Fractal Design Define Nano S Review
     Tue, Sep 20 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design has been one of our favorite case manufactures since they jumped on the scene. Their cases have always been very high-quality, easy to build in, and offer a sleek design. Their Define Series really set the bar for a silent case that was functional. Most of the cases in the Define Series were made for ATX builds, but they recently released the Define Nano S, which is made for ITX builds. But don’t let that fool you, the case still has room inside for long graphics cards, full-size power supplies, and tall CPU coolers. Let’s jump in and see what the Define Nano S is all about!"

PCSpecialist Defiance III 17.3 Laptop Review
     Tue, Sep 20 2016 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here at KitGuru we have already seen the monster that is the Asus ROG GX800VH – featuring dual GTX 1080s. However, with the price expected to be upwards of £5000, it is out of reach for most laptop gamers. That is where the PCSpecialist Defiance III comes in. It sports a Pascal GTX 1060 GPU, quad-core i7 processor and 16GB DDR4 memory, all in an attractive chassis. At £1349, it is still an investment, but do its features make the price worthwhile?

Rivet Networks Killer E2500 Gigabit Ethernet Controller Preview
     Tue, Sep 20 2016 | 9:00A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This morning, Rivet Networks is announcing its latest Killer networking product, the Killer E2500 Gigabit Ethernet Controller. For the uninitiated, the very first Killer Networking cards were introduced way back in 2005 and were designed to maximize throughput and minimize ping times for gamers. While total throughput is often similar between network controllers today, Killer networking products reckon they can still deliver a superior experience through improved ping times and quality-of-service (QoS) prioritization...

Synology DS416play 4-bay NAS Review
     Mon, Sep 19 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
DS416play 4-bay NAS from Synology is another multimedia-oriented model, which is able to transcode 4K videos in order to play them back on many other portable devices linked to the network and this is possible thanks to the hardware transcoding engine present within the included Intel Celeron N3060 dual-core CPU. This one is paired with 1GB of DDR3 memory, which should be enough for a home server and the four bays do support HDDs with capacities up to 10TB (for a maximum of 40TB): that is a lot of storage for many 4K videos and other stuff!"

Over the years, hard disk drive manufacturers have fallen, merged, or been bought up by their rivals. Today, only three hard disk drive manufacturers remain – Western Digital, Seagate and Toshiba. Paradoxically, the reduced competition was actually good for the consumer. Find out why!

Crucial MX300 (525GB & 1050GB) Solid State Drives Review
     Sun, Sep 18 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months ago we took a look at Crucial’s MX300 Solid State Drive. This was the company’s first consumer solid state drive to make use of 3D NAND and make them the second company (behind Samsung) to offer a 3D NAND drive to consumers. By using 3D NAND Crucial is able to keep the costs of the drive lower and enable higher capacity drives. When the MX300 was initially launched Crucial only offered a 750GB version, but now the they have filled out the lineup with 275GB, 525GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities. Today we will be testing the 525GB and 1TB (1050GB) versions of the drive. They offer the same 530 MB/s sequential read and 510 MB/s sequential write speeds as the 750GB. Let’s jump in!"

Kingston Industrial Temperature MicroSD Review

Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston Industrial Temperature MicroSD card is designed specifically for harsh environments with temperature extremes, from -40C to 85C.

Toshiba OCZ VX500 SSD Review (256GB/512GB/1TB) – A New MLC Contender In The Rece
     Sat, Sep 17 2016 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ Vector has been the top performing SATA SSD from the company for the past few years. Utilizing their proprietary Indilinx controller and most recently, Toshiba's A19 NAND, they provided for strong performance for mainstream consumers as well as enthusiasts, but it did have its drawbacks in recent times. Since the release of the latest PCIe NVMe SSDs this year, however, nearly all SATA SSDs are no longer part of the enthusiast segment. When we reviewed the RD400 it was very clear that it took over that battle and left the Vector 180 to fight in the mainstream segment.

RIOTORO CR1080 Case
     Sat, Sep 17 2016 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Being the new kid on the block may cause some to lower their expectations, but RIOTORO first had a hit with the CR1280 and it does it again with the CR1080. I was quite surprised that a full-size ATX motherboard can fit in such a small, attractive case. This case has styling and function at a very reasonable price. The layout and use of space is well planned and executed. Cable management is really nice and allows for a clean, uncluttered build. There really wan't much to dislike with the CR1080. It is small, but you certainly know that going into it. No surprise that you aren't going to fit a dozen hard drives and 4-Way SLI in there. I suppose only having one case fan might be a minor issue, until you consider that the case is set up for an addtional three 120mm fans if you choose to add them. And being a small case, the extra airflow would not hurt. Overall, the CR1080 is certainly an impressive case. As for pricing, the MSRP for the CR1080 is $79.99 (on Amazon) and I think this is a fair price for what you get. Check out the RIOTORO CR1080 and see how big things can come in small packages.”
