Corsair sound system, laptop HDD, Motorola Atrix 4G webtop

Corsair has been expanding its entry into the audio market with the Corsair SP2500 2.1 speaker system, which HardwareHeaven reviewed. It received a rating of 10 out of 10 on almost everything except value, which got 9 out of 10, ultimately securing a Gold Award. Build quality, design, and performance were seen as top rate.

TweakTown reviewed the Zalman ZM1000-HP Plus 1000W power supply unit, giving it a rating of 89 percent. It was praised for high performance and almost complete silence, but its high price and low build quality lost it a few marks.

HotHardware brings news of Western Digital’s latest hard drive, its 750GB Scorpio Black HDD, a 2.5-inch 7200RPM internal drive for laptops, one the largest capacities and fastest speeds available for the portable market. It also comes with a 16MB cache, Advanced Format technology and a reasonable price tag of $149.

AnandTech got some hands on time with the Motorola Atrix 4G webtop, a Tegra 2 smartphone that can be docked into a netbook for a very different experience. With a 36Wh battery, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage, expandable to 48GB and the option to dock to the webtop for a larger Android experience or even have Windows 7 streamed over the web, this could make an interesting replacement for a standard netbook.

Tom’s Hardware has a feature on the best value graphics cards in different price ranges. The AMD Radeon HD 4650, HD 4670, and HD 5670 stole the show in the under $100 section, while two Radeon HD 6870s in CrossFire were seen as the best option for those with a much higher budget. Price ranges between are also covered.
