QPAD 5K LE Review
     Sat, Jul 07 2012 | 9:00A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 5K L.E, as the name suggests is a limited edition version of the 5K. The big selling point of the 5k L.E is the next generation gaming-grade laser sensor hailing from the halls of Avago - the A9800. The new laser allows a ridiculously high DPI of 8200 CPI capable of delivering a sample rate of 12000 fps. Not the highest we have sampled I grant you. The SteelSeries Sensei delivered an effective 11400 CPI however this CPI was achieved by the on-board ARM processor meaning the Sensei's physical limit was in fact 5700 CPI. The QPAD 5K L.E betters this and hits a massive 8200 CPI without the need for additional processing. So while the QPAD has the highest physical CPI, the Sensei the highest theoretical CPI, the 5K L.E can hit it's CPI without degradation of accuracy and precision.

Netgear WNDR4500 N900 Wireless Router Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 12:20P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our experience with the Netgear N900 router is that it handles complex traffic very nicely and is really transparent on your network. We never had any issues at all with trying to stream movies or music. This included 1080p movie files as well as FLAC and other lossless music files. After we tried to overload the network we did notice that WMM does make a difference in your connection speed so if there is one recommendation we can give to users out there, it is to check your routers firmware and enable WMM. Many manufacturers will try and use the functionality of WMM or QoS and market these tools as unique to their own brand, but you should know and recognize that many routers and most newer WiFi adapters support this function already. However, most people dont know that they need to actually turn it on..."

We all love our NAS. If you don't have one yet, you will love your NAS. Sometimes picking the right one for you may be difficult. Really, it all boils down to what you need. In the last showdown, we matched QNAP vs Drobo, in this NAS Showdown we are going to pit QNAP against Thecus in a cage match to help you determine who deserves your money.

Asus Transformer Pad TF300 Review
     Sat, Jun 30 2012 | 12:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asus' Eee Pad Transformer launched with much fanfare last year as it bridged the gap between tablets and netbooks via its keyboard docking station. At the time, we thought the Eee Pad Transformer was a great bargain, but that value was slightly diminished later in 2011 when Asus unveiled its $620 Eee Pad Transformer Prime. Although the Transformer Prime's price increase was technically justifiable, it pushed the upper budgets of some shoppers. Addressing that issue, Asus has released a more affordable yet still powerful version called the Transformer Pad TF300T, equipped with the same Tegra 3 SoC and priced at $550 with a docking station.

Netgear ReadyNAS Duo V2: Fast and affordable
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:11P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A read speed of more than 90 MB/s, a solid metal case, room for two drives and even USB 3.0? It sounds like a fairly expensive NAS, but in the case of the ReadyNAS Duo V2 it's actually not too pricy. First we'd like to commend Netgear for giving this entry-level model such a professional high-end look. The NAS sits in a solid, metal chassis, with a front panel behind which the metal trays for the disks are located. Based on ARM hardware, this Netgear ReadyNAS performs really well.

[Tech ARP] How To Unlock Huawei 3G Modems
     Tue, Jun 19 2012 | 10:32A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From a user`s perspective, it makes sense to reuse a 3G modem. Not only is it environmentally-friendly, it may help you save some money if the new service provider allows you to sign up without buying a new modem from them. In some cases, you might even want to use the older modem because it`s faster or better in some way. So after discontinuing my Maxis mobile broadband account, I decided to reuse the Huawei E1762 modem for my DiGi Broadband account. All I needed to do was pull out the old Maxis SIM card and insert the DiGi SIM card. Of course, that`s supposed to be the case. The reality is the Huawei E1762 modem was locked to the Maxis network. So this error message will pop-up if a non-Maxis SIM card is installed..."

Origin EON17-S Gaming Notebook Review: Opening A Can Of RAID
     Sun, Jun 17 2012 | 9:02A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Origin EON17-S is, from a performance standpoint, one hell of a piece of kit. What sets the laptop apart is not the Extreme Edition processor or even the GTX 675M (which is fast, but also obtainable elsewhere). No, the real honors should be given to the pair of Corsair hard drives. Its incredible how quickly software loads on this machine. Of course, most other companies will let you configure solid state drives in RAID 0, as well. But they usually dont let you replace the optical drive with a mechanical hard drive or offer a third hard drive option. Thats where the EON17-S stands out. You can enjoy insane speeds and still have plenty of room for your files."

Netgear Universal WiFi Range Extender WN3000RP Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 1:47A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That is where wireless repeaters or range extenders come into play, they allow you to extend your wireless coverage to distances greater than your access point at home can do on it`s own. Lately the trend from many consumer network manufactures is bringing to market these range extenders. Today we were able to review one of the new 802.11N range extenders from Netgear, the Netgear Universal WiFi Range Extender WN3000RP. *"

450mbps routers reviewed: 14 of the fastest models
     Tue, May 29 2012 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the Consumer Electronics Show in January of this year featured demonstrations of the next generation 802.11ac technology, we are still in the midst of a transition within the current 802.11n standard. After the 300 Mbps and 150 Mbps versions, manufacturers are now promoting '450N' models which promise a theoretical throughput of 450 Mbps. Obviously there is an element of marketing involved here, but even so it will be interesting to see how these product perform when compared to their elder 300N brethren. In order to get a good overview, we tried to get all currently available 450 Mbps routers into our lab to put these through our usual rigorous tests.

Icron USB Ranger 2211 Range Extender @ Benchmark Reviews
     Mon, May 28 2012 | 11:49P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Everything from Rocket Launchers to Dancing Clowns are available as a USB peripheral these days. Most of us keep our USB devices within arm`s length, but there are times where a little more distance is desirable. That`s the case for the average consumer; the commercial or industrial user has a tougher life. They have Rocket Launchers and Dancing Clowns too, but they`re the full-sized versions. You can bet the computers which control them are located more than 5 meters away. That`s the reason for today`s article; what to do when your USB device is 300 feet away from your PC? You find a device like the Icron USB Ranger 2211, and a big spool of Cat 5 Ethernet cable, and you hook it up, no problem! Just so you can be sure that there won`t be any problems, Benchmark Reviews put the latest USB extender from Icron Technologies on the test bench. We also look under the hood, and show you the technology that`s inside."

TP-LINK TL-WR700N 150Mbps Wireless N Mini Pocket Router Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, May 26 2012 | 11:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year we reviewed a couple TP-LINK products and were extremely impressed with them. TP-LINKs latest portable router is the TL-WR700N 150Mbps Wireless N Mini Pocket Router. Its max wireless speed is rated a bit lower than standard routers, but its feature-set doesnt suffer. The TL-WR700N supports multiple modes including AP, Repeater, Client, Bridge, and can function as a basic router. Has TP-LINK tried to pack too much into a small device? Or will they blow us away again? Check out the full review to find out."
