Read more: Jaybird Vista - A stayer even when you tap outStill on the look out for a Father's Day gift? Or perhaps a present for a sporty person in your life? Let's take a jog, ride, or in my case, chasing kids on scooters and skateboards with the Jaybird Vista.

That probably is the most over-the-top and contradicting headline I’ve written in my 18 years at DigitalReviews.net.
Yet, what WD is launching at the moment is arguably the best SSD professionals and people on the go (even in lockdown situations!) can get their hands on.

And here’s why.

Read more: HP USB drives from PNY TestedIt has been a while since we looked at USB flash drive, they have been such a commodity for a long time there is generally very little reason for fanfare.

PNY Technologies has launched four HP memory products into A/NZ that may be different from the run of the mill products.

See our Upcoming Reviews article from a few weeks back here.

DRN would like to thank PNY Technologies for providing the review units, the team is reviewing them with Martin covering the PNY x796w and v150w, myself covering the x760w and the V245.

D-Link COVR-1103 Seamless Mesh Wi-Fi System - The triplets arrives

Written by Kevin Cheng on . Posted in Accessories

Read more: D-Link COVR-1103 Seamless Mesh Wi-Fi System - The triplets arrivesD-Link launched one of the world's first Wi-Fi Certified EasyMesh™ home and home office mesh systems in May 2020, the two node COVR-1102. It has been a robust 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) backbone for my parents' home, although I made some small sacrifices in coverage. Somethings that can easily be rectified by purchasing a single expansion unit - the COVR-1100. D-Link has recognised that sometimes having twins is just not enough, you need triplets to do it right - along comes COVR-1103.

At this moment, the chief editor Kevin is currently cursing me for taking so long with this review. It’s actually not entirely my fault this time. You see, I sat down over 90 minutes ago to write.

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Mobile Devices

Read more: The Toughest Phone Yet? Nokia 800 TOUGH – A First LookSo we know that Nokia is back in the game – see our previous review on the Nokia 5.3 smartphone that was recently launched.

And we know that Nokia had a great gig of smarter feature phones way before that.
Retro is in. Witness the 3310 relaunch a few years back.

How much back in time can we go to not miss all the features and convenience of our modern phones?

Let’s see if the Nokia 800 Tough fits that bill.

Spoiler alert: even if you have a great phone, you might still want to spend $199 Aussie bucks on this one.
But why?

QNAP TS-230 NAS – A Quick Review of the New Entry Level NAS

 Read more: QNAP TS-230 NAS – A Quick Review of the New Entry Level NAS

If you browse our reviews of NAS units, from small to enterprise level, from QNAP, Synology or any other vendor, one thing stands out: they are all in my favourite “colour” black...

Not so the new QNAP TS-230.

It has a light blue-ish (like baby blue) tint over the whole box which I wasn’t sure I’d like. But I’ve taken a liking to it as will many new users dipping their toes into the daunting NAS world.

So, has QNAP managed to make the entry level unit not only more affordable but also easier to use for newbies?

Let’s find out.
