The TDK MP100 headphones stood out to me for several reasons. They’re cheap (really, really cheap) and seem to offer a good level of comfort with on-ear pads. So I decided to get hold of a pair and give them a quick test to see if they’re worth pocket change they sell for. The MP100’s…

Samsung’s push for a phablet revolution seems to be working. Their most recent release, the Galaxy Note 3, has been the most successful launch of the series with over 10 million units shipped since launch two months ago. With Apple’s announcement of hundreds of millions of iPhones being shipped, it’s hard to see how well the phablet is working…

The internet supergiant Amazon has revealed that it is looking into giving customers the option of having their items delivered within an hour using drones.

This was most due to the incredibly quick development of ‘smart TVs’ which enabled us to view and stream media from external devices, networks and the internet. The Xenta HD Mini Media Player is simple. You plug it into your television using a HDMI…

Simply put; the Biostar NM70I-847 Motherboard is superb. It’s a fantastic motherboard for anyone looking to build a PC for the first time with ample space for expansion, lots of power and most importantly: very good value for money. Biostar is by no means the most popular motherboard and component manufacturer out there. They are…

For me, San Andreas was my favourite. The vastness of the map, customization abilities and depth of gameplay made it special. GTA IV was no…

Finding a speaker set with good sound, that looks good next to your monitor and gives you more freedom than a standard 3.5mm jack also comes at a price. But this problem has been wiped clean…
