ABC's iView

The Web-browser-based iView program is the latest video-on-demand venture from the nation's ABC television network. With arts, documentary, news and a host of other programs on demand, there's plenty of content available to any user with a sufficient...

Sony Bravia KDL52W4000

Sony's KDL52W4000 is an exemplary Full HD panel. It's surprisingly slim, with great contrast and brightness and a price tag that is actually quite reasonable for the quality offered. It doesn't handle lower resolution content particularly well, but i...

Geometry Wars 2: Retro Evolved

The original Geometry Wars was best known as a mini-game available from the Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360. The next incarnation -- predictably enough called Geometry Wars 2 -- offers new gameplay styles and even prettier graphics. It's as yet unk...

LG DP392G

LG's DP392G is designed for use both in the home and on the move, incorporating the features and styling of a digital photo frame into a portable DVD player. It handles both roles admirably, only being hampered by the lack of a screen cover.

Samsung NV4

Samsung's NV4 is the company's attempt at an entry-level multimedia convergence device. It has a slim form factor and takes decent quality photos, but it's let down by a small screen, strange controls and an inferior lens.

LG HT903WA

If you've got a larger-than-normal TV room or don't like lengths of unsightly cable then salvation comes in the form of wireless home theatre. LG's HT903WA sounds decent and can handle a variety of home entertainment tasks while offering the convenie...

JohnBlue JB3

JohnBlue's JB3 bookshelf speakers are incredibly versatile, far beyond what you'd expect from their tiny size. They can handle everything - from high notes all the way down into lower bass registers -- smoothly and competently. If you're looking for ...

Kingrex T20

Kingrex's basic Class T amp is enigmatic. It's tiny, but it has enough power to easily drive efficient speakers to uncomfortable volume levels. It's a solid-state amplifier, but it has the warm sound of a vintage valve amplifier. It's not a one-size-...

Sam And Max: Season One

Sam & Max: Season One was released in mid-2007 on PC platforms, but until now there's been no hope for console players. With a release scheduled for Nintendo's Wii platform in late August, players will soon enough be able to experience the newest inc...

Sharp XL-UH2080H

Sharp's XL-UH2080H hi-fi system is small but it packs quite a punch. The little component system is user-friendly and simple to set up (despite being slightly restrictively cabled) and has plenty of inputs. The system doesn't have the volume to fill ...

BenQ W500

The budget brother of BenQ's W5000 and W20000, the W500 has great specs for its price. It's not as colour-perfect as its brethren and not as easy to set up, but it's still a great option to be the backbone of a budget home cinema.

Teac DVP904

Teac's DVP904 is a budget portable DVD player, although it also features an external audio and video input. As a DVD player for in-car use it works well, thanks to the 9in screen and competent stereo speakers. The system is compromised by a noisy DVD...

The audio-visual experience of the future

For consumers still living with a standard-definition television, DVD-quality video is generally accepted as good enough. For the latest whiz-bang high-definition plasma, Blu-ray or HD-DVD is optimal. But what does the future hold?

Fallout 3 banned in Australia

Fallout 3, the long-awaited third instalment in the gritty, post-apocalyptic Fallout series, has been banned from sale within Australia.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
