Dead Rising 3 Review

Dead Rising 3 Review

With the release of the third installment of the Dead Rising series we were told we'd see a whole new door opened for not only the series, but the zombie-crunching genre as well. Seeing the game in all the biggest Xbox One advertisements was no small deterrent to the idea that this would be one of the games to watch with the launch of the console, and once we got down to business, it was almost instantly proven. Dead Rising 3 is easily one of the finest games on the Xbox One today.

Jawbone ERA Review (2014)

Jawbone ERA Review (2014)

Time was, in Bluetooth headsets, you generally had to choose between style and performance. Some looked great but suffered poor battery life and mediocre audio quality; at the other extreme, you could have lengthy runtimes and excellent audio, but only if you didn't mind looking like you'd just walked out of a call center. Jawbone wants to change all that with the 2014 ERA, a slimmed-down, spec'd-up update of its flagship Bluetooth headset, but can it really bridge both successfully? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition Review

Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition Review

The Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition is undoubtedly the most unique form factor in Google's collection of Nexus and Nexus-like devices today. What we've gotten out of it so far is just that - if you're looking for a replacement for a device you've got in your pocket already, something that's just an upgrade from a large smartphone you've had in the past, this isn't it. Instead you've got a device that's massively solid and feels like a whole new generation in in-between greatness.

Lumen TL800 Bluetooth Bulb Review

Lumen TL800 Bluetooth Bulb Review

Colorful remote-control lighting isn't the preserve of the multi-million dollar mansion any more, and Tabu wants to democratize smart home bulbs even further with the Lumen TL800. It's not the first smartphone-controlled LED bulb, but unlike Philips' hue, however, Tabu has turned to something far more prevalent in today's phones and tablets to make the connection: Bluetooth 4.0. Does that make Lumen the remote bulb for the mass market? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Lenovo T440s Review

Lenovo T440s Review

Among Lenovo's newest offerings this year is another release in the T-Series lineup, the T440s. With this ultrabook comes all the trimmings you'd expect to see: Windows 8 Pro, a touchscreen display, Intel Haswell under the hood, and the ever-present TrackPoint nestled in the keyboard. The T440s stands out as a larger offering when compared to the ThinkPad X240 we reviewed last month, but in many ways they are the same, targeting the same general type of user but bringing its own flair to the table. Read our full review to find out what the Lenovo T440s offers those in the market for a ThinkPad ultrabook.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga Review

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga Review

Lenovo has popped up with a handful of new products recently, among them being the ThinkPad Yoga, a flexible hybrid laptop with a touchscreen panel that can fold all the way back into a tablet-like mode. This follows the ThinkPad X240 we reviewed last month, and rather than sporting the X240's extremely long battery life and somewhat thick body, Lenovo elected to give the ThinkPad Yoga a more conservative, universal appeal -- namely, a thin, flat profile and a slightly less no-nonsense design, something accompanied by a high-end 12.5-inch FHD touchscreen display. Read on for our full SlashGear review to how the ThinkPad Yoga fared.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Review

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Review

Is it a laptop, a tablet, or something else entirely? Lenovo's Yoga 2 Pro is an interesting mix of form factors, hardware, and operating system, that much we know. The screen, which folds a full 360-degrees around the back of the device, is the attention grabber, but is there more to it than that? We put the Yoga 2 through its paces to find out.

Pure Jongo S3 and Jongo T2 Review

Pure Jongo S3 and Jongo T2 Review

Think multi-room audio and your first thought is probably Sonos, but Pure is hoping to change all that. Initially started to demonstrate the wireless chips of parent company Imagination Technologies, Pure has since taken on a life of its own, not only with a line of speakers but a Spotify rivaling on-demand media service too. Still, not for nothing is Sonos known for spanning the worlds of audiophiles, streaming geeks, and mainstream users, so can Pure compete across all three? We've had the Pure Jongo S3, a Sonos PLAY:1 alternative, and the even more affordable Jongo T2 on the SlashGear test bench; read on for our full review.

Xbox One Review

Xbox One Review

Microsoft is certain the Xbox One is their key to taking over living room entertainment in its entirety. Experiencing the Xbox One for the first time will almost certainly remind users of their first time working with Windows 8 - there's a lot of tiles to be tapped, and they're not always the easiest to traverse. In the Xbox One is Microsoft's extended Windows experience, coming closer to the do-everything ecosystem the brand has been cultivating over the past several years.

Lexus LS 460 F SPORT Review

Lexus LS 460 F SPORT Review

You may not have heard of the Lexus F SPORT brand, but the Japanese luxury car company thinks models like the LS 460 F SPORT will change that. Taking every discrete executive's favorite sleeper-sedan and throwing some LFA-inspired sports magic at it, the LS 460 F SPORT may not give those in Mercedes-Benz's AMG division or their counterparts at BMW's M Sport labs sleepless nights quite yet, but it's still one of the biggest shake-ups to the Lexus brand since it expanded into SUVs. That, lest we forget, was a decision that did Lexus proud, so it would perhaps be a foolish car fan that dismissed this niche curio as nothing more than a gimmick. SlashGear slipped behind the wheel to find out more; read on for the full review.
