Archos 9

Archos is best known for its range of personal media players, although it recently entered the computing market with the Archos 10 netbook. The Archos 9 touchscreen tablet is its latest venture, but sadly proves frustrating to use. At first glance the device looks smart.

New Apple iPod nano (2010)

Somebody at Apple obviously hates the phrase “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” because it has completely redesigned its best-selling iPod, the iPod nano, yet again. This year’s model is half the height of the previous generation and has the same clip-on design as the new iPod shuffle. The big change is that there’s  Full Article…

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that Apple’s white iPod headphones are crap.

Goodmans GDB300HD

Goodmans has been a trusted budget British brand for yonks, so it was only a matter of time before it issued its first Freeview HD receiver.

Philips DTR5520

As with a lot of brands trying to address the UK-specific market of Freeview – and in this case, Freeview HD – Philips has enlisted the help of renowned set-top box maker Pace to deliver its entry-level receiver, the DTR5520. We say entry-level because a Freeview HD recorder, the HDT8520, is also a result of  Full Article…

Triax TR 105

Though reasonably priced, the Triax TR 105 Freeview SD receiver isn’t the smallest or smartest looking zapper around. A minimalist fascia sports a blue LED indicator together with power and arrow buttons for channel changing. The remote has less of a budget feel about it and it’s well-placed and responsive buttons quickly become intuitive to  Full Article…
