Patriot EP Pro 32 GB SDXC/SDHC Card Review
     Fri, Aug 03 2012 | 10:29A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The price isn`t quite as bad as I was expecting for the performance. The question always comes: it is super-fast; but at what cost? When it comes down to such a simple piece of hardware and the ability to get slower cards for less - price does become a big factor. I wouldn`t pay a hundred some odd dollars for the exceptional speed but I might be willing to pay a little more for the performance - the balance here comes to the individual. The $69.99 price tag, to me, actually doesn`t seem that bad; for the performance it`s a pretty good deal. If you`ve got the camera to take high resolution, high quality video, you want this."

SSD NEWS: Micron C400 256GB 6Gbps mSATA SSD Review - Crucial M4 mSATA SSD in Disguise
     Fri, Aug 03 2012 | 9:15A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If there was one thing we wouldn`t have predicted, it was the rush of computer enthusiasts lining up to be the first to have what amounts to be the smallest and most powerful consumer storage medium available. For the most part, we have Lenovo to thank for that as millions of Thinkpad owners played a key role in mSATA SSDs flying off the shelves quicker than they could restock. Industry has responded well, however, as mSATA becomes the new `SSD Du Jours` for the new ultra crowd. Our report today is going to be our second of the Micron C400 family, the first being the C400 128GB capacity with today`s being what will soon be the industry standard ultrabook size of 256GB. For those wondering about similarities between the Micron C400 and the newly released Crucial M4 SATA 3 SSD, they are twins. Crucial handles the consumer side of things while Micron deals with the OEM and enterprise world; the sole difference between the two seems to be exterior branding sticker only."

Repeat after me: "Unboxing's are lame"
     Thu, Aug 02 2012 | 3:59P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are many challenges with running a hardware review website in 2012, but if it's at all possible we'd like to nip the current tend of "UNBOXING'S" in the bud.

PCSTATS' opinion is that "Unboxing's" are a bloody cheap excuse for content within the Computer Hardware Review Industry. Lacking any critical testing or evaluation, these items do have their place in the world on websites that sell PC gear.

Feel free to drop us a line and tell us your thoughts on the whole 'unboxing' trend, good or bad.

Along with these features is the ability to organize the cables neatly using the cable routing holes and tie downs on the motherboard tray.///"

TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 8-port 10/100Mbps Desktop PoE switch Review
     Thu, Aug 02 2012 | 11:59A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roughly two weeks ago we reviewed an 8 port 10/100Mbps PoE switch by TRENDnet, the TPE-S44 which is basically the ideal solution for people who want a cost-effective switch with the ability to power their IP Cameras via power over Ethernet. Now although there aren`t that many people out there who actually care about such products (or at least i didn`t think so) i was surprised to receive quite a few emails by many of you asking for more similar reviews and so naturally i started searching for PoE compatible switches that wouldn`t empty your wallet. The first of those is the TL-SF1008P 8-port 10/100Mbps Desktop PoE switch by TP-Link."

This is especially true of most products as being in the middle usually means people will overlook it for a better product. I personally love the middle since a hand full of those items are under rated and more budget friendly than top tier products. The MSI R7770 PE1GD5 is a graphics card stuck in the middle of a large selection of these other items. So lets take a good look at why this one stands out more than the others. *"
