Eizo FlexScan S2231W

The picture quality from this 22in screen is sublime and the primary reason for that is its wide colour gamut, which is said to encompass up to 92 per cent of the Adobe RGB colour space. What this means is that it's not your everyday monitor, but is ...

Looking for a new graphics card? Well, Albatron has let the cat out of the bag regarding what its cards based on NVIDIA's new 9800 GX2 graphics processing unit (GPU) will look like. This card looks every bit as mean as some of the games it's been des...

Western Digital My Book Essential Edition

There isn't much to this My Book Essential Edition drive. In fact, it's aptly named as you won't get any unnecessary features or connections. It's small, button-less and, apart from a distinct blue LED, inconspicuous.

Koinica Minolta Magicolor 4650DN

At $1699, the Magicolor 4650DN could be considered a steal. It's a colour laser printer with a good print resolution, which puts to use some nifty technology to ensure that its colour output is vibrant. It's aimed primarily at office environments tha...

Pentax Optio S10

This pocket-sized Pentax camera is very easy to carry with you to all sorts of events and it'll do a good job when shooting scenery or people. It's a no-fuss camera with a 10-megapixel sensor, which captures plenty of detail and warm colour tones.

AOC 2217Pwc

The benefits of upgrading to this monitor are two-fold: firstly, you'll get a comfortable 22in of real estate over which to spread your desktop, and secondly, you'll get a built-in webcam that you can use for video-chatting over the Internet. It's a ...

Eizo ColorEdge CG301W

If graphics or video are serious business to you, then you'll need a monitor that's faultless in its execution. You'll also need a fat wallet with a lot of green notes in it, as it costs a lot to look good, and in that respect, Eizo's latest ColorEdg...

DJ Tech MX-120 USB

If you want to get creative with your music, rather than use audio software to tediously cut and paste wave files into custom mixes, a hardware-based DJ mixer can be a lot more fun. Imagine being able to pack tunes onto USB sticks, then plugging them...

DJ mixing off USB keys

If you're a music junkie you probably own albums in all formats, as well as tape and, if you are really hardcore... Mini Disk!

Much like the lovable pooch who will alert you when strangers wander around the vicinity of your home, K9 Web Protection will bark at kids who try to use the family computer for evil instead of for good.

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 / 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.
