Batman v Superman Review: A Triumph

Batman v Superman Review: A Triumph

I don't believe in the conspiracy theories that say critics have a vendetta against DC Comics and/or Zack Snyder. I also don't believe that a movie with both Batman and Superman in it needs any help to succeed in the box office. That's not what we're here for. What I'm here for is to explain what you're in for when you eventually see this film. I'm here to suggest that, while this film is not good in the same way The Dark Knight was good, it's a fantastic base for the future of the DC Comics film universe.

Razer BlackWidow X line to disrupt gaming keyboard pricing with simplicity

Razer BlackWidow X line to disrupt gaming keyboard pricing with simplicity

Razer gaming keyboards aren't cheap - they're made to last, and they're not made to tend to the non-gamer crowd. With the new Razer BlackWidow X line of keyboards, the company is cutting down on price - not on production value, mind you, on price. The keyboards will be the same high-quality hardware you're used to with Razer, only now they'll be stripped of (almost) all of their bells and whistles.

2016 Lexus RX 350 FWD Review

2016 Lexus RX 350 FWD Review

It's easy to coast when you're in first place, but in the fiercely contested SUV segment it's also a recipe for disaster. Lexus has been sitting pretty at the top of the luxury SUV pile for years now - a class of car the Japanese marque is keen to remind you that it invented, no less - and so expectations for the 2016 RX are understandably high. Anything less than best-foot-forward isn't an option.

Philips 276E Review – Perfect colors at a near-perfect price

Philips 276E Review – Perfect colors at a near-perfect price

Modern LCD monitors can look really beautiful. You might think that yours is perfect, with all the right colors showing just as brightly as any other. However, it only takes one glance at a better panel for you to realize that you've actually been staring at muted, washed-out colors. Well Philips believes that they have the solution for making the perfect monitor, in the form of quantum dots.

2016 Infiniti QX60 First Drive

2016 Infiniti QX60 First Drive

Much of Infiniti's recent success has come from its crossover line-up, where it presents three distinctly different choices for luxury-seeking families. Sandwiched between the entry-level QX50 and the high performance QX70 sits the 2016 Infiniti QX60, the logically-numbered full-size hauler that combines respectable room and a comprehensive level of advanced safety, all wrapped in a premium package. Although no major changes have been made for the current model year, the QX60 has been gently refreshed to keep it current with its line-up mates and continue its task of drawing fresh blood to showrooms.

Panono Review : Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera in the house

Panono Review : Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera in the house

This is the Panono, a camera which exists in a spherical configuration, one that you're able to toss into the air to capture unique images. Back in 2011 when we first discovered this piece of technology, it was just a student project. Fast forward to now, the year 2016, and we're getting to experience the magic in final form - ready for consumers - for the first time. Is this the way of the future? Or was this an awesome idea formed before its time, executed too late to make a giant impact in its natural home market - virtual reality?

2017 Cadillac XT5 First Drive

2017 Cadillac XT5 First Drive

Regime change doesn't have to be bloody. Sometimes, the weight of new ideas alone is sufficient to push out the lingering elements of old-school thinking, creating a void where innovation floods in to fill the vacuum with a renewed sense of purpose. The 2017 Cadillac XT5 crossover represents the latest, and perhaps capstone chapter in the automaker's near-total makeover from luxury also-ran to legitimate contender for high end family dollars - and the only shots fired are in the direction of Tokyo, where the Lexus RX 350 finds itself facing its toughest challenger in over a decade.

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Review

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Review

Lust. That's what Samsung was counting on with the Galaxy S6 edge: enough people seeing its curvaceous AMOLED screen and uncontrollably coughing up the premium over its flat-fronted sibling. Problem was, though the hardware was clever, the software made little use of it, and so with the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge arriving even sleeker and even swifter, we have to ask: has the functionality finally caught up to the flexibility?

2016 GMC Canyon Diesel Review

2016 GMC Canyon Diesel Review

There's nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has finally come, and in the world of light pickups that particularly prescient thought-form has manifested as turbodiesel power. After decades of denying diesel to anyone outside the heavy-duty truck world, both American and Japanese brands are starting to offer turbodiesel engines across a much wider range of pickup choices.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Review

Samsung Galaxy S7 Review

You could forgive Samsung for harboring a little resentment toward Android phone buyers. After all, it gave us the Galaxy S6 - and in the process answered the most vocal and persistent criticisms of build quality and style, among other things - only to see sales fail to live up to expectations. Turns out, we're a fickle bunch, smartphone buyers, and so the Galaxy S7 arrives with courage screwed to the sticking place but no guarantees. Just one big question: is this the phone to buy if you're an Android fan?

Sugru Review for LEGO customization

Sugru Review for LEGO customization

Sugru is a strange sort of self-hardening glue/clay that comes in a variety of colors and plays very, very well with LEGO bricks. It's made for all sorts of different situations, like fitting around my MacBook power cord to add some protection to the places where it normally feels the most wear and tear. When we were provided a few packs of Sugru to review for SlashGear, we didn't just want to stay within the bounds of the given example uses of the product. We wanted to use the unique qualities of Sugru to step our LEGO game up to the next level.
