Antec Skeleton Case Review

We have been reviewing Antec cases for quite some time here at ThinkComputers. While most Antec cases are revolutionary and have many features you just don’t find on other cases they really are plain cases in the sense that they are not that flashy or stylish at all. Well Antec has a case that is anything but ordinary. This case looks nothing like any other case out there and it seems weird coming from a company like Antec, but remember most of their cases really are revolutionary and this one sure is. So without further ado I present the Skeleton Case from Antec!

Seasonic X Series 650W Modular Power Supply Review

The Seasonic X series is the Taiwanese OEM power supply establishment's first commercial retail series to achieve 80PLUS Gold certification. This means that the unit is 87% efficient at 20%, 50%, and 100% load. It supports multiple video cards, and uses a patented system which supplies at a lower amperage the same power using a voltage regulation module. ThinkComputers has the review of the 650W version, a medium-wattage, modular unit.

Today I will be looking at the Darth Vader USB Flash drive from Tyme Machines. Let’s see if it turns me to the dark side…

Trendnet TEW-649UB Mini Wireless N Review

<center><img src="http://www.bcchardware.com/gallery/albums/TEW-649UB/SizeComparison.thumb.jpg"></center><br> Trendnet has come a long way since the early days of super budget hardware. In fact, they have innovated a couple of the smallest 802.11n consumer products that we've seen - this adapter and the TEW-654TR Travel Router. Both of these products perform respectably and are priced very aggressively. I found the TEW-649UB online for as little as $20 - making it one of the cheapest and definitely the smallest 802.11n adapters on the market...<br><br><br> Via [<a href="http://www.bcchardware.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=8004&Itemid=40" target="new">BCCHardware</a>]
