Review: Toyota Supra GT – The Complete Package

There’s a common thought in business that the most successful companies are those that are open and willing to partner with other companies to achieve sustainable growth – especially during tough times.

Review: SanDisk Extreme Pro 300MB/s – The Best SD Cards

The two fold marriage of products, camera and storage. After comparing stats, watching multiple YouTube videos, swaying back and forth on which camera and lens is best for you, you finally confirm your decision and make the purchase. Then comes the second crucial decision, what media is best to record to? When preparing for any kind of shoot, no matter where we are, or what type of situation, we are always looking for the best and fastest ways to capture our footage.

Review: Motorola Moto e6s – Less Can Be More

The Motorola moto e family shows that the size of the sticker price of a smartphone is in no way related to its hardware and software features. Ever since Google sold Motorola to Lenovo in 2014, the engineers have been working away on a range of devices that provide a robust and elegant form-factor matched to the 9th Generation of Google’s Android operating system. The moto e6s is a new entrant for Motorola in the Australian market. With an RRP of $179 this is one of the best value...

Review: Tovala Steam Oven – The Oven That Makes Home Cooking Easy

As an enthusiast of both kitchen-craft and technology, I am constantly tinkering with new ways of doing things in the kitchen, and new devices of all kinds to make the kitchen a more exciting place, especially devices that introduce an entirely new concept into my arsenal. As such, I wanted the first device review to launch our new segment focusing on home kitchen and cooking technology innovation to be something very clever and truly fascinating. The Tovala Steam Oven took up that mantle quite nicely. But does it live...

Review: Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus

The Ring doorbell completely redefined home security and peace of mind when it was launched in 2012. Founder Jamie Siminoff’s wife described it as “Caller-ID for your front door.”. Originally branded as ‘Doorbot’, Ring grabbed hold of a market that was more than ripe for enhancement. So too did NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal who took an equity stake in 2016. Amazon subsequently bought the company for $1.2-$1.8B in February 2018.

Review: Pad & Quill Contega Thin Case

There is no greater satisfaction as a designer than setting up a beautiful workspace and immersing yourself in work, especially now more than ever before. For years now, ever since I got my first iPad, I have considered the case as the most relevant accessory you can get for an iPad. No matter how often or not you use it, a protective case is the first thing that you interact with most, so never underestimate its importance. Having tested the Pad & Quill Contega Thin case for three weeks...

Review: 2020 Kia Stinger GT Carbon Edition

I have written of my fondness for Kia’s vehicles on more than one occasion here at SonnyDickson.com, so my expectations were pretty high when I slid behind the wheel of the 2020 Kia Stinger GT Carbon Edition. The Carbon Edition is a limited run model sitting at the top of the Stinger range next to the Night Sky Edition. Think of the Carbon Edition as more sporty and spirited and the Night Sky Edition as luxurious, soft and supple – but still very much a Stinger.

Review: Callaway Chrome Soft Golf Balls

One of the upsides of COVD-19 and the lockdowns is that leisure activities like bike riding and golf are flourishing. With a renewed vigour for golf and joining one of the local courses, we’ve taken a keen interest in the vast array of golf equipment that is now available at your local pro-shop. The team at Callaway Australia were good enough recently to send us a couple of sleeves of their new Chrome Soft Golf Balls to try out. Retailing at approximately $70 per dozen, the 2020 Chrome Soft...

Review: ASUS GT-AX11000 Gaming Router

We’re done with waiting for Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) connectivity because it is finally here. It might take some time before we finally leave the Wi-Fi 5 in favor of the new crowd favorite, one that is faster and can seamlessly connect to multiple wireless devices at once. Nevertheless, those who want to live on the fast lane will have plenty of choices when it comes to Wi-Fi 6 enabled routers. One of those is the ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AX11000.

Review: IK Multimedi – iRig Keys 2 Mini

Whether you’re a professional musician who makes a career off of music or you just enjoy creating melodies as a hobby, it can be difficult for anyone when you think of a possible beat or even a full chord progression when you don’t have an instrument around. You could be literally anywhere and have inspiration hit you with the gift of the perfect notes, but then you face the task of keeping them in your head until you can reach somewhere to record. This problem has plagued enough composers...

Review: Keychron K2 – Wireless Mechanical Keyboard

Mechanical keyboards offer superior accuracy than dome-switch keyboards. They’re the choice of professionals and hardcore gamers because of their reliability and feel. But the perfect mechanical keyboard isn’t always easy to find. Most are too small, too stiff, and too noisy. The perfect keyboard would have to be quiet, wireless, compatible with Mac computers, and not feel like a typewriter. If you’re looking for a modern mechanical keyboard, you should check out the Keychron K2. It offers customizable lighting, wireless connectivity, switchable Mac and Windows layouts and more.

Review: Seagate BarraCuda Fast SSD

Our whole lives are stored in electronic devices. From smartphones to laptops, having enough storage is always a necessity, but we always seem to be running out of space. While many companies are offering cloud storage, it will never live up to the standards held by external hard drives. Enter the Seagate Barracuda Fast SSD. If you follow the latest news on the storage market, you’ll know that Seagate has come through with several products under their “Fast” brand. Now, with the Barracuda Fast, they’re giving us upgraded hardware,...

Review: 2020 Volvo V60 T5 Inscription

Not since I spent many a Summer’s day in the back of my neighbour’s baby blue 244 DL commuting to and from the beach, have I looked forward to spending time in a Volvo estate car. My love affair with the Volvo XC60 T8 Polestar Engineered is well documented, so the opportunity to get behind the wheel of another of Sweden’s automotive gems was very easy to say yes to.
