    Tritton SEE2 review

    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

    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.'

    Logitech Quickcam Chat review

    Logitech is a leading webcam manufacturer, and the quality of the QuickCam Chat reflects the company's expertise. The spherical camera has cool white-and-blue styling and a flexible stand for attaching it to your laptop

    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.

    Creative Gigaworks HD50 review

    8  

    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.

    Are you in the market for some speakers to bring all that fantastic Mac media potential up a notch? Then you might as well get a pair that look as good as these. Fun is the order of the day here with these retro-looking boxes from Scandya.

    Hercules Blog Webcam review

    Capturing live audio and video from your PC was once a needlessly complicated affair. Webcams didn't have built-in microphones, offering poor resolutions and low refresh rates.

    Tritton Audio Xtreme PC headphones review

    7  

    We're used to thinking of surround sound as being created by encircling the listener with several speakers positioned around a room. So how is it possible to create this effect using a pair of headphones?

    Providing a quick way to translate text from French or Spanish to English and vice versa is the Wizcom Quicktionary 3 Lite. By inputting text using the built-in scanner or its touchscreen keyboard and stylus, it's easy to use when

    Okay, so what’s the most important thing when you’re looking for a new set of gaming headphones? Well, most of the time I’d say sound quality, in which case these AXPC headphones come up trumps.

    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.

    Canon PIXMA iP4500 review

    Canon PIXMA iP4500 review

    10  

    A bargain printer, the iP4500 uses Canon's unique line-up of five ChromaLife 100 inks, combining dye-based cyan, magenta, yellow and black inks with a second, pigment-based black ink. The system works so well in practise that Canon has now dropped conventional six-ink photo printers from its PIXMA range altogether.

    HP Photosmart Pro B9180 review

    For many people, spending £500 on a printer is not an option, but some photographers do like to 'go large' so we hauled in an A3+ printer from HP to give you an idea of what you can expect from a printer of this type.

    Epson Stylus Photo R285 review

    6  

    The Epson R285 is a bare-bones A4 printer which doesn't even include PictBridge support. What you do get, however, is Epson's latest generation of Claria dye-based inks that are delivered from six replaceable cartridges.

    Canon PIXMA MP970 review

    8  

    Aimed at the semi-professional market, the MP970 is Canon's top-of-the-range A4 printer, adding light cyan and light magenta inks to the five-ink line up of its other models such as the iP4500

    HP Photosmart D7460 review

    8  

    The D7460 is the latest in HP's new line of Photosmart printers that feature separate ink tanks for all six colours. The black ink is pigment-based, making the printer well suited to document printing as well as photo output.

    Epson Stylus Photo RX585 review

    On the face of it, the RX585 appears to be based on exactly the same print engine as the Epson R285, but adds all the extras you could wish for, including a multi-format card reader and colour screen for direct printing

    This bargain combo comes in at a just over £45 and comprises a scanner, A4 printer, copier and photo printer. It connects to a Mac via a discreet USB lead that tucks away neatly, and has another USB port for PictBridge printing straight from cameras. There are no memory card slots or Ethernet ports.

    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.
