Steelpad 4D Mouse Pad Reviewed @ myWORLD Hardware
"On first looks, you’ll notice that the Steelpad 4D is extreme thin at only 2.5mm in thickness (1/10 inch). The size of the Steelpad 4D is 290mm x 267mm which is quite huge but this shouldn’t be a problem thanks to its 2.5mm thickness. Unlike other hardcore thick mouse pads, the thin profile is an advantage for those with a smaller area to work with. For us, this is an advantage as it snugs in nicely under our keyboard on our pull-out keyboard board."

HWZ Review MSI FX5600-VTDR128 (GeForce FX 5600)
"MSI has a couple of variants based on the GeForce FX 5600 GPU, but we have received their top of the line version – the MSI FX5600-VTDR128. As with most of their graphics cards, this one lived up to all our expectations with a swell product packaging, niche product features, a well-designed card, all the required accessories and an enticing software/games bundle. Carrying a price tag of about US$155 (about S$265), the MSI FX5600-VTDR128 is justly priced for the extent of features and software bundle that it encompasses."
