Samsung 830 Series 256GB SATA III SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Dec 16 2011 | 4:12P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we hinted at in the introduction, Samsung has done a great job in putting together a SATA III SSD that competes strongly with any other SATA based drive on the market today. The specifications of 520MB/s reads and 400MB/s writes were exceeded in some of our tests and while it trails the fastest SandForce drives in the sequential writes on highly compressed data, it`s a usage scenario that rarely presents itself in the real world - especially on a consistent basis. So, it can`t be held too strongly against them. Conversely, on incompressible data, it does just as well where the SandForce drives tend to nosedive. The Samsung controller is similar to the Marvell and new Indilinx controllers with the use of a cache and consistent performance across data types..."

Rosewill Blackhawk-Ultra HPTX Computer Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Dec 16 2011 | 1:09P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Desktop comptuters are seen by some pundits as a dying breed, and perhaps they are. Laptop and even tablet computers are now capable of fulfilling most people`s needs, and even those who want or need a desktop machine could probably be satisfied with a micro-ATX motherboard in a small form factor case. Then there are those for whom even a full tower case is not enough: they need to accomodate a dozen hard drives, or an elaborate water cooling system, or perhaps an HPTX motherboard. For those select few, Rosewill offers the Blackhawk Ultra computer case, the largest case Benchmark Reviews has ever tested."

Sony Bravia XBR-55HX929 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Dec 16 2011 | 11:34A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Sony XBR-55HX929 is a 55-inch LED 3D HDTV that has really great black levels and overall picture performance. It also has an attractive, solidly built design that encompasses many Internet-connected services, but viewing angles are a little off and no 3D glasses are included.?"

Sony Reader Wi-Fi (PRS-T1) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Dec 16 2011 | 9:50A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Sony`s new Reader Wi-Fi (PRS-T1) rings in at $149? just $10 more than what Barnes & Noble is charging for the Nook Touch, and what Amazon will charge for the ad-free version of the upcoming Kindle Touch. The Reader Wi-Fi is a slick piece of gear; just make sure you like the way Sony lets you download books first, because the Reader Store still needs plenty of work.?"

Hornettek Slipper U3 Hard Drive Docking Station Review @ DragonSteelMods
     Thu, Dec 15 2011 | 9:38P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hard drive docks have become as common as external enclosures and it seems everyone is making them. The docks out there all seem the same basic design, but the one I have today is very much different. For review today I have the Hornettek Slipper U3 HDD docking station. The name is interesting but fitting as you just literally slip your hard drive into the dock. The Slipper can use either 2.5? or 3.5? drives and is USB 3.0 capable for maximum transfer speeds. "

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.
