Dell XPS One 27 All-in-One Desktop Review
     Sat, Jun 02 2012 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's a transformation taking place in the PC market, and despite what the doomsayers might tell you, it has nothing to do with tablets, smartphones, tweener devices like the Galaxy Note, or increasingly media-centric game consoles. No, the transformation we're observing is one where people are trading in their towers and monitors for space-saving all-in-one (AIO) desktops. The AIO form factor isn't new by any means, but for a number of reasons, it's finally starting to gain momentum. And as they become more popular, companies like Dell have begun paying more attention to ways they can improve upon the design. To wit, Dell's new XPS One 27, reviewed here, introduces a spacious and vibrant 27-inch display with a Wide Quad HD (WQHD) 2560x1440 resolution and Samsung Plane to Line Switching (PLS) panel...

Phanteks PH-TC14PE Red Heatsink Review on Frostytech.com
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 4:18P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"The Phanteks PH-TC14PE (red) itself is a pretty standard dual tower, five-8mm-heatpipe-packing heatsink that retails for about $90 bucks. It stands 168mm tall and has a wide 144x161mm footprint that may have clearance issues on some motherboards where RAM slots and VRM heatsinks are too tall, too near the CPU socket. The cooler weighs upwards of 1250 grams and ships with two 140mm PWM fans arranged in a push-pull configuration. Phanteks' PH-TC14PE (red) heatsink is compatible with Intel socket 775/1155/1156/1366 and AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1 processors."

Acer AC700-1099
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 4:17P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The hardware inside the Samsung Series 5 is nearly identical to what was inside the Acer AC700-1099 that we reviewed late last year. We’re talking an Atom processor that must rely on its own IGP, two gigabytes of RAM and a tiny–but quick–16GB solid state drive. While the equipment is the same, the pricing has changed. When we reviewed the Acer Chromebook it was $349.99. That has been slashed to $279.99. The Series 5, which used to be priced at $429, is now sold for just $299. Let’s see if improved software and a lower price can turn Chromebooks into winners.

Thecus N4100EVO review: four bays for a good price
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 12:02P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have recently reviewed a lot of NAS devices, and now it's Thecus's turn. Their new N4100EVO is a relatively affordable and very comprehensive NAS for its £240 price tag. Despite its relatively low price, this is a model that is pretty fully-featured. The compact little box has a door on the front, behind which the four hard drive trays are located. The trays are equipped with individual locks. On the front you will find an on/off switch, a USB connection and a display. The latter is a very practical feature to have, since it lets you see what the IP address is for example without having to use a computer. The performance and the noise production however are disappointing.

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.
