In that area for most consumers (enthusiasts and serious gamers included) even a regular SSD is good enough to do the job but for professionals and enterprise users alike there are more important things to take into account other than performance with endurance and the typical price/capacity ratio leading the list. There are of course several enterprise-grade SSD models in the market as we speak but unfortunately to date they haven't been able to catch up with mechanical HDD models in terms of price (that may change in 2016 however) and in some cases even endurance. Toshiba has released several enterprise-grade HDD lines over the past 3 years or so and they continue to do so this time with the brand new AL13SXB60EN (and to date we're the first to take a look)."

The first round of displays using the Adaptive Sync variable refresh rate technology arrived with an ineffective or otherwise disabled overdrive feature, resulting in less than optimal pixel response times and overall visual quality, especially when operating in variable refresh rate modes. Meanwhile G-Sync users had overdrive functionality properly functioning , as well as a recently introduced 1440P IPS panel from Acer. The FreeSync camp was overdue for an IPS 1440P display superior to that first round of releases, hopefully with those overdrive issues corrected.

In Arkham Knight, Batman must assist Commissioner Gordon and the remaining Gotham City Police in a final effort to take back the city from Scarecrow. The master of chemical-induced fear has forced out most of the citizens and flooded the dark dank streets of Gotham City with a super villain army. This is thanks to his mysterious alliance with a brand new nemesis not-so-coincidentally dubbed the Arkham Knight. This figure is new to the Batman mythos and also bears a striking—more tech-infused resemblance to Batman himself. To make things interesting and familiar all the same, Scarecrow has also teamed up with classic villains Harley Quinn, Penguin, Two-Face and the Riddler."

Meaning that most are generally all alike in build placement and engineering except for one or two exceptions that make that particular case unique, but the Silverstone FT04 is a case that defies this rule of case making. The Silverstone FT04 still has to follow the usual JEDEC Rules for conformity to the E-ATX form factor but past that is where it all changes to pure uniqueness. This Silverstone case defies most of the usual configuration standards and sets itself apart as being a “Case all its own”."

By the mid 90's things improved for the better and thus i managed to get two large monitor speakers on my desk paired with a 32bit Sound Blaster card (AWE32) something which actually didn't last long since with the arrival of the very first 5.1 Dolby Surround sound compatible systems by manufacturers like Creative Labs (still have the Inspire Digital 5700 set) and Wave Master by the end of the decade it was now possible to play games and watch movies on the brand new DVD format (back then anyways) with unprecedented sound clarity. Since then speakers have changed quite a bit so now you don't really need a full 5.1/7.1 surround sound system to enjoy all your favorite games, movies and tunes while sitting in front of your computer screen. Of course finding a really "special" stereo speaker set is not very easy not when there's a massive number of such models in the market but after searching for quite a while we came across the NOVA Wireless Stereo Speaker System by Harman Kardon."

  • "AMD's Radeon R9 Fury X is released today, introducing HBM memory for graphics cards. The new card is built around a watercooled Fiji GPU, which enabled AMD to design a very compact card that will fit into many small-form-factor cases. Gaming performance at 4K is good and roughly matches GTX 980 Ti."

  • "Officially unveiled by AMD during E3 last week, we are finally ready to show you our review of the brand new Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card. Very few times has a product launch meant more to a company, and to its industry, than the Fury X does this summer. AMD has been lagging behind in the highest-tiers of the graphics card market for a full generation. They were depending on the 2-year-old Hawaii GPU to hold its own against a continuous barrage of products from NVIDIA. The R9 290X, despite using more power, was able to keep up through the GTX 700-series days, but the release of NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture forced AMD to move the R9 200-series parts into the sub-$350 field. This is well below the selling prices of NVIDIA's top cards."

    "Scythe might not be one of the big names you hear of when it comes to air CPU coolers. Their coolers typically do not have over-the-top designs or are all that flashy, but when it comes to performance they have always been solid, and of course that is what is most important when it comes to CPU coolers. Today we will be taking a look at a rather inexpensive CPU cooler from Scythe, their Tatsumi. It is only $38.99 at my favorite online retailer and is a very compact cooler made to fit in pretty much any system. Let’s take a look and see what it can do."

