Have a look at what we thought were the best home theatre projectors of 2010, as well as the overall best projectors of 2010.

The new Pro8200 uses a seven-segment DLP colour wheel and claims lifelike colour reproduction, using a Pixelworks PW980 video processor that allows 10-bit colour processing as well as a range of other visual enhancements. The Viewsonic Pro8200 is rated at 2000 lumens in its maximum brightness mode, but an eco-friendly mode can also be enabled to cut brightness and extend the projector's lamp life to 6000 hours. A high 4000:1 static contrast ratio means the Viewsonic Pro8200 is suitable for home theatre use.

The ViewSonic Pro8200 has two HDMI inputs as well as legacy analog connectors and a serial port for home automation. Lens shift is available on the 1.5x zoom lens which is manually focused.

The Pro8200 will be available by the end of February.

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.)

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.
