AlienVibes W401 Speaker System @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 11:55A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being a headphone guy myself, when Wes told me I was being shipped some speakers, my first instinct was either a portable speaker set for laptops or mobile listening, or maybe a small set of speakers for a desktop setup. To my surprise AlienVibes sent out one of their W401 model speakers. This is part of a new larger line of speakers that AlienVibes recently released. The W401 is a full size desk speaker setup with subwoofer. After clearing off some room around my desk its time we take a look and see what these guys are capable of."

Light Virtualization Software Review and Guide: Shadow Defender
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 10:28A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to Light Virtualization very few programs perform as well as Shadow Defender. This lightweight program is easy to use, bloat-free, and light on system resources; yet it possesses the power to fully contain some of the sturdiest of malware within its buffer and fully undo the damage with just a simple reboot."

Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 Case Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 10:20A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nanoxia is releasing its second mid-tower case, the Deep Silence 2 (also known as DS2), targeted to silent computing. We`ve already reviewed the Deep Silence 1, which received our Golden Award. Let`s see if the new version also deserves our recommendation."

Benchmarking Ubuntu Linux On The Google Nexus 7
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 10:19A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month I delivered extensive benchmarks of Ubuntu Linux on the Google Nexus 10 using the recently released Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview. In that article were benchmarks from the Samsung Exynos 5 Dual (Cortex-A15) tablet against a range of ARM Cortex and Intel/AMD x86 systems. This article builds upon those earlier Ubuntu Linux x86/ARM results by now adding in the results from Ubuntu on the Google Nexus 7 plus more comparison processors have been tossed into the mix as well. This article offers Ubuntu Linux performance results for a dozen different Intel, AMD, and ARM systems. The ARM SoCs represented are from Texas Instruments OMAP, NVIDIA Tegra, and ARM Exynos families."

Intel Dishes On What Makes H.265 Worth Waiting For @ Techgage
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 9:53A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* Following-up on Januarys H.265 announcement, we had a chat with Intel to better understand some of the developments and enhancements made to the upcoming codec, compared to the venerable H.264 (AVC). Although Intel isnt the one conducting the development of H.265 (HEVC), the company has been keeping in good contact with those who are, because with the nature of its business, it pretty-well has to. We might not see on-CPU logic for H.265 anytime soon, but for Intel, the sooner things are sorted out, the better."

Fractal Design Define XL R2 Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 9:19A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many cases claim to offer a combination of style, substance, size and price but Fractal Design`s new Define XL R2 is one of the few to actually deliver on its promises. It uses a full tower form factor that offers plenty of interior space and advanced features wrapped into a neutral but striking exterior design."

SSD NEWS Kingfast F3 Plus SSD Review (240GB) - Looks Like The Real Thing
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 7:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ok so we have had a few hectic weeks since the last KingFast F3 Plus SSD was received and analyzed. In result, KingFast was nice enough to send us a new one right away. Based in Shenzhen, China, KingFast ships about 50,000 SSDs monthly when we combine enterprise, business, consumer and ohm. Our analysis today examines the F3 Plus which is yet another in the `LSI SandForce Driven` family. We are all too aware of the performance that should be expected."

REVIEW: BeQuiet! Dark Power Pro 10 750W @ PureOverclock
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BeQuiet! has an established reputation in the power supply market for those living in Europe, but the company isn`t as well known in North America. Looking to make a splash on this side of the pond with the Dark Power Pro 10 750W, the company is packing a litany of innovative features into a wonderfully sleek package for this unit. It`s got sexy styling, a modular setup, an 80Plus Gold certification, and an Overclocking Key (what?!?) that promises to literally change the power delivery inside this unit. We were certainly intrigued, so let`s take a closer look at this power supply from BeQuiet and see if it can deliver the goods to a demanding consumer market."

Xigmatek Gigas PC case
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Xigmatek Gigas PC case does not look like a standard Midi-Tower, but rather like a subwoofer in a high-quality aluminium chassis. So the enthusiast can decide to use the Xigmatek Gigas case cube made of brushed aluminium as HTPC in the living room or as stylish gaming PC. Because the case is not only very attractive, but provides also great cooling for high-end PC hardware. We examined the Xigmatek Gigas enclosure and test the practicality on the following 5 pages. Additionally, you can win this nice Aluminium case in the Longest Topic battle at our Hardware Forum.

Triple Monitor Gaming on a Budget
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Considering next-gen cards are still months away, we didn't expect to bring any more GPU reviews until the second quarter of 2013. However, we realized there was a gap in our current-gen coverage: triple-monitor gaming. In fact, it's been almost two years since we last stress tested games at resolutions of up to 7680x1600. We're going to mix things up a little this time. Instead of using each camp's ultra-pricey dual-GPU card (or the new $999 Titan), we're going to see how more affordable Crossfire and SLI setups handle triple-monitor gaming compared to today's single-GPU flagships.

Tablets of 2013: Nexus vs. Surface vs. iPad
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 4:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The tablet market doesn’t look very different than it did a year ago from the perspective of who’s doing well and who’s not. Perhaps the most exciting developments came towards the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 from the usual big guys: Google released the Nexus 10 and updated the Nexus 7, Apple launched a smaller and cheaper iPad mini, while Microsoft went all in with the Surface RT and Pro. As usual, we've compiled a comparative table with what we consider are the best options either currently available or announced so far, complete with metascores from our Product Finder engine and review links.

"Not everyone has the budget, or need, for a 4-bay NAS and so Synology offer models such as the DS213 with two bays. Today we will be reviewing that model while also taking a look at their latest software, DiskStation Manager v4.2 (March 2013 release)."

Silverstone SUGO SG09 Small Form Factor Chassis Review
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have something a little special and by that I mean it's literally little and it's special, I am of course talking about one the latest small form factor chassis' from SilverStone, the SUGO SG09. SilverStone have already proven time and time again that they are the masters of compact design. This is something we have seen in previous reviews of the SilverStone range such as the PS07 and the FT03-Mini, both of which were worthy of eTeknix awards for their unique design features, performance and build quality, all of which we hope to see in the SG09. As you can see from the specifications below, the SG09 may be small but it's capable of housing either Micro-ATX, DTX or Mini-ITX motherboards, giving it a wide range of compatible motherboards to choose from. Add to this the fact that it comes equipped with three fans as standard, support for two 3.5" hard drives, four 2.5" hard drives, a slim optical drive, large CPU coolers and long graphics cards! All of which is impressive for a chassis of this size.

Rosewill T600N Dual-Band Gigabit Router
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 4:00P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The T600N has a very strong showing and takes the wireless crown away from the TEW-691GR. While the wired performance of most of these products is within a couple of percent, the wireless performance is what is really starting to set some of these products apart. . .

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
