Synology DiskStation DS112+, DS112, DS112j

Posted by: STAFF
Starting with the entry-level Synology DiskStation DS112j which can be had for as little as $150 in diskless form, we were impressed with the performance of this device. Despite being equipped with just a single drive we saw strong performance in our download tests, delivering similar performance to the more expensive DS112 and QNAP TS-119P II.

TechSpot Laptop Avoidance and Buying Guide
     Mon, Jul 23 2012 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’re finally starting to see some action in the laptop market after a few stagnant months as manufacturers awaited the latest hardware to become available. Intel officially launched its Ivy Bridge architecture back in April, but it wasn’t until around May and June that the first laptops equipped with the new Core i chips started rolling out, bringing improved performance and battery life. When choosing the right laptop it all comes down to what you are willing to spend and what you plan to use it for. This guide will help you navigate through the countless options out there. As usual, we've narrowed down our favorite notebooks and grouped them into five different categories: ultraportables, business and workstations, desktop replacements, gaming, and budget-oriented machines.

The new Carbide Series 300R windowed version of the case of features a side window that gives PC builders the ability to demonstrate their modding skills while also showcasing internal PC components, such as Corsair's PC performance tuned Vengeance® DDR3 memory, GS Series™ power supplies, Hydro Series™ CPU coolers, and Air Series™ cooling fans.

SHUTTLE XS36V REVIEW
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.comShuttle's XS36V is a tightly integrated and fanless mini barebone. Just add some memory and storage for a complete system.

"The D2700 is Intel's most powerful Atom to date. It has a clock frequency of 2.13GHz, supports HyperThreading, and is manufactured on 32nm process. Also on-board is a 640 MHz PowerVR SGX545 GPU. It's actually a valid desktop replacement in most offices, small businesses, schools, and silence aficionados. With a power consumption of only 16W in idle mode, the XS36V is also very energy efficient."

     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few months, we have looked at plenty of Z77 based motherboards here at HH, covering a wide range of price points. But today we dive deep into one of the higher-end models available, the Gigabyte G1.Sniper3. The Gigabyte G1.Sniper3 supports Sandy and Ivy Bridge LGA 1155 processors and features support for up to 32GB of DDR3-2066 (OC) system memory.

ASUS P8Z77-V Premium @ Ocaholic

Posted by: STAFF
With the P8Z77-V Premium ASUS has a new flagship motherboard in their portfolio when it comes to their performance products. Malicious tongues would say that the ASUS engineers just took a P8Z77-V Deluxe and added a Thunderbolt interface to it. For us this is reason enough to check if this really was what they`ve done."

Samsung Galaxy S III 16GB Smartphone Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 9:37A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung Galaxy S III looked good on paper and once we got our hands on it in the real world we were by no means disappointed by the smartphone. The Galaxy S III is hands down one of the fastest phones that we have ever used in terms of both the processor performance and the 4G LTE network speeds. We`ve used dozens of Android based smartphones over the past year and none of them gave us the `wow` feeling we got when we started using the Galaxy S III..."

MSI R7770 Power Edition 1Gb @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 9:15A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have taken a look at HD 7770s from both Sapphire and XFX. But that only covers a small portion of the AMD GPU market, when I was given a chance to take a look at MSIs offering, I jumped at the chance. I know what to expect as far as performance, but what I am especially interested in is how MSI does their cards differently. MSI has a unique design that allows you to add a second fan on top of the original fan; I am really curious how this will work out. Lets take a look."

The XION XON-980-BK Mid-Tower fits the needs of a gamer. The XON-980-BK provides a functional and attractive case while maintaining the appropriate price point.

Corsair Carbide 300R is low in price
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Carbide case we are examining today is the 300R, the little brother of the 500R which was designed to have a smaller footprint while still offering the same level of features. The 300R achieves this by providing ample room for expansion, allowing this otherwise small chassis to accommodate nearly all high-end hardware currently available on the market."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
