SAST AEP-803 DVD/MP3 player

It can read from copied CD-R discs and also play back VCDs (Video CD) and Super VCDs as well as standard music CDs. When playing back MP3s from CD-Rs, however, you're reduced to having to flick through songs or album folders blindly, in alphabetical order. This aside, the unit worked a treat and the inclusion of a fully functional remote control is a big plus. Flicking through DVD special feature menus or switching between audio CD tracks, for example, can all be done without leaving your comfy couch.

The SAST player has a built-in Dolby Digital decoder for superb sound, as well as DTS optical-digital output, karaoke functions, parental control, multi-angle and NTSC/PAL support. You'll find great connectivity at the back, connections like S-Video out, analog video out, DTS/PCM/Dolby Digital (AC-3) audio out, fibre-optic digital out, coaxial digital out and 5.1 analog audio out (with speaker connections for centre, surround left, surround right, left, right, subwoofer).

The unit is light, but feels well made and looks fantastic. Better yet, at $499, it comes in a little bit cheaper than you might expect for a device with such capabilities.

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.
