Google Home Review

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

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

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…

Aukey Wireless sport earphones review

With the summer holidays approaching fast you may be thinking what essentials do I need to make that journey less painful.  There is nothing worse than that feeling you have forgotten your earphones may it be a plane journey or a bus journey.  If you have not already gone wireless and purchased a pair of Bluetooth earphones treat yourself now as being wireless is cheaper than you imagine. These earphones can be found here in Amazon.co.uk for £17.99. Out of the box, these earphones feel fantastic, the magnetic earpieces really…

Speedlink Ultor Review

Speedlink Ultor Review

Speedlink have sent over their latest Ultor Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and a keyboard that can be considered as a portable offering. Featuring Red switches the Ultro loses the numerical pad leaving the keyboard much shorter than other on the market and a lower price tag than some of the competitors. This mechanical keyboard has an impressive metallic red chassis buried under its keys. There are only small portions of the chassis peeking out in various places as Speedlink have cut down on any excess to make a keyboard truly too…

Elyxr air wireless earbuds review

Elyxr air wireless earbuds review

There has long been a quest for truly wireless headphones, but finally, the technology exists to create a set of diminutive ear buds with a battery and Bluetooth circuitry small enough to not only be functional, but actually practical. Over the last week or two, I have been putting the Elyxr Air wireless Bluetooth headphones through their paces. There is obviously going to be comparisons drawn between these and the much-publicised Airpods, and whilst they are certainly similar in concept, the execution is much different. I personally prefer the noise…

Venturer PrimePro 12 TS review

Venturer PrimePro 12 TS review

The world of the laptop and two-in-one device is a crowded one at the moment and Windows 10 has really excelled at providing an operating system that is both lightweight and features packed for the budget to mid-range device to run quite well. Venturer look to be making waves and this environment and whilst their latest device, the PrimePro 12 TS, is not without its flaws, the sum of the parts is commendable. The Prime Pro 12 TS easily feels like they have learnt from the mistakes of previous models….

Vodafones Smart Ultra 7 review

Vodafones Smart Ultra 7 review

Vodafone’s Smart Ultra 7 has some tough competition. The higher low range phones are seriously stepping up their game when it comes to value and quality for the money. The Ultra 7 has its work cut out for it. Looking around the device. The front has the forward facing camera complete with a LED flash. A nice addition for the selfie lover, however, I can’t imagine too many selfie lovers looking at this phone, save for some kids who are being treated to a phone from the folks. The right…

Dubleup Credit Sized Power Bank review

Dubleup Credit Sized Power Bank review

Powerbanks are increasingly becoming a must-have accessory over the last few years and manufacturers are going to extra lengths the make their just that little bit more attractive than the rest. Be it, adding a flashlight, waterproofing, huge capacity or artwork. However, one company looks to be adding a particularly attractive feature, size, or lack thereof. As capacities increase we see batteries getting bigger and more cumbersome, requiring a bag to carry them. The Dubleup aims to be the backup battery that you can take with you at all times…

EasyAcc 13000mAh Power Bank Review

EasyAcc 13000mAh Power Bank Review

I love practical gadgets, things that can not only really make life easier, but actually get you out of a bind when the poop hits the fan. The way modern life is for most of us, your mobile device is never far away, often, never out of your hand. Manufacturers have spent billions investing in battery tech to provide enough power to enable your device to withstand heavy or prolonged use, but there are times when it’s just not enough.There are many portable power packs available as a solution to…
