Two consumer electronics seem to have had a huge uptake during covid-19 lockdowns: cameras and headsets. This time I have a look at a more affordable (but not necessarily cheap) gaming headset that by all means is also a good choice for online meetings: the HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Wireless Gaming Headset.

D-Link AX3000 WiFi 6 PCIe Adapter review
Posted on 19-Jan-2021 11:47 Reviews, Wi-Fi, by M Freitas
Desktop computers are generally used in a fixed location - size and weight, the need of external keyboard, mouse and monitor(s) all decide where you can have those machines in your office or home. But sometimes access to an ethernet port throws your best layout plans in disarray and you might end up having to accept it will live in a less than optimal location.How can you add these to a wireless network?

Huawei FreeBuds Pro review
Posted on 8-Dec-2020 09:53 Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by Stu
I have been fortunate to receive a pair of the new Huawei FreeBuds Pro earbuds. My normal travel, sitting at a computer, or just not wanting to hear what's going on in the house headphones have been Bose QC35II, for some time so it was good to have a new device for comparison.
MAD CATZ R.A.T 8+ ADV mouse review
Posted on 30-Nov-2020 17:27 Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas
Gaming is a serious business and there are plenty of options out there for input devices - all sorts of keyboard, mouse and controller devices. What makes the MAD CATZ R.A.T 8+ ADV optical gaming mouse (R.A.T 8+ ADV from now on) so special in this context is the amount of customisation you can achieve with this device.

Google Nest WiFi review
Posted on 19-Oct-2020 14:59 Reviews, Broadband, by M Freitas
The avalanche of new smartphones, tablets, laptops and assorted "smart devices" (including but not limited to TVs, speakers, lights, fridge, coffee machine, heat pump, blinds, washing machines and the list can go on and on) in our homes require, pretty much all of them, Internet access. This is done mostly through wireless connections - after all who wants to spend time with ugly cables running around the house, not enough ports and poor management?
