"Network Attached Storage (NAS) systems have found their way into homes just as they did with the office space years ago. Prices for NAS server products have dropped to the point where it's more expensive to buy the drive that goes in them than the actual storage device itself. Patriot, a company based around memory technologies, has recently began to sell the Patriot Corza Network Storage Server PCZ35SNAS2 to retailers for under $100. This dual-bay SATA NAS can accommodate either SSD or hard disk storage media, and offers RAID-0/1/JBOD configurations over a gigabit Ethernet network connection. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the transfer speeds for the Patriot Corza NAS against some of the biggest names in the industry, and determines just how much value you can get from this network storage appliance."
"The Corsair P64 is the smallest drive in the family but don't be fooled. The capacity is more than enough for your notebook or netbook. The numbers may claim that the drive isn't the fastest but the difference has been hard to notice in day to day use. The drive has been completely stutter free since day one and that's the biggest improvement and best reason to pick Corsair's Performance Series over everyone else in the market. Truly, the only change I can recommend is for Corsair to step up and stand by a much longer warranty than the two years it is currently offering."
"After several months of use, the Syncmaster 2233SW is a simple and cost effective 21.5" monitor that has the additional resolution bump up to 1920x1080. In fact, the 2233SW can be mistaken for a larger monitor thanks to its higher resolution and thin outer bezel."
"Thermaltake has done a pretty good job with the Element G. It has enough small touches like sheathed cables, fan/LED controller and SSD mounting to let you know they really put some thought into the case design. If you have a need for storage, there is plenty of space for your needs as well. The styling can go from subtle with the LEDs turned off to flashy with them turned on, so it really gives you a lot of options to fit your tastes."
"Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd has launched the PC-8N Mid Tower chassis ideal for PC systems. The hair-line brushed all aluminum chassis features advanced thermal dynamics, using one fan on the front (1x 120mm@1200RPM) to pump cool air into the chassis where it exhausts out the rear fan (1x 120mm@1200RPM). The 7x PCI expansion slots are vented and assist with airflow. The chassis front face has 4x 5.25”ODD bays and a 3.5”drive bay. The front face clips off easily and conveniently. The dimensions stand at 210x450x490mm (W, H, D). The top panel is removable and the entire system has smoothed edges, and an anti-vibration design."
The XPG Plus Series DDR3-2200+ v2.0 DRAM module is designed and guaranteed to run on future dual-channel platforms at incredible 2,200MHz killer speed with tight CL8-8-8-24 timings at a voltage of 1.65V, and are available in 1GBx2 and 2GBx2 dual-channel kits.
Through the latest Thermal Conductive Technology (TCT), the XPG Plus Series DDR3-2200 v2.0 DRAM module is built with the superior cooling design, which able to provide greater cooling environment for both DRAM IC and PCB (printed circuit board), to improve the performance and greater stability. Moreover, the doubling amount of copper in the PCB delivers low temperature and also improves the power efficiency for the XPG Plus Series DDR3-2200 v2.0 DRAM module."
The XPG SX95 SATA II 2.5” SSD features new architecture and controller design, provide outstanding transfer rates up to 230MB/sec read and 180MB/sec write (256GB/128GB), thanks to the onboard DRAM cache buffer. Whereas, the lower-density SSDs with 64GB or 32GB perform up to 210MB/sec and 140MB/sec read/write speeds.
Taking the advantages of latest SSD technology development, the XPG SX95 SATA II 2.5” SSD is an alternative solutions on reliability, high performance, low power consumption and temperature storage, able to increase the productivity of the PC users. The XPG SX95 also provides built-in ECC (Error Correction Code) to ensure high reliability of data transfer to maintain the system integrity. The advanced wear-leveling technology also guarantees longer lifespan and preserves the data integrity, and 1 million hour MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure) for long-term application. Another benefit of SX95 includes the latest function for firmware updates to maintain the best performance."

"Fremont, CA. July 22, 2009 — Corsair®, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer memory, power supplies, and flash memory products including solid-state drives, today re-introduced the popular Dominator GT line of memory modules. These modules had been removed from the market due to unacceptable failure levels of the Elpida “Hyper” components with which the modules are constructed."
“The issue with the Hyper RAMs was discovered with the help of the enthusiast community, and we worked closely with them to solve it,” stated John Beekley, VP of Applications Engineering at Corsair. “Our lab was able to correlate the failures to specific batches of early material, we worked very closely with Elpida to determine the root cause of the issue and to define the associated corrective actions to take. We are confident that every GT module using the Elpida Hyper IC Corsair ships from today will meet our strict quality and reliability standard.”
