Finlux 40F8030-T Smart LED TV

Finlux 40F8030-T review - if you are in the search of a big screen Smart TV with Full HD resolution than you should definitely check the Finlux 40F8030-T.
This Finlux TV has a nice ultra-slim design but unfortunately the frame of the TV is way too big which makes it  look even bigger than it really is.

Here are some beauty images of the Citroen Tubik van at the 2012 Paris Motor Show which took part this autumn.  Citroen Tubik is a very interesting concept which we first saw at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show and the fact that French manufacturer showcases this car for second year in a row may speak for a production vehicle in the very near future. We expect PSA to give their final decision about this project very soon.

Peugeot showed the facelifted version of their 2-door sport coupe RCZ. The news here is that the French car manufacturer is going to offer an even sportier R version of the already sporty tuned RCZ. Peugeot RCZ R is powered by 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine with 260hp. We had the chance to see the new car at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Here is closer look at the new 2013 Peugeot RCZ R :

Can tablets replace laptops?

Tablet practicality vs laptop functionality

can tablets replace laptops
Can tablets really replace laptops? We made a short survey to check with everyone's opinion on this question and it seems the laptops are here to stay or at least our readers think so.
As the poll shows more than 40% agree with what is our own opinion on this question - laptops won't be replaced by tablets at this point. More than 35% of the voters consider tablets to be the next leader in portable computing in the very near future. And some 24% are confident tablets can replace laptops or they have already done it.

Samsung WB750 review - Samsung WB750 is a very capable and also very affordable compact digital camera. It has 12.5-megapixel sensor and massive 18x optical zoom. 
But that is not all that impressed us in this camera. It can also record a superb Full HD 1080p (max. resolution of 1920x1080) videos with stereo sound. Samsung WB750 also has 3D function which lets you capture amazing 3D images.

 - I have noticed that since Christmas shopping began few weeks ago this compact digital shooter has been offered with some great discounts.

Currently you can find the Samsung WB720 for even less than £100. So lets see if it is any good or just another useless electronic device that looks like a good deal at first but after a while the disappointment comes.

2013 Volvo V40 Cross Country review

Volvo V40 Cross Country review - Volvo presented few new models at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and I have to say I was quite impressed with the new Volvo V40 Cross Country.

There are some obvious changes that make this capable light off-road vehicle stand out from the base V40 estate. I myself particularly liked the macho exterior styling and the compact size of the car.

Finlux 32F8030-T 32-inch Smart TV specs and review
Finlux 32F8030-T 32-inch Smart TV specs and review
Finlux 32F8030-T review - probably most of you had already began the Christmas shopping and what better choice for a Christmas present than a new TV. The market is literally flooded with offers for new LED, 3D, HD, Full HD, Smart TV etc. TVs and it would be quite hard for most consumers to pick the right one. There are two key factors when buying electronic equipment like this - specs and price.
If you have already decided that you don't want to spend a lot on new TV and made your budget on the low side than you should start looking for the best specs for your money. When talking about new LED TVs I myself usually recommend brands like LG, Samsung and Sony because they've proved reliable and offer good quality for the buck. But there is one big problem with their cheaper models - they are quite short on features. And this is the time when cheap brands like Finlux start to make sense.

If we take the Finlux 32F8030-T Smart TV for example, you will need at least £60-80 more for a similar spec LG or Samsung TV.
There are few main features that make the Finlux 32F8030-T a very good deal. First of all it is a Full HD 1080p panel  with LED back lighting. The brightness is 450 cd /m2 and the refresh rate of 50Hz is also on the low side, but this is quite common in this price segment.
The Finlux 32F8030-T has built-in media player which supports picture, music and video playback. It also supports PVR recording through the USB. The big surprise is that this is a WiFi ready TV with full Smart TV functions. Some of these include Internet and social apps like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, BBC player and some others.

