Acer Aspire 5745DG Review

3D, if you believe the marketing hype, is the future of displays, and so with so many of us sitting in front of computer screens for a fair portion of the day, why shouldn't they get in on the action as well? Acer's Aspire 5745DG promises 3D performance and everyday potency, thanks to a combination of an Intel Core i5 processor and NVIDIA 3D Vision technology, but is this the notebook to get us wearing silly glasses?

Samsung 256GB SSD 470 Series Review

It's not often you find an internal drive where the manufacturer has given obvious thought to aesthetics, but Samsung's new 256GB 470 Series SSD bucks the trend. From its Apple-style packaging to its distinctive casing, the SSD certainly stands out from the crowd. Has Samsung spent too much time on unnecessary design and not enough on performance, though?

Synology DiskStation DS211 Review

Synology DiskStation DS211 Review

The Synology DiskStation DS211 isn't the company's first NAS to cross the SlashGear test bench, but it's perhaps the most home-user focused model so far. A two-bay network-attached backup box, the DS211 also throws in DLNA media streaming duties and cross-platform compatibility. With a diskless retail price of around $320, is this the box you should be entrusting your data security to? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Acer Aspire 8943G Review

Acer Aspire 8943G Review

Acer's Aspire 8943G notebook is about as far from the company's budget netbooks as you could get in a computer and yet still have a battery. A sizeable desktop replacement, with slick, minimalist design and high quality materials, the Aspire 8943G doesn't stint on specifications, either, with an Intel Core i7 CPU and lashings of RAM. Can an Acer PC really compete, not just on performance but aesthetics too, with Apple's well-esteemed MacBook Pro line? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC 7 Surround Review

HTC 7 Surround Review

HTC's play for the Windows Phone 7 market is arguably stronger in Europe, at least at launch, but that doesn't mean the company has forgotten North America. The HTC 7 Surround joins the Samsung Focus on AT&T, launching with the US carrier as the HTC Surround, and will also cross the border to Canadian carrier Telus. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Acer Predator AG5900 Review

Acer Predator AG5900 Review

We've had our fair share of beastly desktops on the SlashGear test bench, but the Acer Predator AG5900-U3092 probably has the most distinctive design. Etched with bright orange pinstripes, the new Predator is pretty striking for its internal components too: an Intel Core i7 chip, fast ATI graphics and more. Check out the full SlashGear review of this $1,350 gaming PC after the cut.
