Last year we took a look at ASUS’s first external Blu-ray combo drive, the SBC-04D1S-U. It was the perfect external combo drive for a laptop or desktop and received a perfect 10 out of 10 score in our testing. ASUS has updated the SBC-04D1S-U with faster Blu-ray read speeds and a few other features. They are calling this new combo drive the SBC-06D1S-U. Let’s see if ASUS can make this drive any better than the previous drive we tested!
When people think of manufacturers who make compact digital cameras, few will probably think of Samsung. Though recently, it seems Samsung has been building more photographic equipment, and been doing a great job of it too. The latest compact digital camera from Samsung to reach the market is the EX1. With its compact metal body, an impressive F1.8-2.4 optical zoom lens capable of 24mm at the wide-angle and an articulated screen, it looks like Samsung is serious about their cameras.
Our review of Mafia II was published earlier this week, but thanks to the fact that all we had accessible up until launch was a preview build, the performance testing had to wait. Well, that’s now all done, so if you’re looking to see which GPU will serve you best for some hardcore Mafia action, look no further.
For the past few years, car companies have jumped on the digital media bandwagon, offering USB ports to load music from your iPod Touch and Bluetooth streaming audio to play tracks right from your iPhone. Now, new music technology is emerging that goes a step further – letting you play music from Pandora Radio or over a very high-speed wireless network.

Throughout the testing today we compared the GIGABYTE 890FXA-UD5 to the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula. Despite my board preferences the GIGABYTE 890FXA-UD5 fell ever so slightly behind the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula. Although, there is one area that the GIGABYTE 890FXA-UD5 fell behind in that is a good place to be lower: the price. Currently you can find the GIGABYTE 890FXA-UD5 for as little as $179.99 while the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula is sitting at a heftier price of $224.85. The question that arises is, is the extra $45.00 worth the ever so slight performance increase?
