Edifier @ CES 2013

One of our last stops at CES was at the Edifier booth.  This Chinese company makes some interesting products that offer really unique designs but still manage to pull off some pretty decent performance and quality.  Traditional speaker purists will tell you that the speaker cabinet must be made from wood and have a lot of specifications to enable good sound, but Edifier continues to break the mold and offer products with very unique designs that still sound rather nice.

One of the products of CES 2012 that we picked as our "Best of Show" was the Edifier Spinnaker speakers, and even though these are more than a year old, these speakers still catch your eye and your ear in terms of looks and performance.  The original red ones looked like the horns from some beast and they've expanded their lineup to include a lot more different colors.  These speakers are still some of my favorite products at the show again, and with the large color selection you can even snag a set that is a bit more muted if you don't want to scare away small children.



The other speakers that looked really interesting and sounded very good as well was the Eclipse.  These speakers have a very unique dual radiator design at the rear that helps project the sound to fill the room.  These really aren't that large, but even in a horrible venue like the LVCC, we noted that the sound was very good.  These speakers are quite directional as well and this will work great for PC speakers - and that's what Edifier has in mind.

Samsung's Curved 105-in UHD TV & Galaxy Pro at CES 2014

We have a look at the massive and amazing 105-inch Samsung UHD TV at CES 2014 as well as the new "Pro" line of Samsung Galaxy Tablets and Note products. These are a huge step in the right direction and are setting the bar for the coming year.


Check out more pictures in the gallery here - as well as more of our CES 2014 coverage here.

ASUStor at CES 2015

We stopped by ASUStor once again this year to see what they've been working on over the past year as well as to see what is coming in 2015. They haven't been around all that long in the grand scheme of things, but they have a lot of expertise in their company as many of their employees are not new to the NAS product line.

At CES they didn't launch any new hardware specifically, but they show us a lot of features of their upcoming ADM software revision. When it comes right down to it, software is really what drives these Network Attached Servers - they are not just for raw storage anymore. Before we jump into the software however, they did show us their two main lines that they are excited about this time around.


They have a great lineup of AS5x0 units that are divided up into two performance lineups based on their processor. The Home/Power user bays in this series are AS5002T, AS5004T, AS5008T and AS5010T that are 2-bay, 4-bay, 8-bay and 10-bay units. These all have dual core Intel Celeron processors with 1GB of DDR3. The Power users/SOHO/SMB products in the 5x0 line are the AS5102T and AS5104T that are 2-bay and 4-bay units. These come with 2GB of DDR3 and have a 2.0GHz Celeron Quad-Core processor.


Lexus Hoverboard is Here

While the world is all getting excited about the Lexus hoverboard (and it IS cool), the technology has been around for quite a while. It's simply Maglev that uses liquid nitrogen cooled semi-conductors that are combined with a magnetic surface and the result is a device that repels gravity. It is pretty cool.
