Thinksound On1 Monitor Series Headphones Review

Thinksound On1 Monitor Series Headphones Review

Thinksound has launched its first pair of "big" headphones, the wood-centric On1 supra-aural monitors with 40mm drivers and detachable audio cables. The company has enjoyed widespread success with its various earbuds, and as such the On1 have both company history and buyer expectations to live up to. This product has been a long time coming, and is now available from Thinksound for $299.99 USD. We recently got our hands on a pair of these cans, and we've put them through the acoustical wringer to see if they hold up for those particular about their music. Read our full SlashGear review to see how they fared.

Sony VAIO Duo 13 Review

Sony VAIO Duo 13 Review

The popularity of tablets have posed a solid threat to the PC industry, and in response many 2-in-1 so-called "hybrid" laptops have popped up in increasing numbers that are able to function as both -- as a laptop when some serious work needs to be done, and as a tablet for activities best suited to a hands-on approach: mobile games, artwork, and Web browsing, among others. The Sony VAIO Duo 13 is one such hybrid featuring a collapsible design that toggles the machine between a slate and a laptop without effort, but does it provide the best of both worlds? Read our full SlashGear review to find out.

iPad Air Review

iPad Air Review

Had the iPad lost its way? Not as a range, certainly; over the last twelve months, the iPad mini has been the darling of the tablet scene, coupling affordability with convenience and build quality. The full-sized, 9.7-inch iPad has arguably been sidelined since its smaller sibling's arrival, but no more as of the iPad Air. Now with a design that echoes the wow-factor of the original iPad, and the performance to match, the iPad Air narrows the gap between it and the iPad mini, paring away the compromises as it goes. The best tablet Apple has made? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

HP Chromebook 11 Review

HP Chromebook 11 Review

Following the Acer C720, which we recently reviewed, HP has brought its own new Chrome OS-harboring laptop to the market, the Chromebook 11. Unlike some of the other Chromebooks that are available, HP has elected to aim its focus on the design aspect of its offering, bringing to market a small laptop that in some ways resembles an older MacBook, adding a splash of color and the ability to charge from a standard smartphone charger into the mix. With this design-centric focus comes a slightly higher price tag than competing Chromebooks, being priced at $279 USD while the new Acer C720 is priced at $249. Read on for our full SlashGear review to see whether the Chromebook meets its premium pricing.

Acer Chromebook C720 Review

Google's segment of portable computers loaded with Chrome OS is growing, and among recently announced new models is Acer's latest offering -- the Acer C720, an inexpensive laptop that utilizes Intel Haswell. Like other Chromebooks, the C720 is aimed at those who need a computer for school, for working on the go, or for fun without shelling out hundreds more for unneeded hardware. On the grand scale, it is the C720's $249 price point that makes it appealing, and on the smaller scale, it is this notebook's excellent performance that makes it stand out among its peers.

HP ENVY Rove 20 Review

HP ENVY Rove 20 Review

Is it a tablet, or an All-in-One PC, or some hybrid of the two? The HP ENVY Rove 20 walks the line in-between, a 20-inch desktop that, thanks to an onboard battery, can make the trip from home office, to kitchen, to bedroom, and back without interrupting what you're working on or watching. Windows 8 is all about touch and convergence, and the ENVY Rove 20 delivers on both, but is it best of both worlds or just a compromise? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

HP Slate 7 Review

HP Slate 7 Review

HP’s first go-around with a tablet didn’t actually go so well. The webOS-based TouchPad didn’t last long and was quickly discontinued. However, the company is back with another slate, only this time it’s running the more widely-adopted Android operating system, and it seems as though HP wants to give tablets another whack with its first-ever Android tablet, the Slate 7. We took a peek at it during CES 2013 back in January, and it’s a metal-infested 7-incher that looks to take on Google’s Nexus 7 with a relatively stock user interface in a clean and simple package. Let’s see how it fares.

Verizon BlackBerry Q10 Review

BlackBerry’s rolling the dice this year, with a complete overhaul of their operating system and releasing all new devices. We’ve taken a look at both the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 in full, with the latter being a 2013 version of a classic BlackBerry device that we’ve grown to know. All four major carriers have signed on to offer the Q10, and we’ve decided to take a look at Verizon’s variant to see what the device offers on Big Red. While we’ve reviewed the Q10 before, this’ll be the first time we’ve taken a look at the handset on a US carrier, so let’s see what the QWERTY-equipped device has to offer for us Americans.

HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook Review

HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook Review

HP has officially entered into the Chromebook market with their new $329 Pavilion 14 Chromebook. As a laptop, it doesn’t deviate too far from HP standards, and it still sports the same curves and style that you’d expect out of a laptop from the company. Plus, despite being a Chromebook, it feels more like a traditional Windows laptop with it’s fairly spacious keyboard and trackpad, along with the 14-inch display. However, looks aren’t everything, and it’s the internal hardware and performance that can make or break a notebook. Is the Pavilion 14 worthy of a spot on your college laptop shortlist for the upcoming school year? Let’s find out.
