Good morning all.  The weekend is just about here and the gang at HH are in full swing with various hardware reviews.  I know I have 5 pieces queued up and some of the other fellas have even more, so there will be no shortage of hardware treats for quite some time.  Top that off with the holiday season and we are sure to be buried until Spring.  For now, though, let's take a look at some of the other offerings floating around the Web. We've got a double shot from the gang @ HEXUS.net: First up is their review of ATI's TV Wonder USB 2.0: "I prefer the PCI version for latency reasons, but if USB2.0 is the interface you need for a TV tuner and multimedia product without...

Good evening brothers and sisters, welcome back :)  The day is coming to a close and the HH news-bin is busting at the seams.  However, before I jump over to the news front, I want to point out that Jeff recently posted his review of S3's OmniChrome TV/Graphics Card, their competitor to ATi's All-In-Wonder and NVIDIA's Personal Cinema line of products.  Take a few minutes and check it out before you scroll down to the news...

With the advent of Personal Video Recorders or the "PVR", TV and Multimedia industries have entered a new realm of technology.  The ability to pause, rewind, and record live TV all with the click of a button is not only cool, it is extremely convenient.  Let's be honest, how often do you have the time to catch your favorite TV shows all the time, every time one is on?  The one downfall of owning a PVR up to this point, is the price.  Most PVR's will run you upwards of $300 and while the thought of having one is truly exciting, in most cases, it simply doesn't justify the price.  ATi Tecnologies, mostly known for its line of consumer graphics cards, has a long...

Judging by the amount of "you have mail" notifications I have received over the past few hours, I think it is time for another shot of juice.  So, run over to the water cooler, grab a cold drink and shut the cubical door.  It is time for round two...  Chaintech SK8T800 Review @ AMD Zone "Well the big plus of the Chaintech is of course the low price.  Stability of the board was also good, and you get SATA RAID, 5.1 channel audio, and built in Ethernet as a part of the package.  You wouldn't see those options at this price point a year ago."  ATI TV Wonder USB 2.0 Review @ Beyond3D "Internally the we can clearly see TV Wonder USB 2.0 uses the...

Good morning gang, JeffB here ringing in yet another weekend.  The HH labs are starting to really pile up with the hardware lately, guess it's a sign that the holiday season is right around the corner.  With so much new hardware this year, things should be real interesting.  I think there are going to be a bunch of happy little geekmeisters this year come December!  Until then, we are going to do our best to make sure you know what is hot or not this season.  Here's your news for this morning... HIS X800XT and X800 Pro IceQ II Video Cards @ hardcoreware.net: "Today we're reviewing HIS' entries into the X800 market: The X800 XT Platinum, and the X800 Pro. These cards... Read more...
Good morning all.  It's time for a little hardware news for this Friday morning.  We have a good selection of reading for you, so let's get down to business. Today, Bjorn3D has a look at Imation's 256MB USB 2.0 Swivel Flash Drive: "People lose stuff. Whether it's car keys, a five dollar bill or a favorite pen, we all seem to lose things we don't want to lose. I guess people were losing their USB drive caps too, because Imation decided to come to the rescue and prevent any more lost caps. Most USB drives (commonly called pen drives and flash drives) are very similar in design, but Imation's USB 2.0 Swivel Flash Drive takes a new approach." Hexus.net checks in with two major...

Good afternoon HotHardware fans!  The purpose of this post is two-fold - First off, I wanted to make sure I was comfortable working in our spiffy new editor, and secondly, I wanted to post a few more links to some noteworthy items.  The news has been slowly trickeling in for the last few hours, so there isn't much to cover, but it'll be enough to keep you busy for a little while...  Thermaltake MobileFan 2 & 2 @ TheCrucible.ca: "Heat, seems that everything is getting hotter in the computer world. Even your hands? Thermaltake seems to think so. Thus brings us to the Mobile fan 2 & 2 , USB powered adjustable fans."    nForce3 250 Chipset Overclocking article... Read more...
  Hercules Audio - Muse Pocket USB External Soundcard Audio at your Fingertips Jason R. Gibson February 29, 2004 Recently Hercules is punching out more new audio devices then you can shake a stick at.  This time, they're back with yet another way of getting the groove from your computer to your speakers, the Gamesurround Muse Pocket.  Unlike Hercules's last attempt at an external sound machine, their DJ Console, one can not scratch or remix their music with this product.  However, with a simple push of a button, one acquires total volumetric control over the output of the sound card or should we say "knob". With computer modding and overall visual appearance of ones... Read more...
    The Plextor PlexWriter 48/24/48U External Hi-Speed USB 2.0 CD-RW Drive Speedy Burning On The Go Jay Gibson December 29, 2002 Since their debut in 1990, Plextor has been striving to make a name for themselves as one of the top-producing optical storage device manufactures in the market. Their introductions of generations of award-winning devices, has enabled them to generate an annual revenue of approximately $500 million per year, while providing some very stiff competition for their fellow combatants. As we're sure you would agree, Plextor is sort of the bellweather of optical drive manufacturers. The first thing we noticed after unpacking this new Plextor drive, was... Read more...
D-Link DHN-920 - 10Mb Phone Line USB Network In A Box  A Home Network For Dummies By Dave Altavilla - September 11, 2000   The proverbial "free lunch", this is what Home Networking really delivers to most people and what draws consumers down the isles of the retail store peering at boxes.  Let think about this for a moment.  Most households these days are quickly justifying the expense (if it can be afforded) of adding a second computer for the kids or possibly the spouse instead (in many cases ladies, I realize there may be a fine line between the two anyway).  Now, each one of these machines needs access to the internet and printer service.  The rest...

  The Massworks ID-75 USB Touchscreen Limitless Possibilities? By, Marco Chiappetta September 5, 2001   Recently I was presented with an opportunity to test a truly unique product from a little known company based in Albuquerque, New Mexico...Massworks.  Massworks has developed a compact USB Touchscreen controller for Windows and Linux based PCs called the ID-75.  Initially, Massworks introduced this product to us as a "USB Touchscreen Game Controller", but once the product was in our hands and functional, it was painfully obvious that the ID-75 is capable of so much more.  We were confused as to why this product was being marketed as a game controller, so we...

 WinTV USB  USB TV Tuner Statistics have shown that the average American watches at least 10-20 hours of TV a week (give or take a few hours). However, ever since the introduction of computers, the average computer users probably watches less TV and surfs the net more. That's where the USB WinTV comes in to play. Starring at the computer screen all day and night can be boring and static, so let me introduce you to a device that will turn you back into a spud and into a chair potato. Hauppauge the company is well known for their TV cards. Their use of the BT48 chipset has pretty much made them a standard for PC users of many OS's. Their PCI TV cards can be found at the local Office Max,... Read more...
