Ever got that feeling that you don't need it but you want it? The sentiment may be one that applies to this slim, stylish and well built Home Theatre PC from Acer.

Dvico TiVX Has The Potential To Be Awesome     Dvico TiVX Has The Potential To Be Awesome
I have reviewed every single Tivx that has ever been released in Australia and this is by far the best of the lot. However, while it is a great product in many respects, it also has its drawbacks as well - drawbacks that may hinder the average consumer picking it up. It has a whole lot of power with the ability to play an incredible array of file formats and it can do things that its competitors don't. It is a PVR and media player but it also has network sharing and online features as well. The problem comes with the network sharing and online features. When it comes to PVR functionality and media player capabilities, this is an incredible product but everything else is clumsy, difficult to use and feels unfinished.

Best Media Player On The Market     Best Media Player On The Market
This tiny little box is easily the best multimedia player on the market. Like the previous WDTV, it excels at bringing pretty much any media file you can think of from a USB device to your TV. If you can download it off the Internet, you can most likely play it on the WDTV. What makes it so exceptional isn't just how well it works but also that it is extremely cheap too. This new version adds three major features to the previous model. It now has a LAN port to connect the device to your home network, and an optical audio connection so you can hook it into your home theatre receiver and the maximum resolution has been bumped from 1080i to 1080p.

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.
