Windows 8 after a year: 21 hardware hits and misses

Over the past year, I've used Windows 8 (and Windows 8.1) on at least 20 different PCs in a broad range of form factors, ranging from a Vista-era desktop to an amazingly light Haswell-powered Ultrabook with a Gorilla Glass cover.

Dell 2209WA

The 2209WA is a monitor with very few flaws. While we'd love to see 1:1 scaling, and the inset screen may cause some users grief, we wouldn't mind two of these sitting on our desk. This is the best 22-inch monitor we've seen.

AOC Jenio 919Pwz

AOC's latest 19-inch monitor from its Jenio range has brilliant colours and great ergonomics, but we would have liked to have seen a faster refresh rate than 60Hz at its native resolution.

Despite its thin and flimsy carry case, the NP905G2 projector straddles the line between portability and a full feature set very nicely.

Sanyo PLC-XW60

The Sanyo PLC-XW60 is a small projector promoted as being able to fit into a briefcase or handbag, albeit a very large handbag. While not the perfect picture, it is extremely portable and reasonably priced.
