Fujifilm FinePix HS50 EXR Review
     Thu, Aug 01 2013 | 9:03A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Camera buyer’s today have their task cut out for them. Do I buy a simple compact or DSLR, Point and Shoot and what is a mirrorless camera anyway? The options and selection available simply can’t be rivaled so we thought we might tackle a camera review this morning that takes three of the most important features to be found in a camera purchase today, value, simplicity and absolutely incredible pictures. We found that in the new Fujifilm Finepix HS50 EXR Point and Shoot Camera and had a blast taking this camera along with us to the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory along our journey.

8GB ADATA XPG V2 DDR3 2400 Memory Review @ RWLabs
     Thu, Aug 01 2013 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA went all out when designing their XPG V2 memory. They used extremely high quality ICs, an efficient and sleek looking heatspreader and the build quality is top notch. All of this attention to detail allowed the memory to perform excellent at the default frequency, but it also gives this kit overclocking headroom that puts most memory kits to shame.

QNAP TS-469L Network Attached Storage Device Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Aug 01 2013 | 8:30A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NAS devices have come a long way in the past several years. What used to be a bunch of hard drives plugged into a motherboardwith an Ethernet NIC and a power port, running a stripped down Linux kernel with a few fileshare services running has expanded to these comparative monstrosities with connectivity galore: USB ports, eSATA ports, multiple NICs, and now HDMI. A NAS isnt so much a NAS any longer: its a multimedia computer not just suited for the office closet, but for the living room, as well. The QNAP TS-469L, combined with QTS 4.0.1, wants to be in your living room. It wants to be your multimedia machine, storing the things you want to see on your television, be those things cast from your laptop, HTPC, or streaming device, or shown directly from the device itself. In this review, well go into light depth on many of the features of the QNAP TS-469L, but also QTS 4.0.1, as this is the first QNAP product review weve done since the overhauled firmware was released several weeks ago."

Corsair Carbide 300R Mid-Tower Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Jul 31 2013 | 4:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At first glance, I really liked the simple appearance of the Corsair Carbide 300R case. The sleek flat black finish is always a winner in my books. On the front, Corsair added some extra design elements which were very welcome. These elements included things like the hex screw heads and the recessed mesh in front of the intake fan. The location of the I/O connectors, at the very top of the face, were definitely placed properly for those who place their computer on the ground or low..."

Silicon Power Velox V55 240GB SSD
     Wed, Jul 31 2013 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Judging by all the SSDs I’ve used and reviewed during the past 5 years or so it's really safe to say that currently in the market we have three types of models, the majority that focus mostly on performance, some that focus in reliability and finally a few ones that try to combine the best of both worlds and offer the best performance/reliability ratio possible. This of course is directly tied to the type of controller used and as many of you know the most popular controllers used by most manufacturers are manufactured by LSI SandForce and Marvell with Indillinx and Samsung ones currently used only in OCZ and Samsung SSD models. Controllers manufactured by these companies are probably used in 99% of all the SSD models out in the market however that doesn't mean that there aren't any other capable controller manufacturers and so today we will be taking a closer look at an SSD model based on a controller by one of the less-known manufacturers the Silicon Power Velox V55 240GB SATA III SSD.

Ozone Oxygen Headset
     Wed, Jul 31 2013 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Ozone Oxygen Headset is a unique product in that they're in-ear. Most other pro gaming headsets are the traditional kind, which are much bulkier. So these are perfect for LAN parties or if you need something compact. Considering their size these offer excellent sound and a quality mic. Also, the overall build quality and design is excellent." ~3dGameMan.com

ASUS Maximus VI Formula Review @ Ocaholic
     Wed, Jul 31 2013 | 1:19P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Maximus VI Formula, ASUS actually surprised us. We really didn`t expect to see an Armor, like you get it with the Sabertooth boards, coming with an ROG board. The final product therefore has some very characteristic looks. Furthermore you get an armada of features, which should make this board appealing to overclockers, modder, enthusiasts as well obviously as gamers."

Netgear ProSafe XS708E review: 10 Gbit switch
     Wed, Jul 31 2013 | 12:03P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having a gigabit network connection at home makes it possible to transfer your files very fast, for example to and from a NAS device. While WiFi is of course much more in the news in recent years, the development surrounding wired connections hasn't been standing still. You can buy switches that offer a full-duplex bandwidth that's 10 times faster than gigabit. While the new standard has been around for a while now, the Netgear ProSafe XS708E is one of the first 10 Gbit switches that can be called relatively affordable.
