Boogie Bug may not be the best known mouse mat production company, but they have a cool logo and I hear they made some good fans in the past; maybe they can make a good mat? The AimB Pad I have with me is quite a small one by modern standards, but it promises comfortable usage at a budget price; I wonder.NB. Since this mouse mat is simply a smaller version of the Boogie Bug AimB Pad XL reviewed here, elements of this review may bare similarity to the XL's review.
Whether you love or hate them, Creative has become the most well-known PC audio add-in card supplier. While their X-Fi range of cards pleased many gamers, the lack of Vista drivers caused an equal quantity of miffed customers. Auzentech are now out to prove there are alternatives out there, and they are even releasing an X-Fi chip card soon. Today however I have their HDA X plosion 7.1 DTS Connect card. The X-Fi killer?

However, most will agree that some mats can improve comfort while using the mouse, but what if the mat is so big that it covers not only the mousing area, but the keyboard area too?

However, although there were several positive reviews of the 8600GT cards, the GTS ones received very little good publicity due to their mid range pricing with budget performance. Today I have with me the Galaxy 8600GTS OC; perhaps this one can reverse the stigma.
Having found the 8600GT cards from MSI to be great value for money, I was intrigued when asked to review Galaxy's overclocked version of the same card. How would it perform? And can it be overclocked even more? Let's find out.
Coolink have featured on XSReviews since 2006 and haven’t failed to impress. Today I have their CPU cooler, the Silentator which is a number substitution away from being Fatalonety’s favourite…
Antec; the champion of the biggest cases I’ve seen. Today, instead of their usual approach of adding centimetres, I have their Sonata III which is a more standard sized chassis toted as silent. Perhaps even mulnaz?
Media center PC’s are all the rage these days, with people swapping out their stand-alone DVD players for slim PC’s. Unfortunately, a PC doesn’t have its own screen like a DVD player. And that’s where SilverStone come in, or should I say SoundGraph?
Over the last couple of years OCZ have been gradually spreading their influence throughout the hardware market. Beginning at memory they moved into the cooler and PSU game and now even graphics cards with OCZ branding have found their way into our stores.