And to make things complete the Finlux 32F8030-T has Freeview HD digital tuner.
As you can see this TV is almost fully loaded and the price of £230 leaves no chance for the competition.
Of course the picture quality of the Finlux 32F8030-T is also no match to this of a similar Samsung TV but that is what you get if you want to keep a tide budget.

Storage Options Scroll Pocket mini Android tablet specs and review

Scroll Pocket tablet review - I am not sure what the purpose of a mini tablet like this one would be but it seems that everything that has the 'Android' tag is instantly becoming popular.

Storage Options offers the 4.3-inch mini tablet with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and hardware which is far from impressive. The strange thing here is that the manufacturer doesn't even mention the main characteristics of the hardware of this tablet (not even on their website) like processor speed, RAM volume and some other important parameters.

Sony KDL-32EX650 Full HD LED TV review

Sony KDL-32EX650 review - this affordable 32-inch Full HD 1080p LED TV offers high quality picture and plenty of useful features. The 32EX650 is perfect for those not looking for 3D TV but don't want to compromise picture quality and functionality and we have to admit that this TV really delivers.

Sony KDL-32EX650 uses Edge LED backlight technology which is much more efficient compared to standard LCD panels. The TV supports full HD resolution of 1920 by 1080 and has dynamic contrast ratio of over 1 million.

 The relatively low refresh rate of 50Hz is not a problem because the 32EX650 uses Motionflow XR 100Hz motion enhancer which speeds up dynamic content and you get perfect vivid images with no ghosting effect.

Sony KDL-32EX650
Sony Bravia KDL-32EX650

Probably the most impressive thing about the Sony Bavia KDL-32EX650 are its connectivity options. This TV has all the ports and connections available in a modern TV including USB media player, built-in WiFi connection, DLNA, plenty of HDMI ports and many others. Connecting to your home WiFi network is easy with the WiFi Direct and streaming video is easily supported with the help of BRAVIA Internet Video application.

As a fully functioning smart TV you can enjoy all the Internet apps like browser (Opera), YouTube, Skype, Sony Entertainment Network and many others available for Bravia smart TVs.

The 7-inch 5-point capacitive touch screen has 800x480 resolution. The LCD display has good colors and viewing angles but is far from perfect. The low resolution is outdated but that is what you get for under £100.

Finlux 42F503 42-inch Full HD LCD TV

Finlux 42F503 review - this cheap 42-inch LCD TV is currently on sale at eBay for less than £300. This is a very good price for a TV of this size with Full HD 1080p picture.

The refresh rate of this TV is only 50Hz so in case you need a gaming TV or intend to watch a lot of action movies you better look elsewhere.

Fujitsu Lifebook AH512 review - this affordable laptop is the successor of some of the best selling Fujitsu laptops like the Fujitsu AH530 and the Fujitsu Lifebook AH531. Just like these capable machines the Fujitsu AH512 is focused on user friendly experience and performance offered at relatively cheap price.

LG 32LS5600 Full HD LED TV review

LG 32LS5600 review - this 32-inch Full HD LED TV is probably one of the best offers in this price segment. LG 32LS5600 has plenty of good features and specifications but the price tag is surprisingly low.

One of the main reasons for that is because this TV is offered mostly in the Eastern European market where the price is a huge factor when choosing a TV.

One of the key features of the LG 32LS5600 is that it offers very good Full HD picture in  1080p resolution of 1920x1080.

Busbi 7 tablet review - if you are in the search of cheap Android tablet you might want to take a look at this 7-inch Google Android 4.0 tablet. Busbi 7 is an affordable device which won't offer the greatest Android experience you can get from a tablet but in this price range that is nothing unusual.

Hardware - Busbi tablet relies on a single core 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor and only 512MB of DDR3  RAM. With specs like these you can expect anything else but speed. The space for storage is 4GB but that is easily expandable with the help of microSD card slot.

2013 Range Rover 4 test drive and review


2013 Range Rover 4 review - we have to admit that the latest generation Range Rover is probably the most exciting premiere of the year. This year the automotive world is focused on few new models and Range Rover 4 attracted the biggest attention.

