    There is the issue with the 520 SSD controller being unable to do AES-256 encryption. Not that it would matter to most people but it may be an issue for some.

    Hitachi 2TB $60AR (FreeShip) @ NewEgg

    I bought 4 of these from Newegg about 3 months ago and put them in a Synology 411j. They came well packaged in what looked to be OEM packaging (each drive was in its own box with plastic holders on each each keeping the drive secure. Working great so far. No issues. Was originally wanting...

    Staples $100 off any* tablet - valid through 7/30/2011

    The Staples I went to offered to order it shipped to store but then when I gave them the coupon, they said they couldn't adjust the price. This may be a YMMV though.

    Staples $100 off any* tablet - valid through 7/30/2011

    Well, the San Diego Office Depot store I went to brought out a corporate email that said they'd only honor the coupon on the Acer and Blackberry. Guess I'll wait.

    New Silverstone FT02

    If the retailer won't exchange it, I'd suggest that you try contacting Silverstone as it looks like it's a manufacturing defect vs shipping damage from the picture link you posted? The switches on my FT02 are secured to the top of the case with small phillips head screws. Does the fan and fan...

    Why is changing prices for Prime customers?

    I have Prime and when I do a search for a product on Amazon, Amazon does not always come up as the first selection. Sometimes it's a different vendor. Sometimes cheaper, sometimes not.

    D-Link DIR-685 Xtreme N Storage Router and Photo Frame - $89.99 - 1 Day Only

    Here's a review of the 685 that showed good performance but the negatives on the unit (fan noise, etc) outweighed it and resulted in a "not recommended" conclusion. I have a DIR-655 that's...

    choosing a physx card for hybrid with crossfire

    I just got 6970's I'm putting into crossfire. Would a 460GTX be able to be used for physics with them without affecting the performance too much. (I'm assuming hacked drivers would have to be used).

    New Silverstone FT02

    Just got my FT02B delivered via Fedex from Amazon. They didn't double box but the box and case didn't have any shipping damage. Couple questions though, should the side of the top panel that snaps on be flush with the sides of the case? The one I received had it bowing out slightly...

    New Silverstone FT02

    Has anyone ordered a black FT02 without the window off Amazon lately? I'm thinking about ordering and wanted to know if it was the revision with the honeycomb grills or the grills integrated with the fans? I did see a post here that a recently ordered silver FT02S from Amazon had the older...

    New i7-2600K build memory: 16GB DDR3 1866 or 1600?

    I've seen the articles on memory speeds on bit-tech and Tomshardware with the i7-2500/2600K CPUs. From those, it looks like tighter timings gives better performance than speed. From some searches on several forums also, it looks like 1600 and 1866 ram are the best choices. This weekend the...

    G.SKILL Ripjaws X 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 $74.99 FS w/2GB flash drive

    The 1866 Gskill is also on sale for $99.99. From what I've read, the speed difference may not be worth it but I would think it would have tighter timings at 1600 settings. Is it worth the $25 difference for tighter timings at 1600 or for a better OC? I've seen on bit-tech and Tomshardware...
