Nokia Lumia 625 review: 4G smartphone on a budget

Adding to the already large family of Lumia smartphones, Nokia has introduced the budget Lumia 625. Here's our Nokia Lumia 625 review.
The aim of the Lumia 625, according to Nokia, is to offer users a large screen and 4G connectivity for an attractive budget price – just £189 on Pay As You Go. "With a super-fast internet connection, there's a real demand for big, beautiful screens that help bring all the content to life – this is where the Nokia Lumia 625 arrives with a really competitive price to match." said Vinay Jayakumar, product manager at Nokia.

Nokia Lumia 1020 review: An amazing camera bolted on to year-old smartphone

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is the Finnish firm's latest and greatest Windows smartphone with a 41Mp camera at its core. Here's our Nokia Lumia 1020 review. Review UPDATED: 23rd September 2013
The Lumia 1020 can be thought of as a replacement for the 808 PureView.  That model also had a 41Mp camera offering high-quality photography for a smartphone but was severely hindered by the Symbian operating system.

Quiet PC UltraNUC review: a small budget PC offering good value for money

The UltraNUC from Quiet PC is one of the smallest PCs we've ever seen. Although undoubtedly thicker than a modern laptop, it's much smaller in the other two dimensions, and weighs well under half as any laptop too. See all Budget PCs reviews.

Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 review: decent quality sound for a reasonable price

Plantronics is aiming to be a market leader in wireless earbuds with the BackBeat Go 2, and the second generation model is a significant improvement over its predecessor. The BackBeat Go 2 earbuds produce decent quality sound for a reasonable price, but we still long for improved battery life and better quality bass. See all headphones reviews.

Sony Xperia Z1 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone comparison review - which is the best Android phone?

We test a lot of smartphones here at PC Advisor, but recently two have stood out. The Sony Xperia Z1 and the Galaxy Note 3 are both big Android phones that offer stunning performance and excellent displays. They are part of a new breed of phones alongside the iPhone 5S that is taking portable computing to a new level of performance and  functionality. But which is best, the Xperia Z1 or the Galaxy Note 3?

Synology DS1813 review: sophisticated 8-bay NAS drive

Two's company and three's a crowd. But in NAS circles, the real magic starts when you have four drive bays to play with. That's when the circles of ‘data security' and ‘performance' coincide, by striping data across several disks in RAID 5 for added performance and disk redundancy.

Sony Xperia Z1 review: Xperia Z gets tuned but puts on weight

Shadow Warrior review

Endless, endlessly cheap innuendo, extreme gore, coloured keycards, complete linearity - all the hallmarks of an exceptionally irritating and retrograde first-person shooter. Yet Shadow Warrior gets away with it. Just about.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite review: affordable ultraportable laptop

Samsung says the Ativ Book 9 Lite shares the same 'design identity' as the flagship Ativ Book 9 Plus. It certainly looks similar – no bad thing since the flagship Plus model is one sleek and attractive laptop. See all mid-range laptop reviews.

WD Se 4TB review: fast and relatively quiet hard disk

Western Digital – just WD to its friends these days – spotted a rich untapped vein when it launched the WD Red hard disk last year. The 3.5in SATA Red disk neatly filled the gap that existed between the slow-spin Caviar Green drive, oft installed in consumer network-storage boxes, and the RE-4 business and enterprise hard disk, optimised for filling racks upon racks of network-storage shelves.

Toshiba Satellite L50DT-A-10C review: an AMD-powered budget laptop

AMD’s processors are still the chips of choice for many affordable laptops, despite Intel’s dominance at the more lucrative end of the market. So it’s no surprise that Toshiba has opted to slot one of AMD’s accelerated processing units (APU) inside its £550 Satellite L50DT. This APU is just a CPU and graphics controller combined, as we now also see in most Intel Core chips.
