PROBOX 2 Air Plus: Very Fast Android TV-Box! [Review]

The all new PROBOX 2 Air Plus is as fast as it says on the site. After testing for a couple of days, it runs smoothly and video quality is very nice. The PROBOX 2 Air Plus has GB DDR4 RAM, 32GB eMMC flash memory and up to 1Gbps Ethernet. It can even show up to 4K video with the all-new 10-bit video and HDR. A lot of weird words, I know, but it just means it’s a good device.

The AllBe1: A Mini Security System With Cool Functions! [REVIEW]

I have to admit I was a little skeptical about this product at first, but I’m actually convinced this can be your Security Guardian! This little portable device connects via Bluetooth and is controlled by the app. Without the app, it’s useless. In the box, there are some accessories for the different functions, but no micro-USB cable, which is a bummer but simple enough to find elsewhere. It only takes an hour to charge and can run for 60 days…

Avantree Torpedo PLUS – the little speaker that could [Review]

There’s a new Avantree Torpedo Bluetooth Speaker out, and it offers some interesting improvements in quality. So what has changed since the classic Torpedo? Well, just about 4mm is all. Plus some extra buttons. But wait, there’s still some more. Take a look at my video below to see more details. Super Summary Pros: – The form factor, packaging, etc. is almost unchanged – The technical details more or less unchanged – However the sound quality is definitely better (especially…

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 – excellent iPad Pro Pencil alternative! [Review]

Samsung calls it the all-new versatile tab S3, and it actually is. But how much better is it than its predecessor, and does it justify the premium price? Watch my review video to get an idea. AKG speakers, sAMOLEDscreen, S pen… the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 has it all, which you would probably expect for the price. The tablet is around $650 – $750 depending on your choice of Wifi/4G and storage options. It has a glass design, which is…

2017 Jaguar F-Pace – their first SUV: 59 mpg, aluminium construction and a set of waterproof keys [Review]

The premium SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) market is for luxury car makers what the Oscars after-party is to celebrities: each is desperate to get in on the action to further their own careers. When Porsche launched their Cayenne SUV fifteen years ago they went from zero (profit) to money-making hero. Making sports cars is all very well, yet like owning a selection of race horses, they may look impressive, but you try making money from them! SUVs on the other…

Amazon Echo vs Echo Dot V 2.0 – can your life assistant really be digital? [Review]

The Amazon Echo and Echo Dot hands free ‘intelligent’ home controllers have been on the market for some time now, but with the new release of the Echo Dot Version 2.0 we thought it was a great excuse to check out some state of the art tech. Especially since Amazon is constantly extending the features of the Echo and the rather clever voice assistant called Alexa. Of course there’s no shortage of rivals – step up Siri, Cortana and Google…

Probox 2 Air – cool Android TV Box is small and delicious [Review]

We’re getting close to the point now where Android TV boxes are actually more of a commodity than anything else, which is always an interesting test for a product type. Will the price plummet, will the build quality go up or down, what extra features will we see in the later incarnations? From the looks of it, we’re seeing a solid set of answers from this market, which is good news. The quality appears to be consistent, the pricing stable…

2017 Volvo V90 – Swedish luxury and self-drive economy (65 mpg) – this is not your grandfather’s Volvo Estate [Review]

Volvo has always liked to do things differently according to their bigwigs, but in the past, different often seemed to mean cars that could be best described as safe, practical and dependable. Not bad qualities in fairness, but thanks to some hefty investment from Volvo’s Chinese parent, Geely, their latest flagship S90 (saloon) and V90 (estate) now offer additional terms of endearment like sleek, handsome and modern.  This level of progress continues inside too with the offer of suitably futuristic…

DodoCool Pocket Phone Charger – tiny budget power pack is perfect to keep you going [Review]

Why oh why do smartphones still run out of charge half way through the day? We’re in the 21st century right, so surely they can design these things so they last longer? It looks like every time they increase the performance of a battery, they have to add some stupid new feature which sucks the life out of it. Result? We still all need to carry around spare power packs just in case. It sucks. Anyhoo, rant over. Here’s a…

MiTRE – micro turbine could destroy range anxiety in EVs at last [Video Report]

Buried in last month’s news and product launches was this rather clever bit of British engineering, which could mean the end of range anxiety for electric vehicles. The MiTRE (aka Micro Turbine Range Extender) is a tiny form factor motor and generator which can charge up an EV battery as the car is moving. No more worrying about flat batteries!

TP-Link AC 2600 Router Modem – fast, flexible and a great way to spice up your home WiFi network [Review]

Home broadband is one of those things that we mostly forget about. We sign up, install the provider’s equipment, and that’s it right? Well there are two things missing here. First, the generic vanilla kit that broadband providers send out to us consumers is generally just average. They want to keep costs down. Second, even decent routers wear out over time, so it pays to keep track of your Internet connection to monitor for degradation. If you do notice any…

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 – super svelte tablet laptop hybrid is a winner [Review]

The name Microsoft and the word tablet computer are not natural partners, but in the past few years the company has been valiantly trying to play catch up in a field dominated by Apple with the iPad and Samsung et al with Android rivals. The marketplace for pure tablets has now cooled down a lot, but the rising popularity of hybrid products, which combine tablet features with keyboard computer power has demonstrated that there is still a demand. The Microsoft…

Bolt EV – road test of this brand new electric prototype [First look]

Life’s a funny old thing. There you are, minding your own business, when all of a sudden fate plays you a hand. A wry hand. A hand that makes you wonder just who is laughing at us minions down on the ground. Take, for instance, our recent short road test run of a shiny new electric car somewhere in the middle of the UK’s lovely countryside. It was fun. It was illuminating. What it definitely wasn’t, was a car I…
