After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

  • Computex 2007 Day 2



    Our first official stop of the day was with Adata. Adata is one of the largest memory makers in Asia and does quite a bit more than just produce DRAM. The new and hot item they had on display were these USB picture frames that will generate a slideshow based on what photos you have on your flash drive. Simply plug you thumb drive in and away you go.
    Adata also had several new USB drives on display, with some being extremely small and others being extremely fast. The exciting one was this express card with USB support. For systems that support the express interface you can use this card as an additional drive or as a regular USB drive on systems without.
    Of course our primary interest is in DRAM modules and Adata had some very exciting items on display. At CES this year we saw the new heatspreader design that featured anodized aluminum and machined finish. Well they are using the same technique on the new design but changed it to something much nicer. (almost like the swoosh used on the new Ninjalane) These new heatspreaders can be found on all of their modules including the new DDR3.
    The highlight for us was the new watercooled heat spreaders.  Given that watercooling has become an accepted form of "sudo" mainstream cooling you'll find more and more companies will be experimenting with it.
