External hard drives are becoming less and less expensive while offering even more storage capacity. One prime example of this is the 320GB 2.5” external hard drive from Western Digital. It’s half price in the PC World sale so you can pick one up for £75 at the moment – that’s a lot of storage for your money. Styled like a wallet the Western Digital My Passport external hard drive looks good, as well, and is available in a choice of black, red, blue, or white to match your mood (or, indeed, your computer room interior...

The HP Photosmart C4380 all-in-one printer has a lot of features and you can pick one up for £80. The range of features it has means that it’s most definitely an all-in-one rather than a 3-in-1 although simplistically it features a printer, scanner, and copier. Geared towards the home office or small business worker it combines high quality prints, excellent features, and speedy printing times to make it a highly desirable addition to the office. The wireless printer is extremely portable but its not lightweight in terms of options....

The Compaq Presario SR5501 is an excellent budget PC that is even cheaper thanks to the PC World sale that’s now on. Ordinarily £349, you can currently get one for £50 less at £299 and for that price it’s difficult to beat the features you get in exchange. Under the hood the Presario SR5501 relies on a 1.8GHz Intel Celeron dual core processor to deliver energy efficient power. The 160GB hard drive is ample for all but the most extreme file storage circumstances and the 1GB of RAM also ensures that you can not only run multiple...

However, the high definition audio output 7.1 surround sound speakers, blu-ray player, and 1080p upscaling go some way to convince us that long and completely unmemorable names are actually a good thing. Blu Ray is the format of the future, and the present, having knocked HD DVD firmly out of the competition. As such, it’s around to stay and...

The 32” HD Ready Samsung LE32A556P may not have the snappiest of names, but it does provide an extremely rich colour, dark blacks, and superb features as well as offering full HD ready capability with 1080p resolution.
