Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6 and Ahead Nero 6.0 @ TrustedReviews

Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6: "I first came across Easy CD Creator back when it was an Adaptec product, before the company spun off the software division and called it Roxio. Even then, in its early incarnations, it was simple to use, offering an easy way to create data CDs and packet written CD-RW discs using the Direct CD part of the package."
Ahead Nero 6.0: "Ever since the company inception in 1995, founded by Richard Lesser, Ahead Software AG has been at the forefront of CD burning applications for the Windows platform. With the Nero Burning ROM 5 series becoming almost ubiquitous as the preferred method of burning a CD in a Windows environment. The later iterations of version 5 also gained the ability to write DVDs."

myGamer reviews Altec´s 251 Speakers

"Let the tests begin. We started our testing phase with games: Unreal II, Counter Strike and Max Payne II. To our surprise, the speakers held up quite well and were very comparable to much higher priced setups. The highs and lows were mixed flawlessly without distortion. Next phase: music. The speakers seemed to hold up well with songs not requiring much bass, but for the songs that did, the subwoofer would distort."

Albatron PX865PE Pro II Review @ G3D

"Intel´s Springdale chipset has been catching a lot of attention... and why wouldn´t it? It´s cheap, it´s fast, and it has native support for all the latest technologies. Gigabit ethernet, USB 2.0, Firewire, and SATA are all supported by the 865... all the motherboard maker has to do is lay the traces out to a connection."

Concord Eye-Q 5330z Digital Camera reviewed @ MetkuMods

"One thing about this camera that I absolutely fell in love with, is its macro mode. My previous camera limited me to minimum of 40 cm from target but this 5330z allowed me to go much closer with 8 cm macro. You can see some pretty nice sample macro images at the end of this review."

Designtechnica reviews the Plextor PlexWriter PX-708UF External DVD Writer

"Unfortunately the PX-708UF does not have the polish we have come to expect from Plextor products. We gave the PX-504UF a much better score because it was the first external DVD writer developed by Plextor and overall was a good first attempt. But we expected their updated version the PX-708UF to address some of the issues their predecessor had and this simply was not the case. The PX-708UF is a relatively fast and reliable drive, but it lacks the ability to daisy chain other FireWire devices through it and has a very loud internal fan. Priced at $299.99 we would recommend holding off for Sony´s external 8X drive which was just announced while writing this review."

SilenX Ultra Quiet Temperature Controlled Case Fans Review @ Tweaknews.net

"These fans perform fantastically. Airflow is impressive, the thermistor is a nice feature for those who don´t own a fan controller, and the silence is golden. I am seriously considering ordering 2 of these units to replace the remaining Antecs in my Lian-Li case."

Albatron KX18D Pro II (nForce 2 Ultra 400) Motherboard Reviewed @ myWORLD Hardware

"To be frank, Albatron has been producing nForce 2 board way back to few months ago where we took a look at KM18G Pro. The only thing that differ these two boards from each other was the form factor, whereby KX18D Pro II came in full ATX size. And talking about full ATX size, full ATX sized board usually offered much better expandability than smaller sized ATX board. KX18D Pro II or should I say the whole line of Albatron products came in blue colored PCB board, whereby it stands for tranquility and trademark of Albatron products."
