Review: Zhiyun Smooth Q3 – The Smartphone Filmmaker’s Secret Weapon

The world of cinema has evolved over the past 10 years with the introduction of the smartphone as a viable and effective storytelling device. No longer are we restricted to the extremely pricey cinema cameras of Hollywood. The rest of us now have the power to film high-quality indies sitting right in our pockets. There have been entire productions shot entirely on iPhones and Androids. The quality of these cameras provides the wanna-be Spielbergs and Tarantinos with a foot in Hollywood’s door and a chance to showcase their talent....

Review: Shadow Warrior 3 – This Ninja Should Have Stayed Hidden

Flying Wild Hog’s latest installation of Shadow Warrior has been on my radar for a while. With the decision of having Shadow Warrior 3 drop the co-op loot based gameplay of Shadow Warrior 2 I was nervous getting into this crazy vibrant world for the third time. Was this departure, from what worked so well with it’s last game, the right call for this franchise or should this ninja have been sent back to the Dojo for some more lessons?

Review: Plugable 4K Displayport – UD-6950PDZ

The Plugable USBC Triple 4k HDMI and Displayport Display Horizontal Docking Station is a very impressive accessory catered to those who have laptops and are looking to expand their ports and displays. Regardless of its ridiculously long name this device has its uses but for the high price point is it necessary? The box that the Plugable Displayport comes in is extremely generic and the initial reveal was lacking. Not to mention the single small instruction “booklet” it came with had four pictures and roughly 25 words on it....

Lenovo IdeaPad 5i Chromebook Review: Functional, Basic Computing for the Masses (With a Few Caveats)

From my earliest days as a technology user, and in particular since I began reviewing products over a decade ago, I have taken joy in experiencing various different versions of the modern computing concept, whether that means different types of hardware, different operating systems, different interaction concepts such as touch screens, and so forth.  The latest aspect in this journey brought be from the land of souped up personal laptops to the humble ChromeBook – in this case Lenovo’s IdeaPad 5i ChromeBook – here are my thoughts.

Review: Turtle Beach Recon Wired Controller

Ever since gaming got popular there have been a large number of companies trying to cash in. A lot of them by making off brand controllers. I had one for my SNES back in the day. It wasn’t licensed by Nintendo, but the bonuses it came with made it worth it. Brands like MadCatz became known as the “little brothers’ controller” companies. The companies who made off-band products that never truly matched the quality of the real thing. That being said, I was extremely surprised by the quality of...

Review: Segway-Ninebot Kickscooter F40A – A Scooter to Boot or Buy?

The electric scooter giant Ninebot released a new electric scooter earlier this year called the Segway-Ninebot F40A.

Despite electric scooters being known as a great means for recreational and casual purposes, the...

Review: Synology DS220+ NAS – Sleek Home Storage

The concept of a NAS is not a new one. Network-Attached Storage (NAS) has been around for quite some time – especially if you’re old enough to have shared a folder on a network from a Windows PC back in the day. And with the rise of music and video streaming, demand for in-home storage of mp3 (music) and mp4/mov (video) files has waned. That is if you look at NAS from the perspective of a decade ago. Today the NAS is fundamental to any content creator that needs...

Review: Plugable USB Docking Station – More Than Just a Hub

I recall my introductory computing class in middle school. One of our vocabulary words was peripheral. To this day, I have trouble pronouncing it correctly, and don’t ask me to spell it without the aid of a spellchecker. It is defined as a term meaning, Peripheral: connected to a computer but not an essential part of it. Back then, most of the computers were a single unit. But we knew that a Peripheral could be a light pen or a mouse. The teacher told us a mouse was easier...

Review: Turtle Beach Recon 200 – One headset for any console.

For years Turtle Beach has been synonymous with affordable quality headsets.  I have purchased many different gaming headsets over the years and have found myself going back to Turtle Beach again and again.  It was not until recently that I have made the jump into more powerful and pricier headsets but I can’t deny my past experiences with, and love for, Turtle Beach products. Appearance Straight out of the box the headset itself is very slick.  Compared to other headsets it is medium sized.  It isn’t very flashy with...

Review: Anker SoundCore Frames – Reframe Your Sound

Headphones, earphones and earbuds are considered normal personal listening and communication accessories. They have batteries, speakers, microphones, touch controls and connect over bluetooth. The attempt to create streamlined smart sunglasses that blend in with normal eyewear, while having the same functionality, has been a struggle for years. Unlike headphones that can be unique and not draw attention to the wearer, everyone can tell there is something different with sunglasses that have big thick arms on both sides wrapping the users ears. . . That is of course, until now!...
