Review:Logitech's Home Cinema Package Delivers Sturdy Sound
As compact systems go, this 5.1 channel Home Cinema package from Logitech, intended for use with a PC, would work equally well in an AV environment due to its generous connections, if you're not too worried about the Z906's inelegant looks.

Excellent Creative Zen Is No iPod Killer
Excellent Creative Zen Is No iPod Killer
Creative have had a hard slog in the media player market. They have consistently produced reasonable players but have had a hard time taking any market share. The reason is comes down to brand positioning and innovation, both of which they sorely lack. The new Zen XFi2 continues their trend of players that produce excellent sound and a wide range of features. The design is much more streamlined and attractive than previous players but there is no real innovation in the product and as such, they will undoubtedly join the background noise of the MP3 market dominated by the Apple iPod.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
