WD Red 3TB NAS Hard Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 2:17P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Western Digital Red series was designed for NAS servers and it leaves us wondering why no one did this before! Industry analysts believe that the NAS market will greatly expand in the years to come and WD now has a product to fill the void that was present. Buying the least expensive drive at your desired capacity and using it in a NAS was the popular way to find drives to populate a NAS, but now there is a hard drive series made just for NAS and RAID environments..."

Corsair AX760 Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 10:49A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, Corsair added four new models to its AX power supply series: AX760, AX860, AX760i, and AX860i. The i models use a digital signal processor (DSP) and are the most unique PC power supplies ever released. We`ve already reviewed the AX760i, which proved to be the best power supply we`ve ever reviewed. Now it is time for us to take a look at the version of this power supply that doesn`t use a digital signal processor. Let`s check it out."

     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 9:49A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer Iconia W700-6465 is a pricey 11-inch tablet that features an aluminum design, a beautiful display and an detachable keyboard and dock. For a tablet, it is thicker and heavier than most others and the camera is also not up to par."

[Tech ARP] Mobile CPU Comparison Guide Rev. 9.2
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 8:27A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink

Fractal Design Adjust 108 Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 8:17A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Adjust 108 is a slight step away from the chassis market whilst remaining all about cooling and quiet computing. Fractal Design have tended to bundle their Define chassis with integrated fan controllers, and the Adjust 108 is their first fan controller to be sold separately for installation in any tower PC with an empty 5.25 bay. As we`ve come to expect the unit features a sleek finish - in this case black anodised brushed aluminium - on a product which is designed for optimal functionality and compatibility rather than ancillary features."

XSPC RayStorm 750 RS360 Kit Review @ Vortez

REVIEW: Roccat Lua Mouse and Sense Chrome Blue Mouse Pad @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 11:31P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at the Roccat Lua Mouse and Roccat Sense Chrome Mouse Pad. The simple, yet unique design and functionality of this particular peripheral may catch you by surprise. While we look into these products you will see why, sometimes, going back to basics can be a good thing. We too often look for the newest and greatest technology, and forget that not everyone needs all those extra bells and whistles. Rather, it`s sometimes the mere thought of having the latest and best gadgets that gets the blood pumping. Today, what we have to share is simple, yet functional, but with the latest software engineering that may surprise even the most ardent techy. What Roccat has here is also something that can fit almost anyone`s budget."

Tt eSPORTS Ladom Mousepad Review - BCCHardware
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 11:26P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`m sure some of us at one point have accidentally spilled coffee or other beverages onto our mousepads and ended up with a soggy sponge. The next test is the water test. I poured an ounce of water onto the Thermaltake Ladon gaming mouse pad and just waited. After a few minutes of the water just sitting on surface and not soaking in I just wiped it clean with my lint free towel. . ."
