BenQ GL2580HM review

Picking up a screen for £135 is pretty easy right now. There is no shortage of displays at the budget end, however, how do you know if you are getting value for money. There is more to a screen than just a price tag and finding a large one for £135 might not be to all tastes. The BenQ GL2580HM is an office screen. Using it in the home for anything other than work will land the user with extreme disappointment. Whilst you can use it for gaming and media…

Gardigo UV Flying Insect Exterminator Review

Recently, in the United Kingdom we have seen an uprising of recycling and whilst encourageable it’s turning out to be a bit of a pain when you consider having to separate food waste from renewables from general household rubbish.  The local council has provided food waste bins to help homeowners dispose of their food waste appropriately.  However, if you ever mention this to any homeowners with a food waste bin, this proves to be a particular annoyance.  A receptacle that has no place in the kitchen due to the rotten…

Benq EW2770QZ review

Benq, EW2770QZ, screen, monitor, review, uk

The BenQ EW2770QZ is a bezel-less offering with a fairly hefty price tag, however, there are a few solid features to justify. At 27-inches the screen is a nice size, lacking a thick frame, however, it doesn’t quite manage 4K. This Benq has an impressively slight bezel measuring only 8mm, however there, is a black band between the bezel as the edge of the display. The screen sits on a plastic stand with a metallic look. That same material covers the rear of the unit, The stand attaches using built…

Blackberry KeyOne Review

blackberry, keyone, review, uk

It’s safe to say that BlackBerry is back, the KeyOne is one of the most exciting phones to be released in the last year. It dares to play with the trend of the candy bar that is ever so popular. Whilst it’s hardly the revolution of the Priv it’s a nice amalgamation of the two form factors and providing a physical keyboard that has really been lost to time. Built by TCL, as opposed to BlackBerry, the KeyOne was codenamed the Mercury before release. The rumours of the qwerty keyboard being…

Motion Sensor Activated Under The Bed LED Strip Light Review

Motion, Sensor, Activated, Under The Bed, LED, Strip, Light, review, uk

Received very fast and this is where the enjoyment begins Bed light offers a motion sensor lighting system that aids you during the night or to give you low-level light when needed in multiple different scenarios. I personally used it in its main form to aid me during the night as I didn’t need to find the lamp switch or search for my torch on my smartphone. In the box you will receive a detailed information, UK 3 pin plug 2x 1.5m LED lighting strips, 2x 1.5m motion sensors and…

iFrogz Impulse Duo Dual Driver Wireless Bluetooth headphones Review

It’s always nice to be pleasantly surprised by a product. I had the opportunity to play around with the iFrogz Impulse Duo dual driver wireless Bluetooth headphones (not an easy title to get your tongue around). At around £39, these are on the lower end of the pricing spectrum and I am generally wary of companies that start with a small “i” and swap “s” for “z”, so it’s fair to say that expectations were not exactly high. The headphones were nicely presented in a simple but elegant box and…

Brainwavz B200 Audiophile grade earphones review

Brainwavz, dual, balanced, armature, B200, high performance, audiophile, grade, earphones, headphones, uk

I must confess that I was not familiar with the brand when I was given word that their latest headphones were coming to us for review. They operate in the audiophile circles of the headphone world, but their aim is to keep the cost of their products at the more reasonable end of the spectrum. When I was given these in ear headphones, all I knew was that they were audiophile grade and cost £156. The first thing that struck me when I was handed the box is that it…

Archos Diamond Alpha Review

Archos, diamond, alpha, nubia, sony, android, google, z17, mini, dual camera, qualcomm, snapdragon, 652, 4gb,

Recently I have been having a blast with mid-range phones. Right now this is the most interesting and satisfying area of mobile phone technology. As we have discussed at length on our Podcast mid-range phones are where all the action is, best value for money and most innovation. Lately, we have looked at efforts from Honor, Vodafone and Huawei. Each of which has been superb and highly recommended. Crazily, I’ll have to extend this status to the Archos Diamond Alpha, by far and away the best phone they have ever…

AOC PDS241 review

AOC, PDS241, porsche, 1080p, screen, monitor, panel, ips, uk, desktop, computer

You apply the words Porsche Design to anything and it can conjure up images a particular brand of car, or wildly expensive Huawei or Blackberry phones, maybe some sunglasses, watches or perhaps a robust Lacie portable hard drive. It would seem that AOC has managed to snare the design of Studio F. A. Porsche, apply it to a couple of their screens and bring it in at a reasonable price, albeit with its limitations. AOC have produced the PDS241 and the slightly larger 27-inch version, the PDS271. They decided to…
