OCZ Onyx SSD lands at under a c-note

Posted in SSD by Shane McGlaun on March 11th, 2010

There have been two things keeping many from putting a SSD inside their computer. The first thing is price and the second is low storage capacity. OCZ has unveiled a new Onyx series SSD that fixes the price issue for most of us.

The new Onyx SSD is available now for under $100 for 32GB of storage. That isn’t much storage for most needs, but it will be a great little boot drive paired with an HDD for bulk storage. OCZ will offer larger capacity drives later.

OCZ Sabre OLED Gaming Keyboard

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on June 23rd, 2009

OCZ Sabre OLED Gaming KeyboardThe Sabre OLED gaming keyboard takes Art Lebedev’s OLED-in-each-key keyboard concept and adapts it for the mass market to enjoy. But it does have a lower price and a less impressive feature set. Only the numpad keys feature the OLED magic and the keys don’t display color.

OCZ tries to make up for the lack of OLED keys with a layered shortcut system and blue LED sidelighting. In the end we can only state the ovious, that the Sabre is no Optimus Maximus. Then again, the Optimus is huge and hard to type on. So maybe it’s for the best.


OCZ Neutrino 10-inch DIY Netbook Review

Posted in Review by Shane McGlaun on May 29th, 2009

oczneutrinoI am a big fan of netbooks and use a MSI Wind U100 when I am traveling and have never missed my larger and much more bulky Dell laptop. Being a big fan of computers and gadgets, my desk is full of old notebook and desktop hard drives and sticks of RAM. If you have the same sort of hardware lying around, today we are going to check out what could well be the perfect netbook for you. The OCZ Neutrino is billed as a DIY netbook and if you are the type who builds your own PCs, it’s not nearly as DIY as you are used too. The machine lacks storage, RAM and an OS. What it does have comes at a lower price. Is the OCZ Neutrino right for you? Read on to find out.

Posted in Notebooks by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2009

OCZ Alchemy Illuminati keyboard

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on February 19th, 2009

OCZ Alchemy Illuminati keyboardIlluminati. You’ve heard the conspiracy, now try the keyboard. They really missed out on a catchy tag-line with that one. OCZ Technology might be better known for making memory, but they’ve just announced a new addition to the company’s Alchemy line of peripherals with the Illuminati multimedia backlit keyboard series.

It’s the keyboard that’s hell-bent on world domination, population control, ushering in the new world order and they’re probably working with Aliens and abducting people too. Cause you know, the illuminati are like that. Actually in this case the name just implies that the keys themselves light up when they’re connected to your computer.

OCZ opens the Throttle on flash drives

Posted in OCZ by Shane McGlaun on December 15th, 2008

OCZ ThrottleI have a gob of flash drives laying around my office, crammed in desk drawers, filling up my penholder and generally getting in my way. I don’t really use flash drives, it seems that companies issue members of the press these things as a sort of initiation. The main reason I don’t use them is that they are rather slow and don’t offer enough storage for a real backup.

OCZ introduced a new flash drive this month called the Throttle that does away with one of the common threads in the flash drive world — the USB connector. Rather than the comparatively pokey USB port, OCZ grafts a full-blown eSATA connector onto the Throttle.
