SAST AEP-803 DVD/MP3 player

It can read from copied CD-R discs and also play back VCDs (Video CD) and Super VCDs as well as standard music CDs. When playing back MP3s from CD-Rs, however, you're reduced to having to flick through songs or album folders blindly, in alphabetical order. This aside, the unit worked a treat and the inclusion of a fully functional remote control is a big plus. Flicking through DVD special feature menus or switching between audio CD tracks, for example, can all be done without leaving your comfy couch.

The SAST player has a built-in Dolby Digital decoder for superb sound, as well as DTS optical-digital output, karaoke functions, parental control, multi-angle and NTSC/PAL support. You'll find great connectivity at the back, connections like S-Video out, analog video out, DTS/PCM/Dolby Digital (AC-3) audio out, fibre-optic digital out, coaxial digital out and 5.1 analog audio out (with speaker connections for centre, surround left, surround right, left, right, subwoofer).

The unit is light, but feels well made and looks fantastic. Better yet, at $499, it comes in a little bit cheaper than you might expect for a device with such capabilities.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
