Razer Blade Review: The Best Gaming Laptop Just Got Even Better

For years now, the Razer Blade the go-to laptop for gamers who want a little style mashed up with their function. The 2016 version is the best yet: It’s lighter, faster, and — critically — cheaper. Yup, Razer made its sharpest Blade yet.


DJI Phantom 4 Review: The Best Drone I've Ever Crashed

The DJI Phantom 4 is a slick, feature-packed drone. People say it’s the drone that anybody can fly, the quadcopter that you just can’t crash. Let me be painfully clear about two things: 1) Not everyone can fly the Phantom 4, and 2) It’s pretty damn easy to crash.


Razer Turret Review: Finally, A Mouse And Keyboard You Can Comfortably Use On The Couch

While a lot of televisions rattle off specs to make them appealing for PC gaming, and a lot of PC manufacturers shrink down their systems so they will fit in your media center, there’s still been one major issue with the concept of PC gaming from your couch.


Furbo Pet Camera Review: It Confused My Dog And Busted My Naughty Landlord

My dog started to get anxious about my recent move as soon as he saw me packing boxes. So when Furbo, an Indiegogo success, offered us its new pet camera with a built in treat dispenser, it seemed like a great way to keep an eye on him and keep him happy. Naturally, I wanted it.


Amazon Echo Dot and Tap Review: Alexa-Enabled

The Amazon Echo was a clumsy implementation for what ended up being an idea with legs. People have an appetite for a seamless voice-controlled assistant. The Star Trek Computer! Jarvis! Hal! Except not evil! It’s legitimately cool how easy it is to ask this gadget something and get answers. Yet the Echo didn’t do much, and the unvarnished tubular design that required outlet power didn’t seamlessly slide into your life like a voice assistant ought to.


New Roku Streaming Stick Review: All You Need

Do you own a set-top box that you love? That’s great — keep loving it! Are you interested in seeing what all the fuss is about? Then consider the new $US50 ($64) Roku Streaming Stick. It’s cheap and easy and versatile, and frankly, that’s really what you should want.


Razer BlackWidow X Chroma Review: This Psychedelic Mechanical Keyboard Made Me A Believer

I’m by no means a hardcore gamer — whatever that even means in the growing world of esports and Let’s Plays. I’m not travelling to competitive tournaments or staying up nights, bloodshot and caffeinated, playing the latest and greatest RPG or MMO. Yet I do log a considerable amount of Steam hours, and in my amateur pursuits of gaming glory, I’ve mostly stuck with keyboards included on gaming laptops (small New York apartments abhor gaming rigs). I’ve used plenty of mechanical keyboards before, but for my gaming needs, nothing ever felt substantially better than what was already attached to my laptop. But after two weeks of toying with Razer’s new Blackwidow X Chroma, I’m starting to rethink my position.

You Haven't Lived Until You've Watched Daredevil On LG's $US12,000 G6 OLED TV

The jump to colour from black and white, to high definition from standard — even the unmitigated failure that was 3D — those were moments in TV history. What we’ve currently got are gentle, natural leaps in picture quality: wider colour gamuts and HDR.


Reviewed: Our Favourite Laptop Backpacks

We hold our backpacks to the same high standards as everything else we review and buy, and while we’d like to pick a “best backpack,” we know it’s impossible to make one pick that fits everyone’s style, budget, body type, and carrying needs.
