Sony HT-G700 review: Room-filling sound at a premium price

Dolby Atmos soundbars have been about for a couple decades but remained a reasonably niche product or service till now. Big firms these kinds of as Sonos and JBL, have only just announced their initial Atmos products in 2020, when other manufacturers simply offer Dolby “compatibility”. The Sony HT-G700 is unconventional in this regard — it is in a position to decode Dolby Atmos from appropriate devices but not in a position to bodily recreate it. This is a strictly three.one-channel soundbar, with no true rears or height speakers and no capacity to include them later on. As a substitute

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe review: Absurd, but like, in a good way

It is really not just orange, it’s Lava Orange.


Steven Ewing/Roadshow

While I stand company in my perception that the twin-turbocharged S is the sweet spot of the Porsche Cayenne lineup, I’m also not a single to pooh-pooh extra for excess’ sake. Following all, it’s hard not to get energized about a V8-packing SUV that harnesses the ability of electrical energy to supply a whopping 670 horsepower. And hey, wouldn’t you know, there’s now a ‘coupe’ model of that monster, far too.

Like

  • 670 horsepower, 663 pound-ft of torque
  • Excellent steering and chassis tuning
  • Fantastic PCM infotainment tech

Microsoft Surface Book 3 15 review: Likable but not lovable

microsoft-surface-book-3-0142

The display section detaches to become a tablet, but can also bereattached flipped around for use as a heavier (but faster) tablet or in tent mode like a typical 2-in-1.


Lori Grunin/CNET

Microsoft’s update to the 15-inch Surface Book 2, the aptly named Surface Book 3, remains essentially the same. It’s still the laptop that tries to be all things to all people: it’s a clamshell, a convertible and a standalone tablet, where most laptops settle for two out of three. But in the past couple of years the competition for creative dollars has gotten a lot tougher

Review: Moto G Stylus looks too good to cost just $300

With the launch of the Moto G Stylus ($300 at Amazon) and Moto G Power ($250 at Best Buy), Motorola did something a little weird to its phones: It removed all the numbers from the phone’s names. Last year, the Chicago-based company launched the much-beloved Moto G7. The year prior there was the Moto G6 and before that the Moto G5 and G5 Plus. And while there actually is a Moto G8, it’s not destined for the US.

Like

  • Stunning design
  • Solid battery life so far
  • Great price

Don’t Like

  • Stylus needs more software features
  • No NFC

HBO Max review: 10,000 hours of great TV and movies but still incomplete

HBO Max, HBO’s entry into the streaming wars, is a slick app chock-full of popular TV shows and movies. It’s got HBO’s entire catalog, along with favorites such as Friends, Rick and Morty, the Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter movies, and almost every Studio Ghibli film — making it a solid streaming collection for adults and children, with the ability to control ratings on kids’ profiles better than most other services.
