NZXT Sentry 2 Touchscreen Fan Controller
Featured Reviews: Accessories

Benchmark Reviews has the pleasure of testing NZXT's newest fan control: the Sentry 2 Touchscreen Fan Controller. A step up from the Sentry 1 and a worthy stable mate for the Sentry LX. The Sentry 2 is a different approach to the same problem. A more elegant solution to a problem that has plagued computer enthusiasts since their earliest days; fan noise. With it's touchscreen controls it's a definite step in the right direction above and beyond it's predecessor the Sentry 1, the Sentry 2 is simplicity itself.

Taking up only half the space of the Sentry LX you might think the NZXT Sentry 2 has only half the features or capabilities but you'd be wrong. Gone are the buttons bells and whistles but what's left is the best of the LX with a touchscreen to make those core features even better and easier to use with some added benefits as well.

NZXT Sentry LX SEN-001LX Digital Fan Controller
Featured Reviews: Accessories

With multiple core CPUs, multi-GPU video graphics sub-systems and hotter than hot mainboard north and southbridge chipsets it becomes necessary for most gaming computers to have more and more fans. With the fans comes noise. Of course there's water cooling, but not everyone is capable or even brave enough to give that a try. So what do you do? Well one option is to use a fan speed controller. There are many fan controllers available but today Benchmark Reviews will look specifically at the NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX aluminum digital dual-bay fan controller.

ASUS My Cinema EHD3-100 HDTV/FM Tuner
Featured Reviews: Accessories

Those who want to watch over the air TV at all must either purchase a TV with an ATSC tuner installed or purchase one of the conversion boxes out there. For the HTPC crowd, it means that their tuner card must support ATSC just the same. Most cards out there are going to produce video results that are exactly the same, especially considering the signal and quality are more a factor of antenna reception than card quality. So, what's to make someone decide on one TV tuner over another? The ASUS My Cinema-EHD3-100 answers this question by going one step further than most cards out there to be your all-in-one media center card. It fully supports the ATSC and QAM digital TV specifications allowing you to access digital TV in high definition resolution. It also fully supports analog NTSC TV, analog video and radio. Plus, its on-board mpeg-2 encoder chip helps on-the-fly analog video recording. Is the My Cinema-EHD3-100 your HTPC answer? Benchmark Reviews will fill you in!

Come February 17, 2009, most major broadcast stations in the US will make the final switch from analog to digital broadcasts and this has been coming for a long time. This switch will affect the computer user two-fold. The analog video tuners that people bought long ago will not pick up broadcasts any longer. But, at the same time, it's a great opportunity for HTPC and media center builders to develop a digital TV recorder and viewer for their computers. The ASUS My Cinema U3100Mini steps into place as a portable digital TV tuner and recorder with the ability to accept both ATSC signals over the air as well as QAM signals through coaxial cable connections. Does the ASUS My Cinema U3100 Mini deliver? Read on and Benchmark Reviews will fill you in.

This popular demand has even driven manufacturers to add the most basic I/O ports to the front of PCs.

Featured Reviews: Accessories

Since none of the manufacturers filling my entertainment system shelves can offer more than simple one-device remotes, I was in need of either a deluxe remote control caddy with labeled organizer, or I would need to get a universal remote control and take a day off work just to program it. It was a quest for the unobtainable, a journey for the unthinkable; I wanted to replace a collection of remote controls with... One Remote to Control Them All. Logitech heard my cries of despair, and presented the Harmony 890 Pro Advanced Universal Remote Control to save the day.
