Compaq P720

WHAT'S HOT: The P720 has an attractive black-and-silver case and eight buttons on its panel. The control buttons combined with a fairly intuitive menu make the P720 easy to use. Image quality is excellent, with sharp text on our desktop and on Microsoft Corp. Word documents, as well as vibrant colors in our on-screen photos.

WHAT'S NOT: Like most professional monitors, at US$329 the P720 is more expensive than the average model we've tested (about 25 percent).

WHAT ELSE: One of the control buttons governs the Fine Picture Mode, which lets you automatically improve the picture with one touch. Turning on the Fine Picture Mode brightens the image on the screen. The main menu identifies settings with icons only, which can be confusing, but once you choose a menu item, submenus use words that clearly explain your choices.

UPSHOT: The P720 offers great-looking images and text quality, and easy-to-use controls, for a somewhat high price.

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.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