  • "Last week we saw AMD reposition their existing GPUs under new branding and pricing structure which they hoped would make them more desirable against the equivalent GeForce GPUs. In the case of the R9 380 (a rebranded R9 285), this was a fairly effective strategy as that card competed well against the GTX 960 while offering a decent price. The other side to the rebranding was of course to accommodate their new high end GPU at the top of the product stack. That GPU was code-named Fiji and today we get to show how it performs in the latest games such as the recently released Dota 2 Reborn which uses the latest generation Source Engine… and we’ll even throw in some last minute Batman Arkham Knight 4k testing too. Welcome to our AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Review."

Is it truly geared for 4K gaming as AMD says?"

  • "Last week, AMD lifted the veil in its Radeon R7 and R9 300 series of products and publicly demoed its latest flagship, the Radeon R9 Fury X, at a small venue adjacent to E3. While the Radeon R7 and R9 300 series leverages existing GPU designs that have previously been featured in Radeon 200 series products, albeit with different clocks and updated memory / board configurations, the Fury X is an altogether new kind of animal that uses some bleeding-edge technology. Today, we can finally dive deep and tell the Radeon R9 Fury X's whole story, complete with our own independent benchmarks."

    For computer data storage system integrators, an easy-to-design product and easy-to-maintain product are synonymously important. Building a product from start to finish while keeping it running can be an intricate process in itself since these builders need to find components that are easy to integrate into their system, but at the same time they need to retain all the features it was intended for. Take a Computerized Medical Cart for example: these embedded systems require computer data storage components that meet certain standards to fit into a specific form factor on the chassis and they need to be reliable enough because having a system downtime is not an option when dealing with patient needs. It would not make sense for these system integrators to purchase from a company that cuts corners at the expense of functionality --they're more inclined to purchase quality products that are user friendly and trustworthy. With large selections of ICY DOCK's data storage solutions, we offer ready-to-go ICY DOCK OEM/ODM solution kits for building a data storage system in order to protect and accommodate your critical data.

    "The Intel 750 is the first NVMe SSD released into the consumer market. It offers users some pretty killer performance at a price point that is roughly twice that of top performing SATA SSDs. Back in April we were able to review the 1.2TB model. After seeing the results we were quite impressed, however, at over $1,000 the 1.2TB model does not completely fit the bill for most, unless you are an enthusiast or workstation user. This was quite evident when we kept hearing people ask about the 400GB model more often than the 1.2TB model, especially when compared to the SM951. For most gamers and storage nuts the 400GB model is far more within reach because of its lower price point and because of this we took it upon ourselves to attain the 400GB Intel 750 Series SSD for review. Now that it is in our hands, how does it compare?"

Now as many of you are well aware the safest and fastest way for consumers to "rate" a power supply unit is to check its 80 Plus efficiency certification and although the top of the line Titanium models offer the highest possible electricity savings currently and thus make use of the highest quality components they don't land far from the Platinum and Gold ones.

It was powerful enough to replace most laptops, and versatile enough to serve as two device types without major compromises on either side. A year later, and Microsoft presents us with the third iteration of the standard Surface. You know, the one without the "Pro" dangling from the end. It's cheaper, slimmer, and toned down, but it's also aimed at a broader swath of consumers. The base Surface 3 checks in at an alluring $499, but that's probably not the machine you'll want. The upgraded spec, which gets 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, goes for $599."

I also wanted to create as clean of a build visually as I could which is where the idea for this came from. I developed a quick disconnect system from S5 to pedestal allowing me to separate the two.

Also, Zeta is equipped with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory which features a single partition.

Unfortunately ever since we made the SNIA IOMeter tests part of our testing methodology we've seen that not many models can produce good sustained performance numbers and so this might just be the next thing for them to focus on. However OCZ with their ARC 100 SSD model which we tested a few months back proved that they've already started to focus on that area (most likely thanks to their merge with Toshiba) and today we're taking their top of the line SATA III SSD model the Vector 180 480GB for a spin to see just how better it is compared to the ARC 100 and of course it's immediate competition."

