Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1

Sony's CyberShot DSCH1 is obviously going after the same buyers targeted by Panasonic's FZ5. Both feature SLR-like styling, two-piece clip-on lens hoods, image stabilisation, 12X optical zoom lenses and five megapixel sensors. Both also tout a full s...

Olympus E-300 Digital SLR Camera

Olympus introduced its new 4/3 open digital standard last year with the E1, its first digital SLR. While the E1 was a good camera, in a market dominated by the battle for the consumer rather than professional digital SLR (DSLR) dollar, at $2,999 it w...

Mediagate portable MPEG player

Portable media players that let you view pictures and movies, or listen to your MP3s are certainly sexy little toys, if a little on the expensive side. But if you are willing to do a bit of tinkering and dispense with brand-name build quality, you ca...

Rome: Total War

Rome: Total War is a glorious game. The third instalment in the Total War series builds on the game mechanics of its predecessors, adding both more tactical and strategic depth and throwing in fully 3D graphics for good measure.

JVC digital video camera GZ-MC200 Everio

JVC's GZ-MC200 Everio camcorder takes an interesting approach to the problem of storing large amounts of high-quality video on digital media. Where some camcorders, such as Sony's DCRDVD201E, have renounced DV tape in favour of 8cm DVD discs, they su...

Samsung Digimax V50

Samsung's top of the line Digimax V50 is a 5 megapixel, $699 camera sporting a 3x Schneider-Kreuznach zoom lens. The lens, with a 35mm equivalent range of 38mm-113mm isn't going to let you grab close-ups of wildlife, but it's good for standard snaps....

Kodak EasyShare DX7590

Kodak's $699 Easyshare DX7590 offers great flexibility thanks to its 10x Schneider-Kreuznach (35mm equivalent 38mm - 380mm) zoom lens, which lets you cope with pretty much anything you'll come up against.

Fable

Fable, a landmark effort from Lionhead Studios, succeeds where many computer RPGs fail; namely, it makes you feel like you're participating in the creation of a great story.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War is based on the Games Workshop universe in which factions of Space Marines, Orks and others do battle in the 41st millennium. But even if you're not an anorak-wearing member of the Warhammer fraternity, there's plenty to...

Zoo Tycoon 2

Zoo Tycoon is one of those rare games that transcends age barriers - it can be played by six-year olds and thirtysomethings with equal passion. It's spawned several add-on packs and now it's about to get a complete makeover with Zoo Tycoon 2.

PC Games: Splinter Cell-- Pandora Tomorrow

Many shooters have used stealth sequences to good effect, but few took stealth quite as seriously as Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell, in which black neoprene-clad secret agent Sam Fisher stalked his way through tricky situations with the aid of night-vision ...

PC games: Homeworld 2

Homeworld 2 is less a sequel to 1999’s Homeworld than it is a refinement. It’s got a new plot that weaves through 15 single-player missions but other changes are more subtle, so when it comes to most aspects of game play, it looks and feels so much l...

STYLISTIC Q702

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

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.
