    Anyone have the thinkpad tablet II?

    I hear that the USB port can't power portable hard drives or external optical drives other than the DVD burner that Lenovo sells as an accessory. Anyone here tested this?

    Samsung 500T // Clover Trail review

    One thing that does indeed bog down my ARM Android tablet and on my Galaxy Nexus is downloading bit torrent file transfers at 500 kB/s and faster. Could this be what the Gizmodo guy was referring to? Many mid to higher end ARM devices do indeed become nearly unusable under such circumstances...

    Excellent points to read for people who seem to be only interested in printed specs and not real world performance...

    Samsung F4EG

    Nobody is talking about 7200 rpm drives or slightly shorter access times in this thread at all. That's not the point... ;) --In addition, an array like that is going to take far more power to keep cool than an array of slightly slower drives that use less power and generate less heat and...

    Samsung F4EG

    Western Digital actually went out of their way to recommend against using some of their drives for RAID due to problems that they have when configured as such. Many of the users experienced these issues. As far as long term reliability, Samsung seems to have a better record in the last few...

    Samsung Story Issue

    Other than making sure you've tried a couple of different USB cables for the potential easy fix... If either of you is handy, it may be worth opening the case up and connecting the drive directly to a SATA connector on one PC's motherboard if you have that option. I'm making the assumption here...

    Samsung F4EG

    Wait for the Samsung F4 Ecogreen drives. They will supposedly draw almost 1/3 less power than even the existing F3 and the F3 already wins against the WD20EARS according to this review: http://www.storagereview.com/western_digital_caviar_green_2tb_review_wd20ears The Samsung drives also, in...

    NEW Version of Zotac H55ITX w/ USB 3.0 Coming Soon

    Yep, I had one of the earlier ones. That's why I said that I was no fan of Zotac in my first post. I had the same issues, but the board didn't die on me. It just wouldn't wake up if it went to sleep. It was a gaming system though with a 4770 in an SG05 case, so the wake/suspend issue wasn't...

    NEW Version of Zotac H55ITX w/ USB 3.0 Coming Soon

    That's true, Jeremy. I was really talking about products directly available to system builders/enthusiasts like us.

    NEW Version of Zotac H55ITX w/ USB 3.0 Coming Soon

    I'll add to this that I've had 3 Gigabyte boards that have actually flat-out died on me--including my last DS3 board that had its chipset overheat and fry the surrounding components. There have been plenty of issues with Gigabyte that have forced them to make running changes to their ATX and...

    NEW Version of Zotac H55ITX w/ USB 3.0 Coming Soon

    I will quote your original statement AGAIN. If this doesn't imply that you don't think that anything Zotac produces can "answer" or even challenge something produced by Gigabyte, then I'm really at a loss when trying to communicate with you... I'll stand by my original statement that says that...
