SIS 755 Ref board tested against all major chipsets from ALi M1687, VIA K8T800, nVIDIA NF3 @ OCW
"We have seen a number of Athlon 64 board reviews on OCW. ALi M1687 Reference board, Gigabyte K8NNXP (nForce3), Gigabyte K8VNXP (K8T800), BIOSTAR K8VHA Pro (K8T800) and BIOSTAR iDEQ 200P (nForce3). This time round, we will take a look at another Athlon 64 chipset — SiS 755. 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. Some of the other chipsets don´t support that fully which resulted in a slightly slower performance. Coupled with a proprietary 1GB MULTIOL link between the North and South bridge, this is a wider pipe compared to some other designs."

PC4000 HyperX Examined @ Legit Reviews
"Legit Reviews has the honor to work closely with the majority of the memory manufacturers in the world and recently learned that Kingston has begun using some Hynix IC´s on their PC4000 line. Prior to using Hynix IC´s Kingston was using Samsung Revision "C" IC´s on their PC4000 memory modules and received some negative feedback from the enthusiast community.

iRock 730i 128Meg Digital MP3 Player Review @ Tweaknews.net
"There are a lot of things that I love about this unit, and only a couple things that can be improved upon. First off, the LCD is fantastic, but serves as both a Pro and Con. It looks awesome, is crystal clear and makes for a good show piece, however it also sucks up battery life."

Elonex eXentia @ TrustedReviews
"The display itself is first rate, with a bright and vivid image that’s viewable from almost any angle. Elonex has also improved on the original design specs laid out by Gateway and Intel for the North American market, by placing a sheet of non-reflective glass over the TFT panel to keep it safe. Let’s face it, with a device that is viewed as a piece of consumer electronics, sooner or later someone would spray the screen with furniture polish. It also stops any kids damaging the screen by poking sticky little fingers at it."

Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook T 3010 Tablet PC @ TrustedReviews
"The key characteristic which makes Tablet PCs different to standard notebooks is that you can write directly to the screen. Your writing can remain in freehand style, or can be converted into editable text, while your drawings can be saved as images for sharing and storing. Some Tablet devices lack a keyboard, offering only the screen, and are known as ‘slate’ style devices. Others, like our review model, have a keyboard and can be used like normal notebooks, but incorporate a swivel mechanism which allows the screen to be twisted and laid flat, screen uppermost, for use in ‘slate’ mode. Writing to the screen requires the use of a digitizer pen since the screens are not touch sensitive."
