DVD Collector

For aficionados of movies on DVD, the ability to manage large collections easily is a must. Enter DVD Collector, a donation-ware program created by Australian developer CrunchyMedia, which aims to do just that with its intuitive and well designed interface.

An online database from www.michaeldvd.com.au allows you automatically to download information pertaining to each of your discs, and is a great time-saver. Manual entries can also be made if your DVD isn’t in the list (as many overseas titles are not), and you can then contribute that information to the online database.

A wealth of information is provided for the discs, including technical specifications and cast details. Cover images for DVDs are not stored on the online database (See here for a screenshot). There is support for images, though; all you have to do is specify in which folder they are contained and make sure you assign the correct one (front and back) for each disc. You can even track the number of times you watch each disc, and create good-looking HTML reports (with or without frames) via the import/export function.

All up, a nicely-featured, great little program for the seasoned or even novice DVD collector, which is easy to use and free for download.

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.

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.
