Plugable USB-C Quad HDMI Docking Station review – One wire connects it all!

  REVIEW – It seems like everyone is working from home these days! If your employer is like mine, they give you a laptop, but the rest of the WFH kit is up to you. Working all day on a 15 inch laptop screen might be OK for some, but most crave a bit more …

Turbro Greenland 14,000 BTU portable air conditioner and heater review – An all-in-one that’s easy to use!

REVIEW – Our house was built in 1877.  So of course, it was not built with air conditioning.  It also was not built with any ducts or vents, so it would be next to impossible to install central air.  In our little mountain town, air conditioning is not often needed.  If it gets above 90 …

Lairlux Percussion Massage Gun review – Lets you overdo your workouts without overdoing your wallet

REVIEW – Sports and exercise are known for fads.  One big fad right now has to do with recovery from exercise, and specifically, for when you overdo it. If you follow the trends, sore muscles can now be relieved by everything from oddly-shaped foam rollers to percussive massagers, which use a combination of vibration and …

EZQuest UltimatePower 120W GaN USB-C PD wall charger review – One charger to rule them all!

REVIEW – When I travel, I usually take a well-organized bag of chargers, adapters, and cords with me.  This bag used to be quite large and heavy, as each device usually needed its own charger, cord, and an adapter to make it work with any other device.  But now USB-C is becoming the norm.  Most …

Amzchef 2 Burner Induction Cooktop review – Cooking with magnets!

REVIEW – I grew up with a gas range and have installed them in almost every house I’ve lived in.  It was a selling point in our current house. It’s familiar and easy, and I like cooking with gas.  The heat is steady, instant-on and instant-off, and you can see what’s happening just by peeping …

Center Cam webcam review – Looking people in the eye in video meetings is no longer awkward!

REVIEW – I have a lot of video meetings.  Several a day. I know how important eye contact is, and it’s even more important when everyone is remote.  So I tend to stare at the camera, positioned as it usually is at the top of my large monitor.  But this means that I’m not looking …

Ollny LED 80ft warm white solar string lights review – affordable easy ambiance

REVIEW – Fairy lights are all the rage.  You see them as backgrounds in Zoom meetings, in photos of Instragram-worthy patio shots, in catalogs of all types, in movies, and on just about every Pintrest board.  But not all fairy lights are created equal.  This is especially true for solar fairy lights.  Despite the low …

LEVOIT Vortex IQ 40 cordless stick vacuum review – the easiest vacuum I’ve ever used!

REVIEW – A cordless stick vac was not something I thought I’d ever need.  We have a LIDAR-guided robot vacuum that handles the task a few times a week, a more traditional upright vacuum for deep cleaning, and an older corded hand-held vacuum for spot cleaning.  So when the opportunity to review the Levoit cordless …

OutdoorMaster Gem Recreational MIPS Cycling Helmet review – an incredible value you hope you never need.

REVIEW – A few months ago, I had my worst crash ever in 25 years of riding and racing bicycles.  I was riding some dirt roads in North Carolina and hit a large root hidden by leaves.  The front of the bike stopped, but I didn’t. Going about 20 mph, I flew like superman head-first …

Hohem iSteady Q gimbal review – Well built, great value, but do you need it?

REVIEW –  It usually seems like a great idea to increase value by taking several products and building them into a single innovative and well-constructed package, which is what the Hohem iSteady Q gimbal is.  It does what it does very well.  But in my experience with it, I kept coming back to the same …

REVIEW – It might not seem like much to plug your phone into the car to access Android Auto each time you get in for a trip, but a few days with the Motorola MA1 Wireless Android Auto Car Adapter will change your mind. What is it? If you’ve bought or rented a new car …
