Amazon Fire TV Stick Comparison 2020 – Differences between 3rd Gen Fire TV Stick vs Lite vs 4K and Fire TV Cube – Specifications Compared

Amazon Fire TV devices have been some of my favourite tech products in recent years.

With the launch of the Fire TV Stick Lite, you now have options starting at £30, going up to £50 for the 4K model, or if you want to go all out the Cube is £110.

Huawei Freebuds Pro Review – Are these the best ANC earphones? And how do they compare to the Freebuds 3?

During the Huawei developer conference most people were hoping for a Huawei Mate 40 announcement, at least the Kirin 9000 launch. However, these are sadly delayed, so Huawei appeased our needs with the launch of the Huawei Freebuds Pro, Huawei Watch GT Pro, and a refresh of their laptops. I reviewed the Freebuds 3 last year, while I am not a fan of the open fit design, I did love them (when pair with eartips), and have continued to use them throughout 2020. So how much of an improvement are the Huawei Freebuds Pro? Huawei Freebuds Pro White +...

GooDee YG620 Native 1080P Full HD Projector Review – Full-sized projector for a superior image vs pico and mini

I have reviewed a few projectors this year, most of them being mini or pico projectors. The GooDee YG620 is not one of them. This is a normal-sized projector, not being particularly portable at all. However, unlike the bag friendly pico projectors, opting for something larger gives you significantly better image quality and brightness.

The cable doesn’t make these affordable earphones either, priced at £125 they cost more than the superb Creative Aurvana Trio Wireless I reviewed recently. Super X-Fi However, these are not your average pair of earphones, wired or not.

Bluesound Pulse MINI 2i multi-room speaker Review – A high-res audio Sonos Play:5 alternative

Sonos may dominate the world of multiroom streaming speakers, but they are not necessarily the best all round.

Huawei Sound X Review – Devialet Bluetooth speaker collab for room-filling audio but no smart technology or streaming

During the Huawei Mate 30 launch, the Huawei Speaker X was announced, a smart speaker co-developed by French brand famed for their high-end ultra-powerful Phantom speakers. At the time it was announced with December 2019 availability, however, for people in Europe and the UK it sort of fizzled out with no word on if or when it will be launched.

To sweeten the deal, if you buy it before the end of August, Huawei will...

Creative Aurvana Trio Wireless Earphones Review – Triple driver aptX HD & Low Latancy earphones that compete with 1MORE

Creative launched the Aurvana Trio earphones back in 2018 offering high-end features such as a triple driver design and detachable MMCX at an affordable sub-£100 price point.

Creative BT-W3 Review Bluetooth Audio Transmitter for PS4. Switch & PC with aptX Low Latency and AptXHD

If you wear a headset while gaming, wireless options are the way to go, avoiding long wires getting in your way. The problem is that some consoles, such as the Nintendo Switch, don't natively support them. Then with Bluetooth, you introduce latency which can cause sounds to be out of sync with what is happening on the display. Latency issues are also particularly annoying when watching movies or TV on headphones, causing lip-syncing issues. The Creative BT-W3 aims to solve these problems acting as a Bluetooth transmitter that supports 4 different codecs: aptX LL, aptX HD, aptX, and SBC....
