Acer Predator Triton 500 SE Review – Flagship laptop gaming performance in a subtle style

This year Acer has launched two special edition laptops with slightly different form factors than the generic 15.6″ and 17″ they typically use. The Acer Predator Triton 300 SE was their first foray into the smaller format 14-inch gaming laptop niche, a category that doesn’t have much competition, and I loved it. The Triton 500 … Read more

Adidas RPT-01 Sports On-Ear Headphones Review – Washable ear pads make these the best on-ear headphones for serious fitness

Adidas are not a brand you would typically associate with headphones, but as a sports brand, they have started to venture into sports focussed headphones.   The Adidas RPT-01 are a unique looking pair of over-the-head headphones, which is not particularly a style I would associate with sports. However, I have enjoyed using them and … Read more

Polar Verity Sense Review – Not much change vs OH1 but still the best optical heart rate monitor

I reviewed the Polar OH1 optical heart rate monitor back in 2018 and have continued to use it until this year when the Polar Sense Verity was launched.

FS, formerly Fiber Store, has quickly grown expanding into producing their own networking hardware including switches, access points and even video conferencing solutions.

Powr labs Chest & Optical Armband Hear Rate Monitor Review – Good alternative options vs Wahoo, Polar & Garmin

Anyone half-serious about fitness will know that the optical heart rate monitoring on watches is prone to serious inaccuracies.

Inventor Magic 12000BTU Portable Air Conditioner Review – An effective air conditioning unit even with the hassle of UK uPVC windows

This year I finally caved and bought a portable air conditioner. Ideally, I’d like a multi-split air conditioner, but that requires someone it install it, and ideally when I finally get my loft converted.

Huwder A2002 150W PD Charger Review – A bargain power delivery charger with up to 100W on a single USB-C port

Huwder is not a company I have heard of before, and they don’t have any presence on Amazon UK. I was a little bit sceptical of their attractively priced and very high spec USB chargers when they approached me for a review. I was, therefore, left pleasantly surprised when this turned out to be a … Read more
