Certainly although once such drives were very popular mostly amongst gamers and professionals due to their price decrease over the past 2-3 years they've become a lot more mainstream thus you can find them even in low-cost desktop systems and notebooks.

The board is one of the first mainstream cards in recent memory to have a power draw that is under 75 watts, but can still play games with good quality settings at 1080P resolutions. Ryan covered this very well and it turned out to be a perfect gaming card for many pre-built systems that do not have extra power connectors (or a power supply that can support 125+ watt graphics cards). These are relatively inexpensive cards and very easy to install, producing a big jump in performance as compared to the integrated graphics components of modern CPUs and APUs."

This is why the C-type heatpipe design is popularly used for CPU coolers destined for small-form factor enclosures. This type of cooler has its own set of design issues it must overcome to be a viable solution, even more challenging than designing a tower cooler. The limited space means that the mounting will be difficult and a fan that is capable of being quiet must be used should it find a home inside a home-theater PC.

Seeing as I'm an FPS player, and can't remember the last time I used a macro, I definitely wanted to take a look at the COUGAR 600k."

    "Network attached storage devices (or servers as we like to call them) have gained popularity not only because of their affordable prices and compact size but also because of their low electricity requirements and out of the box use thanks to their user friendly operating systems and list of available and absolutely free to use applications. Because of that we've been doing our best to keep up with the all the NAS servers introduced in the market almost on a monthly basis but in the end that number is so large that it makes it extremely hard for us to cover every single user out there from home and office and up to small business and enterprise ones. Still we always do our best so since last time we had a rather entry/mid-level NAS model by QNAP today we'll be taking a look at something aimed much higher towards small businesses and enterprises, the latest AS7010T NAS Server by our friends over at ASUSTOR."

Along with the traditional membrane keyboard that everyone graduates from at some point, there is the middle ground.

  • "Intel continues to invest a significant amount of money into this small form factor product dubbed the Next Unit of Computing, or NUC. When it was initially released in December of 2012, the NUC was built as an evolutionary step of the desktop PC, part of a move for Intel to find new and unique form factors that its processors can exist in. With a 4" x 4" motherboard design the NUC is certainly a differentiating design and several of Intel's partners have adopted it for products of their: Gigabyte's BRIX line being the most relevant."

    PC Perspective

  • "All in one systems are all about balance. Attempting to cram an entire PC's worth of components into the back of what amounts to a slightly wider-than-normal display can be an iffy proposition. Pare down the specifications too much and you wind up with a limp machine that's obsolete by the time you get it. Jam in too many high-performance components and the price skyrockets to a point that you wonder if a different form factor might have been a better option, not to mention the additional thermal and acoustic concerns. Lenovo's B Series all in one systems are decidedly mid-range in both name and performance. You can opt for the low end in the C Series, which come with either a Celeron or Core i5 CPU. Or you can jump to the front of the pack with the A Series, which leads the way with more powerful components, including a 2.8GHz Core i7 CPU and a 27-inch screen. The B Series is situated right in the middle of the two."

    "As the size of information stored in the cloud grows increasingly larger, IT managers must plan on getting data out of the cloud when it's critically needed during disaster recovery. For some businesses, the cloud is a place to deposit a second copy of data already retained locally. For others the cloud is primary storage, where unique data is created and modified. Problems arise in both cases: when local data is lost due to fire, flood, or theft, when the data is too large for a timely transfer across limited Internet bandwidth, or when a cloud provider shuts down. This all begs the question: is redundant data in place?"

  • "Flagship. Premium. Best in class. These are the terms that Dell and Intel muttered to me during a conference call to discuss the new Dell Venue 8 7000 tablet. It's a bullish claim and one that would likely have been received with a sideways eye roll or a shrug had I not been able to get a short amount of hands on time with the device at CES in January. The idea that Dell would develop an Android tablet that bests what more established brands like Nexus and Samsung have created, AND that that same tablet would be powered by an Intel processor rather than a Qualcomm, NVIDIA or Samsung chip would have seemed laughable last year. But after a solid three weeks with the Venue 8 7000 I am prepared to make the statement: this is my favorite tablet. Not my favorite Intel tablet, not my favorite Android tablet: just plain favorite."

