Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 3 Micro-ATX Chassis Review
     Tue, Sep 27 2016 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master are back on eTeknix once again with their increasingly popular and impressive MasterCase series. Today we kick things off with the MasterCase Pro 3, the little brother to the ATX capable MasterCase Pro 5. The new chassis keeps many of the traits we already know and love about the 5, but just squeezes them down a tiny bit, possibly making the new model a little bit friendlier for the travelling LAN gamers out there.

Asrock Beebox-S
     Tue, Sep 27 2016 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For potential buyers the real selling point of the Beebox-S is the price. You might expect a Skylake-U enabled Core i5 mini PC to cost a pretty penny, especially one of this caliber. I know I did which is why the current $320 US asking price over at Newegg really shocked me. The 6100U model is also selling for just $264, another amazing bargain right there.

the FXM 100 headphones
     Mon, Sep 26 2016 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Comparing the FXM 100 headphones to recently reviewed headsets I found that these produced a deeper and more lively sound than Corsair’s $79 VOID headset with 2-channel sound - though VOID has the advantage of simulated 7.1-channel Dolby surround effects from its included USB adapter. The Logitech G633 still has the edge in overall sound (and also offers 7.1 surround effects), but even at its recently reduced price is still $30 more at $99. I think the FXM 100's $69.95 price is fair, but if the price drops at all they will be a more compelling option."

Nest Outdoor Security Camera
     Mon, Sep 26 2016 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While I've tested out various indoor WiFi-based security cameras over the past decade on Phoronix, outdoor WiFi cameras have been a different story. Either through my contacts from Phoronix or through my own personal searching, I've never found an outdoor WiFi security camera that I've liked either due to poor build quality, poor video quality / viewing angles, or other issues but most of the time has revolved around not being well-engineered. That has changed with the Nest Cam Outdoor that was announced earlier this year by the Google/Alphabet-owned company while this week it's finally begun shipping to consumers. I certainly like the Nest Cam Outdoor from a hardware perspective, but the software could still use some improvements."

Posted by: STAFF
Here's another $400 option for ultra-small PCs, this time based on Intel's 35W Skylake CPU, the Core i3-6100T. The ECS LIVA One ups the performance a notch compared to past LIVA units, but the ECS LIVA One also ups the size a fair bit.

Crucial MX300 1TB SSD Review
     Sun, Sep 25 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Three months ago Crucial announced the MX300 750GB ‘Limited Edition’ SSD to celebrate their brand new Micron 3D TLC NAND Flash memory technology. We reviewed the MX300 750GB drive and found that the Micron 3D TLC NAND along with the Marvell 88SS1074 controller and Crucial custom firmware proved to be a winning combination. Crucial has since released 275GB, 525GB, and 1050GB (1TB) and 2TB versions to join the existing MX300 750GB model, so there are now five different capacities to pick from if you want a Crucial MX300 series SSD in the 2.5-inch SATA III form factor. The unusual capacities are due to the Micron’s 3D TLC being 384Gbit when most other NAND companies are using 256Gbit technology. Read on to see how the MX300 1TB SSD performs!

Corsair Carbide Air 740 Case Review
     Sat, Sep 24 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair Carbide Air 740 is a larger version of the £125 Carbide Air 540 that is taller, wider, deeper and comes with a cosmetically different front panel. Carbide Air 740 has a hinged main door with a huge clear side window that shows off the innards of your new PC for the world to admire. Or rather, the window shows off the main chamber while the untidy clutter is hidden away in the rear compartment.
