iStarUSA BPN-2535DE-SA and BPU-124DE-SS HDD Docks @ Pro-Clockers
     Sat, Nov 16 2013 | 6:59A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The two products from them that will we will be taking a look at are the BPN-2535DE and the BPU-124DE-SS. Both are backplanes that will fit in either a 3.5 or 5.25 bay depending on the model that best fits your needs. Also, they each share the ability to house multiple 2.5 drives. For most average computer users today, these products are ideal for if you have problems with having lack of support for internal drives in your chassis. Getting either the BPN-2535DE or the BPU-124DE-SS will be a wiser solution than buying a larger chassis which would likely cost you more. Now, read on to check the differences of the two to determine the best for your need."

NuForce S3-BT High-Fidelity Bluetooth Speakers
     Fri, Nov 15 2013 | 4:34P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the past 2 years or so we used and tested many portable Bluetooth wireless speakers some of which offered a very good size/performance ratio while others were not really as portable but offered amazing amounts of volume at reasonable prices. Still all these are not called portable without reason and so no matter how we see it in the end they can`t go up against a good stereo desktop solution especially when it comes to volume levels. However it`s not very easy to find a high quality stereo desktop system featuring both Bluetooth and wired connectivity that doesn`t really cost an arm and a leg so with that in mind we set out to see what`s available in the market. The answer came from our friends over at NuForce who`ve been manufacturing a very successful pair of speakers for quite some time now the S3-BT High-fidelity Bluetooth speakers for audiophiles so it didn`t take long for us to grab a sample in order to find out the reason behind their popularity."
