SanDisk Ultra Plus Review reported at 07:42 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
So that brings us to value where the Ultra Plus 256GB retails at £125 which places it in a competitive position. A solid all round drive for those looking to move to an SSD for the first time but the real benefits of this model are for mobile users.

BitFenix Ghost Review reported at 05:56 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
Although initially the Ghost didn't really impress us (perhaps because we thought it would be a high-end PC case) in the end it does come with quite a few interesting features that make it a very good overall choice for people on a rather tight budget. It has a satisfactory build quality level (it could however be better), there's plenty of room for an 240mm radiator at the top, it has room for a total of up to 6 fans (comes with two pre-installed ones), the Serenitek noise-dampening material keeps audio levels to a minimum, the front door can be made to open either from the left or the right (via the removable hinges), the top SATA docking station is quite a convenient addition and finally there's plenty of room inside for most configurations possible.

Enermax Triathlor FC Review reported at 09:47 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
What we saw in the Triathlor FC models in our simple test were very decent. When a slight to medium load was put on the system we saw just a small drop in the 3v and 5v voltage rails. When a stouter load was placed on it we saw the voltage drop even greater. But they never were to a point where we were concerned. This could be due to the way the DC to DC operation works.

Kingston HyperX 10th Anniversary Edition DDR3-2400 4x4GB Kit Review reported at 09:46 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
"When you go out and buy a HyperX product you know that it is going to perform great and this memory kit is no different. This kit celebrates Kingston’s 10th Anniversary of HyperX, and rightfully so. This kit is solid and performs great. I actually was not sure that I would even be able to run the kit in my X79 system. The highest frequency I’ve ever run memory at in the system was 2333MHz and that was at an overclock. Running memory at 2400MHz on X79 is impressive and this kit did it without an issue at all."

AeroCool Strike-X X-1000 Review reported at 09:41 AM
category: Monitor Coolers     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"If the design of Aerocool’s Strike-X X-1000 fan controller appeals to you, and you are looking for a low cost but still good quality entry into the fan controller market then I would definitely recommend this product. It does have a fairly significant flaw in not offering enough support for 4 pin fans, but considering 4 pin fans can be controlled by the motherboard and the majority of case fans are actually 3 pins not 4 pins, this flaw is “overlook-able” to some extent."

Shuttle DS61 Review reported at 09:39 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
"The DS61 is a nice little barebone from Shuttle, which supports both Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge CPUs and besides the CPU, it only needs some RAM (SODIMM) and a storage drive (HDD/SSD) in order to operate. The barebone is also shipped with a VESA mount for added value and the preinstalled CPU cooler is enhanced for better cooling, sporting two heatpipes and is ventilated by a dual-fan system."

ZOTAC ZBOX AD06 Plus Review reported at 09:32 AM
category: Small Form Factor     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The Zotac ZBOX AD06 Plus is clearly aimed to take the budget-minded user by storm. Utilizing the brand's signature chassis, the system works well in its configuration while still giving the customer the ability to grab the non-Plus variant for an upgrade with an SSD or more memory. That said, the E2 is not quite as fast, which may result in others willing to spend more money on more powerful ZBOXES instead. The AD06 does shine when used in its intended environment as a basic system for general tasks like surfing and office work, or HTPC duties. It manages to handle all these tasks quite well for its price point and draws very little power in the process - perfect if you are into being green."

DeepCool M3 Review reported at 09:20 AM
category: Cooling - Other     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
"The DeepCool M3 Cooling Pad performed well overall. Although it did not provide a huge amount of direct cooling to the laptops, there was a measurable drop. Certainly the materials and design of the cooling pad minimizes the direct transfer of heat from the laptop bottom making it comfortable to position on your lap, should you be required to do so."

Intel SSD 335 Review reported at 09:15 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Real World Labs
Article Quote:
Having just launched, pricing for the Intel 335 180GB is a bit high and we expect it will drop shortly. When I say a bit high I mean in comparison to the 240GB version after all, you can buy the 180GB 335 today for under $1/GB. You really get what you pay for because Intel is a name that’s synonymous with quality, reliability and performance making the 335 a piece of hardware worth spending your hard earned money on. There is added value when you purchase an Intel 335 because it ships with the most complete accessory and software package on the market today. Is it the fastest drive you can buy? No but, it delivers top notch performance AND value that makes the Intel 335 ideal for your next build or upgrade.

BitFenix Spectre Pro & Spectre Review reported at 09:12 AM
category: Case Cooling Solutions     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
As the results show, the Spectre Pro PWM series delivered underwhelming performance. They were consistently the weakest performing and near-loudest fans in all our testing. On the other hand the Spectre LED PWM series demonstrated an exceptional level of performance to noise. In fact I would go as far to say as these are probably best-in-class when you consider the prices of £6.94 for the 120mm model and £10.41 for the 140mm model. This makes the Spectre LED PWM series an absolute must buy for anyone looking for a high performance fan with a super-low price tag.

Toshiba STOR.E SLIM Review reported at 09:07 AM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"Of course in the end you almost always get what you pay for and so for people who want the high quality brushed aluminum exterior along with the very slim design and the level of performance offered by the STOR.E SLIM then the price shouldn't be a problem. On the other hand if you care not about the size and type of enclosure and performance is not your top priority there are even 1TB models at around the same price tag currently available in the market. Personally although i always use a rugged portable hard drive for my sensitive data the STOR.E SLIM would be my first choice if i needed to carry data around with me and because of that it gets our Golden Award."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan 3-way/4-way SLI Review reported at 08:50 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
Two or more GTX Titans make sense only if you will game on three or more monitors and want to max out graphics settings. A second Titan is even required to get a smooth experience in certain games with three monitors and maximum settings. For a single Full HD monitor and max settings a single GTX Titan is more than enough for the current crop of games.

Netgear WN3500RP Review reported at 08:42 AM
category: Wireless Network Adaptors     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
"With the majority of high end routers costing upwards of £150 today the £80 RRP fits in well, especially with the added features outlined. A worthy addition to a home network and certainly one that will solve that annoying dead spot in the upstairs toilet."
