World-Exclusive: Sapphire HD 4730 512 MB @ techPowerUp
"Sapphire's new HD 4730 is based on the RV770 GPU which is used on the HD 48xx Series. Such a choice had to be made because the availability of the HD4770 GPU is extremely limited at this time - while customer demand is up. Sapphire offers their card with 640 shaders and 512 MB GDDR5 memory at an extremely competitive price point of only $79. But is that enough to take over that market segment?"

Top 10 Touch-Screen Devices @ Digital Trends
"Buttons belong to 20th century. While we're sure that making electrical contact with the press of finger seemed nigh-miraculous at the same time that most people were still using the bathroom outside, the little switches and levers that brought us to this current age of technology have worn out their welcome. We're ready for something better. We're ready for something more refined. We're ready for touch screens."

Print Green by Recycling Ink Cartridges @ Digital Trends
"You may not give much thought to what happens to your ink-encrusted old print cartridges after the new ones come out of the foil wrapper, but tossing them away should be about the last thing you consider. Like paper, plastic, glass and all the other materials you load into your recycling bin every week, there's a whole other life for print cartridges out the landfill. And even better, like soda cans or old cars, you might even be able to score some money for your good deed in the process. Here are three environmentally friendly options for your used print cartridges when their printing days are (seemingly) over."

Sony HDR-TG5V Review @ Digital Trends
"Based on the HDR-TG5V's diminutive size, some folks might be tempted to think of Sony's new ultra-compact HD Handycam as being little more than a Flip with an inflated price tag. But that's just not so. This little marvel of consumer-grade camcorder engineering has most of the same features found in Sony's portlier high-definition video cameras, including SteadyShot image stabilization, manual focus, and even a relatively large internal solid-state drive capable of holding hours worth of gorgeous, highest-quality 1080p video. Plus, it's got at least one trick up its sleeve that you're not likely to find in any other HD camcorder, ultra-compact or otherwise: GPS geotagging. Tantalized yet?"

AMD Phenom II 42 TWKR Black Edition Processor @ Legit Reviews
"For our liquid nitrogen testing we insulated the motherboard with a combination of artist eraser and Vaseline and mounted our K|ngp|n F1EE liquid nitrogen pot on top of the CPU with a dab of Arctic Silver Ceramique for the thermal compound. After pulling the pot down to around -188 Celsius we began our runs starting with 3DMark 2006. We were using a Gigabyte MA790FXT-UD5P with two Corsair Dominator GT 1866C7 2GB modules, two AMD HD4870x2 video cards at 822MHz core 950MHz memory, and a single Corsair HX1000 PSU powering the entire system. We had to push the vcore up to 1.8v to achieve the following 6.6GHz screen shot on the AMD Phenom II 42 TWKR Black Edition processor..."

Synology DS209, Budget Alternative to DS209+ @ Bjorn3D
"Back in March, we reviewed the Synology DS209+, an updated version of the highly acclaimed Synology DS207 series. We love the DS209+'s excellent transfer performance and its user-friendly interface that we have given the unit our coveted Golden Bear Award. Unfortunately, the asking price of the DS209+ may deter some users from spending $500 on a NAS where they may not need all of the features found on such expensive unit. Instead, some people maybe looking at more affordable unit which shares similar performance and features but at the same time, costs much less. Realizing such demand, the folks at Synology has recently launched the DS209 that would satisfy budget oriented customers."

Samsung LN55A950 120HZ 55 inch 1080P LCD TV Review @ Tweaknews
"The model being reviewed today is fully 120hz compliant, has full LED backlighting, it has Samsung's top of the line 55 inch LCD panel for their best color reproduction they have available. This should be an interesting review to see if the newer 120hz technology does work, or as with any first implementations, this could be deemed as an expensive trial run to iron out the bugs before the true home run hit is released the second year."

Palm Pre Review @ Digital Trends
"How many so-callediPhone killers have we sifted through by now? It seems like every other month, another company rolls out another smartphone groomed to dethrone the now-ubiquitous Apple superphone. From the T-Mobile G1 to Sony's Xperia X1, many have tried. And so far, they've all fallen pretty flat."

BlueAnt Q1 Review @ Digital Trends
"Picking up a Bluetooth headset to gab on the go may spare you the distraction of pinning a phone to your ear with one hand while driving, but if you still need the handset to browse your contacts, dial, and hang up, you're far from free. Enter BlueAnt's Q1. Though many phones work with a handful of voice commands preprogrammed into them, the Q1 is one of the few headsets that actually run almost entirely by speaking to it."

Thermal Paste Round Up @ Bjorn3D
"We as computer users, are always on the search for the best thermal paste we can find. The use of good thermal paste has become just as important as the heat sinks and or cooling devices we use to help keep the temperatures of our CPU's cool. Ever more so, we need to rely on our thermal paste's performance even more as summer is upon us. Well, at least for us Northern Hemisphere people."

