Canon EOS 1000D / Rebel SX Review

Originally I wanted to buy the Sony DSLR A200 kit again because my budget's only around the £300 mark but unfortunately, it seems it's no longer in production and is superceded by the more expensive A230 kit. Considering the jump in costs and how the specs on the new model are the same, I thought I'd go for something else that was within the...


Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 Review, Wide Angle Compact

Been using the Canon Powershot SX200 for a while now and I was beginning to get bothered about the soft photos it was producing so, I decided to try out the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 to see if I was missing out on anything. So here, you'll see a bit of comparison between the two cameras - SX200 v TZ7. Inside the box you get... Taking the TZ7 out...


VDigi VD-W2 Wii VGA Cable Review

Here's a solution for anyone wanting to use their computer monitors to play their Wii on - The VDigi VD-W2 Wii VGA Cable. Thought I'd try it out because I wanted to move the console into my room and my monitor doesn't have component, HDMI or AV inputs unfortunately. Here's a close up - There's the VGA connector itself as well as the two red...


Western Digital 1TB My Book Essential Edition Hard Drive

Thought I'd back up my entire digital music collection into a single place instead of DVDs so I picked up a 1TB Western Digital My Book Essential Hard Drive. Of course, I'll still be using the smaller 160GB Toshiba ALU drive because this isn't so convenient to set up with a separate power supply. The hard drive is well packaged inside the...


Nintendo Wii Hardware and Software Mods, Going Region Free

Decided to take the plunge and add a chip to my Wii because there was a number of Japanese only games I wanted to play or just games I wanted to play in their original Kanji context such as Muramasa The Demon Blade. It was also partly because the recent DriveKey chip doesn't require any soldering. Despite saying that however, it's not easy...


Wii MotionPlus and Wii Sports Resort Review

The Wii MotionPlus accessory has been out for several weeks here but funnily enough, the software that really shows it off Wii Sports Resort wasn't released until last Friday. As you can see, they come with their own bigger rubber case... But I don't use them so I just took them off. Plugging the accessory in makes the Wiimote a fair bit...


Logitech LX8 Cordless Laser Mouse Review

Got myself a new wireless mouse, the Logitech LX8 because the wire on my old Microsoft Optical Mouse was getting in my way whenever I spread out documents on my desk. I was actually looking for one with a blue LED but couldn't find one... It comes with an extension USB cord for plugging in the mini receiver and two alkaline Duracell AA...


Fragile Farewell Ruins of the Moon Review

Part of the prologue to Fragile Farewell Ruins of the Moon at the official website is, "Why am I all alone?" is indeed true of the "survival" adventure game as Seto meets and parts with various characters through Tri-crescendo's latest game. Seto has been living with an old man in an observatory amongst the ruins but he has recently...


Canon Powershot SX200 IS Review, Wide Angle Compact

Decided to upgrade to a better compact after browsing around during my trip to HK and wanted a model that could record HD video. Originally I had considered the high end Panasonic Lumix LX3 that Danny Choo's using for its large 1/1.6" sensor (most compacts have a 1/2.3") which gives better dynamic range in photos closer to that of DSLRs...


Muramasa The Demon Blade Review

Playing as Momohime, the story tells of an evil swordsman "Jinkuro" who tries to possess Yukinojo's body for his power but ends up in Momohime's body instead. She is forced out of the castle and now Jinkuro wants to find the blade that will help him return to his original form but first, he's going to have to protect his current host and...
