The Flip Mino HD has won the PC Advisor Awards 2010 - Best Camcorder award, after being named as the best camcorder to have come through the PC Advisor Test Centre over the past 12 months.

The Flip stole the crown for the best camcorder thanks to its unsurpassed simplicity. It's amazingly easy to use: press its central red record button, then press the play arrow to view or the skip chevron to jump to the next clip. When you've finished recording, flick the catch to release the USB connector; it'll flip out, allowing you to plug it straight into a laptop or PC and view your footage and upload it to the web.

It offers 720p video recording (not full HD, but more than passable video quality) and straightforward viewing and editing software. You can even check your hair in its shiny silvered back, should you plan on appearing in some video footage yourself.

The runners-up in the camcorder category were: Canon Legria HV40, Kodak Zi6, Panasonic SDR-S26, Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
