Panasonic SDR-H40

The SDR-H40 is the entry-level model in Panasonic's new range of HDD/SD hybrid camcorders. Like the H60 and H280, it records standard-definition video to either SD memory cards or an inbuilt hard disk drive (which in the H40's case, sports 40GB of me...

Philips Clock Radio

Over the past year we've reviewed a swag of digital photo frames; ranging from tiny key chain varieties to extravagant 15 inch monsters. In an attempt to try something fresh and different, Philips has taken the basic 'virtual photo' concept and appli...

Panasonic SDR-H280

The camcorder buyer is a somewhat fickle creature. A couple of years ago, everyone and their dog fell crazy-in-love with DVD cameras, a format that shone as brightly - and briefly - as a shooting star. Nowadays, it's all about flash memory and hard d...

Mario Kart Wii in action!

Gamers, start your engines: the world's most beloved multiplayer racer is finally set to rev its way onto the Nintendo Wii.

Panasonic HDC-HS9

The HDC-HS9 is Panasonic's second flagship high-def camcorder for 2008; launching alongside the nearly identical-sounding HDS-SD9. (A note to store owners: expect some confused customers in your foreseeable future.) Unlike its SDHC-flavoured sibling,...

CorelDraw Graphics Suite x4

CorelDraw Graphics Suite x4 is the vector editing application of choice for people unwilling to fork out for an expensive Adobe software bundle. Unlike Adobe Illustrator, which is a stand-alone drawing application, x4 is an all-in-one suite; combinin...

Samsung VP-HMX10 (XSA)

After a frankly ridiculous amount of procrastination, Samsung is finally set to release its first ever high-definition camcorder, the VP-HMX10. As implicated by its low price tag, the HMX10 is very much a budget-orientated high-def model aimed square...

Power Charger (BCG-34HLD)

When it comes to cool gear, the Sony Power Charger (BCG-34HLD) isn't exactly what you would call an 'exciting' piece of hardware – not by a long chalk. With its rather drab purpose and even drabber appearance, it certainly isn't something you'd...

Lumix DMC-FS3

The Lumix DMC-FS3 is the obligatory runt of Panasonic's new compact 'FS' camera litter. It sports an 8.1-megapixel sensor and 3x optical zoom (as opposed to the Lumix DMC-FS5/DMC-FS20's 10.1-megapixel sensor and 4x optical zoom). While it doesn't qui...

CrazyTalk5 Pro

CrazyTalk5 Pro is the latest and arguably greatest version of Reallusion's quirky 'face puppet' animation studio. If you've never heard of CrazyTalk before, it basically lets you create a talking three-dimensional avatar from any photo or image (BMP ...

Sony Xacti VPC-CA65 (EXW)

Midway through last year, we reviewed Sanyo's Xacti VPC-CA6; a water-resistant flash memory-based camcorder that seemed to be tailor-made for the encroaching holidays. While it performed adequately for a standard-definition camera, the image quality ...

DMW-MCFS5 marine case

The majority of consumer-level underwater cameras are, to use the technical term, a bit rubbish. Because they are 'niche' products with a limited user base, most vendors are hesitant to invest in production costs, resulting in cheap models with rudim...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-SF20

In recent years, it has become customary for camera manufacturers to release a tiered range of models at barely distinguishable prices; presumably in an attempt to cover every shopper's budget. For proof, look no further than the Lumix DMC-FS20, a pr...

Panasonic DMC-FS5

It doesn't take a genius to know what makes a good compact camera. Along with decent battery life and a slim, lightweight design, the primary ingredient is the ability to take great looking photos - and here's the important bit - with a minimum of fu...

Panasonic SDR-SW20

As we enter the simmering heart of summer (it says here), most camcorder enthusiasts would rather be swimming in the water than shooting on land. On the one hand, beach and poolside frolics offer a perfect opportunity for memorable home movies, but o...

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.
