In both cases, laser projectors can provide the flexibility that some people need in a home entertainment system, and young company VAVA just debuted what could be one of the stronger options in that market. The VAVA Chroma ultra short throw projector packs quite a lot of buzzwords and features, but is it really worth the price it is asking? We picked up the large projector and placed it near our wall to find out.

EcoFlow Delta Pro Power Station Review

Recent weather disasters and natural calamities have made the need for emergency power even more apparent these days. While fuel generators have been the go-to solution for such situations, they are no longer viable options in terms of safety and reliability.

JingPad A1 Linux tablet launched for consumers on Indiegogo

There have been Linux tablets in the market for years if you consider that Android is Linux-based. There have also been attempts to put "proper" Linux flavors on phones and tablets, but most of those have been aimed at developers and tinkerers. Linux mobile devices that are designed specifically for the consumer market are far and few in between, making the JingPad Linux tablet a rather interesting venture, one that seems to have resounded with quite a few backers on Indiegogo.

Smach Z gaming PC handheld becomes another cautionary tale

Smach Z gaming PC handheld becomes another cautionary tale

There is no shortage of gaming handhelds today running a full Windows 10 OS, at least if you know where to look. From the GPD WIN 3 to the AYA Neo to the new ONEXPLAYER, there are now a few choices when it comes to bringing your PC games with you on the go. Back in 2014, however, that idea was revolutionary and a small team tried to make that happen before anyone else did. Of course, the Smach Z went via the crowdfunding route and, while it was successfully funded, it has now become yet another anecdote on how such dreams not only fail but also deprive people of their hard-earned money.

ONEXPLAYER gaming PC handheld comes with a bigger screen

ONEXPLAYER gaming PC handheld comes with a bigger screen

Handheld gaming computers are nothing new and there have been quite a few models from different companies, most of them hailing from China, for almost every generation of Intel processors. It isn't until the 11th-gen Intel "Tiger Lake", however, that the chip maker's graphics technology could truly be considered worthy of gaming on its own. Unsurprisingly, there have also been new attempts at putting that Intel chip into more portable forms, and the ONEXPLAYER is not only the latest but also the biggest in that category.

Bluetti EP500 Pro 5.1kWh Power Station – home power backup on wheels

Bluetti EP500 Pro 5.1kWh Power Station – home power backup on wheels

We have covered our fair share of portable power stations that try to strike a balance between portability and power one way or another. Bluetti's latest gamble, however, is unabashed standing firm on the power side but not without good reason. The Bluetti EP500 and its more power-packed EP500 Pro sibling definitely boast the largest capacity and biggest set of features we've seen on a mobile power station and that's because, despite the wheels that help it move, it's designed to stay at home and be the backup you need when your whole house turns dark.
