Review: Acer Iconia Tab W700

Acer's Iconia Tab W700 is the first Windows 8 tablet we’ve tested that’s not based on the low-powered Intel Atom Z2760. Instead, the W700 runs atop Intel’s Core i5-3317U dual-core CPU, as found in some of the latest ultraportable a...

Review: Casio G-Shock GB6900AB

We’ve seen plenty of smartwatches, but often the watch part can seem like an afterthought. Here it’s the other way around – Casio took its popular G-Shock range of sports watches, and added Bluetooth connectivity so you can connect...

Review: HP PhotoSmart 7520

Earlier this year we looked at barebones, entry-level multifunction printers. The HP PhotoSmart 7520 slides up the scale, coming to rest on the border between ‘home’ and ‘home office’.

Review: Logitech k310

Logitech’s k310 is a very basic wired USB keyboard, of the sort you’d expect to buy for $20-30 at any major New Zealand retailer. However, it’s designed to be hand-washable in the event of a coffee spill or similarly cataclysmic ev...

Review: Metro: Last Light

Metro: Last Light is a linear, story-driven first person shooter, and the sequel to 2010’s fairly successful Metro 2033.

Review: Dell S2340T

The advantage of Windows 8 is touch-control, and if you don’t have a setup that can take advantage of it, Dell’s S2340T might fit the bill. It has edge-to-edge glass to allow for Windows 8’s edge gestures and includes ten-point mul...

Review: Samsung Galaxy S III Mini

Samsung’s Galaxy S III is a remarkable smartphone. It’s arguably the only smartphone to achieve anywhere near the sort of consumer recognition and sales as Apple’s iconic iPhone. It's now been superseded by the brand-new Galaxy S 4...

Review: Acer Iconia Tab W510

Acer's Iconia W510 doesn’t look like a top-shelf piece of hardware. Its white-and-silver plastic construction isn’t unattractive, but it’s a far cry from the brushed aluminium common among its competitors. Even Dell’s Latitud...

Hands-on: Samsung Galaxy S4

Today we had a brief hands-on with Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S4 smartphone during a one-on-one session with Stefan Lecchi, head of telecommunications at Samsung New Zealand.

Review: Brother DCP-J140W

Brother's DCP-J140W has an RRP of $100, and sells for as little as $81. It’s the only printer we've tested lately that includes a three-year warranty, so long as you only use official Brother-branded ink cartridges. If you use refilled or afte...

Review: HP ElitePad 900

HP’s ElitePad 900 is a Windows 8 tablet designed for business users. Unlike ARM-powered tablets such as Microsoft’s own Surface RT, the ElitePad runs full-on Windows 8 Pro atop a latest generation Intel Atom processor.

Review: Canon MG3260

Canon's MG33260 is the updated version of the MG3160 we tested in February 2012. It’s a basic Wi-Fi-enabled inkjet multifunction printer, with an RRP of $109 and a shelf price as low as $75 from major retailers.

Review: Intel Next Unit of Computing (DC3217BY)

If you’re the global incumbent vendor of desktop and laptop processors, you’re entitled to a fair bit of self-confidence. However, even industry giant Intel seems a bit ambitious in titling its new small-form-factor embedded system the &...
