Incipio Macbook Pro 13 Honu and Selvage Laptop Sleeves @ Techreaction.net
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 9:39A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have more good-looking products from Incipio. They sent over two different sleeves for our 13 MBP, MacBook Pro. First we have the gray 13 Honu sleeve, then we have the 13 Selvage denim sleeve. These are not as much savers as they are protectors, which we will make clearer later in the review. The sleeves should be a perfect fit around our 13 MBP leaving little excess room. This is supposed to keep the weight down on the actual sleeve to make using them an option without breaking your back. Now, lets move on and get into the nitty-gritty review of these sleeves!"

[DreamWare Computers] Silverstone RL01 Mid-Tower Case
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 9:37A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In recent years, Silverstone has started to enter the entry level case market with a few great offerings. This includes lower priced cases made from lower quality materials, but that still look undeniably like a Silverstone case and re-use many great features often only found on their high end models. Looking to expand beyond just their Precision series budget line, Silverstone has recently debuted the Redline series. The debut case in this series, the RL01, has impressive looks for a case with a sub-$60 price tag. Having vast experience with a large number of Silverstone cases, I`m anxious to see how the new Redline case will stack up against the rest!"

Apple OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 9:05A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At first glance, Mountain Lion looks like an identical twin of its predecessor, OS X Lion. Upgraders from Lion will face an almost flat learning curve, because almost every feature they`ve learned to use works in almost exactly the same way as before. But Mountain Lion unobtrusively slots in dozens of new featuresApple counts two hundred of themthat enhance sharing, messaging, cloud-based synchronization, security, Web browsing, instant notifications, and accessibility."

     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AZZA Genesis 9000 is a full tower case with features an enthusiast would appreciate. The AZZA Genesis 9000 in white has a beautiful painted finish on the exterior and interior of the case. The designers did a great job designing an attractive case, while filling it with functionality. The case features include the ability to mount dual power supply units in the front and rear or a single PSU in either location. Plenty of room is included for storage devices, with a total nine bays and two include the ability to easily swap hard drives. Along with some unique features such as the ability to mount hardware in reverse ATX or the standard ATX form factor.///"

SSD NEWS: TCS Proteus Plus 256GB Military/Industrial Ruggedized SSD Review
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we`re once again forging a trail off the mainstream with a something a little more unusual than our normal fare. We have another military and industrial SSD from Telecommunication Systems (TCS) in house, and we can`t wait to scope it out. Mission Critical Application is any application in which failure of the Product could result, directly or indirectly, in personal injury or death. - From a Product Brief Disclaimer There are several ways to describe the meaning of mission critical. One major player defines it as the above for legal reasons - i.e. if a product fails in a mission critical application, please don`t sue us. But really, a mission critical application is simply a situation where a component must work. A scenario in which failure of one component - say, an SSD - will result in especially bad things happening, not necessarily just annoying or time consuming. This is the reason TCS`s line of hardened, ruggedized solid state drives exist. There are deployments in which the SSD`s flawless operation in difficult environments is required, along with the security features to prevent data being recovered by antagonistic or unauthorized parties."

Mushkin 997070 16GB & 994071 32GB Redline Memory Review
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 1:21A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking at these two kits of memory from Mushkin shows that it has another pair of kits that deliver performance indicative of their specifications and more. First up are the distinctive good looks and functionality of the cooling solutions employed on each kit. The 32GB kit part number 994071 uses the Ridgeback design. This robust heatsink package uses a series of angle shaped (think Mushkin logo) fins on top of a thick body to effectively wick away the thermal load generated by these high density modules. Packing them into a four DIMM configuration like used in the testing will allow a higher heat load to be retained but is nothing to be concerned about. Using an air cooled CPU cooling solution would fix that issue as once air starts moving over the modules they cool down fast."
