Samsung DVD-R130

Samsung's DVD-R130 is the little brother of its DVD-R135. Although sporting different outfits, both are essentially the same machine, with the primary difference being the lack of HDMI on the DVD-R130.


The LG-RH1999G is a good system, sporting a wide range of recordable DVD formats, DivX support, SD and MD memory card, HDMI out and 250GB of hard disk storage space.

The Samsung LA40M61B is the 40in version of the [[prodid:2086]] LCD television that we reviewed in July. With identical specifications, it was no surprise that both units performed identically, with the same strengths and weaknesses. Its picture qual...

Blu-ray of hope for Samsung

Superb video and audio quality at a steep price...that's my immediate take on the Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-ray player. Of course, a mix of factors is likely to drive the price down in the not too distant future.

Philips GoGear SA1335

Philips' last entry into the portable multimedia space, the [[prodid:1775]], was a fairly competent device, but it didn't particularly impress us. Their latest effort, the 1GB GoGear SA1335, goes some way to improving on its predecessor, providing th...

RIM's Pearl reinvents the BlackBerry

The BlackBerry has always been a status symbol as much as a technological innovation. "I'm a business person, with business needs. I need to know immediately when trouble's brewing," your typical business user might say.

Sony DCR-DVD755

The Sony DCR-DVD755 is a DVD camcorder which offers good colour reproduction but has image noise levels that cause graininess in the video. While extras such as a surround microphone and touch-screen LCD are nice inclusions, the video performance wei...

Nikon Coolpix L4

The 4 megapixel Nikon Coolpix L4 is an entry level digital camera that really exemplifies the saying 'you get what you pay for'. On one hand the image quality was just average and the feature set a little lean, but on the other, the sub $300 price ta...

Casio projector offers quality images

Road warriors, take heed: Casio's US$1699 Cassiopeia Pro Super Slim XJ-S35 is the thinnest business projector I've reviewed. A scant 1.7 inches tall by 10.6 inches wide by 7.8 inches long, this 3.9-pound, 1024-by-768-resolution (XGA) model is the siz...

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
