MSI Radeon R9 270 Gaming Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Jan 05 2014 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lately we have been taking a look at a lot of Radeon R9 280X graphics cards. These are based on the Tahiti GPU that was also found in AMDs Radeon HD 7900 series cards. For those not looking to spend as much money the next step down in AMDs latest graphics cards is the R9 270X/270 series. These cards are based off the Pitcairn GPU and still offer a very good price / performance ratio. Today we are looking at MSIs Radeon R9 270 Gaming graphics card. This card will feature a factory overclock and MSIs own Twin Frozr IV cooling solution. Is this the best graphics card for under $200? We are going to find out!"

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition Tablet Review
     Sun, Jan 05 2014 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just over a year ago, Samsung broadened its Note portfolio to not only include phones, but tablets as well. The company saw a need to introduce a slate that catered to working professionals, power users, and those who need more content creation capabilities -- hence, the Galaxy Note 10.1 with the S Pen was born. In the ever-challenging world of product naming and differentiation, Samsung decided on quite the mouthful for the Note 10.1's successor. The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is perhaps awkwardly named, but it's shipping in a market where work-capable tablets are certainly generating a lot of buzz. On paper, there's no reason to doubt the Note 10.1 2014 Edition's power with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 SoC at the heart of the device. Android 4.3 is on-board and Samsung has tossed a heavy coat of its own TouchWiz interface on there in order to best take advantage of the included stylus; pardon us, S Pen...

Cooler Master N200, N300, N500 & N600 review
     Sun, Jan 05 2014 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master has a series of affordable chassis called the N series. They're supposed to cool well and are made for liquid cooling including 240 mm radiators, perhaps making them a good and affordable option for a powerful rig. We tested four N series models and compared them to 28 other chassis in the same price segment.

Seagate 600 480 GB vs. Kingston HyperX 3K 480 GB SSD Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Sat, Jan 04 2014 | 4:58P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid state drives have come down significantly in price over the last few years, so it`s now cheaper than ever to upgrade your PC. While 120/128 GiB units offer the best compromise between price and capacity in most cases, some users may opt for a 480 GiB model instead if extra storage space is required. Today, we are going to look at two of the latest 480 GiB models; the Seagate 600 and the Kingston HyperX 3K."

HGST SSD800MM SAS 12Gbps Enterprise SSD Receives Editors Choice Award Through Multi-SSD Analyses
     Sat, Jan 04 2014 | 10:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you have been following The SSD Review in 2013, you are probably familiar with our coverage of 12Gbps SAS. Throughout the year we have covered HBAs, RAID Adapters, Enclosures and SSDs. We have been incredibly busy reviewing new products, but one product in particular has stood out. In all of our 12Gbps SAS reviews we have sung the praises of the HGST SSD800MM. Since the SSD800MM was more of a means to an end when reviewing the LSI SAS 9300-8e, we never really gave it its proper due. With this update, we wanted to put this SSD into perspective after nearly a years worth of 12Gbps SAS testing."

Posted by: STAFF
Although the Synology DS214 and the DS214play are two very different products designed for different purposes, they provided similar performance. Surprisingly despite being built on entirely different platforms we ended up with almost identical results and what’s great about that is those results were very good.

NZXT Kraken G10 AIO Graphics Card Adapter
     Sat, Jan 04 2014 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“When it comes to graphic card cooling, aftermarket air coolers were the best option in the past. Also, unless you were going full water cooling, your options were pretty limited. Recently we have started to see a mass of AIO (all in one) water cooling products come to market giving users many more options for CPU cooling; however, up until now there have not been too many similar options for graphics card cooling. The new NZXT Kraken might be the answer for those who want liquid cooling but may not have the ability for a full DIY custom solution.”

WD Black 2 SSD + HDD Dual Drive Review
     Sat, Jan 04 2014 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The price disparity between solid state and hard disk drives often forces mobile and small form factor users into the unenviable position of choosing performance over capacity. Provided they've got the budget, desktop users needn't compromise, because their systems can accommodate multiple drives of different form factors without issue. But SFF, all-in-one, and mobile systems are usually outfitted with only a single 2.5" drive bay, so if you want the performance of an SSD, but need a large capacity drive, you've got to shell out big bucks for a high-capacity SSD or settle for the lower performance of a hard drive. WD recently released a totally new class of product that aims to resolve this conundrum, however. The new WD Black 2 Dual-Drive (SSD + HDD) pairs 120GB of solid state storage with a 1TB hard disk, in a single 2.5" device. The WD Black 2 is not a caching solution, though, like some other hard drives outfitted with flash memory. Rather, the WD Black 2 operates as two independent drives-a fast SSD for your OS and most commonly used apps and a large hard drive for bulk storage...

Samsung 27-inch S27C750P Desktop LCD Monitor - BCCHardware
     Sat, Jan 04 2014 | 8:59A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The build quality of the bezel and overall appearance is pretty nice. When it comes to eye-candy, Samsung knows how to make plastic look good. The stand is the piece of hardware that gets me though. While I absolutely love the location of the rear ports and how the integrated cable management works so perfectly, the fact that there is no height adjustment is a little disappointing."

The Seasonic SS-660XP2 offers some quite unique features paired up with 80PLUS Platinum certification and a high-end design, all packed together with a rather affordable US $140 price tag. Today, we will check out if Seasonic, who is also the maker of this PSU, actually lives up to its name and high standards expected from it."
