Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 review

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2

A larger premium tablet fit for the S Pen

The foot-long screen of the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 provides enough room for proper S Pen markup. Likewise, the ability to open up four Multi Windows without any slowdown thanks to its just as large specs makes it a business friendly or productivity focused tablet choice. Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 review

For UK readers only, a Freesat box with Freetime, but no PVR features

Ultimately, the HB-1000S should be considered a modestly fabulous alternative to pay-TV propositions from the likes of Sky, Virgin Media et al as well as Freesat's own PVRs. It's just the ticket for those looking for a low price way to shed the yoke of subscription TV. Unlike YouView, this box can even double as a competent media streamer, and its catch-up is comprehensive enough for us not to bemoan the absence of a local hard drive. All things considered, the Humax HB-1000S offers a surprisingly superior TV experience for a paltry £99.95. It truly is a tiny telly titan. Read: Humax HB-1000S review

Samsung UE42F5500 review

Samsung UE42F5500

An excellent value TV that isn't quite perfect

Though the viewing angle of the panel isn't great, it's an endemic issue with motion blur – not helped by the LED Clear Motion feature – that we found the major disappointment ton the UE42F5500. The over-reliance of Smart Hub's pages on the contents of Samsung;s VideoHub on-demand app – despite it not even being installed on the UE42F5500 – is a little confusing. Samsung UE42F5500 review

Nokia Asha 503 review

Nokia Asha 503

A bargain handset that's full of features but not that smart

Nokia has managed to design and produce a solid device for under £100, and for the price it's hard to complain about the problems. The bulky frame can be taken one of two ways. Either you think it feels rugged and durable, or chunky and a waste of space. Read: Nokia Asha 503 review

Panasonic TX-P42ST60 review

Panasonic TX-P42ST60

There's life in the old plasma yet

Don't be put off by the lack of glamour exhibited by the P42ST60's exterior: inside beats a home cinema heart of gold with levels of contrast, light uniformity and colour accuracy you get only with a Panasonic plasma. This is joined, moreover, by a good 3D performance, above average audio, and a brilliantly friendly smart TV interface. Read: Panasonic TX-P42ST60 review

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro review

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro

Samsung unleashes a new range of Android tablets for pro users

The Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is large and in charge but it's ably backed up by the 10.1- and 8.4-inch versions. We like the look of all three, with the smallest and largest really offering something different, and the raw power under the hood is going to impress a lot of people. However, we're not sure what makes these tablets truly 'pro', nor why there's such a lag in the interface at this stage of the product design. We're just hoping Samsung prices these things sensibly - it's a long shot, given the brand's usual method of trying to match the iPad (and the fact that largest screen isn't going to be cheap) but should these undercut the competition enough we can see them turning at least one or two heads. Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro review
