Roccat Khan Pro Review

Roccat is a company I have never heard of before, as a light gamer, I guess that is okay to admit. I was surprised to see Roccat has over 10 years of gaming experience and looking at their range it would seem they are a pretty heavy player in the industry and should be taken seriously. The Roccat Khan Pro is a good-looking headset. Combining some modern aesthetics with a quirky art style give the Roccat a flavour familiar to Razer, however, the slivery colouring of the art keep any…

BenQ EW3270ZL review

The BenQ EW3270ZL is a generously proportioned 32-inch monitor aimed at the professional. Sitting at a 2k, 2560 x 1440 resolution with a wide-gamut 100% sRGB panel and the BenQ’s collection of health-conscious tricks this is a screen with a lot to get excited about. The EW3270ZL is a well-built screen. Right from the spring-loaded screws for attaching the monitor to this base. The 32-inch panel mounted in a frame that’s well light on the bezel but without the styling to make it a fashion statement. On the bottom, in…

BenQ PD2500Q monitor review

BenQ is continuing to diversify their range with a screen specifically targeted at Graphic designers, video editors and photographers who require a more precise level of colour representation than pushing the hardware for maximum number of frames per second. Taking the time to present the colours as they would appear in the real world adds a lot of value to the screen for those professionals named earlier. The BenQ PD2500Q is a designer focused monitor that comes calibrated by professional engineers to produce 100% sRGB and Rec. 709 colour precision.…

RHA MA750 Wireless Headphones review

Headphones have always been about compromise. You sacrificed quality for privacy back in the day when you plug headphones into your hi-fi, then quality for portability with the advent of the Walkman. When Bluetooth technology became commonplace, you sacrificed quality for going wireless, size and weight for battery life. That’s the way it’s always been, but in recent years, that sacrifice has become less and less. RHA recently sent us a set of their £150 MA750 wireless Bluetooth headphones to play with. So have they redressed the balance? Ok, to…

D-Link OMNA review

Just stop for a minute and think of all the cool stuff you have in your house. Even the average household has thousands of pounds worth of gadgets, gear and possessions. We’ve never had it so good! But we’ve also never had so much that thieving little scumbags won’t try to get their grubby little mitts on. Nowadays people concern themselves with all sorts of online security options, but how much thought is spared for physical security. One handy option is the Omna home camera from D-Link. It’s a dinky…

Philips 40-inch 4k UHD Curved Led Display BDM4037UW review

Setting up a 40-inch ultra HD curved LCD monitor on your desk a the main display it pretty insane. As you sit back and think “what is the world coming to” there is a shimmer of excitement that flows across you as boot the computer. “The bigger the screen, the better the computer,” a philosophy I remember from the 80’s when my brother upgraded from a 15” VGA screen to 17” SVGA, the potential was limitless. Adding the ability to display up to four, full HD, inputs simultaneously the Philips’…

Philips 272P7VPTKEB 27″ Brilliance 4k Screen review

The Philips 27-inch brilliance 4K UHD LCD monitor with a P line power sensor is a particularly attractive, if a little expensive, option for upgrading to a 4K screen. Sitting at a whopping 27 inches the Philips might sound like it’s going to be a large, desk hogging display however the minimal bezels and the elegant presentation leads more to a striking addition to your desk than something that is going to be ultimately overpowering. Like many monitors on the market, this Phillips has a black plastic construction. It’s difficult to…

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…
