ROCCAT Apuri Mouse Bungee / USB Hub Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Mar 29 2013 | 11:56A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are a serious gamer you are not using a wireless mouse. The main reasons are that it could lose battery or there would be some sort of interference with the wireless signal. While these might not be major issues when browsing the internet, but when you are about to get a headshot and it happens its a MAJOR problem. While wired mice are great they do have one drawback, the cord. In many cases the cord actually causes drag or may simply get in the way, which can affect your aim when gaming. The answer to this is what we know as a mouse bungee. It is a device that lifts this cord off of your desk which not only eliminates the drag, but gets it out of the way. The ROCCAT Apuri is not only a mouse bungee, but it also has 4 powered USB ports on it as well. Will you be adding this to your gaming arsenal? Read on as we take a look..."

The biggest difference between the two would be the introduction of 20nm NAND from Intel vice the 25nm modules used before."

SSD News: The SSD Review SSD Database Is Live!
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 12:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Have you ever looked for specific SSD information but couldn`t find it? Ever wondered who used such and such a controller or such and such memory? Ever sought out SSDs by a specific manufacturer, capacity, or even a specific memory type? By no means are we 100% complete just yet, but we think we might have a great SSD database that can help our readers out. Thanks to the hard work of Rick Mauer, we believe we may just have the most complete SSD Database available on the internet. Our featured picture speaks for itself and The SSD Database allows users to search for any SSD (well almost any) by manufacturer, controller, interface, capacity, memory configurations, size or type.

SSD News: KingFast F3 Series mSATA 3.0 SSD Review (120GB)
     Sun, Mar 24 2013 | 12:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If someone would have suggested that mSATA SSD sales would overtake that of notebook form factor SSDs a few years ago, SSD manufacturers would have told them they were nuts. After all, the typical notebook size SSD could replace any hard drive, yet mSATA SSD use was extremely limited, to say the least. The ultrabook was just becoming a vision and, for the most part, the mSATA SSD was limited to Lenovo Thinkpad owners. Our SSD analysis today is going to examine the KingFast F3 Series 120GB mSATA SSD, an SSD manufactured by a company that doesn`t have a strong North American presence, yet still speaks to 50,000 SSD sales per month."

SSD: Micron RealSSD P400m Enterprise SSD Review - Great Consistency and Endurance
     Sun, Mar 24 2013 | 11:54A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The days when an SSD company could take a basic ASIC design and couple it with MLC are long gone. To be competitive in the current enterprise SSD market, your company must innovate. Over the past few months, we have observed innovation happening on two fronts: ASIC design and NAND technology. Each area presents highly complex problems, which in some cases, have been relatively ignored. Certain companies are well positioned to solve these problems. Companies that produce their own NAND and ASICs have a high level of understanding of how all the pieces of an SSD integrate into a single product. They are able to push the boundaries of how the NAND and ASICs interact and squeeze every bit of performance out of the individual components. Micron happens to be one of these companies and Micron P400m is a shining example of what can be accomplished."
