Sungale Your Bluetooth Link! Car Kit
The Sungale Your Bluetooth Link! Car Kit could be just the thing for anyone looking for a low cost way to add the convenience and safety of a Bluetooth speaker phone to their car. From the time the box was opened, it was only a matter of minutes before I was making calls, and unlike many I even bothered to read (the important parts of) the manual.

Spire Swirl Computer Case Review
Overall I have to say that I am very impressed. This case has all the features others in its price range do as well as several that even some high price cases do not. The overall cooling was also admirable. While the styling of the case is fairly utilitarian there is beauty in its simplicity, its not over bright front LEDs should also mean that it would be right at home anywhere in your home or office.
Speed-Link Medusa 5.1 Home Edition (SL-8796) Headset Review
This review is going to be taking a look at Speed-Link's top of the line headset, the Medusa 5.1 Home Edition. I was intrigued by the surround sound and the overall popularity of the entire Medusa 5.1 series on computer and gaming forums. Could a headset deliver 5.1 surround? Is it better than a stereo headset? Let's find out!
SilverStone MS04 IDE Hard Drive Enclosure Review
There are many external hard drive enclosures out there, but none quite as pretty as the SilverStone MS04. Sure, to some people looks aren't everything, but to people like me, well, they're definitely important. I mean, if there are a bunch of similar products that you assume all work about equally well, wouldn't you just pick the one that's most visually appealing to you?
Silverstone GD01MX Home Thetaer PC Case
I've been on a never-ending quest for the Ultimate Home Theater PC for many years. I seek the One Case to rule them all (as my HTPC server), and in darkness bind them (thru wireless ethernet). I have suffered through horribly-conceived steel boxes and converted behemoth desktop cases, and still haven't been able to find the one True Case. HTPC cases have increased in popularity, so there are many manufacturers creating the cases, but that means that the percentage of QUALITY cases are going down, because the market is becoming flooded with mediocre cases aimed at the home theater enthusiast.
Silverstone is one of the companies that consistently produces innovative and quality cases for the home theater and PC enthusiast. Their products have evolved with the market, so they now include similar features that an OEM HTPC includes, and make the installation easy. Silverstone has introduced their new Grandia series HTPC cases, following on the success of their popular Lascala enclosures.
Seagate 750GB SATA2 RAID Review
Are you looking for better performance from your computer? Does it already have all the latest in cutting edge equipment? If so, you may think that getting more performance would be not possible. You must now be thinking how it could be possible. The answer may be a lot simpler than you thought, and that answer is RAID. While seemingly new for many people, RAID has indeed been around for a long time; as far back as when the first SCSI drives released in the 1980s, which in fact helped to pioneer RAID. What is RAID you ask? That is a very good question as most people are usually a bit daunted by RAID. But it is not that scary when you get down to it.
Sapphire X1950 GT Crossfire
Any delay in getting a scheduled product out to market is a potentially big problem for the manufacturer, not only in terms of missed revenues but also with respect to perceived lack of execution of the product development team. Regardless of what the issues are, whether it is an issue with the silicon or whether there are some other glitches that show up as low yields or even if it concerns merely the managing of the back-end, that is potential thermal runaway in the end it is irrelevant. What remains is the delay and another delay and after the third one, the product is officially branded as vaporware.
The best countermeasure in this scenario is the release of products that capture the masses and offer them value that could even sway the most conservative non-upgrader to consider taking the plunge into a world of in this case better graphics for a lower price than ever.

Sapphire Radeon X1950GT Testing 256MB vs. 512MB memory
When we had a look at the Palit Radeon X1950GT 512MB the other week, we noticed that at the higher resolutions, it would put up more of a fight against the higher clocked 256MB graphics cards, such as the Radeon X1950PRO and GeForce 7900GS.
With the new Sapphire Radeon X1950GT 256MB in hand, it was clear what we wanted to find out - does the extra memory really come in handy? We saw that the cut back to 320MB on the GeForce 8800GTS had quite the impact on performance and it often mentioned that 512MB can be handy on the right card as long as it had the GPU power to back it up.
