Benq W1090 Review – the best value projector?

1080P, full HD, 2000 lumens, MHL, HDMI, VGA, AV, VGA, TV, USB,

Size doesn’t matter. It’s quality over quantity. These are the things you tell yourself, but sometimes you have to face the fact that what you have just isn’t big enough, especially if you have a bunch of friends round and they all want to be able to see. Thankfully the nice people in BenQ sent us their W1090 projector to play around with for a little while, so we can turn any large flat surface into a screen. Nice! The unit itself is pretty large, but when you factor in…

Huawei P10 review

Vodafone has very kindly sent over the Huawei P10 for review. This arrived in the UK way back at the end of March 2017. The successor to the highly regarded P9 was eagerly anticipated, did the P10 live up to the strong standard set by the P9? Let’s start at the top and work our way down. If you are looking to purchase the Huawei P10 then you can expect to pay around about £530. Compare that to the smaller flagship from Samsung, the S8 at £649 and the Lg…

AOC Agon AG271QG review

AOC’s new line of AGON displays will have gamers rejoicing. They feature decent specs and features intended to enhance the gaming experience, all at a lower than normal price. Here we are looking at the AG271QG with its 165Hz refresh rate easily noticeable and results in much smoother animation and G-Sync to eliminate screen tearing. Looking around the screen we have a solid metal base with an easily constructed mechanism to allow travel when in position. The underside of this stand is rubberised to avoid slippage. A large, square hole on…

Acer Swift 1 Review

The Swift 1 is the lower end entry in Acer’s Swift lineup. Sitting around the entry level, this is focused on students and perhaps the small home business or a junior computer user. A balancing act of getting price, performance and build quality just right. And it seems to really work. Looking around the device, to the left we have a lonely USB 2.0 port. On the right the power connector, that actually makes an old school PC speaker beep when the plug is inserted or removed. A full sized…

Honor 8 Pro Review – The best value smartphone

It’s no secret, the Honor 8 is easily one of my favourite devices of all time and upon hearing of the launch of the Honor 8 Pro I could hardly contain myself. The Honor 8 is a device I have given to both my wife and daughter as I feel it is the perfect balance between value and elegance. Both have used iPhones in the past, however, has spent the last year with an HTC Eye and Huawei Mate 8 respectively. Moving to the Honor 8 they have expressed deep…

Glovax Pro review

Glovax is an interesting Indiegogo campaign I have managed to get ahold of ahead of time. These striking gloves brag they can tolerate more abuse than any other adventure glove including, cut resistance, anti-skidding, abrasion-resistance, water & oil resistance, flexibility, and comfort! As a gardener, I put them to the test and spent a couple of weekends tackling my jungle with little concern as to the gloves welfare, and they held up pretty well. In the description, we are told the yarn of the gloves is made with special technology contributing…

SpeedLink DECUS RESPEC Gaming Mouse Review

There is no shortage of gaming mice out there, however, the is no one mouse that would suit all hands. Some like smaller mice, lighter, to the point, configurable. Putting a list together of all the things you want from a mouse is actually quite difficult, and you might find the almost perfect combination however it lacks that one little feature that is could well be a deal breaker. The Speedlink Decus Respec has a number of possibilities you might want to consider when on the hunt. Over the last…

Google Home Review

Google reinvented the wheel when it came to the Chromecast. A small, inexpensive piece of hardware that changed the way we used our television. Can they do it again with a speaker that hopes to change the way we deal with life? Thanks to out friends over at Maplin who can provide you with a Google Home of your own. Google have taken a speaker, put their Google Assistant software inside and styled it up to be distinct and attractive in almost every home. From a design point of view,…

Speedlink QUINOX Pro USB Gamepad Review

For years gamepads for PCs were not a thing, now it seems, they have caught up with and even overtake the complex stylings of the console competition. Some prefer them, so, therefore, there is a market. Microsoft and Playstation are forever bettering their input methods from generation to generation and sometimes in between, however with the PC gamers can open a whole next level of customisation and Speedlink knew this, delivering the Quinox Pro. This is a comfortable gamepad, with reconfiguration to the hilt and a price that doesn’t upset.…

Sennheiser PXC 480 Review

Last year, I fell in love with the Sennheiser HD650 with the Apogee groove amplifier. It broke my heart when I had to hand them back, but I have never forgotten them and I pine for them often. They forever changed the way I look at quality headphones. *sniff* Now though, there is a new potential love interest in the form of the Sennheiser PXC 480 – a £259.99, noise cancelling, folding, closed back set of cans that are designed for portability without compromising on sound quality. Plus, they have…
