ASUS USB-AC56 Wireless Adapter @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Dec 17 2013 | 4:37P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently we have done a few reviews on the emerging wireless AC technology but up until now those reviews have been limited to routers which merely allow access. Today we take a look at what may be one of the fastest ways to utilize your new wireless AC connection. The USB-AC56 from Asus is a dual-band network adapter meant to allow you to tap into the 5MHz band and only requires the use of a single USB3 connection. Will the AC56 prove to be your quickest solution to the fastest wireless speeds available or will it be better to search for other options? Well find out."

Kingston SSDNow E50 240GB review: affordable enterprise
     Tue, Dec 17 2013 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It took a while for the enterprise market to embrace SSDs, but they're finally becoming more common. The advantage of the fast storage medium can benefit server workloads. Kingston would like the new E50 SSDs to be an affordable replacement for 10k or 14k rpm conventional hard disks. They're intended for read intensive workloads, which means they're not optimised for high endurance workloads in which SSDs are under continuous workloads. The new E50 SSD is significantly more affordable than other enterprise SSDs such as the Intel DC S3700 series.

Seasonic Platinum Series V2 660W/760W/860W review: extremely efficient
     Tue, Dec 17 2013 | 4:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Seasonic Platinum 660W, 760W and 860W are basically perfect power supplies. They have the best low-load efficiency we've ever seen in this segment, the efficiency at higher loads is also good, their ripple is outstanding and the semi-passive design makes them inaudible in most circumstances. Had some of the cables been a little longer there would have been nothing we could complain about.

Moto X on Verizon Wireless @ lanOC Reviews
     Tue, Dec 17 2013 | 4:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The rebound phone from my love of the Motorola MAXX had to be something that shared a lot of its features but helped me get over the amazing battery life. Verizon Wireless sent over the Moto X, a phone that shares the same hardware other than a smaller screen and the battery of the MAXX. I have been toying with the Moto X for some time now and I wanted to talk a little today about how it performed. Will it just be a rebound phone, or will things work out between the Moto X and I. Stay tuned for more after the break, these are the Days Phones Of Our Lives."

Western Digital Black2 Hybrid Hard Drive Review
     Tue, Dec 17 2013 | 4:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Black2 crams both solid state and disk drive technologies into one drive, and does so in the simplest of ways. Similar to what desktop users have been doing for years, the Black2 makes the flash portion a primary boot drive with the disk serving as bulk storage. The difference is that the Black2 only uses a single slot.

CM Storm Ceres-300 Headset @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Dec 17 2013 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The gaming headset market is flooded but conventional wisdom has always been that if you want quality sound and a comfortable fit you are going to have to pay a little bit more for it. Today, however, we review an introductory model from Cooler Master that promises all the performance and comfort you’d expect in a mid-range headset at a price tag of under $30. The Ceres 300 is a follow-up to the Ceres 400 and comes with a more streamlined look and feel. Everything you’d expect to see in a head twice the price seems present but we will put it to the test to see if the Ceres 300 is truly worthy of praise.

...Despite what some might view as a hamstrung operating system, the reason that Chromebooks are a tempting option is that most of them are very inexpensive. The one we're looking at today, the Acer C720 Chromebook, costs a mere $249, which is about on par price-wise for many Chromebooks these days.
