  • CoPilot Live on T-Mobile MDA Compact III

    We reviewed Destinator on an HP iPaq alongside CoPilot Live installed on a T-Mobile MDA Compact III. This version - the T-Mobile - was useful, but with some glitches.

  • Destinator 6 with Traffic Sam

    PDA-based satellite navigation systems may soon be superseded by large-screen phones with built-in GPS, but only if the software is as good as this.

  • Brother MFC-9420CN

    Brother is pushing this as a business-friendly MFD. It's quick and built for high volume, and the colour-faxing capabilities are excellent.

  • Sanyo Xacti VPC-E7

    From a stylistic point of view, the Xacti VPC-E7 isn't the most adventurous of compacts – but while the design lacks originality, the Sanyo is a handsome handful.

  • Epson Stylus D78

    For sheer value for money, Epson's general inkjet range is hard to beat. The Stylus D78, however, isn't one of the best models we've seen come out of the firm's stable.

  • Evesham Nav-Cam 7500 TMC

    Design-wise, the Evesham is a beast of a unit, but while the buttons are generously proportioned, we found some controls fiddly and ineffective.

  • Koss Plug

    Very few things in life are more enervating than being force-fed someone else's idea of music at high volume, while you are sharing a train carriage, office or bus.

  • Acer Ferrari 3400

    The third Ferrari-branded notebook Acer has produced, the 3400 tag is rather deceptive. Although it does have an AMD Mobile Athlon 64 chip, it's actually the 3000+…

  • Trust 200NS

    Trust's 200NS adjustable notebook power adapter could be the answer if you want something that can be used with several different systems.

  • Lexmark X2470

    Sixty quid for a device that prints, scans and copies sounds like an irresistible deal. As is often the case with peripherals, things aren't quite what they seem.

  • Packard Bell Compasseo 500

    When a navigation device that's available for just £110 landed on PC Advisor's review desk, we weren't expecting a lot. And not a lot is exactly what we got.

  • Olympus FE-210

    A bargain at less than £100, this model from Olympus produces reasonable detail and balanced colours - in ideal conditions.

  • HP 2700n colour laser printer

    The HP 2700n seems to have been engineered, rather than designed. The toner system includes a clever latching mechanism which reveals the fragile light-sensitive…
