Samsung Galaxy Note Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Mar 31 2012 | 7:51A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It can`t be classified as a superphone or a tablet but the new Samsung Galaxy Note strides within the distance separating these two categories by offering a unique blend of portability and functionality. Alongside its unique S Pen hybrid stylus, the Note offers up tablet-like features such as a large screen size and fast processor while retaining inbound and outbound cellular network calling. It sure sounds great but does this middle ground approach make this device a jack of all trades but a master of none? * *"

REVIEW: SanDisk Extreme 240GB @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Mar 31 2012 | 7:47A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SanDisk Extreme 240GB solid state drive has a new firmware and SanDisk`s own 24 nm toggle NAND. This is the first time a SandForce based drive has been offered with this particular configuration. So is it faster with the new firmware and NAND configuration? Well, we will save the suspense and start off by telling you this is the fastest SATA III drive we have tested to date. Not only that, but this drive is available now for the great low price of $339.99. How`s that price for the fastest drive we have ever tested?"

REVIEW: Plextor M3 256GB SATA III @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Mar 31 2012 | 7:44A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Plextor M3 256GB SATA III contains an updated Marvell controller that continues to use a SATA 6G interface, which is able to take advantage of the insane speeds offered by the new standard. At a 256GB capacity, this drive is surprisingly affordable and very fast, satisfying the top performance and capacity that enthusiasts crave. Plextor is responding to the growing demand for a top tier drive that performs as well with incompressible data as it does with compressible data with their M3 Series of drives."

REVIEW: Gigabyte Z68XP-UD5 @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Mar 31 2012 | 7:40A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel`s Z68 chipset isn`t exactly new, but it`s not old, and certainly packs a performance punch, marrying much of the advantages of what we saw in P67 and H67 into a hybrid of sorts. And while the latest and greatest X79 is attracting most of the hype, it`s the mid-range market that often quietly brings in the profits. After all, not everyone can afford dropping a small fortune on a LGA2011 platform setup. The Z68 board from Gigabyte we`re looking at is the Z68XP-UD5. It has many of the enthusiast features Gigabyte is known for, but lacks the high price tag of its X79 counterparts. Can this board measure up? We think so."

QNAP TS-879U-RP 10GbE NAS Server @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Mar 31 2012 | 7:36A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a glass ceiling in the world of NAS devices, and like all glass ceilings it`s not that obvious until you bang your head against it a few times. The standard-issue network interface in the IT world is a one Gigabit Ethernet connection. Convert bits to bytes and you end up with a less impressive sounding 125 MB/s interface. The ceiling comes into play quickly, because even a single 3TB HDD can push 160 MB/s through its SATA 6GB/s interface, when it`s running hard. I was a little frustrated when I did an extensive review of the QNAP TS-879U-RP Turbo NAS server last month, because I didn`t have a network environment that could unleash its full performance. Now that I do, let`s take a look at what it takes to get this corporate animal up to full speed."

Solving the Blue Screen of Death - Windows Biggest Error
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 8:21P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

If you've ever used Windows, chances are you've experienced the lovely shade of blue associated with the famous Windows Stop Error or 'Blue Screen of Death.' This frequent, although less so in newer operating systems, error occurs whenever Windows senses a software, hardware or driver error which will not allow it to continue operating properly. In other words, it happens all the time, for all sorts of reasons.

Often, if you're lucky, the problem will resolve itself with a simple reboot and you may never have to worry about it again. More typically though, the BSOD is a harbinger of trouble and you may find yourself faced with another and another until you throw up your hands... but all is not lost.

It comes with a converter that lets you quickly switch it from a computer-based headset to a mobile phone headset. It has good playback audio quality, but the microphone could be better."

Plextor M3 Pro 256GB (PX-256M3P) Solid State Drive Review
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 12:58P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Marvell 88SS9174 isn`t quite sixty years old, but the controller first hit the scene in January 2010, a long time in computer component years. Just like the 911, each minor revision adds to the speed and functionality. Also like the 911, the components that surround the main controller have changed to produce a better product. Plextor has taken a bit of that Porsche magic and brought it into the new M3 Pro solid state drive. The base for the M3 Pro is the same 9174 controller we`ve been reporting on for more than two years. Plextor has paired this ageless controller with the newest NAND flash on the market today, Toshiba 24nm Toggle Mode flash."

Plextor M3 Pro 128GB (PX-128M3P) Solid State Drive Review
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 12:35P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You may not have noticed but there`s been a changing of the guard when it comes to SSDs based on Marvell controllers. The first Marvell SATA 6G drive to enter the market was the Crucial C300. The C300 battled it out with the first generation SandForce controller which at the time were limited to SATA 3G speeds of 285MB/s read. The C300 took advantage of SATA 6G and mustered an impressive 375MB/s read speed in our tests of the 256GB model. At that time Crucial was the only SSD manufacture using a Marvell controller. Last year Crucial released their second product based on a Marvell controller, the Crucial m4. The exclusivity was lost though as more companies started churning out products based on the Marvell design, mainly Intel, Corsair and Plextor. The competition wasn`t favorable for Crucial and the Marvell SSD market was pretty evenly divided amongst the newly formed Team Marvell group. For the most part each of these Marvell products resembled the other and there wasn`t a real standout. Intel jumped ship completely and is now playing for Team SandForce, partly because they couldn`t compete with their IMFT flash and the Marvell controller. Crucial is in that same boat as of now but with 20nm IMFT flash far on the horizon they are a ship without a paddle. Then there is the unbound."

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.
