Philips Micro MP3/CD Hi-Fi System

Further bridging the gap between MP3 technology and the mainstream consumer base is Philips's new MC-M250 Micro Hi-Fi System. It's a funky looking unit (whose yellow speaker grills were not too popular with people who saw it in our lab), but its size and functionality make it a good choice for a small bedroom or any other area of the house where space is at a premium. Measuring 26x22cm (DxH), the unit is ideally designed to fit in places such as bookshelves.

It comprises a radio tuner, tape deck and (of course) a CD/MP3 player, which can also recognise CD-RW discs. Its top loading design allows smaller 8cm discs to be played, too.

Also spanning technologies, the unit allows you to make compilation tapes from the CD player at the touch of a button - it seems the good old tape isn't completely off the radar of the major companies. MP3 playback is aided by the large screen that displays ID3 tag information. The two-way speakers provide adequate sound quality and power handling from their small enclosures.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
