    Aerix Vidius HD Live-Streaming Mini-Drone Hands-On

    Earlier this year, we checked out the Aerix Vidius drone, a tiny quadcopter capable of streaming live video. Problem was, the video was limited to 420p.

    JBL Boost TV Review

    The JBL Boost TV is aptly named — it really does provide a much needed boost to your flat panel TV. I absolutely love my TCL Roku TV — it’s an incredible value and a great TV for the money, but its weakest aspect, like with most TVs, is its audio. It’s not just that the built-in […]

    2017 Chevy Cruze Hatchback Review

    Despite its affordable price, the 2017 Chevy Cruze Hatchback doesn’t feel or look like a budget hatchback. Its exterior is attractive, as is its two-toned interior, but beyond its good looks, there’s lots of tech packed inside to help make the Cruze look and feel like a more premium vehicle. The centerpiece of those tech […]

    Huawei Mate 9 Review

    We’ve reviewed a whole lot of phones this year, but very quietly, one of our favorites has remained a device that came out early in the year. The Huawei Mate 8 wasn’t perfect — Huawei’s EMUI overlay had a lot of problems and the graphics performance was lackluster — but as a pure productivity device, it was nearly […]

    Huawei Fit Review

    The relatively young wearable market is already showing signs of slowdown.
