Overall, this phone is pretty good. It needs some adjustments to really make it “wow” but it’s not an overpriced slouch by any means. The photographic modes need some work, however they perform better than my ‘minimum standards’ so that’s a bonus. This is a smartphone you likely won’t regret buying as it has a very good balance of usability and affordability. Continue reading Hands-On Review: OPPO A91 Smartphone
Overall, I found this to be a decent mid-range phone, well priced for what you get, though letting itself down a little in some key places. […] Users who have a stronger focus on social media posting will find this a great phone, but gamers may be a little disappointed. Continue reading Hands-on Review: OPPO Reno2 Z smartphone
Overall, this unit was a real stunner, providing more than enough capability to handle the large number of smart devices I have in the house without affecting my day to day networking needs. Continue reading Hands-On Review: D-Link EXO AC3000 Smart Mesh Wi-Fi Router – DIR-3060
Overall, it’s a top-notch entry-level phone, no pun intended. It will do all you ask of it, within reason, and give you good service. It is one of the rare handsets these days that still carry the 3.5mm headphone jack, which I really love… Continue reading Hands-on Review: OPPO AX5s Smartphone
Be in to win 1 of 2 1-year 5-device licences to this comprehensive security package! Continue reading WIN: Norton Security Premium for a year!
Overall, this is a good entry-level phone for someone in their 30’s an up. Younger people will want, nay, demand something with more grunt because “…I want to play the newest games, Dad… this sucks.!” This is a phone, first and foremost. Continue reading Hands-on Review: Huawei Y6 Pro 2019

Overall, a stunning advancement in family-oriented home security and quite overdue. While it is not the first device to address this market, it is certainly the best I have encountered myself and leaves the other devices I have tried eating its dust. At $600+/- it’s not cheap, but if you have kids it’s an investment you would be wise to give serious consideration to. Continue reading Hands-On Review: D-Link D-Fend AC2600 WiFi Router
Overall, a surprisingly good camera that has room for development but hits the ground running with an impressive toolset already built in. Continue reading Hands-on Review: FujiFilm X-T3 DSLR
Overall, is this a good printer for someone wanting something simple, durable and long-lasting? On most counts, I would say a definite yes. You really are not going to find the initial setup to be pleasant, fun or fast, but at least you only need to do it once. Continue reading Hands-on Review: Epson ET-2710 EcoTank 3-in-1 MFC
Overall, I still think this phone is going to shake up the marketplace – you simply don’t get this kind of gear from any other brand at a price even close to this. Would I recommend it to a friend? Sure, in fact, I showed it to a friend recently and the next day they went and bought three of them… Continue reading Review: OPPO AX7 Smartphone
Win a brand new OPPO AX7 Smartphone thanks to OPPO NZ, in partnership with KIWIreviews.nz and Say what… Magazine. Continue reading OPPO AX7 Giveaway!
Overall, this is a device that will appeal to a good audience, while having zero impact on the high-end market. It’s well placed for the Selfie Generation, but should also carry some interest for the small-format digital photographer. Continue reading Review: Oppo R17 Pro
Overall, this was a delight to use, and very well placed for the SOHO and small/medium business market. Larger businesses may want to skip this and invest in the top-line hardware and specialist software, but anyone else will find a set of 4-6 of these more than sufficient to cover the external facings of any moderate building. The price tag is well within the budget for even a home user simply wanting something to keep an eye on the car, boat or approaches to the front door or garage, and for the sake of a couple of holes and some ethernet cable, it gives you peace of mind in all weather. Well worth considering if your needs fall in line with that. Continue reading Review: D-Link Vigilance Outdoor Dome PoE Network Camera – DCS-4633EV
Overall, the price is quite reasonable, though a little on the high side for some people who want a simpler, more affordable device to add to their home security setup. What you get is reflected in what you pay, and while you won’t get change from three big red notes, you will get solid peace of mind. Continue reading Review: D-Link DCS-8525LH Full HD Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Camera
Overall, I was highly impressed by this unit and would recommend it to anyone who wanted to upgrade the kids’ laptop or desktop system without blowing the budget and giving in to their demands for a gaming rig that could run a Mars colonisation mission on the side without even breaking a sweat. Continue reading Review: Crucial BX500 SSD
It’s a good across-the-board handset – Above-average in most areas but top-flight in none. For those seeking their first ‘big’ phone it’s a perfect place to start… Continue reading Hands-On Review: Huawei Nova 3i Smartphone
The concept of Synergy – where the resulting combination is somehow more than just the sum of its parts – applies beautifully here. Three smaller units, working in harmony at a distance from each other, creates a result that far exceeds expectations. What excites me more is that this is a scalable solution… Continue reading Review: D-Link COVR 1203 Mesh WiFi Network
Overall, without the need to sing the same praises I heaped upon the MX300, all I can say is that this drive cuts a brilliant balance between value for money and performance. Continue reading Review: Crucial MX500 1TB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm Internal SSD
Overall, I found this phone to be quite acceptable, if not as spectacular and ground-breaking as some hype would have you think. That said, the price tag on it brings it well into the “stunningly good value” range with features you could rightly expect in a phone twice the price. Continue reading Hands-On Review – HUAWEI Nova 2i
Entry is open to everyone in NZ, and runs from Feb 1st to Feb 21st inclusive. Full details on the KIWIreviews.nz website Competitions page. Continue reading WIN a Huawei Nova 2i Smartphone in February!
