2. Sony BDP-S380 Blu-ray player

The Sony BDP-S380 is an excellent Blu-ray player that has the added bonus of Sony's BRAVIA Internet Video service. We're disappointed with the lack of optical digital output, and the fact that Wi-Fi is an optional extra, but this is ...

4. Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air

Bowers & Wilkins knows that the Zeppelin Air is a premium product. It's very pretty and sounds very good, and now has the advantage of Apple's AirPlay wireless music streaming system -- the only downside is its high price.

7. Sony BDP-S780 3D Blu-ray player

The Sony BDP-S780 offers a wide selection of Internet-streamed entertainment, but makes some curious compromises. Its 3D settings can improve stereoscopic viewing. But the US$230 price may be a painful trade-off for this model's capabilities.

Apple has made a (very) minor upgrade to the iPod nano with the addition of some new watch faces in the Clock app, and extra features for the Nike+ fitness app. A cynic would say the new model doesn't offer ...

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.

Ed Dawson
