Intel Optane Memory Review – 32GB Module With 3D Xpoint Tested
     Mon, May 22 2017 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you building a PC on a budget this year you’ll likely find yourself deciding between a high capacity Hard Disk Drive (HDD) or a smaller, albeit faster SATA III Solid-State Drive (SSD). This is where Intel Optane Memory Modules are expected to fit into the market as it combines Intel 3D XPoint Technology with the latest in SSD caching advancements. The idea for SSD caching is that the important recently accessed data is placed onto really fast caching drive (Intel Optane Memory) and can be quickly accessed when needed by the system instead of having to pull the data from the slower hard drive.

ECS LIVA Z
     Sun, May 21 2017 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”I am still puzzled by the choice of layout after staring at it for these past few weeks. Having two Gigabit Ethernet ports on the back without any USB ports is a questionable decision from a real estate standpoint. During my time with this unit, between a USB flash drive, mouse, keyboard, Ethernet, and HDMI cable, my desk was a mess with cables going every direction. Some of that could be remedied with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and also using Wi-Fi. It seems from my perspective that this is exactly what ECS expects customers to do, and skip the messy cables. Just be aware that if you intend to go full on cables like I did, it will never look clean. Going back full circle, I wish ECS removed the second Ethernet jack and placed 2 USB ports in its' place. I just cannot think of a scenario in which both jacks would be used besides a strange file server.”

VIVO CASE-V07 Case
     Sat, May 20 2017 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”I wasn't sure what to expect at first, since VIVO is known more for monitor mounts, TV mounts, and other non-computer case-related hardware. However, I am not disappointed. The CASE-V07 hits the sweet spot between afforability and features. Not long ago, case designers had to squeeze out as much space as possible for 3.5" hard drives. Now that solid state and M.2 drives have become mainstream, space has opened up for case designers. Plus, as optical drives are slowly being phased out and liquid cooling support gains popularity, case layouts have evolved to use this freed up space. The V07 seems to be sort of in that transitional phase. It still has a spot for an optical drive and a couple of the old 3.5" drives, but isn't full of the associated hard drive cages and support structures that really get in the way and take up valuable space.”
