Essential HDTV accessories

An HDTV is just a TV with a pretty picture until you add a few important accoutrements. The dozen add-ons shown here will greatly enhance your HDTV watching experience.

Wall Mount: Samsung WMN-5090

Samsung's WMN-5090 wall mount uses motors for tilting and swivelling, and it connects to your television's RS-232 port so that you can adjust the screen's movements via on-screen controls. It can store three positions in its memory, too, which means that you can program it with one setting for when you're watching from the couch, another for when you're watching from the kitchen, and another for when you just want to discourage other people from watching it, for example. The wall mount automatically senses where the wall is to prevent the set from crashing into it.
Unfortunately, this particular model works only with 40- to 52-inch Samsung plasma and LCD sets that are equipped with an EX-Link connection, and it costs about US$800. But it'll wow your guests and scare your cat.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

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


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.

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.
