Lexmark X2470

We've become used to printers replacing the universal colour cartridge with individual tanks, allowing you to replace one tank rather than having to junk the entire cartridge.

There's more than Intel inside a PC

IT journalists have devoted plenty of column inches to discussions of Intel's resurgence. From a position of superiority, the chip manufacturer has seen its fortunes dive in recent years. Now though, it's got a trail-blazing chip family and it looks ...

Roxio Easy DVD Copy 2.0 Premier

If there's been a theme running through the major IT innovations of recent years, it's that you should be able to access your data from any location and at any time.

Ulead DVD MovieFactory 5.0

In the same way that countless home-makeover programs have ensured that every house must be in tiptop shape before it can be sold, the combination of today's supercharged PCs and sophisticated software means that our photos and home movies must look ...

Sapphire X1900 XTX

The sceptical customer might expect the X1900 XTX, which follows closely on the heels of the X1800 series, to be little more than a more refined retread of a familiar path. This would be the wrong impression.

Epson Stylus Photo R350

Following on from the soon-to-be-discontinued R310 comes this even heavier-duty photo printer from Epson. It may not be cheap, but you get a host of goodies for your money.

Sapphire ATI Radeon XL

ATI looks to be teeing up its latest batch of graphics chips so here's a little glimpse of what the new-look Radeons promise to deliver. Enter the X1800 XL, which opens the door to an entirely new ATI architecture.

HP Scanjet 4850

One of two new scanners from HP, the 4850 Photo aims to produce high-resolution scanning at an affordable price. Despite its moderate cost, the 4850 has got some heavyweight features and in contrast with the Scanjet 3800, it looks incredibly robust; ...

LG GSA-4167B

For some time now, LG has been churning out prized DVD writers. Combining raw DVD+R speed with decent performance across a range of other formats, LG writers have tended to seal the deal with their enviable price tags, and if that's not enough, LG ca...

HP DeskJet 6540

The DeskJet 6540's biggest selling point is its claim of 30ppm (pages per minute) printing. Speeds quoted by manufacturers should always be taken with a pinch of salt, but while the 6540's real-world performance is almost half the stated speed, it st...

Canon PIXMA MP130

The PIXMA MP130 is Canon's answer to Epson's STYLUS CX3500 MFD (multifunction device), and has a bundle of great features for a fairly modest price.

MFD great for photos: Stylus CX6500

Multifunction devices (MFDs), which print, scan and copy, continue to improve. Notable on this CX6500 is a versatile flash memory interface with built-in support for all major flash formats including CompactFlash, Secure Digital, xD-Picture and Memor...

Affordable alternative?

Thanks to Albatron's quiet triple-fan cooling system (a spare fan kicks in for extra protection when the chip temperature rises to extremes), an overheating graphics card shouldn't be an issue.

Graphics cards: beyond 3D gameplay

The consistent success of the All-in-Wonder range demonstrates that there is life beyond 3D gameplay. With this card you can capture and manipulate live video, listen to radio broadcasts - provided you buy a separate FM antenna - and watch television...

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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 x360

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 910

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.
