LOGITECH C920 Pro Webcam Review

Introduction LOGITECH has been designing peripherals to help others enjoy a better experience since 1981. They started with the mouse and reinvented it several times over the years. They have since expanded into other devices like webcams. I will be looking at the C920 webcam from Logitech, which is labeled as one of the first webcams to support 1080p for video calling. Webcams can also be an important part of your gaming setup; even as much as a game controller nowadays. Live streaming has become extremely popular making a webcam a welcomed device for more than video chatting. Let’s see if this webcam can handle streaming video, audio, and the quality it claims. System Requirements Compatible with: Windows® 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 or later Works in USB Video Device Class (UVC) mode: Mac OS 10.6 or later (HD 720p on FaceTime for Mac or other supported video-calling clients; Full HD 1080p video recording with QuickTime Player) Chrome OS™ Android v 5.0 or above (with supported video-calling clients) USB port Internet connection Warranty Information 2-Year Limited Hardware Warranty Package Contents Webcam with 6-foot cable User documentation Technical Specifications - Full HD 1080p video calling (up to 1920 x 1080 pixels) with the latest version of Skype for Windows – 720p HD video calling (up to 1280 x 720 pixels) with supported clients – Full HD video recording (up to 1920 x 1080 pixels) – H.264 video compression – Built-in dual stereo m...

EMTEC Portable SSD and SuperSpeed Flash Drive

Introduction USB storage is one of those somewhat mundane things that we use all the time without giving it much thought: Backups, sneaker-net transfers, boot devices for installing new OS’s, transportable cinema, you name it. Chances are, you have a number of these devices scattered about your desk, home or office. In all honesty, these devices have utterly revolutionized portable storage, replacing Floppy Disks of all types, Zip Drives, write-able CD’s and in many cases write-able DVD’s and Blu-Ray disks. While USB 1 and USB 2 versions of these devices may have wowed us for a brief instant in time, it wasn’t until the advent of USB 3 that external USB Storage came into its own. The theoretical transfer rates of USB 3 (5 Gb/s or 640 MB/s) coupled to NAND flash with its high read and write speeds make USB external storage as fast or faster than most spinning disks and some internal SSDs and the small size of these devices coupled with their low power requirements make them astonishingly capable. Booting from a floppy or CD/DVD is pretty painful. Booting from a USB 3 thumb drive is (in some cases) all but indistinguishable from booting from an internal HDD or SSD. So, it’s with a certain amount of excitement that I find myself in possession of not one, but two cool storage devices from EMTEC. The first is a 256 GB USB 3.0 Flash drive packaged in the traditional “Thumb Drive” format. The second is a 256 GB USB 3.0 Portable SSD. Yes, ...

Arozzi Vernazza

Introduction Arozzi is a Swedish company that was founded in 2013. Its main focus is for providing the highest level of comfort for consumers that spend long hours on their computers. I will be looking at their top of the line model Vernazza chair, and doing a build log. Arozzi chairs are inspired by championship motorsports that should provide a stylish look.

DREAM MACHINES DM1 Pro S Gaming Mouse Review

Introduction I want to point this intro in another direction. I really do! But there’s just SO many gaming mice!!! I’m beginning to think it’s easier to start a mouse company than it is to become a debt buyer. A quick look through Amazon will tell you I’m not over-exaggerating. However, this many options isn’t a bad thing. While there can be a lot of bad products to sort through, this can also help a buyer find exactly what they want. In reviewing several mice recently, I’ve noticed that each one has the tiniest little differences that can be a huge deal for the way it feels. DREAM MACHINES is at it again with the DM1 Pro S Gaming Mouse. They included a Pixart 3360 optical sensor this time and having used it in other mice, I can already say it’s a welcome addition. DREAM MACHINES is likely a name you haven’t heard of, so here’s a little bit of info about their company. Dream Machines specializes in providing the best solutions for gamers. We wanted to create something that would fulfill the needs of even the most demanding players. Many gamers cannot reach their potential as they a limited by hardware, such as a slow processor or weak graphics card. Our computers make sure that each gamer can reach his or her highest abilities, by offering our customers the most advanced equipment available on the market. Dream Machines is working with the top designers, experts, and manufacturers from around the world. Dream Machines...



970 Pro Mid Range Guide

Guide to Best Mid-Range Gaming PC for Overclocking

Introduction Our site name implies that we deal with nothing other than overclocking. Obviously it would be impractical to only cover overclocking news and reviews, but it means that overclocking is the driving force behind almost everything we do with computers. Even though I understand that there are some good reasons, I’ve noticed that it doesn’t feel like overclocking has been the mainstay of our site recently. It’s time to change that! I’m not saying we’re going to quit covering gaming mice (You have no idea!), but I want to start steering PureOC back to what we’ve always loved about building computers. I’ve seen a lot of guides online for finding just the right components in a computer build. I’ve never found one that satisfies the overclocker in me! Rather than trying to complain about everyone else’s decisions, I figured it was time we bring our own guides for building a PC with overclocking in mind. We’re going to start by listing the best components you need for a great mid-range computer, but I plan to expand this with a high-end and budget range guide as well in the future. Each category will have one selection, but we might throw in an honorable mention if we feel like it was a particularly close contest. With mid-range, we’re trying to stay under $1000 while trying to deliver a full quality 1080p experience. I think we can do that fairly well right now. How did we come to these decisions? Obv...
