ASUS Taichi 31 review: two sides of the story
     Thu, Jul 04 2013 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Taichi 31 is a unique product, and a successful one at that. It has two screens, one of which is a touchscreen, and the performance of this tablet/laptop is good. For most people the tablet screen will likely be nothing more than a cool gimmick, but for giving presentations on the road it can be a pretty useful feature. And it's nice that you always have a keyboard and touchpad handy.

OCZ Vertex 450 SSD Review: Vector-like Performance
     Thu, Jul 04 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The battle between the Vector and the Samsung SSD 840 Pro has been closely contested ever since the Indilinx-based drive arrived late last year, though when push comes to shove OCZ could be on the losing end. Meet the Vertex 450, OCZ's latest addition to the Vertex SSD series based on a slightly modified version of the Barefoot 3 controller that is designed to be more cost effective. So how does the new Vertex drive fare against the best SSDs in the market including OCZ's own?

NVIDIA Reiterates Dedication to Gaming on PC Working with Developers
     Thu, Jul 04 2013 | 11:49A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Obviously NVIDIA has a lot of work to do in the coming months, through no fault of its own really. The inherent response from the media with AMDs dominance in the console market is that this will carry over to the PC as well in due time. NVIDIA has thus taken a hit by not at least forcing its way into one of the consoles to force the same 50/50 split that existed in the previous generation."

SanDisk Extreme II Series 120GB 240GB and 480GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Jul 04 2013 | 9:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SanDisk has done a really nice job on the Marvell 88SS9187 controller firmware by squeezing out some great performance. Of course SanDisk has a great deal of expertise when it comes to flash memory storage solutions and holds over 4,500 patents. We saw sequential reads hit a touch over 520MB/s and writes clear the 520MB/s mark on the larger SanDisk Extreme II drives..."

Intel Solid State Drive DC S3500 Series Review
     Thu, Jul 04 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel is updating its line of enterprise-class solid state storage offerings today, with a new more cost-effective drive that targets datacenter and cloud-computing applications. The Intel SSD DC S3500 as it is known, is similar in a number of ways to the SSD DC S3700 we evaluated a few months back. The new drives, however, are built around more affordable NAND flash memory than the previously released DC S3700-series drives. Regardless, data integrity and consistent performance remain key differentiators for Intel's datacenter-targeted "DC"-branded drives, but the SSD DC S3500 will do so at much more mainstream price points than the higher-end DC S3700-series drives. The Intel SSD DC S3500 will be offered in 80GB - 800GB capacities in both 2.5" and 1.8" form factors, but a number of capacities, like the 120GB, 160GB, 300GB, and 600GB drives, will only be offered in 2.5" versions. We've got a 480GB, 2.5" drive on deck for you here...

Humble Bundle with Android 6 Review
     Thu, Jul 04 2013 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall the Humble Bundle with Android 6 is not the strongest bundle we have seen, but certainly has its strengths. It is hard to see why you would not want to get at least the base games, while the two BTA titles may only be worth the few dollars more to a smaller group of you. No matter how you look at it though, the bundle is a great deal and even if it had only one strong title, it would be a great deal. If additional BTA titles are added at the halfway point, as typically happens, the bundle will only get better."

Whats Wrong with the Xbox One? @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Jul 04 2013 | 8:21A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So what?s wrong with the Xbox One? Too many things at this point it seems. In the past day or so we?ve learned a lot about the Xbox One and then we really didn?t learn that much did we? It seems like we did, but watching that broadcast it seemed all smoke and mirrors to me with Microsoft leaving out a lot of things that I think most gamers are concerned with. Many issues were not addressed and when Microsoft was asked about them they provided vague answers that really weren?t answers at all. From what I saw most of their answers were basically no comment on a lot of things that are important to their customers. We?ve had a lot of media attention in the preceding months, a lot of speculation and a lot of people just talking about the next Xbox. People have made it clear what they wanted and didn?t want and what they expected from the next Xbox and it seems to me Microsoft just ignored everything that was said everywhere. "
