Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Generation)

The Amazon Echo Dot just got a refresh from Amazon, with cuter looks and extra fabric, but here are our thoughts on the original Echo Dot that's already established itself in many a smart home. When Amazon launched the first Amazon Echo way back in 2014, it seemed a ground-breaking move for smart home tech […]

Amazon Echo Show review

This definitely isn’t Amazon’s first rodeo – the company has two smart screen products currently on the market – the original Echo Show and the smaller Echo Spot. While the Spot is an incredibly cute, quirky little guy with charm in spades, the 1st gen Echo Show was a harder sell at launch, shipping with […]

LG SK8 Soundbar

LG has been one of the most innovative soundbar brands in recent times, and that spirit continues in some ways with the SK8 – at least in terms of what it offers for its money: Despite costing less than $400/£400, it supports Chromecast Built-in connectivity, Google Assistant control, and – even though it only boasts […]

Samsung Q900R 8K QLED TV

With most people – *cough* content providers – only just getting to grips with 4K resolution, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Samsung had gone nuts by introducing the world’s first true 8K TV. With hardly any native 8K content available out there, what's the point of spending big to get your hands on so […]

Philips OLED+ 903 (65OLED+903)

When Philips announced its OLED 803 television back in February, it marked a notable turn away from the company's high-end LCD range to the promise of OLED’s superior displays. It was surprising, sure, but the 803 wouldn't be the only OLED from the European arm of Philips – we'd also be treated to the spectacular […]

Creative Sound BlasterX G6

Getting a sound boost on a PC used to be invasive – requiring you to buy and install a sound card to get the best audio from your PC. Portable DACs and amplifiers have made it easier to veer away from built-in tinny sound, but console gamers haven't always been so lucky.  But that's a […]

Plantronics BackBeat Go 810

The Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 are one of our favorite wireless headphones as they offer excellent sound, build quality and features for the price.  That said, if you don’t want to spend $200 (£230, AU$250) on a set of wireless headphones but still want active noise cancellation (ANC), the all-new Plantronics BackBeat Go 810 are […]

Yamaha RX-V485

The A/V receiver is nothing new, but what is new is the fact that A/V receivers are now getting smart features, better connectivity, and more features for the money.  That’s great news for consumers, who might want receivers with support for surround sound and wireless standards like AirPlay, without having to shell out the cash […]

Brand-owner TP Vision’s attempts to re-establish Philips as a major player on the European TV scene are progressing very nicely indeed, with some truly outstanding Philips OLED TV sets at the high end of the market.  That said, the Philips 55PUS6753 4K TV, reviewed here, is trying to make a quality mark on the lower […]

Samsung HW-N850 Soundbar

The Samsung HW-N850 comes hot on the heels of the manufacturer’s flagship HW-N950 ‘Cinematic’ soundbar, and is essentially the same but without the wireless rear speakers. That means you still get upward and side-firing speakers at the front, a wireless subwoofer and support for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Since the soundbar itself is identical to […]

Sony A8F OLED TV

When Sony launched their flagship A1 TVs in 2017, cinema fans embraced the combination of Sony processing and OLED technology. The only downside faced by the TV was it’s design, which some complained wasn’t angled for best viewing experience and couldn’t be hung on a wall. However, this year, Sony has revisited the flaws and […]

UE Wonderboom Freestyle collection

The UE Wonderboom isn’t a new player in the Bluetooth speaker category, it’s been there from a while and like most Logitech speakers, it’s got a great build and design. What’s new with the Wonderboom Freestyle speaker is its funky new design, that adds up to the style quotient to make it a “fashion accessory” […]
