NCASE M1 Review reported at 12:42 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
"The NCASE M1 is a beautifully simple enclosure that accomplishes the goal of creating a fantastic mini-ITX solution. It’s styled with a minimalist approach, and small enough to be unobtrusive just about anywhere. The quality of the case is high, and it certainly feels like a premium part - especially with its ultra-light aluminum construction. If these become widely available the M1 would make a solid recommendation for someone looking to go all-out on a mini-ITX build."

PNY GeForce GTX 780 XLR8 OC Review reported at 12:30 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
The Radeon R9 290X provided equal if not superior gameplay performance for about $50 more, without even overclocking it. PNY has come a long way to catering to hardware and gaming enthusiasts. This is an appealing video card in terms of performance for your dollar. It makes the AMD Radeon R9 290 seem less relevant, and the R9 290X seem not as appealing somehow, and that is a hard thing to do. We look forward to evaluating further enthusiast level PNY video cards.

Diamond USB Xtreme Sound 7.1 XS71HDU Review reported at 12:24 PM
category: Sound Cards     website: Hardcoreware
Article Quote:
"If what you want is to greatly expand the audio functionality of your PC or laptop without having to install an internal card, the Diamond XS71HDU makes for an easy recommendation. It performs quite well at its price point, especially when you consider the raw specs. 8 channels of analog output, 2 analog in, digital output AND input, all at 24 bit 192 KHz. I can only think of one other consumer product that does this, and it costs $400."

Cooler Master V1200 Review reported at 12:10 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The V1200 has all the credentials to be on the very top of your shipping list if you need an incredibly strong PSU and money isn't an issue. It is strong, offers top performance along with high reliability, is equipped with a Protechnic FDB fan that will last forever, and comes with a seven year warranty. $300 is a very fair price for what is on offer here."

Nofan CR-80EH Review reported at 12:03 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"NoFan have done a great job on the CR-80EH, it may not be much use for high-end overclocking, but it was never designed to be. It was designed to be seen and not heard, given that it’s one of the best looking and quietest CPU coolers I’ve ever tested, I’d say NoFan has succeeded in style, making this an ideal choice for a HTPC or similar style system."

Creative Core Sound Blaster Omni Surround 5.1 Review reported at 11:31 AM
category: Sound Cards     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
"With the Sound Blaster Omni Surround 5.1 USB Sound Card, Creative gives us the possibility to upgrade the audio for both Windows and Mac laptops but also to enhance signal quality for desktops which do not feature a dedicated sound card (mini-ITX builds anyone?). The supplied software has a similar look as the one we have seen at the high-end model and quite a few of the features found there are also available on the Omni. Even if this product has quite a small footprint, we get connectivity for 5.1 systems, but also optical output if required."

Audioengine A2+ Review reported at 11:23 AM
category: 2 Piece Systems     website: APH Networks
Article Quote:
"Simply put, the Audioengine A2+ is worth every penny. Sure, there are some imperfections in design, like its unintuitive rear volume control. A slightly better built in DAC would be nice, too. Including the desktop wedge rather than making them optional will definitely make the package more appealing. But if you are looking for a set of compact powered desktop speakers with sound that will blow you away, pick up a pair along with a subwoofer of your choice, and be blown away."

Philips 298P4QJEB Review reported at 11:10 AM
category: 20/22/24 INCH     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
Overall I very much liked the Philips monitor. If you ignore the quirks regarding inputs (lack of VGA for me mainly (ED: REALLY!)) and the inability to use PIP and PBP with anything other than a Display Port connection; and simply look at the screen and stand arrangement (and that stand is VERY good!), there is no doubt that the Philips 298P4QJEB is a very capable monitor.

Jabra Solemate Mini Review reported at 10:59 AM
category: Digital Speakers     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"The Solemate Mini (black) currently retails for USD99.47 inside the USA (Amazon.com) and for 73Euros inside the EU (Amazon.co.uk) a price tag that puts it amongst the lowest cost portable wireless speakers in the market by well-known and established brands. Certainly if you can afford to climb a bit higher you can opt for the normal Solemate or perhaps the A33 by TDK but for that amount of money the Solemate Mini is the obvious choice and that's why it gets our Golden Award."

Asus RT-AC68U Review reported at 10:15 AM
category: Internet Routers     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Asus are well-known for pushing out the speed boundaries to even greater lengths when we consider their motherboards and graphics cards so it is only fair that they take this drive to push further and deliver us one of the world’s fastest wireless routers. With jaw dropping speeds on offer along with a feature set that is full to the brim, Asus may not be the first name you think of when you come to choose your next wireless router, but after experiencing what they can do, it is hard to see why they haven’t been on the top spot for longer.

BitFenix Comrade Review reported at 09:57 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
The whole package the BitFenix Comrade offers is very good. Yes, you could fixate on what it doesn’t have, but at only £29.99 you should be looking at what it does offer. There are very few cases available that offer the same or even similar features in this price range and all of the minor issues can easily be remedied without having to dig too deeply into your pocket. For anyone not looking for an entry-level case, looking towards their first build or perhaps even their very first case modifications the BitFenix Comrade is very hard to ignore and is easy to recommend.

XSPC RX360 Review reported at 09:56 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
Of course for people who are willing to spend more to get the best possible cooling performance XSPC also offers the premium AX series of radiators (we will try to get one of those to compare against) while for people on a tighter budget the EX series should be more ideal. Regardless the latest RX360 V3 Triple Fan Radiator offers very good performance, is smaller than similar radiators and also costs less so what else is there for us to say other than that it gets our Platinum Award?
