A Futurelooks News Flash - Rosewill Silentnight 500 Watt Power Supply Review
     Sat, Oct 12 2013 | 11:45A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Passively cooled computer components are kind of a holy grail item. Its difficult to design them in such a way that theyll operate well without failure. Especially when considering variables like climate and system application. In other words, a passively cooled computer component might operate perfectly well in the Pacific Northwest of the US, but find it a challenge to operate within tolerances in Southeast Asia. One such product that needs to be done right are power supplies. Fortunately, electrical innovation has resulted in better designs giving manufacturers like Rosewill the opportunity to provide a great product that works."

ASUS Radeon R9 280X DirectCU II TOP Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sat, Oct 12 2013 | 11:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS Radeon R9 280X DirectCU II TOP Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Today we will cover the highest specification model available at the time of writing, the R9 280X and our version is the ASUS Radeon R9 280X DirectCU 2 TOP 3GB. That is an overclocked version of the card and one of the highest specification models around. We will be comparing it to the two closest NVIDIA models (pricing wise) in the form of the GTX 760 and 770 (both OC models) as well as the part the 280X replaces, the 7970 GHZ. We are testing on the latest i7-4960X CPU, Windows 8.1 and games such as Battlefield 4, F1 2013 and Total War: Rome 2."

Corsair Force LS Series 240GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Oct 12 2013 | 10:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There have been a number of incarnations of the Force Series drives from Corsair with the first having the SandForce 1200 series controller. Hence the name. Most have been performance focused and were the Corsair flagship drives for a time, a title currently held by their Neutron GTX line. The new Force LS series is intended more as a budget friendly drive and changes things up with a Phison controller running the show that`s supported by Toshiba 19nm NAND. This isn`t a configuration we`ve tested before so it`ll be interesting to see how it fares."

Seagate Business Storage 1-Bay 3TB NAS
     Sat, Oct 12 2013 | 9:42A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are currently using a NAS server then you are definitely aware of the countless options available in the market as we speak from the low end single bay models designed for home use and up to the massive ultra-high end 24 bay models aimed at large businesses. What you may not be aware however is that no matter how good a NAS server is most if not all of these options come without any preinstalled drives in their bays and although some distributors take it upon themselves to equip them with their favorite drive models in the end the result is not what Id call a plug and play AIO solution. Seagate is amongst the very few manufacturers that actually took steps to correct this by designing their very own NAS models and pairing them with their own drives in order to simplify the entire procedure and offer consumers the easy way out. Today we will be taking a look at the base model by Seagate the Business Storage 1-Bay 3TB."

Samsung KE55S9C Curved OLED TV review
     Sat, Oct 12 2013 | 9:00A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even with the curved design, the Samsung KE55S9C is without a doubt the best TV we've ever tested. Especially the amazing viewing angles and contrast make watching a movie on this OLED TV an experience of its own. You won't find any other TV with a contrast like this, and it gives an extra sense of depth that's difficult to describe, you really have to see it with your own eyes.

Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 PC case
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 PC case does not only caught the eye by its special simplicity, but due to the large mesh surfaces on the top and the front, which have an extremely high airflow and thanks to the integrated dust filters they can be cleaned very easily as well. Fractal Design delivers the Arc R2 mid-tower PC case with an acrylic window, USB 3.0 ports, three silent 140 mm R2 fans with 3-step fan control and the case can be converted to support a dual radiator inside of the chassis. The Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 review will show if this case can convince in practice.
