Roccat Isku FX Review reported at 05:23 PM
category: Keyboards     website: DarkVision Hardware
Article Quote:
When I review products one of the aspects I care a lot about is how much value the product delivers at its price point. In this case, I feel the Isku FX falls a little short. In a time when gamers are becoming accustomed to mechanical keyboards $99.99 (99.99EUR) is quite a lot to ask for a membrane-based keyboard - especially considering its lack of NKRO and its underwhelming look & feel. Not everything is bad though, the Isku FX delivers great customization options and performs well in gaming as well as everyday use. At a lower price point this would be a great keyboard, but at this price level it's hard to overlook all of its imperfections.

Gigabyte F2A85XN-WIFI Review reported at 12:12 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2 Motherboards     website: Guru3D
Article Quote:
"Audio wise you got your 8-channel Realtek based sound, Ethernet wise a nice Gigabit RJ-45 is present and then you'll spot USB 3.0 and the four SATA3 ports, which we tested and they manage 500 MB/sec easily. That last fact makes this setup BTW ridiculously interesting for your own home made NAS setup as these devices can be setup in a variety of RAID options as well. Yeah, what I am trying to say here is that these setups offer true value for money. We see huge potential for it as NET PC, entry level gaming PC, NAS functionality and obviously this is the shizznit for building excellent yet affordable HTPCs. So if you are in the market for a simple PC to internet on, do a little work, play a simple game, listen to music on... then it won't get much better then this. Recommended, if this is what your requirements and needs for a PC are of course."

Cooler Master CM Storm Havoc Review reported at 12:03 PM
category: Mice     website: Funky Kit
Article Quote:
Cooler Master made a mouse for those who are looking for the highest available DPI. Having 8200dpi available at the push of a button sure looks to impress some. Even if you don't need such a high DPI level the Cooler Master Havoc Mouse does a good job at tracking regardless of the surface you use. However, if you're a left-handed gamer, then you're left out in this round.

Some might consider the price of about $80 to be high for a CPU cooler, but you’re getting one of the best air coolers on the market backed and designed by a company who knows how to make a cooler.

Asus PA249Q Review reported at 11:48 AM
category: 20/22/24 INCH     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"For gamers a panel like this is not going to be exactly what they need, but again the colour and clarity that, to be honest, has to be seen in the flesh to be believed is amazing and it really will make purchasing a top end graphics card even more worth it with the high level of detail that they can output."

Corsair Carbide Air 540 Review reported at 11:40 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
If I can sum up my experience with this case, it’s the following: we need more manufacturers to think like this. Corsair is relatively new to the computer case scene, and with every release they seem to deliver an enclosure that contains features you just don’t find in many other cases. I can say with certainty this is a case I would wholly recommend to anyone that likes to tinker inside their builds, as I’ve never had such an easy time working around inside a computer case.

A great little product from Antec, let down by an inflated price tag.
