Wacom Stand Review

When the MobileStudio Pro was released it wasn’t just the name which was changed to move it away from the Cintiq Companion range. This time around Wacom decided not to include the extras which were bundled with the earlier devices, so this time you didn’t get a stand or slick carry case. If I’m honest I never liked the Companion stands. They were large, bulky, clumsy and [...]

Pro Pen 3D Review

When it comes to drawing, painting or sculpting digitally the pen you use is just as important as the device you are working on. Just like any input device it must be comfortable as well as functional but most importantly it needs to feel “right”. That’s quite a general statement but until you touch the tip to the screen you don’t know if that pen in your [...]

MobileStudio Pro 16 Review

It’s no secret that Wacom’s foray into the mobile market has been a patchy one. Throughout the Cintiq Companions four-year lifespan we have seen many iterations, including an Android based system, as they test the market and tweak the design to hit that sweet spot of functionality and mobility. Unfortunately, although good devices, they have been marred by issues of weight, battery life and noise. Not to mention a [...]

PenDorra Stylus Review

Stylus is the buzzword at the moment and everyday there seems to be a new release which will improve the way you interact with your device. Just like a traditional pen or pencil, your choice of stationary can be a very personal one. The same can be said of the stylus you use, so more choice in this area is never a bad thing. Whether your an artist or [...]

Fitbit Blaze Review

It’s been a while since I used a fitness tracker. I’ve had a few over the years but the reason I stopped wearing one was that I found them limiting. They are ideal for everyday use but only being able to track running or walking meant my trips to the gym were being dictated by the device, meaning I only wanted to do the activities which were actually tracked. [...]

iPad Pro & Apple Pencil Review

I never intended to buy an iPad Pro. Yes, I own an iPhone and have done for many years now. I also got sucked into the whole iPad vortex eventually, thinking it would allow me to be more productive but it ultimately ended up living out its days in the bottom of a drawer. When Apple revealed the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil I didn't even bother to [...]

Jaybird Reign Review

When you hear the words “Activity Tracker” the first thought which springs to mind is one of a pedometer. A device worn on your wrist or belt which simply counts your movements for the day. This information is then pushed through various algorithms to work out when you were walking, running or just sat on the sofa. The idea behind this type of tracker being that you have a [...]

Jaybird X2 Review

You may not know it but we can all travel in time. We do it while at work or working out, on a long commute or studying in our bedrooms, yet we don`t even notice. Now, this ability is limited. We can`t go backwards or forwards, instead, with the help of a magical ingredient, we can make the present seem to fly by. What is that magical ingredient? You [...]

Sketch Wallet – Review in Progress

Improving my drawing skills is something I strive for, not just for my career but also because I want to be a better artist. No matter how many books you follow or how many classes you take, the best advice has always been to draw every day. Just half an hour of daily doodling can improve your skills over time - Its that simple. The problem is life inevitably gets [...]

Huion 1060 Plus Review

If you are any type of graphic artist, be that a traditional painter who uses applications like Photoshop or Mischief, or more of a 3D modeller and virtual sculptor, you need to own a graphics tablet. Using a standard mouse just isn`t an option with this type of work. With a tablet and stylus you get that natural fluidity and pressure sensitivity as you would if drawing with a [...]
