    HP 5210 HD 1080p Webcam Review

    In my line of work, the webcam is an invaluable tool. Channeling my journalistic-Scorsese, I can conduct video interviews, reviews and how-to videos. I’ve been getting along just fine, using the variety baked into my current laptop of choice. I grumble here and there about their knack for jerky play when recording video calls, clunky software utilities and poor resolutions. My love-hate relationship is perhaps, why I don’t own any of the best webcams on my more gamer-obsessed desktop computer. […]

    Canon PowerShot A4000 IS 16 Megapixel Digital Camera Review

    Freshly dipping  your toes in the deep and expansive world of photography can be an exciting endeavor. But choosing the right device to properly baby-step into this new realm can be daunting. Most fresh new photographers go for the point-and-click variety of beginner cameras. If that’s where you choose to start, then Canon’s PowerShot A4000 IS 16 megapixel digital camera is a very fine device, through which beginners can effectively hone their craft. For more great cameras, check out this […]

    Samsung NX2000 Smart Camera Review

    Have you been salivating over Samsung’s acclaimed and classically designed NX300 20.3mp compact system camera? Yet your shallow pockets horribly mock your wide-eyed ambition? Understandable! That $749 dollar price tag is enough to give even a wealthier wallet pause. For you Samsung has something similarly powerful for significantly reduced cost of entry. Much like the GoPro Hero5 Session – Best Vlogging Action Camera Under $300. If you want to find other great cameras by reading our best digital camera review. […]

  • Nikon V1 10-Megapixel Digital Camera Review

    Nikon V1 10-Megapixel Digital Camera Review

    I am by no-means a professional photographer. Although, just to get in the more closely guarded press event, I have been known to slap an old 500 series Hassleblad around my neck with a Sharpie’d “PRESS” scribbled on a piece of paper taped to my hat. I do, however, like taking pictures of the great outdoors. While I may not have a photographer’s wealth of professional grade knowledge and equipment at my disposal, I do know what I like and […]

  • Knoll ReGeneration Ergonomic Chair Review

    Knoll ReGeneration Ergonomic Chair Review

    You all can guess what I do for a living. It’s pretty obvious. But did you know I am a professional “sitter”. In fact I think I’m the best at sitting than just about anyone. Writing and reporting, I spend countless hours cultivating this talent. Because of such, my derrière had launched a veritable insurrection accompanied by a siege of chronic back pain. Needless to say, my exalted skills in sitting began to suffer. So the hunt for a posterior […]

  • LG LSM-100 Mouse Scanner Review

    LG LSM-100 Mouse Scanner Review

    The best mouse and scanner in one. I have not owned a printer or a scanner for an embarrassing number of years. Honestly, it’s getting rarer for someone to have the best home scanner automatically on hand. You would think a guy who works in the tech and multimedia industries would at least borrow a clue. Nope! Instead I do things the obscure way, like emailing files to the wife’s job for her to graciously print, using digital signage tools […]

    Skullcandy PLYR2 Review – Wireless Gaming Headset

    “Skullcandy!” I’ve always liked that name. It suggests something fiendishly delicious and dares you to take a bite. So we did. The makers of audio head treats have expanded their offerings. Skullcandy products include many varieties of headphone styles and even more color options. They even dabble in stylish kicks, apparel, and smartphone accessories. What we have today is their new gaming ambassador, the Skullcandy PLYR2 Wireless headset for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC. If you’re looking for the […]

  • Seagate 600 240GB Solid State Drive Review

    Seagate 600 240GB Solid State Drive Review

    If you want the best SSD, check this out. Earlier this month, the accomplished storage sovereigns at Seagate announced a trio of new solid state drives in various sizes, capacity and formats. This is the first time the company has turned its attention to the flash powered drives in a number of years. Lurking in the shadows, they watched as many tried but fell flat against the formidable wall of speedier solutions from OCZ, Intel, Mushkin and Samsung. But now […]

  • Creative Sound BlasterAXX Axx 200 Intelligent Wireless Sound System Review

    Creative Sound BlasterAXX Axx 200 Intelligent Wireless Sound System Review

    It’s been a few weeks since we reviewed the Soundcast Melody 8-way omni-directional Bluetooth speaker. The sound produced envelops an entire room with incredible surround performance. But many will have to donate an organ to afford it. You can imagine my surprise to find a speaker of equal caliber in a smaller form factor and touting a significantly reduced cost of entry. Plus, if you’re tired of using up your best cable ties on sound cables, this wireless speaker won’t […]

    Seagate Wireless Plus 1TB Mobile Storage Drive Review

    Working and playing on the go, over competent mobile devices is real fun stuff-until you hit the ceiling for your storage capacity. When purchasing phones, tablets and laptops we try to aim as high as our wallets will fire. But often our ambition out distances our range. If you don’t need a full TB of storage, read our Hitachi G-Drive Mobile 500GB review instead. If you want a slight upgrade, take a look at our Seagate Backup Plus 1TB portable […]

    Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 Mini PC Review

    Computer processing chip maker AMD is making some well-deserved strides with their new APU (accelerated processing unit).   We’re seeing more companies adopt the chip and incorporate it into mini PC’s for consumer level computing.  We took the Sapphire EDGE Mini PC out for a test run. Despite it’s hard drive that puttered along at a relative snail’s pace, the system was “very good” for general computing and casual gaming. Plus you could crack it open and make some essential upgrades […]

    HP 2311gt Review – 23 Inch 3D LED Monitor

    I strongly believe the push for consumers to buy into 3D monitors, cameras, TVs and the glasses for which to view such tech, is a Hollywood-lead charge. They want you to want–in your home–the same 3D experience “Tinseltown” is serving up in the theaters. So be it! Some will bite and bite down hard. Others are content to fly their banners high in 2-dimensional country.  After all… All that hardware ain’t cheap! For non-3D check out the Samsung UE590 – […]

    Astro Gaming A50 Review – Wireless 7.1 Dolby Digital Gaming Headset

    Anyone who’s read my scribbling on gaming grade cans could tell you, Astro Gaming products are mentioned regularly. Though not the cheapest, you could do a heck of lot worse to your gaming experience as they are some of the best gaming-specific headphone and mic setups on the market. See how the A50 stacks up against a different model by reading our Astro A40 review too. Compare these headphones with our EasySMX Cool 2000 review to make sure you’re making […]