Cooler Master SNA 95 Slim Notebook Universal Power Adapter Review @ Tweaknews
"The idea of a single adapter to charge and power your laptop and all your other mobile devices is very appealing and would be especially desirable by business travelers who depend on these devices for their livelihood. Cooler Master's release of the SNA 95 has garnered more than a little attention around the web and I was excited to get one for evaluation. However, after using the thing for a week or so, I'm a bit underwhelmed."

ZOTAC IONITX-A-U Atom N330 WiFi N Motherboard Kit @ BmR
"We all want more for less. That's why enthusiasts overclock, and that's why we build HTPCs. The PlayStation 3 game console has sold millions of units because of its ability to delivery realistic video game performance, but Sony has sold more units because of the PS3's Blu-ray Disc player capability than any other factor. Bringing personal computer technology into the home theater environment has just come one step closer, thanks to the NVIDIA ION platform. The synergistic effect of an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M and the dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Atom process have delivered true high-definition performance beyond any HTPC before it. The Zotac IONITX-A-U packages the Atom N330 CPU and 9400M GPU on a Mini-ITX DDR2 motherboard. Benchmark Reviews discovers how nice it is to have native HDMI connectivity from the HTPC into the HDTV in this article."

Inno3D GeForce GTX 295 Platinum (Single PCB) @ techPowerUp
"NVIDIA has silently introduced a new revision of their GeForce GTX 295. The new version crams everything onto a single PCB. While the performance characteristics have not changed, thermals, fan noise and power consumption did change indeed. Is the new single PCB GTX 295 a success or just an unimportant product revision?"

IN-WIN Comander 650/750 watt PSU @ Bjorn3D
"Power supplies are everywhere and it seems just about every computer component manufacturer makes one or two. Adding to the mix of the total confusion, is what power supply do we get to use in our computers? The Power Supply Unit is the most important component that is in our computers. Unlike video cards, motherboards, CPU's, etc., if a power supply fails, it normally takes out one or two other important computer components along with it."

AMD DirectX11 White Paper Released @ Legit Reviews
"Some of the guys up in Toronto sent us an e-mail this morning and explained that DirectX 11 is important and we should take NVIDIA downplaying it with a grain of salt. It seems they are worried that the tried and true NVIDIA marketing machine will possibly start pumping out a lot of information to deflect and sway consumers. This is likely going to be the case as NVIDIA is rumored to be late to the game with DirectX 11 graphics cards and is going to have a rough time to get them released this calendar year. To help avoid this looming marketing battle, AMD has released a white paper that has been put together by AMD to showcase the importance of DirectX 11 and why it matters. They also gave us quick breakdown explaining that DX 11 is about efficiency..."

Asus HD 4770 Formula Edition @ Bjorn3D
"Asus has long been considered one of the top manufacturers of all kinds of PC components, so it comes as no surprise that they have decided to make their own cooler for the brand new ATI HD 4770. They have called this card the Formula edition. Asus being the big company they are, have paid a lot of attention to detail on the heat sink design. I will explain a bit later on in the review. With this larger heat sink comes lower temperatures. Surely Asus geared this card for the mid range graphics card buyer who is looking to gain some performance by overclocking."

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1 Review @ Digital Trends
"The HX1 was one of the biggest hits from the 2009 PMA convention, the camera industry's toned-down version of E3. Press people tend to be pretty jaded, yet there were audible gasps when this camera strut its stuff during the official introduction. We're referring to a demo of the sweep panorama function, which lets you take a 224-degree panorama image just by holding the shutter and sweeping the scene. We--along with everyone else--were very impressed when the results were shown on a big screen. Anyone who has tried to stitch photos together on a computer will immediately appreciate this feat. On top of that, the 9.1-megapixel DSLR lookalike grabs 10 frames per second at full resolution, captures 1080p videos, and has a wide-angle 20x mega-zoom, all for $469. This sounds really sweet on paper; let's see how she works in this big bad world."

ICY DOCK MB877SK-B @ Bjorn3D
"The ICY DOCK MB877SK-B HDD mobile rack allows users to use their 3.5' backup Hard Disk Drives and turns them into a portable device. This device gives us the ability to remove our SATA HDD's easily and without the need of going inside of our computers, unplugging the HDD's SATA cables, power cables, while also not having to remove a bunch of screws so we can remove that drive. It is as simple as counting 1,2,3 and that drive we need is out. This unit is also perfect for those who need to recover your family's/friend's precious information stored on their HDD's simply and effortlessly."

ASRock M3A780GXH/128M
"Back in April we reviewed the ASRock X58 SuperComputer and found it to be a phenomenal motherboard for use with Intel Core i7 processors. While ASRock is regarded as being a budget manufacturer, this affordable Intel X58 motherboard could overclock quite far, ran well with Linux, and offered a great set of features. While that was a very nice Intel product, how are ASRock's current offerings on the AMD side? In this review we have our hands on the ASRock M3A780GXH/128M to see how well this AM3 Socket motherboard with a 780G + SB710 Chipset performs under Linux."

