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.

Utimaco SafeGuard RemovableMedia 1.1

It's hard to guard against the loss of USB keys or external hard drives in the workplace, but good encryption means that even if a user does lose a removable drive with valuable data on it, then that data won't be readable.

ASUS L1N64-SLI WS

The ASUS L1N64-SLI WS is the first quad-core-capable motherboard that's available for AMD CPUs. It uses a dual-CPU socket design that can run two separate dual-core AMD Athlon 64 FX 7-series CPUs -- FX-70, FX-72 or FX-74.

Chimei CMV 222H (engineering sample)

For $559, this 22in widescreen LCD monitor is sure to be enticing. It has plenty of inputs, it looks good and, of course, it's big. It hasn't hit our shores just yet; the model we've reviewed here is only an engineering sample. Our tests of this samp...

Seagate FreeAgent Pro

The FreeAgent Pro is a 750GB external hard drive that has a style all its own. It's perfect as a backup drive for a PC, but it can also act as a vast dumping ground for media files.

Gigabyte P35T-DQ6

This high-end Gigabyte motherboard uses Intel's P35 Express chipset and DDR3 memory. To date, it's one of the fastest desktop motherboards that we've tested, but apart from its speed, it has plentiful ports and slots that make it a solid base for a g...

XFX PV-T80F-SHF9

The model name mightn't be catchy, but as far as performance is concerned, the XFX PV-T80F-SHF9 packs a punch. Indeed, it's a fast card that's only let down by a high price tag and poor bundling.

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6800

Not content with already having the most powerful desktop CPU on the market in its Core 2 Extreme QX6700, Intel has released the QX6800, which is a quad-core CPU with a 2.93GHz clock speed. This is 333MHz faster than the QX6700 (which runs at 2.6GHz)...

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.
