Big and beautiful 22in CRT

Mitsubishi’s Diamond Pro 2070SB, with its Diamondtron Aperture Grille picture tube, provides great colour and image quality. It boasts plenty of screen real estate, too, giving the user a viewable area of 20in at a recommended resolution of 1600x1200 at 85Hz. The monitor can be adjusted beyond this resolution to a maximum of 2048x1536 at 85Hz, at which text was surprisingly readable and only slightly blurry. Unlike LCD monitors, screen geometry is not perfect with a CRT, but this model produced great screen framing and its lines were only slightly curved at the edges.

Text was quite sharp and screen brightness and contrast were outstanding. The comprehensive on-screen display lets you change the geometry over a wide range of angles and manually adjust the colour for all channels in small increments. Colour convergence can be tweaked.

In our tests, colour convergence was very good, although slightly off at the edges of the screen. This is typical of CRT monitors, as convergence can never be absolutely accurate across the whole screen.

The rear of the monitor holds two VGA ports for dual PC inputs, and there is also a USB hub. For the professional user or the keen game player who wants a very large and good quality screen, this one will fit the bill nicely.

In brief: Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2070SB

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

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.

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.

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.
