Iconic Hardware: Products that Made a Dent on the PC Industry
     Wed, Apr 23 2014 | 11:19A | Hardware | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What makes a product iconic? Design, functionality, styling, and innovation will get you part of the way there, but the true tests are how these products distinguished themselves from their competitors, how widely those traits were imitated by those competitors, and how history remembers their status. Here are some products that left their mark on the PC industry, whether in the form of full systems, CPUs, graphics cards, motherboards, cases or peripherals.

LG Nexus 5 Review @ ocaholic
     Wed, Jan 01 2014 | 8:59A | Hardware | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past years LG have had the rare chance to gather experience building Google Nexus Smartphones. The Korean company are the makers of the Nexus 4, but sharp tongues would claim that it was just a cut-down version of the Optiumus G. It might be that they were right, since LG have now made the Nexus 5, a high-end smartphone that sports a surprisingly reasonable price tag."

Nest Learning Thermostat Review
     Mon, Dec 30 2013 | 4:01P | Hardware | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like many of you, I never really gave much thought to something as basic as my thermostat. So long as it kicked on the heater or air conditioner when I needed it to, I was happy. I'll admit I was a bit intrigued when I read about the Nest Learning Thermostat back in 2011 but even then, the thought of purchasing one never really crossed my mind.

CORRECTION: ROCCAT Hiro Gaming Mousepad Review @ HiTech Legion
     Tue, Jul 30 2013 | 4:07P | Hardware | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Roccat Hiro uses a water resistant vulcanized silicone surface that is more durable than typical cloth mouse pads. The Roccat Hiro`s surface is also power-bonded to the rubber base with smooth, rounded edges that will not fray over time. The textured surface provides flexible movement options for speed and control players while the rubber base holds the Roccat Hiro in place while gaming. The Roccat Hiro measures 350 x 250 x 2.5mm providing plenty of room for different mouse sensitivity settings and player preferences."

Patriot Aero 1TB Wireless Mobile Drive
     Mon, Jun 24 2013 | 9:02A | Hardware | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given the compact design, which manages to accommodate not just a 2.5” 1TB hard drive but also a battery supporting up to 6 hours run time, we feel the Patriot Aero is a sound investment. Particularly given a standard external 1TB USB 3.0 drive is priced around $80 - $110. The wireless support and mobile apps make the Aero an ideal solution for avid media buffs, whether it be for work, travel or just relaxing with friends on a weekend.

Posted by: STAFF
The 120GB Samsung 840 Series SSD features the powerful 8-channel MDX controller and TLC NAND. While this value SSD comes at a very good price, it also features much lower speeds than its larger capacity brethren. We put this value SSD through our suite of steady state tests to see if it can pass muster.

ICY DOCK MB994SP-4S Mobile Rack Review

"On the table today is a 2.5” drive rack by Icy Dock. The MB994SP-4S can hold four 2.5” drives, and fit all of them in a single 5.25” bay in your desktop or server.

The chassis of the rack is 100% aluminum, which gives a solid feel and a clean look. It also has dual 40mm exhaust fans to keep the higher-RPM drives cool. Read on to find out more."

Synology DiskStation DS2411+ review: 12 disk
     Mon, May 21 2012 | 11:40P | Hardware | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Are you a dedicated collector in need of a safe place to store your data? Or perhaps you have a company that needs to safely store large amounts of data in an easily accessible manner? Then Synology could have the perfect solution for you with its DS2411+, a NAS for 12 hard drives at an average price of around £1145. £1145 is not pocket change of course, but if you think about it this amounts to less than £100 per bay, which puts the price inbetween the DS212j and the DS212. If you need the storage space now or in the near future, then the DS2411+ is not a bad solution based on the price. Provided of course that you have £1145 to spend.

     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 3:37P | Hardware | PermaLink

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
