Razer Kishi Review : The best mobile gaming controller yet

Razer Kishi Review : The best mobile gaming controller yet

Razer makes solid gaming hardware. They've made a lot of gaming-centric devices over the past two decades, and I've not always been a member of Razer's target audience. With the Razer Kishi, I find myself excited by a smartphone accessory for the first time in what feels like forever. Razer Kishi is a gaming controller that connects to Android devices via USB-C and folds up to a compact size when not in use. This is about more than gaming - it's about the future.

Google Pixel Buds review (2020): No cord but caveats

Google Pixel Buds review (2020): No cord but caveats

It's been a long time, in tech industry terms, since Google announced its second-generation Pixel Buds, and it's fair to say that the truly wireless earbud category has moved on considerably in the meantime. In all honesty, I expected to be blown away by Google's promised sound quality, comfort, and features for the Pixel Buds' $179 price tag. So at the end of the day, are they worth your hard-earned money? Let's find out.

Phenom by Peopoly 3D printer Review: Massive and delicate

Phenom by Peopoly 3D printer Review: Massive and delicate

The Phenom by Peopoly is a $2k MSLA (LCD+LED) light-cured resin 3D printer with a big orange panel door. This device prints 3D objects with liquid resin, activated with lights - it pulls the print up from the goo, rather than printing the print from the bottom to the top with a melted line of material. This printer has been two things to me thus far: The easiest experience I've had with a 3D printer, and the deliverer of the most detailed final print quality I've yet seen in a personal 3D Printer (at 72 um).

Braven BRV-XXL/2 Review: Your beefy bass buddy

Braven BRV-XXL/2 Review: Your beefy bass buddy

Bluetooth speakers so vast they demand their own carry handle may trade portability for punch, but when social distancing says you can't go further than the garden you might as well drag some music out there with you. Braven's BRV-XXL/2 is one such example of high-volume company for the COVID-19 pandemic, and it'll even be your drinking buddy too.

Sony WF-SP800N Review: ANC earbuds fitter for fitness

Sony WF-SP800N Review: ANC earbuds fitter for fitness

Sony shook things up last year when it launched its first set of true wireless active noise-cancelling earbuds, and now the new WF-SP800N are here to pick up that torch. With waterproofing and a lower price tag, they don't replace the WF-1000XM3 but slot in underneath them. Still, there are some very good reasons why the SP800N might be the best fit for you.

Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro Review: Your fingers will thank you

Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro Review: Your fingers will thank you

It’s safe to say that I’ve waited 10 years for a proper iPad keyboard accessory from Apple. Was the wait for the Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro worth it? Absolutely. It's probably better to be late to the game but have a solid product, than to deliver something that’s mediocre - I’m looking at you, Folio Keyboard - though I can't help but wish it hadn't quite taken a whole decade to arrive.

Brydge Pro+ Review: The best iPad Pro keyboard doesn’t have an Apple logo

Brydge Pro+ Review: The best iPad Pro keyboard doesn’t have an Apple logo

Happy harmony is the new iPad Pro and Brydge's Pro+ keyboard, arguably the purest and best accessory out there for Apple's laptop-replacing tablet. If you want the simplest form of a keyboard attachment for the iPad Pro, I recommend skipping the review and heading straight to Apple.com to purchase the Magic Keyboard. If, however, you’re looking for the best typing experience available that happens to have an integrated trackpad and looks damn sleek, then keep reading my review of the Brydge Pro+. I promise it’ll be worth your time.

OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger Review: Speed and sound

OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger Review: Speed and sound

The OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger was advertised as allowing you to charge a OnePlus 8 Pro smartphone from 0% to 50% in 29 minutes. This device has a single LED indicator light, a built-in fan, a vent, and a rubber bumper, as well as Qi/EPP cross compatibility (see disclaimer below). It also costs nearly $70 USD. Could such a charger be worth that kind of cash?

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Review

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Review

Samsung's Galaxy Buds+ may have had to share stage-time with the Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Z Flip at Unpacked 2019, but that's not to say the updated wireless earbuds weren't worth attention. Follow-up to last year's well-received Galaxy Buds, the new earbuds promise a boost in audio quality, usability, and battery life, though with an increase in price along the way.

Honda HRR Gas Lawn Mower Review: Winter wishes for summer reliability

Honda HRR Gas Lawn Mower Review: Winter wishes for summer reliability

I began writing this review when I started to use a Honda HRR push mower a couple of seasons ago. When this review process began, I assumed it'd be like any other. I was used to reviewing things like smartphones and computers - devices that aren't expected to last more than a few years for the average person. But this was to be no average review - this review became about more than just the one machine.

Autonomous SmartDesk Home Office Review: Standing desk on the cheap?

Autonomous SmartDesk Home Office Review: Standing desk on the cheap?

Over the past few weeks I've been using the Autonomous SmartDesk Hybrid-Edition while I work. This is a standing desk, but can also be used as a sitting desk. It has a control panel on its right side to adjust the heights at which it's able to rest. OF NOTE: This desk was originally called "Hybrid Edition" but is now called "Home Office" - you'll find that reflected on their listing site.

Rocketbook Beacons Review: a unique take on collaboration and planning

Rocketbook Beacons Review: a unique take on collaboration and planning

As a tech-oriented publication, it's only natural that the majority of the products, news, and trends we cover revolve around the latest gadgets and apps that proliferate in the modern world. Some people, however, have found not only some utility but even enjoyment in analog tools and workflows, especially the act of writing on paper or on boards. Rocketbook tries to appeal to this class of people with an important offer. Keep writing down your notes, ideas, diagrams, and mind maps but with the added conveniences of the cloud. The new Rocketbook Beacons are taking that promise and making it available on a larger scale, literally.
