Samsung SyncMaster 172MP 17inch Multifunction LCD Monitor Review @ Tweaknews.net

Ennyah DIGISound II Multi-Function MP3 Player Reviewed @ myWORLD Hardware

"Then, with the introduction of MP3, companies like Diamond created the first portable MP3 player, namely the Rio mp3 player that has taken a storm in the market. With it´s ease of use and robust playing capability, no one can go wrong when getting one of this player. However, with its introductory price of USD200 (RM760), it´s a price that most of us can´t afford. However, with many companies surfacing, MP3 player has become common and widely available. In conjunction to that, prices on MP3 player we find nowadays came in more affordable price."

GIGABYTE GA-7VT600 1394 Triton Series (VIA KT600) Mobo reviewed @ myWORLD Hardware

"This time around, VIA has unleashed its latest KT600 chipset to finish off what KT400 has left behind. Nvidia Nforce2 holds a tight grip on the performance crown in AMD platform and VIA seriously need something to keep up in this field.

DVD X Copy and DVD X Copy XPress Review @ Bjorn3d

"Most movies don´t actually seem to utilize the full capacity of a dual-layer DVD; however, they often use more than 4.7 GB of data, which means two discs would be needed any way. DVD X Copy XPress attempts to alleviate this problem by compressing the data to make it fit on one disc. I will also examine the standard DVD X Copy, which allows for a complete and perfect copy of a DVD movie, according to 321."

Athenatech A100SC M-ATX Case Review @ MonkeyReview

"Opening the side of the A100SC gave way to some warm welcomed features. Which, I honestly wasn’t anticipating. The first thing I noticed was that the 5.25” / 3.5” cage swings out, and is removable. This makes installing the mobo a little easier, as well makes swapping drives a snap. Also while inside, at the front, we find another area for a fan; this location is for an 8cm/80mm fan."
