Acer Chromebook C720 SSD Upgrade To MyDigitalSSD M.2 (NGFF) 128GB SSD Worlds Easiest Upgrade
     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 2:08P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking for a new computer and are a typical PC user, you need to take a look at the Google Chromebook. There are three brands of the Chromebook (Acer, HP and Samsung), it is SSD driven which means lightning fast startups and operation, they get anywhere from 8 to 10 hours battery life, and they are CHEAP! After spending a few days with this new Acer C720 Chromebook and getting to learn the ins and outs, I can honestly say that this is the simplest PC I have ever held. In fact, this will be going to my wonderful mother (72 yrs old) who has never had a PC before this. The person that will have the most difficulty refitting themselves to the Chromebook, are us PC geeks that have gotten used to things just being a certain way."

Ultra-Speed DDR3 Revisited: AMD APU Memory Scaling
     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 10:04A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The R7 graphics in the 7850K responded in perfect linear fashion to each memory speed bump, and the overclocked system provided some pretty good FPS averages as well. I did have to use some very high voltages to reach stability more easily, but a user with patience and a very good CPU cooler could find a power/performance sweet spot with an APU like the 7850K that would not only blow away the experience of a console, but would be a heck of a lot of fun to play around with!"

Synology DS414 High Performance 4-bay NAS Server for SMB & SOHO Review @ Madshrimps

Posted by: STAFF
The DS414 NAS from Synology is based on a dual-core Marvell Armada XP running at 1.33Ghz and is paired with a total of 1GB DDR3, which should be enough for home use and small business. Inside the bays we can use both 2.5 (HDD/SSD) and 3.5 drives (screwless installation).

32GB OTG USB Flash Drive Roundup - Corsair Kingston Transcend @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Apr 19 2014 | 2:08P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There was a time just recently when there were no USB On-The-Go (OTG) flash drives on the market, but now there are hundreds of different models from dozens of brands. OTG USB flash drives are often referred to as dual-drives due to the fact they feature Micro-USB and Type A USB 2.0 connectors. Legit Reviews took a look at the Corsair Flash Voyager Go back in January 2014, but we have since received OTG Flash drives from Kingston and Transcend. Rather than doing individual reviews on each product we figured that we would compare all three drives to one another since they are all 32GB OTG USB drives aimed at the same consumer..."

Cooler Master Elite 110 Mini-ITX Case Review
     Sat, Apr 19 2014 | 2:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooler Master Elite 110 Mini-ITX Computer Case is a compact, cube style case that can handle some full sized desktop components, while maintaining a relatively small footprint. With the ability to handle a ATX sized power supply, and desktop graphic cards up to 210mm (8.26 inches), the Elite 110 is aimed at more than just the niche market. Sporting the ability to hold 4 SSDs or 3 HDDs, storage options are not a problem."

Linksys EA6900 AC1900 Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router
     Sat, Apr 19 2014 | 9:55A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wireless technology never stands still so although it wasn`t until roughly just over a year ago when manufacturers released their very first AC1750 compatible routers now we already see AC1900 compatible ones offering even higher combined speeds. Of course not every single manufacturer out there has joined in on the fun as of yet but the market leaders like Linksys and Netgear can`t afford to not be on the forefront of technology so naturally their AC1900 routers are the first to see the light of day. Our routers review section is somewhat under populated compared to out other sections because we don`t do router reviews of models that we think have nothing new and innovative to offer (both in features and specifications) but the brand new EA6900 AC1900 Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router by Linksys seems to have everything going for it from appearance and up to features and specifications so we just had to take a look."

What Role Do SSD Components Play - Learning To Run With Flash

Posted by: STAFF
Although most parts are consistent in all SSDs (PCB, controller, memory, interface), we will describe that which the consumer is most likely to see, the notebook SSD. Originally available in a thickness of 9.5mm, todays notebook SSDs are typically only 7mm thick to allow for ultra book installations and may include a rubber spacer to allow it to fit notebooks that require that 9.5cm width."
