  1. Genius Traveller 525 review

    Genius Traveller 525 review

    7  

    First the good news; if you’re one of them lefties then this is one of the few new mice you’ll actually be able to use without any of that fascistic right-handed ergonomics. Now the bad news, the Traveller 525 is a bit rubbish.

    Eikon Protector Suite review

    9  

    This is a biometric security finger swiper that adds protection to your Mac beyond your standard user ID and password. It’s new to Macs, but has been available for PCs for a short while. In fact, it’s so new to Macs that no installer comes in the box.

    Logitech has firmly ensconced itself in the world of AV through its Harmony universal remote series.

    Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 review

    9  

    Microsoft cops probably more criticism than any other company in the world. People just seem to like moaning about Windows and Office, and let's face it, it's easy to see why. But one thing Microsoft cannot be criticised for is making rubbish peripherals. Because it makes great ones.

    One For All URC 7781 review

    7  

    We can’t imagine any Wotsat reader needs a universal remote for more than 12 devices but we’ve all got stacks of gear (probably) but only tolerate using only a couple of remotes at the most to control them.

    Zalman FG-1000 FPS Gun review

    Zalman FG-1000 FPS Gun review

     

    The FG-1000 acts much more like a gun with your left and right movements operated by swivelling the wrist rather than moving the whole hand across the desktop. It takes a while to get used to, but once mastered it could give you far more lateral control over your crosshair.

    Genius G-Pen F610 review

    7  

    The Genius G-Pen F610 is a slim, cheap and large USB tablet. It has pressure levels that compete with the best and even sports the highly useful Hot Key system. For general-purpose use this piece of kit is perfect.

    Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 review

    Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 review

    6  

    The Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 doesn't seem to have the same feel of long-lived solidity as the old Intellimouse. There's something a little too complex about the over-designed ergonomics that forces your hand into a rigid, RSI-inducing claw shape. And if you're a sinister lefty then you can definitely forget about this little rodent.

    Kensington SlimBlade Media Notebook Set review

    Kensington SlimBlade Media Notebook Set review

    5  

    Simply in terms of the idea, I like the thought of a modular keyboard, especially if you're talking media centre-style. Having a full keyboard with a removable number pad and media remote would be very handy. Sometimes you don't need the extra buttons and sometimes you do - see, handy.

    Macally Accuglide review

    7  

    This slimline, wired mouse (powered via USB) takes up next to no space in a laptop bag and is particularly good for presentation work on the road. Like all super-small mice, though, it's fiddly to use over a long period of time, so isn't the ideal solution for regular office work.

    ATEN two-port KVMP switch review

    8  

    If two PCs have to run through one monitor and you intend to use one keyboard and mouse, your choices are limited to how you proceed. That's why we've taken a look at ATEN's two-port switch, which provides stellar performance in a unit that won't look out of place in your home.

    Plugging a monitor into your PC via USB, daisy-chaining your panels to provide a grand vista of screeny goodness, sounds like the stuff of dreams.

    Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse review

    Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse review

    9  

    We were initially worried by the Sidewinder's angular stealth bomber aesthetic - after all, when was the last time you gripped something pointy and thought to yourself, 'Mmm, this is the very pinnacle, the apogee if you will, of comfort.'

    Targus ExpressCard Dock review

    8  

    Adding a docking station to your laptop is not a new idea, but this is the first ExpressCard solution we've seen. Using this card means you'll get a faster throughput, so peripherals will link to your laptop easier and faster, for better overall performance.

    Yoggie Pico review

    8  

    The Pico is a miniature computer that does all of the work of your security software, so that your PC doesn't have to. It sounds like an extravagant luxury to have a whole computer dedicated to security work, but the Yoggie is the size of a USB stick.

    Unless you have a 17-inch laptop it is unlikely your machine will have its own numeric keypad, so this external calculator from Genius is a possible replacement.

    DomiaLite Bye Bye Standby Intro Kit review

    8  

    It's only been in the last few years that the PC industry has started to recognise that it really ought to have a conscience about how much energy it is wasting. CPU manufacturers are fighting wars on how efficient their chips are and PSU companies especially are at least trying to be seen to fight the good fight.

    Thrustmaster T.Flight Stick X review

    7  

    Budget twig ahoy! This cheap and cheerful offering from Thrustmaster is designed to work straight out of the box with Flight Simulator X thanks to a preassigned config – though we’ve rarely found a waggler that didn’t get the basic setup (pitch, roll, throttle and so on) correct.

    Wacom Cintiq 12WX review

    Every now and then, a product comes into the MacFormat offices that is so all-round wonderful that we will try anything to avoid handing it back, and Wacom’s latest graphics-tablet-with-built-in-screen affair certainly falls into this category.

    This small and compact optical mouse has a twist in its tail, as the USB lead is retractable and hides away in the base of the unit when not needed.
