Creative gives DVD an encore

PC audio and video specialist Creative Technology yesterday released its new PC-DVD Encore 6X Dxr3 kit aimed at adding high-performance DVD (digital video disk) entertainment capabilities to standard PCs.

The PC-DVD Encore 6X Dxr3 (dynamic extended resolution) features Creative's latest decoder card, the successor to the Dxr2 decoder card. Video quality has been significantly enhanced with this revision, and coupled with the PC-DVD 6X drive offers a powerful PC-DVD solution, Creative said in a statement.

The kit addresses multiple segments of the PC market with the latest DVD technology, including the entertainment enthusiast, home PC user and PC gamer, Creative said. PC-DVD Encore 6X Dxr3 delivers storage capacity of up to 17G bytes of data, enhanced full-motion, full-screen video plus Dolby Digital (AC-3) audio, the company said. Included in the PC-DVD Encore 6X Dxr3 kit is the PC-DVD 6X drive, with a maximum transfer rate of 8.1M bits per second for DVD-ROM data and 24X for CD-ROM data.

Creative said that Dxr3's architecture features six-tap filtering and scaling techniques to eliminate combing effects or artifacts that may appear around quickly moving objects, giving users sharper video and clearer imaging; Windows resolutions of up to 1,600 x 1,200 at 85Hz, a significant increase from the Dxr2's 1,280 x 1,024 resolution; and direct connections to a TV with S-Video or Composite outputs.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
