Motorola's T325 Bluetooth speakerphone has basic features but it is well designed and effortless to use. Incoming audio could use a volume boost, but calls are clear and the T325 functions well.

Designed to clip to a car sunvisor, the Motorola’s T325 Bluetooth speakerphone can also sit on a desk. Its square grey case has rounded edges and is dominated by a large call button. The call button is accompanied by a power switch, mute and phonebook button, and side-mounted volume keys.

Operation is dead simple — simply turn the T325 on by holding down the power switch for a second or two and the unit automatically enters pairing mode. Once paired with your phone, the T325 Bluetooth speakerphone will automatically download your phonebook, allowing it to read out the names of incoming callers. This is a one-off process the first time you pair your phone with the unit. The T325 will pair with any phone that has Bluetooth, including the iPhone.

Once connected, operating the Motorola T325 Bluetooth speakerphone mainly involves the call button. This button answers and rejects incoming calls, activates voice dialling (if your phone supports this function), and redials the last number you've called. The Motorola T325 also stores up to 25 of your most frequently dialled contacts, which can be accessed by pressing the mute/contacts button until you hear the name you want to dial. It isn't the quickest process, especially if the number you wish to call is at the end of the list, but it's effective for four or five frequently dialled phone numbers.

A neat feature is the automatic power off/on function. The Motorola T325 turns off when your phone is out of Bluetooth range, but turns on automatically as soon as you are in range again. Each time your phone connects to the T325, the unit announces the current battery level: very low, low, medium or high. Motorola claims the T325 will provide up to 17 hours of talk time on a full charge.

Call quality is excellent considering the price, and our callers were impressed with both the clarity and volume of outgoing audio. Incoming audio is a mixed bag; we had no troubles hearing a relatively clear voice, but the volume could use some extra punch despite the presence of dual speakers. Even at the loudest setting, we often struggled to hear with the car windows down.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
