Samsung Portable SSD T1 250GB USB 3.0 Drive Review
     Mon, May 18 2015 | 9:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If there's one thing electronics manufacturers know very well that's the difference between market segments so although for enterprise users, professionals and in some cases even enthusiasts they offer products with performance and reliability as their primary features when it comes to casual consumers the all-time classic price/performance ratio takes their place. So you'd think that the same "rule" would also apply in the storage media segment of the market right? Well that's not really the case since when it comes to USB flash drives most storage media manufacturers focus primarily in reliability and security for enterprise grade models, speed and capacity for models aimed at enthusiasts and professionals and finally price and capacity for models aimed at casual users. There are some exceptions to that rule but the one that stands-out from the crowd is the latest Samsung Portable SSD T1 which we have here with us today.

MSI Z97I Gaming AC Mini-ITX Motherboard Review
     Sun, May 17 2015 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the Intel Z97 chipset has been out for a while, that doesn’t mean that the chipset is no longer viable, systems built around the Z97 chipset and Intel socket 1150 processors will be popular for a few more years. As people are looking to build small LAN boxes or even SteamOS systems, there are many motherboards to choose from. Most have limitations on certain aspects such as overclocking, overall performance, or lack of gaming oriented features. MSI has gone to great lengths to make their Z97I Gaming AC mITX the perfect motherboard for small systems. Have they succeeded? Let’s take a look at what the Z97I Gaming AC mITX motherboard has to offer.

ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark S Limited Edition
     Sat, May 16 2015 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is not often we see limited edition motherboards, maybe one or two a year maybe. So when ASUS said they were sending me a limited edition motherboard I was quite excited. The color white in the PC enthusiast scene has become extremely popular over the past couple of years. PC case manufacturers have really adopted it with a wide variety of all white cases, there are white power supplies, even a few all-white graphics cards, but a white motherboard is something very hard to come by. ASUS is changing all of that with their Sabertooth Z97 Mark S Limited Edition Motherboard. This motherboard is part of ASUS’s TUF (The Ultimate Force) line of motherboards so it has the TUF Thermal Armor and TUF Fortifier. ASUS has changed the colors of these to arctic (white) camo to give the motherboard a truly unique look. On top of that they have actually built the motherboard on a completely white PCB. Not only is this truly unique it really makes the motherboard look amazing. Being an ASUS motherboard that is part of the TUF series it has quite a lot of features as well, let’s take a look!"

Intel NUC5i7RYH w/ i7-5557U Review
     Sat, May 16 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The NUC is an extremely small device to house an entire computer, with that said expandability is limited to some degree. This particular model has slots for you to install one 2.5” drive and one M.2 drive. Thankfully I think we all realize that we don’t need tons of storage with the faster internet speeds available to us and the numerous choices of cloud services for streaming."

But Eurocom also managed to slim the P5 Pro down compared to previous models, making it one of the slimmest, lightest desktop replacement mobile gaming machines we’ve reviewed...

Samsung SM951 M.2 PCIe SSD Review (512GB)
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 9:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In 2013 we were able to get a hold of Samsung's first go at an OEM M.2 PCIe 2.0 x4 SSD, the XP941. Once word got out about this SSD's speeds many storage enthusiasts thirsted for it. Samsung was not prepared for the consumer market to get so hyped up over it and they stopped distribution to 3rd party resellers as demand was exceeding supply. After a few long months it was finally available again and if you were big on fast storage, this small gum stick SSD was the one for you. Now, fast forward to 2015. A few weeks ago we took a look at a very fast consumer M.2 SSD, the Kingston HyperX Predator. It offers consumers great speeds as well as endurance, surpassing that of the XP941. Not only that, but it is easily bootable in almost any system. Now, it claims the title of the fastest consumer M.2 PCIe SSD out, however, it isn't the fastest M.2 option to the storage enthusiast.
