Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galaxy Z Flip6 Review: Refined Folds

The Fold6, despite the slightly larger 4,400-mAh battery cell, has considerably more screen to power, so my battery experience has been roughly the same. A full day with average use (maybe a bit extra) or heavier use (aka watching lots of Instagram reels) will likely require a top-up by the evening, especially if you use […]

ViewSonic 27-Inch OLED Gaming Monitor Review: Better Than Budget

When I think of high-end gaming monitors, ViewSonic isn’t exactly the first brand that comes to mind, but the XG272-2K-OLED might get me to change my mind. The OLED panel is surprisingly crisp and vibrant, the rotating stand is easily one of my favorite features, and its refresh rate is high enough for some of

Lenovo Yoga Slim 7x Copilot+ PC Review: Great Price to Performance

Performance is strictly middle-of-the-road, and the Yoga Slim 7x turned in average scores among the five Copilot+ PCs I’ve tested to date, on both general CPU-intensive applications and graphics-heavy tests, though I did achieve an oddly outlying high score on the Cinebench 2024 image-rendering benchmark I couldn’t readily explain. A curious result, but I won’t

NZXT Function 2 Review: Iterative Improvements on a Beginner’s Board

When I tried gaming PC giant NZXT’s first foray into the mechanical keyboard space, the Function (8/10, WIRED Recommends), I was impressed at how thoughtful and beginner-friendly it was. It had useful features that left a good impression as a first product in the space. Its successor, the Function 2, is all about refining the

Moog Labyrinth Review: A New Way to Sequence

I love the sound of a classic Moog as much as anyone, but I think its most interesting current instruments are its lineup of desktop semi-modular synths. The Mother-32, DFAM, Subharmonicon, and Spectravox often include some traditional Moog DNA but with a more experimental approach. They’re designed to be explored and prodded, not just played.

Bose SoundLink Max Bluetooth Speaker Review: Price, Specs, Availability

In 1968, just four years after he founded his eponymous company, Amar Bose published a paper titled “On the Design, Measurement and Evaluation of Loudspeakers.” It argued that the listener’s subjective perception, rather than any technical measurement, is the most effective way to assess sound reproduction. It might have been the first time Bose (as

Open Bionics Hero Gauntlet Prosthetic Review: Price, Specs, Availability

As someone who was shoved into prosthetics before they were old enough to say “Get it off,” I was intrigued when the superhero-style, 3D-printed prosthetic limb known as the Hero Arm launched back in 2018. It was definitely exciting if you were a kid who wanted to be a superhero. I was hopeful that, after

Clevetura CLVX 1 Review: I Love This Keyboard-Touchpad Hybrid

I have an almost irrational desire to avoid moving my hand from my keyboard to my mouse if I can avoid it. The minor interruption is an inefficiency that bothers me. I’ve spent more time than I care to admit counting exactly how many times I have to press tab to navigate menus and learning

Motorola Razr+ and Razr (2024) Review: Polished Folding Flips

Motorola has finally matched its peers with an IPX8 rating on the new Razrs. This means these phones will be fine if you accidentally submerge them in water or use them in the rain, though the “X” indicates it’s still not rated for dust protection. To that end, Motorola’s hinge mechanism is 30 percent smaller
