Motorola Razr review: A fashion statement, not a flagship

The Motorola Razr is many things. It's one of the first foldable phones you can buy right now. It's a feat of engineering from a storied mobile brand. It's a Verizon exclusive. (Sigh.) What the Razr absolutely isn't, though, is practical. For so...

Olympus E-M1 III review: Fast, but way behind flagship camera rivals

JLab Go Air review: These $29 wireless earbuds are surprisingly decent

For better or worse, we assign quality to things based on how much they cost. If the best true wireless earbuds you can buy are $230, surely an alternative priced for less than $30 isn't worth your time, right? Wrong. While it may have been true in t...

Sony A6100 review: Incredible autofocus performance for a budget camera

Despite all the talk about full-frame mirrorless cameras lately, APS-C is still extremely important for Sony. The A6000 in particular was a huge hit, thanks to the combination of good performance, features, compact size and price. The 24.2-megap...

BMW’s plug-in hybrid 745e delivers tech and luxury at a price

HP Spectre x360 13-inch review: Stylish, powerful and flexible

Audio-Technica ATH-CKS5TW review: Long battery life at a decent price

Nikon Z50 review: A great handling camera with a mediocre sensor

Today's camera landscape is ultra-competitive and not terribly lucrative, so it takes a lot of guts to launch a new system. Nikon has done that (again) with the 20.9-megapixel Z50, its first ever APS-C mirrorless camera. Unlike rival Canon, Nikon...

Skydio 2 review: The best self-flying drone is now a great all-rounder

Around a year and a half ago, Skydio blew my mind. The then-unknown company presented the R1 drone to the world, and it was quite special. Typically, follow features and obstacle avoidance aren't very effective, or only work in certain modes (i.e. wi...

Master & Dynamic MW07 Plus review: Improved, but still pricey

In 2018, Master & Dynamic joined the true wireless fray. The company had been making headphones for years, including a number of wireless models, but it had yet to jump on the latest earbud bandwagon. With the MW07, M&D was able to bring its...

LG Gram 17 review: The oversized thin-and-light no one asked for

Apple's MacBook Pro 16-inch may be big, but there's a bigger laptop in town. Okay, so there are plenty of bigger laptops around, but the LG Gram 17 is not only larger, but it's also much lighter. It offers a gorgeous, gigantic 17-inch screen that you...
