Choosing the Right Projector for your Needs @ TechwareLabs.com
     Sun, Feb 09 2014 | 11:10A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To often I see this question come up online from potential buyers that really don`t know what to look for or what they need when it comes to buying a projector. Usually you start with the concept that you want a home theater or are a business user and need a projector for meetings or presentations. In the end you almost always end up asking What should I buy? This question is almost always most easily resolved by answering the question What will you use it for, and where will you be using it?"

Kingston SSDNow KC300 240GB SSD Upgrade Kit
     Sun, Feb 09 2014 | 8:31A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
2014 is finally here people and just like one of my friends says each year is a brand new 365 paged book so make sure you all write each page the best way you can. 2014 is a particularly special year since there are many things for us to look forward including the new X99 chipset based mainboards by Intel (finally something to replace our X79 system although we will keep it as well to continue with some of our databases) which will also use the brand new DDR4 RAM, new SSD/HDD hybrid models with large capacity NAND flash, new HDDs with at least 6TB capacities and of course new SSD NAND flash controllers. CES may just be 4 days away but some prototypes may actually make it there in time (if not we will probably see them in this years CeBIT) so if you live near Las Vegas i strongly recommend attending if you`d like a first row seat on everything new to come in 2014.

Raidmax Agusta Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Feb 09 2014 | 6:26A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While most of the case makers out there have gone for the more sleek and subtle design for their cases, Raidmax is always a company we can count on for some pretty extreme case designs. Today we are talking a look a look at their Agusta case. This case has a sort of transformer-like design to it, which looks awesome. On top of that it has a dual chamber design with the 3.5-inch / 2.5-inch drive trays on the bottom of the case. This not only makes room for watercooling inside the main compartment of the case but keeps the heat generated by your hard drives in a separate compartment. Other features include USB 3.0 support, six included fans and tool-less installation systems. Read on as we take a look"

Guru3D Rig of the Month - January 2014
     Sun, Feb 09 2014 | 3:59A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We kick off a new year for the Rig Of The Month. The Guru3D Rig of the Month January 2014 was made by Luciel Campbell, in the past he already won a prize and that drove him towards his latest creation, called APASF. He has made a LAN box beyond believe with a modest steam-punk style. Actually, come to think of it, it maybe a little weird to look at really but it certainly is something unusual and beautiful, his rig called APASF aka Campus Party Europe 2013 London Edition we feel is a hit in design and customization. And that makes it an awesome Rig of the Month here at Guru3D.com"

Legit Reviews is checking out the new OCZ Storage Solutions Vertex 460 SSD today!

Intel Next Unit of Computing (NUC) D54250WYKH - H is for 2.5 HDD Mount Review @MissingRemote
     Sat, Feb 08 2014 | 10:07A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel brought out their Haswell Next Unit of Computing (NUC), inclusion of features like SATA made it clear that they had bigger things in store for the little system. They were honest that some of this promise will require 3rd party case OEMs to fully realize, but Intel quickly announced that they would be creating their own chassis with 2.5 drive support a bit later. Providing this feature is interesting to two groups of users: those who have, or want to leverage a 2.5 SSD instead of mSATA or anyone who wants local, rotating, storage in the NUC. As it happens, now is the time, and when I sat down with Intel at CES to talk NUC they had one of the new 116.6mm x 112mm x 51.5mm enclosures for me to take back and run through the paces. *"

Angelbird SSD2Go Pro Mobile SSD Review (640GB)
     Sat, Feb 08 2014 | 9:56A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a bit of a personal example, we reviewed the Angelbird SSD2Go USB 3.0 External SSD last June and that SSD has since been around the world and back, and then some. Wherever my camera equipment goes, it goes. The first gen Angelbird SSD2Go wreaks of performance, great capacity, an amazing look and a build that is matched by very few products in the world today, as can be seen by the above shots. Having the newest Angelbird Pro SSD 2 Go in hand, we have to wonder if Angelbird can match their release of the SSD2Go. By specs alone, their seems to be enough change to make a step in that direction in any case."
