Rise Of The Phablet Is A Bigger Smartphone Better? @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 10:19A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First off, can we all agree that Phablet is a terrible name? A Smartphone with a big screen does not make a tablet. Second, lets examine what exactly a Phablet is. The difference between a large phone and a small tablet is that a small tablet will run (at least in theory) tablet optimized applications, whereas the large phone is stuck with phone apps. The question is how big is too big for a phone?"

Roku 3 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 10:06A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roku is a pioneer in video-streaming media hubs, but as Apple TV became popular, and HDTVs and Blu-ray players began supporting Netflix and other online services, Roku boxes started to look less unique and less useful. The latest box, the Roku 3 changes that. What`s new? More power, a streamlined interface, an invaluable cross-service search feature, and a remote-mounted headphone jack."

NETGEAR ProSafe GS110T Gigabit SmartSwitch @ Benchmark Reviews
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 9:19A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until recently, there were only two types of network switches, un-managed and managed. Today, there is a new class, called Smart Switches. A blend of the two previous extremes, they`re targeted to both corporate users and what the industry politely calls ProSumers. Switches aren`t reviewed by the press that often, but they are a necessary part of many home and SMB networks, so we need to look at what`s available now and then. NETGEAR is a major player in the networking market, and today Benchmark Reviews looks at the GS110T, one of the less expensive offerings in their ProSafe SmartSwitch line. It`s got enough GbE ports to future-proof most home installations, plus two fiber optic interfaces..."

QNAP TS-469L High-performance 4-bay NAS Server for Home & SOHO Review @ Madshrimps
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 9:16A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TS-469L is another powerful NAS from QNAP aimed at home and small business users, equipped with a HDMI interface that can be connected to our Full-HD TV. Thanks to its HD Station function and its modules, we can transform the server into a fully-featured media center for browsing the web, playing media content with XBMC or even for navigating through the Turbo NAS OS interface, without the need of using a PC. As extra bundle, we can acquire separately the useful QNAP Media Center remote or extra RAM for a total of 3GB."

Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard @LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 9:05A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to gaming keyboards there really are only a few names that the average person will name off. The first one will most likely be Logitech, because not only have they been around forever, but also if you havent owned a G15 at some point then chances are one of your close friends has. They really did set the golden standard for a long time in gaming focused keyboards. The thing is recently a lot more people have been interested in mechanical keyboards and Logitech took their time bringing their first one out. Now that the G710+ is out, Im excited to see how it performs. Was it worth the wait? There is only one way to find out."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Futurelooks Checks Out The 2013 BCIT Student Association Spring LAN Party (Video)
     Sun, Mar 24 2013 | 3:50P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the coolest things that Futurelooks does is go out and support events that show great potential to be more than they are today. Over the past year, weve gone out and supported the BCIT Student Association (BCITSA) LAN Party at the BCIT Burnaby Campus in Canada, first in Spring of 2012 and again in the Fall of 2012. Weve seen it grow from about 80 people to 100 people to completely sold out at 150 people at this latest event, in just one short year. *"

SSD News: KingFast F3 Series mSATA 3.0 SSD Review (120GB)
     Sun, Mar 24 2013 | 12:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If someone would have suggested that mSATA SSD sales would overtake that of notebook form factor SSDs a few years ago, SSD manufacturers would have told them they were nuts. After all, the typical notebook size SSD could replace any hard drive, yet mSATA SSD use was extremely limited, to say the least. The ultrabook was just becoming a vision and, for the most part, the mSATA SSD was limited to Lenovo Thinkpad owners. Our SSD analysis today is going to examine the KingFast F3 Series 120GB mSATA SSD, an SSD manufactured by a company that doesn`t have a strong North American presence, yet still speaks to 50,000 SSD sales per month."

SSD: Micron RealSSD P400m Enterprise SSD Review - Great Consistency and Endurance
     Sun, Mar 24 2013 | 11:54A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The days when an SSD company could take a basic ASIC design and couple it with MLC are long gone. To be competitive in the current enterprise SSD market, your company must innovate. Over the past few months, we have observed innovation happening on two fronts: ASIC design and NAND technology. Each area presents highly complex problems, which in some cases, have been relatively ignored. Certain companies are well positioned to solve these problems. Companies that produce their own NAND and ASICs have a high level of understanding of how all the pieces of an SSD integrate into a single product. They are able to push the boundaries of how the NAND and ASICs interact and squeeze every bit of performance out of the individual components. Micron happens to be one of these companies and Micron P400m is a shining example of what can be accomplished."

Silverstone Raven 3 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Mar 24 2013 | 10:20A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have taken a look at a whole collection of unique case designs in the past with two standing out more than the others. The Silverstone Fortress FT01 and the Silverstone Raven. Both stood out because of their 90 degree rotated motherboard design that works so well for cooling. Although no one else been making cases with the motherboard oriented that way, Silverstone is still working on perfecting the design now with their Raven 3. We loved the previous versions so I have high hopes for the Raven 3 . Lets take a look to see what is new and how it performs."

PQI Tiffany USB 3.0 32 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sun, Mar 24 2013 | 10:19A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking for a compact flash drive that is robust enough to go on your key chain while still offering the benefit of a USB 3.0 interface, the PQI Tiffany is certainly a good candidate on paper. We take the unit for a spin to see if it can combine the best of both worlds: shape, size and speed."

NZXT Phantom 630 Computer Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sun, Mar 24 2013 | 9:16A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some of the first reviews I wrote for Benchmark Reviews were for NZXT cases. Most of these were lower-end cases priced at $75 and under. Although the cases were inexpensive, I was impressed with both the quality of construction and the thought put into their design. Since then, NZXT has moved upmarket, starting with their original Phantom case, which has now become a series of its own. Just introduced is the new Phantom 630 case, the little brother of the Phantom 820 we`ve seen previously. At an MSRP of $179.99, this is a not an inexpensive case, so let`s see if it`s worth the money..."
