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

CDstar is the new kid on the block in Australia's online CD retailing market. Competing against the comparably longer-established music e-tailer ChaosMusic, CDstar offers a fresh-looking Web site with well-organised content and a large selection of product.
The prices are reasonable if you consider that most Australian music CDs are still retailing at around $29.95, and CDstar's average price seems to be $24.95. Of course, due to freight costs, the savings don't kick in unless you buy several CDs at a time.
Like ChaosMusic, CDstar enables visitors to enter their own music reviews. The main difference between the sites seems to be Chaos' openness to independent and rising artists, while CDstar has a strong focus on the top 50 and new releases. - Molly FurzerWish Listwww.wishlist.com.auShopping for a present and no idea what to get? Wish List may have the answer.
Wish List is a Melbourne-based e-tailer specialising in making gift-finding easier. You can do a keyword search or browse the site's products by the recipient (i.e., grandmother, brother, daughter), by gender, or by department (like sporting goods). Members (it's free to register) will receive discounts on some items, and can also create a wish list of their own using the gift registry service. - Molly Furzer
