Review: Turcom Cyberview Mini provides security, but with limitations

As the range of wireless home security systems broadens, the choices offered range from elaborate information centers that monitor the local environment to simple cameras designed for economy and ease of use. One example of the latter is the Turcom Cyberview Mini, which is a plug-and-play camera with an emphasis on fast setup and expandability. We plugged one in to see what it could do.Read More

Review: 2016 BMW 340i, the top of the 3 Series

The BMW 3 Series has long been the benchmark for the midsize luxury sedan market. Combining the best of German luxurious sports driving into one package, this has long been the sedan to beat. Although others are doing well, bringing some stiff competition, the 3 Series sees a few updates, especially to the top-end six-cylinder engine, that keep this Driving Machine out front.Read More

Review: Soaking up sunlight with the Solartab solar charger

Solar panels come in a variety of guises designed to appeal to consumers looking for greener, plug-free ways to fuel electronics on the go. Prominent among these is Solartab, a portable solar charger and back-up-battery that hit the market in 2015 following a Kickstarter campaign in which it raised more than double its funding goal. We spent some time in the sun to see whether it was up to the task of keeping our devices happy and powered.Read More

Review: Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless speaker

In an age of wireless speakers dominated by singing soda cans and the occasional light show, the Zeppelin Wireless from British audio firm Bowers & Wilkins keeps the focus refreshingly on the task at hand. The latest in the Zeppelin line takes what was previously a muscle-bound iPod dock, upgrades it, and delivers a top-tier speaker that just happens to be wireless. Let's take a listen.Read More

Review: Marshall’s Stockwell speaker is more glam than jam

From the top-of-the-line Woburn speaker to the experimental London smartphone, Marshall Headphones offers audio for everyone in a range of prices and power. It was only until recent that the Kilburn was the company's most portable speaker. With Marshall's latest release, users now have a backpack-friendly option for music on-the-go. We spent the past weeks rocking out with the Marshall Stockwell to see if big things still come in small packages.Read More

Review: Foscam's pan-and-tilt R2 security camera fills the blind spots

Security cameras can provide homeowners with a certain peace of mind and plug-and-play technology has made them easier to install, but a static camera is often difficult to site and has frustrating blind spots. Foscam's R2 wireless interior camera provides more flexibility with a motorized pan-and-tilt mount that can swivel to take in an entire area. We got hold of one along with the company's FI9900P outdoor camera to see what we could see.Read More

Review: Smart motorcycle headlight lights the way around corners

Standard low-beam motorcycle headlights are next to useless in dark corners, so this week we've been playing with an aftermarket gadget that sorts the problem out. J.W. Speaker's Model 8790 Adaptive Low Beam LED Headlight fires up additional angled lights as you lean your bike over, to fill in the blind spot you get when you're cornering in the dark, and hopefully a kick in the backside for manufacturers that have been selling us rubbish headlights for generations.Read More
