Creative Zen 20GB

New Creative Zen 20G looks more like a voltage meter than the last word in high-fashion e-wear, although it's otherwise a very fine product.

NEC NDRV-60

In the NDRV-60, NEC has produced a beautifully integrated and extremely well designed combination VCR and DVD-recorder. Yes--it records to DVD as well as VHS, and can write (and re-write) to DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R and DVD+RW discs.

Sanyo HV-DX300A

We had some trouble coming to a conclusion on the Sanyo HV-DX300A. It gets some things annoyingly wrong, but then has some very good features to make up for it. It has no S-Video output, for instance, but does have excellent progressive scan support....

Samsung DVD-V5500

The Samsung DVD-V5500 comes across at first as an entry-level product, designed for those who find tuning and programming a VCR a task of Herculean proportions. It's not flashy or particularly stylish. It has a simple setup, a solid remote with large...

Panasonic DMR-ES30V

With the DMR-ES30V, Panasonic has come as close as anything in this category to a perfect rating. It's an excellently designed combo device, incorporating a powerful DVD recorder and a no-expensive-spared VCR, with a user interface that is second to ...

Sharp DV-NC200X

With a feature set almost identical to that of the Samsung DVD-V5500, the Sharp DV-NC200X is not at the pinnacle of either DVD or VCR technology, but it does a passable job at both.

Foxtel iQ

Acting as a replacement for your Foxtel Digital set-top box, the Foxtel iQ has two enormous advantages over the digital PVR competition: it's the only one that supports the capture of digital pay TV, and it's the only current PVR that incorporates a ...

Kaon KTF-570H

Although not heavy on the frills, the Kaon KTF-570H SD Personal Video Recorder is an easy-to-use digital PVR and set-top solution.

Toshiba HDD-J35

It's not a pretty device, looking rather like the twin of a VHS player my parents bought in the late 80s--and having an on-screen display that looks like it comes from the same era--but under the hood, the Toshiba is quite the beast. It's a rare full...

Topfield TF5000PVRt

A dual-tuner SDTV PVR, the Topfield TF5000PVRt is, in fact, a Masterpiece. It's an outstanding product, extremely well engineered and thought out. It has a few gremlins, but is certainly one of the best PVRs on the market today. It even looks good, w...

OpenTel ODT 4200PVR

With an 80GB internal hard disk and the most basic of feature sets, the OpenTel ODT 4200PVR is not going to set anybody's world on fire. It's serviceable, however, as long as you're not a huge fan of timeshifting.

Humax PVR-8000T

One of a new breed of digital PVRs, the Humax PVR-8000T acts as both a digital set-top box and video recorder, storing recorded movies on its internal 80GB hard disk. It's not the most extraordinary of PVRs, nor a particularly capable digital set-top...

Hauppauge DEC2000T

One of the most unusual PVRs you can find, the Hauppauge DEC2000T is not actually a PVR at all, but a combination of digital set-top box and digital PC TV tuner. It has no integral hard disk, but can store recorded movies on your computer's hard disk...

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.
