What's the best way to charge your mobile devices?

You're packing for a trip. You've already crammed the chargers for your smartphone and laptop into your bag, but your tablet charger is MIA and you're debating whether to bring along a spare charger for your laptop--just in case.

Olympus FE-120

You might assume that a budget camera like the Olympus FE-120 takes subpar photos. But you'd be wrong: In our tests this 6-megapixel unit delivered very attractive photos, earning top points from our jury of reviewers, who were impressed with the ac...

High definition's real meaning

I've been spending some quality time with the high-definition Sony HDR-HC3 over the past couple of weeks, and I think I might have to do something that we professional writers don't like to do: admit that I may have been wrong.

Sony DCR-DVD403

Once, DVD-based video cameras were the poor cousin of tape-based cameras. That's not so anymore. In our tests, the Sony DCRDVD403 as had excellent overall quality, capturing strong, bright colours and smooth movement in both indoor and outdoor lighti...

Sony DCR-DVD803

In our tests, the Sony DCRDVD803 produced excellent results, capturing strong, bright colours and smooth movement in both indoor and outdoor lighting.

Nikon D70s

Compared to some other digital SLRs--such as the bulky Fujifilm FinePix S2 Pro or the heavy Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D--the Nikon D70s feels small and lightweight. The D70s fits comfortably in the hand and weighs only 800 grams without a lens.

Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D

Although many of the digital SLRs that we have tested have a plentiful supply of buttons, the Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D probably has the most: 24 dials and buttons spread around the camera. But this approach has a big upside: it makes the controls muc...

Fujifilm FinePix S2 Pro

The FinePix S2 Pro is a heavyweight in every sense of the word. At 900 grams for the body alone (with batteries), it is one of the heaviest cameras we've reviewed. It's also one of the biggest.

ASUS MyPal A730

The MyPal A730's 3.7" screen is one of the best-looking PDA displays we've seen, with bright, vivid colours and sharp text. It's also one of the few PDA screens with VGA (640 x 480) resolution. The A730 runs Windows Mobile 2003 OS Second Edition, whi...

Sony DCRHC42

Although the Sony DCRHC42 is a lightweight in both price and heft, it's far from lightweight in quality. The DCRHC42 produced great-looking video in our tests, with smooth movement. It also captured strong, accurate colours, even under difficult ligh...

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.

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.

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.
