    Review Review - 6 hours ago

    Although PCs have steadily grown more energy efficient over the last few years, there's still room for improvement.

    Home server - November 2014 The home server. It's subject to heated debate on Hardware.Info. Opinions differ widely on subjects like the necessity for keeping the design compact, the advantage of hot-swap bays, acceptable energy consumption, how much CPU power is needed, what type of storage and so on. It's safe to say that the "ideal home server" does not exist, because its intended use differs widely among our readers. This doesn't mean that we can't provide a good guide to effective home servers. There are two option... Read more

    HD Video Editing PC - November 2014 A few years ago, your PC just couldn't be fast enough for digital video processing. By now every average PC is able to process Standard Definition (PAL 720x576) as well as HD Ready, but technology doesn't stand still. By now just about every smartphone can record in HD or Full HD and the new frontier is Ultra HD, also known as 4K. This resolution and the 'accompanying' codec HEVC / H.265 require seriously powerful hardware. That's the reason why a powerful PC can still really make a differenc... Read more

    The 802.11ac-router express has only really begun gathering steam over the course of this year. Almost all of the larger manufacturers have at least one model on offer, and many already have a complete line-up. Up until now, we've seen two distinct "waves" of 802.11ac routers. The ASUS RT-AC87U and Netgear R7500 that we cover in this review are the first models belonging to the third generation. We've tested them extensively.

  • Ubiquiti Unifi access points review

    Ubiquiti Unifi access points review

    Just about every router and modem/router combo contains a wireless access point these days. This component is often of questionable quality, especially for modem/router combos that are handed out by providers. Access points can also offer a solution if you wish to extend your Wi-Fi network to a room in your house that is not covered by your "main router". Ubiquiti's Unifi series offers interesting, centrally manageable access points. Although primarily intended for the enterprise market, we hear that they are frequently considered for home use as well. We took a closer look at the UAP, the UAP-Pro, and the UAP-AC.
