    Tritton AXPC review

    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.

    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

    Brother DCP-135C review

    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.

    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.

    Trust Retractable Mini Mouse review

    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.

    Laptop speakers are poor substitutes for external separates, so there is a growing market for small portable units, of which the Yamaha NX-U10 is the latest and most impressive...

    For years Wacom has been at the forefront of graphics tablet technology and is, without question, the undisputed market leader. The lengthy existence of the Graphire range makes it easy to see why

    Razer Destructor review

    Rarely have I been that complimentary about Razer's mice creations in the past, but they sure can make a mouse pad. The Destructor is about the finest surface you can play games on short of a fractal-coated maiden on all fours.

    Most universal remote controls are based on the simple notion of replacing your existing remotes with one handset, and advanced users can set up macros – sequences of commands for several devices.

    My ears are in love; cocooned as they are in soft, soft foamy cloth, being lovingly caressed by the alternately booming then plinky, twinkly noises emanating from the twin speakers set at a comfortable distance away from my lugs. This is one seriously good gaming headset.

    Looks lovely, doesn’t it? That’s what Samsung is hoping you’ll think as it charges a premium for its new product. Laser printers are available from as little as £50 now.

    Things have been difficult between laser gaming mice and myself. The relationship, while admittedly shaky from the beginning, has grown steadily worse after hours of repeated, simulated death.
