Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
ASUS Rampage III GENE Motherboard Review - ASUS Rampage III GENE Motherboard Review
Thu, August 19 2010 | 9:02AM | PermaLink Feedback?
"Today, we have the successor to the Rampage II Gene, the aptly named Rampage III Gene. As with the Rampage III Extreme we reviewed earlier this year, the Gene is an evolution of ASUS's flagship platform. One of the caveats of the Extreme was its size, which at 1inch wider, potentially created compatibility problems but the Gene manages to pack most of the features from its bigger brother into its smaller dimensions. As such, unique ASUS features such as Probelt, COP EX and other ROG capabilities are present. We can also expect to see SATA 6Gb/s and USB 3.0 implementation thanks to the Marvell and NEC controller chips. More notably, the ASUS SupremeFX X-Fi 2 onboard sound makes a comeback. For the hardcore enthusiasts, the LN2 specific modifications have been given a miss but the ROG connect feature has been integrated for remote overclocking. The board may not cater to overclockers like the Extreme does but at its price point, the Gene promises to deliver excellent performance and a feature rich experience to even compete with other full sized ATX motherboard."

Lite-On, a global leader of optical storage solutions, announces the eHAU424 external 24X DVD/CD writer. Incorporating a USB 2.0 connection, the eHAU424 allows for greater flexibility when using the drive across different computer systems.

Along with Lite-On's internal 24X DVD writers, the eHAU424 offers the fastest DVD recording available. The eHAU424 also features both LightScribe and SmartErase -technologies designed for true power users who are concerned with more than just writing speeds.

"PLDS is excited to bring the extremely fast 24X writing speeds to an external unit," said Christine Hsing, Marketing Manager at PLDS. "With features like LightScribe and SmartErase included, the drive is both high-quality and convenient to meet any user's needs."

The included LightScribe labeling technology allows users to label their discs without any marker or paper labels. Just burn data on the data-side of a LightScribe compatible disc, flip the disc over, reinsert it into the drive and burn a beautiful label based on personal artwork, text or photographs.

SmartErase, Lite-On's patented technology provides users with a permanent solution for erasing discs with confidential data. With SmartErase, users can be sure that private and sensitive data is securely erased and cannot be recaptured.

The eHAU424 writes DVD+/-R at 24X, DVD+/-R DL at 12X, DVD+RW at 8X and DVD-RW at 6X. DVD-RAM can be written at 12X. The eHAU424 writes CD-R at 48X and CD-RW 32X and reads DVD-ROM at 16X and CD-ROM at 48X.

The eHAU424 is available now with an MSRP of $69.99. For more product information, please visit
