In terms of speakers for the Apple iPod, I believe the Logic3 iStation 2.1 Subwoofer Speakers and Docking Station for iPod is a revelation. From first looks, you're left wondering - how could something so small, so compact, so light and so inexpensive produce so much sound? Well, we had a demonstration of the iStation and from the first few bars of an explosive guitar-based tune, we were totally blown away! It had much more sound than something of that size had a right to have! It had discernable bass, which is remarkable for something that tiny, and had a full sound that the guys in the other room could even hear. Sure, it won't replace your Bose surround sound systems, but for a portable way of getting awesome sound, the iStation cannot be beat!
Also, the iJet Wireless Remote Control for iPod is the perfect companion to the i-Station - now you can be comfortably seated in your lounge room or bedroom, chilling and listening to your music - and be able to change songs on your ipod without having to get up! How convenient is that?

Astone Iso Slim 5GB USB Mass Storage Device: That small... that much capacity... for that price??! What the heck!
The Astone Iso Slim isn't quite as small as some of the tiny memory sticks available today, however it packs a whopping 5GB of storage space! Being of a similar size to a small wallet, it's designed to fit into your pocket or bag/purse. So portability is definitely very good. It has a silver, aluminum finish which gives it a fair bit of flair and dare I say elegance - I mean we are talking about a hard drive after all! The Astone Iso Slim incorporates USB 2.0 technology, allowing it to transfer data up to a whopping 480MB/sec without relying on an external power source like many other portable hard drives do. However where the news gets extremely good is the price you pay for this much storage space. You will look to pay up to 4 times as much for a memory stick of the same storage capacity!! That's incredible value for money.
Whether you want a back-up hard drive or portable storage option for your documents/music/video and pics, the Astone Iso Slim offers tremendous versatility, capacity, performance and phenomenal value for money! Not bad... not bad at all.

You can tell Logitech have done extensive research with this baby, paying attention to what gamers want in their mice. The result - a super-sensitive, weight-configurable, comfortable mouse that will instantly give you an edge over your gaming competitors. Bring it on!
The 2000dpi laser technology with 6.4 megapixel/second processing gives rise to incredibly precise movement - no lag to speak of. However you will need a USB 2.0 to utilise this optimal performance, which most PC's have anyway. Button configuration is practical and comprehensive. Once the Logitech software is installed, you can use the two buttons at the base of the wheel to alter the mouse's sensitivity. The wheel also has a lateral tilt function which is cool for 'leaning' in fps games, but also handy in horizontal scrolling in Windows. Even the cord is designed so that it doesn't tangle up - thanks to its woven, synthetic construction. However what's really unique with this mouse is an internal weight cartridge which can be extracted and altered to suit the user. This will allow you keen gamers to weight the mouse to meet your own gaming style! Look out opponents!
The Logitech G5 Laser Mouse is a beauty, no doubt about it. Although its price is in the upper bracket for mice, to obtain the ultimate gaming pleasure and performance you can't expect to pay peanuts! Purchase this baby and you won't be disappointed.Features of the Logitech G5 Laser Mouse:
* 2000 dpi laser engine - An ultra-high resolution engine churns images at an astounding 6.4 megapixels per second. A massive (30-pixel by 30-pixel) sensor array and precision laser technology provides best-in-class performance and tracking.
* In-game sensitivity switching - The G5 provides instant access to three sensitivity levels - 400 dpi, 800 dpi, and 2000 dpi - before driver installation. Shift from pixel-precise targeting to fast-twitch maneuvers, without pausing the action.
* Adjustable weight cartridge - Adjust the G5s weight and balance (up to 36 grams) for the control you need to dominate the competition.
* Polytetrafluoroethylene gaming feet - Forget sticky workarounds - the G5's durable polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) feet give the ultra-smooth glide you want in a gaming mouse.
* Full-speed USB - A 500 reports/second, bi-directional connection delivers blazing speed and instant acceleration.
The Logitech G5 Laser Mouse is coming very soon to Mr.Gadget. Sign up for further notification now!

