Samsung Instinct S30 Review

Samsung Instinct S30 Review

As mentioned before, the Samsung Instinct S30 is the followup to Sprint’s most popular phone from last year. Originally, the Instinct was positioned as an iPhone killer. While that never actually happened, the Instinct was a great phone in its own right; easy to use, reliable, and offering a good user experience. I mean, I use one. Sprint and Samsung released the S30 to follow up on the goodness that the first Instinct brought them. While there are only a few differences between the previous generation and the S30, the new model fills a crucial role for Sprint, especially with the imminent release of the Palm Pre.

ASUS Eee Top ET1602 Touchscreen Nettop Review

ASUS Eee Top ET1602 Touchscreen Nettop Review

At first glance, ASUS' Eee Top ET1602 is the epitome of a niche product.  Packing nettop-spec hardware in an all-in-one form factor, with a touchscreen and general design that seem to have stopped by HP's TouchSmart and the Apple iMac along the way, it's certainly tough to pin down.  Innovative new segment or just another Eee oddity: SlashGear set to finding out.

Palm and the Treo Pro: my farewell to you

Palm and the Treo Pro: my farewell to you

Palm finally came clean on the Treo Pro smartphone this week, after a variety of leaks and PR blunders tipped customers and media alike to the handset's existence. Running Windows Mobile 6.1, Palm describe the Treo Pro as "innovative and elegant" and are quick to cash in on the company heritage. Strip away the PR hyperbole, however, and it's questionable what you're left with. Far from innovative and 133g of cheap-looking plastic away from elegant, lined up against rivals this "new" Treo looks shabby before its even out of the gate.

He Said, She Said: Fashionable Netbook or second-hand Laptop?

He Said, She Said: Fashionable Netbook or second-hand Laptop?

Last week's "He Said, She Said" editorial pitted Brenda and I against each other discussing what sort of touchscreen device Apple might have on their cards.  This week, it's something equally as topical here on the frontpage of SlashGear: netbooks, or budget ultraportables.  They're the niche of the moment, certainly, but are consumers really getting the best value for their hard-earned dollar?

SlashGear Review – NZXT Sentry LX

SlashGear Review – NZXT Sentry LX

When you're overclocking, or even just have a higher-end gaming rig, you probably like to know just how hot things are getting inside your case. More so with overclocking, as you tend to run the risk of pushing your components a little to far and frying them due to the excessive heat. Usually your motherboard will come with a nice hardware monitoring utility, but I don't generally like those, as they take up valuable real estate on my desktop. Not to mention you can't always check temps during a gaming session without minimizing your screen. I prefer hardware gauges, such as the new Sentry LX from NZXT, which I have had the pleasure of using.
