Expressionist Classic FX2020 Clunky but funky

Altec Lansing’s glossy Expressionist Classic FX2020 stereo speakers sound as good as they look.

ARE you looking for a pair of speakers that look as good as they sound? Then the Altec Lansing Expressionist Classic FX2020 may be right up your alley. These speakers are more for the user who is concerned with style and design.

HIDDEN: The volume controls are well-hidden and difficult to reach.

Conclusion

The Altec Lansing Expressionist Classic FX2020 takes up a wee bit too much desk space, uses unsightly thick wires and lacks a remote.

However, the sound quality is something to appreciate at a reasonable volume and the speakers do not look that bad.

Can’t give Altec Lansing flack for trying to be tasteful with the shiny design.

Pros: Easy setup; decent sound quality.

Cons: No remote; chunky design; lacks power.

Sidewinder X3 Left or right is alright

Sidewinder X3 Left or right is alright

Good news for southpaws and those with small hands. Microsoft has a gaming mouse just for you.

IT SEEMS as if Microsoft has at least been listening to users like me who have been complaining about the size of its Sidewinder series of gaming mice.

Every model so far has been oversized and very firmly right-handed in design, therefore leaving those of us with small- to medium-sized hands looking elsewhere for a more suitable gaming mouse.

However, with the Sidewinder X3, Microsoft seems to have addressed this issue, producing a gaming mouse which is not only a reasonable size, but is also ambidextrous in design.

So does it pass muster in the other important areas of gaming? Well, you’ll just have to read on to find out.


BETTER FIT: The X3 is much smaller than its siblings, making it a better fit for small- to medium-sized hands.

Conclusion

Overall, I like the Sidewinder X3, although there are some qualifications to this.

For one thing, I really would have liked an option to add a bit more weight to my mouse, as the X3 is a tad light for my liking.

However, this is really a personal preference, since I know some gamers actually like their mice to be as light and nimble as possible.

My only real complaint is that the one gaming mouse that Microsoft makes that is both ambidextrous in design and small enough to fit my hands is a relatively entry-level product.

Come on Microsoft, I’m sure there is a place for a mouse like this in the upper end of the market — perhaps one that’s both wireless, slightly heavier and with more customisable buttonsSince the price is actually quite reasonable for a gaming mouse, however, so should warrant a serious look if you’re on a budget.

Pros: Ambidextrous design; suitable for small- and medium-sized hands.

Cons: Not enough customisable buttons; a little lightends.

Skyla Memoir FS80 Reaching for the Skyla

Skyla Memoir FS80 Reaching for the Skyla

The Skyla Memoir FS80 proves that a built-in scanner is what all digital photo frames need.

JUDGING from the number of digital photo frames on the market you’d think that sales of these gadgets has got to be booming. However, I don’t personally know anybody who actually owns one.

Be that as it may, the Skyla digital photo frame has an interesting feature that makes it stand out from other me-too digital photo frames — it has a scanner built right into it. While this sounds a little strange, but it actually makes sense.

The idea is that instead of using a PC to scan and transfer your photos to the Skyla, you just scan them directly into the device via the built-in scanner, no PC necessary.

DOUBLE DUTY: Scanning photos into the Skyla is a simple affair, and you don’t need a PC to do it.

Conclusion

For what it offers, the Skyla is not bad at all.

The screen is certainly very nice and the scanner is actually a useful addition to the device, making it extremely convenient to transfer prints that you have right into the Skyla, without having to connect it to a PC at all.

For a list price of RM899, it is a little pricey (thought not exorbitant) compared to a basic digital photo frame.

Pros: Built-in scanner; good ­quality display; video and audio playback included.

Cons: A little pricey.
