[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - CPUID Maximum Value Limit
     Sun, Nov 11 2012 | 8:49A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *CPUID Maximum Value Limit* setting."

Jabra SOLEMATE The Ultimate Portable Speaker Review
     Sat, Nov 10 2012 | 8:07P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During the past 2 years Ive seen many companies release wireless speakers for use with smartphones and tablets by using the typical Bluetooth connection (and rarely via Wi-Fi). However in most occasions these speakers are not to be taken seriously due to the fact they most of them have but a single speaker (monophonic) and their audio levels are not much better than those of your smartphone/tablet. Sure there are quite a few exceptions out there in the market including the very good Audyssey Dock Air (Wi-Fi) and several other high quality ones by JBL and Klipsch but the price range of those is way far from what most people can afford for a portable wireless speaker. Well according to Jabra their latest SOLEMATE wireless portable speaker hits the sweet spot between performance and price and so we`ve been using it for a period of almost 20 days to see whether or not their claims have any base at all."

[DreamWare Computers] Cloud Computing Architecture: Making the Best Decision for Your Small Office
     Sat, Nov 10 2012 | 3:33P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cloud computing has been around for a while now, but because of the initial startup investments, a lot of small businesses have not yet made the jump to this new technology. In some cases, this may be a wise decision, because the tools and resources the cloud offers might not be necessary in such a small office. However, the cloud has made it possible for SMBs to access powerful tools and services enough that its actually possible for them to compete on some level with much larger companies"

Mushkin 7mm Chronos Deluxe 120GB SSD Review @HiTech Legion
     Sat, Nov 10 2012 | 11:46A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
/Renowned memory manufacturer Mushkin is answering the call with the 7mm Chronos Deluxe SSD line with available cpapcities from 60-480GB. In this article we will be looking at the Mushkin 7mm Chronos Deluxe 120GB MKNSSDCR120GB-DX7, which at 120GB has been the most popular recent size among consumers. While thinner, the 7mm Chronos Deluxe retains all of the features and technology that made the standard Chronos Deluxe a top performer. The 7mm Chronos Deluxe uses the SandForce 2281 controller paired with high speed synchronous MLC NAND to achieve blistering 560 MB/s read and 515 MB/s write speeds with 90,000 IOPS (4K random write, 4K aligned) using a SATA III connection. Though slim, the 7mm Chronos Deluxe still shows off shock resistance to 1500G and a temperature tolerance from 0-70 C for reliability in stressful environments./"

Need For Speed Most Wanted (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com

Posted by: STAFF
Need For Speed Most Wanted (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Criterion Games were responsible for 2010s Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, widely regarded as the best NFS game to date.

ECS Golden Board Z77H2-AX Z77 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 3:20P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From a stock performance standpoint, I couldnt have been happier with the ECS Z77H2-AX. It performed admirably in all the benchmarks with solid results in both the gaming and non-gaming tests. The real Achilles heel of the board was its lack of overclocking performance. Its lack of performance in the USB 2.0 and 3.0 hard drive tests remains puzzling as well."

Thinksound MS01 8mm In-Ear Monitor Earphones Review
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 1:51P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We all know that MP3/4 players, tablets, cellular phones and basically pretty much every portable device that is capable of reproducing media files comes with earphones bundled in the same box (even tape/CD/MD players had one) which are just but basic/low-cost pairs. For good or bad to most people that specific pair will be more than just enough (especially since it comes at almost no cost) but audio enthusiasts and generally people who always want the best they can afford will certainly search the market for something better with the name of one of the well-known manufacturers in the field such as Sennheiser, Sony and others. Honestly that was also the path i used to take up to around 5-6 years ago but after having tested many earphones by quite a few of the lesser known manufacturers i no longer pay much attention on brand names but rather on the product itself. Thinksound is one such manufacturer and ever since i received and tested their TS02+Mic earset roughly two years ago i consider them to be amongst the very few manufacturers that actually hit the sweet spot between audio quality and price without sacrificing build quality, quite the opposite actually. So for the past month we`ve been testing their brand new MS01 8mm in-ear monitor with passive noise isolation to see if it walks on the same successful path as the TS02+Mic."

Apple iPad Mini (Wi-Fi) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 1:21P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How much are apps worth to you? How about $120? If you want those iPad-exclusive apps and price is no object, then no other small-screen tablet will do. Beautifully made, slim, and light, the iPad mini packs precisely the power of an iPad 2 into a tablet you`ll actually want to carry around."
