I work by day in the tech industry (online learning software), but my alter ego is a gadget-obsessed techy nerd gamer. I also like hiking and stargazing.

XVX M87 Coral Sea Themed Mechanical Keyboard review – looks great while nailing the basics

REVIEW – Keyboards are essential, but often quite boring. Mechanical keyboards are a nice step up from the standard membrane keyboards included with most systems. Mechanical keyboards have a dizzying variety of options like the actual switches themselves (which affect typing resistance, feel, noise, activation point, and more), keycaps, lighting, etc. The XVX M87 Coral …

GameSir-X2 Pro-Xbox (Android) gaming controller review – like carrying around an Xbox Series X

REVIEW – I game on phones quite often. Much of that time has been spent using something like a Razer Kishi controller, or more recently the GameSir X2 Bluetooth that I bought personally after Julie reviewed it last year. Most of the time I play streaming games like through Xbox Gamepass, Nvidia Geforce Now, or …

Vantrue S2 dashcam review – record your driving from every direction

REVIEW – By now I think most of us have seen dashboard camera footage of some kind, whether it’s a humorous mistake or a harrowing near miss on the roads. In the era before dashcams, I had a collision where I was rear ended while going down a hill, and despite a healthy following distance …

REDMAGIC 7S Pro smartphone review – top tier gaming power in a sleek package

REVIEW – I’ve been a flagship-phone user for over a decade now, always trying the latest and greatest when I have the opportunity. Over 10 years ago I was using early Windows Mobile devices so I could do internet things (extremely slowly) while most people were still using “dumb phones”. I’ve had Android phones, Blackberries, …

UGEE 11.9 Inch Drawing Tablet review – decent beginner’s drawing tablet

REVIEW – I’ve always enjoyed sketching and doodling, but I’ve never seriously dabbled in digital art so far. When UGEE offered us the chance to try out their UGEE 11.9 Inch Drawing Tablet, I thought it would be fun to try getting better at creating things. I tried out the tablet with a variety of …

ORTUR Laser Master 2 S2 24V laser engraving machine review – frickin’ laser beams!

REVIEW – There have only been a handful of times in my life when I wished I had a laser cutter/engraver. It’s the sort of tool that hasn’t ever been at the top of my mind, but now that I’ve received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 S2 24V laser engraving machine to review, it’s opened …

Elegoo Saturn 2 8K 3D printer review – highly detailed resin prints made easy-ish

REVIEW – There are two popular types of 3D printers on the market today: resin (SLA -Stereolithography) and FDM (fused deposition modeling). We’ve reviewed many of both types here at The Gadgeteer including the previous Saturn model, but this new Elegoo Saturn 2 8k 3D printer will be both my first resin printer to test, …

Outdoor Master Electric Skateboard Cruiser review – an excellent longboard speed demon

REVIEW – I almost didn’t volunteer to review the Outdoor Master Electric Skateboard Cruiser. I’m pushing middle age, tend to be a bit clumsy, and bruised my tailbone the last time I rode a longboard (over 20 years ago). I’ve been curious about these electric skateboards I see around town, but I was worried about …

Laifen Swift hair dryer review – high end technology under $200!

REVIEW – A hair dryer has been a boring but essential part of my daily routine ever since I made the mistake of going to a barber a few years ago. I’d been using a $30 hair dryer I grabbed at Walmart for years which did the basic job of drying hair, but it was …

Datacolor SpyderX Studio kit review – professional color calibration for displays, cameras, and printers

REVIEW – A monitor calibration tool is something I’ve wanted for years, but I’ve never dropped the money on one yet. I’ve had great monitors and terrible monitors, and a spectrum of photo printers across the years as well. It’s always been a crapshoot in terms of what gets printed out versus what I edited …

VEVOR Heat Press machine review – unlimited t-shirts is a bad idea for me

REVIEW – If you have ever tried to make custom shirts without a heat press, you’ll know how hard it is to get vinyl or inkjet-iron-on designs to successfully adhere. Success requires even pressure and the correct heat, which is where a device like the VEVOR Heat Press machine comes in. What is it? The …

PECRON E1000 Portable Power Station and solar panel review

REVIEW – I’ve reviewed a handful of portable (and semi-portable) power stations over the years, and there are a couple of things I look for in a good power station now: good battery-to-price ratio ($1 per watt-hour of battery capacity has been the average going rate for a few years now), an informative display that …
