Acer Aspire S3-391-6046 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 3:52P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer Aspire S3-391-6046 proves that you don`t have to start at $899 to get a decent ultrabook. To keep the price down, it uses an older second-generation Intel Core i3 processor, but that CPU is still faster than the AMD E series APU, Intel Atom, or Celeron CPU in other inexpensive laptops. It`s also an inexpensive way to introduce your family to Windows 8 and that operating system`s radically new interface."

AMD Catalyst vs. Open-Source Gallium3D Driver Performance
     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 11:54A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this article is a large OpenGL performance comparison looking at the frame-rates in different Linux games for different AMD Radeon Linux graphics cards when running the stock Ubuntu 12.10 operating system (Mesa 9.0 + Linux 3.5), the Catalyst Linux driver (fglrx 9.0.2) as found in the Ubuntu Quantal archive, and then when running the very latest Radeon Git code: The Linux 3.7 kernel, Mesa 9.1-devel, and xf86-video-ati 7.0.99 Git."

Patriot Gauntlet 320 External Wireless Hard Drive
     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 11:23A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are some limitations that you might want to consider including the inability to access network-based devices when using the pass through Internet capability the Gauntlet provides. Also, data transfer performance on the wireless connectivity that the Gauntlet provides seemed pretty low, even with the 802.11n support."

Thats a bold claim from a newcomer to the scene, so lets see if it really lives up to it."

Acer Aspire S7-391-6810 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Nov 26 2012 | 11:54A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer Aspire S7-391 is a new Windows 8-toating ultraportable that features an eye-catching, stunningly thin design. It also has a touch screen, so it makes complete use of the new Windows 8 operating system. We did like the performance the S7 offered but battery life could have been better."

Paragon Hard Disk Manager 12 Pro Review - BCCHardware
     Mon, Nov 26 2012 | 11:23A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Paragon Hard Disk Manger 12 Professional software is pretty much exactly that. It`s professional and works as advertised in everything we tried. I know that no software is perfect, but this came about as close as anyone could get when it comes to backing up, moving and managing your drives and more. For drive copying, image creating, archiving and more the HDM12 suite performs like a champ. . ."

Plextor M5 Pro 256GB SSD review
     Mon, Nov 26 2012 | 3:18A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,In this article we test, benchmark and review the Plextor M5 Pro series SSD. Plextor has developed this product alongside a marvel controller tied to 256GB of NAND flash memory it is amongst the fastest drives we have ever tested. We sure have lots to talk about alright. The 256GB models have sutained read/write levels of 540 MB/sec and 450 MB/sec respectively. And with 4K random write performance estimated at 86,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second) it`s dressed to impress alright. Have a peek, after which we`ll dive into the technology behind it and obviously we`ll present you a nice phat performance overview."

SSD NEWS: Super Talent USB3 Express RC8 100GB Flash Drive Review - Windows To Go Tested and Certified
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 3:56P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was just over a year ago that we reviewed the Super Talent 50GB RC8 `SandForce Driven` USB 3 Flash Drive and made the call of it being the fastest flash drive on the planet. Our prediction then was that it would be a natural progression that, soon enough, we would be booting complete systems off of just this type of media. Imagine, simply plugging your flash drive in and accessing your desktop environment anywhere. Our analysis today looks at the Super Talent USB3 Express RC8 100GB Flash Drive and, not only does it easily command bragging rights as the most powerful large capacity Flash Drive on the planet but also, the RC8 is one of the very few certified for the Microsoft Enterprise `Windows To Go` Operating Environment."

SteelSeries Black Ops 2 Peripherals @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 3:56P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its that time of year again, the latest Call of Duty offering was just released and I (and most of the LanOC staff) has been gaming it up. Knowing that we were planning on playing, when SteelSeries introduced their Black Ops 2 peripherals, I quickly hit them up to get a set to use while we played Black Ops 2 at launch. Our coverage on the game itself should be up next week after a weekend packed full of gaming, but for now you can see what SteelSeries has to offer while you wait."

Thermaltake Armor Revo Gene Mid-Tower - BCCHardware
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 3:56P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The left side of the Armor Revo Gene has some great features. One is the large, clear plastic window that allows you to see your hardware. The angular clear window is surrounded by rivets which give the case a nice industrial look. The second feature which I`m surprised you don`t really see too often is the headset holder. At first I thought that the headset holder could easily snap off and I would end up with an eyesore. This is not the case. It seems to have been designed to just simply pop off if you accidentally hit it too hard. . ."

Packard Bell Dot S Review - XSReviews
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 11:23A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While netbooks have fallen out of the public eye, the victim of tablets` sudden success, the platform is still being developed and manufacturers are still producing new models. One of these is the unit that we`ll be looking at today, the Packard Bell Dot S. The new netbook includes a recently-released Intel Atom Cedar Trail dual-core processor and an interesting look, but will that be enough to set it apart from the pack? Let`s have a look! A link to the article would be much appreciated."
