Ortek Eagletouch MCK-90 Mini Silver USB Keyboard Review @ OCM

"Software wise, you don´t actually need to DO anything for the MCK90 to function as a keyboard; other than plugging it in. It´s HID 1.1 compatibility means that most versions of Windows should detect it "automagically" and allow you to begin typing within seconds. If you want the OSD and your multimedia buttons to function, you will however have to install the software. Installation is simple affair, just pop in the CD and it autoruns the installer, key in the serial number (from the front of the CD), tell it where to install; and does just that, adding itself to your Startup folder in the process. It also tells you to reboot, which you don´t actually have to if you´re using Windows 2000 or XP (Win9x Users may have to), all you really need to do is just open the software from the Start-Menu."

HWZ review: Albatron FX5200U graphics card

"The Albatron FX5200U is a standard GeForce FX 5200 Ultra graphics card with 128MB of RAM, but it is well styled to offset its simplicity. Based on an Ocean Blue PCB, copper GPU cooler and color-matched aluminium RAMsinks, the Albatron more than takes care of the cooling needs. However once again, product pricing among the FX 5200 Ultra cards seems to be the biggest problem, even though the Albatron was the most affordable among them."

I4U News: Laks USB Memory Watch Review

"The friendly Laks Watch Company sent us a free sample of the Laks USB Memory watch with 128MB Flash-Drive.

The Laks Watch company has its head quarters in Vienna Austria. The company is famous for their art wrist watches, like the one with "Klimt Der Kuss" look. With the USB Memory Watch the company expands into technology watches. I was looking forward to try this watch because I have a thing for watches that do things besides telling the time."

Behringer HPS3000, HPX2000, HPM1000 Headphones @ TechConnect

"Few have heard of Behringer and few know they are focused on producing professional gear for studio recording and mixing, DJ’s, producers, and audiophiles. I was pleasantly surprised to see one of my friends showing his enthusiasm about their great microphones used at the studio he works at. His appreciation for Behringer somehow bumped my expectations for the headphones reviewed today."
