Banksia PMP20

The PMP20 was Banksia's first foray into the growing portable multimedia player market. It features a large 20GB hard drive from which you can play videos and music and view photos. You can also record TV to it. However, this model is let down by poo...

Archos AV 700

The Archos AV 700 Mobile Digital Video Recorder can be used to listen to music, watch videos, view photos and, best of all, record directly from DVDs, CDs and live TV. However all this functionality comes at a price, as the bulky AV 700 is not design...

Toplux M260

With its glossy mirror-like reflective screen, the 256MB Toplux M260 MP3 player is as much a fashion accessory as a music player. But looks aren't everything, and this feature-packed player is designed with convenience in mind.

Sony NWE405 Walkman

Like the tiny 1GB NWE107, the 512MB NWE405 continues the Sony tradition of delivering very compact, flash-based music players with excellent battery life.

beyerdynamic RSX 660

Beautifully designed, the beyerdynamic RSX 660 wireless headphone system includes very comfortable, well-padded closed cups and a highly adjustable padded bridge; readily accessible tuning and volume controls; and a slick look that matches the best w...

TomTom Go 500

The mid-range TomTom GO 500 is remarkably similar to the entry-level GO 300. Sporting the same (slightly bulky) frame, the same software and the same features, the two units are only differentiated by cosmetic software changes and Bluetooth handsfree...

Tom Tom Go 500

Boasting a bright 3.5" touchscreen LCD, easy to use software and Bluetooth capabilities, the TomTom GO 300 is one of the most impressive GPS units we have seen so far.

Navman PIN 570

Navman has seamlessly combined both PDA and GPS features in the Personal Interactive Navigator (PiN) 570, which makes an ideal travel accessory for professionals on the road.

Mio DigiWalker 268

As a standalone GPS unit, the Mio 268 does the job, but a series of minor bugs and lack of customisation options should compel you to consider other brands.

Mio DigiWalker 136

Released in February this year, the Mio 136 (a member of the Mio DigiWalker range) is a pocket sized GPS ideal for either in car or outdoor use. Unlike larger and bulkier models, such as the GARMIN StreetPilot c320, the Mio 136 has the form factor of...

Garmin Streetpilot c320

Those on the lookout for a reliable GPS unit with an easy-to-use interface need look no further than the GARMIN StreetPilot c320. The c320 is designed for using your fingers on the LCD touchscreen--no fiddly stylus input here. With its large buttons,...

Sony Ericsson P910i

The feature-rich P910i was the most advanced Sony Ericsson on the market at the time of writing this review, and is heavily modelled on its successful predecessor, the P900.

O2 Xda II Mini

Achieving the right balance between size and functionality has long been the challenge with smartphones. O2 has just about got that balance right with the Xda II Mini, providing all the features of a tri-band smartphone packed into a case only slight...

O2 Xphone II

At 107.5 x 44.5 x 18mm and weighing only 102g, the Xphone II is much sleeker and slimmer than its predecessor. It's a small tri-band smartphone that is ideal for those wanting a mobile phone with additional PDA capabilities.

O2 Xphone IIm

The O2 Xphone IIm retains all of the features of its predecessor (the Xphone II) while adding a new case, dedicated multimedia buttons and a newer version of Windows Media Player.

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.

Andrew Grant

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
