1150 MHz. Inno3D apparently used more conservative Boost settings in their BIOS. Compared to other cards, we found a large 28% improvement over the original GTX 650 Ti, which definitely makes the difference between "slow" and "very playable" at 1080p. Compared to AMD's lineup, we see performance that is 10% higher than the HD 7850 and 29% higher than the just-released HD 7790."

Shogun Bros Ballista MK-1 Review reported at 10:22 AM
category: Mice     website: KitGuru
Article Quote:
"If you are a gamer on a £50 budget, the Ballista MK1 makes a lot of sense and is actually one of the best mice you could buy today. It just missed out on our gold award because I feel some gamers may find it a little light. I hope the Ballista MK2 will have a weighting system – if they managed to release that in the future at £59.99 inc vat (£10 extra), it would definitely make sense for us."

takeMS LumX Review reported at 10:14 AM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
"The new LumX USB Flash Drive from takeMS has proven as not being the slowest of the bunch, being able to achieve average copy speeds and quite good reads for a mainstream USB 2.0 Flash Drive. The LED lighting combined with the transparent Plexiglas body creates a nice effect which will stand out near regular drive chassis made from aluminum. Besides that, we have multiple colors that we can choose from like Red, Green, Blue or Violet."

Thermaltake Tte eSports Saphira Review reported at 10:02 AM
category: Mice     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
I’m a firm believer that this is by far the best mouse you can buy for under £40, with performance and features that sit between the mice I’ve just mentioned and more mid range offerings such as the R.A.T.5, Sensei, M90 mice, but with a price tag below most companies budget models. I’m happy to award this with our Bang for Buck award for many obvious reasons. Its not just a good product because its cheap, its a great product and its cheap.
