Silicon Power Diamond D20 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive
     Thu, Aug 08 2013 | 8:30A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`m a firm believer that no matter how much storage space one has it`s never enough at least not the way things are currently so i always like to keep quite a few TB`s of empty space around just in case. Unfortunately although 5TB 3.5 desktop hard drives are just right around the corner the small size of 2.5 HDDs has kept things slightly less impressive and so it may be quite a few years before we finally see even 4TB portable drives. However in a way the very definition of portable means that you can`t expect to have the same things on the go like you do at the comfort of your home or work so for most people even 500GB are obviously more than enough to handle their mobile storage needs. Today on our test bench we have one such portable hard drive and more specifically the latest Diamond D20 500GB USB 3.0 model by our friends over at Silicon Power."

MSI N760 Hawk review: GeForce GTX 760 for overclocking
     Wed, Aug 07 2013 | 4:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We already liked the MSI N760 TF 2GD5/OC when we tested it as part of our GeForce GTX 760 round-up. It had the right combination of price, performance and low noise levels. The slightly more expensive Hawk made an even better impression. The Hawk is just as quiet, slightly faster and more importantly, it has great overclocking potential, and the triple voltage and the measuring points are great features for overclockers.

QNAP TS-421 and TS-420
     Wed, Aug 07 2013 | 4:40P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we kick started our testing with the custom download file transfer tests this seemed to be very much the case. In fact the extra WD Red hard drives which formed a RAID5 configuration appeared to be putting the larger 4-bay models at an advantage. When moving a single large file the TS-421 was 5% faster than the TS-221, while the TS-420 crushed the TS-220 by a whopping 29% margin.

Google Nexus 7 (2013) Review
     Wed, Aug 07 2013 | 4:39P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Google made a brilliant decision last year to take the bull by the horns and deliver its own brand Android tablet to the masses. Built by ASUS to Google's specifications, the original Nexus 7 awarded a patient (and eager) audience with a stock Android experience wrapped in an affordable package that was high on value and low on feature concessions. It was precisely the kind of tablet the Android camp had been clamoring for, because for whatever reason, most third-party manufacturers were tying to push larger, overpriced slates onto an audience that simply wanted a solid tablet without paying a premium. Up until the Nexus 7 arrived, the only viable alternatives, other than cheap off-brands with questionable build quality, were Amazon's Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble's Nook Tablet, a fine pair of slates for their intended purposes, but also deeply rooted in each company's own ecosystem. A year later, Google isn't taking a breather and is once again showing the competition how to deliver an Android tablet that caters to consumer demand. The new model Nexus 7 is a worthy successor to the original, boasting an improved design both internally and externally.

Diamond Multimedia WR300NSI Wireless-N
     Wed, Aug 07 2013 | 4:39P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wireless networking has leaped from niche application to mainstream installations in a short matter of years, allowing homes and businesses to implement features like Wi-Fi Internet access and wireless multimedia file storage. The latest 300 Mb/s 802.11n (wireless-N) networks have been a big part of this transition, enabling transfer speeds similar to the cabled Gigabit Ethernet connections. This has made life more convenient, but for many installations range is still a problem. In this article Benchmark Reviews investigates the Diamond Multimedia WR300NSI Wireless Wi-Fi Range Extender. The purpose of this portable device is self-explanatory, and networking can be complicated, which is why we’ll test how well Diamond has kept it simple for the novice consumer in this article.
