Question: Hardware Reviews

Does anyone know any good web sites where computer hardware is reviewed? Such as peripherals and CPU's? You see I am about to buy a AMD K6-2 CPU and I would like to read more reviews on this product.

Preferred Solution: Hardware Reviews

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

does anyone here know of any websites or online stores that have reviews/feedback of computer hardware from customers who have bought and used the product? this includes any kind of hardware from motherboards, CPU, fans, cases, power supplies, anything.

newegg.com lets people leave feedback and thats exactly what i want, but i can not find any other website that does this too.

Answer:customer hardware reviews

Try tomshardware.com. I always prefer a review from somebody that knows what he's talking about rather then reviews from kids that don't know what they're talking about.

I'm looking around the internet for as many video card reviews that I can find. I'm deciding between ATI and Nvidia cards, namely the top ones. Naturally, I'm sure, once the new ones (the NV40 and the....ATI one....), reviews are going to pop up everywhere.

Can anyone refer me to their favorite and most trusted hardware review sites? I don't want to follow biased information.

Answer:most trustable hardware reviews?

Anandtech is my favourite source for CPU, mobo and videocard reviews... unlike 'other' sites that tend to stick with one or another manufacturer on convinience (which is even more obvious for us working on the medium) you should be able to trust on Anand's info.

I of course could just build one from scratch, but this is a recommendation for a friend for his business and they have to have a vendor-bought system.

The fine folks over at Hardware Secrets are pretty well known for their excellent reviews of different hardware, including power supplies. They are one of the few sites that really knows how to test a power supply. There is MUCH more to it than hooking up a digital multimeter to a spare molex connector and then running an assortment of load/idle tests and recording the output from the multimeter. Most sites will not test the noise and ripple in a PSU (and "noise" here does not mean the sound from the fan, it means "line noise"; a decent metaphor would be "static"). I recently read a review where the testing uses only a voltmeter, and the reviewer states the power supply had a bit more ripple than he would like to see. :confused Without an oscilloscope, it is impossible to measure ripple, so it would appear that the reviewer is talking out his a** and has no idea what "ripple" really means or what it is. This review can be found here, the "ripple" comment is on page 5, on page 6 you'll see the PSU received a "Top Rank Award". However, Hardware Secrets reviewed this same power supply (review is here), and you'll see that it miserably failed the ripple/noise testing, and in fact the unit burned up when trying to draw the advertised 750w the unit is rated for. Yet the other reviewer gave it a "Top Rank Award". So- all ranting aside, do not trust any power supply review that doesn't include '... Read more

Answer:Power Supply Reviews - Why 99% of online reviews are WRONG!!!

Hi,

Good report except that setting a voltmeter to AC and measuring a DC voltage will give you a reading of the AC component (Ripple) riding on the DC.

Hi All,

I created this thread as an FAQ for the release of the new AVG 8. I thought we could use this for any discussions or issues about the new release. Here is what is known so far:

1.) It is unknown as to whether or not AVG 7.5 users will be automatically updated to AVG 8, although a comment on the board said they didn't think an auto update pushed will be forced.

2.) It has been known to be buggy and slow according to some of the C-Net reviews. This could be the sign of a new release or hopefully not a bad omen of what is to come from a once-great company.

3.) There are 3 versions of AVG 8.0:

a.) AVG Anti-Virus 8.0 Commercial Version: This is a paid version that includes Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Resident Shield, Root Kit Remover Real Time Protection with a Link Scanner that scans sights before you go to them and a Link Search, that indicates the safety of a sight before you go to them similar to McAfee Sight Adviser.

b.) AVG Internet Security 8.0: A paid version with all the features of (a) plus a software firewall

c.) AVG Anti-Virus Free 8.0: The free version that includes Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware scanning and the Link Search (Site Adviser clone)

Please indicate in this thread: (Discuss each that applies to you.)

1.) The version of AVG 8 you have installed.

2.) Any problems with the download or installation

I'm using Ad-Aware 2007 Plus for spyware, and NOD32 as anti-virus.

I just had viruses removed from my hard drive and Windows XP. The technician who helped me installed NOD32, instead of Avast which was installed before the successful virus attacks. My browser was also changed from IE 6 to Mozilla Foxfire, which the tech thinks is less susceptible to virus attacks.

