HGST SSD800MM SAS 12Gbps Enterprise SSD Receives Editors Choice Award Through Multi-SSD Analyses
     Sat, Jan 04 2014 | 10:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you have been following The SSD Review in 2013, you are probably familiar with our coverage of 12Gbps SAS. Throughout the year we have covered HBAs, RAID Adapters, Enclosures and SSDs. We have been incredibly busy reviewing new products, but one product in particular has stood out. In all of our 12Gbps SAS reviews we have sung the praises of the HGST SSD800MM. Since the SSD800MM was more of a means to an end when reviewing the LSI SAS 9300-8e, we never really gave it its proper due. With this update, we wanted to put this SSD into perspective after nearly a years worth of 12Gbps SAS testing."

logy DiskStation DS214 & DS214play
     Sat, Jan 04 2014 | 9:03A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although the Synology DS214 and the DS214play are two very different products designed for different purposes, they provided similar performance. Surprisingly despite being built on entirely different platforms we ended up with almost identical results and what’s great about that is those results were very good.

NZXT Kraken G10 AIO Graphics Card Adapter
     Sat, Jan 04 2014 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“When it comes to graphic card cooling, aftermarket air coolers were the best option in the past. Also, unless you were going full water cooling, your options were pretty limited. Recently we have started to see a mass of AIO (all in one) water cooling products come to market giving users many more options for CPU cooling; however, up until now there have not been too many similar options for graphics card cooling. The new NZXT Kraken might be the answer for those who want liquid cooling but may not have the ability for a full DIY custom solution.”

WD Black 2 SSD + HDD Dual Drive Review
     Sat, Jan 04 2014 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The price disparity between solid state and hard disk drives often forces mobile and small form factor users into the unenviable position of choosing performance over capacity. Provided they've got the budget, desktop users needn't compromise, because their systems can accommodate multiple drives of different form factors without issue. But SFF, all-in-one, and mobile systems are usually outfitted with only a single 2.5" drive bay, so if you want the performance of an SSD, but need a large capacity drive, you've got to shell out big bucks for a high-capacity SSD or settle for the lower performance of a hard drive. WD recently released a totally new class of product that aims to resolve this conundrum, however. The new WD Black 2 Dual-Drive (SSD + HDD) pairs 120GB of solid state storage with a 1TB hard disk, in a single 2.5" device. The WD Black 2 is not a caching solution, though, like some other hard drives outfitted with flash memory. Rather, the WD Black 2 operates as two independent drives-a fast SSD for your OS and most commonly used apps and a large hard drive for bulk storage...

Samsung 27-inch S27C750P Desktop LCD Monitor - BCCHardware
     Sat, Jan 04 2014 | 8:59A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The build quality of the bezel and overall appearance is pretty nice. When it comes to eye-candy, Samsung knows how to make plastic look good. The stand is the piece of hardware that gets me though. While I absolutely love the location of the rear ports and how the integrated cable management works so perfectly, the fact that there is no height adjustment is a little disappointing."

Seasonic Platinum Series SS-660XP2 Review @ ocaholic

Posted by: STAFF
"There are many PSUs in the Strider Gold series, but currently only 2 in the Gold S Series; the ST75F-GS 750W & ST85F-GS 850W models. Their main focus on PSUs recently have been on downsizing the enthusiasts PSUs. Note that these are the smallest fully modular ATX PSUs in their wattage class. This makes them compatible with all ATX cases, even SFF cases. The SilverStone Strider Gold S Series ST75F-GS Power Supply offers clean, quality power, it's 100% modular, comes with a quiet fan and is 80 Plus Gold certified." ~3dGameMan.com

Gigabyte Brix Projector i3-4010 review: Mini-projector PC
     Fri, Jan 03 2014 | 9:02A | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte makes very interesting mini-PCs along with their hardware components, but a special product in their Brix catalogue is the Brix Projector. We recently had the opportunity to try it out. The concept of the Gigabyte Brix Projector i3-4010 is a very original one, and the design looks good as well. In practice, however, it feels more like a showcase.

Review: ADATA DashDrive Elite SE720 128GB External SSD @ Custom PC Review

Posted by: STAFF
Excerpt: "Today we’ll be doing a review on the ADATA DashDrive Elite SE720 128GB. The DashDrive Elite SE720 128GB is a USB 3.0, bus powered portable SSD that, unlike portable hard drives, should easily be capable of saturating USB 3.0's 5Gbps bandwidth. The drive is unfortunately only offered in the 128GB variety and ADATA simply lists the drive as capable of..."

Super Talent PCIe DX1 M.2 SSD Review (128GB)
     Fri, Jan 03 2014 | 8:59A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Super Talent has once again been busy behind the scenes and their newest entries into the SSD market include a new M.2 NGFF design called the DX1. Anything but ordinary, the STT DX1 is available as a SATA M.2 SSD (known as the STT NGFF DX1), or that of a PCIe X1 interface where a SATA 3 SSD is routed through a PCIe to SATA bridge and travels via a single PCIe lane (STT PCIe DX1). A bit confusing at first, the additional benefit of the PCIe DX1 is that it is a fully bootable SSD and only the second bootable M.2 PCIe SSD we have seen to date. Perhaps this is the start of a trend."

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.
