On a scale of 1 to 5 extremely bad bad normal good extremely good How would you rate... the interface? the performance? the functionality? the workflow? the objectives achieved? the user experience? the installation procedure? the robustness? the Tom-Dick-Harry appeal? the Tom-Dick-Harry usage test? the installation size? the developers ability to ...

You might know Lifehacker. While not quite the "bigger places out there dedicated to that sort of thing" that you're looking for, it does have reviews and feature lists written by the few named folk who run the site, so credibility is high. Also, the comments by users will show up problems or (rare) virus reports. They (the writers and commenters) also offer ...

right here; they compare what claims to be 53 different versions of this card Companies like nVidia and ATi have 'board partners' which build and sell cards based on their designs. In fact, all of nVidia's cards are sold in this way, nVidia does not actually sell cards themselves. ATi sells cards directly, but the vast majority of their business is ...

I was once optimistic about them for the reasons you listed, but found them to be absolutely horrible in use. The keys quite literally wobble back and forth on their downward stroke, so unless you enjoy battling little mounds of jelly, avoid. You should go to a hardware outlet and give it a shot. I really can't recommend the things for anybody. I think ...

I did found this case study that is mentioning Heidi: A free tool (donations accepted) that is very robust and allows you to wipe free space (more accurately called “unallocated clusters”) as well as slack space (also called “cluster tips”) is Eraser. In addition, it includes the ability to configure your system to wipe the page file at shutdown. ...

http://www.trustedreviews.com/ is one that I have taken to visiting when checking out potential purchases. Though it is recommended that you try to source reviews from multiple places rather than trusting just one reviewer. As Pelms points out, in the medium-to-long run consumable costs far outweigh the initial outlay on a printer. TrustdeReviews always ...

I'm assuming your annotating live websites (such as www.google.com). I used a tool when teaching, called Diigo. It allows you to stick annotations on to web pages, and if you have friends added to this service then they'll be able to view remarks you've made. There is also a cool toolbar for Firefox that expands on this services usability.

For freeware, Freeware Genius is great.

Lately SuperUser is itself turning out to be a good site to read user opinions about software.

I quite strongly favour AnandTech’s reviews, and the link you posted is the best CULV-notebook round-up I’ve seen. If you are looking for slightly more up to date information, then Engadget’s CULV tag, TechRadar, TrustedReviews, and Geek.com all provide news and reviews. HandsOn Reviews aggregates reviews from Notebookcheck (and other sites), which I have ...

I commented out the following line in /etc/websvn/config.php and the issue has resolved itself. //$config->useGeshi();

I just found a new site (Buissy.com), that does not have reviews but are aiming to be the best Software Directory for Business Solutions. They seem to be competent with experience on what is missing on the internet from both a purchaser as well as a vendors point of view. They are obviously coming with functionality the next few months that will help a lot ...

AlternativeTo - it sounds just like the name - it list alternatives to software (and that means the alternative of an app is that app's alternative). Maybe it's not exactly a review site, but I thought I'd mention it. Quote from main page: AlternativeTo is a new approach to finding good software. Tell us what application you want to replace and we ...

I use cnet.com for things in general, and phonearena.com for... phones.

I always get an empty feeling from those types of reviews. When reading through the results of a survey to evaluate an application, you never get to the essence of "...but is this a good application?" It's like when you have an incredibly average so-so meal at a restaurant and you find one of those surveys on the table: Was your meal hot? Yes Did you ...

I think we've gotten to the bottom of this issue ourselves. The issue seems to be being caused by a combination of two things. There is a component of Adobe called the AdobeCollabSync which is a process that sits in the background and, by default, automatically synchronises comments with the server at regular intervals, even if you don’t have the pdf open. ...

If you use Safari, Coda Notes is an extension that allows you to directly annotate and send screenshots as email from your browser.

With over 900,000 downloads, CNET has a pretty good rating on it, located here: http://download.cnet.com/Eraser/3000-2092_4-10231814.html I've personally used it in conjunction with products like Recuva, and without a hitch it does do it's job at least on the low level stuff.

From what i have worked with, the drives actually do all the work and the board just pairs them togehter, and due to the fact that SSD drives have the same hook ups as a regular SATA drive i dont think you will need to look for a "SSD Raid Card" specificaly, just a good quality Sata raid card should do the trick.

I've recently assembled a new PC, and as I need well performing HD's, I decided to go with an SATA-II hardware raid controller in conjunction with OCZ SSD's. The adapter has 128 MB cache on board and in a raid 0 compound, you'll get 800 MB/s read speed as well as 450 MB/s write speed. Adapter wasn't that expensive, found it for around 100€. Together with the ...

ASUS CROSSHAIR IV does the trick along w/ Windows 7. You might want to check the specs of your board's SATARAID -controller before buying external RAID controllers : http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20101224110852910&board_id=1&model=Crosshair+IV+Formula&page=1&SLanguage=en-us
