Digital cameras keep on going down in price and you can easily get a great point and shoot digital camera for around $150 these days. With many digital cameras being almost the same, what do you really look for in a camera? The things that I really look at are how many megapixels the camera has, the zoom on the lens, and how big the LCD is. Well today we are looking at a 10-megapixel camera that has a 4x optical zoom and a nice large 3-inch LCD display. The camera I’m talking about is the Kodak EasyShare M420. Geeks.com was nice enough to provide us with the Kodak M420 for review. Geeks.com is a great place to find cheap digital cameras.
Home Theatre PC’s or HTPC’s have been around for a few years now and are very popular. Most people use their old PC for a HTPC. The problem with that is that they are loud, not that powerful, and take up a lot of space. Well ASRock has got your HTPC needs covered with the ION 330HT Nettop that is capable of full 1080p high definition video playback and true-fidelity 7.1 surround sound audio. This system is powered by a Dual Core Intel Atom 330 (1.6GHz) processor, NVIDIA ION Graphics Processor, 2GB DDR2-800 memory, 320GB hard drive, DVD player and even WiFi!

Today we have the opportunity to take a look at the NZXT Gamma Mid Tower Case. This chassis supports up to six fans, has a complete black interior, and has plenty of higher end features packed into a small case. In the past couple years more and more cases are packing more features at a cheaper price; the NZXT Gamma is no exception. Read on further to see what else this case has to offer.
From all of us here at ThinkComputers we want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas! We hope everyone got what they wanted this year! Wonder what we wanted this year? Check out our 2009 Wish List!

Not everyone needs a particularly flashy or super powerful power supply unit. The Thermaltake TR2 series caters to users who need functionality, but have no need for bells and whistles beyond modular cabling and 80PLUS certification. The TR2 RX subseries delivers the modular cable management savvy users expect these days. ThinkComputers checks out the TR2 RX 750W in this review.
The other day I received a package in the mail from ASUS. It contained the packages you see above. ASUS was nice enough to send us a Christmas gift this year to show their appreciation for our support of their products. I really was not sure what was inside the boxes, but when I went to open them I was surprised with cookies and candy! These treats are from Cheryl&Co. and are very good, ASUS picked a good set that has something everyone will like. Special thanks to ASUS for all their support throughout the year and we wish them a very safe and happy holiday.
QNAP’s network attached storage devices are known for stability, versatile features, and great support from the few-year-old Taiwanese company. This time around, we’re reviewing TS-439U-RP, a 1U rackmount, dual power supply, dual NIC, dual OS, and four bay NAS aimed at the small business and corporate sector. It can serve up files via SMB, AFP, NFS, FTP, and a variety of other alphabet-soup protocols. It can stream audio and video to gaming consoles, backup to cloud services, and so much more. ThinkComputers has the review.
Television-connected media players from pretty much any company outside a Fortune 500 technology player are hit and miss some get popularized via hype and excellent marketing campaigns, while others are half-assed devices which get the job done but are beyond frustrating to use. The Masscool MP-1371RS Media Player may have a very generic name, and look like it probably falls into the half-assed category, but I assure you, it does not. ThinkComputers reviews this sleeper contender and gives it rave reviews.
