Sharp BDHP20X

Sharp's BDHP20X is a mid-range Blu-ray player, delivering a reasonable array of functionality, along with a nifty feature or two. Lacking support for a few of the higher-end audio codecs, the BDHP20X nevertheless delivers fully-fledged video performa...

Logitech Z-Cinema

Logitech's Z-Cinema Advanced Surround System is a set of 2.1 PC speakers with SRS TruSurround HD technology, which simulates a 5.1 surround sound environment. Although we found the speakers themselves to generally be of quite high quality, the includ...

Pioneer VSX-LX60

Pioneer's VSX-LX60 is their new, high-end AV receiver, designed primarily to take advantage of the new age of high definition. Sporting HDMI 1.3, 1080p upscaling, and full support for the new high definition audio formats, the LX60 is supremely 'futu...

Samsung HT-TX500

Samsung's HT-TX500 is an all-in-one 5.1 home theatre system, including a DVD player and receiver. With a whopping 1000W of power, a strong bass and mid-range, and 1080p DVD upscaling, the TX500 is highly suited to action movie buffs. A fairly weak tr...

Toshiba SD-P1900

Toshiba's SD-P1900 is a mid-range portable DVD player. It lacks the resolution and video quality of high-end models, but comes at a reasonable price and delivers a solid functionality, without any major flaws. Video quality is satisfactory, although ...

Panasonic DMR-EX77

Panasonic's DMR-EX77 is a DVD/HDD recording combo, with an inbuilt standard-definition digital tuner. It's capable of upscaling DVDs to 1080p, which is a slightly strange inclusion, considering that the digital tuner is only standard definition. Half...

Pioneer BDP-LX70A

Pioneer's BDP-LX70A is a high-end Blu-ray player, geared towards enthusiasts. As with other similarly high-end players, it attempts to distinguish itself through its audio features and performance, whilst maintaining the already high standard of vide...

Harman Kardon AVR 245

Harman Kardon's AVR 245 is one of their entry level amplifier/receivers. It's important to note, however, that for a brand like Harman Kardon, 'entry level' is still built to a very high standard. The amp is capable of 50W per channel at 8 ohms, driv...

Toshiba SD-P2900

Toshiba's SD-P2900 is the company's flagship portable DVD player. With a 10.2in screen, 800x480 resolution and a jam packed feature list, it's quite a respectable model. The high price tag is its biggest drawback, but for users looking for everything...

Toshiba HD-EP10

Toshiba's HD-EP10 is a mid-range HD-DVD player. Although it includes several features above and beyond what the HD-E1 offers, it doesn't include the full bevy of options that the flagship model, the HD-XE1 does. Nevertheless, it represents an attract...

Harman Kardon HKTS 11

Harman Kardon's HKTS 11 is a 5.1 speaker set. Although at first glance, the price seems quite high, especially considering the need for a separate receiver, the system quite comfortably justifies it with its outstanding audio performance. A high powe...

Sony CMT-HX5BT

Sony's CMT-HX5BT is a Bluetooth-capable Mini Hi-Fi system. With an AM/FM tuner, CD player, and USB and auxiliary ports, the HX5BT is capable of handling a very wide range of sources. Its audio performance doesn't quite deliver the same levels of vers...

Creative Gigaworks T40

Creative's Gigaworks T40 speakers are, as the name suggests, the upgraded version of the Gigaworks T20. The speakers are primarily taller, to allow room for a second midrange driver above the tweeter. While audio is very similar to the T20s, the T40s...

Creative Inspire T10

Creative's Inspire T10s are a pair of stereo speakers, designed for PC and MP3 use. Their musical performance is quite respectable, but ultimately let down by weak bass. Nevertheless, their excellent midrange redeems them quite a bit, making them a s...

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.
