Toshiba Canvio Basics – Special Edition – 2TB Reviewed

Tuesday, September 14th, 2021

Caught up in the allure of gloriously fast NVM.e SSDs, I sometimes forget that the maligned “spinning rust” drives of yore and old are still a great solution for data archival and backups. Think I’ve found some cold storage for my Steam Deck! pic.twitter.com/zvie8WNuNI — Phil Howard (@Gadgetoid) August 25, 2021 At a third the […]

Kioxia U365 256GB USB Flash Drive Reviewed

Tuesday, August 24th, 2021

Kioxia’s U365 flash drive is what I’d describe as “big, but slow.” Weighing in at 256GB the drive I tested is far beyond the capacity you might need for “sneaker net” transporting of files between computers. USB in. USB out! pic.twitter.com/Uf7YQuELsi — Phil Howard (@Gadgetoid) August 24, 2021 I decided to use it with Ventoy, […]

Samsung SPF-105P Digital Photo Frame Reviews

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

I take a look at the Samsung SPF-105P digital photo frame. I’ve always thought of digital photo frames as somewhat of a stop-gap technology. A holdover until we have a display technology so compact and so ubiquitous that, to many of us, printing our photos becomes a lost, dark art, much like writing with a […]

Samsung U10 HD Pocket Video Camera Review

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

HD Pocket Video cameras seem to be taking the world by storm, in a thundering cloud of mediocrity that makes me truly baffled as to why you’d bother wasting money on one that would be best put towards, for example, a Panasonic compact camera with 720p AVCHD support. Sure, the latter is a little bigger, […]

Proporta Maya and Hard Digital Camera Cases Video Review

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Whilst watching import jobs tick over slowly but surely, and waiting for my Samsung U10 video review to up load, I took some time to give you a glimpse at the Proporta Maya Camera Case and Proporta Protective Hard Camera Case, both of which are pretty good offerings for pretty different usage cases.

V-Tech Kidizoom Pro First Impressions Review

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

Every now and then I’ve hopefully picked up a toy camera from a store shelf, intrigued by the whole concept of nurturing my daughters early interest in Gadgets. Unfortunately, these always turn out to be simplistic toys which “simulate” the functionality of digital cameras with the basic sounds and aesthetic of the real deal.

Pico “Really Tiny” Bluetooth Dongle From MobileFun

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

At the beginning of 2009 I acquired a Sandberg USB Bluetooth dongle, and some time later a Sandberg USB Wifi Adaptor. Both of these products are impressively, absurdly small but neither of them come even close to this particular little bluetooth gem which redefines the category of svelte, sleek USB bluetooth adaptors and delivers a […]

TrekPod Goes XL

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

I posted a brief bit of coverage on the TrekPod Hiking Staff cum Tripod back in June of 2008 (Wow, it’s really 2009 now!). It was clearly a solid product in both build and performance because JP Distribution have followed up and brought the Trek-Tech TrekPod XL to the UK. Weighing in at a paltry […]

Sandberg Multi Card Reader Reviewed

Sunday, August 31st, 2008

Yes, yes, I know card readers are boring and you can’t get enough choice these days. I just wanted to draw a little attention to SandBergs new card reader which differs itself by being… well… really freaking small. It’s a great companion to a PS3 or laptop and is absurdly portable and pocketable for something […]

Ricoh GR Digital II – hands on review

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

by Johnus Maximus If you are looking for a ‘point and shoot’ digital camera, then you may want to take a look at the Ricoh GR Digital II. Compact, well built and extremely customisable, this successor to the Ricoh GR Digital has plenty to offer photography enthusiasts, but priced a little over £300 it’s perhaps […]
