Turtle Beach Stealth 420X+ Headset Review

Turtle Beach are renowned for their quality headsets and I’ve experienced this first hand after owning a couple of different models in the past, including my faithful P11’s. Of course things are now getting serious in the audio stakes, especially with competitive multiplayer games requiring an edge in audio precision. More kills are lost due to lack of skill for sure, but being able to hear your environment better could give you an edge in battle so to speak.

Amazon Echo Review

Recently I was sent an Amazon Echo for review and you may have seen the adverts on TV recently where people are talking to the Echo in order to get it to add items to a shopping list or play music. Well in basic terms this is sort of what the Echo can be used for, but in reality it's just the starting point really as the Echo is more like James Cameron's vision of the future (Skynet), only less sinister and dangerous! 

iPhone 6s Plus Review

I've recently reviewed the iPhone SE and last year I took a look at the iPhone 6S. I’m also due to get in an iPhone 7 to review shortly. However in the meantime I managed to source in an iPhone 6s Plus from Vodafone, primarily as I needed a 4K camera to help me take footage of my Hisense 4K TV (for a separate feature).

One For All: Smart Control 5 Review

Early this year I had the chance to test out the Universal One For All Smart Control remote which allowed you to setup and control up to 8 devices on the one remote. Apart from a few learning curves and niggles with the Bluetooth App the Universal remote part worked really well and now instead of having multiple remote controls I only have the one. However in this review I take a look at the latest remote control from the company i.e. The Smart Control 5 and while it obviously supports less devices i.e. 5, it does feature a NETTV dedicated button that interested me....

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review

I’m late to the party reviewing Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but in all honesty I was focusing on getting 100% and was selfishly enjoying playing it, but as I managed to bank the 100% record  recently I wanted to let you know my thoughts on matters. At the end of the day if you haven’t jumped on the band wagon yet it’s certainly a title worth getting hold of, especially if you loved the previous Lego outings!

Gears of War 4 Review

I only got into the original Gears of War back in 2008 and since then I've pretty much played all flavours, including the Ultimate Edition remastered version. So it was a dead cert that at some point I would grab a copy of the latest outing.

TONOR BM-700 XRL to 3.5mm Condenser Microphone Review

I was looking at a microphone setup to improve the quality of my YouTube videos as there was an inconstancy to the levels and output quality. My budget was tight so I decided to opt for a Toner XRL to 3.5mm kit from Amazon, as at the time it was just over £20 and provided not just the microphone but also a host of other accessories to...

iPhone SE Review

One of the devices that is certainly overshadowed by the iPhone 6 & iPhone 7 range has to be the iPhone SE which is basically a special edition version of the iPhone 5s.