EVGA E761 X58 SLI Classified Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
"What is there to say? The EVGA X58 E761 Classified is like an over-the-top blockbuster movie; it wows you on all fronts all the while costing an arm and a leg to produce. Core i7 is a new processor and motherboard and BIOS engineers are still figuring it out, but the team at EVGA has clearly stumbled across something to be able to release a board that pushes these chips past the notorious 220MHz base clock wall. This board reminds me a lot of the Asus LGA775 Rampage Extreme, except the Rampage Extreme came so late in the game..."

Kingston HyperX PC2-6400 SODIMM Memory Kit Review @ Bigbruin.com
"While the memory performed well, the results in any test couldn't really make a strong case for 4GB over 3GB or 2GB, and for that matter 800MHz over 667Mhz. Benchmark results are not the only thing to consider when looking at a memory upgrade, as most people are well aware that adding more memory improves overall system performance, especially when multi-tasking."

System76 Bonobo Professional
"Back in March we reviewed the System76 Serval Professional notebook and found it to be an excellent contender at the time. This notebook, which shipped with Ubuntu 8.10, had packed an Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 processor with a GeForce 9800M GTS graphics card and other great hardware, but since then System76 has rolled out notebooks with newer and better hardware. One of the new notebooks to recently leave the System76 facilities is the Bonobo Professional, which packs an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000 processor and an impressive NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M discrete graphics processor. In this article today we are seeing how this high-end notebook performs with Ubuntu 9.04."

Icy Dock MB876SK @ Bjorn3D
"Quick swap Hard Disk Drive bays have been around for a long time. The reason is becuase many companies can not afford to have their servers down for an extended period of time, so they clone the drive and put in a brand new working drive to keep the system up. It is a fact that many of us are not buisness owners, so what use would we have of this technology? If you happen to have tech savy friends, this is very easy to answer. You can all get the same hot swap bay and swap HDD's to share the latest game update without downloading the same file multiple times. This can save a lot of time in the long run."

Best Software for Netbooks @ Digital Trends
"Netbooks make fine travel machines for surfing, typing and watching videos, but as most new owners eventually discover, things start to get a little slow when you push too far beyond the basics. After all, 1.6GHz and 1GB of RAM can only take you so far. But you needn't resign yourself to typing in Notepad and playing Minesweeper whenever you leave the big guns at home in favor of a netbook. We've rounded up some of the best lightweight software from across every category that will turn your netbook into a an all-around gaming, multimedia and productivity machine without slowing it to a crawl in the process. And the best part is, almost all of them are free."

WD My Book World Edition II External 2TB NAS Drive @ Legit Revies
"The Western Digital My Book World Edition II 2 TB network storage system uses RAID 1 (Mirrored) technology to automatically and continuously maintain a second copy of user’s data using supplied software that you need to install on each computer that you want to keep backed up. When running in RAID 1, if one drive in the two-drive system ever fails, the system continues to run and the data is safe. The My Book World Edition II storage device can be run in RAID 0 (Striped) mode as well if speed over redundancy is required. All My Book World Edition II's ship in mirrored mode, though, as the main purpose of this drive is for data security.

In a very crowded field of contenders, it doesn’t really stand out, and doesn’t draw attention to itself, but it performs admirably.

ASUS EN9600GT 512 meg @ Bjorn3D

Reason for me saying this, well it is cheap enough for just about any one on any budget for light to moderate gaming, can be used in a HTPC for Blue Ray play back, and finally can be used as a dedicated Physx card for those who wanting or needing that extra little bit in our Ageia Physx based games."

ASUS Maximus II Gene mATX Motherboard Review @ Benchmark Reviews
"ASUS has some tough shoes to fill. Fortunately, they're familiar shoes; their own, in fact. A long string of high performance motherboards that got adopted simultaneously by the enthusiast and gaming sets, led ASUS to create a specialty brand segment they call "Republic of Gamers". The ROG Creed goes like this: "The Republic of Gamers is committed to delivering the most innovative and best performing PC solutions to enhance the gaming experience of power users." That's a tall order, especially in the competitive PC component market where today's news is already old news. One of the newest members of this Republic is the Maximus II GENE, part of a new group of small form factor components that give nothing away in performance to their larger brethren. Benchmark Reviews is pleased to review this latest offering, based on the Intel P45 and ICH10R, and we put it through the wringer against a well known full ATX-size reference board. The new ASUS Maximus II Gene motherboard goes by the tagline: Mini Size, Max Mobility. You have to take these marketing lines with a grain of salt, because taken at face value, you might expect a mini-ITX board. Instead we have a micro-ATX (uATX) board that squeezes almost every last feature from its feature-rich ROG brother into the slightly smaller format. A more accurate description might be: Micro Size, Max Performance. Let's dive in and take a look at what ASUS calls: A new band of ROG heroes, the GENE squad."