Last year we took a look at the RYOS MK Glow and now we are taking a look at the RYOS TKL Pro. The RYOS TKL is in the tenkeyless form factor that we saw on the Tt eSPORTS Poseidon ZX. That form factor is a favorite of many gamers and I actually prefer it as well.

    "Right now 4k 2160p UHD resolution is what 2k 1080p Full HD resolution was roughly 5-6 years ago so naturally every single LCD/TFT manufacturer out there is launching models that support 4k. Just like with 1080p all LCDs and TFTs that support the new 4k 2160p resolution are obviously not created equal and thus consumers should really do their homework prior to finalizing their choice especially since 4k is relatively new in the market. On top of that we all feel that the minimum inches required to really appreciate and experience 4k in all its glory is 27 with 30+ being the ideal scenario so this is also something consumers need to take into consideration. AOC recently send us their 28 inch 4k solution which was quite good although far from being excellent mainly due to input lag during testing. Well today with us we have the latest 34 inch solution by AOC the U3477PQU WQHD Ultra High Resolution monitor."

    "If you drive your car a lot and you need to answer calls then you have two "legal" choices as we speak so you can either use a car speakerphone or a hands-free earset/headset. Car speakerphones however are not all equal so on one hand you have the cost-effective portable models which you can move around with you and offer good bidirectional audio and the more advanced and expensive speakerphone kits which require to be hardwired to your cars stereo system. Both are valid solutions but aside the fact that both have different target groups they have but one common drawback, you can't use them at all times. This is where hands-free earsets/headsets take the lead since you can use them at all times and are much easier/faster to configure and use than their larger counterparts. Now it's been a while since i last came across a hands-free Bluetooth wireless earset worth of my time but Plantronics never lets me down so roughly two years after they released the excellent Voyager Legend model we have with us the brand new Voyager Edge Bluetooth Headset."

They also help address the relatively small amount of storage that is included with today's mobile devices, as they let you store and access terabytes of data on your smartphone or tablet without having to store it locally. It's an interesting combination, and very useful if you're the type of person who is constantly passing your external drive around to family members or co-workers. Instead of using Sneaker Net, a drive like the WD My Passport Wireless lets other people connect to the drive wirelessly for file sharing, and it also allows connected users to stream its contents either via a mobile app or via file explorer/Finder.

Actually, it was a good idea, but with the introduction of digital TV Everywhere-DVB-T there rises the mighty cable, satellite and IPTV lobby. And so many parts of Germany are supplied only with the bare minimum. But as a resourceful hobbyist you do not throw those sticks away. Now there is a great possibility to help the DVB-T Stick get back its old glory. It is called SDR and is the acronym for Software Defined Radio. Using a specific chipset DVB-T Stick, it is possible to cover a broadband frequency spectrum and receive radio signals. And that can sometimes be more interesting than a boring television program."

The Origin Genesis was unveiled to the public. My first impression of the case when I saw it at the Origin booth was one of awe and excitement.

    "It seems that although the most popular PC cases nowadays are mITX and mATX compatible ones there's still a large crowd out there that prefers midi and full towers and thus as expected manufacturers are doing their best to please them too. Now i can't say that I've seen many midi towers lately which I'd like to own myself either because they look very plain and/or they lack the features I'd like them to have but the bottom line is that there's nothing new and exciting in the midi tower market as we speak. Well almost nothing to be precise (and fair) since the leading manufacturers may not be focusing in the midi tower market right now (mITX/mATX models seem to be their top priority) but others seem to be doing exactly that and AeroCool is amongst them although the XPredator X3 Devil Red Edition midi tower which we have here with us today is not really one of their latest models."

