Sony Xperia XA2 review

Sony’s Xperia mobile phones are classy devices and the Xperia XA2 is no exception. It’s not the best Xperia, and it is a bit chunky compared to its Samsung brethren, but it’s feature packed and feels, well, nice in the hand. Continue reading Sony Xperia XA2 review

Epson Workforce ET-16500 review

The Workforce ET-16500 A3 multi-function printer adds Epson’s EcoTank cartridge-free printing as an option for the small business/home office.

A3 printing is essential for most businesses. With the ET-16500 able to cope with printing and scanning up to A3+ sized paper, it’s unlikely that you’ll need a larger format printer for normal day-to-day operations. Continue reading Epson Workforce ET-16500 review

Detroit: Become Human PS4 review

The idea that our machines may soon become sentient is a popular one right now and the subject of the master of interactive storytelling, David Cage’s latest offering, Detroit: Become Human.

As with previous games from French outfit, Quantic Dreams, Detroit: Become Human is more interactive movie than straight video game. Anyone expecting any sort of action or deep RPG gameplay should look elsewhere. Continue reading Detroit: Become Human PS4 review

Take a trip to the Summerset Isles in The Elder Scrolls Online

Following on from last year’s Morrowind, the second full-blown expansion to Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls Online, Summerset, is now available.

The Elder Scrolls Online has gone from being a questionable folly, with Bethesda dipping their toes in a saturated MMORPG genre, to coming out on top with a beautiful, immersive addition to their Elder Scrolls mythos.

The huge continent of Tamriel gains another massive area to the south-east- the Summerset Isles. This the lush kingdom of the high elves, a far cry from the volcanic, dark elf realm of Morrowind. Continue reading Take a trip to the Summerset Isles in The Elder Scrolls Online

Xperia Ear Duo wireless open-ear stereo headset review

Sony’s Xperia Ear Duo kit turns what you think you want from a pair of premium wireless earbuds on its head.

Of late I seem to the go-to guy when it comes to wireless earbuds. Ironically, I usually like my audio loud and preferably via dirty great speakers. Stuffing dainty little bits of plastic in my ears isn’t really my cup of tea. Apart from worrying about the things failing out, unless they are plugged into a car battery, there’s no way I’m going to get my usual deafening audio levels.

The fact of the matter is that I need a lot more than music to sell me on the idea of wireless earbuds.

Hello Sony Xperia Ear Duo. Continue reading Xperia Ear Duo wireless open-ear stereo headset review
