External storage is still very important to a lot of people. Especially people who use external storage for transferring files between 2 different computers or people use it for a work machine and a home machine. 2.5-inch hard drives have been overlooked for a while now, but since solid state drives use that form factor SilverStone has released the DS221 which is a dual bay 2.5-inch external hard drive enclosure that supports RAID. Let’s take a look…
The Armor Series from Thermaltake has been around for a few years now and has been quite popular. Most cases in the Armor series are in the mid to higher price range. Seeing that many case manufacturers are coming out with budget cases aimed at the mainstream Thermaltake has come out with the Armor A90, which comes into the market at under $100. It features a very unique design, 3 cooling fans, and the quality we are all used to seeing from Thermaltake. Let’s see if the Armor A90 becomes the best budget case we have looked at!
Well as you may have guessed we did not make the trip over to Taipei for Computex this year. We would have loved to make it, but it wasn’t in the cards for us this year. We have been following the show closely and many companies are showing off new products. Antec is one such company showing off new products and some of the same products we saw this year at CES. Although we were unable to make it they were nice enough to make a full booth tour video showcasing all of their products! Read on to check it out!

Fremont, CA – June 2, 2010 – Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, today announced its newest premium line of consumer power supplies, the High Current Pro series. Available in four 80 PLUS® Gold certified models, the High Current Pro series boasts unrivaled server-grade efficiency and reliability for powering the most demanding system builds.
The High Current Pro uses a unique full-bridge phase-shift topology for fast response time, superb efficiency and none of the annoying pitch noise typically found in higher-power PSUs. The HCP-750, HCP-850, HCP-1000 and HCP-1200 with 750 watts, 850 watts, 1000 watts and 1200 watts of Continuous Power, respectively, all achieve the highest 80 PLUS® certification level, Gold, delivering their rated Continuous Power with least 87% efficiency at 20%, 50% and 100% loads, even at up to 50⁰C – a rare distinction in energy efficiency attained by very few other power supplies. In addition, Active Power Factor Correction (Active PFC) on all models, with a power factor above 0.9 helps reduce electrical waste and further increases efficiency.
I had been looking for a nice laptop stand for a while, something that could be modified easily when I stumbled across a laptop stand at IKEA, the Swedish Household Superstore. The quality of the stand took me by surprise, and IKEA was selling them for a mere $2.50. Unable to pass up a deal like this, I bought several of them. I passed them along to some of my friends who owned laptops and kept a couple for myself. That’s when I got the idea to start modifying the ones I had into laptop coolers.
