XP-Pen Deco LW Pen drawing tablet review – A decent and affordable drawing tablet alternative

REVIEW – If you are either a pro or amateur digital artist, you know what a drawing tablet is. And you probably even have one. And that tablet is probably a Wacom because they have been the “big kahuna” in the tablet market for years. They practically invented the drawing tablet.  What you probably don’t …

Orico TB3-S2 Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station review – Is it enough?

REVIEW – Let’s be real here. If you use a computer (desktop or laptop) for anything more than web surfing, chances are that the available ports are not going to be enough. My work laptop is a 16” MacBook Pro and even its generous number of USB-C ports (4) doesn’t cut it. I use double …

Togo Power Advance330 review – a funky little portable power station

REVIEW – What a difference a few years can make. It seems like only yesterday that you couldn’t find battery power stations because … they didn’t exist. Then Jackery and others came along and made them a popular household item. Portable power stations are just so handy to have around. Plus, they fit any budget, …

Lupe Pure Cordless vacuum cleaner review – it stands on its own

REVIEW – If you’ve ever wondered what Dyson designers could do if left on their own, the Lupe Pure vacuum cleaner might be the answer. Lupe was started by a couple of ex-Dyson employees who set out to make a better vacuum cleaner. In many ways, they succeeded, but the Lupe Pure vacuum cleaner is …

Roborock Dyad Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner review – Your floors will like you

REVIEW – Of all the gadgets I review, my wife prefers I review the ones that actually do something—like clean, for instance. She couldn’t care less about my audio fixation. Nope—as long as I review something that makes her life easier, she’s okay with the time I spend testing and writing. Just so you know, …

Dreo Pilot Max Tower Fan with Remote review – A Tower of Cool

REVIEW – Tower fans all about the noise—or lack of it. Our household has three tower fans in different rooms. What we were missing is a fan for the spare bedroom. We wanted something effective, but quiet. Tower fans fit the bill quite well. They are tall and skinny, so they can be tucked in …

X-Chair X77 Massage Chair review – On demand massages!

REVIEW – Once in a while, a gadget reviewer gets to review a product he or she would never consider purchasing for themselves. In my case, a massage chair was something that never crossed my mind. I’ve never been a sports nut (my wife is an exercise junkie) or ever thought I needed physical therapy. …

AnkerWork B600 Video Bar webcam review – Presenting a better you in online meetings

REVIEW – Working from home has been the best thing to happen in my career as a children’s publisher art director since—I don’t know when. However, as good as the transition to work-from-home was, it does present some challenges you don’t face in an office environment. One of the biggest challenges—for me—is getting the optimal …

Tribit StormBox Micro 2 Bluetooth speaker review – It’s still the audio bargain of the year

REVIEW – A year and a half ago, I reviewed the Tribit StormBox Micro, calling it the audio bargain of the year. I use that little speaker every day, either in the bathroom while showering or in the kitchen while doing dishes. It has become part of my daily life. Since that review, Tribit has …

REVIEW – Do you like music? Do you like disco? (Not judging) Do you like clubbing? Do you not like your budget? If so, we may have the perfect personal portable Bluetooth speaker – the Tribit XSound Mega. Why is it perfect? Technically, it’s not, but it may be perfect for your needs.    What …

Gadgeteer team – gear we’re using in 2022 (Bill Henderson)

ARTICLE – My contribution to the frequent “What’s in My Bag?” series is—nothing. See, I’ve been working from home (in a backyard studio/man cave) for 2 years. Although I still carry a messenger bag the 100 feet from my back door to my studio, it’s now just a pocket for my iPad pro, wallet, and …

Wacom Cintiq Pro 16 Pen Display review

REVIEW – As an art director and Photoshop artist, I’ve been using a Wacom tablet for well over 25 years. I began with their Intuos—a black slate that you draw on with a stylus (pen) while simultaneously looking at a separate monitor. Working like this takes a bit of hand-eye coordination, but I eventually came …

Holy Stone HS360 Drone review – a great little drone, but not for beginners

  REVIEW – If you’ve ever thought about buying a drone, a lot of questions may have crossed your mind. How much should I spend? What if it crashes? Do I need GPS? Do I need a license? Is it hard to master? Sooo many questions. Until now, I was that person. I had never …

Brennan B2 CD Ripper and Hard disk Jukebox review – all your high resolution digital music in one place

REVIEW – Do you still own CDs—like, a lot of CDs? I do. I own between 300-400 compact discs. And even though I now stream most of my music—I’m stubborn and not willing to give up music I physically own. I’m not parting with my CDs.  So, if you own a bunch of CDs and …

Movo WebMic HD Pro Webcam review – Virtually look your best in meetings

REVIEW – If you now work from home or even if you’ve always worked from home, it’s almost a certainty that you’ve attended meetings via Zoom Google Meet or Microsoft Teams video apps. Chances are if you rely on the built-in camera on a laptop, you probably are not happy with how you appear on …
