     Thu, Nov 15 2012 | 11:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Raid enclosure which we gave the `Recommended` for its support for two drives and a couple different forms of Raid. But it only supported USB 2.0 which is no longer the speed demon we need when it comes to data transfer. So, Vantec has graced us with the newest model of the device and has labeled it the 400MX-S3R. the newer version gives us the USB 3.0 speed we want and plus eSATA for versatility."

Lexar JumpDrive S73 32 GB USB 3.0 @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Nov 15 2012 | 10:12A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being a more affordable product from Lexar, we do not expect the JumpDrive S73 to break any records, but it should still deliver the benefits of USB 3.0 connectivity. While it does lack write speed, it makes up some ground in read performance."

Now there are so many devices that allow us to complete our daily tasks that it is hard and even sometimes confusing to choose a device when it is time for an upgrade or a new purchase. Intel knows this and we sat down with them to discuss some of the latest Intel-powered Ultrabooks and tablets. They not only let us get our hands on these devices but explained many of the features that are built-in on a hardware level that you will not find with a non-Intel system.

[Tech ARP] Satellite TV Going Bonkers? Blame Your DECT Phone! Rev. 2.0
     Thu, Nov 15 2012 | 8:12A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are having problems watching certain channels on your satellite TV, don`t blame your service provider just yet. It is very possible that the culprit is actually the DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) phone you recently installed. This is actually an old problem, but one that not many people realize until they install a DECT phone, or subscribe to a satellite TV service, or both. In this article, we are going to explain to you why DECT phones interfere with satellite TV services, how to determine if they are the cause, and how to fix the problem. If you find this guide useful, be sure to share it with your family and friends so they won`t get frustated at their satellite TV provider for the wrong reason. We all have plenty of other reasons to complain to them about anyway!"

Review: Corsair CX430 @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Nov 15 2012 | 2:51A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`re going to have a look at a product, which is actually not aiming at high-end or enthusiast users. But still, at a first glance it looks like Corsair did a good job with creating their CX430 power supply. It could very well be that this little fellow is a perfect companion for a BitFenix Prodigy build for example."
