Synology’s NAS boxes often get an upgraded on a two-year cycle. And, while in that time the outside changed very little, the inside of four-bay ‘j Series’ NAS has been entirely overhauled.

Xiaomi Mi Note 3 News: How to Buy in UK, Release Date & Specs

In November 2016 the Mi Note 2’s launch announcement was entirely overshadowed by the revolutionary Mi Mix – something we saw again this morning as Xiaomi unveiled updates to both handsets (and a new Mi Notebook Pro) in the same launch event.

Lenovo IdeaPad 320S Laptop Review

The Lenovo IdeaPad 320S is an entry-level laptop that looks, from arm’s width at least, similar to ones costing £600-1000. Sub-£400 models don’t have to be dumpy or ugly anymore.

It’s time to celebrate.  The Lenovo IdeaPad 320S is a great match for someone with a low budget and…

On 11 September it will announce both the Mi Mix 2 and Mi Note 3. That’s a shame, because the Mi Note line is worthy of consumer attention. Better value than UK flagships, but with a gorgeous design and the…

Your buying guide for the best cheap tablets in 2017 Amazon is the current king of cheap tablets. The 2017 Amazon Fire 7 costs £49.99, and has – for the insanely low price – a decent screen plus Alexa, a microSD slot for adding more storage, and an easy-to-use operating system.
