I4U News: 2 Mega Pixel Camera Phone — Casio A5403CA
"Casio released today a 2 Mega Pixel Camera Phone. Could be the world´s first 2 MP camera phone. I did not see any other yet. Yes let it sink in, the japanese camera phones already enter the 2 Mega Pixel level where the US ones for the most is still under 1 Mega Pixel. At 2 Mega Pixel you have got a resonable Digital Camera and you do not need to carry another device. The Casio A503CA features a 2.2 inch QVGA Color Display and features a 16MB SD Memory Card to store the photos. The 2MP CCD can take UXGA (1600x1200) photos. The camera has auto focus and scene selection (character, night, close-up, etc.). The docking station connects via USB to a PC.

TrustedReviews reviews Epson Stylus Color C64
"The release of any new Epson printer is an event, but the Stylus C64 is one of the first printers supplied with DURABrite inks. DURABrite is Epson´s name for its new pigmented colour inks, for which it makes a lot of claims."

DarkVision Hardware Review: X-Trac Pro HS Optical mousepad
"Some time ago I discovered that hard plastic mousepads were much but really much better than those crappy clothed ones that you can find for free almost everywhere. So I was a little bit sceptical when I received this X-Trac Pro HS Optical mousepad from Dex Systems, because at first sight it looked a lot like a crappy clothed mousepad."

Samsung Multi-Function LCD 172MP @ B3D
"Bjorn3D just reviewed Samsung´s Swiss Army knife of a monitor, the 172MP. You can use it as a TV monitor, watch Picture-in-Picture video while you work, or use it as your game console´s video display. And the speakers even sound good!"

Designtechnica Panasonic Toughbook W2 Review
"The W2 is one of those rare head turners. No one in the States has probably seen one, and it looks different from everything else on the market. The combo drive loading mechanism is one of a kind, and, provided you don´t end up turning the unit off when you´re trying to show it off, makes for a nice feature demo in a coffee shop. The anime styling borders on fun and tacky, but that´s one of the reasons we liked it. No other laptop out now has that ´fun´ feeling that the W2 does. While it may not be "business appropriate", the W2 is an all around great second computer to have if you need the ultimate in portability and performance."

BIOSTAR IDEQ 200P Athlon64 SFF @ OCWorkbench
"This is the Athlon 64 Box from BIOSTAR. It looks sleek with the golden / black colour scheme. Although most SFF looks similar, the major difference could be the ease of installation. I have a pleasing experience with the installation of BIOSTAR iDEQ 200P as it is very straightforward and you do not need to wire up the box compared to most other offerings. Connectors are also well documented. The chances of connecting to a wrong device is practically 0%."

SilenX 400 Watt Ultra Quiet Power Supply Review @ Tweaknews.net
"I simply cannot praise the SilenX 400W PSU enough. I mean, I beat the hell out of this little unit, and it laughed at me. It never faltered once, and held true to all of its claims. It is stable and amazingly quiet.
