Samsung Galaxy Note Smartphone Review
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While many of today's better smartphones offer dual-core processors and 1GB of RAM, alongside plenty of onboard storage, one of the easiest differentiating points between smartphones today has become the screen--size, resolution, and screen technology are all considerations. Samsung is pushing the former limits of smartphone screen sizes with the introduction of the new Samsung Galaxy Note. This smartphone offers one of the largest screens we've seen from a phone yet – 5.3 inches. In addition to being large, it is also a gorgeous display which uses Super AMOLED technology and offers a resolution of 1280x800...

Targus USB 3.0 Dual-head Video
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the quickest ways to boost productivity in the workplace is by adding more monitors to a workstation. It's a simple enough task unless you're cursed with a lack of available video ports--a plight all too common for laptops and smaller PCs. Today I'll taking an in-depth look at a USB 3.0 answer to this problem, the SuperSpeed Dual Video Adapter from Targus. Can we expect this adapter - powered by the DisplayLink's latest DL-3000 - to be an excellent showcase for what's bound to crop up in a number of USB-driven monitors, projectors and docking stations to be released later this year? Read on to find out.

Super Talent Introduces USB 3.0 and PCIe Flash Disk Modules
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of NAND flash solutions, today announces two new Flash Disk Module (FDM) solutions for Industrial and Embedded applications.

Already known for their IDE, SATA and USB flash disk modules; Super Talent now introduces two new FDM solutions focused on increase performance, PCIe and USB 3.0 FDM modules.

NEWS FLASH: CeBIT 2012 Ultimate Booth Babe Collection at The SSD Review
     Sat, Mar 10 2012 | 4:55P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have done it at each of the other technology shows with resounding success and thought we might tackle it once again at CeBIT 2012 in Hannover.  We think you might agree that there is one thing that simply cannot be overlooked as we travel CeBIT, this being European beauty. From Ms Germany,  Anne-Kathrin Kosch, to CES participants, and all the way to a member of the German police herself, there is definitely an aura about European women that cannot be simplified in word alone."

Satechi Audio Move SD Portable MP3 Player Stereo Speaker System @ TestFreaks

Posted by: STAFF
When is a pair of speakers not just a pair of speakers? When it?s the Audio Move SD from Satechi! Today for review I have the Audio Move SD which is a small portable speaker unit that can be used with anything that has a standard audio jack. It works very well as a speaker, but that?s not all it is as it?s an MP3 player too. Yes you can use the Audio Move SD as a stand alone MP3 player, just put your music on a microSD card and then insert it into the Audio Move SD and just hit play. So read on for a quick review of an interesting little gadget? "

SilverStone TJ04-Evolution Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Sat, Mar 10 2012 | 4:55P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In SilverStone`s own description, they bring to light that the original chassis concept was introduced in 2004 for this specific Temjin chassis. The original TJ04 looks like a relic at this stage in chassis design as well and is a great candidate to take everything out of the box that made is so past tense in today`s market and introduce it as something much better equipped to battle with the massive amount of competition in the mid-tower segment. So, SilverStone did just that - they took one of the better selling cases of it`s given era and redesigned just about everything, but left enough of the original design to remind you of the original design. On the outside there is plenty new going on, the face plate has been redesigned, but is where the new Temjin keeps the design elements of the original. There is a windowed version of this chassis and we will be seeing that version today. On the opposing panel there is a dual fan filter for a new way of introducing air into the Temjin. Speaking of filters, the top of the chassis also has a dual fan filter that is removable. Even the back of the case gets a bit of the redesign to offer things wanted in today`s chassis. On the inside there is too much that has changed to go over it at this point, you will need to keep reading if you want to see just what the new evolution of the TJ04 offers there."

ASUS Radeon HD 7750 1 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Mar 10 2012 | 4:25P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Radeon HD 7750 OC is a custom implementation of the HD 7750 design from ASUS. It comes at reference pricing, yet features slightly increased clock speeds out of the box. We have seen its cooling solution before on other cards from the company so it is a tested design that works well and delivers low temperatures and low noise levels."

Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 OC
     Sat, Mar 10 2012 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On a more positive note Gigabyte should be recognized for taking the Radeon HD 7770 and improving it. The shorter PCB design means that the card will fit better in mid-sized computer cases while the use of better components improves durability and could even help with overclocking performance. Finally the upgraded cooler is another significant improvement that not only helps keep this card cool but also very quiet.

Zotac ZBOX ID80 Plus Mini PC Review
     Sat, Mar 10 2012 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Zotac is emerging as a major player in the mini PC market and you'll find a boatload of ZBOX units if you visit the company's website. The one we have with us today is the ZBOX ID80 Plus, one of the newer units built around Intel's recently released Atom "Cedar Trail" refresh. It comes equipped with an Intel Atom D2700 processor, 2GB of DDR3-1066 RAM, 320GB hard drive, and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M GPU. There's also onboard Wi-Fi, Gigabit LAN, HDMI output, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 support, and an IR receiver with a media remote bundled in. All this and quite a bit more comes packed in a diminutive box that measures 7.40 inches x 7.40 inches x 1.73 inches that you can plop inconspicuously into your A/V rack or attach to the back of your HDTV via its VESA monitor mount...

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
