Sorry for the lack of news lately, I have to stop going out and drinking so often. Anyway, Accelenation's Tuan Huynh has posted a review of the Abit Media XP. The Media XP is a cool new type of device seen by serveral different companies earlier this month at Computex which has front mounted USB 2.0 and Firewire connectors as well as front audio and flash memory readers and even memory stick support. I got to get me one of these!
"The Media XP is nothing more then a device that installs in a 5 ¼ inch drive. The faceplate of the Media XP is the typical beige color that we knowand love oh so much, luckily for those of you who like to paint your case, the front cover is easily remove able. Unlike other similar drive bay accessories such as the Soyo Sigma Box, the Media XP provides more then just front mounted USB and Firewire ports. While the Media XP has front mounted USB 2.0 and Firewire connectors, it also provides front audio and flash memory readers."More information at Accelenation.
