It’s something you bump into all the time: You’ll be testing out a nice case only to find that the front I/O panel has just USB 2.0 ports, with no USB 3.0 to be found. It seems like a smallish detail until you plug in a USB 3.0 device and find you’re limited to USB 2.0 performance. BitFenix gets it and is upgrading more of its cases to USB 3.0 (while leaving a couple of USB 2.0 ports for good measure). The BitFenix Shinobi, Shinobi Window, and Colossus Window cases will now all ship with two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports. Yes, it’s a slight upgrade, but it’s a welcome... Read more...
OCZ's Colossus has been looming in our "must-have" list for months. We actually saw one in the flesh this past summer, and we heard in August that it would "soon" be shipping in sizes ranging from 128GB to 1TB.

We've already taken a sneak peek at OCZ Technology's Colossus--which is quite possibly the most exciting thing to happen to desktop storage since the advent of the VelociRaptor--and now we know exactly when it's coming. Or, maybe not quite exactly, but close enough! Thanks to a tidbit from OCZ itself, we're told that the outfit is preparing to ship its beastly Colossus SSD lineup in around three weeks, meaning that you should be able to upgrade your rig in fine fashion prior to Labor Day. The drive, which will boast a 3.5" form factor and will likely be one of the fastest (if not the fastest) desktop... Read more...
The name "Colossus", it conjures up something, well, huge.  Though huge could mean many things.  Are we talking something physically huge, huge as in something of monumental proportions that might otherwise change the market landscape or huge as in benchmark shattering kind of huge?  As you might agree, huge is relative but it's safe to say the folks at OCZ hope their Colossus drive is going to be a huge hit in the market.  We've been lucky enough to score some early shots of Colossus in the flesh and surprisingly, it's not quite what we expected.  In fact, we were pleasantly...
