ATI Fries Monitors @ Bjorn3D

"ATI has continued to say their 3.8 drivers do not fry monitors. Well boys and girls I am dang glad the 957MB from Samsung I am reviewing has out of sync protection.
In the last 2 days since I have been playing with a 9800 Pro in my machine the monitor has had out of sync warnings 5 times now.
An out of synch signal sent to a non protected monitor with of burn it out pretty dang quick.
Good job Samsung for thinking ahead."

HWZ Review: TDK DED+440N External DVD Writer (Exclusive)

"Well, after spending a great deal of quality time with the drive and weighing all its pros and cons, we would have to say that TDK has churned out yet another winner here with the external 440N. Fusing stylish design with minimal sound and vibration during operation, commendable performance in both CD and DVD media into one eye-catching, affordable package, not forgetting the numerous bundled software included."

Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo D8830 @ TrustedReviews

"The hardware specification for the Amilo D8830 is pretty impressive for a notebook, but its worth remembering that this is a chunky machine and it weighs a cumbersome 3.6kg. But if all you need is a machine that you transport between to office and your home, youd have a hard time finding something much more powerful."