Today is a new day, however, and Patriot enters the SSD arena once again. Read on as we put the new 480GB Patriot Ignite to the tes in our first review of a Patriot SSD for some time. As with many third-party SSDs in previous years, Patriot's drives have typically been SandForce driven. Recently, Phison has become recognized as a solid competitor in the SSD controller game through their offering of great performance at a decent price. The end result seems to be a much closer look at Phison by SSD manufacturers, Patriot included with the introduction of their new Ignite SSD family."

    The SSD Review

  • "The 5820K has shown that a strong boost in CPU performance can be obtained for a reasonable price increase over the LGA 1150 Core i7 CPUs. And many of the X99 motherboards sit well below £200, making them affordable to enthusiast buyers. But where that entire value logic of Intel's X99 platform starts to fall short is at the expense of DDR4 memory. One way of keeping costs to a minimum is by opting for a slower (therefore cheaper) memory kit. We test ADATA's 2400MHz XPG Z1 16GB DDR4 kit to see how it stacks up against the higher-priced, faster alternatives."

Over the years we've seen many solutions for that from larger 3rd party batteries which can replace the one your smartphone comes with from the factory and even extra battery packs that double the battery capacity of your smartphone by attaching to its rear (this was especially popular amongst iPhone owners). Portable batteries however have taken the market by storm not only because you can find models out there that can recharge even a large tablet up to 3 times or more (and a smartphone up to 10 times or more) but also because they can be used to recharge and even power pretty much any portable device in the market currently.

  • "Alienware's new Area 51 gaming desktop PC arrived late last year and it certainly turned heads, including ours, due to its somewhat radical design. Sure, we've seen some wild chassis designs out of Dell's Alienware gaming PC division in the past, but their new, redesigned Area 51 machine really broke the mold. In fact, if you're stuck on the old gray or black box design of most legacy systems, the "Triad" chassis of the new Area 51 may be too much of a departure for you to wrap your head around...

    And then of course, there's Alienware's 1500 power supply that supplies juice to a loaded-for-bear configuration of the latest technologies in our test system, like an Intel 6-core Haswell-E Core i7-5930K unlocked processor, three NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Maxwell graphics cards in Tri-SLI, and a nimble 256GB Samsung SSD 850 Pro Solid State Drive, along with 16GB of DDR4 2133MHz memory...

    To say this system is decked out to offer a beating in the benchmarks, would be an understatement. However, it's how all those killer components are configured inside this wild-looking chassis, that makes Alienware's new out-of-this-world gaming PC so special."

  • The SSD Review

    "While we are awaiting next gen SSDs featuring SF-3700 controllers, we are still seeing some SF-2200 based SSDs released in the market. A few years ago, SandForce SSDs saturated the marketplace as they were the go to for most companies, however as of late, this has changed. A lot more options are out there for companies to choose from. Companies such as Marvell, Silicon Motion, and Phison all make very competitive controller and SSD design options. As a matter of fact, most of our recent reviews are of SSDs with controllers from each of these manufacturers. The last SandForce based SSD we reviewed was some time last year. Having said that, while the SF-2281 controller is going on four years old, it still competes well with these more modern controllers."

  • "Corsair is one of the leading brands in the All In One liquid cooling solutions market. By teaming up with Asetek and Cool IT they are able to use the latest technology and add to these provided cooling solutions their own little trademarks. Lately the AIO market is closing the gap on the Do it Yourself market, this performance wise; the generated noise to deliver the best cooling can still be somewhat over the top, though by introducing the 140mm fan versions a better performance versus noise ratio was achieved. Nevertheless in this market one can never rest on its laurels. Other brands alike Fractal Design and LEPA introduced some interesting products that gave similar specced Hydro products a decent run for their money, though Corsair is back in 2015 with revamped versions of the H80i, H100i and H110. Today we test the flagship model the H110i GT, later this month the samples of the H80i GT and the H100i GTX should become available."

