Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT Phantom 630 is a full tower chassis that fits between the smaller 410 and larger 820 model Phantom cases. This new 630 version sports many of the same features as the flagship model, but comes in a slightly smaller size.

AIAIAI TMA-1 DJ Headphones With Mic Review
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 11:55A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a market filled with a virtually limitless number of headsets and headphones from a very large number of manufacturers that increases every day it can become extremely difficult for consumers to find just the right one suitable for their needs. Just imagine that even professionals such as DJs and studio sound engineers who require very high audio precision and clarity offered only by the best headphone/headset models also have a hard time choosing the right one for the job due to the numerous offerings available. When i first started doing consumer electronic related reviews a few years ago i did focus quite a bit on testing professional and enthusiast grade headphones/headsets to help people figure out which was the ideal one for them but for the past two years or so because of extreme workload i had to make a tough decision and so i decided to focus on reviews surrounding other more popular product lines (gaming related). Well it seems however that old habits die hard and since many of you have asked we decided to start a brand new section dedicated to professional/enthusiast grade headphones/headsets and what better way to do that than by testing the latest TMA-1 DJ Headphones with Mic by AIAIAI?"

How to Maximize Storage Space Guide
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 9:53A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I installed 8 GB more RAM in my machine, Windows swelled the pagefile to match the 12 GB of total RAM and it took all of that from the my OS drive. To keep that drive lean, I went into the Performance Settings, which is under the Advanced tab of the computer`s properties, next to the System Protection tab, and changed the settings. Like the restore points, you are able to control the amount of space allocated for the pagefile and the specific drive the pagefile is stored on. Instead of keeping it on a small SSD, it may be wise to move it over to a larger but slower HDD."

Patriot Gauntlet Node Wireless Enclosure Review
     Tue, Mar 12 2013 | 3:23P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tablets and large smartphones (some even look like tablets) have taken a very large share of the market and according to analysts that number will increase many times over in the following years. Personally i use smartphones as intended and that`s just for calls, checking my emails and surfing the web when i have no other choice and as for tablets well i don`t really like using them that much and in all likelihood that will not change until manufacturers actually make tablets powerful enough to compete with laptops. Still laptops, tablets and smartphones alike use Wi-Fi connectivity and due to the limited storage capacity of the last two (tablets/smartphones) and the increasing data storage needs it was just a matter of time before someone introduced a Wi-Fi enabled external HDD enclosure in the market (much like the Kingston Wi-Drive but quite cheaper in regards to $/GB). Well Patriot did exactly that and so today we will be testing their GAUNTLET NODE Wireless Enclosure for 2.5 HDD/SSD."
