REVIEW

Creative Sound Blaster X7

The Creative Sound Blaster X7 offers a ridiculous number of features for the money and sound quality is generally very good, but its appeal is limited.

NZXT Cryo E40
REVIEW

NZXT Cryo E40

For under $30, the NZXT Cryo E40 provides efficient cooling through its movable fans, and its metal body makes it look like a more expensive accessory.

Powermat Portable Mat
REVIEW

Powermat Portable Mat

The Powermat isn't entirely free of wires, but it succeeds at being different and at powering your phone. On the other hand, we don't see it fulfilling a need.

EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked
REVIEW

EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked

We don't think most gamers shopping for a midrange 3D card are looking for power efficiency, but for those conscientious few, the EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked is the card for you. Otherwise, you can get noticeably more performance and capability from an only slightly more expensive ATI card.

Speed never comes cheap, however, and if you're willing to spend for it now, you'll find yourself in possession of the fastest CPU on the market.
