With so many headsets to choose from on the market these days, manufacturers have been trying to create a product that sets them apart from the mainstream. Corsair has designed the HS1 to simulate the couch listening experience so the music is not “in your head” but rather surrounding you like your typical home stereo setup would. The design is composed of larger than average drivers, a very creative and comfortable design, and an attention to sound detail that every audiophile and gamer will be in awe of. Their hardware solution is crisp and clean in its audio reproduction and when coupled with their software, gives unmatched control of audio features that are sure to make the experience adjustable to each individuals liking.
Ah the start of another week here at ThinkComputers. If you didn’t already make sure you check out our review of the Thermaltake BlacX 5G USB 3.0 Hard Drive Docking Station. If you don’t have a hard drive docking station then this one is perfect for you! Here is a quote from the review…
“Hard drive docking stations started to appear more frequently about 2 years ago. A hard drive dock is something every system builder and most computer users should have. So often people need to get information off a hard drive and what easier way to do that than with a hard drive dock. The hard drive dock really has not changed that much, but with the introduction of USB 3.0 you are now able to get even faster speeds from hard drive docks. Today we will be taking a look at the BlacX 5G USB 3.0 Hard Drive Docking Station from Thermaltake.” Read On…

Well it is Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year! Not sure if many of you are around to check out the news, but here it is anyways. Also be sure to check out our review of the OCZ RevoDrive 50GB PCI-E Solid State Drive, it is the fastest hard drive we have ever tested! Here is a quote from the review…
“Over the past year we have looked at quite a few solid state drives. The big thing this year was the introduction of the SandForce controller into just about every different manufacturer’s drives. OCZ is one such manufacturer, but they have done something different with RevoDrive. The RevoDrive is not an ordinary 2.5-inch SATA drive we are used to seeing, it is a a 4x PCI-Express expansion card with 2 SandForce controllers configured in a RAID 0 setup for extremely fast transfer speeds. Let’s take a look at this drive and see if it can blow away the competition.” Read On…
