The Sony DCRDVD703E offers some truly useful features that help distinguish it from the other Sony models and its competitors. It handles as well as many MiniDV tape based camcorders.
The Sparkle's 6600GT GPU will provide you with great gaming performance, and its high-definition output as well as S-Video input and output make it a versatile piece of equipment for the user who wants to connect their PC to a high-definition capable...
"Volvo: Boxy but good" was the slogan created by a wigged-out advertising executive (played by Dudley Moore) in the 1990 film Crazy People, but he could just as easily have been referring to a certain Canadian hi-fi manufacturer. For Paradigm is the ...
When you pick up the diminutive DCRDVD653E, you realise that the disc itself is the main hindrance to the design. While most of the body is around 7.5cm high, the casing on the right-hand side of the body protrudes past the rest of the casing, due to...
With the DCRDVD7E, Sony has approached DVD camcorder design from a completely new angle, taking an inspiration cue from digital still cameras, rather than digital video cameras.
The DCRDVD602E is reasonably light, at around 500 grams with battery and DVD disc, and measures 12.7 x 10 x 5cm--thin enough to carry around in a coat pocket.
The specifications of this card are very impressive. It can push up to 35.2GB of data every second between its 256MB of GDDR3 memory subsystem and its ATI Radeon X800 XT GPU. It can render an astounding 8320 million pixels per second thanks to its 16...
Sony's DCRDVD201E uses either 1.4GB, 8cm DVD-R or DVD-RW. When recording in standard play mode, you'll get between 23 and 26 minutes of footage on one disc. You can get more on a disc by using long play mode but at the cost of image quality. The most...
PowerColor cards follow the reference design set by ATI very closely, and are differentiated by their bundles of extras. This particular model comes with the popular game Hitman:Contracts, Medi@show 2.0SE and a CyberLink DVD Solution DVD, which inclu...
Early generations of DVD camcorders were clunky, half-baked efforts at taking advantage of the inevitable onslaught of DVD in the home. It took a few years before a DVD camcorder arrived that could even remotely compare to a miniDV camcorder with reg...
This AGP offering from Leadtek is based on the GeForce 6800 GT, and it requires a fair bit of hardware to keep it cool. Leadtek has employed a large (but relatively quiet) fan, which sits on a thick copper heat sink that encompasses the both GPU and ...
AOpen's newest barebones (motherboard and case) small form factor PC is the first we've seen to use an Intel Pentium M (notebook) processor--perfect for reducing noise and heat. Processor installation was easy enough, but the circuit board to which t...
As people slowly grow accustomed to the idea of thin, stylish flat-panel televisions in their living rooms, it's logical to assume that sooner or later they'll start looking at large, bulky speaker systems as a blight on their carefully constructed l...
While Martin Logan's hybrid electrostatic speakers have long enjoyed a reputation for great sound, they also have a reputation for being somewhat, er, difficult to live with. How so? For starters, electrostatic panels are a dipole design--that is, th...
PMC hasn't been around long, but it has quickly become a name synonymous with high-quality speakers. Everything in the company's domestic range is good-looking, with high build-quality, real wood veneers and simple understated designs, and they appea...
Whether it’s consumer or enterprise security there is one bottom line: there is no point in cutting corners when it comes to security.
