Recently we had the opportunity to tour Samsung's white goods showroom, including spending some time with the impressive Black SPACE SRS683GDHB refrigerator. According to Samsung there has been an increase in demand for black home appliances and so the company has delivered a number of them in different home appliance categories.

The Samsung Black SPACE SRS683GDHB refrigerator, apart from looking rather handsome, boasts some impressive technology. Ultra-thin insulation in the interior of the fridge boosts internal storage: according to Samsung it increases capacity from an average 600L to 684L.

Samsung's 'Twin Cooling' technology separates the fridge and freezer coolers. For A conventional refrigerator cycles cool air from the fridge up into the freezer, which carries along with it the odours from fresh food and can make your frozen goods smell funky. Also in a conventional fridge, the constant cooling of moist air from the fridge to the freezer requires more energy consumption and increases the likely hood of items like steak getting 'freezer burn'. According to Samsung, its 'Twin Cooling’ technology ensures fridge and freezer temperatures are maintained independently so that items in the fridge retain their moisture and freshness while frozen goods don’t end up smelling stale.

The fridge features an easy access hatch for items like milk or cold drinks. The drink hatch is a small door panel that means you won't need to open the whole fridge. This saves energy by reducing the loss of cool air. The hatch flap can hold up to 70kg of weight.

LED lighting is featured in the Samsung Black SPACE SRS683GDHB. LEDs require less power than incandescent lighting. The Samsung Black SPACE SRS683GDHB has ‘tower’ lighting reaching from the bottom to the top of the refrigerator so that every part of the fridge is well lit. LED lighting in Samsung fridges has a lifetime warranty.

The Samsung Black SPACE SRS683GDHB has a drink and ice dispenser is built into the door rather than the top shelf of the freezer, which frees up more space on the shelves for frozen goods.

The fridge is priced at $3299.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