Kingston 4GB DataTraveler 101 USB Flash Drive @ Legit Reviews
"One of the things that makes the DataTraveler 101 interesting is that the Flash drive was built with simplicity in mind, which helps keep the price low. The 4GB version (DT101C/4GB) of the DataTraveler 101 that we are taking a look at today runs just $11.99 shipped, which is more than a fair price as the DataTraveler 101 is backed by a five-year warranty and free tech support. Other companies like Crucial, Transcend, and RiDATA offer just two year warranties, so be sure to keep the warranty length in mind when pricing USB 2.0 Flash Drives."

PC Power & Cooling Pro-Source 1500 @ Bjorn3D
"PC Power & Cooling (Acquired by OCZ in 2007) has long been a serious player in the computer power supply arena. We were pleased and surprised when they contacted us about a Uninterpretable Power Supply (UPS) called the Pro-Source 1500. The UPS arena is new for PC Power & Cooling but given their reputation for rock solid large single rail power supplies we're betting that the Pro-Source 1500 is just as dependable as the PSU so many people have come to know and love. While many PSU companies ran with the crowd and went modular and multiple rail PC Power & Cooling staunchly insisted the modularity in a computer PSU, and the removable power cords, change the PSU's ability to deliver clean power and add resistance to the delivered power. As for multiple rail PSU, PC Power & Cooling doesn't manufacture those, they stuck with large single rail PSU insisting that a single large rail delivers cleaner more dependable power. A company that refused to profit from trends and insists on d!"

Upgrade Your Laptop @ Digital Trends
"The old axiom that you can't upgrade a laptop has never been less true. Sure, your nay-saying, desktop-bound friends who repeat it have a basic kernel of truth in their favor - the core guts of a mobile machine are pretty much set in stone. But if you're not looking to completely revamp a computer (which can hardly be called an upgrade anyway), aftermarket manufacturers have found plenty of clever ways to skirt the issue of expandability, and slap new parts onto your aging laptop, giving it new functionality that may not have even been possible when it was built. So if your $2,000 wonder machine from three years ago doesn't seem quite so wondrous any more, but another two grand for a new model isn't in the budget at the moment, here are some inexpensive ways to hop up the old girl and get her running like never before."

"Along with AMD's launch of the Phenom II and Athlon II processor families this year, we've also witnessed a steady shift in focus from their AM2+/DDR2 platform to a full AM3/DDR3 platform. The good news is that these newer AM3 processors support both DDR2 and DDR3 memory, allowing consumers to upgrade without replacing their whole system. Still, that leaves many wondering if they're missing out by not making the jump to DDR3 memory. To help answer that question, today Benchmark Reviews puts Gigabyte's DDR2-based MA790X-UD4P motherboard to the test."

"Bjorn3D has reviewed the Kingston KHX12800D3LLK3/6GX memory, a 3x2GB triple channel DDR3-1600 memory, when Core i7 was first launched. Back then, DDR3 was selling at such a premium price that upgrading to faster DDR3 costs an arm or a leg. Six month has passed and we are seeing the price of the DDR3 has dropped significantly. The price drop of the DDR3 memory means that the DDR3-1600 is no longer reserved for enthusiasts but has reached to the mainstream prices where it is easily to find a 3x2GB DDR3 1600 as cheap as $95.00."

Nokia N97 Review @ Digital Trends
"After the disappointment foisted upon us by Nokia's last flagship phone, the N96, we weren't exactly holding our breath for the next N series model. What would have been a respectable smartphone based on specs alone fizzled and thudded alongside competitors like the iPhone 3G, T-Mobile G1, and even a handful of gracefully reskinned Windows Mobile phones, making Nokia seem like a geezer trying to keep up with a new breed of smartphones it couldn't quite comprehend. But that was last year, and Nokia has clearly put some major effort into retooling the N series for 2009. After some extra time incubating somewhere in Finland, the N97 looks and feels nothing like its rather lame predecessor, bringing a fresh face to some of the best hardware ever to fit into one chassis."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M
"After launching the GeForce 200 series last year, NVIDIA unveiled the GeForce GTX 260M and 280M GPUs for notebook computers earlier this year. The GeForce GTX 280M is currently NVIDIA's fastest notebook GPU, even though it is derived from the GeForce 9800GTX+ core rather than the GTX 280 desktop variant. This 55nm notebook GPU has 128 processing cores, supports two-way SLI, features NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology (important for VDPAU usage under Linux), and other features to pack a desktop performance punch in notebook computers. The Linux-friendly System76 manufacturer recently introduced the Bonobo Professional notebook computer with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M and an Intel Core 2 Quad processor, which we happen to be looking at now and today are delivering some initial performance results from this high-end NVIDIA GPU under Ubuntu Linux."

