Fevzi Turkalp, the Gadget Detective, joins Bill Buckley on BBC Radio Berkshire to discuss the latest tech news and reviews. This week; six ideas for Christmas gifts or those treating themselves.

First Gadget of the Week is the Soundcore Motion+ bluetooth speaker. This highly impressive bluetooth speaker gives around 30 watts of output via 4 speakers and passive subwoofer with a 12 hour battery and is waterproof, and is arguably the best portable bluetooth speaker available for under £100. Scoring 4.5 out of 5

Second Gadget of the Week is Snagit 2020 from Techsmith. This handy screen capturing software allows you to grab whatever is on the screen, including video and scrolling windows. Scoring 4.5 out of 5

Third Gadget of the Week is the Minisforum range of PCs. Featuring all the latest processors and offering upgradeability belying their tiny size these are affordable PCs that won't take up your deskspace. Scoring 4 out of 5

Fourth Gadget of the Week is Crucial's range of upgrades, such as memory and SSD storage, at affordable prices. Their website is able to scan your PC to ensure whatever you buy will be compatible. Scoring 4 out of 5

Fifth Gadget of the Week is the Korg NTS-1 kit-form synthesizer. This highly capable and reasonably priced under £100 synthesizer fits in the palm of your hans and comes with all you need to easily build it. Featuring a keyboard it can also be used as a professional effects unit, and has some incredible sounds thanks to professional tech derived from Korg's other products. Scoring 4.5 out of 5

Sixth Gagdet of the Week is Spitfire Audio's range of soundpacks for musicians, in particular the superb BBC Symphonic Orchestra Discovery Pack which is ideal for composers and is free if you sign up and wait 14 days. Scoring 4.5 out of 5
