GenevaSound S iPod And iPhone Dock Reviewed

Sunday, August 15th, 2010

It’s been a long time since I took a look at an iPod or iPhone dock, in fact it’s been a while since I looked at much other than iPad and iPhone cases. However, I’m back in full force with a look at the GenevaSound S. £300 of punchy sound packaged into a pedestal mounted […]

Samsung SP-M225 Projector Review

Friday, August 13th, 2010

First things first, it’s vital to point out that the Samsung SP-M225 is marketed as an office projector, intended primarily for business use. What this means to anyone looking to employ the SP-M225 in the living room, as I did for this review, is that rather than a nice letterbox projection common to cinema, you […]

Sony SRS DB500 2.1 Speakers Review

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

As much as they try to pretend otherwise with their Hi-Fi audio appearance the Sony SRS DB500 are PC speakers through and through or, at a pinch, a ridiculously over the top outlet for the tunes on your portable audio player. They’re great for gaming, but you will do them a better justice pumping out […]

Samsung XL2370 23″ LED Monitor Review

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Not content with looking at simply one LED monitor, I sourced a competing product from Samsung and managed to obtain the 23″ XL2370 which also runs at 1920×1080. I’ll come right up and say that the Samsung XL2370 is the inferior product in many respects, and it’s evident that either the Samsung brand has given […]

LG W2486L 24″ LED Monitor Reviewed

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

Face it, LCD monitors have been boring for years and the phrases “high contrast” and “2ms” just aren’t enough to wake me from plain ignoring them. However, recently someone out there in gadget world woke up and decided it was time to start implementing thin LCD display technologies into desktop monitors where, although space may […]

Samsing SP-P410M Portable LED Projector Review

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

In an attempt to make the most difficult to remember product codes in existence, Samsung have produced the SP-P410M, the successor to the P400 which ups the ante by including photo, music and video playback capabilities in the projector itself. Simply plug in a USB memory stick, external hard disk, phone in mass storage mode, […]

Samsung A600 1080p Projector Review

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

I never thought, when testing the excellent and pleasantly compact inFocus X9, that I would move so quickly onto trying out a 1080p projector. But the offer was on the table to try out a Samsung A600, their “entry-level” 1080p home cinema projector, which is quite the behemoth in comparison and a much less practical […]

Intempo Bluetooth Speaker Review

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

Stereo bluetooth headphones are all well and good when you want to get audio out of your phone for personal listening, but what about using it as a replacement for a kitchen radio, or a bit of living room easy listening? Unless you’ve got an iPhone, the chances of picking up a purpose built dock […]

Roberts Revival RD50 Review Old Style New Sound

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

Without a shadow of a doubt, the best looking radio from the Roberts camp is the Revival. Whether you dig classic styling or not, the good looks of the revival compared to the rest of the Roberts range are unquestionable. This may be indicative more of the garish, unrefined and bland designs of its cousins. […]
