Philips DVD recorder

Squarely aimed at the consumer market as a VCR replacement, the Philips DVDR 890 gives you the opportunity to record all your favourite TV programs (or other video sources) onto DVD+RW (or DVD+R) discs at the quality setting of your choice.

There are six video modes to choose from, ranging from HQ (high quality) to EP+ (extended play), giving you a recording time between one and six hours, respectively. Once a DVD+RW disc is recorded, it can immediately be watched on almost any other stand-alone DVD player or PC DVD-ROM drive without the need for any finalisation process.

Connectivity on the back of the unit is provided for by a TV aerial, S-Video input and output, RCA video and audio inputs and outputs as well as a coaxial digital audio output. In addition, the front of the player conceals a DV input (FireWire) as well as another S-Video input and RCA video and audio inputs.

The control buttons on the front of the unit are well spaced. Buttons for all major recording functions - such as video mode - and a great big record button help you to record quickly and easily.

The player features Progressive Scan playback (for both PAL and NTSC formats), which doubles the vertical resolution of a picture. It also supports a glut of playback formats, including SVCD - even MP3 discs.

Philips DVD recorder Price: $1999.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

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

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
