Nest Wifi Review

One of the issues I've had in my home since I moved in during the fall of 2016 was the inability to have a solid internet connection all around my home. I live in a fully detached side split home, with 4 distinct levels. My providers cable enters the right side of my house into a bedroom - odd place, I know - which means getting a solid connection on the left side of my home is pretty difficult. What makes it worse is that this is the area we spend quite a bit of our time, watching TV, cooking, and entertaining guests. We've used mesh wifi systems to attempt ...

Creative Outlier Air V2 Review

Back in September 2019, we review the Creative Outlier Air's and were really impressed with the overall audio quality. In our review, we were probably a bit nicer than we should have been, because over long periods of the time, the buds did ultimately hurt my ears. When Creative reached out and said they had the Outlier Air version 2 available, I was intrigued to see if the issues I had with the first pair after a few months were rectified in this one. Let's take a look!

Astro A20 Generation 2 Review

New consoles means new headsets, and while there are a surprising number of recently released headsets that don't work on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, we are happy to report that the Astro A20 Generation 2 set is not one of them. After a few weeks trying and testing the product, our impressions are pretty strong.

Hisense Q8G 4K ULED Android TV Review

Television units are becoming shockingly expensive again, after nearly a decade of prices slowly decreasing. Brand new technology, including brand new consoles such as the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X, are so powerful, they are demanding more from television sets than ever before. With the introduction of HDMI 2.1 - which will allow gamers to play games at 4K resolution at 120 frames per second - might be the single biggest contributor to increased prices. So what's a person to do if they want a 4K experience, but not shell out north of $1500? Look for ...

123 Sesame Street LEGO Ideas Review

LEGO Ideas is one of the greatest things the corporation has done in recent memory, allowing fans to submit their own designs and ultimately picking some of those designs to turn into actual LEGO sets. The majority of these LEGO Ideas sets hit on nostalgia while others just look really, really cool. While a Sesame Street set might seem more appropriate for someone in the 6-12 age range, this LEGO Ideas set is banking on adults fondly remembering their time on Sesame Street as a kid. And after I put my set together, I understood how deeply having this set hits home.

Sony Pulse 3D Wireless Headset Review

A next generation system isn't all it can be without a whack of additional next generation accessories to go along with it. We previously reviewed the Sony PS5 Media Remote and, for the most part, really enjoyed that product. Now it's time to look at yet another next generation accessory from Sony - the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset. In a market with so many amazing headset products, is Sony able to push through with this one? Let's take a look.

More LEGO Super Mario Launching January 1, 2020

It's hard to really gauge the popularity of specific LEGO sets because so many are produced for consumption. Sure, in unique scenarios, very specific sets sell out, and they sell out quickly. Think about the $800+ LEGO Millennium Falcon, for example. But LEGO Super Mario has always been available, with a few sets going out of stock early on, only to be plentiful now. Things must be going well, however, as LEGO moves to release even more sets in 2021.

iRobot Roomba i7+ Review

Over the past few weeks, we have been testing the iRobot Roomba i7+ in our home. While we have published a few articles, we felt that full review wouldn't happen until we had spent ample time with our Roomba. With 3 young kids, our house gets dirty a lot, and even I was skeptical with how well the Roomba would perform, given our cramped living space and overly messy children. Exactly how well did this iRobot product perform? Let's take a look.

While relatively inexpensive compared to other video game console accessories, is the PS5 media remote worth the investment? Read on below why we say both yes, and no!
