Schneider Optics iPro Lens System Review

It’s no lie to say that digital imaging has replaced convention film pretty much across the board. Digital cameras by their very nature can provide simpler routes to taking good pictures — with a memory card being the only “price” to pay after the image has been taken, and the...

Belkin G1V1000 @TV Plus Review

- - 5 Comments

 Some reviews are difficult not because of the technology discussed, but because the purpose of that technology doesn’t come across as having any value. We can all say that TV has its good moments amidst the bad — and that’s why we watch so much of it. But not in...

VIZIO E320i 32” Smart LED TV Review

- - 8 Comments

A TV doesn’t have to be huge to be worth watching. Case in point: VIZIO’s E320i 32” Smart LED TV. It’s bigger than a monitor at 32-inches, but sized small enough to fit in areas where a bigger screen would crowd out the surroundings. That doesn’t mean the E320i is...

Anthropics Portrait Professional Studio 10 Review

  Digital cameras have eliminated the need for film, but they haven’t eliminated the need for the person being photographed to look good.

If variety is the spice of life, then Apple audio docks are plain-vanilla. I say that because they’re just do darn many of them — everywhere you turn some company has made or is making an audio doc designed for an iOS device — and using that large pin connector...

A short time back, I had the opportunity to meet with HIFIMAN’s head guru, Dr. Fang Bian. We went over some of the past problems in creating audio products for a discerning public in the age of digital audio playback devices, low resolution files and where the term “Audiophile” seems...

i-mego THRONE Over Ear Headphones Review

- - 0 Comments

Headphones used to be dull — boring even. All t hey did was go over your ears and convey the sound from your audio device. That’s it. Did they need to look good? No way! In fact the companies used to take pride in how clunky they appeared because…that bespoke...

Wicked Audio SOLUS Headphones Review

- - 0 Comments

Headphones have been around in one form or another ever since the first radio was created for consumer use. Today we get “brand names” based off of celebrities and athletes and music producers. This all seems to indicate that the appeal is directed emotionally at the potential buyer. And it...
