Intel SSD DC S3700 Review 800GB and 200GB Enterprise SSD @ HCW
The Intel SSD DC S3700 introduces a new Intel SSD controller for the first time in years. With a heavy emphasis on consistent performance, these drives bode well for the future of Intel SSD products. It may also refresh your opinion on some current SSDs that don't perform as consistently as others once they enter a steady state.Read moreAsustor 6 Series: A Fresh Approach in the NAS Market @ Anandtech
We had the chance to meet up with Asustor at CES yesterday. Reviews of some of their offerings had popped up on various websites, and my initial impression was that Asus was aiming to get a toehold in the fast growing NAS market. I wasn't expecting much, but I was in for a pleasant surprise. Asustor was founded in August 2011 as an affiliate of the Asus group. It has around 70 employees, out of which 60 are in RD, with a majority involved in software / firmware development. Even though the company is pretty new, the employees trace back their roots to QNAP and Synology. Currently, Asustor has one NAS product family, the 6 Series. All the models use the Atom D2700 2.13 GHz dual core processor with 1 GB of SO-DIMM DDR3.Read morePatriot Gauntlet (PCGTW320S) @ Bjorn3D
Need more portable file storage, but cant use the Cloud? The Patriot Gauntlet may just be the device that you are looking for. Read moreLenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch Review @ TechReviewSource.com
To make mobile devices ultra-portable, many manufacturers forgo microSD slots. Apple has always been adamant about not giving users the option to expand their storage on any of their iOS devices. Even for Android and Windows devices that do support expansion, it is up to manufacturers to choose if they wish to implement such an option.
Yet another Windows 8 Ultrabook touch screen notebook is the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch. It has a 14-inch display with an attractive design, a backlit keyboard and a responsive touch screen. It does suffer from below average battery life and is light on ports.Read moreROCCAT KONE Pure Gaming Mouse @ Benchmark Reviews
For those of you out there that are looking for a nice basic but high spec gaming mouse, the ROCCAT KONE Pure Core Performance Gaming Mouse might well be just right for you. By stripping away some of the gimmicks and not so useful features of the KONE XTD, ROCCAT have been able to build a sleek beast with the KONE Pure and here at Benchmark Reviews we aim to test it to its fullest.Read morePatriot SuperSonic Rage XT 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ Nikktech
First of all it is smaller than both the KONE[+] and the KONE XTD, and it also does away with the LED strips and weight adjustment system, leaving a gaming peripheral that is a great pleasure to use. The KONE Pure uses the same Omron switches and R3 Pro-Aim laser sensor found in the KONE XTD but lovingly packs them into a more compact package. Think of the KONE Pure as more of a brother than a replacement to the KONE XTD and KONE[+].
From all the emails we get and all the comments we read around the web by many people it really seems that portable storage demands not only get to increase in capacity each day that goes by but also in speed since many of you keep asking about which is the fastest and smallest USB 3.0 compatible flash drive in the market currently. Of course the answer to that is not very simple because it's almost impossible for anyone to get his hands on every USB 3.0 flash drive out there by every single manufacturer to compare them against each other in order to see which the smallest and fastest one is. Still many of you know that we always do our best to deliver on your requests and so after digging around we found what just might be the perfect balance between performance and size, the SuperSonic Rage XT USB 3.0 Flash Drive by Patriot Memory.Read moreAMD CES 2013: Temash, Kabini, and Kaveri with a side of Sea Islands @ PC Perspective
The day after the official AMD presentation we were able to sit down with Leslie Sobon for a good hour and really dig into the products we are expecting throughout this next year. AMD did not officially announce any products, but they revealed more details about products on their roadmaps.Read moreLamptron FC9 Fan Controller Review @ Neoseeker
Lamptron is a manufacturer of computer and modding accessories which include water cooling, lighting and of course fan controllers. Fan controllers have traditionally been used by enthusiasts wanting more flexibility when it comes to controlling their cooling system. They offer an easy alternative to restarting the PC and entering the BIOS just to change the settings for the system's fans. With more individuals making the move to HTPC's for their home entertainment solutions, fan controllers are sure to see a rise in popularity.Read moreCorsair HX650 Gold Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets

So far, there are four models within Corsair's new HX power supply series with the 80 Plus certification: 650 W, 750 W, 850 W, and 1,050 W. We've already reviewed the 850 W model, which received our "Golden Award." Let's see if the 650 W model is also a good buy.Read moreFour Z77-Based Mini-ITX Motherboards, Reviewed @ Tom's Hardware

It's time for another AMD A10 series APU processor review. You know, back in May AMD introduced a series of AMD A10 'Trinity' APUs as mobile and notebook solutions. The new APU series is based on a new architecture that should bring its performance above previously released Llano based products from that same A series.Read moreAeroCool GT-1050SG 1050W Power Supply Review @ KitGuru
The new chips came with a codename that you all will recognize, Trinity. Trinity will thus be the successor of the current AMD A4, A6 and A8 Llano-processors. First and foremost, we are a bit of an enthusiast based website so I need to make it very clear here, the A10 and A8 APU processors are entry level to mid-range targeted processors, please do understand that very clearly. That means you are looking at reasonable desktop CPU experience versus a greatly enhanced integrated GPU, and all that for very interesting prices.
Tested today is the A10 5700 APU for example, costing roughly 115 EUR, and that's a four core processor with integrated graphics and motherbaord chipset. Not bad huh ? Based on AMDs APU architecture there will be several models to be found which we'll place in an overview later on.
Another new year and a raft of new hardware to analyse! Today are are looking at a new, high grade power supply from AeroCool. The GT-1050SG is a modular design which has achieved 80 Plus Gold Certification. The unit is very attractively designed and we will find out if the performance characteristics can match the eye catching appearance.Read more
