Intel Atom Z3770 ‘Bay Trail’ review
     Sat, Sep 21 2013 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are one of the first to extensively test a prototype tablet running on the latest generation Intel Atom processors, and we have the results of 20+ different benchmarks. The Atom Z3000 ‘Bay Trail’ CPUs are supposed to give ARM processors a run for their money, in terms of performance and energy-efficiency. We tested prototype Windows 8.1 and Android 4.2 tablets with the new Atom Z3770 and compared the performance to the current Atom platform and recent ARM chips such as the Nvidia Tegra 4. Will 2014 be the year Intel makes real headway in the tablet market?

How To Fix GDI Leaks In Internet Explorer
     Sat, Sep 21 2013 | 4:01P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite its declining popularity, Microsoft Internet Explorer remains an important web browser with many corporate users. However, Internet Explorer 10 seems to suffer from the same GDI leaks as Internet Explorer 9, causing pages to stop displaying properly or not at all. This is less of a problem with Internet Explorer 10, usually happens after days of use, but it's still there. Well, we cannot actually fix the GDI leak in Internet Explorer. That's Microsoft's job. But we can workaround the problem, and extend the "quota" on GDI objects, so that Internet Explorer won't face these display issues. Just follow these steps...

Synology DS1813+ (NAS with SSD Caching)
     Sat, Sep 21 2013 | 4:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As for the Synology DS1813+ itself, well like the DS1513+ we love it. Apart from the industry leading DSM 4.3 software, we really liked the improvements Synology has made to the DS1813+. The screw less trays might not seem like a big deal, but they really make installing and removing drives faster and easier. The fan setup also keeps the DS1813+ very cool and extremely quiet, and the ability to expand with another 10 bays down the track makes this one of the most flexible NAS solutions available.

Samsung SSD 840 Evo Review:
     Sat, Sep 21 2013 | 12:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Flash performance and endurance is a tricky subject, and yet Samsung's flagship, the SSD 840 Pro remains one of the best in both categories. Having aced its attempts at speed and durability, Samsung seems focused on solving flash's biggest sacrifices: size and affordability. Its new SSD 840 Evo lineup has models spanning from 120GB to 1TB, with the largest costing only $0.65 per gigabyte thanks to its use of TLC NAND.

ASUS PCE-AC66 Wi-Fi AC1750 PCIe Wireless Adapter Review
     Sat, Sep 21 2013 | 10:12A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS PCE-AC66 802.11ac wireless PCIe adapter is currently the only wireless adapter I know of, that allows you to experience the wonders of 3-Stream IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi. It won?t be the last, for sure, because the gains in wireless throughput are too good to pass up. There are several significant changes in the new 802.11ac standard, and upping the maximum allowable number of spatial streams is one of them. Theoretically, eight individual streams are supported by 802.11ac, but the new chips from Broadcom top out at three streams on a single IC. That?s enough to push 1.3Gbps across the airwaves on the 5GHz Wi-Fi band, which is probably where the consumer devices will stay. There are several wireless adapters on the market that are capable of handling two streams, but right now the PCE-AC66 is alone at the top of the 802.11ac heap, with three streams and the data rates to match."

How the ADSL Connection Works @ Hardware Secrets
     Sat, Sep 21 2013 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) is one of the most popular technologies for Internet connection, using the infrastructure of your local telephone company. There are several types of DSL (a.k.a. xDSL) connections, such as VDSL, with ADSL being the most popular one in most countries. Its name comes from the fact that its download speed is higher than its upload speed, hence classified as asymmetrical. A symmetrical connection is one where the download and the upload speeds are the same."

TDK A360 Wireless 360 Speaker
     Fri, Sep 20 2013 | 6:46P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Portable devices have become part of our daily lives and whether that`s in the form of smartphones, portable speakers, media players, tablets, notebooks and even coffee makers we simply can`t go back to how things were not too long ago. However while it`s the trend of our days to miniaturize pretty much everything related with electronics Im glad to say that there are some areas of the industry where that`s not how things are and what better example than the quite massive A73 Boombox wireless speaker by TDK which we had the chance to test a while back? Well it seems that the very successful path TDK has taken over the last couple of years in regard to their portable speaker line is not something to be taken lightly but since the Boombox line has not really been the most portable in the market this time over they took things a step further by introducing the brand new A360 Wireless 360 Speaker and we`re amongst the very first to get their hands on it."

Posted by: STAFF
“Antec is one of the big names in the PC case market, with award-winning cases from the “hundred” and Sonata series to their line of HTPC cases and the like. Antec just added a newcomer to their gaming case lineup in the form of the GX series. Right now, the only model is the GX 700 which we’ll be looking at today. The GX 700 offers a low price point of just $60 (although can be found for less) and is packed with features. But how many features can be included for this low of a price? Let’s find out, shall we?”

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
