- Wide range of formats supported, tablet design, larger screen than most
- Slightly low contrast, tinny sound
Some clever design features like dual headphone outputs and swivel screen make up for a lack of volume from the in-built speakers and some minor contrast issues.
Price$ 999.00 (AUD)
DVD players are popping up in an ever-increasing number of luxury cars as a way to keep the kids quiet on long trips, but Toshiba's SD-P2700 portable DVD player offers a more flexible alternative to fixed players.
The small unit measures 26 x 3.5 x 19cm, and features an 8.9" TFT screen running at a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. The design looks like a small tablet PC, and the screen can be rotated 180 degrees from its default clamshell position. The silver unit sports a top-loading DVD drive and buttons on the right. There are also buttons on the side of the screen so you can control playback when you the screen is pivoted.
The unit supports more than just DVD video; it can play back WMA and MP3 audio, as well as JPEG images and DivX video. The side of the machine features a SD/MMC/MS slot for flash memory, so you can also view images on the screen.
The bundled 1.5W stereo speakers are a bit tinny, but there are dual headphone sockets, so two people can share a screen or listen to music. Video playback quality is good, and the unit remained stable and responsive during testing. No playback glitches became evident while watching DVDs, and the machine supports DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, DVD-R, Video CD, CD-Audio and CD-R/RW media. The contrast is a little low, and black looks more like a dark shade of grey.
Aside from being able to play DVDs on the screen, there are also S-Video, component and composite outputs so you can use the unit as a conventional DVD player. There's also a composite input and the machine ships with a small remote control, making it ideal for people that travel extensively (and those who don't want to watch hotel in-house movies).
The bundled 4800mAh battery powers the unit for a little more than three hours of playback, which should be adequate for most occasions. A car adapter is also bundled with the kit so you don't have to worry about running out of power while driving, and the package comes with a one-year warranty.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
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.
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.
