Here in the EU, decent external storage solution here costs like 60 maybe even 80 EUR easily. Which is over a hundred USD. So when the company Eagle contacted me and asked if I wanted to look at some of their devices the first thing I did was look at their pricing ... and I was shocked (in a good manner).
OnAir Solution's USB HDTV-GT is a moderately priced, but full-featured HDTV adapter for your PC. It doesn't have the couch potato appeal that a real TV has, but this probably works better than your TV. With the GT you'll be able to record or pause your shows at up to 1080i resolutions, pulling from cable (QAM, unencrypted) or over the air. It will even do analog, while it lasts. Best reception of OTA signals does take a little fiddling with the antenna, but just a nudge can make all the difference. Highly recommended.
Today we are testing this cute External LCD-Display with the colossal 240x128 Pixel dimensions. Now that by itself is cool, but the software controlling the unit is where the magic happens. You can display pretty much any system info, yet it goes way beyond that. RivaTuner is supported, Fraps, Mainboard Monitor (MBM), SpeedFan and it does not stop there.
As you guys know by now water-cooling is one of the most efficient ways of cooling down a CPU. And it's not just efficient, it's usually very quiet to the ears and it can look fantastic in a system. What we'll be testing today is a water-cooling kit called 3D Galaxy II (GH-WIU02) and additionally to that kit something called the Blue Eye, which is water block for graphics cards that you can buy optionally with this kit.
Without a doubt the Calmer 300 Watt Power Supply is an admirable product. It states 300 Watt on the box but it has a little peak backup that will make sure you can stress it towards 350 rather well. Keep in mind that the ambient temperature of your PC case will rise a little though. Nothing to worry about, but like I said it might be an issue for hardcore overclockers.
What is Widio you ask ? Well my fellow guru's a Wireless Audio Device. It's a gadget that I just had to show you in a review, so the minute it became available Albatron submitted it for a test. Widio is a small wireless audio transmitter and receiver device that broadcasts on the 2.4 GHz band at a rate of 2Mbit per second. You can connect to towards for example your DVD, CD, MP3 Player, PC or even XBox for all I care and then broadcasts that signal to the range available, roughly 40-50 Meters.
The 31 grams weighing one AAA battery powered MUVO ladies and gentlemen is next to being a storage device also a voice recorder and hey ... you know what ? It can also playback music in MP3 and WMA format. It's equipped with fast USB 2.0 port, has a nice little LCD which you can use to select music and for example change the 5 band graphical equalizer.
It seems that in case modding today, thermal monitoring devices that go to the front of the case, are becoming more and more "of the trend". Those little gadgets get more and more attention for companies that are into case modding producing products with LCD displays, dials and the works. But for those that want to remember the old analog ages or those that want something different, the Musketeer is here.
