Who says you can never have enough storage. Well you really can not have too much. I myself have a few different computers around my house for different tasks, and I like to back them up and also share files over the network. External hard drives and enclosures are a great tool for keeping around your house or even on the go. There are so many different enclosures and NAS boxes on the market. Some do RAID, other’s do JBOD, some can hold only 1 drive and some can go up to 4 drives. Some of the cool things with the technology of the past few years is that we now have eSATA and USB 3.0. USB 3.0 offers up to 5 Gbps while eSATA offers less speed at around 3 Gbps. So today we will be reviewing the Vantec NexStar HX2R dual SATA Hard Drive Enclosure, so stick around and see if it would make a nice addition to your desk or office.

The gaming industry has always been a big market and headphones are one of the biggest sellers.

I myself travel a good bit for LAN parties, with them ether being at a friend’s house or a larger LAN event like Pittco events right here in Pittsburgh. Traveling and carrying around a big case can sometimes be a pain. Then again there are not very many mATX cases that will suit the needs of gamers and fit their larger graphics cards and heatsinks. But Thermaltake was nice enough to send us over their Armor A30 case for us to take a look at. Let’s see if this case will suit my needs and the need of other gamers out there.
The iPad has been out for quite a while and now with the release of the iPad 2 we are going to see even more cases and other accessories come out.

There are so many coolers out there, but they are all different types. They range from tower coolers to low profile to water cooling. Over the past few years we have seen a lot of different coolers and designs, but the ones that have been used most frequently are the AIO (all-in-one) water coolers, where everything is included into a closed loop while giving you the benefits of water cooling along with being affordable and easy to setup.

Let’s take a look…
Today you see more and more home media servers and HTPC’s being sold on the market, along with the parts to build your own. I use a home media server for my PS3 and my other computers so that I can transfer and watch movies all over my house. This also gives me the ability to stream music to all of the PC’s and other wireless Devices. With all of our home electronics becoming more and more connected it’s convenient to have a media server. It allows me to control the music and movies in any of the rooms with PC’s on them with either my Android phone or my iPad. The possibilities are endless. In this review we will be taking a look at the Zotac IONITX-P-E which is an Mini-ITX motherboard with the processor embedded in to the motherboard. Mini-ITX is a very small form factor about half the size of a mATX setup.
