Skyhawk Matrix PSR-5605SL-W
Jeez, we’re starting to sound like a broken record now, but “In another web-first exclusive”, we present you with Sky Hawk’s latest killer pre-modded case, the Matrix PSR-5605SL-W. Its most evident ‘power-feature’ (pun intended), is the motorized front-panel door. Yes folks, you too can have your own motorized guillotine – for fingers, CD-ROM drives, LiveDrive cables, etc. Snippage:

“We have already reviewed a number of aluminum cases from Sky Hawk LLC, most with flashing LCD displays, cycling bubble lights, and an assortment of other unique features. However, for all their uniqueness, never did they really have a feature that stood out enough to make them stand out from the crowd. Well, the other shoe dropped - enter the Matrix with its motorized door! Just in time for the movie with the same name, this case is not just another remake or bad sequel."

Power Down Protector
The PowerDownProtector works flawlessly, but I don't really think it is a necessary product. If you are like me and just like to have cool gadgets, its worth buying and may in fact lengthen the life of your processor (and graphics card if you choose to connect it). What would be nice though, is to have a similar, more advanced unit, one that can connect to a rheobus and keep all case fans on as well as the CPU and Graphics card fan for X amount of time.

Belkin Nostromo n45 Gamepad
While no one can dispute the power of the keyboard and mouse combination when it comes to FPSs, sometimes, an alternative is needed for other types of games, especially sports games. Games such as Tony Hawk 3 will be nearly unplayable with just a keyboard and/or mouse, and games like NHL 2003 just won't be as enjoyable. Additionally, for those of you (like me) who enjoy playing old console games via emulators like ZSNES, a keyboard just won't cut it. The ideal control option for these games would be a gamepad. There are many gamepads out on the market for the PC now, from basic models to wireless ones with many features. But the main goals of a gamepad remain the same: It must be comfortable and easy to use. Today, we take a look at the Belkin n45 gamepad - a controller with dual analog sticks and a control layout similar to that of a playstation dual shock 2 controller