With a 2.4GHz transmitter, sensitivity is excellent with no lag to speak of, making it a dream for gamers. Motion resolution or 'smoothness' is incredibly high due to its 2000dpi laser engine, making it very attractive for those seeking absolute precision like graphic designers.
Like the Logitech MX1000 Laser Cordless Mouse, the G7 has a battery power indicator so you know when you are low on juice. However that's where the similarities end. Instead of a large, ugly, plug-in transmitter hub being present, a small thumb-sized dongle is used - nice! AAA batteries which causes the mouse to be bottom heavy are a thing of the past with the G7 being powered by a replaceable lithium ion battery which is shaped like a small, thin cartridge. As a result, weight distribution is far more balanced. But what's even better is that you receive a second battery along with a battery charger! Whilst you are using one battery, the other is charging. Once the mouse battery is on empty, simply swap batteries over and continue to utilise mousing excellence! This this design is really cool! On top of the battery charger... literally... is a USB 2.0 port. This allows you to plug the dongle into the charger so that the mouse only takes up one USB port on your PC. This just keeps getting better!
For those looking for the pinnacle in controlling excellence and comfort, look no further than the Logitech G7 Laser Cordless Mouse. Do Logitech know no limits to attaining technological excellence - apparently not!
Features of the Logitech G7 Laser Cordless Mouse:
2000 dpi laser engine - An ultra-high resolution engine churns images at an astounding 6.4 megapixels per second. A massive (30-pixel by 30-pixel) sensor array and precision laser technology allow the G7 to deliver best-in-class performance and tracking.
Full-speed USB + 2.4 GHz cordless - 4X faster than conventional mice, USB delivers blazing speed and instant acceleration. With a 5X stronger connection, 2.4 GHz wireless "bulletproofs" the G7 against lags and interference dropouts.
Two fast-swap ultra-light Li-ion packs - Recharging doesn't have to mean pausing the action. . In the default gaming power mode, the battery life will last up to two and a half days for average game play.
Battery-level indicator - The five-level gauge tells you exactly how much game time remains.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) gaming feet - Forget sticky workarounds-the G7's durable polytetrafluoroethylene feet give the ultra-smooth glide you want in a gaming mouse.
In-game sensitivity switching - The G7 provides instant access to three sensitivity levels- 400 dpi, 800 dpi, and 2000 dpi-before driver installation. Shift from pixel-precise targeting to fast-twitch maneuvers, without pausing the action.
Stay posted as the Logitech G7 Laser Cordless Mouse is coming soon to Mr.Gadget!

Well, even the most physical of us drive a car sometimes and I'm sure some Shuffle owners have been looking at all the car charger/FM transmitter choices the other iPod owners have - such as the XtremeMac Airplay and Griffin iTrip LCD, without realising that you have your own elegantly integrated FM transmitter/car charger solution!
The XtremeMac AirPlay iPod Shuffle FM Transmitter is a fantastic integrated solution for the upwardly mobile Shuffle user, which makes all the other iPod and iPod nano solutions seem bulky and cumbersome. The main feature is the Shuffle dock, which houses an LCD screen showing what station is currently being used and buttons for presets and FM station adjustments. Its combined charger/transmitter functionality means that you'll never have to hunt for the charger cable and transmitter ever again!
Features of the XtremeMac AirPlay FM Transmitter for iPod Shuffle

I was also really impressed with the monitor's connectivity. It has both analog (D-sub) and digital (DVI-D) connections for your PC and composite, S-Video, component and Scart for the TV. This gives rise to awesome versatility when plugging in a DVD, VCR, camcorder, or gaming console. It also comes with a FM radio built-in so you can listen to your favourite radio station (FM I hope) whilst on the computer. One thing the 730MW may not be ideal for is gaming. It all depends on what games you enjoy playing. With a response time of 25ms, fps games may give rise to the motion blur. However this shouldn't be a factor with RPG games as much. Overall the Samsung 730MW 17 inch widescreen LCD Monitor/TV is a quality product that gives you versatility and convenience. It would make a stylish addition to any PC/Home Entertainment setup.
Features of the Samsung 730MW 17 inch widescreen LCD Monitor/TV:

Digital TV. The panacea of boob tube lovers everywhere.

