SSD News: Kingston 64GB Wi-Drive Review - A PC Users Solution To Mac Storage
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 4:08P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
David Leong as part of Computex Taipei 2011 and he introduced a new product that Kingston was about to release called the Wi-Drive, an apparent Mac add-on. Being the consummate PC Guy and (at that time) very vocal anti-Mac proponent, I moved on to Kingston`s HyperX SSD news and afforded the Wi-Drive the standard article entry, not believing that we would ever cross paths again. Boy, was I wrong!"

LaCie 4big Rack Office review
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LaCie recently added a new model to its line of Windows storage servers. The 4big Rack Office is positioned next to the 5big Office and the 5big Office+, and is made to fit in a rack like the name suggests. Most rack models are not exactly the most attractively designed products, but LaCie put some effort into this design like it does with all its products. The chassis is made entirely out of aluminium, and while it's intended for a 19-inch rack, it wouldn't look out of place on a table either.

REVIEW: OCZ Agility 4 256GB @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?It?s not always the enthusiasts (and well-heeled) that want blistering speeds, and certainly not just in the SSD arena. Anyone with an SSD can benefit from massive performance gains over a hard drive, from the most diehard to the budget-oriented consumer. So the OCZ Agility 4 targets the latter, incorporating the Everest 2 controller but offering an SSD package that?s very accessible to users on a modest budget. The interesting thing about the Agility 4 is the Everest controller looks to offer nearly enthusiast-classed performance, particularly in incompressible data, at a much lower price point than we typically see. Currently retailing for only $189 in the 256GB capacity ($100 for 128GB), that?s only $0.73 per GB and a very attractive deal. But how does the performance of the OCZ Agility 4 measure up? Is it worth the investment? Let?s find out.?"

Netgear R6300 802.11ac Wireless Router Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Netgear R6300 802.11ac router combines the fastest Wi-Fi speeds we have ever tested with a clever and complete user interface for ultimate control. Some may not like the footprint or aggressive shape, but we think with all the features that Netgear has outfitted the R6300 with there is no better router on the market today..."

Why Linux Will Never Suffer From Viruses Like Windows
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 4:00P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There seems to be a recurring phenomenon in the technology press, where any trojan that affects Linux or Macs becomes front page news. On the other hand, trojans that affect Windows are mostly ignored, perhaps because this is considered to be the normal state of affairs. There are two common statements made in the discussions of these rare events: 1, No operating system will ever be secure from Trojans and 2, Linux/Mac only have fewer viruses because no one uses them. The first statement is almost correct, whereas the second one is a flat out myth in my opinion. Let me explain, and I’ll listen if you still disagree after reading the following in its entirety.

SSD NEWS: ADATA SX300 128GB mSATA SSD Review - LSI SandForce Performance In Top Capacities
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 3:43P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The popularity of mSATA SSDs is probably one of the more unexpected SSD trends to show its face and, even today, e-tailers just can`t seem to keep mSATA SSDs in stock. With consumers now wanting the performance best in their mSATA capable laptops, ultras hitting the market, as well as a few motherboards now being shipped with integrated mSATA ports, this trend doesn`t seem to be letting up anytime soon. In a few Lenovo laptops models, the mSATA became an answer to both performance and capacity as the SSD became the boot drive enabling the hard drive as strictly a storage medium. Our SSD analysis today will look at another of the mSATA family as we examine the new ADATA SX300 mSATA 128GB SSD."

Posted by: STAFF
"Thermaltake is perhaps better known for their cases, coolers, power supplies and storage, but their gaming subdivision – Tt eSPORTS – has spent the past couple of years proving that they are also strong when it comes to peripherals. In fact, Tt eSPORTS is becoming a more and more popular option for gamers looking to improve their overall gaming experience.

OWC Mercury Accelsior 480GB PCI-E Solid State Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 11:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PCI-Express solid state drives are fairly new and there are only a handful of these drives available. These devices break the speed barrier on SATA 6GB/s drives by using the PCI-E interface. The most prevalent PCI-E solid state drives our OCZs RevoDrive series, but OCZ better watch out because the drive we are taking a look at today has a few features that the RevoDrives do not. The OWC Mercury Accelsior PCI-E Solid State Drive comes in capacities from 120GB to 960GB, is upgradable, and is both PC and Mac plug and play compatible. Want to learn more? Read on for our review!"

Posted by: STAFF
Corsair`s Force GS 240GB may be one of the best SSDs we`ve reviewed over the past year. While it may use a slightly older SF2281 controller, the use advanced NAND allows for killer performance at an unbelievably low price. This drive really does have it all. * *"

Sapphire and ECS X79 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 11:48A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After looking at the lack of a heat sink over half of the VRM package I was leery of pushing too hard on the ECS X79R-AX. But push it did and offered up a higher overclock than the Sapphire Pure Black X79N by over 100MHz. The ECS BIOS allows the user to adjust the voltages in positive or negative increments instead of a fixed value for the CPU. By adjusting the vcore up and enabling LLC I was able to push the Core i7 3960X to 4653MHz using 1.46v."