    "I've yet to meet a gamer who wouldn't want to have the best gaming gear available in the market but let’s face it not everyone can afford (or wants) to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars/euros on a not so "important" hobby (especially nowadays). Because of that consumers naturally turn towards lower cost peripherals which can offer similar gaming experience but at a fraction of the price. Of course some "aspects" do take a hit and most noticeably the number of features (followed by build quality) but as of late there are some manufacturers in the market doing their best to fill that gap. COUGAR started offering their very own gaming peripherals not too long ago and aside the top of the line 700k gaming keyboard and 700k gaming mouse (two peripherals aimed towards serious gamers) they also offer more "balanced" solutions like the 500k gaming keyboard which we have here with us today."

Some make artistic statements with their truly awe-inspiring cases, while others take the dremel and clamps to their beloved video cards in an attempt to eek out that last bit of performance. This article serves the later of the two.

This controller from what we've seen is very solid and performs without issue. They have teamed this controller with Micron's 16nm MLC NAND.

    "CPU air coolers versus AIO Liquid CPU coolers is a subject many of us have seen discussed in various forums around the internet and although it's a valid "question" it's really not very hard to answer since each solution fits specific circumstances. For example if you own a tower with very good airflow levels, plenty of space and you care not about any possible clearance issues then a large CPU air cooler should do the trick for you a lot better than a single 120/140mm AIO model would. On the other hand if you don't own a large PC case and thus you have limited airflow levels and space an AIO liquid CPU cooler regardless of size will outperform any CPU air cooler that fits. A few months back we had the 360mm CAPTAIN model by DeepCool on our test rig but since its size is not something the majority of towers in the market can accommodate today we're taking a closer look at the 120mm variant."

That basically means that the chances of finding a feature unique to a single PC case are slim to none so the best one can hope for is to find one packing as many features as possible that also agrees with him/her in terms of size and design.

    "The QNAP TVS-863+ Turbo vNAS is part of a new hardware platform for QNAP that brings a high level of performance to the small tower-based format, at a lower cost than was possible before. That’s not an uncommon theme for NAS product announcements, but this is. The TVS-x63 series is based on a System-On-Chip (SOC) offering from AMD. Stunned…? I know I was when I first heard it. After years of suffering with multiple generations of Intel Atom-based NAS devices with lackluster performance, from every NAS manufacturer in the market, finally we have a low power replacement that rocks the world. The Intel Bay Trail-D CPU is a great little replacement for the Atom, but the new AMD GX-424CC is in another league altogether. The Radeon graphics section inside, plus four CPU cores running at 2.4 GHz, and a well-developed APU architecture that marries the two together for challenging loads, provides a sea change in computing performance for the low-power, low-cost NAS segment."

  • "The SilverStone Fortress FT05B is an unusual ATX case, as it has pretty much all the usual parts and features however they are not in the usual locations. Where the FT05B-W departs from the norm is the way the motherboard is rotated 90 degrees so the I/O panel sits at the top of the case. This means that cooling air that usually enters from the front of the case is actually drawn in from the bottom and then blown vertically up the case by the two huge 180mm Air Penetrator fans (that’s £30 right there) that occupy the floor of the case. When you consider that hot air rises this arrangement makes perfect sense, however it also makes the design of the case a little complicated."

    "Having used 5.1/7.1 Dolby Surround/Digital Sound systems since the late 90's i know that regular stereo and even 3D virtual surround sound systems can't even hold a candle against them. Still not everyone has enough space to place 6 or 8 speakers (5.1/7.1) so it didn't take that long for manufacturers to come up with the ideal compromise between size and performance. We are of course talking about sound bars and although the concept is not really new and they can't really compete with complete 5.1/7.1 surround sound systems still they offer a good value for people looking to seriously upgrade the sound coming from their TV screens without sacrificing much space in the process. Razer is mostly popular amongst users for their gaming mouse, keyboards and headsets but what many may not know is that they've recently ventured in other areas of the market such as virtual reality, portable computing, TV players and even home theater audio systems. One of these new products is the Leviathan 5.1 Channel Surround Sound Bar which as the title of this review clearly states is with us today."

