Bottom Line

Although this is a small and cheap player, SanDisk has sacrificed advanced customization options to compete at this price.

    $ 239.00 (AUD)

The SanDisk Sansa c150 is a small music player aimed at the budget market. With 2GB of storage, a colour screen and support for viewing photos, it offers reasonable value for money.

Compact with a black and silver finish, the c150 is slightly larger than a USB flash drive, and this is because of the AAA battery compartment at the back. Weighing a tiny 46 grams with battery, the c150 sports a colour screen and easy to use control set, but the player itself doesn't feel solidly constructed.

The 1.21" CSTN colour screen does make a difference to this unit, especially when compared with the Sansa m260,, but with the c150, Sandisk has made this easier still. On the front of the unit next to the screen are a five way keypad and a power button, which also serves as the menu button. These two buttons are all you need to operate the c150, while a volume button and hold button round out the control set. Pressing the menu button any time displays a rather intuitive menu system, with large colour icons for Music, FM Radio, Voice Recording, Photos and Settings.

The Music options on this player allow you to adjust the basic equalizer, determine tracks to play by Album, Genre or Artist and set playlist options such as Shuffle or Repeat. Like the Sansa m260, used a standard mini-USB connector, the c150 uses a different kind of connection, although it is still USB2.0.

Like the Sansa m260, offered a reasonable 19 hours of battery life, the c150 provides only 15 hours, meaning you will buying new batteries at regular intervals.

Dynabook Portégé® X30L-G notebook

I have had the pleasure of owning notebooks from Dynabook’s predecessor Toshiba for both work and leisure in the past. Toshiba’s attention to quality of build and design of the notebooks is second to none. The re-branding to Dynabook and the launch of the new range was completed in early 2019. I am pleased to confirm that not only did Dynabook further refine what Toshiba has left off; they have set a new benchmark for the ultra-light notebook category.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
