Boosty review: Banish broadband outage with this mini mobile-connected router

By

Ah, flaky broadband. The bane of first world existence. But, actually, a real pain in the backside when you're in the middle of a Skype call and it drops dead. Or you're streaming Game of Thrones and someone shuts the door (rather than, ahem, holds it)... >>

Philips AmbiLux PUS8901 review: Projector-laden 4K TV is mad, but brilliant

By

When we first clapped eyes on Philips AmbiLux, back in 2014, we thought the engineers responsible had lost the plot. Sure, we've always had a soft spot for Philips Ambilight, the LED edging that casts puddles of coloured light onto surrounding walls,... >>

OnePlus Loop VR headset preview: This is the free VR headset for the OnePlus 3 launch

By

When OnePlus said it was giving away free VR headsets, the internet blew up and soon stock had vanished. Fortunately we were at the front of the queue and now we've had our Loop VR headset delivered.  It would be selfish not to share, so here it is,... >>

Samsung KS7000 SUHD TV review: Serious performance for the price

By

Samsung has impressed with its line-up of SUHD televisions over the last year. For 2016, the message is about refinement, continuing the solid performance of the LED sets and pushing the message that this is now second-gen HDR (high dynamic range), the... >>

Audi A5 Coupé (2016) preview, in pictures: Flexing those German muscles

By

This is the new Audi A5 Coupé (well, actually you're feasting your eyes on the sportier S5 Coupé edition). Which, if you squint a little, could be considered as the German brand's version of the Ford Mustang. With some added pep. An apt arrival year,... >>

Ford Mustang GT Convertible review: Big, brutal, and now British

By
