AiDot Linkind Matter A19 Smart Light Bulb Review: Cheap RGBW E27 Smart Bulbs for Home Assistant

I didn’t have the best experience with Matter when I first used it with the Google Nest WiFi Pro, but since then, there has been a growing number of Matter-enabled devices, and I have switched to Home Assistant for all my smart home needs. The AiDot Linkind represent a perfect example of why Matter is…

Dreo ChefMaker Combi Fryer Review – An air fryer with steam cooking makes this a perfect sous vide alternative  

Everyone loves a good air fryer; they are cheaper to run than an oven and often produce better results while also being healthier due to the reduced need for oil.   I have reviewed some excellent fryers over the past few years, including the Proscenic T21 Smart air fryer, Proscenic T31 and the HYSapientia 25L…

Ugreen Nexode Pro GaN Fast Charger Review – 160W 4-Port X763 & 100W 3-Port X757 Power Delivery Plugs

I have been a big fan of Ugreen recently, and I think they are one of the best companies for USB peripherals, such as power delivery chargers, USB hubs, and power banks. Out of their Nexode range, I have previously reviewed the Nexode 300W 5-Port PD GaN Desk Charger and the 3-port Nexode 140W. Both…

Huion Inspiroy 2 L Pen Drawing Tablet Review – An Affordable Entry-Level Pen Tablet

Huion Inspiroy 2 L Pen Drawing Tablet Review – An Affordable Entry-Level Pen Tablet

I previously reviewed the superb Xencelabs Pen Tablet, which is a more affordable and arguably superior alternative to the popular Wacom Intuos Pro. However, at around £290 for the medium bundle model, it is still quite expensive unless you are quite serious about your digital art and design. There are plenty of affordable alternatives, and…

Poco X6 Review – An excellent sub-£300 Android phone with expandable storage and 3.5mm headphone jack

Xiaomi sub-brand Poco has announced its latest devices, the X6 and X6 Pro. These are affordable phones that are very similar in specification. From the initial rumoured specs of the Poco X6 Pro, the only differences I can see are that it has a much better Dimensity 8300 Ultra chipset, faster 90W charging and faster…

AENO Seasonal Premium Eco Smart Panel LED Heater Review – AGH0003S

I am a big fan of smart heating, and with the cost of gas and electricity, it has become more important than ever to have greater control over your heating. My home has gas-powered central heating, so I don’t particularly need an electric heater, but this Aeno Premium Eco Smart LED Heater is superb, albeit…

Netgear Armor Review: Is it worth it vs PiHole / Adguard / NextDNS?

As I normally review several Netgear consumer routers and mesh systems each year, I thought I should do a dedicated review of Netgear Armor rather than rehashing the information in each review. Netgear Armor is the security feature that is baked into most modern Netgear routers and mesh systems. It is a subscription-based service that…

Paulmann Zigbee Filament & GU10 Smart Bulbs Review – Philips Hue Compatible RGBW Smart Bulbs

I have previously reviewed the excellent Paulmann Velora Zigbee Smart LED Panel, which is an excellent alternative to the Philips Hue light panels.

IPEVO VOCAL AI Beamforming Bluetooth Speakerphone Review

I have reviewed several speakerphones in the past few years, including the Poly Sync 20+ smart speakerphone and Audeze Filter personal conference speaker. These are handy devices to have, and I find they are best suited for people who use laptops for video calls, as they provide significantly better audio quality for both the microphone…
