    The Mobi is unlike most other SD cards. Whilst it still saves photos in the normal way, it lets you access them in a completely different way. Included in the card is a WiFi hotspot that you can access with a smartphone or tablet app (IOS / Android / Kindle Fire). The process is extremely simple; all you have to do is pair your smartphone to the card using the 10 digit ...

    You know, it's nice and refreshing to review a different type of product for a change. Today we have the Audio Technica ATH-A900X, which are high grade headphones. They're often thought of as entry-level audiophile headphones. We recently wrote a guide about audio products that you should check out. These headphones, the A900X, are some of the most favored in the sub $200 range. Time to see if they live up to their reputation!

    This isn't a gaming headset, which you may be accustomed to seeing here at GND-Tech, since we're primarily a gaming website. There's no microphone included, nor can you attach one by conventional means. It's designed for high quality audio playback. Despite the reasonable price, no gaming headset will ever approach headphones such as these in terms of sound quality: not for music, not for movies, ...

    I don't know about you, but I've been waiting for this moment for some time. The Wolf Among Us season one is now finished, and today we bring you a complete review of the whole season. We'll be reviewing it altogether, as if it's one game.

    The Wolf Among Us is an episodic point-and-click adventure game developed by Telltale Games, who recently made it into our list of top 10 greatest game developers of all time. They also developed The Walking Dead. So of course we had high expectations for The Wolf Among Us, which is dangerous since GND-Tech is the most critical game review site in the world.

    Lets face it, loosing data due to hard drive failure flat out sucks. We've all been there, and how we wished we took the time to back everything up before the disaster struck. But how? Well, that's where a good NAS (Network Attached Storage) system comes into play. The N2310 by Thecus is the perfect solution for home or small businesses users who want greater peace of mine when it comes to data integrity. A NAS storage solution is perfect because it provides a centralized backup location for all computers on the network.


    Currently NAS drives range in features so it's important to choose the configuration and features you want before purchasing. If you are looking for features, you'll find them on the N2310. Most of them I will be going in depth later on in the review, but some of the main features include RAID support, a web-based GUI interface, FTP and SSH connectivity, a built in BitTorrent client, and Android and IOS app support. Our first thoughts... impressive! Time to put the N2310 through the ringer and see how it does during our tests.




    As I mentioned on the previous page, the Thecus N2310 comes with a boat-load of features which will appeal to a rather large range of users. Whether you are looking for a backup solution, or a convenient way to access your files, you might be surprised at how well a NAS solution will work for you.

    At a glance, the N2310 features ...

    Steelseries is best known for their gaming oriented headsets, especially the great value "Siberia V2" which achieved a gold award when we reviewed them back in late 2012 but they are less well known for their more commercial, non gamer aimed headsets such as the H series and FLUX.


    Their best in ear headphones are the "Flux In-Ear Pros" which is what we are reviewing today. Available for 110.35 from their official store or $99.95 from Amazon.com it features a flat, 1.2m cable with two connectors, one for your PC (red and green two band) and one for mobile (or Mac) ...

    As the technology SSD controllers continue to advance, so does OCZ's lineup of solid state drives. The Vector series of SSD drives, which are geared towards enthusiasts, is no exception. A solid state drives controller is essentially its brain; the performance factor of the controller, in turn, greatly effects the overall performance of the SSD. The controller found on the Vector 150 is OCZ's brand new Barefoot 3 controller is very close to that found in the Vertex 450, which we recently reviewed. With that being said, if the performance of the Vector 150 is anything like we saw with the Vertex 450, I'd say this drive will post some pretty awesome benchmarks!


    As with 99% of all other solid state drives out there, the Vector 150 fits the standard 2.5 inch form factor and a slim 7mm tall. The first thing we were glad to see was that the styling of the Vector 150 was similar to that of the original Vector drive.

    MSRP for the Vector 150 120GB model stands at around $135 which is definitely on the high side of the current 120GB SSD market.





    As we touched on previously, the OCZ Vector 150 is equipped with OCZ's own in-house controller, the Indilinx Barefoot 3 (M00). The controller is no doubt the biggest factor when comparing the Vector 150 to any other ...

    Just when you think solid state drives are about as fast as they are going to get, OCZ's Vertex 450 was released and proved us all wrong. As of lately SSD read and write speeds have pretty much capped due to hardware limitations of the SATA6 controller. Anywhere from 500-550MB/sec read/write speeds are about as fast as you are going to get. Manufacturers today are focusing heavily on the SSD's IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second). IOPS are used as a general benchmark for read and write performance so it's important to factor a SSD's IOPS in addition to it's read and write speeds when determining how "fast" an SSD really is.


    The Vertex 450 is pushing some pretty strong ratings according to OCZ. Random read speeds peak at 85,000 IOPS, and random write at 90,000 IOPS. These numbers are very close to the Vertex 4 so it will be interesting to see how this newer generation compares to its predecessor.

    As far as capacity goes, the Vertex 450 comes in three sizes: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. Each come with OCZ's home brew NAND controller which based upon past reviews, has shown outstanding performance when compared to SandForce. The Vertex 450 uses the OCZ Indilinx Barefoot 3 M10 controller.

    Take a look at the next page for even more detailed specs!

    Doorways is an episodic horror and mystery game, released exclusively on PC in late 2013. Only the first two chapters have been released so far, and that's what we'll be looking at today.

    This game looks to provide a complex story and very unique, creepy atmosphere. You play as Thomas Foster, sent to hunt down four dangerous psychopaths for the betterment of mankind. But as you will find out, this is not a straightforward journey or manhunt. Nothing is what it appears to be, as you will delve into the minds of these psychopaths to understand their motivations.



    This PC exclusive title uses Steamworks, and supports mouse/keyboard and controller ...
