Corsair RM850i Review
Who needs Platinum-rated supplies, anyway? Corsair continues to revamp its range of power supplies in 2015. Incremental improvements to long-standing ranges make each series that little bit better. The HXi is a case in point, which is now very close in specification to the range-topping AXi released a while back.

This year-on-year improvement is also in evidence for Corsair's latest premium supply. The RM series was launched about two years ago, focussing on low-noise operation, but is now superceded by the RMi that arrives with a handful of improvements over an already-decent design.

Interestingly, looking at Corsair's website shows that RMi will co-exist with regular RM for a while yet. Outfitted with a new livery, 650W, 750W, 850W and 1,000W models are now becoming available, and we take a look at the 850W variant today.

Corsair RMi Series RM1000i Fully-Modular Power Supply Review
The latest range of Corsair PSUs are here at last! The new RMi series is something of an upgrade, offering higher quality components, higher performance and more features compared to the last generation; pretty much everything you would expect from the latest range of anything tech related. Corsair has a rock solid reputation in the system building market, delivering popular and competitive products from CPU coolers, chassis, power supplies and more, so we’re hoping to see them put up a good fight on our test bench today.

The RMi series has a lot in common with the current RM series PSU units, as it still offers all the high-end features you would expect; 80 Plus Gold Certification, fully modular cables, Zero RPM fan modes (up to 40% load), silent component selection (reduced coil whine) and LLC resonant mode topology w/ DC to DC (improves efficiency and voltage regulation). However, the RMi series is setting the bar even higher, with a 7 year warranty, all Japanese capacitors, full output at 50c, a fluid dynamic bearing fan, digital output for additional Corsair Link monitoring capabilities, as well as additional Corsair Link control capabilities, which includes custom fan profiles and the ability to toggle the +12v rail from multiple to single rail modes.

Corsair RMi Series RM650i Fully-Modular Power Supply Review
Corsair is one of the biggest names in the industry, covering a wide range of products from chassis, peripherals, cooling, audio and more importantly today, power supplies. Their latest range of PSUs promises to deliver some impressive performance figures and we’ve got two of their new RMi series products on our test bench and ready to rock. First up, we have the 650 watt unit, which to some may not sound like a lot of power, but from my experience, few systems pull more than 500 watts even at full load, so there’s no doubt in my mind that this unit is the one aimed at mid to high-end gaming systems and day-to-day users.

The RMi series is a big improvement on the current RM series of PSUs. They still offer the high-end features of the previous generation, such as 80 Plus Gold Certification, modular cables and more. With the added bonus of a 7-year warranty, full Japanese capacitors, a fluid dynamic bearing fans, digital output (Corsair Link), custom fan profiles and something for the enthusiast crowd, the ability to switch the +12v rail between multiple and single rail modes.

D-Link WiFi Smart Plug Review
We carry smart devices in our pockets, but for as smart as our personal gear is, our homes are severely lacking in technology. Without a wattmeter it is difficult to track how much power an outlet is using, and if you want to put an outlet on a schedule, current timers are clunky and confusing. Enter smart products and an initiative of having a connected home. D-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug will track power usage, set schedules, and allows remote operation of outlets.

Inateck HB4009 USB Hub Review
If you have had the pleasure of owning any Nintendo Game Boys, you will know about the Game Link Cable. For our readers who are a little younger, the Game Link Cable was a game changer in the late 1990s. As its name suggests, it is a cable for the Game Boy line that allowed players to connect their systems together for a multiplayer gaming experience. Depending on which Game Boy each player had, the Link Cable could be used for head-to-head competition, co-op play, and trading items; the list goes on. The only game I recall playing religiously with my friends that involved the Link Cable was Pokemon, specifically Red and Blue. If you wanted to be the very best, like no one ever was, you had to have the Game Link Cable. Although technology has improved significantly in the past fifteen years, and players who want to compete with each other and trade items no longer have to carry around a cable to do so, the sentimental and usability factor is still in play. Various implementations of wireless technology has been the primary way of transferring files from one device to another in the past decade. However, even with Wi-Fi, the experience was definitely not seamless. Hence, when I had the opportunity to review the Inateck HB4009 USB hub, I was ready to see what it was capable of. Will the Inateck HB4009 bring back fond memories of the Link Cable in connecting multiple devices together cross-platform, or will it be phased out and labeled irrelevant for today's users? Read on to find out!

