  1. IRISCard Pro 4 review

    IRISCard Pro 4 review

    8  

    The IRISCard Pro 4 is the latest update by IRIS for its portable card scanner and software bundle. It scans business cards and saves them to the included software, from where you can export contacts to other apps including Apple’s own Address Book.

    Epson PictureMate 290 review

    9  

    Dear oh dear, the Epson looks more like a mop bucket than a printer! Its slab-sided design, muted grey finish and crude-looking buttons are worrying, given that it’s the most expensive printer on test.

    Canon Selphy ES2 review

    The Selphy ES2 uses a completely different upright design compared with the CP750.

    Lexmark X4650 review

    6  

    The Lexmark X4650 is a multifunction device with scanning, printing and copying that lets you send files to and from the machine wirelessly or over USB. You will need a wireless router compatible with IEEE 802.11g to exploit these features.

    Macally Turtle review

    9  

    T he simple pleasure of a good old-fashioned mouse is easy to forget, but the Macally Turtle is a great example of how it doesn’t need to be fancy to be functional.

    IRIScan Express 2 review

    IRIScan Express 2 review

    4  

    At first glance, the IRIScan Express looked like it could be great. It’s powered by the USB cable and the driver installed without a hitch. But when entering the serial number supplied to unlock our ReadIris 11 software, we were told it was ‘invalid’.

    AgfaPhoto AP2300 review

    AgfaPhoto AP2300 review

    8  

    The AgfaPhoto AP2300 is sold in Argos stores and it’s the cheapest of the dye-sub printers on test. It’s well specified, supporting all four of the main memory card formats currently in use, together with PictBridge printing.

    OCZ Neural Impulse Actuator review

    OCZ Neural Impulse Actuator review

    8  

    We have a shining vision of the gaming future. It involves genuinely 3D graphics that are indiscernible from real life, tactile force feedback suits that simulate pressure and temperature and, very importantly, the removal of clunky manual control in favour of the power of thought alone.

    Sony DPP-FP95 review

    Sony DPP-FP95 review

    8  

    The Sony DPP-FP95 is the most expensive of Sony's dye-sub photo printers. Small, neat and well made, the FP95 has slots for all the major card formats, and not just Sony's proprietary Memory Sticks.

    Panasonic KX-PX30E review

    Panasonic KX-PX30E review

    7  

    The Panasonic PX30 is still very new and it could be a while before prices settle down properly. As it is, though, it does look expensive for what is a fairly ordinary dye-sub printer.

    HP PhotoSmart A826 review

    HP PhotoSmart A826 review

    9  

    The HP A826 is surely as much a style statement as a printer. It looks like a prop from a 1950s sci-fi B-movie, and will certainly provide a talking point.

    Logitech G51 Speaker System review

    Logitech G51 Speaker System review

    8  

    To invest in a 5.1 speaker system you’ve got to be a keen gamer or someone who loves to hear music while sat at their PC. So, assuming that you fall into one of these categories, you’re going to be more than a little interested in Logitech’s satellite-ample G51 system.

    Canon PIXMA MX850 review

    9  

    We’re used to laser printers that are big and bulky, but the size of the inkjet Canon PIXMA MX850 took us by surprise as it is both wide and deep. You have to remove a huge quantity of packing tape to get to the power cord, ink cartridges and the print head, which are packed inside the printer.

    Saitek Cyborg Keyboard review

    Saitek Cyborg Keyboard review

    8  

    What do you need from a keyboard? Well, obviously keys are a must, with comfortable ergonomics and responsive switches being equally handy. Multi-coloured backlights? Silver-painted WSAD keys? Cursor keys? Touch-sensitive control panel?

    Epson Stylus DX9400F review

    Epson Stylus DX9400F review

    8  

    Although the Epson Stylus DX9400F has a SRP of £130, you’ll find it on sale for £100, which seems very reasonable for a printer and scanner that includes a fax.

    Brother MFC-7440N review

    Brother MFC-7440N review

    7  

    On the face of it, the Brother MFC-7440N is a surprisingly well-specified MFD. It’s a monochrome laser design with a fax and 10/100 BASE TX networking, with the added bonus that the scanner works in colour.

    Lexmark Pro X4875 review

    6  

    Lexmark includes the X4875 in its Professional range of All-In-One Inkjets and uses Lexmark’s regular pair of inkjet cartridges – one for black, one for the three colours – and sports a list of features that don’t seem especially professional.

    Microsoft Entertainment Desktop 7000 review

    Microsoft has clearly thought about the needs of the media PC user when designing this set. It’s made sure that good quality and ease of use are placed alongside great build quality and a host of features.

    Logitech DiNovo Mini review

    When choosing a media centre keyboard and mouse, then size is one of the key choices that needs to be addressed. If you don’t want to blot your living room with a full-size keyboard and mouse then the DiNovo Mini is ideal.

    KeySonic ACK-612 review

    At only £30, the KeySonic ACK-G12 is one of the cheapest and smallest keyboards on the market and has a host of great features that’ll help you master your media PC.

    Ricoh Aficio GX2500 review

    6  

    Ricoh’s new range of Aficio printers is an interesting attempt to solve the persistent problem of ‘ink-bleed’ – the loss of fine detail in both text and graphics that occurs when the water-based inks used by low-cost inkjet printers soak and spread into the porous surface of a sheet of paper.

    CEntrance MicPort Pro review

    CEntrance MicPort Pro review

    8  

    MicPort is a USB-powered mini-amp that enables the signal from a three-pin XLR microphone to work with your Mac. It’s useful because a Mac won’t take an XLR signal without amplification, and because it outputs the signal over USB for an easy connection with the computer.

    Razer Mako 2.1 THX Speakers review

    9  

    The Razer Mako 2.1 speaker set is absolutely phenomenal. Without a shadow of a doubt, it's the best looking and best sounding 2.1 desktop system we've ever come across. And that's high praise indeed, because there are some pretty damn good PC speaker systems out there.

    Samsung UM10 Optical Mouse review

    7  

    At first appearance, the Samsung UM10 looks a little odd and awkward to use. It’s a small flat mouse with a retractable lead that has a scroll wheel instead of conventional buttons.

    Parrot DS1120 Bluetooth Speakers review

    6  

    It's sometimes very hard to review a pair of low-end speakers. Weighing functionality against audio fidelity is an almost impossible task. And yet that's what we're having to do with the Parrot DS1120s.
