Aside from the insanely great performance, shock resistance, and low power consumption, one benefit of SSDs is the ability for them to be extremely compact. As a SSD only requires silicon rather than spinning disks, SSD form factor is really only dictated by how a company chooses to arrange the chips onboard.
As such, we’re starting to see quite a few external SSDs take advantage of this form factor flexibility. One such product is the VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD which crams a full SSD into a form factor just slightly bigger than your average flash drive.VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket [...]
As a hardware reviewer, there comes a time when the “wow, I didn’t know I needed this” epiphany hits. Generally we stick with reviewing certain types of hardware that we review often and we tend to forget about some of the smaller, essential products until they are presented right before us.

When you look at the AMD Radeon graphics card market today, there are only a couple AIB manufacturers that stand out. One of those is XFX. They don’t really have the coolest designs (no pun intended) nor do they have the chapest cards either. But, what attracts most people to their cards is their double lifetime warranty and their “modder friendliness”.
Well, that’s all about to change because XFX has recently discontinued their double lifetime warranty and are moving into a more standard x year warranty starting with their new 7000 series video cards. The reason? Well, according to XFX, the “Double Lifetime warranty just wasn’t sustainable [...]
