     400W at €30 from Fortron!

    Fortron has launched a new range of power supply, the HEXAs. These entry-level power supplies offer an interesting spec given their price, as the 400 watt version is on sale at €29.99 and the 500 watt at €39.99.

    At this price, the Fortron HEXAs offer a yield announced as higher than 80% and meet the 80 PLUS standard, though they aren’t certified as they only run at 230V. It may well be that the 80% yield, which is easier to obtain at 230V, isn’t achieved at 115V. 70% of the total power is announced as available for +12V.


    The Fortron HEXAs are cooled by a 120mm PWM fan. The 400W version has an ATX 20+4 connector, a 4-pin CPU connector, a 6-pin PCI-E, 3 SATAs, 3 molexes and a floppy. On the 500W version, the CPU connector is 4+4 pins, there are two 6+2 pin PCI-Es, 4 SATAs and 4 molexes in addition to the ATX 20+4 and a floppy.



     Samsung’s HDD division going to Seagate!

    Seagate and Samsung have just announced that Seagate will be taking over Samsung’s hard drive division. To do this, Seagate will pay Samsung USD 1.375bn, half of which will be in shares. Samsung will then own around 9.6% of Seagate.

    Indeed this agreement goes much further than the simple sale of Samsung’s HDD division because in addition the two companies have extended their cross-license agreement. At the same time, supply agreements have been signed defining the supply of Samsung flash memory to Seagate and the supply of Seagate hard drives to Samsung.

    This sale comes following the announcement of the sale of Hitachi Storage to Western Digital in March. If you look at the iSuppli figures for the fourth quarter, Western and Hitachi make up 32% and 18% of the market share respectively, making for 50% in total. Seagate’s total market share was 29%, to which they are now adding Samsung’s 10%.

    It remains to be seen who will make the best offer for the remaining 11%, which is held by Toshiba, who, to recap, bought the Fujitsu HDD division in 2009.



     Acer HN274H Monitor Review: a 27'', 120 Hz Screen

    Watch out: our latest monitor is big, bright and quick off the mark. Although its little brother, the Acer GN245HQ, didn't quite get five stars, it certainly made a big impression and left us looking forward to testing the new Acer HN274H.

    Acer is continuing to expand its range of 3D monitors. The Taiwanese manufacturer has just launched the HN274H, a 27'' screen with a 120 Hz display. Like the smaller GN245HQ which we looked at a few weeks ago, it has a built-in transmitter to sync the 3D glasses with the picture on screen.

    > Test: Acer HN274H
