     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 4:04P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just a Fractal Design XL Black Pearl USB3.0 version modded up. Wanted something very simple but eye-catching. Had planned on not having a window, but once I got startedkept adding this and that. Ripped the window in it because everyone I showed build pics to said it would be a shame to not be able to see the interior. Not 100% finished yet. Still got a few odds and ends to get to."

SSD News: The SSD Review SSD Database Is Live!
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 12:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Have you ever looked for specific SSD information but couldn`t find it? Ever wondered who used such and such a controller or such and such memory? Ever sought out SSDs by a specific manufacturer, capacity, or even a specific memory type? By no means are we 100% complete just yet, but we think we might have a great SSD database that can help our readers out. Thanks to the hard work of Rick Mauer, we believe we may just have the most complete SSD Database available on the internet.

Rise Of The Phablet Is A Bigger Smartphone Better? @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 10:19A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First off, can we all agree that Phablet is a terrible name? A Smartphone with a big screen does not make a tablet. Second, lets examine what exactly a Phablet is. The difference between a large phone and a small tablet is that a small tablet will run (at least in theory) tablet optimized applications, whereas the large phone is stuck with phone apps. The question is how big is too big for a phone?"

Roku 3 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 10:06A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roku is a pioneer in video-streaming media hubs, but as Apple TV became popular, and HDTVs and Blu-ray players began supporting Netflix and other online services, Roku boxes started to look less unique and less useful. The latest box, the Roku 3 changes that. What`s new? More power, a streamlined interface, an invaluable cross-service search feature, and a remote-mounted headphone jack."

NETGEAR ProSafe GS110T Gigabit SmartSwitch @ Benchmark Reviews
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 9:19A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until recently, there were only two types of network switches, un-managed and managed. Today, there is a new class, called Smart Switches. A blend of the two previous extremes, they`re targeted to both corporate users and what the industry politely calls ProSumers. Switches aren`t reviewed by the press that often, but they are a necessary part of many home and SMB networks, so we need to look at what`s available now and then. NETGEAR is a major player in the networking market, and today Benchmark Reviews looks at the GS110T, one of the less expensive offerings in their ProSafe SmartSwitch line. It`s got enough GbE ports to future-proof most home installations, plus two fiber optic interfaces..."

The TS-469L is another powerful NAS from QNAP aimed at home and small business users, equipped with a HDMI interface that can be connected to our Full-HD TV.

Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard @LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 9:05A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to gaming keyboards there really are only a few names that the average person will name off. The first one will most likely be Logitech, because not only have they been around forever, but also if you havent owned a G15 at some point then chances are one of your close friends has. They really did set the golden standard for a long time in gaming focused keyboards. The thing is recently a lot more people have been interested in mechanical keyboards and Logitech took their time bringing their first one out. Now that the G710+ is out, Im excited to see how it performs. Was it worth the wait? There is only one way to find out."
