OPPO Reno 10x review

We are talking about the latest OPPO smartphone, the next in a series of devices the company have been creating that pushes the boundaries of photography and performance.

Sony HT-X8500 soundbar review
Posted on 8-Jul-2019 16:48 Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

Nothing can be more disappointing to home entertainment users than bad sound. With few exceptions (mostly on the high-end and cost side) most TV sets have very poor sound when compared to their screen quality (the Sony A1 TVs with their on-screen speakers is one of the top TVs in this respect). So I was quite happy to try the new Sony HT-X8500 soundbar with my poor sound quality TV.

Harman Kardon Allure Portable review
Posted on 17-May-2019 11:59 Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

Voice-activated digital assistant speakers are a more common sight around the house - and a growing market every day. Since my visite to Microsoft's house of the future in Seattle, back in the mid-2000s, I imagined living in a fully digital house, one that you control with your voice and managed through your smart devices.

Ring Stick Up Cam Battery review
Posted on 8-May-2019 11:08 Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

Having installed quite a few Ring devices around the house (including the Floodlight Cam and the Spotlight Cam outside), I was interested in seeing what the new Ring Stick Up Cam offered.

Epson ET-2710 review
Posted on 12-Apr-2019 17:25 Reviews, Consumer Electronics

For the last few years we have used a laser printer at home. Over those years I have tested a few inkjet printers but couldn't really say I was ever happy enough with results to change devices. I was also unhappy with photo printing results on older printers. This changed when I tried the Epson ET-2710.

Huawei P30 Pro review
Posted on 10-Apr-2019 15:17 Reviews, Android, by M Freitas

In just a couple of days the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro series will be available in New Zealand. There is a great number of special deals to be had from telcos and retail stores - and if you are in the market for the best camera performance and phone design you shouldn't ignore these devices.

Anki Vector review
Posted on 21-Mar-2019 19:57 Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

The Sony WH-1000XM3 are an excellent pair of noise cancelling headphones featuring great sound quality.

Yubikey 5 review
Posted on 18-Feb-2019 15:34 Reviews, Security, by M Freitas

Managing ones access to services in general (online and offline) is something everyone does in their lives but not many consider the implications around chosing weak passwords, the problems of reusing passwords, the lack of security by design in some services and so on. Yubikey devices (and second factor authentication in general) can enhance security online, if used right.

Posted on 11-Feb-2019 19:58 Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

The BenQ EL2870U is a good mid-sized entertainment-oriented monitor.

BenQ EX3501R review
Posted on 10-Jan-2019 17:33 Reviews, Consumer Electronics

The BenQ EX3501R provides you with enough desktop space to comfortably have side-by-side Windows applications that in effect works as if you a couple of smaller monitors working together.

Crucial P1 CT1000P1SSD8 SSD review
Posted on 20-Dec-2018 11:01 Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

A few years back the easiest way to improve performance on a personal computer would be to add more RAM. SSD solutions are now the best way to achieve better performance, and cost is no longer a barrier.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review
Posted on 1-Nov-2018 17:37 Reviews, Android, by M Freitas

Just months after Huawei released the P20 series and we have a new top of the line smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer. And it's not only a top of the line in terms of design, features and materials but it again incorporates Leica technology into its camera, now with a three lens set, extending its functionality and quality.

Posted on 25-Oct-2018 17:24 Reviews, Android, by M Freitas

OPPO has again worked hard to put out a smartphone that looks like it belongs to the top-end side of the market. Its new OPPO Find X is a very interesting piece of technology and engineering.

HPE ProLiant ML110 review
Posted on 27-Sep-2018 13:11 Reviews, Computing

While there is a business case for cloud-based services, there are also cases where a local server is either a requirement or the best solution - including being part of a hybrid cloud design. Your organisation might be looking for a solution that's supported by existing channels, something that doesn't need a hands-on approach. Or it may be that connectivity is at a premium and cloud-based services won't work well for some locations. The Intel Xeon Scalable processor-powered HPE ProLiant ML110 Gen10, paired with ClearOS is a solution for these cases.

D-Link COVR-C1203 review
Posted on 30-Jul-2018 20:35 Reviews, Broadband, by M Freitas

Home networks are increasingly growing more complex. Structured cabling is not really something easy to retrofit without pulling existing walls apart.
