Hands-on review: Edifier Spinnaker e30 Multimedia Speakers

Speaker designs tend to follow function over form. Sure, you can get them in hipster-friendly wooden boxes or, if so inclined, a more industrial metallic finish, but they still all look like speakers.

Browsing through the Edifier website in order to take up their offer of reviewing “whatever you like”, the e30 Spinnaker speakers really stood out. Whilst there’s no mistaking that they are speakers, they are not trying to be a vase or some sort of modernist art piece, but they do look rather striking.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi review

The answer is, for the most part, yes. Continue reading Star Wars: The Last Jedi review

Hands-on review: D-Link DSL-5300 Cobra AC 5300 Wave 2 Wi-Fi Modem Router

If I was reviewing this modem/router on looks alone it would get 11/10. The Cobra is, without a doubt the sexiest router I’ve ever seen.

With eight antennas, a funky triangular design, it’s unlike any bit of networking kit I’ve seen before. As I got it out of its (rather premium) packaging the device looked like an upturned robotic spider (similar to those replicators on Stargate: SG1).
