ECS Z77H2-AX Review reported at 01:15 PM
category: Socket 1155 Motherboards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
ECS made sure to integrate in plenty of add-ins to more than justify the price tag, offering 3 different networking adapters, plenty of USB and SATA ports, not to mention support for 3-way NVIDIA SLI or AMD Crossfire. Couple that with its stock performance, and you have the makings of a champion.

Mach Xtreme MXUB3SES-32G Review reported at 01:12 PM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The Mach Xtreme MX-ES drive may not look like much. In fact, it looks so simple that you may easily mistake it for a cheap drive from some unknown manufacturer, which is too bad since the drive really packs a punch because of its included SLC flash memory. The drive is, even with SLC memory, not too expensive, especially because it offers an excellent average of 130 MB/s write and a still impressive average of 160 MB/s read. The MX-EX is, while neither of these numbers are as high as the advertised ones, still one of the fastest sticks we have tested in terms of read performance, and it flat out beats the competition by miles when being written to. Mach Xtreme may not have a clue about keeping a company image through proper, uniform housing and branding of products, but the MX-ES is still, even if Mach Xtreme is being overly optimistic with their advertised performance, one of the quickest drives we have tested to date."

Netgear R6300 Review reported at 12:48 PM
category: Internet Routers     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
Considering the fact that you can get a good router for less than half that price, this may seem excessive. However, this router truly does deliver and is prepared for the next generation of Wi-Fi devices. There are not many options for Gigabit routers on the market right now, but if you have one, you are set up for the long-term. Considering the features, performance, and future capability of the R6300, this device is worth the asking price.

Corsair Neutron & Neutron GTX Review reported at 12:45 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
This level of innovation truly is a breath of fresh air and harkens us back to the original Vertex 1 days. It really has been long overdue, but someone has finally proven the SF2281 + Toggle Mode NAND combination to be inferior in nearly every way possible.

Cougar Challenger Review reported at 12:40 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
Overall there's nothing really to dislike about this case in terms of function aside from the massive cable management holes in the motherboard tray. Without grommets or any way of hiding cabling it is a bit difficult to arrange wiring in such a way that keeps it entirely out of sight. This isn't a terrible concession on a somewhat less-expensive case but it does make a build take a bit longer since the side panel does include a large window to show off your wiring prowess (or lack thereof).

Corsair AX1200i Review reported at 12:39 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
Corsair’s previous AX series flagship PSU, AX1200, was good but not very different from other same-class products. Its successor, the AX1200i model, even though based on a similar platform from the same second-tier contract maker, is an improvement in nearly every aspect. It offers more stable voltages, higher efficiency and lower voltage ripple. Its acoustic performance has also improved dramatically. You can forget about the fan altogether up to 50% load. Moreover, even under maximum load this PSU is the quietest of all other units with the similar wattage we have tested so far.