Arctic Cooling Fusion 550RF ATX Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
"The Fusion 550RF is manufactured by Seasonic for Arctic Cooling and it is internally identical to Corsair VX450W and Antec Earthwatts 500W power supplies. The strange thing about these internally identical power supplies is that the Wattage power ratings are all different. Between the three companies a 100W rating difference is observed, which is pretty crazy no matter where you live or with whom your brand loyalty lies. After a little bit of research it appears that Arctic Cooling rated their power supply at 550W due to that being the peak power rating. This is not something we ever like to see as most other name brand companies don't rate their power supplies like this. The power supply label on the Fusion 550RF says that it can handle 550W loads for a maximum of one full second, so when shopping for power supplies this one is more in the range of a competitor's 450W-500W power supply..."

ViewSonic VX2433wm 23.6 Inch DVI/HDMI TFT LCD Monitor Review @ Bigbruin.com

With a resolution of 1920x1080 you are able to display the latest HD content, something the majority of smaller monitors are not capable of. The monitor's visual qualities are complimented by being able to connect via all three of the most popular connections; HDMI, DVI and VGA."

Kingwin ABT-1000MAIS Power Supply @ Bjorn3D
"With new components like graphics cards and CPU's becoming bigger hogs of electricity, you need a new PSU that will hold up to all the added stress of high powered components. A power supply may be an afterthought, but when your current one dies because you overloaded it, then you'll think otherwise. This overload on the PSU could also lead to other components being blown in the PSU's last hurrah. This could potentially leave you with hundreds of dollars in fried equipment."

Samsung Jack (SGH-i637) Review @ Digital Trends
"We understand Ozzy Osbourne. In his wacky commercial about finding the perfect personal assistant, Ozzy clearly elucidates the benefits of the Samsung Jack - a 3G Windows Media 6.1 smartphone that's actually smart (complete with that scheduling thingie), fully multimedia equipped and (almost) fun to use, and, at $99.99 after rebate and two-year contract with AT&T Wireless, really cheap. Considering a couple of annoying logistical quirks, is it a better value than a touchscreen Windows 6.1 phone though? Read on to find out."

Samsung Alias 2 (SCH-U750) Review @ Digital Trends
"Brilliant. Genius. Great idea. It's a wonder no one thought of using the E Ink electrophoretic display technology found on Amazon's Kindle to create a multi-use keypad for a cellphone. But that's exactly what Samsung has done with its second-gen Alias 2. Using E Ink, the icons on the 42-square keyboard appear as a dialpad-concentric arrangement when the dual hinge clamshell is flipped up vertically and as a QWERTY-centric array when the lid is flipped horizontally. In addition, you can also toggle through multiple arrays showing different sets of keys in each position. These changeling keys enable Samsung to eliminate the dual keypad on phones such as the LG enV3 or Samsung Rant, and create an amazingly flexible keyboard that seems to be reading your mind."

"Many more professionals are telecommuting these days than in the past, whether voluntarily or involuntarily. You can tax deduct your home phone usage, however, only if you have a line dedicated to business. This means that if you're working from home, you need a two-line phone.

Then, once we get our new toys home, we realize that our old PSU just isn't cutting it anymore. The next PSU you are going to want to buy will have to feature great stability and be one that you can depend on, because you won't want to fry your new toys. Today, we have the Ikonik Vulcan 850 watt power supply. The PSU has plenty enough power for the average user and even those that are a little more than average person."

QNAP TS-119 Gigabit NAS Server @ Benchmark Reviews
"If you've ever visited Benchmark Reviews in the past, you've probably noticed that we've tested a large collection of NAS products. At the same time, you might have noticed how many of these products aren't really geared towards home users needing just the basics. That's where the QNAP TS-119 comes in handy. Designed to hold a single SATA drive (HDD or SSD), the TS-119 can deliver all the great features of larger more expensive NAS products. The latest Enterprise-level NAS servers feature iSCSI expansion, RAID redundancy, and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, and surprisingly the TS-119 does these things too, but without the expensive price tag. How can a single-drive NAS offer RAID you ask? In this article Benchmark Reviews takes the QNAP TS-119 through a tough set of performance tests while we outline the Turbo NAS functions and features."

It would seem like more cooler manufacturers would be touting the fact that their coolers are compatible with the new socket. Finally we have one, the Cooler Master Hyper TX3! While it's too early to test this beast on a socket 1156 board, we can still get an idea on how it will perform on current generation processors, in this case the Athlon X2 7850 BE. But enough talk about future CPU's. What about CPU's out now? Well, you're in luck, the Hyper TX3 supports all recent sockets, dating back to K8 CPU's."

Razer Sphex @ Bjorn3D
"With gaming mice constantly being the focus for aim and precision, mouse pads are easily overlooked. After spending $40 to $60 on a gaming mouse, spending an additional $10-$20 on a mouse pad may seem more like a chore than a necessity. Unfortunately, your brand new shiny mouse can only do so much. A high DPI mouse will perform best with a high DPI accepting mouse pad. A cheap cloth pad will work just fine, but the real potential of your mouse will forever be hidden. Gamers know what gamers want, and that is exactly why Razer has released so many good products. Along with their mice, they've also released many mouse pads including cloth pads, hard surface pads, dual sided pads, and now an incredibly thin $15 pad, the Sphex."

