PC Advisor's Christmas gift guide 2007

The best gifts for you, your family and friends

When choosing a gift for yourself, your friends or your family, you want to be sure you’re getting a present worth paying for. PC Advisor’s hands-on reviews help you make some wise Yuletide buys.

This time of year sees the publication of countless ‘best high-tech gifts’ features. In many cases, the products that get a mention are included because they’re quirky, faddish, stylish or simply the sort of expensive, aspirational piece of gadgetry that’s likely to be a talking point.

While many such products are well thought out, beautifully designed and functional as well as striking, too many appear in glossy magazines at this time of year only to disappear come Boxing Day.

We like a bit of kitsch, fun gadgetry as much as anyone, and you’ll find some whimsical accessories in our New Products section. But we prefer to champion useful, usable consumer electronics that we’ve tested and would be delighted to find in our own stockings.

Over the following pages we’ve looked at the year’s crop of techno-gifts in a no-nonsense, straightforward manner, taking our usual approach of testing, reviewing and telling it like it is. We explain what we think works and what doesn’t about each of the products in every popular category here.

If it’s laptops and desktop PCs you’re after, there are rigorous reviews in our dedicated Reviews website - desktop PC reviews here, and reviews of laptop PCs here. The MP3 player, meanwhile, continues to be one of the best-loved pieces of gadgetry, and there's. Turn to page 72 to read our thoughts on the best portable players out there.

For the rest of your festive IT needs, from photo frames to DAB radios, read on…
