G-Form Sternum Shirt Review

Are you a “DIY” -- Do It Yourselfer? Doesn’t matter if that means you like to assemble science kits or build furniture -- it’s all about getting your hands onto something and “bending” it to your will (metaphorically speaking)....

Yamaha YHT-S401 Home Theater Package Review

  I imagine most people know what a sound bar is because of the name. But what isn’t so well-known is that there’s varied technologies being used in those now on the market -- all the same, they aren’t! So I have high hopes for...

D-Link DIR-645 Whole-Home Router 1000 Review

A wireless router has one job -- to provide a signal that the “clients” (i.e., laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc.) can pick up within a reasonable distance. And for that signal to be stable and consistent. By its very nature, ...

Lots of folks have home offices these days -- and a problem that they hadn’t anticipated. Which is the fact that these same folks have eschewed landlines for their cell phones. Now we won’t even go into whether the reception is...

ViewSonic VP2765 AMVA 27-inch LED Review

 Let’s start with what’s different about this monitor versus others in its 27-inch class: AVMA technology. What’s that, you say? It’s “advanced MVA panel” technology. But what does that mean, you ask? Brighter and more accurate...

Swann RemoteCam Video Camera and Recorder DVR-410 Review

I’ve always been intrigued by “spy” devices -- maybe it’s my love of gadgets, tempered by all those James Bond movies I watched growing up. Regardless, the idea of doing things in “plain” sight” is cool. And hey, it’s even usef...

Sanus Furniture Mount System FMS01-B1 Review

One of the benefits of the advent of flat-panel TVs is that you can attach them to walls. This not only creates that much-vaunted "video window" that SciFi has touted for years -- along with adding a striking decor touch -- but...

HIFIMAN HM-101 USB DAC Review

The first time I heard the word “DAC” I thought it was a misspelling of a company that used to send me catalogs of unusual electronic equipment made in dubious places for ridiculously low prices. Of course I eventually learned ...

AOC E2251FWU 22-inch Widescreen USB LED Monitor Review

Portable screens are cool -- the idea of being able to carry around a LCD screen is something that everybody can get into -- explaining why smartphones and tablets are so gosh darn successful. But when it comes to a second moni...

Accessory Power GOgroove SolaceAIR Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset Review

If you're like me, you don't accept compromise -- even if you can't afford to go to the top of the mountain where the "higher priced spread" lives. Take headphones for example. I want a pair that fits easily over my ears, not i...

Behringer U-Phono UFO202 Review

The “home theater” has evolved from “just” a TV -- to including a VCR, followed by a DVD player and now Blu-ray player. But for all the disc-happy folks out there getting their content on optical discs, there’s still plenty of ...