Samsung Magnet (SGH-a257) Review @ Digital Trends
"You can literally talk all day on the new Samsung Magnet (SGH-A257), a slab phone with a full QWERTY keyboard available from AT&T. In our informal tests, we got eight and a half hours of talk time, by far the most battery-powered conversation we've ever pulled out of a cell phone. Mind you, extensive talk time is great, but today people do a lot more with a cell phone than just chat. And the Magnet lacks a lot of the basic non-verbal niceties (e.g. 3G connectivity, music playback, etc.) that can be found on Samsung's own Propel, refurb versions of which are available for the same price ($19.95)."

Father's Day Gift Guide @ Digital Trends
"Shopping for men can be tough. Despite what the covers of most magazines would have you believe, guys actually have a variety of interests besides chasing women and sculpting perfect abs.

With that in mind, we've endeavored to put together a buying guide for absolutely every type of male under the sun, from sporting types to pixel-loving geeks. With Father's Day right around the corner, we figure it might help you size up a gift for dear old Dad, and maybe some of the other gentleman in your life in the future.

80-way Thermal Interface Material Performance Test @ BmR
"Prior to our 33-Way Thermal Compound Comparison article published back in March 2008, there had not been another project of its size available online. So when Benchmark Reviews revealed our test results, it was a surprise to find that many overclockers had been ill-informed by marketing hype and misleading enthusiast opinions. Benchmark Reviews later published several other complimentary articles for performance hardware enthusiasts, offering an instructional guide on Thermal Paste Application Methods and testing for the Best CPU Cooler Performance. As the author to both of those articles, I have discovered that the most critical factors pertaining to thermal cooling performance seems to be overlooked. In this massive follow-up article, which was built from entirely new project data taking over one year of research to publish, our collection of test material has grown to include every product we could acquire from the marketplace. Benchmark Reviews has received advice of industry experts, manufacturers, and elite overclockers to bring you this comprehensive 80-Way Thermal Interface Material cooling performance comparison benchmark test."

Not to mention the possibilities of 'WHAT IF' that GPU cooler does not properly work, or gets installed wrong, what then?"

ATI Radeon Driver Re-Write Still Has Work Left
"To those running ATI Radeon graphics cards on Linux, this week has been very important with several key announcements having been made. The TTM memory manager is getting ready for inclusion into the Linux kernel, which finally will allow the open-source ATI driver (and soon the Nouveau driver too for NVIDIA hardware) to have kernel-based GPU memory management. With the memory management work set in the ATI driver via a mix of TTM and GEM, the ATI kernel mode-setting is also getting ready to be released as a staging driver within the Linux 2.6.31 kernel. The announcements this week have not been only about the GPU and Linux kernel, but the Radeon driver rewrite has also been merged to master. As we discussed in yesterday's news post, this Radeon Mesa re-write brings several key improvements immediately and there are still more features to come."

A lot of us have moved onto bigger, badder, faster drives making our old HDD obsolete. Lot of the time there too small to be used for our main HDD's. These extra drives become a back up HDD's where we store all of our downloaded content or store our pictures, and other things. The question comes up, if we want to take some of that information from our personal computers to your friends/families computer? Flash drives work in a pinch and for small files, but what if there's a lot of information you want to show or transfer to other computers? Having to remove/install the back up drive from our computers to other computers gets annoying after a while."

Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR Review @ Digital Trends

Sure, DSLRs have humungous sensors and take high-def videos, but they're relatively affordable, an important consideration in this lovely economy. Nonetheless, point-and-shoot cameras like the F200EXR remain cheaper and have some pretty cool features including the ability to shoot at 12,800 ISO. This particular model also has new sensor technology not found on any camera. Mind you, there are a few caveats that go along with these highlights, but let's see if this new FinePix model should find a way into your pocket."

ASUS EN9400GT GeForce 9400GT HDMI Video Card @ Benchmark Reviews
"Home Theater Personal Computers have been on the rise in recent years but most HTPC cases have a major flaw that makes them inherently tricky to deal with, their size. Some say size doesn't matter, well that may be true for some things in life but when it comes to HTPC's, if it's small it means limited air flow and thus it's cooling capabilities are limited. It also means that you just can't fit a very powerful video card inside of it. Even if you could, a bigger video card means more heat and we all know that heat is the number one enemy of all your computer components. So what if there was such a video card that would not only fit inside of a small form factor HTPC case but one that can perform well enough to meet the demands an HTPC requires all the while keeping it's cool? Sounds impossible? Maybe or maybe not. Here at Benchmark Reviews, you will find a lot of high end video card reviews just like many other review websites but not everyone is looking for a high end video card. Benchmark Reviews tests the ASUS EN9400GT GeForce 9400GT HDMI video card and puts it through a battery of frame rate tests to see just how well the 9400 GT performs and whether or not it can live up to the requirements of living inside of a HTPC case."

