    Iubi Blue review

    10  

    This attractively-priced portable media player is made by little-known Korean brand Iubi and sold in the UK by www.advancedmp3players.co.uk. But don't let its obscurity put you off - we reckon it could be a real surprise package

    Grundig VP6200 review

    8  

    Clearly influenced by Archos's more advanced PMPs, the VP6200 boasts such luxuries as line in NTSC/PAL video and audio recording, external AV output, FM tuner and voice-recorder. And there's an in-built camera capable of both stills and moving video

    The original Microsoft portable media centre,Creative's Windows Mobile-powered Zen was followed by the Samsung YH-999,also reviewed here.The Zen also has 20GB storage capacity,but the two differ in terms of size and appearance.

    Archos 704 WiFi review

    8  

    Archos' rise through the ranks of gadget purveyors has been heartening to see. Gadget historians will surely remember the company's first device, which was little more than a huge hard drive coupled with a tiny screen.

    Goodmans GPDR40 review

    6  

    About the same size as a pocket radio of yesteryear,the GPDR40 manages to cram in a generous 40GB of storage capacity and a 3.6in 4:3 TFT LCD screen.The GPDR40 looks a bit on the cheap 'n' tacky side

    iRiver Clix review

    8  

    Just when you thought you were safe from new display technologies, along comes iRiver to introduce another one. This diddy 4GB player is the first to sport an AMOLED screen, a variant of the OLED technology that you're probably familiar with.

    Apple iPod touch 16GB review

    6  

    The Apple iPod touch is a curious beast. It looks like an iPhone, works like an iPhone. It even includes Wi-Fi and web-surfing like the iPhone. And yet it patently isn't one - a quick look across its glass-covered fascia will tell you that

    Creative Zen 4GB review

    While the world is obsessing over Apple's new iPod touch, let's not forget about all the other cool MP3 players out there. You know, the ones that aren't locked down to proprietary file formats and limited to use with only one PC or Mac, ahem

    The AV700 portable media player has been available for some time, but this version has another trick up its sleeve: it's been fitted with a digital TV tuner

    Archos 704 Mobile DVR review

    8  

    Archos 704 Mobile DVR review: Good old Archos. The world had pretty much forgotten its not-bad-actually personal media player, the AV500.Then Archos comes bounding back onto the market like some sort of hyperactive technology-providing spaniel

    Samsung YH-999 review

    8  

    When building its first 'portable media center',Samsung joined forces with computer giant Microsoft - to this end, the £400 YH-999 sports the company's seal of approval in the form of a 'designed for Windows Mobile' logo.

    Cowon iAudio A2 review

    Cowon iAudio A2 review

    8  

    So similar in shape and appearance to Creative's Zen Vision W that the initial impulse is to presume they're the same, the Cowon's is entirely its own entity. And the A2 actually touts more features for the dedicated moviephile

    Archos 604 review

    8  

    PVRs are traditionally chunky set-top boxes, but Archos has come up with a revolutionary fix, a docking station that turns its portable media player into a fully-functioning personal video recorder - a sort of portable PVR, if you will

    Maxfield Max-Movie review

    Maxfield Max-Movie review

    6  

    We know technology is shrinking, but this is ridiculous. At just 69mm long, MaxField's Max-Movie media player is no bigger than a matchbox, but somehow it packs a lot of features into its diminutive frame - 1GB of flash memory, playback of movie and audio files, FM radio tuner, a photo viewer, voice recorder and even an alarm clock.

    Apple iPod nano 2007 review

    Apple iPod nano 2007 review

    8  

    What makes an iPod an iPod? It can't be the interface, because Creative says it designed that (natch). Could it be the clickwheel? Well the new iPod touch doesn't have one of them so it can't be that either, really. So what is it? The answer is a word that begins with 'q' and ends with 'uality'

    Stubby. That was the first word that popped into our heads when we clapped eyes on the new iPod nano. Three seconds later, though, with the device lying seductively in our hands, we turned from sceptic to believer

    Vosonic VP8360 review

    Actually a member of that strange subset of devices that's designed more for viewing digital photos than anything else, the Vosonic as a result doesn't stand quite shoulder to shoulder with other video players

    PQI mPack P600 review

    10  

    The solidly-built mPack P600 borrows its basic 'clamshell' design from portable DVD players. Its top half is dominated by the 16:9 TFT LCD display, while the bottom sports stereo speakers and a series of sensibly-arranged controls

    MP3 players usually come in two flavours. The choice is between hard disk devices, with enough capacity to store an entire music collection, or smaller flash storage based players

    PQI mPack P600 review

    10  

    The mPack P600 is a personal media player that stands apart from the crowd. It's made by a little-known Far Eastern manufacturer, which tends to get the alarm bells ringing, but this is far from a piece of cheap tat

    iubi Blue review

    6  

    Ah, the tragic cost of a terrible interface. The iubi has one of the most vivid screens around - although it's only 480 x 272 and could really do with a punchier backlight - but its Operating System and button layout are just awful.

    Archos AV 700 TV review

    The AV 700 TV is the first Archos media player to offer integrated digital TV recording via dual digital terrestrial tuners. If you want to record from other sources you must invest in a separate TV 'pod' or travel kit

    Cowon iAudio D2 review

    It may be small, but the iAudio D2 sure packs a lot into its slight frame. Not only does this compact gizmo play audio and video files, but it also features an FM tuner and SD/MMC card reader slot