What impressed me the most was the performance of the Laser mouse. Laser technology has been incorporated by Logitech, which they say is 20 times more sensitive than optical. I have to say I agree with them. The movement of the mouse is sooooo smooth and precise - no jerky pointer! The mouse is also very comfortable to grip as well as incorporating vertical and side-scroll capabilities and a number of hotkey buttons. What's also cool is the battery-life meter displayed on the mouse. Unlike other mice, you can see when you're running low on juice. So rather than wait for the resultant decreased performance, just pop it in the charger and give it a boost overnight ready to go the next day.
Not to be outdone by the mouse, the keyboard is a delight to use. The buttons are soft to press and you have a number of short keys which you can configure to your liking. It makes navigating windows so easy and efficient! One more thing... if you enjoy fps games, than this is a product you must have! With the precision of the mouse and comfort of the keyboard, gaming pleasure definitely goes up a cog. I can be pretty picking when it comes to technology, but with the Logitech MX 3100 Cordless Desktop, I was left with nothing but a big smile on my face!
Features of the Logitech MX 3100 Cordless Desktop:
Cordless Keyboard Navigation - Sophisticated navigation controls on both the keyboard and the mouse, allowing for more convenient, more efficient, and more comfortable use of your PC. With the ability to scroll vertically and pan horizontally using either hand, tasks such as navigating spreadsheets or editing digital photographs are easier than ever. There's even a "snap back" feature on the keyboard that instantly returns a document to its starting magnification. The beautifully designed cordless keyboard features an ultra-flat Zero Degree Tilt™ profile, a complete array of programmable one-touch controls, and other ergonomic features that increase ease of use and comfort.
Cordless Laser Mouse - The MX 1000 Laser Cordless Mouse delivers a level of performance that no optical mouse can match. Featuring the Logitech MX Laser Engine and 20x more sensitivity to surface detail than optical, laser can track reliably on nearly any surface—even tricky polished or wood-grain surfaces.
One-Touch Media and Application Controls - Media lovers, take control. The included Logitech MediaLife software gives you instant access to what's important by bringing music, videos, images and files together with a single intuitive interface that's accessible from your keyboard. Tap into your favorite streaming audio with convenient radio presets. Stay in touch with one-button access to instant messenger. Launch Microsoft Office applications or open stored files—all without moving your hands off the keyboard.

This one's a beauty, especially in the bianco (i.e. cream/beige) version - everyone who has seen it have commented on how classy and how high quality the leather is. As I have said before, it looks like an expensive wallet, although the bianco version's feel and texture has been likened to a designer Italian leather couch! What better complement could there be?
Not only is the leather and construction exemplary, it also provides excellent protection for the iPod - non-scratch lining, sturdy belt clip and a cut out at the top to accommodate accessories such as the XtremeMac AirPlay.
Same blood, more ambition and a lot more style.
Features of the Booq Venom45 iPod case
- Crafted from the finest U.S. Nappa leather and suede
- Ships with two inserts, lets you achieve a snug fit for any 4G iPod or iPod photo
- Room for top-mounted accessories like XtremeMac Airplay
- Premium light blue stitching and impeccable construction
- Sturdy belt clip wrapped in suede
- Non-scratch lining will protect your iPod
- The ideal gift for anyone with a 4G iPod or iPod photo
One thing worth considering with this case is the tidiness of the wiring. Given the large window, you don't want it looking like a mess inside. Hence hiding unwanted power cables becomes difficult. Given this case doesn't come with a power supply (which I believe is a good option), it would be a great idea to install the Antec NEO480 PSU, so you can discard the unwanted power cables. No doubt the Antec Super LANBOY ATX MiniTower is a great little unit for both the Lan party enthusiast and also those who just want to have a practically packaged, snazzy looking gaming beauty!
Features of the Antec Super LANBOY ATX MiniTower:
- Durable anodized aluminum finish
- Clear side window
- Front ports: 2x audio, 2x USB 2.0

iPod nano Screen Protectors and iPod nano Silicon Cases : All-encompassing protection for your nano!
Now, we all know that the Apple iPod nano is the hottest thing since the original iPod - who couldn't resist the elegance and the slimness of the design? Everyone I have spoken to have been astounded at how small and thin the nano was.
However, ownership of the nano is not all a bed of roses. There have been many reports of unprotected nanos getting scratched, some pretty badly after only a few weeks' use. Especially since Apple don't seem to bundle a case with it, there have been many nanos unnecessarily exposed to the elements.
Considering the controversy with the Apple iPod nano seemingly predisposed to get scratched rather easily, we at Mr.Gadget proudly announce the exclusive distribution of the iPod nano Screen Protector by Expert Shield and iPod nano Silicon Cases by Expert Shield available in both White and Black to suit your iPod nano! They've been a long time coming and, based on the success of our other Expert Shield products, they will provide the best protection for your nano!

