Portable USB sound card

There aren’t many ways to upgrade your sound card without opening your PC case and confronting the jumble of wires and fragile components inside, but the team at Creative has managed to come up with one.

Slick new iPod even better

Apple makes the best hard-disk-based MP3 players, and the company’s redesigned, third-generation iPod elegantly drives home that point.

GriSoft Anti-Virus

We’ve all heard of McAfee, Symantec, Trend Micro and Sophos. GriSoft is perhaps a less well-known name in the field of corporate antivirus packages but this doesn’t mean it’s a lightweight company with low-end products.

Comfortable, sturdy camera: LS633

A good camera should feel com­fortable and sturdy, and Kodak’s latest offering is both. It is solidly built with an impressive range of features, but it is a little heavy (210g).

Eye catching flat-panel: X215

The X215 is quite simply the sexiest flat-panel we’ve reviewed. There’s a real lack of ostentation in the sleek minimalist design, and the blue-tinted glass front serves a purpose beyond aesthetics, incorporating AG Neovo’s own display-enhancing tech...

Following on from our review of the preview version of Enter the Matrix (ETM) in the April issue, we took a look this month at the full release of this important title.

In the Best Buys section in the November 2003 issue of PC World (starting page 125) we reviewed a selection of the latest entry, mid-range and high-end graphics cards to hit the market. As we couldn't fit all of those cards we initially tested in the...

Cylindrical sound device

The cylindrical JNC SSF-302 digital audio player is a cinch to use and has extensive functionality. It offers MP3 and WMA playback, has built-in FM radio, and also acts as a data storage device.

PC Games: World Championship Snooker 2003

A new snooker world champion, Mark Williams, was recently crowned following a nail-bitting final in the 17-day world championship series. The 2002 champion, Peter Ebdon, was challenging for the title and I, for one, was surprised he didn’t win again,...

Xbox: ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth

If you had a Sega MegaDrive in the early 1990s, chances are you'll have heard of ToeJam and Earl. The coolest aliens in the galaxy provided me with many hours of fun, laughs and funky tunes in my youth. So when I heard that they were going to make an...

PC Games: IL2-Sturmovik: Forgotten Battles

Initially conceived as an expansion pack for the brilliant IL2-Sturmovik, Forgotten Battles took on a life of its own and became a stand-alone project for Russian developer Maddox Games. As a result, it doesn’t have the groundbreaking impact of the o...

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

Andrew Grant

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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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.
