    Seagate is Shutting Down One of Its Largest HDD Assembly Plants

    this is a good move on seagates part, the industry is moving toward a place where consumers wont be buying hdd, but rather only business and enterprise for server use, any hard drive under 2tb right now might as well be an ssd. concentrate resources on higher capacity drives for data center use.

    Super Talent Announces USB 3.0 DRAM Disk

    my thoughts exactly aquinus, the speed of the usb 3 bus is 5gb/s or about 500MB/s, its basically just caching everything to memory and writing it back later, this seems really dumb, for simple write and read, but lets say youre working on something on the flash drive using different pcs, if it...

    Giada Unveils Intel "Skylake" Based NUC

    i always preferred msata due to the small form factor, m.2 is complicated, and most of the ssds are too long, there are small m.2 ssds, but they rarely cross 128gb, while msata is the smae size at 1tb...if 2242 size can become the norm in pci-e and get the size up to 1tb, then ill change my...

    Are there not any 120hz monitors under 24"?

    people who would spend the extra for 120hz, dont typically want a smaller screen, so it is unlikely you will find any smaller, get the 22 inch, but i must warn you that with your current setup of an 8800gt, it will never get proper use, you may want to up your gpu to something more current...

    How can you tell if your monitor will support high definition files?

    once your hardware can support it is all that matters, i personally have watched a 4k movie on a 640x480 display, your pc scales the signal down to the screen size once you hit the full screen button, so basically you will be watching an hd source movie in sd quality, on an sd display but it...

    Question For Powerline Users

    We know that a rock solid connection can only truly be guaranteed by direct ethernet cable, though wireless can be solid, its never as solid as a wired connection, your wireless connection speed on your server can be 300mb/s and yet you will never get over 10MB/s wireless to wireless, so i need...
