Great performance is paired with excellent internet services including BBC iPlayer. At this price, you can't ask for more.

Car accessories & equipment Sat nav

A reasonable navigation device, but the TV interface is poorly designed, there's no headphone socket and it can't be used on the move. There are better satnavs available for similar money.

Projectors

The first truly usable LED projector. However, the XJ-A135's image quality isn't particularly impressive given the relatively high price, but it does have extras such as WiFi and a built-in media player.

Digital photo frames

Good looking, easy to use and with built-in WiFi, the Pulse has a great-quality screen. However, the high price means it's not the best value.
