Shuttle XPC SN41G2
Shuttle XPC is by no means the fastest PC on the planet, however, it is not far behind the performance leader, Epox 8RDA+. Shuttle proves to us that size does NOT matter. Gone are the days where small and integrated PCs were considered as "sub-standard" when it comes to upgradability and performance. Heck, the XPC can even accommodate the latest ATi R9800Pro on its 200W PSU

Crucial PC3200 DDR400Mhz Review
As you can see from the results, the Crucial PC3200 held its own nicely even when compared to memory that had superior timings. Unfortunately, despite all our best efforts, the memory wouldn’t boot at any other timings while running at 200MHz. For that reason, we opted to skip the overclocking phase of the review. Our opinion is to look elsewhere if you’re intending on doing memory overclocking….

Samsung 171P LCD Review
The long strip of black, believe it or not, actually houses the “buttons” to activate the on screen display. It would be wrong of me to continue saying “buttons” so let’s get rid of that word altogether. Let’s replace it with, oh I don’t know, touch sensitivity! Yup, that’s right. The only button you will encounter on this monitor is the power button. The rest of the functions are activated via touch sensitive surfaces

Innovatek Tank-O-Matic
Nachdem wir bereits den Aquatube getestet haben, wollen wir uns auch einmal eine andere Version eines Ausgleichsbehälters anschauen. Dieser stammt von Innovatek und trägt den Namen Tank-O-Matic PLUGON "kurz" und wird direkt auf die Eheim Pumpen aufgesteckt. Aus dem so zur Verfügung gestellten Wasser- Reservoir kann die Pumpe dann direkt und absolut blasenfrei ansaugen

Apple 30GB iPod
Overall the latest iPod is more of an evolutionary step in the product line. However that is to be expected since Apple did get so much right the very first time around with the iPod. It's hard to top what they've already accomplished with this MP3 player. The 30GB iPod is a monster in terms of storage capacity. It will handle most music collections out there with aplomb. Is this device a must have? Not this current version. You may be better off getting a deal on the previous generation iPod. The Apple iPod has been the standards bearer for the last few years - this new model only solidifies the iPod has the device to beat
