Review: Linksys EA7500 Dual-Band Smart Router

 Choosing a router sometimes isn’t easy, and one of the main reasons why is assessing how one might be better than another. Another reason is how the one you choose will improve or enhance your home network. The Linksys EA7500 is a smart router that doesn’t look as flashy as others on the market, but is still outfitted with high-end performance and some future-proofing in mind.

The ASUS ZenWatch 2 is a smartwatch that doesn't push the envelope against competitors; it keeps things simple which for some people is just what they want.

Review: Netgear Nighthawk X8 AC5300 router is a beast for those who need it

 Comparing a router to a muscle car probably wouldn’t seem like an apt analogy, but in the Nighthawk X8, Netgear has built a unit that is designed to roar with power. Outfitted with a variety of features and unique hardware connections, this is a router aimed at users who know their home networking situation and want to raise it to another level.

Review: LG G5 looks to change how smartphones work

In some respects, LG has nothing to lose. Quietly building momentum with the previous two flagship smartphone iterations, the G3 and G4, the G5 has turned the company’s previous efforts on their heads. Having embraced an all-metal body for the phone, the design philosophy swerves dramatically to make it modular, too. Not only is the battery removable, but the idea is to enhance the phone’s features with hardware add-ons.

New Roku Streaming Stick lets you use your phone or tablet for audio

Review: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

The Edge is back, this time with a ‘Galaxy S7’ coming before it, showing that Samsung is serious about pushing the notion that an edged display carries advantages. While aesthetically pleasing, the Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ were limited in what the edge displays could do. Too limiting, in fact, taking away any real practicality to them. The feature set has been given a boost with the Galaxy S7 Edge, along with a few other returning additions.

Review: Samsung Galaxy S7

Samsung may give a little more precedence to its edged displays, like that on the Galaxy S7 Edge, but the more traditional “flat” Galaxy S7 is another option. Simplifying things to two devices, Samsung has essentially boiled it down to a choice between going with the edge or not. The Galaxy S7 hasn’t been deprived of anything, sporting the same internal specs and overall performance as its edged counterpart, including the incremental additions and improvements.

Two New tablets from Samsung now available at Best Buy

Samsung has a new duo of tablets that are currently available now. These are updates to previous models, rather than a brand new series or line, and are designed to be entry-level models. The Galaxy Tab A and Tab E Lite are both similar designs—highly portable with slight variations in specs, and aimed at users who are looking for simplicity.
