TI Computers Quad Core

This PC from TI Computers contains all the necessary ingredients for today's power-hungry high-end users. Its Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU (2.4GHz) gives it plenty of horsepower for rendering videos and multitasking, while its two 150GB Western Digita...

Fujitsu Lifebook U1010

Computer miniaturisation has been taken to a whole new level by Fujitsu, with the company's ultra-portable U1010 tablet PC measuring only 17cm x 13.5xm x3cm (WxDxH) when closed (or in tablet mode) and weighing a barely noticeable 600g. Its swivelling...

LaCie d2 Blu-ray Drive

LaCie's external Blu-ray writer can connect to a PC or notebook via USB 2.0 or FireWire. It's a solidly-built device that sports LaCie's usual hard aluminium casing and it's a big unit so it's a bit of a desk-space hog. But, the upside is you won't h...

ASUS EN8600GT OC Gear

When it comes to graphics cards, choosing one card over another is usually determined by price. However, ASUS wants to make you think about that decision a little longer. Its EN8600GT OC Gear card ships with a separate module that allows you to play ...

Gigabyte P35C-DS3R

It's a somewhat transitional period for the PC market at the moment due to the fact that DDR3 memory has been introduced for the latest Intel Core 2 CPUs. Since it's still in its infancy, and still very expensive, when building a new PC with an Intel...

SyncMaster 275T

Thinking of getting a big monitor? Then try out this 27in monster from Samsung. It has a native resolution of 1920x1200, so it can display full high definition content (1080p) with ease (albeit with 120 lines of resolution left over, so you'll still ...

LG Flatron L226WTQ-BF

The LG Flatron L226WTQ-BF isn't an extravagant 22in widescreen monitor, but it does sport a thin bezel and a flashy stand. It lacks USB ports and its stand isn't height-adjustable; it only allows for tilting and swivelling.

Philips Brilliance 200WB7

From the get-go, this 20in monitor's image quality looked impressive, but tests with DisplayMate highlighted a couple of issues with its greyscale and black level.

Acer 2223w

By default, this 22in monitor is very bright, but it has a black level that is set too low. It takes a little bit of fiddling with the luminance controls to come up with a picture that doesn't compromise subtle colours, but even then, it isn't perfec...

HP w2207

Physically, HP's w2207 22in is an impressive specimen. It's got a stand that can swivel, tilt, rise and rotate (it can be viewed in portrait mode, which is perfect for working on long documents); it's got a built-in USB hub for up to two devices, and...

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850

Motherboard vendors have been touting 1333MHz front side bus (FSB) support for their latest motherboards in preparation for Intel's new line of CPUs and, finally, a CPU that can run at this speed has been introduced. Users running a motherboard with ...

Gigabyte MA69GM-S2H

For a quiet media centre or a silent PC, an inexpensive AMD-based system is still an attractive option and Gigabyte's MA69GM-S2H motherboard reinforces that fact. It has a micro-ATX form factor, so it can be installed in a mini-tower ATX case or even...

LG GSA-H55L

LG's GSA-H55L burner offers more than just an increase in speed over its predecessor, the GSA-H42L. It also ships with the latest version of Nero Essentials, which features SecurDisc - a security technology co-developed by LG and Nero to keep your da...

QNAP TS-109 Pro

QNAP's TS-109 Pro is a network attached storage (NAS) enclosure that can house one 3.5in Serial ATA hard drive. It doesn't come with a hard drive, so users can install the capacity of their choice, up to 1TB.

ASUS WL-600g

If you're looking for an all-in-one networking device, the ASUS WL-600g isn't a bad choice. It's a solidly built unit with plenty of features, but its user-interface could be a little clearer and its FTP server function is limited.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

Anthony Grifoni

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.
