OCZ Technology Vertex 4 (Indilinx Everest 2) 256GB and 512GB SSD Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:17A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I find OCZ`s current situation similar to the early 1990`s 49ers. OCZ had a very good run with SandForce, winning best consumer SSD awards with both the Vertex 2 and a year later with Vertex 3. Just like Joe, the SandForce SF-2000 series is starting to look a little older and the young competition from other makers is starting to catch up. SandForce might offer the fastest controller to date, but that might not be the case starting next season. Before Steve Young was traded to the 49ers he played in Tampa Bay. There he had two horrible seasons, but everyone could see the talent including 49ers head coach Bill Walsh. Indilinx, in their later years as a separate company was not competitive with controllers from Intel and Samsung. In a sense OCZ traded to pick up Indilinx, mainly their RAM and peripherals product lines (they were actually just dropped). In their yearly product cycle OCZ was ready to release something new, something fresh, but their star quarterback SandForce was injured. OCZ had already released an impressive top to bottom lineup of products based on the SandForce technology so there weren`t any gaps to fill with SandForce based products."

OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB with Indilinx Controller @ ocaholic
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since OCZ has bought Indilinx, the manufacturer presented - with the Octane - an entry level SSD which offers an attractive price point. With the Vertex 4 OCZ releases their new performance SSD, which is based on the latest Indilinx IDX400M00-BC Controller. This is reason enough for us to be curious about how this thing is going to perform in our benchmark parcours. In this review we`re going to take a closer look at the 256 Gigabyte model which should good performance and at an attractive price point."

Corsair Vengeance M60
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few years Corsair has been rapidly expanding their reach into the enthusiast PC market from their roots as a simple memory manufacturer, getting into everything from cases and cooling to power supplies and speakers. Now, Corsair is flexing its retail muscles once again to go after the bread and butter of industry heavyweights Logitech and Razer, attacking them head-on with a new line of Vengeance gaming peripherals. I've already taken a look at Corsair's Vengeance 1500 headset and particularly enjoyed it, but how will their mice and keyboards stack up as first-generation products with fledgling drivers? To find out, I took an in-depth look at the Vengeance M60 and M90 mouse, two wildly different mice that cater to the FPS and MMO crowds with various differences and yet many similarities. Grab a soda and get comfortable; this review is rather long.

MSI Big Bang-XPower II Mainboard Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Extremely large size of this mainboard makes it incompatible with many system cases out there. However, it doesn’t really matter, because it is not intended for everyday work, but rather for extreme overclocking experiments and setting overclocking records, and in this case standard dimensions, nominal modes and power-saving technologies aren’t necessary.

OCZ Vertex 4 Indilinx 256GB & 512GB SSD Reviews @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So far, OCZ`s decision to acquire Indilinx seems to be paying off as their proprietary controller now ranks, in our eyes at least, as one of the best you can buy while others are still leveraging third party controllers. Having control of the components has its advantages, positively impacting both cost and quality control - both of which are supremely important in this competitive marketplace. The Indilinx Everest 2 controlled drives are really going to give the other large players, namely SandForce, Marvell, Samsung and Intel serious competition and the incentive to step up their game..."

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3: Advanced Entry-Level LGA 2011 Mainboard

This is a junior model in the line-up, but with a full feature set and unique peculiarities. Moreover, in some aspects it is even superior to some of the higher-end models, and its functionality is extended with a number of additional onboard controllers.

OCZ Vertex 4 512GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 8:57A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ`s Vertex series has been the de facto leader in the SSD market for the last few years and their new Vertex 4 is looking to continue that tradition. Equipped with the new Everest 2 controller and a relatively low price point, this new drive sure looks impressive but it will take more than just that to dislodge the entrenched SandForce competition. * *"

SSD REVIEW: Micron RealSSD P400e 6Gbps 200GB Enterprise SSD Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 7:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our SSD analysis today looks at the Micron RealSSD P400e SATA 3 enterprise SSD, a new entry with a new approach to integrating SSDs into the entry-level enterprise tier. The enterprise SSD market is segmenting into several layers that suit very different needs, and this entry level MLC based SSD looks to grab the mainstream customer market. Upper-echelon ultra high performance SSDs can command prices that are very prohibitive for the entry level crowd, and this is the void that the P400e looks to fill."

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.
