LenovoEMC PX2-300d with Milestone Arcus NVR Review

LenovoEMC PX2-300d with Milestone Arcus NVR Review

With the latest deliverable in NAS technology we've got the LenovoEMC PX2-300d with Milestone Arcus Network Video Recorder software embedded, complete with hardware you might recognize as a rather close relative of the Iomega PX2-300d in both looks and function - to a point. This is because both PX2-300d units are essentially made of the same basics on the outside, working now with the company's upgraded brand name (LenovoEMC) and taking on the mantel of big-power small-footprint NAS for SMB. Here we've also got the very first NVR (network video recorder) to feature Milestone Arcus; video management software that makes the whole process as quick and easy as possible.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Review

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Review

With the mid-sized tablet in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 series you're getting the only device on the market to go to war with the similarly-sized Galaxy Note. For Samsung it would appear easy to create so many device sizes that there's got to be one you're fond of, but here with the Galaxy Tab 3 generation of devices, it becomes so thick in the industry that the company redefines what it means to cannibalize one's own sales. That said, pretend the rest of the Samsung smart device universe doesn't exist and you've got a solid competitor for the 8-inch (or thereabouts) tablet market.

Zeiss Cinemizer Review

Zeiss Cinemizer Review

Zeiss is a name best known for its camera lenses, but the company also has entertainment in mind with the Cinemizer OLED wearable display. A chunk set of oversized video glasses, where Google's Glass takes the approach of augmenting the real world with digital tidbits, the Cinemizer blocks out the real world and allows you to replace it with 2D/3D video and motion-tracking games. Is all that worth the $750 price tag, however? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Review

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Review

Each new release of the Samsung Galaxy Tab proves the company's willingness to stick with the brand name - and power. Samsung has the power to release a new wave of tablets each year without specific specification boosts bit-by-bit. Keep that in mind when you have a peek at this machine's top-to-bottom, especially when it comes to the final product.

Sennheiser MOMENTUM Black headphones Review

Sennheiser MOMENTUM Black headphones Review

Earlier this year we got our first look at Sennheiser's MOMENTUM at CES, a lovely stark looking set of headphones made of metal and leather. Here in the summer of this year we've had our look and listen to the set, and right at the dawn of the multi-colored fashionable expansion to this headphone lineup - those are also on-ear while these MOMENTUM phones are over-ear. These are the black, and these are the ones you'll see in wild right this minute.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S Review

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S Review

Being touted as a "mini ultrabook" the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S is the latest and greatest to grace the IdeaPad lineup with full-fledged Windows 8 on board. Everything about the Yoga 11 from last year is still present, only we've received a huge upgrade to an Intel Core 15 processor (no ARM Tegra 3 here) and dropped Win RT for the full experience. The device is still as portable and impressive as ever, so read on for the rest of our thoughts.

T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z Review

T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z Review

Sony's Xperia Z has been a sleeper agent of sorts: launched to great fanfare at CES in January, overshadowed by the Galaxy S 4 and HTC One at launch, and yet grabbing upgrade sales from under Samsung's nose in Europe. Not bad for a company once written off in smartphones, and now Sony is hoping to repeat that success in the US, with a launch on T-Mobile USA. Does the waterproof Xperia Z do enough to distract from the heated US mobile market? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Google Play Edition: Galaxy S 4 and HTC One Review

Google Play Edition: Galaxy S 4 and HTC One Review

They're the phones the most vocal minority demanded, pure Android on familiar Samsung and HTC hardware. They're also the phones the manufacturers refused to consider; HTC Sense and Samsung TouchWiz aren't merely window-dressing but core elements of the overall user-experience, so the argument went, and the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 wouldn't be the same without them. Now, then, with the Google Play Edition versions of both, we have the chance to see just how much that's true.

BlackBerry Q5 Review

BlackBerry Q5 Review

BlackBerry needs a new smartphone for the mass market, and the BlackBerry Q5 is its attempt to deliver. Cheaper than the Q10, though offering another sturdy QWERTY keyboard for text-addicts, the Q5 pares back the specifications (and, it has to be said, the design) to boost the BlackBerry 10 line-up by 50-percent. Is it third time lucky for the plucky Canadian company, or three strikes and you're out? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Nokia Lumia 521 Review

Nokia Lumia 521 Review

If you thought the Nokia Lumia 520 was good, boy are you going to have a great time with the Nokia Lumia 521. Essentially the same device as you'll be getting internationally, this T-Mobile iteration of the entry-level Windows Phone 8 device brings the same package (with slightly different radio connections and a few extra apps) to the USA, here with the same bright white back cover as we saw across the sea (one of three, as it were).
