    Samsung Connect Home Review

    You don’t typically think of Wi-Fi routers when you think of Samsung’s product catalog, but considering all of the connected devices Samsung has created for the home, it certainly makes sense. The Samsung Connect Home is more than just a router, though — it’s a smart Wi-Fi system, Wi-Fi router, and SmartThings hub all in […]

    New Nintendo 2DS XL Review

    In a couple ways, the New Nintendo 2DS XL was a long time coming. Despite there being tons of handheld systems released in the Nintendo 3DS family, the New 2DS XL looked like it was going to hit a sweet spot when it was announced. I still remember being perplexed when I saw the (now-discounted) […]

    Jabra Elite Sport True Wireless Earbuds Review (2nd Gen)

    Usually, a refreshed device that simply tacks on a little battery life and nothing else wouldn’t be all that exciting, but it’s just that little tweak that has taken the Jabra Elite Sport true wireless earbuds from a great product to a potential must-have for runners. I reviewed the first generation Jabra Elite Sport buds […]

    JBL E55BT Quincy Edition Wireless On-Ear Headphones Review

    A while back, we reviewed the AKG N90Q headphones that were developed in partnership with Grammy-winning music legend Quincy Jones. Those headphones were nothing short of phenomenal, but they came with a phenomenally high price tag. Since then, JBL has been busy trying to bring Jones’s expertise to headphones that won’t leave you broke, and the […]

    LG Tone Free True Wireless Earbuds Review

    Ever since the likes of Bragi and Earin introduced us to true wireless earbuds, we’ve seen a deluge of competition from giants like Apple, Samsung, and Jabra to crowdfunded efforts like Skybuds. We’ve gotten to try a handful of them over the past year or so, but none of the products on the market have satisfactorily […]

    OnePlus 5 Review

    In 2014, OnePlus stormed into the Android phone market with premium hardware and pared down software at what seemed like an impossibly low price. In truth, the price — $300 — really was impossibly low. It was never going to be economically feasible for the company to keep offering flagship specs at that price forever, […]

    Huawei MateBook X Review

    Usually I’d advise against buying a first generation effort, regardless of brand or device. That’s especially true for new device categories, but it still holds true for established machines like laptops. When a company jumps in for the first time, there are almost always little pitfalls and snags that arise from a lack of experience […]

    Pearl RearVision Wireless Backup Camera Review

    True story: last summer, I replaced a fully-loaded 2015 model car with one from 2013. I was so used to having a full infotainment system that when I pulled out of the dealer’s lot, I instinctively stared at the screen…all to be reminded that this car doesn’t have a backup camera! If, like me and […]

    Things have been rough for HTC on the smartphone front. Four years ago, we all lusted after the excellent HTC One (aka.
