New glimpse of Diablo 3

It’s been a long time coming, but the wait is… not over yet. Set to be released some time in 2009, Diablo 3 is the sequel to the massively popular Diablo and Diablo 2 games on the PC platform. Stunning graphics set the game apart from its ancestors; ...

UFO, sheep and the 'Mother Flocker'

Philips HTS6100

The Philips HTS6100 is a sound-bar system with the added attraction of decent low frequency response from a dedicated subwoofer. It performs well in terms of sound quality and its virtual surround settings are surprisingly convincing.

KingRex UD-01

The UD-01, KingRex’s mid-priced USB digital audio converter, offers a sizeable leap in sound quality over a PC’s on-board sound solution, but you’ll need an equally high-quality system to take advantage of it.

Iomega ScreenPlay HD

Iomega is a company best known for its storage solutions — capacious, speedy devices with plenty of connectivity. The ScreenPlay HD stays true to this ethos, but doesn’t back it up with much in the way of media playback support.

Fallout 3 to go on sale in Australia

After a fortnight of confusion, the highly anticipated video game Fallout 3 has been approved for sale in Australia by the Office of Film and Literature Classification.

LG XA63

The XA63 is yet another mini hi-fi system in a market packed with near-identical models. It's a solid performer with decent but unremarkable sound quality.

Yamaha Soavo 2

The Yamaha Soavo 2 speakers have a bookshelf design, but you'll need some very spacious shelves to accommodate these monsters. They sound very balanced, and, while they may not be the best choice for music lovers, they would excel as part of a surrou...

Sony MDRAS100W

Sony has a history of creating out-there, contemporary headphones and this pair is no different. The two in-ear plugs produce lively, involving sound and the headband does a good job of keeping the headphones securely attached. The downside of this u...

Lehmann Audio Black Cube Linear

A headphone amplifier like Lehmann Audio's Black Cube Linear amplifier is a necessity if you're using high-end, demanding headphones like AKG's K701. However, this amplifier will still offer greatly improved sound quality with mid-range headphones.

Fallout 3: new screenshots unleashed

We've already shown you what Bethesda's take on the state of the world in the year 2277 is like. You've already seen the devastation, decrepit scenery and mutants. Well, there's now more to see. Recently released on to the Internet, these new shots s...

Philips 42PFL9703D

Philips' latest 42-inch LCD offers good picture quality and plenty of digital inputs in a design suited to modern decor. It's not perfect, however, with a 100Hz mode that doesn't work quite as well as expected and not enough support for analog conne...

Creative EP-830

Creative's EP-830 headphones occupy that difficult point within the portable audio market &#8212 not ridiculously expensive and audiophile-grade, but not bargain-basement cheap like the bundled headphones of most MP3 players. They err on the side of ...

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

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!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

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.
