The two companies will invest $1.9 billion (USD) on machinery and equipment for the new LCD panel factory and Samsung will spend an additional 940 million to construct the building. The new factory will be located next to an existing plant in Tangjeong, South Korea. Both plants will be operated by Sony and Samsung's LCD manufacturing joint venture, S-LCD Corp.

If you're in the market for a large, widescreen LCD, you'll want to check out this review from Overclocker's Online. They've taken Samsung's gorgeous 244T for a spin, and liked it so much they gave it an award.  Nice LCD for sure, but I'll be sticking with my Dell 2405 until I can afford something bigger! :) "Samsung has once again delivered an exceptional display product that's far superior than any of the monitors I have worked with to date. The colors are exceptionally beautiful and there was no ghosting or blurring even during the most action packed scenes tested."... Read more...

Samsung DVD-L75 Portable DVD Player @ CoolTechZone: "Portable DVD players are great consumer electronics devices to have if you're constantly on the road and would like something to keep you entertained for a little while. Samsung is one of the prominent CE manufacturers in the market with solid products from one product line to another.

Samsung YH-820 MP3 Player Review @ Designtechnica: "Apple may be king of the MP3 player hill, but there are several companies hoping to dethrone the big red, and Samsung's in line. The new YH-820 micro HDD based MP3 player is not only smaller than the iPod mini, but it sports a bright color display, and dare-we-say it, is just as attractive. But are good looks and solid sound enough to convince users to shun the Apple iPod mini? Read on to find out."

Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840 Processor Review @ PCPerspective: "The processor package itself looks like any other LGA775 Pentium processor released by the chip giant, and that is a good thing -- common sockets and connectors usually indicate a much easier transition to a new technology. However, this doesn't mean that current users of LGA775 motherboards based on older chipsets are just going to be able to replace their current Pentium 4 with the new Pentium XE; a new chipset is going to be required in the form of the 955X, which we'll cover on the next page."

Good morning everyone, how are we all doing this morning?  Myself, I am not to shabby; just hiding out in my office for the day.  I am not a big fan of this whole "spring showers" thing that Mother Nature keeps trying to pull on us every year.  Who really needs real flowers when you can just plant silk ones in your garden? ;) Here is your news...  The Uncertain State of DDR @ CoolTechZone "After we got back from CES this year, we reported back on the industry's speculation of DDR and where it's heading in the near future. It's pretty apparent that DDR isn't going to budge until after two years, if not more. Aside that, almost all memory makers had the same answers... Read more...
Hey folks, the news is moving slow today but there's enough for a decent read. I'm taking valuable time away from a Red Sox game right now, so you better enjoy the news :) WD 320GB PATA HDD @ Hardware Avenue "PATA is still considered by many as the HDD standard of choice - IDE cables are not ideal, but when using specialized rounded cables, they become far less of a problem air flow wise and actually aren't too bad in comparison to SATA cables. The HDD makers are aware that not everyone has bought into the rather slow moving SATA market so you'll still find high end HDD's featured on the PATA standard - which is exactly what we have in review today, the high end Western Digital WD3200 320GB PATA...

Good morning everyone, welcome back to our not so little corner of the internet.  Things are bumping up here in the Northern portion of the HH labs so we are going to get straight to stirring the ol'news pot. Enjoy you morning friends, here is your AM shot...  ATI vs Hauppauge @ HTPCnews.com "Using the Theater 550 Pro solely the softness doesn't stand out much. The bad part here is that unlike other capture devices I have used, the Theater 550 Pro's drivers do not offer sharpness control. What does stand out is how each of the capture cards handles a noisy analog cable signal. This is supposed to be the Theater 550 Pro's forte."  Samsungs Double-Layer DVD Burner @ ipkonfig...
