Acer Predator Helios 300 review

The Acer Predator Helios 300 is, by all accounts, a budget gaming laptop. With that, there are a couple of blemishes about the device that are too obvious and too important to ignore, and there are some subtle corners cut as well. But, as is expected of many budget gaming laptops, cutbacks and compromises are expected. If you want the best, after all, you have to pay for the best. That said, we are pleasantly impressed with this model’s performance…

iPhone 8 vs Moto Z3: Apple’s got a fight on its hands

iPhone 8 vs Moto Z3 All new smartphones get compared to the iPhones, no matter how different a market they are addressing. The Moto Z3, announced on 2 August, is closest in spirit to the iPhone 8 but is drastically cheaper, at least in the US. But is it a better deal? In this article we compare the iPhone 8 and Moto Z3 for design, features, specs and value for money and help you determine which is the best option…

Focal Sib Evo Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 speaker system review: A convenient, but ineffective substitute for in-ceiling speakers

There are many good things about Focal’s Sib Evo Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 speaker system, which promises to deliver the Dolby Atmos experience at a price that won’t break the bank: Focal squeezes high performances from its satellite speakers and subwoofer, despite their compact cabinets. The satellites can rest on a shelf or be mounted to the wall and pointed in the directions that render them the most effective; and the system is attractive to look at. Where the system ultimately…

Moshi IonBank 3K Review – Tech Advisor

Moshi IonBank 3K Review The IonBank 3K is a reddot design award-winning power bank from Moshi, with a deluxe vegan leather magnetic cover, aluminium panel and built-in flat, tangle-free cables. Classy and ultra-compact, it offers a fast charge to any recent iPhone running low on juice. It’s not often that we’d recommend a 3,200mAh power bank that costs more than £50 – especially one that rules out 86 percent of the smartphone market – but the Moshi is no ordinary power bank. You…

​Moleskine Pen+ Ellipse: Smart note-taking cuts out digital distractions

Image: Moleskine It’s never a good sign when meeting attendees all bring their laptops, and sit with the screens raised protectively in front of them — with enough people in a difficult meeting, it’s like facing an Anglo-Saxon shield wall. Apart from creating a negative atmosphere, bringing a laptop into a meeting is also a barrier to concentration: there’s always the temptation to check your email, surf the web, or even play a bit of Fortnite during the boring bits.…

Anki Vector hands on review

Anki is a company whose products always seem to delight. Overdrive, its push into the racing-set space, was a fun hybrid of Scalextric-style controls and app gaming. While its robot companion Cozmo hit the top of the toy charts, thanks to its charm.  But Cozmo was really just a desk toy, with the emphasis on toy. Despite it being able to do a number of things, most people just played games with it and cooed when it made a noise.…

Eufy RobotVac 11s review: Our favorite budget robot vacuum gets an upgrade

We couldn’t imagine there was much room to improve the Eufy RoboVac 11 when we selected it as our favorite budget robot vacuum. It was one of the simplest, smallest, and most affordable models available. But the RoboVac 11s updates it with an even smaller profile and more powerful cleaning while keeping the price low. The 11s has the same black finish and tempered-glass top as its predecessor, but it’s slightly smaller: It’s been scaled down to 12.8 inches in…

Intel SSD 660p review: Quad Level Cell (QLC/4-bit) NAND makes its debut

Intel’s SSD 660p is a bit of shock to the system. Not only is this NVMe drive the first Quad-Level Cell (QLC/4-bit) SSD on the market, which portends larger-capacity offerings, it’s faster during everyday use, and far cheaper—$200 for 1TB—than even the most affordable TLC offerings. And thanks to some cache trickery, it can sustain speed through a decent-sized write. But while life just became more difficult for vendors working the low end of the NVMe SSD market, purveyors of…

Best smart smoke detector: Reviews and buying advice

The concept is simple: A smoke alarm that tells you there’s a fire nearby is a great, but a smoke alarm that tells you there’s a fire no matter where you are is even better. Smart smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors are one of the most useful categories of smart home gear on the market, mainly because they offer a clear advantage over “dumb” versions of the same product. And if you have a second home or travel frequently,…

iPhone 5S review | TechRadar

The iPhone 5S was Apple’s first smartphone with the Touch ID fingerprint home button and a 64-bit processor when it launched in 2013. It was the most premium, most expensive iPhone you could get your hands on, but now it’s a very different story.  The current crop of Apple smartphones – iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X – couldn’t be further from what the 4-inch iPhone 5S offered up, and while Apple no longer produces the 5S, there is…

Logitech MK520 wireless keyboard & mouse review: A comfy, quiet , bargain-priced bundle

While it’s missing the bells and whistles you’ll find in pricier, more recent keyboards, the Logitech MK520 wireless keyboard and mouse combo nails the basics for a wallet-friendly price. Boasting a palm rest, dedicated media buttons and more than a dozen programmable keys, the MK520’s keys feel smooth and responsive. The bundled mouse comes with plenty of heft and a customizable middle button. Listed at $60 but available on Amazon for half that, the MK520’s aging software and iffy Mac…

Lowe’s Iris smart home system review: An emphasis on security

Four years into its existence, the Iris by Lowe’s smart home system has been dogged by poor reviews and, judging by Lowe’s own comments site, general customer apathy toward the product. But Lowe’s says it has heard the complaints and has completely overhauled the system in the last couple of years, “rebuilding it from the ground up.” Update, August 7, 2018: Lowe’s has added support for Lutron’s Caséta smart lighting products. There are some caveats, however; first, you’ll need a Lutron Caséta…

Hide.me review: A good service with zippy servers

Hide.me in brief: P2P allowed: Yes Business location: Malaysia Number of servers: 150+ Number of country locations: 34 Cost: $60/$120 per year VPN Protocol (default): IKEv2 Data encryption: AES-CBC-256 Data authentication: HMAC-SHA2-256 Handshake encryption: ECP521 Every VPN claims to be the fastest, or one of the fastest, services on the Internet, but often those claims don’t pan out.

The best tablets for 2018: Our top picks

Image: ipopba, Getty Images/iStockphoto For many people, the tablet era began in 2010 with the launch of the original 9.7-inch iPad. But tablet devices have a much longer history than that. For example, I recall seeing Bill Gates show off the first prototype Windows tablet at Comdex in Las Vegas a decade before Steve Jobs took to a San Francisco stage to declare the first-generation iPad “our most advanced technology in a magical and revolutionary device at an unbelievable price”.…
