D-Link DIR-X5460 - Faster, further, smarter

Written by Joanna Wieclaw on . Posted in Accessories

Read more: D-Link DIR-X5460 - Faster, further, smarterAfter years of living in a share house, in an apartment, with deteriorated copper wiring and having to begrudgingly share my already pitiful bandwidth with several others, I came to the sad realisation that I’d completely lost touch with all the more recent developments in router technology. So with finally having moved out into my own place, and having to replace our poorly functioning router, I decided it was time to familiarise myself with what progresses had been made in the field.

Read more: Brother P-Touch Cube Pro - One more thingLast week DRN posted our thoughts on the Brother P-Touch Cube Pro (PT-P910BT), a fantastic (although on the pricey side), 36mm label printer. At the time we got to test out their laminated cartridges both with a white backing and a clear backing. They are tough, durable and survives my toddler's antics within reason - she can't tear it apart. For me? I scored some brownie points for getting all the containers in the kitchen labelled.

You’re working in the home or office more than ever before, more virtual meetings, zoom sessions conference calls. Using every platform known to the human race, the kids interrupting, dogs barking or in my case snoring loudly. Your trying to listen to all your team members whilst keeping the world around you as silent as possible, the virtual work environment has become the norm but are you prepared. Are you still using your old headset or like me using the headphones that came with your phone. Might be time to get the right tool for the job. So we reached out to our friends at Jabra and decided to take the Jabra Evolve2 40 for a test drive.

Jabra Elite 45h - The Eternal Sunshine of the Auditory Sublime

Read more: Jabra Elite 45h - The Eternal Sunshine of the Auditory SublimeIt isn’t every day that you find the one thing in your life you didn’t know you needed, but today is that day.

The Jabra Elite 45h is honestly an absolute bargain; these headphones have the sound and design quality of high end brands but without the price tag. I love the design, love the app, love the EQ but most of all, I love the ability to wirelessly achieve great audio quality without compromising on style, comfort or battery life.

Read more: Brother P-Touch Cube Pro - Packs a wallop for label printingFor most of my life I have only known one name associated with creating labels. A proprietary eponyms that is a four-letter D word (no no not that word ending in k). With thanks to Brother Australia, DRN gets to play with the Brother P-Touch Cube Pro (PT-P910BT) label printer, the latest mobile label printer to join Brother's 36mm range.

Recently we tested and reviewed a pair of Seagate Skyhawk hard drives specifically created for Surveillance NAS units.

This time around – courtesy again from Seagate – we’re putting their latest IronWolf HDDs to the test: a couple of 16TB heavy duty general purpose drives to be the heart of our Synology DS420+ NAS.

We won’t bore you with too many specs but if you come away with a deeper appreciation of the technology that you trust your precious data to, I consider my job done.

So come along for the drive... :)

TCL Pro 10 - A worthy consideration for the budget conscious

Written by Joanna Wieclaw on . Posted in Accessories

Read more: TCL Pro 10 - A worthy consideration for the budget consciousIn this day and age we have become all but entirely reliant on our smart phones, but with pricing of the top flagship models only continuing to increase each year, do we continue to just pay more and more to get what is the next best thing? Given even a recent study has found that 9 out of 10 users feel that a brand new phone is a “waste” of money and with many handsets being priced comparably to laptops, this leaves a good opportunity in the market for devices like the TCL Pro 10, that whilst being a phone more than suitable for what most users would require, comes with a much friendlier price tag. All without having to sacrifice having a good looking and capable phone.
