     Mon, Sep 24 2012 | 4:30P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell Inspiron 13z is a stylish looking ultraportable, with a clear design identity and reasonable price. Though not quite an ultrabook thanks to a few unchecked boxes on Intel`s specification listit`s a tad too thick, and it lacks the flash cache needed for speedy boot timesit`s still a decent portable performer."

Crumpler CC 55 Digital Compact Camera Case Review @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Sep 24 2012 | 9:01A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hello all, Im back with another quick review for you of a camera case made for compact cameras like the Fuji Finepix Z900EXR I recently reviewed. The Z900EXR is a great camera but that 3.5 touch screen needs some protection I think and Love Cases has sent me over one that I think does a great job at it. The case I have for review today is the Crumpler CC 55 Digital Compact Camera Case with Strap in a red and nickel color scheme. The case features padding for protection, a small inside pocket for accessories like batteries or memory cards and overall its well made. "

SSD NEWS: Strontium Hawk 120GB SSD Review - Exclusive Testing of SK Hynix First SSD Release
     Sun, Sep 23 2012 | 4:07P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year, SK Hynix announced that they would be manufacturing their own consumer SSDs and followed that with the purchase of Link A Media Devices and their LM8700 controller, a controller which has already proving itself to be one of the top in the industry. Today, we are going to bring you an exclusive review of the fruit of SK Hynix` labors, the Strontium Hawk Series 120GB SSD and, as surprising as it may seem, this SSD is LSI SandForce Driven through and through. The production of a non-LAMD based SSD for Hynix is actually not that shocking as an exclusive contract between Corsair and LAMD was in place long before the Hynix purchase. The length of this contract is not known, however, it accounts for probably one of the smartest moves made by Corsair to date. The performance of their newly released LAMD controlled Neutron Series has taken the industry by storm and can be seen in our recent review of both the Neutron and Neutron GTX."