My system runs well now. I looked at CNet Review to rate different antispyware products, and my Ad-Aware 2007 was rated last of ten products, so I don't really know who to believe.

Comments are welcome.
 

Answer:Antispyware reviews

Did you purchase Ad-Aware 2007 Plus? If so, you might to supplement it (if not replace it) with Spy Sweeper by WebRoot. It's highly rated and well respected. Generally, people use multiple anti-spyware apps. When talking free apps, Ad-Aware (free edition), Spybot S&D, AVG anti-spyware, and one or two others are frequently mentioned.

I'm interested in the MSI K7N2G motherboard as the basis of a new system I hope to build, and would be interested in any reviews,particularly around the onboard graphics which I have seen is just below a geforce4 mx440 spec.

would this board with 2 x matched 256M 333 memory, be able to provide the graphics to play my boys games, they are into gaming and have XBOX etc, they also have PCgames.

or must i get a graphics card and if so, which other motherboard should I get that does not have built in graphics?

I have also looked at the MSI 865PE-Neo2 LISR2 but this combo is expensive and starts to put the system outside my budget
 

Answer:MSI K7N2G reviews

You can get an MSI or ASUS motherboard for about $80~100 without onboard video. Then spend $75 for a Ti4200-64mb if you want to do some serious gaming.

The onboard 3D video on the NForce2 will play 2001 games and older pretty good. The Ti4200 will allow your kids to play UT2003, Unreal2 and Half Life 2 fairly good... without a lot of money.

I am looking for some reviews of the Cisco PIX 501 firewall. The reviews I need have to come from a credible sources, so the the reviews posted by users on web sites do me no good (othrwise my job would be a bit easier).

I have tryed the usual (google, computer world, network world, Cnet, etc), but so far I have come up with nothing useful!

I appreciate the help!
 

Answer:Cisco PIX 501 Reviews?

Reviews like that are probably going to pretty hard to find. Your best bet is probably going to be looking at a round-up of enterprise/smb-class firewalls and getting data about the PIX from there. It specifically has to be a 501? There are little differences between the 501 and other PIX units running 6.x code other than hardware and license limitations, and you dont need a "review" to figure that out.

Is this for a university class?

Here's what I found on google, seems more like a sales pitch than an honest review:
http://techrepublic.com.com/5100-1035_11-1047875.html

I know you said you couldn't do it...but I could answer almost anything about the 501 (and be honest about it). If you are allowed to do an interview let me know and I can give you my credentials. The 501 is a good unit, but it has its limitations.

Hello all,

I need help to understand who reviews Windows 8 app games ? My app titled "10-Up" has so far been featured by the Video Game Island from Australia and as a developer from Australia many of my contacts are from here. Much of the information from Microsoft is good but only gets you so far.

Any Windows 8 Developers out there have tips to reaching out to other markets?
Or if you're a user, does an app like mine appeal to you?

10-Up app for Windows in the Windows Store

I don't intend to spam my app but more so interested in other peoples experiences in a currently under developed market (but surely growing)

For interest sake, my app is based on a popular game played on trains where you combine 4 numbers to become 10. Now you can play it in an app environment against a timer and with combo's etc.

Thanks in advance !

This may be a controversial topic!

I am seeking advice on where the best product reviews for hardware can be found in print and on the web.

For print, to date I have been relying mostly on PC Magazine. I don't always agree with the fine points of their assessments, but I do trust their overall testing and reporting. Moreover, in all the years they have been publishing, I'm not aware of them being sued, at least successfully, over a biased product review. And since they give both the parameters as to how the test was done, and the means for one to repeat the test themselves, I consider that pretty solid. PC Week and InfoWorld come in as close seconds.

Are there better or more up-to-date print sources?

How about on the Web?

