Audiotrak Prodigy 7.1 vs. M-Audio Revolution 7.1 @ TechConnect

"Just to notice the little differences between the Revolution and Prodigy, we felt that the Prodigy put some more emphasis on bass response and highs, while the Revolution had a little bit more flatter sound and better stereo presence/detail. These are the little differences we managed to observe between the soundcards. We can safely say the soundcards did keep us in the front of the speakers quite a time, giving us a hard time to observe the differences."

Chaintech ZNF3-150 Zenith (nForce3) @ EOC

"The ZNF3-150 Zenith is based on NVIDIA´s nForce3 chipset, which is on a single-chip architecture. This is much different from the typical North Bridge and South Bridge common to many types of motherboards. This allows for lower system latency and less power consumption. This is one of the major differences between nForce 3 and VIA´s K8T800."

Samsung SyncMaster 173T Review @ MonkeyReview

"Of the listed specs the main points of interest lay within its 270 cd/m2 brightness, 450:1 contrast, and 25ms response time. All of these results tie in within this monitors price range, about $490 ~ $550 USD. Though the brightness level and contrast ratio are acceptable, the 25ms response time wouldn’t be my first choice when it comes to high speed FPS gaming."

Acer MP3 Flash Stick @ TrustedReviews

"An MP3 player has long been an item on my ‘to buy’ list and I was quite excited to get a closer look at this offering from Acer. Once unboxed, my fist impression was one of ‘oh it’s a little fatter than I thought’. Indeed, my main buying concern for an mp3 payer is that it has to be very small. Too big, and I might as well stick with my MiniDisc player."

DFI LanParty NFII Ultra Nforce2 Motherboard Review @ Tweaknews.net
