GOgroove SonaVERSE LBr 2.1 USB Speaker Review

The GOgroove SonaVERSE LBr 2.1 USB Speakers are a cheap micro speaker system that is available on Amazon for just £28.29. Powered by USB these are not going to be the loudest speakers on the market. The sub is rated at 5W and the satellites at 3w. Due to the low powered nature of them everything about them is quite petite. The sub is just 13.3 x 15.2 x 17.1cm and the satellites just 7 x 7.1 x 7.1cm. Build quality is as you would expect for a sub £30 speaker. It’s not dreadful, but it is very plasticky...

The 2 primary speakers are relatively small and quite attractive, but they do feel quite light. Each satellite features a tweeter unit...

We heard about Google Home at the annual I/O developer conference, it is basically a smart spear in direct competition to the Amazon Echo.

Good news is, that the reported price is going to be just $130 which is $50 less than the Amazon Echo. Obviously, this won’t convert nicely over to the UK, but I would expect it to be around £130, which is still...

BT 9500 Halo Review – Call Blocking Cordless Home Phone with Bluetooth

I have to admit, I don’t currently use a home phone anymore, and I think this is a growing trend. However, BT built their business around land lines and there is still a large number of people that use them. In which case the BT 9500 Halo phone might be the ultimate home phone. One of the main features of BT’s recent phones is the call blocking, and the previous generation, the BT8500 has generally been lauded for this feature. The Halo keeps this feature but brings a new much more modern design, and adds a whole host of new...