I found the design of the case intriguing, yet brilliant. The PSU and hard drive bay is separated at the bottom of the case, with a fan cleverly placed in-between. Given these components produce a lot of heat, by adding the fan and separating them from the motherboard, the temperature around the computer's main circuitry is kept to a minimum. To further quieten your PC down, the sides and top of the case are made from sound damping material, along with having silicon vibration absorbing mounts for the hard drives to prevent resonance. It did take a little longer to assemble my new computer, but it was definitely worth the effort. The end result – a cool, stylish looking, silent, running piece of machinery that purrs effortlessly under my desk as I demand the utmost in performance! Maaaagnificent!
Features of the Antec P180 Advanced Super Mid PC Tower:
- Unique upper and lower chamber structure. The power supply resides in a separate chamber to isolate heat from the system and lower system noise
- Innovative three-layer side panel (aluminum, plastic, aluminum) dampens system generated noise, making this one of the quietest cases available
- No Power supply included. To optimize performance of the P180 the choice of power supply is crucial. Antec recommends choosing from their Phantom, Neo or TruePower 2.0 series.

To be honest, there is nothing in it between the iTrip and the Airplay. You win either way, I suppose the iTrip fits the iPod "aesthetic" better and I admit, it does look better on the iPod, but the Airplay has a much less fiddly way of selecting the station. You choose, it's your choice.

The Gigabyte Nvidia Geforce 6600GT Graphics Card has passive cooling, i.e. no cooling fan. It incorporates heatsink technology only which keeps operational noise to the minimum. One problem encountered with many of the new graphics cards is the size of the heatsink and fan. The cards with the larger heatsinks lead to installation headaches, i.e. the card hits components on the motherboard. Well this isn't an issue, with adequate space at the bottom of the heatsink to avoid any installation problems. Other key features include video input/output and SLI connection. The Gigabyte Nvidia Geforce 6600GT Graphics Card has won a number of recommendations; the highly regarded Tom's Hardware website being just one; and is a great option for those who enjoy 3D gaming and can't afford to spend a ridiculous amount of money to obtain gaming pleasure.

We tested the Sennheiser HD650 Headphones and let me say, I think I know what headphones they listen to in heaven! This thing made a statement as soon as we received the box! Beautiful, foam-lined box, the headphones delicately positioned within the headphone-hugging cavity, protection for $600 worth of headphones doesn't come any better than this. The headphones themselves were finely sculpted plastic, metal mesh and velvet. I was afraid to take them out of the box because one accidental drop - or pulled cable - meant that "you breaks it, you buys it".
After tentatively pulling on the earpieces to get around my big fat head, I put these headphones on my head. Never has any headphone felt so good around my ears, well I guess velvet-lined earcups would do that to someone. Connected it to my laptop and Presto! One of the most magnificently smooth sounding headphones you're ever likely to hear. I would actually go as far as to say that these are the best headphones I have ever heard. EVER.
The sound was so rich, so smooth, so detailed. As per conventional headphone practice, if you burn them in for 50 hours or so, they will definitely sound a LOT better. Also, using a good-quality headphone amp will enhance the sound even further. Although I got to do neither, the sound blew my mind away - it's so hard to imagine that it would even get better than that. After playing a little bit with EQ, I finally satisfied myself with a sound that was clear and plenty of bass. It was so amazingly detailed, that I could pick out the individual instruments within a mix and I could almost visualise the soundstage, as if the instruments were right there in front of me. More seasoned audiophiles would even be able to pick where each instrument would be, but I'm not that good.
This is definitely an audiophile's headphone. Anyone got a spare $600 they can give me?

It's amazing how much LCD technology has come down in price over the past year. To own a good quality, LCD screen used to only be an option for those who had some extra cash to burn.
