Philips hue LightStrips and Bloom Review

Philips hue LightStrips and Bloom Review

Philips has been making multi-colored lighting for some time, but even so the hue system came as a surprise last year. ZigBee-enabled wireless LED bulbs, remotely controlled by an open mobile app, and promising the sort of smart home functionality that would once have demanded many thousands for installation, hue quickly sold out in stores and built a loyal following of users and developers tapping into the API. Now, for 2013, there's the "Friends of hue" range, a new line of companion products that hook into hue ecosystem. LivingColors Bloom is a compact, portable lamp, while the LightStrip is a long, adhesive-backed strip of LEDs; read on for our full review.

Google Chromecast Review

Google Chromecast Review

Google Chromecast was a surprise addition to the company's range of own-brand hardware, a $35 streaming stick that, wounds licked after the Google TV and Nexus Q fiascos, promises a cheap and simple way to get browser and streaming content on your big-screen TV.

Does it deserve the hype, however? Read on for the full SlashGear 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.

LG ET83 Touch 10 LED Monitor Review

The 23-inch Class 10 point touch LED IPS monitor from LG going by code-name 23ET83V-W is more than just a mouthful in name: it's a rather fine piece of equipment made for today's Windows 8-friendly computing universe.

Instead of turning this review out with ultra-speed, it became more of everyday experience: this is a monitor I dread having to send back.

Mophie Juice Pack for HTC One Review

The nightly recharge is a fact of life with most modern smartphones, and the HTC One is no different, but what if you could double your runtime and protect your expensive new toy in the process? That's what Mophie promises from the Juice Pack for the HTC One, a combination external battery and hard case that, when wrapped around your phone, should let even the most ambitious power-user escape the tyranny of the charger. All that flexibility comes at a price, however: $99.95 and a considerably larger device in your pocket. Is the Mophie Juice Pack worth the compromise? Read on for our full review.
