HP iPAQ h1940 @ TrustedReviews

"The iPAQ range of Pocket PC based PDAs have always been a step ahead of the competition. The first colour iPAQ was such a desirable unit that Compaq found itself unable to produce enough to meet the demand. The sleek brushed aluminium design has carried through the entire life of the range and it looks as good today as it did back then."

Samsung 173T @ Bjorn3D

"It is time to look at another LCD from Samsung. Over the past couple of months we have looked at the 192T and the 172MP. Now we have the 173T. All of these monitors have offered something special about them. 192T was the nice big 19Ē screen and the 172MP brought us a true multimedia with TV tuner and many inputs. What the 173T brings us is a 17Ē monitor that can be rotated for working on web pages or desktop publishing."

Kingston HyperX PC3500 reviewed @ MetkuMods

"...And then there is that problem that overclocking these modules need very high voltages, which void your warranty and can be unhealthy for memory modules. But if you are going to be extreme, you need extreme memory and Kingston HyperX PC3500´s filled with Winbond BH-5 chips are just that."

HWZ review: MSI KT6 Delta-FIS2R (VIA KT600)

"Overall, if you are looking for a feature packed Socket-A motherboard but at a more affordable price point than the nForce2 Ultra 400 and arenít really picky on performance, the MSI KT6 Delta-FIS2R is worth considering. At about US$128 (or S$230), the MSI KT6 Delta-FIS2R sounds a tad pricey. As mentioned much earlier, it costs just as much as MSIís top nForce2 Ultra 400 offering, but it offers more features — which really justify its extra cost."

EPoX 8HDA3+ Socket 754 Motherboard @ EOC

"The 8HDA3+ is based on the K8T800 chipset, supporting Athlon Socket 754 processors. The new chipset is loaded with features and we will see how well EPoX has incorporated this chipset into their design and of course put the board to the test against our Intel 3.2C on 875/865 motherboards."

Designtechnica reviews the HP DeskJet 9670 Wide-Format Printer

"The versatile 9670 is great at what it does but comes with a high price tag. We had a tough time deciding exactly what environment (business, home office or personal) this printer would fit into. HP states that the 9670 is great for businesses, creative professionals and photography enthusiasts. In a business environment where only black text documents are used this printer would be overkill. The business that utilizes large spreadsheets and requires color printing will find the HP 9670 fits the bill perfectly."

DinoxPC Review: Three Athlon XP 2600+ Analysis

"Actually we have three different models of Athlon XP 2600+ CPUs. Two based on core Thorougbred and one on core Barton with 512KB L2 cache. The differences between the three models are on the core frequency, the FSB frequency and the size of L2 cache.
In this article we would show how the three CPUs performs on different tests, like graphic tests, office automation, video encoding and so on."

OCZ DDR PC-4200 Dual Channel @ Madshrimps

"This article will not only be a review, it will discuss the discrepancies found from the label on your DDR, to the chipset claims of bandwidth. As Overclocker´s (Enthusiast´s), we can be an overly demanding and fickle bunch. We are insatiable when it comes to hardware performance, and whether it be DDR, Graphic´s, or CPU´s, we plug them in and immediately begin seeking the performance ceiling. Yet when we overclock our memory, we overclock the FSB, ergo the Processor. While we can use memory dividers, any experienced Enthusiast knows, this is simply slowing the system, and even with the best latencies, the divider defeats that purpose. This is especially true so long as were discussing the Canterwood/Springdale chipsets, for which OCZ Technology PC4200 was generally designed. At present the i875 MCH is the best "peak bandwidth" chipset available on the market."

Intel Desktop Control Center @ DarkVision Hardware

"NVIDIA released their System Utility yesterday, this leaded to me doing some research about Intel his Desktop Control Center program. The features of Intel Desktop Control Center are very interesting. All overclocking and tuning options are configurable from a Windows environment, without rebooting."