Question: 3 new game reviews

Splinter Cell(SC) and Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow(PT).  I am really enjoying SC.  The graphics are really nice as is the overall gameplay.  All the missions require a mix of stealth and action with some missions require no kills whatsoever.  You can opt to shoot your opponent or sneak up behind and knock him out.  The AI in SC is limited however so it's possible to shoot someone and easily evade his buddies.  The AI in PT is MUCH more advanced.  On finding a body most often their first response is to call in backup.  SC does not allow for multiplayer while even though PT does, it's not nearly as fun as the solo missions.  Both these games are worth buying and for me, that's saying ALOT!Star Wars Battlefront.  This is a mmfps along the lines of Battlefield 1942.  At first I enjoyed it very much.  It's always fun to put on a suit of StormTrooper armor and run around or play a droid.  It has the same idea of BF 1942 in that you can take over neutral or enemy spawn points and you have only so many tickets (team deaths) before you lose.  There are some vehicles you can drive/fly but I find the ground cars move too slow and the ships move much too fast.  The maps tend to be just a bit too large to make the cars useful and the maps are too small to maneuver effectivly in a ship.  As for the characters.. as fun as it is to be a StormTrooper or droid, any given character (4-5 choices depending on the te...

Battlefield 1942 itself wasn't very exciting either, trees the size of a pencil and no obstacles to hide behind when two Shermans are storming in on your position. I still have to try Splinter Cell, if it's anything like Hitman, it's bound to be ace.

Does anyone know where I can find comparisons on newer processors, and does anyone have any opinions on the benefits of AMD over Intel or vice versa.

Thank you

Hi I'm an android user.
Planning to go for a windows phone.
I recently came across the Microsoft Lumia 535.
Just wanted to know a few reviews about it from people who are using this phone.
I've heard that there are few touch issues with it... any idea when it will be resolved in Chennai?
Viewers are sayin to go for hardware version 5 and not for version 3 what is the difference between both and how do I know when to buy the phone...
Do windows phones lag?
Feedback please

Answer:Can I get a few Lumia 535 reviews?

Hello, in my opinion you should go for Lumia 630. I saw on flipkart and 630 is cheaper than 530/535. Also had an better processor. Btw I'm not in India but looked up on flipkart for the info before I give my opinion. 530 has some screen issues but Microsoft is in the process of using an fix. Coming to hardware, there is no V3 or V5. Nokia/Microsoft releases handsets in number order (5xx,6xx,7xx,8xx,9xx,10xx and 15xx) where 9xx(920,925,928,930) I'd the flagship, 10xx(1020), is a camera phone and 15xx(1520) is an phablet. 7xx and 8xx are mid range phone and 5xx and 6xx are budget phone. Also none of the Windows phone lag and Windows phone OS is built for low end hardware and then scaled up depending the hardware. So you will never see lag on low end Windows phone like on Android. In conclusion, buy Nokia/Microsoft Lumia 630 if you can otherwise, buy Lumia 530/535. Good luck

Question: Code Reviews?

Is there any interest in the developers community for an online code review group? What I mean is, for those of us who work in small shops, it would be nice to have the code review process like larger shops do. Also, I like to work on some independent development projects at home (as most of us do I think) when the inspiration hits me (rare).

The only problem I can see with this is the theft of intellectual property by unscrupulous developers.

Comments please.

Thanks

Hi wirelesslaptop,

The Upper Notebook is a 14 "T61p 4:3, takes on the size, I believe almost nothing compared to the other 14" 4:3 most of the devices also had time in hand.
 
Link to post and pictures: T510 vs 14" T61p 4:3
 
Some short impressions:
-  My goodness, the device is wide! - Processing is still very first cream, no creaks, no bends through - The display is very WHITE, and the color temperature slightly cooler here, thanks to LEDs, I think times - The new keyboard is awesome - Degrees, the fan is running, but it is hard to hear - ThinkLight works as it should do it, say it appears the keyboard is not in the eye

I am buying a computer system for gaming... but here's the problem. I went to the 2 sites you recommended (Cyberpower and Ibuypower) but before ordering, I checked out their customer reviews... seems they were really bad.

Now my question is where can I find out which site has the fewest problems? I know that mostly only people who have had problems will bother to post, so I'm trying to take that into account.

Is Cyberpower really as awful as the reviews would indicate? I had configured a great system there but the reviews said that MANY of their systems were dead on arrival. At least one review said they had replaced the chosen parts with cheap subsitutes. (specifically the mother board and chip)

Short of googling every site out there that sells systems...what can I do to be sure I am dealing with someone I can trust?