There are plenty of innovations in the new Range Rover. It has new all aluminium chassis and aluminium engines as well. Now the big SUV is lighter, just a bit bigger but more economical than ever. Dynamics is another key feature in the new Range Rover 4. With the new lightweight construction and powerful engines the big SUV handles much better than its predecessor.
Range Rover 4 also has new or should we say revised adaptive suspension which also improves ride quality and handling.

Opel Adam review - when it was first announced this 3-door hatchback was a bit of a surprise for us and a bit strange that Opel decided to name such a small vehicle after the great name of the company's founder Adam Opel.

Google Nexus 4 phone
LG Google Nexus 4 released


Google Nexus 4 review - so here it is, the all new smartphone from Google and LG is released and ready to hit the stores. Google Nexus 4 is the successor of the wonderful Samsung Galaxy Nexus which became one of the most popular Android phones around the world. As we take a closer look at the new Nexus 4 phone we can positively say it will manage to keep and probably expand Google's positions in smartphone market. Google Nexus 4 is fast and very capable smartphone with amazing 4.7-inch curved HD display. The 320ppi screen has resolution of 1280 x 768 and has scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protective cover. The side edges of the Nexus 4 are round and they make a very nice smooth transition to the display itself, looks and feels very nice. It is definitely one of the best displays on a phone out there, very crisp with true vivid colors.
 The hardware inserted in the Nexus 4 is cutting-edge. Fast 1.5 GHz Quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM assure the fast and smooth operation of the phone. And the 3D graphics support will give you an amazing experience on the huge 4.7-inch display. Storage - the Nexus 4 is going to be offered with 16GB of built-in memory.
Google Nexus 4 smartphone
Google Live on Google Nexus 4 phone
 One interesting feature of the Google Nexus 4 smartphone is its camera. Of course it has two cameras on board, but the more exciting is the rear 8.0-megapixel autofocus camera. Google calls it Photo Sphere camera. It makes great stills and Full HD 1080p videos and has the capability of making stunning 360° panoramas. The interface is very intuitive and it is easy to navigate through different camera features. One great feature of the camera is the option of zooming in and out while shooting a video, the continuous focus will take care for the rest.

  Google Nexus 4 smartphone is equipped with all the connectivity options you can imagine. These include WiFi N connection, Bluetooth, GPS, and of course 4G. With the built-in GPS and preinstalled Google Maps this phone is just perfect for navigation. It offers you turn-by-turn GPS navigation, live traffic info, and integrated driving, walking and public transit directions. Really great features in case you lost you way somewhere or you just need some help in finding your way to your next destination.
Google Maps GPS Nexus 4
GPS Navigation on Nexus 4 is easy with Google Maps
Google Nexus 4 will run on the latest Android 4.2 operating system. It will be preinstalled with many Google apps like Google Now, Google Maps, Google Wallet, Google Play, Android Beam. Many more can be found at Google Play (Android market).

 So what is the verdict for the new Galaxy Nexus 4. Well it is very capable device and it will be in great competition with some of Samsung and HTC smartphones and of course the iPhone 5. The charismatic Google logo and the quality hardware of the Nexus 4 are definitely going to make it a real best seller no matter the high selling price of around $500 without contract. Probably it will be more appealing when offered with contracts by some of the big carriers with an affordable price tag.

2013 Hyundai i30 review
- in today's car review we are meeting you with one of the most successful Korean vehicles in last few years. Hyundai i30 was positioned at the most crowded car segment in Europe and had to face the competition from VW, Opel and Ford. We have to say that the i30 did great and now VW Golf, Opel Astra, Ford Focus and company have to watch out for every step forward of the Korean.

The latest generation Hyundai i30 was presented at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and of course we were there to capture the glory of the new vehicle. If I have to be honest I wasn't surprised at all with the car I saw there and the quality of the brand it represented.

