Altech lansing 251 speakers

Altec Lansing’s latest submission into the 5.1 market, the 251, is aimed at gamers and movie buffs alike.

The speakers were very easy to set up with colour-coded cables and a helpful user manual. The system boasts an overall continuous power (RMS) of 45W. Each shielded satellite contains a 3in full-range driver and a 5.25in long throw woofer housed in the subwoofer.

The 251 has a silver and black colour scheme, and the main controls are located on the front right speaker, as is a handy headphone jack. The main controls include dials for master, centre and surround volume plus a power switch. The satellites and included centre speaker are the same dimensions and are supported by metal stands; only the surround satellites can be wall-mounted. The subwoofer employs a ported wood cabinet and has a bass level control at the rear.

We tested this setup using the game Soldier of Fortune II and noted that sound effects were extremely crisp and clear. Samples from a synthesiser were also used, bringing forth distinctive highs and lows from the respective speakers.

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.
