Synology Diskstation DS415play 4-Bay NAS Server
Synology Diskstation DS415play 4-Bay NAS Server
The hardware video transcoding could be a big selling point to people with large movie collections that might not all be recorded in common formats. Couple the hardware transcoding, DLNA certification, and the media serving plugins / apps, and the DS415play is all set to be the hub of your home entertainment, no matter what your other hardware includes... smart TVs, Media Center PCs, mobile devices, media players, etc.
D-Link DIR-880L AC1900 Wi-Fi Router
D-Link DIR-880L AC1900 Wi-Fi Router
For someone who is looking for a new router and wants to have the ability to get all of their current and (foreseeable) future wireless devices connected with ease, the D-Link DIR-880L AC1900 Wi-Fi router is a great choice. You get support for wireless b, g, n, a, and ac - as well as four Gigabit wired ports. The user interface is visually appealing and easy to navigate, and getting any of your devices connected to each other and the Internet should be simple.
Motorola Moto G on Republic Wireless
Motorola Moto G on Republic Wireless
I think the Motorola Moto G with Republic Wireless service may hit the sweet spot for many people tired of paying high cell phone bills. The Moto G is a solid phone that performs really well, and the network in my area had less dead zones than T-Mobile and AT&T. As is the case with all discount providers there are some concessions you make to get these lower prices, but the concessions at Republic Wireless seem minor.
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.

Seagate Wireless Plus 2TB Mobile Device Storage
I'm well aware that this may sound like a fairy tale for some of you but once upon a time we all used to carry around 1.44" floppy disks with which we shared games, midi tunes (i recall several groups attending various competitions for such things - some are now scene groups) and software with our friends at school. Now although floppies where eventually replaced by CDs and later on by DVDs still i can't remember a time when we used to carry large amounts of data with us at least not until the first 2GB USB flash drives made their appearance in the market over a decade ago. Of course as you all know now things have changed quite a bit and so most people carry around at least a high capacity USB flash drive while professionals and enthusiasts (even gamers) have no other choice but to carry 2.5/3.5" portable hard drives with them in order to store all the data they need. nikktech.com
Kingston SSDNow V310 SSD (960GB)
A few weeks back, we published our announcement of Kingstons newest v310 SSD, which features just shy of 1 TB of storage. It was not greeted with open arms. To explain the controversy we were met with from the moment we published this story, the 1TB V310 had a MSRP of $928.00, and random 4K read speeds are stated as (up to) 27,000 IOPS, with random 4K write speeds of (up to) 10,500 IOPS. If you are looking for the slickest and fastest drive on the market today, you can stop reading here. There are other drives available that can achieve higher throughput and at, unfortunately, a lower cost. As we do for every SSD, we requested a review sample nonetheless, and were shocked to find one in the mail just a few days before the Flash memory Summit. thessdreview.com
Zotac's Zbox ID92 mini-PC
In recent months, we've reviewed two Gigabyte mini-PCs with Haswell inside. In light of those experiences, we figured we'd take a look at one of Zotac's newest Zbox systems: a 7.4" x 7.4" x 2" machine with a 35W Haswell processor, room for dual storage devices, and generous connectivity. techreport.com
Netgear EX6200 AC1200 Extender
As our homes become filled with wireless devices the need for strong signal in all areas rises. To help us in those situations manufacturers of routers often release products which extend the main router signal to other areas of our home or office, maybe even the garden. Today we take a look at the Netgear EX6200, their latest Extender which is designed to boost our 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks for those using B, G, N and AC Wi-Fi. hardwareheaven.com

Today, we have chance to look at a uniquely designed SFF PC chassis that can operate in complete silence. We have on our test table today the Streacom FC8 Evo Fanless Chassis. Also, when we refer to it being silent, we really mean it, because the Streacom FC8 Evo case features a completely fanless design. Perhaps its sleek aesthetics will prove to be a talking point of your entertainment center. Let's review it and find out. pureoverclock.com

How well does the keyboard hold up? Lets find out… kitguru.net

QNAP HS-210 Network Attached Storage Server
If this website was Facebook, and this page was the profile for some teenage guy or girl, then this paragraph will be one of those "to be honest" comments to share on someone's timeline. So, here we go. To be honest, when I first saw the QNAP HS-210, I thought it would have been the perfect media streaming box to replace the "average" QNAP NMP-1000 I have reviewed back in March 2010. The HS-210's clean design, slim enclosure, and promised performance is vastly superior to anything of the past. aphnetworks.com
