Wacom Cintiq 22 display tablet review – A digital artist’s dream

REVIEW – Last year, I reviewed the Wacom Cintiq 16 tablet, which was (at the time), Wacom’s entry-level tablet with a built-in display. Now, there’s an even newer (and cheaper) Wacom One display tablet which almost makes the Cintiq 16 irrelevant. But this isn’t a review of the Wacom One (that comes later). This is …

Eight Sleep The Pod review – A gadgeteer worthy mattress

REVIEW – Years ago, my wife and I had a cheap solid block of foam mattress which sagged in places after only a couple of years. Since then, we only bought “normal” innerspring mattresses—afraid to go the foam route again. However, science marches on and we again considered getting a foam mattress to replace our …

Braven BRV-XXL/2 Bluetooth speaker review – Big. Heavy. and Loud.

REVIEW – When Braven was owned by another company, they had a slew of speakers to choose from—almost too many. After they were purchased by accessory maker Zagg, Braven drastically trimmed their speaker line. One speaker—the BRV-XXL—survived the cut in the form of the updated BRV-XXL/2. I only say updated rather than improved because, in …

Paperlike iPad Screen Protector review – Give your iPad a pen on paper feel

REVIEW – It’s unusual to review something that when used properly, becomes practically invisible—almost like a ghost product. However, the Paperlike iPad Screen Protector is real. It sits on the screen inconspicuously doing its thing. But it’s also become an important—and affordable addition to the iPad. What is it? The Paperlike iPad Screen Protector is …

The Eight Sleep Pod is the first bed that warms or cools for a perfect night’s sleep

NEWS – When it comes to getting a good night’s sleep in the 21st century, it’s not enough to just replace an old mattress with a new one. It’s now gotten … complicated. Instead of old-time spring coil mattresses, you can now choose from foam, air or hybrid designs. We now buy “sleep systems”.  One …

Master & Dynamic MW07 GO and MW07 PLUS earphones review

REVIEW – In my mind, the Master & Dynamic MW07 earphones are one of—if not the best sounding earphones available today. When you pair their audiophile sound quality with extreme comfort, it’s a winning combination. However, they were not without flaws. Battery life was almost embarrassing and moisture resistance wasn’t great which limited use to …

X by KYGO A11/800 Noise Canceling Headphone review

REVIEW – Did you know that other parts of the globe offer audio products that are not available in the U.S.? There’s a lot of cool stuff we in the states never get to experience. Sometimes though, a brand will skip the pond and show up on our shores—such as X by Kygo from Norway. …

Brydge is tracking 2020 with their new Brydge Pro+ Keyboard

NEWS – Remember the term, “We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it”? Well, we’re there and Brydge has crossed over, so to speak. Their venerable iPad Pro keyboard now has an integrated trackpad—yea!  If you’re on the fence about dumping that laptop, the Brydge Pro+ Keyboard might make it easier to switch. The …

Erzetich Thalia portable dynamic headphone review

REVIEW – With rare exception, most headphones are made in China no matter where they might be designed. Erzetich is one of those rarities. It’s a headphone and amplifier company from Slovenia. If you’ve never heard of Slovenia, it used to be a part of Yugoslavia, a former Eastern Bloc country controlled by Russia. Thankfully, …

Aiaiai TMA-2 HD Wireless headphone review

REVIEW – It’s all in the headband.  Aiaiai is a headphone maker from Denmark with a minimal aesthetic. Their TMA series is famous for its modular way of “building” headphones. In 2015, I reviewed the (then new) TMA-2 Modular headphones. The sheer number of parts Aiaiai sent for that review was overwhelming. This time, I …

Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro TWS earphones review

REVIEW – It seems that any new totally wireless earbuds/earphones promise that they sound better or are less expensive than Apple’s AirPods. Here’s the truth: Unless the earphone has Apple’s W1 or H1 chip, it’s never going to be an AirPod killer. Convenience is king and AirPods rule that kingdom. Strangely, it’s why I appreciate …

Solar powered headphones from JBL? Well, kinda

NEWS – Everyone knows that solar-powered means an object can use solar cells to derive power from the sun. Simple, eh? Except, that solar requires a larger surface area to be efficient. However, that may be changing as audio company JBL has teamed with the Swedish company Exeger to make not an exclusively solar-powered headphone, …

Master & Dynamic MH40 Wireless Over-Ear Headphone review

REVIEW – I have reviewed many of Master & Dynamic’s headphones beginning with their first in early 2015—the iconic MH40. These headphones looked like no other then—or now for that matter. The MH40 headphones have a retro design reminiscent of the 1940s with modern touches added. In my review of the MH40 phones, I wrote, …

Coway Airmega AP-1512HH air purifier review

REVIEW – Let’s be honest: Very few people have the equipment to test the efficacy of air purifiers. I certainly don’t. I don’t even have breathing or allergy problems. So why am I reviewing the Coway Airmega Air Purifier? The reason is simple—we live in Florida (where everything grows) and my wife suffers from asthma. …