OCZ Trion 100 (240GB, 480GB & 960GB) SSD Review: Bringing Toshiba to the Retail
Its been a year and a half since OCZ went bankrupt and Toshiba acquired its assets. In this time we have seen OCZ transition all of its products to Toshiba NAND and we have also discussed how Toshiba has helped OCZ with its quality/validation processes, but quite frankly we havent seen anything truly concrete coming out of the partnership. The Trion 100 is here to change that as its the first Toshiba built drive that will retail under OCZs brand and it also the first TLC NAND based SSD from the Toshiba-OCZ organization. Can it match the competition? Read on and find out!

OCZ TRION 100 - 240 and 480 GB SSD Review
We review the all new OCZ Trion series SSDs. These puppies are all about value in a dense and competitive market. This is the first OCZ SSD that is 100% Toshiba proprietary, that includes the controller and NAND flash memory. To make the product cost effective the TRION series come with the latest iteration of Toshiba TLC NAND flash memory. The end result is an SSD series that is fast with reads, versatile and competitive in terms of pricing.

Yes, in a storage world dominated by the big guns like Micron and Samsung margins are getting smaller and smaller. OCZ needed to address that to get the price per gigabyte down and offer a competitive solution that is fast, will be excellent in any PC and obviously a product that can compete with the Samsung 850 EVO in both price and performance.

To do so OCZ is now offering the Trion series SSD, an in-house Toshiba controller steers 19nm TLC based NAND flash memory from Toshiba to drive their SSDs to a bargain level. Now, writes in certain scenarios will will be hurt in performance with TLC, that is a fact... but as long as you do not write gigabytes continously over and over, and thus use Trion in a PC or Laptop for normal usage, then you are looking at an SSD performing in the 550 MB/sec range. Not bad at 37 cents per GB eh?

OCZ Trion 100 480GB & 960GB SSD Review
It is no secret that Crucial has been dominating the value end of the mainstream SSD marketplace since their MX200 and BX100 series were released. It should also come as no surprise that every other manufacturer has been thinking of ways to counteract the incredible value those drives brought to the table. While Intel has moved away from SATA controllers and into NVMe, Kingston has moved into more exotic form-factors, Samsung…well Samsung has done what they always do: change the market and use 3D NAND before everyone else. While each of those manufacturers have focused on enhancing the ability of high end SSDs, less expensive models have (for the most part) been left to languish. OCZ on the other hand has been relatively quiet and instead have taken the time to get their house in order before focusing on the entry level / 'budget' corner of the marketplace. The Trion 100 aims to change that in a big way.

Many enthusiasts have been paying close attention to OCZ since, under the tutelage of Toshiba they have the best chance of introducing some true competition in this critical corner of the marketplace again. In bygone years OCZ would have unleashed a torrent of different models aimed at counteracting the BX100 and MX200 series. The new lean and mean OCZ on the other hand have opted to split the difference and offer a single model that is not as expensive as the Crucial MX200, yet should offer more performance than the BX100.

The new Trion 100 hopes to capture consumers interested in both of those popular Crucial models by approaching things in a radically different manner than all previous Toshiba-backed OCZ drives. It is the first truly collaborative effort between Toshiba and OCZ, with OCZ doing the finalization, testing, and support for it. A lot has changed since OCZ approached launches in a scattershot way.

OCZ Trion 100 960 Gigabyte Review
With their Trion series, OCZ shows their first drives with TLC NAND. Therefore it's rather obvious that OCZ is about to join the price wars when it comes to budget SSDs. Looking for the controller we find a chip from Toshiba and we're rather curious to find out how this drive does in our review.

OCZ Trion 100 Series SSD Review: Driving Cost Out Of Solid State Storage
OCZ is launching a brand new series of solid state drives today, dubbed the Trion 100. Early prototypes of the drives were shown off at CES a few months back, but the drives are now ready for primetime. We should note that the Trion 100 series breaks some new ground for OCZ.

OCZ Trion 100 SSD Review
One of the big changes in the SSD marketplace in recent times was OCZ Technology (or OCZ Storage Solutions depending on your age) becoming part of the Toshiba group. Since that integration we have seen OCZ starting to take advantage of Toshiba’s resources and today we see for the first time an SSD under the OCZ brand which features Toshiba controller and NAND… and good news for those on a budget, this is a value orientated model. Welcome to our OCZ Trion SSD Review.
