Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Review

Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Review

Lenovo has been pushing out some interesting devices, and its new YOGA Tablet 2 is one of the biggest stands outs among them. How so? For starters, you can hang it on the kitchen wall when you're trying to follow a recipe. The hinge is rounded, doubling as a grip when holding the tablet in portrait orientation. This same hinge allows the "display" to be adjusted in the same smooth increments as a laptop when attached to the accompanying keyboard. Do these features round out an already excellent tablet, however, or are they merely gimmicks? Read our full review to find out!

LG G Watch R Review: best in class

LG G Watch R Review: best in class

With the LG G Watch R here at the start of the year 2015, we've got very little competition in smartwatches. There are several Android Wear watches made by top-tier brands and a few smart watches made by brands we've not ended up sticking with for long. But for now, it's a war with hardware. LG G Watch R's body is unique - not as universally appealing as the stark, cut-back body of the Motorola Moto 360, and not as heavy-hitting as the Samsung Gear S. Instead we've got LG doing what LG does best - making a device that stands out amongst its peers and sits comfortably on your person.

Das Keyboard 4C Review

Das Keyboard 4C Review

This is the newest in a line of high-end mechanical keyboard from Das Keyboard, the Das Keyboard 4C. This unit works with a tenkeyless design - which basically means that it drops the number pad found on many keyboards in favor of a slightly more sleek piece of equipment. In this keyboard we have what might be the best multi-purpose piece of equipment ever made by Das Keyboard, made for general business use as well as high-powered gaming. 87 keys in the USA and 88 keys in Europe - that's all you'll need to roll and press.

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell Review

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell Review

If you're a fan of the Saints Row game series, Gat out of Hell is going to feel a lot like coming home. If you've just played Saints Row IV this past weekend - while it was free on Steam - you're going to feel like you're playing the next chapter in the same game. That's what Gat out of Hell is, after all - not a brand new title, but the second part of a saga started back when Earth was invaded by Zinyak in the year 2013. Now it's time to turn those computer-generated superpowers in on themselves and head down to Satan's pits, a place where instead of digital nonsense, you'll be working with good ol' analog killing goodness: blood, lava, and heavenly (or hellbound) magic.

EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 SuperSC Review with Benchmarks

EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 SuperSC Review with Benchmarks

This week NVIDIA brings heat with the GTX 960 graphics card family. The unit we're having a peek at today is an EVGA GeForce GTX 960 SuperSC, working with clock speeds of 1279MHz Base and 1342MHz Boost, a brand new set of cooling features with ACX 2.0+ Cooling, and the ability to output video to 5 displays at once. This isn't a top tier card, it's meant to attack the middle - extraordinary processing power for a rather inexpensive price. That's the key to hitting the graphics card market from all angles.

VSN Mobil V.360 Camera Review

VSN Mobil V.360 Camera Review

The V.360 camera presents a fairly remarkable media-capturing proposition: the ability to capture panoramic (360-degree) videos or photographs with one tap. No stitching, no multiple-shot photography necessary. This system uses a mirror, instead, as well as a 4K/16 megapixel image sensor. You're using a fixed f/3.0 aperture here and you've got the ability to capture up to 6480 x 1080 HD video at 30FPS or up to 7-megapixel photos (that's 6480 x 1080 as well). What we're doing in this initial review is checking image and video quality - we'll be getting more hardcore in the near future.

Samsung SSD T1 review; a pocketable powerhouse

Samsung SSD T1 review; a pocketable powerhouse

Hard drives are standard fare for any desktop user, but spinning mechanical drives are quickly ceding ground to SSD. For many reasons (better life, performance, and smaller sizing among them), we are looking to SSD as the future of file storage. At CES, Samsung caused quite a ruckus, with many people looking toward their new SSD T1 external hard drive for reason to be excited. An SSD is always welcome news, and the T1 is surprisingly small. Is it still powerful, though? We put it to the test.

Cree Connected LED Bulb Review – A promiscuous light

Cree Connected LED Bulb Review – A promiscuous light

If the smart home is to catch on, then its constituent pieces have to start playing together nicely. Cree has been pushing the LED bulb envelope - particularly on price - for some time, and now it's the turn of the Connected LED Bulb. Not long ago, fifteen dollars for a wireless light bulb was unthinkable; Cree promises not only that, but cross-platform support for home automation hubs compatible with ZigBee. While it's Home Depot favorite Wink that gets the mention on the Cree box, I was also keen to see how friendly the bulbs would be with smart lighting stalwart Philips hue, not to mention the increasingly popular SmartThings.

ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 23 with ThinkCentre M83 PC Review

ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 23 with ThinkCentre M83 PC Review

One of the biggest criticisms of all-in-one PCs is the inability to upgrade hardware if necessary. Lenovo has addressed that issue with its ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 23, an all-in-one monitor with an open slot in the back in which users can slide certain slim Lenovo PCs. Connectors built into the monitor connect to the PC, which can then be accessed through "wings" on the back of the monitor that expose its various ports. Likewise, a couple of USB ports are offered on the front of the monitor for ease of access, ultimately providing a typical AiO experience. Sound interesting? Read our full SlashGear review to find out!

ResMed S+ Sleep Monitor Review – Nightstand Ninja

ResMed S+ Sleep Monitor Review – Nightstand Ninja

I'm obsessed with sleep. Of all the metrics that make up the quantified self, it's probably the one which most intrigues me, not to mention most confuses me. Until now, though, it's also been one of the toughest to accurately measure: wearable monitors wrapped around your wrist can themselves disturb your patterns. So, while ResMed's S+ observing you from your nightstand and doing entirely contactless sleep tracking might seem creepy or far-fetched at first, the potential usefulness could well exceed any weirdness about being watched. I donned my most fetching nightcap to test it out.
