Acrylic cases are nothing new. As a matter of fact, they're been around even before VH started out. Where case windows only let you see a certain portion of your valuable hardwares, acrylic cases are totally transparent so you can see everything inside. These cases also helps in educational and display purposes. There're not many companies out there making them and most, if not all of them are based in the States or Canada but if the recent Comdex is any indication, be sure to see more and more variations of the acrylic case from the Taiwanese folks! And one of them is BeanTech International. BeanTech is a relatively new company, formed only recently but have grown into one of the leading manufacturers of mobile racks in Taiwan. They also manufacture their own line of aluminium cases and recently launched their acrylic case line. And the BT84 is one of the prototypes that we're looking at today
After spending about a week with this motherboard, I have finally published my written words on what I found. The K7N2-L is Micro Star International's nForce-2 (SPP) motherboard. While the original nForce chipset did not receive the fanfare nVidia was looking for, that didn't stop them from trying again with a fresh approach. Being less expensive than the previous boards and offering features very comparable with other leading chipsets, the nForce-2 takes aim at both the Enthusiast and OEM markets.

In this review, the [H]ardOCP's RatPadz, PCXMods' X-Trac, M3's Precise Mousing Surface, and a common mouse pad are all put to the test - for optical and ball mice
Ok, You've probably read a review or two of the Vantec Nexus Multifunction panel. But have you read it Extension Style? While some of the great features of course will be shown, the major downfall will be taken care of here. Can we say Mod? Well, I guess so. But anyone can handle a can of spray paint? See how the review and the painting comes out...
A few months ago we looked at one of Matrix Orbital's LCDs; the LK202-25. We were impressed by its ease of use, looks, and performance. Today, we look at yet another display by Matrix Orbital. This time, it's the big, beautiful VK204-25 Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD). VFDs have a few distinct advantages over LCDs. They are brighter, much more legible, clearer, and more responsive over a wide range of temperatures. They also have a wider viewing range than LCDs.
