SilverStone Precision Series PS07 Case Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 11:17P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Precision series currently has a size range from mATX to mid tower like the PS06 we review last week. Today, we will be taking a look at the smallest member of the family and that would be the PS07. The mATX form factor is fast becoming a high profile trend. The explosion of high overclocking motherboards and solid state drives which requires much less space has helped to drive the sales of the small cases. And couple this with the ability to use today`s larger high powered graphic cards; you really can`t go wrong with one of the little enclosures and that includes the PS07."

[DreamWare Computers] Samsung EX2F Digital Camera
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 1:45P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the course of the last year quite a few digital cameras have passed through my test bench. Some have been simple point-and-shoot models, where as others have been more advanced compact and CSC cameras aimed at being suitable, but smaller sized replacements to your bulky SLR. Here today I have the Samsung EX2F, which is a camera I`ve been excited to get my hands on. The EX2F is a little bulkier than a point-and-shoot, but still significantly smaller than a CSC or SLR camera would be. Where the EX2F stands out is all the features and functionality that is packed into such a small package."
