AVM FRITZ!Powerline 1000E Set Review
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 2:16P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Much like the never ending Intel VS AMD and NVIDIA VS ATI/AMD disagreements there's no visible end to the wired/wireless discussions that emerge all the time both online and live. As for me well most of you know by now that i always prefer wired connectivity when possible so i hardly ever use WiFi while at home or at the office (not if i can help it anyways) so i do everything either via regular cables (which i make sure are not easily seen) or by using powerline adapters. Using cables however (especially in plain sight) is not for everyone and certainly not for most houses so the obvious and lowest-cost course of action for casual users is to use WiFi. Still Powerline adapters are gaining momentum since people are beginning to realize that WiFi although very practical while on the go or away from home is not the best and only solution out there for a variety of reasons. AVM may not be one of the most recognized names in the industry but their FRITZ! line of network products is and today with us we have the latest FRITZ!Powerline 1000E Set.

Rosewill RNX-AC750RT Gigabit Router
     Mon, Mar 23 2015 | 12:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up our review of the Rosewill RNX-AC750RT Gigabit Wireless AC router. This router is the current flagship from Rosewill, and while it isn't the fastest router we've seen, it makes up for the wireless speed with an awesome feature set that allows you to do a lot of extras - without hacking up the firmware. The wireless is still pretty snappy at close to 250Mbps, but it falls behind other products that are much more expensive. For price and performance, it's pretty hard to beat, but you should read our review for all the details.

TRENDnet TV-IP310PI Outdoor 3 MP PoE Day
     Thu, Mar 12 2015 | 7:22P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you like watching movies like i do then you've probably heard several references to a time when people could leave the keys in the ignition of their cars and their doors wide open and worry not about something bad happening to them. Well i can't say that things were ever like that where i grew up but crime was almost non-existent back then. Today as you all know things have changed for the worse so people are always trying new things to keep themselves, their families and their belongings safe. For example several people here have placed steel bars around their windows, some have equipped themselves with baseball bats while others have invested in multi-lock security doors and complete house alarms. There are some people like us however who have chosen to install IP cameras to ensure that nothing bad happens, at least not without them knowing about it. Today our review is about one such IP camera and more specifically the latest TV-IP310PI Outdoor 3 MP PoE Day/Night Network Camera by our old friends over at TRENDnet.

The Z97-Pro WiFi AC from ASUS belongs to the manufacturer's Classic-Series and therefore it comes with a black PCB and champagne-colored heatsinks.

Intel NUC5i5RYK Broadwell-U Mini-PC Review http://hothardware.com/reviews/intel
     Sun, Mar 08 2015 | 12:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel recently released its latest generation of NUC small form factor systems, based on the company’s low-power Broadwell-U series processors. The primary advantages of Intel’s 5th Generation Core Series Broadwell-U-based processors are better performance-per-watt, stronger integrated graphics, and a smaller footprint, all things that are perfectly suited to the NUC (Next Unit of Computing) products. We got our hands on a Core i5-powered version dubbed the NUC5i5RYK. To be more specific, this little machine is packing a Core i5-5250U processor with on-die Intel HD 6000 series graphics. The system also sports built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, M.2 SSD support, and a host of other features...

Netgear D6300 AC1600 Dual Band Gigabit Modem Router Review
     Sun, Mar 08 2015 | 12:00P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nothing stays still in the electronics and computer industries at least not for long so something better always emerges not long after even the best model out there has rolled out of the factory. Of course that has its pros and cons since on one hand prices of early models get sliced making them a lot more affordable for mainstream consumers and/or manufacturers (if we're talking about components) but on the other hand you never get to have the best out there, not for long. Because of that it's quite unfortunate that manufacturers haven't focused much in the production of good ADSL/ADSL2+ modem/routers and that's actually something that has been in my mind for many years especially since ADSL/ADSL2+ is still the primary connection type via which people access the internet in many countries including Greece. Well Netgear always seems to come to the rescue with their solutions like the D6300 AC1600 Dual Band Gigabit Modem Router which we've been thoroughly testing for quite some time now.

Trendnet Powerline 1200Mbps AV2 Adapter Kit

Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up our review of the Trendnet TPL-420E2K Powerline 1200Mbps AV2 kit. This is very speedy kit that gets great performance thanks to MIMO (multi-in, multi-out) features and is by far the fastest kit we've seen to date. It's faster than many wireless networks and doesn't have the same interference issues to deal with. If you need to really stretch your network, check our review for all the details.

It is currently the king of our wireless tests so make sure to check our review for all the details.

TP-LINK Archer C9 AC1900 Dual-Band Router Review
     Tue, Feb 17 2015 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If there’s one thing everyone always seems to need, it is a new wireless router. Whether you’re using the mediocre solutions provided by your cable company, or an aging bargain model that you picked up at Target, chances are you could use a new one. In fact, we’ll venture to say that your old wireless router is literally the cause of your life’s problems. – Okay, maybe not. But still, it definitely isn’t helping.

Linksys WRT1900AC AC1900 Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router
     Sat, Feb 14 2015 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whether we like or not (i don't much) cables will soon become a thing of the past in most applications something which has been made clear from all the recent and continuous advancements in the industry from the new Wi-Fi standards (802.11ac) and technologies (such as Beamforming) up to wireless media streaming (via Wi-Fi) and even wireless electricity which although so far is primarily used in the charging of portable devices (PowerMat & Qi) we might see it sooner rather than later in our homes used to power full sized electrical appliances. Now although we haven't focused on every new wireless product out in the market we have tested several of the latest 802.11ac compatible Wi-Fi modem/routers lately and today we will the current flagship of the Linksys dual-band smart Wi-Fi router line the highly acclaimed WRT1900AC.

D-Link DNS-320L
     Wed, Feb 04 2015 | 9:03A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The D-Link DNS-320L also has the option to sign up to MyDLink in order to access files from the NAS anywhere in the world. After a simple registration process, the web interface becomes available and is very easy to navigate, and download and upload files to the device. There is also a very useful "MyDlink Access-NAS" app on an Android or iPhone that can be downloaded for free, allowing backups of material from a phone or the ability to access files stored on the NAS. You can also stream music from the device straight to the 'phone with the built-in media player within the app (depending on the speed of the data connection) and even set the app to automatically save photos taken with your 'phone's camera straight to the NAS. Handy!"
