eTeknix have done something special lately, and that involves the purchasing of several expensive items to allow us to?perform?legitimate power supply tests including an ATE load tester, digital?power?meter and oscilloscope. Due to this, we want to start things off with a bit of a bang and we will start pumping out the PSU reviews within the next week *fingers crossed* for you all to see. With this in mind, we have teamed up with Enermax to?offer?one lucky reader the chance to win one of their top spec power supplies; the MaxRevo 1350W. I don't need to sell this power supply to anyone, as we are all aware as to the quality and overall wow factor behind Enermax power supplies and instead, will simply leave you with the product page to drool over?here. The prize is so awesome that only one is available to one lucky reader from anywhere in the world so make sure you get your entry in.

Shortly after that announcement, a Corsair Force GT SATA 3 240GB SSD arrived at the office and we couldn't resist the chance to throw it on the bench and see the numbers this GT could push. From the looks of it at least, the GT is on fire!

With the fast increasing amount of digital data being stored on home PCs and laptops its easy to feel restricted when using it on your PC or laptop. Its therefore important to consider options which allow you to access your data more easily to allow it to be shared and accessed as it was intended to be. There are many options to consider when looking at ways to access your digital content around your home. You could consider building a media centre which could then be used as a PVR as well or you could look to purchase a media player to connect to your PCs shared content. Alternatively you could consider to upgrade your TV to one of the new generation which supports connecting to your home network and allowing you to access your data. We take a look at the PBO (Patriot Box Office) Core Media Player from Patriot which are more widely known for there high performance memory. The Patriot Box Office opens up options to allow movies / video, music and pictures to be accessed on the family TV allowing all the family to take advantage of the digital content from multiple sources.
