Seagate 750GB Momentus XT Solid State Hybrid Drive Review
     Fri, Jan 06 2012 | 2:48P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On the PCSTATS test bench today is a unique 2nd Gen. Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD) from Seagate called the Momentus XT. This hybrid drive doesn't run on Hydrogen, but rather combines 8GB of SSD-grade SLC NAND flash with a standard 750GB two-platter 7200RPM notebook HDD. Looking no different than any common 2.5" notebook hard drive, the trick up the Momentus XT's sleeve that it learns what data you frequently use and caches this to its 8GB of internal flash memory."

IcyDock MB994SP-4S Four-bay 2.5-inch SATA/SAS Hard Drive Rack Review
     Fri, Jan 06 2012 | 2:18P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Unless you have a swanky PC case, it's usually not very easy to install a couple 2.5" notebook-sized hard drives into a desktop computer system.... until now. Instead of slap-hazzard approaches and cheap brackets, consider a hard drive rack that squeezes several small 2.5" drives into one single 5.25" bay slot. The IcyDock MB994SP-4S is just such a unit - it packs four 2.5" HDD/SSD drives into the space of a single 5.25" DVD drive and provides unified power and supported SATA hook ups at the rear."

Tech Tip: Enable Concurrent Desktop Sessions in Windows
     Fri, Jan 06 2012 | 1:30P | Tips | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Remote Desktop in server editions of Windows by default supports two concurrent connections to remotely troubleshoot or administer a computer. However, there are a few reasons why concurrent sessions would come in handy for power users not necessarily running a server. For example, if you have a dedicated Media Center PC running in the living room, you'll be able to remotely access all files on the machine without interrupting the person watching TV. Or if you are sharing a computer with other users, concurrent Remote Desktop sessions will allow more than one person use that system under a different or even the same user account, without kicking each other off.

Mid-Tower Case Round-Up: Antec, Corsair, NZXT, Thermaltake
     Fri, Jan 06 2012 | 1:29P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s been a while since our last case roundup--a long while, actually--so it’s high time we did another. We take a look at a slew of (mostly) mid tower cases on the following pages, including the Antec Eleven Hundred, the Corsair Carbide 400R and 500R, the NZXT Source 220, and Thermaltake Chaser MK-I, each designed for a slightly different consumer. Every case in this roundup has strengths, weaknesses, and features that the others may not have, although each also has its own value proposition. If a case is flashy and feature-laden, in general, it will come with a higher price tag as well. If it’s more stripped-down, it'll generally costs less. If a case is targeted as an attention getter, it should do so with swagger, but if it’s trying to keep a low profile, in turn it should deliver that with stealthy class...

GeIL Evo Corsa 8GB 2133CL9 Dual Channel Kit Review
     Fri, Jan 06 2012 | 1:27P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the last few months the major hardware spotlights where briefly focused on AMD's Zambezi platform and now more and more on Intels high end Sandy Bridge E platform. Though let us not forget what Intel refers to as the mainstream platform aka socket 1155 Sandy Bridge goodness. The brand new E version requires quad channel action, it's little brethren only in need of dual channel. Todays GeIL dual channel 8Gb kit, comprises for you wiz kids out of two 4Gb dimms at 2133Mhz rated speeds. No cutbacks on timings : CL9-11-9-27 is pretty good stuff. Usually we see high quantity kits running at low speeds (1600ish Mhz) On top of that usually coincides with sluggish timings too. For those that are a bit confused by the brand name : GeIL stands for Golden Emperor International Limited, nothing more and nothing less. Pretty sure most were thinking of something else. Let's open up the kit and see what we can do with this high end 8Gb kit.

500 Mbps homeplug Ethernet review
     Fri, Jan 06 2012 | 1:27P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sitecom Powerline Ethernet adapters allow you to use your mains electricity circuit to transfer data, this way you can extend your network to wherever you have a free plug socket. The product we test today comes from Sitecom, their 500 Mbps plus Homeplug. The kit provides a connection of up to 500Mbits/sec. Divide that by 8 bits and you'd in theory would be able to see transfer speeds of 62.5 Megabyte per second. In practice, however we tested the maximum net data rate is much MUCH lower, 60~100 Mbits/sec - still that is faster than Wi-Fi and sufficient enough or streaming high-definition video from say your PC with network shares to, for instance, your HTPC.

Posted by: STAFF
"Apple will ship the so-called "iPad 3" with a full HD display in March, featureing a QXGA (1,536x2,048 pixels) display and longer battery life. Digitimes reports Apple will take the advantage of the iPad 3 launch to slash the price of its iPad 2 to US$399.

The segment will heat up in the second quarter of 2012 as Google reportedly may launch a tablet PC in April, competing with Kindle Fire in the entry-level segment, noted the sources.

But a true battle for market share will arrive in the second half of the year when Apple ships its iPad 4 in October, about the time when Microsoft releases its Window 8
