2011 Honda Pilot EX SUV

I had been drive my 2006 Toyota Corolla LE for a while now and I was fairly happy with the service it was providing until my family grew from two to four. Yup, having two kids will always result in the need for more space not just in the car but in your homes too. So when planning on having kids, also consider the cost of a bigger car and maybe a bigger living space. This is where my new 2011 Honda Pilot EX SUV comes into play to replace my still young 2006 Toyota Corolla that I loved dearly.

Archgon Mobile Optical Disk Drive MD-9102 DVD Re-Writer

Nowadays, everybody seems to either have notebooks or netbooks because they are small and portable. They are great but sometimes they don’t come with any optical drives built-in or the optical drive is built-in to a docking station/port replicator that you have to purchase separately. But since you are going to have to buy an external optical drive sooner or later, you may want to consider the Archgon Mobile Optical Disk Drive (MD-9102).

Evercool Transformer 4 CPU Cooler

We test as many CPU coolers as we can because you just can’t ever have enough cooling in any system. So today we are testing the Evercool Transformer 4 CPU cooler on our brand new rig to see how it cools that. This CPU cooler has four heat-pipes with large aluminum fins to cool effectively. We will not be able to compare the results of the results from this test with our previous CPU cooler tests because of our new test system.

SunbeamTech Airbox USB 3.0 Enclosure

Hard drive enclosures are now beginning to adopt the USB 3.0 interface which is supposed to blow USB 2.0 and any other interface out of the water. Today we are testing the Sunbeam Tech Airbox USB 3.0 Enclosure to see how much faster it really is. The Airbox can handle 3.5″ or 2.5″ (won’t be secure) drives. We will test it with our Samsung HD501IJ 500GB SATA 3.0GBps hard drive. Unlike other compact enclosure this one has a cooling fan with LED, so it cools while looking cool at the same time. It can support drives up to 2TB (terabytes) so you have a lot of room to expand. Let’s see how fast it really is.
