NZXT Phantom 410 Mid-Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
The Phantom 410 is a Mid-tower version of the popular full-tower NZXT Phantom case. The NZXT Phantom 410 mid-tower case brings new features and improves upon the original full-tower design. An acrylic viewing window adorns the Phantom 410's left side panel, giving enthusiasts a chance to show off their hardware. The NZXT Phantom 410's top 140mm exhaust fan is outfitted with LED lights to accentuate the interior components further. Despite having a smaller size, the NZXT Phantom 410 mid-tower case makes intelligent use of component mounting options, providing plenty of room for large graphics cards, multiple HDDs and even a 240 or 280mm water-cooling radiator on top. Like the original NZXT Phantom full-tower case, the NZXT Phantom 410 is available in multiple color options, including an upcoming black version with an orange or white trim.

Intel 520 Series 240GB Solid State Drives in RAID 0 @ TweakTown
I'm a bit surprised no one has asked why Intel sampled most media outlets with two and in some cases three identical 520 Series 240GB drives for review. As a consumer I'd rather have seen performance numbers from both 240GB (our single drive review is here) and 120GB drives since these are the capacity sizes that make the most sense for computer users today. As you can imagine, no one is going to complain about getting dual 240GB drives especially media folks who are generally power users with PCs on steroids.

A few months back we looked at the OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 and learned that OCZ figured out how to get TRIM working on the drive's RAID controller. The hardware is ready, but Windows is now the roadblock we were told. Months later we started finding hints that Intel was getting ready to release software that allows TRIM to work in RAID as well.

HP Wi-Fi Touch Mouse X7000 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
The HP Wi-Fi Touch Mouse X7000 performs a neat trick: It connects to your laptop or desktop not with a cable, a wireless dongle, or Bluetooth, but with Wi-Fi. It throws in an extra treat for social networking fanatics dedicated "post to Facebook" button but it leaves plenty of other people out in the cold.
