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 […]

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 […]

NextBase Click 7 In-Car DVD Player

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

I was perusing Halfords a couple of days ago, admiring pink steering wheel covers and seat covers emblazoned with teddy bears in a thoroughly manly fashion, when the in-car DVD Player display caught my eye. Dominating over half of the display was the new NextBase Click & Go range. The range consists of a 7″ […]

Cygnett Groove Fusion Earphones Review

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

Before I start I should probably say that I’m not particularly a fan of earplug style earphones. I tend to find them somewhat intrusive, however I put this aside to write this review. First off. How do the Cygnett Groove Fusion ‘phones look? They’re pretty much identical to every other earplug style earphone out there, […]

Qstik EVOQ Bluetooth Headset Review

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

You can pick up a tolerably good Bluetooth headset right now for just £9.95 and not only make yourself look like a cyborg with the daringly shaped ear-piece but connect the supplied stereo earbuds and rock out to your music from an A2DP compatible phone. I’m referring to the Qstik EVOQ Bluetooth Headset which has […]

Sennheiser CX550 Style II In-Ear Earphones

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Review by Rob Farley The Sennheiser CX550 Style II earphones are your typical, in-ear, noise blocking affair. These noise blocking, sound producing earplugs are loved by as many as they are hated and their form factor is as close as you can get to the Marmite of ‘phones. Most of the “hate it” camp, however, […]

iPhone 3G Protective DomeSkin

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

Do you remember the days when interchangeable face-plates and casing on phones was all the rage? These days, everything from dinky feature phones to behemoth smart-phones flatly refuses to be defaced with cheap market-stall *bling*, but not all is lost. The world of device skinning has exploded into a wealth of online sites. They all […]

Proporta Universal Emergency Travel Charger

Monday, June 15th, 2009

I’ve been using the Proporta Universal Emergency Travel Charger on the odd occasion for a while now. It was a difficult device to actually test in the short run, because you don’t really know if it fits the bill until you have an emergency I-really-need-to-charge-this situation. I didn’t quite get there, but managed to try […]

Proporta DVD/Netbook Case Reviewed

Monday, June 15th, 2009

I’ve thus far resisted the temptation to pick up a portable DVD player favoring, instead, a humble, hand-holdable PMP to pacify a bored, car-bound baby. I picked up the Proporta DVD/Netbook case after seeing it in the results for Samsung NC10 cases, alas it doesn’t actually fit the Samsung NC10 nor any other 10″ Netbook […]

Griffin iPod iPhone Powerdock

Monday, January 19th, 2009

The Griffin PowerDock is one of those products that does exactly what it says on the tin in a largely unexciting but elegant way. Capable of charging either two or four iPods, be they iPhones, iPod Touches or any other iPod product bar the shuffle, the PowerDock is an attractive desktop stand that will consolidate […]
