The drone market is pretty jampacked these days, so it’s pretty tough to decide which one to buy. While there are some great high-end models for advanced flyers and aerial photographers, they have a tendency to cost $800 to $1000.
When I first came across a press release for Pyle’s “1000-watt” boombox, the Street Blaster X, I had my doubts that a battery-powered portable sound system could achieve such lofty numbers. Now that I’ve had a chance to go hands on (and ears on) with this gigantic Bluetooth speaker, I’m really torn.
Headphones are like cars. There are cheap and basic ones that get the job done, and then there are Ferraris. The Focal Elear is one of the luxury supercars of the headphone world. Everything about them exudes quality, from their impeccable build and styling to their incredible sound.
French audio gear maker Focal may not be a common name among everyday electronics buyers, but they’re well known in the audiophile community for their high-end speakers, which can cost thousands of dollars. With the release of Focal’s Listen headphones, buyers can enjoy some of the engineering know how that goes into such fancy listening devices without breaking the bank.
HP takes on rivals Microsoft and Dell with its latest 2-in-1, and it looks like they’ve got a winner on their hands. The HP Elite x2 1012 G1 combines style, functionality, build quality and versatility in a single package.
I recently got my hands on a selection of audio gear from Raumfeld, a German maker of high-end audio systems who recently made their entry into the U.S. market. I’m a big fan of their Stereo Cubes bookshelf speakers, and now I’m checking out their Sounddeck home theater speaker system to see if it lives up to the same quality.
While much of today’s business takes place online, there are still many times when paper documents come in handy. Whether you need to hand out a business presentation, flyers, or mark up a contract, every business still needs to print.
Raumfeld may not be a well known name here in the U.S., but they’ve been making high end audio gear in Germany since 2008. Recently, the company started selling its premium wireless audio systems here in the States.
My wife and I have been in the market for a new mattress, and we’ve been debating between going with an old school spring mattress or a modern memory foam one. Along the way, I stumbled onto a new mattress company called HIBR, whose aim is to create comfortable and supportive mattresses that take advantage of the latest in foam technologies without breaking the bank.
Over the years, I’ve worked with all different sizes of laptops, from tiny 10″ netbooks to hulking 17″ luggable workstations. Each of these served its purpose, but the fact is that unless you’re doing heavy duty content creation, 15″ and larger laptops are too bulky for most users to carry around, so a 12″ or 13″ model is ideal for everyday productivity.
I’ve been a regular user of the 2015 and 2016 model Dell XPS laptops – the XPS 13 and XPS 15, and have been very impressed with the overall performance, usability and build quality of these portable workhorses.
For several years now, the Sony DSC-RX100 digital camera has been lauded as the king of point-and-shoots, packing near-DSLR quality photography into a camera that can fit into your pocket. Over the years, Sony has revised the camera several times, and we’re now on the 4th generation of the diminutive, but powerful shooter, the RX100 Mark IV.
Ever since Dremel first introduced its Idea Builder 3D printer last year, I’ve been excited to get my hands on one. From everything I’ve seen and heard, it appears to be a very good value for an easy to use and versatile 3D printer.
Toyota recently invited me out to southern California to take some time getting to know the new 2016 Prius. While the Prius is known for its exceptional fuel economy and eco-consciousness, it doesn’t exactly have a reputation for being a fun or dynamic car.
Last year, I had the opportunity to go hands-on with the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, and thought it was an excellent system – offering performance, great battery life, an amazing screen and both tablet and laptop capabilities in a single system.
