  • Lexmark X8350

    MFDs are usually slanted towards the home market or the business world, but the Lexmark tries to have a foot in each camp.

    £200 inc VAT

  • HP Pavilion dv5094EA

    HP has been a real winner in our laptop charts in the past, holding the top positions for months at a time. Unfortunately, the Pavilion doesn't follow that happy trend.

  • Xonic Gear Apocalypse 5

    These Apocalypse speakers use a vacuum tube amplifier. Readers under 50 might be bewildered as to what a valve amp is, but rest assured that it's an audiophile favourite.

  • Plextor PX-760A

    The DVD industry is awash with gossip about Blu-ray and HD-DVD, but Plextor hasn't allowed itself to be distracted from improving on the existing model.

  • Panasonic VDR-D300

    It's a surprise to see the very consumer-oriented DVD camcorder format married to semi-pro three-CCD optics in Panasonic's VDR-D300.

  • Evesham Quest A620

    The A620 has a dual-core 64bit processor, oodles of memory and a superb graphics card. We're not convinced it's worth £2,500, though.

    £2,499 inc VAT

  • Lexmark E240n

    The compact Lexmark E240n has the same angular design as the company's E232 and E330 models, but adds networking via its built-in ethernet port.

  • 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.

  • US Robotics USR809600

    Only on the internet is it feasible to get something for nothing. VoIP is the latest craze, promising free phone calls over the web.

  • Pioneer BDR-101A

    Blu-ray is finally here, with Pioneer's BDR-101A leading the way. This is the first drive for PCs that records to Blu-ray Disc. Its appeal is undeniable.

  • HP Deskjet 6980 and HP Deskjet 6940

    With inkjet manufacturers jumping aboard the digital-camera bandwagon, there's a dearth of good all-round, office-friendly inkjets. HP has filled the gap with its…

  • BenQ E520+

    The slim E520+ is a good-looking piece of kit, and it's a dream to use, needing only a single click to move between camera modes.

  • Remote Keyboard for XP Media Center

    Take a look at the (deep breath) Microsoft Remote Keyboard for Windows XP Media Center Edition, and you have to admit it has a certain pizzazz. But then, this is no…

  • MSI NX7600GS-T2D256EH

    The chip in this card may sound familiar to those who read June's 7600 GT review. In terms of basic architecture, the 7600 GS and 7600 GT are identical, but there are…

  • Samsung Q1

    Imagine our excitement when a brand-new Q1 from Samsung – one of the much-hyped Origami devices that have been in the news so much – arrived at PC Advisor.

  • Cube247 Sigma ST5

    The Sigma ST5 isn't outstanding, but it's a very assured system. Cube247 has gone for safe specifications, rather than taking a risk on a hot product or two.

  • MSI NX7900GT-T2D56E

    The 7900 GTX may be a powerful gaming card, but its £500 asking price is eyewatering. The 7900 GT is a far more enticing prospect.

  • Acer TravelMate 8204WMLi

    The TravelMate is a beautifully executed laptop, but Acer certainly charges you for the privilege of owning it. You get what you pay for.

  • Samsung YP-Z5

    The YP-Z5 from Samsung offers a similar chassis, storage capacity and price tag to the iPod nano. So what makes it stand out? Plenty.

  • Asus EN7900GTX/2DHT

    Half a grand buys you a graphics card that's only slightly faster than the X1900 XTX, despite that card being more than £100 cheaper.
