The "Cool Mouse" Mod @ Bjorn3d.com

"There are many different ways the body deals with this extra heat, but one of the more common is sweating. When people think of sweat, many associate it with the underarm, since this has both visual and nasal displays. But many people also suffer from what I like to call “sweaty hand syndrome”, or SHS. SHS can lead to a slippery mouse, which later leads to decreased performance, and the inevitable excuses as to why a player just didn’t do so well that last round."

Samsung SPL4225 42" Liquid Plasma Display Review @ MonkeyReview

"First and foremost, like just about everyone else, I was instantly pleased with its large 42” screen. Another positive aspect is the SPL4225’s compact design and light weight. With a base weight of about 32Kg, and dimensions of 40.9 x 3.5 x 25 (W x D x H), Samsungs done an extremely good job of ensuring a big display without taking up all that much property. The most impressive dimension is the very thin 3.5” depth, giving us the picture TV look when mounted on the wall."

Spire Whisper Rock IV Review @ OCM

"The solution to the dilemma of performance versus noise was the introduction of heatsinks which could take larger diameter fans, therefore offering the same amount of airflow, but at significantly lower RPM. The product we are looking at today is the Spire Whisper Rock IV Socket A cooler. It is the predecessor to the Spire Rock II, with the only real difference being the efficiency of the fan used. Will this cooler live up to its younger siblings performance benchmark? Will it help alleviate the stress on an overclockers eardrums? Read on to find out."

HWZ review: Siemens SL55

"Overall, we quite liked the Siemens SL55 for its abundance of features that´s packed into a tiny egg-shaped communication device. Although the Siemens SL55 is designed for both sexes, we think that it is more suited to the female crowd because of its petite form factor. Although the SL55 suffers from poor screen quality, soft ringtone volume and sluggish response, it´s still worthy to walk away with our 4 star award."
