VTech VM981 Safe & Sound Expandable HD Video Baby Monitor review: Not quite ready for the nursery

Missing features and image-quality shortcomings keep this baby monitor from being all it can be.

Bose Soundlink Revolve+ review: An all-around excellent indoor/outdoor Bluetooth speaker

Audiophiles might blanch at the presence of a single full-range transducer, but we have no complaints about its performance.

Chuwi Hi13 review: A $500 Surface Book clone that skimps too much



The Chuwi Hi13 2-in-1 tablet aspires to be a poor man’s Surface Book, with a price tag a mere fraction of Microsoft’s own. But as our Hi13 review demonstrates, it falls short in terms of performance, battery life, and even construction.It must be said that the Hi13 performs basic computing tasks adequately: office work, web browsing, 4K video playback, and even (very) light gaming. For $400 (plus an additional $65 for the almost-obligatory keyboard base, and $35 for an optional stylus) Chuwi tries to deliver a ruggedized version of the Surface Book—there’s even a virtually identical 3,000x2,000 display. Our opinion, though, is that Chuwi would have been better off spending a tad less on the display and investing more heavily elsewhere.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Xbox One S review: A great Ultra HD Blu-ray player for gamers



This review doesn’t touch the gaming side of the Xbox One S. If that’s what interests you, this review discusses some of that. We used use the same 2TB model for this evaluation, but the less-expensive 500GB model will do just as well if you plan to use the machine as an Ultra HD Blu-ray player, media renderer, and 4K video streamer. Microsoft
Updates that enable the Xbox One S to send Ultra HD Blu-ray’s high-definition audio bitstreams (Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD Master Audio, and Dolby Atmos) over HDMI to higher-end A/V receivers render it an incredible bargain, especially if you also enjoy playing video games. You'll have to jump through a few hoops--including installing Microsoft's Blu-ray player app--and you'll need to figure out how to use the Xbox One controller to play Blu-ray discs (this support article on Microsoft's help site tells you how), but those are one-time obstacles. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
