The Garmin Nuvi 50 is an entry-level GPS navigation system with a 5-inch touchscreen that has text that is large and easy to read.

A PSU loaded with features and top notch efficiency, it certainly surprised us in a very good way. Have a peek at the product and then let's head onwards into the review

OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 240 GB Review
OCC has published a review on the OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 240 GB

When you look at the performance of the RevoDrive 3 X2, it is clear that it excels in random workloads with larger file sizes and multiple threads. In the ATTO testing, the RevoDrive 3 X2 easily reaches its advertised read performance target of 1500 MB/s and comes quite close to the 1225 MB/s specification on the writes. Keep in mind that this was done with the RevoDrive 3 X2 as the primary boot drive - not a bare drive.

QNAP TS-419P II NAS Network Storage Server Review
Benchmark Reviews posted a review on the QNAP TS-419P II NAS Network Storage Server

The official category for the QNAP TS-419P II Turbo NAS is "Network Attached Storage", but in today's environment, think of it as "Connected Storage". By consolidating and providing direct access to your data via cloud services or on your mobile device, it's more about connectedness than the ability to serve up files over 1000BASE-T in your home or workspace. The TS-419P II is the next logical step up from a two-bay device and allows you to implement RAID 5 or 6; a four-bay device is really the bare minimum for a high availability NAS appliance. It's equipped with a faster Marvell CPU running at 2.0 GHz, a 25% increase in clock speed from previous models. Benchmark Reviews has tested several NAS units recently, let's take at look at how this latest unit compares.
