Super Mario 3D Land Nintendo 3DS Review
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 10:49A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up until recent times Mario had been significantly split into 2D and 3D style games. If you were on the handheld systems, a 2D experience awaited, whilst on the big boy consoles you got the 3D worlds with a focus on exploration and not rushing through the levels. Nintendo has tried to combine the best of both worlds so to speak with the 3DS Mario game and succeeds in so many ways. Super Mario 3D Land is one of the best Mario games ever made and is everything the evolution that Nintendo has made it out to be. This game finally shows why 3D on a handheld system can matter. For those of you who currently cringe at the thought of 3D gaming on the 3DS due to eyestrain, you should fear not. For us this was the first game we were able to run in full 3D without a problem and it finally seems like the developers are sorting this problem out and it could not have happened for a better game, because it`s the 3D style that makes Super Mario 3D Land such an excellent game."

SilverStone SST-EC03 USB 3.0 PCI-E Card @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 10:33A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Getting access to the gigabytes of data on your external storage devicesis excruciatingly slow as it trickles thru the USB 2.0 port, or at least, that`s how it feels these days. USB 2.0 just can`t get the job done fast enough. USB 3.0 at least for now is the answer for our external access speed requirements. The EC03 card from SilverStone installs into a single lane PCI-E gen 2.0 slot and gives you two internal USB 3.0 ports. So how fast is it? Benchmark Reviews takes the EC03 thru the paces, let`s take a look."

Optoma HD33 3D Projector Review @ TechwareLabs
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 9:43A | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Optoma`s HD33 projector which is a full 3D 1080P projector gets reviewed by TechwareLabs. Through a full 90 day review we were very impressed with the Optoma HD33 projector and were very reluctant to ship it back. The Optoma is a very well designed, very bright and sharp projection. The very simple option and use made the setup and usage ever so simple. All you need is a wall big enough to project on and 3D content."

     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 9:19A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When OCZ bought PC Power & Cooling, the company said that PC Power & Cooling power supplies wouldn`t have modular cabling systems. Well, scratch that. The latest release from the brand, the Silencer Mk III, features a modular cabling system and carries the 80 Plus Bronze certification, coming in 400 W, 500 W, and 600 W versions. Let`s test the 600 W version and see if it is a good choice."

"Beyond the new data visualizations and other plans for Lillesand, Phoronix Test Suite 3.4 will contain much greater support for Google's Android operating system and there will also be greater compatibility with ARM tests using our automated testing framework. A horde of ARM-based testing is also just out on the horizon at Phoronix.com. This is all thanks to the cooperation of Qualcomm's Innovation Center; they recently sent over the Snapdragon MDP MSM8660 for doing this work and it is an interesting and powerful phone."

OCZ Vertex 3.
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Around the same time that SandForce emerged as the leading force in the SSD controller market, OCZ Technology, a company that is known for its memory, shifted its focus to concentrate on SSD storage. A quick glance through OCZ's website shows that the company carries no less than 10 lines of SSDs with different form factors and different interfaces. OCZ has SSDs for the SATA 3 Gbps, SATA 6 Gbps, PCI-Express, SAS, and USB interfaces, and in 3.5-inch, 2.5-inch, and 1.8-inch form factors. OCZ demonstrated its commitment to get ahead in SSDs when it purchased Indilinx for 32 million USD in 2011. The shift in focus paid off well for OCZ, as it has become one of the biggest players in the SSD industry. OCZ is also one of the biggest backers of the SandForce controller. The company was one of the first to adopt the SF-1222 on its Vertex 2, and it is the first ever to deliver the drive with the latest generation of SandForce SF-2000 controller. Their latest consumer based SSD, Vertex 3, is the successor to the popular Vertex 2. We have received the 240GB version of the Vertex 3 that we are going to take a look today.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
