Would be nice to see some benchmarks using the GPU coolers. Pictures are nice but we need figures

I thought so too. But the vantec ones are quiet and efective... I think I'm gonna buy a Sondigo Sirocco, not very cheap but my room is flooded with cables so I guess It wouldn't be bad to have such a device

Why review an audio product and not even mention what it sounds like?

It should do but the problem being in the uk the only region broadcasting HDTV over the air is london and the format is h.264 not mpeg2. So you need a BDA device (not 1005 true that you need a bda device but let go with it for now) which this must be to be supported by mce. Then you need at least a dual core cpu to get full frame rates, and some 3rd party software such as dvbsource. I would personally never by a kworld product though due to slow download of drivers and poor support.

I found this week's lineup to be a bit poor. I know it's not really up to you @ BTHQ, nonetheless.
A bit dissapointing, we were used to better things !

That second GPU cooler looks a lot like a Revoltec GPU cooler...

The only really promising thing of the desk this week is the Sondigo Sound Bridge and the others, such as the Jet Art video card cooler are good products but not the best and not inovative, why get this when you can get an Artic Cooler... And the Kworld DVB-T is just another mini tuner and they have never been that good and it does'nt shine...

There was no difference in sound quality between connecting directly to the speakers and streaming music via WiFi.

hiya, that charger type device that runs on 4x AAs looks promising. Is there an easy way to get one of those to the UK? this would be ace for my iPod and PSP.

Any uk distributors?

Thanks in advance

One thing I noticed that I think you should have mentioned was in the picture of the Soundbridge.
The little american plug thing (like a short wire extender) is a gread idea, as it moves the big power brick off the socket, leaving room for other plugs. Tis a bit odd that it was included with an english plug, but a nice idea.

I like that battery pack with the rechargeable AA, plenty of connectors. To bad I didnít hear about it earlier all my summer traveling is over now.

I like that iPod Nano charger (would be nice for my 22 hour flight to australia next week) but it doesn't work with the 80% of Nanos that have cases on them. It would be more effective if it wasn't so "encasing" around the iPod.

For anyone with a case around their IPod, use an altoids home made charger
