HP 15-g000na 29/11/2017

HP Notebook

HP 15-g000na Introduction I brought this HP notebook from Argos for £279.99 in 2014. It was a good deal as I brought it as part of a laptop bundle which contained a laptop bag and MCafee internet security. The manufacturing product number of the laptop is G7V83EA#ABU. The operating system is Windows 8.1 64-bit Edition and this is really good. The screen size is 15.6" and this is really good as it is a wide screen and I can see the screen clearly. The Integrated webcam is above the screen display and it is of excellent quality during skype chats. The stereo speakers could have been better as the volume is not so great and I had to buy external speakers to get good volume when watching films. The central processing unit is an AMD A series A4-6210 / 1.8 GHz and this was fairly satisfactory. The main storage has 1 TB HDD / 5400 rpm which is very good. There is also a DVD±RW (±R DL) / DVD-RAM which works very well. The laptop has a HDMI port and three USB ports and a memory card reader slot which are still in a perfect condition after two years of use. The instruction manual that was provided by HP was very easy to follow. I cannot comment on the manufacturer support as I did not have to contact them at any point so far! Conclusion I am really pleased with this HP notebook and I would definitely buy a HP laptop again!

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 256GB 17/11/2017

The Microsoft Surface Pro

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 256GB The Microsoft Surface Pro Even though several new brands have emerged over the years, sometimes I still prefer to use traditional Microsoft Products. After purchasing tablets from various other brands, and being disappointed at the quality and durability, I finally decided to purchase the Microsoft Surface Pro because it offered the option of being a laptop and tablet in one and it looks quite professional.It is very easy to switch the surface pro from being a laptop to a tablet by just changing the position of the stand. Evaluation of The Microsoft Surface Pro The screen of the Surface Pro is quite large and this is good for my bad eyesight. The screen is 12.3-inches and it has a special display callled PixelSense™ touchscreen display. The speed of the Surafce Pro is very good and the screen is very responsive and quick.The Surface Pro uses the Windows 10 Pro operating system which is a system that I am quite satisfied with and works really well. The Surface Pro is very lightweight and weighs only 1.69lbs (766g). This is really convenient as I take the Surface Pro to work and it is really lightweight to carry around in my bag. A surface pen is included and this is very useful for when I write minutes for meetings as I just jot everything down on the Surface Pro and I am able to share the notes easily. I also use the Surface Pro for video conferencing, because it contains very good front-facing and 8MP autofocus rear-facing cameras which is very good. The Surface Pro ...

Samsung GALAXY S5 4G 16GB 13/11/2017

The Samsung Galaxy S5

Samsung GALAXY S5 4G 16GB The Samsung Galaxy S5 I have been using the Samsung Galaxy range of phones for quite a few years now. I started with the Galaxy Ace, then I got the S3 and now I am using the S5. Before I got the S5, I temporarily got a windows phone and although the phone was good, I was unhappy with the difference and decided to go back to using the Samsung phone and purchase a Galaxy S5 in October 2015 this year. I purchase the phone on a monthly contract through the phone provider 3 for the price of £20 a month, on a two year contract. The battery talk time is very good and it is much better that the previous Galaxy phones and a little bit of charge lasts a long time. The durability and robustness of the phone is good so far and I have purchased a good phone cover so that the screen does not crack! I am able to use the WI-FI and mobile internet on the phone and the internet quality on the phone is quite good in both instances. I have downloaded apps like facebook, twitter and instagram on the phone and the apps work really fast and I am able to interact well on the phone. The best thing I like about this phone, is the S Health monitor which measures how many steps you take a day. It can also measure your heartbeat and your stress levels. Conclusion I would definitely recommend that you but the Galaxy S5 because it is one of the best designed phones that exist!

Tiger Balm White Ointment 04/11/2017

Soothes those aches, pains and itching!

