Would you buy this?

Although the model name has remained the same, ViewSonic has released two versions of the 19" VP912. In the more recent revision, the company replaced the antireflective screen with a new, antiglare screen. When we tested it, the first version had outstanding performance for in both text and graphics. The newer version, though still an excellent performer, fell short of its predecessor, earning a very good rating in both text and graphics performance tests.

The new VP912b showed crisp text on our test screens. We liked the colour balance that the VP912b showed in our test screen of a group photo, and its depiction of a brightly coloured fruit tart was appealing. The new VP912b performed well in all our graphics tests. Aside from the screen, the new VP912b is identical to the old one. Dual-monitor users will appreciate the thin bezel, which minimises the interruption between images. The height, swivel and pivot adjustments let you set the monitor to the most comfortable viewing position; and a PerfectPortrait pivoting driver comes with the monitor. The VP912b's on-screen controls include five colour presets. This strong feature package and still-solid image quality enable the new VP912b to retain the honours won by its predecessor.

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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
