We first saw Lego’s new Lord of the Rings set back in January at the Toy Fair. It’s safe to say that I was very excited at the time; so you can imagine the excitement when we were sent a set based on Shelob, Sam, Frodo and Gollum in the post. I immediately called dibs and set about building the set and after a short while this is the result. You have to admit...

We test gadgets that can do almost anything; sometimes we review ones which are out of the ordinary and sometimes we get sent functional items. The Epson XP-102 all in one home printer, scanner and copier falls into that category but has a claim to fame; it’s the smallest that Epson has ever produced. Neil Wilson, product manager, Epson UK, certainly seems to think...

I’ve tested a few electric shavers in the past, I’m starting to think people are trying to tell me something ;-). This week i’ve received the Braun Cruzer 6 Face and hair trimmer which is also a shaver. I was intrigued to try it out, purely after reading the mixed reviews on Amazon.

I have a weakness for Star Wars Lego, even at 28 years of age I love the stuff. The range has expanded from pure bricks and blocks to other items over the years, such as the Darth Vader alarm clocks and Star Wars Lego torches we’ve featured in the past. Today we found an awesome Darth Vader lamp which has the famous overlord wielding an LED lightsaber. It’s not a cheap...

We get sent all sorts of quirky gadgets here at Gagdets and Gizmos towers, some are big and some are small. This week we received a new type of pen named FountainBall; a ballpoint pen which thinks it’s a fountain pen. At first glance it appears to be just your run of the mill pen, until you unscrew it and see it uses standard ink cartridges. You pop one in (one...

July 25th 2012 saw the release of Apple’s latest operating system, OSX Mountain Lion, for the tiny sum of £13.99 on the UK app store. Many have flocked to download the new app only to be jilted by the app store with an error message. It simply reads, “There was an error in the App store. Please try again later. (100).” Annoyingly I am affected by this...

A few weeks ago we spoke about Breffo’s new SpiderPodium tablet and at the time mentioned we would be getting our hands on one soon. That day has come and we are ready to field test the SpiderPodium tablet with the new iPad. Read our review below, we promise the spidery nature of the legs isn’t creepy in the slightest! Appearance Like a spider it comes with...

I’ve had five or six shredders in the past and each and every one has let me down in some way shape or form. The main thing that usually goes wrong is it would jam up, sometimes to the point where the shredder was useless. Therefore I was pretty excited to receive Fellowes most recent business shredder, the Powershred (PS) -79Ci because it claimed to be completely...
