Victoria D. Doty

The Superior Altitude trim shown in this article is on the fancier side.

Emme Corridor/Roadshow

You have to be a selected variety of man or woman to recognize what the Jeep Cherokee has to present. It really is not the ideal-managing SUV in its course, nor is it the most techy. Other crossovers glance better, and several present much more utility. But only the Cherokee will do appropriate Jeep stuff. If off-roading’s your video game, this SUV is for you.


  • Excellent off-highway abilities
  • Generous tow score
  • Excellent infotainment program

Really don’t Like

  • Not several typical driving aids
  • Modest cargo

Dell XPS 15 9500 review: a good balance for photo editing

Victoria D. Doty


Lori Grunin/CNET

Dell’s XPS 15 laptops continue to be crowd pleasers. With its eye-catching, slim new design and photo-editing-friendly performance, display and feature set, the latest model can hold its own as a less powerful — much cheaper — alternative to a MacBook Pro ($2,399 at Apple) 16. It’s well worth a look if that’s how you roll, though you might want to consider the new 17-inch XPS 17 instead for the bigger screen and it’s likely not worth the money if all you need is a pretty work clamshell.


  • Very good control over color management for a

Neabot robot vacuum hands-on: Reinventing the way you clean the house Review

Victoria D. Doty

The robotic vacuums are having cleverer. From the ILife flooring washing Shinebot, to the amazingly intelligent object-recognizing mopping and cleaning Deebot Ozmo T8 AIVI, to the pet poop-keeping away from, sweeping, and mopping Roborock S6 MaxV, there is some amazingly intelligent tech out there.

But the Neabot has a function that none of the other robots I have witnessed so far have. The Neabot empties its

Optoma HD146X review: Solid projector value that cuts a few corners

Victoria D. Doty

Projectors exist to create light. Super-bright light bulbs, called lamps, convert electricity into photons, which get focused on some sort of chip; color filters are mixed in there somewhere, the result gets thrown out through a lens and bam! You’ve got a huge image to shine on a screen. The problem with some projectors, like the Optoma HD146X, is that the noise made by the fan that’s necessary to cool all those light-creating innards can distract from that huge image.

Don’t Like

  • Fan noise is quite noticeable.
  • Only one input.
  • Minimal zoom range.

The picture on the HD146X is

Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus review: Nice extras give it an edge over other cheap tablets

Victoria D. Doty

With types obtainable in 7-, eight- and ten-inch monitor measurements and priced as small as $50 before Key Day discounts, Amazon’s line of Hearth tablets have long been the go-to choice for cut price gadget hunters. But with its 2020 refresh of the eight-inch Hearth High definition eight pill, long the Goldilocks of its line, Amazon is incorporating a twist that might depart you questioning which just one to acquire. There are now two eight-inch types to decide on from: a baseline Hearth High definition eight starting off at $90 (£90), and the $one hundred ten (£110) Hearth High definition
