Plextor M3 Pro SSD Review - XSReviews
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 1:44P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Plextor is not a name that you would have immediately associate with SSD manufacture -- they`re probably best known to old timers as a leading manufacturer of CD/DVD drives -- but they`ve been in the business a while. Unlike Intel or Samsung who have made their mark with their own brand controllers and software, Plextor has opted to go for a third party Marvell controller. These controllers are used to great effect in the popular Crucial M4, but require some special firmware to really unlock their potential. Thankfully, Plextor have opted to do just that and their earlier M3 series SSDs were some of the fastest available. With the M3 Pro, they look to offer a premium option that promises even greater performance. Let`s find out if they`re able to deliver on their word. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Posted by: STAFF
Rosewill decided to join the Platinum party with a brand new PSU series, called Fortress. All units of this line use a non-modular cabling system, probably in an effort to restrict production cost thus making them more appealing to budget oriented users."

Corsair Vengeance Lineup Part two Mice @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 11:52A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week I took a look at the K60 and K90 Vengeance keyboards from Corsair. I was impressed with their unique take on the mechanical keyboard. Prior to looking at their keyboards I also took a look at the Vengeance 2000 wireless headset. To round out our coverage we of course need to check out Corsairs Vengeance gaming mice. We know that Corsair always takes a different path with any product they introduce and I am excited to see what they did differently in the gaming mouse market, a market that has become fairly stagnant with higher DPI, more buttons, and more lighting be the focus from most manufactures."

Silverstone Fortress FT03 Mini @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 11:21A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone has taken the already compact FT03 and successfully shrunk it to fit a Mini-ITX board, while still allowing for long graphics cards to be used. Has Silverstone managed to find the perfect balance between compact dimensions and compatibility, or does the shrink go too far?"

Giada A51 Ultra Mini PC @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 10:30A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One device we did not mention is the computer. A PC is the most cost effective way of connecting to the TV and not only being able to display your pictures, stream your videos and listen to your music but after you have done all that you can browse the internet maybe even play a game or two. And with a PC being as small or mini as they are they flow with all of the other components that make up your media theatre system without being the center of the setup. We have seen a few mini systems come across our table. They mostly have come from Sapphire and Asrock and we have seen them both preform a"

Incipio Macbook Pro 13 Honu and Selvage Laptop Sleeves @ Techreaction.net
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 9:39A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have more good-looking products from Incipio. They sent over two different sleeves for our 13 MBP, MacBook Pro. First we have the gray 13 Honu sleeve, then we have the 13 Selvage denim sleeve. These are not as much savers as they are protectors, which we will make clearer later in the review. The sleeves should be a perfect fit around our 13 MBP leaving little excess room. This is supposed to keep the weight down on the actual sleeve to make using them an option without breaking your back. Now, lets move on and get into the nitty-gritty review of these sleeves!"

[DreamWare Computers] Silverstone RL01 Mid-Tower Case
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 9:37A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In recent years, Silverstone has started to enter the entry level case market with a few great offerings. This includes lower priced cases made from lower quality materials, but that still look undeniably like a Silverstone case and re-use many great features often only found on their high end models. Looking to expand beyond just their Precision series budget line, Silverstone has recently debuted the Redline series. The debut case in this series, the RL01, has impressive looks for a case with a sub-$60 price tag. Having vast experience with a large number of Silverstone cases, I`m anxious to see how the new Redline case will stack up against the rest!"

Apple OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 9:05A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At first glance, Mountain Lion looks like an identical twin of its predecessor, OS X Lion. Upgraders from Lion will face an almost flat learning curve, because almost every feature they`ve learned to use works in almost exactly the same way as before. But Mountain Lion unobtrusively slots in dozens of new featuresApple counts two hundred of themthat enhance sharing, messaging, cloud-based synchronization, security, Web browsing, instant notifications, and accessibility."

AZZA Genesis 9000 White Full Tower Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AZZA Genesis 9000 is a full tower case with features an enthusiast would appreciate. The AZZA Genesis 9000 in white has a beautiful painted finish on the exterior and interior of the case. The designers did a great job designing an attractive case, while filling it with functionality. The case features include the ability to mount dual power supply units in the front and rear or a single PSU in either location. Plenty of room is included for storage devices, with a total nine bays and two include the ability to easily swap hard drives. Along with some unique features such as the ability to mount hardware in reverse ATX or the standard ATX form factor.///"

SSD NEWS: TCS Proteus Plus 256GB Military/Industrial Ruggedized SSD Review
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we`re once again forging a trail off the mainstream with a something a little more unusual than our normal fare. We have another military and industrial SSD from Telecommunication Systems (TCS) in house, and we can`t wait to scope it out. Mission Critical Application is any application in which failure of the Product could result, directly or indirectly, in personal injury or death. - From a Product Brief Disclaimer There are several ways to describe the meaning of mission critical. One major player defines it as the above for legal reasons - i.e. if a product fails in a mission critical application, please don`t sue us. But really, a mission critical application is simply a situation where a component must work. A scenario in which failure of one component - say, an SSD - will result in especially bad things happening, not necessarily just annoying or time consuming. This is the reason TCS`s line of hardened, ruggedized solid state drives exist. There are deployments in which the SSD`s flawless operation in difficult environments is required, along with the security features to prevent data being recovered by antagonistic or unauthorized parties."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
