  • "You can look at the MSI Gaming 24 6QE All-in-One in a number of different ways and the most obvious (and laziest) is to compare it with Apple iMac. This misses the point because iMac comes in 21.5-inch and 27-inch sizes and places the emphasis on a svelte design where two of the three models sport a high resolution Retina display. The closest match is the 21.5-inch non-Retina iMac which uses Intel Iris Pro graphics and which has soldered RAM and cannot be upgraded. By contrast the MSI Gaming 24 6QE packs a GTX 960M graphics chip and has spare slots for a second M.2 SSD and a second DDR4 RAM module so the two All-in-Ones are actually quite different. You may have spotted the 6QE suffix to the model name which is significant as it refers to the 6th Gen Skylake processor and associated hardware."

    "When it comes to headphones there are two types of people typically, those we prefer in-ear headphones (earbuds) and those who prefer over-ear or on-ear headphones. When it comes to selecting a pair of on-ear headphones you definitely want them to be comfortable and sound good, but at the same time you want them to look good as well. The Bluetooth headphones we are taking a look at today look pretty awesome, so hopefully they sound good and are comfortable too. The headphones I’m talking about are the Kinivo URBN, which feature 40 mm drivers, an awesome carrying case, a load of controls, and much more. Let’s take a look and see what the URBN headphones are all about."

    "Every feature of the Ferrari 458 is about creating pure speed. 597 hp are coaxed from the mid-engine mounted 4.5L V8; that power blasts its way through a 7 speed dual-clutch paddle shifted transmission where it is unleashed into the rear wheels to launch you up to orbit at 210 mph. Every aspect of the exterior of this modern day supercar is designed to lend itself to creating pure unadulterated speed. Meanwhile the exquisite interior reminds you that yes indeed you are certainly in a $243,090 Ferrari. It’s no surprise then that NZXT’s case designer took direct inspiration from the 458 for their first ever small form factor chassis, the Manta. From the flowing lines and curves to the recessed intakes the Manta says, I too want to go fast, I too am elegantly and intelligently put together.

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.

The 600k was to sport the same quality of construction, but eschew most of the additional function keys of the 700k. 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.

  • "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?"

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.

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."

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.

As its model number denotes, this barebone is based on Intel's H97 chipset, making it compatible with 4th generation Haswell CPUs (its cooling system can support up to 65 W TDP CPUs). Shuttle advertises it as a blend of energy efficiency and performance, and our tests show their claims to be true."

These devices essentially marry what used to be two separate drives - an external USB device and a media device that can stream data wirelessly to connected devices. 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."

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.

    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."

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. It also gives you more user configurable options which will allow you take full control of your cloud storage. The bottom line is if iCloud, Sony PS network and Target can get hacked, theres probably no place safer than your own home.

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."

The regular Pandora has an ICON LCD display on the front and costs £90 with plain side panels or £95 if you go for the windowed version. The model we have here is the Pandora in black with windows and ICON display so it is the most expensive version at £95."

    "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."

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?"

First off the headset features 40 mm drivers that will give you a balanced range of bass, midrange and treble tones. The really interesting thing about this headset is that it has three different play modes. 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. This allows you to share the music you are listening to with your friends and the people around you. Will this 2-in-1 device replace the need for a separate Bluetooth headset and speaker?

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.
