Fractal Design Define XL R2 Enclosure Review
     Wed, Sep 04 2013 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Fractal has continued to be one of the PC industry’s fast rising manufacturers focusing immensely on enclosures and power supplies. What stood out most about the Define R4 were the use of Bitumen sound dampening materials on both side panels and the front door. This is great for anyone with a need to quiet down their system. While the Define R4 enclosure is intended for regular end user purposes, the Define XL R2 has a larger (XL) role in supporting larger systems and a larger number of components as well."

Fractal Design Define XL R2 Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Sep 04 2013 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Out of all the Fractal Design cases the one Ive really wanted to get my hands on has been the Define XL, what can I say I am a fan of big cases. Well Fractal Design has recently revised the Define XL, coming out with the Define XL R2 case. The R2 takes the best parts of the original Define XL case and adds upon it. The Define XL R2 supports large motherboards like E-ATX and XL-ATX, has room for up to 8 hard drives, 4 optical drives, 9 expansions slots, has three included fans with a fan controller and much much more! Did I mention Fractal Design intends this case to be pretty quiet as well. Lets jump in!"

Intel Haswell Linux Performance Remains Mixed
     Wed, Sep 04 2013 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Summary: "Last month I published benchmarks showing Windows 8 beating Ubuntu Linux when it came to the Intel OpenGL performance for the latest generation Intel "Haswell" desktop processors. Since then there's been lots of commits to Mesa and continued improvements to the Linux kernel and for some tests the open-source Linux driver is in better standing. For the testing today is a comparison of Windows 8 Pro against the latest Ubuntu 13.10 development packages when using a System76 Gazelle Professional laptop with Core i7 4900MQ CPU."

Neptor KB300BF-WH Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard Review @ HiTech Legion
     Wed, Sep 04 2013 | 7:31A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EagleTech`s Neptor KB300BF-WH uses the agility of Bluetooth to let you do some real typing on the go. The Neptor KB300BF uses the HID protocol to maximize compatibility with Bluetooth devices, such as tablets and phones. There are even adapters you can get that will let you use this keyboard with microcontrollers, like Arduino or the Raspberry Pi.

It also sports an internal rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery and a 10-meter range (about 30 ft)./"

Western Digital Red 3.5 4TB and 2.5 1TB NAS HDD Full Review - WD Red Mini?
     Tue, Sep 03 2013 | 10:23A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s great to see Western Digital expanding their Red line in both capacity and form factor. The 4TB 3.5 model is a welcome addition likely to prompt an upgrade cycle from those who are hungry for more capacity. While the new 2.5 capacities fill what is currently a bit of a niche market, I suspect more small form factor HTPC and portable type devices to become available this coming year, and the 2.5 Red will fit that bill just perfectly."
