iBall Slide i7011 Tablet

[image_library_tag 240/73240, border=”0″ align=”right” hspace=”4″ vspace=”4″ ,default]







With so many companies producing tablets, the biggest question is what makes iBall Slide different? To start with one major point in favor of iBall is its low price and they managed this without compromising on performance. The capacitive multi touch experience is quite good. Performance-wise, Slide runs full HD video quite seamlessly but inbuilt speakers would dampen overall multimedia experience. One glitch, that we came across while using Slide is lack of external volume control. Low price also means that you would not get some features like rear camera or a sim card slot. For connectivity, you can use either 3G data card via USB port or connect your Slide to Wi-Fi network. If aesthetics are too much a concern for you then you might be disappointed.
Price: Rs 13,995

[image_library_tag 242/73242, border=”0″ align=”right” hspace=”4″ vspace=”4″ ,default]

Both the handsets look very much similar to Nokia C2-02, and carry features to draw attention of the low budget mobile buyers. The devices are touch and type enabled and come in attractive colors with chrome finish with a slide-out keypad. Both the models come with 2.6 inches TFT resistive touchscreen and dual SIM with easy swap function for both SIMs. The phones feature a 2 MP camera, video recording at QCIF@15fps, 10 MB internal storage and microSD up to 32GB with 2GB included. On the connectivity front, both devices have the GPRS and EDGE. However, you have to keep in mind that both the models lack high speed 3G and Wi-Fi Internet connectivity. The C2-06 has a built-in 106 phone speaker with music play time of up to 35 hours, whereas C2-03 lacks a built-in speaker. In the price front, there isn’t much difference.
Price: Rs 4,099 for Nokia C2-03, and Rs 4,807 for Nokia C2-06.

If you are using Seagate GoFlex Satellite then you do not need any Wi-Fi router or LAN connectivity to access it over the network. Just plug it into a system and set it up and you are done. Power it on and check the wireless devices in your smartphone, tablet or laptop. Just select ‘GoFlex Satellite’ and enter the password (if you have assigned any). To access it over the Android or iOS, download and install the application from the respective market and you are ready to access your images, videos in your tablet or smartphone. We tried to access it over an Android phone. The application is simple and easy to use. We tried to stream videos and it worked perfectly fine. There are two LED over it –Wi-Fi and Power LED. On the right side, it has the power button and a USB3.0/2.0 connector at the bottom to charge or load the data in or from the disk. It has one Lithium-Ion non replaceable battery inside. Now that you can use GoFlex Satellite over Wi-Fi, you have to disconnect your connected device from the home network (Wi-Fi, not wired). That means you cannot access Internet over Wi-Fi, if you are accessing GoFlex Satellite. Disconnect it and then use the Internet.

Antec High Current Pro 1200 Watt PSU

[image_library_tag 244/73244, border=”0″ align=”right” hspace=”4″ vspace=”4″ ,default]

The PSU can handle up to four high-end VGAs along with other power hungry components almost effortlessly. The PSU is semi modular in nature as all the regular connector cables are connected by default to the main unit. There are other 6 pin and 8 pin connector cables provided which are modular and can be plugged onto the main unit if required. The unit uses an 80mm cooling fan on the front of the PSU but it proved more than just capable of keeping the PSU cool, even when the unit was running at 100 per cent load. Too bulky to fit inside a regular size cabinet; this one is specifically for gaming PCs.
