FireLite 60 GB Portable Hard Disk from SmartDisk
Have you ever found yourself at a LAN and you had to un-install games or software from your hard disk just to make enough room to install another game? What about the time you lugged your computer to your friend’s place just to transfer some data? Wouldn’t it be much easier just to lug around a small Hard Drive, one that is easy to connect and that offers great transfer speed? Well, this is what SmartDisk is offering us with their FireLite series of Hard Disk. We had the opportunity to test out this nice little device recently so here’s our review

Samsung 191N LCD Review
Another commendable trait would be the viewing angle. Why? Because it’s massive! We all know what usually happens with some LCD’s: you step out of the viewing angle and instead of a picture you see a bright ghostly, at times negative, outline of what is on the screen. This is not the case for this monitor. I found you could look at it from almost a perpendicular angle, and you could still see what you would normally see. I suppose a viewing angle of 170° isn’t exactly practical, or needed, but it sure is better than having an undersized viewing angle.

Antec True550 550wattPSU Review
“An informative little box, well built to hold the weight of the unit itself. In fact it’s so well built; I’d be willing to bet the empty box could hold my entire weight. Yup, I was right; all 155 pounds of me are easily supported. This may not be one of the main points you’re looking for in a PSU, but still, it’s nice to know.

Here you see the contents of the package in one piece and nicely wrapped. The contents consist of a power cord, mounting screws, instruction booklet and the unit itself. Please be sure to use the cord provided with the power supply. I noticed the cord supplied was slightly thicker than the one used by my test bed. Upon examination I noticed that the cord was labeled (13A-125V). The cord I was about to use was only (10A-125V). You may not think that makes much of a difference, but it is enough to void your warranty. Who am I kidding? We’re modders, a warranty doesn’t last more than a day or so in my house anyway.”
