Keyspan USB2+FireWire PCI card
Have an older Mac or PC with USB 1.1 ports, and you want to spruce it up with USB 2.0 and FireWire connectivity options? How about adding the elusive USB 2.0 to your PowerMac G4 or Beige G3? Thanks to Keyspan, experts at dongles and cable converters, they released a USB2+FireWire Mac/PC PCI card which performs well and delivers on their renowned quality. In this review, we pit a 2GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive on the PowerMac and show that USB 2.0 can be achieved with Mac OS X - a tall feat indeed.

Pen Drive Plus 2.0 2GB
PenDriveUSA is a little known firm that does what few other Flash drive firms do – make their own hardware. As with the hundreds of other Flash drive companies out there, only a handful actually make and hold patents to their technology. PenDriveUSA is one of these rare firms, and they specialize in a number of interesting Flash drives. The review item in question today is their flagship product - a Pen Drive Plus 2.0 2GB. This drive boasts 2-Gigabytes of Flash storage at a whopping 7MB/sec transfer rate over USB 2.0!

ThermoChill HE120-3 radiator
What can I say, the noise produced by those fans on an open system when placed right next to you is phenomenal. The air flow is so great that A4 sheets of paper stick to it and whole civilizations can be sucked into the vortex. However the noise produced is no match for Rammstein, so up goes the volume, "Ich will dass ihr mir vertraut..." fans? what fans?"

Vantec Nexus NXP-201 Fan Controller Review
It might look like the controller comes in one of those unopenable packages that we hate around here, but looks can be deceiving. This packaging actually clips open so if you decide to sell it at a later date you can package it back up nice and tidy. Why can't all manufacturers go with this packaging?

Chenming Silver 301KE Aluminum Case Video Review
The Chenming Silver 301KE Aluminum Case is lightweight, looks great, has a clear window with pre-cut 80mm fan hole, two front USB and one fire wire port, removable 3.5" drive rack and more. Unfortunately the motherboard tray is not removable and since the case is small it means tight working conditions. Watch the Video to find out more
