Sceptre E230BD-FHD 23″ LED TV / Monitor with DVD Player Review

I don’t want to shock you -- but size still matters. As in put away that smartphone or tablet or laptop and look at a screen that’s bigger than your head already. Which in this case is Sceptre's E230BD-FHD 23" LED TV/Monitor wi...

Warpia ConnectHD SWP400VC Review

Let’s get this out of the way first -- ConnectHD is the name for this Warpia video streaming device, since there’s nothing else like it from the company, you can forget about the model # SWP400VC as far as this review goes. And...

Active Thermal Management Cool-slim Component Cooler Review

Most reviews don’t need to start with a history lesson, but this one does. For those who remember the days of tube-based amplifiers, keeping them cool wasn’t just sensible but vital. The reason? Heat isn’t good for electronics,...

ZVOX Audio V-Series Z-BASE 220 Sound Bar Review

The term “home theater” gets bandied about by every manufacturer of a HDTV or Blu-ray player or audio system. To  most of them, a home theater means a compilation of devices that work together to create a theater-like environme...

MOHU Leaf Plus HDTV Indoor Antenna Review

Death and taxes. Now add to that ever rising cable costs for just being able to get a television signal to your HDTV. There may be nothing you can do about the first two, but you can “cut” your cable addiction by finding anothe...

Galaxy Wireless HD Solution WDHI Stick Review

This is going to be one of the simplest reviews I’ll ever do -- and it’s even more astounding because of the level of the technology being put into effect. You’d think that wireless transmitting high-definition video (with mult...

Mitsubishi HC7800D DLP Projector Review

Having cut my teeth, as it were, on a Novabeam which, for all practical purposes was a front projector for the 1980’s -- I always turn to a projector with a sense of wonder and excitement. For those who need to know, a front pr...

Biscotti TV Phone Review

I remember hearing that video chat first appeared when AT&T made special phone booths in Disneyland available to use (as part of a promotion of course). But as far as regular television being part of video chatting, it’s be...

Harman Kardon SB 16 2.1-channel Active Sound Bar Speaker System Review

The first sound bar I ever encountered was, wait for it, a speaker that had been jury rigged to output the sound from a Zenith 19-inch TV. As you can imagine, the concept of speakers outputting the audio from your TV, be it a t...

LG 55LM6700 Cinema 3D Smart LED TV Review

Remember that term “xxx is the ‘new’ black?” Well, 55-inch is the new “standard” size for a flat-panel, at least if you want a big screen image that has enough real-estate to show 3D effects well. LG has more than their share o...
