On our desks this week (1)

Thoughts on the products and/or format of the article? We're open to (constructive) criticism or fanboy praise

Save 3 x 2 with DIY screen protectors.

For my digi-cam's TFT, I used some generic PDA protector plastic and cut it to size.
You get 3 sheets that fit 5" screens (max) for 4 from Jessops
You could mod your own with a funky edge or something.

We see lots of great stuff that we don't always think requires pages and pages of in-depth review...
I'll be happy to road-test that psu for you, and I'll agree to not write an in-depth review.

Good idea if the stuff's new in the shops.

I thought this article was great, liked the layout too. It's a real nice light-read, especially when compared to Bit-Tech's more 'intense' features *cough*Tim*cough*.

Also, Tagan owns you some money. I'm just about to order that PSU.

I like the new article layout, just a nice short overview of stuff, that doesnt really need a full review. Also a nice light read.

EDIT: Apple's range of PowerBooks have backlit keyboards so that you can work in low-ligh, but there's more of an application for this - you can take your laptop into bed, or work on a train or plane. But a desktop? I'm not sure I get it.

Should it be light?

I am a fan of this. Great way to do new, small kit. But, guys, please see my post in the feedback section, as this has reminded me of an idea.

Are all the cables on the Tagan braided, or is it just the VGA/ATX/4-pin ones like on older Tagans? A pic with all the cables plugged into the PSU wouldn't go amiss, there's a dearth of info online about these so far apart from publicity shots

I really liked this format. Sort of the "USA Today" version of your reviews. Lets you know the product is out there and an initial impression, giving me a spring board if i find it interesting to go find out more.

Great Idea, keep them coming!

(USA Today, for those who don't know, is a smallish (in pages) nationally distributed newspaper that provides short quick articles, rather than in depth articles. Other than one or two front page stories, no articles jump to a further page. It's a quick "overview" read of the daily events)
