Neuros MPEG 4 Recorder Review

Note - This review uses fairly large video files. You may have to wait a few seconds after pressing "play" for the video to load. I'm probably going to switch these to a different format shortly! :) The idea is simple. Make a box that will record s...

Orange SPV C600 Review

In November 2002 Orange launched the original SPV. At the same time a small page cropped up devoted to it. This single page grew into a site called CoolSmartPhone.com. As we've moved on, so have Orange and the SPV range. Orange brought us the first Wi...

T-Mobile MDA Compact II (Pink) Review!

Hot on the heels of the T-Mobile MDA Vario (reviewed here) comes the MDA Compact II. This time it comes in graphite or this "WoAh!!!!" baby pink colour. We had the pink one in for testing, and to be honest as a man about town I doubt I'd …

Orange SPV M600 Review

Outside The outer skin of the Orange SPV M600 looks like rubber, however it feels like steel. The bold "M600" logo on the top left and the "SPV" in the centre suit the unit well and give it a understated yet space-age feel. The c...

Boxwave miniBuds headphones

I've reviewed some Boxwave products before and they have a very clever "winding" mechanism included in a lot of their products. The Boxwave MiniSync cable scored highly with me and... let's be honest, this does too. Before I've ev...

SanDisk Ultra II 2Gb SD card

What can I say about the SanDisk Ultra II 2.0Gb SD card ? Well, to be honest you can't say much. That's not a bad thing either. This thing is massive - it's like the tardis. It's amazing to think that I had a hard drive in my …

Orange SPV C550 Review

  The latest in the SPV range, the C550 is pretty similar to the C500 which was released a few months ago. This time however the joystick has made a come-back, Windows Media Player 10 is on-board, there's dedicated music buttons on the front,...
