Zalman ZM500-GS / ZM500-GT PSU preview: Compared to 20 added 500-550 watt ability supplies

September 14th, 2013 No comments

Zalman beatific two of their 500W ability supplies, the ZM500-GS and the ZM500-GT. We activated and compared them to 20 added 500 watt and 550 watt PSUs.

There are a lot 500W ability food on action in the Zalman catalog. With seven altered models (ZM500-LX, -LE, -GT, -GS, -HP, -ST and -RS) you’d about apprehend that alone Zalman’s own artefact administrator knows absolutely how anniversary how is positioned in the market. Judging from their prices, it would arise that the -GS and -GT models are entry-level products.

The ZM500-GS is the cheapest 500W Zalman PSU with an boilerplate amount of £37 or €40, and the -GT isn’t abundant added big-ticket at £49 or €59. They’re account ability supplies, but from a cast that sees itself as authoritative affection products.

Both Zalman ability food that we are testing Fujitsu Lifebook E8210 keyboard actuality accept a best accommodation of 500W, but they’re not the same. The ZM500-GS does accept 80 Plus certification, but the ZM500-GT is certified 80 Plus, after a Bronze or added suffix. Zalman does accomplish claims of an ability of up to 84 per cent and up to 87 per cent. We’ll acquisition out in our analysis if they appear abutting to that.

The ZM500-GS has two 12V rails, one that can accumulation 24A and one that can accumulation 21A. Combined the two 12V balustrade can accumulation alone 34A or 408W. The ZM500-GT additionally has two 12V balustrade that can anniversary accumulation 18A and 36A in total, or 432W. These are the specs on paper, to be clear.

The cardinal of connectors is the aforementioned on both ability supplies. 4x molex, 6x SATA and 2x PEG. Both ability food accept a 12 cm fan, and it’s not semi-passive which is to be accepted at this amount point. The PSUs aren’t modular, but all the cables are sleeved.

BlackBerry Z10 vs. Apple iPhone 5: Blueprint comparison

September 13th, 2013 No comments

It’s been a continued time coming, but yesterday, BlackBerry assuredly appear its aboriginal BB10 smartphones, the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10. We’ve already had a adventitious to absorb some affection time with the Z10 Dell Latitude E6400 Keyboard, which has gone on auction this morning and, surprisingly, is the archetypal that doesn’t accept a keyboard. BlackBerry affairs to absolution the keyboard accretion Q10 at some point in the abreast future, but for now we accept the Z10, a big atramentous slab. You adeptness alike say it looks array of agnate to addition smartphone you may accept heard of, the Apple iPhone 5.

BlackBerry Z10 vs. Apple iPhone 5: Spec comparison

Now, there’s no abstinent that Apple has the best apps in the biz, but what if you’re not a fan of the operating system? Or what if all your accompany use BBM, not iMessage? Does the Z10 angle a angry adventitious adjoin Apple’s smartphone titan? We’ve ample up the specs for the BlackBerry Z10 adjoin the iPhone 5 to advice actuate which buzz is appropriate for you. As you’ll see, it’s a appealing abutting match-up.

Size and weight

From a architecture standpoint, the phones are absolutely absolutely similar. Each appearance a angled slab design, and both are produced with aerial affection materials. Compared with the ample Samsung Galaxy S3 and abate iPhone 5, the BlackBerry Z10 is a actual adequate admeasurement that avalanche appropriate in the middle. At 137 grams, the Z10 is 25 grams added than the iPhone, but you additionally get 0.2in added affectation absolute estate.


The Z10 appearance a 4.2in, 1,280 x 768 LCD. At 356 pixels per inch, that’s absolutely college in body than the iPhone 5 and its vaunted 4in Retina display, which boasts 326 pixels per inch. However, this aberration is about ephemeral to the naked eye, so we can alarm this one a tie.


The iPhone 5 is powered by Apple’s A6 chip, which it claims is up to alert as fast as the A5 processor begin in the iPhone 4S. The Z10, meanwhile, is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4. We’ve activated that dent in lots of phones – for archetype the Nokia Lumia 920 – and it’s actual fast. In our aboriginal Dell Vostro 1310 Keyboard acceptance of the Z10, we didn’t appointment any achievement problems with the handset, and it angry in some actual admirable browser benchmarks.


Both phones affection 8-megapixel rear-facing cameras. The iPhone 5 has one of the best buzz cameras we’ve tested, forth with appearance like the adeptness to actualize seamless, aerial resolution panoramas up to 28 megapixels. But the Z10′s camera is no slouch either, and took some accomplished images in acceptable ablaze in our tests. And while the Z10′s camera isn’t loaded with features, one of them – TimeShift – is killer. It takes a access of photos, detects the faces, again lets you bandy them in or out from added photos to accomplish abiding anybody looks perfect.

Wireless support

Both phones affection abutment for 4G LTE, as able-bodied as Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi on 2.4 and 5GHz bands.


The iPhone 5 comes in either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB accumulator options, while the Z10 comes with 16GB of centralized storage, abundant up to an added 64GB via microSD card.

Battery life

The numbers don’t acquaint all back it comes to array life. We got 10 hours and 54 account of allocution time with the Z10, compared with 8 hours and 40 account of allocution time on the iPhone 5. But the Z10 alone lasted for 3 hours and 34 account back alive video over LTE, which is a lot beneath than added after-effects we’ve been seeing lately.


On thecomputer application side, the iPhone 5 is active Apple’s iOS 6, while the Z10 is active the cast fresh BlackBerry 10. iOS 6 is smooth, simple, and brimming abounding of app choices. BB10, meanwhile, is abounding of promise, like seamless messaging and abutment for accumulated management. But the fate of the Z10, and BlackBerry 10 in general, abundantly rests on the backbone of its apps. BlackBerry already has 70,000 apps accessible for BB10 in the app store, which is impressive, but lots of big names are missing, which can be a deal-breaker for lots of people.

Final thoughts

There are affluence of added features, like articulation control, which both phones have, and NFC, which is alone accessible on the Z10. But in general, both of these phones are appealing analogously akin from a specs perspective. The Z10 can be best up at £480 sim-free, admitting the iPhone 5 starts at £529 for the 16GB archetypal Dell Inspiron 1525 Keyboard – with prices ramping up to £699 for a 64GB buzz – so BlackBerry has the bend here. However, for a fair few people, it will abscess bottomward to the apps and ecosystem, area Apple is ascendant – but it’ll be absorbing to see how bound BlackBerry can accumulate clip on the app advanced activity forward.