The Titan X was so different from the GTX 980 when it came to pricing and memory capacity (12GB, really??) that NVIDIA had set up the perfect gap with which to place the newly minted GTX 980 Ti. Today we get to take the wraps off of that new graphics card and I think you'll be impressed with what you find, especially when you compare its value to the Titan X."

It is notably smaller than, say, the Enthoo Pro which is also ATX.

    "Looking back into the not too distant past I can remember when the original Corsair H80 AIO cooler come out. I had started out my overclocking adventures a little while before that using an H70 and remember thinking how cool it would be to step up to the bigger more powerful H80. It had a much thicker radiator than my cooler and dual fans as well! Flash forward half a decade and here we are with the newest iteration of that cooler. While many things have changed, some things such as the dual fans and super thick radiator have stayed the same. The H80 was an excellent entry level cooler for those looking for higher performance back then; lets check out the latest version the H80i GT and see if the same is still true today."

    "Solid state drives (SSDs) have many things in common with their "distant" cousins the typical flash drives but performance was never really one of those things mainly due to USB connectivity limitations (both hardware and software ones). This obstacle as some of you know was left behind not too long ago with the arrival of new USB 3.0 compatible controllers and the UASP (USB Attached SCSI) compatible driver found in Windows 8/8.1 since these two marked the day when manufacturers could actually squeeze the same parts found in every day SSD models inside tiny enclosures and expect similar performance results with increased capacity. Casual users have very little use for such drives however so unfortunately not many "portable" SSDs exist in the market as we speak but with the release of the T1 by Samsung and the Ventura Ultra by Mushkin (which we have here with us today) things are starting to get very interesting."

    "Thermaltake has always been one to impress us over the years. Whether it's from over the top cases or cases that have new design elements made to make installation easier we know Thermaltake first and foremost for their cases. Their latest Core Series was just that, cases made for builders, for expansion, for watercooling and pretty much whatever you could throw at them. While the Core Series was great, they were not traditional cases in the sense that they were more cube like and not a typical tower. Well today we have Thermaltake’s latest case that incorporates many of the design elements that are found in the Core Series and put them into a large mid tower case. The case that I am talking about is the Suppressor F51 and if you can guess by the name of the case it is made to suppress the noise inside your system. Let's jump in!"

  • "When NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX Titan X a few weeks back, it did a couple of things. In addition to releasing the fastest single-GPU-powered graphics card we have seen to date, it also created a huge gap in NVIDIA's desktop GPU line-up. The GeForce GTX 980 can be had for about $530 give or take a few bucks (though that will be changing after today). The GeForce GTX Titan X, however, landed at a cool $1000. That's a big price gap to leave empty. Consider the Titan X's massive 12GB of memory and the fact that its GPU leverages all available resources of the GM200 design, and it becomes obvious that a card with less memory and fewer CUDA cores could easily drop in between the GTX 980 and Titan X and fill that gap. And that's just what NVIDIA is doing with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti."

    Hot Hardware

  • "You knew it was coming. When Nvidia introduced the GeForce Titan X, it was only a matter of time before a slightly slower, less expensive version of that graphics card hit the market. That's pretty much how it always happens, and this year is no exception."

  • "Nvidia's Maxwell architecture has dominated the market since last year and today they release their new flagship board - the GTX980 Ti... slotting in above the GTX980 in the high end.

One of the markets especially influenced by Bluetooth connectivity has been the audio electronics one since it (along with Wi-Fi in the case of Apple) allowed the design and manufacture of both wireless headsets and speakers just in time for the smartphone revolution. Granted at first the available products were not what one would call impressive and had numerous flaws (although back then they weren't really seen as such) but nowadays we see many decent offerings by a very large number of manufacturers established and not.

