Now I just need to paint and light the tree!

Lantronix xPrintServer review

Lantronix xPrintServer review - iOS printingIf you want to print from your iOS device you’ll typically need a printer that supports AirPrint. AirPrint was introduced some time ago as part of iOS 4.2. Despite it being around for a while, AirPrint has not found its way in to many printers.

So if you have an existing printer that doesn’t support AirPrint but you don’t want to replace it, your options are somewhat limited. That’s Lantronix xPrintServer comes in. This small box simply plugs in to your existing network and provides AirPrint capability to virtually any existing printer.

It really is plug and play but before we get in to any of the detail, have a look at the unboxing video below to see what you get.

How to Choose your Ideal Laser Printer

rtaImage Laser printers were once so costly that only businesses could afford to use them. With office supply stores like Ryman now selling home laser printers, even colour versions, from around the £100 mark, their popularity as a home printing option is on the increase. Quieter, faster, and cheaper to run than standard inkjets, laser printers have some serious advantages for the home user too, particularly when it comes to printing high quality text and large volumes.

If you’ve decided to make the switch to laser printing, here are some of the aspects to consider before you make that purchase.

Kodak Easyshare Max Z990 review

Kodak Easyshare Max Z990 review Kodak as we all know, have been around for a very long time, providing great affordable digital cameras to the masses, but they haven’t often ventured into the what I would call ‘Beginner photographer’ market. By this I mean the Bridge camera as this is often seen as the stop gap between a blooming photographers becoming a professional user, the obvious next step after a bridge camera is a DSLR which are A LOT more expensive than this one.

I have in for review a brand new Bridge camera from Kodak named- Kodak Easyshare Max Z990. Will this stack up against the competition or fall flat on its face due to relative inexperience in the field of bridge cameras?

Read on to find out.

Epson Stylus Office BX625FWD review

bx625fwd This week we’re continuing our look at all-in-one printers available at the moment with the Epson Stylus Office BX625FWD, a 4-in-1 office printer.

This model features duplex printing, faxing, copying and has built in WiFi and 6.3cm colour screen on the control panel.

The machine is by no means small but with so many features crammed in to one package does it do everything well or are there compromises being made?

Epson B-310N printer review

epson-b-310n8 When looking for a workgroup printer most people would go straight for a network laser printer. Typically laser printers are faster and more economical to run. However, there’s recently been a resurgence of workgroup inkjet printers with various models from Canon, HP and Epson alike.

The advantage of inkjet over Laser is the use of ‘wet’ or liquid ink that’s just a bit brighter than the power print of a laser printer. Add glossy paper in to the mix and the right inkjet printer is capable of producing photo quality prints that rival photo lab prints.

This week Matt and I have been using the Epson B-310N, one of their newer business inkjet colour printers that was released last year. We’ve been putting it through its paces and have put it to good use here in the office.

So can an inkjet printer really compete with a similarly priced laser? Read on to see what we think!
