Cons

  • No time shifting, networking is too complicated

Bottom Line

The DViCO TViX PVR M-5130SH is a useful device for those who love downloading video and audio files from the Internet. Being able to play them on your TV is great and with the new PVR features, you can watch and record digital television as well.

Would you buy this?

The DViCO TViX PVR M-5130SH is the consumer version of the M-4130SH PVR media player. It has the same functionality but is aimed at the consumer market with a cylindrical design and an integrated 320GB hard drive.

Designed as an alternative to a media centre PC, it is an all-in-one device that can record HDTV or display an extremely broad range of audio and video file formats. In addition it can stream from other PCs over a network or read files from external storage devices via the provided USB slots.

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
