When the Pentax *ist DL came into the office, the first problem we encountered was exactly how we were going to talk about it. How does one pronounce *ist DL? Browsing the Internet revealed everything from "star-ist-dee-ell" to "eye-ess-tee". We here...
Compared to some other digital SLRs--such as the bulky Fujifilm FinePix S2 Pro or the heavy Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D--the Nikon D70s feels small and lightweight. The D70s fits comfortably in the hand and weighs only 800 grams without a lens.
Configuring security for home wireless devices used to be a difficult task. You needed to be an expert in networking in order to set up a simple home router, and as a result, many people didn't bother to configure security at all. In fact, as testame...
Nikon's D50 is yet another model that falls into the cracks between the advanced and professional cameras. It offers a full range of manual controls while retaining enough automated functions to allow a user to gradually step up the amount of involve...
People who want secure remote access to PCs at their home or small business while on the road typically turn to services such as GoToMyPC and PCAnywhere, but those options can get expensive with multiple users and PCs. Buffalo Technology offers an ec...
Although many of the digital SLRs that we have tested have a plentiful supply of buttons, the Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D probably has the most: 24 dials and buttons spread around the camera. But this approach has a big upside: it makes the controls muc...
Only the most serious photographers would consider spending such a large chunk of cash for just the body of the FinePix S3 Pro, but if you already had an existing stash of Nikon-compatible accessories, it could make a good addition to the collection....
Unsecured wireless networks can pose a serious risk to small to medium businesses. Irrespective of how well locked down the wired network may be, all a user has to do is install a rogue access point at their desk to expose the corporate network.
The FinePix S2 Pro is a heavyweight in every sense of the word. At 900 grams for the body alone (with batteries), it is one of the heaviest cameras we've reviewed. It's also one of the biggest.
Sporting an 8.2 megapixel CMOS sensor (twice the resolution of the original EOS-1D), the Canon EOS-1D Mark II is capable of capturing 8 megapixel JPEG images at 8.5 frames per second in continuous bursts of 40 frames, or RAW images in continuous burs...
The PDP-435HD displayed DVDs and standard definition TV with finesse. For high-definition content, however, the Pioneer was disappointing, largely for its lack of ability to display detail--the hallmark quality of HD.
The Sony MDREX81SL in-ear headphones are an excellent alternative to the poor-quality earbuds that are included with most current MP3 players on the market.
Rich colours, bright images, and good detail helped the 42" 42PF9966 display both standard definition TV and DVDs in excellent quality. Its high-definition quality was a bit lower, but still respectable.
The SXH2 headphone amplifier has a lot to live up to on the musical reproduction front. The SXH1 drove a pair of Sennheiser HD-600s like they were born to it. In anticipation of even better from the new boy, I plugged in a fresh pair of Sennheiser HD...
This is the panel for image geeks. It has very good image quality, and outstanding HDTV display.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
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.
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.
