Alto Original and Anello iPhone X cases and neck strap review

The release of the iPhone X was exciting, but I had to convince myself it was worth it due to the hefty price tag. The larger display, yet smaller design topped with wireless charging ended up selling it for me. Now that I’ve got a mortgage payment in my pocket, I had to get a …

ACGAM gaming keyboard, mouse, and mouse pad review

While I love the ability to brighten my desk via the RGB lighting systems and lighted PC fans, I’ve never really taken advantage of it. My PC speakers have some lighting, but that’s about it. I noticed ACGAM had their AG-109R keyboard and G502 mouse set that utilizes the RGB lighting and are made for …

Belkin Pocket Power 5,000mAh charger review: A cute way to quickly charge your devices.

When it comes to day trips and travel days, I’ve been using the same portable battery pack for years to keep my phone topped off. During that time, battery packs have become not only smaller but pack more power into that smaller unit. Belkin offered their Pocket Power 5,000mAh portable charger to review and I …

Bezalel Latitute case & Omnia wireless car charger review

I love my iPhone, but the one thing that it has been lacking in is wireless charging. You can get a case with a battery inside that will wirelessly charge, but it adds bulk, and I enjoy the small form factor of the iPhone. I noticed Bezalel had a case solely for wireless charging called …

Archeer A110 wireless Bluetooth speaker review

I have always been a fan of cheap, useful gadgets. Sure, there are Bluetooth speakers on the market that are worth hundreds of dollars, but what about for those who are on a budget?

Kingston HyperX Pulsefire gaming mouse review

The next stop on my gaming gear journey has us looking at a gaming mouse. Now, Kingston is not a brand I usually associate with gaming peripherals, rather, I think of internal components instead. When the Kingston HyperX Pulsefire FPS gaming mouse was offered up for review, I thought I would give it a chance. …

Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset and Elite Pro Tactical Audio Controller review

I’ve been lucky enough to review several gaming items recently, but one thing I have never upgraded since I purchased them years ago is my gaming headphones. Turtle Beach must have heard this, and quickly offered their Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset and Elite Pro Tactical Audio Controller. I was eager to try out what …

Bitplay SNAP! 7 camera case and lenses for iPhone 7 Plus review

There is no question that I, and probably many of you readers, take a lot of photographs on a cell phone. It is always on you, and the cameras on them are getting better and better. I purchased the iPhone 7 Plus because of the camera, and I was intrigued to find out that there …

I’ve been playing games for years, yet I’ve always used a pair of cheap Dell speakers for my PC. I never thought much of PC speakers for gaming, instead always using headsets, but when Creative offered their Sound BlasterX Kratos S5 gaming speakers to be reviewed, it piqued my curiosity, and I had to try them …

DripJoy coffee service and JoyBarista coffee maker review

Like many households, mornings at the Chapman residence usually start with a trip to the coffee maker. I love my coffee hot, but I always put milk in mine, which cools the coffee to barely tolerable levels. DripJoy has a single serve coffee maker called the JoyBarista and a subscription coffee service with multiple types …

Playster media services, Playster8 tablet, and headphones review

Our household has had several online subscription services over the years. We’ve had Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, Prime Reading, and Spotify, and enjoyed the benefits that come along with each.
