BenQ Joybee 150 @ TrustedReviews

"If you donít have a USB key yet, then you can always use the Joybee 150 as a removable flash drive to back up your data from or to different PCs. However, letís not forget this little gadgetís main purpose in life, and as a music player the audio quality is clear and crisp."

BenQ Joybee 150 @ TrustedReviews

"A wireless bridge is a device that can connect a standard Ethernet device to a wireless network seamlessly. One such device is the Netgear ME101 and I have to say that it works like an absolute dream."

Ricoh Caplio G4 wide 3.24-megapixel Digital Camera Review @ JSI Hardware

"I have to say, when I first saw the RDC-5300 (pictured above) I expected it to be low quality and very clumsy, but I was wrong. It is larger and around 4 times heavier than the G4, but the picture quality and the functions of this camera was excellent."

Harmony SST-659 review on eCoustics

"Harmony calls the SST-659 a "Family Remote". But don´t be fooled by the name. Yes, it is simple enough for any family member, but is still packed with features for the hardcore hobbyist. Every button is clearly labeled and arranged logically for ease of access. Most importantly, each button does exactly what it is supposed to do."

AOpen H360 Case Review @ Legit Reviews

"Today we are taking a look at the AOpen´s H360 Micro ATX Case. Selecting the right case is an important part of the small formfactor PC building process. Since these cases are typically used in a location where they are visible to others, enthusiasts try and avoid a boring beige case..."

SiS 655FX Reference board review @ MonkeyReview

"Today weíll be taking a look at the SiS655FX reference motherboard, which has a few more improvements over the SiS655 chipset. Among these features include 800FSB support (Pentium 4 C), and dual channel DDR400, offering bandwidth up to 6.4GB/sec. Bundled with the SiS655FX northbridge chip is also the SiS964 southbridge chip, offering the ability to use all the latest common features in PCís today, such as RAID and Serial ATA."

Crucial RADEON 9800 Pro 256MB @ Bjorn3D

"Crucial recently released their winter line-up of graphics boards, with the RADEON 9800 Pro 256MB leading the pack. Unfortunately, they are a little late to the game with this one for two reasons. First, as seen in the benchmarks, NVIDIA has gained ground with the 52.16 driver release. Second and most importantly, the price of this board cannot compete with 256MB GeForce FX 5900 Ultra boards that have been on shelves for months, especially since they have decreased in price even more since the release of the 5950."

Legion Hardware ó Gigabyte GeForceFX 5950 Ultra (N59U256V) 256MB

"Unfortunately, Gigabyte did little to change the appearance of the GeForceFX 5950 Ultra, leaving it based on the NVIDIA reference design. While this design works well, there is nothing setting the Gigabyte GeForceFX 5950 Ultra apart from all the other GeForceFX 5950 Ultra cards based on the reference design, apart from a Gigabyte brand sticker. On the other hand, this is an intelligent way for Gigabyte to keep the cost of their GeForceFX 5950 Ultra solution to a minimum."

Slim Devices Squeezebox Review @ Designtechnica

"While the company Slim Devices has been around for over two years, we only just learned of their SLIMP3 networked music player this summer. We checked out the SLIMP3 for a review and loved it. In that review, we mentioned that the only thing it lacks are digital outputs and wireless capabilities.
Just as if the folks at Slim Devices had catered to our every whim, only a week after we posted our review of their SLIMP3 they were telling us of their new networked media player, the "Squeezebox".
We were the first review site to have our hands on the Squeezebox and unfortunately only had it for one day. But in that 24-hour period we used the Squeezebox as much as possible and tried everything we could. So did it improve upon the already editors-choice SLIMP3? Read on to find out."

Corsair boosting DDR memory to PC4400 (DDR550)! @ DarkVision Hardware

"Is PC4200 (DDR533) memory still too slow for you? For most people this will be more than enough I think, so it is very questionable if there really is a need for faster memory at the moment. Anyway real die hard overclockers will be happy to hear that Corsair launched a few new PC4400 memory sticks today. These memory sticks are able to run at an amazing speed of 550MHz DDR and are all tested with the Asus P4C800E Canterwood motherboards."

A+ GPB CA-AP107 Case Review @ Creative Mods

"The CA-AP107 sports several surprising features usually reserved for higher end cases. Behind the very sturdy front flip panel hides two front mounted USB 2.0 ports as well as headphone and Mic ports plus a spot for a 1394 Firewire upgrade. With its gunmetal finish, blue LEDs, and chrome accents, the CA-AP107 was shaping up to be one sweet case."