Silverstone LC10B-E HTPC Case @ Benchmark Reviews
"Home Theater PCs continue to gain popularity, particularly as more television networks are pushing their content over the web. They're also a great platform for gaming, watching Blu-Ray movies, running a custom DVR, and centralizing media storage. For some of these tasks, a low-power Atom system might be sufficient, but for gaming and processing high definition content, most consumers will want a little more horsepower. That's where a quality HTPC chassis can make a big difference. With room for full-size ATX components, seven hard drives, and five fans, the SilverStone LC10B-E that Benchmark Reviews is covering today should fit the bill."

This is the very first time a quad-core processor with Hyper-Threading was able to knock down the 2P server/enthusiast platform running a pair of true quad-core processors. This is impressive considering just one Intel QX9775 processor runs $1555 shipped at Newegg! That means the $1039 Core i7 975 Extreme edition just beat a system using $3110 worth of processors! This is very significant and it's no wonder Intel recently announced that the QX9775 was being discontinued..."

NVIDIA ION Linux Performance
"Earlier this year NVIDIA introduced the ION, which is their new system platform that pairs a GeForce 9400M GPU with an Intel Atom processor to make it an appealing platform for those desiring a netbook or nettop computer but are interested in a higher level of graphics performance than what is currently possible with Intel's integrated graphics. Products using the NVIDIA ION have been slow to emerge, but in recent weeks, we have begun seeing more devices around, including those from smaller manufacturers. One company that is now selling an ION-powered nettop is ZaReason, which is a Linux-focused hardware company. In this article we have a whole arsenal of Linux-based tests showing off the NVIDIA graphics performance with the Intel Atom processor under Linux."

HIS HD 4890 Fan TURBO @ Bjorn3D
"The HD4890 is AMD’s latest GPU that is aimed at the enthusiast market. It is positioned just above the HD4870 1 GB and its main competitor of course is the Nvidia Geforce GTX275. In this review we are taking a look at the HD4890 from HIS: the HIS HD 4890 Fan TURBO. As the name implies this is not a regular HD4890-card. Instead HIS has overclocked it by default to give us a bit more performance right out of the box."

Sapphire HD4890 Toxic Vapor-X 11150-01-40R @ Benchmark Reviews
"Sapphire has four ranges for most top-end products they offer: standard, Vapor-X, Toxic, and Atomic. While each is different in its own right, for most gamers it is the Toxic design that draws the most attention.

OCZ Technology 6GB PC3-12800 Blade Triple Channel Memory Kit Review @ Bigbruin.com

Ikonik Ra X10 Liquid @ Bjorn3D
"While many of us will not be able to afford a decked out case with liquid cooling built in, some just cant help but haveing the best. This case is certainly unrivaled in one area, rad space. While the Thermaltake Sword M has a built in rad, the X10 Liquid has twin rads, with four 80mm fans on each. This is right inbetween a triple and quad 120mm radiator. As anyone with a triple rad knows, it blows off a lot of heat. These rads should be the same, and may even have an advantage. According to Ikonik these rads are of hihger quality, similar to what is used on car radiators."

I-Rocks IR-4610 Four Port USB 2.0 Hub Review @ Tweaknews
"With so many gadgets using USB these days, just about everyone can benefit from a product like this. It's an inexpensive, practical, and stylish way to add an extra four USB ports to any system. The top loading port is useful for quickly attaching a flash drive or mp3 player, and the remaining three ports are spaced far enough apart that plugging in devices next to each other shouldn't result in a tight squeeze."

Recycled PC: Old Computers with a New Purpose @ Benchmark Review
"Frequently, we find that new technological breakthroughs make old hardware that was just fine seem quaint. Be it a race toward higher clock speeds, faster front side buses, multiple cores, etc, computers become disused and replaced. Green attitudes have dissuaded people from tossing out components that are, for all intents and purposes, quite harmful to the environment. Moreover, current operating systems are becoming more power hungry let alone the software that runs on them. What's interesting about these computers is that in many cases they're perfectly useable. Here at Benchmark Reviews, we'll provide our list of uses for recycled computers."

Priced at $249, the PSP Go will arrive in stores on October 1st, 2009 along with a new PSP version of the very popular Gran Turismo.

Asus Maximus II Gene @ Bjorn3D
"Since the introduction of Intel's new Core i7 CPU's, we were all amazed at its performance it offered us. At the same time we were all shocked at the cost it would cost us to upgrade to this newer standard, ranging anywhere from 800-1200 USD at a minimum. With the cost of this new CPU standard in mind, lot of people decided to hold on to there Intel socket 775 platforms, which still proven to be a good solid platform for gaming and anything we saw fit for the use of our computers with out the large expense of moving to a entirely new CPU socket and motherboards, including memory."

