OCZ Vector 150 SSD Review
     Sat, Nov 23 2013 | 4:34P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just as technology enjoys an ongoing evolution, OCZ Technology improves upon their design with each new solid state drive series. High-performance hardware enthusiasts were recently offered the Vertex 450 to replace the aging Vertex 4, and now mainstream enthusiasts have the Vector 150 to replace the end-of-life Vector SSD. Featuring an Indilinx Barefoot 3 BF3-M00 controller that supports 19nm Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash components by Toshiba with secure AES-256 data encryption and Trim support, Vector 150 is good for 550 MB/s read and 530 MB/s write speeds over a SATA 6-Gb/s connection. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the 240GB OCZ Vector 150 SSD, model VTR150-25SAT3-240G, against the leading competition."

Seagate Business Storage 8-Bay Rackmount NAS review: 8 disks
     Sat, Nov 23 2013 | 4:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Seagate Business Storage 8-bay Rackmount is a good option if you need lots of storage in a very compact unit. Seagate managed to fit eight disks in a 1U rack module. The performance is good, and you can increase the write speed by using both network ports. We like the firmware, it's very well-organised and includes all the main features you need in a NAS.

Seagate Backup Plus USB 3.0 4TB External Drive Review
     Sat, Nov 23 2013 | 4:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ok, I was having an urgent issue with my faithful Windows Home Media Server becoming cranky. I needed something to back up to quick. Being that I take a LOT of pictures, I needed something large. Luckily my local electronics shop had a 4TB Seagate Backup Plus for about $170 on hand. 4 TB, 2 year warranty, USB 3.0 and about $40 more than a comparable 3 TB-- what's not to like? So I grabbed it, brought it home, ripped open the box and proceeded to save my digital @**. I liked it enough that I thought it deserved digging into a bit deeper. "

Benchmarking Amazons New EC2 C3 Instance Types
     Sat, Nov 23 2013 | 3:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD unveiled the Radeon R9 290 graphics card at the beginning of November as one step down from the new flagship Radeon R9 290X graphics card. Numerous Windows reviews praised the graphics card for its great performance, but what wasn`t clear at the time was how the Linux performance and compatibility was for this new $399 USD graphics card. AMD hadn`t offered any review samples to Phoronix for conducting any Linux-based testing and benchmarking, but it`s more clear now why that didn`t happen: the Linux performance isn`t stellar. I bought an XFX Radeon R9 290 and now there`s many Linux benchmarks coming out of this graphics card that`s riddled by what might be driver issues. I already regret having purchased the AMD Radeon R9 290 for use on Linux; the graphics card is hot, power hungry, noisy, and the OpenGL results aren`t too good."

TDK TREK A26 Ultra-Portable Wireless Speaker
     Sat, Nov 23 2013 | 12:45P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are literally just a few weeks away from Christmas and since all of us here happen to consider that season as the best and most cheerful time of the year weve decided to spend a weekend on the mountain away from technology and more specifically computers and TV. Personally i like the idea since i do need some time off to relax but Im not about to leave here entirely unprepared and so because of that for the past 2 weeks we`ve been doing our best to get our hands on as many portable devices as possible that can help us enjoy our time there while at the same time making us feel safer. TDK has been in the business of designing and manufacturing high performance wireless speaker systems for quite some time now but until just recently they didn`t offer something really tiny in their product line. It seems however that TDK listens to their consumer base and so the latest TREK A26 Ultra-Portable Wireless Speaker is here to change that."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 GHz Edition Review @ Ocaholic
     Sat, Nov 23 2013 | 10:17A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the arrival of the new and more efficient B1 revision of the 28nm GK110 GPU, some Nvidia add-in-card (AIC) partners, like Gigabyte, have decided to come up with a completely new SKU, while some will simply silently replace the old A1 revision. Gigabyte`s new GTX 780 GHz Edition will not only feature the new GK110-300-B1 chip, but also bring a couple of other enhancements that should make it one of the best and among the fastest GTX 780 graphics cards on the market."

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.
