2. Garmin Forerunner 610 GPS watch

Garmin's Forerunner 610 is pricy but if you're a serious athlete we can definitely see its value. It's able to track and store a huge range of workout metrics in combination with the bundled heart-rate monitor, and includes software to ...

3. Garmin nuvi 2360LT GPS unit

Garmin promotes pedestrian navigation as one of the nuvi 2360LT's key features, but this GPS is also a great sat nav for car navigation thanks to a simple and effective user interface that makes for a pleasant user experience.

AVIC-F20BT
4.00

7. Pioneer AVIC-F20BT in-car navigation system

Pioneer's AVIC-F20BT in-car navigation system is a jack of all trades. An easy-to-use interface combined with the wealth of features on offer makes this a nice option -- if you can afford its hefty asking price.

Via 220
3.75

8. TomTom Via 220 GPS unit

TomTom's Via 220 may be a basic, entry-level GPS unit, but unless you critically require Bluetooth hands-free functionality, we highly recommend it over more expensive models like the Via 180. An attractive, easy-to-use interface and a positive navigation experience make ...

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.

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.

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.
