SteelSeries Siberia Elite Headset Gone Hands-on

At IFA 2013, we caught up with SteelSeries' recently launched Sibera Elite headset, and it blew our minds. Sibera Elite is successor to what is probably the most popular gaming headset, and made the most variants out of. To begin with, it gives you three ways to connect it, to three kinds of devices. The headset features a single 3.5 mm jack for both the headphones and mic, letting you plug it into your smartphone, and use both components. An analog Y-splitter splits that jack into separate 3.5 mm headphones and mic jacks, to connect to PCs analog. If you find your PC's integrated audio to sound only marginally better than a greeting card, you can use the included USB sound card, which is perfectly tuned for the headset. The headset ships with flat cables that don't entangle as easily as round ones. The faux-leather cushioned headset cups wrap around the ears comfortably, and offer a reasonable amount of passive ambient noise reduction. The headband is more flexible than typical Sibera, and shouldn't press too hard against your head. Audio quality when plugged into an iPhone was decent.

DisplayLink Enables 4K Displays over USB and WiGig Connections

DisplayLink, the leading provider of USB Graphics technology, today demonstrated support for 4K Ultra HD displays over both USB and WiGig connections at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF 13) at the Moscone Center, San Francisco.

This vastly increases the available attachable market for 4K monitors.

"Many thought 4K over USB wouldn't be achievable" said John Cummins, VP Sales and Marketing at DisplayLink, "So we pushed the bar further, enabling Ultra HD 4K for both wired and wireless connections. DisplayLink's latest chipset enables users to easily add 4K displays with a single USB adapter or via new wireless technologies such as WiGig (80.211ad). The resolution increase is staggering when used in a business setting for data graphing, spreadsheets, and finance. Upcoming 4K chips will be completely backward compatible with the DisplayLink installed base, enabling business users to easily expand their notebook, tablet, or existing DisplayLink enabled solution to 4K Ultra HD."

Buffalo Rolls Out External Blu-ray XL Writers with Optional Power Input

Typical officegoers often don't understand the underlying power distribution with desktop USB hubs, which plug into the computer's rear USB ports, and give out four downstream ports on the desk. When a power-hungry USB device like external HDD or external optical drive is plugged into such downstream ports, it falls short of power, and doesn't work reliably. To address just that, Buffalo rolled out a new line of portable Blu-ray XL writer drives, which give you the flexibility of both bus-only power, and DC power input (referred to by Buffalo as "power boost").

The new BRXL-PC6VU2-C line of portable Blu-ray writers, pictured below, are capable of running bus-powered. If the drive detects it isn't getting enough power from its USB port, it lights up an LED, which prompts you to plug in its AC adapter, which makes up for the power deficit. When bus powered, the drive is limited to low read/write speeds, to keep power draw from the motor low (reliable, prevents write errors). This neat little arrangement makes sure the drive runs smoothly when it's plugged in directly to a computer, and gives you the flexibility of plugging it into a hub. Measuring 145 x 153 x 19 mm (WxDxH), the drive weighs about 340 g. Blu-ray XL 4-layer and 3-layer discs are written at 4X, single- and double-layer Blu-ray at 6X. When bus-powered, it writes all kinds of Blu-ray RE drives at 2X. When "power-boosted," those speeds go up to 6X. DVDs are written at speeds of up to 8X, CDs at 24X. Slated for an early-September launch in Japan, these drives are expected to go for 10,920 JPY (US $112).
