LG UltraFine Display 24MD4KL review

LG UltraFine Display 24MD4KL “LG’s UltraFine is only for hardcore Mac fans, but they’ll love it.” Color accurate panel optimized for creative workflows Lots of ports that are easily accessible Versatile mounting options No legacy ports, lacks Windows support Thick bezels are clunky MSRP $ 699.95 Using monitor buttons feels like traveling back in time.

Fitbit Ace 2 review

There are dozens of fitness trackers for adults, but only a few for kids, especially ones from established brands like Fitbit. The Ace 2 is here to fill that gap. It’s $ 70 and replaces the original Ace which was praised for its kid-friendly design, but fell short in some areas like waterproofing. Fitbit has listened […]

Insta360 One X review

In the theater of immersive imaging lives a cast of quirky characters, products of every shape and size. The threat of death looms every one of them; none are safe — even GoPro couldn’t produce a hero. The shaky first act feels cobbled together without a script, an incoherent improv that sees every player momentarily […]

I was on my way to photograph landscapes on San Juan Island, but the pictures […]

Vuze XR 360-degree camera review

While the 360-degree video category launched with much fanfare, the nascent technology soon met a hard reality — most of the time, capturing everything around you isn’t better. An emerging trend in the 360 segment lets you crop that immersive perspective into a traditional flat, or fixed-frame, video, using the extra angle of view to […]

Acer Swift 3 13 (2019) review

We took a long look at Acer’s Swift 3 with a 14-inch display, and we liked its combination of performance, battery life, and attractive pricing. Acer added another model to its 2019 Swift 3 lineup, a 13.3-inch version that looks a lot like its larger sibling and that also comes in at an attractive price point. […]
