The Vantage Vue was sent to us courtesy of www.davisnet.com in USA and through their Australian distributor Ecowatch at www.davisinstruments.com.au in Australia. With the product being their latest 2010 model hot off the assembly line it required some last minute radio frequency alterations to conform with Australian legal requirements.
Let me first apologise to those people who were expecting a “shoot out”. Unfortunately, the other party would not supply their product under the same concept and understanding that Davis did. Davis just said “we are sending you our latest 2010 product, compare it with whatever you like”. Nice to be so sure of yourself I guess, but I did wonder if they were perhaps too bold.
Have Davis set a new benchmark for their competitors to aspire to? Let’s see!
The Xigmatek HDT S1284 and Dark Knight S1283V coolers are two offerings from Xigmatek that offer Heatpipe Direct Technology. Loaded with large heatsinks and large fans, these have the potential to offer significant cooling properties.
Let's find out if these coolers have what it takes to swim along with the many coolers out there.
This computer keyboard is different than all other keyboards that we have reviewed in the past. Rather than putting all these fancy features on a keyboard that we may not actually need, a company has decided to go back to the 'basics' of the keyboard. Going back to the 'basics', may not always have the desired effect. This keyboard has a pricetag that most people may not be willing to pay for a keyboard. At the same time, this review aims to see if this keyboard justifies its cost.
It's been a while since we've reviewed any products from the Proporta stable but as you know they are purveyors of anything that is essential in the way of accessories for our digital lifestyle.
Take for instance this new Proporta USB TurboCharger 3400. The name gives it away what it is and does and that's a pretty good indication of the no-nonsense simplicity of this product: it's your mobile battery when you're away from home and want to recharge your gadgets.
Still hot on the topic of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 certified products, the Jabra GN9350 gets a workout at DigitalReviews.net. To recap, Jabra is one of three vendors (including GN Netcom entity) who has Microsoft Office Communicator certified headsets. Of these three vendors, Jabra has the most products certified for OCS.
What's a dashboard Donut? It has nothing to do with anything edible that might have been stuck to your car's dashboard. Neither is it a device to ease one's haemorrhoids pain as one uncharitable co-worker remarked the other day. Nor is it a parking space for a desktop rodent. It's big and incredibly heavy and becomes an immovable object once you find the right spot on your dash.
It's Adapt's latest contribution to automobile safety: a place to put your mobile phone, PDA, PND or any other device and anchor it securely.
Let's see how it works.
Last time we reviewed the Nephilim Stargates and recommended it highly, despite the fact that it is a challenging and provocative subject matter. If this book doesn't make you sit up and think -- nothing else really will. Perhaps not even the audio CDs that are part of this package even though hearing the spoken word is probably more penetrating than the pages of a book. Some people are more visually oriented, others just would like to listen to something.
I am happy to do both: I'd love to curl up with a book on my sunny veranda and I also like to listen to MP3s on my phone -- not so much to music but the spoken word. Being a multitasker I'd love to do that while performing some mundane task, like making breakfast or walking the dog.