Tiger Balm White Ointment Introduction I have been using Tiger Balm since my childhood. There has always been a tub of tiger balm in the house! When I was younger, Tiger Balm was not available in the United Kingdom and my aunt who migrated to Singapore used to send this over by post for my mum! Tiger balm has been manufactured by Haw Par Healthcare in Singapore but has available in the United Kingdom for quite a few years now. There is a red version and a white version. The red balm is more strong compared to the white balm. I prefer the white balm as it is milder and as I have sensitive skin. There is also an oil version of tiger balm which is just as effective. What can Tiger Balm be used for? Tiger balm can be used for muscular aches,insect bites, itching and headaches. To use tiger balm, you just have to apply it to the affected parts. I get skin allergies all the time and I often apply tiger balm to the areas of itching. The balm is easily aborbed by the skin and leaves minimal residue. However, I have noticed that the red version tends to give a rouge effect and that another reason why I prefer the white balm. Tiger balm contains 8% menthol, 25% camphor, 16% dementholised mint oil, cajuput oil 13%, clove oil 1.5%. It definately is an awesome combination of ingredients! Conclusion Tiger balm is available from Boots for £4.59 for 19 grams for the red ointment and the white ointment is available for £4.59 as well. One tub usually lasts me about 6 months. You really should try out tiger ...

A Great Wireless Speaker With Dock!

Gear4 Houseparty RISE Wireless Wireless speaker with dock I brought the wireless speaker with dock in March 2013 and I brought it so that I could play loud music in the garden for barbecue parties that we hold on the weekend. It also has a USB interface and it can be connected to your computer. I often use the USB port to charge my mobile phone. I am able to stream music from any bluetooth enabled device and the quality and sound of the streamed music is excellent. The design is really modern looking and it looks really trendy. I most often stream the music from my galaxy s3 smartphone and the syncing is perfect. I am able to control the volume using my mobile phone. I often use the alarm clock function as well to wake up and this is of good quality but I often use the snooze control facility. It is not that heavy so I found it easily portable to and from the garden. I am part of an online testing group and I have found the speakers useful to conduct conference calls too. If you charge the speakers overnight it tends to last a long time. Conclusion The wireless speaker with dock is available to buy on the icheckstock website for £59.99.

Ideal for carrying around in your hand bag!

Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers Eau de Toilette Introduction about Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers Eau De Toilette I have been using Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers Eau De Toilette for many years. I recently brought another 30ml bottle of Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers Eau De Toilette from Superdrugs for £6.99. In my opinion, Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers Eau De Toilette is for casual occasions and is good value for money. I would describe this perfume as heavy and spicy and overpowering if you use too much but if you use it sparingly, I would say that it is good for everyday use as well. The staying power is very good and seems to lasts for days when I spray it on my handbag, jacket and clothes. The design of the bottle is like flat slim and straight bottle and it fits easily in my handbag as the bottle is not oddly shaped like some other fragrances. The cap of the bottle is white and is very secure and keeps the smell of the perfume intact inside the bottle. Other Information about Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers Eau De Toilette A 30ml bottle of Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers Eau De Toilette costs £8 at Tesco Direct, £6.99 in Superdrugs and £6 in Asda at the time of wiritng this review.

Panasonic RP-HGS10 07/05/2017

Open-Ear Bone Conduction Headphones!

Panasonic RP-HGS10 Open-ear bone conduction earphones I recently brought the open ear bone conduction earphones from the Panasonic brand. The speciality of this earphone is that you can hear your surroundings when listening to music. This is very useful as I have a small five month old baby and need to be able to hear my surroundings as well in case he cries when I am listening to music. The earphones are also water resistant and this is a really good thing as well so spilt milk and baby food won't affect the function of the ear phone. The sound quality is excellent even though you can hear your surroundings. The earphones use bone conduction technology and this means the music is sent from the cheekbones to the inner ear. The earphones are very comfortable to wear and I don't get any neck pains. The design looks very good and modern. The earphones have excellent durability. The ear phones are definitely good value for money. The earphones are available in funky colours such as pink, grey, white and green and they are reflective so they glow in the dark. The earphones are very lightweight. Conclusion I would definitely recommend that you buy a pair of these headphones very very soon. These earphones are available on Amazon for £32.90 at the time of writing this review in July 2015.

HG Scale Away

HG Scale Away HG Scale Away I love keeping the bathroom sink and bath really clean. Unfortunately the limescale always builds up quite badly. Recently it was my son's christening and unfortunately I got a really bad fever before it and I had to call in a cleaner to clean my parent's house before the christening because I was too sick to clean it myself. I noticed the cleaner was using HG Scale away to clean the bath and sink and it was shining like anything when they cleaned it with HG Scale away and the limescale has just vanished!
