The high efficiency also allows it to operate at fairly low temperatures as little energy is wasted as heat. Even though most hardcore enthusiasts would find this unit's electrical performance mediocre, we believe that the ripple suppression and voltage regulation of the Earthwatts Platinum 650W unit is more than acceptable for a sub-$100 product..."

PRESS RELEASE

Sennheiser Puts Gamers in the Center of the Action with New PC Gaming Headsets, Including PC 323D Surround Headset Powered by Dolby®

Old Lyme, Conn., August 13, 2012 - Audio specialist Sennheiser introduced two new gaming headsets including the PC 323D premium headset, which has advanced surround features powered by Dolby®, and the PC 310, an attractive headset designed for entry-level gamers who want to discover Sennheiser legendary gaming sound for the first time.

PC 323D puts the gamer in the center of the action
The new PC 323D premium headset, with a street price of $159.95, combines superior Sennheiser sound with 7.1 super-realistic surround powered by Dolby® Headphone and Dolby® ProLogic® IIx. It also features the CircleFlex™ design, which automatically adjusts to the head.

The PC 323D instantly surrounds you with legendary, superior Sennheiser sound, which has been combined with the latest 7.1 surround sound powered by Dolby® Headphone and Dolby® ProLogic® IIx. No internal sound card is needed since the PC 323D comes with its own 3D G4ME1 7.1 USB sound card attached — making installation hassle-free. This winning combination delivers audio so realistic that the gamer can pinpoint shouts and explosions not just from the left or right, but from seven different directions. With the PC 323D, it’s no longer just about hearing the action – it’s about being in the center of it.

Unmatched comfort
The open-acoustic design of the PC 323D keeps the head cool for hours, and the unique CircleFlex™ design ensures that the ear pads rotate and adjust automatically to the gamer’s head, making the game experience a comfortable thrill.

“We’ve made this spectacular gaming headset for gamers who seek the highest quality in surround sound combined with great wearing comfort," commented Tori Seliokas, channel manager, Telecommunications, Sennheiser. "With the PC 323D, you don’t need a full surround system at home. This headset has you fully covered."

It’s also easy to communicate with fellow gamers. The pro noise-canceling microphone reduces ambient noise for crystal-clear conversations, and allows the user to mute the microphone by simply raising the boom arm. Adjusting the volume control is just as easy, since it’s been placed intuitively on the right ear cup.

PC 310 enables new gamers to hear the difference of Sennheiser
Now it’s even easier for newcomers to experience the world of Sennheiser gaming sound thanks to the launch of the PC 310. Aimed at entry-level gamers, the PC 310, which has a street price of $59.95, features legendary Sennheiser sound, a noise canceling microphone and very soft, open-acoustic ear cups – all made in a timeless design.

Like the entire range of Sennheiser products, the PC 323D and the PC 310 are built to last and come with Sennheiser’s two-year worldwide warranty.

Thecus® and the Personal Cloud

The power of the personal cloud for ultimate security and flexibility


th0108/13/2012- Cloud computing is inevitable, so many people use cloud computing technology even if they don’t fully understand the concept. There are three types of cloud computing, public, private/personal and hybrid cloud. Some might get confused with personal and private cloud concepts, in short a private cloud is often utilized by enterprises and usually is more complex and a personal cloud is often associated with personal use and is much easier to manage. Below, we’ll focus on the personal cloud as more and more users are opting for this technology, due to its convenience and easy management.

Benefits of personal cloud

  • Security is paramount
  • Built using your resources and data center
  • Better overall system flexibility
  • Sync data to the personal cloud

 

Secure your data

One reason personal cloud is making its way into the mainstream is because of the large protection that home and/or enterprise networks has to offer. Compared to the public cloud, personal cloud has more protection as the amount of people that has access to your vital data is limited. With paramount security available, users can implement and take advantage of personal cloud by accessing and sharing content via mobile device away from home. Another key feature about personal cloud security is its ability to carry on business process without security policies from the public cloud.

Utilizing own resources

Although personal cloud requires the user to provide the software and infrastructure, the benefits outweigh the negatives. Personal cloud does cost more in the long run compared to the public cloud. However, users are investing in something more than just a service and storage space over the cloud. Thecus® provides award winning NAS products that offer a great deal when it comes to cost vs. storage capacity. Setting up a personal cloud with Thecus® NAS is simply and cost effective.

Better overall flexibility

Thecus® offers great flexibility when it comes to personal cloud technology, mobile modules like T-OnTheGo allows for users to access and manage data on their personal cloud at anytime. Remote access is the key benefit when implementing a personal cloud, it’s more likely that users are traveling on day-to-day basis due to work or other obligations, and to carry your computer or storage devices along with you can be a major burden. With Thecus® personal cloud infrastructure and mobile applications, storing vital data on the cloud with paramount security provides flexibly and peace of mind.

In conclusion

The personal cloud requires for the user to supply the infrastructure and cover overhead cost, however the security and flexibility offered is worth it for those who worry about data hacks and issues. Usually personal cloud users are those who interact with top-secret information or government related occupations where data loss can make or break them. The good news is that Thecus® provides the infrastructure and mobile applications that can easily initiate personal cloud needs.