    "As technology progresses prices for current and previous generation devices keep falling and that has allowed solid state drives (SSDs) to become mainstream quite faster than many of us had hoped for when we first started to receive the very first ones to appear in the market roughly 6 years ago. Of course compared to regular mechanical hard disk drives (HDDs) the difference in price/capacity ratio is still somewhat large but at least now one can get an high performance 256GB SSD model for less than 0.7$ per GB. Price however is not the only thing that has improved the standing of SSDs in the market since with the appearance of 1TB models and the recent announcement of 2TB ones professionals can now have superior read & write speeds at very large capacities (always compared to the past).

  • "As a followup to its ThinkPad 8 tablet, Lenovo has now incorporated Intel's Bay Trail platform into its larger ThinkPad 10, a business-ready slate the company claims can offer users a full PC experience. Stopping there would be selling this tablet a bit short, however, as it's really a multi-mode device that can serve a number of purposes, both during and after business hours. Ideally, this would negate the need to purchase separate systems for work and play. What Lenovo's really doing here is tapping into the potential of Microsoft's Windows 8.1 ecosystem. From the beginning, Microsoft envisioned Windows 8/8.1 as a universal operating system built for work, play, and everything in between, but software will only get you so far. It's up to Microsoft's hardware partners to figure out how best to take advantage of Windows 8.1, and with the ThinkPad 10, Lenovo's answer is to accessorize the platform."

  • "LG is probably getting a little tired of scraping for brand recognition versus big names like Samsung, Apple and yes, even Google. However, the company is also likely taking solace in the fact that their smartphone sales figures are heading for an all-time high in 2014, with an estimated 60 million units projected to be sold this year. Part of that success probably comes from private label sales of devices like the LG-made Google Nexus 5, though the LG G2 certainly sold its fair share as well. So, at the end of the day, LG is sort of the "sleeper" of smartphone makers and as a major OEM display manufacturer, they've got the chops to compete with the best of breed in the race for superphone dominance. LG's third iteration of their popular "G" line of flagship smartphones, simply dubbed the LG G3, is the culmination of all of the innovation the company has developed in previous devices to date, including its signature rear button layout, along with cutting-edge IPS display technology that only a first tier manufacturer can muster.

Personally I've always liked using modem/routers not only because it really saves space (along with an extra power socket) but also because i believe these work better compared to a standalone router plugged into a modem. Unfortunately as we speak most available modem/routers feature the previous generation 802.11n (750Mbps total) standard which is obviously not nearly as fast as the brand new 802.11ac one (1900Mbps total) so if you happen to want the best possible wireless signal then you could be better off choosing the solution above.

  • "For many enthusiast gamers, the 'sweet spot' price point for a graphics card is around the £200 mark. For this kind of cash you can get a solution capable of powering the latest Direct X 11 games at 1080p, and some even at 1600p. We recently had a look at the excellent MSI R9 280 Gaming Edition and the PNY GTX760 XLR8 cards, both priced around £185 inc vat. We had a lot of readers ask about the XFX R9 280 Black Edition, clocked at 1GHZ and available at a very attractive £179.99 from Scan. Is this a good card to shortlist?"

Back in 2011, an UK-based company started that had the sole intent of creating high quality products that produce phenomenal sound out of natural materials, that you can take with you wherever you may go. You may recognize them from a previous report we did a few weeks back, when we took a look at the Bayan Audio Soundbook Wireless Bluetooth Speaker. Today, we have the privilege of taking a bigger and better look at the Bayan Audio Soundbook X3, the big brother to the previously reported Soundbook. One thing to keep in mind before we dig into the X3, is that we are looking at a wireless bluetooth speaker. More often then not, you 'get what you pay for' when it comes to wireless bluetooth speakers. The cheaper wireless speakers are typically comprised of a lower grade material, which will further inhibit the performance of the speaker, but the opposite also remains true.

When constantly on the run, consumers want fast and reliable external storage in a very portable form factor. Portable external HDDs are usually able to meet those needs, but not always. HDDs have two issues when used as portable media; one, they are slow compared to SSDs and two, they are not nearly as resistant to physical abuse as solid state storage option. For the most part, USB 3.0 thumb drives usually are able to deliver us decent speeds and portability, but unless you are going to pay an arm and a leg, you aren't going to get HDD like capacity.

