Is the Gamepad Really Designed for Gaming

Quote: “Game interface designers recognize how terrible the precision
of controller sticks are and pretty much universally decide that a few
undeserved kills are better than frustration from constant input
failure. Because the controller would otherwise be too frustrating
even the most competitive console title includes aim assist. The game
might curl your projectile to the target it believes you intend to
hit; it might nudge or lock your crosshairs to the target; it may do
both and/or some other method.

Thinksound MS01 8mm In-Ear Monitor Earphones Review

October 9, 2012 by  
Filed under Web News

We all know that MP3/4 players, tablets, cellular phones and basically pretty much every portable device that is capable of reproducing media files comes with earphones bundled in the same box (even tape/CD/MD players had one) which are just but basic/low-cost pairs. For good or bad to most people that specific pair will be more than just enough (especially since it comes at almost no cost) but audio enthusiasts and generally people who always want the best they can afford will certainly search the market for something better with the name of one of the well-known manufacturers in the field such as Sennheiser, Sony and others. Honestly that was also the path i used to take up to around 5-6 years ago but after having tested many earphones by quite a few of the lesser known manufacturers i no longer pay much attention on brand names but rather on the product itself. Thinksound is one such manufacturer and ever since i received and tested their TS02+Mic earset roughly two years ago i consider them to be amongst the very few manufacturers that actually hit the sweet spot between audio quality and price without sacrificing build quality, quite the opposite actually. So for the past month we’ve been testing their brand new MS01 8mm in-ear monitor with passive noise isolation to see if it walks on the same successful path as the TS02+Mic.

Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1500W PSU Review

October 8, 2012 by  
Filed under Web News

“The CM Silent Pro M2 1500W Power Supply Unit is nothing short of a mini powerhouse, with a power output capable of feeding no less than six typical home PCs. Clearly, this is not a product meant for the average Joe user but reserved for those who are planning to build really extreme computers, such as Quad SLI dual CPU systems…”

AMD A10-5800K Trinity Desktop APU Review

October 8, 2012 by  
Filed under Web News

“The internal testing from AMD that we can see above shows a 37% increase in the 3DMark 11 score between the first generation A-Series Llano and this generation of A-Series Trinity. While our numbers don’t match their numbers exactly, our Llano system scored 1115 3Dmarks while the AMD internal testing showed 1150 3DMarks. Our AMD A10-5800K scored 1521 3DMarks while they scored 1570. The overall difference was remarkably similar, AMD is boasting an increase of 37% and we saw a difference of 36.4%…”

AMD Trinity Review

Quote: “Trinity has the most impressive integrated graphic unit in the
world. It is very fast. It can run a variety of games at decent
resolutions and quality settings. It has a robust OpenCL component
that can only improve as AMD releases more driver updates and software
vendors update their products to utilize that functionality. Driver
support for the graphics is much better than what Intel offers, and
AMD releases many more driver updates a year. Game support is also
second to none in that particular field.”

Xtreamer Prodigy Black 3D Media Player & Streamer Review

October 8, 2012 by  
Filed under Web News

One of the things i really like about the electronics industry is that no matter how many manufacturers there are at this exact moment in time there will always be more around each day that goes by and so although I’ve been testing hardware (standalone) media players for the past 5 years (or so) i have yet to cooperate with all of them something which some of you keep reminding me from time to time (as you should). Xtreamer may not be the most famous hardware media player manufacturer (A.C.Ryan is and unfortunately they are not doing well so that means little nowadays) but they’ve been around almost from the very beginning (i think they were established in late 2008/ early 2009) and they are known to manufacture cost-effective yet feature-rich solutions. So since their latest media player & streamer is called the Prodigy Black and has been around for over a year we thought it was about time that we took it out for a test drive.

XFX Radeon HD 7850 1GB Core Edition Video Card Review

“When it comes to gaming performance the XFX Radeon HD 7850 1GB Core Edition did better than expected with a screen resolution of 1920×1080! We were able to easily play all the current game titles at 1080p with the image quality settings cranked up! There were a few game titles like Skyrim where we felt a minor hiccup here or there when the frame buffer would fill up, but they were few and far between. If you are looking to save a few bucks and don’t plan on playing beyond 1920×1080 then the XFX R7850 1GB Core Edition should be something to consider…”

Cooler Master NotePal I300 Review

Insert: We all know that Cooler Master has no shortage of products meant to aid in the cooling of your favorite laptop. We have reviewed many over the years and today we will be adding another one to the collection. The new NotePal I300 is a simple but well refined cooler that is thin and very lightweight. The 160mm fan sitting in the middle is what will separate this cooler from the many in the same class or price range.