  • "Last year, Plextor introduced its M6e family of solid state drives. The drives are / were offered in M.2 and PCI Express flavors, though technically the PCIe-based models were the same M.2 drives parked in a PCIe-to-M.2 adapter card. Regardless of the technicalities involved, the Plextor M6e's specifications and performance were relatively strong, with peak read speeds topping the 770MB/s mark. The original Plextor M6e, however, wasn't much to look at. It featured a basic, green PCB and the M.2 SSD sat right in the middle for all to see. Plextor decided to kick things up a few notches with a new revision of the M6e, dubbed the Black Edition. The upcoming Plextor M6e Black Edition is similar to last year's model in terms of its underlying technology, but it has been revamped with a new black and red aesthetic that may appeal to modders and gamers."

Unfortunately whereas titles like EVE Valkyrie require players to spend a nice amount of money on VR headsets like the Occulus Rift just to be able to play (unless this changes until launch that is - we hope it does) the rest require the usual gaming peripherals for the best possible experience.

    To have the ability to access your files wherever and whenever is a great advantage to your productivity. This is why the cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Apple iCould are becoming popular. However, the lack of storage capacity and rising security concerns are two major challenges of public cloud services. For people who want to store their personal photos, videos and/or sensitive data on the cloud, creating your own cloud storage with Network Attached Storage (NAS) is a better idea. This option gives you higher storage capacities yet with lower security risks compared to public clouds.

  • "Ultra compact computers, otherwise known as small form factor PCs, are a rapidly increasing market as consumers realize that, for nearly all purposes other than gaming and video editing, Ultrabook-class hardware is "fast enough". I know that some of our readers will debate that fact, and we welcome the discussion, but as CPU architectures continue to improve in both performance and efficiency, you will be able to combine higher performance into smaller spaces. The Gigabyte BRIX platform is the exact result that you expect to see with that combination."

The exposed heatpipe base approach also lightens things up, the 160mm tall SE-214X weighs a modest 740grams. In addition to the copper heatpipes there is the aforementioned vertical aluminum rod going down through the center of the fins."

    "Being a gamer, one of the most important things we need is a mouse pad. The mouse pad helps us dictate our movements and our work flow. Most of the mouse pads these days are made out of a cloth and some made out of aluminum. Over the past few years we all have been seeing movements into control mousepads and also speed mouse pads. Different materials and products help aid in or don't help with tracking of the mouse sensor or even the mouse feet. Some gaming mice only like certain type of mouse pad to work correctly. Well today we are going to be taking a look at the Tt eSports Draconem mouse pad. Which offers 2 sides of control, high speed and high control and is made of thick aluminum."

    "I doubt there's a person out there who has never owned a USB flash drive (some girls i know haven't but you get my point) but lately with Tablets and large smartphones getting for good in our lives things have changed quite a bit. The reason is that conventional/standard USB flash drives can't be easily used (you can always purchase an adapter) with smartphones and tablets so if you happen to own one and you want to use it to its full extend getting one of the latest OTG (On the Go) models is obviously your best way out. Unfortunately until recently most OTG USB flash drives featured USB 2.0 compatible ports which were not ideal for copying large files and that at least to us was a large problem. USB 3.0 compatible OTG USB flash drives are now available however and the first one to land in our hands is the DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 64GB model by our friends over at Kingston."

  • "ARM has an interesting history of releasing products. The company was once in the shadowy background of the CPU world, but with the explosion of mobile devices and its relevance in that market, ARM has had to adjust how it approaches the public with their technologies. For years ARM has announced products and technology, only to see it ship one to two years down the line.

As a dual-tower solution, the NH-D14 and NH-D15 have the convenience of further spaced-apart heatpipes compared to a single tower heatsink where they bunch up closer together. This means heat is a lot less concentrated on a specific area and should be easier for the fan to push out. Would the same design idea work on a smaller heatsink?"

So you have Bluetooth and wired (aux in) playback, which is typical on most Bluetooth headsets, but with the Lavi-S you also have external speakers on the earcups.

Well since this is considered one of the main/top features of such PSU models usually the reason stands out in both the manufacturers websites and the packages so we all know that they main reason they choose to do so is as a "failsafe" (future proof) just in case the power standard changes in the near future from the current 24pin one to something newer and better so instead of getting a new PSU and thus spending twice as much in the long run consumers will just be required to get a new power cable.
