Newer reviews can be expected to be ongoing projects, with minor additions or corrections.

Note: When I rate stuff, a 10/10 does not indicate perfect in an absolute academic sense, but as in (at least) as good as could be expected at the time, minor flaws allowed. For portable devices typically limited by the size and weight. Value for money also counts. An electronic device that got a high score in 2005, most likely would seem like pure trash ten years later….

Newer postings are in English (well sort of, bare with me, non-native…), some earlier than 2010 just blunt copies of the texts in Danish.

Collecting of old stuff started May 2015. Entries are generally attempted dated with original stamps, even if they are somewhat updated since, several reviews have been ongoing ‘projects’.
