Dell Venue 8 Pro review

Dell Venue 8 Pro review

Not to be confused by the Android tablet with a similar name, the Dell Venue 8 Pro is running Windows. Unlike the difference in operating systems though, there is one similarity to some of those Dell Android tablets, the processor. Dell has the Venue 8 Pro equipped with an Intel processor. Basically, we are looking at an 8-inch tablet running a full Windows installation here, so read on to check out the full SlashGear review.

Samsung GALAXY S 4 Mini Review

Samsung GALAXY S 4 Mini Review

The world of Samsung smartphones runs the gamut from one size to another. Want a phone that doubles as a small tablet? There's a Galaxy for that. Not everyone finds phablet-sized smartphones of adequate size for a tablet, however, and so they opt for a larger dedicated tablet and, conversely, a smaller smartphone to complement it. Others simply want a small easy-to-hold-and-pocket offering. Regardless of your reasons for leaning towards the diminutive end of the spectrum, Samsung aims to have your back, rolling out the svelte GALAXY S 4 Mini -- a miniature version of its popular handset by the same name. How does the smartphone hold up to its larger brethren? Read our full SlashGear review to find out.

Sony SmartWatch 2 Review

Sony SmartWatch 2 Review

There's a smartwatch war going on right now - did you know? With the SmartWatch 2, Sony reminds the world that they've already been in the market for a generation, with months of head start going in an unbroken line of evolutionary products (even if it's just two) that lead to today's wearable. While the Sony SmartWatch 2 was largely overshadowed this year by the Samsung Galaxy Gear and the smartwatch known as Pebble, the mission we've got before us today is deciding if this wearable is up to the task of taking on those other similar wrist-bound computers, both large and small.

Moto G Review

The Moto G is a smartphone the whole tech community has wishing for and waiting on for ages. It's a low-cost smartphone with hardware and software to back up its ability to be a contender in many markets - but more than that, it's also got the backing it needs to succeed.

LG G Flex Review

LG G Flex Review

Every new niche has to start somewhere, and LG says the G Flex is the start of the flexible smartphone revolution. Why should our phones be flat when everything else around us is curved, so the company's theory goes, with ambitious dreams of folding handsets and collapsable tablets in the next decade. Today, though, the G Flex is paving the way: a 6-inch phablet with a premium price-tag and a sexy curve to its profile. Question remains, is this a gimmick or a true taste of tech to come? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus Review

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus Review

In the Samsung ATIV Book series, the company comes to a point in their history with notebooks that they're ready to go to battle with the highest-quality units in the industry. In the ATIV Book 9 Plus with 13.3-inch LED QHD+ (3200 x 1800 pixel) touchscreen display and Intel Core processor under the hood, there's scarcely a Windows 8 laptop on the market that we can recommend against it. Not one constructed of pure aluminum, at least.

Lenovo ThinkPad X240 Review

Lenovo has launched a new addition to its X-Series of laptops, the business-chic X240.

HP ZBook 15 Review

HP ZBook 15 Review

The market is packed full of thin, low-powered, lightweight laptops and tablet hybrids that offer up all the perks that come with primarily playing mobile games and surfing the Web. Some of us require a bit more oomph from our machine's hardware, however, and that is where workstations like the HP ZBook 15 come in. This laptop is on the hefty side, and with it comes a full keyboard with numpad, a 15.6-inch Full HD display, and surprisingly high battery life. Check out our full SlashGear review to find out what else this beast offers.

NETGEAR ReadyNAS RN102 Review

NETGEAR ReadyNAS RN102 Review

Netgear revealed its ambitious network storage plans early this year, rolling out the red carpet for an eventual launch of a handful of ReadyNAS units that would complement the ReadyNAS Duo v2 that we reviewed in 2011. We got our hands on one of these new units, the ReadyNAS RN102, a 2-bay connected device that offers up to 8TB of storage, which places it a step below the similarly-launched RN104. At about the same price of the Duo v2, the RN102 takes things up a notch in the hardware department, but is it ultimately worth the upgrade? Read our full SlashGear review to find out.

Sennheiser G4ME ONE gaming headset Review

Sennheiser G4ME ONE gaming headset Review

With the release of the G4ME ONE gaming headphones alongside the slightly higher-end G4ME ZERO, Sennheiser reminds the public that they're not just satisfied with bringing music to the aviator-inspired ear-blaster market. Here we're concentrating on the G4ME ONE - with extra noise-blocking and memory-foam in the ZERO, you can just assume that the more expensive set is just that much better. Here in the G4ME ONE we've got an exceedingly comfortable experience with just as fine a quality in sound delivery as we heard in the Sennheiser Momentum (in black).