    "August 2010. A new company releases a massive enclosure aptly named the Colossus. The original Colossus was BitFenix's first product as a company, and it captured the attention of the enthusiast crowd at the time with its various added features and performance capabilities. While Benchmark Reviews has taken a look at the Colossus before, the recent release of the micro-ATX (and mini-ITX) Colossus M got us thinking: how much performance was retained in the Colossus' spiritual successor? The SofTouch finishes, LiteTrak systems and bold styling are all there, but how do the two compare when filled with similar hardware? Is the monolithic Colossus ancient history by now, or can BitFenix's first product still hold its own? Courtesy of BitFenix, let's see how the latest BitFenix Colossus stacks up against the original version."

Its larger cousin, the GT70, features a 17.3" screen (versus the GT60's 15.6"), faster CPUs and GPUs, and even better options for storage. Now, the latest iteration of this force to be reckoned with has arrived on our desks, and while its appearance hasn't changed much, its performance is even better than ever."

    "In our home, we have 6 PC's, 4 laptops, an iMac and a MBA. Perhaps the most frustrating thing over time is the constant requests for so-and so to provide so-and-so something from their PC. Installing a separate drive, via network attached storage, has always been an option, but let's face it; it just isn't that easy. Imagine if we could, not only create a network that enables easy file sharing by all, but also centralize media so we can watch movies from attached TVs through a central storage location, and also, access your computer's files worldwide from this new home NAS; the Thecus N2310 makes this all possible."

  • "The small form factor market has seen a ton of innovation as of late, and while it's quite nice to have so many tiny PC options that offer generally impressive performance in a package that you can stick just about anywhere (often with price tags that make these machines affordable enough as your second PC), system builders need to work harder than ever to differentiate their products. Zotac has decided to take a stab at a radical chassis design with its Zbox OI520 Plus "Sphere", and indeed, the black orb will make you do a double-take when you see it. It's small. It's spherical. It's certainly different. And it has an icy blue LED light band around its entire circumference."

Think about it, just two years ago i was running around carrying an 16GB USB flash drive with my keychain while now i have attached a permanent 32GB one which i sometimes replace with an 128GB one if i need to carry way too much data with me. The good news is that unlike a year ago today there are plenty of USB 3.0 compatible 128GB flash drives for one to choose from in the market and so we took it upon ourselves to get our hands on as many as we can to check and see what you can expect in terms of read & write performance.

    "As you will have undoubtedly noticed for the past year or so we've focused quite a bit in bringing all reviews of many of the latest action camera and car dash camera models to hit the market. My personal opinion is that car dash cameras are much more useful than regular action cameras since they can be of assistance in case of an accident helping you save both time and money (not to mention that in some countries your care insurance fees are reduced if you happen to use one such model). However since most action cameras can also be used as dash cameras just by purchasing a dash mount there isn't that much distance between the two. However although most models we've tested to date combined very good image and audio quality with several interesting features in the end none of them was compact enough to be also be carried around as a camcorder. Rollei obviously thought of that issue and released the Mini WiFi Camcorder 1 a tiny 720p capable camera."

    "If you want to give your podcasts a professional appearance, you need a good quality microphone. Forget about the tiny hole on your portable smart-whatever device, there's a world of difference between consumer and professional-grade microphones, and the signal processing circuits that go along with them. Once you have a good microphone and preamp, you then need to digitize the signal using an Analog-to-Digital (A/D) convertor, and get that digital signal into your PC. The Spark Digital from Blue Microphones is an all-in-one solution for high quality digital audio production. All the signal processing is done inside the body of the microphone, and the interface to your computer is through one of several available serial connections. The Spark Digital supports USB 1.1/2.0, the relatively new Lightning connection, or the older Apple 30-pin interface, through the use of separate cables for each connection type.

NVMe is a low-latency, scalable host controller interface designed specifically for PCI Express-based solid state drives. NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) offers a number enhancements over legacy interfaces, like support for parallel operations and support for up to 64K commands within a single I/O queue to the drive.

