Cremax MB018 Multi Bay Back Plane Module Review
Inside the Cremax MB018 Multi Bay Back Plane Module is a nice view of the backplane interface. There are four 68-pin U3W-SCSI connectors which connect directly to each inserted compatible SCSI drive. On the left and right hand sides of the MB018 are adjustable guide rails which assist with installing each drive as well as provide anti-shock support. For this review, I'll be utilizing 4 x IBM Ultrastar 9GB SCSI drives for testing. Each drive is secured to an individual carrier cage using the included 6-32 screws.

Samsung ML-1750 Laser Printer
Color inkjet is all fine and dandy, but when you need to print off web purchase receipts, lost-kitten flyers, resumes, and invoices, only a laser printer will get the job done right, quickly, and professionally. There are thousands of brands and models out there, but thankfully Samsung introduced a low-cost, small footprint, and zippy machine designed for today’s SOHO workplaces... Here’s a snip:

“Without a doubt, this laser printer is dedicated to a home-office or small-business role. The main selling points; 17ppm printing speed, 8MB of printer memory, USB 2.0 and Parallel connectivity, 250-sheet cassette, 166-MHz RISC processor, 1200dpi class resolution, and full PCL6 compliance. Best of all, in-box, the ML-1750 is compatible with 17 flavors of operating systems ranging from Mac OS to Unix, PC to Linux. Introduced at the recent CeBIT 2003 show, Samsung was proud the tote the ML-1750 as the smallest 17ppm printer in the world!”

Thermaltake Volcano9 Coolmod Review
You may have noticed an enormous amount of wires coming off this unit in the contents pic. Well there are a lot of wires but you don't have to use them all. You can use the unit with a rheostat that allows you to trim the voltage at the turn of a small knob or allow heat to control the speed of the fan. It also has 4 pair of wires coming off the Coolmod grill. The grill is clear acrylic and has 4 LEDs, 2 blue and 2 red. The two pair of wires that run from the blue LEDs located at the top and bottom of the grill connect to your motherboard power indicator header. The other two pair of wires running from the side mounted red LEDs connect to your motherboards HDD indicator header. The end result is quite nice looking; giving you a nice cool blue look while idling and flashes of red from hard drive activity give it an eerie purplish glow. I can't imagine there are too many people out there that won't enjoy it's great effects and colors

MMGear Multi-Channel Headphones
All this high level, high volume sound sure sounds good when you’re all alone in the house or enjoying it during the day. But what can you do to fully surround yourself with sound if loud noise from the speakers is unacceptable? For years the only answer was stereo headphones. But as with all headphones you would only hear two channels left and right. You would not be able to hear if a certain sound was coming from the front left, front right rear left or rear right. So the movie or gaming experience was not the same, until now enter MM Gear’s MCH-MMS100-B Real 3D Sound headphones.

Cooler Master ATC 220B Aluminum Case
OCAddiction takes a look at the Cooler Master ATC 220B Aluminum Case today. Cooler Master is renowned for making some of the best looking and highest quality aluminum cases and the 220B looks to follow that tradition and even has a custom LED logo built into the glass door. Let’s take a look.

“Cooler Master cases are a work of art. They have long been the Ferrari of cases, and the ATC 220B series has the 'look' to be one of the standouts. Cooler Master took the ATC 210B and added a back-lit etch to the front door, and BAM! instant AHHHH!! factor. Before we get too far into the goods, ATC stands for Active Thermal Convection. Cooler Master designs their ATC series cases with the mindset that the aluminum case itself is acting as a heatsink. With the thought being that an aluminum enclosure will dissipate internal heat quicker than a comparable steel case.”
