Hi guys and welcome back to Technology Reviews. I’d like to start this blog by wishing all of you a merry Christmas and happy new year, and hope you’ve all had as good a time with your families as I’ve had with mine. But in this, I am going to unbox most of the stuff I got for Christmas, which there will be reviews of in the next few weeks. But if you like what you’re seeing here, don’t forget to like, comment, and share with your family and friends, and if you haven’t done already, follow this blog.
TURTLE BEACH STEALTH 600
Turtle Beach Stealth 600 is a wireless gaming headset for Xbox, and can also connect to compatible Windows computers from Windows 10+. Officially licensed for Xbox One, it is the first headset to connect directly to the console, and delivers powerfully immersive Windows Sonic Surround Sound, increased comfort and more. You can connect your Stealth 600 gaming headset directly to your Xbox One without using a cable, in the same way your wireless controller connects to the console. Xbox Wireless automatically configures the headset’s connection, so just turn on the headset and start playing.
SEAGATE HARD DRIVE FOR XBOX ONE
The Seagate Hard Drive lets you save many of the games you got through an Xbox Live Gold membership or Game Pass to the hard drive, which plugs directly into your console. This is something I found I needed more so in the last few months as with the more games I got, I had to delete other ones when I ran out of space.
Xbox Elite Series 2
The Xbox Elite Controller is one of the newest controllers released by Xbox _ being released on November 4th 2019 _ and has now brought round a whole new type of Elite controllers. Like it’s earlier editions, the Elite Controller Series 2 is also customisable, and has interchangeable d-pads, interchangeable thumbsticks, paddles and a thumbstick adjustment tool. I promised I wasn’t going to go in to a review-styled voice, but I think it’s worth mentioning that I think the design is brilliant because _ as I said in my review of the Xbox Adaptive Controller, the d-pad on the Adaptive Controller is hard for me to press _ so if the circular d-pad turns out to be unaccessible, then I can change it to the other one. But also _ although I haven’t gamed with it yet _ I have tried using the buttons and sticks, and the sticks especially are A LOT nicer than the ones on the proper Xbox controller.
ADJUSTABLE STAND FOR ECHO DOT 3RD GENERATION
This adjustable stand is specifically designed for the Echo Dot 3rd Generation, lets music get rid of the limitation of place and makes your living room or bedroom full of wonderful music.
It fits perfectly all new Echo Dot 3rd generations, frees up counter space and eliminates long cable trouble, the hook clips are designed to lock your Echo Dot securely while not blocking any sound or even the blue light ring, and makes it easy to move around your home.
ECHO DOT 3RD GENERATION HEATHER GREY FABRIC
Amazon’s most popular smart speaker, the new Amazon Echo Dot is the newest Echo Dot in that range of smart Alexa speakers, and is now available in 3 different fabric designs. It also has an improved and louder speaker.
You can now voice control your music, and stream songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, TuneIn, BBC Radio and more! You can also listen to Audiobooks from Audible and play Podcasts.
Compared to the 1st and 2nd Echo Dots, the speaker on the 3rd gen is a lot better, and you can pair it with other Echo devices for shared audio across different rooms.
You can ask Alexa to do everything, from asking her to play music, answer questions, read the news, tell you the whether, setting alarms, and more. Alexa also lets you connect with others, call almost anyone hands free, including UK mobile and residential numbers (UK only), send announcements to other Echo devices in your home, and use the Alexa app and call on Skype. With dozens of skills, she is only getting smarter, and she can also control your smart home accessories.
I got a lot of other presents other than the 4 in this blog, including an Oral B electric toothbrush, a smart plug, a kindle, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniels calendar, a super drive, a cook book, 2 video games, theatre tickets, art pens and my favourite of all of them _ a smart backpack! But like I said at the start, all of my technology presents will be getting reviewed in the next few weeks, so again, I hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas, and have a nice new year!
