beyonwiz DP-P1

Recording on the DP-P1 is a simple and well integrated affair. While it lacks a few of the features that full-blown PVRs may sport, such as one-touch recording, it's nevertheless a highly functional and efficient recording device. The time-shift buff...

Logitech Squeezebox

When Slimdevices released its third iteration of the Squeezebox network media player in 2005, we instantly fell in love with it. It managed to be both the simplest and most effective device we'd seen at the time. So when the news came that Logitech w...

Ruckus MediaFlex VF-2825

The Ruckus MediaFlex wireless router, while not technically a media streamer itself, is a device intended to facilitate wireless streaming of media (videos and music) throughout the home. The easiest way to think of the MediaFlex is probably as a way...

Sony BDP-S1E

Sony's decision to wait before releasing a dedicated Blu-ray player in Australia may have surprised some observers. After all, they developed the technology. However, their release of the BDP-S1E should put any fears to rest; it's one of the best pla...

Pioneer BDP-LX70

Pioneer's first entry into the Australian Blu-ray market is an interesting one. With a mid-level price point and media streaming functionality, it seems as though it'll become somewhat of a niche product, catering specifically to those looking for a ...

Canon MD120

Canon's MD120 is a low level MiniDV camera that, while delivering relatively poor image quality, comes with a price and ease-of-use that makes it a reasonable recommendation for beginners. A good option for newcomers to the world of digital video, or...

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
