QNAP TS-420 review: 4-bay midrange NAS
     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 4:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the one hand QNAP has made a very versatile NAS device that has tons of software features and lots of connectors. The QTS 4.0 firmware is very comprehensive. The chassis is solid, and the build quality is good. On the other, the hardware inside isn't on the same level.

     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The "M" series motherboards from MSI have gained a lot of recognition recently being an upper quality not-so-high-priced motherboard for the computer hardware enthusiast. However while MSI brings us some of the best hardware you'll find on the current market seemingly goes a bit off course with firmware and software.

     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EA took the wraps off Battlefield 4 this past week, offering players a chance to experience a taste of what the game offers via an early beta. We've spent time with the game, tested its early performance, and come back to report the findings. AMD, of course, has been talking up the Battlefield 4 combination with a vengeance, highlighting the features of its new Mantle API and close partnership with DICE, Battlefield 4's developer. At the same time, however, this is just a beta -- while we'll be checking performance and commenting on game changes, this isn't a full review of the final product...

Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro
     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's really no arguing the fact that Microsoft slipped with its first generation Surface strategy, but rather than wave the white flag, the Redmond outfit picked itself up, dusted off its britches and listened to user feedback. Today, in New York, Microsoft held a press event unveiling its new Surface 2 products and the usual superlatives apply -- thinner, lighter, faster, better. Microsoft says that Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro both benefit from "significant updates." Among them are improvements to processing power, better battery life, display and camera resolution upgrades, and a niftier Kickstand that now sports dual angles, making it more comfortable to use on your lap or desk. We were on hand at Microsoft's unveiling in New York to see its new slates in action...

Microsoft Surface Pro 2 Plays 6K RAW Video Footage
     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft's Corporate VP of Surface, Panos Panay had his work cut out for him at the company's Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 launch event on Monday. Microsoft needed compelling product demos to showcase their new hardware against the current backdrop of stiff competition of alternative platforms and products from Google and Apple. So, obviously the first thing they did was call upon their old friend Intel way back at the design stage, empowering their Surface Pro 2 slate with a dual-core Haswell 4th generation Core i5-4200U processor. And with Intel's latest HD 4400 series graphics engine on board the Core i5-4200U at their disposal, Microsoft was looking for ways to showcase Surface Pro 2's multimedia performance, so they then called upon some of their friends at RED Camera... As Panos notes, 6K RAW footage offers nine times the resolution of standard 1080p HD video. Now, we know Intel's Haswell HD Graphics core already supported 4K HD video playback but could it handle 6K video?

Ready For Windows 8
     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 12:00P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Logitech revealed its new Wireless All-in-One Keyboard TK820 last month, it immediately caught my eye. After upgrading my home theater PC to Windows 8, I've often thought it would be nice to take advantage of some of the new gesture controls while browsing the web and using my HTPC from the comfort of my couch. I looked at keyboards a little bit after upgrading but hadn't found quite what I wanted so I put the idea of getting a different keyboard on hold. When I was given the chance to test the TK820 for myself, I jumped at the opportunity and hoped this could be the keyboard I had been searching for...
