    Evesham SoundStage X2 review

    By 19 October 2007

    Earlier this year Evesham revealed a rather enigmatic experiment with home cinema audio in the form of the SoundStage X1, a chunky TV stand that housed a range of built-in speakers. After being rather abruptly discontinued, the technology is back in the...

    Evesham ebox HD media centre PC review

    By 11 October 2007

    We have always liked the ebox series of media centre PCs from Evesham because they perform as good as they look and don’t cost the earth. Even the fact that Evesham Technology went into administration a couple of months back does not dampen our enthusiasm....

    Evesham TV-930 portable LCD television review

    By 18 May 2007

    This small, 240 x 172 x 33mm with a visible display area of 199 x 119mm, 16:9 ratio LCD television weighs in at less than 1kg making it truly portable unlike most portable tellies. Although we will come back to the question of real world portability in...

    Evesham iPlayer HD Freeview PVR review

    By 31 January 2007

    The concept is simple enough, one set-top box that does pretty much everything you could want now and for the foreseeable future. Everything, in the case of the Evesham iPlayer, means rather a lot. How about a Freeview box with 80GB hard drive for personal...

    Evesham Mini PC review

    By 2 November 2006

    When we first took delivery of this we have to admit there were a few scratched heads, as we were expecting a Media Center PC from Evesham but the courier had left us a package smaller than a shoebox. Surely some mistake, a thought that continued right...

    Verballs telephone gadget review

    By 21 September 2006

    Novelty telephones are nothing new, when I was a kid we had a Mickey Mouse one (both in physical form and metaphorically speaking) and more recently my daughter inherited a handset in the shape of "Tigger" who jumps up and down when a call comes in. Novelty...

    Evesham NavCam 7500TMC GPS receiver review

    By 28 July 2006

    The NavCam 7500 uses Navigator 2006 software provided by the those very nice men at the AA. As well as the usual 2D and 3D mapping, the voice alerts, and full seven digit postcode searching, this brings one unexpected delight to drivers of older bangers:...

    Evesham eBox 3 Media Center review

    By 14 July 2006

    Media Centre PCs are not uncommon, but by the same token there has never been anything vaguely common about the Evesham eBox range. It can genuinely lay claim to being the original sleek, non-PC looking, designed to fit into your living room PC. Now it’s...

    Navigon BlueMedia Personal Navigation Assistant 150 review

    By 24 February 2005

    While some manufacturers will want you to believe otherwise, satellite navigation systems for the car are still expensive. With most weighing in at over £500 it's refreshing to see the Navigon BlueMedia PNA unit priced at just under £400. But does the...
