    KeySonic ACK-612 review

    6  

    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

    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

    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.

    Razer Lycosa review

    8  

    Golly, two Razer products in two months that I actually like. Maybe this Cult of Razer thing is more insidious than I previously gave it credit for, or maybe it’s just because first the Destructor mouse pad and now the Lycosa keyboard are actually well designed, extremely useable PC peripherals.

    Saitek Cyborg Mouse review

    Creating a mouse that stands out from the crowd has got to be a nightmare, especially when lurking in that crowd are the smugly popular G9 from Logitech and Microsoft’s latest Sidewinder.

    Genius Traveller 525 review

    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

    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.

    Plantronics Audio 770 review

    9  

    We've had a lot of issues with gaming headsets recently, mainly down to the fact that so many of them use a USB connector and boast instant surround sound. All well and good if you're running onboard sound, but if you've spent out a little on a decent sound card, like the wondrous X-Fi, then no matter how good the cans, you're going to go for a set with analogue connectors.

    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

    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.

    Canon PIXMA MP520 review

    7  

    Under the bonnet of the Canon MP520 lies a neat row of four individually replaceable ink cartridges, from Canon's latest ChromaLife 100 range. This marries a pigment-based black ink with dye-based cyan, magenta and yellow inks, theoretically enabling fast, high-quality document printing and passable photo output.

    Logitech Quickcam for Notebooks Pro review

     

    While many modern laptops carry built-in webcams as standard, the Logitech QuickCam for Notebooks Pro (£80 inc. VAT) is a great option for older laptops that don't.

    HP Officejet J5780 review

    9  

    Bristling with heavy-duty features that belie its relatively inexpensive asking price, the HP J5780 not only includes a 35-sheet auto document feeder, but also full standalone fax functions, so you can send and receive faxes even when your PC is switched off

    Canon PIXMA MP610 review

    The Canon MP610 has a secret weapon in the shape of a second black ink cartridge in its arsenal. The result is spectacularly fast mono and colour document printing, along with photo quality that simply outdoes the competition.

    Lexmark X4550 review

    5  

    Considering that Lexmark is such a big name in the world of business printing, the X4550 feels surprisingly flimsy, with a build quality that doesn't seem to match the competition. We can't see this device remaining in one piece for long under heavy office conditions. Its main claim to fame is that it's fully Wi-Fi compatible straight out of the box, and in our tests this proved quick and easy to set up.

    Epson Stylus Photo RX585 review

    Banishing compromise from its outlook on printing, the Epson RX585 nails its vibrant colours firmly to the mast of photographic output, with a purely dye-based range of six Epson Claria inks.

    Epson Stylus DX8400 review

    6  

    Whether they use pigment- or dye-based inks, one almost universal problem with inkjet printers is that their output onto plain paper can be ruined by smudging, either merely by wiping a hand across the page or by a wayward drop of water. By contrast, the DX8400 uses Epson's cunning Durabright inks, which are resin-based.
