Mindscape Australian Infopedia 3.0

Australian Infopedia 3.0 should in theory be a great product. It brings together a plethora of useful reference tools into one easy to use package. There's an encyclopedia, dictionary, thesaurus, atlas and even a medical guide. Better still, this is ...

Onkyo HT-S780

With games consoles, DVD players and AV receivers all vying for a place under the TV, it can be a hassle setting up a home theatre system. Knowing which units go with what and trying to assemble all the components can be a trying experience for the a...

Harman Kardon AVR 340

In an age of home theatre, where it's possible to have a DVD player, VCR, Playstation, XBOX, set top box and a multitude of other devices all hooked up simultaneously, your poor old television may be groaning under the strain of all those cables. The...

Philips DVDR3360H

Philips' previous DVD/Hard Disk recorder, the DVDR560H, was our all time favourite in this category. So we were eager to see what Philips had done with the updated model, the 3360H. While the DVDR3360H is still just as good as its predecessor, the re...

LG LF-U850

These days it seems it's all about USB. Mobile phones, digital cameras, games consoles; you name it, they've got a USB connection. Up until fairly recently, the home entertainment world has been missing out on all the fun but has now managed to catch...

Mindscape SpongeBob Squarepants Typing

Learning to touch type isn't necessarily top of every ten year old's list of fun things to do. In fact, we'd be surprised if it was even in any ten year old's list of things to do. Learning how to type correctly may not be as useful as learning a for...

Sony DCR-DVD705

There's an interesting balance to consider in the world of DVD camcorders at the moment. Basically, they can all be lumped into two camps. On the one hand you have the small, sleek camcorders that cost about $1000. They're nice to hold, though the qu...

Grundig Ovation II

The Ovation II is another of Grundig's "lifestyle" micro CD players, representing a small step up from its sibling, the ingeniously named <a href=";2136212614;pid;1714;pt;1" target="new">Ovation I</a>. W...

Sony DCR-DVD805

Sitting roughly in the middle of Sony's new lineup of DVD camcorders is the DCR-DVD805. The new wave of DVD camcorders has finally managed to catch up with the performance of Mini DV tapes, at least for the most part. At the consumer level, the diffe...

JBL L890

Batten down the hatches, the JBL L890s are in town. This mean pair of speakers certainly packs a punch, so be prepared for some complaints from the neighbours if you push the L890s to their limits. The L890 is at the top end of JBL's new Studio L ran...

Pioneer PD-F507 25 Disc CD Player

In an age where music is increasingly being found on iPods rather than the old faithful CD, it's easy to forget that most people still have dozens of these small plastic discs hanging around. One of the most convenient aspects of the iPod revolution ...

Grundig Ovation

When you wake up in the morning, we think you'll agree with us that it's not always nice to be greeted with the piercing shriek of your alarm clock. Do you also find that on a Sunday morning, you'd like to listen to some music, but the idea of going ...

Laser 5.1 Home Theatre Speakers

At the GoodGearGuide, we've recently had a whole raft of expensive home theatre systems in the office. They may be very nice, though not everyone can afford, nor wants to splash out $2000 on a set of speakers and a DVD player. If you want the thrills...

Laser USB PC Webcam

The idea of being able to hold a video conversation with someone on the other side of the world is a nice one. These days it's all too easy with the cost of webcams falling and their availability increasing. For many people, a webcam isn't going to b...

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


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


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


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.
