  2.  Belkin Play N600 DB Wireless Dual Band N Router

    Posted: 

    The N600 DB is an ADSL wireless router designed for high throughput tasks such as according to Belkin streaming video The router has what Belkin calls Multibeam technology this is similar to the Smart Beam technology found in the D Link DIR 645 router where it can focus energy to connected devices to improve throughput Its also dual band so compatible devices can connect to the router over the less congested 5GHz band to avoid interference
    Setup is beautifully simple and can be done over a wireless connection so you dont have to move your PC near the router Once you ve plugged the router into your ADSL line the setup CD takes you through finding and connecting to the router from your PC with an encrypted wireless connection before it tests your ADSL line and asks for your broadband username and password The only strange part was when it asked for VPI and VCI numbers which we ve never been asked for when setting up an ADSL router but the usual 0 and 38 worked fine We were up and running connected to an ADSL line with a secure wireless connection just 10 minutes after we plugged in the router which is impressive

    The setup CD also installs the Belkin Router Monitor application which sits in your system tray Right clicking on its icon gives you shortcuts to the routers web based setup page its manual and the media sharing and backup functions The last option comes into play when you connect a disk to the router s USB port We plugged in an NTFS formatted external 500GB hard disk and the router recognised it straight away When a disk is connected you can browse its contents on any PC with the Router Monitor software installed and you can also play video and audio and view image files on DLNA or UpNP devices on the network We had no problems playing music watching films or looking at photos over the network on a PC and on a Motorola Defy Android smartphone running its built in DLNA app You can also use the Router Monitor to back up selected folders on your PC to the networked hard disk and it will back up new files once an hour automatically

  3.  With a new processor, higher pixel count and extended zoom r

    With Compact System Cameras attracting so much attention these days, it's easy to forget another alternative to the DSLR: the superzoom bridge camera. Traditionally these have married long zoom lenses with DSLR-like manual control, and more recently added Raw shooting and HD video capabilities. Panasonic's latest FZ45 is the latest in a line of well-received superzooms, and manages to offer all these features and more, but with a price tag just shy of 300 it has to put in quite a performance to outgun its cheaper rivals.
    Panasonic Lumix FZ45 Review - Features
    The camera's 24x optic may not have the broadest range in its class, but starting at 25mm and finishing up at 600mm means there should only be a handful of shooting situations that lie outside its capabilities. The two aspherical and three ED elements within its construction should also help maintain image quality throughout the focal range, while the previously-seen Power OIS system is said to better correct for hand-shake image blur than Panasonic's previous MEGA OIS technology.

    The FZ45's 14.1MP sensor captures images in both Raw and JPEG options, and outputs Raw images in Panasonic's proprietary .RW2 format. HD movie recording, using the AVCHD Lite format, is possible to a maximum resolution of 1280x720p, with a Motion JPEG option offered alongside, while movies recorded using the Creative Movie mode also allow the photographer to adjust the same exposure parameters as provided by the standard PASM quartet, in addition to providing control over maximum sensitivity, colour options and a range of other options.

    There's little out of the ordinary with the camera's LCD screen and EVF, the former measuring 3 inches and with a 230,000dot resolution. The camera also accepts the SD, SDHC and SDXC trio of memory card formats, and is supplied with a rechargeable lithium ion battery which is claimed to last for up to 580 shots once fully charged.
