Simplisafe Wireless Home Security Review

Simple to install and very easy to use, Simplisafe is a great home alarm system which is monitored by a security firm that can call out the police on your behalf.
Should I Buy The Simplisafe Wireless Home Security System?
The Simplisafe system couldn’t be easier to self-install, but it does require a monthly subscription which could put some people off. We’d like the option of an external siren, but other than that, it’s a comprehensive smart security system.

Apple AirPower Wireless Charger Release Date, Price & Specifications

Apple AirPower Wireless Charger Release Date, Price & Specifications
We write about a lot of devices that are yet to go on sale, but they are usually phones, tablets and laptops, not wireless chargers. So what makes this one so special? Well it's not because it's an Apple wireless charger, if that's what you're thinking. Actually the AirPower has caught our eye because it is one of very few devices that are able to wirelessly charge multiple devices at once. 

Apple's upcoming AirPower is a wireless charging pad that can juice up three Apple devices at once, such as your iPhone, Apple Watch and Qi-enabled Apple AirPods. Or if you're not that much of an Apple fan, your iPhone and your partner's iPhone - it doesn't look big enough to accommodate three iPhones, even if you had three to charge.

The wireless charging built into the latest iPhones (iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X) is compliant with Qi, which is also supported by all the flagship Android phones that offer wireless charging. We hope this means that you will also be able to charge Android devices using the AirPower, though we will let you know for sure when we get one in to test.

Supposedly the three devices placed on top of AirPower are able to 'communicate' with each other to intelligently manage charging, with stats displayed on the iPhone screen. We think this is a clever way of saying it will recognise the device type and deliver the optimum amount of power, potentially allowing it to charge more power-hungry devices faster.

However, it might also be a way Apple is able to rule out Android devices from the equation. It will be interesting to learn the max output of the AirPower, given that iPhones can accept only 7.5W and some Android phones can take double this.

In the meantime, if you're looking for a multi-device wireless charger that will support your Android phone and your iPhone there's always this two-device example from Energizer. It costs just £13.95, which we expect is going to be a lot cheaper than Apple's wireless charger.

When is the Apple AirPower release date?
Given that the iPhone 8 and iPhone X were announced back in September we're surprised we're still waiting for Apple's wireless charger to launch. The company has simply said that it will be available in 2018.

Recent rumours have suggested it will go on sale this month, with DigiTimes the latest to quote a March on sale.

How much will the Apple AirPower cost?
Apple has not confirmed pricing for its wireless charger, though our colleagues over at Macworld think it could be as high as £199/$199. Ouch!

We'll bring you more info when it becomes available.

WD My Cloud Mirror 4TB Review

If you’re looking for a home storage solution but can’t be bothered sourcing and installing your own disks then the WD My Cloud Mirror is an attractive option at a good price. WD My Cloud Mirror 4TB review.
Should I Buy The WD My Cloud Mirror 4TB?
When it comes to ease of use the WE My Cloud Mirror is hard to beat. Initial setup is very easy and even sorting our remote access is simple too. For sharing music, movies, photos and documents it works a treat and performance is fine. The downside is that you don’t get the huge range of apps that are available for other brands. However, if you prioritise ease of set up and ease of use the WD is worth looking at and with 4 TB of storage included for the price, it’s a great value option.

Drobo 5N2 Review

Drobo's latest NAS starts with the assumption that everyone who buys a NAS box doesn’t start with a full complement of identical hard drives. Here's our Drobo 5N2 review.
Should I buy the Drobo 5N2?
It might be relatively expensive, but the flexible RAID system that can handle multiple drives of different size could be a major cost saving for many users. The performance, build quality and expanding app selection also makes the Drobo 5N2 a highly desirable solution.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390) Review: Hands-on

The redesigned XPS 13 2-in-1 is finally good enough to really rival Dell's traditional laptops - find out what we thought when it launched at Computex 2019.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390)?
We won't know just how well the new 10nm Intel chips perform until we get the XPS 13 2-in-1 into the office for a proper review, but on paper this looks like a very capable machine. Strong specs combined with the best of Dell's already strong XPS design language mean that not only does this look like a good convertible, it might even dethrone its clamshell cousin from the top of the laptop world.
