Audi S1 review: Super supermini

By 19 hours ago

The Audi S1 is the baby of the German manufacturer's S family of sports models, but beefed-up to make it a super supermini. It takes this small hatchback from an appealing £14,000 to eyebrow-raising £24,000 and skywards, sailing over £30k for the model... >>

Grand Theft Auto 5 review: Bona fide thrill ride on PS4 and Xbox One

By 24 November 2014

Grand Theft Auto 5 caused a stir when it was released more than a year ago, a stir that's all the more frenzied in its new-gen incarnation on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Why? Because now you can experience all the bloodshed, sleaze and profanity throughout... >>

iRobot Roomba 880 review: Cleans, so you don't have to

By 22 November 2014

Robot vacuum cleaners, such as the iRobot Roomba 880, are interesting little gadgets. They are far from cheap, costing the best part of £500, but for that mighty lump of cash they take one of the worst household chores off your hands. The idea behind... >>

TomTom Multi-Sport Cardio review: Six months in and we're sold

By 21 November 2014

The first TomTom Multi-Sport sportswatch was released around a year ago, catering for running, cycling and swimming activities. It did a fair job, but there were some loose ends that its follow-up, the Multi-Sport Cardio, tackles head-on. We've been using... >>

Nest Learning Thermostat review: Intelligent home heating never looked better

By 20 November 2014

We've come to review Nest, the smart thermostat, in a bit of a backwards way. Installed at the height of the British summer (if such a thing actually exists?) at the end of July, we've not been using the central heating at home until within the last month.... >>
