Multimedia Compact Keyboard in flat Notebook Design

MaxPoint, May 2009: Already during its first presentation at CeBIT 2009 the new KeySonic keyboard attracted attention of many visitors. An eye-catcher is the trendy-mirrored LED panel on the upper right corner to display the Caps, Num and Scroll Lock and a blue illuminated KeySonic logo.

The chic black KSK-6000 U has an extremely flat keypad, well-known from notebooks. Nevertheless, it offers the silent but noticeable keystroke of the high-quality X-Type membrane technology. The key area is kept very large, as it is the norm in industrial sector. This additionally makes typing easier. The new input device is with its especially low height of only 18 mm well suited for usage in cramped and in living areas.

Twelve multifunctional keys - among other things, for standby, volume regulation, starting the Windows Media Player as well as calling a calculator - ensure high efficiency and also allow the control of home entertainment systems. Tilt feet on the back for adjustment of the tilt angle ensure an ergonomic way of working. Despite the compact dimensions (WxDxH: 367x116 x18 mm) a standard number pad is integrated. The installation of the keyboard by "Plug & Play" without special drivers is very easy and time-saving. The connection of the input device to a Windows 2000 / XP / Vista compatible PC is made via a
2 m long cable with USB interface.

The KSK-6000 U is delivered in an attractive retail packaging in red KeySonic design. They are marketed exclusively by MaxPoint Handelsgesellschaft mbH and are available in specialised shops for the recommended retail price of 19.90 (incl. VAT) starting from June.

Successful mini keyboards now wireless with enhanced Smart-Touchpad

Ahrensburg, April 2009:

The product line of KeySonic mini keyboards with touchpad is completed now by further models. ACK-340 RF+ and ACK-540 RF+ are the names of versions in super-mini and mini format, which establish their connection to the PC with a reliable 2.4 GHz radio transmission. A new, bi-directional radio frequency technology provides an optimal radio connection. Thereby a simplified connecting process via one-way-synchronisation only from the keyboard is possible. To synchronise the keyboard with the RF-receiver only the button on the bottom of the keyboard needs to be pushed.

Both models have been equipped as the first KeySonic keyboards with an optimised Smart-Touchpad. With two fingers the screen can be scrolled up and down similar to a mouse wheel, while a pop-up menu as known from the right mouse button appears after touching with three fingers. In future also the Bluetooth- and USB-versions of the 340 and 540 series will be fit with this touchpad. The keyboards find their optimal application in home entertainment as well as in training, conference and presentation rooms etc.

Externally, the keyboards convince with a modern design in noble, matt black SoftSkin coating. The full functionality of keyboards with full-size layout is achieved by an integrated numeric keypad and 12 function keys. The key stroke is silent, but noticeable thanks to the proven, high-quality membrane technology. Skid-proof tilt feet for adjustment of the tilt angle and a palm rest guarantee an ergonomic operation. Status messages such as Reconnect, Transmitting and Low Battery are signalised with blue LEDs in an attractive Light-Stripe-Design. The On/Off-switch increases the operation time of the batteries. The installation of the keyboard is incredibly simple: The USB receiver is to put into the PC and is recognised automatically, no special driver is necessary.

Both input devices are delivered in an attractive retail packaging in typically red KeySonic design. They are marketed exclusively by MaxPoint Handelsgesellschaft mbH. The ACK-340 RF+ is offered in specialised shops for a recommended retail price of 49.00 ; the ACK-540 RF+ for 59.00 (incl. VAT). Various country layouts are available on request.

Mini-ITX-cases in wrinkle design

Ahrensburg, February 2009: While the product innovations of the previous year were mainly addressed to the clientele of gamers, Aplus presents starting from now a series of Mini-ITX cases, which will rather find their place in modern living rooms. The PC cases of Cupid series have got an easy-care, extremely scratch-proof black surface with a wrinkle texture. An adequate cooling is achieved by perforated side panels. The high-quality fronts in aluminium and acrylic fit optically perfectly to modern home entertainment systems and are accentuated by an on/off switch with crystal-blue LED indicator.

The models Cupid1 (185 x 255 x 70 mm) and Cupid2 (300 x 290 x 65 mm) are equipped with an external 60 W power supply adapter and a DC to DC power board inside.

All three models support mainstream Mini-ITX motherboards.

Behind the front doors of the mini cases two USB ports for 2.0, an audio and a microphone jack and a 56-in-1 card reader are hidden. Cupid1&2 provide external Slim 5,25 drive bays, while a full 5,25 drive can be installed in the Cupid3. Inside is space for 2,5 hard disks in Cupid1 and 3,5 in Cupid2&3, so there are enough possibilities for the installation of hard drives and expansions.

The black-blue devil returns strengthened back!

MaxPoint, October 2008: The long wait is coming to an end - under its own brand of A+ the company MaxPoint presents the devilish beautiful follow-up model of the very successful "EL Diablo" PC case, which is much sought-after in gamer circles. The new "EL Diablo Advance" outwardly confidents, like its predecessor, by Titanium inlays in a black chassis, accentuated by separately controllable and backlit with blue LED fans. Therewith a great atmosphere can be staged in darkened rooms. The top cover of the super tower is completely redesigned: borne by blue lateral LED strips it includes two additional fans, gleaming also in cool blue. In the front bevelled edge a temperature indication with blue acrylic display is integrated; directly behind it are additional ports and controls.

