Fuzion Frenzy Review

Hmmm, better late than never with a review for an Xbox launch title, I suppose! :( Seeing as how it's been a while since Fuzion Frenzy has appeared on store shelves in November along with the Xbox, we'll cut straight to the chase and start doling out the impressions of this multiplayer party game.

Samsung SyncMaster 170T Review

LCD monitor prices are continuing to drop, and perhaps this holiday season is the time to invest in an ergonomic display. If you already own an LCD screen, then perhaps it’s time to upgrade to a 17” model; I know I want to. We have reviewed numerous amounts of LCD monitors, and the display under the scope today is none other than the Samsung 170T. Samsung is well known for their line of displays and is a leader in innovation. The 170T did not disappoint.

Conquest: Frontier Wars Review

It seems that no review of Conquest: Frontier Wars would be complete without first giving a mention about its tumultuous past. Highly anticipated by many, C:FW almost never made it out of the construction queue.

Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer Review

Logitech was first to market with a mouse that was both wireless, and optical. Their wireless MouseMan Optical is to date one of my favourite mice thanks to its ergonomic design, cordless convenience, and precision control. But just because Logitech got the jump on Microsoft didn’t mean they had won the game just yet, so it was no surprise that Microsoft would come tearing down the peripherals straightaway with the Porsche of cordless mice: the all-new Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer.

Digisette DUO-64 MP3 Player Review

To most, being “two-faced” is an undesirable trait to have. However, in the Digisette Duo-64’s case, it is more than a welcomed attribute. The Duo-64 functions both as a personal MP3 player and a self-contained MP3 cassette adapter – all in one.

Luigi's Mansion Review

Mario, Mario, Mario. You might be able to take out poor defenseless turtles. You might be able to step on walking mushrooms who are angry only in appearance but misinformed and misunderstood at heart. You might be able "grow larger" whenever you "absorb the magic" of those Magic Mushrooms. And you still get the girl. But when it comes to the dark majesty of the children of the night, your portly self is suddenly powerless (not that it was ever powerFUL).

AMD Athlon XP 1800+ Review

The competition between AMD and Intel has escalated even more with the release of AMD’s XP 1800+. If you look at what AMD is up against, you see it’s an uphill battle all the way to the top with Intel’s chips at 2000MHz.

Wave Race: Blue Storm Review

It's been a while since we've last seen Wave Race, Nintendo's very own jet-ski racing game series. Sequel to Wave Race 64, Wave Race: Blue Storm is no less than a launch title for the Nintendo GameCube, and not a bad one at that.

HP Laserjet 1200 Review

The HP laserjet 1200 is a high-speed midrange laser printer with few of the frills, but all of the charm of an office or home HP printer. I’ve used HP printers for over 10 years and the 1200 offers the familiar feel of its long standing line of printers, with one of those new age, small footprint designs.

Belkin Nostromo n50 & Nostromo n30 Review

Belkin is a company that manufactures a lot of products that can be found in many a computer stores' accessories section. They make everything from wrist pads, mouse pads, armrests…. almost every accessory out there. Until recently, Belkin had not been active in the gaming industry and its many related products. But now, Belkin steps into the gaming grounds with its new line of Nostromo line of products, not one but five – everything from "game pads" to "Speedpads". Two products I have for review today are just two of the complete gaming line of Nostromo products, the n50 Speedpad and the n30 GameMouse.

Gigabyte GA-7VTX Motherboard Review

Gigabyte is a well known and generally well-trusted motherboard manufacturer. They are also known for their regular and early support of AMD's latest and greatest. The GA-7VTX is a Socket A board based on the VIA KT266 chipset. The two major improvements this chipset brings to the table (over the recently declared, ancient KT133[A]) are Double Data Rate SDRAM and V-Link which is VIA's answer to Intel's interlink bus (dubbed the Interlink Hub Architecture).

Divided Ground: Middle East Conflict Review

War games have covered many of the famous wars of modern history - the US Civil War, World War I, World War II, and more - in their many battles and theatres. The 20th century conflicts in the Middle East, however, are covered for the first time by a major player in this genre, Talonsoft. Talonsoft's Divided Ground: Middle East Conflict 1948-1973 chronicles first the war surrounding the birth of the modern state of Israel and its subsequent wars of survival in 1956, 1967, and 1973.

As another contender in the MP3/CD player market, TerraTec approaches as a relative newcomer. It’s only been founded in 1994, but already it is one of the largest sound card manufacturers in Germany. TerraTec’s latest offering is the M3Po Go, a MP3/CD disc player, which plays CD, CD-R and CD-RW discs.

ATI Radeon 7500 Review

I would have to say that ATI has a tremendous job in giving nVidia a run for their money. The mainstream market is pretty much made up of these two giants. ATI’s Radeon chip series is a remarkable new chip technology. Designed for high-end graphic manipulation, the Radeon chip has proven to be more than just a regular video card.

Echo Audio MIA Soundcard Review

A little known fact about the world of computer audio is there is a distinct difference between audiocards and soundcards; the most notable of which is the quality of analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion. That is, the quality of playing back and recording audio on a computer with an emphasis on the latter.

Power Cooler PCH137 Review

CPU cooling is literarily the hottest topic in the PC market. AMD’s new processors above 1.4Ghz will need all the cooling it’s going to get. Especially, overclocking fans who push the limits of their cores will definitely need more powerful fans and specially designed heat sinks.

Fujifilm FinePix 6900 Zoom

Over the past number of years, digital cameras have gained a lot of fans in the market. Most people are choosing the filmless, lightweight, small-size, slick-looking digital cameras over the old school, bulky optical counterparts. Realizing this trend, manufacturers, like Fujifilm, have spent more money and resources on the research and development of the digital imaging technology. And recently Fujifilm has released a new product, and we are lucky to get a unit for testing.
