Parrot DS1120

Parrot is a French company with a track record of making quality stereo Bluetooth speaker systems. The formula hasn’t changed with the DS1120. These speakers offer a surprisingly expansive and room-filling sound that’s not short of bass. If you’re lu...

MySpace Music review

MySpace Music's long-awaited overhaul went live today, granting users access to thousands of streaming songs and new features such as customisable playlists, updated aesthetics, and a direct connection to Amazon.com's MP3 library.

AKG K 530

AKG’s K 530 open headphones are great for listening to nuances within musical tracks. They’re supremely balanced, but still have the frequency response to punch out lively tracks when amplified.

Sony Ericsson R306

A basic and inexpensive mobile handset, Sony Ericsson’s R306 has the unusual feature of offering a full stereo AM and FM radio. With dedicated external controls, as well as RDS (Radio Data System) and Track ID, the R306 is clearly about listening to ...

Vodafone MusicStation

Claiming the title of Australia’s first unlimited mobile music download service, Vodafone’s MusicStation certainly looks great value for money on first glance. Although it isn’t perfect, a competitive price, hassle-free downloads and an excellent use...

Microsoft Zune 16 GB

When PC World reviewed Microsoft's previous Zune flash player last fall, we questioned whether support for wireless and for video was overkill on a device that holds only 8GB of content. This fall, Microsoft addressed the storage limitations by addin...

Spore Origins

Spore Origins is an iPhone/iPod touch game that uses the evolutionary gameplay mechanics of the fully fledged game for PC and Mac. In focusing on one of Spore’s most fun elements, Spore Origins expands on the Spore universe while retaining the simpli...

Epson P-6000

For professional photographers covering media or sporting events, devices like the Epson P-6000 offer a quick and easy way to transfer images from memory cards to a portable hard drive without the hassle of booting up a laptop. For the casual user, h...

Apple iPod nano (3rd Generation)

Wider but shorter and thinner thanks to the addition of a 2in display for video playback, Apple's latest iPod nano is certainly awkward looking. But beneath its chubby, anodised aluminium exterior is another fine music player.

GarageBand '08 music-creation software

With the release of GarageBand 3.0 (the version included in iLife '06), iLife's music sketchpad application concentrated most of its efforts at incorporating podcasting capabilities. With the release of GarageBand '08, Apple shifts its music-creation...

Toshiba Gigabeat U201

The Toshiba Gigabeat range always seems to do something new and unique or have functionality that seems smart and well thought out. However, the U201 is a Gigabeat in name only with a run-of-the-mill feature set and its fair share of annoying quirks...

SanDisk Sansa Shaker

It's hard to know what the kids of today are into, just writing the phrase "the kids of today" makes us feel a little older than we would like. However, when the Sandisk Sansa Shaker MP3 player came across our desk, we somehow didn't think "Shaking"...

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

Andrew Grant

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

Ed Dawson

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

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!

Mark Escubio

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.