Following the new hardware trend the ventilation system and the hard drive bays have been further optimised to achieve an even more efficient cooling. Besides the gigantic 330 mm fan in side panel, hiding behind a mesh window, and a 250 mm fan embedded in front, two 180 mm fans on top provide a still better air circulation. Especially the upper part of the case, where the heat usually collects, will be better ventilated. Thus, the upper 5.25" bays, the power supply and the CPU area are cooled more intensive. So that the cooling system of the EL Diablo Advance has gone a step closer to the ideal of a water cooling, without need to accept their many disadvantages (expensive components, difficult installation, maintenance and care, fiddling with the chemistry and potential water damage). Through the built-in fan control all fan areas can be adjusted separately and customised to the individual needs and temperatures.

Additionally two USB 2.0 ports, two audio ports and one eSATA port are integrated in top cover for faster and easier access to the different interfaces. The case also has special, screwless installable hard disk trays, which protect the disks effectively and minimise noise and vibrations. The case offers space for up to 12 hard drives and 7 PCI cards, which are very easy to install, and can accommodate Standard ATX, Micro ATX and MP dual record motherboards.

The EL Diablo Advance PC case will be available from end of October in specialised shops for a recommended retail price of 145, - Euro.

Tagan SuperRock: Superior in quality, efficiency and reliability

MaxPoint, 26th of September 2008: Just in time for the Leipzig Games Convention 2008 Tagan presented the new SuperRock power supply series (U33II) a brand new & completely revised product. The successor of the many award-winning 2-Force II series was designed considering the latest technical expertises and analysis of customer needs and is manufactured in a new, highly modern production facility. Therefore Tagan has now also a standard power supply series in full range from 400 W to 1200 W in its assortment, in addition to the successful modular PipeRock series and the redundant models.

All Tagan power supplies have a universal input range from 115 to 230VAC and can be used globally with different voltages without switching. The named performance of the power supplies is their permanent output, it can be delivered continuously. Moreover, large parts of the power are concentrated in the major +12V rail so that the graphics cards and other components can be powered optimally and operate stably. This is also supported by a 3% regulation on the +12 V rail (normally 5%), so that the voltages are even more stable across the complete output range. Now the electronics works with synchronous rectifiers (ZVS), which reduce the heat and further increase the efficiency.

During the recent years Tagan has more and more focused on optimisation of quality. Concerning this matter enormously improved components of the power supplies ensure stability and reliability, resulting in a longer life expectancy. For example, the power supplies have built-in Japanese brand capacitors, which are reliable also at higher temperatures up to 105X C. Therewith a greater customer satisfaction is aspired and also a contribution is made to our environment.

The fan and heat sink as well as the fan control were modified, so that the new Tagan power supplies work now even more silent and efficiently. The electronics and the new PCB design provide an excellent efficiency. Thereby less heat is emitted, so the fan can run slower and more silent. This allows turning more energy into output power, which saves costs and benfits the environment.

The new Tagan SuperRock power supplies have got novel, very silent 120 mm fans, which has additional supported hydro-dynamically starting from 680 W (similar like HDDs). Many long heatsinks vent the heat from the components more effectively. All power supplies of that series have the important cables with 8-pin and 6+2-pin plugs to connect all kinds of graphics cards available on the market.

Tagan power supplies have a warranty of 3 years and a free service: In Germany, the free of charge Tagan hotline offers help for problems under the direct dial 0800-8242648.

There will be the following SuperRock models available in specialised shops: 400 W, 500 W, 600 W, 680 W, 780 W, 880 W, 1000 W and 1200 W. The recommended retail prices are between 69 for the 400 W model and 249 for the 1200 W power package.



Gorilla-Marketing with SilverPower at Games Convention

MaxPoint, August 2008: Maxpoint, known as manufacturer of Tagan power supplies, Aplus cases and KeySonic keyboards, is presenting a new power supply series before Games Convention in Leipzig.
Very silent power supplies with a very good price performance-ratio are offered under the brand SilverPower. The 400 Watt (SP-SS400) and 500 Watt (SP-SS500) version of the SilverPower power supplies will be available in September. Very silent operation with extremely quiet 120 mm fan, more than 80% efficiency, long life cycle using high-end components and real wattage (constant load) are some of the features of this new SilverPower series. A 6-pin graphic card connector plus a 6/8-pin connector will fully support the up-to-date graphic cards on the market and will also make ambitious gamers with high requirements very happy. High efficiency decreases heat dissipation, so the fan can run slower and more quietly, which is also supported by an ingenious fan control. Additionally it reduces the consumption of electricity, so you have less cost and protect the environment. A small sample calculation will show the difference: If a computer uses only 300 Watt (without power supply) and has an efficiency of 80%, the computer uses total 375 Watt (300 Watt / 0.8) and with 70 % efficiency already 429 Watt. So in this example you can save about 54 Watt, or you can save the energy of 5 x 11 Watt energy saving bulbs.
SilverPower is already selling very well for many years to professional system integrators, but without any marketing. Now MaxPoint is going to the consumer market as well and will also invest in marketing activities.
