Leadtek PX6600GT TDH
- Very impressive software bundle
- Poor performance in some of our tests
A card with decent performance and a very good software bundle.
Price$ 495.00 (AUD)
Unlike most of Leadtek's performance products, which feature extravagant cooling designs, the PX6600GT TDH has a modest heat sink and fan assembly cooling its 500MHz 6600GT GPU and no cooling at all for the on-board 128MB of GDDR3 memory. This memory runs at 1GHz.
Most the Leadtek's scores in our benchmarks were competitive, although it did provide a sluggish result in a high-quality 1280 x 1024 Doom 3 test.
Although a little expensive, the card comes with a comprehensive set of bundled software. It ships with several games, as well as muVee autoProducer3 video editing software, a software DVD player and the WinFox II management utility, which allows you to monitor your card as well as manipulate its speed.
High-definition output via component cables is a standout feature of this card, along with DVI. Cables and adapters to use these ports (component cable, DVI-VGA adapter) are supplied.
This package is a bargain if you are after a decent-performing PCIe card and are also interested in the bundled games and video editing software.

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.
As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.
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.
