NEC/Mitsubishi MultiSync LCD 2080UX+ @ TrustedReviews
"The MultiSync 2080UX+ is currently at the top of the NEC/Mitsubishi LCD range with a 20in diameter and a native resolution of 1,600 x 1,200. This is fantastic resolution to work with, especially if you constantly have multiple windows open like I do. Itís extremely useful if you find yourself cutting and pasting regularly from one window to another."

I4U Review: I4U Exclusive: Sony DSC-T1 First Look Review
"We just received the Sony DSC-T1. Currently the World´s Thinnest 5MP Digital Camera. We reported about this new Sony Camera the first time in October. I see a lot of Gadgets, but honestly when I opened the box of the Sony DSC-T1 removed the handbooks and CD and was looking at the tiny Digital Camera, I got a really big smile on my face. This Camera is not only thin but it is actually looks very small to. And this big screen (2.5") is out of this world. The Sony DSC-T1 is only on sale in Japan right now. It is supposed to be in stores in the US early 2004. The people at Dynamism shipped it to I4U for review and I am very excited about the fact that this first look is the first hands-on review of the Sony DSC-T1 available on the Web. I found two reviews that take a look aat a pre-production model of the Sony DSC-T1. Those reviewers were not allowed to post sample photos yet. The DSC-T1 that we got is an official japanese market release, and we did not get it from Sony directly so we can say and write what we want about it."

UV Molex Review @ JSI Hardware
"One of the latest moding crazes is to mod the PSU, there have been a number of company´s offering clear housings for PSU´s, as well as sleeving for the wires. All this can make your PSU look a whole lot nicer than the standard silver box that arrives when you purchase a PSU but one thing that you are still left with is the standard colored Molex connectors."

Athenatech A100SC Micro-ATX Designer Computer Case Review @ Tweaknews.net
"For the price, this is an excellent flex ATX/micro ATX case. The sleek front with the hidden devices allows you to use it in your home theater. The 60mm fans would ensure a quiet entertainment box. All that would be required is a graphics card capable of supporting a good video out stream, such as the ATI Radeon All In Wonder 9800 Pro."
