Scan Book, Magazine, Journal, and Notebook Pages with the IRIScan Book 5 WiFi

Not long ago, there were a fair number of handheld, or wand, scanners like the IRIScan Book 5 WiFi ($149) on the market, but they have become less common. The primary difference between these and most other types of scanners is that you move it over the material you’re scanning, rather than the machine itself moving the content over the scanning sensor. As with the Editors’ Choice VuPoint... [Read more]

From Windows, to iOS, to MacOS, to Android, and back, with Logitech’s K780 Multi-Device Keyboard

Over the course of a day, many of us flip back and forth between two, sometimes three, computing devices, moving from the keyboard on a desktop to the virtual keyboard on a mobile device, and back again. Wouldn’t it be much simpler if you could switch between and enter data on these gadgets from the same keyboard? A while back, Logitech released such a solution, the K380 Bluetooth Keyboard ($30),... [Read more]

Charge Two Mobile Devices at Once with Aukey’s 20W Portable Foldable Solar Charger

Nowadays few of us would consider “roughing it” in the wilds without taking along at least a smartphone, and perhaps even a tablet or laptop. The problem with that is, when we get too far away from civilization — or our cars, at least — for more than a day or so, there’s no way to keep our mobile devices charged.

Exceptional Print Quality with Epson’s Expression Home XP-440 Small-in-One Inkjet Printer

We remember, about four or five years ago, when the first Epson Small-in-One printers appeared on the market. Then as now, their key selling point was, of course, size: You could buy an all-in-one (AIO) machine with a very small footprint that printed, copied, and scanned, and tuck it on the corner of your desk. The Expression Home Small-in-Ones have been a mainstay for many years, like the Expression... [Read more]

Accurate and Reasonably Fast Gaming at a Budget Price with Aukey’s KM-C4 Gaming Mouse

The hype around gaming mice makes it difficult to see the reality for the hyperbole. You can spend $60 or more for industry-standard pointing devices, such as the Razer DeathAdder Elite, or choose less costly alternatives like Logitech’s G602. Yet there’s an even less expensive, highly customizable, lesser-known alternative — $36 Aukey KM-C4 Gaming Mouse, which regularly retails for as little... [Read more]