Tablo 9.7 Android tablet specs and review

Price, features, specifications and full review of the 9.7-inch Android 4.0 Tablo tablet

Tablo tablet

Tablo 9.7 tablet review - we have reviewed couple of Tablo tablets so far and honestly they didn't show any stunning qualities. The small Tablo 7 tablet had the advantage of the low price tag and small size but that was all. The Tablo 9.7 is another story, it offers plenty of good features and specifications which make it pretty usable tablet.
First of all we are going to start with the hardware used in this tablet. Tablo 9.7 has 1GHz Cortex A8 processor (Dual Mali-400/GC800 graphics accelerator) and 1GB of DDR3 RAM. The space for storage is 16GB, expandable with up to 32GB more with an additional microSD card. One of the nice features in the Tablo 9.7 tablet is its display. The huge 9.7-inch IPS LCD capacitive multi-touch screen has resolution of 1024x768. As being an IPS display it performs much better than standard displays with bright and clear images and good visibility in direct sunlight.

Connection options in the Tablo 9.7 tablet include 802.11b/g WiFi connection, mini HDMI 1.4 port and micro USB port. The tablet also has a 3.5mm headphone jack. Multimedia features in the Tablo 9.7 include 0.3 megapixel front and 2.0 megapixel rear cameras with mic. The tablet also has built-in G sensor for gaming and automatic screen rotation. Tablo 9.7 has an average battery life of around 4-5 hours of use before it needs recharging. As I already mentioned this is Google Android tablet and it runs on the Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

Dacia at the 2012 Paris Motor Show- Romanian manufacturer Dacia showed some new models at the Paris Motor Show including the new latest versions of the Logan and Sandero. The all new Dacia  Dokker was also presented at the Show in Paris.

We have to say that Dacia is making a real breakthrough in Europe with its affordable cars and now it has vehicles in almost any popular consumer segment. The well known Logan, Sandero and Duster are now completed by the versatile Dokker which seems to be a great work companion.

Here are some pictures we took at the Show in Paris with the new Dacia models:

Skoda Rapid review
2013 Skoda Rapid at the Paris Motor Show

2013 Skoda Rapid review
- this is the all new Skoda Rapid which was presented at the 2012 Paris Motor Show last week. The car was first shown earlier this year at the 2012 Chinese Motor Show.

The Rapid has very elegant exterior and simple and yet stylish interior. It is positioned between the bigger Octavia and the smaller Fabia.

All instruments are easy to reach and use and the overall build quality is very good, especially for a car in this price segment. Skoda Rapid will be powered by one of the three petrol or one of the two diesel engines. All of them achieve great fuel economy and acceptable performance. If you need a car for sporty driving than look elsewhere.

One of the nice features of the new Rapid is the enormous luggage space it offers. Thanks to its liftback/hatchback design it can easily fit big suitcases and other stuff thanks to the wide opening of the trunk.

2013 Cadillac ATS
2013 Cadillac ATS


The 2013 Cadillac ATS is a compact luxury car wit typical Cadillac design and plenty of tech innovations.   This rear will drive sedan is a direct competitor to the king in this class the BMW 3-series, which has its latest F30 generation already for sale and it is a real best seller so far, just an amazing car.

So what different has the Cadillac ATS has to offer to the mid-sized luxury sedan customers that will make them pick the American classy over the German engineering. First of all it is the design that is a bit more appealing to the US customers than the one of the 3-series. The striking looks of the ATS may grab not just one or two customers but most fans of this futuristic V-shaped design which Cadillac is using in its latest models.

Ford Mondeo 2013 -  today at Test and Review we are going to take a closer look at the all new 2013 Ford Mondeo. The car was presented at the 2012 Paris Motor show in almost all of its versions, including estate and hybrid.

The range engines for the new fifth generation Mondeo includes two diesel and three petrol engines. All of them have very good fuel economy figures but probably the three cylinder 1.0 EcoBoost petrol engine is the most noticeable of all. This turbo engine is part of the downsizing trend that not only Ford but also many other companies are following these days. The other two petrol engines include 1.6 EcoBoost and 2.0 EcoBoost and the diesels are 1.5 and 2.0 liters.
