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.

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.
