Samsung XP941 NGFF M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0
     Fri, Nov 01 2013 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes we get fortunate enough to have just the right hardware at just the right time. Such was the case when Sony sent us their new VAIO Pro 13 Ultrabook with a Samsung XP941 M.2 PCIe SSD for review. That SSD provided performance speeds over 1GB/s and enabled our statement of the VAIO Pro 13 as being the smallest, lightest and highest performing ultrabook available to the consumer today. In publishing that report, we found ourselves with two Samsung XP941 M.2 PCIe SSDs on hand and the opportunity to configure one dynamite RAID 0 configuration, the other XP941 having been the subject of this SSD analysis.

be quiet! Power Zone 850 Watt Power Supply Review
     Fri, Nov 01 2013 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the new Power Zone 850 watt PSU, be quiet! has delivered a unit that delivers top tier features and performance, but does so at a price point that is very reasonable. The be quiet! Power Zone 850W shows off a fully modular cable system with excellent layout, all solid caps, 135mm Silent Wings fan and 80-PLUS Bronze efficiency."

be quiet! Pure Power L8 600W Power Supply Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Oct 31 2013 | 4:35P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
be quiet! may not be a name we know all that well here in America when it comes to powersupplies, but in the European market they have really made a name for themselves and are planning to do the same here in the states. Not that long ago we took a look at the Dark Power Pro 10 from be quiet! and we were extremely impressed. While this was one of the top of the line units from be quiet! the unit we are taking a look at today is more mainstream. The whole idea behind the Pure Power L8 600W unit is to deliver an affordable unit that does not compromise on quality. This unit features an 80PLUS Bronze certification, a 120 mm silence optimized fan and of course the quality we expect from be quiet!."

VisionTek GoDrive 7mm 240GB
     Thu, Oct 31 2013 | 4:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“As more consumers move to SSDs, the choices are many in terms of models and capacities. And for those who are productivity-oriented and need a notebook rather than a tablet, and media lovers who want a killer HTPC setup, smaller is simply better. One option is to choose SandForce-based SSD, which is a safe bet for most consumers, as these drives offer a strong blend of speed and affordability. There are many on the market, but today we’re looking at one from VisionTek that is unique in its low profile for those who need something primarily for a notebook or HTPC: the GoDrive 7mm 240GB. Let’s take a closer look at the VisionTek GoDrive 7mm 240GB SSD and see if it packs a punch for its small size.”

ASUS Transformer Book T100TA Windows
     Thu, Oct 31 2013 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks back we gave you a first-hand look at the performance of Intel's new low power Bay Trail Atom System-On-A-Chip for tablets and hybrid devices. Bay Trail, the follow-on to Intel's Clover Trail Atom design, comes in both dual and quad-core variants and offers better overall performance-per-watt than the previous generation and a significantly most robust graphics engine. At the time, we only got our hands on a few prototype devices and Intel was still tuning drivers getting the solution ready for prime time. This week, however, the Windows 8.1 and Intel Bay Trail onslaught begins as both Microsoft, with its Surface line-up, and various OEMs release their products to market comfortably ahead of the holiday shopping season. Today we're giving you a quick preview look at the first Bay Trail and full Windows 8.1 tablet to hit our test bench; it's another Transformer from ASUS, the ASUS Transformer Book T100TA.

Posted by: STAFF
When at home gaming, there is nothing that quite captures the immersion of being surrounded by the sounds of your favourite game. There are many tools available to gamers, be it a gaming headset or surround speakers. 2.1 systems are popular for those who have no real noise constraints to deliver suitable stereo sound that packs that cinematic bassy punch. Jumping into that foray, Speed"

ASRock Z87M Extreme4 Review @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Oct 31 2013 | 1:06P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Z87M Extreme4 ASRock have an mATX motherboard in their portfolio, which comes with a very reasonable price tag and other than that there is even a decent feature mix. On paper this sounds like quite a bargain then, but what will the results look like when we run the board through our benchmarking parcours?"

Corsair Vengeance LP Low Voltage 8GB 1600 MHz Memory
     Thu, Oct 31 2013 | 12:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The one color you will find that is missing from most manufacturer’s memory product lineup is white; not so with Corsair, who bucks the trend and offers up something not only in a classy white, but is also marketed towards overclocking and even comes stock ready for low power consumption. Enter the Corsair Vengeance LP Low Voltage White memory modules. Once you get past that mouthful of a name and the 78 dollar price at time of purchase, the sheer brilliance of the white coat on the heat spreaders against the black of the circuit board makes this one classy affair. Let’s put this memory on the AM3+ platform and see just what you get for your money!”

LG G2 Smartphone Review: Snapdragon 800 Powered
     Thu, Oct 31 2013 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The LG G2 is the follow-up to the Optimus G Pro -- which was an excellent phone in its own right. The G2 is part brawn and part brain, and it's actually a nice balance of the two. Qualcomm's 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 is the star of the show, offering more raw horsepower than most other Android phones on the market right now. On paper, it's clear that LG cut virtually no corners in getting the absolute best components within the G2. But they didn't stop there. LG also thought outside of the proverbial box a bit, rethinking where the commonplace volume rocker and power button should be located, considering the ergonomics in a different way than any other phone maker...
