Plextor M3 Pro 256GB SSD reviewed
     Sat, May 26 2012 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we reviewed the Plextor M3 256GB SSD earlier this year our verdict was pretty positive. That model is based on the Marvell 88SS9174 controller combined with 24nm Toshiba ToggleFlash NAND chips. Its performance was excellent, the warranty impressive (five-year factory warranty) but the price was a bit steep in our opinion. A lot has happened in the world of SSDs in the few months that have passed since then. We've witnessed the arrival of new models such as the OCZ Vertex 4, but also the beginning of a price war. Many popular SSDs such as Crucial's m4 and Intel's new SSD 330 series are in the meantime available for significantly less than £1 per GB.

     Sat, May 26 2012 | 8:11A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although NAS (Network Attached Storage) servers/devices were never actually ment to become a mainstream product for home use and were initially targeted towards office users, small/large businesses and enterprises today more and more people trust them not only to store and remotely share their data but also as media/web/download servers. Of course there`s a great number of available NAS devices in the market from entry-levels ones that can be used for all the above mentioned functions up to high-end ones not only featuring very good hardware specifications but also a wealth of available functions (that`s why i call them servers). Today we will be taking a thorough look into the high-end TurboNAS TS-259 Pro+ Dual Bay NAS by QNAP with small and medium businesses as its target group."

Enermax Fulmo GT Review
     Fri, May 25 2012 | 4:09P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall, the temperatures were not that remarkable; I had expected a little more with the excess space to move air about. The chipset temperatures were something notable. These temps took over the lowest by over ten degrees at load. I attribute the difference solely to the side mounted fans. It is almost unfair to compare it to the others in the batch, as none of them had side panel fans to blow air directly across the motherboard. Either way, it does perform well here and very well at that. Unfortunately, the remaining temperatures were only equivalent to the other cases, which are significantly smaller. I was expecting a much bigger difference in temperatures and was gravely disappointed."

     Fri, May 25 2012 | 4:08P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
today on the test bench we have the Raidmax Seiran. The white edition is sure to catch some second glances as white chassis are few and far between in the marketplace.

It sports two USB 2.0 connections and one USB 3.0 connection along with a built in fan controller and LED light controller. The Seiran brings along some tool-free installation mechanisms as well.

Interview with Raspberry's Founder Eben Upton
     Fri, May 25 2012 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Eben Upton has had an interesting trajectory both as an entrepreneur and academic, founding a couple of startups over the last decade and a half, as well as acting as the Director of Studies in Computer Science at the University of Cambridge. Now employed at Broadcom as an SoC architect, his latest “on-the-side” venture combines a little bit of each facet and is perhaps its most ambitious yet: reignite programming in schools with a cheap ($25-$35), compact computing platform that kids could buy themselves. But despite targeting students, his foundation's tiny computer has already captured the imaginations of tinkers worldwide.
