    3.50 / 5

Pros

  • Save audio in MP3, WAV, WMA and OGG formats

Cons

  • Third-party plug-in needed to create MP3s

Bottom Line

liteRecorder is a worthwhile purchase only for those who value ease of use and quality of capture over, well, value. But at $14, it's hardly bank-breaking.

Would you buy this?

LiteRecorder 1.1 allows you to record audio from your PC and output to MP3, WAV, WMA and OGG.

Or rather it does, but only once you've downloaded and installed the LAME MP3 encoder. Paying for software and then having to install a third-party tool isn't something we like—especially when the site liteRecorder pointed us toward sent Site Advisor spinning.

liteRecorder claws back some credibility in two areas —ease of setup and quality of capture. Its setup wizard detects your PC's sound card to maximise recording quality. And it makes a cool submarine noise while it's doing so.

You can capture audio generated by your PC, or via a line-in. You can do the latter with a free tool such as Audacity, enjoy greater editing options and still capture PC audio (if you run a line out into your line in). But you wouldn't get the ease of use that, for around $14, liteRecorder provides. And the additional stage in the capture process affects the quality of the recording.

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.

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!

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.