10 Most Influential Tech Products @ Digital Trends
"Before even discussing the most influential, important developments of the technology age, the simple transistor must claim its rank near the top. Or, more accurately, the incredible shrink-ability of said transistor. In 1947, the world's first working example of a transistor, a crude-looking assembly seemingly made up of various bits of wire, assorted spare parts, ample doses of solder, and what looks like an ancient Indian arrowhead, sprang to life in a nondescript room at Bell Labs' Murray Hill, New Jersey facility. That transistor would evolve - and shrink - quite substantially over the course of the next three decades, and by 1979, Intel engineers had figured a way to incorporate an astounding 29,000 of them into its landmark 8088 processor. But that number positively pales in comparison with today's Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, which features 10,000 times as many (291 million), and Intel's upcoming eight-core processors, which will sport an astounding 2.3 billion."

AMD Athlon II X2 250 AM3 Processor @ Benchmark Reviews
"Yesterday at Computex, AMD took the wraps off of two highly anticipated processors: the Athlon II X2 250 and the Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition. Both are based on AMD's 45nm SOI process with the key difference being the amount of L3 cache. The Phenom II X2 550, codenamed Callisto, gets the full 6 MB cache of the Phenom II family and will serve as AMD's new flagship dual-core processor. The Athlon II X2 250, on the other hand, is based on the new native dual-core Regor die that omits L3 cache completely and targets the mainstream segment. Benchmark Reviews was fortunate to receive samples of both processors. Yesterday we covered the Phenom II X2 550 and today we bring you the Athlon II X2 250 ADX250OGQBOX."

Olympus E-620 Review @ Digital Trends
"Yes, there are DSLRs available from companies other than Canon and Nikon. But give the devils their due, since they account for over 75 percent of the approximately 3 million DLSRs sold annually. While the top two continue to cram things like HD video in their new models, competitors like Olympus, Pentax and Sony introduce cameras for people who just want to shoot high-quality stills. Amazingly, these creatures still exist! A new model designed for this crew is the new E-620, a lightweight, mid-range 12.3-megapixel DSLR that pulls some very cool tricks. Let's see if it holds it own with the big boys."

SilverStone Element 850w @ Bjorn3D
"As graphics cards keep on getting more powerful, they also require more power. It was not that long ago when a 400 watt PSU would run the latest high end hardware without breaking a sweat, now times are a bit different. Idealy you want at least a 500 watt powersupply, and more around 850 watts if you are running a high end system. SilverStone has introduced another PSU that falls right in this high end bracket, the Element 850watt PSU."

NZXT Rogue Small Form Factor Gaming Chassis Review @ Tweaknews
"NZXT's entry into the SFF market can certainly be summed up as a decent first attempt. I give the company points for coming up with a unique design that deviates away from the standard cookie cutter type stuff currently available on the market. Overall highlights to look out for are the beautiful brushed aluminum bezel and side panels, embedded chrome lock, five 120mm stock fan mounts for good air circulation and support for full sized PSU's."

AMD Athlon II X2 250 and Phenom II X2 550 Processors @ Legit Reviews
"Today, AMD announced two new exciting 45nm dual-core processors that are sure to impress any enthusiast. The overclocking results alone were insane and this was just with moderate air cooling, so who knows what will happen when the temperatures go lower and more voltage is put to these processors. For the tuner/enthusiast these processors should give hours of enjoyment as they are easy overclockers and the choice of motherboards for them are plentiful. The AMD Athlon II X2 250 and AMD Phenom II X2 550 are clock-for-clock slower than the Intel Core 2 Duo E8500, but keep in mind that the E8500 still retails for $189 on the market today. You can easily build a core system for less than that if you really looked around."

Nearly three years have passed and today we have moved on to look at the Super Talent MasterDrive OX Serial ATA 2.0 Solid State Drive. These Super Talent SSDs are MLC NAND Flash based and come in sizes down to 16GB, which leads to prices lower than many other SSDs on the market, but how do they perform?"

Thermaltake Speedo Advance Package Case @ Benchmark Reviews
"Think excitement - Think Spedo! At least that's Thermaltakes' spin on it. But what's in a name anyway? Well, a lot less than what's packed inside this Spedo... Spedo Advance Package gaming chassis that is. Name aside this case at first glance appears to have a lot going for it. It has a laundry list that would rival St. Nicks naughty/nice list in length, items such as Advanced Thermal Chambers (A.T.C. 3) and Cable Routing Management (C.R.M. 3). Is all this stuff needed or is this a gimmick? Benchmark Reviews will take a closer look at the outwardly impressive Spedo Advanced Package full tower case (model VI90001W2Z) and see if this is eye candy or the real deal. My hopes are high as this is really the first case that I've reviewed that has many of missing elements on my cons list of previous chassis reviews."
