Vizio P50 HDM

The first thing to understand about the Vizio 50-inch P50 HDM is that it's a plasma HD monitor, not a full-fledged plasma HDTV. This means that it forgoes an analog NTSC tuner and a digital ATSC tuner, instead requiring an external tuner to display a...

HP announces 30-inch LCD monitor

If you've been torn between Apple's 30-inch Cinema HD Display and Dell's UltraSharp 3007WFP, your decision isn't getting any easier with HP's upcoming 30-inch wide-screen. HP just announced the LP3065, a business display specced out with an unusually...

Viewsonic VX2025wm

Think you can't afford a 20-inch wide-screen monitor? Consider the moderately priced ViewSonic VX2025wm. You'll find 19-inch regular-format monitors that cost more. However, at the same tim, you'll find little to draw you to the VX2025wm beyond the s...

Acer Ferrari F-20

The Acer Ferrari F-20 is impressive. This 20 inch widescreen monitor looks gorgeous and sleek, and its display quality is quite high.

ViewSonic VP171b

With physical adjustments including tilt, height, and swivel, ViewSonic's VP171b is comfortable to work with. Along with a pivoting screen--handy for scrutinizing full pages of letter-size text documents--the VP171b comes with Perfect Portrait, ViewS...

HP iPAQ Hx2755

HP's iPAQ Hx2755 packs plenty of processing power and RAM, and its simple design makes it easy to use. The unit's most notable shortcoming, though, is also its most distinctive feature: a biometric fingerprint reader.

IBM ThinkVision L190

The IBM ThinkVision L190 is as simple as an LCD monitor gets. This analog-only model takes a just-the-facts-ma'am approach, eschewing advanced extras in favor of simplicity and a low price. As its boxy, businesslike shape suggests, the L190 performs ...

BenQ FP91V+

Most glossy screens show remarkably crisp text and saturated colour, and the bright, "polish type" screen on the BenQ FP91V+ is no exception, producing excellent results in our tests. On text, the BenQ, though less of a standout, still performed very...

Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW

At its native wide-screen resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, the Dell 2405FPW showed remarkable colour and clarity. On test screens, text looked sharp, and images looked crisp and saturated. The 24" wide screen performed particularly well on our Web p...

Samsung SyncMaster 243t

Samsung's 24" SyncMaster 243t has no desire to be a TV; it just wants to be a great monitor. It's one of the few wide screens we've tested that offers no component, composite or S-Video inputs.

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.

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.

Aysha Strobbe

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.
