Connect3D Radeon 9600 Pro 128 MB @ Bjorn3D
"I really like the Connect3D Radeon 9600 Pro 128MB card. Itís a much better performer in DirectX 9 games, like Tron 2.0, compared to the FX5600 (non-ultra) that I have been using and the visual quality is also clearly better: The antialiasing is smoother and the distant textures are crisper, thanks to 16x anisotropic filtering. Iíll be discussing that in more detail later."

Thermalright SP94 @ Legion Hardware
"When it comes to cooling solutions you really do expect the very best from Thermalright, and the SP94 was no let down. As the Pentium 4 processor increases its clock speed, the demand for a more efficient heatsink design becomes quite strong. Increased Pentium 4 clock speeds are not the only cause for a greater demand of high end cooling solutions. The Pentium 4 processor has also become a very popular overclocking item, and when amplifying not only the frequency but also the voltage, temperatures will rise drastically."

Albatron "Gigi" GeForceFX 5200U Review @ G3D
"Nvidia were probably kicking themselves after releasing the Ti4200. Most of the Ti4200 cores could easily hit Ti4600 speeds and above... all a video card maker had to do was include some faster RAM and, voila, instant Ti4600 at a fraction of the price! Albatron is no stranger to this tactic, as their Ti4200P Turbo will likely go down as the best overclocking Ti4200 card ever."

Samsung ML-1710 Monochrome Laser Printer @ EOC
"Laser printers have always been known to produce the best quality print. The Samsung ML-1710 uses electrophotography which is considered "True Laser" printing. This gives much sharper and crisper text than an ink or bubble jet style of printing. Also laser printing does not smudge or bleed, even when wet. Big bonus when you have to carry that term paper three blocks across campus in a rain storm."

"Itís been hailed as a revolution and 3ís advertising talks about video telephony as something that no-one should live without. My personal interest however, was not the video telephony at all, but rather the nice hefty bundle of inclusive voice calls that 3 offers at a very competitive price."
