OCZ Agility 4 256GB SSD Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Jan 28 2013 | 1:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ`s Agility 4 uses the Indilinx-infused Everest 2 platform, similar to the Vertex 4. The Agility 4 drive however, uses asynchronous MLC NAND so that it may be offered at a lower price point in comparison to the Vertex 4. Available in capacities ranging from 64GB to 512GB, the OCZ Agility 4 is a cost-effective SATA III solution that could fit any budget. The OCZ Agility 4 offers TRIM support, access latencies as low as 0.02ms and up to 85,000 random 4K write IOPS. The move toward Indilinx controller technology worked well for the Vertex 4 and OCZ wants to show that the Everest 2 platform could deliver a balanced performance in the Agility 4 despite using asynchronous NAND compared to the previous generation SandForce based drives."

     Sun, Jan 27 2013 | 1:17A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Finding a good quality set of headphones with a microphone that are compatible across multiple platforms is difficult. Either you get good sound, with no headset features, or you get a headset with less than stellar audio quality for music. The Oblanc NC2-1 UFO headphones aim to fill that slot.

With a padded headband, massive 50 mm driver, in line microphone with call control, and a 4-pole connector with adapter to work across smartphones, tablets, mobile phones, and computers; the NC2-1 headphones are packed with features, and we`re going to test them out..."

Crossover 27Q 2560 x 1440 LED Pivot Monitor Review - XSReviews
     Sat, Jan 26 2013 | 12:24P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Crossover 27Q sounded like an absolute bargain -- a pixel-dense 2560 x 1440 PLS display, 27? across the diagonal, mounted on a stand that allowed up to 90 degree rotation, all for 250. That`s the same price I paid for my HannsG 28DP monitor three years ago -- and that monitor uses a TFT panel, has no LED backlight, doesn`t swivel and indeed has broken down three times in three months. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

SSD NEWS: Plextor M5 Pro SSD Review (256GB)
     Fri, Jan 25 2013 | 5:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While at our meeting with Plextor at CES Las Vegas 2013, we had a conversation with respect to how TSSDR and Plextor could better serve the consumer in forming a bit tighter of a relationship with respect to upcoming product release. In this conversation, the fact that we had yet to review the Plextor M5 Pro came up and we had to admit that this SSD had completely slipped our mind. No sooner did we mention that we would love to review the M5 Pro than it was sent, in fact, hitting the ground at our office even before our return. Our SSD analysis today will take a close look at the Plextor M5 Pro SATA 3 256GB SSD, an SSD capable of over 500MB/s transfer speeds and 100,000 IOPS."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - DRAM Idle Timer
     Thu, Jan 24 2013 | 4:39P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *DRAM Idle Timer* setting."

Cougar PowerX 550W Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Jan 24 2013 | 12:24P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cougar PowerX 550W power supply obviously is a product designed to entice users into upgrading from a cheap unit of unknown (and, usually, extremely poor) quality to one of acceptable quality and performance standards. Considering that the MSRP of the power supply is just $69.99 and that the actual retail price usually is quite lower than the MSRP, the PowerX 550W might actually be a very good deal for casual users and gamers on a very tight budget. On the other hand however, the saying you get what you pay for fits perfectly in this case..."
