After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Sparkle isn't a popular brand in the US but they have some very unique products.  Their specially designed cooler can be adjusted to provide better cooling when the GPU is under load.  A new feature on the high-end models is a thermally responsive motorized fan that will lift the fan "wings" automatically when the temperature reaches a certain level.
    Cuti is not just the name of your significant other but can also be a media center in your living room.  This Atom based device isn't being sold as a PC but works much like any other media based HTPC we know today, just in a smaller package.
    Multi monitor setups are a great timesaver but there are still computers in use that do not support the technology or do so in a very difficult manner.  Well Sparkle is offering a USB video device that will allow you to add up to 6 monitors or your PC and use each of them as an extended desktop.  Don't expect to play any games on these but for 2D productivity apps it can be a lifesaver.
    You can expect to see more from Sparkle in the future, now all they need to do is become active in the US again.
