    HIS HD7950 fan rattle

    'lo all. I have a HIS HD 7950 IceQ BOOST which has developed a rattly fan. If you are unfamiliar with it, it has one of those radial impeller type fans. any ideas on how to fix this rattle, or replace the fan cheaply? I'm flat broke, so my options are rather limited when it comes to buying...

    What about older Canon cameras?

    the 1000d sits between the 400d and 450d. it shares some features with each. having owned a 1000d, its a very capable body and though it feels a little plasticy, is well put together and fairly robust. if you can get one second hand, i'd definitely recommend it. TG

    Camera for Product Photography

    you wont get the 'pre adjusted' image through the viewfinder on any dslr, as you are getting the image straight through the lens bounced off a mirror to the viewfinder. the live view on my 50d definitely shows how the image looks with white balance adjustments (i just tested it). live view is...

    Spec me a mono laser printer

    we use hp 4000, 4100, 4200 at work, and they are real workhorses. the 4000s are still going strong and they are ancient! the 4200/4250 seem to go through a lot of service kits (rollers/fusers etc) comparatively, but they are in bank branches and do a LOT of work.
