Vantec Stealth 420W PSU Review
Today I'll be running the Vantec Stealth 420W PSU through the tests. Its available in 3 different sizes with the 420W being the smallest and the 520W being the largest. The housing of this PSU is made of aluminum and painted black has 3 - 80mm fans to keep this bad boy cool.

Logitech Cordless Optical Trackman
Computers users generally fall into two categories; either you are a Mouse user or a Trackball user. If you have gone the way of Trackballs, mice just do not work for you. On the other hand, if you’re a mouser, using a trackball is about as foreign and impractical as imaginable. Over the years, companies such as Kensington, Microsoft, and Logitech have released Trackballs with features such as higher-accuracy, greater comfort, multimedia buttons, and even cordless ones. Today, we look at Logitech’s latest incarnation – the Cordless Optical Trackman.

SMC 22Mbps Wireless Broadband Router Review
Even though home networking is still young as a widespread practice, more mature products have been hitting the shelves in an effort to make internet sharing easier. Routers have become much easier to set up and configure, and there have even been wireless access points to help keep the cable clutter to a minimum. In our latest review, we take a look at SMCs attempt in combining these two bits of networking technology into one base unit. Is the wireless router a home run for the wire-free household, or will it just leave you crying ‘Foul Ball’?

Asus Geforce 4 Ti4400 V8440 Review
Although production has been discontinued, the Ti4400 can be readily found at a variety of vendors. With performance between that of the Ti4600 and the Ti4200, and a price that reflects that, is a Ti4400 still worth consideration?

"They average between 190$ - 210$, and although they're about 60$ more expensive than most Ti4200s, they are only about 40$ cheaper than Ti4600s. Six months ago, they were 100$ cheaper, and back then, they would have been a great deal, but today, I'm afraid not. Performance matches the Ti4600 when overclocked, but most Ti4200s can also be overclocked to those speeds, and some of the latest ones also support AGP8x."

DiskOnKey Pro
The Diskonkey Pro is a very small 16mb storage device that plugs into your USB port. It is designed to be very mobile and easy to use. It is USB Version 2.0 compliant, so if you have USB 2.0 you will enjoy very fast file transfers onto this product. But even if you don’t have USB 2.0 it also works with any other USB port still with fast transfers. This is a very convenient; it requires no drivers for the latest operating systems and will easily work between Windows and Macs. There is also a 32-bit ARM7 CPU in this tiny device, which is what allows this device to be driverless and run additional applications like security, automatic boot features and automatic logon, which you can download from their website.

The Log Cabin PC
I wired a red super-bright LED inside the chimney. This chimney is hooked to my HD activity light, in the hopes that it will flicker like a fire. The exhaust from the PSU is ducted out the chimney via a modified funnel attached under said chimney. I also attached some dark-green tulle to the chimney. This tulle waves in the PSU exhaust and really catches the HD light flicker.

Area51 Mods Gameboy Advance Afterburner Installation Service Review
Above is my shiny new Platinum GameBoy Advance before its trip to As you can see (or not see) on the screen, I am playing one of my favorite games, Super Mario Kart. You can barely see it. This isn't a trick of the camera either, that is exactly how you would see the image on screen in a darkened area. Only the biggest and brightest light will help you out when you are gaming on the go. Sure, outside in daylight is the best time to play, but we all know that we want to play inside most of the time (I especially like to play in bed).
