Soyo SY-K7V Dragon Review

The SOYO SY-K7V Dragon is a Socket-A board based on the VIA KT266. This board is geared toward the overclocking market with plenty of features which we will explore later in this review. One thing to note about this board is that it used VIA’s KT266 chipset which is competitive slower against AMD 760/1 and SiS 735 chipsets.

The first one we reviewed being the E-100 Rapid Shot, an excellent choice for high quality, high action photos; the second, the E-10, with its superior image quality for the most demanding projects; and now the C-700, a feature packed, consumer-level digicam.

Independence War 2 Review

Like many other games of this genre, I-War 2 features the usual list of mission types, from escort, and defence, to assaults and recon missions. However, they are varied enough that it’s difficult to get bored of them, and some missions are actually somewhat humourous in nature.

Olympus DM-1 Digital Voice Recorder

Unlike most other units, the Olympus DM-1 digital voice recorder and music player is actually targeted at corporate consumers, moving away from the already densely populated mainstream MP3 market. It is touted as a voice recorder, first, setting its sights at dictation oriented consumers.

After having reviewed the impressive Z33 budget printer, we decided to take a look at some more of Lexmark’s offerings. Thus we were faced with the $99US Z43, which features a 2400x1200dpi for both black and white prints in all paper types. It also lays claim to a speedy 12ppm black and 6ppm color print speed.

Xitel DG2 MDPort Review

Aficionados and stalwart supporters of the MiniDisc format have long been using their MD’s to record MP3 compilations… but until now the options were limited to either analogue recording, or else digital recordings on soundcards equipped with digital outputs. Sure, the superb Xitel AN1 gave astoundingly clear transfers in spite of being an analogue recording device, but some audiophiles and enthusiasts insist on digital recordings.

Arthur's Knights: Tales of Chivalry Review

One of the most enduring legends in the Western world is that of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Residing in mythical Camelot, King Arthur and his knights represented the chivalric ideals that people looked for during the Dark Ages and thus provided a basis for the popular image of what a brave and heroic knight should be.

Olympus DW-90 Digital Voice Recorder Review

When I first put my hands on the new Olympus DW-90 digital voice recorder I have to admit that I was a little skeptical. I was more familiar associating Olympus with cameras than digital recorders. And second, I didn’t fully understand why anyone would want to spend money on a digital recorder over just a regular cheap tape recorder?

Antec SX-1240 Full Tower Review

Despite their apparent lackluster appearance, computer chassis are actually one of my favourite system components. Think about it – the case is the visual representation of your computer (and physical one too, for the most part), so it’s important for it to not only function well (in terms of accessibility, airflow, etc…), but to look good as well.

ATI Radeon VE Review

The world of the inexpensive and powerful dual display video card is here. The ability to make use of two monitors has been available for some time now, but has been generally difficult to setup and maintain. The need for this type of technology in a useable form for the general public has been growing quickly. The ATI Radeon VE is one of the answers to this problem.

Matrox G550 Review

Matrox has long been hailed as the industry leader in 2D performance and image quality; and when the G400 MAX was released about three years ago, the company also boasted some impressive 3D performance as well. But since that time, Matrox has seen more and more of its support from the gaming community slip into the hands of the competition – namely 3DFX and NVIDIA (and now just the latter of the two…).

Compex 11Mbps Wireless Network Review

In the world of networking, Compex is a relative unknown. In spite of having been around since 1987, this company has yet to find the spotlight that other sideline players have captured. And it’s not because of a lack of products – indeed, Compex has a line-up as complete as most of the other mainstream players. Today, we’re taking a look at their WavePort Series of 11Mbps wireless LAN products.

Compaq iPAQ H3650 Review

Well first off I would have to say this is one sexy handheld. I personally love the look, very nice polished silver finish. I would say it pretty much looks like brushed metal but the casing is plastic. My first impressions of the size of the iPAQ was that it was of average size compared to other PDAs like the Palm IIIC and the Handspring Prism but then I found out that it was enclosed in a sleeve so I took that off and instantly the words “sexy” flashed in my mind.

Samsung SyncMaster 170MP Review

We have reviewed a few Samsung liquid crystal display (LCD) monitors in the past, all being 15 inches; however, today we received a 17 inch monster from Samsung, specifically the Samsung 170MP. Prior to the 170MP, we analyzed the 150MP which scored superlatively in all categories, obtaining Neoseeker’s editor’s choice award. The 170MP is the bigger brother with all the same features and added size. But how does the 170MP size up to its sibling monitor? We shall soon find out.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire: 3rd Edition Review

Everyone has heard of America’s number one game show “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire”. It’s a great game where you work your way to the top winning $1 million by answering15 questions correctly. It doesn’t sound that hard, especially since there are 3 lifelines to help the player along the way, but the questions are definitely tricky. Oh, and I almost forgot Regis – this game comes complete with his “wit and attitude”.

Lexmark Z33 Color Inkjet Printer Review

Although the Lexmark Z22 that we reviewed last week turned out some good results for its price class, it certainly was not a product to compare against the more mainstream midrange inkjets on the market. The Lexmark Z33 is STILL not at that level – instead, this modest inkjet printer hopes to fill the upper range of the budget niche, and manages to do so with impressive results.

Zalman Tech CNPS3100 Cooler Review

Probably having one of the more striking looks in the cooler market today, these Zalman coolers order up a sexy brew of CPU cooling magic (I don’t know what that means, but it sounds good :] ). Although at first site it appears to be a fan-less wonder, there certainly is are spinning fins involved – they are just not attached to the heatsink as you’ll see.
