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…

Oaxis InkCase for the iPhone 7 Review

Oaxis, InkCase, i7, iphone, case, iphone 7, eink, 2nd screen, second screen

Ever looked at your iPhone 7 and thought “you know what would make this phone better – more screens!”? Well someone at InkCase certainly did and came up with a protective case for your iPhone that has an e-ink screen on the back. The first thing you notice as soon as you remove the case from the package is just how unnaturally light it seems, especially for something that contains a screen, battery, Bluetooth and changing system. It has a very low profile so it really doesn’t add much bulk…

Sennheiser Flex 5000 review

Sennheiser, Flex 5000, home, audio, remote, listening, TV, audio, headphones, transmitter, receiver,

A challenge sent my way is to identify a foolproof way of watching television in bed whilst a partner is sleeping. Certainly most people would get around this by using an iPad or tablet with a set of headphones however what if you want that big screen effect or perhaps have a TV nailed to the bedroom wall that doesn’t get as much use anymore as you are often having to resort to the tablet method to catch up on some crucial TV in the darkness of night. Most are…

Speedlink CALADO Silent Wireless Mouse Review

Speedlink, mouse, wireless, silent, quiet, dpi, 600, budget, uk, travel, portable, computer, laptop

Portable travel mice are popular at the moment with every retailer seeming to do something along the lines of a portable assistant for your laptop or tablet whether it be a Bluetooth connection,  focusing on its own proprietary wireless link or just a simple wire that plugs into USB the portable, the smaller mouse is big business. Enter Speedlink with a Calado silent wireless mouse. We have looked this number of SpeedLink peripherals in the past and I’m generally quite pleased with the quality versus the price. The same can be…

BenQ GL2706PQ Review – A great screen with huge benefits

LED, benq, GL2706PQ, ips, screen, monitor, uk computer, panel, energy

The BenQ GL2706PQ 27-inch LED monitor is a large, good looking screen with a has decent resolution and looks to be a Jack of All Trades, Master of Much! The GL2706PQ is catchily titled and look as you would expect a screen to look. A thick bezel, measuring around 1 inch of black plastic on top of 27”s of matte screen. Thankfully the size of the 27” screen distracts greatly from the bezels and helps cut a more acceptable aesthetic. In saying that, the screen is pretty heavy, weighing in…

BenQ GW2406Z review

BenQ, GW2406Z, review, uk, computer, tech, screen, display

Budget screens are always something folks are wary of however BenQ has been hitting most of the right notes for some time now with their recent line and the GW2406Z is another perfectly tuned chime. The GW2406Z is notable right out of the box for having very little in the bezel department, looks can be deceiving as the screen doesn’t quite meet the minimal bezel, and there is a 2mm black line between the two. However, for argument sake, I would consider this to be one of the smallest bezels,…

Vodafone Smart V8 Review

Vodafone, Smart V8, Android, Google, business, qualcomm, snapdragon, 3gb, 435

Picking up great value for money seems to be getting more and more common these days. Vodafone has really put together a very nice combination of high-end features combined with quality materials and a cheap price tag. The Vodafone Smart V8 is pretty amazing value for money and worth checking out. Looking around the device on the top we have a small microphone hole plus a 3.5 mm headphone jack. There are also two incisions for the antenna array. To the right of the screen is the simple volume rocker,…

The Boy With His Head Stuck In A Book Review

augmented, reality, augmented reality, book, children, child, kids, literature

A book on a tech blog? That’s a little bit of a stretch especially when the content of the book isn’t tech related. However, in this case, the book is the tech! Or at least provides an avenue to the tech. The Boy With His Head Stuck in a Book is a book featuring Augmented Reality. A charming tale with a novel approach however not without its flaws. There is a lot more going on behind the publication of the book than meets the eye as you can imagine the…
