Linx 1010B Windows tablet

Here are the full specifications of the Linx 1010B tablet:

Harman Kardon and Boston Acoustics are two of my favorite brands when talking about home sound systems (JBL as well) but if I have to choose a any of these for my next system I would be in real dilema. Both brands offer some amazing 5.1 home theater systems and for the price of around $400-500 one can get a real nice deal for a Harman Kardon or Boston Acoustics systems.

Digihome 22272FHDDVDLED LED TV and DVD player

Today, at our consumers blog we are taking a quick look at another hybrid device offered by tech manufacturer Vestel. Digihome 22272FHDDVDLED is a compact 22 inch Full HD TV with built-in DVD player.

Updated: Buying a used car: Opel / Vauxhall Astra H

Useful guide to buying a second hand car - Opel / Vauxhall Astra H (04-10)


Opel / Vauxhall Astra H used car
Second hand Opel / Vauxhall Astra H facelift model 2009









Updated: After another 10k miles the Astra still drives pretty well for a car with price tag of under 4000 Euro. I still think this 1.6 petrol engine is not made for LPG systems as it still gives me hard times (not very often but still) with the alternative type of fuel.

Buying a used car is never easy, there are so many things to check before you make the decision for
buying one and there still no guarantees you are going to make the right choice for your next second hand car. That is why we decided to start a series of useful guides for consumers when buying a second hand hand car. Today we are taking a closer look at one of the most popular vehicles in the compact hatchback segment - the Opel / Vauxhall Astra H. This is one of the biggest competitors of the leader in the segment VW Golf where the Ford Focus is also a very important player.

Universal armrest for Opel / Vauxhall Astra H

Universal armrest mounted on Opel / Vauxhall Astra H

armrest for Opel / Vauxhall Astra H

Couple of weeks ago I found a very good deal on an aftermarket car armrest for my Opel Astra H which unfortunately didn't have the stock one. Also, it was impossible to buy a second hand stock one as the driver's seat itself doesn't have the integrated mount for armrest.

Cube Talk 9X is one of the very capable tablets that we've tested these days. With its super fast  2.0GHz octa-core MTK MT8392 processor, 2 Gigs of RAM and an impressive high-resolution IPS display it really promises to be a great performer.
But it is not only performance that the Cube Talk9X offers, it is also extremely thin and has a great form factor (some compare it with Apple's iPad Air).
