The Acer HN274H 3D Monitor is a widescreen monitor with an LED backlit Twisted-Nematic panel. The Acer HN274H 3D Monitor has a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz at the native resolution of 1920×1080. Users who have multiple devices can make use of the Acer HN274H’s four HDMI 1.4 ports as well as the Dual-Link DVI port for 3D entertainment. At the back of the Acer HN274H, there is a VGA port as well as an Audio-in jack for use of the built-in speakers. The 3D Vision emitter is also built into the top front bezel of the Acer HN274H so it is ready to be used with the bundled 3D Vision glasses right out of the box after the user installs the latest NVIDIA 3D Vision drivers.

Corsair made ‘all in one’ liquid cooling popular a few years ago and today the market is literally saturated with new ‘updated’ versions based on the same theme. KitGuru reviewed the Antec Kühler H20 620 in March, and it earned our highest award for the combination of class leading performance and competitive pricing. The latest 920 version is a more substantial design, with dual fans and an improved radiator.

We wouldn’t generally send out mass emails for news, but this one is so juicy that we wanted to share it with the world. NDA’s are funny things but sadly sites like us have to stick to them, due to the launch of new products onto the market. They are so strict that we can’t even mention what would happen to us if we broke one, and no we’re not kidding. They really are that tightly locked down. That’s why when we do reveal information, we have to be sneaky and cover our arses before we show you (the public) anything, including data, performance and sometimes even pictures. That’s why we sat here for literally 3 whole minutes before we came up with our little plan of showing you a picture of a new motherboard (which will remain nameless) until such a time that we can show you and give you details on it. Until then, all we can ask is for you to enjoy the eye candy of the Gigabyte……… Intel motherboard. See what we did there?

For years, we’ve encountered Samsung notebooks on various fairs and IT gatherings, but they’ve never amassed enough on the market for one to get to our office, it seems. This situation is finally prone to changing, it seems, and we got our hands on the first Samsung notebook that we’ve had the chance to test officially. The model at hand, although not exactly new, is well-balanced nevertheless, with a mid-range price and equipment; a perfect chance to get to know what Samsung envisions for mid-range PCs…

This is the first P67 board review we’re releasing but with plenty of other boards at our disposal, we were able to see exactly how this board compares in real-world situations as well as providing benchmarks for the number crazy addict users out there who like to squeeze every ounce out of their system which is what we’re most excited about with the Sandy Bridge platform and its overclocking potential. The board also boasts a sexy black style with gold accents, leaving this to be one to drool over, and with the potential to overclock to the limits, we were very excited about getting our hands on this board and seeing what it could really do.
