    Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 4-85 review

    By 11 July 2011

    Remember when the government deemed plasmas TVs the “4x4s of the living room”? Bang & Olufsen’s latest is more a road-train, clocking-in at a mighty 85-inches in diameter - so four times bigger than a 42-inch TV. It’s high-def, it’s 3D, it’s...

    Bang & Olufsen BeoCom 2 telephone review

    By 23 March 2006

    They always say style comes at a price and boy do they mean it with the Bang & Olufsen BeoCom 2. At £500 it would probably be cheaper to fly to the person you are hoping to talk to on the other end of the dog and bone rather than buy this model, however...
