AMD Brazos platform
     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Also worth noting in my testing that even while running 3DMark Vantage, the Toshiba C655D has never gotten even remotely warm to the touch. Nor are there any loud fans running the whole time. The promises from AMD of a very cool computing environment with longer battery life that most Atom platforms seems to be met with this machine, even if the performance delta from Intel's options is less than I would have liked."

You also get a 500GB hard drive and a full port selection, HDMI out. The extra long battery life with this laptop is also a huge plus.”

Acer Aspire AS7552G-6436
     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Acer Aspire AS7552G-6436 is the kind of desktop replacement laptop that starts out strong and then tapers off at the finish line. For instance, storage is aplenty with a 640GB hard drive, while the 17-inch widescreen and powerful ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6650 chip are a boon for movie buffs and avid gamers.”

PowerColor HD 6870 PCS++ 1 GB
     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor's new HD 6870 PCS++ comes with massively increased clocks out of the box which makes it roughly as fast as GTX 560 Ti or HD 6950. With a reasonable price increase of only $10 over the reference design, the card does not break the bank either, it is actually a worthy opponent to NVIDIA's GTX 560 Ti considering price/performance.

     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "Fractal Design is a relatively new case manufacturer compared to household names like Cooler Master and Lian Li, but with the R3 we feel the company has produced a product with sufficient quality to take on and beat the most established names in the business."

Western Digital My Book 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 External HDD Review
     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Western Digital My Book Series is one of the longest running product brand names in the storage market. Western Digital has done very well with My Book and all of the products in the group have turned out very well. In 2011 Western Digital is raising the bar for My Book by adding the new My Book 3.0, a new USB 3.0 connected enclosure to the series. The Western Digital My Book 3.0 is a sleek enclosure around two inches wide and seven inches tall. The top, bottom and back are vented to allow air to flow over the internal drive, but the front and sides have a matte black finish. When the drive is powered a tiny white LED glows to show that the system is actually powered on. Western Digital needed some way to show that the drive was powered on since the My Book 3.0 is silent from just a few inches away. On the back you will find a single button to power the enclosure on and off."

Thermaltake Armor A30 mATX Case Review
     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“I myself travel a good bit for LAN parties, with them ether being at a friend’s house or a larger LAN event like Pittco events right here in Pittsburgh. Traveling and carrying around a big case can sometimes be a pain. Then again there are not very many mATX cases that will suit the needs of gamers and fit their larger graphics cards and heatsinks. But Thermaltake was nice enough to send us over their Armor A30 case for us to take a look at. Let’s see if this case will suit my needs and the need of other gamers out there."

Pure Piper A-1 DAC review
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 5:48P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From time to time we hear of devices that are considered promising by other audio nuts. As the hobby of audio is more of a passion to many of us, we have to check out these devices to see or rather hear what all the fanfare is about. The PurePiper A-1 DAC is one such device that has been the topic of discussion around many of the audio circles recently. The PurePiper A-1 is said to offer excellent sound quality in comparison to the budget minded price of the device. Who is PurePiper you are probably wondering?

File Transfers Over 1Gbit/s Ethernet: SSD vs. HDD
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 5:28P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Utilizing Intel's I340 server NIC on one end, and a Realtek on the other, a transfer from SSD to SSD (Corsair F160 to Corsair F160) proved to be about 111MB/s for a solid file, and 56.75MB/s for a folder, which consisted of 6,353 files of varying sizes. At around 111MB/s, we found our network to be pretty-well maxed-out, even with the Intel server card involved (and for what it's worth, we found pretty much the same in Linux, except it was 1MB/s slower on average).

GreenSmart Bottles to Bags Horizontal Notebook Messenger Bag
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 4:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" We love green, and you can’t get much more green than the product I have for review today, it’s a messenger bag mode of 100% recycled materials, specifically plastic bottles. The product is called the GreenSmart Bottles to Bags Horizontal Messenger Bag, Geeks.com sent it over, and it’s very inexpensive coming in at under $10. How many messenger bags do you know of that cost that little? None that I know of, at least that is until now. The bag has plenty of room inside for laptops up to 15.4” in size and enough room for quite a bit more."

Antec DF-85 Full Tower Case Review
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec set out to re-envision the gaming case with the DF-85 and I would say they were successful as it not only looks good but also is packed with features. From the 7 adjustable speed fans, filters and Fleet Swap everything is geared towards user friendliness. Looks are always suggestive I like the DF-85's aggressive appearance.

Asus SBW-06C1S-U Slim USB External Blu-Ray Writer Review
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 4:00P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Ultimately, Asus' portable Blu-Ray drive has a lot going for it. USB bus power makes it convenient to pick up and take anywhere, the ultra-slim design and blue LEDs look fantastic, and the drive reads and writes everything from a simple CD-R's to recordable BD media reliably."
