The ASUS vh232h is a 23″ LCD display with a 5ms response time, 20,000:1 contrast ratio, and a full 1080p 1920×1080 resolution. Add in HDMI connectivity and built-in speakers, this wall-mountable display is candidate for some serious gaming, movie-watching, or, well, Farmville-ing (if you’re of that persuasion). ThinkComputers has the review. Geeks.com was nice enough to send the ASUS VH232H 23-inch 1080p LCD Monitor over, they are a great place to find flat panel monitors.
High Definition (HD) video is all the rage right now. I don’t think you can find a new digital camera these days does not record video in HD. With video being easier to capture and all of the video sharing sites out there pocket video cameras are really popular right now. They are small devices to make it really easy to record video and most record in HD. Today we will be looking at one such device, the Zi8 from Kodak. It features 1080p 16:9 video capture, an SD/SDHC card slot, and an external microphone jack to record stereo sound. Geeks.com was nice enough to send the Kodak Zi8 Pocket HD Video Camera over, they are a great place to find cheap camcorders.

Cooling, power, and chassis profferors Cooler Master just launched a new line of high-end power supply, the Silent Pro Gold series. This series is 80PLUS Gold certified and is backed by a five year warranty. It’s a hybrid modular unit, meaning that it has some cables built-in while others are modular. This is among the first 80PLUS Gold-certified units ThinkComputers has seen. We recently reviewed the first 80PLUS Gold-certified PSU we’d seen, the Sparkle Gold Class 1250W. 80PLUS Gold means that the unit is at least 90% efficient at 20%, 50%, and 100% load. ThinkComputers has the review.
“Unique. Unprecedented. Inspired.” This is the motto of NZXT and the Vulcan Case is the embodiment of all three words. NZXT computer cases have really broken into the scene over the past few years, especially with their New Micro ATX case the Vulcan. I was excited to see someone come out with a computer case like this, having always been on the lookout for a good lan party case to make transporting everything easy. The Vulcan was created with serious Gamers in mind with enough space for a full sized graphics card while still maintaining sufficient airflow. Now let’s take a look at the NZXT Vulcan. Who knows? This might be the next purchase for your MATX gaming build.
Up until this point the solid state drives we have looked at have been limited to the SATA 3Gbps standard. While solid state drives are still much faster than normal hard drives we haven’t been able to really push them to their limits. There is where SATA 6Gbps comes in; basically you are getting 2X the speed of SATA 3Gbps. We have already seen ASUS and Gigabyte make SATA 6Gbps standard on some of their motherboards and I’m sure others will follow. Crucial is the first to come out with a SATA 6Gbps solid state drive. The drive is the C300 and it features the new Marvell 88SS9174-BJP2 Solid State Drive controller and boasts speeds of 355MB/s read and 215MB/s write. This drive also is one of the first to use ONFI 2.1 synchronous NAND flash. Read on as we test one of the fastest solid state hard drives available!
