Nine 21:9 Monitor Roundup reported at 11:19 AM
category: 20/22/24 INCH     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
If you do have your heart set on a 21:9 screen, the excellent factory-calibrated Dell UltraSharp U2913WM is the one to buy. The fact that it's very easy to adjust the brightness uniformity only makes it even more appealing. It gets the Silver Award. For gaming it's not the best option, however, then you should go for the even more affordable LG 29EA73-P. All the other screens are good enough to buy but not for an award.

Article Quote:
"Is this a great mouse? No not really, but it is a pretty good one and while I do have a few minor issues with it, many of them are due to my personal preferences, or simply aesthetic issues. In terms of performance it is a solid product with a budget friendly price tag. For those looking for their first entry into the world of gaming mice, it’s going to do you just fine."

QNAP HS-210 Review reported at 11:02 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
We really like what QNAP has done with this product, by adopting a fanless design so only the drives inside would most likely make some noise when operating; this is more likely to happen while using 3.5’’ drives, while with 2.5’’ we needed to place our ear quite near the unit in order to hear a slight buzz during seek. The new design occupies very little space and uses the top cover as a large heatsink for both drive and also for the internal processor.

Sapphire Dual-X R7 265 Review reported at 10:52 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Guru3d
Article Quote:
Nothing is really new with the R7-265 except maybe it's price performance ratio, which is really good all by itself. See, the AMD Radeon R7 265 will be available late February starting at a price of $149 USD or 109 EUR + VAT. Make no mistake, this card really is the Radeon HD 7850 that has been tweaked a little to offer a hint better performance. But sure, for the money that performance is good, the features very nice, the power consumption is normal and the heat and noise levels are a non-issue (though we did not get to test an actual AMD reference model). We'd recommend the R7-265 to the casual gamers with a monitor resolution of 1920x1080/1200 as absolute maximum. With the extremely modern games that are heavy on the GPU we do advise to look at something a hint stronger.

Sapphire Dual-X R7 265 & Asus R7 260 Review reported at 10:45 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Anandtech
Article Quote:
As far as performance is concerned both of these are stock cards, so there’s little to say regarding their performance that hasn’t been said above. As for their customizations and designs as it relates to build quality and cooling, both look to be very capable contenders. Most importantly, both cards had no problem hitting a proper balance between temperatures and acoustics, offering great temperatures with very low noise levels. We’ll see what other partners’ cards bring in due time once more cards launch, but it’s clear that neither card is going to be easy to beat.

A very capable video card that won’t break the bank. You really don’t need to spend a lot of money in 2014 to get killer 1080p gaming performance.

Sapphire Dual-X R7 265 Review reported at 10:29 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
AMD's new Radeon R7 265 is not all that new. It is based on the company's existing HD 7850 design we first saw in March, 2012 - that is almost two years ago! Nevertheless, the card is, just like its predecessors, an excellent choice for budget conscious gaming in the sub-$200 space. While I wouldn't call it an ideal 1080p card, it still has enough performance for decent gaming at that resolution if you don't mind sacrificing some anti-aliasing or detail levels. Compared to other cards, we see an 8% improvement over the original HD 7850 which didn't have Boost. The R7 265 is also 10% slower than the HD 7870 and stays 6% ahead of NVIDIA's GTX 650 Ti Boost, which will soon be replaced by NVIDIA's upcoming Maxwell-architecture-based GTX 750 Ti.

AMD Radeon R7 265 Review reported at 10:19 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
Our tests show that the Radeon R7 265 has the advantage over Nvidia's GeForce GTX 650 Ti boost in virtually all situations and performs roughly equal to Nvidia's GeForce GTX 660. Considering the fact that on average, GTX 660 cards cost € 170, it's safe to say that the Radeon R7 265 offers an excellent good price/performance ratio, assuming that the card will actually retail at about € 130 later this month.

AMD Radeon R7 265 Review reported at 10:10 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
With an MSRP of $149, the direct competition for the R7 265 is the GeForce GTX 650 Ti which doesn't have the performance necessary to keep up with Pitcairn. The GeForce GTX 660, priced a full $50 more (33% higher) is a strong competitor and, if NVIDIA drops prices, it could maintain parity. If they don't, then AMD once again has the best performance per dollar option in this segment.

AMD Radeon R7 265 Review reported at 10:06 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
"On paper the R7 265 is certainly a competitive product. However, due to its positioning into a narrow no man’s land between the R9 270 and R7 260X, it feels like a hastily prepared, paper launched effort to head off NVIDIA’s rumored Maxwell launches. Those who want some additional gaming grunt and the capability to achieve consistently playable framerates at high detail 1080P settings will likely gravitate towards the slightly more expensive R9 270. Meanwhile, anyone that wants an efficient, HTPC or SFF focused GPU should look to the TrueAudio-equipped, very affordable R7 260X. The R7 265 is nonetheless very appealing for anyone who doesn't want to step up to the R9-series or finds the other R7 offerings underpowered so it should do well provided we actually see it hit $149."
