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…

Virgin Media V Box HD

The monthly price of multichannel hi-def TV has been slashed with the introduction of Virgin Media’s latest set-top box, the Virgin V Box HD. The first in what promises to be a new range of receivers and PVRs, the HDD-less V Box HD, made by Cisco, allows subscribers to the cablenet to get on-tap HD  Full Article…

Metronic T2 HD Zapbox

The Metronic T2 HD Zapbox is a rather rudimentary take on DVB-T2. No bigger than a tiny, no-frills Freeview HD box, it sports a bog-standard black shell with a central red LED display that’s flanked by simple standby and channel up/down controls.

Flip Video UltraHD

Having been a huge hit in America, the original Flip never managed to gain much of a foothold this side of the pond. Touted as the iPod of digital camcorders, it was designed with ease-of-use as a priority, even over video quality and product size. We were less than impressed with its original incarnation, and  Full Article…

Kodak Zi6

Another high-definition 1,280 x 720 camera, the Kodak Zi6 boasts a similar pop-out USB connector to those featured on the Flip devices. It comes supplied with two pre-charged AA batteries and a mini-charger to recharge them when flat, which is ideal for a device designed to be carried around all over the place. The Zi6’s  Full Article…

Flip Video Ultra

This camera from the Flip range is half the price of its HD stablemate, but there’s a clear step down in quality. Once again it’s very straightforward to use, and boasts a pop-out USB connector. The image quality on offer here isn’t bad at all considering that it’s only standard-definition 640 x 480. It’s a  Full Article…

Disgo Video Fun

Disgo’s Video Fun is a cheap pocket digital video camera… and it shows. We tested it against two mobile phones (Nokia N73 and iPhone) and all three did a fair job recording outdoors in the sun, but struggled indoors under false light. The Video Fun failed to outperform the phones, and, in some areas, was  Full Article…

Panasonic HDC-HS60

The Panasonic HDC-HS60 is a brand new full HD camcorder which packs internal storage galore as well as many other nifty features. However, when less than £200 gets you a pocket-sized, YouTube-friendly movie camera like the Flip or even Apple’s iPod nano, why would you want to spend over £500 on a camcorder – even  Full Article…

Kodak Zi8

Kodak’s latest pocket digital video camera, the Zi8, is an object lesson in why an impressive spec sheet does not necessarily make a good product. At first glance, the Zi8 answers all the criticisms we had of the Kodak Zi6. It has basic stabilisation, a rechargeable Li-ion battery rather than AAs, 1080p recording rather than  Full Article…
