Budget LCD projector

Toshiba's TLP-S10 tackles the competition head on with a $2099 price tag. Cheap it may be, but the TLP-S10 is still feature-packed. At 2.2kg it's the most lightweight model in its price range and has a brightness rating of 1200 ANSI lumens.

23 inch Flat-Panel Display

Despite its glorious 23in screen space, the L2320A is just 6.6cm thick and its 14.4kg frame makes it relatively comfortable to carry over short distances.

Top DVD writer

As with most new DVD writers, the DRU-510AK supports both DVD+R/RW and DVD-R/RW. The user-friendly DVD-RAM standard has been omitted, but with DVD+RW and DVD-RW both supported, users are unlikely to find media becoming obsolete any time soon.

Multiformat DVD writer

Not that long ago, the debate among DVD enthusiasts was which writeable format would win out. LG’s new DVD writer is compatible not just with the major DVD+R/+RW and DVD-R/-RW formats, but also with the increasingly obscure DVD-RAM.

Compact and light display: SyncMaster 172T

Samsung has long specialised in that irresistible combination of ravishing case design, high-calibre image quality and a beautifully pitched pricing strategy. The SyncMaster 172T is another winning model that gives the competition plenty to chew on.

True flat panel colours: Neovo

Buying on looks alone can land you in deep water in the IT market, and in no area is this more true than the flat panel sector. At first glance the Neovo looks every bit the office essential — its polished glass screen and fold-down stand both sugges...

Useful label printer

Compatible with PCs and Macs, the Dymo LabelWriter has connections for both USB 1.1 and standard serial ports. The operating system treats it like any standard printer, so it’s not only compatible with all Windows applications but it can be shared ac...

Good value 17inch LCD

Although it’s not the least expensive 17in model on the market, the $1179 LCD1760NX offers good value and quality.

Minolta-QMS MagiColor 2300W

The MagiColor 2300W, Minolta-QMS’ latest addition to its range, is in essence a stripped-down version of the 2300 Desklaser.

Teac DV-W50EK DVD drive

The fight for supremacy in the DVD writer market has taken another twist with the release of Teac’s latest drive. The DV-W50EK boasts 4x DVD-R capabilities, making it (on paper at least) one the fastest drives we’ve seen yet. The drive also reads CDs...

HP psc 2210 multifunction device

One of the new breed of multifunction devices (MFD), the HP psc 2210’s elegant design distances it from the habitually bland models that proliferate on the market. That’s not to say that the 2210 is all about looks. Printer, scanner, copying and fax ...

LaCie Data Bank external hard drive

Just when you thought that the complex world of portable storage devices was getting less confusing, along comes LaCie’s Data Bank to blur the issue afresh.

Lexmark X5150 Multifunction device

Manufacturers may be pushing the boundaries of what features can be provided within a single MFD, but there will always be a market for traditional no-frills devices like Lexmark’s X5150. This product combines inkjet printing, scanning and copying fa...

NEC MultiSync LCD1760NX

NEC’s NX range specialises in offering high-quality flat-panels that aren’t going to stretch the finances. The $1179 LCD1760NX is a case in point. It’s surprisingly good value in light of its expansive 17-inch viewing area.

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.

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.
