Final Cut Express 4

Scene It?: The Movie trivia Game

The video game peripheral has come a long way since the Nintendo PowerGlove. What was once derided as a tacky 'noobs only' gimmick has somehow morphed into the fastest growing trend in the industry. From SingStar's karoke microphone to Guitar Hero's ...

Hewlett-Packard Pavilion dv6000 (dv6614TX)

CoPilot Live 7

GPS units have made the traveller's life infinitively more convenient; especially for that tragic breed of male who doggedly refuses to stop and ask for directions (i.e. - nearly all of us). For reasons which are far too complex to get into, our manh...

Samsung VP-D371Wi

Canon XH-A1

Ever since the advent of digital video, Canon has been the uncontested king of prosumer level camcorders. From the all-conquering XL-1, to its elite HD successor (Canon XL-H1), the manufacturer has consistently produced the best high-end models aroun...

Sony Bravia KDL52W3100

With December 25th just around the corner, Sony has decided to spread the holiday cheer by slashing the price of its Bravia LCD TV range by a few hundred dollars. This makes the mammoth 52in KDL52W3100 model the ideal gift for an extravagant Christma...

NEC PowerMate P5010

Most PC manufacturers would have you believe they feel nothing but contempt for the Macintosh. And yet, beneath this veneer of smug superiority lies a palpable mix of insecurity and fear. Deep down, they're all jealous of their sleek white rival and ...

JVC GR-D750

On paper at least, the GR-D750 is the unmistakable runt of the JVC litter. With its low image resolution, rudimentary feature set and cheap looking design, we certainly weren't expecting much; yet it turns out that looks can be very deceiving. From i...

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.
