Guardians Of The Galaxy Review: Shut Up And Go See It

Let’s not mince words here. Guardians of the Galaxy is awesome, hilarious, super fun, and you should go see it.


Motorola Moto E: Australian Review

Motorola’s new Moto E has been a long time coming — it’s a super-cheap smartphone from a historied and respected manufacturer that isn’t terrible and doesn’t try to offer the world. And, if you look at it in the context of its bargain-basement price tag, you’ll be impressed.


KEF X300A Wireless Speakers: Australian Review

Wireless speakers are nothing new, but they’re usually relatively cheap and portable and designed to pair over Bluetooth with your smartphone at a picnic or the beach. What if you wanted something a little more serious for your living room? The high-end KEF X300A bookshelf speakers, new to Australia, can stream via DLNA or AirPlay and support high resolution 96kHz/24-bit audio over USB. All of this is Good Stuff.


LG G3: Australian Review

How have they done this? How? How has LG taken last year’s monumental disappointment and turned it into one of this year’s most exciting phones? You know what? I don’t even care how, all I care about is how good it is to use. This is the LG G3, and it’s the phone that demands your attention.

Sony BRAVIA X9500B 4K TV: Australian Review

Big TVs are great. Big, smart TVs are even better. Big, smart, ultra-detailed TVs are basically heaven. Sony has a new $20,000 4K Ultra HD telly that is, for my money, the best TV you can buy today. I spent a day with Sony’s 85-inch BRAVIA X9500B, and it was quite fun.


Guardians Of The Galaxy: Australian Review

If anyone needs me, I’ll be camping outside my local cinema waiting until I can go and see Guardians Of The Galaxy again. Here’s why.


Mini Cooper S: Australian Review

What happens when you take a much-loved car brand and re-release its iconic vehicle for the 21st century? What happens when you then tweak that re-release after a couple of years, and change a few things along the way? Mini’s revitalised Cooper S hatchback is more spacious, faster and more fuel-efficient than the previous model, but it’s not the perfect city car.


Samsung UD590 4K Monitor: Australian Review

The current crop of 4K monitors have a lot going on — they have to compromise on price, size, design and image quality all at the same time. You can either pay peanuts and get a monkey, or pay through the nose and get something unquestionably brilliant. Samsung’s new 28-inch UD590 4K monitor balances a number of spinning plates to get the compromise just right.


Amazon Fire Phone Review: A Shaky First Step

After years of rumours, Amazon’s first smartphone is finally, finally here. It’s unique, it’s can be fun, it’s a pretty decent phone. And you can do better.
