Imation Pro WX 1.5TB Wireless USB Review @ ASE Labs

Remember when Bluetooth came out? No one bothered to care for a long time until an explosion happened a few years ago. We believe that Wireless USB is in the same boat. The technology solves a problem that people need; the ability to connect peripherals to their computer without a wire. It is just that we are suffering on the implementation and faced without market saturation, the Wireless USB field seems to be stagnating. There are glimmers of hope and Imation brings the first Wireless USB enclosure to the table

UMLan Article Release: Thermaltake Element V - Review

Remember when we used to make and go to lan parties and how everyone wanted to have the best looking case out there? Yeah, I certainly do. We used to pimp out our cases to look like christmas trees no matter how much money the parts were. We wanted it all. The great cooling, the style, the coloring, the fans and of course the accessibility. Some of us couldn't afford any of it and some of us were lucky enough to have this all.

Thermaltake Silent 1156 Heatsink - BCCHardware

The performance was definitely good and when you compare it to a stock heatsink that allows the CPU to reach the boiling point of water it seems even better.  I found it unbelievable that our Core i7 860 hit 99°C with the stock cooler and I'm glad to see the Silent 1156 shave off 27°C (50°F) from the stock temps. . .

A Futurelooks News Flash - Samsung N220 10-Inch INTEL ATOM N450 "PineTrail" Netbook Review

Despite what the folks in Cupertino may lead you to believe, the netbook  form factor will continue to survive in the face of these new-fangled Internet tablets. The technology continues to advance in this realm, introducing us to higher-end finishes and improved horsepower. Just as the Intel  Atom N280 provided some good performance upgrades over the N270, the “Pine Trail” Atom N450 is supposed to be pretty hot stuff too.

OCZ Vertex Turbo 120GB SSD @ Techgage.com

Making the decision to upgrade to an SSD isn't difficult, but finding the "perfect" SSD is a different story thanks to the sheer amount of choice out there; sometimes even from the same vendor! Fortunately, OCZ's Vertex Turbo delivers a great blend of performance and GB per dollar, making it well worth consideration.

Nokia N97 Mobile Phone Review @ BayReviews.com

"The Nokia N97 mobile phone is a compact phone with a slide out full QWERTY keyboard and a huge 3.5" touch screen with tilt. I would mostly use this as a personal phone to get all my emails, surf the web, take pictures and videos and of course store them in the huge 32 GB storage space. So I tested it for about two weeks and these are my results."

News - Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Review at Overclockers Online

Objectivity speaking, Thermaltake has designed a good performing chassis at a great price point. Obviously, this chassis isn't for everyone, but for its intended market it is a great value. When you factor in the cost of additional fans, the price point will raise from under fifty dollars to somewhere around sixty five dollars for a properly equipped chassis. Still, the build quality and overall design are a testament to the value of this chassis. I'd happily recommend this case to anyone looking for a good looking case at a modest price point.

Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5 Motherboard Review @ Madshrimps

Gigabyte announced their new 333 lineup end of November 2009. At the 333 Event Show, however there was no word on the AMD CPU supporting motherboards. Focus was mainly on P55 and X58 series. Getting a speedy introduction to the wonders and miracles of AMD overclocking via HWBOT Country Cup I was eager to review one of Gigabyte's latest high end offering, the 790FXTA-UD5. The A in the name reflects it is a souped up 333 version of the previous model 790FXT-UD5.

iXBT Labs Review: Intel DP55WB "Whitesburg" Motherboard

"The only question Whitesburg may start is, "Why is it based on P55 and not H55?" Blame those who decided on the gradual rollout of the LGA1156 platform. As a result of which, P55 PCH was the only available chipset for the first six months. So, if Intel DP55WB remains one of the cheapest in the market, its life cycle will be long. If similar products based on H55 will be cheaper, then there will be no sense in buying this motherboard."

Asus Radeon EAH 5870 1GB Video Card Review @ ITShootOut.com

"Aside from cost and availability there is little to differentiate one Radeon 5870 from another. They all use the same Batmobile-inspired cooler; offer almost the same bundle and identical clock speeds. Asus is aiming to change that by offering a feature unique to its own brand of cards – the ability to tweak the GPU voltage without a need for hardware modification. Today we are going to be evaluating the card’s overall capabilities and testing to see just how much of an advantage this unique “Voltage Tweak” feature provides when overclocking."

Boogie Bug Black Pearl Small Form Factor Case Video Review @ eTeknix.com

Today we are looking at the Boogie Bug Black Pearl Small Form Factor Case.

Though it's classed as a SFF case, it is quite a bit larger, but still smaller than a full sized case and able to take a micro ATX board and full sized PSU is a bonus. It also accepts multiple drives and has plenty of room for PCI expansion cards.

HIS Radeon HD 5670 Videocard Review @ Tweaknews


"The HIS Radeon HD5670 is a very capable card for the cheap price of only US$89 at your favorite online retailer. Although it is not a screamer, at almost half the price of a HD5750, for the moderate gamer, it could be considered quite a deal for a videocard sporting such an impressive stock cooling solution."
