Thecus N2310 2-Bay NAS Server
Thecus N2310 2-Bay NAS Server
The Thecus N2310 2-bay NAS server is a solid option if you are looking for a 2-bay device that doesn't waste your time and money with fancy extras and just gets down to serving your files from a RAID 0, 1, or JBOD array. For a small network this could be a good setup for sharing files and streaming media, and testing proved it will allow you to read or write at up to almost 90MB/s.
Synology Diskstation DS414j 4-Bay NAS Server
Synology Diskstation DS414j 4-Bay NAS Server
The Diskstation DS414j 4-Bay NAS server is just another fine example of what Synology is capable of. The aesthetics of the design are retro and understated, and with the minimal noise created by the device it will be able to disappear in most home or small office settings. With 4-bays available for configuration with the drives of your choice, you can choose just how much storage space you need, and what sort of drive array is best for your needs.
Kingston SSDNow mS200 240GB mSATA SSD
Kingston SSDNow mS200 240GB mSATA SSD
In real world use, the mS200 240GB mSATA SSD proved to be exactly what I expected. It made a notebook computer that didn't seem all that old seem so much faster and more enjoyable. The drive was capable of hitting its target read and write speeds (540MB/s and 530MB/s respectively) during the execution of benchmarks, but results will not look as impressive if the test selected uses incompressible data.
Kingston MobileLite Wireless G2 Card Reader
Kingston MobileLite Wireless G2 Card Reader
While these new features help make this an even more appealing device for travelling professionals, it still offers the same features that made the first version great for professionals and families. Being able to stream/share files with a handful of different wireless device simultaneously is still the key selling point, and the MobileLite Wireless G2 still handles that task with ease.
Actiontec PWR51WK01 Powerline Adapter Kit
Actiontec PWR51WK01 Powerline Adapter Kit
For me the Actiontec PWR51WK01 feature set could be very useful. Not just for streaming movies and shows from the Internet and NAS, but also to extend my wireless network to places I don't have coverage, like by the pool - all with a convenient plug and play set up. The Actiontec PWR51WK01 kit includes a PWR500 powerline adapter and a WPB3000 powerline/wireless N adapter.
Genius Ergo 8800 Wireless Mouse
Genius Ergo 8800 Wireless Mouse
The Genius Ergo 8800 Wireless Mouse is well built and incorporates all the features you would expect to find in your typical mouse. It has a fairly traditional design for universal (right-handed) comfort and it doesn't do anything extra that would require special software or setup time. Pretty much a plug and play device that is well suited for desktop use and perhaps some casual gaming.

From Around The Web
MSI Z97 MPower Overclocking Motherboard
While the Z97 MPower may be marketed for overclocking there is nothing in the design that says you are limited to that singular purpose, in fact that is just the opposite. hardwareasylum.com
ASUS GTX 780 STRIX OC 6GB Video Card
ASUS' new STRIX is one of the few 6GB GTX 780 cards on the market but it has another trick up its sleeve: with 0db fan technology the STRIX runs completely silent in some situations. hardwarecanucks.com
Noctua Industrial PPC Series Fans
At the time Noctua announced its redux fans and accessory kits, they also introduced a series of industrial "Protected Performance Cooling" fans. These are "ruggedised high-speed versions" of two of their most promising fans - the 120mm NF-F12 and the 140mm NF-A14. vortez.net
ADATA SP610 SSD Review (512GB)
Silicon Motion (SMI) has met with success as of late with release of their SM2246EN SATA 3 SSD controller. It was just under a year ago that we sat with Robert Fan to discuss the future of SM2246EN, while today it can be found in the PNY Optima, Corsair LX, as well as the ADATA SP610 of this report. Our initial thoughts with respect to the SM2246EN were that its success was depend on two things, value and performance. We believe ADATA may have found just that mix in the SP610 and our opinion is that this report is indicative of just that success we hope to see in many of today's SSD purchases. thessdreview.com
Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ Android Tablet
Last fall Benchmark Reviews examined the predecessor to the Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ tablet, and found that it represented an excellent value for the money. This time around, Lenovo ups the ante with a dramatically improved screen, faster quad-core Snapdragon processor, and double the memory of the earlier model. Add its unique design and construction and the Lenovo Yoga tablet becomes on of the more intriguing Android devices available. benchmarkreviews.com
MSI Z97 Gaming 9 AC Motherboard
Flagship parts on a mainstream platform can cause confusion for motherboard vendors. Do they go all-out, offering 4-way SLI and CrossFire via a PLX chip, with the knowledge that many people inclined for such configurations will use a HEDT platform instead? Or do they put that expenditure into a full-blooded feature set, accepting the potential hit in graphics and overclocking capabilities? kitguru.net
Silicon Power Superior SDXC UHS-1 64GB
In this article we will look upon another speedy SDXC card from Silicon Power, with rated speeds of 85MB/s reads and 45MB/s writes and a total storage space of 64GB. The UHS-1 standard guarantees a new photographic experience in high-speed photo shooting and Full-HD video capturing. madshrimps.be
Kingston SSDNow V310 960GB SSD Upgrade Kit
The continuous price free fall in the SSD market (due to increased competition and smaller manufacturing processes) has allowed manufacturers not only to forge new alliances and improve existing ones with NAND Flash controller manufacturers but also to finally release their very own high capacity models. Of course the price/capacity ratio crown is still held by regular HDDs and that's not going to change any time soon but nowadays you can purchase an 1TB SSD for less than $0.8 per GB which is quite a leap compared to just 4 years ago when you had to spend over three times as much. The best thing about that however is that PCIex SSD prices have also taken a dive so i expect such models to become quite popular even amongst regular consumers and gamers in the near future. Now as some of you know three days ago Kingston announced the availability of the latest addition in their SSDNow line the high capacity V310 960GB SSD model which features the 3108 NAND flash controller by PHISON and as expected we are amongst the very first people to actually take it for a ride. nikktech.com
ASRock Fatal1ty Z97 Killer Motherboard
ASRock has had a partnership with the Fatal1ty brand for a while now. With the introduction of Intel's Z97 chipset ASRock has released three Fatal1ty-branded motherboards, today we will be looking at the Fatal1ty Z97 Killer. Of course being Fatal1ty-branded we know that this board is going to cater to gamers. With that said it does offer gaming features like the Killer E2200 Intelligent Networking Platform, ASRock's Gaming Armor which has loads of features, Purity Sound 2 audio, ASRock Key Master software and you even get a 3 month premium license of XSplit to stream and broadcast your gaming skills. Is this the next motherboard for you? thinkcomputers.org
SanDisk Extreme Pro SSD (480GB)
SanDisk package the Extreme Pro in a compact box which gives a decent amount of product information as well as showing a clear image of the product. Inside we find the drive suspended in a plastic tray and wrapped in an anti-static bag. Bundled with the drive is some documentation, a bumper to expand the thickness and a small card which lets us know where to head for info and SanDisk's software. hardwareheaven.com
