AMD Piledriver FX-8350 Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Oct 30 2012 | 4:17A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we have our hands on the latest CPU from AMD - Piledriver. It is a revision of Bulldozer which promises to bring increased performance. Since Bulldozer was released, AMD have struggled to match Intel for their performance, even though Intel were only using half the number of cores on the chips. AMD have quoted that there will be an upwards of 20% increase in performance and we will be putting that to the test today to find out whether that is the case or not. We certainly hope so, AMD need to regain their lost ground that Intel have increasingly gained over the past number of years with their Core family of processors."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB (CSSD-N240GBGTX-BK) SATAIII SSD Review
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 11:17P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair recently added the Neutron series SSDs to their existing line up. Previous asynchronous and synchronous Force series SSDs all made good use of the SandForce controller. However, the latest Neutron series changes things up adding a Link-a-Media LM87800 controller to an otherwise successful fleet of drives based on Sandforce controllers. It also comes in two different flavors: The Neutron and Neutron GTX. The main difference between the two is the type of NAND Flash inside. The big question is how do they perform? Lets find out! *"

Video Perspective: Lantronix xPrintServer Home for iOS Review
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 10:57P | Printers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
By far the most impressive part about the xPrintServer is the ease of setup; we were literally up and printing on an iPhone 5 within 2 minutes of opening the box. If you are the kind of person that would like the capability to print from your iPad or iPhone but without having to buy a new printer with AirPrint built in, definitely check out this product."

SSD NEWS: Intel 335 Series SSD Review - Low Price and Performance Through 20nm MLC Memory
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 4:17P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been roughly two years since the SSD industry transitioned to SATA 3 and many believed that Intel had missed the bus. Early leaks of the `Intel Road Map` showed a mere X25 upgrade creating concern as the industry was graduating to SATA 3 and Intel had no 6Gbps design in place. Intel jumped back to reality with the `Marvel` based Intel 510 SATA 3 SSD and what we have seen since has been no less than remarkable. It is almost like the Intel SSD boardroom has been equipped with a healthy stock of Red Bull. Since the 510, we have seen releases of the 320 Series, 710, 520, 330, 910, and today Intel is introducing it`s 330 update, the Intel 335 Series 20nm SATA 3 SSD which is being released in only a 240GB capacity at this point. With an MSRP of only $184, we may soon see 240GB SSD pricing get pushed down to that of the 120/128GB level before you know it. The true question will be whether 20nm horsepower can finally allow for that sweet value/performance handshake the SSD arena has been waiting for."

Intel 335 Series 240GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 3:32P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we discussed in the outset of the article, there`s not a lot that`s changed from the 330/520 Series of drives except the move to smaller architecture 20nm NAND which helps make them more affordable. We know the smaller the architecture, the greater rate of errors that occur which must be dealt with by the controller so some firmware changes were likely incurred as well..."

Silicon Power Marvel M60 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 1:51P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With prices of SSD drives taking a serious dive in the past 6 months (so did the quality of some) USB flash drives are not doing much better and so pretty much everyone can now carry at least 32GB of data without worrying about the cost. However capacity is not the only single thing that defines a USB Flash Drive and so leaving out consumers who care more about the design and size of one such device there are also those who care mostly about performance. Now performance (or speed) is perhaps the hardest thing to come by since most manufacturers nowadays pay more attention to size and design in an effort to keep cost to a minimum. So today our main goal is to find out whether or not the latest Marvel M60 USB 3.0 Flash Drive by Silicon Power is just all about looks like most similar devices in the market."

Pivos XIOS DS Media Player Review @MissingRemote
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 12:04P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Have you ever wanted to play those games from your Android smartphone on your big screen? Pivos is relying on a significant amount of these types of users with the introduction of the Pivos XIOS DS. This is a tiny device which runs either a version of Android or Linux and is a crossbreed between being a media player and casual gaming device. With a retail price of $129 (street at the time of publishing around $99) the Pivos XIOS DS is priced higher than popular streamers such as the Roku or AppleTV, but do the extra capabilities of a fully connected Android device make it worthwhile? *"

Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s recent Trinity launch has turned a lot of heads thanks to its split NDA. Many journalists are calling foul due to the way it plays on our current press coverage, but Brett has a different perspective. He believes that this is not only good business, but (at least with this launch) better for the consumer. Read on to understand why."

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.