However the E50 is not the flagship SSD model in the Kingston SSDnow line and so we decided that it would be in everyone's best interest to get the top of the line E100 200GB variant (although quite older) and see not only how it does against its smaller brother the E50 but also against every single SSD in our charts."

    "Antec is no stranger to the chassis market, with well respected products such as the Nine Hundred and Twelve Hundred series chassis. However, Antec has little to offer in the Mini-ITX market, with just the ISK100 and 300 series released thus far. Last November, Antec released the newest case in their Mini-ITX lineup, the ISK600. The small form factor ISK600 is designed to provide all the features any ITX builder would need without the price tag of other cases such as the Corsair Obsidian 250D and the BitFenix Prodigy. The ISK600′s main features include the ability to mount a standard ATX power supply, long graphics cards, up to five internal hard drives, and it comes with a decorative LED strip on the front panel. With the interest in small form factor PCs continuing to rise, it is imperative that new designs offer more to builders than the competition. But does the ISK600 have the features necessary to compete? In this article, Benchmark Reviews inspects the features of the Antec ISK600 and how they compare to the other popular choices in the Mini-ITX market."

For good or bad lately most manufacturers out there have been focusing mostly in the design and manufacture of strange looking towers (some for example base design on sports cars) to try and attract as many "young" people as possible and although that's understandable many times we see build quality and interior space placed last (an exception to that rule although it could have been even better is the Cosmos II).

Because of this, Crucial needed to release a more modern lower budget drive. They had already separated their product line of SSDs in the 2012 with their V4, offering a more budget friendly SSD.

Weirdly enough however most of those speakers were not rugged so I'm still having a hard time figuring out why one would risk damaging a speaker just by bringing it to the rather "harsh" conditions of the beach. Normally i wouldn't be thinking about something like that for so long since it's not really important but it so happened that at the same time i was also testing the latest flagship rugged portable wireless speaker by Jabra the Solemate Max so i guess that a small comparison was inevitable."

    "For going on two years now, Samsung has been a major player in the SSD market. Before that, Samsung SSDs just didn't compete. That has all changed with the Samsung 800 series of SSDs and even more recently with the release of Samsung's RAPID technology for use with Samsung 840 SSDs. Samsung now competes at the top of the market and their SSDs are forces to be reckoned with. In this article, Benchmark Reviews looks at the Samsung 840 Pro SSD's performance, with and without RAPID mode enabled."

  • "The specifications of GTX Titan Z are damned impressive - 5,760 CUDA cores, 12GB of total graphics memory, 8.1 TFLOPs of peak compute performance. But something happened between the announcement and product release that perhaps NVIDIA hadn't accounted for. AMD's Radeon R9 295X2, a dual-GPU card with full-speed Hawaii chips on-board, was released at $1499. I think it's fair to say that AMD took some chances that NVIDIA was surprised to see them take, including going the route of a self-contained water cooler and blowing past the PCI Express recommended power limits to offer a ~500 watt graphics card. The R9 295X2 was damned fast and I think it caught NVIDIA a bit off-guard."

We will look at performance and compare it to GTX 780 and R9 290X."

    "So say you are at the beach, a the pool or even hanging outside with friends. You are having a good time, but something is missing...good music! Bluetooth portable speakers solve this problem because they can be used with pretty much any smartphone and they do not require external power. So you can easily throw one in your bag and you will be good to go. Today we are taking a look at the Adesso Xtreme S2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker that features double bass subwoofer sound technology, multipoint technology so you can connect multiple devices at once, and even a built-in microphone to take calls.

    "The new SATA-Express standard may be just around the corner both in terms of compatible mainboards, cards and drives but that obviously isn't reason enough to stop most SSD manufacturers from launching their next generation models based on SATA III. The list of names is quite long but as expected the main players like Kingston, Toshiba, Samsung, Crucial, Corsair and OCZ are the first ones to do so (and the ones that interest us the most since they have the largest piece of the market). A few days ago we had the chance to test the Q Series Pro 256GB SSD by Toshiba and although far from excellent it did provide surprisingly good read & write performance at a very tempting price tag. Today we'll be taking a higher end SSD model for a ride to see how well it does the brand new M550 256GB by Crucial."
