Eufy Security Review: Smart Wireless Home Security

eufy home security cameras
I've had a lot of jobs in my life. One of them is the hallmark job of a man who's had a lot of jobs; door-to-door salesman. I sold house alarms, or as I would tell people "I'm selling peace of mind". Yeah, I'm not proud of that chapter in my life, but it did give me quite a...

DJI Mavic Mini Review: A Somewhat Affordable Gateway Drone

dji mavic mini ireland
Last week I finally ticked something off my tech bucket list. Well, actually two things. Fly a drone Buy a drone These two things went nice and hand in hand because of the new DJI Mavic Mini being very fairly priced. Wintery weather took a brief break last week and quick as a flash, I was out in Sandymount to...

Huawei FreeBuds 3i Review: €99 For Excellence

I was a driven anti-AirPod guy. I was against everything they stood for. The death of the headphone jack, the commercial monster that is Apple and the style of them. Everything irked me. Then, I realised it was time to say goodbye to the headphone jack. Apple actually builds some pretty great products. And the design of AirPods means...

Smart Helmet Review: Livall BH51M Neo Packed With Features

livall BH51 NEO review
It's a bit of a cliche but cycling is going through a bit of a golden age in Ireland right now. People are flooding to bikes to avoid public transport. It's nothing but great news and I've been keeping my eye on some tech for cyclists. In the coming weeks, I'll be checking out a few bits and pieces....

Enod Audio Wireless Earbuds Review: Incredible Sound and Value

enod audio wireless mini ring
You'd think that being close to technology and playing with gadgets all the time would lead to it all becoming a little stagnant. Yet I'm still taken aback by how fast technology moves on a regular basis. Last year, just after testing the Sony WH-1000MX2, and being mighty impressed by them, I bought the Sony WF-1000X. Great sound quality, but...

LIFX Beam Review: Actual Smart Lights

LIFX beam review
For years, I've liked the potential of smart lights. Like, they should be awesome but using your phone to turn on and off a light is a bit crap. You've got to be smart about how you use your smart light. Honestly, this review gets easier to understand as we go. I've been testing out the LIFX range of...

U-Mask Review: Comfy Reusable Mask For Long Term Wear

u-mask review
I was in Seoul last year and I saw people wearing masks regularly as they commuted. It was a foreign concept to me. The air and indeed the subway seemed clean to me. I looked into it and discovered in Asian countries masks do more than just protect others. They are a symbol that the wearer understands there is...

PlayStation 5 Console Review: Too Little Of A Good Thing?

playstation 5 review
The PlayStation 5 is finally here! Well, kind of. A shortage of stock on launch day has meant that, for a lot of people, the next generation of console gaming is still some time away. However, Sony has confirmed that more units will reach Irish shores before Christmas. Tesco has already started calling people who missed out on the...

Google Pixel 5 Review: Pure Android Class

pixel 5 review
I've put myself into a bit of a technological experiment for the last few months. I tested out the Huawei P40 Pro and went all-in on the experience. Because the phone doesn't support Google Apps, I started to live without Google. I really mean it, right down to the search engine I use daily. I thought it went quite...

OnePlus 5 Review: OnePlus 5 Equals Mobile Happiness

Having lived with the new OnePlus 5 for a month now, I feel I'm ready to give it a proper no holds barred review. Like many others, for years I've been a slave to two mobile devices; one for work, one for personal use. Working in the telecoms industry for the last 19 years and the nature of the...
