Zotac Zbox HD Blu-Ray All-in-One Mini-PC
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 1:12A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Not everyone wants to build their own HTPC, and despite the relative small size of most HTPC cases compared to a full tower for example, they're still fairly large next to most other electronic devices in a home theater environment. The Zotac Zbox on the other hand, is a fully functional HTPC in a very slim size; about the same as the average netbook. Offering a choice of barebone or pre-configured hardware, the model we have for review today includes the Intel Atom D525 dual-core CPU, nVidia ION2 graphics, 250Gb hard drive, 2Gb of memory and a slot-loading Blu-Ray drive. Add to that Gigabit wired and 802.11n wireless networking, 6-in-1 card reader, HDMI, USB3 and eSATA, and you've got a huge amount of functionality packed into one tiny device."

Sapphire Edge Mini PC Review
     Mon, Apr 11 2011 | 6:18P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Well here’s an alternative to the HTPC and lounge media center, possibly the smallest full scale PC around: the Sapphire Edge Mini PC. It’s about the size of a DVD case and comes packing HDMI out, dual core atom CPU, a 512 MB nVidia ION 2 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 250GB of storage and gigabit ethernet. Should make for an interesting combination. Let’s see how it performs."

Core i5-2520QM and Asus' K53E 15-Inch Notebook - The HH Review
     Sat, Apr 09 2011 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Sandy Bridge wrinkles firmly tucked away, Intel is continuing to flesh out their mobile offering with a new, more moderately priced dual-core CPU that brings all of their latest technologies to bear in a 2.53GHz chip called the Core i5-2520QM. With Turbo Boost technology available for busts of performance on demand, this four-thread capable CPU should be a popular configuration in the midrange class of multimedia notebooks. The Asus K53E was the vehicle of choice that Intel went with for our testing and evaluation requirements here today and it's a looker.

Gateway DX4320-45
     Thu, Apr 07 2011 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Gateway DX4320-45 exists as a middle child between the "lower end" small form factor (SFF) SX series, and the high-end gaming-oriented FX series. Like a stereotypical middle child, it's way too easy to look at this desktops shortcomings in comparison to its siblings, and that's the problem.”

Posted by: STAFF
“We're looking at a new gaming surface / mousepad from Mionix, the Propus 380. It sports a very interesting designs, as it has characteristics of both a speed mat and a control mat. Normally we've seen hybrid gaming surfaces to be rather disappointing, so let's take a closer look at the Propus 380 and see if it can succeed where others have failed.”

In Win Buc Computer Case Review
     Fri, Mar 18 2011 | 4:47P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With good cooling performance from three included fans and an innovative front panel design, In Win's BUC chassis is an interesting mid-tower chassis that also includes several innovative features and a blacked-out interior and rear panel. The fit and finish of the BUC is very good, but the relatively thin metal used and the breakout design of the bay covers require some extra care when doing an install."

Sapphire EDGE-HD Mini PC Review
     Tue, Mar 08 2011 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The second I pulled the EDGE-HD out of the package I fell in love with it. The small stature which comes in at 19.3cm tall, 14.8cm in length and a skinny 2.2cm in width makes for an extremely tiny PC that comes in at only 530 grams. Based around the Intel Atom D510 CPU which comes in at 1.66GHz, you find yourself feeling a little dirty looking at a Sapphire product that houses a 512MB NVIDIA ION 2 setup inside. On the RAM front we've got 2GB of DDR2 and storage comes in the form of a 2.5" 250GB SATA hard drive. Connection to your network comes in the form of both 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet and 802.11 b/g/n wireless. Inside the package there's not a lot, but at the same time there's everything you'll need. We've got a stand, manual and power connector, while cable wise we've got a HDMI cable and HDMI to DVI convertor. We've also got a little Sapphire USB Pen Drive which carries with it the goodies you'll need once you're up and running."

HP Mini 210-2180

Posted by: STAFF
“The HP Mini 210-2180 is a netbook that comes in many stylish colors, has a larger-than-average keyboard and has huge battery life. While the internal specifications aren't the latest and greatest, it will still provide average computing performance for the average user.”

SilverStone Precision PS05 Computer Case Review
     Sun, Feb 20 2011 | 12:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past few weeks here at APH Networks, there has been quite a few articles on SilverStone products. Many users who have followed along would have noticed we had gone through two separate articles on SilverStone products alone over the past month or so. Today, we are finally on our the last of our trio, and plan to go out with a bang. (Not literally. We're not blowing anything up.) We chose the biggest object to review out of the three, just to give it the incremental quality -- or at least quantity -- vibe. SilverStone is well known for their excellence in the computing field, with products ranging from fans such as the SilverStone Air Penetrator SST-AP121-L, power supplies such as the SilverStone Strider Gold ST75F-G 750W, as well as cases such as the Precision PS05 we are reviewing today. Just imagine how many articles we could go through in a year. Anywho, for our final part of the SilverStone trio of articles, we chose to end it off with a case. The SilverStone Precision PS05 is the newest revision of the Precision series. Although it is the value line for SilverStone, even the value series promises "thoughtful details from high-end chassis designs", according to the manufacturer. That is one bold statement to make for such a product in its intended market, but we trust SilverStone knows what they are talking about, since they are known for making excellent stuff in this area. So let us dive right into this review, and see how well this case implements "details from high-end chassis designs".

Sapphire Edge-HD Mini PC Review
     Sat, Feb 19 2011 | 12:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On our test bench is a product from Sapphire which contains a NVIDIA GPU... yes, NVIDIA. The Edge-HD is a small ATOM/ION system which Sapphire say could be the smallest PC in the world. We will be putting it though a number of real world tests which include Blu-Ray playback, GPU media encoding and power use to find out whether it meets the needs of the average consumer."

Dell Inspiron One 2305
     Thu, Feb 17 2011 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Dell Inspiron One 2305 (Blu-ray) is a solid all-in-one media desktop PC, but it lacks the applications to make it a worthwhile touch-screen computer. It does have a touch screen, Blu-ray, and competitive performance numbers, which makes it certainly a viable alternative—especially if you're looking for a primary media-center PC.”

Sapphire Edge Mini PC
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I truly believe that Sapphire has found a sweet spot for media pc's. The Edge Mini PC really impressed me with it's design, performance and feature set. All my life computers have been getting smaller and smaller; but all of that didn't prepare me for the Edge. An enclosure the size of a paperback book containing a more-than-capable media PC was somewhat alien to me. Despite its tiny proportions, the design really catches your eye. Sleek curves and the wavy stand ensure it will fit in with any entertainment center. Connectivity, however, was sort of a mixed-bag. Though you're supplied with 4 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and built in Wireless-N the lack of a camera card reader was quite surprising."

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.
