Canon EOS R6 II review: hybrid just got better

Two-minute review If you’re buying into Canon’s EOS R mirrorless system, you might well be weighing the do-it-all EOS R6 II against the more expensive and high-powered EOS R5. Plenty chose the original EOS R6 for its price, low-light capability, burst shooting and video features, and the R6 II removes one remaining barrier – the original model’s 20MP resolution.  The Mark II’s resolution increase will may not make much difference to the detail rendition, but it’s an important psychological bonus which puts the Canon on a par with rivals like…

Evercade EXP review: an accessible handheld for budding retro collectors

If the Evercade EXP succeeds on just one thing, it’s in filling a fascinating – yet nonetheless gaping – hole in the handheld console market. Much like other Evercade devices, the EXP stores the vast majority of its retro-focused library on physical cartridges sold separately from the handheld itself. The Evercade EXP is much more than its gimmick would suggest, though. Yes, its library and target audience is niche, but it’s such an impressive piece of hardware that it demands to be in the conversation of what the best handheld…

Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti review: the next-gen Nvidia card for the rest of us

Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti: Two-minute review The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti came onto the scene needing to score a real win if Team GReen had any hope of reigning in a resurgent AMD, and this is exactly the right graphics card to do that. The RTX 4070 Ti isn’t the best graphics card Nvidia’s ever put out, and its launch has been somewhat overshadowed by the major stumbles Nvidia has made since Jensen Huang first announced the Nvidia Lovelace launch lineup back in September — which was really…

Suunto 9 Peak Pro review

The Suunto 9 Peak Pro has been given a powerful upgrade internally when compared to its almost identical-looking predecessor, the Suunto 9 Peak. There’s a new processor, new GPS, new optical heart rate sensor, and way more battery life. In terms of looks, though, not much has changed aside from a slimmer 10.8mm thick chassis and lighter 64g weight.  The biggest drawback here is the fact that Suunto decided not to upgrade the watch’s screen. Measuring 1.2 inches, the monochrome sapphire crystal display has a relatively low 240 x 240…

Sivga Oriole review: great-value wired headphones with a gorgeous wood finish

Sivga Oriole review: One-minute review Even audiophiles are unlikely to have heard of Sivga. Established in China in 2016, Sivga’s full range of earphones and headphones have quickly proven to be more stylish than most alternatives. Best of all, as the Sivga Oriole over-ear headphones demonstrate, the sound quality is remarkably good for the price. They’re a veritable checklist of covetable features and sound quality at only $199/£219 (about AU$390). The Sivga Oriole headphones boast 50mm drivers that sound great. Clear and detailed music easily comes through these headphones, no…

DualSense Wireless Controller review

Dualsense Controller – One-minute review  The DualSense is not only the best controller Sony has ever put its name to, but that rare gaming input device that manages to feel genuinely innovative. Better still, you’ll get the DualSense controller with every PlayStation 5 console as standard.  A pleasingly sturdier beast than its predecessor, the DualSense outshines the PS4’s DualShock 4 in every conceivable way, finally giving PlayStation owners a controller that rivals Xbox’s offerings. It would, of course, be remiss to talk about the PS5 controller without mentioning its killer…

BolehVPN review

When you’re protecting your identity and information online, you need the best VPNs to keep activities safe, secure, and secret.  One popular use is, of course, using a VPN to block geo-restricted content on platforms like Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and BBC iPlayer  – little wonder, then, that we’ve seen a rise in Netflix VPNs and streaming VPNs.   The privacy tools are also useful for protecting IP addresses when downloading torrents. VPNs for torrenting prevent your ISP monitoring what you’re downloading.  When looking for a VPN (even a free VPN),…
