iStarUSA BPN-2535DE-SA SATA 6Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage
     Tue, Dec 10 2013 | 11:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the things Ive noticed over the years is that as time goes by consumer products get closer and closer to enterprise grade products both in terms of performance and reliability in an effort to cater the needs of professionals and enthusiasts alike. Certainly pure enterprise grade products will never have something to fear from high end consumer products since in the end we are talking about two entirely different markets with massively different price ranges but the gap between them is simply not what it was a decade ago. That combined with the continuous price drops on electronics in general are more than enough even for casual users to turn towards solutions that up until recently were primarily aimed towards professionals and enterprise users. Amongst such products are internal hot-swap drive cages and since 2.5 drives gain ground over their larger 3.5 brothers today we will be taking a look at the BPN-2535DE-SA 3.5 to 2x2.5 SATA 6Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage by"

Battlefield 4 Review (PC) @ Vortez
     Tue, Dec 10 2013 | 9:36A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The twelfth instalment of the Battlefield series, Battlefield 4 still uses the winning multiplayer formula of its predecessors, and why shouldn`t it? It`s what`s made the series so popular in the first place and is what makes it stand out from the others. However, a single player campaign has also been added that continues on from the events of Battlefield 3`s campaign."

ioSwitch Raijin M.2 NGFF PCIe SSD Review
     Mon, Dec 09 2013 | 11:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The advent of M.2 SSDs holds the promise of eliminating the SATA bottleneck and, while it may not seem that big of a deal for the typical consumer, improved performance to a media professional is pure gold. Faster transfer speeds translate into quicker job completion which realizes increased business and higher revenue. Although we have had M.2 SSDs in hand for some time now, the thrill of the chase is always there when watching to see who will get such and such a product to market, and into consumer hands first. When it comes to M.2 SSDs, short of those of us having the ioSwitch Raijin in hand, nobody would ever have guessed"

ASUS Radeon R9 270 DirectCU II OC Review @ ocaholic
     Mon, Dec 09 2013 | 9:36A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we have a chance to check out the new ASUS Radeon R9 270 DC2OC graphics cards that is a part of ASUS` Radeon R9 line-up and features fully custom design, on both the PCB and the cooler. ASUS decided to use its own DirectCU II cooler that we had a chance to see on some ASUS graphics cards earlier. With a slight factory overclock and full custom design, we definitely wanted to see how it will perform against its big sister the Radeon R9 270X DirectCU II OC and the now retired Radeon HD 7870 DirectCU II Top V2."

WD Black 2 Dual Drive @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Dec 09 2013 | 9:15A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I dont know about you, but when I build a new PC I basically plan for an SSD for my operating system and then a second drive or more for my Steam and other files. This has been fairly consistent in my builds from the Fridge with its double SSDs and double spinning drives all the way to the most recent lunchbox 3 with its SSD and hard drive. I even do the same thing on my gaming laptop. Sadly, there are a lot of people who just cant do this with their laptops do to only having one drive space. Western Digital surprised us late last week with a game changing drive that has that situation in mind without going with a hybrid setup. That drive is their new WD Black 2 Dual Drive, a single drive that houses a 120GB SSD and a 1TB hard drive."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti vs AMD Radeon R9 290X at 4K Ultra HD @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Dec 09 2013 | 5:33A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We often get asked by readers what the best video card is for gaming on a single 4K display or an NVIDIA Surround or AMD Eyefinity multi-display setup. We addressed this question in October with a look at the just released AMD Radeon R9 290X versus the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 on our Sharp PN-K321 32? 4K Ultra HD Monitor at 3840 x 2160.  A ton has changed over the past two months as both NVIDIA launched their new flagship card, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti, and both AMD and NVIDIA have released new drivers that help improve gaming performance."

Fractal Design Tesla R2 650W Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews

Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design is a Swedish company which started off as a computer case designer and manufacturer. Like most such companies, after they have established a foothold in their original segment of the market, they began diversifying into other segments as well. Naturally, Fractal Design began their diversification towards power supply units, releasing several products, which are today divided into three series based on their 80Plus certification; Integra (Bronze), Tesla (Gold) and Newton (Platinum). The power supply which we will be reviewing today is the Tesla R2 650W. As the name suggests, this is the second revision of the Tesla series."

ViewSonic`s VX2252 costs just $150.  Normally monitors in this price range represent the bottom of the barrel...but not this time around."
