  • JVC Everio GZ-MC500EK

    Not only is this the smallest three-CCD camcorder we've ever seen, it's also a JVC Everio, so it doesn't record to DV tape. Like its MC200 predecessor (see April 05…

  • Lexmark C510

    We often wonder how manufacturers come up with the print speeds they claim their printers can achieve, as they don't seem to bear much resemblance to the output rate…

  • Navicore Personal

  • IrisPen Translator Executive

    The IrisPen is, on the face of it, a nifty tool. Rather then laboriously type or scrawl notes from the printed page, you simply swipe the handheld scanner across the…

  • Cube247 Serpens

    With its £1,799 price tag, the Serpens weighs in at the higher end of the PC market - although, it's certainly not the most expensive on offer. You'll have to be…

  • AJP GE1

  • Apple iPod nano

    Nano nano. Once a comedy catchphrase in Mork and Mindy, it now adorns, bizarrely, a pair of audio players by Creative and Apple. The coincidence is utterly shazbut.

  • Alienware Aurora 7500

    Laughing in the face of your normal price/performance balance, Alienware's Aurora 7500 is all high-end speed, top-drawer internal components and attention to detail.…

  • Genius G-Shot DV610

    The G-Shot DV610 is an example of how not to make a great digital camera/camcorder hybrid. In fact, Genius touts the DV610 as a six-in-one voice recorder, MP3 player,…

  • Sanyo Xacti VPC-C5

    When we reviewed Sanyo's Xacti VPC-C1, we were quite enamoured with the hybrid digital camera and mini-camcorder approach. We were less impressed by the lack of…
