Func KB-460 Mechanical Keyboard
     Mon, Dec 16 2013 | 3:39P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Func is a company that is likely not well known by many computer enthusiasts, except for perhaps some of the diehards in the crowd. In truth, Func has been around for quite awhile, but has recently relaunched their entire product lineup, redone from the ground up, so in that sense, we’re seeing entirely new things from Func. And today we’re looking at the flagship mechanical keyboard from Func, the KB-460. A fully backlit mechanical keyboard that sports a sleek minimalist design and caters to discerning consumers who want something unique, the Func KB-460 is not to be confused with a “basic” mechanical board. Let’s delve a bit deeper and see if the KB-460 can stand out in a widening field of mechanical keyboards.”

Posted by: STAFF
An external hard drive is something that is always in my laptop bag. With smaller devices like tablets and Ultrabooks becoming more popular the hard drives inside are much smaller than what you will find in a desktop. External hard drives give you that extra storage space that you need and are usually small enough to fit in your laptop bag or backpack. Today we are checking out the DashDrive Choice HC630 500GB External Hard Drive from ADATA. This drive not only has an attractive outer-casing, but it features a high speed USB 3.0 connection for fast transfers. Read on as we take a look..."

Fractal Design ARC MINI R2 Micro-ATX Mid Tower Chassis Review @MissingRemote
     Sat, Dec 14 2013 | 4:37P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few years Fractal Design has cultivated a reputation for delivering intelligent, quiet, and well-built PC cases that do not require breaking the bank. With solid steel construction, ample storage options, and three hydraulic bearing Silent Series R2 fans (2x 120mm, 1x 140mm) included, we should expect the ARC MINI R2 Micro-ATX case to continue this tradition. However it is natural to wonder if Fractal Design can deliver the innovative features of its larger, more expensive, chassis at the smaller enclosures $99 price point. Lets find out. *"

Western Digital Black Dual Drive Review Two drives in one! @ TechwareLabs
     Sat, Dec 14 2013 | 2:53P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With prices continually falling, SSD drives are no longer a luxury for the enthusiast. There is no doubt that SSD drives have significant advantages over their spinning brethren, but pricing aside...capacity continues to be the SSD`s Achilles` heel. The current defacto solution to this conundrum is to pair your shinny SSD with a large capacity HDD. This pairing allows the user to decide how to handle their data management needs, performance or storage capacity. This works for most PC users, but in cases where design limitations prevent the use of two separate drives, the user is unfortunately forced into decision between one or the other. Will you ever be able to have your cake and eat it too?"
