Designtechnica reviews the InFocue X1 projector
"The X-1, introduced by INFOCUS in late 2002, is aimed primarily at the
business projector market. It features an excellent Faroudja DCDi
de-interlacing chip and is combined with a Pixelworks scalar chipset
used for scaling and other functions. It is an SVGA resolution DLP
(Digital Light Processing) projector (800x600 native resolution) that
utilizes a single chip display with a rotating color wheel, but the
picture quality belies the numbers. Not surprisingly, shortly after its
introduction it was discovered by home theater enthusiasts and quickly
became the entry level standard for that market. When INFOCUS dropped
the MSRP from $1500 to $999, it took off in popularity as the low cost
ticket to front projection home theaters.

OCW Exclusive Review : SiS 755 Ref board Socket 754
"SiS 755 is probably the second chipset that features a South Bridge supporting SATA RAID 0/1/JBOD through SiS 964. The board fully complies to HTT of 16 bits up/down at 800MHz. In this review, we compared it to various boards using ALi M1687 Ref board, VIA K8T800, NF3 150 boards."

Most of you know the benefits of using water-cooling. They run quieter than air-cooled systems and have the capability to provide much better temperatures. Water-cooling is becoming more and more popular, especially with enthusiasts. They are neat to use and can aid a lot in overclocking."

Psion Teklogix NetBook Pro @ TrustedReviews
"Psion comes back from the dead in the form of Psion Teklogix. The new Netbook Pro looks just as impressive now as the original Netbook did a couple of years ago, especially if lightweight and long battery life are paramount."

Antec Minuet Case Review @ Bjorn3D
"Thatís right, this case only accepts half height expansion cards. That said, integrated video and audio might be something to look for when buying your hardware. The computer industry seems to be offering more compact and full featured components (such as motherboards), so itís not out of the question to have a decent computer crammed into this case."
