So this was 2012 and what has tech done? Another year over and a new one just about to begin. We look back on the year and analyze what went right and what went wrong in six major categories: Televisions, notebooks, tablets, cameras, mobile phones and gaming.
Priced at S$330, the on-ear Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset by Monster is very travel-friendly, with its flat cables as well as the ability to be folded and stowed away neatly in the carrying case. We take it to the labs to see if its hefty price tag is justifiable.
Like the older a-Jays Four, the t-Jays Four is also for use with Apple iPhones, but it also sports a few new features including 10mm dynamic drivers, and vented bass ports on the back of the ear buds to increase bass performance. We find out if it sounds as good as its specs suggest.
Sporting a closed-back acoustic design with non-swivelling ear cups, the portable circumaural FA-004 v2 headphones features a headband padded in synthetic leather for maximum comfort. We find out if it sounds as good as it looks.
Sporting the Quad-Stand pedestal instead of the more recent Arc-Flow stand flaunted by its ES8000 LED sibling, the E8000 plasma TV sports many of Samsung's Smart Interaction privileges, which include voice activation, motion controls, and facial recognition. We find out how this 51-inch model fares.
The Panasonic KX-MB1530CX laser monochrome printer comes with an automatic document feeder, which is a rarity for a compact printer. However, will its small size compromise its abilities? We find out.
The IPS235V comes with a quality assurance report, which is uncommon among 23-inch monitors. Priced reasonably, it offers D-Sub, DVI-D and HDMI connectivity ports. We find out if this IPS, LED-backlit LCD monitor from LG makes the mark.
With a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, the 23-inch 237E3QPH IPS monitor incorporates a PowerSensor feature designed to save power, has a VGA port and dual HDMI inputs. Read on to find out if this white LED-backlit monitor is worth your money.
The latest 27-inch model to the UltraSharp desktop monitor family features an IPS panel with LED backlighting. In a matte-black finish and silver highlights, the Dell U2713HM lets you adjust height, tilt, as well as swivel. Read on to find out how we rank this one.
Similar to the H300, except that it comes with an additional 16GB of internal storage, the Samsung HMX-H304 includes a 3-inch LCD screen and a 30x optical zoom. Will this model meet our expectations of an easy to use camcorder? We find out.
