Kingwin "KT-424-BK-WM" Aluminum Case Review @ G3D
"This case brings back fond memories of my Lian Li. It´s weird, as I still have my Lian Li... but the point is, I STILL feel good about my purchase of the PC-60, even to this day! The PC-60 will go down in my books as one of those products where it´s just plain hard to have buyers remorse over...So, the question I was asking myself in this review was, "Is this case a keeper? Is it one of those items that will span many, many upgrades?"

I4U News: GRANDISK 40GB MP3 Player and portable HD
"The GRANDISK is a retro looking piece of gadget. It is a portable hard-drive at its core, but has a SD Memory slot, a Display and is a full MP3 Player. Because it has built-in Lithium ion battery (14hour playtime), the GRANDISK does not need an AC Adapter when using it as external Hard Drive. The Gadget can play WMA and MP3 and WAV file formats. The Drive features an USB 2.0 connector. The GRANDISK is bigger than the iPod with measurements of 78.9(W)x122.0(D)x26.5(H) mm. The Player weighs 264g. The I-O Data Grandisk (MDM-H550) will sell for 54,800yen at the end of November. "

128MB W@lk Key USB 2.0 Flash Drive @ Bjorn3d
"The W@lk Key might not be the fastest performer in flash drive land, but it has a couple things going for it that the competition is lacking. First, it is very stylish. The aluminum casing looks great, is light and should be very durable. Keep in mind that Plexuscom also makes a plastic W@lk Key. The second feature that most of the competition lacks is the small, slim form factor. The fact that the W@lk Key will not get in the way of your other USB devices is a big plus in my books."

Highpoint e.SATA Kit V2.0 Review @ TweakTown
"Serial ATA drives are great. They are quick, use thin cables and don´t break the bank account in the process. Though what happens if you want to run drives external to your case? You turn to Highpoint with their e.SATA Kit V.2.0, of course!"

Designtechnica reviews the slim and stylish Pioneer DVR-SK12D Slim External DVD Writer
"We cannot argue that the Pioneer drive is great to look at and it would
score a 9/10 on the coolness factor alone, but the poor CD-R write times
leave something to be desired, at least on the desktop computer side. If
you mainly use your laptop computer, then you are probably already used
to the slower read/write times since laptops are behind desktops on the
recordable CD/DVD side. Overall we were satisfied with the performance
of Pioneer´s drive. The DVR-SK12D is a very rugged and flexible external
drive and would make a great companion for your trips on the road
provided you are near a power outlet."
