CM Storm Recon Mouse with Skorpion Bungee Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 11:25P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CM Storm Recon Mouse uses an Avago 3090 optical sensor similar to the CM Storm Spawn mouse. The CM Storm Recon however is designed to be ambidextrous with its symmetrical design, including left and right back/forward side buttons. The surface of the CM Storm Recon is rubber coated for extra grip while the buttons utilize high-grade Japanese Omron micro-switches for longevity and responsiveness. Additional features such as lift-off distance adjustment, LED customization, macro recording, polling rate change, button re-assignments, and profile management can be unlocked upon installing the Recon software. The CM Storm Skorpion on the other hand is a mouse bungee for holding mouse cords in place and prevents cable dragging while playing. The CM Storm Skorpion has an iron core for weighted stability and three legs with rubber soles positioned in a wide stance for desktop grip. Both the CM Storm Recon mouse and CM Storm Skorpion carry a 2-year warranty."

SSD NEWS: Kingston 200GB SSDNow E100 Enterprise SSD Review - Kingston Gets Back to the Enterprise
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 6:30P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston, like other memory manufacturers, wanted to get into the solid state storage game a few years back. At the time they chose to partner with Intel, offering their own label on the chipmaker`s first gen SSDs like enterprise-oriented X25-E. Eventually, they branched out with new controllers from Toshiba and JMicron, resulting in a bewildering array of options. More recently, Kingston switched to second generation SandForce ASICs for the original HyperX, eventually leading to a host of SF-powered offerings for consumer and businesses alike. Part of what made the original HyperX such an interesting product was its use of 5,000PE cycle-rated flash. Due to their longstanding relationship with Intel, Kingston was able to get their hands on Intel`s special stash of 25nm NAND rated at 5K PE cycles for the first HyperX. That drive, and the more value conscious 3K model which followed, went on to become incredibly popular with enthusiasts. Now with the E100, Kingston has come full circle. Unlike Kingston`s first enterprise drive based on the X25-E, there isn`t a trace of Intel flash or controllers to be found. Unlike the client driven SandForce products that make up the rest of Kingston`s solid state drive portfolio, the E100 is targeted strictly at the enterprise market. Using 30,000 PE cycle-rated Toshiba eMLC and an enterprise-class SF-2582 flash storage processor, the E100 brings both endurance and enterprise features to the table."

RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-3640SU3 USB 3.0 Quad Bay Enclosure Review
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 5:28P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nowadays most people own quite large digital media collections and that is the main reason behind the need we have for large capacity hard disk drives (aside for backup purposes always).However single external HDDs are not really the solution to that since they do take quite a bit of space and if you get more than just one you will also have to use more than just one connection port (if you want to have access to all of them at the same time). External docking stations do work well and in some occasions even better than many enclosures out there but with such solutions your drives are unprotected and again most only have two docks. Now there aren`t really that many external enclosures available currently out there with more than just 2 bays and the ones that are available are quite expensive for consumer use but lucky for us the market grows each day and so RaidSonic decided to release their very own ICY BOX IB-3640SU3 USB 3.0 4 bay JBOD external enclosure."
