  • Living with the Toyota Corolla Hybrid – Long term drive review

    I’ll be completely honest, I couldn’t own a Prius.  Not because I want to burn fuel and am anti-green, I just don’t like the look of it – never have.  I feel like it’s designed to stand out, and make a statement – that it does well.  So if...
  • Tag your travel timeline with Tripadvisor : our App review

    There’s something awesome about being a tourist in another city – but there’s something just as cool about being a tourist in your own city – that’s what I did last week with my three kids to test out the Tripadvisor Travel Timeline feature. We live a bit out of...
  • TESTED: 3SIXT cases and screen protectors for Samsung Galaxy S8

    You realise your new Samsung Galaxy S8 is worth $1199 – I know you didn’t actually pay that, because you’re paying it off month by month over a couple of years – but hey – that’s a lot of money.  Are you keeping it in good condition? One reason...
  • Lexus NX200t Sports Luxury AWD Review

    It’s the baby Lexus SUV, sitting below the RX range. The edgy in your face design is there, as is the refinement that is the Lexus hallmark. But is it really worth forking our $72,500 for what at the end of the day is still just another small SUV....
  • LG SJ9 Soundbar Review: Huge sound, great Bass, packed with features

    Everybody needs a soundbar.  Having tested a few of late, that’s my basic starting point for everyone who owns a TV. You see, no matter what the manufacturer tells you about their certified this and quality that – the sound from a super thin modern TV can never really...
  • Samsung Galaxy S8 Review – Different, sleek and powerful

    With nine days until the widespread availability of the Samsung Galaxy S8 the pre-orders are starting to ship, and with Samsung reporting this to be their most successfully pre-ordered phone to date – things are looking up for Samsung and we’ve been using the Galaxy S8 now for a week,...
  • First Drive: Infiniti Q60 Red Sport – a performance coupe worth a look

    I’ve always enjoyed the offerings from Infiniti, it simply delivers luxury and edgy design in its own unique way at a decent price. Since returning to Australia five years ago, its dealer network has expanded from three to 11, sales have gone from 85 units in 2012 to 807...
  • Netgear Arlo Pro Review: How do you improve something so good?

    It’s been two years since I first installed Arlo cameras at my home.  These wire-free security cameras were a revolution – I’d always wanted surveillance video but there was no way I was running wires for power and connectivity. To have a weather proof, 100% wireless camera meant anything...
  • All about that PLAYBASE, no trouble

    If you’re like many who own a full high definition TV, you’re likely now in the market for a 4K, Ultra High-Definition upgrade. With that comes an amazing picture, better aesthetics and even more smart TV features. What is doesn’t come with is stunning sound. The fact is that...
  • Famous name, all new car – First Drive: Our MG GS Review

    MG or Morris Garages has been a 90 year institution, but its days of producing iconic two-seat roadsters are now long gone. Over the years MG experienced any number of owners, but its fate was sealed early last decade when MG Rover Group was placed into receivership. A Chinese...
  • Driving the all new 2017 Audi A5 and S5 Coupé

    The original Audi A5 was launched 10 years ago at both the Geneva and Melbourne Motor shows. Over time we have seen coupé, cabriolet and sportback style versions. It has always been quite a head-turner, even head designer Walter de Silva agreeing he had created his most beautiful car....
  • My Week with a BMW i3

    This article is going to be very much a personal account of experiencing an electric vehicle (EV), we’ve covered Tesla and other electric vehicles but this is my first time living with an EV, driving one and understanding one. My day to day driver is a BMW 220d, the...
  • HAVAL H6 Review – Luxury Feel, Modern Look: Worth consideration

    When you’re driving down the road past one of just eleven Haval dealers in Australia you’re probably not inclined to turn in and take a look, you’ve probably never heard of them. That’s ok – I’m tipping Haval don’t expect their brand awarness to register on the radar just...
  • ZTE AXON 7 Review: Premium device battling head to head with big names

    ZTE is not a brand unfamiliar with the Australian market, they have sold millions of devices here – it’s just that normally they haven’t carried the ZTE brand or at least not been promoted as such.  However all that is changing as the brand looks to bring its own...
  • TESTED: The Mini SUV – Kia Soul

    Dropping by Kia to pick up the keys to the new Kia Soul was an interesting experience. Having seen one from the outside I expected a rather quirky car, seeing them drive by you had to assume things about the car. It was time to find out what it...
