Microsoft SideWinder Mouse

Gaming related products are booming these days. Microsoft is not a newbie when it comes to designing and manufacturing game controllers so how did their latest gaming mouse match up?

:.Vantec NBA-100U 5.1 Channel USB Audio Adapter @ bigbruin
The key selling point of the Vantec NBA-100U is that you can add 5.1 channel stereo surround sound to just about any computer with a USB connection. While it might not be a good solution for a desktop computer, especially since most have integrated 5.1 channel audio these days, it is a great investment for any laptop user looking for an audio upgrade.

.:Cases & Cooling

:.Ultra m998 Mid Tower Case @ Pro-Clockers
During the review process, I found little middling things here and there that can be improved on, but none of them rate enough to knock it off its throne as the best case I've ever reviewed.

:.4-way Thermal Interface Material Roundup @ tweaktown
Recently, we have been seeing an influx of nonmetallic materials hitting the market and they are all claiming to be able to beat the king. Our recent review of the MX-2 product from Arctic Cooling showed that there was more than just a little truth in these claims. The MX-2 compound is completely non-conductive material and was able to keep a processor cooler than the Arctic Silver 5 compound used as a comparative product. Today we have two more products to add to the list of those who want your TIM dollars, A.I. Technologies and Tuniq (a subsidiary of Sunbeam).

:.Zalman Z-Machine GT1000 High End Gaming Enclosure @ Tweaknews
With the introduction of the Z-Machine GT1000 chassis, Zalman has produced a worthy successor to their earlier Fatal1ty offering. I liked the Fatal1ty a lot; I like the Z-Machine a lot more. The GT1000 is better looking, easier to work in, has more hard drive space and comes in two color options. Cooling performance is just as good, if not better, than the original and the drive mounting solutions are both simple and elegantly executed.

:.Cooler Master CM690 @ Modders-Inc
Cooler Master recently brought the CM 690 to the market which offers some great features that a lot of higher end cases don't have. The CM 690 can take up to seven 120mm case fans, and offers a nice sleek looking exterior.


:.Swiftech Apogee Ultimate Liquid Cooling Kit @ motherboards
This system uses a self-powered Apogee drive water-block combined with a triple radiator, three fans and dual Stealth VGA coolers. This was done in order to make one bad ass liquid cooled super system based on NVIDIA?s SLI platform. As you can see from the results we were able to overclock our 3.0GHz QuadCore X6850 to 4.0GHz without any warranty voiding mods or outlandish voltage increases.

:.Intel X48 Express & 1600MHz FSB Processor Details @ techarp
We had earlier reported that it will soon be superseded by the Intel X48 Express chipset. Now, we have information that the Intel X48 Express chipset is slated to be launched sometime in mid-January, 2008.

:.Razer Lachesis @ techPowerUp
The Razer Lachesis is the first mouse to feature a third generation laser sensor which operates at a maximum of 4000 DPI. The new technology looks good on paper, but how does it perform in real world scenarios. In this review we will put this new technology to the test and see if it lives up to the expectations.

:.Logitech G15 2007 @ benchmarkreviews
Not many peripheral products can qualify as true gaming keyboards; especially since the majority of these products just simply add bold colors or large keys. Logitech takes the process more seriously, and the new and improved G15 (Revision 2 aka 2007) Programmable LCD Gaming Keyboard offers hardcore gamers something to take them to the next level.

.:Motherboards & Memory

:.GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS4 @ Virtual-Hideout
Currently, Gigabyte is the leader in all solid capacitor motherboards. They also use twice as many Phase Power components. So what does this all mean? Well, how about a motherboard that is more efficient and runs almost twice as cool as standard motherboards using older technology? The Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4 is that motherboard, with all the new solid state hardware - not to mention an impressive heatpipe cooling system incorporating a giant copper back plate for that additional cooling.

.:Power Supply

:.Antec TruePower Quattro 1000 watt @ hi-techreviews
We have been quite fortunate to review numerous Antec cases and power supplies in the past, so we were very excited when the TruePower Quattro 1000-watt power supply arrived at our door for testing. After we ran it through our normal battery of tests, we were impressed by its ability to maintain near perfect voltage regulation even during the grueling stress tests.

.:Storage

:.QNAP TS-109 Pro All-in-one NAS Server @ ThinkComputers
ThinkComputers takes a look at the TS109 NAS server, a SATA hard drive enclosure with a network port, two USB host ports, and even an eSATA host port. This little guy runs Linux, too.

:.Synology Disk Station DS207 NAS @ TechwareLabs
If you need additional storage which is accessible on your network then Snyology has a product to meet your needs and then some. The DS207 is a 2 bay NAS device which comes packed with features and at a price which you can live with. Our resident technology guru Jason takes a look at the DS207 and gives you the details on the setup and use of this device. Read our review to see if the DS207 is what your looking for.

:.Seagate 1TB Family of Drives @ Bjorn3D
Because we were fortunate enough to receive both the Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200.11, aimed at the mainstream consumer market and the Seagate Barracuda 1TB ES.2, designed more for enterprise networking solutions; Scott and I will split this review into two separate parts. Part 1 will feature the Barracuda 7200.11 and Part 2 will concentrate on the Barracuda ES.2.

:.Asus PG221 LCD Screen @ Rbmods
We got a sample of Asus PG221 LCD screen that we are going to share our thoughts about it tonight. The LCD comes with a subwoofer, yes I said a subwoofer and a nice pair or speakers.

:.Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT @ Legit Reviews
For now, we have to give a thumbs up to the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT and welcome it with open arms to the GeForce 8800 series. This card should be a big hit this holiday season as it offers serious performance at a mainstream price tag that most gamers can afford. If you can't afford it however, this card is worth saving up for...

:.Visiontek 2600 XT QUAD 1GB @ driverheaven
What .... another 2600 review? Well before you close the window, this is no ordinary 2600XT, Visiontek's new "Quad" 2600XT is basically two cards in crossfire, slapped together with a mighty 1 GB of ram! Hardware video acceleration and the ability to power four 2560x1600 monitors certainly deserves some attention, right?

:.20inch LCD Comparison: H20 20.1 & Samsung 204B @ Madshrimps
20.1inch TFT Display with 1600x1200 resolution for less than $190, the H20 provides both DVI and VGA connectors, built in power and 3-watt speaker. High resolutions LCD display in traditional/classic format is aimed at more serious users. Let's see how this inexpensive unit stands up to the trusted Samsung 204B.
