Asus ROG Gaming Keyboard Gets 5 Stars
OPINION: We’re back again with another edition of Trusted Recommends, which takes us through all the top products we’ve reviewed over the past two weeks.
We’ve been lucky enough to test a wide range of fantastic products over the past two weeks, from OnePlus’ latest flagship phone to Asus’ five-star gaming keyboard, all of which have earned our coveted Trusted Reviews Recommended badge.
Without further ado, here are all the products that impressed us this time around.
Soundcore Cosmos A40
The first product this week is the Soundcore Space A40. These headphones are loaded with features, deliver decent and balanced sound, and have fantastic battery life, all for less than £100.
XGIMI Mogo Pro+
This ultra-portable XGIMI Mogo Pro+ projector is small enough to take on the go and can create a high-quality cinema-sized screen when used in a dark room. We liked the ease of auto-tuning and the performance of the two 3W speakers.
This Denon DHT-S316 soundbar makes it easy to upgrade your TV as it delivers much more spacious and clear sound than most standard TVs and offers fantastic integration with a built-in subwoofer for a more immersive experience.
Headphones OnePlus Pro 2
The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 features impressive noise cancellation that can block out the world around you, along with excellent call quality and more than enough comfort to wear for hours. We thought the overall sound was warm and inviting, although they provide the best performance when paired with the latest OnePlus phone.
This Groove-e Zeus radio is easy to use and delivers good quality radio with 60 DAB and FM presets. The construction of this radio is solid and well built, with a small LCD that is big and bright enough to read.
Sony Xperia 5 IV
Focused on photography, this Sony smartphone features a compact, pocketable form factor and a durable OLED display with an aspect ratio perfect for watching movies. We think this phone is perfect for photography enthusiasts who will take advantage of the three professional camera and video apps that come with the device.
Free Avira Security
Avira Free Security is not only free, but also supports Windows 7 and Windows 8, and includes many additional tools to keep you safe, such as a free and easy-to-use password manager.
Asus ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition
If you are looking for an incredibly powerful and ultra-light gaming mouse, the Asus ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition might be the best choice for you. It boasts long battery life, is comfortable for smaller hands, and comes with all the software support you’d expect from an Asus ROG.
HP Envy 16
The HP Envy 16 is a fantastic 16-inch laptop. We found it to be fast, well connected, and much more affordable than many of its competitors. It could be the perfect laptop for those interested in content creation and on a budget, thanks to its OLED display and default 2560 x 1600 resolution.
Roccat Sin Max Air
This Roccat Syn Max Air headset features excellent sound, balanced and immersive, combined with a high level of comfort that allowed our reviewer to wear them for extended periods of time without any issues. The only real downside to this headset is battery life, which pales in comparison to several of its competitors.
Chromebook Acer Vero 514
The Acer Chromebook Vero 514 offers a great design, and our reviewer liked the responsive and compact keyboard. The 14-inch display has Full HD resolution, and the fast 12th Gen Intel processor delivers noticeably fast performance.
Lenovo Yoga Slim 9i
Considering another fantastic laptop, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 9i is ultra-portable, making it the perfect choice for anyone currently doing hybrid work. It features a stunning OLED display that makes watching video content a pleasure, and is powerful with a reliable 12th generation Intel processor.
Dual touch edge
The DualSense Edge is Sony’s latest high-performance controller that boasts a host of new buttons and more customization options than before, making it ideal for hardcore gamers looking to get the most out of their PS5. The main downside of this controller is its high price and learning curve, which can turn some casual gamers off.
The Samsung WW90T684DLH was praised for its excellent stain removal, especially at 20 degrees Celsius, and the AddWash function, which allows you to add more items at any time during the wash.
Avast One Essential
This free antivirus software, Avast One Essential, has received 4.5 stars from us for its continued support for Windows 7 and 8, and excellent ransomware protection.
Snuggledown Intelligent Warmth Supreme Comfort Heated Topper
If you want to stay cozy during these colder months, the Snuggledown Intelligent Warmth Supreme Comfort Heated Blanket is a fantastic option, featuring dual controls, a breathable cotton top and multiple heating options. The only thing to keep in mind is that on colder nights, he needs some time to warm up, so you can plan ahead if you want to enjoy a warm bed as soon as you crawl under the covers.
Macbook Pro 14 inch
The only Apple product to make the list this week is the 14-inch MacBook Pro (2023). This laptop was designed for those who need serious power on the go. The upgrades from the previous version are minimal, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the best laptops you can buy.
Smart Wi-Fi socket Meross Mini
The Meross Smart Wi-Fi Plus Mini offers more flexibility for less than £20 with support for apps like Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
One Plus 11
The OnePlus 11 knocked us out by fulfilling all the key criteria for what a flagship phone has to offer. It features a stunning 6.7-inch AMOLED display and an impressive 50MP rear camera, and is more affordable than many other Android and Apple phones on the market.
Noble Focus Pro
These Noble Fokus Pro headphones have received a fantastic 4.5-star rating for their incredible sound quality, comfortable fit, and long battery life, though we recommend trying something else if you’re in need of a pair of dedicated ANC headphones.
Asus ROG Nitrogen
The only product to get five stars this time around is the fantastic Asus ROG Azoth gaming keyboard, which comes with hot swappable switches as well as a lubrication kit. If money doesn’t matter, then this gaming keyboard might be for you.
