Crucial 6 in 1 memory card reader
The 6-in-1 Memory card reader is available in two different versions; a portable and a standalone. For this review, we're focusing on the standalone product. The Standalone comes in a sleek silver plastic casing (as pictured). There are 4 slots on the front of the device: 1 for Compact Flash/IBM Microdrives, 1 for SD/MMC cards, 1 for Memory Stick cards, and 1 for Smart Media Cards.

ATI Radeon 9800 PRO Review
Today ATI begins releasing it new line of refresh products, including the new high end Radeon 9800 PRO.Beyond3D has had the opportunity to put a Radeon 9800 PRO through it paces and, as usual, we try and explore every nook this board has. We compare it against Radeon 9700 PRO and also clock the 9800 PRO down to Radeon 9700 PRO speeds to see if there are any pipeline improvements beyond the clock speed increase.

"The Hierarchical Z-Buffer scheme ATI employs has been known to increase the rendering speed and efficiency significantly, yet it was disabled when certain stencil operations were carried out in an application, thus lowering the performance. R350's Hierarchical Z-Buffer has been altered to take this into account and should provide a faster stencils rendering path - important for titles such as DoomIII."

Logitech Z-680 5.1 Speakers Review
Well I started it out with the effect on Stereo with the PCs. I found no major audible difference between the two computers but it was obvious that the nForce 2 sounded better. Man does that sax sound good on Dave Mathew’s “So Much to Say!” I was absolutely floored at the response at all frequencies. As I mentioned before the sub can rumble deep down into the 20Hz range without losing an unacceptable amount of SPL.

The imaging of this set in stereo was phenomenal! While jamming to “Money” by Pink Floyd I could almost see Dick playing percussion in the middle while David was gracefully floating his vocals in front of him with Rich tapping the keyboard off to the right. Having these speakers set up correctly is a must in Stereo as the imaging is very precise but like any high end audio speaker, the results are well worth it. Chopin made me take a deep breath and kick back and relax. It was as if I was in the hall
