Acer Veriton VZ410G
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Acer Veriton VZ410G is an all-in-one desktop, which have increasingly become more popular, with a 3.0GHz Intel CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 21.5-inch LCD display. It has some decent connectivity, including eSATA, but lacks one crucial multimedia feature, which is what an all-in-one PC is usually all about.”

Posted by: STAFF
"Looking to make a highly affordable and easy to use network laser printer, Samsung recently released the CLP-325W. The CLP-325W sells for a little over $200 CDN, and in addition to offering all the standard connections, also comes wireless equipped right out of the box. Samsung says that their 'one-touch' WLAN setup should have this printer ready to use in, well, one touch!"

$8,000 LSI WarpDrive 300GB PCI Express SSD Review
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 3:48P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If we consider companies like LSI and their competitors, like Adaptec and AMCC (3Ware), you'll note that they're in a unique position in this storage technology migration, in that they can almost take an agnostic stance, in terms of which media type and market opportunity they decide to resource development efforts in. For players like LSI, with a wealth of HBA controller IP at their disposal, they can relatively easily adapt and re-tool their technologies to service NAND Flash SSD memory structures and bring compelling solutions to market as market demand develops.

www.pcstats.com

The LSI WarpDrive that we have on hand for you here is representative of LSI's efforts to capitalize on the company's strong SAS RAID controller technology base, combined with the most cutting-edge SSD technologies on the market today. We'll call to your attention early here that the WarpDrive means business though. With a $11,500 MSRP and street pricing in the $7400 - $8K range, end-user enthusiasts are likely not going to belly-up the justification to support the cost of a storage subsystem that is much more expensive than a typical entire system build...

Samsung FX2490HD 24" LED Hybrid HDTV & Monitor
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 3:44P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many, the differences between computer monitors and HDTVs are distinct enough that separate products will likely be bought in order to encompass all of benefits each brings to the table. Samsung however thinks they have found a solution: an all-in-one hybrid which combines the best features of both genres into a 24" product dubbed the FX2490HD.

How to Buy to Motherboard
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 3:44P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The CPU may be the brain of a computer, but by itself it has no way to interact with the PC's other components—it needs a nervous system. That would be the motherboard. When you're building a PC from scratch, the motherboard is what you need to link all the other components together. Here's a quick primer on what to look for when shopping.”

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 DirectX 11 Video Card Review
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 is based on the same GF110 GPU architecture as the NVIDIA GTX 580. The GeForce GTX 570 comes with 480 CUDA cores, 60 texture units, 40 ROP units and 15 streaming multiprocessors. The GF110 architecture has been reengineered from the transistor level to increase power efficiency, lower heat output and also increase performance on the average of 25% over its predecessor the Geforce GTX 470. NVIDIA has also redesigned their heatsink and fan solution to ensure a quieter gaming experience. As an added bonus the core and memory clock speeds have also been increased when compared to the GTX 470."

ThermalTake Element Q Mini-ITX Case Review
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many PC gamers use a mid-tower computer case, mainly because most full-featured motherboards are also full-sized ATX. Mini-ITX motherboards have come on the scene over the past few years, but many of them have been under-powered, and not exactly suitable for gaming. Intel's ION platform is changing that, and now there is a legitimate need for small Mini-ITX cases for small and cute gaming system builds. ThermalTake's Element Q case is a small and cute case that is also targeted towards the PC gamer and computer enthusiast. Not only does it have a small footprint, but can take a decent amount of hardware, and even includes its own power supply.

Sapphire Pure Black X58 Motherboard
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Sapphire has been in the game for a long time. The company is best known not only for making video cards, but also for making some of the best on the market when AMD (previously ATI) are on top of their game. Sapphire getting into motherboards isn't really anything new, as we've seen them offer AMD ones for a while with the Pure line. The bottom line is, though, that AMD haven't been a dominant force in the CPU market for a long time and the Sapphire line of motherboards pretty much slipped under the radar. Evolving, we see Sapphire offer us not only a performance motherboard, but an Intel one based on the high end X58 chipset. Companies like GIGABYTE and ASUS can offer us both a strong video card and motherboard line-up; but can Sapphire offer us the same?"

Silverstone ML03 HTPC Case & ST40F-ES PSU
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ML03, while keeping the same great compact size as it's two siblings, has managed to find room for a standard ATX power supply, enough slots for a mATX motherboard, an extra full-size slot for accessories, and mounts for four 80mm fans! Support for USB3.0 makes it next generation ready, and of course sleek looks are something I've come to expect from any Silverstone case. A small case like this also needs an ATX power supply that will fit nicely too. Along with the ML03, I'll also be checking out the ST40F-P entry level 400W power supply from Silverstone."

Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The new Intel P67 chipset lies at the heart of the Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4, and Gigabyte has utilized it to great advantage with full support for Intel’s SandyBridge Processors. While the GA-P67A-UD4 sits in the middle of Gigabyte’s P67 lineup, there is no shortage of innovation and design. As part of the Ultra Durable 3 series, the GA-P67A-UD4 uses 50,000 hour solid capacitors and a 2oz copper circuit board used in conjunction with 12 phase power design for cooler board temperatures and longer life. Gigabyte’s 333 design incorporates USB 3.0, 6Gbs SATA 3 and 3X typical USB power, now adding Turbo XHD to its SATA 3.0 options. Turbo XHD offers automatic setup for RAID 0, offering 4X the speed of a conventional SATA 2.0 HDD. The 3X USB power incorporated in the GA-P67A-UD4 offers 1500mA to USB 2.0 ports and 2700mA to USB 3.0 ports. This means faster charging for peripherals (such as cell phones and mp3 players) and many times relieves the need for external power or USB Y-connectors for higher powered USB devices. Power to the USB ports is always present on the GA-P67A-UD4 regardless of the computers boot state making USB charging always readily available."