Hi wany

welcome to sevenforums

I have been running win 7 since december and I personally feel it substantially better than vista. Bugs in the early builds were video, raid, and some bios. by the time build 7100 came out most were resolved. If you gave us your computer specs we could tell you more.

One says I have Abebot, the other says I have TrojanDownloader.XS; each directs me to a website, http://antispyware-reviews/biz/?wmid=(etc.), which tries to sell me software to fix.

Now, I have few issues with IE6.....as long as its fully patched. Am afraid to download this new, unknown AOL thing should it kill my IE6 and if I hate it, require reinstallation of IE...and all my custom settings.

Only review I found is here: http://www.lastpodcast.net/2006/10/0...ride-a-review/

I loaded AOL Freeride on a computer for a customer two days ago. It did not mess with IE settings or cause any problems with the computer.

The only thing I did not like, was it added the the AOL security software back to this computer. This is the same package that let it get trashed by viruses to start with. I was able to replace the AV software with Avast and loaded some other antispyware software.

Question: AntiVirus Reviews?

I can't find timely or even common Anti-Virus Reviews.

They used to be more common, more timely. In years past, it seemed there were dozens of sites offering tests and reviews, almost on a monthly basis, and certainly quarterly. Then, of course, there was the issue of validity, consumer trusting of those reviews, etc, but the sheer quantity of reviews gave credence to some products.

In the past year, however, I see fewer and fewer websites offering AV tests. Perhaps the perception of "everyone's doing it" led more and more reviewers to stop their own efforts?

Do you have a set of favorite AV review sites?

On a side note, a good many reviews seldom listed the useful feature of "Product offers downloadable ISO for a boot-up scan process." I greatly prefer the products that offer this, most of whom seem to do at least a monthly update of their ISO file. (It's not that I believe every Virus will be cured, but I am still old-school enough to believe that pre-boot 'cures' offer some cures that post-boot fixes can't.)
 

Answer:AntiVirus Reviews?

Not unless you want to buy, and change, your antivirus every month. The best changes and common sense and any decent anti-virus is all you need.

Avast, AVG, Panda Cloud for example are solid.

Question: Printer Reviews

Does anyone know of a good website for printer reviews? Specifically I'm looking for ink usage, cartridge price and styles, basically what it's like to live with. The last thing I want to do is spend the money on a printer and accidently buy an Epson (Epson owners will know what I mean buy that comment).Before anyone posts a Google search of "printer review", I know how to do that. I'm looking for recommended places to go, people you think are right.

Answer:Printer Reviews

The internet is full of reports about ink costs.  At one lime  it was said that lasers printers were the best choice for high volume printing. But the initial cost of a laser is still too much for most of us home users. Personally, I have given up after I be owner of three or four laser printers.Inkjet printers are now as cheap as the could ever be. But the cost of ink is an issue. The standard cartridges are overprices and are not full of ink.Using refills costs the cost down, but is a hassle when you get  some bad  refiles.Your run the rest of doing harm to the printer.Here is recent report about popular printers. http://www.inkfarm.com/Best-Printers-for-Saving-Ink--2011I think the report is fair. And it is no surprise that Kodak gets special attention.

I would be glad to hear it from your experties. 

Answer:Reviews on Hi-Fi 3D Technology>?

There are no real reviews out for the Biostar boards with this feature, but I would expect it to be much the same as previous boards with "Creative X-Fi" and similar - i.e. a cut down version of a good product making it no better than others, or in fact the same product with some fancy drivers and a new interface, which is still no better than others.Onboard sound is better than it used to be but still, IMO, no match for a good dedicated sound card.  Sound cards aren't exactly pricy, the Xonar DG or DGX starts from less than ?20 and is miles better than onboard.

As expected the HD 7970 puts up a good showing. Earlier estimates of improvement of ~30% in gaming and ~50+% in compute tasks (over the HD 6970) seem pretty much spot on.
All in all a nice card - great power consumption, a little loud, and a nice bump in performance over the GTX 580 and HD 6970. Looks like a good overclocker with worthwhile gains over stock clocks. Very welcome after the HD 6950/6970's good OC potential / lacklustre OC performance.
