ViewSonic PX727HD review: Chin up, picture quality down

Victoria D. Doty

Consumer electronics is a cutthroat world. If you’re not improving, someone else probably is. Five years ago, the ViewSonic PX727HD may have been a good buy, but it isn’t today. Other projectors in its price range put out brighter images with more contrast and better color accuracy. They also throw in more features like lens shift and wider zoom ranges. Although not without its charms, the PX727HD has been left behind by competition that offers more for the same money.

Epson EF-100 review: Lasers, compact size and built-in Netflix

Victoria D. Doty

The Epson EF-100 is a different kind of projector. It’s not exactly at home in a traditional theater setup, mounted to the ceiling and projecting on a permanent screen — although you can if you want. Instead, Epson sees this projector as something you fit wherever there’s a power outlet, whenever you want big-screen entertainment. A backyard, for instance, or shining on the ceiling when you’re in bed. It’s small and designed to work in any position, including on its side or back. But that’s just the beginning.

2021 Jaguar F-Type review: Giggle factory

Victoria D. Doty

It is a surprise what a new established of headlights will do.


Andrew Krok/Roadshow

The Jaguar F-Type is unabashed theater. Shorter, minimal and packing as much character as an early Robin Williams stand-up program, the only point that just one-ups this activity coupe’s visuals is how it tackles curvy roads. The 2021 F-Type also packs a couple new updates that enhance its every day livability, but make no error — there is certainly nonetheless a whole whole lot of ridiculousness hiding under its svelte new sheetmetal.

What is greater than a fast convertible on a warm day?

Galaxy A01 review: Bare-bones smart phone for the budget conscious

Victoria D. Doty

The Galaxy A01 is a no-fuss, low-priced Android phone that is the cheapest member of Samsung’s A-series of budget phones. Priced at $150 (though we’ve seen it on sale for as low as $100 unlocked from Samsung), the phone’s bare-bones hardware and features — like its plain design and low-resolution display– aren’t much to get excited about. But the handset covers the basics well enough that, for its low price, it should be a decent device to snap photos, check email, watch videos and, of course, make calls.
