Thecus N2520 2-Bay NAS Review
     Tue, Aug 26 2014 | 4:00P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the latter part of last year I took a look at Thecus N2560 2-bay Intelligent NAS – one of only two white systems that Thecus have in their library and as a budget busting system it really stood its ground in a market which is getting more and more competitive as time moves on. Whilst I looked at the N2560, I made a number of references to the N2520 which we have here today, simply because it is slightly more powerful system with double the RAM and a slightly faster SoC processor running at 1.6GHz. It is therefore only fair that at some stage I take a look at the N2520 to see if it is really worth the move to the higher performance model, or if this is still a worthy contender in the market. At the time of the N2560 review we could see that there was around £40 difference in cost between the two systems and moving forward to today we note that the price gap is still roughly the same - more importantly though, the price of BOTH units has come down considerably. Where the N2560 was retailing previously for around £270, the same unit can now be found for around £210; whilst the N2520 has dropped from £230 to £170.

Seagate Wireless Plus 2TB Mobile Device Storage Review
     Tue, Aug 26 2014 | 2:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`m well aware that this may sound like a fairy tale for some of you but once upon a time we all used to carry around 1.44 floppy disks with which we shared games, midi tunes (i recall several groups attending various competitions for such things - some are now scene groups) and software with our friends at school. Now although floppies where eventually replaced by CDs and later on by DVDs still i can`t remember a time when we used to carry large amounts of data with us at least not until the first 2GB USB flash drives made their appearance in the market over a decade ago. Of course as you all know now things have changed quite a bit and so most people carry around at least a high capacity USB flash drive while professionals and enthusiasts (even gamers) have no other choice but to carry 2.5/3.5 portable hard drives with them in order to store all the data they need. That being said most people (myself included) own at least one tablet and one smartphone so having the ability to access your data via such devices can be extremely useful and so for the past 2 years we`ve witnessed the introduction of many WiFi enabled drives and card readers that offer exactly that. Well Seagate just took things onto the next level with their latest Wireless Plus Mobile Device Storage that offers up to 2TB of space for people who really want something more from such a device."

Diamond UGA USB 3.0/2.0 to DVI/HDMI/VGA Adapter Review
     Tue, Aug 26 2014 | 10:47A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ultimately, I like the concept. It was nice not having to dig through my bag of cables for the right one to use and it was pretty simple to set up and use. However, with the fad of smaller tablet/PC devices and the ever popular BayTrail and Tegra processors, it becomes difficult to use such a device. The CPU isn`t enough to power the conversion to upscale the output 1080p. Though understandable, my main laptop on the go for work or school is now my ASUS T100, as it can do everything I need it to do besides display 1080p. Though I believe the Diamond adapter has its place, it doesn`t exactly have a home in my travel bag."

Digital Storm Bolt II Small Form Factor PC Review
     Tue, Aug 26 2014 | 10:12A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the desktop PC market showing signs of faded interest over the past several years, Digital Storm is here to help spark interest to those who are gamers at heart. While at CES 2014, Digital Storm showed us their latest custom PC creation, the Bolt II. This hand crafted beauty is designed and built in the United States, which is a rare thing to find in manufacturing these days. The Bolt II was designed to be a Steam Machine or HTPC, but you absolutely aren’t forced to use it as such. Digital Storm meant for this small form factor PC to be extremely powerful, should you choose to pick out all of the high end goodness. The basic Level 1 system comes with an i5 4590, 8GB of RAM, and a GTX 760, whereas the Level 4 starts off with a 4790k, 16GB of RAM, and a GTX 780 Ti. With that said, you have a ton of customization below, in-between, and even above these specs. Read on to see how the Digital Storm Bolt II performs when we put it to the test.
