hardware-test.dk: Review of Bluetake USB Dongle - ( Wireless Network )

Quote, Itís not the fastest network-product on the market, but it uses a new exciting technology. Bluetakeís wireless network-products are developed by Ericsson, Intel, 3Com, Nokia, Toshiba and other well-known companies in this business. The technology is based on a short radio-signal that can be used in many connections which makes the synchronization and communication simpler in connection with other products."

 

hardwarepub.com: Chieftec Scorpio TX-10BLD Entry Level Server Chassis

Quote, "Overall, this case is quite the bargain. It is sturdy, well built, and has a lot of modding potential. The only problem is the lack of a removable motherboard tray, but the case is large enough that this doesn't really matter. It's professional paint finish and its panoply of unique features such as the hard drive cages and drive rails make installation easy and fast."

 

phlux.co.uk: Creative Inspire 5300 5.1 Review

Quote, "When going through my 12-gigabyte collection of legal MP3s, I found that the main factor making these speakers nice to listen to was my sound card, The Philips Acoustic Edge, which has "QMSS" (basically, each instrument in a 2-channel sound comes out a different speaker). The speakers had some scratchiness on high notes but its low notes were right on target at regular listening volumes. Nonetheless, if you're getting speakers to play music, and you want good sound, these are not your speakers. If you're a casual listener like myself, go for it."

 

hardwareluxx.com: Geforce 4 MX440 Roundup

Quote, "Is the Geforce 4 MX440 nothing for gamers ? You can read this in magazines and in every online publication, so we tried to find out, if the DirectX7 cards are really not proved for good gaming. The following cards were tested: Leadtek Winfast A170T, Abit Siluro Geforce 4 MX440, Creative Geforce 4 MX440. In the benchmarks, they had to show itīs performance against the cards the gamers desire : A Radeon 8500, a Geforce 4 Ti4600 and a Geforce 3 Ti500 had to show the gap of the Geforce 4 MX-cards to the luxurious versions."

Quote, "This detailed article compares the latest offerings from IBM, Maxtor and Western Digital. Performance is considered both by themselves and in RAID 0, as well as temperature and other factors."

 

amdmb.com: Water Cooling Equipment and Performance Guide - Pumps

Quote, "What does this mean to me? Many vendors and water cooling users support the use of ridiculously powerful pumps for water cooling systems. They do not recognize (or at least donít openly acknowledge) that virtually all the power consumed by the pump adds heat to the fluid that must be eliminated by the radiator (or other means). It wonít be until our discussion covers fluid properties, radiators, and water blocks that we see the full impact of this statement. For the time being, Iím merely planting a seed of thought. The seed wonít bear fruit until weíve covered those remaining topics. Until then, keep in mind that big pumps can be counter-productive."

 

hardwareluxx.com: Soyo KT333 Dragon Ultra tested

Quote, "With Onboard-LAN, a good sound and ATA/133 Raid, a normal mainboard is fully featured. Not for Soyo. They put more features on this board as we ever saw on a mainboard, but not only onboard components but also good overclocking features. Of course, with the new KT333 chipset, you might also expect a great performance - but just read our review, we also had some problems with the board." In German.

teccentral.de: Asus V8460 Ultra Review (Geforce 4 Ti 4600)

Quote, "We have reviewed the new Asus V8460 Ultra TD. In the comparison with the Geforce 3 Ti 500, the Geforce Ti4600 had to prove on one of the fastest test systems  itself. " Translated from German at babelfish.

 

phlux.co.uk: Laserbay Review

Quote, "Firstly, the LaserBay is only available in red or blue at the moment, but this may change in the near future, I'm not certain. Another bad point is that the inner casing is a little too flimsy for my liking. It's fine for just having inside your PC, but maybe if you're taking it in your car to the nearest LAN party it could get damaged."

 

phlux.co.uk: Akasa PaxMate Review

Quote, "There you go. Yes this stuff worked! My PC really annoyed me most of the time before since I have some of the loudest computer fans available installed in it (YS-Tech 120mm 135CFM blowhole and suckhole, and a 60mm Delta (which is drowned by the others). It didn't silence my PC quite obviously, that would just be silly. What it did do however, was cut off the edge. It 'dampened' out the high-pitched sounds, which are what made my system sound so prominent, and left a nice hum. Imagine how a loud background hum is different to someone in the next room playing music really loud."
 

phlux.co.uk: Hardware MP3 Player Article

Quote, "I've said a lot about the small height of this case already, but not the other dimensions, so here goes. It's a aluminium box from Maplin (the UK equivalent to Radio Shack) that looks a little like the Lian-Li range of aluminium PC cases. The dimensions are 398x253x51mm. As you can see, this isn't very big in terms of depth and especially height. I chose this case because of it's sheer good looks and the fact that it should fit nicely with any hi-fi system. If anyone wants the Maplin stock code it's KR57M."
