    Eneloop XX HR-3UWXB rechargeable battery review

    By 13 June 2013

    Batteries, possibly one of the most boring items we could write about. But by the end of this review, we're pretty sure you'll not only be thanking us for it, but you'll also have changed your mind about how you power your gadgets. The batteries we're...

    Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA100 review

    By 24 December 2010

    The Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA100 is a waterproof “dual camera” as Sanyo puts it. Using the pistol grip form factor, it is called a dual camera because it claims to offer not only Full HD video capture traditionally associated with this sort of design, but...

    Sanyo Xacti VPC-SH1 camcorder review

    By 16 June 2010

    Claimed to be the smallest and lightest in its class, the VPC-SH1 is Sanyo's latest range topping "dual camera". That's to say, although looking like a pocket camcorder pure and simple, now it has eschewed the Xacti range's eye-catching pistol grip design...

    Sanyo Xacti VPC-TH1 camcorder review

    By 21 May 2009

    The TH1 is aimed at those on a budget who still want to benefit from HD recording. It’s 720p rather than Full HD, but that’s still more than adequate for most applications. The 3in widescreen LCD screen is impressive as is the 30x optical zoom. The...

    Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 camcorder review

    By 14 May 2009

    Sanyo has been steadily building a reputation for excellent quality video cameras recently and the new Xacti FH1 looks like continuing that trend. The headline feature of the Sanyo is Full HD recording. You can capture 1920 x 1080p at 60 frames per seconds...

    Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 camcorder review

    By 6 May 2009

    The CG10 from Sanyo is a 10-megapixel camera and HD capable camcorder rolled into one. Its 1280 x 720 resolution should be more than good enough for the enthusiastic amateur. The zoom lens is limited to a 5x optic, however the 3-inch LCD screen is really...

    Sanyo PLV-Z3000 projector review

    By 3 April 2009

    One of the main reasons that home cinema projection hasn’t really caught on in the UK is because of the products’ huge size. Sanyo’s latest PLV-Z3000 doesn’t solve that problem - it’s big and it’s ugly - but you do at least get plenty of high-definition...

    Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000 camcorder review

    By 28 January 2009

    Sanyo has updated its flagship pistol grip camcorder with the new HD2000, but has the update been worth it? We get recording to find out. Compact but chunky, the new HD2000 replaces the HD1010 and takes a similar form factor. The pistol grip design means...

    Sanyo S750 review

    By 3 February 2005

    We’ve come to believe that your choice of mobile phone says more about what you are than who you are. But one thing is clear; we all like to think we’re ahead of the technology curve. Sanyo may be a late entrant into the UK mobile phone market - this...
