BenQ CP120 digital projector

BenQ CP120 digital projector

The CP120 attempts to infuse 'enjoyment' (a BenQ watchword) into the relatively staid world of digital projectors. Its black suede-effect zipped pouch feels like an upmarket drinks cooler, and its manual opens with a couple of pages of a smiling cartoon version of the projector giving cheery instruction on how to take care of it. As it warms up, the CP120 shines the message 'Enjoyment Matters' on the screen. But after that, it gets down to business and is a commendably serious beast. And for £739.07 (ex. VAT), it's also a good-value one.

Billion Electric BiGuard S10

By doing away with the need for additional client software, SSL VPN gateways have revolutionised the remote LAN access market of late, making life simpler for end users and network managers alike. However, they’re mostly implemented as standalone appliances, which means yet another box to setup and manage. But not if you opt for the new <a href="http://www.billion.uk.com/product/biguard/biguards10.htm">BiGuard S10</a> from Billion Electric, which comes with an integrated router and firewall as well as an SSL VPN gateway.

However, the new Vodafone Mobile Connect USB Modem takes things a step further: it's smaller and lighter than a PC Card and it offers self-install services for Windows users.

Netgear RangeMax Next

Netgear RangeMax Next

Netgear's approach to high-speed wireless can be a little confusing, as its RangeMax Next products are available based on both the Broadcom Intensi-fi and Marvell Top Dog chipsets. We tested the Top Dog-based <a href="http://www.netgear.co.uk/extra/h_rangemaxnext_wirelessrouters_wnr854t.php">WNR854T</a> router, further identified as the Gigabit Edition, together with the WN511T PC Card that uses the same Marvell silicon.

D-Link RangeBooster N 650

D-Link RangeBooster N 650

Based on Atheros silicon, the D-Link RangeBooster N 650 was one of the first Draft-N products to ship and early samples failed to impress. New firmware, however, has addressed most of the teething problems, and the DIR-635 router we examined performed well on both our throughput and range tests.

Buffalo AirStation Nfiniti Wireless-N

Buffalo AirStation Nfiniti Wireless-N

On paper, the Buffalo Nfiniti Wireless-N router and access point has a lot going for it. As the name suggests, for example, it can be used both as a router and as a standalone wireless access point. There’s even a physical selector switch on the base as well as the option of setting the mode in software.

Belkin N1

With its bright blue illuminated symbols at the front and three sprouting antennas at the rear, Belkin’s shiny black N1 router is certainly attractive. It also features a built-in 4-port switch for wired LAN connectivity, with a separate network port to attach an ADSL or cable broadband modem.
