A generic monitor not specifically designed for photography isn’t going to deliver the colour quality we seek. Processing images on the BenQ SW271 gives the user a stunningly vivid colour range.
EA Games Burnout Paradise
- The open-ended world offers up a lot of possibilities; the crashes, a series hallmark, are just as impressive as they were in past instalments; the sensation of speed is ridiculous, you better have nerves of steel if you want to survive this ride; the transition to online play is transparent and seamless, which is a really nice touch
- Just like in real life, navigating through the huge city can be intimidating; the learning curve is far steeper this time around that you will spend some time getting acclimated to the game; an instantaneous "restart" option would have definitely come in handy
It won't wow you with a high degree of realism like Gran Turismo will but for pure racing action, it is one of the best titles ever produced. Give it a chance and you might find yourself having the most fun you've ever had in a virtual car.
Price$ 99.95 (AUD)
Think the rush of triple-A titles is over? Think again: Burnout Paradise is a bona fide winner and it just might be the best action racing game ever created!
There is no denying the allure of the Burnout series. Like a souped up racing car, the Burnout games have always been about three things: speed, speed and more speed. Putting the virtual pedal to the metal in Burnout was as close as we were going to get to becoming a daredevil street racer, and it let us do it without the fear of reprisal from the authorities and the risk of ending our lives in a fiery automotive crash.
For pure racing action, there was no other franchise that delivered on all counts. From the slick engine to the awesome damage modelling and physics to the nose-bleed inducing sensation of virtual speed, Burnout had it all.
And just when we thought the bar couldn't be pushed any higher, along comes the best Burnout yet: the aptly named Paradise. With its open-ended world and its go anywhere/do anything philosophy, Paradise shines with a beautiful new-gen sheen. It's everything you would expect from lauded developer Criterion.
We were lucky enough to pull on our driving gloves and slip behind the wheel of this ultra slick racer so click through to the next page to read our impressions and see why Paradise is an action racing fan's dream come true.
We'll see you out on the open road.

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.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
