BrickHouse Security Wi-Spi EX30 Nightvision Camcorder w/ Wireless Monitor Review

Gadgeteer HQ is located in the basement of my home. Several times a week, I’ll be working on a review and will hear someone walk across my front porch and then ring the door bell. Most of the time it is a UPS or FedEx person, but either way, it would be great to be …

Klegg Electronics Genesis V1803 Camcorder

Are you looking for a really compact digital video camera that does even more than record video? How about one that can also take still pictures (ok, that’s not revolutionary in a camcorder), read ebooks, play MP3 music, take voice notes, and even play games.

Samsung Progressive HD Camcorder SC-HMX10C

In the two years since I reviewed the
Sanyo VPC-HD1 camcorder, I’ve been using it as my main method of capturing video. I love it for its size and ease of use, but have always been disappointed at its low light performance. Since I don’t include a video spot in all the reviews I do, I just kept putting up with the Sanyo instead of replacing it. That changed recently when the folks at Samsung invited me to review their SC-HMX10C Progressive HD camcorder. I’ve been using this camera for several weeks now, so let’s take a closer look….

Epson PictureMate Dash (PM 260) Portable Photo Lab

It’s strange, but in all the years that I’ve been using digital cameras, I find that I rarely print out my photos. I usually just copy them into a folder on my computer and look at them from time to time, or post some of them to my flickr account.

That’s why I was curious when I was approached by Epson to review their PictureMate Dash PM 260 Personal Photo Lab photo printer. I wasn’t sure if this printer would make me excited to print photos, or if I would continue to snap and file as before.
