Samsung 151s TFT LCD Display Review

The Samsung 151s TFT LCD display is a new product from the line of budget LCD displays at Samsung. The styling and appearance of the unit is much more pleasing than their older line of displays, marking an almost total restyling of all the new displays at Samsung.

17 Inch & 19 Inch Monitor Roundup

If you?ve been staring at the same monitor for the last 3 years, its colours are probably starting to fade and start up is probably taking longer than ever so it?s about time to put that baby to sleep. But cheer up, because there are limitless flavours of monitors out there at extremely affordable prices.

Audiotrack MAYA Soundcard Review

As the great ball of time rolls along, the price of new and cutting edge computer components slowly recedes until even the common man (read: me) can afford. This is no different for audio cards which is why there has been such a bloom in home studios over the past decade or so. Each passing year, the output quality of these studios has increased by an insane degree and the number and variety of products is enough to make me weep.

Sony MVC-CD300 Digital Camera Review

This is Sony’s latest addition to the CD Mavica series. Riding on the success of the CD200, the CD300 is the 3.3 Megapixel version of that digital camera. The defining quality in the CD Mavica series is the Carl Zeiss 3x zoom lens and the direct write to CD-R/CD-RW.

RCA Lyra 2 Portable MP3 Player Review

A number of larger sized MP3 players have been staking claim to various advantages depending on the price of the product and its make. A few players offer larger storage capacity, some offer fancy displays, some offer compact size and some offer versatility [i.e. Radio functionality, multiple formats for playback].

AVC Copper Skived Cooler Review

With all of the newer technologies and components that are arriving now, cooling solutions are becoming more and more important. Almost every computer that you buy now comes with an extra case fan, most of the video cards come with heat sinks and fans built onto them and cooling solutions for your ram are being heard of more and more. Hard drives are getting faster and therefore hotter and the all-important CPU is of course getting faster and still needs a reliable cooling solution.

Samsung SyncMaster 1200NF Review

There are many types of CRT monitors out in the market, and one of the main differences between CRT monitors is the screen type, be it flat or curved. Flat monitors generally cost more in price but offer reduced geometric distortion of the screen, while curved monitors sacrifice some screen uniformity for lower prices.

Lite-On FS020 Full Tower Review

Visual appearance might be important when we choose computer case, but we should not forget about its function. Case’s main function is to be a home for you PC. That means it should make your PC be comfortable and relativity safe. Comfortable means that the case should provide all the necessary specification (power supply, fan, airflow, etc.) that your PC requires. It also has to provide enough protection for your system. The Liteon FS020 with its solid frame is one of the best cases for that category. The case is a Tower case with a lot of open space to work on. It also has one big fan and there are 3 more places to put additional fan.

RCA Kazoo Review

Consumers have been assaulted by the overly competitive MP3 player marketplace in recent months and very little has made its way to stand out in the forefront. However, to some avail a few MP3 players still using built-in memory or smart media cards have made a name for themselves due to their advantage of being smaller and furthermore trendy. These smaller portable devices are easy to tuck away and forget about but yet are able to retain the same qualities of common portable CD players and larger MP3 players.

Ego Sys Wami Box Review

Recording high quality audio on your desktop or workstation is great, but often times it isn’t exactly convenient. At a gig, recording a live performance for instance. Sure a minidisk would be fine, but what if you wanted to put out a decent quality, live CD – you’d need some multi-track capabilities (at least two tracks, for the left and right channels).

Mechwarrior 4 Dark Knight Expansion Review

Sensing that a lot of money could be made doing this, your mercenary company decides to go along with this and starts hitting the Dresari forces.

Kenwood DPC-MP922 Portable MP3 CD Player Review

We all know MP3's are here to stay even with the fall of the once popular Napster. But do MP3 CD players have what it takes to stick around with the new devices out there today? I'm thinking about the iPod and Nomad in particular. These 2 devices have changed the landscape of MP3 playing, in the portable sense.

Dark Age of Camelot Review

Over the last few years we have seen the creation and rapid expansion of the Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game genre. Although Ultima Online didn’t really start the genre, it did a lot to popularize the idea of a virtual world where many people could congregate online and interact with each other. As if a game of this kind wasn’t addictive enough for some people, the transition from a 2D world to a 3D one surely made it so.

Batman Vengeance PS2 Review

Based on Paul Dini and Bruce Timm's TV series, Ubi Soft's Batman: Vengeance is the best Batman game in years. The whole animation style and presentation has been brilliantly created to give you the feeling of being inside one of the series’ episodes with its re-constructed 3D environment of Gotham City and over 40 minutes of gripping cinematics featuring the original voice cast of TV's The New Batman Adventures.

Final Fantasy X Review

When you’re playing a video game, there’s no bigger complement to pay it than to wish that it was over just so that you could play it all over again. That’s what I felt playing Final Fantasy X. This installment of Square’s flagship series makes good use of the PS2; bending some time-tested FF traditions while outright breaking others.

OCZ Dominator 2 Review

I have the privilege to test another one of OCZ’s products. This time it’s a heat sink fan. I have to say that OCZ has had a long-standing record of producing top quality product so I shouldn’t be disappointed by its performance. The question here is that new XP AMD processors above 1.4Ghz are heating up much faster than the K6 series.

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.

AMK Lian Li PC-67 Aluminum Case Review

If you haven’t played with an aluminum case in person yet it’s really quite something different. Not only are they amazingly great looking, they have awesome heat conductivity and are many times lighter then regular cases. Lian-Li is one of those notable computer chassis manufacturers now known for their alluring aluminum computer cases. They make an entire lineup of aluminum PC cases for just about any type of use.

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).
