OCZ Vertex Real-World Test Caught on Tape: SSD vs HDD

"While all those benchmark charts displaying 200+mb/s read and 150+mb/s write are impressive to see, it's also good to actually have some idea of what that extra performance brings you in real life. We prepared two identical laptops with Windows 7 and Windows XP, one had a conventional HDD, the other a brand new OCZ Vertex SSD. The result is worth checking out."

In Win ‘NA 3.5? Hard Drive Enclosure Review @ CCE Reviews

na10"Most hard drive enclosures look like just that, hard drive enclosures.

The ceramic plate obviously sets it apart and can act as a place to set your keys (who hasn’t misplaced their keys before?) or other items like USB flash drives."

Palit GeForce GTX 260 Sonic 216SP @ Benchmark Reviews

"Because of the various factors working against desktop graphics, I'd say that now is the time for manufacturers to stop building a bigger mousetrap, and instead build it better. That's what Palit does, and their approach to discreet graphics products usually follows the rule of function before fashion. In this case, it's function and realistic performance needs before fashion and marketing hype. Sure, NVIDIA would lover for you to believe that SLI is necessary to play the newest video games, but oddly enough the nearly all new games still work fairly well with a single three-generation old video card. So where's the sweet spot? Benchmark Reviews tests the Palit GeForce GTX 260 Sonic 216SP model NE3X262SFT394-PM8026 video card to see just how much money you need to spend to enjoy fast frame rates at high resolution." CLICK HERE to read more from Benchmark Reviews!

Samsung Monochrome Laser Printer ML-2855ND Review @ CCE Reviews

"While we have moved into an age where e-mails and text messages flood our screens, a printer is still a tool any worker cannot live without. Features like duplex printing and network capabilities add value by saving the number of trees we cut down and by allowing everyone to print from their own computer instead of sharing a single PC or configuring a separate print server computer. Printing at a speed of 31ppm on letter size and 14.6ppm for duplex, you'll be able to spend more time working and less time waiting." CLICK HERE for the full review from CCE reviews!
