Oculus Rift review: The VR revolution begins here

By

Our first dalliances with virtual reality (VR) were with Virtuality, a system created by W. Industries back in the early 90s, and it blew our minds at the time. The graphics were basic and blurry, the headsets cumbersome and heavy, and a session with... >>

Audi TT RS review: A serious upgrade, with serious performance

By

Of all the Renn Sport models that Audi makes, the TT RS perhaps makes the most sense. At its basic level, the Audi TT is a sports car lite. That dropping roof and low-slung stance point to a sporty little coupé or roadster, even when it's a front-wheel... >>

Ford Focus RS first drive: The B-road baller

By

When was the last time you truly felt alive? Today more than ever, it is perhaps the experiences we have - and the moments when we feel a sense of risk, jeopardy, fear, exhilaration or just sheer joy - that make us truly wide-eyed. Which brings us to... >>

Netflix review: The leading light in home entertainment

By

Netflix needs no introduction. The company quickly gained momentum in the US with its DVD rental service that evolved into video streaming on demand, before spreading its wings to the UK in 2012. So impressive has the rise of Netflix been, that it's become... >>

Citroen Grand C4 Picasso review: Carting the kids around couldn't be more cool

By

With SUVs flying off forecourts and onto driveways at a pace that doesn't match their often-sluggish performance, the MPV class is seen as the wallowing hinterland of modern cars.  It's where you end up when you've expanded your family beyond an estate... >>

Sony MDR-1000X review: Quite simply phenomenal noise-cancelling headphones

Sony's mission to deliver its best noise-cancelling headphones has lead to the birth of the MDR-1000X. It's a solid name, for a solid pair of noise-cancelling headphones. The MDR-1000X set their sights on the lucrative wireless noise-cancelling segment... >>

Hisense 75M7900 4K TV review: Budget sense, but HDR nonsense

By

The 10-inch difference between a 65-inch TV and a 75-inch TV is more than just a measurement. It marks the difference - at least in any fairly regular-sized living room - between just watching television and stepping into the world of home cinema. Unfortunately... >>

Fitbit Charge 2 review: Taking charge

The Fitbit Charge HR was the fitness tracker to beat in 2015. It wasn't only one of the best from the company - which also makes the Surge, Blaze and Alta - but one of the best dedicated trackers with heart-rate monitoring from any manufacturer. And now... >>

TomTom Spark 3 review: Getting better with age

By
