When I was a kid, there was nothing I wanted more than an alarm clock radio. I eventually got one years later, finding one of those old flip clocks at a yard sale while I was at university. It eventually broke when I took it apart to see how it worked, and I’ve been without one ever since… until today!
This alarm clock radio from Aukey is much more advanced, with Bluetooth streaming, 40 FM radio presets, USB charging and a classic red-on-black LCD display. It retails for £34 or $50, and we’ve got one in to review today. Let’s get started!FeaturesAll-in-one clock radio and Bluetooth speaker Alarm gradually ascends in volume Snooze [...]

Today we’re looking at some of Lamptron’s FlexLights. We have two different varieties of the lights to test, both of which are intended to plug into your PC and add some exciting colour to the interior of your case. The Multi Simple allows you to set all of the LEDs on the strip to a single colour, while Multi Programmable allows for more fine-grained effects.

There are two different configurations at play here: an ASUS Aura-compatible kit designed to be hooked up to a compatible motherboard, and a standalone kit [...]
While many cases these days come with their own built-in fan controllers, it’s also possible to get your own from third-party manufacturers like Lamptron. They’ve made their name with gorgeous controllers with tactile buttons and dials, but you can also get something a little bit more modern: a touch-screen fan controller. That’s the CM512, and we’re looking at it right now!Specs & FeaturesAll metal faceplate Intelligent temperature control Voltagecontrol TouchScreen Manualand Auto function Compatible with PWM fans and stardard fansDesign

If you want to dominate in playing online video games, there are a couple of essential components: a fast monitor, an accurate mouse and a flashy, tactile mechanical keyboard. After that, what more can you do? Of course, there’s a whole lot of other parts to your setup that can be upgraded — and one emerging trend, at least in the meta-humour of the /r/globaloffensive subreddit, is choosing the perfect gaming chair.
Of course, getting a gaming chair doesn’t actually give you much of an advantage in game. It’s not going to make it easier to hear tip-toeing enemies, give you Scream-like accuracy to dispatch a foe with a single mouse click or just play [...]
Today we’re looking at the EgoIggo, a Smart TV box that runs Android 6.0. The box is relatively powerful, with a quad-core Cortex A53 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, two USB ports and Micro SD expansion. It also comes with everything you need to make it work: the box itself, power and HDMI cables and a remote. Let’s take a closer look in our rapid review.Design
The EgoIggo is a simple and squat black box, with a cheerful identifying mark on its roof and little else. The front of the device contains the little IR window that allows the remote to work, so remember to place this somewhere the remote can see it.
On the back, [...]
