The Edifier S880DB are the latest set of desktop speakers we’ve tested. We found that they hold excellent value, offering good looks, robust build quality, a host of connectivity options and a very adaptable sound signature traditionally reserved more expensive sets.

The Bissell PowerClean is a relatively compact carpet cleaner designed for use in small homes. With the compact, easy to store design offering a surprising amount of power, it’s an easy recommendation from the Trusted Reviews team.
The QE55QN85A is one of the cheapest ‘Neo QLED’ (mini-LED by any other name) TVs Samsung’s currently selling. When put to the test, the set performed incredibly well, offering great picture quality and far fewer compromises than you’d expect considering the difference in price compared to its more premium siblings.
The LG C1 isn’t terribly different to the G1 we reviewed previously, but that didn’t stop it earning a place as one of the best all-round TVs of 2021. Stellar HDR performance, coupled with pixel perfect image quality and a wealth of great gaming features including AMD FreeSync and Nvidia GSync support – you can find all this and more on the incredible C1 set.
