CrazyPC LED Review
The LED is unfortunatly not as bright as I expected. It eaisly lights up a small-form factor ATX case, but you would probably need 2 or 3 of these LED's to fill a mid-to-full tower case. I would say, if you had a bigger case, get a green cold cathode instead, because these LED's are the same price as the green ones on sale at CrazyPC.

Belkin 32MB USB Flash Drive Review
Belkin currently offers their USB flash drives in four different capacities - 16MB, 32MB, 64MB and 128MB - all of which can work with up to USB 1.1 speeds. This means they'll work with your USB 2.0 controller, but you won't be able to take advantage of the USB 2.0 speeds. Other manufacturers are offering drives up to 1GB in capacity, and some may even offer higher capacity ones. Belkin should do well to note this - perhaps not for this particular line of USB flash drives, but instead for a potential line of USB 2.0 flash drives, as the potential for increased speed with USB 2.0 will go well with large capacities such as 512MB or greater.

Crucial Compact Flash card reader
A quick look at a new product from Crucial, right here on Club Overclocker! A Compact Flash (Type I & II) card reader. "Card readers have become increasingly popular since the explosion of flash memory products. Digital photographers no longer need to purchase bulky and expensive A/C adapters to power their cameras while they download images from their camera." It's a quick read and if you have any Compact Flash devices then I think its definitely worth checking out.

Adaptec Ultra Wireless Review
Here's my predicament, I just bought a new house and I want to network the living room, bedrooms and garage. Sure, I could spend several days and drill holes in the floor and walls and install LAN cables and run the bundle out to the garage where the server will be kept. However, this is a brand new house and the last thing I want to do is pull up the carpet and drill holes and such. My only other option is to go wireless. With Adaptec's Ultra Wireless gear in hand, I went to work setting up a new wireless network.
