Kingston DataTraveler Max USB 3.2 Gen 2 flash drive review – Massive storage in a flash

REVIEW – If you own a computer, you’ve probably used a thumb drive, or more accurately, a flash drive. They’ve been around forever, but they are (in)famous for lacking in memory, expensive (for the larger capacity versions) and slooooow to transfer data. Recently, that’s all been changing as drives are getting larger and more affordable. …

Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro earbuds review – not quite AirPods Pro but close and way less expensive

REVIEW – Ever since the Apple AirPods Pro earphones came out, I kinda feel sorry for other wireless earbud makers. No matter how good their earbuds may be—and many are great—none can equal Apple’s Spatial Audio. Spatial Audio is an incredible 3D audio addition to an already good-sounding earphone. Once you hear it, there’s no …

Flashfish A301 portable power station review – “We may be small, but we are mighty.”

REVIEW – It’s weird reviewing a small portable power station right after testing a monster power generator—the Generark HomePower 2 power station. But if you’re serious about being able to weather storms (pun intended), then smaller generators can be as useful as their larger, more powerful cousins. Sometimes, you just need something you can easily …

Generark HomePower 2 Backup Battery Power Station and SolarPower 2 review – an impeccably dressed monster

REVIEW – In late 2020, I reviewed the Generark HomePower One, a beast of a portable solar generator at 1000 watt-hours strong. I also chided Generark, because the HomePower One is a clone of the Japanese version of the Jackery Explorer 1000. That’s not a slight, because, with its fold-down handle, the Japanese Jackery is …

XP-Pen Artist Pro 16 Pen Display Graphics Tablet review – great for mobile artists on a budget

REVIEW – Almost everybody knows what an iPad is. It’s become ubiquitous in our tech-centered lives. What almost everybody does not know is that there are tablets out there artists use that aren’t iPads at all. In fact, these tablets need to be hard-wired to a computer just to work. A company called XP-Pen makes …

Tronsmart Splash 1 Portable Wireless Speaker review – Ridiculously cheap good sound

REVIEW – Have we finally reached the saturation point with portable Bluetooth speakers yet? It seems that new ones are popping up every week—and boy, are they now cheap! However, despite the number of Bluetooth speakers I’ve reviewed over the years, I’ve yet to grow tired of them. There’s just something about quickly grabbing a …

Motoilet Health Tracking AI Smart Bidet Toilet Seat review – Everybody poops, but hold it for now

CROWDFUNDING REVIEW – Everybody poops.  There, I got that out of the way. And since everybody poops, everybody consumes a lot of toilet paper. Our house has a septic system, so the paper (theoretically) dissolves and slowly works its way back into the Florida (where I live) aquifer as clean water. I’m not convinced about …

Celia & Perah M2 Portable Hi-Fi Speaker review – Can a small speaker be called hi-fi?

REVIEW – At the beginning of the pandemic lockdown in the spring of 2020, I reviewed two DIY speakers—the R1 and R2—from a boutique audio company called Celia & Perah. I stated that building these speakers was perfect for doing something together as a family and having something useful to show for it—a decent-sounding speaker/radio. …

Master & Dynamic MW08 True Wireless Earphones and MC100 review – a great combination

REVIEW – Three months ago, I reviewed the Master & Dynamic MW08 True Wireless Earphones and said that they are better than M&D’s previous MW07 Plus earphones in every way. Well, M&D has never been one to sit on their success for long. In a couple of short months, they’ve already introduced the MW08 Sport …

TCL MOVEAUDIO S600 TWS earbuds review – an affordable alternative to AirPods Pro

REVIEW – You might think that when choosing totally wireless earphones, the sound quality would be the deciding factor. Maybe not. There’s also comfort, call quality, ease of use, brand cachet, and of course—price to consider. Generally, you can have any five of the six listed. For instance, if you opt for sound, comfort, call …

Ultenic U11 cordless vacuum cleaner review – great for hard floors

REVIEW – Recently, I reviewed the Dyson V15 Detect+ cordless stick vacuum cleaner and it’s phenomenal. However, the Dyson is über expensive and is financially out of reach of many households. But that doesn’t mean a good—and affordable—cordless stick vacuum cleaner is unattainable. Far from it. There are many out there and this is a …

Tribit Home speaker review – it’s not just a speaker

REVIEW – It’s always fun when a smaller audio company comes from seemingly nowhere and begins besting the bigger boys in both price and audio quality. Case in point: Tribit. I‘ve reviewed some of their Bluetooth speakers and headphones and been impressed by both—the speakers more than the headphones. The Tribit line of speakers looks …

Dyson V15 Detect+ cordless stick vacuum cleaner review – The best one yet.

REVIEW – There’s an old saying that says, “The more things stay the same, the more they change.” Wait—that’s backward. No matter, because it applies where Dyson is concerned. Their line of cordless stick vacuum cleaners has revolutionized the market. It seems everyone is now copying what Dyson began. Years ago, we bought a Dyson …

Bowers & Wilkins PI7 in-ear true wireless headphones review – definitely worth the wait

REVIEW – Ten years ago (has it been 10 years?), I reviewed Bowers & Wilkins first earphones—the C5. They sounded good but were not comfortable for my ears.  I couldn’t really enjoy them for more than an hour. Fast forward to now—B&W has come out with their first wireless earphones, the PI5 and PI7 (reviewed …
