A collection of news items, product reviews and press releases from manufacturers and fellow sites from around the web.
- Diva Gem Bluetooth MP3 Player Review
Daisy Multimedia sent us their highly anticipated DIVA GEM Bluetooth enabled MP3 Player. We reported about this interesting Gadget last November. Now I have the chance to try it first hand.
The Bluetooth function enables users to use the DIVA GEM as a wireless Head-set or Hands-free device for mobile phones. So users can listen to music and can pick-up incoming calls with the MP3 Player. Pretty neat concept. Lets see if it works.
- We are happy to announce that 2 new products will be released today for
the US market:
Nero PhotoShow Elite - The Easy and Complete Photo Experience
Nero 6 Ultra Edition - a new exciting update of the award-winning digital media suite
- Chaintech Geforce FX5500 256Meg Videocard Review @ Tweaknews.net
"Chaintech's FX5500 is a great little video card with lots of spunk.
The 256MB DDR will help boost your system so that you can play newer games
(look how well it did with Jedi Knight II). It's a solid card which performed quite
well in our benchmarks. Considering the extra RAM and the fact that it's a 128-bit card,
I had expected it to outperform the 128MB 64-bit 9600SE in each test… granted
Radeons have consistently performed better than NVIDIA chips in certain benchmarks."
- Hightech Excalibur Radeon 9200SE Videocard Review @ Tweaknews.net
"Now before you discredit this card as a slow piece of hardware, let me clarify one thing.
This card is neither meant or intended to be a screamer in any way shape or form.
What this card is offering is a very cost effective solution to a person needing the
great 2D quality ATI is know for, allow the user to have fully functional VIVO capabilities
and do some very minor gaming from time to time. For me to judge this videocard on
gaming performance alone would be a very ignorant and completely unfair. Not every
card is made to perform in the enthusiast market."
- Lite-On introduces it's 12x DVD dual drive, the SOHW-1213S.
Available middle of June.
