  • Feet-on with the VholdR ContourHD

    Here it is, action sport stars, some real POV footage taken with the VholdR ContourHD instead of the garbage office tour I took earlier in the week. Turn down the volume on your speakers! I’ve included the video that’s currently live on VholdR’s site and YouTube for the full HD video. Read More

  • Our iPhone 3G S review: You can't haz it

    It’s not here. We’re not big enough to get one in the first wave of releases and we clearly haven’t “gone native” with the PR persons involved. We’ll have a thorough and intelligent review up after the weekend. Until then, enjoy the above video of Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton. For a great examination of this situation by a site that we should all respect… Read More

  • Review: Samsung SMX-F34 flash memory camcorder

    Short Version: Samsung has put out another well-priced, nicely-featured camcorder in the SMX-F34. If you’re looking for a little more than a simple handheld flash memory camcorder but don’t want to pay top dollar for a high-definition video camera, this model deserves a closer look thanks to marathon battery life, good image quality, 16GB of built-in storage, and a 34x optical zoom… Read More

  • Review: Maingear PC X-Cube 3D

    Boutique PC companies have it rough these days, unless they come up with something truly original or compelling, it’s extremely difficult to fight against the bargain brands. However, for those willing to spend a few extra dollars, some amazing machines are out there. One such brand is MainGear PC, one of the relative newcomers to the game. Maingear recently sent us one of their X-Cube… Read More

  • Video Review: Hillcrest Labs Loop Pointer

    Sure you’ve seen wireless 3D mice but have you seen one shaped like a loop? No, you haven’t. That’s why there’s the Hillcrest Labs Loop Pointer, a loop-shaped remote control that costs $99 and promises compatibility with Macs, PCs, and the PS3. It’s obviously great for presenters but they’re also billing this as a media center controller. It was fairly… Read More

  • Hands-on: Chrome Corsair and Vega utility bags


    We jumped on the chance to take a look at two of Chrome’s newest bags: the Corsair and Vega. As Peter Ha told me, Chrome is one of the last true makers of messenger bags. He is rarely right about anything, but this time he was dead-on. These bags are rad. Read More

  • Review: JBL Roxy reference 430 & 250 headphones

    “Aww, those are so cute!” says my wife as I took the new JBL Roxy headphones out of the shipping box. Me? I could not care less how my gadgets look, as long as they work well. But my wife instantly reminded me that looks are more important to some, so I came up with the idea to send the headphones to high school with my little sister-in-law for some teenager hands-on.

  • Review: HUGlight adjustable, wearable 4-LED flashlight

    Short Version: The HUGlight is a flexible foam rubber flashlight-type apparatus that can be worn around your neck. It can also be bent and positioned to illuminate hard-to-reach areas, making it more useful than just a simple wearable flashlight. Read More

  • Review: Nyko Wand for the Wii

    I’ll keep this review short and sweet, folks. If you’re looking for a second, third or even fourth Wiimote for your Wii then allow me to suggest picking up Nyko’s Wand. It’s priced $5 less than Nintendo’s Wii Remote and you’ll never know the difference when playing with your Wii Wii. It even comes with a blue condom! Read More

  • Review: Kindle DX

    Another month, another version of the Kindle. I’ve been using a Kindle since it was shaped like a very thin doorstop and I’m delighted each time I see a new version. The latest version is the DX, a monstrous 9-inch version of the smaller Kindle 2 that supports direct PDF reading without conversion. Why am I interested in the Kindle? Well, I already have a first-gen Kindle so… Read More

  • Review: Klipsch Image S4 headphones


    Several months ago, CrunchGear reviewed Klipsch’s X5 headphones, which I pronounced the best in-ear headphones I’d ever used. Unfortunately, they cost $250, which kind of puts them out of reach for most people (it would for me if I hadn’t been lucky enough to review them). But now Klipsch has expanded the Image line down to the sub-$100 level and I’ve been testing out… Read More

  • Review: Jabra SP200 Bluetooth speakerphone

    Short version: The Jabra SP200 is huge Bluetooth speakerphone with extra large controls and extra loud volume. Read More

  • Review: Logitech G19 keyboard


    The keyboard everyone in the world drooled over for months and months is out there on the market. It’s got its own LCD screen, it looks slick as hell, and it costs a mint. You know you want it, but should you really buy it? Read More

  • Review: DirectFix's iPhone LCD Repair Kit

    By Brian Bray John Biggs graciously gave his sister, my wife, an unlocked 3G iPhone for Christmas. My son, just over a year at the time, quickly realized this new piece of tech was competition for his Mom’s attention, so he sent it sailing off of our kitchen countertops onto a hard tile floor. The result was a short hairline fracture that turned into a long hairline fracture which… Read More

  • Review: Griffin Technology Clarifi iPhone Case

    I am the kind of guy who can appreciate damage. It is the way of things. Entropy is part of the natural order of events—an unstoppable phenomenon.  For some, it is hard to accept this after forking over $400 for a fancy Smartphone. I mean, you don’t want the thing getting all scratched up right?  You don’t want it subjected to the elements, right? You want it to look… Read More

  • Review: Tee Jaye's Barnyard Buster


    Picture from Pics of Breakfast Man alive. I just ate a Barnyard Buster at Tee Jaye’s Country Place in Columbus, Ohio and I’m not feeling so good. I’ve had these things before, being an Ohio native, but today might be my last one. What is a Barnyard Buster? It’s hash browns, two biscuits, eggs (any style), and sausage gravy. I think there’s bacon in there somewhere… Read More

  • Review: Slingcatcher


    This review comes from DemystifyingDigital.com and was written by Ted Kritsonis Sling Media’s Slingcatcher has been touted as the device that would give users the opposite benefit of the company’s popular Slingbox products. Rather than “placeshift” a TV signal to be viewed remotely on a computer, the Slingcatcher would allow a TV to display content from a computer. Read More

  • Review: At $9.94, Radica Golden Tee Golf is a pretty solid last-minute gift

    Last week I mentioned this Golden Tee Golf CrunchDeal and said that I’d even buy it for myself. Well you may have thought, “That Doug, he’s all talk — sitting up in his mansion atop a pile of free gadgets, he’d never stoop low enough to buy a plug-and-play TV game for ten bucks.” I’ll have you know that I did indeed purchase the game and I’m happy… Read More

  • Review: Ultrasone HFI-580 headphones

    You may have seen the review of Ultrasone’s mega-high-end Series 9 headphones the other day. Well, the company doesn’t just make $1600 cans; these HFI-580s represent the more affordable end of their product spectrum, and although they cost about 90% less, I’m thinking they probably sound 90% as good.
