DAS Promise Pegasus R4 Review

Data storage units have become an integral part of PC hardware in recent years. Such conjuncture is simply explained by the rising necessity to store huge amounts of information and transfer the data to various devices. NAS and DAS units have been developed with the intention to solve all storage problems, however, the efficiency of their work is much dependent on the interfaces they use for data transfer. USB 2.0 interfaces are unable to cope with voluminous info; the prevalent now USB 3.0 and eSATA interfaces are efficient only for a single winchester. But when it comes to the management of really huge data blocks, there appears a need for a more advanced solution. Promise Technology dares to solve all vital issues by releasing DAS Pegasus R4 with Thunderbolt interface which is notable for the high and stable data transfer speed with the retention of compatibility.

Meeting New Cooling System Brocken 2 from Alpenfoehn

Only a couple of weeks are left till the official release of a new cooling system Brocken 2 designed by Alpenfoehn.

Active cooling power is ensured by a nine-blade fan of 140 mm standard size, known as WingBoost 2. The fan supports PWM technology that allows altering its rotational speed within the boundaries of 400-1100 RPM. Its activity stimulates the airflow index of 109 CFM, while the noise level barely achieves 19.6 dB (A). WingBoost 2 features small distance between …
