Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
EAH5850 DirectCU TOP offering from ASUS - EAH5850 DirectCU TOP offering from ASUS
Thu, May 06 2010 | 12:00PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"When it comes to performance there was no doubt that the ASUS EAH5850 DirectCU TOP/2DIS/1GD5 Radeon HD 5850 video card was faster than a reference designed ATI Radeon HD 5850. In all of our game tests we saw a slight performance increase thanks to the 40MHz GPU speed boost and 125MHz memory boost. With the new Direct CU cooler and increased performance, this card is a decent value at $339.99 plus $1.99 shipping. However, what really sells this card is how well it overclocks! This thing is an absolute monster, reaching 1000MHz GPU core and 1200MHz memory. While these are not record breaking clocks, the fact that the bundled cooler is easily able to cope with the additional heat and do so at low noise levels. When you add in that ASUS gives you a utility to up the voltage and still backs it up with a 3-year warranty, it's really easy to overlook the $20 price difference between a reference ATI Radeon HD 5850 and the ASUS EAH5850 DirectCU TOP..."

OCZ Onyx 32gb Solid State Drive - OCZ Onyx 32gb Solid State Drive
Thu, October 21 2010 | 3:40PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"Solid state drives are expensive, and they're a big change from what we've come to accept a hard drive to be in a computer. For some, it's easy to rush out and buy the latest SSD model and away they go. For others, investing in the high price tag of a solid state drive when they aren't gaining much storage space can be a tough battle. Up until now, to get even a 30gb SSD would often cost over $130CDN - a price I could buy a 2+ Terabyte hard drive for. However, OCZ has recently released their Onyx series - a new line of SSD's aimed to bring the basic benefits of this technology to users at a cost they can afford. I'm lucky enough to have a 32gb Onyx on the test bed today, and look forward to having some first-hand experience with this new model."
