David's Take: Blasting Your Expectations to Smithereens - The Sound BlasterX G6

If we step back in time to the ‘90s, there was nary a single PC that didn't use Sound Blaster soundcard. At the very least, they used a licensed (or not) Sound Blaster-compatible soundcard. Yes, Creative's Sound Blaster was THAT huge.

David's Take: Letsfit Smart Watch and T22 TWS - Cheap Only in Price

What comes to mind when you read the word "cheap?" You probably usually think "bad quality" or "poorly made." It's exactly what I thought when I received the Letsfit Smart Watch (product number IDL205) and the T22 TWS earbuds, which sell for US$49 and US$40, respectively. These weren't just affordable for what they were - they were downright cheap!

David's Take: Long Live Creative Outlier Gold

Since product review samples are a little more difficult to come by as a result of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, I have had to get creative. This week, while waiting for an official review sample to arrive from Creative Labs, I borrowed a new pair of Creative Outlier Gold true wireless earbuds my neighbour brought from Singapore.

Facebook Messenger for Kids: I Caved

Facebook Messenger for Kids: I Caved

I finally caved. I have been avoiding signing my 8-year-old son up for Facebook Messenger for Kids since the invites started rolling in ages ago. As much as I use and advocate for the benefits of social media, I don't think an 8-year-old needs to be on a Messenger service.

David's Take: AudioQuest DragonFly Red - Fly Like an Eagle

David's Take: AudioQuest DragonFly Red - Fly Like an Eagle

I'm a simple person. When I bought the AudioQuest DragonFly Red for $249, I bought it not because of the specifications but because of the colour. It turns out among the three options, Black, Red, and Cobalt, the Red is the mid-level, perfect choice.

David's Take: Feeling Fly with Creative SX-Fi

Recently, Creative Labs has been turning heads again with its Super X-Fi (SXFI - pronounced "sex-fy") headphone technology. At CES 2020, I was handed the SXFI Amp, a tiny dongle touted to recreate a surround-sound holographic environment with headphones.

David's Take: Taking A Glance at LG's NanoCell 65SM8100 UHD TV

It has been more than a year since the last time I looked at a new LG LCD TV. The last time I checked, the NanoCell TVs are pretty good for the money. But as you know me, I'm looking for a product that's a true performer.
