BT Whole Home Wi-Fi review

If you’re struggling to get Wi-Fi reception in certain areas of your house, then BT’s new Whole Home Wi-Fi setup could be for you. As the name suggests, this is a set of devices that should ensure your entire home is covered when it comes to wireless networking. It achieves this by including not just one single router that will ...

Kitchenaid’s fancy Pro Line Series Blender is powerful but fussy

If all you want from a blender is food-mincing muscle and premium build quality, then KitchenAid’s $630 Pro Series (£489 in the UK, roughly AU$848 in Australia) should certainly be on your short list. Equipped with a monster-size 3.5 peak horsepower motor set inside a massive die-cast metal base, this machine has blending power and then some. Unfortunately it also ...

Corsair One review: a console-like PC in the age of PC-like consoles

Over the past couple of months, I’ve been enjoying a rare privilege: a gaming PC that I didn’t have to build myself. In my many years of playing games and tinkering with technology, I’d never previously been exposed to this experience. My first ever PC was such a horribly underpowered and overpriced crate of beige that I swore off buying ...

Brother MFC-J5330DW review | TechRadar

You might well think that this looks like a typical, if rather ungainly, A4-capable multifunction printer – but you’d be wrong. Surprisingly, this MFP can also handle A3 paper, albeit for printing only.  Due to its deep 150-page capacity paper tray, rapid duplex (two-sided) print speeds, the inclusion of a fax facility and a 50-page ADF (automatic document feeder), we ...

Lighthouse Interactive Assistant Release Date, Price and Specs

Lighthouse While it looks like a fairly typical smart home camera on the outside, the Lighthouse has advanced 3D mapping built-in — tech similar to that which helps self-driving cars navigate. As a result, it could be the first smart home cam to not only watch over your home, but to understand it as well. Place the Lighthouse — a ...

The 1More Triple Drivers are the best headphones $99 can buy

The cost of a good pair of headphones has been steadily declining over the past few years, just as we’ve all started spending more on headphones. This apparent contradiction is explained by a shift in expectations: where we previously spent a pittance and expected little, we’re now being more generous in our pursuit of greater convenience and enjoyment, which in ...

Epson Expression Photo XP-960 review

There are plenty of all-in-one inkjet printers on the market, but not so many capable of handling A3 paper. Epson’s relatively affordable (£250 – that’s about $320, AU$435) lozenge-shaped MFP takes up no more desk space than its EcoTank ET4500, with a footprint of 148 x 479 x 356mm (H x W x D), but it doesn’t stop at A4 ...

LaCie 12big Thunderbolt 3 review

The 12big Thunderbolt 3 (TB3) is not for everyone, partly because not everyone can afford it. Starting at $6,399 (£ 5,649, price for Australia not yet available) for 48 terabytes of storage space, going all the way to $13,700 (£ 11,849) for 120TB, it’s one of the most, if not the most, expensive consumer-grade storage system on the market. And ...

The Galaxy S8’s beautiful design means a good case is hard to find

I’m normally not a phone case person, but a few factors made me decide I should get one for the Galaxy S8. I trust that it’s not any more fragile than other phones, but the broad expanses of curved glass have me a little worried about scratches. I’m also worried about full-on cracks, as I cracked the hell out of ...

Epson EcoTank ET-4500 review | TechRadar

Epson’s extensive product range includes the EcoTank series, the first printers to use bottled ink rather than closed cartridges. The EcoTank ET-4500 is a multifunction model that looks remarkably like the Epson Workforce WF-2650, except for the very visible liquid ink tanks attached to its side.  Like the WorkForce printer, the EcoTank can print, scan, copy and fax, plus it ...
