Silicon Power SDHC 16GB Class 10 Memory Card

You can always count on someone. Here I am stressing because a cheap market chained brand SDHC (Class 6) card fell over 3 times during our review of the Sanyo Xacti VPC - FH1 Camcorder. But lo' and behold Silicon Power via Tasco.com.au came to the rescue.
They aleady know their Class 6 works in the Sanyo ok but they are rushing me their latest and greatest off their assembly line, a 16GB Class 10 SDHC memory card. 
We suspect that inferior SDHC cards are causing a lot of problems with all sorts of high demand equipment.

In the Sanyo review we made the bold statement that “Cards just aint cards”.

Will this Memory card deliver for the Sanyo Xacti VPC FH-1 Camcorder?

We shall wait and see!

Quite a Promise: ZERO

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Upcoming Reviews

Read more: Quite a Promise: ZEROSometimes getting (a) ZERO isn't too bad... and when it comes from Promise Technology, whose NAS products have been a favourite on our editorial team, this will be a box to look out for.

Particularly if all that NAS and RAID stuff is too finicky to set up for you as the ZERO stands for zero configuration! The picture on the left shows a prototype when it initially was still called SmartStor SNS -- Simple Network Storage.

We'll see if that is really true in a few weeks time.

In the meantime, Promise have just released the NS4600 SR1. That stands for Service Release 1, by the way, which means better performance and lots of new features. We may expand on our NS4600 experiences sometime later as well.

Being the type of person that gets lost all too easily and does more laps of the carpark than I'm willing to admit - the miniHomer Key-Chain GPS Position Finder looks like a valuable contribution to my keyring.

 

We'll be reviewing this high-tech, reverse navigation system that claims it can navigate you back to a previously marked location in any weather condition -  so stay tuned for the full write up.

 

UPDATE: The miniHomer has arrived at HeadQuarters -- review to follow soon (if we don't get lost doing other things in the meantime...)

Intel's Core i9 (Gulftown) Platform Review Benchmarks

Read more: Intel's Core i9 (Gulftown) Platform Review BenchmarksWe know the general trend is unchanging: every new CPU generation is faster, smaller, cheaper. And yet, the new i9 from Intel will blow your socks off with its performance (and initially also a hole in your wallet!).

If you can't wait till its release early next year (only a few months away actually) here are some benchmarks culled from various sites who already tested the i9, also known as Gulftown.

Particularly for tasks such as 3D modeling and video encoding, the 2.8GHz Core i9 is about 50 percent faster than a Core i7 at the same clock speed.
