Silverstone DS321 Dual Drive USB3.0 Enclosure
     Mon, Nov 28 2011 | 5:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve always seen Silverstone as having a somewhat humble drive enclosure line compared to the size of their other product lineups, for example, their computer cases. However, in the last year their storage line has seen tremendous growth. Silverstone has released some USB 3.0 enclosures, a great NAS enclosure, and even a few 3.5 enclosures too. One of those 3.5 enclosures happens to be the dual-drive USB 3.0 equipped DS321, which I have here today."

Migrate Away from Windows Home Server Drive Extender Guide @MissingRemote
     Mon, Nov 28 2011 | 4:59P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As previously noted, I`m working on upgrading the server in my house, which currently runs Windows Home Server (v1). While I don`t plan to use Windows Home Server 2011 for anything but backups, this guide should assist others who are thinking about how to upgrade WHS to WHS 2011, particularly migrating all your data out of the drive pool. This process will also work if you intend to move to any alternative drive pool solution, such as FlexRAID, unRAID, FreeNAS, or the couple of 3rd party add-ins for WHS 2011. To prepare for the move away from the WHS Drive Extender (DE) technology, since it was so unceremoniously ripped out of WHS 2011, the very first step I needed to take was to discontinue the use of DE for, at least, SageTV. The rest of the data, such as music, photos, and other documents take up but a fraction of the space, so the bulk of the work will be getting all my SageTV recordings and ripped videos out of DE and into individual folders/drives. *"

NZXT Tempest 410 PC Case @ Pro-Clockers
     Mon, Nov 28 2011 | 4:21P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT`s Tempest 410. If it`s a windstorm you`re looking for, I think I have found one for you. It is a rather unassuming case, solid black, harsh lines, with dark mesh grills covering dark dust filters. The only thing that brings any sort of color to the case is the sliver of blue from the USB 3.0 port. Even its fans, while the blades are white, aren`t equipped with any colored LEDs."
