Recently Indilinx, the makers of the ever-famous Barefoot solid state drive controller have released a new controller called the Barefoot ECO. This new controller allows drive manufacturers to use 32nm Intel NAND flash instead of the typical 40nm NAND flash we are used to seeing on previous solid state drives. These smaller flash chips have a smaller production cost, which will bring down the cost of the drives. Today we will be taking a look at the Solid 2 Series 60GB drive from OCZ, which is based on this new controller. This drive is also under $200 so let’s take a look!

Keep in mind that though most of us in the PC Hardware website realm generally fall in or near what I call the “extreme enthusiast”, more interested in overclocking, high-end gaming, or just owning powerful rigs…pretty much what you would have considered “an enthusiast” just a few years ago. But the term “enthusiast” has changed, encompassing a large number of new “enthusiasts”…the HTPC crowd, and those with high-end workstations. So rather than purchasing the upper end memory which will generally be purchased by the extreme enthusiast or overclocker, it is more likely that the buyer will get DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1333 memory. Today I will be looking at OCZ’s Platinum DDR3-1600 Low Voltage Dual Channel 4GB Memory Kit. It sports some tight timings of 7-7-7, and meets Intel’s requirement of doing its thing at a max of 1.65 volts. An has those beautiful platinum-plated OCZ Platinum heatspreaders. Will it live up to the expectations we have for OCZ memory? Read on to see!

The OCZ Elixir keyboard has been out for just about 2 years now. We were lucky enough to win one during CES at OCZ’s party. We normally would not review such an old keyboard, but looking around online we found this keyboard for $20 brand new, which for any keyboard is a great deal. So let’s take a look at the Alchemy Series Elixir Gaming keyboard and see if it’s the perfect keyboard for a gamer on a budget.
This year at CES OCZ, a company mainly known for system memory was not showing a single stick of memory at all! This year OCZ’s focus was all about SSD’s. They showed quite a few new models as well as some really cool enterprise solutions that they will be offering very soon. They also had a few new power supplies as well.
