  1. 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.

    Logitech Quickcam Deluxe review

    Apple introduced system-wide support for USB webcams in the Mac OS X 10.4.9 update. So, even though on Logitech's site this camera and others don't appear to be Mac compatible, they are, and Logitech hasn't picked up on this or needs to update its site

    The Pentax DSmobile 600 scanner measures 280 x 51 x 38mm, and is a small and convenient device to carry around.

    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.

    Saitek 3D 380 2.1 Speakers review

    7  

    This mid-price speaker set from Saitek, just misses out on the 'quality' sector. Despite having a fairly impressive sub-woofer the satellite speakers of the Saitek 3D 380 are a bit of a disappointment. They aren't particularly stable sat up on their end and get in the way when laid down on their bellies.

    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.

    Kyocera FS-1300DN review

    7  

    Kyocera was pushing the green message before it became fashionable, and this model continues the tradition. While many other manufacturers include the developer and drum with the toner cartridge, the FS-1300D’s developer and drum are part of the printer – guaranteed for its working life – and the toner cartridge itself is simple and holds only toner.

    LaCie FireWire Speakers review

    LaCie, like Apple, puts a premium on good design. So when LaCie set about making these FireWire desktop speakers, it should come as no surprise that design luminary Neil Poulton was called in to do the job

    The 4490 offers much of the appeal of the 4990 Photo but at a far lowerprice. It boasts the same 4800x9600dpi resolution for a start, thoughthe stratospheric resolution figures being bandied about

    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.

    Hercules Dualpix HD webcam review

    8  

    Hercules' latest webcam joins a relatively overcrowded market, so it's lucky that it has a few features that set it apart from similarly priced units. It's particularly cheap at only £27, which would immediately suggest a deficit in terms of features or performance

    One of the aims of such tests is to establish how much you need to payfor a flatbed scanner. Central to this is whether you want high-quality film scanning, as this is what tends to bump up the price.

    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.

    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.

    Creative Gigaworks T40 review

    7  

    We're big fans of the Gigaworks T20 speaker set, and very familiar with it, so it was amusing when the T40 arrived having sprouted an extra midrange cone on each speaker, like some kind of sonic mutant.

    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.'

    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

    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.

    Creative Gigaworks HD50 review

    Small and compact, these Creative Gigaworks HD50 speakers have a minimalist look. When it comes to sound quality we found them perfectly acceptable but, with no dedicated subwoofer, you'll notice the lack of bass, especially at high volume.
