• The PlayStation Vita and WiFi

    I mentioned in my original review of the PlayStation Vita that WiFi connectivity doesn’t appear to work as you’d expect when it comes to the various power options. Having now had a chance to read the manual it appears that it isn’t functioning as it should.

  • Sony PlayStation Vita Starter Kit

    If you’ve bought yourself a Sony Vita this starter kit will provide you with a number of very useful extras – 2 types of case, screen protector, wrist strap, game case and cleaning cloth. But shouldn’t a lot of this have come with the Vita in the first place?

  • Sony PlayStation Vita

    I have in my hands Sony’s latest portable console, the PlayStation Vita. Sony have combined pretty much gaming input method into one device. We have a 5″ touchscreen on the front and a touchpad on the back. There are 12 buttons, a D-pad, 2 analogue sticks, a microphone, Sixaxis motion sensing and an electronic compass.

  • LG E2360V monitor

    The new LG E2360V, the company would like us to believe, ticks not just one but three categories: it’s a Full HD panel, for entertainment, it’s fashionably slim, at just 12.9mm thick, and it’s also got some decent environmental credentials too. Still, it’s not a cheap display, so how does the reality live up to the hype?

  • Zyxel P-660HN-F1Z Wireless N 4-Port Router

    The Zyxel P-660HN-F1Z is an ultra high speed 802.11N ADSL2+ wireless router. But how does it perform and do you really need the benefits of band N WiFi?
